Media Smear Ted Cruz: He Did Not Claim Robert Dear Is A Transgendered Leftist Activist
Laziness and sloppiness have become all too common traits among modern day journalists and reporters. Media bias is easy for journalists to wave away. They see accusations of bias simply as an excuse, largely made up by Republicans and conservatives in order to deflect away from their own mistakes or incompetence (or my favorite, “tough reporting”). I think a lot of journalists truly believe what | Read More »
Tapper v. Trump – Tapper by KO in the 2nd (VIDEO)
One of the pushbacks liberals offer to the complaint about the liberal bias of the media is, “what you conservatives really want is just openly conservative media.” I can only speak for myself, but I don’t think that’s largely true. I don’t particularly want to get “news” from Hannity any more than I want to get it from Chris Hayes. Maybe I am old fashioned, | Read More »

NYC Graffiti Writer Uses Star Wars Brilliantly to Send Up ISIS
I get sent about a billion story pitches a day, almost none of which even get opened, but this one caught my eye, from a website I’d never heard of called Ratter. For the more sensitive, I should warn you that this story involves an F-bomb pretty prominently, so click at your own risk. The story, as it goes, is that a prominent NYC graffiti | Read More »
The One Big Reason Why the West Can’t Defeat ISIS
ISIS has probably been the subject of more wishful thinking in the West than any other foreign policy challenge since the Cold War. Some of the thinking has been useful, much of it is mere stupidity masquerading as policy discussion. One of the best reviews of how to beat ISIS appears in POLITICO. Unwittingly, it also makes the case for why the best approach can’t | Read More »
Welcome to the Demilitarized Zone, United States
Apparently, some crank over the weekend posted online an unspecified threat of gun violence against the University of Chicago. Get it? Some anonymous jerk posted in some online forum something about shooting up the quad. Not, you know, setting off a bomb in a building or anything – bringing a gun to campus. The FBI passed this information on to the Univ. of Chicago administrators, | Read More »
We Have A Real Problem In America, But It Has Nothing To Do With Guns
“How many more Americans need to die before we take action?” Hillary Clinton asked the crowd at the New Hampshire Jefferson-Jackson Dinner late Sunday. She went on to shamefully politicize the shooting that occurred Friday at Planned Parenthood in Colorado, ironically urging others not to use women as a “political football.” Self-awareness: it’s not for everyone. As Clinton went on to UNEXPECTEDLY use women as | Read More »
Watch out for this leading misconception about Cyber Monday
Today is a day that online retailers have claimed as their own, for getting people to get online and buy stuff. It’s somewhat obsolete now, as online shopping is simply taking over for a lot of people, but the idea’s still out there. But there’s one huge misconception about online shopping: that it’s tax free. It’s actually not, yet it’s hugely popular anyway!
The Cruz Surge Creates GOP Establishment Panic And Paralysis
None of us knows how this election is going to play out, but the one thing that we can say is that this has been the most entertaining presidential primary season ever. By far the most amusing part has been the utter state of panic the GOP establishment has been in since the voters took a look at their “electability” candidate, Jeb Bush, and started | Read More »
Martin O’Malley Blames Colorado Springs Shooting On ‘Intolerance, Racism, and Hate’
In New Hampshire Sunday night, the three Democrat candidates for President were together again, chumming around at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner and talking about party unity and loving Obama. During the course of the evening, each got up to speak about the various things that Democrats like to hear before coughing up money. Bernie talked about spreading the wealth around, Hillary talked about Hillary, and O’Malley | Read More »
“You Gotta See This Guy” – Trump’s Lie Exposed
Donald Trump committed probably his worst campaign offense so far last week, and given the other greatest hits in the Trump catalogue, that is an impressive feat indeed. What did Trump do? It definitely appeared to virtually every unbiased observer that Trump mocked a disabled reporter for his physical disability, which is the sort of thing that any halfway decent person, regardless of their political | Read More »
What If Rick Perry Does Get Back In?
Rick Perry might make news by tomorrow. December 1, 2015, is the deadline to get on the ballot in Tennessee. A Super PAC has been created to try to push Perry back into the race. The deadline for getting on the ballot in Tennessee is tomorrow. It must be done by petition or, I am told, by notifying the Secretary of State who has discretion | Read More »
Ted Cruz Teaches Us How To Deal With The Media
The media has been running with unconfirmed and unsubstantiated reports that the Colorado Springs shooter mumbled something about “baby parts.” There are no official reports from law enforcement on this. In fact, according to former RedState Managing Editor Aaron Gardner, who has been covering this story from Colorado in a more unbiased fashioned than any of the professional journalists covering it (you can see his | Read More »
Let us consider working with this ‘Climate change is terrorism’ thing.
Hey, if climate change is terrorism, then shooting an Islamic State death cultist in the face is striking a blow for Mother Gaia!

Global cooling predicted, again
The June 24, 1974 Time Magazine cover asked if we were heading into another Ice Age. Global cooling theory was popular, but of course became politically unpopular starting in the 1990s, right after the political billy club that was the Ozone Layer was solved by the Montreal Protocol in 1989. Serious climate watchers though have been explaining for years that the Earth’s climate depends on | Read More »
