John Boehner is Right on Impeachment
I maintain that John Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is a political stunt. There may be some plausible legal grounds to get the suit into court, but even if successful President Obama will be out of office before such a suit is finally resolved. It’s a political stunt wasting taxpayer dollars. I maintain that the House Republicans should be more interested in doing what is | Read More »
The stress of citizenship
I once worked for a company that put its employees through one of those lengthy performance evaluations that included psych-test essay questions, such as “How do you define ‘stress,’ and how could you reduce the amount of stress in your workday?” I was young and new to such evaluations, so I’d never really thought much about “stress” before. I was convinced it had nothing to | Read More »
Harry Reid deracinates Clarence Thomas.
I’m telling you: Harry Reid was hit one too many times in the noggin without suitable head protection.

Your W, T, and F of the Day Brought to You by Jen Psaki and the US Department of State
The State Department’s spokesman, Jen Psaki, was asked about Hamas’s role in the unity government within the Palestinian territory. QUESTION: Well, what about the – what about Palestinian President Abbas sending a strong message to Hamas? I mean, you are recognizing his government, of which Hamas is a part. I mean, doesn’t he bear some responsibility for reining in Hamas? MS. PSAKI: We don’t recognize | Read More »
The Left is using racist slurs about Barack Obama again.
I imagine it must be horrid, to define yourself by what you hate.

Republican Fantasy Fan Porn vs. Democrat Fantasy Fan Porn
There is a dark undercurrent in the Harry Potter world. Abnormal and obsessed fans generate fan pornography based on the fantasized love interests in Harry Potter. Yes, be as disturbed as I was to learn this. But Washington politicos do the same. Not a day goes by without some left leaning reporter trotting out new theories about how Hillary Clinton will lead neocons and moderate | Read More »
Rep. Louie Gohmert on Border Crisis: We Can’t Trust This President…
Last night Rep. Louie Gohmert appeared on the O’Reilly Factor to discuss the flood of illegal alien minors at the border. Rep. Gohmert, who is from Texas, spoke passionately about the crisis at our border and warned that President Obama shouldn’t be trusted at all on this issue. (h/t Caleb Howe at Truth Revolt) Before noting that President Obama could not be trusted, Gohmert spoke | Read More »
August is never good, September could be worse
August is when things happen in politics. Typically, it’s a scandal, and it hurts sitting presidents and their parties. Right now, the crisis at the southern border looks to be the next big thing about to really bubble over (it’s bad now, but reports of terrible diseases among the camps could make this a lot worse). It’s a terrible situation because the Democrats were banking | Read More »

The Watercooler ~ To Impeach or Not to Impeach
The recklessness of President Obama’s presidency is finally reaching critical mass and leave it to Sarah Palin to proclaim to the nation that it is time to impeach the man. Starting with what Sarah sees as Obama’s deliberate attempts to flood the nation with illegal immigrants, she then lists all the reasons he deserves impeachment concluding with this: It’s time to impeach; and on behalf | Read More »
New York Times supports Hamas human shields while condemning Israel
The Hamas terrorists controlling Gaza never waste a crisis. The senseless murder of teenager Mohammad Abu Khedir by Israeli teens, acting out revenge for the triple kidnapping and murder of teens Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frankel, was used as justification for massive rocket barrages on Israel.
Those barrages have now reached Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.
But while the Israelis prepare for a long, deadly war with warplanes, 40,000 reserve troops, ships and tanks, Hamas is preparing for a different war. Hamas’s war is fought with thousands of cheap rockets, human shields, video cameras, and the world press.

Barack Obama’s Border Funding Plan is a Bad Idea
Barack Obama has flown to Texas to fundraise. He won’t actually go visit the border. But he did come up with a $3.7 billion plan to deal with what’s happening. Senator Tom Coburn is voicing his opposition. The GOP would be wise to listen to Senator Coburn. As he noted last night on Crossfire, “That’s $60,000 per child we will spend, in emergency money.” He | Read More »

In recent days and weeks, we’ve witnessed and unprecedented escalation of radical Islamic violence and persecution of Christians in the Middle East and North Africa.

Jim Hinch and the Politico Get Off On Another Evangelical Fantasy
Evangelicals are beginning to support gay marriage. That is what Jim Hinch claims in the Politico. His evidence? A liberal Methodist church, the declining mainline Presbyterian Church (USA), and a lady who left a Methodist Church for a UCC Church. Anyone who knows anything about Christianity in America knows the Methodists, PCUSA, and UCC are not evangelical churches. Oh, but there is that one preacher | Read More »
The false narrative of ‘both sides don’t understand each other over Hobby Lobby.’
I like this Megan McArdle post on the clashing ideological worldviews on Hobby Lobby, but I object to her suggestion that the Left and the Right “misunderstood each other so profoundly — and continue to do so even after all the screaming.” That’s not even remotely true: I (and most of the rest of the Right) understood the Left’s position on the case from the beginning. I just | Read More »
