Watch out for this leading misconception about Cyber Monday
Today is a day that online retailers have claimed as their own, for getting people to get online and buy stuff. It’s somewhat obsolete now, as online shopping is simply taking over for a lot of people, but the idea’s still out there. But there’s one huge misconception about online shopping: that it’s tax free. It’s actually not, yet it’s hugely popular anyway!
Global cooling predicted, again
The June 24, 1974 Time Magazine cover asked if we were heading into another Ice Age. Global cooling theory was popular, but of course became politically unpopular starting in the 1990s, right after the political billy club that was the Ozone Layer was solved by the Montreal Protocol in 1989. Serious climate watchers though have been explaining for years that the Earth’s climate depends on | Read More »
How can a single holiday greeting cause this kind of meltdown?
It started out a simple, harmless Happy Thanksgiving from the Washington Redskins. That’s all. “Happy Thanksgiving” with the team logo was what they Tweeted out on Thanksgiving morning. What came as a result was a remarkable display of anger and hate from the radicals.
Mother Jones leads with an incredibly racist story against Marco Rubio
Mother Jones came out today with a racist article, and led their home page with it today. The publication has come out with an attack on non-violent convicted felons participating in the political process in Florida, because they think it’ll hurt Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94%. Don’t take my word for it though, that this very concept is racist. It was just | Read More »
Clock boy demands millions from school system, threatens lawsuit
So much for science and education: clock boy and Islamist Ahmed Mohamed is demanding $15 million be taken from the school system to be paid to him personally, along with written apologies, threatening he’ll sue if they don’t pay him his demand. Given that the whole clock building thing was a sham, I would look forward to discovery in such a lawsuit.
Donald Trump, Liz Mair, and political attack LLCs
The story going around is that Liz Mair founded Trump Card LLC, a political attack LLC which exists to take down Donald Trump. And while I’m sure the opposition research and media coverage will be interesting to opponents of Trump, I think the longer-lasting effect of this, will be a more-frequent use of attack LLCs in political races.
Make the President an offer he can’t refuse on refugees
As much as we rightly fear Islamic terror coming into our country, at the same time I think most of us also understand the legitimate fears any woman and mother has living in the Islamic world. So when it comes to refugees, let’s take the President at his word, and do a good deed at the same time. Let’s set a quota demanding that refugees | Read More »
The Era of the Senator
The esteemed Dan McLaughlin among others has promoted the idea that Governors are better choices for President than legislators are. And for years, the parties and the electorate seemed to agree. But with cable news and the Internet creating a perpetual conversation about national political issues, we’re now seeing the rise of the Senator as Presidential candidate. I’m not saying Governors are finished, but the | Read More »
Take it from Obama: There’s no more need for Refugees
According to the UN, “Migrants, especially economic migrants, choose to move in order to improve the future prospects of themselves and their families. Refugees have to move if they are to save their lives or preserve their freedom.” So the good news is, according to President Barack Obama, the war in Iraq and Syria is contained. There should be no more refugees, as the war | Read More »
Jeremy Corbyn’s own Labour party revolts on Terrorism
While most of the world was grateful that the security forces in Paris were able to stop as many of the terrorists as they could, and would hope for the same in their own countries, UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn was troubled. He came out yesterday in opposition to a “shoot to kill” policy for terrorists staging an attack in the UK. It turns | Read More »
Marco Rubio is right. Rand Paul seeks to weaken a nation.
We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons. So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is | Read More »
We’re going to hear a lot about ‘Islamophobia’ in the coming weeks, as the pacifists all run in to counsel inaction in the face of terror. But today on Twitter I learned what the real definition of Islamophobia is, courtesy of Donna Driscoll.
Guess which rhetorical tricks Donald Trump used against Ben Carson this week
Donald Trump is worried about Ben Carson. For a while there he was sure he had the GOP nomination wrapped up, as the yes-men surrounding him kept saying “Yes, Mr. Trump, you won the latest poll.” But even the brownest of noses can’t say that with a straight face anymore, so Trump has abandoned his old ‘counterpunch’ strategy and has begun using every dirty rhetorical | Read More »
Burn Baby Burn: #ConcernedStudent1950 can end Academia as we know it
“Academic freedom” used to be one of the major issues that the radical left paid close attention to. The modern institution of tenure, and the presumption that academic professors would keep their jobs in good behavior, dates back to the intense competition for professors after World War II. So while political pressures were considered, tenure was primarily used as a bargaining chip. During the Cold | Read More »
This anti-immigration group is recycling old anti-Catholic rhetoric
Back in the 1850s, America dealt with the fad of the the Know Nothing movement and its political wing, the American party. The group claimed to represent the interests of native Americans against the dangers of unrestrained immigration. However that one issue couldn’t really get support, so it instead went anti-Catholic, and sought to appeal to large numbers of Protestant immigrants who just wanted to | Read More »
