It's all about her!

When Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, after referring to the blood of the fallen soldiers having consecrated the ground of that Pennsylvania pasture, he concluded his brief remarks by saying that because of their ultimate sacrifice, “This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that the government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

What Lincoln could not foresee was that a century and a half later, …

How is it that ISIS, numbering fewer than 10,000 Islamic cretins, can pretty much overrun Iraq and instill fear throughout the entire Middle East and here in America?  And while we’re on the subject, why haven’t we signed them up to deal with Iran, Russia and North Korea?

As for Iraq, where Obama saw fit to squander American lives and treasure by simply packing up and walking away, I say the most sensible resolution to a problem involving Shiites, Sunnis and …

I admit I don’t see a sliver of difference between so-called good Muslims and the kind the rest of the world has become all too familiar with, and, what’s more, I don’t believe anyone who says otherwise is being honest.

If there were so many good, decent followers of Allah, doesn’t it figure that the law of averages would ensure there would be at least a few civilized Islamic nations?  Instead, they’re all simply different degrees of rotten.

As I sit here, …

If it were up to me, “Unfair and Unbalanced” would be the motto of MSNBC.  Instead, they’ve chosen to go with “Lean Forward.”  When your hosts include the likes of Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Woody Allen’s kid Ronan Farrow and Al Sharpton, you’re not really running a cable news network, though.  It’s really more of an asylum for the insane and the inane.

In some quarters, MSNBC stands for Morons, Slackers, Nitwits, Bigots and Cuckoos.  What other so-called news …

It wasn’t that long ago that a prospective Supreme Court justice was blackballed because he had occasionally smoked marijuana while in college.  Although it seems as if it happened a hundred years ago, it wasn’t that long until we elected Bill Clinton, who admitted he had smoked pot, but lied about never having inhaled.  That’s like saying you ate a T-bone steak, but didn’t swallow.

We then elected Barack Obama who not only smoked the $h1t on a regular basis, but …

I have no interest in soccer. Just as I have no interest in most events staged during the Olympics.  And, frankly, I don’t get why any American feels the need to tune in every four years to watch the World Cup or synchronized swimming.

I just find it profoundly stupid to sit and watch a game played with a ball in which you can’t use your hands.  I’m not suggesting it isn’t a display of great stamina, but so is the …

Somebody will one day have to explain to me why we or the Israelis ever imprison terrorists.  If we’re not going to execute them, why capture them at all?  Why bother feeding and clothing them until the day comes that the bad guys capture one of ours in order to trade him in for five, 500 or a thousand of theirs?  In the case of Israel, they’ve even been known to swap hundreds of jihadists in exchange for a single …

It’s a wonder to me that there are still people who can listen to liberals and believe a word they say.  Whether it’s Obama’s promising that we could keep our doctors and our health plans, Harry Reid’s calling cancer victims liars for daring to disclose the hardships wrought by the Affordable Care Act or Elizabeth Warren claiming to be a Cherokee in order to get herself hired at diversity-crazy Harvard, there are millions of chuckleheads who will happily swallow the …

I realize that the late Sen. Goldwater is anathema to liberals, even to those who only know him as the unfortunate victim of a famous TV spot in which a little girl picking a flower appears to be vaporized by a nuclear bomb.  The vile message in 1964 was that Goldwater was a nutburger who was anxious to get us involved in a nuclear showdown with the Soviet Union.  Because most voters 50 years ago were just as dumb as …

While liberals are always blaming Republicans for the plight of black Americans, what they never do is hold black Americans responsible for their own troubles.  Instead they pretend that 2014 America is the spitting image of 1814 Alabama.  They tsk-tsk over poverty in urban communities, but never utter a word about the 71% illegitimacy rate in those communities or the fact that one-third of black males don’t even bother graduating from high school.

It doesn’t take an Einstein to figure out …
