TWO NEWS REPORTS ABOUT THE SAME TOWN HALL MEETING

With the previous blog in mind, I want to show you (as if you didn\’t already know) just how important it is that we have a free press;  just how much it can affect what we “know” about the news. Yesterday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held a town hall meeting – his first since the “bridgegate” scandal rocked his political world and gave a...

A BONE-CHILLING ASSAULT ON OUR FREEDOM

Of all the excesses this administration is guilty of – all the “executive orders” bypassing congress on major legislation (no, it is not the same as what other administrations have done, not even close), all the actions of an imperial presidency (which used to enrage media until the President was a Democrat named Barack Obama), this is far and away the most...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from an unlikely source – the execrable bill maher. It turns out that MSNBC\’s obsession with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is so over the top that even Maher can\’t stand it any more: “Whateverwe had is not working any more. You\’re obviously interested inanother man: Chris Christie. You\’re obsessed with him. So I...

OBAMACARNAGE: MORE ON THE HOSPITAL CLOSINGS

Earlier today I posted a blog which excerpted Sarah Hurtubise\’s article at dailycaller.com, in which she contends that ObamaCare is responsible for hospital closings in Georgie (and, presumably other states as well).  I thought the article made lots of sense.  But, in fairness, there is another side which also makes sense.  So, in the interests of fairness, I urge you...

THE INTELLIGENCE OF ERIC CANTOR\’S DEMOCRAT OPPONENT

No need to blog very much here. I\’ll let Mike Dickinson – the Democrat seeking to unseat Eric Cantor in Virgina –  speak for himself. Here is a sampling of his tweets from four days ago (you can see a lot more of Dickinson\’s similarly, er, intelligent tweets by clicking here): DickinsonForCongress@VoteMike2014 Wow haha. We stirred the pot by saying Fox News...

OBAMACARNAGE: SAN FRANCISCO LEARNS THE HARD WAY

The San Francisco Bay Area.  Home of leftist congresspeople like Nancy Pelosi, Lynn Woolsey, Jackie Speier, etc., who could not wait to vote for ObamaCare. Well, here a few excerpts from a story on the web site of KPIX (CBS News – San Francisco) which, I have no doubt, they would like to forget about — but maybe some of the people they represent...

OBAMACARNAGE: NOW THE HOSPITAL CLOSINGS

Well, look at the bright side:  at least President Obama didn\’t say “If you like your hospital you can keep your hospital.  Period.” Now, as the unworkable monstrosity called ObamaCare progresses (or maybe regresses is a more appropriate word), we have this, excerpted from Sarah Hurtubise\’s article at dailycaller.com: Thefourth Georgia hospital in two...

ISRAEL: THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION\’S LATEST DEMAND

Here is the latest, as excerpted from today\’s article in the Jerusalem Post: Aidesto US Secretary of State John Kerry will request that the Israeligovernment freeze all construction in settlements outside of thelarge blocs of communities that...

IS HILLARY CLINTON\’S PAST FAIR GAME IN A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN?

Let\’s start with the end of the blog.  Yes, of course it is. The issue is not whether Hillary Clinton\’s past is fair game.  The issue is what parts of her past are most and least relevant, and what parts would be most and least effective if used against her in a political campaign. Days ago, I wrote a blog suggesting that it would be a major mistake for Republicans to...
