THE OSCARS

Apropos of nothing political (well, ok, everything political, just a different area of politics): I usually write a blog within a day of the Oscars detailing which people/films I expect to win in the major categories – and which I think should win (often not one and the same). This year, in part because other news superseded it and because I just didn\’t have the time...

THE WASHINGTON POST\’S AWAKENING

Over the past five years, The Washington Post has not been a complete suck-up to President Obama.  But it has usually been right in the mix. Not today, though. The latest display of Mr. Obama\’s astonishing lack of competence in foreign policy (among other areas) – i.e. his latest feckless interaction with Vladimir Putin of Russia – has resulted in a blunt...

JOHN KERRY\’S SABERLESS SABER RATTLING

Is Secretary of State John Kerry really this incompetent?  This obtuse? First his boss, President Barack Obama, comes out and “warns” Vladimir Putin that there will be “costs” if he goes into the Ukraine.  Putin, fresh from taking Mr. Obama to the cleaners in Iran and then Syria, then shows how worried this makes him by sending in troops within 24 hours of...

OLIVER NORTH AND CHRIS COONS

Oliver North:  former military guy, now talk show host, who was neck deep in Iran-Contra, and US Senator Chris Coons (D-DE).  How\’s that for an odd couple? But, however improbably, both of them were making a ton of sense today when discussing the situation we are in with Russia. I can\’t put up exactly what each man said (I\’ll look for a transcript at some...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote (with a tip of my imaginary hat to Brent Baker at newsbusters.org), comes to us from none other than the President of the United States, Barack Obama.  It was stated  on October 22, 2012, during his last debate with Mitt Romney. After Mr. Romney spoke of the geo-political threat posed by Russia, this is what President Obama had to say: “The1980s are now...

SO PATHETIC EVEN ACCOMPLICE MEDIA CAN\’T PROTECT HIM

The headline, and sub-head on my hard copy of the New York Times reads:  KREMLIN DEPLOYS MILITARY TO SIEZE CRIMEA, REBUFF TO OBAMA Would Putin have done this – literally one day after being warned by President Barack Obama, if he had any concern in the world that Obama would back up his warning? We elected a Chicago machine politician, with no qualifications for the office of...

THE DARTMOUTH DEMANDS

This is not a joke.  And, yes, I could have used the title “Real Racism” for it. From Sandor Farkas\’s article at thecollegefix.com – not a satire but a real article: Agroup of disgruntled students at Dartmouth College sent an 8-pageprotest letter to leaders of the Ivy League institution Mondaycalling for reparations for what they claim is the...

PUTIN CRAPS ON OBAMA. NOW WHAT?

You had to see this coming 100 miles away. As excerpted from article in Alison Smale and David M. Herszenhorn\’s article in today\’s New York Times: As Russian-backed armed forces effectively seized control of Ukraine\’s Crimean peninsula on Saturday, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia requested that the Russian Senate authorize him to use military force in...

REAL RACISM (CONT.): A HEADLINE THAT SAYS IT ALL

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”   – George Orwell, 1984     You can\’t make this stuff up.  This headline is pulled straight from whitehouse.gov, where it was put up two days ago and remains intact to this moment: FACTSHEET: Opportunity for all: President Obama Launches My Brother\’sKeeper...

“NONPARTISAN” PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

Here\’s a quote that you will have trouble believing you saw.  But it is a quote, nonetheless…straight from the mouth of cecile richards, who heads Planned Parenthood, who said it yesterday during Ronan Farrow\’s new show on (where else?) MSNBC: “Weare not a partisan organization. We\’re just looking to make sure thatpeople in office respect...
