THE SECOND DEBATE

First, an admission:  I did not watch this debate, I’ve only read other people’s takes on it. Last night was a very happy, celebratory one for my wife and me,with family; politics was not even on the radar. That said, from what I understand, if there was a big winner it was Kamala Harris.  She was poised, had crowd-pleasing answers (both canned and spontaneous) and, at one point...

JOE BIDEN’S (AND MEDIA’S SUDDEN CONCERN OVER DEAD ILLEGALS

Have you seen the heart-breaking picture of a man and his infant child lying dead in the water after unsuccessfully trying to illegally enter the United States? I don’t know how any decent human being could not be touched by this image. ‎ But as Democrats and their obedient media lapdogs politicize this into a condemnation of President Trump’s border policy, is it not fair to ask...

A FEW QUICK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STUDENT DEBT ISSUE

“I think it’s so funny a year ago I was waiting tables in a restaurant and it was literally easier for me to become the youngest woman in American history elected to Congress than it is pay off my student loan debt.” That quote comes to us from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the many (and growing) number of Democrats who are demanding that all student debt be forgiven – at a cost of...

THE LATEST BREXIT POLL

It has been three years since British voters told the government to get out of the European Union.  And, for three years, Prime Minister Theresa May and Parliament have managed to find ways not to accommodate those voters. With that in mind, I thought you might be interested in a just-published poll, by yougov.com, revisiting this issue and asking Britons how they feel about it. Here are the...

THE FIRST DEBATE: A FEW OBSERVATIONS

With ten participants, and two groupings of friendly moderators, there was a feast of entertainment during the debate last night.  And we found out a bunch of information – some of it predictable, some of it not. Entertainment-wise, the high point was when Savannah Guthrie and José Díaz-Balart ended their stints as moderators, replaced by Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow.  Someone forgot to...

THE END OF BUTTIGIEG?

Is Peter Buttigieg finished as a Democrat Presidential candidate? Or, on a more immediate note, is he finished as Mayor of South Bend, Indiana? Before answering, please read the opening paragraph of Jazz Shaw’s blog at hotair.com: Following one shooting by the police and multiple shots fired at the police in South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is facing a full-blown political...

THE ERIC TRUMP SPITTING INCIDENT: WHY IT MATTERS

If you watch/read mainstream media, you probably do not know this… …but, on Tuesday, while President Trump’s son, Eric, was at Chicago’s Aviary Cocktail Bar, a female employee decided it would be a great idea to walk up and spit in his face. The good news is that Trump travels with secret service, who immediately cuffed her and put her into custody. The bad news is that...

TWO SALIENT TWEETS FROM VICE PRESIDENT PENCE

Mike Pence is Vice President of the United States. You are forgiven if you’ve forgotten about him, because, with Donald Trump running the show, he is overshadowed to the point of virtual anonymity. That said, however, Mr. Pence has just put up two very salient tweets about our southern border which are well worth reading and thinking about. Here they are: Vice President Mike...

THE CONSEQUENCES OF MUELLER TESTIFYING: A REPRINT OF MY JUNE 6TH BLOG

Following is a blog I wrote on June 6th – when I, apparently mistakenly, gave at least some credit for smarts to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who chairs the House Judiciary Committee. GO AHEAD AND TESTIFY.  YOU’LL BE DOING TRUMP A FAVOR 2019-06-06 BY KEN BERWITZ  “Go ahead and shoot. You’ll be doing me a favor.”  That classic line was spoken by Rick (Humphrey Bogart)...

Did nadler and schiff really announce robert mueller will testify before Congress next month????

Are they nuts??????? What do they think is going to happen when Republicans, for the first time, get to grill mueller on issues like why he ignored Hillary Clinton’s destruction of her emails, why the Steele dossier was used to get the FISA warrant,  why the investigation wasn’t shut down the minute he found out the Steele dossier was unverified,  why he put together an all-Democrat...

E. JEAN CARROLL’S 15TH MINUTE OF “RAPE” FAME

E. Jean Carroll was a guest on Anderson Cooper’s CNN show last night. Since she is a Trump accuser – in her case, the claim that he somehow managed to walk into a woman’s dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City and rape her without anyone hearing/seeing (a claim anyone who has been to Bergdorf’s women’s dressing rooms has to know is beyond ludicrous)...

HOLDING UP CRISIS LEGISLATION FOR THE BORDER NON-CRISIS

The above title may seem a bit strange…ok, a lot strange.  But it is precisely what the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is doing. Read the beginning of Cristina Marcos and Mike Lillis’s article at thehill.com, and see for yourself: House Democratic leaders scrambled Monday night to rally support for their border funding bill amid a liberal outcry over the Trump...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).  It was made in the form of a tweet, and concerns President Trump’s actions after Iran shot down one of our unmanned drones in the middle east: “Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran. Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then...

THE MEXICAN DEAL (THAT DEMOCRATS TOLD US WAS “NOTHING NEW”)
