Congressman Gutierrez on Immigration – Terrorism Works Like Hell!
Genicidier Wannabe Why should ISIS burn more people alive? It’s probably not even personal anymore. That sort of thing only strokes Mr. Jones until it gets boring. Well, there are logical reasons to chuck gays off the roof also. When dealing with squeam-livered Westerners, it has a positive ROI. ISIS just watches how Americans do politics and figure it’s the only | Read More »
The Ferguson protest movement: Ripe For The Plucking.
It’s like watching a horror movie, really. Admittedly, one where you’re not really emotionally invested in who lives and who dies, but there’s still that sense of Yeah, don’t go into the cellar. Yup, you went into the cellar. Fine, let’s get this over with. Here we go: The next move after expressing anger in the street is often the hard part for new civil | Read More »
Obama’s wasted opportunity to counter “violent extremism.”
When Barack Obama gave closing remarks at the “summit on countering violent extremism” yesterday a several things were obvious. The most salient of which is that the conference was more focused on trying to troll domestic political opposition than countering terrorism… which apparently is what “violent extremism” is. The man has no ability to be reflective. While Obama spends a great deal of time in | Read More »
Wisconsin Set to Pass Right to Work
In a surprise move, the Wisconsin Legislature has called an extraordinary session to pass Right to Work legislation that will curb the worst abuses of union power – the power to coerce workers in certain fields into mandatory union membership. The efforts of Scott Walker against the public sector unions and in support of growing GOP numbers in the Wisconsin legislature have apparently emboldened legislators | Read More »
#ILTurnaround: Gov. Rauner is Trying to Bring Fiscal Sanity to Illinois
Back in January, I made note of Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner’s proposals to take on the unions in his state and said that it would be worthwhile to follow his efforts over the coming years. Now, he’s giving us even more reason to pay attention and, in the process, making good thus far on his promise to bring change to the government of the Land | Read More »
Arkansas hands Western Civilization a small victory
As Erick has documented over and over in his chronicling of the “you will be made to care” trend in American culture, homosexual activists have successfully pressed their case for special rights in a number of jurisdictions. They have succeed in making their sexual proclivity a legally protected class, something that is awarded to no other behavior in America.Everywhere these bizarre little laws are put | Read More »
A Personal Favor: I Need Your Help
The State of Georgia is one of the states that never adopted religious freedom protections in the nineties because “it could never happen here.” Well, now at the state sees which way the wind is blowing, a majority of State Senators have come out in favor of S.B. 129, religious freedom legislation. I have been supporting this legislation for a year now. I have helped | Read More »

US announces future offensive in Iraq
At one time, back in the primordial mists of the pre-internet era, military operations were expected to comport with a generally accepted set of principles of war. They vary from nation to nation but the set used by the US military includes “security” and “surprise.” So imagine my shock when I read this in Reuters: An Iraqi and Kurdish military force of some 20,000 to | Read More »
Why the West Cannot Confront ISIS
It’s not just Barack Obama. A host of Western leaders are incapable of confronting ISIS. There is one major reason. They have sought to scratch the itch in the soul of man with materialism when men know deep down there is something more. The Islamic State offers the struggle and danger to satiate the wandering, restless soul of many seeking to be part of a | Read More »
Marie Harf has Turned all Democrats into Neocons
Nothing has been more amusing to me lately than watching various liberals fall all over themselves to defend State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf’s remarks that the best way to combat ISIS is with a jobs program. This fairly typical response indicates not only the fact that the defense is taking place, but also that it tends to be quite vociferous, laced with bad grammar and | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats Hate Guns and Gun Owners
Several months ago my colleague streiff covered the story of a single mother from New Jersey who made the mistake of carrying her legally purchased, registered, and permitted gun from Pennsylvania into New Jersey, believing that her Pennsylvania concealed carry permit was valid in NJ. Anyone who has ever been through a concealed carry permit class knows that they tell you if you get pulled | Read More »
