    Will the infantile apes please stop flinging poo and grow up?

    Will the infantile apes please stop flinging poo and grow up?

    We can all benefit from an occasional rant.  If President Obama gets to do it (over and over again), and the Trumpkins get to do it with gusto, why can’t the rest of us? So here’s mine. Many conservatives are pursuing an unconstitutional and, frankly, cruel, view of over a billion people based on what book they’re taught and the circumstances of their birth. Many | Read More »

    Trump and the Know-Nothings: Nothing has changed

    Trump and the Know-Nothings: Nothing has changed

    Once again, the Know-Nothings have surfaced like mold growing on overripe fruit.  Led by Donald Trump, Captain of the U.S.S. Bombast, Lord High King of Blather, the red-blooded vein of “real Americans” have shown their stripes—keep everyone who isn’t like “us” out. But Trump does have a point.  In 2001, President George W. Bush grounded all air traffic, because he didn’t know which airplanes contained terrorists.  Casting | Read More »

    The coming civil war

    The coming civil war

    If Vegas set odds on President Obama’s speech to the nation tonight, it would be 5:1 that he’ll focus on terrorism, and 50:1 if you add the word “Islamic” (which in combination with “terror” creates a sound he seems incapable of producing—it comes out as a squeaking cough). Somehow, with 350 million guns on the street, the American Left’s universe, in all it’s European glory, | Read More »

    Benneta Betbedal escaped Islamic terror in Iran to die by Islamic terror

    Benneta Betbedal escaped Islamic terror in Iran to die by Islamic terror

    I was asked to write this story by my editor at BizpacReview.  To the victims of mass murders, whether it’s terrorism like San Bernardino or a mentally ill killer like Aurora, Colorado, making these events into political theater is “insulting, insensitive and off-base,” as my writing colleague Frieda Powers wrote.  Powers lost her cousin Benneta Betbedal in the San Bernardino massacre. For one of us | Read More »

    Prayer shaming: They know not what they do

    Prayer shaming: They know not what they do

    (I was going to write on this, but Steve did me the favor of saying it much better than I would, with grace…Bill S)  Having run out of excuses why mass shootings are becoming regular events, Leftists have exposed their worldview like a peacock fanning its tail feathers: in full lavish display.  To them, prayer is, and always has been, a useless exercise.  They see | Read More »

    Cruz tops Trump, Rubio in latest poll among most conservative voters

    Cruz tops Trump, Rubio in latest poll among most conservative voters

    If I were , I’d be pretty happy looking at today’s poll. Polls are notoriously fickle before actual primaries have taken place, and even then they’re not necessarily the most reliable indicators of future performance.  But it’s all we have, and a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say. Take a look at the latest Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday Dec. 2.  Leon Wolf already cited this | Read More »

    Yes, American Muslims DID celebrate 9/11

    Yes, American Muslims DID celebrate 9/11

    I must admit I have a grudging but growing admiration for Donald Trump*.  He has a way of saying things that’s like popping the clutch on a ’73 Z28 Camaro with a 350 V8.  Everybody hears the screech, sees the smoke, and then it leaves a long skid mark. Trump’s enduring claim that “thousands and thousands” of Muslims celebrated in New Jersey after the World | Read More »

    Hail King Blather (Donald Trump talks himself to Death)

    Hail King Blather (Donald Trump talks himself to Death)

    President WIlliam Henry Harrison’s only inaugural speech lasted an hour and fifty-five minutes. It killed him. Not politically.  Or even intellectually.  Quite literally, it did kill him. On March 4, 1841, after winning a landslide election on a campaign slogan of “Tippecanoe and Tyler, too,” the Whig gave his speech on a cold, wet Thursday in Washington D.C.  As the war hero of Tippecanoe, who | Read More »

    Planned Parenthood is ill-clothed in robes of self-righteous hypocrisy

    Planned Parenthood is ill-clothed in robes of self-righteous hypocrisy

    This has to be one of the worst cases of confirmation bias and self-righteous hypocrisy I’ve ever seen. Before anything official has been released about Richard Lewis Dear, 57, the man who killed three, including a police officer who gave his life in the line of duty, the press and Planned Parenthood have pulled the chocks and rolled the bandwagon down the hill. Planned Parenthood | Read More »

    Conservatives don’t fear ISIS; the Left will reap the whirlwind

    Conservatives don't fear ISIS; the Left will reap the whirlwind

    President Obama thinks Republicans are scared of the Islamic State.  We are not.  But we’re terrified of Obama’s policies, the New York Times editorial board and the liberal narrative they are spouting. The president said the Islamic State “can’t beat us on the battlefield so they try to terrorize us into being afraid.”  The Left’s response to being bullied to is be foolhardy, call Republicans fear-mongers, and | Read More »
