THE VENEZUELA DEATH SPIRAL CONTINUES

Venezuela’s demise as a viable country continues, with the following new “initiative” by its sort-of-elected President (if you believe he runs legitimate elections), nicolas maduro. Excerpted from Alexandra Ulmer’s article at Reuters: Mobs of Venezuelans gathered outside some Caracas supermarkets on Saturday after President Nicolas Maduro’s government forced shops to...

ISRAEL AS A “MORAL ISSUE”: ACADEMIA-STYLE

You can’t make this stuff up. From Rachel Frommer’s article at freebeacon.com: Dozens of humanities scholars cancelled their membership with their field’s leading professional academic organization ahead of its annual convention, in retaliation for the group refusing to impose boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel. The defecting professors wrote to the Modern...

THINGS FOR THE BDS MOVEMENT TO B, D AND S

I believe in freedom of thought and freedom of speech.  I therefore believe people have every right to speak out about their demands to boycott, divest and sanction when it comes to Israel. But I also believe it is worth knowing what emanates from Israel that would be boyotted, divested (i.e. unfunded) and subject to those sanctions. For that reason I will be putting up a series of things for...

A QUICK QUESTION FOR DEMOCRAT STRATEGISTS

If Donald Trump accomplished the most improbable election victory in U.S. history, and it was based on a campaign of job creation, better paying jobs and border security… …why do you think your party’s positions of being against tax legislation that incents corporations to keep/expand their operations in the United States, being against a border wall, and being in favor of...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SELF-ASSESSMENT

When will Donald Trump learn that there are times when the best thing to do is just shut up? Since the Trump/Russia collusion illusion has largely fallen by the wayside, some media – desperate to nail President Trump for something – are floating the premise that President Trump is mentally disabled/incapacitated/senile/insentient/pick your own adjective, it’s probably out there...

WHAT THE HELL DO YOU HAVE TO WIN?

Remember when, during the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Donald Trump pointed to the disastrous circumstances for Black residents in cities with decades of one-party Democrat rule and exhorted then to vote for him because “what the hell do you have to lose”? Mr. Trump did not ask what the hell they had to win, but I think it would be fair to say that more jobs would be one of...

FLEEING THE FLEECING TO FLORIDA

What do you do if you earn a lot of money and live in, say Connecticut?  How do you escape its taxation rate? You move to somewhere that has lower taxes, that’s what you do. Excerpted from an editorial in the Hartford Courant: Connecticut’s money is moving out — and a lot of it is moving to Florida. It’s common knowledge now that Connecticut is seeing an exodus of residents...

WHAT WE LOSE IF WE LOSE ISRAEL (CONT.)

Believe it or not, this latest installment of the “What we lose if we lose Israel” series concerns….poultry waste. The amount of such waste – especially chicken waste – is massive.  And the energy crisis is real. So the researchers at Ben-Gurion University have found a way of using that waste to resolve the energy crisis. Does that sound like a comedy sketch of some...

THE “GLOBAL WARMING” CARTOONS

As much of the country continues its deep freeze (the forecast for my area is a high of +14 degrees and a low of -4, which is 25 degrees below normal), I thought you might want to see a few of the cartoons on this subject which were compiled by Steve Hayward at powerlineblog.com. Point made?  I’d think so. Steve has a bunch of additional cartoons doing the same kind of damage on this...

THE TRUMP ECONOMY

A lot has been written about the soaring economy since Donald Trump was elected President – including the absurd, though entertaining in a way, claim by Democrats that this is Barack Obama’s doing. Here is the latest news, via this excerpt from Ali Meyer’s article at freebeacon.com: Forty-two percent of businesses surveyed said they expect the current employment market to trend...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Nikki Haley, former Governor of South Carolina and our current Ambassador to the United Nations. Here are the key parts of her statement to that Useless, Neutered body of preening do-nothings about the protests in Iran: “Today the people of Iran are speaking to their government and their message is undeniable.  Stop the support for terrorism. Stop...

DESTROYING THE COUNTRY TO SAVE YOUR ADMINISTRATION

Suppose your country is an economic shambles.  A catastrophe – not in the making but well in progress. Suppose one of the key reasons for the economic shambles is that your government has nationalized just about every industry that would have contributed to a better economy. Suppose your country’s inflation rate is among the highest – quite possibly the single highest –...

COMMON SENSE FROM AMMO GRRLL

Every Friday, at powerlineblog.com – one of my very favorite websites, as any regular reader must know – we get a column from someone calling him or herself “Ammo Grrll” (the pseudonym suggests “her”, but who knows?) Today’s subject is sexual harassment.  And, as usual, Ms. Grrll is right on target. Here are key excerpts – which, I very much hope...
