CNN: Radical Islam Is A ‘Made-Up Idea’
On CNN this morning, Daily Beast writer Dean Obeidallah was on as a guest with CNN’s Carol Costello to discuss the Saturday Night Live skit that is all the buzz this morning. It is a skit Erick wrote about. And that piece by Erick was a topic of discussion for Obeidallah, who made quite an amazing claim. This “made-up idea.” After Obeidallah the “comedian” says | Read More »
Judd Gregg Illustrates the Need for GOP Primary Reform
I happened to stumble across this piece by occasional Obama defender and former New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg which ostensibly defends New Hampshire’s right to continue to hold the nation’s first primary in perpetuity. In reality, the entire piece is actually an examination of the fact that New Hampshire historically has had an outsized effect on Presidential elections, not that it should have one. Essentially, Gregg’s “argument,” if | Read More »
A Simple Infographic to Understand the Choice in 2016… More Barack Obama or a Return to Reagan
One of the most difficult games to play in politics is the notion of what might have been… How might things have been different had JFK not been shot? How might have things have been different had Al Gore won in 2000? How might things have been different had Mitt Romney or Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 53% not run inept campaigns against | Read More »
White man asks the son of Cuban immigrants if he is Cuban enough
Mary Katharine Ham , in one of the very best single questions ever asked, proved herself to be very forward-thinking when she asked “WHAT IS THE POINT OF YOU, MARK HALPERIN?” To this day, no one can answer this question, but we all find ourselves asking it once again. (If awkward racial conversations trigger you, do not play this clip.) Halperin obsesses over [mc_name name=’Sen. Ted | Read More »
False gods, acquiescence, and Garland, Texas
I intend for this to be my last posst on Pam Geller and the Garland shootings unless something else happens. Many have said that my motto is “often wrong but never in doubt” but now I am developing some doubts about my position as articulated here: Geller had the right to do what she did, she’s not to blame, but I wouldn’t have done it. | Read More »
I don’t want Saturday Night Live that much any more, but I’m glad I tuned in last night. I caught the “Draw Mohammed” skit and it perfect captured the media’s hilarious refusal to deal with the issue. They’re scared. The Right Scoop caught the video. It is hilariously done. As I noted Friday, “History shows us over and over that the moment evil realizes you | Read More »
Google News is wrong: Gov. Jay Inslee (D, Washington) was not arrested on abuse-of-power charges.
There is no indication that Gov Jay Inslee (Democrat, Washington) is implicated in an abuse of power case involving a former bodyguard.

Foiled Again! UAW fails (for now) to strip VW employees of secret-ballot election
No-Vote Unionization. Given their very public (and political) push for the hallucinogenically-devised scheme known as “card check,” if unions had their way, employees’ right to vote in secret-ballot elections on whether or not to be unionized would be eliminated. Although card check failed as a matter of public policy several years ago, unions still often try to push their way into companies without employees voting | Read More »
Tech at Night: Rand Paul goes judicial supremacist while Netflix goes cronyist
So the US Congress is debating whether to renew the part of the USA PATRIOT act that ensures NSA can watch the communications of foreign terror cells that set up shop in the US, and communicate back home with their terror networks. That’s a good debate to have. We need to debate legislation before passing it.
May 8, 1945. V-E Day
“For this victory, we join in offering our thanks to the Providence which has guided and sustained us through the dark days of adversity. Our rejoicing is sobered and subdued by a supreme consciousness of the terrible price we have paid to rid the world of Hitler and his evil band. Let us not forget, my fellow Americans, the sorrow and the heartache which today | Read More »
My moment of candor this Friday
Were it me, I would not engage in the style of publicity and antics Pamela Geller and her organization engaged it. I take to heart Proverbs 3:34 that “He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.” I also take the golden rule to heart. I appreciate the point Martha McCallum and Franklin Graham made. Just because we have the right, does | Read More »
