Obama’s mess in Iraq
As the Obama administration flounders about in trying to come to a decision on how to deal with ISIS/ISIL, the White House’s minions have been unleashed to, you guess it, blame President Bush. The general line of attack is that had Bush not invaded Iraq, or had done so differently, then the Child Emperor, the Lightworker, would not be flopping about like a carp on | Read More »

Racism, Voting and Ferguson
Let me begin with a little background. I have lived in the St. Louis area most of my life. I live less than 20 minutes from Ferguson. I drive within a mile of the Ferguson protest site every couple of weeks as I travel to/from Illinois. I used to buy Krispy Kreme donuts at a store on West Florissant Rd, the street where the problems | Read More »
We have never been at war with Eastasia
When Obama took a break from golfing to make a statement on the ritual slaughter of photojournalist James Foley by ISIS/ISIL he included this line: They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision, and the | Read More »
Sen. Mark Begich (D, Alaska) pays female staffers 71% of what he pays male ones.
Don’t expect the Democrats to push Begich on this; gender pay equality is all very well, but it’s apparently much more important that the Democrats keep that Senate seat.

Tech at Night: Title II Reclassification is a bad idea, regardless of Net Neutrality
Even as Democrats get desperate that they’re losing the public debate on Net Neutrality, the ideological extreme left is trying to merge Net Neutrality and a second, separate debate. They want FCC unilaterally to redefine ISPs not as information services, but as common carriers like phone companies, which are covered under Title II of the Communications Act. They want to move ISPs to a much heavier regulatory scheme. They want to regulate the Internet.

No. This is not a libertarian moment
A couple of weeks ago the New York Times Magazine ran a lengthy piece by a guy named Robert Draper titled, Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived? The gist of the article is summed up by Nick Gillespie, editor-in-chief at Reason and a central figure in Draper’s article: Just two weeks ago, The New York Times Magazine had the temerity to ask,“Has the Libertarian Moment Finally Arrived?” Among | Read More »
R.L. Miller and the California Democratic Establishment’s #waronwomen. #ca26
If you are wondering how it is that Jeff Gorell (R CAND, California-26) is managing to put Julia Brownley in such electoral fear – in California, forsooth! – well, it’s because Brownley is an awful candidate, of course. And she has awful friends, too. Let’s go to the Twitter, shall we? First off, meet some of Jeff’s supporters. Women in Ventura County support @JeffGorell for | Read More »
Media Responsibility Out The Window
A freelance journalist by the name of Ryan Schuessler said in a recent blog post that he was leaving Ferguson, Mo., and not returning. The reason? A feeling of shame at the behavior of the growing population of journalists there. Schuessler was sent there to do some work for Al Jazeera America (Don’t boo him for it. Freelance journalists go where the money is and | Read More »
Contra David Frum – Principled Libertarianism Is the Highest Level on the Philosophical Ladder
Image Credit: Political-Humor.org I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. Aristotle The great mind, in a free land, is free from the law. Not in the spoiled-brat Nietzschean Ubermensch sense, but rather in the sense of the adult who sets his own limits, tends his own fences, knows his own capabilities | Read More »

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Bilks Taxpayers out of Millions
Just over three years ago, subsequent to the Dodd-Frank financial “reform” bill passing, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau came into existence. As Elizabeth Warren’s intellectual baby, it should be no surprise to conservatives that the CFPB is an exercise in the biggest kind of government. However, in the third year of the CFPB’s existence, a bevy of stories have broken that underline that the bureau | Read More »
So Then What About Bowe Bergdahl?
The ISIS/ISIL nuts are not above trading a hostage for American dollars to later use against us. They made a ransom demand to the United States. CNN’s Crossfire tweeted out the response from the spokesman for President Obama’s National Security Council. “[The U.S.] does not grant concessions to hostage takers…. Doing so would only put more Americans at risk of being taken captive,” said the | Read More »
The New York Times reconciles itself to losing the Senate.
(H/T: Hot Air) It wouldn’t publish an article like this unless it had come to terms with the situation: A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer | Read More »
I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse
“On the last day there will be a narrow gate. That makes me pessimistic about my future in politics and the future voices on the right” Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these | Read More »
