Yes, it’s true that the Obama administration has been intruding more and more into the private lives of our citizens, with electronic surveillance and the like, but don’t blame them. They are just picking up where George W. Bush left off. They don’t really want to impinge on the civ… Read full post »
THE FOLLOWING TRANSCRIPT OF AN OVAL OFFICE CONVERSATION WAS PROVIDED BY A SOURCE WITHIN THE WHITE HOUSE. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN JAY CARNEY, WHO DISPUTES ITS AUTHENTICITY, AND SPECIFICALLY DENIES THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS EVER BEEN IN THE OVAL OFFICE.
THE PRESIDENT: Come in, Susan,… Read full post »
The following is the first chapter of my recently published novel, The Little Champ, which is written in the form of a fictitious memoir by a real-life boxing champion of a century ago. I offer it as an example of what I do when I am not haranguing liberals on Open… Read full post »
Richard Nixon may have been the first certifiable paranoid to occupy the White House. Remember the White House “enemies list?” I consider this pertinent because there was a period during my early days in New York when I kept bumping into him. We never exchanged any conversation, but I cou… Read full post »
“He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in vi… Read full post »
Six months ago, I posted an article here predicting that the coverup of the true facts in the Benghazi massacre could lead to the downfall of President Obama. I didn't expect him to be impeached and convicted of high crimes and misdemeanors, but I speculated that when the truth came out,… Read full post »
I went out on the street this morning, and to the first stranger
I met I said, “I’m straight.”
He looked me up and down, evidently taking note of my slouching posture, and said: “You don’t look straight to me. Try lifting your chin, pulling in your stomach… Read full post »
The father of the Tsarnaev brothers was interviewed in Russia, and an aunt was interviewed in Canada. Both of them claimed that the boys were framed, that this whole thing was a setup.
They may not know it, but they have set the table for the conspiracy theorists at Open Salon.… Read full post »
Well, it COULD happen.
It has been more than 124 years since the serial killer known as Jack the Ripper roamed the dark streets of Whitechapel, in East London, killing prostitutes. Not merely killing them, but also – in most cases – disemboweling them and sometimes carrying away their vital organs. A nasty dude… Read full post »
THE PRESIDENT’S SECRETARY ENTERS THE OVAL OFFICE
SECRETARY: Sir, the chief demographer of the United States is here.
PRESIDENT: Show him in.
DEMOGRAPHER: Mr. President, I…
PRESIDENT: Be quick about it. I still have to finish writing my speech for tonight, ordering all registered Republ… Read full post »
I dislike indulging in self-promotion, but I have never been able to find anyone else who would do it for me.
So it is with shameless effrontery that I announce the publication of my latest book, a novel about a boxer, entitled "The Little Champ."
Let me assure those of you… Read full post »
Did Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a likely Republican contender for president in 2016, destroy his political career by taking a sip of water on national television? CNN and some of the other slavishly Democratic-liberal news outlets seem to think so – or at least hope so.
Rubio was giving… Read full post »
Let’s face it, there is an early amendment to the Constitution that simply has to go in this modern day and age. It is an amendment that has permitted the commission of heinous acts and led to innumerable deaths. It ought to be repealed. Let it go,… Read full post »
I am getting sick of hearing Republicans moaning about how their party has grown out of touch and irrelevant, how President Obama’s narrow victory in the 2012 election demonstrates that the world has passed the GOP by, how the chances of a GOP victory in 2016 and even… Read full post »
After my first marriage broke up, I spent fourteen years as a
bachelor in Manhattan before getting married again.
Naturally, I made full use of this extraordinary opportunity. I dated numerous women, and in perhaps seven instances things went far enough that one party or the other started talking… Read full post »
What’s this hooey about Barack Obama winning a mandate to impose his economically destructive agenda on the American people? It’s understandable that the Democrats and their media lap dogs would try to propagate such hogwash, especially at a time when we are careening toward the so-ca… Read full post »
Political scandals come, and political scandals go, but they all smell the same.
I am going way out on a limb here, and predicting that President Obama will be forced to resign from office before the end of his second term because of Benghazi-gate, just as one of his… Read full post »
(SCENE: The Oval Office)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thanks for stopping by, Hillary. As a courtesy, I wanted to let you know that I have accepted the resignation of General David Petraeus as director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
HILLARY CLINTON: Oh, that’s wonderful! You may recall that he and… Read full post »
The National Basketball Association has just begun a new season, and according to league officials 75 percent of the 450 players on the 30 team rosters are black. That shouldn’t surprise anyone who follows basketball. Black players have dominated the NBA for decades.

THE SCENE: A rural farmhouse. It is daytime, and a light drizzle is falling. There is a knock at the door. The farmer opens the door.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I’m President Obama, and I’m here to help you. I have personally taken charge of all emergency activities… Read full post »
Jeb Bush, who seems destined to be the only member of his family never to serve as President of the United States, says that the Republican party can’t survive if it continues to be perceived as a bunch of “old, white guys.”
He’s been saying that for… Read full post »
In the wake of the vice presidential debate Thursday night, I watched a gaggle of so-called journalists on network TV gibbering about the way Joe Biden “dominated” his GOP opposite number, Paul Ryan. Yes, the old screwball dominated the debate in the same sense that someone who pulls… Read full post »
I lived for seventeen consecutive years in Manhattan. This despite the fact that a good friend of mine, who used to avoid New York City because he considered it too anarchic, pointed out to me that whenever anyone anywhere in the world got angry at anyone else, he would set off… Read full post »
The first presidential debate is over, and guess what: The money boys suddenly are looking at Mitt Romney with respect. On Intrade, the Irish-based futures market that allows you to bet legally on political races, the value of contracts favoring Romney over President Obama began shooting up… Read full post »
