WEINSTEIN’S CHEST PAINS

Amazing isn’t it? First, upon being forced to go to trial on rape charges, harvey weinstein suddenly acquires the need to use a walker. Then, upon being convicted of rape and sentenced to jail for an indeterminate number of years, harvey weinstein suddenly develops chest pains that get him into a hospital instead of a prison cell. We can only wonder what other sudden, unexpected (or are...

THE OTHER SEVEN

Last night there was a memorial service for NBA great Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna at the Los Angeles Staples Center. It was sold out. There was no memorial last night, however, for the other seven people who died in the plane crash that took Mr. Bryant and his daughter’s lives.  Maybe they were mentioned, maybe they weren’t; I was not there to know. But, with the knowledge...

DID JOE BIDEN ATTEND A SEANCE?

I have to ask the above question, because, last night, at an event in South Carolina, Mr. Biden informed his audience that he worked with China’s Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accords. The problem?  The Paris accords were signed in 2016…but Deng Xiaoping died in 1997. Want to  see/hear the video?  Click here. You will be treated to this latest “gaffe”, along with...

CALIFRAUDIA?

In case you didn’t think the ability of illegal aliens to vote in California (get a driver’s license, then register) made its elections fraudulent enough, we have this, from Brooks Jarosz’s article for KTVU-TV (the Fox affiliate in San Francisco): There is a loophole that potentially allows California voters to cast two ballots and some local elections officials say that they...

BERNIE SANDERS, CUBA AND CHINA

Senator, and current front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders seems to have an affinity for finding good in communist countries (he and his wife honeymooned in the Soviet Union). In that connection, he has been criticized for talking up Fidel Castro’s Cuba because Castro raised the population’s literacy level. Is the criticism justified? Before you answer...

HILLARY CLINTON: HER NON-ENDORSEMENT AND HER WET DREAM

First, Hillary Clinton’s non-endorsement, from Kit Holden’s article for Agence France Presse (AFP), we have this from Hillary Clinton, speaking at the Berlin Film Festival:  Hillary Clinton on Monday denounced President Donald Trump as a “danger to democracy” and defended her scathing comments about former rival and Democratic primary frontrunner Bernie Sanders. Clinton...

THE WEINSTEIN VERDICT

Harvey Weinstein was convicted today of two counts:  a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree.  With these charges, the law says Weinstein must serve at least 5 years, and up to 25 years, in jail. We’ll soon find out if the law applies to Weinstein. Oh, and then there are those other charges out in California. I think it is a fair bet that harvey weinstein...

BERNIE SANDERS ON CASTRO’S CUBA AND AIPAC

Bernie Sanders on 60 minutes, discussing Castro’s Cuba: “We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Bernie Sanders tweeting on why he will not...

DEFENDING CHRIS MATTHEWS

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I am not a fan of Chris Matthews.  I consider him a formerly worthwhile writer/commentator whose hatred of Republicans in general and President Trump in particular frequently sends him off the deep end.  In fact, I have sometimes taken to calling him “Chrazy Chris”. But , on this one, I have to come to his defense. Chris Matthews has been accused...

AMY BERMAN JACKSON: GOING NOWHERE

To the surprise of no one who follows the exploits of D.C. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, she has – angrily – rejected a defense request that she recuse herself from the Roger Stone case, leaving a different judge to rule on whether there will be a re-trial. The reason for the re-trial request?  Judge Amy Berman Jackson allowed a jury foreperson who had a rich history of...

THE GRENELL PRECEDENT

This week, President Trump appointed Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence.  Also, he is our current Ambassador to Germany. Richard Grenell is openly gay.  Has been for a good many years. This is the highest-ranking federal appointment of an openly gay person in United States history. How much credit has President Trump received from political and social activists...

COMING CLEAN ON RUSSIA MEDDLING

Yep, they did it again. For days we have been inundated with media telling us there is credible information Russia is meddling in the 2020 election, and – again – are doing so on behalf of Donald Trump. The fact that a two-plus year, almost $40 million dollar “investigation”, conducted by a Democrats-only, no-Republicans staff put together by Robert Mueller, found no...

SOTOMAYOR’S COMPLAINT

Am I getting this right?  Is Justice Sonia Sotomayor complaining – bitterly – that Trump appointed Supreme Court Justices are more likely to rule in ways supportive of Mr. Trump’s positions than non-Trump justices – like her, for example? OF COURSE judges appointed by President Trump are more likely to rule his way?  Why do you think he appointed them? Tell us, Justice...

ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) HISTORY: BALTIMORE-STYLE

As readers of this blog certainly know, the school system in Baltimore is an absolute disaster.  One-third of all Baltimore high schools (13 out of 39 do not have even one student proficient in math.  Not one.  And 90% of Black boys in Baltimore high schools are not reading at grade level. So what are they teaching in those high schools? Well, here’s a taste for you, excerpted from...

PILLOWS AND DEER CARCASS UPDATE

The couch pillow that has sat on the left shoulder of Rte.34/9 South, a few hundred feet before the Penyak sign, is still there.  We’re well over four months and no one has picked it up yet. And the deer carcass – just bones and a little skin now – which has sat on the grass along the Freehold Raceway Mall’s exit to Rte 537 (across from the water tower) for months is...
