Cut a baby from a woman; kill it; it isn’t murder in Colorado
When people defend abortion, this is one of the consequences. I’m not sure the Planned Parenthood, pro-infanticide crowd sees this as a feature or a bug: A former nurse’s aide will not face murder charges for allegedly cutting and removing an unborn baby from the mother’s womb, Boulder County, Colorado, prosecutor Stanley Garnett said Thursday. The mother, Michelle Wilkins, answered a Craigslist ad for baby | Read More »
Dick Durbin endorses Chuck Schumer for Minority Leader.
Somebody has to say this, so it might as well be me: there’s a step missing in this scenario. “Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) on Friday endorsed his rival, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), to become the next Senate Democratic leader, clearing the path for what is likely to be an easy transition in leadership when Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 0% steps | Read More »
Situation Normal: Hillary Clinton obstructs justice and operates outside the law
Nothing says “I have nothing to hide” like erasing your private web server after your previous employer asks you to produce what is on it. Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday. “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton | Read More »
Obama supporting ethnic cleansing in Iraq
As the United States, under Barack Obama, has begun to act as a proxy for Iran in allowing the alleged fight against ISIS serve as a cover for spreading Iranian influence it has become obvious that we are supporting Iranian-backed militias who are no better, in any respect, than the people they are supposed to be fighting. Instead of fighting ISIS, these militias are actively | Read More »
Maryland Obamacare Exchange Overcharged Feds by $30 Million
It has been a while since we last talked about the gigantic messes that some state Obamacare exchanges are. Maryland’s exchange is one of the leaders in that group. The state ditched its original exchange last year because it was too glitch-ridden to work. Now, news has come out that Maryland overcharged the federal government by almost $30 million. Per The Hill: Maryland’s yearlong audit | Read More »
Obama’s foreign policy: Cluster f*** or g-d freefall?
When a coalition of Arab armies intervened in Yemen this week to suppress an imminent take over of that predominantly (about 65%) Sunni nation by a Iran-backed Shiite militia, the same militia that disarmed US Marines as it tossed them out of the country, the United States was caught by surprise. As the invading coalition was led by Saudi Arabia, a multi-generational (mostly) ally and | Read More »
Indiana’s RFRA law and the left’s change of heart on religious freedom
On Thursday, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a state level version of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This should have been an uninteresting happening. Religious freedom… not the Orwellian progressive construction of Freedom of Worship preferred by Obama… was a formative principle of the American nation. But to hear the left and the homosexual privilege groups howl you would have thought someone was using | Read More »
Tech at Night: Weekend Update
They’re always telling us Tor is so great because it’s used by foreign dissidents and all that, yet the anarchists keep using it to commit crimes, and the Tor mavens do nothing to stop it. And they wonder why Tor has a perception problem.
The Activist Left’s sympathy for Adam Mark Smith is worth its weight in gold.
If the Left truly feels that badly about what happened to Adam Mark Smith, they should have hired him a year or so ago.

Phil Robertson’s Point is Poorly Delivered but Nothing New
I first became aware of Phil Robertson’s recent controversial comments because Ace wrote up a criticism headlined “So Phil Robertson Is Yammering Again.” I disagreed with some of what he said but that was that and I went about my day. Then an article by Katherine Timpf at National Review titled “Stop Defending Phil Robertson – You’re Embarrassing Yourself” popped up as well and I started | Read More »
Now Saudi Arabia wants Nukes
Now that the Obama administration has caved to the Iranians and given the Mullahs exactly the kind of deal they’d want, it’s safe to say that the Middle East has just become a lot less stable. Given the number of countries in the region that don’t like Iran, even aside from Israel, this is hardly a surprise, and other than Egypt, Saudi Arabia is the | Read More »
Pro-Life Ohioans to a Point
From the diaries… Discussions regarding fetal personhood are unfortunately never-ending. In some minds, questions persist on life’s beginnings, what ‘quality of life’ is acceptable, and what crimes should unquestionably be “rectified” through (a second crime of) abortion. Recent legislation in the Ohio House of Representatives is focusing on specific restrictions on abortions which, surprisingly, not all pro-lifers support. On Wednesday, the Ohio House of | Read More »
Chris Christie signs bill to screw consumers and preserve a monopoly
We haven’t heard much from Chris Christie or about his presidential aspirations and that is just as well. Christie may very well be the most conservative governor we can elect in New Jersey but his governance is simply a shade more conservative that what you’d expect from a Democrat. New Jersey has some of the most Draconian gun laws in the nation. Merely transporting a | Read More »
Bernie Sanders’s wife involved in real estate scam?
Socialism, as they say, works until you run out of other people’s money. That appears to have happened to Jane Sanders, the wife of Vermont Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. The story is banal. A woman who has her job because of her husband’s clout finagles a credulous state agency into accepting bogus financial documents. Real estate is purchased. The fraud is discovered. The wife of | Read More »
No allies are safe from the manchild president
Yesterday, I wrote a bit about the petulant manchild president whose administration declassified a report detailing quite a bit about Israel’s nuclear program, which does nothing but validate the paranoid, extremist views against Israel in the Middle East. Earlier today, my colleague streiff wrote about the U.S. basically caving to Iran on its demands for a deal. Simultaneously, the Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo has | Read More »
