BERNIE SANDERS LEAVES THE DEMOCRAT PARTY (ON THE DAY KAINE AND OBAMA ARE SPEAKING)!!

This is not satire, folks.  It is real. One day after “endorsing” Hillary Clinton and – very significantly – not waiting until the Democrats’ national convention has ended – Bernie Sanders announced he is leaving the party and going back to being a political independent. Read all about it at the Wall Street Journal web site (and, in a short time I am sure...

I used to play in a Friday night poker game, with a number of guys in the neighborhood.  One of them, Arnie Weissberger – a very good player – sometimes tossed caution to the winds and bet “on the come” (i.e. he stayed in with a less-than-stellar hand, hoping it would improve when the remaining cards came out.)  Arnie’s signature comment when he did, was...

A JAILABLE SCANDAL

Is this a jailable offense?  You tell me. From Kathryn Watson’s article at dailycaller.com: Department of Labor (DOL) officials likely violated federal law when they said they had records requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), then six years later said they didn’t and deleted an email account that proved otherwise, Americans for Limited Government (ALG) said in a FOIA...

DONALD TRUMP’S FLIP-OFF AND MEDIA’S FLIP-OUT

How does Donald Trump do it?  How does he wind up the lead story on the night President Obama speaks at the Democrats’ national convention? You may or may not like Mr. Trump.  But can we concede he has a genius for co-opting the spotlight? Here is what has moved everything else to the side, as excerpted from Jeremy Diamond and Stephen Collinson’s article for CNN (and wait until you...

CHICAGO’S GUN CONTROL “SUCCESS”

Chicago has what arguably are the strictest gun control laws of any city in the United States. So, since gun control is what makes us safe, Chicago must be one helluva safe city, right? Before answering, I suggest you read the following excerpts from Dan Hinkel’s article in today’s Chicago Tribune: Chicago’s per capita homicide rate climbed over the last decade, and the chances...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Donald Trump.  And, in this case (never a guarantee with Trump), he is making perfectly good sense. Here is what The Donald has to say about the fact that it has been almost 8 months – count ’em, 8 months – since Hillary Clinton condescended to give a press conference: “…(it has been) 235 days since Crooked Hillary Clinton has...

THE FREDDY GRAY NIGHTMARE ENDS

Do you remember Freddy Gray? Gray was the career miscreant who was arrested by Baltimore police, put in a van to the police station, suffered major spinal trauma while being transported, and died a week later. Do you also remember that six Baltimore police officers were charged with a variety of offenses, including murder, because of this incident? And that it spurred a rioting/burning/looting...

THE RACIST MARCH, THE MEDIA SILENCE

“Black media get to the back.  “White media come to the front…get to the back or you will be out from this fuckin’ march” What do you suppose mainstream media would say about a group at the Republican national  convention, whose White organizer screamed that into a mike…and also, further on, told White media that the front was “their rightful...

BILL CLINTON’S MINI-MARATHON SPEECH

Yesterday, Bill Clinton stood at the Democrat National Convention podium and spoke for a long time.  Longer than he should have (Mr. Clinton is no stranger to overly long speeches). His purpose was to sell Hillary Clinton…with the first part talking about his earliest memories, from the time they met in 1971 (more on that date later), through their pre-marital period, and then as husband...

A NOTE TO MY FACEBOOK FRIENDS

As posted on my facebook page: I would like to thank my many Democrat and/or liberal and/or hard left friends for bombarding me relentlessly with pro-Hillary Clinton propaganda over the last several months, and very especially over the last several days. My facebook page is creaking from the sheer weight of it. However, despite reading over and over and over how wonderful she is and how she never...

HANK JOHNSON: IDIOT AND ISRAEL HATER

Do you remember Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA)? Johnson is the congressperson who actually told a military commander he feared that if too many military personnel were deployed to the island of Guam “the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize“?  (Yes, so help me God, he really said that.  Click here and see/hear for yourself). Well, in addition to...

STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE: YESTERDAY’S DWS

Did you know that, in the absence of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democrats’ national convention was ushered in by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake? To remind you, Ms. Rawlings-Blake – who will not (can not is more like it) run for re-election, was the genius who said this about the street rioting after Freddy Gray’s death: “It’s a very delicate balancing act...

AMERICAN FLAGS AND DEMOCRATS

Did anyone see an American flag on the stage at the Democrats’ convention? I’m not talking about rows and rows of them, I’m talking about just one. Me neither. ========================== UPDATE:  Well, well, well. Look what is belatedly being added to the stage on day two:   It will never happen…but I would love  one of tonight’s speakers to make this offer...

AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT OF RADICAL ISLAM….

….we have this horrific news from France, via Tom Batchelor’s article for London’s Daily Express: A PRIEST had his throat slit and several others were taken hostage after armed men stormed a church in Normandy during morning mass today, as President Francois Hollande said ISIS had declared war on France. The hostage, said to be 84-year-old Father Jacques Hamel, was killed by...

DEMOCRATS AND NON-EXISTENT RADICAL ISLAM

“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention”  That, readers, is not my conclusion.  It is the conclusion of...
