GROAN-INDUCING PUNS (HOW I LOVE THEM)

OK, much too serious in here right now. Apropos of nothing political, here are a group of 26 puns that my sister sent me yesterday. Enjoy.  Or groan.  Or both: 1. The fattest knight at King Arthur’s round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi. 2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian . 3. She was only a...

THE OBAMACARE CONTINUATION – IN PAUL RYAN’S OWN WORDS

Here, pulled from Jeff Poor’s article at breitbart.com, are several selected quotes from Paul Ryan’s press conference, held yesterday after pulling the TrumpCare vote because it would not have passed: “I don’t know what else to say other than Obamacare’s the law of the land. It’s going to be remain the law of the land until it’s replaced. We did not have quite the votes...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Maryland attorney Andrew Jezic. Jezic is defending henry sanchez-milian, the 18 year old “9th grader” (how many 18 year old 9th graders have you ever heard of) who, with his 17 year old pal, raped a 14 year old girl in his class. Attorney Jezic’s defense?  Here it is: “This was a preplanned, consensual, non-forcible encounter. … There is...

THE OBAMACARE REPRIEVE

ObamaCare lives.  TrumpCare – at present, in its current form – does not. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan pulled the TrumpCare bill on Friday, because enough Republicans – albeit for far different reasons – were joining Democrats in voting against it to insure that it could not pass. Democrats voted against it because they are committed to ObamaCare, even as they watch it...

THE DE BLASIO SCANDAL & CLINTON TWIST

New York Mayor bill de blasio is trying to sweep this one under the rug. New York City being New York City, maybe he can.  But, then again, maybe he can’t. Excerpted from Madeleine Weast’s article at Washington Free Beacon (freebeacon.com) – and use the link, because there’s a lot more there: Jona Rechnitz, a major donor to New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio...

THE WASHINGTON POST’S DESPERATION

How desperate is the Washington Post over the possibility Donald Trump was right about being wiretapping? Desperate enough to write this editorial, published today. Here are the first three paragraphs: REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-Calif.) on Monday denouncedwhat he described as the illegal leak of classified information concerning conversations between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials. He...

HOW DEEP IS THE TRUMP TAPPING SCANDAL?

Right now we are still at the stage where Democrats, and their complicit media, are deriding Donald Trump for his claim that Trump’s offices were wiretapped. But here, in the first four paragraphs of Fox News White House Correspondent James Rosen’s latest article, is a major-league “what if?”: Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team...

THE ABSOLUTE FUNNIEST OP-ED HEADLINE OF THE YEAR (MAYBE THE DECADE)

I swear I didn’t make this up. Today’s Los Angeles Times (maybe Lost Angeles Times would be more like it) has an op-ed piece, by hard-leftist (there’s a surprise) Ann Friedman, which is titled: Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha….etc. for about 10 minutes, or until my sides hurt too much to continue. While I’m...

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY

Today I am putting up more than one Quote Of The Day.  When you read them, I think you will understand why. The first comes to us from Dr. Jack Smith, the Superintendent of Schools for Montgomery, Maryland – where, as you may be aware, a 14 year old Rockville girl was violently raped, on school grounds, by two 9th grade “students”, aged 17 and 18, both of whom are illegal...

THE OBAMACARE ULTIMATUM

It is being reported that President Trump has tossed out an ultimatum.  He has demanded that the ObamaCare replacement legislation be voted on tomorrow – and passed – or he will just forget the whole thing and leave the current system in place. Anyone who believes that Donald Trump would actually do that needs a crash course in Mr. Trump’s capacity for BluSter (the B and S are...

THE NUNES ACCUSATION

Since, if you are a political junkie, you have heard a good deal about Rep. Devin Nunes’ disclosures regarding information-gathering…and, it would appear, illegal dissemination of the information that was gathered…I thought it would be useful to read these excerpts from Bill Gertz’s highly informative article at freebeacon.com: Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the chairman...

THE THREATENED GORSUCH FILIBUSTER

I like to think of myself as being reasonably intelligent.  But maybe I’m wrong…because I cannot figure out what benefit Democrats would derive from their threatened filibuster of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s vote for the Supreme Court. Let’s consider the logical sequence: -Schumer makes good on his threat – which thrills his party’s hard left base angers the right...

CHELSEA CLINTON’S “JERRY SEINFELD” AWARD

Jerry Seinfeld was famed for inventing the concept of “a show about nothing”* Well, Variety magazine has decided to provide us with its version of this concept:  a “lifetime achievement award about nothing”. From Emily Zanotti’s article at heatstreet.com: Next month, Variety magazine will host its annual “Women in Power” luncheon, where it will pass out honors...

JEW ON JEW FAKE HATE CRIME

In case you thought this was only a Black or Muslim issue…. From Isabel Kershner, Alan Blinder and Adam Goldman’s article in today’s New York Times: The police on Thursday arrested an Israeli teenager who holds American citizenship in connection with scores of threats to Jewish institutions, including dozens of community centers in the United States, law enforcement officials...

TAVIS SMILEY’S DISASSOCIATION FROM REALITY

I used to be something of a fan of Tavis Smiley’s.  I thought of him as a smart guy who I agreed with sometimes, disagreed with sometimes, but always made sense. That assessment, sad to say, is further and further from what he is now. Case in point:  the following exchange between Mr. Smiley and Andrew Sullivan (who usually agrees with him), from Smiley’s Tuesday show on PBS –...
