Republicans Fund Monkey Drug Habits and Rat Ejaculate
In case you thought that Republicans had in any way turned their back on frivolous spending, here is a reminder that they have not.

Nancy Pelosi is Not Pro-Choice Enough for NARAL
Poor Nancy Pelosi just can’t seem to keep friends on either side of the fence. In an interview with Roll Call, Pelosi parroted her usual heinous talking points about how Republicans are evil and clearly want all women to die simply because they oppose killing tiny babies. She spent almost the entire time spinning reality in order to properly demonize Republicans. It would seem she | Read More »

SURPRISE: Al-Jazeera America Shutting Down After Less Than Three Years
After a bit over two years, Al-Jazeera America is shutting down and closing up shop. It seems the Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster was simply unable to find purchase in the American market. Analysis has been offered regarding the number of households where the network was available, editorial style, and so on, but I find it mysterious that no one is addressing the most obvious point. The | Read More »
President Obama Releasing 10 More “Hardcore” Terrorists in Deadly Ploy to Close Gitmo
President Obama is relentless in his pursuit of legacy, throwing caution (and our national security) to the wind. Tomorrow his reckless Administration is set to release 10 more “hardcore” terrorist enemy combatants from Gitmo.

Marco Rubio Is Now Getting Attacked Unfairly For Killing Charlie Crist’s Climate Scheme
In 2007, Florida’s newly-elected “Republican” Governor Charlie Crist announced, with much fanfare, a costly “cap and trade” plan to regulate carbon emissions by Florida electric power plants. In the Spring 2008 legislative session, Crist pushed the Florida legislature to adopt his mandates into law. During the months-long public debate on the plan, Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio called for free-market approaches to “clean energy” and | Read More »
Obama Plans “Audacious Executive Action” in Final Year
If you were expecting Obama, based on his State of the Union address, to be more interested in seeking compromise and working with Congress for bipartisan goals–and let’s be honest, who really was?–you’re about to be sorely disappointed.

The Establishment Revolution
Last night, after Nikki Haley’s response to the existence of Donald Trump (and Barack Obama’s speech, too), the most remarkable thing happened. People started calling Nikki Haley – yes, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley – a member of the “Establishment,” the shadow organization of Republican operatives who work to stifle the conservative movement. Think about that. Nikki Haley. Establishment. What? In the Donald Trump Era of | Read More »

The US Navy In the Persian Gulf Fiasco And American Power In the Age Of Obama
Yesterday, clearly as a bit of extemporaneous theater to celebrate Obama’s State of the Union self-idolatry, Iran seized two US Navy vessels and ten US sailors. The sailors and vessels have since been returned. However, what you are seeing above is what the Middle East is seeing. If you don’t feel a sense of shame, don’t read further.
