THE ISIS FAUXALITION

How I wish this were otherwise…. ….but evidence continues to mount that President Obama\’s “broad coalition” to fight ISIS is, in actuality, a fauxalition – i.e. a phony coalition, concocted to fool the public into thinking a President who has little or no juice with the international community is on top of things. Excerpted from an article at the Lebanese...

YOU DON\’T HAVE TO BE A CHOCOLATE LOVER….

Levy & Sons, a Brooklyn bakery best known for its rye bread, had an advertising campaign consisting of posters – mostly in subway stations as I recall – in which people of obviously different ethnicities were enjoying delicious looking sandwiches….with the words “You don\’t have to be Jewish to Love Levy\’s real...

PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S STEALTH COALITION

When President Bush pulled together a coalition of dozens of countries for his invasion of Iraq, did media expect to hear the names of those countries and what each would be doing? How do  you suppose media would have reacted if President Bush\’s Ambassador to the United Nations, sent out to do the Sunday morning shows, would or could not name even one of the countries, let alone what...

WEGMAN\’S AND HOGWARTS

Apropos of nothing political…. I really like Wegman\’s.  It\’s a terrific store. But sometimes I think it has a deal with the same people who built the stairs at Hogwarts.  Because every #&$%ing time you walk in there things have been rearranged, and what used to be right here, is somewhere else that you don\’t know about and have to figure out. I have no...

THE FERGUSON FALLOUT (CONT.)

On August 9th, Michael Brown was shot and killed by officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. As of now, we have conflicting eyewitness accounts of what happened at that time, and an investigation is ongoing – both local, state and federal (I\’m still trying to figure out what possible reason 40 FBI agents – not 1 or 2, but 40 – were assigned to this case, and how...

OUR OPEN BORDER POLICY & TUBERCULOSIS

Suppose I told you that 700 infants in the border town of El Paso, Texas, which has been “stocked” with illegal aliens over the past two years, have been exposed to tuberculosis – a horrible disease which was – until recently – virtually eradicated in the United States, but which is no stranger at all to parts of Central America – including Guatemala...

BOOTS ON THE GROUND: WHY THERE?

The unprecedented response will include the deployment of 3,000 U.S. military forces and...

WHY WE MUST FIGHT RADICAL ISLAM (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz With all the attention being paid to ISIS (and all of it fully justified), it is good to remind ourselves of what kind of world we would live in if these lunatics ever took over. And the best way to do so is to note what kind of a world it is where they have taken over. Like Iran, for example. Excerpted from an article at billboard.com: Adefense lawyer in Iran says six young Iranian...

25 REALLY LOUSY PREDICTIONS

Every day we hear predictions from various “pundits” of various disciplines – most often the political variety these days.  And, more often than not, they dispense their wit and wisdom with an air that suggests there is no doubt whatsoever about the veracity of their issue – that they could not possibly be wrong.  It\’s enough to give a regular...

THE CHAD TAYLOR DEBACLE (CONT.)

There\’s news on the Kansas Senatorial front. The Kansas Supreme Court, which is “dominated by democratic appointees” (so says the New York Times) has voted that Chad Taylor, the Democrat primary winner, thus Senate candidate, can withdraw from the race – even though his withdrawal letter does not meet the legal criteria for doing so. They must have learned their law...
