Obama Administration distances itself from Hillary
The White House has sent a couple of messages to Hillary telling her that she is on her own as far as this email scandal is concerned. On Wednesday, Obama hatchet-woman and all-around consigliere, Valerie Jarret, was interviewed by Andrea Mitchell at the Washington Ideas Forum. During the course of the interview, Jarrett was asked about Hillary’s bathroom-based email server. During the course of answering | Read More »
Nose Punching is bad, mmkay? So let’s do something about it.
Promoted from the diaries… There are laws on the books that make it a crime to punch your neighbor in the nose. If you are punched in the nose the person who did it should be punished, and hopefully will be. If you are punched in the nose again by a different person hopefully that person also will be punished. If you are punched in | Read More »
Media Quick to Label Shooter a Republican (When He Isn’t)
The fact-checkers of the media are quick to tell others how wrong they are, how they got their facts, wrong, etc. What they don’t do is the requisite work for their own stories and therefore can botch things worse than others do. It’s all in the name of the Almighty Narrative that such mistakes are made, and the case of the Oregon shooter (I won’t | Read More »
The Shooter Targeted Christians. But How Did He Get His Guns?
The media is willingly rushing to demand gun control after yesterday’s shooting in Oregon. They are going to ignore that the shooter was targeting Christians. We now have too many eye witnesses saying this to ignore the truth. The media will say we would not know this, but for press reports, but they will ignore on going coverage as they would have kept up if | Read More »
Yes Mr. President, We Do Need More Guns in Schools
“It’s almost as if the President and the Left are okay with students being fish in a barrel for gunmen in order to exploit the tragedy for gun control.”The President tried to pre-emptively ridicule the idea that some of us would say we need more guns. But that fact is true. The President and Left continually say our nation’s gun laws should be more like | Read More »
How long until Obama recognizes the Oregon shooting as a hate crime?
As I noted yesterday, Obama’s interest in shooting deaths is only motivated by his ability to milk sympathy for the victims in order to support more erosion of American liberties. If Obama truly cared about gun violence he’d mention the killing fields of Chicago every once in a while. When the killer is from a group that Obama favors, he tends to say very little. | Read More »
Slate Writer Clueless About Amazon, Apple And Free Markets
Streaming video has hit the big time. I’d rather pay $4.99 to stream a movie on demand than drive to the store to get a movie for $1 at Redbox. The convenience factor is worth it. In order to stream content, people purchase a variety of different types of streaming devices – Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox, smart TV’s, Amazon Fire TV – in order | Read More »
.@BuzzFeed shows why no one trusts the media
I’m going to do this for a while so that maybe the lesson sinks in. Earlier in the week, the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza was mewling about a Gallup poll that showed virtually no one in the public trusted the media. That same day it was revealed that CBS News had employed a Clinton operative had helped shape CBS News’s coverage of Benghazi to give | Read More »
Our President is a Jackass
“[I]nstead of calling for religious tolerance – as he would have if the shooter had been a muslim – the President instead demands gun control.”Last night, as the sun set over Washington, if you asked President Obama who had been brave that day, he’d have said himself, not the students who declared themselves Christians knowing they were going to die because of it. Barack Obama, | Read More »
There is Evil, but we no longer know what it looks like
Yesterday, President Barack Obama called for the politicization of the Oregon tragedy. We should absolutely politicize these tragedies, he argues, in order to affect real, meaningful change in society. And thus goes the typical logic of the extreme liberal, who truly believes society’s ills can be legislated away. But evil cannot simply be wished away with some sort of legalspeak enchantment wild voodoo lawyers recite around | Read More »
Some Thoughts After the Oregon Shooting
For all our progress and telling ourselves we’re the “best yet!” in this information age, there are clearly a massive amount of emotional wrecks. These individuals don’t stop at withdrawing from the world, but seek to harm society in absolutely horrific ways. The latest shooting happened on Thursday at a community college in Oregon. That we even have to say “the latest” is testament to | Read More »
We can all relax for global politics are well in hand
It is incredibly worrisome to look around the world and see the troubles therein. As a denizen of this fine planet, I am often shocked and worried at the way the world is shaping up. Terror in the Middle East, downright chaos across the globe, and even at home things seem a little too intense for the U.S. It is only natural, then, for us | Read More »

Obama: Mass shootings are ‘something we should politicize’
I am not making this up. Thirteen people are dead and over twenty injured (this number is in flux as I write) in a spree shooting at Umpqua Community College and the first thing out of Rabble-Rouser-in-Chief Barack Obama’s mouth are about gun control. In what approached the status of spittle-flecked rant, Obama said, “This is something that should be politicized. It is relevant to | Read More »
