Blake Hounshell and the Fake Objectivity of the Modern Press
There are a lot of news stories that happen from day to day when the press somehow manages to come to a consensus that what has happened is a Bad Thing. For instance, when Donald Trump released Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 44%‘s personal cell phone number, the tone (and sometimes outright content) of mainstream reporting indicated that Trump had done a Bad | Read More »
Jesus Was Wrong About Greed
Jesus was wrong about greed. There is nothing wrong with the accumulation of wealth. It gives me peace of mind. It makes it so I can, if I want, take care of others and be generous. It is my money. I should be able to do with it as I want. With more and more money, I can accumulate nice houses and eventually a private | Read More »
Response to Stephen V. Monsma
Stephen Monsma is a bright intellectual light, and he also appears to be a confessing Christian. He recently wrote a piece for The Center for Public Justice titled, “Neither a Christian Nor a Secular Nation,” in which he proposed that our nation needs to adopt principled pluralism as a guiding concept. His conceptual model is based on recent Michigan law that will authorize faith-based adoption | Read More »
UN Security Council lifts ballistic missile embargo on Iran
Hidden in the fine print with the UN Security Council lifted the sanctions on Iran’s nuclear weapons program on Monday was a sweetener for Iran. The embargo on selling Iran ballistic missiles and ballistic missile technology was lifted. This means that as Iran continues to develop a nuclear weapon with American and European assistance, it will have open access to buy and develop a ballistic | Read More »
Bad Bills Are Like Bad Relationships: We Don’t Need a Break – We Need a Break-Up
Just about all of us have been there. Dating someone – and it isn’t working. You don’t get along. The person doesn’t give you what you want. You aren’t happy. You each try to change the person, hoping a tweak here or there will suddenly, magically make it work. It doesn’t. You’re friends don’t like the person. Heck – THEIR friends don’t think you two | Read More »
What today’s Q-Poll showing Democrats losing in key states does and does not mean.

EPA Could Care Less About Poor Children
Too Poor To Deserve Electricity According To USEPA Child poverty remains astoundingly high in America. This true despite risible claims that our economy is in recovery. The stock market and housing prices recovered. A lot of people gave up looking for work so the statistics look better. Beyond that, it’s the same situation we had in 2008. Particularly when we count | Read More »
The Whores of Moloch Preside Over the American Press Corps
I often call the DC-NYC press that covers politics the circle of jerks. The euphemism implied in it aptly describes the typical coverage we have come to expect out of the press corps covering politics. But I think it is worth noting that, at root, they are whores of Moloch. Moloch was the Middle Eastern idol to whom many pagans sacrificed children. The sacrifices were | Read More »
The Iran Deal Has A Twitter Account
The “I Can’t Even” I’m feeling right now is enough to make a teenager at Starbucks tell me to calm down. The Iran Deal has a Twitter account to stop the spread of misinformation about the Iran Deal. You know, that misinformation that the Chiefs of Staff, Congress, several world leaders, and the American public seem to be focused on. The misinformation that, if you | Read More »

Donald Trump vs. Lindsey Graham match ends in a KO
First it was Rick Perry that caught Trump’s attention. Then it was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 53%. Now he’s focusing on Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 53%‘s Mini-Me, the lovely and talented Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 44%. In all fairness to Trump, Graham set out to pick the fight. He probably figured he had to stick up for | Read More »
Contrary to what some may say, #AllLivesMatter
Martin O’Malley was booed off the stage at Netroots Nation 2015 because he said “All lives matter.” He was booed off the stage because he didn’t say “Black lives matter.” Saying that all lives matter is actually considered offensive to some because it apparently symbolizes white supremacy or something. However, all lives matter. Every last one. Whether it be the unborn child that Planned Parenthood | Read More »
In Case You Doubted: Yes Planned Parenthood is Evil
We shouldn’t be having this argument. It shouldn’t even be open to discussion. It should be like having a conference on when throwing virgins into the caldera of an active volcano to appease the gods is acceptable. Or when it’s okay to eat your young. But here we are. Planned Parenthood is erecting a media screen in defense of their practice of killing unborn babies and selling the | Read More »
Harper Lee and the Fake Persecution of Mewling Feminists
I haven’t been following the latest round of controversy surrounding Harper Lee’s authorship of To Kill a Mockingbird; this isn’t even an area of hobby study of mine and so I choose not to make a fool of myself by wading into these waters. I will assume that Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird until someone comes forth with what I consider to be convincing evidence to | Read More »
How Planned Parenthood lies about selling organs
When the first undercover video of Planned Parenthood officials operating the human equivalent of a Mexican border auto chop shop surfaced last week, Planned Parenthood was quick to point out that the doctor, Deborah Nucatola, didn’t actually sell parts: There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport | Read More »
