Roger Ailes Confronts the Evil While the Also Rans Cower in Fear
It is times like this that I am very proud of Fox News, where I am a political contributor. The national news media, right now collectively apologizing for Brian Williams, is collectively attacking Roger Ailes and Fox News for showing the ISIS video of the gruesome burning of the Jordanian pilot. It is not a coincidence that the very same networks attacking Roger Ailes and | Read More »
Brian Williams’s magical Iraq combat experience
The spray-tanned, blow-dried face of NBC News is in the spotlight. But one he’d prefer to be out of. It seems that for a decade he’s been flogging a story that a helicopter he was commuting on in Iraq in 2003 was shot down. Williams made the claim while presenting NBC coverage of the tribute to the retired command sergeant major at the Rangers game | Read More »
On Fox News’ decision to show the IS death cult in action.
Let’s just establish a few things about  Fox News’ decision to show Islamic State’s (IS) ritual human sacrifice of downed Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh. The Fox News link is here. It does, in fact, show, a graphic ritual human sacrifice done by evil death cultists. The professional-level quality of the video editing confirms that this was done deliberately, ritually, and as part of a larger plan. | Read More »
Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not
This really isn’t news. I mean they are Democrats. And boycotting American allies is just how they roll. Politico does the stenography job for the White House in a story titled Democrats might skip Benjamin Netanyahu speech Dozens of House Democrats are privately threatening to skip the March 3 address, according to lawmakers and aides, in what’s become the lowest point of a relationship between | Read More »
Rand Paul and Pandering to the Paranoid
Part of the problem with the Internet age is that it’s difficult to have anything approaching a nuanced discussion anymore. This is especially true when virtually everyone, regardless of their intellect, expertise, or judgment, has access to a repository of perfectly reasonable-sounding people who will say anything. If you type “are vaccines safe” into your preferred Internet search engine, you will find that there are | Read More »

VENGEANCE AGAINST ISIS: Jordan Executes Terrorists, Including Female Wannabe Suicide Bomber al-Rishawi
Good. In the predawn hours Wednesday, Jordan executed two al Qaeda in Iraq-associated prisoners by hanging, in response to the brutal slaying of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh yesterday. One of the two jihadis executed was would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, who is the woman that was going to be exchanged for al-Kaseasbeh. After the murder of al-Kaseasbeh, Jordan quickly vowed revenge for his death. | Read More »
Wow. @ed_kilgore & the Washington Monthly pretend that Scott Walker may not have gotten death threats.
Now, I get that the Washington Monthly is a political stroke magazine for progressives. That’s fine. But even the sad fetishists that read it are still actual human beings.

Obama administration punts on enforcing obamacare. Again. #obamacare

Matt Mayer: Could a Third Party Rise in Congress?
Given the long history of America’s two-party system, the historical odds of the U.S. becoming a multi-party political system like most European countries weren’t high. Those odds, however, may be increasing, as the leadership in both parties confronts an increasingly hostile wing. Those wings find far deeper support among the activist voting base of the parties. Safe-seat redistricting has lead to the rise of these | Read More »
John Judis: About That Inevitable, Permanent Majority for the Democrats
A few days ago, John Judis, the co-author of the book on every liberal’s bookshelf, The Emerging Democratic Majority, took to the pages of National Journal to write an article called The Emerging Republican Advantage. At the time, some commentators, including me, hailed the onset of an enduring Democratic majority. And the arguments in defense of this view did seem to be backed by persuasive evidence. | Read More »
White House Unaware of Obamacare
Obamacare is a tax. This really isn’t something that should be in dispute. When the Supreme Court ruled on the Affordable Care Act and called it a tax, President Obama and his followers triumphantly said, “It’s the law.” When you Google “Obamacare is a…” the first response isn’t “success,” but rather “tax.” Now, with tax filing season upon us and a projected 4-6 million households | Read More »
Sick (Pro-life) Beats
I love Kelly Clarkson’s new single, ‘Heartbeat Song.’ Considering she has been my favorite singer since she became the first American Idol back in 2002, I may be a little biased. But, my appreciation for her newest hit goes beyond my personal fandom. Attempting a scientific advancement that has never been done before in music, Clarkson chose to use her daughter’s prenatal heartbeat as the | Read More »
