A STATEMENT AND A RESPONSE

President Obama (stated):  “I\’ve got a pen, and I\’ve got a phone, and that\’s all I need” The U. S. Supreme Court (via its rulings): We have a bigger pen and a bigger phone.  The constitution is all we need.  Try using it someday.

CONGRATULATIONS TO TEAM USA FOR LOSING

Today, Team USA lost to Germany 1 – 0.  And, by losing, it advanced to the next round….because someone else lost as well. Congratulations are in order, I guess. I probably should be a soccer fan.  The one year I went to Saint Louis University (1963-64) it won the NCAA championship – and tied the U.S. Olympic team.  In fact, two players (Leahy and McBride, I...

UNSMEARING SCOTT WALKER

A week ago I wrote two blogs this one and this one – about how mainstream media were smearing Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, by making it seem as though he was part of some criminal fundraising scheme – when, in reality, a) no charges had ever been filed against him because b) two different judges, one federal and one state, both threw the charges out on the grounds that they...

THE SUPREME COURT: SYTEMATICALLY UNMAKING A KING

Today, the Supreme Court ruled that those “recess appointments” President Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) last year – the ones that were made when congress had not recessed, are null and void. The vote?  9-0.  Even Obama\’s own, left-liberal, appointees were not buying. But here\’s something that only today became aware of: ...

PALESTINIAN ARABS: AN “AS IF WE DIDN\’T KNOW” POLL

Do Palestinian Arabs want a “two state solution” – i.e. the “solution” that the United States, and most of the rest of the world, are demanding that Israel (not Palestinian Arabs, just Israel) work hard, and make sacrifices, to achieve? I would hope that most people realize the Palestinian Arab government – which is now entirely under the thumb of hamas, a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote – and it is a truly astonishing one, given that it was made by someone who claims to be a journalist – comes to us from NBC/MSNBC\’s Chuck Todd. Todd, it seems, cannot figure out for the life of him what the problem is with the Internal Revenue Service – arguably the most feared government agency there is, unless you are on the FBI...

THE LIE-RS SCANDAL: STILL MORE

No matter how bad this stinks, the stench keeps getting worse. Look at what Patrick Howley of dailycaller.com uncovered, and reported in his latest blog: TheIRS prematurely “retired” data-storage devices and filled out”disposal” documents for hardware that still existed and wassupposed to still be in use, according to a Sept. 24, 2013 TreasuryInspector General...

MERIAM IBRAHAM & NETWORK NEWS

Do you know who Meriam Ibrahim is?  Not if you rely on CBS, NBC or ABC for your news you don\’t. So if you\’re one of those unfortunate souls, let me tell you. Ms. Ibrahim is a Sudanese national who was born Muslim,  butconverted to Christianity.  No big deal, right?  Well, in medieval countries like Sudan it is.  Last year Ms.Ibrahim...

THE GREAT -2.9% NEWS

Did you know that the 2.9% contraction in our first quarter-2014 GDP is not bad news?  That, actually, this was just a facet of bad weather and, in reality, the economic news is very good? Me neither.  But that is what they are selling at CNN.  And Yahoo.  And CBS.    ABC and the New York Times?  As I write this it is not on either...

THAD COCHRAN\’S WIN

Generally conservative incumbent Thad Cochran (R-MS) appears to have squeaked out a primary victory over unconditionally conservative tea party favorite Chris McDaniel. Cochran probably won by convincing enough Mississippi Democrats – who are unlikely to ever vote Republican in the general election – to cross over and vote for him this one time. The funny part? ...

THE -2.9% NON-SOLUTION

Remember how awful the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) performance was in the first quarter – no growth, and actually down 0.1%?  Remember when it was revised – even further downward – to minus 1.0%?  That was a horror show. Well, there has been another revision.  Latest data show that our first quarter GDP is actually -2.9%. Since I would not blame you for thinking...

THE LIE-RS SCANDAL (CONT.): EVEN MORE PROOF

This is for anyone left who still believes the Obama administration is not covering up the IRS\’s targeting of groups likely to be critical of President Obama during Mr. Obama\’s 2012 re-election campaign. Excerpted from yesterday\’s article at foxnews.com: Thetop U.S. official in charge of archiving federal records testifiedTuesday that the IRS ran afoul of the law by...

TREY GOWDY DISMEMBERS JOHN KOSKINEN

Rep. Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy (R-NC) – a former prosecutor and solicitor, with an impeccable reputation and highly successful conviction rate – will chair the select committee investigation into the Lie-RS scandal.  This has enraged Democrats.  But I have to believe that they are even more fearful of Mr. Gowdy than they are angry. Want a taste of...

THE VA SCANDAL (CONT.)

With all the news about the Lie-RS scandal, and the lightning-fast deterioration of Iraq from tenuous democracy to shari\’a law state (courtesy of ISIS – the terrorist offshoot of al qaeda, which President Obama told us, during the 2012 election campaign, was all but nonexistent), the VA scandal is getting less attention than it should. It\’s not like the VA scandal is going to...
