Jewish conservative commenting on what makes news each day, and on the stories that catch my fancy

Updated: 2018-01-22T21:45:49.681-05:00


Schumer Slapdown


In his column today, Daniel Greenfield asks the questions I've been asking, and he also answers them:  "Why do illegal aliens come first for Schumer and Kimmel? Why do they come ahead of soldiers and poor kids? Because it’s all about rigging future elections by using illegal aliens to change state demographics.
The Schumer Shutdown is the big Dem bet on a future national majority manufactured through open borders. The Dems are even willing to throw away the midterm elections to get DACA set. They’re gambling that even if the voters turn on them over putting illegal aliens ahead of soldiers and poor kids, it’s worth taking the risk now if they can get an illegal alien amnesty that ends the two-party system.
The Schumer Shutdown trades the benefits of inner city constituents for the illegal alien votes that the Dems hope to gain once amnesty and everything that comes with it kick in. The Democrats are showing African-American voters that they’re worth less to them than future illegal alien voters.
They’re sending the same message to the legal Latino immigrants who vote for them.
The Dems aren’t satisfied with the voters they have. They want the voters that they’re not allowed to have by law. And they’re holding the country hostage until the White House and the Senate majority elected by the voters agree to break the law and destroy the country.
Democrats don’t care about illegal aliens out of the goodness of their crooked hearts. If the average illegal alien crossing the border were Republican, the wall would be up yesterday. And it would be topped with heavy artillery and surrounded by a moat filled with piranhas and crocodiles. Drones would fire Hellfire missiles at anyone even looking at it the wrong way because he might be a Republican.
That’s the shameful, disgusting truth."

And unfortunately we have to go through this disgraceful spectacle again in February, so the Republicans had better get prepared to fight for the citizens they represent.



How can you have anything but contempt for a Democratic party that seems to think that what non-citizens want is worth shutting down our government for?

Jobs and Apple


Wow! I guess the Democrats consider this mere "crumbs" as well:  

"Apple announces plans to repatriate billions in overseas cash, says it will contribute $350 billion to the US economy over the next 5 years.
    Apple says the new tax law will help it contribute $350 billion to the U.S. economy over the next five years.
    It says it will create 20,000 new jobs and open a new campus.
    Apple expects to pay about $38 billion in taxes for the horde of cash it plans to bring back to the United States."

It's been a busy week for news, and what better places to read all about it than at Betsy's Page, Larwyn's Linx, and Maggie's Farm?

Bonus: Yesterday I saw the moving Congressional Gold Medal ceremony for Bob Dole.  I remember him as he was, powerful, with that booming deep voice.

Here's Daniel Greeenfield on the media:  "President Trump needs the media to hate him. And the media needs him to hate. Trump benefits politically from that relationship, but the media only benefits financially from it. The media’s Trump rage ended Hillary’s career, put a Republican in the White House, pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accords, brought in the Muslim travel ban, recognized Jerusalem and did all the other things the media wails about every second of the day. And the media helped make them happen."

I had a laugh when I saw this item in Argus Hamilton's latest column: "The Honolulu Advertiser reported that in the panic following Hawaii's emergency attack alert Saturday one man tried to protect his little girl by shoving her into a sewer drain. You can't make it up. She was placed in a sewer drain, the only S-hole that can't sue Trump for defamation this week."

Here are this week's best posts from around the country thanks to Maggie's Farm, Larwyn's Linx, and Betsy's Page!

Bonus: here's the latest example of whining women:  "I’m a fraud. That’s a sentiment some of the most accomplished among us —including Tina Fey and Meryl Streep — have felt. It’s called 'imposter syndrome,' a feeling that you don’t really deserve your success because you achieved it thanks to luck or some other thing out of your control, rather than your skills and hard work, and a fear you might be 'found out.' And as Melinda Gates wrote on LinkedIn earlier this week — and research backs up — it’s a syndrome common among women."  Why don't you go see a psychiatrist instead of putting on the mantle of victimhood -- yet again?

From the "Not My Fault" Department


From Investor's Business Daily: "Paternalism: Apple is now coming under fire from two big investors for not doing enough to curb childhood addiction to smartphones. What's next? Government warnings and a class-action lawsuit against Big Smartphone?"

As usual, it's never your own behavior, it's grounds for a lawsuit. Parents, stop buying expensive smartphones for your kids. Kids (and adults), please get off the phone and do something constructive for a change. You have an off button -- use it.

Oprah? Nope-rah!


The media has been in a frenzy this week touting the annoying Oprah Winfrey as not only the second coming but also as the next President.  No thanks!  She'd be a combination of a female Obama and a black Hillary, and that's just too much for me. Don't the Democrats have any real candidates left?

Brrr, it's cold -- but you'll get warmed up quickly if you read the great posts at Betsy's Page, Maggie's Farm, and Larwyn's Linx!

