THE DECRIMINALIZATION DELUSION: A MUST-READ

Ken Berwitz If you read one article today, read Heather McDonald\’s “The Decriminalization Delusion”. Ms. McdDonald, writing for City Journal, has blown the lies told by President Obama and his cohorts about jails being overflowing with drug possession offenders out of the water…and into the sky and through the ionosphere.   Want a taste?  I thought...

CARSON THE NEW “LEADER”

Ken Berwitz The latest CBS News/New York Times poll of Republican candidates has Ben Carson ahead of Donald Trump by 26% – 22%, with everyone else way behind. Several new polls also show Carson ahead of Trump in Iowa, the first state with a primary – the latest by double digits (32% – 18%). When Republicans debate on CNBC tomorrow, therefore, the latest data Trump will be...

HOBBY LOBBY AND CHANUKAH

Ken Berwitz A quick note to tell readers that I just checked Hobby Lobby\’s web site, and it is selling an assortment of Chanukah (some spell it Hannukah) goods on-line.   I don\’t know if they are available in some or all of its stores as well. I post this in the interest of fairness.  Make of it what you will.

O\’MALLEY\’S OPENING

Ken Berwitz The next Republican debate will be tomorrow night.  It\’s “main event” will include all candidates averaging 2.5% or more in national polls over the past month.  I hope it will be informative, and maybe entertaining as well.  I expect that its result will be that, after the subsequent polling is done, a few more of the no-chance Republican candidates...

DESTROYING IRAQ AND SYRIA TO SAVE THEM

Ken Berwitz “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”:  A statement supposedly made during the Vietnam war by a U.S. military officer, to explain the shelling of Ben Tre City. “We had to lose Iraq and Syria in order to save them”:  A statement not made by anyone, but effectively what President Barack Obama\’s policy has been for...

THE LATEST OFFENSIVE TERMINOLOGY

Ken Berwitz Did you know that the term “hard worker” is racially offensive, because it doesn\’t respect Black people who worked as field slaves picking cotton? No, I have not fallen on my head, or ODed on LSD, or had a quart of vodka in less than 15 minutes.  This is not my idea.  This is the “idea” (strange use of that word) posited by Melissa...

HIILLARY CLINTON: DOMA FOR DUMMIES

Ken Berwitz I\’ll make this short and sweet. Here is the first, and last,  paragraph of Chuck Ross\’s\’s blog, at dailycaller.com, which takes us through Hillary Clinton (and Hubby Bubba\’s) gyrations on the issue of gay marriage…..and shows that Benghazi is far from the only thing Hillary Clinton is happy to lie about, secure in the knowledge that most...

THE SYRIA “DEAL”: TWO YEARS LATER

Ken Berwitz On September 27th, 2013, I wrote a blog titled “The Syria \’Deal\'”.  In it, I analyzed the “deal” Secretary Of State John Kerry had cut with Russia\’s Sergey Lavrove, on what actions should be taken in Syria. I just re-read that blog, and realized that now, over two years later, it is just as relevant as it was then.  So I am reposting...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from Tom Fitton, who heads the invaluable Judicial Watch – an organization dedicated to not letting lying politicians get away with their political lies. Fitton and his group have, as the result of herculean efforts and persistency, uncovered documents showing that during the Benghazi attack – not after, but during – the Obama...

A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT OFFICER RANDOLPH HOLDER AND #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Ken Berwitz It has been six days since New York City Police Officer Randolph Holder was gunned down, apparently by another Black man. Have you heard one word of sorrow, or condolences, from anyone associated with #blacklivesmatter?   Is Randolph Holder any less Black than Michael Brown, whose justified – that\’s right, justified – shooting by Police Officer Darren Wilson...

THE CONSEQUENCES OF TRUTH (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz “Truth” is a movie which tells us that Dan Rather and Mary Mapes had it right in 2004, when they claimed to have found documents proving then-President Bush got preferential treatment while he was in the military.   That is roughly equivalent to a movie titled “Success”, telling us about the Chicago Cubs\’ quest to win a world series over the past...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraphs award goes to Kyle Smith, writing for the New York Post. This, in part, is what he has to say about what the Benghazi hearing, told us about Hillary Clinton: The media has beenwaiting to be shown a smoking gun in the Benghazi hearings and, not having seenany, declares the sessions a victory for Clinton. But Benghazi isn\’t about ascandal per...

IF BUSH DROPS OUT

Ken Berwitz A very short blog for you. If Jeb Bush drops out of the presidential race – and it is starting to look more and more like that is a possibility – who gains? In my opinion, the two hopefuls who might gain the most are Marco Rubio, who already is among the “leaders” (if anyone can be called a leader at this stage of the game) and John Kasich, whose campaign...

KHAMENEI\’S ACCEPTANCE/REJECTION OF THE NUCLEAR “DEAL”

Ken Berwitz Remember that nuclear “deal\’ President Obama and Secretary Of State Kerry agreed to (acquiesced to is more like it)?  The one which they caved in on to just about every demand of khamenei and his fellow murderous, terror-supporting religious fanatics? Well, evidently that was not nearly enough acquiescence.  khamenei has issued a set of nine guidelines without...
