THE NEPAL DISASTER: A QUICK OBSERVATION

As I am sure you know, there was a disastrous earthquake in Nepal yesterday.  As I write this, an estimated 2,200 are dead, with the number sure to rise far beyond this already-horrific number.  Countless people are homeless and countless buildings are either destroyed or teetering on compromised foundations and uninhabitable. My observation:  If this had happened not in Nepal, but...

OBAMACARNAGE (CONT.)

So how is ObamaCare doing these days?  Well, let\’s check in with California – a showcase for this wonderful program that allows us to keep our doctors if we like them, keep our insurance policies if we like them, and saves every family an average of $2,500 a year – to find out. Excerpted from an editorial in the Orange County Register: After two previous...

HONORING THE MEMORY OF FREDDIE GRAY

More than 1,000 people joined an orderly 90-minute rally at Baltimore city hall demanding justice for Freddie Gray, who died last...

A QUICK QUESTION…

Is it just me, or do you also find it incredibly unseemly for Bill Clinton\’s wife to make a speech, as Hillary Clinton did yesterday, in which she rails about “the continuing scourge of sexual assault”? Isn\’t that a little like Bernie Madoff\’s wife railing about “the continuing scourge of stock market fraud”? Just asking….

OREGON: REPLACING SEX DISCRIMINATION WITH RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

Anyone who reads this blog certainly knows that I stand 100% in favor of gay rights and 100% in support of gay marriage. I feel this way because I believe in freedom, and could never accept the persecution and destruction of anyone for living their own lives or for having sincere, personally held beliefs. So why would I, or any other reasonable person, support the persecution and...

BRIAN WILLIAMS – DON\’T COUNT ON HIS RETURN

Remember Brian Williams?  A few months ago he was riding high as the anchor of NBC Nightly News, the highest-rated network news show. Then it came out that he had made up several stories about his past and embellished others.  So NBC, not wanting to damage its reputation for credibility (there are those who are now asking “what credibility would that be?”) suspended him for...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from outgoing Attorney General, the disgraceful toady and Obama sock-puppet eric holder. This is what he had to say about his 6 years in that position – and I swear I am not making it up: “This department is restored. It\’s restored to what it always was and certainly…and what it always must be. Free of politicization, focused on the...

FOUNDATIONGATE: THE PLOT SICKENS

The Clinton Foundation scandal deepens by the day.  It has quickly moved ahead of the other Clinton scandals, and – at least as of now – appears to be the most significant threat of them all to Hillary Clinton\’s candidacy.  The latest information, from Sarah Westwood\’s article for the Washington Examiner, is that: Twenty-two of the 37...

HERKINS

Apropos of nothing political…. We spoke to our dear friend Sharon, who used to live near us but, for the past 20 years, has lived in North Carolina. She told us that a friend – also originally from the Northeast – was approached by someone selling raffle tickets for a worthy cause and agreed to buy a number of them.  The friend asked what the prizes...

FERGUSON: THE CONSEQUENCES OF TRUTH

Suppose you are an actor.  Suppose you land a role in a play called “Ferguson”, which is about the shooting and killing of Michael Brown by Police Officer Darren Wilson. Suppose the play consists of little other than a reading of the actual grand jury testimony taken after the shooting/killing took place – not embellished, just word for word what actually was...

ATTORNEY GENERAL LORETTA LYNCH

Barack Obama favorite and eric holder fan, Loretta Lynch, has been confirmed by the United States Senate, and will be our new Attorney General. Based on the fact that, during her confirmation hearings, Ms. Lynch ducked question after question regarding how she would run the Justice Department, but was kind enough to tell us that illegal aliens have exactly the same rights to get jobs as...

MARTIN O\’MALLEY IN HOLLYWOOD

Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President – by videotape.  She then got into her stealth van and did a 1,000 or so mile drive — for what particular reason I have to say I cannot figure out, since the only publicity it got her seemed to be people scratching their heads the same way I was.  Now Ms. Clinton – who is avoiding the press like Dracula avoiding...

THE CLINTON FOUNDATION SCANDAL: WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

In a previous blog I wrote that, whatever else you could say about The Clinton Foundation, it does good charitable work around the world. And that is true….if you ignore the fact that 85% of the money donated to it never gets to the people it is supposed to help. From Sean Davis\’s illuminating – and devastating – article for thefederalist.com, issued on March 2: The...
