THE BLOG BLIP

As you may have noticed, this blog shut down for the past hour or two.  Apparently there was some kind of cyber-poltergeist at work.  But Martin, the talented intrepid webmaster (along with Larry – but Martin happened to be the contact du jour) somehow found it and everything is back to normal. Sorry for the inconvenience (assuming you like my blog, that...

RUSSELL BRAND\’S “TAKEDOWN” OF SEAN HANNITY & ISRAEL

Billy Sample is a former major league baseball player who, for years, has been a baseball announcer and, this past year, wrote, co-produced and starred in a movie (Reunion 108). Billy and I are facebook friends (through a mutual acquaintance).  And, though we have never met, we have discussed/argued about politics in that forum – no problem at all finding disagreements since Billy...

LOIS LERNER\’S “NEUTRALITY”

This blog entry is for anyone who is still gullible enough to believe anything lois “liar” lerner says, or that she was in any way neutral. lerner, you may recall, headed the IRS\’s tax exempt division when, as a matter of course, organizations seeking 501(c)4 tax exempt status, which had names suggesting opposition to President Obama, were put in limbo for years while...

THE PRESIDENT\’S “ILLEGAL ALIEN SUMMIT”

As I type this, President Obama is winding up a “summit” of sorts with the Presidents of Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala – after which there will be a press conference.  If Mr. Obama is at all serious about maintaining the integrity of our borders, he has told them to immediately stop the flow of illegal aliens across those borders – especially Mexico, which the...

CHUCK TODD: IGNORANT OR DISHONEST?

For the first time in months (and maybe the 2nd or 3rd time overall), I watched a small portion of Chuck Todd\’s “The Daily Rundown” show on (where else?) MSNBC. Those few moments vividly reminded me of why I have so little regard for Chuck Todd. Todd was doing a segment on the flood of illegal aliens coming across our borders from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and who...

IS TED CRUZ A “BLITHERING IDIOT”?

Ted Cruz is a United States Senator.  While at Princeton University, he won a raft of awards for his debating talents.  Mr. Cruz graduated Princeton cum laude, and then graduated Harvard Law School magna cum laude.  Alan Dershowitz – certainly no fan of Mr. Cruz\’s politics – characterized him as “off the charts brilliant”. So why would I ask...

THE NEW YORK TIMES: REVERTING BACK TO FORM

Last week I blogged about a New York Times editorial which, unlike its strongly slanted coverage of the Israel-hamas conflict, provided an honest assessment of how the conflict came to be and who was doing what. Here is its last paragraph: Can we possibly hope that, after many years of being far more critical of Israel than of the people who are committed, in writing, to vaporize the country and...

SHANEEN ALLEN (CONT.)

Last week I blogged about a Philadelphia woman named Shaneen Allen, and the fact that she was facing years in prison for making an honest, unintended mistake – being in possesion of a gun she legally obtained in Pennsylvania when driving in New Jersey which, unbeknownst to her, does not recognize the Pennsylvania license.  To refresh your memory, when Ms. Allen, a single...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote – and if he really said this, it is beyond incredible – comes to us from Secretary Of State John Kerry. Kerry made a shiva (condolence) call on the family of Max Steinberg, a 24 year old Woodland Hills, California native who joined the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and was killed in action last week.  According to the Los Angeles Jewish...

ISRAEL/HAMAS: THE WASHINGTON POST GETS IT

There is a terrific editorial about the Israel-hamas conflict in today\’s Washington Post.  I usually would post key excerpts and a link…but since I cannot find even one word to leave out, here it is in its entirety: TheU.S. should push for the disarming of Hamas in Gaza-Israel cease-fire THEDISTINGUISHING feature of the latest war between Israel and Hamas...

APPEASING IRAN: OUR REWARD

In 2009, when hundreds of thousands were marching for freedom in Tehran and other Iranian cities, President Obama declined to speak out, on the grounds that it was another country\’s internal affairs – a position which reversed 180 degrees when Israel announced it was building a few hundred residential housing units in Jerusalem (if you\’re wondering how, at this point...
