LOW CLASS IS AS LOW CLASS DOES

Texas Governor Rick Perry was at a Dallas Restaurant on Thursday.  A woman, introducing herself as “Amanda” asked if she could have her picture taken with Perry.  He graciously obliged.  And this is what she did when the picture was taken. The picture was immediately posted on the partisan Democrat web site juanitajean.com, where the poster tells us...

THOMAS JACKSON GETS WHAT HE DESERVES

Yesterday Thomas Jackson, Police Chief of Ferguson, Missouri, apologized for, among other things, the death of Michael Brown. Why did he apologize before the investigation is completed and findings disclosed?  Is an apology in order if it finds that Police Officer Darren Wilson acted correctly, and Michael Brown, a 6\’ 4″ 300 pound man whom we now know had just robbed a store and...

THE ILLEGAL MELTING POT

Many years ago, New York City was dubbed “The Melting Pot”, because so many different ethnicities lived among each other successfully, drew on each other\’s cultures and, at least to some degree, assimilated. Today that term is taking on a different meaning.  Today we see the illegal aliens, being shipped across the country by Barack Obama and his henchmen – with...

BARACK OBAMA: THE BENEFITS OF BEING BLACK?

Does Black skin insulate Barack Obama from criticism? That point has been raised many times over the years of his presidency – including by me, in the context of his supporters screaming “racism” whenever he is criticized. But does it extend to his inconsistent, often belligerent performance as commander in chief? The following two quotes were pulled from Dana Milbank\’s...

THOMAS JACKSON\’S “APOLOGY”

Ferguson, Missouri\’s Police Chief, Thomas Jackson, has apologized. To who and for what? -To the parents of Michael Brown for the fact that their son laid on the ground for four hours before being taken to the morgue – an apology which should have been made…..well over a month ago. -To the peaceful protesters for being “upset and angry” – an apology which...

ERIC HOLDER\’S RESIGNATION

Attorney General eric holder is announcing that he will resign. Good.  Too bad he can\’t take his mentor with him. Today is Rosh Hashanah, so I can\’t blog more completely about this, or other stories (actually it\’s a pretty big news day). Maybe later this evening.

SHANEEN ALLEN – FINALLY THERE IS JUSTICE

Justice delayed may be justice denied. But belated justice is better than none at all.  Ask Shaneen Allen. As you may recall (you certainly do if you\’re a regular reader here, because I\’ve been blogging about it for almost 2 1/2 months), Shaneen Allen is a 27 year old single mother of two.  Ms. Allen, who lives in the Philadelphia area, works at two jobs...

ISIS AND FERGUSON, MISSOURI

Did you know that ISIS (the Islamic State In Syria) is comparable to last month\’s shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri? I hope not.  Because the two could not be more dissimilar. But when no less an authority than the President of the United States makes the comparison, you at least have to listen. This is what he said yesterday at the UN, in the context...

A HUSBAND & WIFE THING

So, this evening, my wife and I were driving from my sister\’s house in Queens, home to central New Jersey. We had the radio on and Hugh Jackman was singing a song from “The Boy From Oz”. My wife said “That Hugh Jackman.  What a great singer. And good looking too”.  I made the mistake of trying to be a wise guy, and answered “What does he have...

WHEAT: A SOMETIMES THING

Ken  Berwitz Apropos of nothing political: Wheat bread is delicious. Wheat breakfast cereals?  Ditto.  Hot and cold both. But wheat spaghetti?  Give me regular pasta every time. And I speak from experience (like 5 minutes ago).  Ok, back to politics, where we usually get the chaff.  And yes, that can also be a bad pun.

SUSAN RICE LIES TO US AGAIN

Susan Rice, one of the Obama administration\’s paid liars, was interviewed by Matt Lauer on this morning\’s Today Show.  She earned her keep. Why do I say this?  Well, here is just one exchange between Lauer and Rice.  I doubt I have to go any further to give you your answer: MATTLAUER: Think of the things we\’re talking about here, with thekhorasan...

THE NATIONAL DO-NOT-CALL REGISTRY

Years ago, I entered our phones in a do-not-call registry. However, in the past 6 – 9 months, we have been increasingly inundated with unwanted telemarketing pitches. For that reason, I have contacted the national do-not-call registry and re-registered the numbers…in the hope it will give me another few years of relatively telemarketer-free service before this happens...

THE DEPARTMENT OF JUST-US: PEACE BY CENSORSHIP

I just read Trymaine Lee\’s article at MSNBC\’s web site about the upcoming town hall meetings in Ferguson, Missouri, which I am excerpting below.  See if you find it as utterly ridiculous as I do: To keep peace in Ferguson, DOJ bars media from town hall meetings Cityleaders in Ferguson, Missouri, have billed a series of upcoming townhall meetings beginning Monday night as...