Bonus: I was glad to see this news. "Attorney General Jeff Sessions has rescinded an Obama-era policy that paved the way for legalized marijuana to flourish in states across the country, creating new confusion about enforcement and use just three days after a new legalization law went into effect in California."   Good! Why should any drugs be allowed to flourish? And why is marijuana constantly being pushed in the media as being great for the economy? Surely we have real industries and businesses here that are good for the economy without encouraging drug use.

Maggie's Farm, Larwyn's Linx, and Betsy's Page are full of interesting posts this week!

Bonus from Haaretz:  "Opinion: Why Trump's 'America First' Doctrine Is Good for the Jews.  After a year of Trump, and the launch of his national security platform, it’s clear: He’s not pushing isolationism, he's pushing common sense. That's good news for Israel, even though most U.S. Jews won't give him credit - and don't even care."

There's some interesting posts for your Christmas weekend reading, thanks to Betsy's Page, Maggie's Farm, and Larwyn's Linx!

Benny Avni comments on the U.N.tisemitic vote the other day: Anti-Israel General Assembly should feel shamed - not the U.S.

Also, read Caroline Glick's latest column, The International Community and the Liberal Media.

Nixon May Have Had Watergate, But At Least He Didn't Enable Terrorism & Drug-Dealing!


Commenting on the Politico story, Jonathan S. Tobin says, "Now, this is presidential obstruction."

That story is not surprising, if you know Obama. It's "The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation."

The fact that it's Politico that broke this scandal gives it more credibility; Democrats can't blame it on Fox News.  But you can bet the story won't get much attention in the media, and Obama's "legacy" will be unscathed.

Stop by these blogs for the best reading of the week: Betsy's Page, Larwyn's Linx, and Maggie's Farm!

And here's some good news: "The Trump administration will reverse course from previous Obama administration policy, eliminating climate change from a list of national security threats."  So contrary to what John Kerry believes, climate change is NOT a threat like terrorism after all. What a relief to have some common sense at last!

Terrorism: It's All Relative


How's this for gall?  "The family continued to criticize the way the investigation was handled — even though the suspect, Akayed Ullah, allegedly launched a failed terror attack in a crowded city subway tunnel.  'These are not the sorts of actions we expect from our justice system,' the statement read."

The only sort of actions you should expect is that "our" justice system send your relative to Guantanamo Bay where he belongs!

Here's an item from the humorist's latest column: "President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Wednesday sparked angry protests in the Middle East as well as hearty applause from Israelis. The reaction from Muslim groups was swift and angry. The Palestinians just recognized Austin as the capital of Mexico."

Jerusalem: Good for the Jews


Here are some reactions to Trump's historic announcement on the move of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Of course we know how the Muslims will react, so let them riot and protest all they want.

David Efune writes:  "Here we have an administration that for the first time seems prepared to call the Palestinians’ bluff. The recognition of Jerusalem at the onset of a peace initiative — and the lining up of further potential repercussions — shows the Palestinians and the international community just how serious the president is."

The F.B.I-Ay-Ay


From Instapundit, here's the FBI debacle in a nutshell.

Argus Hamilton Quips


This item is sad but true: "The Chicago Tribune reported that the six hundredth person this year was shot and killed in the streets of Chicago last week. It's little wonder why the Democratic Party is opposed to guns. If the shootings continue at this rate, eventually the only people left in Chicago will be Republicans."



Here's a question: why haven't these high-powered media women and celebrity types started their own female-only TV network and media outlet? If they are constantly being harassed by men,  the probability of further harassment would dramatically decrease! Or, in Washington, have women work for women legislators, and let men work for other men. It makes sense to me!

Here are the latest news roundups from Betsy's Page, Larwyn's Linx, and Maggie's Farm.

Bonus: Gerard Van der Leun‏ has written a tribute to his 103 year old mother, at the always wonderful American Digest.

Not Guilty By Reason of Disgraceful Liberal California Jury!


I've been boycotting the nightly news lately -- it's better for your health -- but came across the shocking verdict tonight in the brazen murder of Kate Steinle. How sick, and how sad. Now Kate's parents must feel like Fred Goldman felt upon hearing the verdict for O.J. Simpson.  It was an open and shut case -- and the minds of these jurors must have been firmly shut.  Maybe they, this murderer illegal alien,  and O.J. can all go looking for the real killers together -- in the mirror!

Della Reese has died, and WQXR pays tribute with her great hit "Don't You Know?".  In case YOU don't know, it borrows the music from "Musetta's Waltz"!

Merry You-Know-What!


It's been amusing to hear all the ways that the word "Christmas" is being avoided on TV commercials so far this season. Earlier I even heard "merry holiday" used.  We talk about the erasure of Christmas every year, but this year it seems worse than usual. Children -- and many adults -- must think this is  merely a month-long shopping spree, and sadly, I think they're right.
