THE ISRAELI ANSWER TO SCHOOL TERRORISM

Excerpted from Lawrence Meyers’ article at townhall.com: In 1974, Israel endured the Ma’alot Massacre in which “Palestinian” terrorists took 115 people hostage at Netiv Meir Elementary School.  Twenty-two children and three others were killed and 68 injured.  Israel now requires schools with 100 or more students to have a guard posted. The civilian police force handles the entire...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY). Rep. Yarmuth, ranking member of the House Budget Committee, has a problem with the fact that Nancy Pelosi characterized the money in bonuses, raises and lower tax rates that millions of families have received due to the new tax legislation, as “crumbs”…and has continued to do so even after being heavily criticized...

AL HIRT: HINDUSTAN

Apropos of nothing political… …if you want to know why I have always loved Dixieland Jazz, and always revered Al Hirt’s mix of that great American art form with his classical training (Cincinnati Conservatory of Music), this wild, take-no-prisoners version of the dixieland classic, “Hindustan”, should give you a pretty good idea – right down to the last...

REX TILLERSON’S LEBANON MEETING

With a tip of my imaginary hat to Adam Milstein, here is U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, during his current Middle East swing, being made to wait before speaking with Lebanese foreign minister Gebran Bassil, then President Michel Aoun: In December, it was announced that we will be giving Lebanon $120 million in miltary aid.

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes from U.S. Senator and possible 2020 presidential candiate Kamala Harris (D-CA). After the Parkland massacre, this is what Ms. Harris had to say: “We cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered.” FYI:  this is the same Kamala Harris who supports late-term abortions – when the child is formed...

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RECANTATION

Remember when mass murderer nikolas cruz was a White supremacist? If you’re not sure of the timing, let me be of assistance.  It was when the head of a tiny White supremacist group, who no one in media gave a damn about or would believe a word from, said he was.  And since that was, as the saying goes “too good to check”, the Associates Press, along with countless other media...

AS THE LEFT BLAMES PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR THE PARKLAND MASSACRE…..

….will someone please explain to me what he had to do with it? I await any response from anyone at all. But, while I’m waiting I will note that in 2009 and 2010 there were a total of 18 school shootings (not the BS count touted by media this week, but actual incidents in actual schools with actual shooters trying to hurt/kill students and teachers.)  And during those two years...

THE MUELLER INDICTMENTS

If this doesn’t prove Robert Mueller’s investigation Star Chamber has nothing, and is grasping at any straws it can grab, I don’t know what could. From Dan Mangan and Mike Calia’s article at cnbc.com (and please pay very special attention to the parts I’ve put in bold print):6 A federal grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for...

THE WASHINGTON POST’S SANCTIFICATION OF CHRISTOPHER STEELE

I keep wondering how low the Jeff Bezos-owned Wasington Post can sink….and keep finding out the answer is even more than before. Now, one of its significant editors has gone public with her fawning adoration for Christopher Steele. You might recall that Steele is the former British agent who was hired by opposition research organization Fusion GPS to put together what remains a wholly...

THE NIKOLAS CRUZ WHITE SUPREMACIST FAKE NEWS

It was all over yesterday’s news:  nikolas cruz, the “man” who killed 17 and injured many others in Parkland Florida’s high school was a White supremacist. The Anti-Defamation League came out with this “news”, the Associated Press picked it up, and it was everywhere.   So it must have been true, right? Uh….no. It turns out that the only basis for this...

TWO QUICK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET

On January 26th, the dow jones average was at its all-time high of 26,616,71.  By February 8 it had plummeted to 23.860.46. Our media were providing non-stop coverage of the drop, with no small number of commentators pointing to Donald Trump, who was taking credit for its amazing run-up after his election and insisting – with considerable justification – that he should also be taking...
