Harry Stack Sullivan was an American psychiatrist who founded the interpersonal theory of psychiatry, which emphasized the role of interpersonal relations as a fundamental determinant of personality development and psychopathology. For Sullivan, the developmental of close friendships in pre-adolescence (he called them “chums”) was crucial in the development of self-esteem and later intimate relationships. But hey, Sullivan’s ideas are soooo twentieth century. (He died in 1949). So, here’s an idea: Why don’t we just bubble-wrap the kiddies (so they won’t ever have to get a skinned knee, God-forbid) and give them all A’s (so they won’t ever have to feel bad about getting a lower grade). Via NY Post. ….Americans love reading how Europeans are superior parents…..So when news broke...

Oops. But you just know if Obama had decided to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, he would be hailed by the MSM as deserving of a second Nobel Peace Prize. Via Daily Caller. An MSNBC panel about Jerusalem got super awkward when the producers accidentally rolled footage of Palestinian riots. Each person on the panel seemed to be against President Donald Trump’s plan to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and they worried about what the move would mean for Palestinians and peace negotiations. MSNBC political analyst Heidi Przybyla expressed concern that the move could increase anti-Israeli and anti-American sentiment, suggesting that Trump might be to blame if any Americans were killed as a result of the decision. The...

Displaying a sign that said “Communism will win” while in uniform and displaying a t-shirt of mass murderer Che Guevara– under his uniform– are just two of the public examples of this guy promoting what appears to be the overthrow of the US government. I have a tiny feeling there are more problems with this guy. Or maybe he just wants a job with MSNBC? At first I thought the pictures on social media had to be photoshops, but remarkable absurdities like this now seem to be part of the meltdown of the left. It’s not *common* yet, and so we have a chance to send a message about what’s acceptable and waht’s not. But what should we expect after...

Joy Reid’s Twitter bio quotes James Baldwin: “Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.” And she is living proof of Baldwin’s words. HT Twitchy. Meanwhile Trump's weakness & unsuitability for the presidency have real life consequences. Venezuela, Pakistan, Jerusalem all melting down. — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) July 28, 2017 Breaking: Joy Reid wakes up from nice 8 year nap — Michael Pierce (@MichaelMPierce) July 29, 2017 It's hard to overstate how intellectually dishonest and aggressively ignorant this is. https://t.co/unAPyu5DNj — Peter J.

Poor Erin. I do hope she soon recovers from the “horror” of seeing religious leaders pray with the President of the United States. Just wondering, though, was she shocked when Barack Hussein Obama declared that the United States is “not a Judeo-Christian nation” ? Via NewsBusters. ….Religion in politics is seemingly so far removed from the media’s idea of normalcy that a picture of the President praying left one CNN anchor struggling to find words, Wednesday…. Teasing the next report, Burnett began: “Something we don’t see everyday here. The image of Donald Trump praying in the Oval Office and…all of those…hands, on him,” she struggled to find words to describe what was happening in the picture. During another tease of...

Someone needs to explain to Bernie: It’s with single payer “health care” that people will have to beg the government for healthcare. Via Washington Examiner. Bernie Sanders. Never has one man assumed such moral puritanism, and yet been so wrong about so many moral issues…. A society, for example, in which the rich (never defined) pay their “fair share” (also never defined). The U.S. income tax code might be one of the world’s most progressive, but facts don’t matter to Sanders. Like President Trump, Sanders’ political popularity rests on the stirring of emotion…. The United States is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. Our people should not have to beg for their right to health care. —...

A woman’s body is found in NY’s Hudson River. She was the first U.S. female Muslim judge. So of course, Barack Hussein Obama’s Harvard mentor could not resist pushing the “Americans are racist, Islamophobic” meme. The NYPD is calling her death a likely suicide. But why wait for “little” things, like, ya know, evidence or facts, when you can grab the opportunity to bash America? Via Free Beacon. Noted liberal Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe claimed without evidence in a series of tweets Thursday that a recently deceased New York judge was the victim of a racist murder. Sheila Abdus-Salaam was the first Muslim-American judge and the first black woman to serve on the New York Court of Appeals. Late...

