The French Fight the War of Words Right: Call ISIS “Daesh”
I need not elaborate on the ridicule that the American public heaped upon President Obama for describing the Islamic State as “un-Islamic”, and much as I agree with said ridicule, I can understand the logic of the decision. After all, one tactic for fighting your enemies is to call the not the true representatives of their ideology, country, religion, and so on. Still, I am | Read More »
Radical Cleric Anjem Choudary Allegedly Netted in Terrorism Arrest
This should not be surprising to anyone who is familiar with Mr. Choudary. You might remember him as the cleric who has made several appearances in American and British media defending various radical Islamist groups. He’s also fine with ISIS’s many atrocities. Indeed, his own students were handing out leaflets at a pro-ISIS protest and he has “no sympathy” for British hostage Alan Henning. A group | Read More »

Wanted: Grown Ups
I was alone among my friends when it came to the ad below. It is called “The Woman Who Made Up Her Mind.” The ad was produced by “Better Together,” the campaign that argued against Scottish independence. The ad features a mother sitting at the kitchen table talking about her worries, her family, and her children’s future. The ad was spoofed, pilloried, and derided around | Read More »
Tech at Night: Harry Reid to push the Sales Tax bait and switch
Harry Reid is going to put a bait and switch on the agenda in the lame duck session. This is important to watch, because it’s a substantial power grab that appeals big government, tax-and-spend Democrats, as well as squishy, cronyist Republicans. That’s exactly the kind of sour grapes coalition that could pass a bad sales tax bill after the November elections.
Watch your wallet.

#protip for Sen. Mark Udall (D, Colorado): if you’re gonna brag that your dad ran for President…
The Mark Udall campaign has gone absolutely INSANE over this ad, by the way. It’s remarkable, how much so.

The #PeoplesClimate March exposes the Climate Campaign for the Socialists they are
This past Friday, just over 300,000 people gathered in New York City* for a “People’s Climate March” to push the climate change/global warming agenda forward, and over the weekend, the related “Flood Wall Street” protest developed on its heels. Among the more notable attendees were Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, and Edward Norton. If the media had any honesty, what we would have heard from the major | Read More »
CO-Sen: Cory Gardner’s New “Nice Guy” Ad
Colorado present Republicans with a great opportunity to pick up a Senate seat this November. Democrat Mark Udall has consistently been rated as one of the most vulnerable incumbents this cycle. Republican candidate Cory Gardner, currently one of Colorado’s Representatives, is our party’s standard bearer in the race, and he has been working hard to ensure Colorado elects a Republican for the 114th Congress. His latest | Read More »
The Epic #Fail that is the Democrats latest attempt to drive Rush off the Air
At some point, you really have to wonder when they’ll stop trying. Every other attempt the Left has made to get Rush Limbaugh taken off the airwaves has ended in failure, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying, and failing, again and again. This time, though, the effort was especially laughable. As Breitbart describes it: Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get — in their | Read More »
Fools, Dupes, and Knaves: a quick primer on the modern antiwar movement.
Note: your Aunt Peggy who doesn’t like it when we send troops abroad to places where they’re getting shot at, and who happens to say so at Thanksgiving dinner, is neither a Fool, a Dupe, nor a Knave.

Obamacare architect: 75 years is enough for anybody
An interesting essay by Obamacare architect, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel called Why I Hope to Die at 75 is making the rounds. It is significant for a couple of reasons. First, it provides an insight into how the secular elites are coming to regard life. Secondly, Emanuel had, and continues to have, enormous influence on how health care policy is developed in the United States. Let | Read More »
One Year Ago Today: Ted Cruz and the Conservative Fight
One year ago today, Ted Cruz took to the floor of the Senate and gave a very long speech railing against Obamacare. The law has been a documented disaster, so much that some Democrats still fear the effect the law could have on their races. Senator Cruz, who knew going in he would not be successful in trying to hold up the Senate, nonetheless stepped | Read More »
Obama orders Army division headquarters to Iraq
Presumably this group will be deploying in flip-flops so they won’t constitute “boots on the ground”: As the U.S. expands its war against the Islamic State, the Army is preparing to deploy a division headquarters to Iraq. Officials have not identified the division that will deploy — the first division headquarters to go to Iraq since the U.S. withdrawal in 2011. An official announcement is | Read More »
Vincent Sheheen Blames Nikki Haley for Kids’ Deaths, Then Walks It Back
The Democrats sure are desperate this year. Over in South Carolina, the Democrats’ gubernatorial nominee, Vincent Sheheen, is accusing Nikki Haley of killing kids. Three children were killed by their guardians within the Department of Social Services. Sheheen wants everyone to know Nikki Haley was actually the murderer. Except Sheheen got basic facts wrong to make his case. He ran with the ad, then had | Read More »
Nothing says respect like a smart salute
From Army Field Manual 7-21.13, The Soldier’s Guide: 4-7. The salute is not simply an honor exchanged. It is a privileged gesture of respect and trust among soldiers. Remember the salute is not only prescribed by regulation but is also recognition of each other’s commitment, abilities, and professionalism. In a way we shouldn’t be surprised. After living through the dark years of the Clinton regime | Read More »
