STATE SANCTIONED DISCRIMINATION

Not much to add to the following excerpt from Mark Berman’s article for the Washington Post.  The part in bold print – which should astound anyone with a brain or a heart – is mine: Mississippi’s governor on Tuesday signed into law a bill that allows businesses to refuse services to gay couples based on religious objections, ignoring opposition from businesses who had worried...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote – and an astonishingly dumb one it is – comes to us from one of the worst presidential candidates in modern times.  Hillary Clinton. Ms. Clinton was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today.  And, speaking of the fact that, in primary after primary, younger voters are choosing Bernie Sanders over her by huge margins, this is what she had to say: “Look, I think it’s...

ABORTION AND MEDIA BIAS

With a major tip of my imaginary hat to Katie Yoder of newsbusters.org, allow me to point out that: -On March 30, Donald Trump said that women who have abortions should be punished – which enraged pro-choice, and even some pro-life advocates. In the subsequent 24 hours, ABC, NBC and CBS devoted over 20 full minutes to this comment, and have cited it since. -On Sunday, Hillary Clinton said...

THE CONSEQUENCES OF OPPOSING PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Do you remember David Daleiden? He is the guy behind the Center for Medical Progresss (CMP), the one who made those videos which would have made Planned Parenthood look like a bunch of liars who happily (that adverb is literal, not figurative) traded in the intact body parts of aborted babies for $$$. I say “would have”, because the power of Planned Parenthood, coupled with its...

DONALD TRUMP’S “GRACIOUS” CONCESSION SPEECH

Here, in its entirety, is the statement issued by Donald Trump’s campaign after losing the Wisconsin primary to Ted Cruz: Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. Lyin’ Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him. Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s...

THE DEATH OF JOHN MARSHALL

Yesterday’s Washington Free Beacon had an article by Morgan Chalfont, about the death of former Army Sergeant John Marshall, who died of cancer on Tuesday, March 29th (not Thursday as the article erroneously states). Here is a key excerpt: Marshall died at his home in Surprise, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. He was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma over a year ago. Marshall alleged in an...

WISCONSIN RESULTS

Here, for whatever it is worth, is my assessment of yesterday’s Wisconsin primary results. Republicans In the Republican primary, Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump by plenty:  48.3% to 35.1%. However, Cruz’s understandable euphoria over this win, which was more than evident in his victory speech, may well be short-lived, since the next half dozen or so states are likely to favor Trump. But...

WHO SAID IT?

First the quote: “Of course you can be a feminist and be pro-life” Now:  Who said it? Ted Cruz?  Rush Limbaugh?  Someone from the Family Research Council? Uh….actually no. That quote, according to cbsnews.com,  comes from Hillary Clinton, who said it this morning, while a guest on The View – which was nice enough to give her a warm, fuzzy opportunity to show herself...

THE a) FUNNIEST or b) MOST INTENTIONALLY DISINGENUOUS) QUOTE OF THE DAY

Please read the following quote, which comes to us from Hillary Clinton,  while she was speaking about Donald Trump during her love-fest with the Hillary-loving women of “The View”.  Then pick which blog title fits best: “He does have a lot of people who are voting in the Republican primary, but to put it in a broader perspective, I have more votes than he does,” Clinton...

HILLARY CLINTON’S GUN LIE

Isn’t Hillary Clinton the one calling Bernie Sanders and his people a bunch of liars? Then how come, right at the end of campaigning in Wisconsin (whose primary voters are going to the polls as I type this), and shortly prior to the New York primary – which would be devastating for Clinton to lose – Ms. Clinton and her people are lying about Bernie Sanders’ adopted home...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Huma Abedin, who (with the possible exception of Hubby Bubba), for years, has probably been Hillary Clinton’s single closest adviser/confidante. Here it is:  see what you make of it: “You know these things that happen in your life that just stick? She walked by and she shook my hand and our eyes connected and I just remember having this moment where...

DONALD TRUMP ON ABORTION

Now that Donald Trump has given us multiple stands on abortion, I thought you might be interested in his latest version. From John Dickerson’s interview of Trump during Sunday’s “Face The Nation” show: Trump:  “The law’s are set, and I think we have to leave it that way” Dickerson:  “Do you think it’s murder, abortion”?  Trump:...

WISCONSIN

I almost never make predictions, and I’m not making one now. But here is what I expect is going to happen. I expect that, in the Republican primary, Ted Cruz will win over Donald Trump, but I don’t have a strong feeling about how much he will win by.  I would be surprised, but not shocked, if Trump managed to eke out a win, but only because he has surprised me so many times in the...

SLEEPING DOGS….

Apropos of nothing political… Since the rest of the day’s blogs will be about politics – aka: the good, the bad and the ugly, minus the good – I thought I’d start out with this very funny (to me) explanation of at least one dog’s interest level for various things, which I got from our pal Special Ed Robin: OK, back to politics, where, we’ve all...
