WHY “AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL” IS AN UNDENIABLE FLOP

Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Sequel” has been out for a month now.  In the first few days, when it was showing in 4 well-selected theaters, it played to packed houses. When it expanded to 180 theaters, the numbers dropped like a rock.  And now, in over 500 theaters – still only a small fraction of the 3,000+ theaters a hit movie would be distributed to – it is...

HOW TO TOSS OUT FALSE CHARGES AND LOSE ELECTIONS

The Democrat Party has managed to lose something like 1,000 federal and state office holders over the past eight years, taking it from 60% majorities to minorities in both houses of congress, and losing almost half its state Governors (from 29 to 15). How did this happen? In no small part, by ignoring basic issues such as jobs, secure borders and religious freedom while playing “identity...

TERRIFIC EVENING

God I love days like this. We drove into New York with dear friends, got parking about one block from Lincoln Center, Staked out our seats in the Great Plaza, Had drinks and a light dinner at PJ Clarke’s, and now we are going to be seeing a live-on-tape presentation of Rigoletto in perfect weather. It doesn’t get much better than that.

MORE BDS BS

I love this story From an article at the Jewish Telegraphic Agency: An Israeli technology firm has launched in Iceland what it says is the world’s first commercial food delivery route based entirely on unmanned aerial vehicles. Flytrex has partnered in the Nordic country with the on-demand goods service AHA,  to provide the service in the capital of Reykjavík, the Icelandic firm announced...

FROM THE “YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP” FILE (CONT.)

Would you believe “Gone With The Wind” is gone with the wind? Well, unless saner heads prevail, in Memphis, Tennessee that is actually going to be a reality. From David Royer’s article for WRGM, CBS’s Memphis affiliate:  “Gone With the Wind” will be gone from The Orpheum’s summer movie series, the theater’s board said Friday. The Orpheum Theatre Group decided not...

TOO CUTE NOT TO POST

I make a point of not posting anything about my family in here. But this picture of our beautiful new grand-niece and two of her very best friends is going to be an exception. If this doesn’t make you smile, you’re incapable of smiling.

HOW MEDIA CREATE – AND PERPETUATE – FAKE NEWS

First, one side of an imaginary discussion about the Charlottesville riot: President Trump is a racist and a nazi sympathizer – maybe even an outright nazi.  Right? I mean he must be, since he said all those nice things about the racists and nazis in Charlottesville two weeks ago, didn’t he? Uh…what’s that? He didn’t say anything nice about them?  Well, yeah, but...

DOUG ADLER’S FIRING – AND LAWSUIT

Gorilla.  Guerilla.  They sound the same, but have different meanings – as demonstrated by possible gaffes such as: -A revolution can include a lot of gorilla fighting, and -We’re in the zoo and just passed the guerilla cage. What you just read might seem innocuous.  But not to Doug Adler, who was fired from his sportscasting job at the increasingly laughable ESPN, because the...

THE COST OF NEVER-TRUMP?

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) are two “Never-Trump” Republicans running for re-election next year. Both have pro-Trump competition. And here is the way things look right now (always subject to change, of course): -In Arizona, a poll conducted within the month shows Flake at an 18% approval overall – with Republicans (22% approve/63% disapprove) in...

RACIALIZATION IN THE NAME OF ENDING RACISM

From Anthony Gockowski’s article at campusreform.org: The University of Missouri is hosting weekly meetings exclusively for “students, staff, and faculty of color” to discuss “skills for surviving and resisting hate” at the “Predominantly White Institution.” According to a description promoted by the a Facebook page run by the Mizzou College of Education, the “Healing...

FROM THE “YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP” FILE

Why would a school punish a first grade student?  For being messy?  Talking too loud?  Being too physical with another child? How about this – as excerpted from Bradford Richardson’s article for the Washington Times: An elite charter school in California has been rocked by scandal since the end of the last school year, when a kindergarten teacher read her class a pair of books...

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION…FOR REAL (FINALLY)

Let’s start with a non-racial comparative. Suppose colleges and universities around the country decided it would be a good idea to increase the number of students who wear blue shirts.  So they lowered the admission standards for blue-shirted applicants and got more of them in. How do you think the blue shirts would do at those colleges and universities?  Knowing that they were admitted...

AN OBAMACARE BLAST FROM THE PAST

As the battle over ObamaCare continues to rage, I thought it might be good to repost the following blog, which I wrote three years ago today, so readers can be reminded of the realities of this “health care” initiative – and of mainstream media’s complicity in burying bad news about it: Here is the latest information about ObamaCare; information which was released by the...

THREE LINKS FOR THE ANTIFA AND BLACLIVESMATTER CROWD

Here, from the invaluable freerepublic.com, are three links that, it seems to me, would be of interest to the “antifa” and blacklivesmatter crowd: -Dems;Club Where Clinton Golfed Retains Ways of Old South [Member of Whites Only Club] (NY Times article from 1992) -As Governor, Bill Clinton Kept ‘Confederate’ Star On The Arkansas Flag -Nancy Pelosi’s father helped dedicate...

MESSING WITH THE WRONG GUY

We have a President of the United States who, on any given day, is going to toss his prepared speech and talk like some guy at the next bar stool. A great many people like him for this.  And a great many people dislike him for this – even despise and fear him. But, for better or worse,  I suspect most people on both sides think he is real. How does that compare to Senate Majority Leader...
