Slate’s William Saletan: the dumbest man on the internet
Sometimes you read stuff so bizarre that it simply takes your breath away. Slate, which set the standard of intellectual rigor with its epic expose of the cruel sport of monkeyfishing, has always been a motherlode of lackwits who can be counted upon to say the most bizarre things to boost their pageviews. One of the black holes of intelligence at Slate is a guy | Read More »
The Amtrak Crash: When Government is Ideological Instead of Lawful and Logical
Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous. For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste. They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government money. Except Amtrak has received over $30 billion since its 1970 inception. The last spending bill signed by | Read More »
The Republicans in 2016 Are DOOMED!!!!!!
Every once in a while you stumble into a news cycle and think, “This cannot be a coincidence.” As news reports bring word that Hillary Clinton is still refusing to answer questions from the press, Ramadi falls to ISIS, and things just aren’t going well for the Democrats right now, fear not. The press steps in with its usual “The GOP is doomed” headlines. We | Read More »
Loretta Sanchez commits a microaggression
The California senate race is shaping up nicely. Two rabid and dimwitted progressive harpies, Congresswoman Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) 15% and Attorney General Kamala Harris, are locked in a cage match to succeed another rabid and dimwitted progressive harpy, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 8%. Sad to say, one of those two will be a US Senator and thereby, as | Read More »
The Mayaguez Incident
The hijacking of the Maersk Tigris by the Iranian armed forces and their attempted piracy of the Singapore flagged Alpine Eternity it is fitting that we take a look at a similar incident that took place 50 (math is hard) 40 years ago. On May 12, 1975 the US container ship, SS Mayaguez passed within 12 miles of Cambodia, then under the Khmer Rouge regime thanks | Read More »
The Fall of Ramadi.
Ramadi has fallen, and I completely and totally blame Barack Obama and his antiwar movement lackeys for that.

Bernie Sanders supporter finds new and exciting way to waste $2.5K.
This is entertaining at first glance; but it’s really kind of sad. When Paul Joffe saw that BernieSanders[.]com was available for purchase in early 2014, he just about lost it. “I figured that if I could buy it, anyone could buy it and that is bad,” said the diehard Sanders supporter. “I was worried that somebody would buy it and redirect it to BernieSucks[.]com or | Read More »
Ted Cruz Was Fearless Yesterday
Last night in Georgia, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% spoke to the delegates at the Georgia Republican Convention. Regular readers of RedState know that the Speaker of the House in Georgia, collaborating with gay rights activists, left-wing Democrats, and big business, scuttled a state version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Action in exchange for Democrat votes on a billion dollar tax increase. | Read More »
Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA
No Empire Which Makes Poor Policy Is Immune To Downfall. For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their | Read More »
Tech at Night: Combating Net Neutrality
We’ve exposed the entire Net Neutrality gimmick as a fraud. Netflix was lying, FCC was lying, none of it was honest. In fact they’re now turning antitrust into the next crisis not to waste. So now there are people out there trying to beat the Obama power grabs.
Jeb Bush Debates Jeb Bush. Guess Who Lost?
Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Jeb Bush predictably has to receive the hot potato that was Emperor Bush II’s invasion of Iraq. He decided he would be tactically supportive of his familial predecessor to the Royal Throne of The American Empire in an interview with Megan Kelly. Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com This greatly miffed the vast pits of lucre that | Read More »
Islamic State seizes key portions of Ramadi, we’re-still-calling-it-Iraq.
Well. I guess we now know why it was suddenly important to ask all the Republican candidates whether they would have gone into to Iraq, knowing now what we knew then. It was done apparently to distract from the fact that the current Democratic President is still busy losing the war that the Republican President won for him: “Islamic State fighters took control of key sites | Read More »

Obama: that chlorine gas Syria is using, well I’m fine with it
On April 22, 1915, the German army launched an attack to reduce the Allied salient at Ypres, Belgium. After the preparatory bombardment died down, the Germans released chlorine gas from canisters (5730 90-lb canisters) they had moved to the frontline trenches. The gas, which is heavier than air, was propelled by the wind and seeped into trenches manned by French reservists and colonial troops. Panic | Read More »
NATO foreign ministers meet to discuss Russian aggression
I’m thinking of giving up blogging. Maybe I’ve lived too long (there are many who would vote ‘yes’ on that question). Maybe the world has changed in ways that leaves me a stranger. I could handle homosexual marriage and the idea that some people think Obama is an “orator” and the notion that three lesbians could “marry” and do whatever it is they want to | Read More »
