Al Gore Lies; Ted Lewis Already Explained Why Mother Nature Could One Day Die

What type of people cause it? What can be done? All of these questions have apocryphal answers. Ted Lewis, in one of the best noir fiction novels ever; gives us intelligent speculations. The novel Jack’s | Read More »

4Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, 5That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:Daniel 3:3-4 If you had any doubts over whether the State of California respected the | Read More »
How Ebola Turned Senator Kay Hagan Into A Fire-Breathing !RACIST!
We’ve been told it’s !RACIST! to demand a travel ban on lights from countries that are suffering from the current Ebola epidemic in Western Africa. Streiff told us all about how Nate Silver Voxsplained* how ineffective a travel ban would be. The Progressives had given reality its marching orders and Kay Hagan sallied forth with robotic predictability to carry them out. The guidance from the | Read More »
Joe Biden As Reverend DIMmesdale
Biden has sponsored more damaging drug war legislation than any Democrat in Congress. Hate the way federal prosecutors use RICO laws to take aim at drug offenders? Thank Biden. How about the abomination that is federal asset forfeiture laws? Thank Biden. Think federal prosecutors have too much power in drug cases? Thank Biden. Think the title of a “Drug Czar” is sanctimonious and silly? Thank | Read More »

George Orwell, Heather MacDonald and “Yes Means Yes”
History doesn’t repeat per se, but it seems to rhyme. In 1979, The Dead Kennedys sang “California Uber Alles” in honor of the statism embodied by then Governor Jerry Brown. Whether his aura smiles, frowns or requires a prune juice enema, Governor Brown remains Governor Brown. Like Big Brother, he is watching you. It could also be argued that like Big Brother, he has formed | Read More »

Which One Is Worse: Racism or Ebola?
I previously opined that barring a series of catastrophic bureaucratic snafus, the United States had very low risk of a major Ebola epidemic. Being the eternal optimist that I am; I’m only putting on enough gear to reach MOPP-Level 2 as I head for the Cube Farm.* I’m still fairly certain that we will endure fewer than 1,000 Ebola fatalities this Winter. I’m just less | Read More »
Liberal Vs. Progressive: Reality Vs. Delusion On ISIS.
I included the Youtube scene from the Movie Cloverfield for reasons other than the fact that I truly enjoy popping that DVD into my machine during a long flight. It also gives us a nice analogy to how America’s current Democratic Party reelection campaign of ineffective and symbolic airstrikes against ISIS has actually worked so far in suppressing the latest incarnation of Middle Eastern menace. | Read More »
Bill Maher Has a Point about Islam, Liberalism and Morality
“We’re liberals … we’re trying to stand up for the principles of liberalism! And so, y’know, I think we’re just saying we need to identify illiberalism wherever we find it in the world, and not forgive it because it comes from [a group that] people perceive as a minority.” – Bill Maher If I live long enough, then I’ll probably see crap stick to the | Read More »
Barack Obama, Gwyneth Paltrow and the Pathetic and Grotesque 1%.
“It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.” – Gwyneth Paltrow When Fred Reed called Post-modern America’s entertainment industry “Hollyorc,” he knocked the ball out of the yard.

Human Rights, Slavery and Idiot Democrat Martin O’Malley
Image Source: CNN.com When the produce gleaned from someone else’s labor and resources gets declared a human right, an unfunny thing then happens – Slavery! After the effluvium-flood of fail that was ObamaCare Anno I; this lesson should have been written on the prominent, sloping foreheads of the brilliant people who make public policy in DC. But floating atop that flotsam and jetsam the way | Read More »
The Candidate I Hope the Dems Run in 2016: Luis V. Gutierrez
It’s amazing the distance Leftward of rational thought that committed Progressives are willing to travel to find and recruit their own personal Anti-Hillary. They seem to like the DNC about as much as I and several of our other Front Page Contributors at Redstate like the RNC. Today the meme amongst the Progressive Unwashed seems to be that Hillary has a Hispanic problem. Perhaps this | Read More »
