John Kerry Apparently Wishes we had a Leader like Iran’s Dictator
John Kerry has a disturbing habit of kissing up to foreign despots, particularly the Middle Eastern variety. Back in 2011, when the Syrian civil war was still just mass demonstrations, he went on record praising Basham al-Assad. Then, there was the time earlier this year he extended an over the top message of condolences to the Iranian Supreme Leader Hassan Rouhani over the loss of | Read More »
Around 6,400 Lois Lerner E-Mails Found
Anyone sufficiently skilled with computers knows that it’s extremely hard to make your data truly disappear without a trace, even when your hard drive crashes. Lois Lerner’s probably thinking about that right now. Earlier today news surfaced that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, the official IRS watchdog, found about 6,400 of Lois Lerner’s supposedly lost e-mails during its investigation. Even though these e-mails | Read More »
A Profoundly Decent Man and Family
Governor and Mrs. Perry are friends of mine. We all get to see Rick Perry as a politician, candidate for President, and longest serving Governor of Texas. I’ve gotten to see Rick and Anita Perry as themselves — covered in dust bunnies (“ghost turds” as the Governor called them) moving out of the Governor’s Mansion. We have traded prayer lists of people to pray for. | Read More »
Bob Corker, Craven Moron
It is difficult, in this hyper partisan era, to find areas of agreement between the chattering heads on the right and on the left. However, one thing that almost everyone can agree on is this: The Corker-Cardin Iran bill is an especially moronic display of political cowardice, even for modern day Senators. The first major problem with the Corker-Cardin bill is that it serves absolutely | Read More »
Alito Asks the Right Questions Which The Left Doesn’t Want Asked
What starts as a “rights” issue inevitably ends up enforced at the barrel of the gun, and this highlights the importance of correctly defining words, especially before the Supreme Court. In the end, our society has to get along on these issues and come to some agreement—even if it’s to agree to disagree. But society’s disagreements eventually work themselves out in law, and the Left’s aversion | Read More »
Democrat presidential field gets older, whiter and less masculine
Allegedly Vermont Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is set to announce his candidacy for the presidency. VPR News has learned from several sources that Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will announce his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday.

CNN @BrookeBCNN: Veterans causing the Baltimore riots
One of the tropes following most of America’s wars has been the maladjusted, drug addicted, pathological and violence prone veteran. While many associate that image with many films involving Vietnam (for instance, Rolling Thunder, any of the Rambo films) actually the image is quite old. Crime reports and popular literature following the Civil War featured opium addicted war veterans, war veterans who were emotionally damaged, | Read More »

Feminist attack on Protein World backfires
Nothing is more amusing that a screeching mob of radical feminists when they emerge from their lair in that liquidy out-house that is Tumblr, in a aura of patchouli with armpit hair braided for war. The newest object of their Two Minute Hate is a diet supplement company called Protein World (full disclosure, I do not now and have never used dietary supplements). Why, you | Read More »
Rushing to Judgment
I have no idea what happened to Freddie Gray. I know he was no angel. He had been in and out of trouble with the law. There were more than a dozen arrests for drugs, burglary, escape, etc. But it is hard for me to believe what happened to him was deserved. He may have been no angel, but we are all sinners. If the | Read More »
The End Game Becomes More Clear
Though you don’t need a rainbow sticker on the back of your car to tell the world you are black, the gay rights movement is intent on equating the struggle for black civil rights with their own quest to redefine marriage. And it was abundantly obvious yesterday that the Supreme Court recognizes this would be a redefinition of the institution. What also became obvious was | Read More »

More Clinton Foreign Money Hypocrisy: They Blasted Bob Dole for It!
(H/T: Buzzfeed) A few days ago, I wrote about how Hillary Clinton hit Barack Obama over shady nuclear industry dealing in 2008. Unsurprisingly, another problematic video has surfaced for the Clintons, and it has to do with foreign donations this time. For this one, we have to turn the clock back to 1996 for this ad where the Clinton-Gore campaign blasted Bob Dole for shady | Read More »
