A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT A CAR AD

Can anyone explain to me what that car commercial with some guy named Stan going into a store and everyone greeting him, followed by him going into the store and the same people who greeted him now ignoring him, followed by him getting into a car and driving, is supposed to be telling me – or why it should get me interested in buying the car? Do you even remember which car it is? OK...

THE CRUDE OIL PLUNGE

I don\’t know if it will last, but crude oil futures have dropped below $80 this morning. That, folks, is good news.  And it is almost entirely due to oil production from hydraulic fracturing (more commonly known as “fracking”), which – as I showed by presenting both sides last week – is a controversial technique of recovering shale oil. Now watch Barack Obama...

GOVERNOR CHRISTIE: A POSSIBLE RETRACTION

Earlier today I blogged about New York Governor Cuomo sandbagging New Jersey Governor Christie regarding the quarantines of people coming back to the USA from ebola-ravaged parts of West Africa. But, based on the following excerpt from an article at NBC News, I may have to retract the blog\’s commendation of Governor Christie for sticking to his mandatory quarantine edict: Thenurse...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s Quote of The Day comes to us from Audie Cornish, co-host of National Public Radio\’s (NPR\’s) “All Things Considered” show.  As you are probably aware, information was leaked last week about the grand jury investigation of Michael Brown\’s shooting and killing by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson.  This included the...

EBOLA: SANDBAGGING GOVERNOR CHRISTIE

I hope New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is into continuing education.  Because, just yesterday, he got a lesson in political sandbagging from his next-door neighbor, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. -On Friday, Governors Christie and Cuomo issued a joint statement that all doctors/other health care professionals who treated ebola patients in West Africa, and anyone else who...

COVERING FOR HILLARY. AGAIN

Yesterday I logged logged about a remarkable comment Hillary Clinton made while campaigning in Massachusetts for a Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley. At that time, Ms. Clinton informed her cheering audience “Don\’t let anybody, don\’t let anybody, tell you that, uh, y\’know, it\’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Yes, you read that...

SCOTT WALKER: HOW MUCH TROUBLE IS HE IN?

Try and find a Governor who is more hated by public sector unions than Scott Walker.  I dare you. Remember those out-of-control “protests” against him – which were, in reality, a succession of mini-riots the police (also public sector union members) seemed to be pretty much ok with?  Remember the ugly, sick rhetoric?  Remember the recall election –...

DIM BULB DEBBIE STRIKES AGAIN

I try not to blog too often about the gaffes, and lies, of Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS).  It\’s too easy. Bit this one I can\’t let go. Earlier this week, while being interviewed by (Democrat-friendly) Mark Halperin of Bloomberg News and Morning Joe, DWS made the astonishing claim that President Obama was out there campaigning for Democrats in “competitive...

SHARYL ATTKISSON\’S NEW BOOK

Sharyl Attkisson was, for some 20 years, an investigative reporter at CBS.  But Ms. Attkisson was a problem to the CBS people…because, as a professional journalist, she was committed to reporting what her investigations uncovered rather than adjusting those stories to please the partisans who run the show there. So, over a relatively short period of time, Ms. Attkisson was...

THE BEST PIZZA RESTAURANT IN MONMOUTH COUNTY

Apropos of nothing political… The best pizza restaurant in Monmouth County, if you\’re asking me, is Luigi\’s in Lincroft. (Luigi\’s Famous Pizza, to be exact). The food is delicious – especially the pizza.  The portions are very large, the prices are very moderate, and the wait staff is excellent.  What more could you want? Just thought I\’d...

A MICHAEL BROWN/DARREN WILSON Q&A

Here are the first three paragraphs of a terribly sad story about the Michael Brown/Darren Wilson investigation, written by the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch\’s Jessica Bock: TheFerguson-Florissant and Clayton school districts sent letters toparents this week with reminders of emergency procedures shouldclasses be canceled, delayed or dismissed early. Schoolstypically send reminders...

BRATTON VS. BRATTON. AND NOBODY WINS

New York City Police Chief Bill Bratton, talking about the attack on four police officers by a hatchet-wielding “man” whose facebook page was loaded with radical Islamic material: “There\’s nothing we know at this time that would indicate that [Islamic terrorism] is the case. That\’s what the investigation will attempt to determine.” New York City Police...

THE FAST & FURIOUS SCANDAL: MORE LIES UNCOVERED

Remember the Fast & Furious scandal?  It is understandable if the memory grows hazy, given that Fast & Furious is one of so many scandals and failures of this impossibly incompetent, inept, dishonest administration which have been buried by most mainstream media, that it is hard to keep them top-of-mind. But I hope you remember it today.  Because years-old information...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Hillary Clinton – who is in a lifelong competition with John Kerry to see who can spend the most time in elective and appointive office without the fewest accomplishments (they\’re still in a tie). Speaking at an enthusiastic rally for Martha Coakley – a Democrat who, having lost her senate race to Republican Scott Brown four years...

THE PARTY OF THE RICH IS…….???

We all know that Republicans are where all those rich guys are.  You know, the Koch Brothers and all those others that Democrats endlessly invoke when describing the terrible funding disadvantage they are laboring under.  Or do we? Excerpted from Fred Barnes\’ highly illuminating article at weeklystandard.com: The Democratic edge inspending, especially in key Senate races...
