OIL

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures settled at $44.45 a barrel yesterday.  It is still trading under $45 as of now (about 10:20AM). In June it was trading at about $108. Is this good news?  Depends on who you are.  It sure is for consumers.   And it doesn\’t trouble me a bit that it is putting the wood to countries like Russia, Venezuela and Iran, among...

A NOTE, AND A QUESTION, FOR THE LOST TRIBE

A note, and a question, for the Lost Tribe – i.e. theJews, and non-Jews, who support Israel but still support Barack Obama. Iran is on record as intending to wipeIsrael off the face of the map.  It is building a nuclear capability to dojust that. Barack Obama\’s reaction? To have economic sanctions on Iran lifted, thus freeing up billions and billions of dollars for...

YOO HOO…….HILLARY…….ARE YOU OUT THERE SOMEWHERE?

There is a rumor floating around that Hillary Clinton may testify at the latest Benghazi hearing (which, with Trey Gowdy as chair instead of Darrell Issa, may actually get some results). If so, it will be nice to see Hillary again….given that, other than a one-day jaunt to Canada, she has not headlined an event since December 15th of last year, and is not scheduled to do so again...

LORETTA LYNCH ON JOBS: LEGALS = ILLEGALS

I do not have the verbatim transcript yet.  But, in this morning\’s confirmation hearing, Loretta Lynch, appointed by Barack Obama to replace eric holder as Attorney General, informed us that people who are here illegally should have equal dibs on jobs with legal citizens. She tried to dance around the question, but that is what she said. Ms. Lynch also made it clear that the de facto...

CHARLES BLOW\’S SON

Charles Blow is a New York Times op-ed columnist.  He has a son who attends Yale University. On Monday, Mr. Blow\’s column was an impassioned account of his son being stopped, while walking from the library to his dorm, by an officer – with gun drawn – who told him to to identify himself, asked a number of other questions, and eventually let him continue on his way. It...

OBAMACARNAGE (CONT.)

Here\’s a little bit of news most mainstream media won\’t be providing you with…because it reflects badly – very badly – on ObamaCare. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), ten million people will be pushed off of employer-based insurance coverage by 2021.  Originally, it had projected just one million. Ten million?  Up from one...

BLIZZARDS AND BLAME

There are people – a good number of them, evidently – attacking Governors Cuomo of New York, Christie of New Jersey, Malloy of Connecticut and Mayor bill de blasio of New York City for overreacting to the blizzard that, for the most part, turned into little more than a good-sized snowfall (as opposed to Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, where it was everything the forecasters...

OBAMA\’S ISRAEL LIE

Why will Barack Obama refuse to meet with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu when he comes to the USA in March to address a joint session of congress?  Because, according to the party line spouted by Obama & Co. for the past week, Israeli elections are later that month, and President Obama has a “long-standing policy” of not interfering with other...

THE MARCH FOR LIFE BLACKOUT – EPILOG

As we talked about last week, mainstream media again imposed a virtual news blackout on the March For Life, which is held in Washington D.C. every year on January 22, the anniversary of Roe V Wade. And, as I point out every year when it happens, regardless of your position on abortion, it is an absolute disgrace that the same media which will fall all over itself to report a few hundred...

THE DEMOCRAT LOVE AFFAIR WITH AL SHARPTON (CONT.)

You\’ve got to be kidding.  The President makes him a regular guest at the White House, New York Mayor bill de blasio treats him like they\’re going to be picking out furniture together, and now the Mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut? The fact that this career racist, Black supremacist, anti-Semite, deadbeat, tax cheat is anywhere near a seat of power is sickening under any...

THE “BLIZZARD OF 2015”: MORE BLUSTER THAN BLIZZARD

Well, we did get a major snowstorm.  But compared to the doomsday scenarios being played out on media, we got off very, very lucky. I can\’t tell for sure yet (I\’m not particularly disposed to walking out wearing nothing but a terrycloth robe, and wading through snow with a ruler), but it looks like less than a foot to me.  That ain\’t exactly...

WHY NETANYAHU SHOULD IGNORE OBAMA\’S THREATS

Marc Thiessen, former Republican speechwriter and currently a Washington Post columnist (among other things), has written an excellent, compelling piece on why Israel\’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, should ignore the threat and insults emanating from the Obama administration – undoubtedly with Barack Obama\’s personal imprimatur – and follow through on...

HMMMM, LET ME CHECK ON THAT……

I just got this from our pal Baby Sitter Jeena.  I have no idea whether it is true.  But it gave me a much-needed laugh. Maybe it will do the same for you: =============================================================== UPDATE:  To any disappointed females of my acquaintance:  Please keep in mind that Jews do not circumcise their thumbs.

WEATHER UPDATE

As we approach midday, I note that less than one inch of snow has fallen in our part of central New Jersey and, currently, it is not snowing at all. I would call that good news, were it not for the fact that it is pretty much exactly what the weather service is telling us would happen….before we get nailed with 18″ – 24″ yet to come. God I hope they\’re...

UNLOADING ON THE UNLOADERS

As the Obama administration unloads on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…so does New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin unload on the Obama administration.  And no administration ever deserved it more. Here is the beginning of Mr. Goodwin\’s latest column*: Thoushall not cross Dear Leader Withtheir guttersniping failing to stop Prime Minister BenjaminNetanyahu\’s...
