Of Herds and Harlots, Measles is Back
Come, let us reason together. Mark Twain famously quoted British PM Benjamin Disraeli, “there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Generally, this is true, but sometimes statistics don’t lie. In the case of measles, the statistics speak truth. The measles vaccine was developed in 1963, and combined with the mumps and rubella vaccines in 1971, known as the MMR vaccine. Children are given the | Read More »
Bergdahl to be Charged with Desertion
We knew this true last August: President Obama traded five vicious Taliban terrorists for a deserter. And now the U.S. Army nods in agreement. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion, among other violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), according to Briebart and The Washington Times reports. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban last year in exchange | Read More »
#Deflategate is a Disgrace and Cheaters Never Win
I am so absolutely and completely, gaggingly chokingly vomitingly sick of hearing about #Deflategate. It’s a disgrace. This is just one more proof that our society has fallen into a liberal Chinese finger trap of the brain. The harder we pull against it, the more it cuts off our cerebral circulation. I can feel myself losing intelligence. I can feel it. I win and you | Read More »
Obama runs to meet Saudi King Salman (but still refuses to meet Netanyahu)
President Obama has changed his scheduled departure on his trip to India so as to personally meet the new Saudi King Salman (according to CNN). The POTUS is literally running to be among the first world leaders to genuflect to the new Saudi leader, only days after he was appointed. Vice President Joe Biden was originally set to have led a delegation to Saudi Arabia on | Read More »
Cataclysm for the GOP
If the Republican Party wishes to remain relevant in history, and not become like the Whigs, it will have to align itself with its own stated principles, and like the Whigs, expel those who don’t stand with them. The Whigs threw a sitting president, John Tyler, from their own party. It didn’t save them, but at least they showed it can be done. The Congressional Republican Caucus can send a message by expelling Renee Ellmers. If they do this, at least we’d know they care about the coming cataclysm.

A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Idea
Taxing Section 529 tax-free education plans is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea. Of all the lying, broken campaign promises,and studied burglary President Obama has committed over the past six years—seven really, if you count his first campaign—this has to be the worst. He who can’t help but toot his own horn (tooting his horn was his only moment of clarity in the | Read More »
If You Hate ‘American Sniper’, You’re Probably Not American
‘American Sniper’ draws a line in the sand separating Americans from whimpering cowardly quislings who share our country but not our spirit.

The Worst Generation
We have ceded parental responsibility and authority from moms and dads to the government. Government can protect our children, sometimes. But a government who can do everything for your kids, can also take your kids away if you disagree with it. As the old quote goes: “If your government is big enough to give you everything you want, it is big enough to take away everything | Read More »
Mexico is Now Issuing Birth Certificates in U.S.
¡Dios bendito! Mexico’s government is not known for its efficiency. But they’ve got their act together if you’re a Mexican citizen in the United States, and need your permiso, or your driver’s license in California. Today (Jan 15), the Mexican government is issuing birth certificates from any consulate in the United States. Not 24 hours after the House of Representatives approved a bill that would | Read More »
Rep Justin Amash Wants to Have His Cake and Eat It
has some ‘splaining to do. But first, some background. Speaker showed some backbone on the House floor yesterday, as that body passed a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, with amendments attached which would roll back DACA—something that’s long overdue—and remove funding for President Obama’s executive edicts (they weren’t executive actions because he simply spoke them into being like Zeus from Olympus) dealing | Read More »
