The First Battle of 2020: de

Welcome to 2020! Now that we're finally out of the 2010s -- the decade that our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters have described as "bad" and "terrible" and "make the hurting stop, Mommy" -- we've all been given a chance at a fresh start. As we stride purposefully into the new decade, older but wiser, battle-worn but hopeful, each day is another chance to get it right. This is a perfect opportunity to leave the past in the past. It's time to start working toward becoming our best selves. But it ain't gonna happen overnight. Some of us are still stuck on stupid,

Warren Wilhelm thinks Domino's charges too much. Well, Your Eminency, there's always Little Caesar's pizzapizza, generally with the cheapest ingredients.

Some body pointed out to Mayor Wilhelm the Idiot that one of the independent-Manhattan pizzerias charges $27 for a two-topping pizza on a regular day. Maybe Mayor Wilhelm the Idiot can pass a law that prohibits hotels and other businesses from charging higher rates during special events and require the pro teams playing in New York to keep beer down to $3. In the words of that great philosopher, Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon!"

I have a major bone to pick with Domino's, involving their pizza delivery commercial with its loud generic doorbell sound. About half the homes in America, including mine, have similar sounding doorbells, a sound that is absolutely guaranteed to rip my attention away from whatever I was doing before, and it's an unacceptable intrusion. If any Domino's Board members happen to read this thread, they should know better than to bother potential customers with false doorbell sounds. Somebody at corporate wasn't thinking.

If criminals can't even be put in prison for killing police animals or clubbing people over their heads, what possible punishment can NY foist upon a pizza place for being expensive?

Legitimate pizza eaters in New York City know that de Blasio is a phony when it comes to pizza, as he has been videoed eating his pizza with a fork and knife, and that is not the way pizza is eaten there. In New York City, at least when I have been there, the way to eat pizza has always been to fold the slice and eat it without tools.

It is obvious that the majority of New York City residents are not comfortable making daily life-function decisions on their own. Thank goodness they have a Mayor who delights in making those decisions for them. Were it not the case, they would put their own health in peril by ordering a 32-ounce soft drink. Thanks, Bill. Unfortunately for de Blasio, the real Americans in flyover country don't see his brand of "leadership" as being of value.

After his second term in office DJT should return to the city he loves and Make New York City great again! The funniest line in the article is 'I wouldn't pay 30 cents for a Dominoes pizza!' If you're a New Yorker, or have even been to NYC, and EVER had the opportunity to eat a slice pretty much anywhere, you know you could never compare that with Dominoes. NEVER!

So DeBlasio expects the pizza to be regular price on the busiest night of the year, hand delivered into Times Square among a million people. He probably expects them to honor their "on-time guarantee" also. If he is mad about pizza, is he also mad at all of the hotels and bars that raise their prices for New Years Eve? Hotels in Manhattan are a lot more expensive on New Years eve than they are on other nights. The same goes for bar drink prices.

Wolf sent a memo within the department requesting "a department-wide study on how the laws affect its enforcement efforts."

Ever since it was discovered that several armed churchgoers drew their weapons to stop a gunman at a church in Texas last week, the anti-gun mainstream media types have been trying to tell the public that armed, law-abiding citizens are a bad thing. The New Year's Day installment of media malpractice hyperbole arrives courtesy of the nauseatingly leftist USA Today: "@USATODAY Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he's a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that's terrifying."

It was a position Jack Wilson said he hoped no one would ever have to be in. Wilson was one of the congregants who shot and killed a man Sunday after the man opened fire in a church near Fort Worth, Texas. Out of everything that happened, there is one moment Jack Wilson keeps replaying. "Probably Richard [White] getting shot, and knowing at that point, as the shooter turned toward Tony [Wallace], that this is gonna happen," said Wilson. The gunman has been identified as 43-year-old Keith Thomas Kinnunen of River Oaks. Kinnunen shot two people before he was killed in the Sunday morning attack

There have been several times in modern history when political idealists have set out to remake the world. The French Revolution in 1792, for example, attempted to redefine time: "When people who study the French Revolution read about the Uprising of Vendémiaire or the Insurrection of 12 Germinal An III, most simply scratch their heads and wonder, Vendémiaire? Germinal? An III? What's that all about? Few ever bother to learn what these dates mean. In fact, they are part of the French Republican Calendar, aka Revolutionary Calendar, which replaced the Gregorian Calendar in France from 1793 to 1805."

The reason why public business should be conducted in the open, according to Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times, is that abuse and conspiracy thrive in the dark. "Civil rights advocates have been warning for years that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the entire Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act system of issuing secret warrants are rife with potential for abuse; are handovers of powers to secret sources that better belong in the hands of duly elected and appointed judges conducting business in open court; and are flagrantly, blatantly unconstitutional.

By 2017 it was obvious that the 20th century institutions were reeling under the impact of the information revolution. The old hierarchies and the authority they had wielded from prestige, authority and celebrity were, if not in a state of collapse, at least badly degraded. The leak of secrets showed how incompetent and mendacious the elites were and the MeToo and Jeffrey Epstein affairs demonstrated how venal.

Maybe we should be afraid of the growing level of political incivility. The Hill quotes president Trump as suggesting that what comes around goes around. "And I tell you what, someday there will be a Democrat president and there will be a Republican House, and I suspect they're going to remember it," Trump said. Rep. Will Hurd put it more prosaically. Politico says "the Texas Republican is concerned impeachment will be used as a weapon against future presidents, just like voting on new Supreme Court justices."

What Democrats once hoped would be a bipartisan act — only the third time in U.S. history the House will be voting to impeach a president — is now on track to be a starkly partisan roll call Wednesday. No Republicans are breaking with the president, and almost all Democrats are expected to approve the charges against him. A raucous town hall Monday in the

Revolutionary Guard General Qassem Soleimani, the powerful head of Iran's elite Quds Force, has been killed in an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport, Iraqi TV and three Iraqi officials officials said Friday. The officials said the strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, which were responsible for the recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. An official with the PMF blamed the U.S. military for the strike. 'The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani,' said Ahmed al-Assadi, a PMF spokesman.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next. The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night. The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq. U.S. officials have said those attacks were likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias with links to the Quds Force.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts. He was a serious

So, just who is this top Iranian general the U.S. just eliminated? For many of us who watch and analyze news out of the Middle East daily, he was the world’s number one bad guy. Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.
