ISRAEL – CONSIDERING THE OPTIONS

How many times have I written about the likelihood that, if a “deal” is struck with Iran that allows it the means to create nuclear weaponry, Israel will be forced to consider a military option?  How many dozens of times? From Ari Yashar\’s article at israelnationalnews.com: As world powers and Iran reach a deadline Tuesday – which may be extended – for...

ONE MORE THING ABOUT CHRISTIE

Having read several of the web sites reporting Chris Christie\’s presidential candidacy, and noting the tidal wave of viciously nasty comments from Christie detractors about his weight… …I wonder how the Christie haters making those comments would react to people who commented that Hillary Pants-suit could stand to lose 40 or so pounds?  Would they be offended? ...

WHAT CHRIS CHRISTIE IS UP AGAINST

Today Chris Christie launched his campaign to become the Republican\’s 2016 presidential nominee. According to Scott Whitlock, writing for newsbusters.org: ABC\’s Good Morning America on Tuesday used Chris Christie\’s presidential announcement as an opportunity to remind viewers just how unpopular the Republican looks. Yet, co-anchor George Stephanopoulos and guest Matt Dowd...

A LETTER TO CLARENCE PAGE

Our pal Toy Insurance Bob sent this to me.  It is billed as a letter to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune, after Mr. Page had written a column attacking the Washington Redskins football team for what he (and a good many others) consider to be its offensive name. I do not know if the letter is real.  But, frankly, I don\’t care.  It is so entertaining I\’d want to...

AVON A GREAT TIME

It is a little past noon.  I am sitting with my beautiful wife on the beach at Avon By The Sea, which is “down the shore” in New Jersey. The temperature is in the low 80s, with almost no clouds in the sky. There is a cool, refreshing breeze.  I\’m with my best friend and the love of my life — who just happens to be the same person.  It doesn\’t get...

DONALD TRUMP\’S FIRING

NBC, jumping on the bandwagon of its partner, Univision, has in effect “fired” Donald Trump.  His Celebrity Apprentice show will no longer air. (I\’m guessing this would have happened anyway, since – at least for the moment – he is a Presidential candidate). But, in addition, the Trump-sponsored Miss Universe Pageant will not be shown. This...

THE UNITED STATES OF ILLEGAL ALIENS

Have Barack Obama and his fellow democrats intentionally opened the floodgates for illegal aliens to come into the United States? Before you answer, please read the following excerpts from Paul Bedard\’s article for the Washington Examiner: Despite claims the administration was caught off guard, the White House and four Cabinet departments predicted last year\’s surge of at...

OUR JULY 4TH TERRORISM ALERT

Are you aware that a terrorist threat has been issued for the July 4th period? From Bill Keveney and Kevin Johnson\’s article at USA Today: Federal authorities have warned local law enforcement officials across the country about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th holiday, a U.S. law enforcement official said. While there was no specific or...

GREECE

Prime Minister asks for calm, as….. -Banks shut (until Thursday, at least), -ATMs will dispense a maximum of 60 euros (currently $67.20 US) per account, regardless of how much it contains or how desperately the money is needed. -The country, generally, is on the verge of absolute chaos. And if you think this is only Greece\’s problem, see what it does to the euro, the European...

WHEN SIMPLE MEDIA BIAS ISN\’T ENOUGH

It has happened again. The Obama-era State Department, not content with the level of media partisanship Mr. Obama already gets, is trying to censor conservative venues when all they are trying to do is attend a briefing. Excerpted from Adam Kredo\’s article at Obama & Co\’s most recent victim, freebeacon.com: VIENNA-Officials with the Department of State threatened to call...

GOVERNMENT AND MARRIAGE

Even if you would not vote for an individual, he/she might have positions on individual issues you agree with, and find very worthwhile. The latest instance of this happening to me is with Rand Paul, who – though he opposes last week\’s Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage, has this to say in an essay published by time.com: The government should not prevent people from making...

THE USA AS IRAN\’S ALLY

Israel National News is reporting that the USA (i.e. Barack Obama and John Kerry), along with the five European nations involved in “negotiating” (if you can call it that) with Iran, will agree to their being no inspections of its nuclear facilities. If this report is true – and the history of these “negotiations” being what it is, that is a very great...

JOHN KING AND HILLARY CLINTON BIAS

I have always assumed that bias is so ingrained in some media people, they don\’t even know when they\’re displaying it for everyone to see. Yesterday morning, CNN\’s John King provided us a classic example of this phenomenon, with his commentary at the end of his “Inside Edition” show. Here is what he said – in rust, with my comments in...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from one ernesto “che” guevara – the communist revolutionary, fidel castro confidante, and mass murderer, who has been dead for almost 48 years. The quote, taken straight from his “Motorcycle Diaries”, is: “The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of...
