It’s Not About a Shutdown
“This is a fight on principle over whether the Republican Party should stand by and let our tax dollars be used to subsidize the American Mengeles of Planned Parenthood or not.”Republican Leaders and their friends in the Circle of Jerks that make up the Washington Press Corps are pushing a “there they go again” line against conservatives fighting to defund Planned Parenthood. They are making | Read More »
Germany starting to reestablish border controls, ‘thanks’ to refugee crisis.
The entire thing would be quite the knee-slapper, except that I have children who will be of military age in about, oh, ten years or so. I would rather that we not be faced with yet another general European war in that time – and, no, I don’t think that we can avoid getting sucked into one. We have yet to avoid getting sucked into a general European war. Why would we change our losing streak in that regard now?Read More »
Feminist is shocked to discover the Pope is Catholic
I’d be a lot less than honest if I said I was a fan of Pope Francis. as I said once before, his “off the cuff pronouncements didn’t leave me like a James Bond martini: shaken not stirred.” I say that as a political conservative and a conservative Roman Catholic. Having said that, my real points of objection to him are what I think is | Read More »
TIME censors the Pope
The American left has been all a-tizzy with Pope Francis ever since he uttered the words, “who am I to judge,” in the context of how the Church should deal with homosexuals attempting to lead a Christian life. They became less enamored with him when he campaigned against homosexual marriage, calling it ideological colonialism. Now it has reached the point where the media is actually | Read More »
The hackery of Lawrence Krauss
Last week a “public intellectual” named Lawrence Krauss wrote a story of New York Magazine titled All Scientists Should Be Militant Atheists. Krauss is, as Joe Biden would say, ‘a BFD’ among atheists. Presumably he appeals to the same group that memorizes Neil DeGrasse Tyson tweets and, even though they got their BA in Critical Feminism, loves to proclaim “I love f***ing science.” What apparently | Read More »
The collapse of Christianity in the Middle East
I am of a mixed mind on articles like this, Why Christianity Is Surging in the Heart of Islam. On the one hand you have an author who is justly proud of what he has been a part of. On the other you see a mistaken and pollyannish portrayal of the true situation. Today the Pew Research Center numbers Christians in the Arabian Peninsula at | Read More »
Report: no evidence Clinton’s server was wiped
This could be very interesting… and if you are Hillary, painful. The company that managed Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail server said it has “no knowledge of the server being wiped,” the strongest indication to date that tens of thousands of e-mails that Clinton has said were deleted could be recovered. Clinton and her advisers have said for months that she deleted her personal correspondence | Read More »
Michael Gerson: Those Republicans are really fringe Islamophobes, aren’t they?
Michael Gerson’s September 11 column in the Washington Post can’t be read without calling to mind Talleyrand’s description of the restored Bourbon dynasty, “They have learnt nothing and forgotten nothing”. The title, Republicans’ fringe tone on Islam shows a sharp turn since 9/11, tells you much of what you need to know about the column. In Gerson’s view, nothing has really changed since 9/11 and | Read More »

A Reminder that Tasers Are Not Toys
Back in February, a woman named Natasha McKenna died as a result of injuries sustained while she was being transferred from confinement in Fairfax County to a psychiatric hospital. The woman had been in custody for seven days and thus was not under the influence of any drugs, but she displayed clear signs of mental illness and had reportedly attacked deputies while in custody. During | Read More »
Surprise: Iran declares it has found new uranium deposits
UN Iran Ahmadinejad If the situation were not so dire, I would be laughing. Not must a gentle chuckle, but a rollicking, bowel-loosening belly laugh. Iran has discovered an unexpectedly high reserve of uranium and will soon begin extracting the radioactive element at a new mine, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said on Saturday. The comments cast doubt on | Read More »
Is the White House behind the manipulation of ISIS reporting?
The Obama administration continues to corrupt and befoul everything it touches. A few days ago it was reported that the US intelligence apparatus support US Central Command, the war fighting joint command that is charged with “defeating and degrading” ISIS, was in a state of near mutiny. As it turned out, the only thing being “degraded” was the integrity of the senior leadership of that | Read More »

9-12, The Patriot Act and Islamic Terrorism
Same As It Ever Was, Same As It Ever Was,…. The United States Government needs to do one of two things in regards to the Post 9-11 existential threat of anti-western terrorism and the Orwell State we have erected to combat it. We can go Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% or we can go Genghis Kahn. Instead, as | Read More »

Abortion Survivors Exist, and Their Testimonies Should Shake Us All
There is nothing more powerful than a survivor’s testimony. Whether it’s a natural disaster, man-made terror, or a terminal illness, those who endure an extreme trial, and live to tell about it, inspire, challenge, and change us. I am moved by reading and hearing their stories. The strength of these individuals is of a special caliber. More than 57,000,000 victims of abortion have been silenced | Read More »
Meet the next Prime Minster of the United Kingdom
To the credit of the Labour Party in the United Kingdom, they actually let the party base come together and vote for who will be the next leader of the party. That’s an unusual thing in the UK: the parties there all tend to be run by the establishment (and the unions in the case of Labour), but Labour had a vote, and that’s something | Read More »
Where I Was on 9-12. The Day I Actually Got It.
As I drove slowly that hot and humid Texas morning down Rancier Avenue through Killeen, Texas; I truly comprehended what had happened the day before. I knew well and completely what had taken place the day before. Everyone everywhere did. I just didn’t get it yet. That morning, as the line of traffic, crawled towards the gates of Fort Hood, I got the reality of | Read More »
Rick Perry suspends his campaign
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry has suspended his campaign. It is unfortunate that one of the most successful governors in America couldn’t break out onto the national stage and the nation is poorer for it. Governor Perry left with the class he has shown throughout hid public life and he did it thinking about America and Texas and the future. Governor Perry’s Remarks to the | Read More »
Trump’s victory is assured: Team Romney opposes him.
I’m having trouble wrapping my head around this headline New mission for Team Romney: Stop Trump. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that either someone is pumping industrial strength hallucinogens into Boston’s water supply (always possible) or someone in the Boston Globe is getting an early start on April Fools Day. Some of them go back to 2002, the win. Others slogged | Read More »
