New polls: Trump can’t lose and Hillary can’t win
There are a couple of interest new polls out on the 2016 election campaign. In terms of numbers, they are probably slightly more accurate than examining a chicken’s entrails under a full moon but they seem to accurately reflect the zeitgeist. First up: SurveyUSA. In an election for President of the United States, today, Labor Day, business provocateur Donald Trump narrowly defeats Hillary Clinton, Joe | Read More »

Candidates Will Be Questioned. They Should Have Serious Answers.
Attention all current and future presidential (and vice-presidential) candidates: You will be questioned. Running for president is a long and intense job interview, and it takes place in front of an entire nation. It is an absolute requirement that you be extensively questioned. Voters must have enough information to determine whether you deserve their vote or not, and if you’re capable of being on the | Read More »
Your Daily Donald Trump Moment of Zen
Stressed by the holidays? Vexed that your kid is heading back to unknown challenges at school? Concerned about the fate of the country or the world at large? Here. I give you this video of Donald Trump explaining why he was opposed to the Iran Deal. Or… I mean, I guess that’s what he’s explaining? Let us not burden ourselves, though, with such mundane questions as | Read More »
Be Wary of the Refugee Crisis
I write this with the full knowledge that the bleeding hearts of the world will frown upon it, but it is an alternative side of the refugee crisis in Syria that we must be wary of. It is an absolutely terrible crisis that we need to pray for, and we do need to see that these people who have fled their homes because of the devastating | Read More »
Rhetoric, Reality, and Blue Lives Matter
If you listen to any paid spokesman for a police organization, or most any conservative pundit who opines on the subject of the police in America, you would get the idea that violence against police is up in this country. Way up. Worse than anyone can ever remember it being lately. The executive director of the National Fraternal Order of Police suggested as much in | Read More »
Colorado Mine Spill: Government Says No Disaster Relief for Navajo
The situation surrounding the clean up of the Colorado mine spill’s toxic waste continues to get uglier. Last month, I wrote about how the Navajo were struggling to deal with the effects of the spill and how the EPA was trying to cheat them out of pursuing legal action against the federal government. Now, the federal government is denying disaster relief to the areas affected | Read More »

Shocker: Saudi Arabia, Qatar don’t want any of THOSE people from Syria coming over.
Saudi Arabia and Qatar will take in as few Syrian refugees as they can. This should not surprise you.

Hillary’s fixer in the State Department: Patrick Kennedy
If there is one person to credit for Hillary Clinton dodging the bullet for her malfeasance and misfeasance at State Department it is a guy named Patrick Kennedy who is the Under Secretary for Management. He is a career employee and arguably the most powerful single person in the State Department as he controls basically everything that happens there. I’ve never met the guy, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s new explanation makes matters worse
The Hillary Clinton campaign has another excuse for the private email server. I guess this means today is a day ending in ‘y.’ To bring you up to date. Right now we know that, at a minimum 188 emails existed on Hillary Clinton’s private (remember this term, it is important) email server. We know at least two of those emails contained information that originated with | Read More »
Fewer Women in Government Than Men? So What?
The poor women of these United States. We are so under-represented in American politics. It certainly must mean that discrimination is to blame as we survey elected office, and find that there are fewer women than men. Certainly nothing can account for that lopsided nature, other than the evil Patriarchy, right? This is all nonsense, of course, but it seems each new election cycle the | Read More »
Carson Over Trump Every Day of the Week, and Twice on Sundays
As I stated yesterday, it’s evident that the Trump phenomenon isn’t going to go away any time soon. However, it’s also equally evident that the Ben Carson phenomenon isn’t going away any time soon, either. How do I know this? A couple of points from the polling released yesterday indicates that Carson’s current base of support in the polls is very stubborn and that his | Read More »
Munich Olympics Massacre. September 5, 1972
Around 4:30 am on September 5, 1972, a group of Canadian athletes returning from an illicit night out in Munich was scaling the chain link fence around the Olympic dormitory compound. The were joined by 8 other men. Once inside the Canadians went on their way, none the wiser to the fact that their companions had been a commando squad of Palestinian terrorists. The terrorist | Read More »
The Syrian Humanitarian Crisis: another cost of the Iran nuclear deal
Faysh khabur, Iraq. 14th August 2014 — Displaced members of the Yezidi community carrying goods and food cross the Tigris river on the Faysh Khabur bridge crossing as they make their way from Syria into Iraq. — As the evacuation of displaced members of the Yazidi community from the Sinjar Mountains continues, thousands of displaced people cross the Iraq-Syrian border at | Read More »
An Unserious Candidate for an Unserious Country
It’s time to stop assuming that the Trump phenomenon will collapse under its own weight. Trump has held a continuous lead in the RCP polling average since July 20th. That’s already longer than any candidate not named Mitt Romney held the lead in 2012, and Trump’s lead is growing rather than shrinking. His main competition at this point is Ben Carson, | Read More »
