As hurricane Irma ripped into Florida, Miss America’s finalists were bated into bashing President Trump. While it is too early to assess the damage, my guess is the lasting effects on this historic piece of Americana will linger long after Florida has recovered and they will not be good.
The grand finale of the iconic Miss America Pageant always has been questions thrown at the finalists. It has been the undoing of many young women in a contest where poise is as important as one’s overall beauty and talent. The objective was to answer the question confidently without saying anything too controversial or dumb.

In Washington, it’s known as the Rahm Emanuel Rule (Obama’s former chief of staff): You never miss a chance to convert a crises — even one manufactured to fit a holiday —into political pork for your favorite special interest group.
That’s why the radical environmentalists are out in force this Christmas, scaring children by telling them that reindeer — the kind that Santa uses to pull his magical sleigh on Christmas Eve — are getting weaker due to global warming.
This is not the first time that global warming alarmists have pulled this one out of the hat at Christmas, but this attempt may be the most desperate. With our country wrapped in a deep freeze and a new team heading the Environmental Protection Agency, some of the money flowing to those trying to prove this theory may dry up if they don’t pull out all the stops.
“Make the public fearful! Yes! Scare the children into believing that Trump wants to starve Santa’s reindeer. Why they are barely able to pull all that weight now! Who knows what will happen if all the funding flowing to scientists and universities for global warming is cut? Might have to cancel Christmas!” Continue reading “Trump Wants to Starve Santa’s Reindeer”
Seven years into his presidency Barack Obama finally found his mojo and declared war!
Americans were astonished that within three weeks of the bloody Paris attacks, the U.S. leader dropped everything to jet to the city where the carnage occurred and, after laying a rose at the Bataclan Concert Hall, spoke persuasively to150 world leaders.
This usually mild-mannered man was extraordinarily forceful when he urged those assembled to “take action” in order to save the world against a growing threat that “could define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other.”
Obama did not mince words when he warned nations large and small that “there is such a thing as being too late!” Continue reading “Obama Declares War!”
The U.S. is no longer a world power to be respected by our friends and feared by by our enemies. It is not that we don’t have the might to protect our borders or the ability to defend our allies and our interests abroad, its that we no longer have the will.
As the world watches in disbelief, we appear too weak to rescue our citizens trapped in Yemen, a war-torn country we abandoned shortly after Obama held it up as a counter terrorism success story. Continue reading “Americans trapped in Yemen, Obama Does Nothing”
The Emperor Nero may have gotten a bum rap. It is believed this ancient leader fiddled while a great fire burned his Rome to the ground in A.D. 64, but the fiddle, or violin, hadn’t been invented yet. Nevertheless, Nero did consider himself a serious musician. Most likely the fiddling was simply a metaphor for his bad judgement, insensitivity and ineffectiveness.
Obama showed some of these same traits last weekend when he jetted to southern California for a commencement address, which was an excuse to spend a long weekend playing golf at two exclusive resorts in Palm Springs, barely squeezing in a fundraiser.
Now I don’t resent the president taking a little me-time or using his taxpayer-funded high-priced transportation to have a little fun, but if ever there was a time to stay in the White House Situation Room, this was it. Continue reading “Nero Fiddled; Obama Putts Around”
Call me a skeptic, but isn’t it a coincidence that the latest fear mongering report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change came out on the heels of the world-wide premiere of Noah, Hollywood’s latest big-budget disaster movie?
The former was produced by a group of UN hack scientists who all make a living off government grants, either directly or indirectly. The latter was directed by Darren Aronofsky, an atheist who turned the biblical account of the flood brought about by God because of widespread immorality into a movie about man’s degradation of the environment.
The message in both this report and the movie is that “It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature.” The implication in the film is that man’s sin was disrespecting the planet and the movie gives us a taste of what is in store if we don’t shape up. Continue reading “The IPCC’s Global Warming Baloney and Noah (A new wave of Hot Air)”
To say that President Obama is unpopular these days is like saying the weather changes or garbage smells. It’s obvious.
Instead of garbage, it’s Obamacare that is stinking up the place and no amount of running away from the problem or burning 25,000 gallons of jet fuel can escape this disaster. Nevertheless Obama put 3,000 miles between himself and Washington, D.C., over the long President’s Day weekend traveling to my state of California on the eve of the fifth anniversary of his second biggest achievement, the Obama stimulus.
Did I mention that one smells too? Continue reading “When the Going gets Tough (The Tough get out of Town)”
“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Mark Twain
Does a leopard change its spots? Does a tiger change its strips?
Newt Gingrich is what you might call a striped leopard or a spotted tiger. When it comes to what some see as the impending doom of climate change, the former speaker of the House is trying to have it both ways.
On December 20, at a campaign stop in Iowa, he looked more like a deer than a leopard or tiger – a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle. When confronted by a woman who expressed concern about a chapter on climate change being written for his post election book on the environment by climate change apologist Katherine Hayhoe, Newt began backpedaling. “That’s not going to be in the book,” he said. “We didn’t know that they were doing that, and we told them to kill it.”
Ah, the proverbial “we.” Who are/is the we? The book’s editor, some unknown puppeteer who is out of sight pulling all the strings or Gingrich himself? Continue reading “Gingrich reignites Climate Change Controversy”
Earlier this month, in an interview with Matt Lauer, Barack Obama, lowered the standard for the nation’s chief of state when he used a vulgarity in an interview for the “Today Show.” Consumed with frustration over his inability to turn back the tide on the Gulf Coast, Barack Almighty delivered the now infamous line, “I want to know whose a – – to kick.” On Tuesday, he found one. No! He found two – the American people and the American economy.
In his Oval Office address to the nation, Obama was a cross between a slick politician and a bully.
Who is getting bullied? We are. Continue reading “Obama finds A– to Kick”
There she stands like a queen looking down on her subjects from the steps of her summer palace in San Francisco in her designer suits and her $300 haircut. Her aging skin is pulled tight from the latest nip and tuck from the royal cosmetic surgeon. If you look closely, that plastic smile has a hint of a sneer.
I couldn’t applaud when Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Just knowing that she is now third in line to the presidency makes my blood run cold. Continue reading “The Grinch who stole Prosperity”
