LORI LIGHTFOOT’S EXPLANATION

This morning, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was a guest on MSNBC.  She was asked how the city was doing, after sustaining major damage (estimates run to $60 million, and might be higher) due to an orchestrated orgy of vandalism looting and general anarchy – all as the police largely stood by and watched. Here was her answer: “Look. I think we’re seeing the same challenges in Chicago...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from that renowned humanist, the sweet, tolerant favorite of Nancy Pelosi, Rep. rashida tlaib (D-MI). Here is tlaib’s reaction to the news that Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have normalized relations: “We won’t celebrate Netanyahu for not stealing land he already controls in exchange for a sweetheart business deal. “The heart of the issue...

A BIDEN VIDEO FOR YOUR VIEWING DISPLEASURE

How long has Joe Biden been plagiarizing/exaggerating/lying to our faces? Please click here and watch a video from the late 1980’s – it runs 4:52 – loaded with answers to that question. And when you’re through, please think about the ensuing 30+ years, and try to come up with a thing that Joe Biden has done for anyone. I’m not asking what he’s promised to do...

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S COVID-19 EXECUTIVE ORDERS: THE POLITICS

As you probably are aware: -Democrats demanded a roughly 3.5 trillion dollar “stimulus package” loaded with non-stimulus goodies. -President Trump said no, and proposed a $1 trillion dollar alternative – with a few non-stimulus goodies of his own, but nothing like what Democrats were pushing. -Democrats refused his offer and there was a stalemate…with congress about to...

WHY DO PARTS OF MINNEAPOLIS REMAIN RUBBLE?

It has been three months since the death of George Floyd.  And almost three months since the anarchists and “Black Lives Matter” radicals/extortionists laid waste to part of downtown Minneapolis. So why has it, for the most part, stayed that way? Here’s a large part of your answer, from Jeffrey Meitdrodt’s article for the Minneapolis Star Tribuine: In Minneapolis, on a...

PORTLAND – ANARCHY BACK IN FULL CONTROL

The federal agents are mostly gone, based on an agreement with Governor Kate Brown that Portland’s state police would protect federal property. Now the state police are gone too.  And here’s why, from Maxine Bernstein’s article at oregonlive.com: Oregon State Police on Thursday pulled out the approximately 100 troopers helping both federal officers and Portland police in...

HAVE OMAN AND BAHRAIN FOLLOWED THE UAE?

There are reports that Oman and Bahrain have followed the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) lead and are establishing diplomatic (and, presumably trade/tourism/etc.) relations with Israel. In my previous blog I noted that the UAE normalizing of relations was huge.  if Oman and Bahrain are truly taking the same path, it is utterly fantastic. Boy are we lucky that Joe Biden and Barack Obama made...

TRUMP TRIUMPH: THE ISRAEL/UAE TREATY:

In 1979, Israel and Egypt agreed to a historic peace deal.  For the ensuing 41 years the two countries have been at peace. In 1994, Israel and Jordan agreed to a historic peace deal.  For the ensuing 26 years the two countries have been at peace. And now, in 2020, we have this, excerpted from Steve Holland’s article for Reuters:  Israel and the United Arab Emirates reached a historic...

WEEKLY JOB CLAIMS: BELOW 1,000,000

At the beginning of the year, the idea that 963,000 new jobless claims in a month’s time was good news would have been unthinkable. But we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. And July’s 963,000 figure is the lowest – the first below 1,000,000 – in five months. So what does it mean to the presidential campaign? I have no doubt that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will...

KAMALA HARRIS AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

Did you know that, last year, Kamala Harris co-sponsored the “Equality act” – an amendment to 1964’s Civil Right act (which, it should be noted, passed with more Republican than Democrat votes) which would require public schools to add boys who identify as girls onto girls’ sports teams? You might or might not agree with this requirement (personally, I do not).  But...

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY/ANTI-SEMITE PARTNERSHIP

I can’t say the Democrat Party is an anti-semitic entity.  Yet. But I can say that, increasingly, it is partnering with anti-Semites, has plenty of them within the party, and is expeditiously heading in that direction. One look at the people who now hold positions of prominence in the party – ilhan omar and rashida tlaib immediately come to mind, but are far from the only ones...

THE “MODERATE” BIDEN/HARRIS TICKET

It was as if mainstream media had been given a script by the Democratic National Committee. Virtually every one of them checked in with the “news” that Joe Biden and his VP choice, Kamala Harris, provided a “moderate” alternative to Trump/Pence. The New York Times, not surprisingly, was right up front with this absolute baloney, referring to Harris as a “pragmatic...

DEMOCRATS AND THE CHICAGO LOOT-FEST

This past weekend, Chicago’s business/shopping district was the scene of mass rioting, looting and vandalism. The supposed reason was a rumor that a 15 year old had been shot and killed by police It never happened – and even if it did, what possible justification would it create to go on a looting spree? What did happen was that a 20 year old gang member named latrell allen –...

ARE THOSE MASKS?

Here is a picture of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris walking into the mostly-deserted gymnasium where Ms. Harris gave her first speech as Biden’s Vice Presidential selection. Maybe it’s just me, but I couldn’t help wondering whether they bought matching black masks, or they just cut a bra in half. You decide.
