WHY ARE DEMOCRATS NOT VOTING IN PRIMARIES?

This is an easy blog to write…because it is based on a chart someone else compiled. Here, from Matt Boyle and Andy Badolato’s article at breitbart.com (you didn’t expect mainstream media to report this, did you?) is a compilation of the votes in Democrat primaries so far.  See if you notice a trend: That, folks, is one helluva lot fewer votes than last time. Republican primary...

UNIVISI(CLINT)ON

I doubt I am surprising many people to note that Univision, the Spanish-language network many Latinos rely on for news, is about as pro-Hillary Clinton as it gets. But that may have been taken to a new level on Sundays “Al Punto” show, in which Ms. Clinton was given he floor interviewed by Univision “reporter” (as opposed to Clinton Cheerleader/Trump hater) Leon...

WHAT FRANCE LOST WHEN IT LOST ISRAEL

This fascinating story comes to us from Fox News, via the following excerpts from an article at timesofisrael.com.  The bold print is mine: An alleged boycott of Israeli technology may have prevented an airport security deal offered to France after the deadly Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attacks in January, 2015. Use of the Israeli terrorist-tracking technology could possibly have thwarted the...

MELISSA CLICK: A VICTIM OF RACISM?

Remember Melissa Click? She was the Assistant Professor (other accounts give her different titles) at the University of Missouri during the campus uprising last year who, full of outrage and an imagined sense of both power and entitlement, demanded that a student who tried to photograph one of the protests leave.  At the time she called for “some muscle” – presumably meaning...

WHAT WE LOSE IF WE LOSE ISRAEL (CONT.)

This latest installment of the “What We Lose If We Lose Israel” series comes to us via the following excerpts from Deborah Danan’s article at breitbart.com: The U.S. is cosponsoring an Israeli-invented tunnel detection system that could prevent drug smugglers and migrants from cross-border passage with Mexico, ISRAEL21c reported. The technology, which is being heralded as the...

THE CRUZ/KASICH COALITION

This election year gets more and more interesting…more and more bizarre. Now, two candidates who, based on the last several months, have no particular affinity for each other are joining forces in a coordinated effort to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the Republican presidential nominee. From Matt Flegenheimer and Jonathan Martin’s article in this morning’s New York...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from Hans von Spakovsky and Roger Clegg’s article at nationalreview.com.  They express what, it seems to me, is a very well reasoned explanation of what is wrong with Virginia Governor McAuliffe’s executive action giving convicted felons the vote: What McAuliffe entirely dismisses is the principle that if you won’t follow the law yourself, you...

HOW TO TURN VIRGINIA BLUE

Congratulations on Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, for turning Virginia from purple (i.e. could go either way) to blue (count it in the Democrat column). Excerpted from Graham Moomaw’s article for the Richmond Times-Dispatch: Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at...

HILLARY CLINTON’S LATEST COUGHING FIT

What is physically wrong with Hillary Clinton? Is it a sickness of some kind that is causing her coughing fits?  Is it because of the medication she is taking — and if it is the medication, what is the medication for? Here she is, today, at a rally in Bridgeport, Connecticut: Hillary Clinton aspires to be the President of the United States.  Do we not have a right to know what her...

THE LEFT WING LAFF OF THE DAY

This exchange actually took place… …between Comedy Central’s left wing Larry Wilmore and long time left wing activist Susan Sarandon: Sarandon: But maybe, you know, they don’t want a third party but the DNC has made it very clear that they don’t let any progressive in. You know so maybe it’s time to have a third party.  Wilmore: But you know, but the Democratic Party is...

HILLARY AND THE 3 CENT AN OUNCE SODA TAX

“We obviously have to do a whole lot more to avoid what they call the ‘school to prison pipeline’ and replace it with a ‘cradle to college pipeline’ and that really starts early, and it starts early with working with families, working with kids, building up community resources. I’m very supportive of the mayor’s proposal to tax soda to get universal preschool for kids. I mean I...

BERNIE’S POOR SHOWING: BECAUSE OF THE POOR?

Does the the title of this blog confuse you? Not to worry:  it is explained in the following excerpt from an article at the website for ABC’s Boston affiliate, WVB: Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a simple explanation for why he’s trailing Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House: Poor people don’t vote. In an interview for NBC’s “Meet...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Having just spent two days with family at Passover seders, I thought I would post this as Quote Of The Day: “Now they say we should go back to the ’67 borders.  But that’s where we were, so why was there a war?  And we had ’47 borders.  We didn’t like them very much but we said yes to them.  But there was still a war.  And after the ’48 war they said we should go back to the...

UNFREE SPEECH

  Is the April Fool’s day issue of a college newspaper just some edgy silly stuff?  Is it a chance to take advantage of the latitude we give to humor, and grievously insult people racially and ethnically?  Both? Let’s start with the newspaper itself. Here are excerpts from Lisa Kaczke’s article in the Duluth (Minnesota) News Tribune.  Please read it – and then...
