OIL PRICES

It is 9:22 AM.  As I type this, WTI (West Texas Intermediate) oil is trading at $42.31 a barrel.  A couple of weeks ago, when oil dropped below $45 a barrel, gas prices fell to the $1.70-1.75 a gallon range.  Then, when oil kicked back up to the low $50\’s, gas jumped to well over $2 a gallon. Now oil is $2.50 lower than the lowest we saw weeks ago.  So...

ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE NEW ISRAELI KNESSET….

This is for the amazingly ill-informed people who actually believe that Israel is an “apartheid state”. With all the attention being paid to Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory, it would be a shame if another significant result of the Israeli national elections got lost in the haze. The Arab presence in Israel’s Knesset (Parliament) grew from 12 members to 17. That’s...

AARON SCHOCK’S RESIGNATION

Rep. Aaron Schock, the 33 year old third-term Republican house member from Illinois, has suddenly resigned, effective March 31. The reason, if CNN’s article has it right, is that Shock is a one-man repository of shady, illegal dealings which benefit him personally. More on this as additional information becomes available.  But if the initial information I’m reading is...

ISRAEL’S ELECTIONS (SO FAR)

CNN is reporting that, at this moment, Benjamin  Netanyahu’s Likud Party and Isaac Herzog’s Zionist Union Party running about even. This is good news for Netanyahu for two reasons. One is that his Party was expected to win fewer seats than Herzog’s, so he starts in better shape than he could have been in. The second involves the fact that Israelis do not vote for individuals...

PSAKI\’S GIGGLY SCHOOLGIRL ROUTINE

This unbelievably cringeworthy video is jen psaki putting on her “15 year old giggly schoolgirl” routine – I think it is a routine – when asked, again whether Hillary Clinton had or had not signed form OF-109 – a standard form which says that the signee, upon leaving the State Department, has turned over all relevant records. As you watch, keep in mind that it...

OBAMA’S CONCEPT OF TREASON

I thank Daniel Greenfield, who writes for frontpagemag.com, and also for his own blog, sultanknish.com. Despite the (unfortunate, in my opinion) cutesiness of that blog name, Mr. Greenfield is an exceptionally talented thinker and writer…which is proven by today’s commentary, which deals with the contortions President Barack Obama and his people engage in to accuse others of what...
