    Libya and Egypt Are The Price of Ineptocracy

    Far from being a surprise, what happened yesterday on the 11th anniversary of 9-11 was an easily forseen outcome of the dangerous and feckless game the Obama Administration has been playing with American foreign policy.

    Quote a FactChecker Earn a Ban


    Fact checking groups have become little more than partisan hacks in service of the Administration and various Democrat politicians. Today the Washington Post’s Fact Checker distinguished itself by a level of duplicity rarely achieved by anyone in the media earning itself the first ever award to the Heady, for torturing the truth in the service of a partisan political goal. And it makes me consider banning, out of hand, anyone who quotes one.

    Dave Weigel: Conservative Journalism = Trolling

    During the Democrat Convention we were entertained by prominent Democrats calling Republicans Nazis, God and Jerusalem being dropped from the Democrat platform and soundly booed by delegates, and of course huge fuzzy pink house shoes that were supposed to represent the endangered vaginas if Romney and Ryan are elected. Reporting on that, according to dunderkind Dave Weigel is not journalism it is the equivalent of internet trolling.

    General Dempsey Tacitly Endorses Barack Obama

    Two weeks ago Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey criticized a veterans group for opposing Barack Obama’s re-election for using “the uniform for partisan politics.”. Two nights ago a retired admiral was a featured speaker at the Democrat convention and not a word was said about it. This points to a deeply compromised and co-opted military leadership that is actively supporting Obama’s re-election.

    Obama’s Solution: Cargo Cult Economics


    While the Democrats often deride conservative economic policies as “trickle down”, trickle down at least has the virtue of working. What the Democrats are proposing is Cargo Cult Economics based on building idols and waiting for results.

    Barack Obama and the Rise of Ineptocracy

    The new Bob Woodward book is a damning profile of a Barack Obama out of his depth and with only a tenuous grip on reality. He is silly, arrogant, vain, incompetent and irrelevant. He is truly our first ineptocrat and one hopes his style of governance vanishes with him.

    General Martin Dempsey And An Apolitical Military

    In his misguided criticism of the veterans of Special Operations for America, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, explicitly did what he criticized. He became the first serving general officer to directly support any politician’s re-election and he should be ashamed of himself.

    Captain Bullcrap Steps On Himself

    You didn’t have to be a genius to predict this wasn’t going to work out well for our president, Captain Bullcrap. The hallmark of his presidency has been trying to portray an obvious wimp and sissy as an tough leader. To do that we have to over look his Mom jeans and girlie baseball throw and focus on how tough it is for the Leader | Read More »

    Updated and Bumped: Ambitious Writers, Here’s Your Opportunity

    Jonathan Chait Hears A Dog Whistle

    We’ve been told now for over four years that any criticism of Obama is not based on his ineptness, incompetence, corruption, or moral cowardice but rather on our own racism. If you want to know why Obama’s “you didn’t build that” statement resonates, it has nothing to do with Obama’s dislike for America or his rejection of hard work and exceptionalism as American values. Rather | Read More »

    Obama Administration To Increase Fast & Furious After Aurora Shootings

    The only saving grace of having a president devoid of principles, experience, or class is that he and his sycophants, when under pressure, routinely push forward statements and ideas that are so bizarre as to be unbelievable outside a very low-brow comedy routine. For instance. Having suffered through 40 months of economic mismanagement unlike anything we’ve experienced since FDR, we’re told by the president, with | Read More »

    Dan Bongino Brings His “A” Game

    (h/t to Legal Insurrection) For those of you who don’t know, Dan Bongino is running for US Senate in Maryland. He has an uphill battle in a dark blue state trying to unseat legacy corruptocrat Ben Cardin. Dan is a great guy and would make a superb Senator. Take the time to listen to him speak and then drop by his website and donate.

    WaWa and Kerry: A Tale of Two Memes

    Yesterday saw two trial balloons floated by the Obama campaign and its surrogates in their ongoing struggle to define Mitt Romney as someone who should not be president.  The first was centered around a Romney campaign stop in Pennsylvania over the weekend, the second about an announcement, of sorts, to the media over who has been selected to act as Romney in Obama’s debate rehearsals. | Read More »

    Vote No On The McGurk Nomination

    On Wednesday the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a confirmation hearing for Brett McGurk to be US Ambassador to Iraq. There is no reason for any sane person to support this nomination. In terms of qualifications, Mr. McGurk brings very modest accomplishments to the table. While he has risen rapidly in rank there is little evidence of real substance in his record. He doesn’t speak | Read More »
