    Libya Implodes While the Press Fiddles

    Libya Implodes While the Press Fiddles

    It seems like almost forever in one sense since the media were treating American citizens to literally daily updates with the number of people killed in terrorist attacks in Iraq. Every IED explosion, every infrastructure failure, every rise in terrorist activity was the subject of a major feature splash. During the course of the 2008 election, the Republican candidates were repeatedly beaten about the head | Read More »

    CNN: The Question of Whether Hamas is Using Human Shields is “Complicated.”

    CNN: The Question of Whether Hamas is Using Human Shields is "Complicated."

    Via CNN.com today comes this truly astounding article that purports to leave the question of whether Hamas is using human shields in Gaza up in the air. The opening four paragraphs here set the stage for the accusation that Israel is using the “human shield” argument as a PR ploy of questionable factual validity: Tuesday’s discovery of rockets hidden in a vacant U.N. facility is | Read More »

    Salon Attempts to Paint Avowed Communist Lee Harvey Oswald as a “Right-Winger”

    Salon Attempts to Paint Avowed Communist Lee Harvey Oswald as a "Right-Winger"

    Via Salon today comes one of the most truly bizarre pieces of revisionist history I have ever seen, even within the context of articles appearing at Salon. The basic outline of the piece is as follows: Dallas in 1963 was full of crazy right-wingers; These people had guns; John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas in 1963; Barack Obama likewise has many right-wingers who oppose | Read More »

    What is Obama Hiding at His Wealthy Donor Fundraisers?

    What is Obama Hiding at His Wealthy Donor Fundraisers?

    A common complaint about George W. Bush’s second term is that he was “insulated” and cut off from the outside world, and increasingly so from what he perceived to be a hostile press. This alleged isolation caused many liberal commentators to begin to derisively refer to President Bush as a “Bubble Boy.”  It has taken considerably longer for the press to openly criticize Obama for | Read More »

    E.J. Dionne’s Unseemly Whinging About the Judiciary Continues Apace

    E.J. Dionne's Unseemly Whinging About the Judiciary Continues Apace

    In 1973, nine unelected judges (all men), overturned almost two hundred years of unbroken precedent and historical practice and declared that there existed in the United States Constitution a heretofore undiscovered constitutional right to an abortion. They did this despite the fact that nothing in the text of the Constitution even hinted at the existence of such a right, and that for hundreds of years | Read More »

    Reminder: The Chamber of Commerce is an Ideological and Political Enemy to Conservatives

    Reminder: The Chamber of Commerce is an Ideological and Political Enemy to Conservatives

    The Chamber of Commerce has long been thought to be an ally of the GOP, by and large. They have made it clear during the course of the current fight for the soul of the GOP, however, that they are mostly an ally of crony capitalism and corporate welfare and those who enable it, and committed opponents of grassroots conservatives. The Chamber of Commerce pumped | Read More »

    The Left’s Pre-Emptive SCOTUS Bashing Over Halbig

    The Left's Pre-Emptive SCOTUS Bashing Over Halbig

    Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo knows almost nothing about the law, as any lawyer who has read his material over the years can attest. He’s not an attorney, has never been one, doesn’t have a law degree, and so far as I know has never even taken a law class. Nor is he an expert or seasoned SCOTUS-watcher of any sort. He has literally no basis | Read More »

    LiveBlog – #WeWillNotConform

    Thanks to The Blaze and Freedomworks, I was privileged to be invited to liveblog Glenn Beck’s live Common Core event tonight in Dallas/Ft. Worth. Below the fold I’ll be providing regular updates on the event for those who were not able to attend in theaters tonight to hear the information on how to defeat this Federal intrusion into education. Enjoy! 7:56pm (ET) - Glenn is on | Read More »

    The Chaotic Belief Systems of Millenials

    The Chaotic Belief Systems of Millenials

    Winston Churchill once famously quipped, “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain.” This is an important mantra to keep in mind when analyzing the fight for the political mind of the much-maligned millenial generation in light of Reason’s most recent survey on Millenials’ attitudes about government. Although Millenials still tend | Read More »

    The Politicization of Science in the Media

    The Politicization of Science in the Media

    Via RealClearScience today comes a stark reminder that there is literally no such thing about which the media is a truly objective reporter these days. It reminds me yet again of this quote from the late great Michael Crichton about the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect: Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. | Read More »

    Fracking Rift Threatens to Sink Udall, Hickenlooper

    Fracking Rift Threatens to Sink Udall, Hickenlooper

    Fracking has been good for the State of Colorado and its economy, and therefore a large majority of Coloradans support fracking. However, the Democrat base, particularly in Colorado, is not so much with the whole science thing, and therefore they are vehemently opposed to fracking. Uber environmentalist wacko Jared Polis (D-CO), has decided to score an own goal on two vulnerable Democrats who are up | Read More »

    Josh Marshall and TalkingPointsMemo: Russian Separatists Are Just Like Tea Partiers

    Josh Marshall and TalkingPointsMemo: Russian Separatists Are Just Like Tea Partiers

    The fog of war still obscures many of the events surrounding MH17 and it’s still too early to draw any hard conclusions about what occurred, but in the age of instant information, everyone is dissecting the smallest bit of information, however well or poorly verified it might be. Today the lazy and not-very-bright Josh Marshall waded into these waters, with predictable results: Following up on | Read More »

    The Media’s Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    The Media's Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    It is difficult to find a subject on which the Western media is more monolithic in its view than the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Despite the uncontroverted fact that the latest round of fighting – like virtually all the other rounds of fighting – was unquestionably started by the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians have rejected a cease fire, the media are | Read More »

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor is in the fight of his political life against Tom Cotton in what has become one of the reddest states in the country, and also one of the most religious states in the country. It is no coincidence then that Pryor has been seen holding a Bible and saying the word “Jesus” more often than a revival preacher in a tent. Pryor’s first | Read More »

    Louisiana Common Core Fight Coming to a Head Today

    For those who have not been following the issue, Louisiana is the current ground zero in the fight over the implementation of Common Core standards. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued an executive order suspending implementation of Common Core and suspended a contract that State Superintendent John White had entered into for the purchase of Common Core related materials and supplies. The Louisiana Board of | Read More »
