Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil
I live in Macon, Georgia. We have a gang problem in parts of Macon. But in the early part of the twenty-first century we did not have a gang problem. At least we did not have a gang problem according to the new Mayor. In an historic election, the first black Mayor of Macon, Georgia declared there were no more gangs in the city.

The Question on Dave Agema is Not Difficult
Dave Agema is an RNC Committeeman from Michigan. The Republican National Committee will consider expelling him at its upcoming meeting. There are a lot of people who want to portray this as a complicated issue, but it is not. Agema should be removed. Agema has linked to, cited, and otherwise put forward a lot of information on the gay rights agenda and on gays. At | Read More »
The demographic shriveling of the Democratic party continues.
Oh, dear. It’s worse for the Democratic party than I thought. The GOP dominance in these predominantly white working-class districts underscores the structural challenge facing Democrats: While the party has repeatedly captured the White House despite big deficits among the working-class white voters who once anchored its electoral coalition, these results show how difficult it will be to recapture the House without improving on that | Read More »
Cassandra C. versus the Little Eichmanns
Nearly a year ago we covered the case of Justina Pelletier. She was a Massachusetts teenager who had the misfortune to have one set of doctors, those employed by the state, disagree with another set, employed by her parents. The Department of Children and Families took emergency custody of the teen on Valentine’s Day 2013 after a diagnostic dispute arose between some doctors at Tufts | Read More »
Follow the Money: Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
Anyone watching the NFL playoffs has undoubtedly seen the ads for this week’s release of American Sniper, the biopic of decorated Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. Kyle, who served four tours in Iraq, was an American hero. He saved countless lives and worked with disabled veterans after he was honorably discharged. He made the rounds on cable news and positively influenced just about every single | Read More »
New York Times Endorses Thought Crimes
This is a really amazing editorial from the New York Times. Kelvin Cochran, the Fire Chief of Atlanta, published a book (with permission from the Ethics Office for the City of Atlanta), in which he expressed his Christian faith on sex, marriage, and life. For that, the New York Times says he included “virulent anti-gay views.” Actually, Cochran endorsed orthodox Christian views. He was fired | Read More »
The Media’s Standard in the Terrorist Fight
Yesterday, while the President was speaking about cyber security, ISIS’s friends hacked our Central Command’s social media presence. The terrorists put up propaganda videos on YouTube and posted soldiers’ personal data on CENTCOM’s twitter feed. Leave aside the question of why CENTCOM has social media feeds. The dismissiveness of the American press over the data breach was staggering. ISIS published the home addresses of soldiers | Read More »
No Longer Chickening Out on This
I keep a separate site for my radio stuff. To the extent it hosts my content from RedState, it pulls in an excerpt and links backs here to send the traffic back. But there is one thing I’m going to put there that I will not put here. Several hundred listeners to my radio show have been encouraging me to do something that I kind | Read More »
Posting The Cartoons – an alternate PoV
First, let me say: I do not post this to condemn anyone who supports publishing the “Charlie Hebdo” cartoons or any other illustrations showing and/or mocking Islam’s Prophet Mohammed. This country has the right of freedom of speech/expression, and I do not support restrictions on it, nor do I criticize those who choose to exercise it. That said… My initial inclination after the murders of | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Harriet Miers moment. Seriously.
This is getting remarkable. We’re seeing some possibly unexpectedly hostile reactions to the administration’s decision not to send anybody to participate in France’s anti-terrorism unity march: Mike Lupica: “Everybody knows how complicated this country’s relationship with France has been, in war and in peace. Certainly there have been times when the leaders of France could have done better by us. We should have done better | Read More »
You MuhamMAD, bro?

It is not necessary for me to recount for you the events in Paris, the controversy that led up to them, or the consequences in the last week. This you already know. The whole world knows. It is enough to say that, in the name of Islam, terrorists murdered. In response to satire, terrorists, attacked. In the presence of free speech, terror tried to silence.
The Case Against Free Community College
Last week, it was announced that President Barack Obama would push for a new program allowing the government to pay for two years of community college for students interested. A program that would cost an already bloated government even more, it would also force those costs on states that participate. States like Louisiana, which mishandle education money to the point where there are almost regular | Read More »
ISIS Hacks CENTCOM While Obama Speaks
The President is speaking about cyber security and, while speaking, ISIS is making clear it has already hacked Central Command. Taking over CENTCOM’s twitter feed and YouTube account, they’re not only posting propaganda, but also detailing pictures taken inside US military facilities, war plans involving China and North Korea, the names and home addresses of US soldiers, etc. It appears the breach is pretty substantial | Read More »
The Last Garrison of Defense for Obama’s Legacy is Manned by Jonathan Chait
Writing in New York Magazine, former TNR stooge Jonathan Chait writes, somewhat counter intuitively, that History will be “Very Kind” to Obama’s legacy. This assertion comes ironically juxtaposed with the virtually universal blistering criticism Obama is receiving even from his most vociferous defenders (like Mike Lupica) for having failed to send even an administration representative (nevermind the President himself) to the anti-terror rally in Paris | Read More »
