A QUICK POINT ABOUT “I CAN\’T BREATHE”

People protesting the police action against Eric Garner have made a rallying cry of the words “I can\’t breathe”, which Garner said repeatedly before dying. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos can\’t breathe either.  And, unlike small-time recidivist Eric Garner, who would be alive today if he had not resisted arrest for illegally selling untaxed cigarettes...

PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S REACTION TO TWO DEAD COPS

President Obama had plenty to say about the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. But now that two New York City police officers are dead, at the hands of someone who has told us in so many words he killed them to get back at police for Brown and Garner?  We have a written statement from Mr. Obama.  No verbal statement at all. But I\’ll bet he got in another round of golf...

DE BLASIO TRIES TO TALK HIS WAY OUT OF HIS PAST

New York City Mayor bill de blasio apparently thinks he talk his way out of his own past. He can\’t. Here is what de blasio said earlier today, via Alexandra Jaffe\’s article at cnn.com: NewYork City Mayor Bill de Blasio called on people Monday to put asidedebates and protests and focus on the families of police officersWenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were killed over the weekend...

ANOTHER REASON TO ROOT FOR THE NEW YORK YANKEES

I became a New York Yankees fan at 8 years of age….approximately the minute I found out that my father rooted for the Brooklyn Dodgers (that is what passed for childhood rebellion in those days).  I have stayed with them through thick and thin (mostly thick, I\’m happy to say) ever since. Well, here is my latest reason to root for the Yankees, via Bill Madden and Teri...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani: “We\’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police. The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don\’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion:...

INEXCUSABLE AND UNFIXABLE

For four months (since the shooting and killing of Michael Brown and, subsequently, the death of Eric Garner) the race hustlers and the hard left have been given virtually unchallenged latitude in spewing their hatred against the police – not just the police involved in these two incidents (who mixed-race grand juries refused to indict), but all police. As they looted, rioted, disrupted...

CLAPPING AND LAUGHING?

I do not know if this is true, but…. …according to London\’s Daily Mail an eyewitness claims there was “clapping and laughing” at the location where two New York Police Officers were shot dead by a murdering sub-human, after he bragged on Instagram that he was going to do exactly that – take out two cops. I will hold off discussing this further until I see...

VERMONT\’S SINGLE (NON) PAYER DEBACLE

I am old enough to remember when Vermont was one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. That, of course, was before the yuppie sprawl from New York and Massachusetts.  Now it is the state, U. S. Senate-wise, of leftist Patrick Leahy, self-described socialist Bernie Sanders….and a serious attempt by its current Governor to implement...

NORTH KOREA\’S THREAT

Now that President Obama has told us there will be consequences for North Korea\’s hijacking of our freedom of speech, because it didn\’t like an unflattering portrayal of the deranged lunatic kim jung un it has reacted by….cowering?  Apologizing?  Promising to be more responsible in the future? Nope.  The state of President Obama\’s credibility is such...

THE COP KILLER, THE SHARPTON ROUTINE

The “man” who killed police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos was named ismaaiyl brinsley.  The fact that, at 29 years of age, he had a rap sheet longer than the Amazon River but was, again, out of jail, is a sick statement on our criminal justice system. He apparently murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore before taking a bus to New York City to murder police officers –...

THE RACIAL MESS IN NEW YORK CITY

Before Eric Garner died in a physical confrontation with New York City police, the tension between the NYPD and Mayor Bill de Blasio was thicker than thick.  Police felt that de Blasio was no fan of theirs, but someone who thought they had to be reined in – someone who saw them as guilty until proved innocent. These tensions soared after the Garner death.  Police saw de...

SONY CEO MICHAEL LYNTON AS AN UPSET, AGGRIEVED PARTY

CNN has an article on one of its web sites in which Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Entertainment, hits back at President Obama for his criticism that Sony made a mistake by pulling “The Interview” without talking to him first. Given that Michael Lynton apparently feels, that as the guy in charge, he is an upset, aggrieved party, I decided to check and see whether Mr. Lynton is...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from President Obama – by virtue (talk about an inappropriate description) of his dismissive little lecture to Sony yesterday. Sony, let\’s remember, has just gone through a month of supersedingly embarrassing revelations, courtesy of North Korean hackers who have made it more than clear they have a treasure trove of the company\’s...

THE CASTRO/OBAMA “CONVERSATION”

Can this be true?  Can President Obama have apologized for raul castro because he spoke to him for 15 minutes….and then listened to a 30 minute lecture from castro? According to Mike Warren at weeklystandard.com: Obamabegan the phone call with Castro with what he described as 15 minutesof opening comments. It was the first conversation between the headsof state in both countries since...
