“Christine Blasey may have been sexually assaulted, he said, but not by him, adding that he intended no ill will to her or her family. ‘The other night Ashley and my daughter Liza said their prayers, and little Liza—all of ten years old—said to Ashley, ‘We should pray for the woman.’ That’s a lot of wisdom from a ten-year-old. We mean no ill will,’ he said, choking up. The hearing room was full of people crying. Kavanaugh’s parents were there to support him and could barely maintain their composure. Watching their anguish over their only son’s ordeal was brutal for the other members of Kavanaugh’s team.” — Justice Brett Kavanaugh, from Justice on Trial, by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino

The last thing that most of us would wish for is to re-experience that moment when we watched the devastation that the Democrats tried to inflict on the life of Brett Kavanaugh. When he choked up, I felt tears in my eyes. My heart ached for him, for his family and friends and even for the country. How had we come to this moment?

As the Three Queens of the Orient have been speaking out against the status quo, they are making themselves known. You know them: Ilhan Omar from Somalia, Rashida Talib whose family came from Palestine, and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. Oh, you say AOC isn’t an Orient Queen. Well, let’s not quibble; I’m sure her friends would be […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Racism Is Alive and Well

 

Saying that black Americans can’t be racist because they are an oppressed group has never been acceptable to me. You only need to look at the history of the Black Hebrew Israelites to realize that racism against white people not only exists, but it is overt, ugly and frightening. This is the group that harassed the teenagers at the March for Life.

Glenn Beck did some research on the Black Hebrew Israelites group:

The outpouring of love and support for Jews following the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings has deeply touched me. I’m not surprised by it, but the reminder of the inclusiveness in our community is one more tribute to Ricochet. In one of the many posts I read, someone asked, “Why have the Jews always been treated this way?” It may have been a rhetorical question, but I took it at face value and decided to share my views about the reasons for anti-Semitism.

It’s important to say at the start that there is no way to provide every explanation for anti-Semitism:

I’m not surprised that we’ve awakened to a gray, rainy day. Everything feels heavy and burdensome. It mirrors the dark mood that rests beneath the ordinariness of life. As I’ve tried to tune in to the beauty of another day, it is cloaked in sorrow and dread. Today we leave for Daytona Beach. Unfortunately it’s […]

It was pathetic. The Dems were so determined to demonstrate their hatred of Trump that they just had to act like fools to make their point. I so appreciated the camera regularly showing them sitting on their hands, reluctantly clapping or standing because they didn’t know how to behave: should I clap for that point […]

In They Hate Your Guts (just-arrived issue of The Weekly Standard) P.J. O’Rourke nails the difference between us’n and them. Maybe there’s more to say, but not much, and there is something wrong with you if you don’t laugh at his descriptions of our current candidates, especially, but not limited to, Jindal. Trigger Warning: It may hurt […]
