WHY HAVE HALF THE OBAMACARE CO-OPS FAILED?

Ken Berwitz If President Obama were a Republican Governor and he could be accused of closing a couple of bridge lanes, you\’d know about it. But as President, the fact that he force-fed a health care system on us which involves about one-sixths of our entire economy, and it is failing big-time?  Strictly back-page news. Excerpted from Richard Pollock\’s article at...

A LIST WORTH THINKING ABOUT

Ken Berwitz From our pal Special Ed Robin: Now that you\’ve seen that list, would you like to see the list of Arab countries – wealthy or otherwise – which allow Palestinian Arabs to emigrate to and become citizens? Ok.  Just look up.   With the exception of Jordan (which, itself, is a Palestinian Arab state), there is not one on the face of the earth. What...

CLIMATE CHANGE: THE REAL 97%

Ken Berwitz For years, we have been treated to the steady ratatat of  “journalists” assuring us that 97% of the scientific community believes in “anthropogenic climate change” (that\’s a big word meaning “caused by humans”….and, yes, the term used to be “athropogenic global warming”, until proponents…including many recipients...

FOR ANYONE WHO STILL DOUBTS THERE IS MEDIA BIAS…..

Ken Berwitz Here are the first two paragraphs of J. K. Trotter\’s article for the (usually leftward, Democrat-friendly) gawker.com, which should disabuse even people in full denial mode…. Few journalists are more thoroughly connected toWashington\’s power elite than Politico\’s ChiefWhite House correspondent Mike Allen. But as newlyreleased emails between the...

WHO IS THE RACIST?

I JUST TALKED TO MY……

Ken Berwitz President Obama just started talking.  His opening?  “I just talked to MY Nationa Security Advisor, MY Attorney General, MY……….. This is one of the many reasons I have a problem with Barack Obama.  They are not HIS, they are OURS. He says it all the time, and it infuriates me every time he says...

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraphs – which, in actuality, comprise his entire blog – come to us from powerlineblog.com\’s Scott Johnson. Here is what Mr. Johnson has to say about President Obama\’s joint press conference, yesterday, with French President Francois Hollande: As President Obamaenters the stretch closing out his second term, he is dedicating himself...

AS CHICAGO SEETHES….

Ken Berwitz Chicago is seething. The reason?  Release of a video tape from last year\’s shooting/killing of 17 year old Laquan McDonald, by police officer Jason Van Dyke. While we still do not know all the facts regarding this case, the video, by itself, seems to make it clear that this was an unjustified police shooting.  Even if Officer Van Dyke\’s first shots do turn...

THE UNFAIRNESS OF BEING BLACK

Ken Berwitz My wife and I were just in a party goods store, to pick up items for the upcoming holidays.   It was toward the end of the store\’s hours.  There were just a couple of customers, and the only employees I saw were three females – two middle aged women and one young woman, probably still in high school. A Black man walked into the store. Physically, he looked...

TOFURKEY

Ken Berwitz Apropos of nothing political… ….with Thanksgiving approaching, let me say this year what I say every year.  Speaking as someone who enjoys food as much as anyone – more than most, actually – I would rather go hungry than eat tofurkey.  Even the sound of it repulses me. Ok, back to politics – which, sometimes, makes even tofurkey sound good by...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from something called the Princeton Open Campus Coalition – which, I am certain, is a newly formed organization. It has sent a letter in which it requests a meeting with Princeton\’s President, Christopher Eisgruber.  But instead of enumerating a list of demands, one of which is that Mr. Eisgruber resign because he is not sensitive...

THE INSANITY OF TODAY\’S COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

Ken Berwitz Suppose I said the following to you: “I don\’t believe in race.  There is only one human race.  America is a melting pot and it is the land of opportunity”. Would you feel I had a positive outlook, maybe even call me a bit of a dreamer?  Would you see me as someone who has good things to say about others, and about where we live? Well, if so, you...

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW YORK TIMES

Ken Berwitz I congratulate the New York Times for doing something I would have thought just about impossible. The Times managed to publish an entire editorial about Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post journalist just sentenced to jail in Iran, without once mentioning President Barack Obama\’s refusal to include his release, and the release of two – possibly three –...
