Sen. Barbara Boxer (D, California) cuts and runs.
is retiring. If you listen, you can hear the faint sounds of Democratic politicians all across California as they get up from their breakfasts and calmly go to open up their weapons caches. For there will be a Democratic war in the primaries over this. A California Senator’s seat? Oh, my, yes, but there will be a Time Of Troubles. Lots of people want that | Read More »
Jeffrey Epstein and the triumph of the cultural 1%
The unfolding scandal of financier, liberal philanthropist, and convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein is interesting from a political standpoint but it is also revealing as a cultural marker. The baseline of the story is that a billionaire liberal Democrat named Jeffrey Epstein was sentence to a short prison term in Florida after receiving the red carpet treatment after his arrest rather than a perp walk. | Read More »
Moral Relativists Troll #CharlieHebdo Attacks
It is truly amazing the leaps that some will make in order to continue their own narratives no matter what realities are getting in the way. Moral relativism is the refuge of the morally ambiguous. Those who believe that concepts like “good” and “evil” are constructs of ideologies and that the truly enlightened have long since dispensed of these cursed absolutes. Never recognizing the contradiction | Read More »
The Media’s Main Bias is Anti-American
Kudos to the Islamic terrorists yesterday who shot up the Charlie Hebdo offices yesterday for doing so in such a way that the media could not pretend that they were not Muslim or that their belief in radical Islam was not the primary motivating factor for their actions. Having been robbed of their normal playbook of refusing to use Islamic names or to report that terrorists | Read More »
200 Years Ago Today: The Battle of New Orleans
On January 8, 1815, the final engagement in the Battle of New Orleans took place. This battle was a huge victory for the United States, even if the War of 1812 was technically over while it was being fought. This battle, more than any other in U.S. History, was responsible for not only developing a national identity, but in establishing the United States as a | Read More »
Destroying a Man Because He Offends You
I really, really hope you will listen to at least the first five minutes of this because you will be made to care, whether you realize it or not. The sidelines shrink daily.
Ron Paul on Paris terror attack: B****es had it coming
I try to ignore Ron Paul and his spawn as much as humanly possible but sometimes the doddering old fraud just goes too far. As a recap, Muslim terrorists, or at least everyone in the world thinks they are Muslim terrorists except the Obama administration, stormed the offices of a Parisian magazine that happens to poke fun at Islam and its Mohammed. People were killed. | Read More »
The Terrorists Win
A publisher published something that offended. It mocked, it offended, and it showed the fallacy of a religion. It angered. So the terrorists decided they needed to publicly destroy and ruin the publisher in a way that would not only make that destruction a public spectacle, but do it so spectacularly that others would think twice before publishing or saying anything similar. The terrorist wants | Read More »
Administration ignored warnings about ISIS
We have repeatedly chronicled how the policies of the the Obama administration are directly responsible for the rise of ISIS and because of that bears partial responsibility for the slaughter that has raged in Syria and Iraq over the past two years. In short, the misbegotten embrace of “Arab Spring” destabilized Syria while creating an al Qaeda safe haven in the power vacuum we created | Read More »
[Breaking] Probable Islamist attack in Paris: 11 dead at satirical magazine.
Via @PhilWillSays comes this report of Islamist* terror in Paris: “Armed men stormed the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning, killing 11 people and injuring more, French President François Hollande said. The men opened fire inside the magazine’s offices using automatic AK-47 rifles before fleeing, a police officer said.” The ‘Islamist’ bit is not yet confirmed; but, given that this isn’t | Read More »
Time for a 2020 Vision, Not Platitudes
Whoever the next President is, he will seek a second term in the year 2020. For the Republicans, they should take advantage of 2020 and tell us with foresight, not with hindsight, what their vision for America is. And I want to extend an invitation to all of them from Jeb Bush, who has announced, to the rest who will announce, to share their vision | Read More »
Atlanta’s Mayor Fires the City’s Fire Chief For Being a Christian
In 2013, more than a year ago, Atlanta’s Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran wrote a book called “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” The book outlined his Christian faith. Chief Cochran is popular with Christians in Atlanta. Having previously left Atlanta to work for the Obama Administration, he came back as Fire Chief and wrote his book. His book was published more than a year | Read More »
Mitigating the Suck
I campaigned for Jody Hice and Barry Loudermilk in Georgia. They both said they were opposed to as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Today, the both voted for him, having previously voted against him in the Republican Conference. They both stood behind that as their justification to vote for him today, but their constituents thought otherwise. For an hour on the radio in Atlanta | Read More »
It’s official: the Obama administration hates it when you have cheap Keystone oil.
It only took three relentless Congressional electoral cycles to get Barack Obama to admit it, too. Not that the administration wants to admit it, even now. They just ran out of options: The White House on Tuesday for the first time issued a veto threat over Republican-backed legislation to approve the Keystone pipeline, setting up a likely showdown between President Obama and the GOP-controlled Congress in | Read More »
On the Election of John Boehner as Speaker of the House
Yes, it has always been pretty much a fait accompli that Boehner would be elected speaker. And yes, it looks like conservatives were unable to deny Boehner the victory on the first vote, although it was closer than I initially believed. That said, I think that both sides of this debate are wildly overreacting to what happened here. I think the anti-Boehner side is way | Read More »
