Trump’s new Jerusalem policy, recognizes reality, ends a failed paradigm, and begins a new era that finally promises peace in the Middle East. Congratulations #Jerusalem! pic.twitter.com/SIMqfB5I6h — Tel Aviv (@TelAviv) December 6, 2017 I was all ready to celebrate the big news but Linda Sarsour’s bakery is refusing to top [Read More]

“It’s The Economy, Stup — . . . oh.” (By Wolf Howling)

December 6, 2017 Bookworm 0

The proggies are trying hard to hide the fact that Obama’s economy was pathetic and that Trumps’ economy is already setting records that win elections. Always nice to see Ron, isn’t it?  That clip is from 1980, when Ronald Reagan ran on a promise to cure President Carter’s “economic malaise.”  I [Read More]

Why did Michael Flynn plead guilty to a big Nothingburger?

December 4, 2017 Bookworm 0

My best guess: Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to telling a lie about legal conduct because he was taking the fall for someone very important. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying about something that wasn’t a crime, earning himself the very real possibility of jail time. The interview [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 11/19/17 — the illustrated edition

November 19, 2017 Bookworm 0

There’s something for everyone (at least everyone with sound common sense, an informed mind, and a good brain) in my latest illustrated edition. I had a post I wanted to write today, but haven’t yet figured out how to do it without violating someone’s privacy. So, while I wrestle with [Read More]

Once again, a hypocrisy check, this time about Judge Roy Moore

November 12, 2017 Bookworm 1

The difference between Roy Moore’s situation and the Hollywood story, the unreliable accuser, and the WaPo’s manifest bias, means I currently believe Moore. Sorry for the long silence, but it’s been an all family, all the time few days, interspersed with a quick-turnaround legal research project. I’ve been a bit [Read More]

Katha Pollitt writes the feel-good article of the week

November 8, 2017 Bookworm 0

I’m not usually a person who revels in Schadenfreude, but I have to say that a primal scream from Katha Pollitt against Trump-land is incredibly gratifying. Katha Pollitt didn’t set out to write a feel-good article. In fact, she feels terrible — but it’s the reasons behind her feelings that [Read More]

Michael Chertoff: Visa program separate issue than terrorism

November 1, 2017 Puma ByDesign 0

Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff, seems to think that the Diversity Waiver Program is “a separate issue than [Islamic] terrorism.”  How different can it be when jihadists are entering the country under these programs?  The program is flawed. Chertoff protecting George W. Bush’s legacy and the establishment. [Read More]

Dueling headlines: Uranium One and Frederica Wilson

October 23, 2017 Bookworm 0

Perhaps the most shocking thing of all about the Uranium One corruption scandal is the drive-by media’s deliberate effort to hide the story from the public. The following headlines are only a slight exaggeration. I’ve used “The Hill,” which broke the Uranium One story, as a representative of those few [Read More]

Two reports yesterday highlight Trump Derangement Syndrome

October 18, 2017 Bookworm 1

A snapshot of Trump Derangement Syndrome: the different responses to reports about Trump’s alleged insensitivity versus Hillary’s selling America to Russia. Yesterday’s news broke two stories, one detailing massive national security infractions involving Russians during the Obama administration and one reporting the claim that Trump was insensitive to the widow [Read More]

2018 Mid-term Elections: McConnell Challenges Bannon

October 16, 2017 Puma ByDesign 0

Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is to the right what Congressional minority leader, Nancy Pelosi is to the left. Both are out of touch, have long overstayed their welcome and too undignified to go quietly into the night. During a press conference with President Donald J. Trump this afternoon in [Read More]
