Revenge Replaces Hope And Change
Frank Luntz tells us that Trump supporters are not just angry. They want revenge. They seek vengeance for Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. These Trumpeteers see the Donald as the antidote for all that Obama has made wrong with America. Trump’s bombastic attacks on the Republican establishment, the mainstream media and his critics are cathartic for the millions who feel “silenced, ignored and even scorned by the governing and media elite.”

Tamir Rice and the Media
The shooting of Tamir Rice and the lack of indictment of the two officers has spurred many questions, complaints, defenses, and general thoughts about the case. These will continue through the remainder of the holidays and eventually fold into the general topic of police brutality toward blacks in the United States. The relationship between law enforcement and the black community will continue to be a | Read More »
(VIDEO) Hillary Clinton Supporters Are In Favor Of Sharia Law
Yes, there are people who should have to pass an IQ test before they are allowed to vote and when you deal with partisan Democrats you aren’t interacting with people who are susceptible to reason. The only alternative you have is to make damned sure you beat them at the polls.

I found the perfect computer OS for Hillary Clinton
In a recent debate, Hillary Clinton suggested we should give government the keys to read all your encrypted data, hearkening back to the Clipper Chip idea of her husband’s administration. Well I have good news for her: I’ve found the perfect computer operating system for her to use, and I challenge all her supporters to switch to it.
Is Jeb Bush the Comeback Kid? Or Is He Pining For the Fjords
Michael Brendan Dougherty, writing in The Week, asserts that Jeb Bush is on the correct path to repeat John McCain’s come from behind success in 2008. This might be prescient or it could quite possibly be the dumbest thing you’ll read today.

Tamir Rice and the Policeman’s Day in Court
A country where those responsible for dispensing the justice of the State are held to a lower standard of behavior than the general public is a country that invites tyranny on itself. Believing that most cops are good at their job and fair to the public doesn’t require a defense of the principle that cops ought not to face the same scrutiny as ordinary people do from prosecutors every day. In fact, it should require the opposite.

(VIDEO) Bernie Sanders Makes A Push To Attract Trump Voters
At first blush, it sounds crazy. A socialist, running in a Democrat primary, who has made a career of limiting American influence abroad thinks he can attract voters from a GOP candidate who is running on the motto “Make America Great.” But that is part of the plan of Bernie Sanders. The underlying idea apparently is that Trump is channeling anger and Sanders is channeling | Read More »
Marco Rubio’s Path to Victory
If Rubio fizzles in Iowa, unable to get third there, and then fizzles in New Hampshire, he starts to slow down significantly as voters and the press look to see who did better than Rubio in New Hampshire. If it is Chris Christie, we’re going to hear a lot about him as we head to South Carolina. And because of Christie’s terrible gun views, the south is going to consolidate even more quickly to Ted Cruz. That makes it harder for Rubio to regain any momentum.

Hope In The Aftermath of Texas Tragedy, A Dog Is Rescued From Debris (VIDEO)
Just one day after Christmas, North Texas was hit with a devastating storm that produced EF3 and EF4 tornadoes, and damaged over a thousand homes. Living in Tornado Alley, we get our fair share of tornadoes, but this one was the second deadliest tornado outbreak in the DFW area’s history. Eleven people were killed in the storms, including a 3-day-old newborn baby. The Rowlett City Manager | Read More »
Donald Trump can’t even do Christmas cards right. What a dope!
I’m technically a donor to the Donald Trump campaign. I bought a hat as a historical curiosity. So, apparently that meant the Trump campaign (which is under serious pressure from Ted Cruz by the way) wanted to send me a Christmas card. The problem is, it didn’t even come in time for the start of Christmas! Failure!
The Burmese Government Just Jailed One of their Citizens for Making Fun of their Military Uniforms in a Facebook Post
The title here is not at all an exaggeration or a mischaracterization. Myanmar, which at least theoretically took a major step forward as a country (in terms of things like basic human rights) this year by kicking out what was effectively a military junta. Myanmar stunned the world when the country held elections that were actually reasonably open and resulted in a peaceful transition of power to | Read More »

State Department Declares Bringing Peace To Syria As An Accomplishment
If you read the news you would be excused for thinking there is actually a war going on in Syria. You’d also be forgiven for thinking that Syria, never a Garden of Eden, has collapsed into a festering, effervescing puddle of FAIL that can’t even aspire to the worth term of Third World S**t Hole. But you would be wrong. While you were wasting valuable | Read More »
New York Times Compares Hillary Clinton To Harriet Tubman… Or Something
There are occasions when I look at the New York Times and wonder how, if it were actually owned by the Democrats in general and the Clintons in particular, would it be different from the current newspaper that apparently believes it is an objective reporter of current affairs. Today is one of those moments. Case in point: How Hillary Clinton Went Undercover to Examine Race | Read More »
Relying On Muslim Communities To Fight Terrorism Is A Counterproductive Strategy
Ever since 9/11 we have been harped at the left on two issues — other than the US deserving the 9/11 attacks, I mean. The first of these is that we shouldn’t give into the completely understandable human impulse to strike back at the religious community that has spawned one conscienceless murderer after another and the second idea is that we need to be really | Read More »
