Of all the foreign policy disasters visited on us hopelessly incompetent, hopelessly outmatched Barack Obama, and his utterly useless Secretary of State John Kerry, this has to be the single worst. From Bradley Klapper and George Jahn\’s article for the Associated Press, we now find out that a “deal” is being worked out to allow Iran pursuit of nuclear capabilities, based...

At last night\’s Oscars, some of the biggest cheers were given to best supporting actress winner Patricia Arquette, for her impassioned demand that women be compensated equally with men. That\’s hardly a surprise since a lot of people – quite possibly Ms. Arquette among them – are still of the belief that women\’s salaries average just 77 cents on the...

Neil Patrick Harris:  I was rooting for him to do well.  And he did a lot of the time – a couple of times he was great.  But, all in all, too overdone, contrived and snarky for my taste. Best Picture:  Neither my wife nor I liked Birdman.  Though the acting was excellent, we thought it was an annoying, way-too-cutesy inside joke for people in the entertainment...

Let me start with a conclusion:  if this were happening in a Republican administration do you think months and months would be going by with virtually no coverage, no investigative reports, no cable news panel discussions, no network news “troubling new information” teasers?  Do you think a Republican equivalent of lois lerner would be able to arrogantly take the fifth...

Two left wing web sites, dailykos.com and huffingtonpost.com – probably a great many more – are currently featuring an article by someone named Robert Naiman – the “Policy Director” at something called “Just Foreign Policy” = which appears to be at least as leftward as the two web sites. Its title, “Profiles in Courage:  38* Dems Publicly...

Here is the latest news about ObamaCare.  I doubt it will be very reassuring. According to Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar\’s article for the Associated Press: -Our highly efficient, eminently frugal government has given something like 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers the wrong tax information from the government; -This means about 1 million people will see a delay in...

Suppose evidence was uncovered that a Republican congressperson – no one in a leadership, just a Republican congressperson – was accused of making an overt offer to sell his/her vote for personal gain.  How fast do you think the media would be on top of it? Now, what about if the congressperson were in a leadership position – say, head of the Republican National...

MSNBC – which, viewership-wise, has been in a tailspin for years – has now started to do something about it which, the network obviously hopes, will reverse its fortunes. According to Lloyd Grove, writing for the Daily Beast, Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid, two weekday afternoon hosts who have drawn little viewership, are out (though both, at least on paper, will remain with the network in...

“I do not believe, and I know this is a terrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America.  He doesn\’t love you and he doesn\’t love me.  He wasn\’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country:  Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani Strong words.  Hard, provocative words. ...

It is currently 42 degrees in Miami – tied for the city\’s all-time low for this date. In central New Jersey it is currently 2 degrees, a new record by, if I\’m not mistaken about 5 degrees.  Ditto for New York City, and probably countless other cities up and down the east coast. And that\’s not all.  According to Angela Fritz\’s article in...

Is it just me or does North Korea\’s kim jung-un\’s new hair style… …look like he shaved the sides of his head a little further up, and someone sprayed on a nice, thick layer of Flex-Seal… …that stuff they advertise on TV for sealing roof leaks, hoses, duct work, foundations, downspouts, drip pans, etc? Just asking.

Barack Obama is my President, and he is missing a verse, so I think I\’m going to help him out. He says that ISIS (actually he says ISIL, but no one else does), al-qaeda, etc. are perversions of Islam That\’s where the missing verse comes in.  They are not perversions of Islam, they are perverse versions of Islam.  And there is a big difference. A perversion of Islam...

The latest on Sheldon Silver, just two months ago, one of the two most powerful men in New York State (the Governor might – might – have been more powerful), has been indicted by a Grand Jury on three of the five federal corruption charges he was originally accused of. His career as a power broker?  Over.  Period. His career as a state assemblyman?  Well...
