BOXING DAY in Dublin sounded fun. The Independent reports that 250 “youths”, in gangs, invaded Henry Street and went on “an orgy of violence”. Shoppers and passers-by were punched. Knives were pulled. We read that it’s something of a regular event actually, with these gangs coming in on weekends and holidays.
You have to go elsewhere to read that the 250 “youths” are something called “African Irish”, whatever that is.
Then you go back to the Independent’s story, you read the comments, and it seems to be true. Dublin is being gloriously enriched by these African Irish gangs, with their knives, who viciously punch the young and the old on Dublin’s streets. What a lucky town it is. What a beautiful, enriched future Ireland has in store.

In case you’re wondering why I haven’t been around that much this past week it’s because things have been hectic as we approach the wedding of our son. It’s a big moment for my family I can tell you and I will return early next week when celebrations are completed!

The President-elect is very upset with what he tweets is the dishonest media. Apparently they had the effrontery to publish that the U.S. and not Mexico will be paying for his Great Wall. The Dear Tweeter often gets angry when people point out discrepancies in his statements. Despite campaign insistence that Mexico would pay for it to be built he has now pivoted to they will pay later. Some unknown price. At some unknown date.
Imagine receiving an invoice in the mail for something you didn’t order.
Apparently we are paying for it now for “speed” purposes. As someone once said, Trump is not a dumb man. He is a smart man with a great understanding of what dumb people want.

WILL Obama disavow this?
Chicago police are investigating a video appearing to show a man tied up and assaulted while attackers shout ‘fuck Donald Trump’ and ‘fuck white people’
The attackers are black of course, and tortured a young white man, who apparently has mental problems, for a couple of days. I heard a BBC News report about this at lunchtime. It even featured a snippet of a police news conference on the incident, and not once did the BBC mention any race or Donald Trump.
You can bet that if four Trump supporters had tortured a black, broadcasting it live, that we’d now all about it. We’d know all about it, round the clock, for the next fifty years.

BEAUTIFUL news for a patriot and radio addict today. The news is that Sir Nigel Farage will be Leading Britain’s Conversation, hosting his own daily 7.00pm slot on LBC, starting Monday. Fantastic news, another patriot and capitalist to balance out all those broadcasting commies, and something interesting in the early evening instead of football previews on BBC 5Live.
I’ll be tuning in, and I know you will be too, on 97.3FM.

The Governor of my state of New York, a hideous creature known as Andrew Cuomo, is pushing through a measure to make all State Colleges free. What he never mentions is it is only free for the beneficiaries of his program. It is not free for the taxpayer.
Our state colleges are good, they are already substadized and the tuition for New York residents is quite modest. Frankly his plan not only imposes an added burden on the taxpayer, it removes the virtues of work, savings and effort from students putting themselves through school.
Cuomo’s plan has an income cap of 125k which reveals this is not need based but pure money grabbing. The state desperately needs resources allocated elsewhere for far more compelling reasons. Someone should tell him he is supposed to be the Governor, not Santa Claus.

The Israeli Defense Forces have convicted an Israeli soldier of manslaughter after he shot a suspected terrorist in Hebron. The facts are clear. Another Israeli soldier had been injured in a knife attack. Eleven minutes later, the convicted soldier came upon a wounded and subdued suspect, and shot him dead.
Some observations. First, while excessive force and even breaches of military code are not always met with prosecution, the IDF did the right thing in this instance. Hatred and passion are too raw on either side for me to believe a rational discussion could be had here. The Israel is always right contingent will likely deplore the conviction. The Israel is always wrong will likely not acknowledge it’s correctness (or more likely say but what about…).
There are important lines that should not be crossed, even when fighting terrorism. That distinction has long been lost on many. Civilization does not protect itself by abandoning laws. I am glad the Istaeli military tribunal, under significant and deplorable domestic pressure, recognized that fact.

This was inevitable.
Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed salary, NBC announced Tuesday afternoon.
I wish her well. She strikes me as a consummate professional. And the ultimate careerist.
