Lois Lerner Isn’t Lying
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”HT:Politico So Politico is as Politico does. If Attila the Hun wore the D Jersey; they’d be praising his leadership secrets. Never mind a few negative externalities that primarily concentrated in Red States. We | Read More »

Women’s sports: the next victim of tolerance
If society survives long enough it will look back upon the first couple of decades of this century as the point where sexual deviance was mainstreamed in the name of tolerance, the deity du jour of the American left and libertarians. While most attention has focused on the immense effort devoted to making sure that the small percentage of homosexuals (who make up a blessedly | Read More »

Boys and girls are more and more taught that they can pick their own gender adventure. The prominent scientific voices tell us we are accidents of the cosmos — the product of a swerve in nature.

Ten Years at Redstate
My morning routine used to be coffee, bagel and a newspaper. When the scandal called Rathergate broke, the phrase "fake but accurate" jarred my brain. I fired most mainstream media in September 2004. That’s when I joined Redstate. As Vladimir, I lurked at Redstate for a while before contributing a few throwaway diaries. But I found my blogging voice when I realized that my petroleum | Read More »
