THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Woman-child Marie Harf, the sing-song, cringeworthy little Obama chirper who poses as a State Department spokesperson. Less than a week ago the head of Iran\’s Revolutionary Guard publicly stated that “erasing Israel off the map is non-negotiable”.  At that point Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel\’s Prime Minister, asked that...

BASKETBALL AND RACE

I just read a very interesting quote from former Wisconsin University basketball player Jordan Taylor, who was needled by a teammate over why Wisconsin would not beat Duke in the NCAA championship game last night (Wisconsin lost to Duke, 68-63): “He was just saying we\’ve got too many white guys.  I still get kind of poked at, teased about it, because it always seems...

THE REAL OBAMA ECONOMY

Our economy is stinko.  And most people know it – even some of the ones who, for various reasons, feel compelled to protect and defend Barack Obama by pretending otherwise. Investors Business Daily is not one of that group – and it has published an excellent, plain-spoken editorial explaining why. Please read it all by clicking here.  But, for now, read this excerpt and...

HILLARY\’S CANDIDACY – AND HER BENEFACTORS

Now that it appears a near certainty that Hillary Clinton will be running for President in 2016 (something I thought of as no more than a 50/50 proposition until the last few weeks), what part of her past will the media spotlight shine on? Will it be her accomplishments in public life – most recently as a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State?  Don\’t bet on it, because there...

TWO NOTABLE ARTICLES AT ISRAELNATIONALNEWS.COM

Here are the first few paragraphs of two notable articles from israelnationalnews.com: The first is from columnist, and best-selling author Jack Engelhard: So what did you expect? The “framework” to delay (not to stop) Iran\’s nuclear program is a deal that renders us all sitting ducks to the whims of the ayatollahs. For this we can thank the Democrats who spent months...

WHAT JORDAN DOESN\’T LOSE BY PARTNERING WITH ISRAEL

For years, I have been writing a series of blogs titled “What We Lose If We Lose Israel”.  The most recent of them, written just yesterday, talked about the success Israel has had with desalinizing water, and what a benefit it would be to any territory or country which might utilize it. And now, today, I see this – excerpted from an article in the International Business...

AS OBAMA AND KERRY FANTASIZE A PEACEFUL IRAN…

This excerpt from today\’s article by Con Coughlin of the London Daily Telegraph tells the tale: Iran has sent Hamas\’s military wing tens of millions of dollars to help it rebuild the network of tunnels in Gaza destroyed by Israel\’s invasion last summer, intelligence sources have told The Sunday Telegraph. It is also funding new missile supplies to replenish stocks used to...

ERNEST MONIZ: OBAMA DELUSIONARY

Ernest Moniz is the President Obama-appointed Secretary of Energy.  He looks exactly what he is – an academic desperately trying to relive his 60\’s look, with a delusionary view of the world. Here is what he looks like…. …and here is his quote on the Iran “deal” – keeping in mind that Iran has broken just about every part of every deal they...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us, as it so often does, from President Barack Obama. This is what he said to allay Israel\’s fears that he is giving the store away to Iran in a “deal” that does not prevent it from continuing to move towards nuclear weaponry: “What we will be doing, even as we enter into this deal, is sending a very clear message to the Iranians and to...

WHAT WE LOSE IF WE LOSE ISRAEL (CONT.)

It has been a while since I posted an installment of this series.  But, given the disdain – even hatred – President Obama has shown for Israel, and his willingness to sign off on Iran having the nuclear capability to vaporize it, I thought I would put up another reminder. Excerpted from Joel Greenberg\’s article at mcclatchydc.com: Israel has gone through one of the driest...

DIVERSIONARY MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

From David Mack\’s article at buzzfeed.com: The governors of Connecticut, New York, and Washington on Saturday lifted bans on taxpayer-funded travel between their states and Indiana, two days after Gov. Mike Pence signed an amended religious freedom bill into law. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had ordered bans on state-funded travel to Indiana on Monday...

GREAT DAY WITH GRANDCHILDREN

What a great day we are having! Currently at Dorbrook Park in Colts Neck, New Jersey, and soon to be at the great standby of Monmouth County, Delicious Orchards, where, if they are open on Easter Sunday, we will load up on goodies.  There is nothing like spending a day with children and grandchildren, and we are doing both. ===================== UPDATE:  Not all surprisingly...

EASTER SUNDAY…AND POST-SEDER MORNING

Terrific seder yesterday.  And, best of all, our children and grandchildren stayed over.  Our grandson expropriated the computer (he\’ll do it again any time now:  at 8 years old he knows more about this stuff than I ever will, and has read enough about Steve Jobs that I doubt Jobs\’ mother knew more about her son than he does).  Our 5 year old...
