Local TV News Said WHAT?! About Trump’s Supreme Nomination

By Debbie Schlussel


The Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony Ever

Unless you live on another planet or inside a mushroom, you probably know that tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, President Trump will announce his latest Supreme Court nomination (and I hope there are more–Notorious RBG, it’s time to go). Given the importance of this nomination to our country’s future, I was a little surprised at what topped off my local TV station’s newscast tonight. Read the rest of this entry »

America’s Birthday: We’re Lucky to Be Here; Sadly the Enemy is Here, Too

By Debbie Schlussel

Independence Day Fireworks @ Mount Rushmore. 2008

So America turned 242 today, and as we approach our country’s sestercentennial (or quarter-millennial), we must ask ourselves these questions: is it too late? Have we lost our country? Yes, even with Donald Trump in charge and doing a great job, hasn’t America become a mediocre nation that is losing its moral bearing and sense of reason and sanity?

I’ve been away unexpectedly to fight the good fight, including representing a career female American Army veteran who was captured, raped, and tortured in Iraq (I am doing this pro bono), as well as representing Congressman Kerry Bentivolio, who is a disabled Vietnam and Iraq war veteran with over 27 medals and awards earned (and for whom I urge you to vote in the August primary, if you live in his district. And I’ve been working on some other stuff I hope to announce soon on this site. But I can’t miss our nation’s birthday and take stock in where we are. Read the rest of this entry »

Comey Interview: The ONLY Thing I Learned From James Comey

By Debbie Schlussel

So I watched last night’s much-overhyped James Comey interview conducted by ABC’s George Snuffalopagus. And all of it seemed like a rehash of talking points we’ve heard over and over and over again. But there’s one thing–and one thing only–that I learned from the interview–one thing that I think is very important and undercuts anything he says (and which reinforces what I’ve been telling his blind GOP fans for years): Read the rest of this entry »

Stormy Daniels: Is That All There Is? Bill Clinton Innoculated Us Against This Stuff

By Debbie Schlussel

Last night, like many Americans (though not as many as they thought), I watched the “60 Minutes” interview with porn star Stephanie Clifford a/k/a “Stormy Daniels.” And, when it was over, I had just one thought: Read the rest of this entry »

7 Days in Entebbe – Disgusting Palestinian Propaganda

By Debbie Schlussel

Israel’s 1976 raid on the Entebbe, Uganda airport is one of the most daring, heroic, and successful rescue missions ever. And the trailer for the movie, “7 Days in Entebbe” (Rated PG-13)–in theaters today–pretends to agree with that assessment. But it’s a bait-and-switch, a cruel tease by a poisonous snake. The movie is actually a disgusting, boring exercise in bulls–t to the nth degree, and nothing more than anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian propaganda. This flick is simply a flat-out lie. Don’t support this tripe by going to see it. Read the rest of this entry »

Oscar-Nominated Crap: The Shape of Water

By Debbie Schlussel

I’m waaay behind in my online movie reviews (you can always hear my current reviews live on Larry The Cable Guy’s SiriusXM show most Friday mornings and on the Richard Dixon Show on Birmingham, AL’s Talk 99.5 every Friday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern). But I wanted to catch up and post reviews of Oscar-nominated movies for which I haven’t yet posted a review. Most of them are horrible. And I’m starting with the highly overrated “The Shape of Water,” which is Rated R. Read the rest of this entry »
