New Leftist #HotTake: “Syrian” Refugees Are Just Like the Jews In the 1930s
Writing at the Washington Post, one of their reporters, a guy named Ishaan Tharoor, claims, against all evidence: Europe’s fear of Muslim refugees echoes rhetoric of 1930s anti-Semitism. Tharoor, comes at this problem from the point of view of any other privileged Ivy League graduate who would never, ever have to live in the craphole he is trying to foist upon others. Small wonder: After | Read More »
How Reformers Want to Make It Harder for Law Enforcement to Keep Cash, Property They’ve Seized
PHILADELPHIA—In state capitals and courtrooms across the nation, lawmakers and lawyers are challenging a tool used by law enforcement to take property and cash from Americans who, in many cases, have not committed a crime. But in no other city is the convergence of efforts more evident than Philadelphia, where attempts to reform “policing for profit” aren’t limited to the state capitol and federal courts. | Read More »
Why Drought Does Not Cause Terrorism, Or Bernie Sanders Has A Senior Moment
More and more frequently one is left with the feeling that there is actually nothing too bizarre for the left to believe and, by the same token, there is nothing that the left believes that the mainstream media won’t insist is true. We’ve seen that with the “rape culture” on college campuses. We see it a University of Missouri, which, we are told, is a | Read More »
John Bel Edwards Won’t Say He’ll Fight Syrian Refugee Placement #LAGov
All weekend long and well throughout the day today, the topic of conversation has been on the attacks in Paris. Here in Louisiana, perhaps more than anywhere else, there is a strong connection with the French: It’s in our culture, it’s the basis of a (rapidly dying) local language, and it is where we as a state came from. The Paris attacks have now given | Read More »

How Disastrous Was Obama’s Press Conference In Antalya, Turkey?
Worse than you can possibly believe. The truth is evident. Barack Obama is a tiny, timorous man who is intellectually unable to comprehend the challenge facing the United States and Europe from ISIS and even if he could recognize the challenge he is morally incapable responding. While at the G20 meeting in Antalya, where he will kiss the ring of Vladimir Putin along with any | Read More »
Yes, Virginia. There is a War on Christmas.
Yes, Virginia, despite what the Media may say, there is a very real War on Christmas. It comes every year at the beginning of November, and it is one of the most culturally devastating wars we currently face. However, unlike the other cultural wars we fight (the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc.), this one does not feature a faceless villain. The villain | Read More »
Barack Obama is an Enabler of Evil
Obama on ISIS: “There will be an intensification of the strategy that we’ve put forward.” — Fox News (@FoxNews) November 16, 2015 He is not a damn fool. The press today is battering the President over being a damn fool. He is not. He is an enabler of evil. This is the man whose world view was shaped by an anti-American communist mentor. This is | Read More »
We’re going to hear a lot about ‘Islamophobia’ in the coming weeks, as the pacifists all run in to counsel inaction in the face of terror. But today on Twitter I learned what the real definition of Islamophobia is, courtesy of Donna Driscoll.
Never Trust a Democrat With Your Foreign Policy
People expect too much of the office of the Presidency these days. Part of that has to do with the way Presidential campaigns are run – candidates have to basically promise that they have an idea or a solution for every problem under the sun. Think about it – when was the last time you heard a candidate for President – for either party – | Read More »
While Paris Was Being Bombed, Barack Obama Released Osama Bin Laden’s Bodyguard From GTMO
My sister called me this morning wondering why I hadn’t written anything about it. I had not even heard about it. I did not see coverage on the news. But, it turns out that while Paris was being bombed President Obama released Osama Bin Laden’s former bodyguard from GTMO along with several other men. The men had all been cleared for release during the Bush | Read More »
On the day ISIS related terrorists spread out across Paris and killed more than one hundred people, Barack Obama claimed ISIS was “contained.” After the attacks, liberals actually tried to argue that the attacks in Paris showed how successful Barack Obama had been because ISIS was having to lash out to get attention. Yes, liberals actually argued this. Earlier this year, while President Obama still | Read More »
Democrats: The Party of Freeloaders Unite
Saturday night, the Democratic Presidential candidates joined up again to debate the best way to ruin America. To their credit, all of the candidates seem quite capable of accomplishing this task. But listening to them drone on, it’s clear they have only one tactic up their sleeve: tell people that everything should be free. If something is already free, it should give better benefits. If | Read More »
Facebook Should Reverse Its Support of Government’s Net Neutrality Fantasy
Network Neutrality is a unilateral and completely unnecessary government-intrusion-and-imposition on the entirety of the Internet – and the trillions-of-dollars-economy that has arisen around it. Net Neutrality is one fantasy – based upon another. Fantasy: The evil Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will – at some indeterminate point in the future – start blocking you from getting to certain websites. (In this way it is very similar | Read More »
Marco Rubio is the New De Facto GOP Frontrunner
Many people erroneously assume that polling is the exclusive determiner of who should be considered the frontrunner in a race. As we discussed last week, at this point in the game, polls are definitely an important data point, but they are by no means the only data or even the most meaningful data this early in the race. Remember: the Iowa caucuses occur almost a | Read More »
