JULIA PIERSON “RESIGNS”

Julia Pierson is now the former Director of the Secret Service. On paper, she has resigned. My guess (and it\’s only a guess)?  She was told she had resigned.  Actual resignation unnecessary. ====================================================== NOTE:  I mentioned to my wife that this “resignation” probably was like that scene in The Godfather when Michael...

LAURIE GARRETT? MEET LAURIE GARRETT

MSNBC the steps that must be taken to prevent ebola from spreading in the United States. Here is part of what she had to say about ebola on Melissa Harris-Perry\’s MSNBC show just two months ago (but use the link I\’ve provided...

A TEST TO SEE HOW DUMB KANSAS VOTERS ARE

Greg Orman is the “independent” candidate to unseat Republican Pat Roberts and become Kansas\’s new U. S. Senator. He has just launched a new TV ad, which you can see by clicking here.  Part of its dialogue is as follows:  “Ifyou listen to Pat Roberts and his Washington buddies, they\’ll tellyou that President Obama and Harry Reid are the reason...

AS THE BOOTLESS “COALITION” BOMBS….

You can\’t say the bombing of ISIS targets has had no success.  It has proven two facts, beyond the shadow of a doubt, to anyone who did not know them already: 1) when you bomb an enemy with no air force you can hit anything you want at any time you want to hit it, but  2) when an enemy has boots on the ground and you don\’t, all the bombing in the world will...

WHY IS JULIA PIERSON STILL DIRECTOR OF THE SECRET SERVICE?

Julia Pierson is the person in charge of a secret service that allowed two different people who had no business anywhere near the White House to get inside – not a few feet beyond the fence, not on the lawn, but IN THE WHITE HOUSE.  One of them ran through the green room, among other places, before being stopped.  Another actually rode in an elevator with the President. I am no...

BILLY SAMPLE – ONE LAST BLOG

As regular readers may recall, about two months ago I blogged about being “unfriended” on facebook by former Major League baseball player, then announcer, now independent movie producer Billy Sample. You would need a pretty good memory to do so, because I never mentioned him again afterwards.  Losing a facebook friend is not exactly a seminal experience in my life.  The...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Marie Harf, the Obama spokesperson whose most recognizable quality is that she talks to us with a sing-song quality reminiscent of a 10th grader reciting her oral mid-term exam. Here is how she tried to explain away President Obama\’s gross negligence regarding the intelligence information he ignored for all this time, and his lamer-than-lame...

GEORGE CLOONEY\’S WEDDING

It\’s bad enough that George Clooney married an Israel-hater from an Israel-hating family. But did he have to spend the equivalent of $13,000,000 to do it? From Nick Squires\’ article at London\’s Daily Telegraph: GeorgeClooney\’s four-day wedding celebrations in Venice, which involvedpool-side cocktail parties, dinners in five-star hotels and a lavishwedding reception on...

GAY VENGEANCE

Anyone who reads this blog knows that I am staunchly in favor of full gay rights, including marriage.   To me, it is a simple issue of personal freedom – along with the fact that no one\’s sexual orientation is anyone\’s business but their own. That said, however, the following story absolutely disgusts me.  Here it is, via excerpts from Kelsey Harkness\’s...

PAT ROBERTS/GREG ORMAN (CONT.)

A week and a half has passed since I wrote that “I do not bet on political campaigns.  But if I did, I would lay odds on Mr. Roberts returning to the senate for a fourth term.” At that time, two relatively fresh polls had Roberts\’ competition, the Democrat-running-as-an-independent Greg Orman, up by 6% (Fox) and 5% (Rasmussen) respectively….which looked good for...
