A NOTE TO THE LOST TRIBE

A quick note to the “Lost Tribe” (regular readers know who they are): As of now, Barack Obama will not be present for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu\’s address to a joint session of congress in March. Nor will Vice President Joe Biden. Nor will many (I\’m suspecting most) members of the Congressional Black Caucus – led by Reps Lewis and Butterfield (so...

TRAIN ANGST

About a half hour ago I was driving on Bethany Road in Hazlet, NJ, toward a railroad crossing.  The lights flashed and the wooden bars went down…and, for a moment, my mind flashed to that horrible tragedy in Valhalla, NY (just north of New York City) where a car had been hit by the bars as it was crossing the tracks….and, instead of continuing to safety, the driver got...

BROKAW FOR GOING

More lies by Brian Williams have turned up – this time about when he was reporting about Hurricane Katrina. Excerpted from John Simerman\’s article for the New Orleans Advocate: Williams\’ account of seeing a bodyfloat by in the French Quarter – which remained largely dry -and even a claim of catching dysentery from drinking Katrinafloodwaters have raised eyebrows...

WHICH MUSLIM “LEADERS” DID PRESIDENT OBAMA MEET WITH?

Suppose it were President Bush.  Suppose he met, secretly, with “leaders” of a religious group with branches responsible for killing people by the tens of thousands.  Suppose he refused to say which “leaders” he met with or what they discussed.  Do you think mainstream media would be all over it? Then explain most of mainstream media\’s virtual...

KITZHABER\’S ACCOMPLICE MEDIA

As noted in an earlier blog, yesterday, Oregon\’s largest newspaper – and a long-time supporter of Democrat Governor John Kitzhaber – called on him to resign. I just googled “John Kitzhaber Oregonian Resign”.  And, on the first three pages, I found reports on this remarkable turn of events for the Washington Post, Fox, and CNN.  I did not find...

BARACK OBAMA ON WHY RADICAL ISLAM IS NOT ISLAMIC

This is not satire.  It is Barack Obama, verbatim, at a prayer breakfast this morning: Froma school in Pakistan to the streets of Paris, we have seen violenceand terror perpetrated by those who profess to stand up for faith,their faith. Professed to stand up for Islam but, in fact, arebetraying it. We see ISIL, a brutal, vicious death cult that in thename of religion carries out unspeakable...

KITZHABER\’S LAST STAND?

Do you know who John Kitzhaber is?  If you live in Oregon you know him as Governor Kitzhaber.  But, despite his assurances that he will not resign, that title may very soon be ex-Governor Kitzhaber.  And, if the editorial board at The Oregonian – Oregon\’s largest newspaper – and one which not only has no ax to grind against Kitzhaber, but...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Joe Scarborough, the increasingly erratic namesake of MSNBC\’s “Morning Joe” show. It seems that, during yesterday\’s confirmation hearing, Ashton Carter – President Obama\’s selection to replace Chuck Hagel as Secretary Of Defense – said he would consider sending arms to the Ukrainians to use...

BRIAN WILLIAMS: HONEST MISTAKE OR HILLARY HOOEY

I want to believe Brian Williams.  I am not trying to be sarcastic, I really do.  But I don\’t know how I can. As you may be aware, Mr. Williams, the anchor/managing director of NBC Nightly News since 2004, has claimed, for years – and as recently as last Friday – that during the 2003 invasion of Iraq he was on a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire and...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from the President of the United States, Barack Obama. Here is what Mr. Obama had to say about the radical Islamists of ISIS burning a captured Jordanian pilot alive: “Should in fact this video be authentic, it\’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And I think we will redouble the vigilance and determination...

IS RADICAL ISLAM ISLAM?

Is radical Islam a branch of Islam?  President Obama says no.  He will not use the term Islam when talking about it.  But is he right? Excerpted from John Hall\’s article in the London Daily Mail: Asickening video has emerged showing crowds of Islamic Statesupporters watching the barbaric murder of Jordanian pilotMoaz al-Kasasbeh on specially erected giant screens...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAHHH (CONT.)

If the final score of a baseball game were 17 – 0, you\’d probably say it was a complete rout.  And you, of course, would be right. With that in mind, consider the fact that the Los Angeles Times just published a 17 paragraph article on – by the reporter\’s own admission – a dozen people protesting the proposed canonization of of Father Junipero Serra, who is...

FARINA INTEL

Apropos of nothing political….. I like hot breakfast cereal.  Wheatena is a personal favorite, but some mornings it\’s too heavy…plus, my wife has told me what she thinks it looks like in terms that, sanitizing this as best I can, do not enhance its ingestive appeal. Farina, by contrast, is lighter, easier to get down, and my wife has not offered an opinion...

ISIS STATUS

Now that it turns out ISIS – currently in control of enough of Syria and Iraq to declare its own country – killed the Jordanian pilot and the Japanese newspeople before demanding hundreds of millions of dollars in ransom for them, remind me:  is this the group President Obama told us was virtually decimated or the one he called the jayvee squad. Oh, that\’s...

ABOUT THAT 5.6% UNEMPLOYMENT RATE…..

Does anyone – besides Barack Obama, his acolytes, and the low-information crowd that is – think the bogus 5.6% unemployment level being floated these days means anything positive? I would hope not.  But just in case, Jim Clifton, the Chairman and CEO of Gallup, has written a terrific essay showing it up for the rancid pile of mung that it is. You can read Mr...
