“4 or 5″ US-trained Syrian rebels remain in the field
I am not kidding you. A top U.S. military commander for operations in the Middle East acknowledged on Wednesday that there are only four or five fighters left from the first group of 54 Syrian fighters that had been trained by the U.S. as part of a $500 million program. By way of comparison, Planned Parenthood is able to kill several hundred thousand babies each | Read More »
New York Times confirms The Daily Beast’s ISIS/intelligence scoop.
BOOM goes the dynamite: “A group of intelligence analysts have provided investigators with documents they say show that senior military officers manipulated the conclusions of reports on the war against the Islamic State, according to several government officials, as lawmakers from both parties voiced growing anger that they may have received a distorted picture about the military campaign’s progress.” Government inspectors specifically looking at CENTCOM (United | Read More »
Mad As Hell At Boehner & McConnell, So You Support Trump?

Other candidates (most notably Rick Perry who is sadly no longer | Read More »
McConnell Plans More Failure Theater on Iran
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% thinks you are stupid. His staff thinks you are stupid. In fact, his regard for your intelligence is such that he’s convinced you would drown like a young turkey if caught outside in a downpour. That is the only explanation for what he’s up to.

Obama administration banning products for being made more appealing
The Obama administration wants you to think that they’re banning some products of R. J. Reynolds in the name of safety, however the truth is Obama’s FDA is banning these new cigarette brands because they might appeal better to smokers. Obama is banning the free market, by penalizing companies for making their products more appealing, in one of the craziest nanny state moves yet.
New Polls: Jeb Bush sucking swamp water in Florida
To me the Jeb Bush candidacy is the GOP mirror image of the Hillary Clinton candidacy. Party apparatchiks and big money donors decided that the Tweedle-Dee-Tweedle-Dum(b) combination presented fewest risks to the status quo. Both were bland, milquetoastish types who would be damned unlikely to upset any apple carts. Both Bush and Clinton figured that it was their turn. So it was a perfect match. | Read More »

Men For Choice: Cowardly Counterparts
Men? To the women of the pro-choice movement, you are generally useless, misogynistic pigs. Your ways bring vexation. The horrid practices you engage in like opening doors, daring to pay for the restaurant bill on a date, or respectfully complimenting a woman on her appearance are just the worst. You should be ashamed of these things, and you should seek to ingratiate yourself with the | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Is Right On This Too
This is going to make certain people as upset as it made them when Rush said it, but it does not make it less true. The other day, Rush was talking about a segment of the conservative intelligentsia who think writing a column or delivering a clever line on television is all they need to do in commitment to the cause. They don’t want to | Read More »
ABC Politicizes the Muppets and Attacks Christians
ABC is just one of the many reasons my wife and I no longer let the kids watch television in our house. The network has decided to politicize The Muppets. First, Miss Piggy went on MSNBC to declare herself pro-choice and pro-everything as she got a feminism award. Now they’ve got the pro-abortion pig in Time Magazine discussing monogamy. This all comes on the heels | Read More »

Just check out this quote from Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) 66%: | Read More »
