CARL BERNSTEIN: TWO ADMISSIONS

Ken Berwitz Here is Washington Post writer Carl Bernstein\’s take on the CNBC debate: “I think it was a bad, badnight for Jeb Bush. I think it was a bad night for Trump and for Carson. Theydidn\’t deliver the way they were expected to. More than anything, MSNBC was  –  I\’m sorry, CNBC was really reprehensible.  “But we got a real lookat the...

EDUCATION: A NATIONAL SCANDAL, A NATIONAL TRAGEDY

Ken Berwitz Our children are not being educated, and we are falling further and further behind the rest of the world. Doubt me?  Read this chart: Are we teaching political correctness?  Entitlement?  Probably a great deal of it.   Are we removing disruptive students from classrooms?  Probably not as much as we should. Are we removing incompetent teachers from...

CHRAZY CHRIS STRIKES AGAIN

Ken Berwitz I hope you don\’t need me to explain why I\’m posting this latest in the “Chrazy Chris Strikes Again” series.  I hope his quote about the CNBC travesty last night, in which the three stooges moderators ignored issues, instead asking one intentionally loaded question after another, is explanation enough: “This got a little revolting tonight...

DEDICATED TO “AHMED THE CLOCKMAKER”

Ken Berwitz With a tip of my imaginary hat to our pal, St. Louis Jerry: Enjoy Qatar, you fake phony fraud….and please keep your father there with you.   Oh, one other thing:  It is now a week and a half since Barack Obama had ahmed mohamed to the White House.  A week and a half for mainstream media to make note of the fact that his...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz There are several potential Quote Of The Day winners today – all of whom called out either the CNBC jokes who asked questions during yesterday\’s debate or, more generally, the mainstream media so many of which are every bit as biased as the three CNBC stooges: But, fierce though the competition was, Ted Cruz is today\’s winner.  After being asked the latest...

THE DEBATE: FURTHER THOUGHTS

Ken Berwitz I would like to expand on my bleary-eyed, quickly-written recap of yesterday\’s Republican debates (that plural is not a typo – I\’ll explain why further on).   I saw Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz as the big winners, because both voiced intelligent, compelling visions of how they would lead the country if elected.  In saying this, I would also point out that...

THE REPUBLICAN DEBATE – A BEYOND IDIOTIC FIRST QUESTION….AND THEN A COMMENTARY ON THE REST

Ken Berwitz One question in and I\’m thisclose to watching basketball instead. The first question asked of Republican candidates by Carl Quintanilla (paraphrased):  “What is your biggest weakness – and don\’t say things like I try too hard” I swear that is what was asked of them. We have economic issues.  Military issues.  Health care issues...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraph comes to us from John Hinderaker, writing for powerlineblog.com. It concerns Hillary Clinton\’s “accomplishments” in Libya: One of Hillary Clinton\’s key weaknesses as a presidential candidate is her poor record as Secretary of State. In that respect, Libya is critical. Hillary was the key driver behind our Libya policy. It was...

ACADEMIC BROWNSHIRTS: HIGH SCHOOL DIVISION

Ken Berwitz In case you are under the misapprehension that academic brownshirts are only found in our colleges and universities… …please read the following excerpt from Casy Harper\’s blog at dailycaller.com.  It concerns Jordan Wooley, a 7th grader at West Memorial JuniorHigh School in Katy, Texas, (just west of Houston), a school assignment she and her...

HILLARY: ACCOMPLISHMENTLESSNESS STILL SELLS

Ken Berwitz Does Hillary Clinton need to have any actual accomplishments for her loyal minions to continue supporting her? Watch this video, which I pulled from Daniel Halper\’s blog at weeklystandard.com, and see/hear for yourself: In the words of the famous Irish scholar……….oy. But you can count on every one of them voting Hillary if they get the chance...

POLITIFICTION

Ken Berwitz I rarely write about the self-appointed “truth-telling” web site which calls itself politifact.com.  That is because, with few exceptions, it does little more than shill for the Democrats and the left – which, very often, are one and the same.   But this video, of Sean Hannity absolutely blowing it out of the water for claiming that Hannity had no basis...

BEFORE WE CONDEMN SENIOR DEPUTY FIELDS….

Ken Berwitz I assume you have seen the video of a White police officer – Officer to be exact – slamming a Black female student, still in her chair, down to the ground and then forcibly extricating her from the chair. This, of course, is a slam dunk:  a racist cop physically abusing a helpless young Black girl.  Call out the sharptons and jacksons; this man needs a tarring...

HOW HISTORY IS MADE

Ken Berwitz Here, in three parts, is a lesson in how history is made.  Not how it occurs, but how it is made. Part 1:  excerpted from a New York Daily News article, dated Monday, October 26, 2015, 8:53 AM EXCLUSIVE:  Rev. Al Sharpton, a longtime critic of NYPD, will speak at funeral of slain cop Randolph Holder The Rev. Al Sharpton, a longtime thorn in the side of the...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: SCOURGE OF BLACK CITIZENS

Ken Berwitz As a group, Black voters supported Barack Obama almost unanimously (well over 90% both times). Are a great many of them doing so specifically and exclusively because Mr. Obama is also Black?  Impossible to tell, given that the vast majority of Black citizens vote Democrat no matter who the candidate is.   But if you juxtapose Black voting for Mr. Obama with how Black...

Only weeks aftergiving up on his lackluster presidential campaign in the face of nationalindifference, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is back to making mischief in hishome state.
