No Longer Chickening Out on This
I keep a separate site for my radio stuff. To the extent it hosts my content from RedState, it pulls in an excerpt and links backs here to send the traffic back. But there is one thing I’m going to put there that I will not put here. Several hundred listeners to my radio show have been encouraging me to do something that I kind | Read More »
Image via Shutterstock.com While the first day of the 114th Congress was met with snow, it did not slow down pro-life members from making good on their promises to make pro-life legislation a priority in the new session. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) 85% and Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) 91% reintroduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection | Read More »
Posting The Cartoons – an alternate PoV
First, let me say: I do not post this to condemn anyone who supports publishing the “Charlie Hebdo” cartoons or any other illustrations showing and/or mocking Islam’s Prophet Mohammed. This country has the right of freedom of speech/expression, and I do not support restrictions on it, nor do I criticize those who choose to exercise it. That said… My initial inclination after the murders of | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Harriet Miers moment. Seriously.
This is getting remarkable. We’re seeing some possibly unexpectedly hostile reactions to the administration’s decision not to send anybody to participate in France’s anti-terrorism unity march: Mike Lupica: “Everybody knows how complicated this country’s relationship with France has been, in war and in peace. Certainly there have been times when the leaders of France could have done better by us. We should have done better | Read More »
You MuhamMAD, bro?

It is not necessary for me to recount for you the events in Paris, the controversy that led up to them, or the consequences in the last week. This you already know. The whole world knows. It is enough to say that, in the name of Islam, terrorists murdered. In response to satire, terrorists, attacked. In the presence of free speech, terror tried to silence.
The Case Against Free Community College
Last week, it was announced that President Barack Obama would push for a new program allowing the government to pay for two years of community college for students interested. A program that would cost an already bloated government even more, it would also force those costs on states that participate. States like Louisiana, which mishandle education money to the point where there are almost regular | Read More »
ISIS Hacks CENTCOM While Obama Speaks
The President is speaking about cyber security and, while speaking, ISIS is making clear it has already hacked Central Command. Taking over CENTCOM’s twitter feed and YouTube account, they’re not only posting propaganda, but also detailing pictures taken inside US military facilities, war plans involving China and North Korea, the names and home addresses of US soldiers, etc. It appears the breach is pretty substantial | Read More »
Meet the ‘Other’ Woman Union Bosses Want in the Oval Office
While many on the Left (and the Right) believe that the Presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton is a foregone conclusion, there is another woman that many on the Left—and of greater importance, within labor’s ranks—would rather see become President and they are beginning to voice their preference ever more loudly. Enter Democrats’ more liberal senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Last week, the AFL-CIO hosted a | Read More »
The Last Garrison of Defense for Obama’s Legacy is Manned by Jonathan Chait
Writing in New York Magazine, former TNR stooge Jonathan Chait writes, somewhat counter intuitively, that History will be “Very Kind” to Obama’s legacy. This assertion comes ironically juxtaposed with the virtually universal blistering criticism Obama is receiving even from his most vociferous defenders (like Mike Lupica) for having failed to send even an administration representative (nevermind the President himself) to the anti-terror rally in Paris | Read More »
The Future of Europe Hinges on France
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the state of the EU, the appalling absence of U.S. leaders in Paris and why France may determine the future of Europe.

French PM Didn’t Want Netanyahu in Paris, Declares French Republic Failed If Jews Flee
For all the pageantry displayed in Paris in support of Charlie Hebdo’s free speech, and against the terrorists who slaughter innocents, France remains one of the least hospitable (read: most anti-Semitic) places for Jews in Europe. While the New York Times concerns itself with a possible backlash against Muslims in France, and supporting those who refuse mandatory military service in Israel, it’s clear that Jew | Read More »
What Feeds The “Far-Right” According to The New York Times
Killing For Muhammad Feeds The Far Right The press today is an army with carefully organized weapons, the journalists its officers, the readers its soldiers. But, as in every army, the soldier obeys blindly, and the war aims and operating plans change without his knowledge. The reader neither knows nor is supposed to know the purposes for which he is used | Read More »
Où Est Le Président?
Where is the President? Yesterday, in Paris, the people took to the streets to stand against Islamic extremism. The Israeli Prime Minister, Palestinian leader, the Jordanian King who is a direct descendant of Mohammed, the German Chancellor, and various other heads of state joined together with thousands upon thousands of French citizens and others to rally in the face of Islamic extremism. President Obama did | Read More »
So, President Barack Obama skipped the French anti-terror unity march.
There is a very simple explanation for this: “President Barack Obama will not join other world leaders at Sunday’s Paris march in tribute to the victims of this week’s Islamist attacks in France, a US official told AFP.” Basically, President Obama legitimately and genuinely does not understand why it is necessary for him – or a sufficiently dignified surrogate* – to represent our country at | Read More »
The New York Times needs to get all of their people off of Facebook.
All of them: the rot has set in. To summarize… Marc Cooper, a journalism professor at USC (Annenberg), asked on Facebook what seems to be a fairly reasonable question: if the New York Times doesn’t think that Islamist fanatics killing a dozen people over the publication of satirical cartoons justifies showing said cartoons… hold on a minute. Moving on… Marc Cooper asked: if the current number of murdered cartoonists, | Read More »
