TWO UNCONTROLLED LOUDMOUTHS AT WORK

President Donald Trump spoke at Saturday Night’s Gridiron Dinner.  Like the Al Smith dinner in New York City, this is traditionally a forum for pointed humor aimed at political figures – which Mr. Trump was happy to provide, hitting many of them in both parties, including himself. This is what he said about Maxine Waters, which was couched in a broadside against Nancy Pelosi as...

AS CALIFORNIA GOES, SO GOES THE DEMOCRAT PARTY?

God help the Democrat Party if their pace-setting paradigm is California. The New York Post has written an excellent editorial on this, which is too short to excerpt.  So here it is, every word: How far left is the Democratic Party headed? Look to California, where last month’s state party convention went off the deep end. The first sign of lunacy was the delegates’ refusal to endorse...

THE CALIFORNIA CESSPOOL

California – with an air of smugness and superiority from its so-called leaders – is going straight down the crapper. Los Angeles is up to an estimated 58,000 homeless. San Francisco’s streets are laden with used needles and feces. Yet Californians continue to elect the same people who have brought the state to this condition. And they’re telling us what we’re doing...

THE “MARCH FOR OUR LIVES”

I just received a facebook invitation to join the “March For Our Lives” on March 24th. And what is the “March For Our Lives”? Well, here is its mission statement: Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one...

THE MUELLER EXPANSION

What do you do when your investigation is almost a year old and you still can’t nail the guy you’re investigating on the things you’re investigating him for? Why, you investigate him on the things you aren’t investigating him for, and maybe you’ll find something there. From Mark Mazzetti, David D. Kirkpatrick and Maggie Haberman’s article in today’s New...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Devin Nunes, chairperson of the House Intelligence Committee.  It concerns the collusion with Russia he openly admits took place during the 2016 presidential election. Huh  What?  He said that? Yes he did.  But before you get too shocked, read the quote: “We have a media that pretty much refuses to cover this issue at all. We have serious abuses that...

THE ACADEMY AWARDS SHOW

Tonight we will be “treated” to this year’s academy award show. Do you care? If so, a few points and questions: -The show will be hosted by Trump-hating Jimmy Kimmel who, like other late-night show hosts, has made a career out of battering the president just about daily.  It is hard to believe that won’t be happening tonight as well.  And it is just as likely that...

THE VENEZUELA OUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA DO NOT TALK ABOUT

A Reuters reporter and photographer traveled with a group of migrants as they fled Venezuela, a nation in stomach-dropping free fall where fear and want are the new normal. On a bus ride through five South American countries, the Venezuelans dreamed of a better life ahead — but couldn’t forget the broken land they had left behind. That is the start of a revealing, horrible, devastating...

IS MIKE GRUNWALD A COMPLETE FOOL?

I apologize to politico.com writer Mike Grunwald for the above title.  I’m almost 100% certain he is not a complete fool. But his latest article forces me at least consider the possibility. Why so? Well, first read these two paragraphs. The first, buried in the middle of his article is: The critics argue that the sheriff’s office failed to prevent the shooting despite dozens of warnings...

THINGS FOR THE BDS MOVEMENT TO B, D AND S (CONT.)

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. Here is another in the series of advances which emanate from...

NOT-SO-FUNNY CARTOONS ABOUT THE PARKLAND MASSACRE
