The Left Defends Brian Williams
It didn’t take long. The electrons in the Stars and Stripes story about Brian Williams’s magical helicopter ride in Iraq had barely stop zinging about the internet tubes when the first defense was mounted by the left. The story is interesting and old news. Memory does change over time. This is the experiment: The day following the explosion of the Challenger, in January, 1986, Neisser, | Read More »
Obama uses National Prayer Breakfast to compare Christianity to ISIS
So Barack Obama, leftwing community organizer and closet theologian, used the National Prayer Breakfast to throw a tu quoque at anyone critical of Islam while continuing to fancy himself as the Pope of Islam: “Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name | Read More »
Some necessary pushback on the reporting of Congress’s invite of Pope Francis I.
Quick background: Speaker of the House invited Pope Francis I to be the first pope ever to speak to a joint session of Congress… what’s that? “Did he ask permission of the President?” Umm… no. You see: Democratic agitprop to the contrary, Barack Obama is not actually a king. In fact, at the moment Obama’s actually just a bit of a troll: and even if | Read More »
Peter Beinart: Obama’s problem is that he isn’t enough like Jimmy Carter
I, as Dave Barry says, am not making this up. Peter Beinart, a low wattage intellectual and devoted leftwing hack, writes an article in the National Journal called, un-ironically, The Cost of Disowning Jimmy Carter. Beinart, for reasons that remain obscure, has been on a jihad to rehabilitate Jimmy Carter as a role model for Democrat presidents. The only reason I can come up with | Read More »

Army punishes hero after investigation clears him
It appears that the effort by the Obama administration to reduce the Army to a combat ineffective social welfare organization focused on transgender rights and never giving anyone a sad is near completion. Via the Washington Post: Capt. Mathew L. Golsteyn was leading a Special Forces team in Afghanistan in 2010 when an 80-man mission he assembled to hunt insurgent snipers went awry.

Dave Weigel and the Mystery of the 8-Year-Old Transgendered Kid
The caper started innocently enough. Listicle site and national joke Buzzfeed posted an article purporting to display an “adorable” note written by an 8-year-old who is allegedly transgender. Dave Weigel, as a relatively normal person who’s been around 8 year olds before, asked what many might consider to be a naturally occurring question: How much do 8-year olds know about their sexual identity? Hell, | Read More »

Roger Ailes Confronts the Evil While the Also Rans Cower in Fear
It is times like this that I am very proud of Fox News, where I am a political contributor. The national news media, right now collectively apologizing for Brian Williams, is collectively attacking Roger Ailes and Fox News for showing the ISIS video of the gruesome burning of the Jordanian pilot. It is not a coincidence that the very same networks attacking Roger Ailes and | Read More »
Brian Williams’s magical Iraq combat experience
The spray-tanned, blow-dried face of NBC News is in the spotlight. But one he’d prefer to be out of. It seems that for a decade he’s been flogging a story that a helicopter he was commuting on in Iraq in 2003 was shot down. Williams made the claim while presenting NBC coverage of the tribute to the retired command sergeant major at the Rangers game | Read More »
On Fox News’ decision to show the IS death cult in action.
Let’s just establish a few things about  Fox News’ decision to show Islamic State’s (IS) ritual human sacrifice of downed Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh. The Fox News link is here. It does, in fact, show, a graphic ritual human sacrifice done by evil death cultists. The professional-level quality of the video editing confirms that this was done deliberately, ritually, and as part of a larger plan. | Read More »
Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not
This really isn’t news. I mean they are Democrats. And boycotting American allies is just how they roll.

Rand Paul and Pandering to the Paranoid
Part of the problem with the Internet age is that it’s difficult to have anything approaching a nuanced discussion anymore. This is especially true when virtually everyone, regardless of their intellect, expertise, or judgment, has access to a repository of perfectly reasonable-sounding people who will say anything. If you type “are vaccines safe” into your preferred Internet search engine, you will find that there are | Read More »
Green Card Harry and The EB-5 Program
World News Videos | ABC World News represents everything that Las Vegas, Nevada symbolizes to an absolute, pristine perfection. He is loud, tacky, garish, disingenuous, malicious, mobbed-up, preys on his country like an intestinal parasite, is hateful to those with whom he disagrees and believes he is utterly exempt from the law.
