MSNBC Host Shares Her Beyoncé Abortion Fantasy
On MSNBC’s “The Melissa Harris-Perry Show”, the host of the eponymous program shared her “imaginings” this week about what signs pop diva Beyoncé could have danced in front of at last week’s MTV Video Music Awards. During the show, the singer performed in front of a huge sign that read “Feminist”. For Melissa Harris-Perry, that was simply not progressive enough. “So I have been having | Read More »
The President Is Not Checked Out
Many people suggest President Obama has checked out. He treats the ever growing threat of ISIS as an abstraction. Sources from within the administration are now more openly admitting that for almost a year intelligence and Pentagon officials have advised the President of the threat. He has chosen to do very little. Last Wednesday, he said we would “shrink” ISIS and make it “a manageable | Read More »
Tech at Night: Your phone calls and texts were never secure.
Sometimes, we forget just how little privacy we have against a determined attacker. So often we rely just on the fact that we believe our communications are of so little importance, that nobody will take the effort to try to snoop on us.
So once in a while we get concerned, when we hear about some sort of mass snooping, that means no extra effort has to be engaged to read our own individual, personal data. Then we want to assign blame, as though this mass snooping caused our lack of privacy.
We need to fix this muddled thinking and understand the limits of our privacy.

Another SEIU-Funded Fast-Food Astroturf Strike Coming To A City Near You
On Wednesday morning, SEIU-turned-fast-food-worker spokesman Kendall Fells appeared on Bloomberg Television spouting his SEIU-written rhetoric and making believe that the strikes that are to take place on Thursday in “more than 100″ cities are all part of grassroots uprising for higher wages that started in New York in 2012. The fact is, Mr. Fells must have ingested too much French-fry grease because he is really | Read More »
Obama signals no major action against ISIS
If anyone had hopes of a comprehensive response by the Obama administration to the growing challenge presented by ISIS after Obama’s remarks in Estonia today they are indeed optimists. But what I’ve said from the start is, is that this is not going to be a one-week or one-month or six-month proposition. Because of what’s happened in the vacuum of Syria, as well as the | Read More »
12 year old Florida kid runs lemonade stand; municipal officials… *don’t* shut it down.
So, there’s a 12 year old kid in Dunedin, Florida with a lemonade/baked goods neighborhood stand… you know where this is going, right? Of course you do. This isn’t the first story of this type that you’d be hearing. Suffice it to say… look, this guy? Don’t be this guy. In a scenario reminiscent of the relationship between fictional characters Dennis the Menace and Mr. Wilson, | Read More »
First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight
Kay Hagan has been running a surprisingly close campaign against Thom Tillis, in spite of the fact that Hagan has done almost nothing of substance to distance herself from President Obama, who is broadly unpopular in North Carolina (and even more so if you accept the proposition that most everything Rasmussen does these days is garbage). Tillis is facing his own popularity problems in North | Read More »
Rand Paul’s Transparent Duplicity on Iraq
Watching Rand Paul come to a decision on foreign policy can be a dizzying experience, even for seasoned watchers of the career of Mitt Romney. Two short months ago, as ISIS was already rampaging across the Iraqi countryside, Rand Paul went on MSNBC and declared that Obama was doing a fine job in Iraq and that any problems that occurred there were the fault of | Read More »
Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?
Brian Beutler, who is what passes for an intelligent thinker in today’s American left, wrote an article in TNR yesterday encouraging President Obama to immediately implement his plan to enact amnesty via executive fiat, instead of waiting until after the elections. More specifically, Beutler wrote that such a move would not only be good policy, but also good politics. The sole basis for this assertion | Read More »
Joe Biden Puts In The Labor On Labor Day
Image Credit Toke Signals and Female Celebrity Leave it to Huey “The Kingfish” Biden to give a Labor Day Speech where a bunch of people live who can’t find work. That’s what Barack Obama’s walking anti-assassination insurance policy was doing in Detroit, MI to waste his daily allotment of time and Dioxide on September 1, 2014. He’s telling the city that can’t pay for its | Read More »
The Only Answer to the Evil of ISIS: Eliminate it By Force
Yesterday I visited a museum that had a WWII exhibit which contained snapshots of newspaper headlines published just prior to the beginning of the war between Nazi Germany and Poland, and they reminded me of some similarities to our current geopolitical situation. Before Hitler’s steamrolling of Poland and most of Europe via blitzkrieg, various politicians in Europe attempted to negotiate with Hitler, allowed him to | Read More »
The American Aristocracy
At one point in American history, and a point I hope we get back to, if an American worked hard enough, he could work his way up through the ranks to great success. He did not need a college degree. In the upper stratosphere, connections helped and eased the way. But outsider could still work their way in through hard work. In Obama’s America, it | Read More »
The Hollywood Box Office Dilemma
“North American summer revenue barely cracks $4 billion, an eight-year low and down 15 percent from 2013,” read the sub-header at the Hollywood Reporter. The New York Times headline was “Movies Have Worst Summer Since 1997″. Grantland weighed in. So too the Wall Street Journal. I have seen a bunch of movies this year. I like the movies. One day I want one of those | Read More »
