THE “COALITION”

In the previous blog, I derided the “coalition” being claimed by President Obama and his people. In that connection, please read the following transcript, which I pulled from Tom Blumer\’s blog at newsbusters.org, of Fox News\’ Sheppard Smith interviewing President Obama\’s Press Secretary; the amazingly unfortunately named Josh Earnest: JOSHEARNEST:...

BOOTS ON THE GROUND: WHY THERE?

Suppose you read this excerpt from, say, Time Magazine\’s web site.  What would you think: The United States is dramatically escalating its efforts to combat the spread of ISIS in Syria, Iraq and beyond, President Barack Obama announced Tuesday, during a visit to the Pentagon in Washington D.C. The unprecedented response will include the deployment of 3,000 U.S. military forces and...

WHY WE MUST FIGHT RADICAL ISLAM (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz With all the attention being paid to ISIS (and all of it fully justified), it is good to remind ourselves of what kind of world we would live in if these lunatics ever took over. And the best way to do so is to note what kind of a world it is where they have taken over. Like Iran, for example. Excerpted from an article at billboard.com: Adefense lawyer in Iran says six young Iranian...

25 REALLY LOUSY PREDICTIONS

Every day we hear predictions from various “pundits” of various disciplines – most often the political variety these days.  And, more often than not, they dispense their wit and wisdom with an air that suggests there is no doubt whatsoever about the veracity of their issue – that they could not possibly be wrong.  It\’s enough to give a regular...

THE CHAD TAYLOR DEBACLE (CONT.)

There\’s news on the Kansas Senatorial front. The Kansas Supreme Court, which is “dominated by democratic appointees” (so says the New York Times) has voted that Chad Taylor, the Democrat primary winner, thus Senate candidate, can withdraw from the race – even though his withdrawal letter does not meet the legal criteria for doing so. They must have learned their law...

CHRISTIE CLEARED – NETWORKS VEERED

Are you aware that, after an intensive nine month federal investigation, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been cleared of having anything to do with the closing of several lanes on the George Washington Bridge for a few days last year? I\’m sure you recall the story itself.  How could you not, given that every mainstream media venue known to mankind made leering allegations...

IN CASE YOU THINK IT IS ONLY CNN…..

Yesterday I put up a whimsical little blog about a mistake CNN made while reporting the Scottish secession vote, in which it showed the then-current tally of 52% in favor and 58% against; a total of 110%. But CNN ain\’t the only one. Excerpted from an article at ABC News in Australia: AnIndian television news anchor has been sacked after referring toChinese president Xi Jinping as...

THE SCOTTISH SECESSION MOVEMENT: KILT.

Scotland voted 55% to 45% in favor of staying a part of the United Kingdom – thus avoiding several potentially disastrous situations which would have occurred if it had seceded….and creating others based on how the UK convinced (maybe bribed is a more accurate word) them to stay. I don\’t know where to go with this one.  At least not yet.  Let\’s watch, listen...

FACILITATING ISIS

Let me start with a question:  do you want members of ISIS – the radical islamist terrorist group which has taken over about 75,000 square miles of Syria and Iraq, routinely tortures, crucifies (physically, not verbally) and kills its enemies – Muslim and otherwise – by the thousands, and has specifically threatened to do the same in the United States, to have valid U.S...

OBAMACARE UPDATE

So how is ObamaCare doing these days?  You barely ever hear a thing about it from our mainstream media — understandable given that a few NFL football players being disgustingly violent to their family members, is much more important than whether or not our health care system is working. Investors Business Daily had an editorial about this just yesterday, which I think…actually, I...

THE MOST BUSTED NAME IN NEWS

Ok, ok, I admit that it\’s probably just an inadvertent error (I think). But you have to admit that this screen capture from CNN\’s reporting of the secession vote in Scotland, taken between 3PM and 4PM, is a bit of an eye-catcher: It\’s hard to win, even with a 52% majority, when the other side has 58%.  Or, maybe, 10% of the exit poll sample answered...

SCOTS ON THE ROCKS?

Though we won\’t know for sure until later today, the vote to determine whether Scotland will stay part of the United Kingdom or become an independent country appears to be very close. It would be difficult to overstate the importance of this vote – which could literally create a war between Scotland and the rest of the UK over who gets what and for how much – and...

ISIS IN JUAREZ? WHEN WILL WE BE ATTACKED?

If you have any common sense at all, this probably will be no surprise to you. (If you don\’t, stop reading now; there\’s nothing for you to see). Excerpted from an advisory from judicialwatch.com: Federallaw enforcement sources in El Paso say that a United Statescongressman called their office to prohibit contact with JudicialWatch in the aftermath of a disturbing...

FREEDOM OF SPEECH, PENN ST.-STYLE

No need to explain this one.  Just read along. As excerpted from Ashley Pratte\’s article at breitbart.com: Jolie Davis, chair ofher YAF Chapter, had copies of the Constitution as well as literature at thetable informing students of Penn State\’s “speech code”policies. On the 8,500acres of Penn State, there are only 12 small spaces designated as...
