When do we stop re-drawing the line?
One of the reasons I switched from being conservative pro-choice (genuine choice, not “choose to have an abortion”) to pro-life was because I recognized something, something I should have recognized a very, very long time ago: It becomes impossible to hold the line when the line is erased and re-drawn a multitude of times. The line I chose to hold was the 20-week line. Even | Read More »
GOP Failure Theater gave $1.5 billion to abortion industry
At a time when the human trafficking bill is locked up in the Senate over Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 10%‘s refusal to prevent federal funds from being used to provide abortions, the GAO has released a study showing Reid’s resistance as just a part of the rapacious, cash-(and baby)-vacuuming abortion industry. U.S. federal and state taxpayers sent nearly $1.5 billion to Planned | Read More »
The ‘Point/Counterpoint’ Sunday Open Thread.
Note: this isn’t Jay Cost’s point: it’s WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest’s. Earnest: “If you have to go back 2 decades to…justify something…today, it may raise some questions about…wisdom of what you’re doing” — Jay Cost (@JayCostTWS) March 29, 2015 Anyway, my response – again, to Earnest, not Jay. .@JayCostTWS …Wait, what? Isn’t that the Democrats’ ENTIRE JUSIFICATION for Hillary Clinton’s candidacy? — Moe Lane | Read More »
Expanded abortion law defeated in New York
For two years New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been pushing an Orwellian named ” Women’s Equality Act.” Most of the ten items in the bill were feel good things which already exist but for the sake of winning the War on Women, they were reiterated to make the radical feminists feel good about themselves. The bill has been held up in the New York | Read More »
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) 10% 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 »
