AMNESTY: A LAWBREAKER HELPING LAWBREAKERS

Ken Berwitz Did we elect a President to uphold the law, or did we elect a dictator to make up the law as he goes along? How many times does Barack Obama have to show us that he thinks it is option #2, before we force him back to option #1? Maybe this will be the time.   Excerpted from Ian N. Smith\’s article at thehill.com: A newly leaked internal DHS memorandum produced for an...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraphs come to us from the redoubtable scholar, philosopher, author, commentator – and probably a dozen other things I\’m not even mentioning – Thomas Sowell. Mr. Sowell\’s latest column starts by talking about incident in a South Carolina high school where the School Resource Officer, Ben Fields, was called by a teacher to remove a...

HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS AND SHARIA LAW

Ken Berwitz The next time you run into a Hillary Clinton voter who tells you how dumb Republicans are, show him/her this video of Hillary supporters happily nodding agreement with the idea of implementing sharia law, because the guy with the microphone tells them Ms. Clinton is on board with it. That\’s right.  The video is one woman after another being told that Hillary Clinton...

THE MEDIA BIAS THAT SUPPOSEDLY IS NOT THERE….

Ken Berwitz With a tip of my imaginary hat to Mark Finkelstein at newsbusters.org, here is a short, but genuinely telling, segment of today\’s Morning Joe show: JOE SCARBOROUGH: All Iam saying to you, and you can\’t doit and nobody here can do it: name the single Republican that has hosted aSunday show, that has been an anchor of a news network for the big threenetworks over...

KANSAS CITY AND PERSISTENCE

Ken Berwitz Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent:  Calvin Coolidge For a quiet man (his nickname was “Silent Cal”)...

THE WAR ON WOMEN – CARLY FIORINA\’S COUNTERATTACK

Ken Berwitz Is there a war on women?   Well, if you\’re a woman who departs from the current leftward orthodoxy, the answer is an emphatic yes. I could go on and blog about how women with views to the right of the Nancy Pelosi/Debbie Wasserman Schultz/”The View” crowd are absolutely reviled – with virtually nothing to worry about from the same mainstream media...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Since we\’re on the subject of the movie “Truth”, our quote of the day will be from someone who has a more than passing acquaintance with the actual events it wasn\’t based on (I can\’t say “was” based on, because “Truth” is so ridiculously untruthful). From former President of CBS news, Andrew Heyward, we have this movie...

TRUTH\’S CONSEQUENCES

Ken Berwitz On Monday, I noted that “Truth”, the Robert Redford/Kate Blanchett vehicle which tries to convince us that Dan rather and Mary Mapes were victims, rather than rogue journalists who put out fraudulent material in an effort to take down a sitting President, had gone from a mediocre first week to an even less promising second week.   I ended by...

PROVING CRUZ RIGHT

Ken Berwitz As anyone who reads this blog certainly knows, I am no fan of Ted Cruz – primarily because of his hard-right stands on social issues. But when he\’s right, he\’s right. And, in this case, not only is he right, but his fund-raising letter, based on the disgraceful performance of CNBC\’s debate moderators last week, has smoked out at least one media genius who...
