Shameless: Hillary Invokes 9/11 To Defend Wall Street Donations
When politicians debate, there is a chance there will be some moment that works well for a candidate (Reagan’s “youth and inexperience” wisecrack towards Walter Mondale) or very badly (Rick Perry’s “Oops” moment or Al Gore’s constant sighing) . Then there are just bizarre moments. For example, who in their right mind would use 9/11 as a means of defending the campaign contributions from Wall | Read More »
Democratic Presidential Hopefuls: The Least Interested in Addressing Terror
I remember how I felt on September 11, 2001. I was a college sophmore, and knew – along with everyone else – that the world had changed forever. Not because conflict, and terror, and death, and war had not existed before, but never like this, at this scale, and on our soil among the citizenry. President Obama took office in January 2009, but since then, | Read More »
The Democratic Debate Memorial Open Thread.
It may actually be interesting, at that: I’m personally all agog to see how the Democratic candidates avoid mentioning how they plan to slay our country’s enemies. I know, I know. I can’t imagine any of them actually sounding sane on foreign policy, either. Open thread.
Sanders Camp Throws Hissy Fit As Debate Adds Foreign Policy
The duties the President has to carry out can change on a moments notice. They cannot anticipate all events that occur and the United States is looked to as a leader around the world. So what does it say about a Presidential candidate that he throws a fit because a deadly terrorist attack in France shifts the focus of a Democrat primary debate to foreign | Read More »
Will Hillary Clinton Be Called Out On Her Responsibility For Syria?
I don’t plan on watching the Democrat debate because I don’t see the purpose in watching a clutch of socialists argue about how to steal more of my money. The only entertainment value would be in wagering on who nods off first, Hillary or Bernie. If it was videotaped using infra-red cameras we could probably amuse ourselves checking the elderly Democrat front runners for incontinence. | Read More »
CBS News Moderator To “Preview” Debate Questions With Democrats
I guess it is to the point where the media no longer tries to pretend that it is not an arm of the Democrat party. In the last Democrat debate, Anderson Cooper asked hard-hitting questions like, in the words of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, “which of you is the most handsome and wise.” In fact, Cooper pointedly said that he did | Read More »
Ted Cruz: Secure the U.S., France, and NATO from Daesh Infiltrators
Christopher Halloran/Shutterstock.com I feel for the French. I remember how I felt on 9/11, and for quite a while afterwards. Following the terror attacks in Paris, I feel that way again. Only now I am far less optimistic that our leaders will do what is necessary to protect us and to defeat the evil doers. Yesterday morning before the Daesh terror attack on Paris, ABC | Read More »
Who Let The “JV” Team Put On Lakers Uniforms And Hire Kobe Bryant?
The Obama administration is not only incapable of managing the foreign and defense policy of this nation, it is so far out of touch, its head stuff so far up its pimply, cellulite infuse behind that it really knows less about what is going on in the world than any of William F. Buckley Jr.’s famous “first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory.” | Read More »
Paris Attacks Show the Many Faces of Terror
As we come to terms with the awful carnage wreaked in Paris over the weekend, those of us who cover these sorts of events on the Internet should remember all too well the risks associated with forgetting the effects of the fog of war on the accuracy of news media coverage whenever a terrible event like this occurs. Obviously, it’s far too early for us | Read More »
Debate watch: Democrats will shift focus to how they plan to lose the war.
The Democrats will switch their debate focus to discussing how each candidate plans to lose the war against ISIS.Read More »
We Must Rethink The Syrian Refugee Problem
“[L]et me not now use Paris to justify what I believed about politics the day before Paris.”It is looking more and more likely that the men who perpetrated the attacks on Paris, at least some of them, came into the country as Syrian refugees. In fact, as more and more news reports are finally willing to admit, many of the refugees have been young, single | Read More »
The Real Tragedy Of Paris Is Campus Protests Being Ignored
Hard to believe but true. Even as French police were looking for terrorists last night the dimwitted, race-baiters at University of Missouri were actually complaining about how the terror attack was taking attention away from them. These screenshots via TheRightScoop, please visit the link for more: ‘ It is really hard to attribute this kind of attitude to anything other than their being hardcore sociopaths. | Read More »
Terror Attack In Paris– Sky News: At least 158 confirmed dead
Refresh page to catch updates We still don’t know exactly what has happened in Paris, but these are the outlines: French president Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency and closed all borders late Friday after terrorist gunmen opened fire at multiple locations in central Paris, killing dozens of people and taking almost 100 people hostage at a rock concert. Explosions also erupted at the Stade de France, | Read More »

Guess which rhetorical tricks Donald Trump used against Ben Carson this week
Donald Trump is worried about Ben Carson. For a while there he was sure he had the GOP nomination wrapped up, as the yes-men surrounding him kept saying “Yes, Mr. Trump, you won the latest poll.” But even the brownest of noses can’t say that with a straight face anymore, so Trump has abandoned his old ‘counterpunch’ strategy and has begun using every dirty rhetorical | Read More »
New Texas Poll Proves Ted Cruz Is Electable
A new poll out by University of Texas and the Texas Tribune has Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% tied for the lead. More than that, it shows the Texas primary is a two-man race: U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and businessman Donald Trump are in a dead heat for the Republican presidential nomination in Texas, according to the latest University | Read More »
House Freedom Caucus To Release New “Contract With America”
The Contract With America, you may recall, was the brainchild of Newt Gingrich for the 1994 elections. Gingrich decided to nationalize the House of Representative election, allowing GOP candidates to run on an array of poll tested propositions — all Contract provisions had at least 60% approval — rather than local issues: require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply | Read More »
The Nation’s Abortion Laws Now In the Hands of God And Anthony Kennedy
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal by the abortion industry over the regulation of abortion clinics. One really has to wonder what the overarching Constitutional issue is that allows a state’s clear cut authority to regulate medical practice within the state to be challenged in federal court, but such is the state of federalism. The case will settle a conflict between rulings that | Read More »
Why These Women Think the Government Seizing One Home Benefited Their Neighborhood
PHILADELPHIA—Longtime residents know East Walnut Lane, on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, as a quiet street. It’s a street lined with houses all featuring the same facade—stone on the first story, brick on the second; alternating black and white screen doors; four steps leading up to the front porch. It is a street that has been home to neighbors who mostly kept to themselves. In | Read More »
Feminism Just Became Fatal
Feminism, as a movement, just became responsible for a lot of future deaths by civilians at the hands of cops. Let me explain. Here is a fact of life – men are different from women. This isn’t a good thing or a bad thing, it is just a thing. I don’t think really that feminists even contest this basic point, they just argue that the | Read More »
