THE SANDERS CANDIDACY

Vermont Public Radio (VPR) is reporting it has learned, via several sources, that Senator Bernard Sanders, an “independend” (actually, a self-described socialist who caucuses with Democrats) will announce, on Thursday, that he is seeking the Democrat nomination for President of the United States. Can Sanders win the nomination?  No.  But can his candidacy make it clear...

PRESIDENT OBAMA EXPLAINS BALTIMORE

Here is as much as I could take of Dylan Byers\’ article, for politico.com, in which President Obama explains/rationalizes what is happening in Baltimore.  His words are in rust, mine are in blue: President Barack Obama on Tuesday said America needs to do some “soul searching” to break the cycle of clashes between police and the communities they serve.  That is...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from David A. Clarke, sheriff of Milwaukee County:  a man who knows a thing or two about what it takes to keep order in a major city. Here is what he had to say about Freddie Gray\’s death and the rioting/looting which is now taking place: “Like Baltimore, like Ferguson, like New York and many other areas, where failed liberal government policies...

BALTIMORE: WHEN I WISH I WAS WRONG

Obviously, when I blog an opinion I think I\’m right – otherwise I wouldn\’t be blogging it.  And, also obviously, I usually feel good when my opinion turns out to be correct. But there are times when I wish to god I would be proven wrong.  And yesterday was one of them. From my blog titled “The Rawlings-Blake Effect”, in which I castigated Baltimore Mayor...

THE RAWLINGS-BLAKE EFFECT

In case anyone doubted what would happen after Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told the street thugs of Baltimore they had a green light to “destroy” as long as they were within the protest marches (her exact words:  “we gave those who wished to destroy space to do that”) – in effect, allowing the thugs to use legitimate protesters as human shields...

A SICK, PARTISAN PROSECUTOR WITH A NAZI STREAK

Last week I wrote about a rogue prosecutor in Wisconsin, named john chisholm, who hates Governor Scott Walker with a passion and has mercilessly gone after his supporters in the most sick, gestapo-like way I have ever seen used by someone in his position. Well, now chisholm apparently is threatening Governor Walker himself.  For the crime of telling the public about the actions...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.  Here is her explanation of how she views procedure when there is rioting on the streets of the city she is sworn to uphold the laws in.  The bold print is mine: I\’ve made it very clear that I work with the police, and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today\’s paragraph comes to us from Eleanor Clift, a virtually 100% Democrat-friendly, Hillary-friendly source.. …but one who has started her latest blog for dailybeast.com with this: It\’s a mistake for the Clinton campaign to write off conservative author Peter Schweizer as a right-wing hack. It won\’t work, and it\’s not true. If he were as off-base as...

BLACKS LIVE MATTER? TO WHO? ABOUT WHAT?

Here are the first few, and last few, paragraphs of an excellent piece by Daniel Greenfield, writing for frontpagemagcom (I have to think it is excellent, because it parallels what I have been blogging about for months) which talks honestly – and tragically – about the “Black Lives Matter” protesters/rioters/looters/racists: Baltimore has the fifth highest...

EDIBLE DOGS

Apropos of nothing political…. In some societies, dogs are considered perfectly acceptable food. Mine (and, I\’m reasonably certain yours) are not among them.  But here\’s a way to serve an “edible dog” that takes about 2 minutes to put together and will make any table a major conversation piece. No need to explain how it\’s done, you can see the answer...

HILLARY CLINTON: EVITABLE (CONT.)

Is Hillary Clinton\’s nomination by the Democrat Party inevitable? Excerpted from S. A. Miller\’s article for the Washington Times: A top Democratic moneyman recruited by Hillary Rodham Clinton\’s presidential campaign has put fundraising activities on hold, saying he can\’t do it with a clear conscience because the former secretary of state has too many unanswered...

REARRANGING THE DECK CHAIRS ON THE U.S.S. CLINTON

Excerpted from Lucas Jackson\’s article at reuters.com: The Clinton Foundation\’s acting chief executive admitted on Sunday that the charity had made mistakes on how it listed government donors on its tax returns and said it was working to make sure it does not happen in the future.
