THE ANTI-ISRAEL ADMINISTRATION: A REACTION

How many times does the Obama administration have to jab Israel in the ribs before there is a reaction from someone other than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (who not only is 10 times the head of state Barack Obama will ever be the best day of his life, but matches – maybe outmatches – him intellectually as well)? Here\’s an answer for you, via excerpts from Ari...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s Quote Of The Day comes to us from former President Bill Clinton.  While campaigning for incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Pryor in Arkansas, Mr. Clinton had this to say about the economy: “Theyare really running against the president, aren\’t they? They see thesepolls, the President is unpopular in Arkansas and, yeah, the economyis coming back but nobody...

ADRIAN PETERSON: “SPORTS HERO”?

Most of us are aware of the fact that two NFL players, the Baltimore Ravens\’ ray rice and the Minnesota Vikings\’ adrian peterson, are in trouble this year. rice was caught on camera clocking his then-girlfriend (now wife – which, under the circumstances, is pretty pathetic) and knocking her unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator, then dragging her prostrate body out...

TURKEY, ISIS AND SELF-PRESERVATION

Turkey is the latest member of the “coalition” against ISIS. Are you impressed?  Don\’t be.  Turkey, headed by the Islamist recep tayyip erdogan – who, despite his apparent love of shari\’a law and hatred of Israel is not close to being acceptable to ISIS – is watching the fall of Kobani, a Syrian town right on the Turkish border. erdogan may...

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: SAYING “YES” BY NOT SAYING “NO”

I\’ll make this short and to the point. Today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear cases from Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin and Indiana, all seeking to maintain their bans on same-sex marriages. Good. It is none of the states\’ business whether a man or woman wants a marital commitment to another person of the same sex.  If people who are against same sex marriage...

DO THEY WANT AN EBOLA OUTBREAK?

If the title of this blog were referring to al-qaeda, or ISIS, we\’d all know the answer is “yes”, and be appropriately outraged by it. But what if it were referring to the Center for Disease Control (CDC)?  Or to a hospital in Delaware?  Would you even be able to come close to the appropriate level of outrage? Read the following article from CBS News\’...

REASON # 62,971 WHY POLITICAL POLLS ARE ALWAYS SUSPECT

I show political polls in this blog for two reasons: 1) Even if inaccurate, polls done the same way each time, thus with the same inaccuracies each time, can indicate movements in voter sentiment even if the numbers themselves are not correct; 2) People obsess on polls, so I have to. But every now and then I like to show you why I have a problem with them.  And here is...

PROJECT VERITAS AND ALISON LUNDERGRAN GRIMES

Alison Lundergran Grimes is the Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate from Kentucky.  To win, she has to unseat long-time Republican Senator Mitch McConnell. Not so long ago, the “pundits” (God I hate that word) were telling us that she was positioned to do just that:  McConnell was a dinosaur, on his way out. Funny thing, though:  the dinosaur seems to have a lot of...

WAS BARACK OBAMA THE CAUSE OF ISIS?

Were the failed, naive policies of Barack Obama why ISIS came into being? No one, of course, can answer that question for sure. But Islamic scholar Raymond Ibrahim has an opinion well worth considering: Obamawas repeatedly warned that withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraqwould lead to something exactly like the Islamic State-with all theatrocities that have become synonymous with that...

ANDREA MITCHELL: THE AGONY AND THE HONESTY

The agony must have been excruciating.  Andrea Mitchell, as strong an Obama supporter as there is on mainstream media (ok, ok, she\’s in a tie with dozens of others, but a strong supporter anyway) could not fake a smiley-face about the economic news that had just come out – even as a good many of the others seemed just fine with doing so. Here is what Ms. Mitchell had to say on...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes from a personal favorite of President Obama\’s; the self-professed communist Van Jones. Jones, who was a “Green Jobs” advisor for the Obama administration until some of the loonier elements of his past caught up with him (e.g., aside from being a communist,  he signed a petition indicating that 9/11 was an inside job) and he...

IS THOMAS E. DUNCAN DEAD?

There are reports – not yet confirmed – that thomas e. duncan, who lied about his ebola and flew to the USA with a planeload of people, then had physical contact with God knows how many here, has died of the ebola virus. How many more did he put at risk?  How many more will he take with him who don\’t even know they have the ebola virus yet?  How many more will they...

Joe Biden, speaking to a crowd in Joplin, Missouri on Friday: “161,000brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparentslost” Allow me to put 160,839 families\’ fears to rest:  The death total from the tornado which hit Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011 – horrible though it was...

ABOUT THAT JOBS REPORT

Great news on jobs.  From August to September, unemployment dropped from 6.1% to 5.9%, and 248,000 new jobs were created. What a lucky break for Democrats, who can now run on these terrific new numbers (assuming that anyone is paying attention, as ISIS advances and ebola becomes a major health concern). But are the numbers really as good as they look? Well, let\’s start with...

DEMOCRATS RUNNING FROM OBAMA? REALLY?

“Iam not on the ballot this fall.  Michelle\’s pretty happy aboutthat.  But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”:  President Obama, Thursday Can a Democrat senate or house candidate credibly run an anti-Barack Obama campaign? Mr. Obama is certainly giving them a chance to find out. Excerpted from Noah...
