Truly, An Opportunity To Set Things Right!

Nah, They Do NOT Believe He Committed Suicide!

Americans aren’t buying that disgraced financier and convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in jail last weekend.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 29% of American Adults believe Epstein actually committed suicide while in jail. Forty-two percent (42%) think Epstein was murdered to prevent him from testifying against powerful people with whom he associated. A sizable 29% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Sixty-seven percent (67%) say they have closely followed news reports about Epstein, with 25% who have followed Very Closely.

He Broke All Attendance Records - Inside AND Out!

Oh, That Inconvenient Double Standard Again!

The Three Meanest Cities In America!

What are the three meanest cities in America?
Quick, what cities come to mind?
Are you thinking Detroit or Baltimore or Chicago or some other city that has a reputation for crime or poverty-plagued neighborhoods?
Well, think again!
The three meanest towns in America are bastions of power, money, influence, corruption and decadence. One is the center of power, one is the center of finance and the third is the center of imagery and glamour.
One is built on bald, gloating political might. One is built on on an endless thirst for money. And the third is built on pure pretense -- a shimmering world of illusion.
Now, you may have a  better idea what we're talking about. We're pointing to Washington, DC, New York and Hollywood. All three of these dubious capitals interact with one another to the extent that it suits their needs, but each jealously clings to its own vices.
In Washington, power is currency and there simply is no more powerful city on earth. Inside the beltway, there is an unbridled bloodlust directed at anyone  who would threaten the power of the privileged elite -- the people who are absolutely convinced that you fate lies solely in their hands. And if they are relentlessly brutal in their dealings with one another (and they are) then they are even more bare-knuckled when it comes to denying entry into their club to anyone who threatens their  power. Washington is no place for the faint of heart. Or, as President Harry Truman once said: "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."
In New York City everything (and pretty much everybody) has a price and the price is almost always higher than you think it is, and climbing all the time. Block by block and brick by brick the town was built on money from the Battery right up through the Bronx and into all the neighboring four boroughs as well. New York was, for a time, the nation's capital. But that wasn't enough for New York. Indeed, that was small change for a city that saw only one thing on the horizon -- big bucks. If you know how to generate huge quantities of shekels, you'll do well in New York. If not, the Big Apple will not only kick you to the curb, it will knock you all the way to Schenectady! And remember: when you leave New York, you ain't goin nowhere!
And then there's Hollywood, aka Tinseltown. This is the world's Dream Factory -- the place where all our dreams can come true if we're daring enough to believe in what Hollywood sells. The main commodity here is intense, sensual beauty -- preferably young, seductive and irresistible. Yes, it helps to have some talent, but in the end it's the sizzle not the steak that Hollywood trades in. Indeed, this is what the town pitches -- the suggestive, illusive aroma of pulchritudinous fulfillment. And if you think this is a genteel pursuit, just try to chart the misfortunes of those countless stars who succumbed to various addictions as well as the misadventures of those who never made it in the first place.
You've gotta be tough -- you've gotta have ice water in your veins -- to make it in any of these three centers of power. Just remember this when you're reading about the week's Biggest Star, latest Manhattan zillionaire or newest DC power broker.  And, keep this in mind, too: President Trump has conquered all three of these worlds: high finance (as a renowned real-estate developer), entertainment (as a TV powerhouse) and politics (as the leader of the free world).  Now, that's power!

The 'New Normal' For Dems? It's Chilling!

Wise words from Miranda Devine writing in the New York Post:
This is the new normal for Democrats: If you disagree with their agenda, you are a deplorable, a bigot, a racist, a white supremacist — and any retaliation is acceptable.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s true. Truth is whatever version of reality best suits your purpose.
Almost 63 million Americans voted for Trump, in part because they reject the leftist project to remake their history and their culture.
It is not rational or healthy to imagine you can intimidate them into not voting for him in 2020. But that is all the Democrats have.

Top Fed Law Enforcement Official Blasts Philly DA

Statement by United States Attorney William M. McSwain (pictured, right) on the shooting of six Philadelphia police officers:

What I witnessed last night was true heroism by the Philadelphia police. But the crisis was precipitated by a stunning disrespect for law enforcement - a disrespect so flagrant and so reckless that the suspect immediately opened fire on every single officer within shooting distance. Only by the grace of God did they survive.

