Though the event was barely mentioned in American media, Raouf Abdel-Rahman was executed on June 18 by ISIS (“Islamic State”) rebels in Iraq. With all the turmoil and bloodshed in that nation, the death of any single individual might seem inconsequential. However, it was he who presided [...]
I live in the Southwest corner of Connecticut, one of the bluest states in the nation. But despite the influx of New York liberals that have ruled the roost here for the last 40 years or so, a great many of my neighbors are down-to earth, common [...]
It is not histories I am writing, but lives; and in the most glorious deeds there is not always an indication of virtue or vice, indeed a small thing like a phrase or a jest often makes a greater revelation of a character than battles where thousands [...]
SOME TIMES IT’S BETTER TO KEEP YOU TRAP SHUT IN MEDIA INTERVIEWS ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL WEALTH
Please don’t buy this prevaricating politician’s book.
COMING TO THE ‘REMAINDER’ BIN IN A BOOK STORE NEAR YOU VERY SOON
Sales are already plummeting to the 100,000 [...]
As an attorney who concentrated in the area of tax law for fair number of years after spending another two years at a CPA office, which specialized in tax work, the entire Lois Lerner centered IRS scandal is enough to make a call for some sort of revolution sound like reasoned judgment. The whole [...]
President Obama, You Are Such A Loser!
If you’re fed up with what’s going on in the Obama White House, then check out the following video:
Watch it in amazement as Megyn Kelly takes only 82 SECONDS to expose all of the Obama-administration’s incompentence & duplicity – surely a record-setting pace, worthy of inclusion [...]
The left consistently blames guns for school shootings, while mostly ignoring the big elephant in the room: mental illness. Up until the 1960s, the severely mentally ill were locked up in psychiatric hospitals, for their own good and for the protection of society. The ACLU and the [...]
JOHN VOIGHT TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
Yes, folks, there is actually a Tinseltown celebrity who tell it the way it should be told – not using the politically-correct Euro-speak of Babs Streisand or George Clooney, but instead the voice of someone who still want to believe in the American dream.
My proof, in living [...]
A well-respected, non-partisan watchdog group, currently probing the allegations of misconduct and malfeasance at healthcare facilities run by the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department, is refusing to comply with a federal subpoena on Friday ordering the group to reveal the identities of – and information provided by – [...]
So it turns out there that something doesn’t have to be true to be funny.
Many a thinking American – who knows media bias – finds the following perversely appropriate.
Young Get News From Comedy Central
Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Dan Rather … and Jon Stewart?
We are told incessantly by the media pundits that the GOP has moved sharply to the right. Supposedly, the Republican Party establishment is under assault from the Tea Party in a largely successful attempt to shift the Party’s center of gravity to starboard. No mention [...]
This article will be a departure from my usual fare. I will not claim there is some Absolute Truth deeming soccer the bane of humanity’s sports. I do not contend that some objective, divine standard places it in Dante’s ninth circle of athletic arenas, though I wish [...]
H.L. Mencken, in 1918, observed that “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
Much of politics is made up of what is called, in [...]
If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d [...]
The Republican Establishment is still reeling from the political repercussions of Virginia’s seventh district congressional primary, in which House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost to challenger Dave Brat, a political novice. Naturally, the entrenched party members are doing their best to convince themselves, and all of America, [...]
Comparing the ever-growing and accumulating list of issues that have bedeviled this administration including
Fast and Furious where the ATF was compliant in running guns into a neighboring country to arm known criminals POTUS giving his AG executive immunity to ensure that he will not be [...]
It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one’s steps to the upper air – there’s the rub, the task.

INVEST, OR DON’T INVEST, BUT STILL BE HAPPY
And a happy “Can Things Get Any Worse In The World Day” to all you readers tonight.
Tonight, I’d like to put on my investor adviser hat (https://twitter.com/MurraySoupcoff) and talk about what is probably the second most interesting topic after Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Saturday night suggestion that [...]
Submission to get a deal undermines what it wishes to preserve.
If you follow big time politics, such as in “who invades whom and why,” then you noticed that the victims of state crimes are dropped if the aggressor shows brawn. The greater the [...]
U.S. DOCUMENT REVEALS COOPERATION BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD
Yes, gang, here’s yet another justification for impeaching one of the most, well, disloyal presidents in American history.
Take a look at this news story from the most recent “Gulf News Report” (GulfNews.com) on June 18, 2014:
STUDIES COMMISSIONED BY THE PRESIDENT CONCLUDED THAT THE U.S. [...]
THE BHENGAZI SPIN
Oh my, what an unexpected coincidence.
Just 642 days after America’s community-organizer-in-chief promised to immediately begin efforts to bring the Benghazi murders to justice, Benghazi militia member & self-described embassy traffic guard, Amed Abu Khattala, was arrested as a “possible” organizer of the 2012 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
New terms: “Islamic Supremacist.” “Criminally negligent homicide.” This report centers on the massive foreign policy failures of the Obama Administration, and traces through recent history how they came about. The real story of Benghazi and Cairo comes out, and how they are linked. Also if any charge is to come out of the House [...]
Iraq is falling apart as I write this, and despite the interventionist hawks who want to blame it on Obama’s weakness and indecision, it’s not Obama’s fault. It’s the fault of a foolish policy from the start. Let’s look back.
In the lead up to the Iraq War, we were assured by neocon hawks that [...]
THE LOSERS AT THE IRS LOSE THEIR MINDS, TRYING TO PULL OFF THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE DISAPPEARING ACT IN HISTORY … THE LIKES OF WHICH HASN’T BEEN SEEN SINCE HARRY HOUDINI MADE AN ELEPHANT DISAPPEAR IN NEW YORK CITY, AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY
All right, folks, let’s try and deconstruct this amazing magic act [...]
