ROMNEY\’S NO

Mitt Romney has announced he will not seek the 2016 Republican nomination. That\’s bad news in the sense that this is a man who has spent his entire life succeeding at everything he did.  But it is also good news for Republicans, because – due to a combination of the facts that he has tried and failed in the past, he would be seen by some as a tired retread, he has been on...

BIBI\’S BARACK BOOMLET

This past week, President Obama – who had already spent 6 years making his dislike of Israel and loathing of its current Prime Minister, Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, just about as clear as he could…made it even clearer.  Mr. Obama will not meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu when he comes to the USA to address a joint session of congress in...

A QUICK NOTE TO SARAH PALIN

A quick note to Sarah Palin: Ms. Palin: I do not dislike you personally.  But, partly because media hate you and partly because your comments, your actions, and those of your family, have brought it on yourselves, you are finished as a national political figure.  Please enjoy your celebrity and, of course, feel free to go on talk shows and give your opinions about...

SLEEPIING WITH THE ENEMY

Earlier this week, members of our Department of State met with an Islamic delegation which included leaders of the Muslim brotherhood – that\’s right, the Muslim brotherhood:  a terrorist group which would like nothing more than to vaporize Israel and depose Egypt\’s current President, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who has shown the remarkable courage to speak...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from MSNBC\’s Willie Geist – and I hope he is not reprimanded for it, or worse. First a little context.  The movie “American Sniper”, which chronicles the life of Chris Kyle, who was a remarkably successful sniper protecting United States forces and the Iraqis working with them, has become a transcendentally huge hit.  So...

THE INTREPID – ROUND II

My wife and I are taking our grandson to see the Intrepid next month. I call it Round II, because Round I, our original date, was January 18th, when the rain and ice made it impossible to go. My purpose in mentioning this is not to tell you that seeing such an iconic aircraft carrier is worthwhile; I\’m sort of hoping you already know as much.  The Intrepid was commissioned...

WILLIAM KRISTOL EXPLAINS BARACK OBAMA\’S ANGER AT ISRAEL

William Kristol\’s explanation of why Barack Obama is enraged by Israel is not, in my opinion, the complete story.  But he has enough of it right to cause me to show you this excerpt from his latest commentary — and strongly urge you to use the link I\’ve provided to read the rest: Whyhas Obama been lashing out? Because he had a dream. He was to be theAmerican...

OIL

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures settled at $44.45 a barrel yesterday.  It is still trading under $45 as of now (about 10:20AM). In June it was trading at about $108. Is this good news?  Depends on who you are.  It sure is for consumers.   And it doesn\’t trouble me a bit that it is putting the wood to countries like Russia, Venezuela and Iran, among...

A NOTE, AND A QUESTION, FOR THE LOST TRIBE

A note, and a question, for the Lost Tribe – i.e. theJews, and non-Jews, who support Israel but still support Barack Obama. Iran is on record as intending to wipeIsrael off the face of the map.  It is building a nuclear capability to dojust that. Barack Obama\’s reaction? To have economic sanctions on Iran lifted, thus freeing up billions and billions of dollars for...

YOO HOO…….HILLARY…….ARE YOU OUT THERE SOMEWHERE?

There is a rumor floating around that Hillary Clinton may testify at the latest Benghazi hearing (which, with Trey Gowdy as chair instead of Darrell Issa, may actually get some results). If so, it will be nice to see Hillary again….given that, other than a one-day jaunt to Canada, she has not headlined an event since December 15th of last year, and is not scheduled to do so again...

I do not have the verbatim transcript yet.  But, in this morning\’s confirmation hearing, Loretta Lynch, appointed by Barack Obama to replace eric holder as Attorney General, informed us that people who are here illegally should have equal dibs on jobs with legal citizens. She tried to dance around the question, but that is what she said. Ms. Lynch also made it clear that the de facto...

CHARLES BLOW\’S SON

Charles Blow is a New York Times op-ed columnist.  He has a son who attends Yale University. On Monday, Mr. Blow\’s column was an impassioned account of his son being stopped, while walking from the library to his dorm, by an officer – with gun drawn – who told him to to identify himself, asked a number of other questions, and eventually let him continue on his way. It...

OBAMACARNAGE (CONT.)

Here\’s a little bit of news most mainstream media won\’t be providing you with…because it reflects badly – very badly – on ObamaCare. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), ten million people will be pushed off of employer-based insurance coverage by 2021.  Originally, it had projected just one million. Ten million?  Up from one...

BLIZZARDS AND BLAME

There are people – a good number of them, evidently – attacking Governors Cuomo of New York, Christie of New Jersey, Malloy of Connecticut and Mayor bill de blasio of New York City for overreacting to the blizzard that, for the most part, turned into little more than a good-sized snowfall (as opposed to Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, where it was everything the forecasters...
