Joe Biden said something incredibly stupid in Iowa today.
Joe Biden decided to make sure that the Democratic candidate in 2016 runs on how much like Barack Obama he is! …Use of pronoun deliberate, there.

Through the Looking Glass with Nick Kristof
In a meandering, non-sequitur riddled column today, the nation’s dumbest opinion columnist Nick Kristof sewed together enough tropes and canards to make a beautiful, dizzying tapestry of leftist narrative out of completely unconnected events in world news. In the land of Nick Kristof, the refusal of judges to issue gay marriage licenses in Alabama, combined with an atheist killing three Muslims in North Carolina, all | Read More »
US Marines disarmed by Yemeni militia
Remember back when our operations in Yemen were the model for how Barack Obama was going to wage bloody war on ISIS: This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out [the Islamic State] wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting | Read More »
The Reptile’s Mask Comes Off On Gun Control
Bloomberg’s Nightmare Is A Black Man Owning One of These Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said. “These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends | Read More »
Tech at Night: Barack Obama’s Internet Regulation plan really is bad news
Critics who don’t want to debate the merits of expanded government like to portray the Net Neutrality debate as activists vs Cable Companies™, but this isn’t that at all. This is the people vs. the Obama administration, as it is with EPA, NLRB, and every other overreaching regulator. Don’t take my word for it. Commissioner Ajit Pai says “The American People are being misled about | Read More »
Media suddenly interested in vetting candidates’ college years
Scott Walker has come from out of nowhere (if you weren’t paying attention), survived three elections in four years as a Republican in a blue state, and is making waves with statements and policies that drive the Left insane. However, there is one thing that makes Walker different from other potential presidential candidates – he never finished college. And, the college life of a presidential | Read More »
Obama’s AUMF should be DOA
The abject failure of leadership by Barack Obama continues apace. The draft AUMF submitted to Congress is just another example of an administration that is so pathological that it feels like it must lie to stay in practice. For instance, Obama’s own letter to Congress simply lies about the nature of the operation. His letter says: My Administration’s draft AUMF would not authorize long‑term, large-scale | Read More »
Obama’s AUMF is Actually a DUMF
Right now, everyone in the media, led on by anti-war Democrats and the Obama administration itself, is reporting that Obama has sought an authorization for use of military force (AUMF) to fight ISIS. It is being reported as a bold move for the administration and a shift towards a more hawkish approach to foreign policy in general and with respect to ISIS in particular. This | Read More »

Atheism and support for homosexual marriage: proven indicators of a violent nature
Somebody has to ask the question. Should atheists and supporters of homosexual marriage be allowed to own a firearm? Does adhering to either of these beliefs indicate a mental deficiency, disorder, or infirmity that rises to the level that in the interest of public safety we should insist that they be disarmed? In light of today’s horrible shootings is Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we need | Read More »
Gov. Bruce Rauner (R, Illinois) is… actually going to go to war with the unions.
If I’m not careful, Bruce Rauner may actually make me slightly less cynical about Illinois politics.

Scott Walker Not Done Collecting Skulls for his Throne
After winning two bruising electoral battles in the last 3 years, and making structural changes to Wisconsin’s budget with Act 10, you might be forgiven for thinking that Scott Walker would likely rest on his laurels as he prepares for an anticipated 2016 campaign. You would be wrong. Walker has released his proposed Wisconsin budget for this year and it is loaded with cuts to | Read More »
Feminist aborts baby boy because patriarchy
So what does a young feminist do when she mysteriously finds herself knocked up and she hates all men, even those she chooses to rut with? And, horror, the baby is a boy.
First They Shut You Up, Then You Will Be Made to Care
I have to quibble, slightly, with the Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch. In a piece last week Sonny wrote that he did not think I was quite right with my phrase “you will be made to care.” Instead, he thought it should be “you will be made to shut up.” I would suggest that he stops too soon. Yes, along the way to making people | Read More »
