Why Do Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s Rape Stories Keep Falling Apart?
As of this moment, we are now up to three stories about rape that Sabrina Rubin Erdely has written that would not pass responsible journalistic muster. The most prominent, of course, being the now-withdrawn and discredited UVA hoax, the second being this story about “Billy Doe” in Philadelphia, and the third being her story about Petty Officer Rebecca Blumer. Sabrina Rubin Erdely is trying to | Read More »
Ted Cruz will have the money to compete.
There are only four words we need to take away from this Bloomberg report about Ted Cruz SuperPAC fundraising: Thirty one million dollars. I don’t know whether he will win or not, but Ted Cruz will be able to raise the money to compete in this Presidential primary season.
South Carolina Police Officer Charged with Murder After Shooting Unarmed Man in the Back
Here is a story that once again demonstrates that the most important public service you can perform is to record the police at every opportunity. I was first alerted to this story by Ace, who has a portion of the video at his site. A longer version of the video is available at the New York Times, who apparently were the original recipients of the | Read More »
The Cavaliers Sue The Roundheads
Says it all about fake rape charges. CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A fraternity at the University of Virginia announced Monday that it will “pursue all available legal action” against Rolling Stone, saying a Columbia Journalism School review shows the magazine acted recklessly and defamed its members by publishing an article that falsely accused them of gang rape. “The Rolling Stone article | Read More »
Though not yet announcing a Presidential campaign, Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas is coming out pretty forcefully on dealing with national security and Islamic terrorism. He has a piece here at RedState this morning on the very issue. He’s also out with a new video on the subject — one that I think resonates. As someone who hates snakes, I’ll have nightmares from the video, | Read More »
Crisis management is not a strategy- neither is isolationism
From Christian decapitations to radical Islamist victory marches, crisis and chaos is erupting across the world. The Obama Administration’s “crisis management” foreign policy has produced one thing: anarchy. In Syria, President Obama drew a “red-line.” President Bashar al-Assad responded by launching chemical attacks against women and children. In Egypt, our longtime ally, Obama’s team willingly accepted the disastrous power grab by the Muslim Brotherhood. Instead | Read More »
Salon’s Brittney Cooper has Lost Her Faith and Her Mind
Britney Cooper thinks she’s cornered the market on Jesus. A white-hating, microaggression-avoiding, birth-control-loving, sexually free, and “possibly queer” Jesus. Of course she’s lost her mind, along with whatever faith she has as a “practicing Christian.” Then again, Salon.com published this puddle of intellectual putrescence because they need the clicks, right? As a practicing Christian, I am deeply incensed by these calls for restoration and reclamation | Read More »
Thank You, Senator Paul
I hope the other Republicans candidates say what Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% said today. In Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% pointed out both Republicans and Democrats have been driving up spending. He said Republicans cannot win by being Democrat-lite, but they too have contributed to the national debt. It is true. And it is something the GOP | Read More »
Obamacare’s rather foolish birth control mandate gets another day in court.
The Democrats would have been better suited to never have a birth control mandate in the first place.

April 7, 1865. Prelude to Appomattox
On April 6, 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia lost 8,700 men, about one-fifth of its strength, at the Battle of Sayler’s Creek. As a result, Lee lost his rearguard and any hope he had of eluding Grant and linking up with Joe Johnston in North Carolina vanished. Lee, observing the action, was heard to say “My God! Has the army been dissolved?” Moreover, the | Read More »
Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s OTHER Possibly Fake Rape Story
Everyone I spoke to in connection with this investigation was crystal clear that at no point did Sabrina Erdely or Rolling Stone ever contact them whatsoever, even to ask for background information. This is exactly the same lapse in journalistic standards that doomed the UVA story and ultimately led to its retraction. The fact that it occurred in this story is indication of a systemic problem with Rolling Stone and Sabrina Erdely’s reporting, not of a single lapse in judgment.

Mike Pence and Asa Hutchinson are out of step with America.
As Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson flail about trying to accommodate the insatiable demands of the homosexual left, Dave Weigel, reporting at Bloomberg Politics, has some bad new for them. They are out of step with most of America. In doing so, all of the critics are on the wrong side of public polling. According to a March edition of the | Read More »
Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid
Well, surprise surprise, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% is officially running for President. However, in the category of actually surprising news, Paul’s basic argument for his primary candidacy is… that he’s the most electable candidate in the field. Seriously. Paul gave a sneak peak into what his message will be in a pre-announcement video that has been prominently featured on the influential conservative | Read More »
.@SallyKohn is a dishonest lackwit
The key issue over the Indiana RFRA and the similar bill in Arkansas (as well as the bills currently in effect in about 30 other states) is pretty simple. Can someone use the force of law to compel you to either violate your religious beliefs or be punished. For all observant Christians, homosexual acts — not the sexual attraction per se — are sinful. Homosexuality | Read More »
