The New York Times Must Ignore History to Place Blame on California’s Woes
Adam Nagourney, writing in the New York Times over the weekend, penned this piece looking at the history of Calfornia’s father-son governors, Pat Brown and Jerry Brown. He used the California drought to cast the story of Jerry Brown, now the governor, having to clean up the messes caused in part by his father.

Tech at Night: Radio ga ga
No industry should ever get special privileges in this country. That’s picking winners and losers at a basic level. Radio gets a cutout, and it should be ended. Copyright is copyright. Just ask any freelancer what having your stuff given away for free, in exchange for ‘exposure,’ is really worth.
Waco, Caring and Police Brutality
So a bunch of really bad people decided to engage in a turf war over drugs, babes and a grubby hang-out called Twin Peaks.* Eight people died another 192 went to the can. The police came in like a pissed-off hurricane and exercised peace through superior firepower. The aforementioned “business establishment” got the business and won’t be reopening for at least seven days. If we | Read More »

The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not
With the fall of Ramadi to ISIS over the weekend, many foreign policy analysts are scrambling to assign and apportion blame between George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state. I guess these questions are interesting within the context of political supremacy here in the United States as between Republicans and Democrats – | Read More »
Slate’s William Saletan: the dumbest man on the internet
Sometimes you read stuff so bizarre that it simply takes your breath away. Slate, which set the standard of intellectual rigor with its epic expose of the cruel sport of monkeyfishing, has always been a motherlode of lackwits who can be counted upon to say the most bizarre things to boost their pageviews. One of the black holes of intelligence at Slate is a guy | Read More »
The Republicans in 2016 Are DOOMED!!!!!!

The press steps in with its usual “The GOP is doomed” headlines. We | Read More »
Loretta Sanchez commits a microaggression
The California senate race is shaping up nicely. Two rabid and dimwitted progressive harpies, Congresswoman Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) 15% and Attorney General Kamala Harris, are locked in a cage match to succeed another rabid and dimwitted progressive harpy, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 8%. Sad to say, one of those two will be a US Senator and thereby, as | Read More »
The Mayaguez Incident
The hijacking of the Maersk Tigris by the Iranian armed forces and their attempted piracy of the Singapore flagged Alpine Eternity it is fitting that we take a look at a similar incident that took place 50 (math is hard) 40 years ago. On May 12, 1975 the US container ship, SS Mayaguez passed within 12 miles of Cambodia, then under the Khmer Rouge regime thanks | Read More »

Bernie Sanders supporter finds new and exciting way to waste $2.5K.
This is entertaining at first glance; but it’s really kind of sad. When Paul Joffe saw that BernieSanders[.]com was available for purchase in early 2014, he just about lost it. “I figured that if I could buy it, anyone could buy it and that is bad,” said the diehard Sanders supporter. “I was worried that somebody would buy it and redirect it to BernieSucks[.]com or | Read More »
Ted Cruz Was Fearless Yesterday
Last night in Georgia, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% spoke to the delegates at the Georgia Republican Convention. Regular readers of RedState know that the Speaker of the House in Georgia, collaborating with gay rights activists, left-wing Democrats, and big business, scuttled a state version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Action in exchange for Democrat votes on a billion dollar tax increase. | Read More »
Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA
No Empire Which Makes Poor Policy Is Immune To Downfall. For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their | Read More »
Islamic State seizes key portions of Ramadi, we’re-still-calling-it-Iraq.
Well. I guess we now know why it was suddenly important to ask all the Republican candidates whether they would have gone into to Iraq, knowing now what we knew then. It was done apparently to distract from the fact that the current Democratic President is still busy losing the war that the Republican President won for him: “Islamic State fighters took control of key sites | Read More »
