BASPA NON-COVERAGE

Last week, the House of Representatives passed the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act (BASPA).  The vote was 241 – 183….consisting of every Republican in favor and all but 6 Democrats opposed. And what do all these Democrats oppose?  They oppose legislation that, when an abortion is unsuccessful and a baby is born alive, would make it a crime to allow that live, born baby to die...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Ben Shapiro, writing for his website, dailywire.com. Here, from his latest commentary, is Mr. Shapiro’s take on the fallout from the shut-down of the shutdown: So, what did Democrats get from this shutdown? Here’s the full list: the perception that Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had outlasted them at the negotiating table;...

THE SHUTDOWN SHUT-DOWN

The shutdown is shut down. How did it happen? Let’s start with this, from my blog of two days ago, in which I pointed out that even a number of usually Democrat-friendly media venues were blaming them for this ridiculous shutdown. And what will the result of this  unexpected media  assessment be? My bet is that it will result in a quick cave-in by Democrats. The reason is simple and...

WHEN DO WE BLAME MEXICO?

I’ve written about this many times over the years, but it bears repeating again today. If one-tenth of the entire Mexican population, whether legally or illegally, has fled their native country to come to the United States… …why is the problem the United States, which is where they come running? Why isn’t the problem Mexico, the country they flee? And if the problem is, in...

IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING IF ANTI-SEMITISM IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL ON CAMPUS…

…wonder no more. From Rachel Frommer’s article at freebeacon.com: Over 200 Columbia University faculty, students, and alumni have pledged to boycott a New York bookstore after its owners apologized for promoting and selling a children’s book that praised Palestinian violence against Israel. The petition condemns Book Culture, an independent bookstore with a location near...

THE FISA MEMO (CONT.)

Republicans continue to do everything they can to make the FISA memo – the one that, we have been told, lays out chapter and verse of the FBI and DOJ abuse during President Obama’s administration and how it contributed to Robert Mueller’s so-far fruitless IC investigation Star Chamber – available to the public. You can read all about it in Debra Heine’s short, but...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s  quote comes to us from luis bracamontes, an illegal alien, drug user and career criminal, who has been deported from the United States multiple times but always comes back. This last time he came back, bracomontes decided it would be a great idea to kill police officers.  So he did.  Two of them:  Sacramento officers Danny Oliver and Michael Davis Jr. And in court, instead of...

AND IF YOU BELIEVE THIS ONE….

From Eric Tucker’s fascinating piece of fiction – not his, but the formerly irreproachable/now scarily compromised Department Of Justice (DOJ) – we have this:  The Justice Department has turned over to Congress additional text messages involving an FBI agent who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team following the discovery of derogatory...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from France’s young, apparently very candid, President, Emmanuel Macron. Here is what Mr. Macron had to say when asked by BBC’s Andrew Marr whether, if there were a national referendum, France would follow Britain’s lead and leave the European Union (EU):  “Yes, probably, probably. Yes. In a similar context. But we have a very different...

THE FISA MEMO: MORE ON WHAT IT SAYS

The following excerpts come from an article by Ginni Thomas, writing for dailycaller.com.  They concern an issue I, and many others outside mainstream media have raised in recent days:  what is in that FISA memo and when do we get to see it: A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and...

THE OBAMA SHUTDOWN COMPARISON: WHAT ISN’T BEING SHUT DOWN

Do you remember the 2013 government shutdown? Do you remember that then-President Barack Obama, putting raw politics above the well being of citizens, made good and sure it was as painful – unnecessarily painful – to average citizens as possible? Remember the WWII vets who came to Washington D.C. to see the monument…and were physically barred from doing so?  The countless...

THINGS FOR THE BDS MOVEMENT TO B, D & S (CONT.)

I believe in freedom of thought and freedom of speech.  I therefore believe people have every right to speak out about their demands to boycott, divest and sanction when it comes to Israel. But I also believe it is worth knowing what emanates from Israel that would be boyotted, divested (i.e. unfunded) and subject to those sanctions. Here is another in the series of advances which emanate from...

NANCY ANTOINETTE

“Let them eat cake”:  Marie Antoinette “Let them not be paid, while we eat tiramisu”:  Nancy Pelosi We will never know for sure if Marie Antoinette actually said those words, and it is not likely she meant dessert cake  – only the “cake” of dough that is scraped off cooking surfaces after bread is made. But the obtuseness of Nancy Pelosi taking all 192...
