Crazy Times, Crazy People

One of the many things that has gone missing in America is a sense of standards. I first became aware of this decades ago when white firemen sued their home towns for ignoring objective tests for promotion by tipping the scales in favor of blacks.

One of the many things that has gone missing in America is a sense of standards. I first became aware of this decades ago when white firemen sued their home towns for ignoring objective tests for promotion by tipping the scales in favor of blacks.

Soon, the same type of favoritism was being applied by colleges when blacks and Latinos were gaining admission ahead of better white and Asian students.

Here in L.A., height standards for police officers were tossed out because female and Latino applicants often fell short. The belief had been that taller cops were more likely to intimidate criminals. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do know that if women and Latinos were taller than white men, nobody would have changed the height requirements in order to accommodate them.


Black women are five times likelier than white women to have abortions. To which I say, shame on black women. But more shame on black men, most of whom refuse to man-up and marry the women they’ve impregnated.

Even when abortion isn’t on the table, 70% of the kids are growing up in homes without fathers. Should anyone really be surprised that the boys are growing up undisciplined, far more likely to end up in prison than to wind up being educated and with the ability to earn an honest living?


Crazy Mazie Hirono, the ditzy senator from Hawaii, gleefully reported that she’d asked 8th graders if they thought the government should be telling women that they can’t have abortions and not a single student thought the government had that right.

For my part, I think the ignoramus should be kept out of 8th grade classrooms unless it’s for the purpose of taking remedial English.


It’s possible that Sen. Hirono is simply guilty of taking the New York Times far more seriously than anyone should. It was, after all, the rag formerly known as the paper of record that recently ran a headline that read: “Pregnancy Kills, Abortions Save Lives.”

It’s reminiscent of the first chapter of George Orwell’s “1984,” in which Big Brother’s slogans were listed: “War is Peace,” “Freedom is Slavery” and “Ignorance is Strength.”

Today, it’s the Democrats who have adopted these slogans as their own.


The fact that Peter Buttigieg has been focusing most of his rage on Mike Pence, not Donald Trump, strongly suggests that at least subconsciously he is campaigning in the hope of winding up as someone’s vice presidential running mate.


It seems that John Walker Lindh, who was nicknamed the American Taliban after being captured in Afghanistan where he had waged war against American soldiers, has been granted early release after serving 17 years of a 20-year sentence.

This in spite of the fact that he has never shown remorse for killing Americans on the battlefield and has, moreover, continued to advocate on behalf of Islamic terrorism.

It led John Sarantos to send me a two panel cartoon. In the first panel, a government official is telling the traitor: “Now that you’ve been released from prison, you’ll need to find a job accepting of your extremist views.”

In the second panel, the schmuck is looking straight ahead and saying: “I’m John Walker Lindh and this is CNN.”

Perhaps it’s the folks connected to the Federal Bureau of Prisons who should be locked up.


But not every miscarriage of justice is carried out at the federal level.

After two members of MS-13 stabbed and tortured a young girl to death, it was discovered that the same two illegal aliens had been arrested a few years ago for attempting to murder someone else, but the local officials in Prince George County, Maryland, decided not to turn them over to federal authorities.

The question is how much longer are President Trump and Attorney General Barr going to continue to allow states and cities to ignore federal law before they begin arresting scofflaw governors, mayors, judges and police officials.


It’s never a big shock when a left-wing politician is shown to be a hypocrite, but it nevertheless always calls for full disclosure. So when Sen. Kamala Harris constantly announces on the campaign trail that when she’s in the Oval Office she will demand that employers pay their male and female employees the exact same salaries, nobody should be too surprised that she means employers who are not named Kamala Harris.

It seems that she pays men more than women both in her Senate office and those working on her campaign.


It turns out that Stormy Daniels was being royally screwed. Not by Donald Trump, but by her own lawyer. It seems she was being reamed by none other than Michael Avenatti, dubbed “the creepy porn lawyer” by Tucker Carlson.

On top of all the other criminal charges he stands accused of, Avenatti pocketed half the $800,000 she was paid by a book publisher by forging her signature.

This is the same sleazebag who was being turned into a mythical folk hero who was half Robin Hood, half Jack the Giant Killer, for no other reason by CNN and MSNBC than that he could be counted upon to insult the President every time he appeared on TV.

They were even promoting him as a presidential candidate.

Of course now that he stands to go to prison for 404 years, that might have to be the campaign of 2424.


Joe Neuner has let me know that Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing outfit in the U.S. was sold to China. The hogs will still be raised here but slaughtered and packaged in China.

The same thing is happening with chickens.

When the meat products are then sold in our supermarkets and peddled to schools and fast food restaurants, they will be labeled “Raised in the USA.”

Just keep in mind when you go shopping, these are the same folks who were peddling dog food that was killing our pets not that long ago.

So far as I can tell, when it comes to eating food processed in that godforsaken country, you’re running roughly the same risk of being poisoned as the homeless who go dumpster-diving for their next meal.


Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez now claims that she was only joking when she predicted the world’s end by 2030, and that only stupid people took her seriously, but that we should still implement her Green New Deal for the greater good. Patrick Miano voiced skepticism. “She sounded pretty serious to me.”

To me, as well, especially when she kept repeating her “joke.”

Mr. Miano surmises that the woman is “drunk with her own celebrity. I wonder if she would get so much attention if she were fat, old, ugly or a man.”

I replied: “My guess, based on the amount of attention that Bernie Sanders receives, is that she would.”


As long as I’m warning you folks to avoid chicken and pork processed in China, I might as well warn you what the Bank of America has been up to.

It seems that the bank, which you’d think would go out of its way to avoid controversy, has not only contributed $50,000 to Planned Parenthood, but also participated as a corporate sponsor of a Planned Parenthood event where Hillary Clinton was presented with something called the “Champion of the Century” award.

You might wish to consider keeping your money in your mattress. After all, your mattress will pay you roughly the same amount of interest.


After Cher tweeted: “I understand helping struggling immigrants but my city [Los Angeles] isn’t taking care of its own. What about 50,000-plus citizens who live on the streets and those people who live below the poverty line? If L.A. can’t take care of its own (many are vets), how can it take care of more?”

The surprise is that the proud Never-Trumper was capable of expressing so much commonsense and that the high school dropout didn’t make any spelling mistakes.

What wasn’t the least bit surprising is that when her tweet was applauded by Conservatives and viciously attacked by her fellow Hollywood pinheads, she quickly deleted the message.
