IS PRESIDENT OBAMA KEEPING ISIS IN BUSINESS?

Ken Berwitz Is the President of the United States keeping a beyond-barbaric terrorist organization dedicated to ending Western Civilization and killing anyone who does not subscribe to its views in business?   That seems like an absurd premise, doesn\’t it?  But before you dismiss it out of hand, read these excerpts from Larry Kudlow\’s latest article at humanevents.com...

A REALLY GOOD READER COMMENT

Ken Berwitz Scott Johnson, of powerlineblog.com, has written a pun-laden, very amusing piece on “Schlong-gate” (yeah, I know that\’s trite and overused, but someone had to do it).  His equally amusing title:  “Schlonged – The Long And Short Of It”.   Within the comment section, talk turned to how Donald Trump is interacting with Hillary...

A PALESTINIAN ARAB LAMENT…AND AN ANSWER

Ken Berwitz A letter, written by Caroline Katba, Media Affairs Coordinator for the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) was published in today\’s New York Times.   Here it is….in rust, with my comments in blue: Re “West Bank Shopping Center, aSymbol of Coexistence, Is Shaken by Violence“ (Gush Etzion JunctionJournal, Dec. 15): PortrayingIsraeli settlements...

“SCHLONG”: A TUTORIAL

Ken Berwitz As I assume you know, Donald Trump used the word “schlong” when speaking of Hillary Clinton.  Specifically, he said that she was “schlonged ” by Barack Obama in the 2008 Democrat campaign. The uproar has been huge.   Trump has been accused of using a vulgarity and – this is a requisite for attacking Hillary Clinton – being offensive to...

ann tenaes: UGLY TO THE NTH DEGREE

Ken Berwitz Ted Cruz has put out a 1:30 commercial in which he sits with his wife and children and parodies Christmas stories to make political points. In it,one of his children reads a supposed story passage which refers to using a personal server – an obvious dig at Hillary Clinton. You can watch the commercial by clicking here. Personally, I consider Senator Cruz using his...

A MATH LESSON FOR HILLARY CLINTON

Ken Berwitz Campaigning in Keota, Iowa today, Hillary Clinton – so help me I\’m not making this up – said:  “Now, I wouldn\’t keep any school open that wasn\’t doing a better than average job.” Uh, Ms. Clinton…. Assuming that schools do not do exactly the same job of educating children, this would mean that, over time, you would close down...

DON LEMON\’S CENSORSHIP SHAME

Ken Berwitz Don Lemon is a show host on CNN:  one of their better ones….or so I have always thought, at least until now. Kurt Schlichter is a conservative writer/commentator who very much dislikes Hillary Clinton – something Mr. Lemon is fully aware of and, presumably why he had him on today\’s show. The problems started when the talk turned to Donald Trump\’s...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz I doubt that I will have to explain this latest example of real racism. With a major tip of my imaginary hat to Tom Blumer of newsbusters.org, this is an ad – a real ad – placed by the University of Louisville: I know what you\’re thinking.  This has to be some kind of a goof. The University of Louisville, could not possibly trumpet its dedication to...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote – and a shameful, stupid one it is – comes to us from Senator and Presidential aspirant Bernard Sanders. But first, a refresher course on why he said what he did. Do you remember Sandra Bland?  She was the woman who was stopped by Texas trooper for a minor traffic infraction, and goaded the trooper into a physical confrontation.  She wound...

STEVE HARVEY: MR. UNIVERSE IN THE STAND-UP GUY CATEGORY?

Ken Berwitz By now, just about everyone in the world knows Steve Harvey made a grotesque mistake by announcing Miss Colombia as the winner of the Miss Universe contest, and then, minutes later, admitting he made a mistake and it was Miss Philippines instead. Thereis no question that the mistake was Harvey\’s because, immediately afterward, hesaid “I\’d like to apologize...

NEW YORK CITY: BACK TO THE FUTURE

Ken Berwitz Welcome to Bill diBlasio\’s New York: -Murder is up 7% -Rape is up 5% -“Transit crime” (which I take to be crime on subways and buses) is up 10%. And now we have a graffiti problem again. Excerpted from an article at CBS News – New York: Graffiti was an infamous symbol of the decline and decay ofNew York City in the 1970s and \’80s, and some now...

A VOTER\’S LAMENT

Ken Berwitz Hillary Clinton lies about ISIS using videos of Trump to recruit new members… …then Trump calls her “disgusting” for using the bathroom during a debate break (What is he doing?  Holding it in until after the election?) and comments that she was “schlonged” by Barack Obama in 2008.  These are the two front-runners?  Where are...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from Brian Fallon, a spokesperon for Hillary Clinton.   Mr. Fallon was asked if Ms. Clinton would apologize to Donald Trump for stating as a fact, during Saturday night\’s debate, that ISIS has created videos of his comments about Muslims and using them as a recruiting tool.   Mr. Fallon\’s answer: “Hell no.
