We could use a little
´Chico Escuela´ these days

American Thinker, by Silvio Canto, Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/15/2018 12:15:47 AM

A few days ago, I read that Garrett Morris turned 87 in February. Back in the late 1970s, Garrett Morris was on the Saturday Night Live cast. He played various roles and developed quite a following. His career took off one Saturday night in November 1978. This is when he played Chico Escuela, a New York Mets outfielder from the Dominican Republic. Mets outfielder from the Dominican Republic. Chico became famous for one-liners: "Thank you berry much. Baseball been berry, berry good to me. Thank you. God bless you. Gracias!" He followed that up with another great line: "Keep you eye...keep you eyes...on de ball."

Once SNL lost the original cast, the show went kaput.

As Pelosi increasingly
incoherent in public, Dems
face a battle over leadership succession
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 7/15/2018 11:30:14     Post Reply
Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority. Kyle Olsen of The American Mirror red flags Pelosi’s latest lapse into incoherence at a podium. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi suffered

The Washington Post disgraced itself again, this time by making up a quote by U.S. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, and after getting called out about it, promising to correct it ... and then, not correcting it, at least, not until Haley had to get after them to keep their promises, just as their mothers must have had to get them to make their beds. Get a load: U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley demanded on Saturday that a Washington Post reporter “retract” his claim that she said there were 250,000 U.S. citizens living in poverty.

Sometimes, photos shock the conscience. Such as this one, from a little town in northeast Venezuela called Cantaura, posted on Twitter by a young Venezuelan woman, Stephanie Nogales: Nogales, who posted it, says it is real. Which is why it´s so shocking. How could this exist? How could someone be so alone and forsaken and without food? That there is actually someone in our hemisphere who walks the earth in that emaciated condition, brought on by weeks and weeks of no food, a living skeleton, so utterly impoverished of flesh and clothes it´s impossible to tell if the person is a

For Trump, Failure Is the Only Option
New York Times, by Paul Krugman    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 7/13/2018 7:22:46     Post Reply
So Donald Trump went to a NATO summit, insulted our allies, then made the absurd demand not just that they increase defense spending — which they should — but that they raise it to 4 percent of G.D.P., much higher than the bloated military spending in his own budget. He then claimed, falsely, to have won major concessions, and graciously declared that it is “presently unnecessary” to consider quitting the alliance. Was there anything our allies could have done that would have mollified him? The answer, surely, is no. For Trump, disrupting NATO doesn’t seem to be a means to an

Starbucks´ Straw Ban Won´t

Corporate Correctness: Starbucks won raves from environmentalists for its ban on straws. But while a strawless Starbucks won´t do anything to help the environment, it will discriminate against the disabled. Virtue signaling can be a tricky business. Under pressure from environmentalists, the coffee giant says that it will replace plastic straws with sippy-cup style lids at all of its stores by 2020. The company isn´t the first to do so, although it is the biggest. Hilton and Marriott hotels said they´re removing plastic straws at many of their hotels. American Airlines said it will get rid of plastic straws starting

Katherine Kealoha’s boyfriend
pleads guilty to conspiracy
and agrees to cooperate
Honolulu Star-Advertiser, by Nelson Darangciang    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 7/13/2018 4:03:04     Post Reply
Hawaii County Fire Department Battalion Chief Jesse Michael Ebersole pleaded guilty in federal court this afternoon to conspiring with deputy prosecutor Katherine Kealoha to lie about their affair to a federal grand jury and has agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of Kealoha and her husband, retired Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha. Ebersole, 49, faces a maximum five-year prison term for conspiracy. Because federal prosecutors are relying on his cooperation to prosecute the Kealohas, Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Beste asked U.S. District Chief Judge J. Michael Seabright to sentence Ebersole in April. The government claims that Katherine Kealoha spent more than $20,000

It is virtually an iron law that mature bureaucracies turn their focus from the ostensible mission to self-preservation and aggrandizement of the bureaucrats. One side benefit of President Trump´s attendance at the NATO Summit has been the opportunity to view the huge and lavish new headquarters building the organization proudly opened a couple of months ago. John Roberts of Fox News tweeted out his reaction to the vast atrium-like lobby that the new building sports: For its part, NATO has proudly published a series of photographs of the vast edifice, noting that it facilitates what all government bureaucracies do: consult with

The dreck about Trump ending democracy

Swamp regular Admiral James Stavridis has taken his best shot at addressing a phony issue: whether "democracy" is dying, killed off by President Trump, presumably, by offering reassuring words to the left and the Washington establishment about its durability in a cover essay in Time. Axios has the write-up and a photo of the cover. I suppose a lot of them are going to take grim satisfaction from it, given the level of hysteria on the left about President Trump´s very existence. But it rather too cutely frames a canard. The left, including Time magazine, seems all in for the idea that

Her mind wandering and her words not coming out right, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, 78, is sounding more addled than ever, unable to express any clear line of thought. This is consequential if you are a Democrat, because she utterly refuses to step aside as leader of her party. In fact, she´s convinced everyone loves her. Look at this landscape of apparent dementia, based on her hour-long interview with Rolling Stone. Asked about her leadership and the pressure from Democrats for her step down, Pelosi replied: I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist side – although I wouldn´t normally say that. Except it´s like,

Royal family ´snub´ Trump: Prince Charles and

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the investigation of possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign testified under oath in a congressional hearing on Thursday that FBI agents can engage in some types of adultery. Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above or below them, which is inappropriate or not allowed by regulation, I would

Meghan Markle‘s smile is hiding fear, stress and the pressure of adjusting to her new royal duties, her father said in an interview published Sunday. “I think she is terrified,” Thomas Markle told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.” “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now,” he added. “This is a pained smile.”The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, is struggling to cope with the transition from TV actress to a member of the royal

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Michelle Obama has been spotted letting loose at Beyonce and Jay-Z´s concert in Paris with the former First Lady dancing up a storm. Mrs Obama and her 17-year-old daughter Sasha were among the famous faces in the crowd as they watched the power couple take to the stage for their On the Run II tour on Sunday night. Michelle and Sasha were snapped in the stands at the Stade de France by several excited fans before Beyonce and Jay-Z took to the stage.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Moscow - When President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia sits down with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday for a meeting he has long wanted, he will already have accomplished virtually everything he could reasonably hope for. All he really needs to make his meeting with Mr. Trump a success is for it to take place without any major friction — providing a symbolic end to Western efforts to isolate Russia over its actions against Ukraine in 2014, its meddling in the United States election in 2016 and other examples of what the United States Treasury Department has described as Russia’s “malign activity” around the
