Do Liberals Know The History Of Their Own Ideas?
Given liberal-progressive movement’s obsession with youth and the minds of the young and its disdain for tradition, it should not surprise us that American progressives often treat history as an afterthought – a topic to be consulted only when one needs usable examples to advance a particular point for the duration of a particular argument. Remarks by Justice Scalia over the weekend offer just one | Read More »
Obama’s New Gun Control A Mixture Of Overreach, Smoke And Mirrors, And the Obscene
Last evening, Obama released his new executive order that is designed to prevent exactly zero of any mass shootings in recent, or maybe recorded, history but which will serve as a tool to make life just a little more difficult for any legal purchaser of firearms. The order does significant damage, though. For the first time it is roping the Social Security Administration and health | Read More »
2015 In Review – Best In Movies
Best of lists are always a subjective lot. They usually result in howls of protest or some kind of comment similar to, “____ is not on the list and therefore it is garbage” or “How in the world you have ____ on that list?” But they’re fun to make because they usually tick somebody off or create some kind of debate. The following is a | Read More »
Trump Supporters Love Satirical Song Mocking His Presidential Run (VIDEO)
Parody in politics is a given. It will happen and most politicians actually enjoy it. When Presidents (even Presidential candidates) become fodder for Saturday Night Live bits, it brings them a new level of attention. Most of the time it is not flattering but it’s fun. Of course, most times people know when parody is parody. Enter some Donald Trump supporters. The people at the conservative | Read More »
Head’s Up. California Starts No Notice Gun Confiscation On January 1
The left has always claimed that they were interested in “commonsense” gun safety laws, not in confiscating weapons from law abiding citizens. When they get enough power, you learn in very short order that their real agenda is actually ensuring that no private citizen is able to possess a firearm legally. What no one said would or could happen is coming to pass in California. | Read More »
Ted Cruz Is Not the Social Conservative Rick Santorum Is Looking For
Rick Santorum has to be wondering why the voters who came out for him in 2012 aren’t even listening to him. The obvious reason is that the battles are different. The battlefield has changed. And Santorum’s social conservatism, never an easy fit with traditional social conservatism, it is simply not viable today.

WaPo Depicts Cruz’s Daughters As Monkeys, Media Focuses On His Reaction
There is almost nothing that can be said about Republicans or conservatives that is considered over the line. Even when it is, it’s interesting to see how the media covers it. In many instances, the focus by the media is not on the issue or subject, but the reaction of the person, Republicans as a whole, officials in the GOP, etc. Washington Post political cartoonist Ann | Read More »
Obama Tries To Turn Another Tragedy Into Political Opportunity
On Thursday night, 15-year-0ld Zaevion Dobson was murdered in Knoxville, Tennessee. The murder was both senseless and banal as most shooting deaths are. Earlier in the evening another woman had been shot and wounded in an apparent gang-related attack. Her son and a friend drove to the neighborhood where they believed the attacker(s) lived and carried out some random shootings. Dobson was sitting on front | Read More »
Gilbert Arenas Takes On the WNBA And the Social Justice Warriors [VIDEO would get me banned]
You can blame this whole kerfuffle on Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. Back in 1973, a tennis hustler named Bobby Riggs began talking smack about women’s tennis. (In fact, the trolling he did of the feminist movement is rather epic. If you listen to his interview you’ll recognize his cadence and speech pattern as being very similar to someone in the spotlight today. His | Read More »
The Disgusting Myth Of An Anti-Muslim Backlash After #SanBernardinoShooting
One of the perpetual myths that the left tries to create and perpetrate after each of the Islamic terror attacks on the United States is that there is some kind of widespread “backlash” against Muslims in the United States. The left was much more wadded-dampened-panties after 9/11 about the potential backlash than about the smoking rubble in Manhattan. The massacre in San Bernardino has brought | Read More »
The Best And Perhaps Only Reason To Vote For Donald Trump
Other than an excuse to crack a good bottle of bourbon and watch the panic, I mean. In the 1960s, a German communist named Rudi Dutschke reformulated one of the concepts of Italian communist Antonio Gramsci, that of “cultural hegemony”, into the memorable phrase “a long march through the institutions.” By this he meant that the way for communism to succeed in the West wasn’t | Read More »

How awesome is this? Incredibly awesome. The Spire of Dublin has a new look this week in honor of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Spire is over 350 feet tall and dominates the skyline.

Melissa Harris Perry Says Star Wars Is Racist Because Darth Vader Is Black
Oscar Wilde in his 1889 essay, ‘The Decay of Lying’ wrote, “Life imitates art, far more often than art imitates life.” If Wilde is in a place where he can see our current culture, he is probably sitting there with a look of smug satisfaction on his face and deservedly so. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ opens this Friday. The hype and buzz has everybody | Read More »
How Democrats Are Trying To Use Your Money To Take Your Guns
The Democrats are big believers in science so long as the results support their preconceived biases. For instance, they loved science when it supported anthropogenic global warming, but now that the data is anything but conclusive they have resorted to tampering with the data and silencing critics. The same is true with firearms. Every major study of firearms has shown, in the words of John | Read More »
