FOR ALL THE “A RECESSION IS IMMINENT” PUNDITS

Apart from overall unemployment hitting a 50 year low, Black unemployment hitting an all-time low, Latino unemployment hitting an all-time low, Women’s unemployment hitting an all-time low, wages rising at the highest rate in 20 years and roughly one trillion dollars coming back into the domestic economy due to lower taxes and fewer regulations… …the Dow Jones finished the year...

JUDGE MCSPADDEN’S RECUSAL

Interesting turn of events in that bitter paternity lawsuit between Joe Biden’s ne’er-do-well son hunter, and Lunden Alexis Roberts, the stripper he impregnated, then denied the baby was his…until a paternity test proved he was lying. All of a sudden Circuit Judge Don McSpadden, who has had no problem presiding over the child custody lawsuit until today, has decided to recuse...

TRUMP’S RESPONSE TO THE IRAQ EMBASSY ATTACK

President Trump has now reacted to the attack on our embassy in Iraq: “Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible.” “In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so...

HOW DOES THE MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ITSELF A NEWSPAPER?

I realize that the title of this blog is especially provocative.  But it is eminently deserved. Please click here to read Paul Mirengoff’s article and you will understand why it is there…and why, if you care at all about journalistic integrity, it will make you want to throw up. Meanwhile, here are excerpts – more than I would usually put up (sorry, Paul), but only a fraction...

CAN ELIZABETH WARREN REGAIN HER MOJO?

Remember when Senator Elizabeth Warren was surging?  When it seemed as though she was becoming the inevitable Democrat presidential candidate? Well, in keeping with the season, let’s just say those were the days of auld lang syne. The Iowa caucuses are looming.  In October, the state polls showed Ms. Warren leading the pack.  But now, the most recent polls show Ms. Warren running...

IN CASE YOU THINK IT’S JUST JEWS

Here is another example of life in today’s New York City under comrade De Blasio. First watch this video of a street thug sucker-punching a New York City police officer… …and then be aware that the street thug who did this was released with no bail. That’s right.  This is not a satire blog, or a test to see if you’re paying attention.  It actually happened...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Let’s end the year with one final quote from Joe Biden – who seems to be more and more detatched from reality by the day. Yesterday, at a rally in Exeter, New Hampshire, Biden was actually asked if he would consider a Republican as his running mate. Mr. Biden’s answer: “The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now.”  (Then, after the crowed reacts) “No...

A THOUGHT FOR THE NEW YEAR

I think I may have posted this once, some years ago.  But the thought it expresses is timeless.  So, whether for the first or second time, I would like to pass it along now. ================================ The following philosophy has often been attributed to “Peanuts” creater Charles M. Schulz. That attribution is not correct; Mr. Schulz is not the author. But regardless of who...

GUEST EDITORIAL: THE NEW YORK POST ON ANTI-SEMITISM IN NEW YORK CITY

I am not in the habit of putting up other peoples’ material in its entirety.  My deal is to excerpt from their work and provide a link for readers to see the rest. But I’m making an exception here – because a) the material is so compelling that I want it all to be in front of you, and b) because, as regular readers will recognize, virtually every point in the material is a...

THE IRAQ EMBASSY SIEGE

There is a siege in progress at the United States embassy in Iraq. Non-military personnel have been evacuated, and only a complement of U.S. soldiers is on the premises.  I hope they get through this safely. The reason for the siege?  According to Ross Ibbetson’s picture – laden article at London’s Daily Mail: It comes after US fighter jets decimated three locations in Iraq on...

A RETRACTION AND AN APOLOGY

This morning I wrote a condemnatory blog about a McDonald’s unit in Kansas  Where a police officer received a cup of coffee with the words “fucking pig” written on the receipt. I registered my outrage at the fact, or so I thought, that the offending employee wasn’t fired on the spot.  I  also wished that the McDonald’s unit paid a heavy price for not reacting...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Eric Swallwell, the smug, arrogant, safe-district Representative from California, whose wildly overinflated ego caused him to run for president earlier this year…and who dropped out after getting, as I recall, a maximum of 1% in any poll. This is what Swallwell tweeted about the violent anti-Semitic attacks which have taken place in New York over the...

ROOTING FOR JOHN LEWIS

John Lewis, 79 years old and in his 17th term representing Georgia’s 5th district – after a genuinely iconic career as a front-line fighter for civil rights – announced today that he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer. What terrible, sad news. Political differences aside (they shouldn’t mean a thing here), I am rooting very hard for Rep. Lewis to wage a successful fight against...

THE CHANUKAH ATTACK, AND FAKE NEWS

This morning I watched a “news” report about grafton thomas, the “man” who invaded the home of a Rabbi in Monsey, New York and slashed a half dozen orthodox Jews before being subdued. The report assured me that thomas was mentally challenged, thus anti-Semitism was not the reason for his action. To me, that was fraudulent on its face.  Classic fake news. A mentally...
