HILLARY’S LATE-ENTRY POLICE SPEAKERS

Today, some media venues are reporting that Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee have been shamed into inviting – well, trying to invite – a couple of  pro-police speakers for their convention this week. Maybe the outcry over their having invited the mothers of three Black men whose killings were magically turned into racial incidents – despite NO EVIDENCE that...

THE BEST PIZZA IN MONMOUTH COUNTY

Apropos nothing political… For my money, the best pizza you can get in Monmouth County, New Jersey is at Luigi’s on Route 520 in Lincroft. It’s not easy to get there if you’re traveling East, because if you don’t want to make an illegal left, you have to go past the place, into the shopping center which comes afterwards, then reverse field.  But it is well worth the...

PROTECTING RADICAL ISLAM

The name of the terrorist murder who killed 9 people at a McDonald’s in a mall in Germany is ali david sonboli The British Broadcasting Company has unilaterally decided to remove his first name and call him david sonboli.  No ali. How nice of the BBC.  How accommodating. Scrub the obvious reference to Islam from his name. Yep, that will strike a blow for World Peace, won’t it?

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ RESIGNS

Media are now reporting that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned as chair of the Democratic National Committee, effective at the end of the convention. The bad news for DWS is that she goes out reviled by the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. The good news for  Schultz is, mission accomplished: she did everything she could to make Hillary Clinton the Presidential nominee and it...

TEEN TITANS – OVERT RACISM?

I’ll make this short and to the point: As I type this, our granddaughter is watching a children’s show called “Teen Titans” It has a Cyborg character with dark skin, which talks with a stereotypical ghetto accent, complete with ghetto slang. Did the Black character really have to talk like that? Hey, why stop there?  How about an Irish Cyborg with a Lephrechaun hat that...

THE CLINTON/KAINE TICKET AND THE RUST BELT

Will the selection of Tim Kaine as Hillary Clinton’s Vice President nominee lose her the “rust belt” states she needs to win the election? Read this excerpt from a commendably candid article by the New York Times’ Amy Chozik and Alan Rappeport, then decide for yourself:” Appearing comfortable in his new role as Mrs. Clinton’s top cheerleader and weapon against Mr...

THE JAYVEE SQUAD AT WORK AGAIN

To the New York Times’ credit, this article is in its online edition (I can’t find it in today’s newsstand edition, but that might be because it happened too recently to be included): The Islamic State claimed a bombing that left at least 80 people dead Saturday at a peaceful demonstration in the Afghan capital of Kabul, raising fears that the group may be extending its reach...

WHEN A LIBERAL/LEFT PUBLICATION REPORTS A REPUBLICAN ADVANTAGE….

You have to laugh. It is all over the internet that, at the Republican convention, Ivanka Trump introduced her father wearing a dress from her design collection that she, or anyone else, could buy off the rack for $138… …after Hillary Clinton made a speech about income inequality while wearing a $12,000 smock (not the entire outfit, just the smock). Game, set, match Republicans. And...

IS DWS DOA AT THE DNC?

Just how damaging is the Wikileaks dump of something like 20,000 Democrat National Committee emails? Damaging enough for CNBC to report that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has chaired the DNC for years, is not going to be speaking at this week’s National Convention. Excerpted from its just-released web site article: The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the...

IN CASE YOU THINK FACEBOOK AND TWITTER ARE THE ONLY ONES….

We are at a pool with our beautiful granddaughter, but I just took a look at my smart phone and noticed that on politico.com, with news swirling throughout the internet about the 20,000 emails released by WikiLeaks, with their devastating information about the DNC and media complicity, there is not one word on the website.  Nothing but feel-good articles about Tim Kaine. For the record, here is...

IN CASE YOU THINK FACEBOOK IS THE ONLY ONE…

I have written several blogs about the obvious partisan-left political agenda pursued by Mark Zuckerberg and his facebook.com But just in case you think this is some isolated situation, please read the following excerpt from Rudy Takala’s piece for the Washington Examiner: Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Christopher Dickey, who edits The Daily Beast web site. This is Mr. Dickey’s wit and wisdom regarding the latest terror attack, in Munich, the terrorist attacks that have taken place throughout Europe, and their connection – so help me – to the Republican National Convention: “Just over a week ago. I think, Brian (Williams of MSNBC), one of the things this...

TIM KAINE AS A “MODERATE”

As long as I’m reconsidering Tim Kaine, let me reconsider my initial belief that he was a “moderate” – one that was largely based on mainstream  material I have read over recent times (when do I ever learn?) From Paul Mirengoff’s article at powerlineblog.com: The mainstream media likes to portray Kaine as a “centrist” and a “bridge builder.” The reality is...
