IRAN: WE CAME, WE GOT, WE WENT BYE-BYE?

In July of last year – July 28th, to be exact – I blogged that paragraph 36 of the nuclear “deal” enabled Iran to void the deal in as little as 35 days (I originally said 30, it’s 35) by simply accusing the USA or one of the other signatories of violating some part of it.  No need for the accusation to necessarily be valid either. Please use the link I’ve...

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE “LOSING WISCONSIN WOULD BE A DISASTER FOR BERNIE SANDERS” COMMENT?

I’ll make this short and to the point. Yesterday there were reports that someone from the Bernie Sanders campaign – someone significant to be quoted by name – had said that if he lost Wisconsin it would be “a disaster”. I was going to blog about this today.  Except I cannot find the quote.  I googled “Bernie Sanders losing Wisconsin a disaster” –...

HILLARY CLINTON’S DEBATE OFFER

First Hillary Clinton wouldn’t do any more debates with Bernie Sanders. Then, through her people, she said, well, maybe, she’d do another one, provided he “changed his tone” (i.e. if you debate the way I want you to, I’ll show up). Then there was news that the Clinton and Sanders camps were hashing out the details of another debate (she was embarrassed into it?). And...

WHO IS PLANNED PARENTHOOD UPSET AT?

Planned Parenthood is upset.  Enough so that it has gone public about it. But at who? Well, first let’s establish upset part, with this excerpt from Bradford Richardson’s article in yesterday’s Washington Times: Diana Arellano, manager of community engagement for Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, said Sunday that (NAME) comments undermined the cause for abortion rights. The...

HOW DOES MEXICO HANDLE THE “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT” ISSUE?

Let me answer the question posed by that title, by excerpting from Nina Lakhani’s article for London’s Daily Guardian: Amy and Esther Juárez were edgy with excitement as they boarded the bus full of seasonal workers heading for a farm at the other end of Mexico from their home in the poverty-stricken southern state of Chiapas. Although their brother Alberto,18, had made the same...

I CAN BALANCE THAT BUDGET IN….

Many years ago – on radio and then on TV – there was a show called “Name That Tune”.  In it, contestants had to come up with a song title after hearing only the first few notes.  The contestant who got the first chance, was the winner of a bidding contest, which went something like this: Opponent A:  “I can name that song in…uh….8 notes” Opponent...

SEVEN FACTS OF LIFE FOR MILLENNIALS

I was just on facebook, and found this posted by one of my friends – who happens to be unadulteratedly hard-left.  I wonder if she realizes that its source, infowars.com, is unadulteratedly hard-right. Anyway, I consider it worth posting here, at least in abbreviated form (click here for the full 9 yards). Take a look and come to your own conclusions: Millennials. They may not yet be the...

THREE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON

Does this mean I have to apologize for calling Hillary Clinton accomplishmentless? With a tip of my imaginary hat (I don’t wear them) to Paul Mirengoff at powerlineblog.com, I will now list out three accomplishments of Hillary Clinton’s, during the 8 years she was a United States Senator: -She voted in favor of invading Iraq (though when it became politically opportune to oppose it...

DONALD TRUMP’S ECONOMIC “EXPERTISE”

For something like the last half year I have been reading doomsday forecasts for our economy – that it is either heading into recession or, in one or two cases, that the recession has already started…the numbers just haven’t caught up to reality yet. So guess what Donald Trump told Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa when they interviewed him:  that we are...

THE FOREIGN POLICY STUPIDITY OF BARACK OBAMA

I doubt that you need me to explain the title of this blog.  Just read the following excerpts from Julian Hattem’s article for thehill.com and, I am reasonably confident, you’ll come to the same conclusion: President Obama on Friday criticized Iranian leaders for undermining the “spirit” of last year’s historic nuclear agreement, even as they stick to the “letter” of the...

IN CASE YOU THINK IT IS ONLY REPUBLICANS…(CONT.)

Earlier today I wrote a blog titled “In Case You Think It’s Only Republicans”.  It talked about how Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are at each other’s throats over how much money Ms. Clinton has taken from fossil fuel producers (including their lobbyists). I figured that if the Clinton/Sanders battle had descended this far down, it would probably stay as low or maybe...

EXPLAINING HILLARY CLINTON’S ANGER TO THE AP

Here is the beginning of Lisa Lerer and Ken Thomas’s just-published article about Hillary Clinton’s recent change of demeanor regarding Bernie Sanders: Hillary Clinton snapped at a Greenpeace protester. She linked Bernie Sanders and tea party Republicans. And she bristled with anger when nearly two dozen Sanders supporters marched out of an event near her home outside New York City...

WHEN DOES THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER PUT UP OR SHUT UP ABOUT TED CRUZ?

It has been a week since the National Enquirer “reported” – without benefit of any physical evidence or so much as one sourced quote – that Ted Cruz had extramarital affairs with five different women. Cruz called the Enquirer’s charges a smear and a pack of lies, among other things. Since then: -Not one piece of tangible evidence has been brought forward to lend...

BELGIUM’S PROPOSED IMMIGRANT PLEDGE

Who says Belgium isn’t doing something about the influx of people who do not share the country’s culture and mores? According to John Hinderaker’s piece at powerlineblog.com, Belgium’s Parliament is considering the requirement that all new immigrants agree to the statement below: Uh….yeah, that’ll do it all right.  People whose culture, their entire lives...

HUMA-LIATED?

Huma Abedin is really worried about the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Why?  Because Ms. Abedin, who has been one of Hillary Clinton’s closest, most trusted confidantes for a good many years knows that, if Hillary Clinton’s emails are made public, the emails she exchanged with Ms. Abedin will be among them.  And that could humiliate – or is that huma-liate – her. In...
