THE REAL REASON PRESIDENT OBAMA SUDDENLY “HAS A STRATEGY”

Why did President Obama reverse 5 1/2 years of doing next to nothing to stop the spread of radical Islamic terrorist groups, and suddenly pretend, last night,that he is The Ultimate Warrior? Maybe this will help your understanding. Excerpted from Peter Sullivan\’s piece at thehill.com: Thepublic thinks Republicans will do a better job keeping the U.S. safeby a wider margin than at any...

AN AWFUL ANNIVERSARY

Today is the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, in a Pennsylvania field, and at the Pentagon – which killed almost 3,000 of us, destroyed the lives of many thousands more, and should have changed the way we view radical Islam forever. It is scary that, for some, it apparently has not;  including one head of state who doggedly, blindly refuses to make...

THE PRESIDENT\’S SPEECH

President Obama, at the beginning of his address, just told me that ISIL (most people call it ISIS) has nothing to do with Islam.  He\’s lost me already. UPDATE:  Mr. Obama – who pulled us out of Iraq in a way that left the country in collapse – just took credit for changing its head of state. UPDATE:  Now he is bragging about sending 470 non-combatant...

YEMEN? SOMALIA? WHAT????!!!!

President Obama has not yet made tonight\’s foreign policy address.  But the White House has released this excerpt. Before reading it, please be aware that, although I don\’t think it is meant as satire, I can\’t be 100% sure: “ButI want the American people to understand how this effort will bedifferent from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not...

CONGRATULATIONS TO GOVERNOR CUOMO

Congratulations to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for winning his primary over an opponent, Zephyr Teachout who, despite the fact that almost nobody ever heard of her, managed to get something like 40% of the vote anyway. My congratulations, by the way, are not sarcastic.  They are serious.  That is because the reason Cuomo did so poorly against Ms. Teachout is that she is a...

MICHAEL BROWN\’S RECORDS

Though it has hit a glitch (which will be described further on), the quest to open Michael Brown\’s records continues.  And the Professionally Oppressed crowd continues to protest that it is not simply taken on good faith that Michael Brown was a choir boy – and that it is “character assassination” to find out whether...

BILL CASSIDY\’S PLANTATION REMARK

I just took a look at crooksandliars.com, a hardest-of-hard left web site I have read for years.  And one of its featured articles, written by someone calling him/herself “Vegasjessie”, is skewering Bill Cassidy, the Louisiana Republican candidate who is challenging incumbent Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu this year. According to Vegasjessie, “The candidate...

THE NEW NBC/WALL ST. JOURNAL POLL

The latest NBC/Wall St. Journal poll has just been released.  And there is good news for Democrats. Unfortunately for them, however, the good news is that, while horrible, it is a tiny bit less cataclysmic than the CNN/ORC poll which was released yesterday. A few key findings: -President Obama\’s job ratings – 40% approve, 54% disapprove, same as last...

MEDIA BIAS IN ACTION

Why do I blog as much about media bias as I do? Because we keep getting “neutral” media reporting like this first sentence from an Associated Press “report” about a public meeting being held in Ferguson, Missouri: Effortsby city leaders in the St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black18-year-old was fatally shot by a white police officer to repair thelocal...

THE NEW CNN/ORC POLL:

You\’ve got to hand it to CNN.  It works hard to protect Democrats. A new CNN/ORC poll was released today. Its findings are absolutely devastating to Democrats.  So what headline does CNN put up?  CNN/ORC poll: Most think Congress is worst in their lifetime That\’s it? That\’s the big-time information of this poll? Uh…..no. Let me give you some...

1,000,000 CONGRATULATIONS TO CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

My congratulations to the brilliant columnist, commentator and thinker, Charles Krauthammer, on his book, “Things That Matter”, reaching the 1,000,000 sales mark. And congratulations again, on managing to do this with a tiny fraction of the publicity given to Media Darling Hillary Clinton\’s “Hard Choices” – which won\’t come remotely close to...

FIVE DU-TONES & ONE OBAMA

In 1963, The Five Du-Tones had a big hit with the song “Shake A Tail Feather”.  If you were around then, you might still remember it. It is a lot less likely that you remember the flip side of that hit, titled “Divorce Court”.  But today, in the age of Barack Obama, there is an interesting parallel with its lyrics and President Obama\’s sudden...

PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S LATEST ATTACKER

Even the most forgiving judge of Barack Obama, one willing to overlook his preference for chipping onto the sunlit greens of Martha\’s Vineyard rather than brooding in the fluorescent glare of the Situation Room, must admit that the President has sometimes been a thick-tongued steward of his own foreign policy. How did the author of “A More Perfect Union” become the author of...

RAY RICE AND SHANEEN ALLEN

Why has Ray Rice\’s knockout punch to Janay Palmer – his then-girlfriend-now-wife – and the termination of his contract with the National Football League\’s Baltimore Ravens (at least for the moment), led the news for two days? I\’m sure most of you, by now, have seen the video of Rice decking Palmer in the elevator of a New Jersey casino, then dragging her...

OBAMA & GOLFING: YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP

Yesterday, on Meet The Press, President Obama expressed second thoughts – not an apology or regrets, mind you, but second thoughts, about the propriety of going golfing immediately after speaking, for all of three minutes, about the ISIS beheading of US journalist James Foley. His exact words, as reported at USA Today: “There\’sno doubt that – after having talked to the...
