The Media’s Main Bias is Anti-American
Kudos to the Islamic terrorists yesterday who shot up the Charlie Hebdo offices yesterday for doing so in such a way that the media could not pretend that they were not Muslim or that their belief in radical Islam was not the primary motivating factor for their actions. Having been robbed of their normal playbook of refusing to use Islamic names or to report that terrorists | Read More »

Memo to the Jenkins Hill 25: Just Vote Against the Rules
In retaliation for having the temerity to question Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%‘s leadership, Boehner has gone “full despot” against the 25 Republicans who voted against him as speaker. In particular, Florida Republicans Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) 78% and Rep. Richard Nugent (R-FL) 78% will lose their spots on the powerful House Rules Committee. And, according | Read More »
200 Years Ago Today: The Battle of New Orleans
On January 8, 1815, the final engagement in the Battle of New Orleans took place. This battle was a huge victory for the United States, even if the War of 1812 was technically over while it was being fought. This battle, more than any other in U.S. History, was responsible for not only developing a national identity, but in establishing the United States as a | Read More »
Tech at Night: Yeah, any country can attack us online. Even North Korea.
People don’t really believe how much damage a determined state-backed attacker can do to us online. And yes, the attack on Sony Pictures was an attack on us. North Korea’s attack on that studio, and let’s be clear, it was North Korea, not a domestic malcontent, was their way of cheaply doing millions of dollars of damage to our economy. It used to take bombs | Read More »
Destroying a Man Because He Offends You
I really, really hope you will listen to at least the first five minutes of this because you will be made to care, whether you realize it or not. The sidelines shrink daily.
Ron Paul on Paris terror attack: B****es had it coming
I try to ignore Ron Paul and his spawn as much as humanly possible but sometimes the doddering old fraud just goes too far. As a recap, Muslim terrorists, or at least everyone in the world thinks they are Muslim terrorists except the Obama administration, stormed the offices of a Parisian magazine that happens to poke fun at Islam and its Mohammed. People were killed. | Read More »
The Terrorists Win
A publisher published something that offended. It mocked, it offended, and it showed the fallacy of a religion. It angered. So the terrorists decided they needed to publicly destroy and ruin the publisher in a way that would not only make that destruction a public spectacle, but do it so spectacularly that others would think twice before publishing or saying anything similar. The terrorist wants | Read More »
New Congress Wastes No Time Introducing Pro-life Legislation
In terms of legislation, this just may be the most pro-life Congress Washington has ever seen. Returning pro-life senators like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 64% (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) have spearheaded former pro-life legislative efforts, as well as representatives like Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ). What’s more, an historic 21 pro-life women are now serving in Congress – and they’ve already | Read More »
Administration ignored warnings about ISIS
We have repeatedly chronicled how the policies of the the Obama administration are directly responsible for the rise of ISIS and because of that bears partial responsibility for the slaughter that has raged in Syria and Iraq over the past two years. In short, the misbegotten embrace of “Arab Spring” destabilized Syria while creating an al Qaeda safe haven in the power vacuum we created | Read More »
Putin’s Fascism Vs Barack Obama’s
Neither of these men cared much for “The Diamond Merchants.” One of the things that really chaps my butt about the Alternative Right is their tendency to talk about how wonderful it would be if we could have a good, authoritarian in charge over here like Vladimir Putin. If Putin ever decided to take up an acting career slightly off of | Read More »

[Breaking] Probable Islamist attack in Paris: 11 dead at satirical magazine.
Via @PhilWillSays comes this report of Islamist* terror in Paris: “Armed men stormed the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning, killing 11 people and injuring more, French President François Hollande said. The men opened fire inside the magazine’s offices using automatic AK-47 rifles before fleeing, a police officer said.” The ‘Islamist’ bit is not yet confirmed; but, given that this isn’t | Read More »
Time for a 2020 Vision, Not Platitudes
Whoever the next President is, he will seek a second term in the year 2020. For the Republicans, they should take advantage of 2020 and tell us with foresight, not with hindsight, what their vision for America is. And I want to extend an invitation to all of them from Jeb Bush, who has announced, to the rest who will announce, to share their vision | Read More »
