Corbyn is the UK left’s tantrum against Bush and Blair
Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday was the decisive winner of the UK Labour Party leader’s election, an event many of us believe to be great news for the UK Conservative Party. It’s worth taking a moment to look at why this happened, and why this is terrible news for Labour’s electoral chances.
Let us stop pretending that the Iraq War was the Worst Thing Ever.
Stop pretending that the Iraq War was the worst disaster to ever befall America. Or even that it was particularly a disaster at all. At least, under Bush.

The Predicate Act
Fourteen years ago this morning, hell flew out of the clear blue skies careening into tall buildings in New York City, careening into the Pentagon, and careening into a field in Pennsylvania. We have been at war ever since. The monstrous acts this day fourteen years ago led to the toppling of a regime in Afghanistan and Iraq. Today, the left says if only George | Read More »
Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush and Word Associations
So Quinnipiac recently put forth another objective, honest and unbiased opinion poll designed to boost the sagging fortunes of the so-called Democratic Party. It has the usual blather about how either Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden will soon be our next Slytherin Overlord. But then they did ask a question my Inner Stat-Nerd could have some fun with. They gathered three groups of respondents and | Read More »
Obama’s Illegal Immigration Actions Cause New Surge of Illegals
A new report issued by the Center for Immigration Studies (“CIS”) estimates that the “illegal population could be 12.4 million in 2015.” This new report also “suggests” there has been a new surge in illegal immigration. The CIS report credits the new influx, in part, to the lax enforcement efforts resulting from President Obama’s illegal so-called “executive actions on immigration”: Given the significant cutbacks in | Read More »

George W Bush patiently explains the facts of life and war to his successor.

The @NYTimes Thinks Recorded History Began in 2008
I have to say that, despite of everything the media has done to date, I nevertheless am frequently surprised by how readily they aim to convince us that American history, particularly presidential history, began in 2008 with the election of Barack Obama. Bolding and numeration is mine for the breakdown of this piece. It is a peculiar, but unmistakable, phenomenon: As Barack Obama’s presidency heads | Read More »
Matt Lewis Misses Some Important History
It is like history began in 2004 in Matt Lewis’s analysis of the Jeb v. George situation. I see Matt’s article being passed around by people stroking their beards over it, nodding knowingly, but I think it fundamentally misses something that throws the whole out of whack, while parts of it taken alone hold up. There were numerous and sustained conversations in the late nineties | Read More »
The #ParisMarch Snub In Perspective
(via Rabble Writer) Ouch. A sarcastic but painful video that reminds you of exactly what leadership does, and does not, look like, the Digitas Daily short above is the kind of funnysad that is all too easy to find in Obama’s world. On Sunday, marchers rallied in Paris by the hundreds of thousands. This march was not a photo-op, as desperate Obama hagiographer Chris Hayes | Read More »
George W Bush declines to back-stab the CIA over waterboarding.
I wonder what tomorrow’s (scheduled) Senate report on waterboarding during the Bush era is actually going to say. I suspect – suspect – that it’s going to end up seriously upsetting the antiwar Left, in large part because the former administration isn’t hanging the CIA out to dry: The report is said to assert that the C.I.A. misled Mr. Bush and his White House about | Read More »
Blame WHO’s Political Activism for its Ebola Failure
Lost among the post-election hullabaloo was a great editorial in the Wall Street Journal calling out Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, for the organization’s failure to contain the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This in and of itself is nothing new. One of the casualties of the Ebola crisis has been the WHO’s credibility. The editors at the Wall Street Journal were irritated that in | Read More »

Still More Gagging On The Donkey
Image credit: shutterstock.com During the 2004 election, President George W. Bush increased his share of the black vote. He did so in part by questioning black voters’ support for Democrats at Democrat strongholds such as the Urban League’s annual convention, where he quoted Charlie Gaines: Blacks are gagging on the donkey but not yet ready to swallow the elephant. A new video | Read More »

How Do You Like Me Now?
While scanning the Internet, I came across an interesting article on AlterNet- a Leftist outlet- entitled “50 Reasons You Despised George W. Bush’s Presidency.” (Just go to alternet and type in that headline) It is an interesting bit of recent history made all the more interesting by the administration of “president” Barack Obama. Without being an apologist for the Bush Administration: 1. Bush stole | Read More »
