Obama School

In the wake of Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress and the American people, Obama said he heard nothing new. Proving that his ears, in spite of their humongous size, don’t work too well, he also said that Israel’s prime minister was calling for war. Unlike Obama, I, who watched and listened to the entire speech, heard Netanyahu call for additional sanctions. I also heard him voice what every sane American believes — that a bad deal is far, far worse …

Barack Obama insists we can’t identify the enemy because if we utter the word “Islamic,” even if we modify it with “extremists,” “jihadists” or “fundamentalists,” every Muslim will assume we’re at war with them. Not only is that absurd and condescending, but it doesn’t come close to passing the smell test.

There are factions of Muslims who are constantly at war with one another, so why would Muslims assume that if we attack, say, ISIL or Boko Haram, but not Jordan …

I wonder how many million Americans were fantasizing Netanyahu in the Oval Office as he spoke sense from the same podium used by Obama to spew left-wing baby talk just six weeks earlier.

Besides the content of their remarks, the major difference is that Obama spoke to a full house, whereas Netanyahu addressed a chamber from which a great many Democrats and one Republican pinhead, Walter Jones of North Carolina, had excused themselves. The absentees included Joe Biden, Sens. Al Franken …

Recently, the FCC passed what is basically a nullification of the 1st Amendment. What’s more, they passed it along party lines, three Democrats out-voting two Republicans. Also, they did it secretly, which is pretty much the way that everything is done under Obama.

Naturally, they misnamed it Net Neutrality just as they did with the Affordable Care Act. Neutrality is the go-to word for villains because it sounds fair and objective. But keep in mind that during WWII, it was Switzerland …

Every year, I watch the Oscars and every year I swear it’s for the last time. Mainly what keeps bringing me back is the 25 cent bet I make with my wife and the bragging rights that go with it. As you can see, ours is not the most exciting household in the San Fernando Valley.

Still, I hasten to mention that I have won the quarter every single year. This year, however, after jumping off to a 5-2 lead, Yvonne …

When Barack Obama, who refuses to face tough questions from anyone, agreed to be interviewed by Glozell Green, whose major claim to fame is that she once got into a bathtub filled with milk and Fruit Loops and began eating her breakfast cereal, some people said it was beneath the dignity of the office.

I really wish I could agree, but the truth is that there’s nothing beneath this man’s dignity. He will lie about anything. He will overlook Islamic terrorism …

Even though Bernie Goldberg has elected for perfectly rational reasons to stop posting my articles, we continue to exchange friendly email. I like Bernie and I think he’s a smart guy, but occasionally I think he goes out of his way to poke Evangelicals, possibly to appear fair and balanced when attacking Islamic jihadists.

Although Bernie is not a liberal, it is the sort of moral equivalence in which those on the Left are often engaged. It’s not unlike Obama’s comparing …

It’s been 39 years since the movie “Network” was released and we were all introduced to Howard Beale, the half-crazed TV anchorman created by Paddy Chayefsky and portrayed by Peter Finch. It was he who urged his audience to get off their couches, walk to the window, open it and scream: “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

These days, network anchormen either lie about the news or about their personal exploits, occasionally doing both …

In the 1989 movie, “When Harry Met Sally,” there is a famous restaurant scene in which Sally (Meg Ryan) and Harry (Billy Crystal) are having lunch when the subject turns to sex, and Sally feels called upon to prove that women can fake orgasms. Harry doesn’t believe it, so Sally starts to moan and groan and thrash around in her chair, seemingly oblivious to her surroundings. When the waiter approaches an elderly woman (director Rob Reiner’s mother, Estelle) and asks …

I fully grasp why some people object to the way I tend to hop from topic to topic. They would prefer if, like all the other pundits, I stuck to one subject. The truth is that I, too, would prefer it that way. However, at the rate at which the world displays its insanity, even with three or four articles a week and half a dozen or so items in each one of them, I keep falling behind. So try …
