    NATO foreign ministers meet to discuss Russian aggression

    NATO foreign ministers meet to discuss Russian aggression

    I’m thinking of giving up blogging. Maybe I’ve lived too long (there are many who would vote ‘yes’ on that question). Maybe the world has changed in ways that leaves me a stranger. I could handle homosexual marriage and the idea that some people think Obama is an “orator” and the notion that three lesbians could “marry” and do whatever it is they want to | Read More »

    Iran bill passes; the Constitution continues to die

    Iran bill passes; the Constitution continues to die

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 61% and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, with the willful acquiescence of most of the GOP, have in one act abrogated their responsibility, gutted the Constitution, and put the US on an irreversible glide slope towards a nuclear war involving Iran. The House on Thursday passed legislation requiring congressional review of a nuclear deal with | Read More »

    Russians: If Iran cheats there will be no sanctions

    Russians: If Iran cheats there will be no sanctions

    As we’ve pointed out over and over, the Obama administration, and to a great extent the toolish Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 42%, have been relentlessly lying about the nature of the Iran nuclear talks. The agreement that is being considered by Congress does nothing but lock in the forward progress of Iran’s nuclear weapons program while simultaneously removing sanctions. Not only does | Read More »

    Gay Marriage Activist was engineer in AMTRAK wreck

    Gay Marriage Activist was engineer in AMTRAK wreck

    Yesterday the left was all thigh-sweaty over the idea that the AMTRAK wreck in Philadelphia was a result of AMTRAK only getting north of $1 BILLION per year in federal subsidies and the GOP was to blame. In fact, their delight over the wreck and the potential of extracting more of our tax dollars to feed into the insatiable maw of yet another failed government | Read More »

    Failure Theater: Elizabeth Warren edition

    Failure Theater: Elizabeth Warren edition

    Failure Theater is a term we use here to describe the operating principle of the GOP. You make a big show of fighting for something your base really wants while at the same time sabotaging your own efforts. Finally, you just throw up your hands and say “we tried.” What follows after than will be either “the votes just weren’t there” or, “hey, look, over | Read More »

    The left on the AMTRAK wreck: GOP to blame

    The wheelsets on AMTRAK’s Northeast Regional Train 188 hadn’t even stopped spinning when the left took to Twitter to do what it does best: lie. Hope there are lots of Republicans on that Amtrak train then maybe they’ll have a come to Jesus moment and fund infrastructure. #LastWord — RB Blair (@TuxcedoCat) May 13, 2015 What assclowns like this are attempting to claim is that | Read More »

    Democrats do the right thing on TPP

    Democrats do the right thing on TPP

    Yesterday, Barack Obama was handed a sound repudiation by his own party. When votes were cast for cloture on the bill giving Obama “fast track” trade negotiation agreement only one Democrat senator voted  to give him that authority: President Obama collided with his own party Tuesday when Senate Democrats stalled consideration of a trade measure that would give the administration greater authority to negotiate more | Read More »

    Ted Cruz gets the Iraq Question Wrong

    Ted Cruz gets the Iraq Question Wrong

    Though Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains one of my top two picks for president in 2016 it was disappointing to see him play to the cheap seats in his interview with Megyn Kelly. When given a chance to answer the question that has caused Jeb Bush (not one of my top six picks for president) no end of grief he said | Read More »

    The Nation reverts to form

    The Nation reverts to form

    Last Friday marked the 70th anniversary of VE Day. It was a day marked by multiple commemorations across Europe. But the idiots at The Nation were not happy: Unfortunately, this opportunity has been squandered by President Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and other Western leaders who have refused to participate in the May 9 celebrations in Moscow. Rather than acknowledge and honor the Soviet | Read More »

    Canadian hate speech laws may be used against Israel boycott organizers

    Canadian hate speech laws may be used against Israel boycott organizers

    In Canada, various leftwing and pro-terror groups have used the odious hate speech laws to bludgeon critics into silence. Even though many of the cases are overturned upon appeal, the accused is out of a lot of money to defend themselves and their reputation is forever damaged. Now these laws might be put to good use: Via CBC: The Harper government is signalling its intention | Read More »

    Have we reached Peak Hillary?

    Have we reached Peak Hillary?

    Perhaps the best sign that Hillary Clinton’s campaign has finally begun to sink under the damage and weight inflicted by non-stop scandals, lies, and ineptitude comes from popular culture. Katherine Heigl is leaving network TV again. NBC has axed State of Affairs, her Monday night D.C. political thriller. Despite having a huge lead-in from The Voice, State only averaged 8 million viewers and a 1.9 rating | Read More »

    False gods, acquiescence, and Garland, Texas

    False gods, acquiescence, and Garland, Texas

    I intend for this to be my last posst on Pam Geller and the Garland shootings unless something else happens. Many have said that my motto is “often wrong but never in doubt” but now I am developing some doubts about my position as articulated here: Geller had the right to do what she did, she’s not to blame, but I wouldn’t have done it. | Read More »

    May 8, 1945. V-E Day

    “For this victory, we join in offering our thanks to the Providence which has guided and sustained us through the dark days of adversity. Our rejoicing is sobered and subdued by a supreme consciousness of the terrible price we have paid to rid the world of Hitler and his evil band. Let us not forget, my fellow Americans, the sorrow and the heartache which today | Read More »

    Bill O'Reilly is an idiot

    I know this will come as a shock to a lot of you. But the blowhard Bill O’Reilly can actually be an idiot when he longs for “strange new respect.” Such is the case with how he dealt with Pam Geller and the Garland, TX terrorist attack. Via the Daily Caller: “The dead men deserved what they got,” O’Reilly said. “But the incident was ignited | Read More »

    GOP Failure Theater: the Iran nuclear vote, Cruz-Rubio edition

    Failure Theater. When the GOP talks a good game about opposing Obama’s policies but, in fact, vote to go along with them. Yesterday the US Senate voted 98-1 to go along with whatever Barack Obama decides to give to Iran. Though the feckless Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 42% has portrayed it as a successful “bipartisan” bill, part of [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell | Read More »