Yes, this was fake news: The “heartless” Trump budget was going to starve millions of people. But I’m sure that the Anti-Trumpests will come up with another lie. That is what they seem to do best. Via National Review. The story that Trump’s budget would kill the Meals on Wheels program was too good to check. But it was false. It made for great copy — irresistibly clickable and compulsively shareable. “Trump’s Budget Would Kill a Program That Feeds 2.4 Million Senior Citizens,” blared Time’s headline. “Trump Proposed Budget Eliminates Funds for Meals on Wheels,” claimed The Hill, in a piece that got 26,000 shares. But it was false. And it wouldn’t have taken long for reporters to find and...

Hi CNN: I changed the chyron on bottom of your screen: Should read: “Pelosi doesn’t know what she is talking about.” You’re Welcome 🙂 HT American Mirror.

Maybe CNN got the word from the Hemingway classic: ‘For Whom’s the Bell Tolls’ 🙂 Via Free Beacon. …reporters at CNN discovered a new word Friday: “whom’s.” It was in the course of their research into the background of Andrew Puzder, the former CEO of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants and President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Labor, that Andrew Kaczynski, a.k.a., “K-File,” formerly of Buzzfeed, and Chris Massie appear to have stumbled upon the hitherto unknown English determiner: The ads were too much for Thomas Aquinas College, the California Catholic school, on whom’s board Puzder had served since 1998….

The Goldwater rule is the informal name given to the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) code of ethics, which states it is unethical for psychiatrists to give a professional opinion about public figures they have not examined in person and obtained consent from to discuss their mental health in public statements. It is named for Barry Goldwater, who sued the APA (and won!) following his unsuccessful run for the presidency in 1964. But, hey, who needs “ethical guidelines” when there’s an election to undermine, er, nation to save! Via Inquisitr. Three professors of psychiatry, including one from the Harvard Medical School, have written a letter to President Barack Obama expressing “grave concern regarding the mental stability of our President-elect” Donald Trump...

Rob Reiner’s character on the 1970’s hit TV show All In The Family was nicknamed “Meathead.” Seems like it is still a very good name for him. His comments comparing Donald Trump to “Jewish policemen in the Warsaw ghetto” are repulsive, ignorant and extremely offensive. HT NewsBusters. But not to be outdone in the “crazy department,” ObamaCare numbers cruncher Charles Gaba posted a very disturbing clip from Schindler’s List on his blog. Via NewsBusters. There have been many liberal mental meltdowns since Donald Trump’s election last week but few of them have approached the epic proportions of ObamaCare numbers cruncher Charles Gaba…. His quick plunge into the completely unhinged began early on the first morning of the Trumpocalypse and culminated...

But DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson is “concerned” about illegal aliens from the Middle East, so we’re all screwed, er, in good hands. Via CNS News. On Sept. 8, the Homeland Security Department’s inspector-general reported that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 individuals who were under deportation or removal orders. On Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress the actual number is “somewhere around” 750. But Johnson could not say how many of them were from countries known to be havens for terrorists. “Were any of them from special interest countries?” Sen. Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, asked Johnson. “Not off hand,” Johnson replied. “I — I can’t —...

One day soon, we will look back and wonder how it was possible to have such a little schmendrick like Kerry as Secretary of State. Via CNS News. Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday during an appearance in Bangladesh that the media could “do us all a service” if they didn’t cover terrorism “quite as much.” “No country is immune from terrorism,” Kerry said at a press availability in Dhaka, Bangladesh. “It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill...

Obama must be so proud. Via Israel National News. A delegation from the radical “Black Lives Matter” movement arrived in Israel last week to promote what the group called “the fight for dignity, justice and freedom”…. During the trip to Israel, the BLM delegation participated in a raucous anti-Israel protest in the Samarian village of Bilin, near Modi’in Illit. Two Arab protesters were taken into custody during the event…. The BLM delegation in Israel highlighted the movement’s international goals, expressing its opposition to what it described as the “genocide” of Palestinian Arabs at the hands of “Zionist vigilantes”, as well as capitalism, and the “occupation” of Palestine. In the fight for dignity, justice and freedom,” the BLM movement stated in...
