GERMANY: THE NEW NORMAL

This delightful story comes to us  from Germany, via Charlie Moore’s article in London’s Daily Mail: An asylum seeker who jokingly wore a T-shirt saying ‘I’m Muslim, don’t panic’ was so savagely beaten by his fellow refugees that he had to be rushed to hospital. The 23-year-old Iraqi had thought that his fellow Islamic asylum seekers would see the funny side...

BUT THE UN CITED ISRAEL

Excerpted from Thomas Erdbrink’s article in the New York Times: More than 30 college students were arrested, interrogated and within 24 hours were each given 99 lashes for attending a graduation party that included men and women, Iran’s judiciary has announced. The punishments, which were believed to be part of a wider crackdown by a judiciary dominated by hard-liners, were meted out in...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from an unlikely source, at least to me: Nina Burleigh, who writes for Newsweek. Here is what Ms. Burleigh has to say about the current academic brownshirt insanity sweeping college campuses across the country: During his 18 years as president of Lebanon Valley College during the middle of the past century, Clyde Lynch led the tiny Pennsylvania liberal arts...

SAMSUNG’S “UPGRADE”

Yesterday I got a message on my Samsung Droid telling me I was getting an upgrade. Today the charger I have been using successfully for a half year no longer is operating almost at all, and I’m getting a message telling me to use Samsung equipment. Try to imagine how resentful I am that Samsung pulled this crap on me.

MILO YIANNOPOULOS DEMANDS HIS MONEY BACK

Two days ago I blogged about conservative gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos being prevented from speaking at DePaul University by protesters who took over the stage took his microphone and threatened him with violence…while security guards which DePaul insisted that Yiannopoulos himself pay for, refused to do a thing about it.  School administrators, who were in the room at the time, stood by...

AN ENDORSEMENT DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ PROBABLY CAN DO WITHOUT

I am sure you know that Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) is chairperson of the Democratic National Committee. But you might not be aware of the fact that she is currently in a primary battle – a more difficult one than almost anyone could have thought possible even just a few weeks ago – with Tim Canova, a hard-leftist who has obtained the endorsement of, among others, Hillary...

BUT THE UN CITED ISRAEL…..

In March, the United Nations annual Commission on the Status of Women report cited exactly one country on earth as worthy of mention when it came to abuse of women:  Israel. Today we have this, excerpted from Jerome Hudson’s article at breitbart.com Pakistan’s 20-member constitutional body — recently proposed a bill recommending that men bestow a “light beating” onto their...

THE STATE DEPARTMENT REPORT ON HILLARY CLINTON’S EMAILS: REMARKABLE

The State Department Inspector General’s report on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is remarkable. Why?  Because its findings (e.g. her lies about getting permission to use a private server, her phony comparison to Colin Powell’s use of a private server etc. etc. etc.) are so egregious that, even though the State Department is currently controlled by Democrats, it can’t...

THE PALESTINIAN MUSEUM

Did you know that The Palestinian Museum, conceived in 1998 and built near the city of Ramallah at a cost of about $24 million dollars, opened in this week? You might wonder what a Palestinian Museum could possibly have inside, since Palestine is a land area rather than a country (there has never been a country of Palesine), it has no cultural base and the Palestinian people have no distinct...

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE 2016 CAMPAIGN COULD NOT GET ANY MORE BIZARRE….

….Donald Trump has more or less challenged Bernie Sanders to a debate before the June 7 California primary, and Bernie Sanders has accepted. I use the “more or less” qualifier because Trump said he would debate only if significant money were put up for a charitable cause – “maybe women’s health issues”. Personally, I doubt such a debate will come off.  I...

THE UN EXPOSES ITS TRUE (ANTI-ISRAEL, ANTI-SEMITIC ) COLORS. AGAIN.

From Itamar Eichner’s March 20th article in ynetnews.com: Out of nine official documents produced from the UN’s annual Commission on the Status of Women report, only one of the UN’s 193 members were mentioned in regards to ongoing infringement of women’s rights – Israel. Yes, you read that right. Women all over the world are horribly abused.  In many countries they are...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Gayle King, co-anchor of CBS This Morning. She actually said this – presumably in the hope that someone would believe her, on this morning’s show, during a discussion of the Department of Justice’s scathingly critical report about Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal server while Secretary Of State: “How big a deal is this, really...

WILL MITT ROMNEY RUN THIRD-PARTY?

The following excerpts are drawn from Betsy Fischer Martin and Tammy Haddad’s article at bloomberg.com: Mitt Romney may not have seen his last presidential campaign after all, according to Bill Kristol. The Weekly Standard editor said on Bloomberg Politics’ Masters in Politics podcast that Romney, who has been highly critical of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald...

BALTIMORE: LEARNING THAT ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

Remember the name Marilyn Mosby?  Ms. Mosby is the Baltimore State Attorney who – quite possibly to suck up to the #blacklivesmatter crowd – egregiously overcharged 6 Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddy Gray. Two trials have taken place so far:  one – of officer William Porter (more on Mr. Porter further on) resulted in a mistrial (a poll of the jury found 11-1...

THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL: BAD…AND GETTING WORSE (CONT.)

Having just finished writing the previous blog, I walked to the driveway and got my copy of today’s New York Times. Here are the first three paragraphs of its lead story, written by Steven Lee Myers and Eric Lichtblau: The State Department’s inspector general on Wednesday sharply criticized Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private email server while she was secretary of state...
