LABOUR AND ANTI-SEMITISM

What is going on in the UK’s Labour Party? If you’re a Jew, the answer is “Nothing good”. From Ari Yashar’s article at israelnationalnews.com: An horrific children’s play in which a seven-year-old Palestinian girl “stabbed Jews” took place at a recent event partly funded by Interpal, a UK charity supported by Labour party head Jeremy Corbyn and...

TRUMP AND THE (INADVERTENT) APPRENTICES

Donald Trump was on the Today Show this morning. And, as with the other times he has been on Today, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, instead of asking questions, fired attacks and challenges at Trump – several times with smiles on their faces, as if to communicate they were making sport of him. The funny (ironic, not ha-ha) part?  Trump, instead, made sport of them.  He answered...

HOW DO YOU SPIN LOUSY GDP GROWTH?

The numbers have just been released.  And Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which was expected to grow an anemic 0.7%…..actually grew by an even more anemic 0.5%. How do you make that look good? Well, here is the first paragraph of Reuters’ article on the subject: U.S. economic growth braked sharply to its slowest pace in two years as consumer spending softened and a strong dollar...

BALTIMORE’S NEW MAYOR

On Tuesday, Baltimore, Maryland elected its new Mayor. No, there wasn’t a special election, it was only a primary.  But in Baltimore, as in many cities around the country, the Democrat primary winner is the election winner.  Republicans in Baltimore are about as plentiful as Rabbis in Ramallah. So who was the big winner?  Who has been picked to lead Baltimore out of its ugly current...

SHELDON SILVER

And on the Democrat side… sheldon silver, for many years the second most powerful politician in New York State (superceded only by the Governor), has apologized for being a scoundrel of the first order. How sweet.  And what a coincidence that he does so on the same day that, according to the New York Times article, federal prosecutors file papers suggesting he be imprisoned for over 14...

DENNIS HASTERT

The best thing I can say about dennis hastert is that his serial molestations of young boys – the ones we know about – took place a long time ago. That neither excuses what he did nor assumes his sick activities did not continue afterwards, maybe even to when he was the Republican Speaker Of The House. hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison today.  He earned it, and a lot more.

GREAT NEWS FOR NEW YORK CITY

What is the great news for New York City? Excerpted from an article running at CBS News – New York: More than a hundred suspects have been charged in the Bronx in what is believed to be the largest gang takedown in New York City history, authorities said Wednesday. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and other law enforcement officials announced the...

CRUZ – FIORINA

As I type this, Ted Cruz is announcing that Carly Fiorina will be his running mate. My question:  given that Cruz is mathematically eliminated from winning on the first ballot, and disliked enough so that it is a near certainty he can’t achieve a majority if there is a convention battle… ….what country is this ticket running in?

REAL RACISM

I doubt this latest installment of Real Racism needs any explaining from me. From Blake Neff’s article at dailycaller.com: A dinner event at Pomona College intended to be open to all non-white women was canceled after it was denounced by black women at the school for not being black-only. A dinner event for Black women only.  No Whites or Asians need apply? Canceled because there would...

THE “DOH” OF THE DAY

This may be the start of a new series.  “The Doh Of The Day” occurs when someone – in this first installment, a hack politician – makes a comment, as if he is letting us in on something, that is so obvious we didn’t need to hear it at all. Today’s “winner” is Illinois Senator Dick Durbin.  Here is Ms. Durbin’s brilliant insight regarding...

CAN AN INDICTMENT SHUT DOWN HILLARY CLINTON? ASK CHAKA FATTAH

Is it possible for an indictment to close down Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign? Well, let’s take a look at Chaka Fattah’s primary race for a little guidance on the matter. One of the major surprises of last night’s primaries – maybe the single biggest surprise of them all – is that 11 term congressperson Chaka Fattah, an extremely powerful Democrat and...

THE PRIMARY RESULTS

Here is a quick summary of yesterday’s primary results: Democrats Hillary Clinton wins four of five – Three by large margins (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware) and one in a squeaker (Connecticut). Barring physical issues or a meaningful indictment (which the Obama/Lynch justice department is highly unlikely to allow to happen), she’s a shoo-in. Bernie Sanders, with one win, in...

TRUMP SWEEPS, HILLARY WINS AT LEAST 3 OF 5

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is running roughshod over both Cruz and Kasich in all five primary states. And, in a very interesting development, John Kasich is running second in all five, with Ted Cruz bringing up the rear. On the Democrat side, Hillary Clinton has won Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.  Bernie Sanders has won Rhode Island and is very slightly ahead in...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Better prepare yourself for this one.  Because it is a powerful statement that is rarely heard, and therefore, I am sure, is very new and innovative to you. During a “town hall” meeting – on MSNBC and hosted by Rachel Maddow, which should tell you what a stringent test this was for Ms. Clinton...

BARACK OBAMA’S FOREIGN POLICY BFF

I just read Paul Mirengoff’s incredulous blog, in which he laughs – no doubt through gritted teeth – about an imbecilic piece by the Washington Post’s Greg Jaffe, which extols Barack Obama on the grounds that he is close to German Chancellor Angela Merkel because they are so much like each other – in a highly positive way, of course. First, let me show you just one...
