Obama Warns Putin Not to Do Something He’s Already Done
This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad. Fresh off his appearance at a UN Climate Summit (which, so far as we can tell, appearing at a climate summit is the only plan Obama has to combat ISIS), Barack Obama warned Vladimir Putin not to do something he has already done, i.e., intervene in Syria’s civil war: Paris (CNN)President Barack Obama warned his Russian | Read More »
Obama in Paris: Mass Shootings Just Don’t Happen In Other Countries
In Paris on Tuesday, President Obama had a press conference as part of the Paris global warming convention, when he said something so monumentally insensitive that, for once, I actually agree with the idea that Obama should be apologizing on our behalf abroad. For electing him. Obama was talking about the heinous murders that took place last week in Colorado Springs, and he made the | Read More »
Why Aren’t There as Many Attacks on Abortion Clinics Overseas?
An article today in ForeignPolicy.com purports to claim that attacks on abortion clinics are “largely” a United States phenomenon. Foreign Policy is normally a pretty solid (if a bit lefty and internationalist) rag, but this particular article is long on speculation and outright errors and short on actual facts. The sole basis for their claim is that they asked someone from the Guttmacher Institute (a | Read More »
Slate Goes Full Metal Douchenozzle About Colorado Springs
One sure sign that the world has reached “peak douchebag” will be when Slate goes out of business. That hasn’t happened yet. So they have sent out William Saletan to recycle a tired old trope the left trots out to make themselves feel superior: the real threat to America is white Christian terrorists. In fact, he subtitles his silly little screed Forget Syria. The most | Read More »
How a Local Crime Story about Workplace Violence Becomes National News
When it turned out that Pennsylvania late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell was guilty of even worse butchery than the average abortionist, in that he (inter alia) also killed the children who survived his attempted abortions as opposed to merely those who didn’t, the media was infamously disinterested. Even when it turned out that fully grown women had died as a result of Gosnell’s gross indifference to | Read More »
The Most Surprising Thing About the Colorado Springs Shooting
This past Friday, a lunatic who lived in a shack with no running water or electricity killed three people in Colorado Springs, CO. He wound up going into a Planned Parenthood facility. Three people were killed. None of those were abortionists or patients. A pro-life Christian preacher/police officer was one of the victims. At 3:30pm on Friday, while the facts were shifting and things were | Read More »
Media Smear Ted Cruz: He Did Not Claim Robert Dear Is A Transgendered Leftist Activist
Laziness and sloppiness have become all too common traits among modern day journalists and reporters. Media bias is easy for journalists to wave away. They see accusations of bias simply as an excuse, largely made up by Republicans and conservatives in order to deflect away from their own mistakes or incompetence (or my favorite, “tough reporting”). I think a lot of journalists truly believe what | Read More »
Tapper v. Trump – Tapper by KO in the 2nd (VIDEO)
One of the pushbacks liberals offer to the complaint about the liberal bias of the media is, “what you conservatives really want is just openly conservative media.” I can only speak for myself, but I don’t think that’s largely true. I don’t particularly want to get “news” from Hannity any more than I want to get it from Chris Hayes. Maybe I am old fashioned, | Read More »

NYC Graffiti Writer Uses Star Wars Brilliantly to Send Up ISIS
I get sent about a billion story pitches a day, almost none of which even get opened, but this one caught my eye, from a website I’d never heard of called Ratter. For the more sensitive, I should warn you that this story involves an F-bomb pretty prominently, so click at your own risk. The story, as it goes, is that a prominent NYC graffiti | Read More »
The One Big Reason Why the West Can’t Defeat ISIS
ISIS has probably been the subject of more wishful thinking in the West than any other foreign policy challenge since the Cold War. Some of the thinking has been useful, much of it is mere stupidity masquerading as policy discussion. One of the best reviews of how to beat ISIS appears in POLITICO. Unwittingly, it also makes the case for why the best approach can’t | Read More »
Welcome to the Demilitarized Zone, United States
Apparently, some crank over the weekend posted online an unspecified threat of gun violence against the University of Chicago. Get it? Some anonymous jerk posted in some online forum something about shooting up the quad. Not, you know, setting off a bomb in a building or anything – bringing a gun to campus. The FBI passed this information on to the Univ. of Chicago administrators, | Read More »
We Have A Real Problem In America, But It Has Nothing To Do With Guns
“How many more Americans need to die before we take action?” Hillary Clinton asked the crowd at the New Hampshire Jefferson-Jackson Dinner late Sunday. She went on to shamefully politicize the shooting that occurred Friday at Planned Parenthood in Colorado, ironically urging others not to use women as a “political football.” Self-awareness: it’s not for everyone. As Clinton went on to UNEXPECTEDLY use women as | Read More »
Watch out for this leading misconception about Cyber Monday
Today is a day that online retailers have claimed as their own, for getting people to get online and buy stuff. It’s somewhat obsolete now, as online shopping is simply taking over for a lot of people, but the idea’s still out there. But there’s one huge misconception about online shopping: that it’s tax free. It’s actually not, yet it’s hugely popular anyway!
The Cruz Surge Creates GOP Establishment Panic And Paralysis
None of us knows how this election is going to play out, but the one thing that we can say is that this has been the most entertaining presidential primary season ever. By far the most amusing part has been the utter state of panic the GOP establishment has been in since the voters took a look at their “electability” candidate, Jeb Bush, and started | Read More »
