Night After Night

 

Sunday Last night, as is usual, I went out to Mr Chow for dinner. It was packed, as usual. My favorite Irish waiter, James the Flirtatious, whirled around with his magic of bringing Diet Coke just when it’s needed. And by the way, what a miracle Diet Coke happens to be. It’s always delicious. Never […]

Gosnell: A Must, Must, Must See Movie

 

Saturday Run. Don’t walk. If you care about abortion. If you care about the precious innocence of the hundreds of thousands of unborn babies — and especially BORN babies — murdered every year by the abortionists. If you care about the sanctity of life. RUN DON’T WALK to see “The Gosnell Movie,” as I call […]

But Seriously

 

As my loyal readers know by now, my wife is not in good health. She stays in bed almost all day, often with her old hubby lying next to her snoozing away. But at about 10 at night, we usually take out our DVDs and watch documentaries about World Wars I and II and the […]

Democrats, Call Off Your Dogs

 

I just don’t get it. I don’t understand how this whole business with Brett Kavanaugh should have descended to such depths. Here we have a man who was and is a top notch legal scholar. Unimpeachable judicial credentials. Yale Law School (where I also went). Not a blemish against him. Family man. Friends to all […]

Stalin Would Approve

 

Herewith a few terrifying thoughts about the left’s attacks on Brett Kavanaugh. First, we have entered a genuinely Stalinist world in which all it takes is an accusation from the favored clique, in this case, “progressive” women, to wreck an honest man’s career. There is no trial on facts or law any longer. As others […]

God Bless Judge Kavanaugh

 

Friday So. The hearings of the Democrats versus Trump. Any trick. Any sneering innuendo. Any vile trick will do to try to upset Judge Kavanaugh. My favorites are the idiotic sniping by our California Senator “Kamala” Harris. She’s trying to “trap” Judge K. into saying he either met or did not meet with some unnamed […]

What Mazie Doesn’t Know

 

Los Angeles, Wednesday My life here is just amazing. I usually get up at about 6 a.m. I check my emails and look out at the swimming pool. Now, just think about it. Someone had to invent plastic, which is what my phone is made of. Then someone had to make the plastic. Then someone […]

From Lavrenti Beria to Lanny Davis

 

Now here’s something terrifying that’s swinging into action in a big way: the Deep State with dictatorial, unlimited prosecutorial powers. The Deep State is the permanent government of high powered bureaucrats. The most dangerous of these are federal and state prosecutors who can turn a man’s life upside down (woman’s, too) and make life not […]

The Lessons of All Eternity and Especially the Last Few Days…

 

Sex is an awesome power. You can try to dam it up and deny it. It won’t work any more than a first grader’s magnet will reverse the magnetic fields of Planet Earth. It won’t work for cunning hillbillies from Hope or big baller builders from Queens or priests from Harrisburg. Try whatever you like. […]

A Few Notes on Donald Trump’s Terrible Tuesday

 

First: Do not — repeat not — trust your lawyers. My hero, RN, was done in largely by his awful lawyer, John Wesley Dean. Despite the fidelity lawyers are supposed to feel towards their clients, John Dean betrayed Nixon, the Peacemaker, horribly. Now Mr. Trump is under attack from his own awful lawyer, Mr. Cohen. […]
