NYT calls for prosecution of Dick Cheney
I’ll admit that I’m one of those Americans that Dick Cheney frightens. I also agree with comedian Christian Finnigan that he looks like the Penguin from the old Adam West Batman series (which is a delightful comparison and series overall). Still, while he may scare me, I fail to see what exactly he’s done that the New York Times editorial board would call for his | Read More »
A Word to the Wise
The most insidious result that central-planning and the overabundance of government control that it requires is not the maladjustments that it inevitably creates in the economy. It is not the crony capitalism and bureaucratic nepotism that it always fosters. It is not the smothering blanket of nanny-state regulations that strangle creativity. It is not even the tendency to one-party rule even when camouflaged behind a | Read More »

Democrats switching to Republican Party over immigration reform
Even though they haven’t officially changed their party affiliation, some big name Democrats are using the immigration reform issue to defect to the Republican party. No longer concerned about putting another Democrat in the White House when Obama leaves, some of the party’s big guns have already gone on record in support of the Republicans in November, 2016. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “I believe that | Read More »

The New York Times seems to have woken up from its 4-year slumber and realized that the Barack Obama is essentially pushing the same defense policies as Bush.

A Way Around the Mainstream Media
How smart is it to keep raising hundreds of millions of dollars to support Republican candidates, and then turn around and hand it over to the Liberal Mainstream Media in order to try to get them elected? Frankly I think it’s just plain stupid! If you are a conservative, that money will only be used against you in the General Election, and it will only | Read More »
Aggressively Stupid: WaPo Attacks on Marco Rubio
The Washington Post published a ridiculous hit piece on Marco Rubio yesterday, claiming that “documents show” that Rubio had “embellished the facts” about his family’s history, specifically how they came to America from Cuba.
You can pinch your nose and read the article here.
Because Rubio’s family emigrated to America from Cuba in 1956, and Fidel Castro did not officially take power until 1959, writer Manuel Roig-Franzia claims that Rubio should not be able to say he is part of the Cuban exile community, and accuses Rubio of exaggerating his family’s history for political gain.
I have decided I will not call this article journalistic malpractice, because that would imply that what Roig-Franzia published yesterday was journalism, instead of an egregious attempt at character assassination. Roig-Franzia’s belligerent distortions of history makes him a prime candidate to create the next campaign video for Alan Grayson (of “Taliban Dan” fame).
The Washington Post and Manuel Roig-Franzia (as well as whichever blind and ignorant toad of an editor approved that article) owe Rubio a huge apology.
