Maybe Hillary Clinton Really Did Wipe that Server with a Cloth
It looks like Hillary Clinton’s efforts to unilaterally determine which emails from her private server she would turn over are going… well, about as well as pretty much every other effort managed by Hillary Clinton has gone. Which is to say, about as well as an ongoing dumpster fire: The FBI has recovered personal and work-related e-mails from the private computer server used by Hillary | Read More »

Finally. A claim so stupid that even @Voxdotcom won’t buy it
We’ve seen it all at Vox.com. The bridge from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. The missing everglades. The American Revolution as a really bad idea. The Hong Kong democracy protesters using “hands up, don’t shoot.” The routine and virulent anti-Semitism. But yesterday, for a few blessed hours, Vox.com redeemed itself. It all started with an attempt by TalkingPointsMemo to start a leftist gang-bang | Read More »
Muslim and homosexual bakers decline to make cakes. No one cares.
One of the things that Muslim and homosexual rights activists have in common is that while they use the cry of “equal rights” what they are really campaigning for is a position of privilege where they have rights that are available to no one else. In the aftermath of Ben Carson’s comments on his view (and mine) that Islam is incompatible with the presidency, Jonathan | Read More »
Obama administration condones child-rape
I had discussion with a friend of mine over the weekend. We go back a long ways, having served together a company commanders in the same battalion. Naturally, politics came up and we both agreed that now we easily believe allegations against the Obama administration that we would have laughed at and dismissed out of hand as crazy talk back in 2009. This is one | Read More »
Here’s Why I Donated to the Club For Growth
If you want to find the most pro-life members of Congress, you need to find who has the highest score from the Club For Growth, not National Right to Life Committee. Why? Because back in the day, National Right to Life decided to whore itself to congressional Republicans while Club For Growth has stood firm for liberty. Consequently, National Right to Life was in favor | Read More »
BuzzFeed snivels about being denied press credentials for Papal visit
BuzzFeed, in addition to being an odious boil on the ass of journalist, is one of the most hostile to religion, and dishonestly so, sites that purport to be news sites. So when they applied for credentials they fully expected the Washington Archdiocese to go along. Back in January, reporter Ellie Hall first inquired about credentials for the pope’s visit, which was the first in | Read More »
Barack Obama Lies to the Pope’s Face
I’m writing a book on this right now and it is very clear that Barack Obama flat out lied in the Pope’s face today. Listen to a part of what Barack Obama said to Pope Francis about religious liberty. In fact, the President and his administration have been deeply, deeply hostile to Christians in the United States. Remember, just a few years ago, the Obama | Read More »
Ann Coulter goes full Know Nothing
Most Americans have a warm view of immigration. It makes us feel good when people will put down their lives to come to our country, choosing to throw their lots in with ours. However there’s long been a strain of anti-immigration sentiment in this country. It flares up now and then, such as when the Know Nothing movement put up the American Party before the | Read More »
Pope Francis Wants to Give Away his Cake and Eat It, Too
As a non-Catholic, I have grave hesitation wandering in to public disputes about Catholic doctrine, and about the person of the Pope. My knowledge of Catholicism is pretty imperfect and tends to be riddled with misunderstandings, so rather than go full Vox on the subject, I tend to leave arguments about Catholics to the Catholics. However, while I don’t know much about Catholicism, I do | Read More »
The Democrats’ Jackolope
With the left’s favorite Pope in town, the media has been giddy pointing out that Francis puts Republicans in awkward positions on global warming, the environment, capitalism, etc. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church has started leasing lands it owns in Texas for oil drilling. What the media is ignoring, of course, is that Francis and the GOP agree on much when it comes to life and | Read More »
New poll: Jeb Bush falls to third place in Florida
A new poll shows both Donald Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% leading Jeb Bush in Florida. On the Republican side, Trump had 31.5 percent of the Republican primary vote. Rubio was second with 19.2 percent and Bush was third with 11.3 percent. Carson, the retired neurosurgeon who lives in West Palm Beach, was in fourth place with 10.3 percent. Carly | Read More »
Typical DC: Patent Lawsuit ‘Reform’ Will Lead to Many, MANY More Lawsuits
Under consideration in Washington, D.C. is legislation that will fundamentally transform our patent system. It will render this Constitutionally protected intellectual property product – dramatically less protected. The bills to which I refer are the Innovation Act (House) and the Patent Act (Senate). There are many, many reasons to oppose them. The reason given for why this legislation is allegedly necessary is to undo the | Read More »
Happy Birthday to Who? Copyright lost to the famous song lyrics.
The lyrics to the commonly-sung Happy Birthday song have long been believed to be under copyright. But some believe otherwise, and due to a variety of technical reasons, the US District Court for the Central District of California struck a blow against that song’s purported ownership. It may be entering the public domain!
If Pope Francis Is The Best Christianity Can Do, Perhaps Christianity Requires Another Reformation
If The Catholic Church chooses to reduce itself to being just another boring Left-wing interest group that shills for the collective immiseration of mind, body and spirit that Marxism typically entails, then it needs and deserves condign replacement as a legitimate moral authority. This is quite the radical proclamation, but only when viewed through the lens of credulous, rather than skeptical faith. This week President | Read More »
