THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from Hillary Clinton\’s long-time lover (in a political sense), NBC\’s Andrea Mitchell.

TRUMP UNIVERSITY: REALITY VS. TRUMP

Ken Berwitz During last night\’s debate a number of donald trump\’s now defunct ventures were brought up.  One of them was Trump University. When the fact that Trump University received a D- rating from the Better Business Bureau was mentioned by Marco Rubio, trump yelled that it had been “Elevated to an A”.  In fact, the final BBB rating Trump University...

HILLARY: DEAD BROKE AGAIN?

Ken Berwitz Remember how Hillary Clinton and Hubby Bubba were “dead broke” when they left the White House (I wish for every one of us to be as “dead broke” for the rest of our lives)? Well, it must have happened again.  Because she is paying herself with campaign money…to the tune of over a quarter million dollars in less than a year. From Alex...

THE “JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! SCAM

Ken Berwitz Another month with over 200,000 new jobs.  Unemployment is down to 4.9%.  It\’s BOOM time, right? Uh…..wrong. Take a good look at the “job growth” from this chart, and see if you\’re impressed: From Tyler Durden\’s analysis at zerohedge.com: The breakdown: of the 242K jobs created in February, 189K were of the minimum-wage...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

He has done so to people that...

LAST NIGHT\’S DEBATE

Ken Berwitz I almost always shower in the morning.  But after watching last night\’s Republican debate, I felt the need to shower right then. donald trump is a crude, disgusting, lying, duplicitous disgrace of the first order.  It is pathetic that there are people who would vote for him, no matter how much they may dislike “the establishment” (whatever that means...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Mr. Christie, it seems, has taken extreme exception to the many people (me among them) who noticed his less than joyous demeanor while standing behind donald trump during his Super Tuesday “victory speech”.  He called a news conference today, and here is what he had to say: “All these...

Ken Berwitz Here, via an excerpt from Chuck Ross\’s article at dailycaller.com is the Clinton campaign\’s reaction to Bryan Pagliano receiving immunity in return for his testimony about Ms. Clinton\’s  email server:  Clinton\’s campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, told The Post that the campaign was “pleased” that Pagliano had decided to talk to...

AN IDEA FOR THE POLITICAL POLLSTERS

Ken Berwitz As someone who has spent most of his life in marketing research, I occasionally come up with an idea or two about things that might be asked of the public. Here\’s one of them. Since donald trump seems to be winning primaries by getting less than half the vote, but benefiting by his Republican opponents splitting the rest… … how about putting the Democrats to the...

OF CLINTON, PAGLIANO, LAW & ORDER

Ken Berwitz Immunity in return for testimony. Sounds like an episode of Law & Order, doesn\’t it?  Well that is what the Department of Justice has given Bryan Pagliano, so that he will testify about Hillary Clinton\’s email server – the personal server he set up for her when she was Secretary of State. Excerpted from Adam Goldman\’s article in The Washington...

THE SYRIAN “TRUCE”

Ken Berwitz Here\’s a big surprise…. Excerpted from Michael Dalder\’s article at Reuters: Israel said on Tuesday that Syrian government forces have used chemical weapons against civilians since the start of a ceasefire aimed at preparing the way for an end to the five-year civil war. The truce, sponsored by Russia and the United States, began on Saturday and has been...

SHOULD CHRIS CHRISTIE STEP DOWN AS GOVERNOR?

Ken Berwitz Let me start by pointing out that the question in my title is not one I would have asked today.  But it is one that is being asked – seriously – in the six Gannett Newspapers published in New Jersey. This is from today\’s editorial in the largest of them; the Asbury Park Press (APP): What an embarrassment. What an utter disgrace. We\’re fed up...

BEN CARSON – OUT?

Ken Berwitz Ben Carson has announced that there is no path for him to win the Republican presidential nomination and he will not attend tomorrow\’s debate….but not that he has ended his campaign, only that he is going to make a speech on Friday, presumably about his plans. I\’ll take that as an apparent dropping out.   Now we\’re down to four.

SHEP SMITH: ACTING LIKE AN A HOLE

Ken Berwitz Anyone who thinks Fox News Channel is strictly right-of-center should watch the video of Shep Smith interviewing a Republican strategist (I think it was Doug Heye) just now.   Smith would not let his guest finish a sentence, without breaking in and attacking both his answers and the Republican Party. That is not what good interviewing is.  It barely even qualifies as bad...
