JOE BIDEN REGRETS

This retrospective, spoken by former Vice President Joe Biden, comes to us via an article in The Washington Post: “I had a lot of data,” Biden said. “I was fairly confident that if I was the Democratic Party nominee, I had a better-than-even chance of being president.” “But, um.” Biden looked at his hand, flexing it back and forth. I lost part of my soul, my, uh.” He cleared his...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from San Francisco Chronicle columnist Dan Schnur’s latest commentary. They involve the fact that UCLA’s basketball team is going to play an NCAA tournament game in Tennessee – a state where it is illegal for the team to play. Why is it illegal?  Because last year, California enacted legislation prohibiting state funds being used for travel...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Jon Lovett, a speechwriter for Hillary Clinton during last year’s presidential campaign (and who knows for what in the future). This, incredibly, is what he told CNN’s Brian Stelter during today’s “Reliable Sources” show: “You go after Hannity on your show…but then you turn on CNN, and Hannity’s got a little beachhead on...

ANOTHER “WOMEN’S MARCH” ICON MAINSTREAM MEDIA WON’T TALK ABOUT

I understand why I am reading about this at heatst.com.  I understand why I would read about it anywhere. What I don’t understand is why I am not reading it at almost any mainstream media venue. From Lukas Mikelionis’s article: A convicted Palestinian terrorist and a key figure of the recent Women’s March will be deported from the United States after accepting a plea bargain...

WHOSE FAMILY IS THIS ANYWAY?

“They’re our people, but we will do everything possible to make sure that you don’t send them back to us”. That make sense to you? If so, you’ll love this story out of Edinburg, Texas, as excerpted from Oscar Margain’s article for ABC affiliate KVUE: EDINBURG, TX – An undocumented mother of 12 is fighting deportation and she’s getting help from the...

OUR NEW (PREVIOUS) ISRAEL POLICY

Israel, after an 8 year hiatus, is again recognized as the loyal, valuable ally it has always been. Largely lost in the TrumpCare debacle this week, is the following news,  excerpted from Ann Gearan’s article in the Washington Post: The Trump administration is strongly condemning what it calls a systemic anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, arguing Friday that U.N. monitoring of West...

ACADEMIC IDIOCY: GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS COLLEGE

Until a few days ago I had never heard of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. I wish the “pleasure” had been indefinitely postponed. From Anthony Gockowski’s article at campusreform.org: The “Diversity Leadership Council” at Gustavus Adolphus College has admitted to posting racially offensive posters around campus after the school’s Bias Response Team...

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...
