Rahm’s struggle for power
In case you didn’t know, Chicago mayor and Obama ally Rahm Emanuel is up for re-election and… it actually isn’t looking very good. Emanuel has mounted an extremely expensive, high-powered push to get past 50 percent of the vote—the threshold he needs to win reelection outright and avoid an April 7 runoff. The X-factor in the race seems to be black voters, so Emanuel has | Read More »
McConnell Flashes His Yellow Belly
Right now, this is the headline at CNN.com. For those who don’t know, the CNN.com website is regularly orders of magnitude more liberal than their television broadcast. When I first loaded the site, I was stunned to find that even CNN.com was reporting the DHS shutdown story in this way: But then I thought, why wouldn’t it be reported this way? What other way is | Read More »
The Greek Socialists are Full of It
Back on January 25th, Greece’s Coalition of the Radical Left, also known as Syriza, won a plurality of the vote in the country’s elections, and joined with a smaller party, they became the country’s governing party. The most important part of Syriza’s platform was that they were radically anti-austerity. In his victory speech, leader and now Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said the following, per the | Read More »
Hollywood’s Self-Indulgent Delusional Demagoguery
Last night, Hollywood conducted its annual ritual of worshiping at the altar of self-indulgence and self-love, the Oscars.
As part of this cultish ritual, the event included the traditional parade of political leftist propaganda. The liberal elites of Hollywood take to the microphone to tout whatever the leftist cause de jour happens to be, as the rest of Hollywood eats it up with standing ovations.
For anyone who has an ounce of critical thinking ability (critical thinking, not PC dogmatic zombism), it’s almost unbearable to watch (it’s like watching sausage being made, with rotten meat, and then watching someone eat it, on prime-time TV).

Hillary and the Obama does not love America and is not Christian kerfuffles
Image Credit: Shutterstock.com I don’t want to spend much time focusing on the ongoing kerfuffle over President Obama’s patriotism and religion. I wasn’t going to write about it at all until a brief Twitter conversation with Glen Reynolds and others. This is not a winning issue for Republicans or Conservatives. Nevertheless, it does present an important reminder about the double standards of the biased media | Read More »
February 23, 1945– Raising the flag on Mount Suribachi
On February 23, 1945, AP photographer Abe Rosenthal took what may very well be the most iconic war photograph of all time. He caught members of the 28th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division, raising the American flag on the highest point on the island of Iwo Jima. This took four days after the island was invaded. The battle was by no means over. Of the | Read More »

Stop Playing Useful Idiot for the Press-Democrat
The 2016 campaign season has regretfully started in earnest, and thus the Press-Democrat has begun their regularly-scheduled ritual of trolling the Republican candidates with questions that are irrelevant to how well they would perform as President: do you believe in evolution? Do you think Barack Obama (who isn’t running again) is a Christian? Do you think he loves America? The point of these questions is | Read More »
Congressional Republicans Preparing to Investigate NASA Temperature Tampering
In the short few months since the 2014 midterm elections, Republicans have already committed many sins, but their willingness to investigate abuse, fraud, and deceit by governmental agencies is not among them. Their newest target appears to be the scandalous temperature tampering by activist scientists to push the global warming agenda forward. The Daily Caller reports on this citing a series from [mc_name name=’Rep. Dana | Read More »

Washington Post: Scott Walker’s Throne of Skulls is real
The Throne of Skulls is for real. The Washington Post has noticed. In an article carried on the front page, above the fold the Post announces Wisconsin Unions Crippled by Clash with Walker.

Stop the Reauthorization of No Child Left Behind
There is bipartisan agreement that No Child Left Behind is a terrible policy that has wrecked havoc in American schools. But, as I noted Friday, Republicans in Washington intend to reauthorize the terrible legislation. I’ve turned on our action center. Go tell your member of Congress to oppose reauthorization of No Child Left Behind. They need to hear from you. They’ve convinced themselves that you | Read More »
All the President’s Boot Lickers Still Pretend Obama is a Christian
They routinely lament on twitter that there surely must be more important things than conservatives focused on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, the Libyan disaster, the Syrian disaster, the growth of ISIS, the resurgence of Al Quaeda, etc., etc., etc. They lament that we are a frivolous society easily distracted from important things. They give awards to deep thinkers who write 20,000 word | Read More »
