Yesterday I bravely reported on the James Taylor, Herman Munster John Kerry concert in France. (Somebody has to. God knows the American press won’t.) Tomorrow I will write about my undercover experience at the State Department. Today’s post will be devoted to the tragic aftermath in Paris. The panic. The rioting. The looting. The destruction. “Eet was like zee revolution” said one frightened Parisian. Zee people run. They flee! We set up barricades in the streets. We shoot. We sing patriotic songs. All to stop zee Hermun Munster from hugging us. If the sight of an aging American recording artist […]
Thousands of Frightened Parisians Flee Scene Of James Taylor Concert……Or This Is Too Good For Just One Post
It has been almost a month since I last wrote on Political Realities. This hiatus has not been because I haven’t been paying attention to what has been happening in the world. It is also not indicative of a lack of concern I feel for what I see going on. I simply have been busy taking care of other priorities, some of which have been neglected during the five plus years I have written this blog. That being said, some things can not be ignored. It is fitting that this next post is about the terror that seems to […]
Hat/Tip to Michael Wilner at The Jerusalem Post. The latest “talks” aimed at Iran abandoning it’s plans for obtaining nuclear weapons are nothing more than a sham. “Iran’s not being asked to dismantle the nuclear infrastructure,” the Israeli official said, having seen the proposal before the weekend. “Right now what they’re talking about is something very different. They’re talking about Ayatollah Khamenei allowing the P5+1 (the US, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) to save face.” It seems that the world community is only worried about not looking bad, instead of keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of […]
The Normandy invasions were so long and tediously prepared for, so intricate in design, so impossible to envision in the whole, or to envision having a chance of succeeding, that now 70 years later, without careful, thoughtful consideration with study of this most important of freedom crusades, we cannot comprehend it. Even with careful consideration, comprehension must surely be dim unless you were there. Reading of the sacrifices of those who perished and those who survived, is overwhelming. In mid-May, 2014, Michael Beschloss, writing for the New York Times, gives us a glimpse of what a D-Day anniversary was like […]
Categorize this under: There was a reason that the East Germans built a wall… It’s been said again and again-high taxes cause people to leave. And, no matter how many times it happens, liberals engage in the requisite outrage and condemnation for the problems that their own policies cause. For the latest example, we have to pay a visit to The Lid. Back in September when Bernard Jean Étienne Arnault the richest man in France applied for Belgian citizenship. Left-wing French newspaper Libération ran a picture of the head of LVMH with the headline, Casse-toi riche con! which (according to […]
Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi is a bad guy-and probably insane as well. He’s butchered his own people. His regime was implicated in the Lockerbie bombing (for which he eventually accepted responsibility). He makes rambling and incoherent speeches. He is accompanied by a bevy of hot Ukrainian nurses. In terms of playing the role of “insane dictator,” Gaddafi has done it all, and probably deserves some sort of lifetime achievement award for being a deranged leader. Then, enter the Obama administration. With socialists and radical Islamists engaging in the Tyrant Exchange Program, the “Arab Spring” soon found Gaddafi. True to form, he began brutally oppressing […]
On this date in 1944, Allied forced mad their landings in Normandy. It is still, and probably always will be, the largest amphibious invasion ever mounted. While the Third Reich had less than a year left, there was much bloody and brutal fighting left to go. To properly commemorate the sacrifice and efforts of the rapidly departing, “greatest generation,” here is some comments from Ronald Reagan. If any veterans are reading this, thank you for your service.
