On Benghazi, Kevin McCarthy opens his mouth and removes all doubt
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 61%, the man who would be the next Speaker of the House, should have held his peace rather than run his mouth like a clown on Benghazi, handing Hillary Clinton some support for her false | Read More »
It’s Time to End the NCAA’s Corrupt Exploitation of Athletes
The Ninth Circuit issued a split-the-baby ruling yesterday in former UCLA athlete Ed O’Bannon’s ongoing antitrust litigation against the NCAA. Like most split-the-baby rulings, it left neither side happy and wasn’t particularly well grounded in law. Essentially, the ruling included two orders that were “favorable” to the plaintiffs, declaring that: a) The NCAA could no longer prohibit member schools from giving athletes full scholarships that truly | Read More »
You Want This Guy As Speaker?
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 61%, the man Republicans are looking at to be the next Speaker, just handed Hillary Clinton a campaign commercial and gave the left-media their newest talking point. McCarthy actually admitted that the Benghazi committee was designed to hurt Hillary Clinton politically and the left is having a field day. Never mind that the committee is trying to uncover | Read More »
Clinton email: Clinton owns Libya policy “from start to finish”
You don’t hear Hillary bragging very much about Libya these days, now that we see what happens when you overthrow an fairly harmless despot and replace him with Islamic terrorists. But such was not always the case. In those heady days before September 11, 2012, when our consulate in Benghazi was sacked and our ambassador along with three other Americans were murdered, Clinton and her | Read More »
Tulsa Sheriff Indicted in Connection with Shooting of Unarmed Suspect
Several months ago, we covered this story of the tragic shooting of an unarmed suspect at the hands of the Tulsa “police.” I put scare quotations around the word police because it turns out that the officer in question was actually a 73 year old insurance executive who basically purchased his way into an unpaid sheriff’s deputy position (complete with badge, taser, and gun) by | Read More »
Mom Jeans Foreign Policy
President Obama has done one remarkable thing in his time in office — he has made the American left turn a blind eye to human rights abuses around the world. American soldiers are being sent home for defending boys who are being raped by Afghan soldiers. Meanwhile, the left is peddling articles noting that pedophilia is just another lifestyle choice. Cuban dissidents are still imprisoned | Read More »
Top Secret Service official ordered release of Jason Chaffetz’s personnel record
If you recall back in March, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81% was point man as the Secret Service had its failures of commission and omission made public. On March 19, he had a particularly testy hearing over the handling of a suspicious package found on White House grounds that took the Secret Service over 20 minutes to respond. On April 2, articles | Read More »
The American Scientific Community Formalizes Its Status As A Pathetic National Joke
The rest of the world has yet another reason to take a break from their travails and laugh uproariously at The United States of America. It starts with one of smallest and most flagrantly mismanaged states. I’m unsure what makes me gladder not to be a resident of The State of Rhode Island. Either A) I could be relieved not to be represented by [mc_name | Read More »
Vladimir Putin Does In Syria What The US Electorate Should Have Done In 2012
Barack Obama is surprised that Vladimir Putin isn’t playing nicely in Syria. He is amazed that Russia has intervened on behalf of the butchers and thugs that tenuously cling to power in Damascus. He thinks we should fight ISIS with longer words and more complex syllogisms. Vladimir Putin thinks Barack Obama needs to take off his skirt or leave the battlefield to men. I’m pretty | Read More »
Rejected ambassador to Iraq promotes himself to ambassador anyway
Back in June 2012, the Senate held confirmation hearings for Brett McGurk to be ambassador to Iraq. To say that McGurk was a horrible choice is to not do justice to the man. I encourage you to read the full coverage to get a flavor of the massive flaws of the nominee. He traded US secrets with a reporter (thankfully, I suppose, female) with whom | Read More »
Russia, ISIS the Natural Consequences of President Obama’s Disastrous Foreign Policy
Russia’s power play in the Middle East, under the guise of targeting ISIS, is disastrous, dangerous, and deadly.
First, Russia’s aggression in Syria is on President Obama’s head. Second, elections have consequences, and we are only just now beginning to experience those disastrous consequences. Vladimir Putin’s insatiable quest for world power has run roughshod over President Obama’s intractable weakness.

CBS News hired a Hillary Clinton operative to advise on Benghazi coverage
Just a couple of hours ago I posted on a new Gallup poll that shows the public widely and deeply mistrusts the media. The Weekly Standard reports on a huge conflict of interest that is developing concerning CBS News. In March, an investigation by ProPublica and Gawker revealed that a “secret spy network” that was not on the State Department payroll, run by longtime Clinton | Read More »
The Stupidest Thing Ever Written About Pope Francis and Kim Davis
Gabriel Malor is a Republican gay rights activist who spends about as much time on twitter advocating for Republicans as he does trying to convince the world that his favorite sin is no sin at all. Thus we arrive at Malor’s take on Pope Francis having a private meeting with Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis. Just read this: Been asked about this in DM and, | Read More »
The C-SPAN monopoly is obsolete. We can do better.
Back in the 1970s, we had a vastly different technological climate than we have today. The ability to capture and record the proceedings of the US Congress, and bring that audio and video into people’s homes in real time, was something that only cable and satellite providers could accomplish. But we’re now over 36 years since the first C-SPAN broadcast. The ability to send a | Read More »
Washington Post: “partisans” are responsible for lack of trust in the media
There is a new Gallup Poll out on the public’s trust in mass media and it isn’t good. Naturally, Democrats are the most credulous audience, seemingly willing to believe most anything: But the bad news for the media is that the numbers are only going to get worse over time. Eventually we’ll see grads of Columbia’s Journalism School living in refrigerator cartons beneath the overpass | Read More »
