Excerpted from article at heatst.com: The City of Berkeley has floated the idea of setting up areas for “fencing with sponge noodles” or “laughter yoga” (among other things) and having “quiet conversations” with “anti-fascist”...

FIVE MINUTES OF HILLARY CLINTON

I just watched about five minutes of Hillary Clinton being interviewed by Christiane Amanpour, at a “Women for Women International” gathering, before an enthusiastically supportive audience… …whining about how it is Russia’s fault she lost, it is that Trump conspired with Putin, it is that James Comey did her in.  Then one sentence about taking full responsibility...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs of the day come to us from Republican strategist and speechwriter Marc Theissen. Mr. Thiessen, having seen the many media evaluations of Donald Trump’s first 100 days, decided to turn things around and evaluate the same 100 days for Democrats. This has resulted in an excellent commentary – and here are three especially trenchant paragraphs from it, which...

PUNISHING LEGALS

How would you feel if your high school child were deprived of a really great school trip, because illegal aliens – i.e. students who should not be in the school but are being educated at taxpayer expense – won’t be able to go along with your child? That’s an interesting theoretical isn’t it? But for students in Kent, Washington, a city nestled between Seattle and...

WHY HILLARY CLINTON LOST. AGAIN

Here, via the last paragraphs of an editorial at Investors Business Daily (IBD), is the latest attempt at explaining to Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats why Donald Trump became President: The Democrats chose someone as the standard-bearer of their party who had a very low likability quotient with average voters to begin with.

STILL THE WORLD’S RICHEST BARROOM LOUDMOUTH

“Just when I thought I’m out, they pull me back in” Michael Corleone, in Godfather III (the one where he dies – and, considering the quality of this “Godfather” movie compared to the other two, not a moment too soon). I recalled that quote yesterday, when I learned that after calling North Korea’s lunatic head of state, kim jung-un “a pretty smart...

A MEASURE OF THE “TOLERANT” LEFT

A dose of reality – from, of all places, a research study by Dartmouth College, conducted among its students: There’s your “tolerant” left. Oh, and in case you think this must be one of those push-polls, or a sample stacked with right wingers – you know, the real intolerant people, or so we’re told – the same sample disapproves of Donald Trump by...

BEN STEIN ON MAINSTREAM MEDIA

Ana Cabrera invited Ben Stein on her Sunday show, CNN Newsroom. Big Mistake, Ana.  Mr. Stein is extremely smart, extremely sharp, and extremely unworried about speaking against media when on a cable news show.  He also has no problem defending President Trump against the obnoxious “comedy of Hasan Nidhaj during Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, or reminding media...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Baltimore’s Mayor, Catherine Pugh.  And it is one that mayors of other major cities around the country – most notably Chicago, but it is far from the only one – should pay close attention to: “I’m calling on all the assistance we can possibly get because I can’t imagine going into our summer months with our crime rate where it is...
