JOHN MCCAIN & BERNIE SANDERS – A CLEAR-CUT CHOICE

No, Republican Senator John McCain is not running against  “Independent” Senator (in reality, self-professed socialist who caucuses with Democrats) Bernie Sanders – though McCain was the Republican candidate in 2008 and Sanders is making noises about running in 2016. But if you want a clear-cut choice between Mr. McCain\’s and Mr. Sanders\’s views of what...

Tense but peaceful protests over Michael Brown\’s death and other fatal police shootings in Missouri and elsewhere stretched across the St. Louis region Friday as organizers urged hundreds of participants to avoid arrest so that they could return for a weekend of demonstrations. That is the first paragraph of a Fox News story on the protests regarding the shooting deaths of Michael Brown...

MEXICO: OUR “FRIEND”

How would you feel if the government of your country not only allowed you to illegally cross the border and go to a neighboring country, not only encouraged it (by, among other things, putting out booklets explaining how to deal with the neighboring country\’s border patrols)….and now is paying money to keep the neighboring country from sending you back? In a sane world, you would be...

MICHAEL E. DUNCAN\’S PARTING “GIFT”

As the family of michael e. duncan, the Liberian man who came to this country apparently knowing the likelihood he had ebola, complains that his hospital care was not first-rate enough, we now find out that one of the hospital workers has contracted the ebola virus from him.  Think of it as a parting “gift” from duncan, who, if he had lived and returned to Liberia...

THE MOST DISGUSTING POLITICAL AD OF THE YEAR

It is always hard to pick a “most disgusting political ad of the year” because, lamentably, there are so many to choose from. But this one has got to win hands-down. Here is an ad for Texas gubernatorial candidate, Democrat Wendy Davis, attacking her opponent, Republican Greg Abbott, who, due to a freak accident in 1984, has been wheelchair-bound since he was...

Theteen was rushed...

WAY TO GO, MARCIA…ER, MICHELLE

Michelle Obama was sent out to Iowa last night, where she made a campaign speech extolling the military career of Democrat Senate candidate Bruce Bailey. Except the candidate\’s name is Bruce Braley…and he never served in the military. If Ms. Obama had said “Bailey” once, we could chalk it up to inadvertent error.  We all make them. But the 7th time she called him...

A MEMO TO PRESIDENT OBAMA ABOUT AIR STRIKES

I, along with countless others, have repeatedly written about the futility of air strikes on ISIS, without ground troops.  Over this time, many cable news people, and many of their guests – including every military veteran I personally have seen – have said the same. I can do it again now, or just put up CNN\’s lead story, which you can click on for the...

AN ENDORSEMENT THAT WILL REVERBERATE

“Congress is hardly functioning these days. It can\’t pass legislation that is controversial and it often can\’t even pass legislation on which there is broad agreement. Its reputation is abysmal, and even its members rarely dispute the popular indictment. “It needs fresh leadership, energy and ideas, and Cory Gardner can help provide them in the U.S...

ARE NETWORK NEWS SHOWS WITHHOLDING BAD NEWS ABOUT OBAMACARE?

Would you agree that bad news about ObamaCare – which not one Republican senator voted to enact – would be bad news for Democrats in this midterm election year? If so, would you agree that if network news shows had bad news about ObamaCare and did not report it, their abdication of journalistic integrity would be good news for Democrats? With the above in mind, please note that as...

A WIN FOR ILLEGAL VOTERS

Why do I say this? Here is all you need to know, courtesy of an article at Bloomberg.com: Ajudge in CorpusChristi said Texas\’s alleged goal of preventing voter frauddoesn\’t outweigh the discriminatory effect on the poor, blacks andHispanics. “Thedraconian voting requirements” imposed by the law “willdisproportionately impact low-income Texans because they are...

THE END OF ALISON

How much of an amateur is Mich McConnell\’s opponent, Alison Lundergran Grimes? Enough so that she actually ducked answering a reporter who asked “Did you vote for President Obama in 2008 and 2012”? No joke:  she spent 40 seconds doing as clumsy a dance as you will come across, to avoid responding to that most basic of basic questions.  Want to see for...
