THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from libby schaaf, Mayor of Oakland, California. Mayor schaaf, you may recall, was nice enough to warn illegal aliens, last month, of an impending Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid, so that they could escape capture.  Because she did, Trump administration officials have noted that it enabled dangerous criminals among them to continue plying their...

TRUMP’S CONGRATULATIONS TO PUTIN

I’ll make this short and to the point. Should President Trump have called to congratulate vladimir putin on his BS, fixed “election”? No.  Abolutely, unequivocally not. Not only was it a BS, fixed “election”, but making the call communicates to people that Trump is in bed with Putin (between him, stormy daniels, and some of the other accusers, that’s one...

A REPUBLICAN LESSON IN ILLINOIS THAT DEMOCRATS THERE – AND EVERYWHERE ELSE – SHOULD LEARN

Illinois House District #3 is heavily Democrat.  No Republican has a serious chance of winning there. Republicans were not going to contest the seat – but a “Republican’ named arthur jones – a White suremacist, nazi-sympathizing, holocaust-denying sack of dog manure – saw this as an opening, and ran.  Since there was no other Republican candidate, he won the...

P.S. 165 ALL OVER AGAIN

I spent 5th and 6th grades at P.S. (Public School) 165, on 150th Street, in Kew Garden Hills, Queens. In P. S. 165’s playground, it would not at all have been uncommon to hear one kid threaten to “beat the hell out of ” another, and the other kid to call him “weak”, “crazy”  and say that, if there was a fight, he would go down “crying all the...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from the formerly revered legal expert and long-time Harvard Professor, Alan Dershowitz. I call him “formerly revered” because, in today’s Democrat Party, Dershowitz – with his non-“progressive” views, lack of innate vindictiveness and support of Israel – is, at best a dinosaur and, at worst, a traitor to the current...

CLOCK BOY GETS HIS CLOCK CLEANED. AGAIN.

Remember “clock boy” ahmed mohamed? To refresh your memory, he was: -The 14 year old who brought a Radio Shack clock radio, repackaged to make it look like a bomb, to his school in Irving, Texas, then showed it around until the police were called and he was briefly detained; -The one who, along with his publicity-obsessed father, claimed he was being discriminated against as a...

HOW MUCH MORE OF THIS CAN BROWARD COUNTY TAKE?

Here, via Christal Hayes’ article for USA Today, is the latest outrage from Broward County’s arrogant, incompetent, unwilling to take responsibility sheriff, scott israel and the staff he so meticulously trained: A deputy tasked with patrolling the Florida high school that was targeted by a mass killer last month was suspended Monday after falling asleep in his patrol car, according...

OF SPORTS PROGRAMMING, PARTISAN POLITICS AND RATINGS

The following table, assuming it is an accurate reflection of what is going on, says a great deal about why sports programming is suffering such an egregious drop in ratings: Personally, as someone with many years’ experience in writing questionnaires, I do not like the wording of this question. By tossing in that “bombarded with” part, it moves from being completely neutral to...

THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE RACIST

On Monday, I wrote a blog which referenced Katherine Kersten’s commentary in the Minneaopolis Star-Tribune, in which Ms. Kersten decried the lowering of standards in St. Paul schools to “even out” Black rates of suspensions and expulsions with those of non-Blacks. At that time, I agreed with Mr. Kersten, and also pointed out that in Parkland, Florida, the same policy enabled...

JAMES COMEY AS A SERIAL LIAR

Not much to write here – just this link to an Investors Business Daily editorial, which enumerates the lies told by former FBI Director/ongoing Trump-hater James Comey. Little wonder mainstream media love and protect this guy.  Lack of honesty notwithstanding, he’s on their side of things. Maybe you’ll feel a little differently…. …and maybe he’ll speak a...

CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICS, PSYCHOGRAPHICS, AND WHOSE OX IS BEING GORED (OR IS IT ROMNEYED?)

Have you been following the so-called “Cambridge Analytics” scandal? The media meme – at least until now, as it blows up in their faces, was that the Trump presidential campaign used a company called Cambridge Analytics (CA) –  which either unethically or illegally obtained profiles of millions and millions of voters from Facebook, and used them to draw...

AUSTIN: A SELF-LIQUIDATOR?

Are the Austin bombings over? Maybe. According to Tony Plohetski’s article at the Austin American-Statesman, the person responsible for a series of bombings in the Austin area which left two dead and several injured is dead.  As police closed in on his car, he blew himself up. Initial information is that he was a 24 year old White man….with, presumably, a lot more about him becoming...

DOES THIS MEAN BILL CLINTON IS WILLIAM HOLDEN?

I’m in the car driving (but stpped as I write this  Honest.) and tuned into Mark Simone radio show. He just referred to Hillary Clinton as ” Norma Desmond” – Sunset Boulevard’s has-been silent movie star, played to the hilt by actual former silent movie star Gloria Swanson, who could not let go of the past and still thought of herself as a marquee idol. I’m a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Rep. Jordan made this comment while unsuccessfully trying to school NBC’s unschoolable, intellectually impenetrable Katy Tur, after Tur complained to him about President Trump’s tweets regarding the Mueller investigation Star Chamber. First, Tur asked Jordan this ultra-loaded question: “If the president feels so...
