HIATUS

Note to my readers – whose interest in what I have to say, whether positive or negative, has been much appreciated. I am now going on hiatus. For at least the short term, possibly longer, I will no longer be blogging. This is an entirely personal decision that involves a personal matter (not a negative one, I’m happy to say).  It has nothing to do with anything I have written and is...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from the always-political-and-nothing-else, increasingly bizarre Speaker Of The House, Nancy Pelosi. Here is her latest – an “explanation of why angry Trump supporters gathered in Washington D.C.: “It has been an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country led by this president, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness...

KRISTIN CLARKE: THE RACIST ANTI-SEMITE WHO WILL LEAD THE CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION

kristen clarke has been selected by Joe Biden (or whomever is pulling his strings) to Head the Justice Department’s Civil Right’s Division. Would it be too much to ask that someone who heads a Civil Rights entity be capable of seeing all races/religions/genders in equal terms? Apparently, in this case it is. From Tucker Carlson’s imperative – and appalling – article...

THE INCURSION TIMELINE

NPR has put together a very useful timeline of what happened last Wednesday.  Aside from the generic value of knowing what happened when, it also gives considerable evidence for both sides – pro Trump and anti Trump – to make their case about the President’s involvement and responsibility level. I’ve provided the link.  You can provide your version of the story it...

ANOTHER ANDREW CUOMO DISASTER

Didn’t Governor Andrew Cuomo cause enough elderly, sick New Yorkers to die in nursing homes?  Do New Yorkers also have to die because he made the restrictions on vaccine usage so ridiculously limiting that some of it sat unused until it had to be tossed in the garbage? From Dana Rubenstein’s article in the (usually pro-Cuomo) New York Times, we have this: Across New York State...

A LITTLE WISDOM (OK, VERY LITTLE)

It’s getting way too serious in here.  So, apropos of nothing political, here is a sampling of the aphorisms about old people that my sister just sent me: My goal for 2020 was to lose 10 pounds. Only have 14 to go. Ate salad for dinner. Mostly croutons and tomatoes. Really just one big round crouton covered with tomato sauce, and cheese. FINE, it was a pizza…. OK, I ate a pizza...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from…. ….well, tell you what:  first I will show you the quote so that you can react to it and draw your own conclusions.  Then I’ll tell you who said it: And yet the turmoil of recent weeks reminds us that the path to democracy does not end with the casting of a ballot. Nelson Mandela once said: “to be free is not merely to cast off...

KAMALA HARRIS’ MAGAZINE COVER COMPLAINT

Kamala Harris is upset. It seems the incoming Vice President of the United States is slated to be on cover of February’s Vogue magazine, and she does not like the picture that was selected for this honor. From Darlene Superville’s article for the Associated Press, via the Washington Times, we find that… …”her team says there’s a problem: The shot of the country’s...

THERE ARE 9 DAYS LEFT TO THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY…

…and Nancy Pelosi, who devoted the last two years as Speaker of the House to attacking President Trump and little else… …intends to spend them trying to either oust him via the 25th Amendment (which would be a virtual impossibility) or impeach and convict him (the impeachment is possible, but the conviction is not, thus rendering the exercise 100% political and 0%...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

This latest installment of the Real Racism series comes to us from Joe Biden, the man who, next week, will be President of the United States. Mr. Biden has pledged to help small businesses.  But his key focus is not on businesses most in need.  His key focus is on businesses that are not owned by White males.  If your skin color happens to be White and you happen to have male plumbing, you are...

THE END OF PARLER/THE END OF FREE SPEECH?

From Bruce Haring’s article at deadline.com, we have this piece of beyond-scary news: Parler CEO John Matze said today that his company has been dropped by virtually all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreements with the social media service. “Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same...

AN HONEST LEFTIST LIBERAL SPEAKS

No one can deny writer/reporter/muckraker Glenn Greenwald’s leftward and liberal (I distinguish between the two) credentials….at least not until recently. But as someone committed to free speech, he is appalled by the censorship openly being exercised by a cadre of hard-left social media giants.  And he has the guts to risk their wrath by saying so. Here in three tweets – the...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from our next Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris. As riots – real ones, with massive violence and destruction – raged in cities throughout the country, Harris said: “Everyone beware. They’re not gonna stop before election day in November, and they’re not gonna stop after election day … They’re not gonna let up, and...

ARE THE SOCIAL MEDIA GIANTS CREATING THEIR OWN COMPETITION?

Actions have consequences. And the blatant attempts to censor free speech currently being utilized by twitter, facebook, etc. seems to be proving that point. From  Allum Bohhari’s article at breitbart.com, we have this: Gab.com, the free speech friendly social network, says traffic has increased by more than 750 percent in the past few days, following the blacklisting of President Donald...

SOCIAL MEDIA CENSORSHIP (CONT.)

Here is the latest attempt by left wing social media giants to censor what you can see, and what you can say. It is in the form of a message from John Matze, CEO of Parler, which has developed into a major alternative source for conservatives, whose comments, references to articles, and exchanges between each other are systematically being censored by venues like twitter, facebook, google, and...
