ARE MEDIA HIDING THE CARNAGE IN CHICAGO?

Are network news media working hard – very, very hard – to prevent the public from understanding how much carnage is taking place in Chicago? Tell you what:  please read  these excerpts from Katie Yoder’s article at newsbusters.org, then make up your mind: Over the long weekend, 69 citizens were shot across Chicago. At the same time, a gorilla named Harambe was shot after a...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from an unusual source:  Nicholas Kristof – op-ed columnist for the New York Times and hard-left ideologue.  It seems that, several weeks ago, he wrote a column suggesting that “liberals” (his terminology; hard left would be mine) aggressively prevent conservative points of view from being heard on college and university campuses. His latest...

CHICAGO’S NEW POLICE SUPERINTENDENT IMPARTS HIS WISDOM

“Too many guns and too many people willing to use them.” That is Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson’s explanation of why the Memorial Day weekend left 5 dead and 55 wounded – a continuation of the ongoing bloodbath that Chicago’s streets have become. Now why didn’t I think of that? If Superintendent Johnson – on the job one whole month – wants to...

PHILADELPHIA AS A SANCTUARY CITY

Why does Philadelphia receive federal funding? Read these excerpts from Jazz Shaw’s article at hotair.com and see if you wind up asking the same question: Philadelphia is the home of the Liberty Bell, and the symbolism of that icon now apparently includes the liberty to break the law with impunity, as well as the support of the local clergy and City Hall. When incoming Philadelphia Mayor...

HEY, WHAT’S $6 BILLION DOLLARS BETWEEN, FRIEN….ER, ADMINISTRATION ALLIES?

The first page of today’s New York Times has an article, meant to be – and, assuming it is accurate, succeeds in being – embarrassing for Donald Trump.  It purports to show how, as a business person, he screwed up a deal with China. But here’s something that has not, as of yet, made it into the Times. Excerpted from Adam Kredo’s article for the Washington Times: The...

STILL FEELING THE BERN

Is Hillary Clinton still worried about Bernie Sanders? Here is your answer, excerpted from Nikki Schwab’s article for London’s Daily Mail: Today Hillary Clinton changed her schedule for the week, canceling an event Thursday in New Jersey and announcing a California swing that would last through the eve of the state’s delegate-rich primary. Once considered an easy win for...

KATIE COURIC’S ACCELERATED DESCENT

Once upon a time, Katie Couric was a vibrant, highly engaging co-host on The Today Show. She was on top of the world. Then it was decided that she was a serious journalist.  And that was the end of her. She took over CBS Evening News in 2006, after Dan Rather was dumped, and moved it exactly nowhere. (That is when I started calling her “Katie Carwreck”.) Then she hosted the...

ABOUT THE EUTHANIZING OF THAT GORILLA

To the mostly well-meaning people who have objected – some furiously – to the euthanizing of “Handsome Harabe”, the Cincinnati zoo’s gorilla, which unexpectedly found itself in possession of a four year old child: What would you have wanted the zoo to do if that were your child? According to the zoo, its personnel tried to distract him and that did not...

MEMORIAL DAY

Today is Memorial Day. As we enjoy the time with our families and friends… …let’s be sure to remember the brave men and women of our armed forces, who have provided us with our freedoms… …and pay our deepest respect to, those who have fallen in their efforts to do so. It is the least we can do to honor the most they could, and did, give.

HILLARY’S HEAD-IN-THE-SAND STRATEGY: WILL IT WORK?

A problem for Democrats. When Donald Trump goes negative on Hillary Clinton, which he has already done big time and most certainly will continue to do, how do you respond. Here is the answer from some of his Clinton’s supporters, via Jordan Carney’s article at the hill.com: Democrats are offering a piece of straightforward advice for Hillary Clinton asDonald Trump threatens to dig...

THE MOST SATISFYING VIDEO OF THE CAMPAIGN SO FAR

With a hefty tip of my imaginary hat to downstreampolitics.com,  here is a video of what happened when an anti-Trump hater who was a both participating in and videoing a vulgar chant about Donald Trump ran into the wrong person – a man with his wife and young child who, to say the very least, demonstrates his objection to the language they were being subjected to. I doubt I have to tell...

Poor Dianne Feinstein. Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee of her party,  and also is embroiled in an enormous scandal concerning her emails – a scandal that conceivably could derail her candidacy. Not surprisingly, therefore, Miss Feinstein  is unhappy with this. So here is what she said about it, on ABC’s “This Week” earlier this morning, via Rebecca...

DEMOCRATS: CONVENTION CHAOS

In case you have any doubts that chaos is a possibility – maybe a probability – maybe a near certainty at the Democratic Convention, this will probably help you to see the light. From an article at Fox News: Bernie Sanders is attempting to wage a fight to the finish for the Democratic presidential nomination — and to upend the party’s “rigged” system — by trying to...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE US

At one time students came from all over the world to study at us colleges and universities. Maybe that is still true, at least to some extent. But how long, before the overtaking of these colleges and universities with “majors” in microaggressions, safe spaces, and keg parties, causes those students to stop coming? And how long before United States corporations start aggressively...
