FORTUNOFF\’S LOWEST PRICES

We spent a delightful morning and afternoon down the Jersey Shore, and at various shopping venues on Route 35.  One of them was at Fortunoff\’s Backyard Store in Eatontown, which advertised that they have “the lowest prices of the season”.  Is it just me, or did the season start today?  Because if I\’m right, these are not just the lowest prices of the...

HILLARYPCRISY

Excerpted from article at dailybeast.com: Hillary Clinton may be running for president as a champion for the middle class, but the Clinton Foundation\’s interns do not get paid. “Businesses have taken advantage of unpaid internships to an extent that it is blocking the opportunities for young people to move on into paid employment,” Clinton said at UCLA in 2013. “More...

EXPLAINING BALTIMORE AWAY

Now that a newly-elected, thoroughly inexperienced Baltimore State\’s Attorney, who is deeply involved with the lawyer for Freddie Gray\’s family, has brought charges against 6 police officers that seem almost impossible to prove in a court of law, the rioters/looters/arsonists who trashed the city earlier this week have largely stopped doing so.   Now we are seeing...

MAYWEATHER VS. PACQUIAO

It has been so many years since I cared to watch a boxing match that I know virtually nothing about the sport.  I don\’t even know who the heavyweight champion is – something which, not so many years ago, would have been unthinkable for just about anyone, regardless of his/her interest in boxing. But I have heard enough hype about tonight\’s welterweight...

THE ENDURING “BRIDGEGATE SCANDAL”

Over recent weeks I have written about Hillary Clinton\’s email scandal – in which she ignored protocol, used personal accounts for email while Secretary Of State, then claimed she scrubbed only her personal emails…though the emails she saved had virtually nothing from the Benghazi period.  I call that a scandal.  But I don\’t see any mainstream media calling it...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT CRIMINAL JUSTICE IN BALTIMORE

Now that the Baltimore 6 have have been charged, I have a quick question for Baltimore State\’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake: This week there were riots in the streets of Baltimore.  Police officers were verbally threatened and physically attacked.  Police cars were smashed.  Many stores were looted and destroyed.  Buildings were set on...

THE GOFUNDME.COM & INTOLERANCE

When the owners of Melissa\’s Sweet Cakes – a young couple with a family to raise and strong Christian beliefs, was put out of business because it declined to put a gay-marriage message on a wedding cake, and then fined $135,000 for this apparently horrific crime of the century, it attempted to get help by using a leading fundraising web sit, gofundme.com. Gofundme.com...

A DISTURBING, RACIST NEWS STORY

Here, with a hat tip to Matthew Balan at newsbusters.org, is the transcript of a news report, aired Thursday morning on CNN.  See if you find it as disturbing as I do: NURITH AIZENMAN: The window was smashed Monday night at the height of the riot. Someone also threw a brick through the front door, but that\’s the extent of the damage. Yvonne Gordon works at the...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Jason Riley, Wall Street Journal columnist and member of its editorial board. Here is Mr. Riley\’s take on the claim that there is an epidemic of police killing innocent young Black men, and the riots/looting/arson we have seen after several such alleged police killings this year: “When the Watts riots happened, Watts had a substantial and...

WAS FREDDIE GRAY HIGH ON POT AND HEROIN?

Here\’s a little something to think about regarding whether the Baltimore 6 will be convicted any major criminality in the death of Freddie Gray. Yesterday, Sean Hannity had a Baltimore police officer on who claims that Freddie Gray\’s autopsy has uncovered both marijuana and heroin in his system. The officer also states that this was not some random grab of a Black man for no good...

THE BALTIMORE SIX

Here, folks, are pictures of the six Baltimore police officers being charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Take a look and see if you notice anything: Well, well, well.  Three White, Three Black and a woman. Do the protesters/rioters/looters/arsonists still think this was a racial incident?  Are they still dancing in the street over the criminal charges that have been filed? I...

THE (INEVITABLE) CRIMINAL CHARGES

  To the surprise of no one, I would think, Baltimore State\’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby  has charged 6 police officers in the death of Freddie Gray.  Of course she was going to do this. If she did not, there would have been spontaneous riots in Baltimore and many other cities around the country.  The politics of the situation made her decision inevitable. That said...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAHHHH

The first two paragraphs of Curtis Houck\’s blog at newsbusters.org tells the story (and a lot more if you use the link and keep reading): With the coming and going of the network evening newscasts on Thursday, the Clinton Foundation scandal blackout stretched into a full week since it was last covered on ABC\’s World News Tonight with David Muir and NBC Nightly News while the CBS...

HILLARY CLINTON\’S DEMOCRAT ATTACKERS

We all know that Republican presidential candidates will be attacking Hillary Clinton.  And most of us know that mainstream media, which has had an ongoing love affair with Ms. Clinton for decades, will either ignore, downplay or “answer” many of these attacks on her behalf. But what about when her fellow Democrats attack? Martin O\’Malley, former Mayor of...
