Trump’s Initial Achievements
Thursday, April 27th, 2017 | Author:

I have to agree with Larry Elder — The most important success was stopping the march of Leftism:

President Donald Trump’s biggest achievement in his first 100 days? Easy. He stopped the left.

Measure Trump’s first 100 days not just by looking at what he has or has not accomplished. Look at what America would have experienced under the alternative: Hillary Clinton.

Under Clinton, the debate would not be on how to replace Obamacare, but how quickly can the left realize its ultimate ambition, a Canadian-style, single-payer system. Under Clinton, the issue would not be how steep the tax cuts, but how many…

Leftist Jews and Anti-Semitism
Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 | Author:

Leftist Jews always prioritize progressive causes ahead of Judaism

The most outrageous tissue of lies I have seen in my forty-five years as a journalist appeared yesterday on the website of The Forward, a once-great Jewish publication long since absorbed into the echo chamber of liberal propaganda.

“How does the Forward expect to get away this with, when the whole television interview is on the public record,” one might ask. The answer is: They don’t. Neither did Goebbels.

Earth Day Predictions 1970 
Thursday, April 20th, 2017 | Author:

It is the 47th anniversary of “Earth Day” when all the Gaea-lovers got together to prognosticate the end of the world… How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970?

The prophets of doom were not simply wrong, but spectacularly wrong…

Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 issue of Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years”…

Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated the humanity would totally run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver would be gone before 1990.

A Mole Safari
Thursday, April 20th, 2017 | Author:


I don’t know what it is with moles and me, but I seem to encounter them during uncharacteristic times.  They theoretically stay underground during daylight hours, but while walking through my ‘back 40’, I discovered one with its tuchus hanging out while it was trying to burrow underground.   I used my size 11s to continue my long-delayed mole safari… My neighbor was very appreciative.


May 9, 2006

For those of you not familiar with moles, these are little mammals that live underground and burrow holes under your lawn.  The mole was originally made famous in the movie Caddyshack, where Bill Murray played the nutty golf groundskeeper challenged by the moles that were digging up the putting greens…

Since I had moles under my lawn — and I tried every humane method to eradicate these creatures — I decided that I needed to go on a mole safari.   I set various spring-loaded traps above their burrows — and what do you know, I skewered a couple of the grey, furry, overgrown mice.

More Young Americans Live With Parents Than With Spouse
Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 | Author:

Interesting change in culture:

According to a new study by the U.S. Census Bureau.“There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement.”

In 1975, 31.9 million Americans in the 18-to-34 age bracket were married and lived with their spouse… In 2016, only 19.9 million were married and lived with a spouse—while 22.9 million lived in their parents’ home.

White Men Can’t Run?
Friday, April 07th, 2017 | Author:

From now on, ESPN tells us that inane statements about stereotypes are only considered ‘outspoken’:

LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of former UCLA guard Lonzo Ball, gave two reasons Thursday for why the Bruins were eliminated in the NCAA tournament: Lonzo was saddled by a hamstring injury, and some of his teammates, whom LaVar referred to as “three white guys,” couldn’t pick up the slack.

The Clintons and Charity
Tuesday, April 04th, 2017 | Author:

These are figures from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for the tax year 2014.  Anyone may obtain a copy of the tax return from the National Center for Charitable Statistics website.

Total revenue (line 12) ………………..$177,804, 612.00
Total grants to charity (line 13) ………..$5,160,385.00
Total expenses ………………………………$91,281,145.00

Expenses include:
Salaries (line 15)………………$34,838,106.00
Fund raising fees (line 16a)……$850,803.00
Other expenses (line 17)…….$50,431,851.00

They list 486 employees (line 5).  Evidently, it took 486 people who were paid $34.8 million along with $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 million.   To make it even more disconcerting, the Foundation granted less than 3% of total revenue to charities!  Most people would interpret a foundation with these numbers as a scam.

Here’s the link to the actual tax return at the National Center for Charitable Statistics.