Where does such disrespect come from?

There is a new culture of disrespect for law enforcement in this City that is promoted and championed by District Attorney Larry Krasner - and I am fed up with it.

It started with chants at the DA's victory party - chants of "F*** the police" and "No good cops in a racist system."

We've now endured over a year and a half of the worst kinds of slander against law enforcement - the DA routinely calls police and prosecutors corrupt and racist, even "war criminals" that he compares to Nazis.

This vile rhetoric puts our police in danger. It disgraces the Office of the District Attorney. And it harms the good people in the City of Philadelphia and rewards the wicked.

The alleged shooter last night, Maurice Hill, is a previously convicted felon with a long rap sheet. We have plenty of criminal laws in this City - but what we don't have is robust enforcement by the District Attorney. Instead, among other things, we have diversionary programs for gun offenses, the routine downgrading of charges for violent crime, and entire sections of the criminal code that are ignored.

The criminal laws in this City - and especially the existing gun laws and drug laws - should be aggressively enforced in order to protect the public and the police. My Office is doing all that we can. We have prosecuted 70% more violent crime cases this year than we did last year, in response to the District Attorney's lawlessness. But it is now time for the District Attorney and his enablers to stop making excuses for criminals. It is time for accountability. It is time to support law enforcement and to put the good people of this City first.

The U.S. Attorney's Office, in conjunction with the Philadelphia police and our federal partners, is investigating the horrible events of last night and we are considering all options at our disposal. We will do everything that we can to support our brothers and sisters in the Philadelphia Police Department and ensure justice is done.

To the officers involved last night - those who were wounded and those who rushed to defend them - and to their families, I say thank you. The whole City thanks you. We owe you more than we can ever repay.

A Reminder Of 'The Fragility Of Life' And . . .

A special message from Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput:

“In reflecting on violent acts in our country a short time ago, I remarked that we’d soon be on to the next crisis—and it unfolded right here in our city. Like many Philadelphians I watched the news with growing anxiety and sadness yesterday afternoon and evening as the number of police officers shot and injured continued to rise. It was a prolonged period of chaotic tension for the Philadelphia Police Department, first responders, and the residents of Tioga-Nicetown.

We should all be grateful for the daily self-sacrifice of our law enforcement community as well as the perseverance and professionalism of those who worked to bring yesterday’s standoff to an end without loss of life or further violence.  

In the aftermath, let’s pray that God will aid the swift recovery of the injured officers, that He will guide the hand of the medical professionals treating them, and that He will pour His comforting grace upon all those suffering burdens of fear and grief.

The terror that filled yesterday serves as a stark reminder not only of the fragility of life but also of the clear and present danger that illegal drugs and illegally obtained firearms pose to our community. In addition to our prayers, let’s work together toward sensible solutions that address the root causes of continued violence and seek to lift up those struggling with addictions.  

Let us resolve each day to treat our brothers and sisters with dignity, charity, and respect. May we all embrace that which is good so that the light of Christ will prevail in a world where evil often rears its head.”

+Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.
Archbishop of Philadelphia

Ban Them From Israel? Positively, YES!

Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein and ZOA Chairman Mark Levenson, Esq. released the following statement:

No nation should be required to admit persons – even if those persons are foreign government officials – if those persons pose a potential security risk, or seek to destroy or harm the host country, or are otherwise objectionable or inimical to the host country’s interests.

