ADVERTISING FOR ILLEGALS

I urge you to sit down before reading this, and not to be ingesting food or drink. As noted in Tony Lee\’s article at breitbart.com, the Federal Government has agreed to allow the repatriation of Mexicans who have “voluntarily deported themselves from the United States (as opposed to the government deporting them, which the law says should happen to just about every illegal)...

GLOBAL WARMING: WAS AL GORE RIGHT?:

From Al Gore\’s lecture, upon accepting the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in “educating” us about Global Warming: “LastSeptember 21, as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun,scientists reported with unprecedented distress that the North Polarice cap is “falling off a cliff.” One study estimated thatit could be completely gone during summer in less...

WHERE IS MICHAEL BROWN\’S POLICE RECORD? WHERE IS OFFICER WILSON\’S HOSPITAL RECORD?

While we\’re on the subject of what is and isn\’t news….. It is now three weeks since Michael Brown was shot and killed by Police Officer Darren Wilson. -Why can we not see Michael Brown\’s juvenile record?  Why is Missouri being sued to make it public since, once he is dead, there no longer is a privacy issue preventing its being made available?  Why...

THE YAZIDI DISASTER: WHY IS NOT NOT NEWS ANYMORE?

Remember the Yazidi? They are a small sect (estimated at less than a million followers) who mostly live in the Kurdish part of Iraq – or maybe lived would be more accurate. Do you remember that tens of thousands of them had fled up a mountain, and were besieged by ISIS murderers?  That they had no food and water. Do you remember what a big story this was – until Barack Obama...

AN EXCELLENT WASHINGTON POST EDITORIAL

This editorial appeared in yesterday\’s edition of the Washington Post.  I usually excerpt material of this nature and comment on it afterwards.  But in this one instance, I am posting the entire piece with no subsequent commentary at all.  Because it doesn\’t require any. With great respect for what it took for an Obama-supporting enterprise like the Post to...

DOES JOE SCARBOROUGH HAVE A BRAIN-EATING AMOEBA?

Sometimes I think one of those brain-eating amoebas has somehow gotten inside the head of former Republican congressperson/current MSNBC morning show host Joe Scarborough, and every now and then decides to take a bite. My latest suspicions were aroused because of his “analysis” (if you can call it that) of President Obama\’s startling admission that he has no...

NEROBAMA

Nero famously fiddled while Rome burned. President Obama doesn\’t play the fiddle, but he\’s definitely got some Nero in him. Here, drawn from Justin Sink\’s article at the hill.com, are a few of the things he said yesterday at a DNC barbeque: “Ican see why a lot of folks are troubled….Theworld\’s always been messy…We\’re just noticing now in...

WAS MICHAEL BROWN ARRESTED FOR 2ND DEGREE MURDER?

Let\’s start with the fact that I do not know if this is true. Saying it again:  I do not know if this is true. That said, Charles C. Johnson, of something called “Got News”, claims to have solid information that Michael Brown, as a juvenile, was arrested in a case involving second-degree murder – and is suing for release of Brown\’s...

BENGHAZI AS THE ORPHANED KID

We\’ve all heard the one about the kid who kills his parents, and then pleads for mercy because he\’s an orphan. Here is the political version – courtesy of this except from Jonathan Weisman and Jennifer Steinhauer\’s article in today\’s New York Times: AHouse Republican-led investigation of the 2012 terrorist attack on anAmerican diplomatic compound in Benghazi...

WHAT DOES THE ISIS FLAG SAY?

Is it just me, or does the ISIS flag…   …look a little like an English version of “all Jews SOS”? I\’m sure it means something in Arabic that I don\’t like, but, bizarrely, it looks like it is saying something in English I don\’t like either.

HOW NOT TO SELL ACURAS

What ever possessed Acura to put out a commercial which features the Sid Vicious version of “My Way”?  It is intrusive – so intrusive that it overwhelms any attention to the car…which is what it presumably is trying to get me interested in.  It is obnoxious.  It is cacophonous.  And it is a true turn-off – as in I turn off the...

THE DEFINING QUOTE OF THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY

I am not making this up.  I am quoting straight from the article at cnn.com.  Today, Barack Obama said this about ISIS – which has been in existence for four years, which has grown exponentially over the past year right in front of his face, which currently controls enough money and land to declare a state of its own, which continues to...

A Q&A YOU WON\’T BELIEVE

Here, pulled from an incredulously written article at thelid.com, is a Q&A between the hard-left, Ronan Farrow, who hosts a virtually unwatched afternoon show on (where else?) MSNBC, and Philip Agnew, a Black activist and Executive Director of something called Dream Defenders, who is one of the organizers of a day that students will walk out of class (just what students...

THE AUTO BODY AD OF THE DECADE

Apropos of nothing political…. This actual TV ad was sent to me by our pal Toy Insurance Bob.  See if you think it is as entertaining as I do: And we all thought Sister Sledge was gone…  Ok, back to politics – where the we have hundreds of people in congress with sledgehammers, who don\’t stop after a few shots, but continue until they\’ve...
