Swing Your Pardners, Dosey Doe
Let’s start with how Congress can deliberately mangle the language by coming up with cute acronyms for the bills they write. Case in point: the DISCLOSE Act, or Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light On Spending In Elections Act. Technically, wouldn’t it be the DISBYCLOSIE Act? But, I digress. This goofy piece of legislation was thankfully filibustered in the Senate by Republicans. The story of | Read More »
Yes, The Dangerous Left Wants The U.S. To Fight Wars In The Courts
Ever since 9/11, but especially since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, American leftists have been filing lawsuit after lawsuit challenging the war against terrorists, the war against Saddam Hussein, you name it. From the terrorist surveillance program, to extraordinary rendition, to the holding of terrorists in Gitmo, to trying terrorists in military tribunals, to suing the CIA on behalf of terrorists who claimed | Read More »
BREAKING: 9/11 Terrorists To Gitmo For Trials In Military Commissions: UPDATE
Allahpundit Ed Morrissey: As Andy Levy said on Twitter a little while ago, the most surprising part of the Washington Post scoop isn’t the decision to put Khalid Sheikh Mohammed into the military commission system. It’s that the White House didn’t wait until Friday night to leak it to the press… The opening of the WaPo piece Allah links to contains the heart the story | Read More »
Obama – Tough… On What?
We used to have a saying around the playground as wise-guy adolescents. “He’s tough ok, around the mouth”. This was generally used to describe a guy who was all talk, who would back off and cower to any half-baked bully who happened to come along. Striking simile to the Benighted One and his Clown College where it comes to the very first tenant of a | Read More »
The ACLU Is Responsible for the Christmas Day Terrorist Attack
In today’s news it was reported that two of the master minds behind the failed Christmas terrorist attack had been released from Gitmo. The terrorists were released to our good friends the Saudis, where they were set free. Somehow they made their way to Yemen and set up shop. They trained Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the failed plane bomber. The ACLU, CAIR, the SCOTUS, the International | Read More »
Eric Holder – The Joker Redux – Judicial Gamesmanship At Country’s Expense.
Fooled ya again…seems to be the mantra of the Eric Holder Justice Department. Holder tried more ACLU bait and switch on the Senate Judiciary Committee today in his testimony, telling the Senators that “we need not cower in the face of the enemy”. If our experience with the Obama administration and his Attorney General is any example, then we had better worry plenty. Holder held | Read More »
7th Circuit Nominee & Nidal Hasan – PC Run Amok
This week, the Senate votes on President Obama’s nomination of District Court Judge David Hamilton to the Seventh Circuit. Because of Hamilton’s fundraising activities for ACORN, his leadership positions with the Indiana branch of the ACLU, his statements supporting judicial activism, and most importantly, his rulings putting liberal ideology above the rule of law, he is the first and only Obama circuit nominee to draw | Read More »

Just Who Is Obama Working For?
It can’t be the American people…WE didn’t ask that the most virulently dangerous terrorists on earth be brought to American soil, so that they could be defended at the bar of our courts by Marxist ACLU attorneys and given rights that should be reserved only for citizens of this country. Eric Holder and associates have a lot to answer for. Meanwhile, the Osama–whoops slip of | Read More »
The Domestic Face Of “Overseas Contingency Operations”
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator Take A Good Look At This Man Remember back in March when the name change order came down from the top? No more Global War On Terror. It was now to be known as Overseas Contingency Operations. I suppose that GWOT had negative connotations to the Obama administration. The President had the idea of putting lipstick on the | Read More »

Gitmo Defense Lawyers, ACLU, May Have Outed Covert CIA Agents; Crickets Chirping From The Left
This is stunning: The Justice Department recently questioned military defense attorneys at Guantanamo Bay about whether photographs of CIA personnel, including covert officers, were unlawfully provided to detainees charged with organizing the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to sources familiar with the investigation. How much screaming from the left did we hear about the “treason” committed by members of the Bush administration after covert agent | Read More »
You be the judge
So just north of Pensacola FL. the principal of Pace HS (public), Frank Lay (pictured) asked the athletic director, Robert Freeman to say a brief blessing an appreciation luncheon for those who helped move toward a new field house. This sort of prayer/blessing is offered every day in our congress. Now, because the principal shortsightedly did something that would have been routine 5-10 yrs ago, | Read More »
Welcome to the Jungle, Rhode Island Has Fun and Games
Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you’re gonna bleed
But it’s the price you pay
And you’re a very sexy girl
That’s very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights
But you won’t get them for free
Guns-N-Roses, “Welcome to the Jungle”, 1988
It seems The Great State of Rhode Island has problems even more pressing than unemployment and Lincoln Chaffee. For years, they delved into an experiment in “Liberaltarianism” involving the steadily progressive decriminalization of prostitution. It takes the Act Utilitarian postulate of “If it feels good, do it” to a whole new and frightening level. Things are being done to weak and defenseless women that should never occur in a sane and civilized community.
National Review describes the legal conditions prevalent in Rhode Island with respect to prostitution.
Tiny Rhode Island prides itself on its history and charm. But since it decriminalized prostitution in 1980, it has become a haven for something decidedly uncharming: the trafficking of girls and young women into the commercial sex industry.

ACLU: Election fraud is a civil right.
…that someone surveying the situation might be forgiven in thinking that it’s implicitly permitted: but no, we don’t actually want election fraud to happen. When it does – like it did in Pennsylvania – and we can catch them at it, we put the people who did it on trial. And then, apparently, we have the ACLU wander in and pick the wrong side to | Read More »
Veterans Fight to Keep 75-yr. old Mojave Desert Memorial Cross
After WWI many U.S. soldiers moved to the Californian desert to find physical and emotional healing. In 1934, they erected a memorial to honor their fallen comrades, a single white cross, – a symbol used around the world to memorialize those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The site for the memorial was chosen because at a certain time of day, the sun | Read More »
