    The Empire Strikes Back: Jeff Sessions out as Budget Committee Chair

    Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions is out as chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is giving up his bid to become the next Budget Committee chairman — deferring to Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and eliminating the only competitive chairmanship battle in the incoming GOP Senate majority. Sessions has been the panel’s top Republican for the past four years but Enzi technically retains seniority over the | Read More »

    Obama’s Cuba deal frees a murderer

    Obama's Cuba deal frees a murderer

    One of the features of Obama’s unilateral decision to skirt federal law and expand diplomatic and commercial ties with Cuba was that, along with a clutch of spies, he released a convicted murderer. On February 24, 1996, three unarmed private aircraft piloted by men belong to the anti-Castro humanitarian group, Brothers to the Rescue, were making a routine flight outside Cuban territorial waters and airspace | Read More »

    The Russians worked hard for this disaster, let them enjoy it

    Russia is having as much fun as it can stand and it couldn’t happen to a nicer fascist kleptocracy. As it stands today the ruble is in a virtual freefall. And unlike the limited sanctions imposed by the West after Russia’s Ron-Paul sanctioned stripping of Crimea from Ukraine and its slow motion invasion of that nation, this is hitting the average Russian in a significant | Read More »

    Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People and the triumph of feminism

    Let’s try a thought experiment. Suppose a conservative woman news anchor… let’s say Megyn Kelly… had proclaimed a somewhat attractive and accomplished woman as one of the most fascinating people of the year because she had married an actor with the correct politics and a room temperature IQ. What do we think the reaction would have been? My guess is thermonuclear. You would have had | Read More »

    The Cruz-Lee point of order and why the GOP establishment thinks you are an idiot

    In the wake of the passage of CRomnibus –on the strength of GOP votes – the GOP leadership in Congress and the GOP establishment has been working overtime to rough up Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Utah Senator Mike Lee. A lot of the GOP is miffed that they have to serve alongside men of principle, this produces a Devil-Holy Water effect. They also realize based on | Read More »

    GOP joins Democrats in defending Obama’s amnesty executive order

    A clear majority of the GOP caucus made itself clear. Not only do they not object to Obama’s use of executive orders to implement amnesty, they are furious at being exposed for the rank hypocrites that they are. This is the story. A gutless House agreed to fund Obama’s amnesty program. They didn’t have to, they chose to. All the bull**** about the US Citizenship | Read More »

    White potatoes finally legal for WIC purchase

    In the George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, more familiar to most as the Broadway play and Hollywood movie “My Fair Lady,” the protagonist, Henry Higgins takes in an underclass Cockney girl and attempts to change her into a proper British lady. The CRomnibus bill provided interesting insight into how government entitlement programs attempt to play the role of Henry Higgins. They are less concerned with providing | Read More »

    CRomnibus passes because of GOP support

    Jesus wept. The debate exposed divisions within the Democratic and Republican caucuses on both sides of the Capitol and sets the stage for what could be a year of internecine squabbling in 2015. Twenty-one Senate Democrats voted against the bill while 24 Republicans voted for it, including every member of the Senate GOP leadership. The next time anyone tells you the GOP Senate leadership opposes | Read More »

    Dead donor rule for organ transplants is being challenged

    Back in 1995, Pope Saint John Paul II took note of a tragic flaw and tendency in the modern culture of developed nations in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (Latin: “The Gospel of Life”): Here we are faced with one of the more alarming symptoms of the “culture of death”, which is advancing above all in prosperous societies, marked by an attitude of excessive preoccupation with efficiency | Read More »

    Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS

    Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US economy and ruining every alliance the nation had | Read More »

    The bogus statistics behind the “rape epidemic”

    Occasionally good things actually come out of bad things. Two bad things happened recently. Rolling Stone accused several men at a University of Virginia fraternity of a violent and brutal gang rape a part of a pledge initiation rite. That accusation seems, now, to have been concocted out of whole cloth by an amoral and avaricious writer preying on a troubled young woman. The second | Read More »

    GOP needs to keep ‘nuclear option’

    GOP needs to keep 'nuclear option'

    When the Communist Sandinistas were turned out of power by the Nicaraguan voters on February 25, 1990, their leader, the terrorist and mass murderer Daniel Ortega, vowed that the Sandinistas would accept the defeat in public but would continue to “rule from below” regardless of what the new government desired. This is exactly what we see developing in the United States Senate where the outgoing | Read More »

    Lena Dunham’s narcissism has hurt all rape victims

    Yesterday we covered the ongoing soap opera of the immensely unattractive and monumentally untalented Lena Dunham’s bogus rape accusation. Long story short: she accused a college classmate of raping her, she clearly identified the alleged rapist which has caused him a lot of difficulties, now her publisher is paying the man’s legal expenses and altering future editions of the book to emphasize that the name | Read More »

    Lena Dunham’s rape-libel catches up with her

    This has been a bad week for the Feminist-Rape-Media Complex. The Rolling Stone story of a vicious gang rape at the University of Virginia, which is now looking like the manipulation and betrayal of an emotionally fragile young woman by a grasping and amoral journalist, has melted down into a seething, effervescing puddle of molten #FAIL which will, if there is actually justice in the | Read More »

    The Hillary-is-inevitable bandwagon is in trouble

    The Hillary inevitability bandwagon seems to be headed for the ditch. The bat-guano anti-American left as personified by MoveOn.org has decided that Elizabeth Warren is the best candidate as she would create synergy by being the first woman, Native American, and privileged, sinecured law professor to run for president: Some Democrats are “Ready for Hillary.” MoveOn.org is ready for Elizabeth Warren. The liberal group is | Read More »
