How the Mighty Are Fallen


Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show with me and Brian O'Neil features a reflection on the unusually lively Academy Awards broadcast, in which Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage.  For Will Smith, it was the best of times (he won the best actor Oscar), and the worst of times (his violent outburst was widely condemned).  In addition, Brian and I discuss the campaign to delegitimize Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni, President Biden's boobery in Europe, the MSM's determination not to confront the Hunter Biden scandal, the saliency of the crime wave issue in American and New York State politics, and the progress (or lack thereof) of the January 6th Committee.

When it comes to "This Day in History", Brian and I speculate on what America and the world might have looked like had President Reagan succumbed to John Hinckley's assassination attempt in 1981.  Arguably, it wasn't just Reagan who "dodged the bullet" that fateful day!

Tune in today, and be enlightened!




In other news, if you think there's a border crisis now, just you wait!  The Biden Administration is brainstorming ways to increase the flow of "migrants" to unheard-of levels.  Who knows -- the cross-border invasion might even build to such a crescendo that ABC, NBC, and CBS mention it...briefly. 

Have you been yearning for Hillary Clinton and the Dems to be held accountable for the Trump-Russia hoax and the phony Steele Dossier (opposition research masquerading as "intelligence")?  Well, good luck to you, but you did get this teeny, tiny bit of vindication today...


Poland has been among the countries most stridently critical of Russia's invasion of Ukraine...probably because Poland thinks it could be next on Putin's "to do" list.  Even Poland, though, isn't proposing to stop importing Russian energy immediately.  It says it plans to do so by the end of the year.  A big help that will be to the Ukrainian people now! 

The latest developments at Disney underscore why every parent needs to stop visiting Disney's theme parks and patronizing its current "entertainment" programming.  Old Disney fare might be just fine, but the current iteration of Disney is simply beyond the pale.  It sees your children and grandchildren as fodder for neo-Marxist brainwashing.  Don't give Disney another red cent!!!


Finally, Biden's proposed budget is as woke as you'd expect it to be.  Among its priorities, in terms of "equity": we need to send a woman and a "person of color" to the Moon ASAP.  Now, don't confuse this with Hitler's proposed budget, which foresees sending ALL people of color to the Moon.  That's a whole different thing.  (Just thinking out loud, but couldn't we send KBJ to the Moon and leave her there?  She likes to be a trendsetter...) 


  1. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Execrable taste appears to be de riguer in stand up comedy in this ,ehh, unrestrained, time. As is so often the case with those who have no misgivings about debauching our culture , they are probers, always insinuating to see what they can get away with. Why I'll confirm that even 50 years we did enjoy comedy but some of it was confined to lockerrooms, dives and 8th grade study halls and denied broadcast venue. I know nothing about Chris Rock's humor but if he knowingly insulted a man's wife he deserved some summary comeupance.

  2. Dr. Waddy from Jack: Biden's generation of panic inducing misapprehension, producing frantic damage control, adds to the very plausible perception of him as one closely controlled in all matters by powers with their own agenda, for whom he fronts. Sanders Inc. I should think.

  3. Dr. waddy from Jack: Bush was an excellent wartime commander but would he have had Reagan's confidence that the Soviets needed to be shown that they would never best us militarily and to try would bankrupt them? We he have been as insolently "judgemental" as to publicly term the USSR an "evil empire". Reagan, St. John Paul II and Lech Walesa were the vital leadership triumvirate which did the impossible (short of WWIII). Sans any one of those three and it might not have manifested so miraculously, if at all.

  4. Jack, I would have to disagree that Chris Rock deserved what he got. I mean, sure, on some level virtually everyone in show business "deserves" to roast in hell for eternity, but what Chris Rock said at the Oscars was mean, but hardly untypical by modern comedic standards. Besides which, even if Smith was rightly offended, there were better ways (and venues) to vent his displeasure.

    Oh, I don't think for a moment that Bernie controls Sleepy Joe. It would be much more accurate to say that the people who control Biden also control Bernie (to a lesser extent). Bernie has been a good little soldier for the Dems -- always knowing his place.

    I agree! Bush, Sr. was a great man in many ways, but he would not have confronted the USSR nearly as aggressively. He was perhaps the ideal man to manage (sensitively) the Soviet Union's collapse, but that was a very different historical moment than what we faced in the early 80s.

  5. Dr.Waddy from Jack:To argue that Will Smith's onslaught was unseemly is plausible and creditable.Ukraine: Yipes: these Ukrainians are hombres! They remind me of Israel in 1948. I half expect see them march on Moscow! Good point on Sanders. Gads, I can just imagine who the ultimate handlers are! Someday we may bitterly rue the American left's shameful presence now in government's highest reaches. They MUST be democratically disenfranchised; perhaps a big step in that direction is at hand in November. Rock their world and then throw the big haymaker after two years of hobbling them. Well I wot me!

  6. Dr.Waddy from Jack: I agree with all you said about Bush; he was a good man and it was shameful that we picked a debauched draft dodging casually disingenuous low life over him! Ehh, your joke about Hitler's budget was hilariously "evil".

  7. Dr. Waddy from Jack: Traditional Disney is a national cultural treasure; it was one of the joys of my childhood and I still cherish it. Present day Disney has shamed itself beyond measure! It is a shill for the American hating left; like all American leftists and their obsequious corporate factoti, it is constantly and cynically testing the limits and this suggests much further outrage to come. Boycott of today's Disney does honor and affection to what Disney once was! Perhaps a common sense revival in this country could enable a neo good Disney restoration.

  8. Oh, I definitely think the Dems will be humbled after November, Jack, as they were after Trump's win in 2016. Unfortunately, these bouts of humility always seem to wear off after a few weeks. Then they get back to, err, the business at hand.

    So true, Jack: Disney has been a big part of our popular culture, and by and large a very wholesome and constructive part of it. It's beyond tragic the depths to which that once great entertainment empire has sunk!
