THE COMEY/FITZPATRICK CONNECTION

As you may be aware, james comey has appointed patrick fitzgerald – the former “Plamegate” Independent Counsel – as his personal lawyer. That certainly makes sense.  Birds of a feather tend to flock together.  And these two slimebuckets go back a long way together. From Peter Berkowitz’s absolutely invaluable commentary on their relationship, we have this...

BROWARD COUNTY’S “ANSWER” TO THE PARKLAND MASSACRE

If you like pathetic, this will probably disappoint you. But if you like pathetic on steroids, times 1,000, you might be impressed. On March 9th, Florida’s state legislature passed the so-called “red flag” law, which empowers police to obtain a court order and remove weapons from the homes of people deemed significant threats to the public. It is now almost two months later, and...

ISRAEL: PRAISED WITH OVERT DAMNATION

We’ve all heard the saying “damned with faint praise”.  But how often do we see praise, with overt – not faint, but overt – damnation? Well, suppose you are an Egyptian who formerly held a high position in government and now teaches at a prominent Egyptian university? And suppose you want to write honestly about why Israel is so far advanced compared to Egypt, and...

THE JOY ANN REID MESS (CONT.)

Much to my surprise, MSNBC – at least so far – is standing by joy ann reid. Its problem is that, years ago, Reid wrote a torrent of insulting material about gay people.  She apologized when the first collection came out.  Then when a lot more such material was unearthed she circled the wagons with what turns out to be a ridiculous, easily-debunked claim that her website had been...

CALLING OUT JIM ACOSTA

On Wednesday, I sarcastically awarded ABC Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta Quote Of The Day “honors” for his belittling comment about President Donald Trump, and suggestion that people who believe Mr. Trump are mentally defective. His exact quote: “The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act.  They’re not in on the act, and they take what...

ALFIE EVANS, R.I.P.

My congratulations to the United Kingdom health care system.  It has gotten its wish. Alfie Evans passed away last night.  The 23 month old child died over three days after his life support apparatus was removed – thus over three days longer than the doctors expected… …and without being brought to Italy, where an experimental treatment might have prolonged his time on earth...

james clapper: THE LIAR MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL NOT CALL OUT

If you’re looking to find former members of the Obama administration who are actively involved in an effort to take down the legally-elected Trump administration, you won’t have much trouble finding them. But james clapper stands out as both one of the most prominent, and one of the least reported-on by mainstream media. Paul Mirengoff, of powerlineblog.com, has written a superb piece...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Cornel West – an “educator”who, based on what I have heard from him on various talk shows, has gotten further with less than just about anyone I’ve come across. Here is what he told the assembled group (I don’t know how large it was) at a  “Save Our Sons: Stop the Killing” and “Condemn Donald Trump” National...

THE ART OF THE (NORTH KOREA AND CHINA) DEAL?

North Korea threatens us with nuclear attack by saying he has the button.  Trump tells him “I have a bigger button, and it works”. Trump tells China he’s going to tariff a ton of goods that China sends here, even as we impose few tariffs on the Chinese.  Xi Ping threatens massive retaliation….for all of one week.  Then backs down and says he’s going to give us a...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from james comey, who seems determined to prove he is an idiot, a liar or both. During last night’s interview with Fox News Channel’s Brett Baier, comey made this definitively untrue claim about the so-called “Steele dossier”: “I knew it was first funded by Republicans”  No, comey, it was not first funded by Republicans. It was never...

SHERIFF israel’s NO-CONFIDENCE VOTE

The Deputy Sheriff’s Association of Southern Florida – possibly for their own motives, it should be noted – has done what the people of Broward County have not.  It has demanded that scott israel be fired. From Paul Crookston’s article at freebeacon.com: Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel does not have the confidence of his deputies in southern Florida, according to a...

A TALE OF TWO BRITISH BABIES

It is a joyous time for Prince William and Princess Kate.  Their newborn baby has just been named.  He is Prnce Louis Arthur Charles. I wish Louis Arthur Charles a long, happy, healthy life.  And, if he should need significant medical care, the best that the UK can provide. Now, what about Alfie Evans? Most people in the United States, I suspect, have never heard of Alfie Evans.  But...

THE KOREAN SUMMIT

Yesterday, South Korea’s elected head of state, Moon Jae-in, and North Korea’s inherited head of state, kim jung-un, met for the first time. The purpose was to discuss denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and, eventually, peace – maybe even some kind of reunification – between the two countries. Personally, I have little hope that it will happen any time soon. But what...

THE END OF JOY ANN REID?

First  There were the homophobic blog posts. Then, after her apology for them, there was the unearthing of a great many more homophobic blog posts, which she said were the result of her long-defunct website being posthumously hacked – a claim so ludicrous that even her left wing cohorts were shaking their heads in disbelief and disgust. In fact, the claim’s “ludicrousity...
