ELIZABETH WARREN: LIAR (AND HERE’S THE PROOF)

I assume you remember nathan philips, the Native American who claimed he was surrounded, intimidated and threatened by Covington Catholic High School students at the Lincoln Memorial…and received massive, positive/sympathatic media attention, until video emerged which blew his BS story to smithereens. I also assume you remember philips claiming to be a Vietnam veteran – then, when...

RUTH BADER GINSBURG’S (NON)PUBLIC APPEARANCE

Did you know that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was out on the town?  That she made her first public appearance in over a month? On Monday, she attended a concert in her honor, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  The concert, featuring her musician/performer daughter in law, was meant as was a paean to Ms. Ginsburg’s greatness. And here are the pictures of Ms...

THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

My wife and I did not see President Trump’s State of the Union address (click here for the transcript).  We heard it on the radio while driving home after visiting our family.  So I can’t comment on the visuals until I look at the recording. But from what I heard, Mr. Trump owes whomever wrote that speech an enormous debt of gratitude. Not only did it outline the remarkable number...

HAS BUZZFEED GONE COMPLETELY OFF THE RAILS?

Get ready! Get set! Here comes another major, in-your-face, it’s all over exposé about Donald Trump from buzzfeed.com. This time, it is that “secret files” (buzzfeed’s terminology) have been unearthed that prove Donald Trump may have discussed building an “over-the-top luxury real estate venture” (again, buzzfeed’s terminology:  in fact it was a single...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa). Yesterday, probably as the result of Virginia governor ralph northam making it clear that he was on board with a mother and her family deciding whether a newly born, out of the womb, baby should or should not be allowed to die – otherwise known as infanticide – Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) introduced legislation that would...

A QUICK REMINDER ABOUT NORTHAM AND INFANTICIDE

Now that, for the better (actually worse) part of a week, the entire discussion about Virginia Governor ralph northam has centered on accusations of racism… …I thought it would be both useful and important to remind readers that the original issue was northam’s casually-stated acceptance of infanticide. That’s right, infanticide.  Not stopping at abortion right up to the...

JUSTIN FAIRFAX: #METOO, OR #NOTTHISTIME?

In 2004, Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax, then 25 years old and unmarried, had sex with a woman in a hotel room. Now, that woman has come forward and claimed that, while she willingly kissed Fairfax, at some point she said no, and he forced himself on her – specifically, holding her down and forcing her to perform oral sex. Does anyone other than these two know what...

PUTTING UP A WALL TO STOP THE WALL

Did you know that about a dozen Democrats (expect that number to rise) are working on legislation to prevent President Trump from declaring a national emergency to build a wall between the United States and Mexico? I kid you not. According to Sam Brodey’s article for dailybeast.com, one of the bill’s sponsor’s Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) tells us: “(Congress must) assert its...

ONCE UPON A TIME I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

Tony Bennett was 36 years old in 1962, when he recorded I Left My Heart In San Francisco.  Sadly, I doubt that Mr. Bennett, now 92 years of age, would recognize today’s version of the city that song celebrated. We’ve all heard about the human feces all over its streets, and the drug addicts seemingly everywhere. But, even having absorbed that knowledge, the latest information about...

THE COVINGTON LAWSUITS: HOW MANY AND HOW MUCH?

Remember Nick Sandmann?  He was the Covington Catholic High school student who, along with his classmates, was accused of being a racist towards a group of Black men, of intimidating an elderly Native American, and chanting “build that wall”, while wearing MAGA hats. Heck,  I’m surprised they didn’t wear hoods, robes and burn a cross in front of the Lincoln Memorial...

WHO SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT A HOWARD SCHULTZ PRESIDENTIAL RUN?

‎Should anyone be worried about former Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz, running for the presidency as an independent? Well, if you believe the latest poll conducted by politico.com, the answer is yes. Democrats should be worried.  Plenty worried. from Steven Shepard’s article at politico.com: While only 26 percent of voters who approve of Trump’s job performance as president said...

THE COLLUSION DELUSION LIMPS TOWARD CONCLUSION

I like Jonathan Turley. Mr. Turley, aside from being a Professor at George Washington University’s law school,  is a prolific political analyst/commentator. What I like about him is that, despite being a Democrat, his opinions and the conclusions he draws are not the product of partisan skew, but of honest thought.  In today’s world, that makes Mr. Turley a rarity – one we...

NORTHRUP (POLITICAL) DEATH WATCH

“He was like a chicken with his head chopped off. The chicken is dead. The only person that don’t know it is the chicken.” Those inelegant words were uttered by James Carville, the inelegant (but very savvy) Clinton confidant/political consultant. Carville was, at the time, talking about Republican Rick Santorum’s hopeless run for the 2012 presidential nomination. But, today, those...

BUT HE’S AN ANTI-SEMITIC NAZI SYMPATHIZER, RIGHT?

How many times have we heard it from Democrats?  Donald Trump is an anti-Semite.  And he loved those nazis down in Charlottesville, didn’t he? Funny thing though:  as Israel wends its way toward a national election, its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, had this huge billboard erected in downtown Tel Aviv: The translation?  “Netanyahu.  In another league.”, meaning...

STUPID, IMMORAL ISRAELIS

A wall?  To keep people you don’t want from entering your country?  Who ever heard of such a thing!! From an article at Agence France Presse (AFP): Israel said Sunday that work to strengthen its border with the Gaza Strip had entered a new phase, with construction starting on a massive new barrier along the frontier. “Over the weekend we began building the above-ground barrier along...
