Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick’s (Arizona-01) campaign float spurns American flag for Mexican one.
I find it fascinating that apparently there’s now a real shortage of American flags among Democratic candidates.Read More »
President Bush at Ground Zero. September 14, 2001
From CNN: President Bush arrived on the southern tip of Manhattan on Friday afternoon to see for himself the almost unimaginable devastation meted out upon New York’s financial district, when two 767 jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center’s landmark twin towers during Tuesday’s morning rush. There, he was greeted by a raucous crowd of construction workers and rescue personnel, all of whom seemed recharged | Read More »
Is The Democratic Party Proud of its History of Slavery & Segregation?
Being a Democrat not only means never having to say you’re sorry, but also means getting to pretend that history never happened. The Democrats’ official party website is proof of that, as its section on “Our History” declares, with all the chutzpah of the proverbail defendant who murders his parents and begs the court’s mercy on grounds of being an orphan, that: For more than | Read More »
The Democratic Party’s War on Women rhetoric doesn’t seem to be working.
Hey, at least now we know why the Democrats freaked out when Republicans started talking about making birth control pills available over the counter!Read More »
Republican Allies use “War on Women” Rhetoric in Support of Export-Import Bank
The Democrats, wielders of the “War on Women” rhetoric and the ones who made ending “corporate welfare” a party cry, have made a clear exception for the Export-Import Bank. Cronyism is a money-maker and a power guarantee. The hypocrisy alone of a president who ran on leveling the playing field staying silent on this issue. In 2008, we know he ran on ending it. In | Read More »
The Obama administration lied about the situation in Iraq
As we are on the cusp of watching helplessly as Islamic extremists carve a caliphate out of Iraq and Syria we need to ask how did we get in this mess. Though we know we left Iraq precipitously because of Obama’s political calculations we’re only now finding out that the administration was aware the situation was unraveling and lied about it. In an Ask Me | Read More »
Bucket list for a baby
Earlier in the week, I posted on the new memoir by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis and her effort to make abortion a noble act. For me her description was a chilling example of infanticide Davis, in a copy of the book obtained by the San Antonio Express-News, wrote that her unborn third daughter had an acute brain abnormality. She said doctors told her the | Read More »
Chris Christie and New Jersey’s War on Women and the Second Amendment
I haven’t devoted any time to the Ray Rice affair because celebrity spousal abuse doesn’t interest me. What is interesting is this story and how it might affect the presidential ambitions of Chris Christie. When Ray Rice was videotaped dragging his unconscious wife from an elevator in an Atlantic City, NJ, casino, Prosecutor Jim McClain recommended Rice be placed in a program for first time | Read More »

President Obama Channels Ethelred The Unready
Barack Obama has convinced me. I am newly converted. I have seen the light. War is not the answer – particularly if Barack Obama is Commander-In-Chief. He is the Modern Western analog to an old English Monarch. He is America’s answer to Ethelred The Unready. Unlike King Ethelred, he has no excuse for being poorly advised. He chose his own team of experts. Chuck Hagel, | Read More »
Tech at Night: This lie threatens to expand government greatly
Net Neutrality has failed in the courts over and over again. Some on the far left are talking about renaming the movement, others continue to hammer away at it as-is. Still more have given on on Net Neutrality as the means to get a government power grab on the Internet.Read More »

The Myth of Moderate Islam
Steven Crowder makes the case that moderate Islam, as told by our liberal betters, is a myth. (With a little help from Dana Loesch!) ‘ Crowder tears apart the moderate Muslim myth in a blistering new “Louder with Crowder” this week, addressing the blatantly ridiculous claim made by President Obama that ISIS is “not Islamic.” From the legal execution of converts to the the institutionalized | Read More »
Greed is good as long as it is green
Conservatives greeted the news that Greenpeace executive Pascal Husting flies to work in a private jet with cries of “hypocrisy” because of the “carbon footprint” associated with such luxurious commutes. Some might find it sufficiently appalling that Greenpeace has any private jets at all. This is not the only head scratching scandal to hit Greenpeace in recent weeks. In July we learned that a Greenpeace employee caused the organization | Read More »
White House takes geography lessons from Vox.com
In a briefing for reporters prior to Obama’s speech Wednesday night one “Senior Administration Official” made this statement: SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: I guess I would just add one thing on the coalition question — and I think this is important to really focus on, which is to say, in discussions with governments in the region, notably the Saudis and the Jordanians, what is clear | Read More »
Ted Cruz and the Continuation War
I know that there are a number of smart conservatives who side with Rod Dreher in the flap over Ted Cruz’s short-lived speech to the In Defense of Christians summit dinner.
However as much as our feelings may get conflicted on these issues, I think Ted Cruz is right. We don’t always get to pick who are friends and opponents are in war, and sometimes the people we’d like to have on our side, aren’t. Some of the Lebanese and “Palestinian” Christians, are reminiscent of the Finns in World War II.Read More »
Administration continues assault on religious liberty
On Monday the US government went back into court in what is its eighth attempt to force religious orders to provide contraceptive services to its members. The primary target is a Little Sisters of the Poor, a women’s religious order, but the effort has a direct impact on some 400 Catholic religious orders. The Trust’s case has largely been reported by both Catholic and secular | Read More »

More DOOM! from the polls. This time it’s Gallup.
Yesterday, Gallup released a poll showing a few things, and none of them are good for Democrats.* The first is that Republicans had expanded their lead over Democrats as the party people believe is best equipped to protect the United States from terrorism: The Republicans’ lead over the Democrats on the question of terrorism is, as you can see, at historic levels. Not since the poll | Read More »
Training the Syrian opposition is a bad idea
Obama’s speech on Wednesday night laying out an alleged strategy for dealing with ISIS included a proposal for arming fighters from Syrian opposition groups. This is a longstanding dream of the administration. Many ideas bring with them negatives. Rarely do you confront an idea that is not only bad in concept but one with no good points to offset it. Fortunately, training a surrogate army | Read More »