Thus, for instance, the United States properly denied admission to:
  • President of Austria and former Secretary General of the United Nations Kurt Waldheim, when Waldheim’s past as a Nazi official came to light after he was elected Austria’s president in 1986.
  • PLO Executive Committee member, propagandist and terror supporter Hanan Ashrawi(3 months ago).
  • Co-founder and leader of the antisemitic anti-Israel international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement to delegitimize and economically destroy Israel, Omar Barghouti(barred in April 2019) Barghouti expresses support for terrorism and openly calls for Israel’s destruction. 
Israel is absolutely correct to bar admission of Israelophobic Jew-haters Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. Tlaib and Omar seek Israel’s destruction, and are leading promoters of anti-Jewish anti-Israel BDS. They even outrageously compare boycotting Israel to boycotting Nazis – and introduced and co-sponsored introduced House Resolution 496 to promote BDS. Omar’s financial backers include top anti-Israel BDS leaders and Hamas supporters. Tlaib’s associates include Hezbollah-backer and anti-Israel Al Awda head Abbas Hamideh. A study documented that Tlaib publicly praised 18 colleagues who are close associates of Palestinian terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands, for helping Tlaib to win office. Omar even demanded that a judge should show compassion towards and reduce the sentences of convicted ISIS terrorists – and much more. (Also see “ZOA Applauds Israel for Refusing Entry of Israelophobic Jew-Haters Tlaib and Omar,” Aug. 15, 2019.)

Those Glorious, Unheralded Joys Of August!

August is sort of the forgotten month.
Stuck somewhere between the 4th of July (everyone's favorite summer holiday) and the nondescript Labor Day, August often gets lost in the shuffle.

It's the month that the year barely recognizes.

If you haven't taken your vacation by the middle of August (bout now) you may almost be out of luck since many people have already booked the last two weeks of August in the hopes of squeezing all they can out of summer's last full month. If you're working every day in August, (especially in the city) things may seem quite lonely and even barren

And August is also a long month with some of the hottest weather imaginable, which can make August afternoons seem interminably long, even while summer appears to fly by in a wink. 

Poor August. It has no real identity and apparently nothing to distinguish it.

But August is a wonderful month -- a month that simply does not get enough attention and is wrongly unheralded.

Here are ten reasons to love August:

1) The month has no holidays -- no special days that you need worry about. So, in August every day is special and every day belongs to you. And that's particularly true for today which is a VERY special ay for me!

2) Lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. August invites you to linger. Indeed, the summer heat of August compels you to linger. Stretch out, gaze, daydream - do whatever you want!

3) Fresh sweet corn, tomatoes and peaches. All are at their peak in August and all are wonderful!

4) Julius Caesar. The great Roman emperor extended our summer by adding two days to August in 753 BC. Now, August has 31 wonderful days!

5) The Perseids, a spectacular meteor shower which lights up the August sky peaked earlier this week. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky in the northern hemisphere.

6) The ocean water temperature which warms in August and becomes about as inviting as it's gonna be all summer. At the Jersey shore right now it's in the 70s! Wonderful!

7) Go Topless Day on August 25th. What? You didn't know about this? It's about as frivolous a commemoration as you can imagine. And don't forget the Philly Naked Bike Ride on August 24th!

8) The fearless lion and the sun. Most August birthdays are blessed to be part of the most regal sign of the zodiac, Leo. Those born under Leo take the Lion as their mascot and rule as natural born leaders. Their planet is the sun.

9) Red, yellow and orange. The incadescent colors of August. Check out all the fresh produce!

10) Augustus, the founder of the Roman empire who ruled from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD. The reign of Augustus initiated an era of peace known as Pax Romana. Were it not for Augustus, August would still be known as Sextilis, it's original name. Hey, we told you this was a sexy month. Enjoy!

Wait For It: Refers To HIMSELF As 'Fredo'

OK For Someone To Use The Word On His Show?

Let's get this straight.

"Fredo" is an offensive slur that should not be used EXCEPT if you use it against Donald Trump, Jr. on Chris Cuomo's own show. THEN, it's OK to slur someone as the "dumb brother." OK?

OMG! F - edo In Wild, Threatening, Profanity-Laced Meltdown! Video Here

Warning: the following is filled with profanity.
It's CNN-anchor Chris Cuomo pretending to defend Italian-Americans while playing into the worst sort of thuggish, punish, crude and disgraceful Italian-American.
Every Italian-American (indeed, every ethnic American) should take offense at this -- not because of the word "Fredo" (which is not an obvious ethnic slur) but because of the way Chris Cuomo, a supposedly responsible public person behaves. And Cuomo reportedly behaved this way in front of his wife and child.
Italian-Americans have achieved so much and come such a long way and moved so far from this sort of behavior that for Chris Cuomo to act in such a way and reinforce a stereotype that we've worked so hard to erase -- well, it's shameful. It's shameful and unforgivable!
