Obama Administration Continues Insolent Tone with Media over American “Hostages” Abandoned in Iran
The Obama Administration is adding insult to injury. After President Obama attacked a reporter questioning his decision to make a deal with Iran leaving four American hostages behind as “nonsense,” Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman continued this insolent tone yesterday.
Instead of merely addressing a question about the hostages, Undersecretary Sherman attacked the reporter’s characterization of the wrongfully imprisoned Americans as “hostages.”
Not hostages? That’s absurd.Read More »
Trump and the Abdication of Responsibility
So we now have to accept that we live in a world where Donald Trump is, right now, leading in the GOP polls. It goes without saying that Donald Trump is, as a result, an absolute embarrassment to the entire GOP electorate, in that he gains popularity even as plays twitter troll with all the talent and finesse of an adolescent prep school boy. Yes, | Read More »
US pledges to help Iran protect its nuclear program
The dimensions of Obama’s craven surrender to Iran are becoming more and more clear. Yesterday, the administration circulated a draft UN Security Council resolution to remove UN sanctions from Iran. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46%‘s cute little committee isn’t going to finish it’s ‘debate’ until mid-September. The fact that there will be no UN sanctions in place by then calls into question | Read More »
Thank You Duncan Hunter
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) 82% announced this morning that he is submitting legislation to let military recruiters carry weapons or have the Pentagon maintain outside security. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) 82% is a retired Marine. He made the comment on Morning Joe. Good for him.
Rick Perry, shutting Mark Halperin down on Planned Parenthood question.
This is an important technique that every Republican politician and candidate for President should use when asked about Planned Parenthood. Let me edit the transcript down to the parts I want to highlight for educational purposes: Mark Halpern: “Governor, I would like to ask you a couple questions about Planned Parenthood. [snip] Second, why are you so troubled by this video?” [snip] [Rick] Perry: [snip] | Read More »
Dear GOP, Including the Bush Family, Please Return Nancy G. Brinker’s Donations
A few years ago, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, persuaded the Susan G. Komen Foundation to stop giving money to Planned Parenthood. There was a leftwing orchestrated public backlash and, on the advice of Karl Rove, the Komen Foundation reversed its position and Karen Handel quit as the Foundation resumed tithing to Planned Parenthood. Nancy Brinker is a major Republican donor and heads | Read More »
An anti-copyright bill is coming, the Local Radio Freedom Act
Is your member of Congress supporting the coming anti-copyright bill, the Local Radio Freedom Act (LRFA)? As we all know, the name of a bill can be laughably misleading, and it is in this case. The LRFA is a huge giveaway to well-connected local radio owners. They want special exemptions from having to pay for the music they broadcast. That’s simply picking one industry as | Read More »
The Cowardly Women of Reproductive “Rights”
Women? You are fools. You women who brazenly wave the banner of abortion and label it reproductive “rights”? You are cowards. You collect stolen empathy for being born female, and deem any decision you make regarding pregnancy a “right”. Then you carry on like a victor who has crusaded for equality. Except you’re not. You’re the epitome of selfish, and are everything opposite of what | Read More »
The Lessons of Planned Parenthood’s Theology of Sartre
. Let me explain to you the best way to really get people riled up and frothing at the fang. Do you wish to whip up the mob and blast through the ennui of Post-modern apathy? Just let people see the way it is. You don’t have to yell. You don’t have to scream. Just put a video camera on someone | Read More »
Department of Interior official faked transcripts, lied about education
Well, this whole government data breach seems to be getting worse by the minute. The Department of the Interior’s computer systems played a major role in the breach of systems belonging to the Office of Personnel Management, and DOI officials were called before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday to answer questions about the over 3,000 vulnerabilities in agency systems discovered in | Read More »
My Conversation with Gov. Scott Walker
Earlier today I had a conversation with Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. He’s out on the campaign trail now. I started the interview with the late breaking news about Chattanooga, but also got him to focus on his one big item and why liberals, even when winning, seem so angry.
Apple, Inc. Has Little Interest in Conservative News Voices
I knew this was going to happen. I wrote about it a few weeks ago. It was my impression that Apple, in preparing a news service, would set it up in such a way as to make right-wing and orthodox Christian voices disappear. Sure enough. I just set up Apple News on my iPad. Here is the start screen. So we have the left-wing New | Read More »

@BobCorker stunned that he is betrayed by Obama
Folks, this is Failure Theater at it’s freakin finest. It doesn’t get better than this. Obama is circulating a resolution for UN Security Council consideration that implements the Iran deal announced earlier in the week. The United States on Wednesday circulated a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council that would endorse the Iran nuclear deal but retain an arms embargo and ban on ballistic | Read More »

What the Hell Happened to Rand Paul?
Here is the guy who should be doing some cross-party fusion. He rallied a lot of Americans in bipartisan fashion on national security. He seemed to be playing his cards right. And . . . ? Bernie Sanders is kicking his butt in campaign fundraising. In fact, I dare say Sanders froze Paul’s chance at fusion. All the little rich libertine millennials that Paul was | Read More »
Wisconsin Supreme Court shuts down ‘John Doe’ investigation
This sad saga of abuse of authority by an unethical and highly partisan prosecutor may finally be at an end. By way of background, the Milwaukee County prosecutor, John Chisholm, decided to harness his office to Wisconsin’s misnamed ‘Government Accountability Board’ in order to harass Governor Scott Walker and jail, bankrupt or terrify as many of his allies as possible. To this end, innocent people | Read More »
Remember Peak Oil?
Image Source : The Washington Post You could not be seriously serious unless you were concerned about Peak Oil. The officially official announcement of this phenomenon came in 1956 in a paper by M. King Hubbert entitled “Nuclear Energy and The Fossil Fuels.” He noticed that an oil field was a finite resource and that it’s productive performance could be modeled by building a Gaussian | Read More »
AFL-CIO base futilely calls for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton.
