Gov. Scott Walker (R, Wisconsin) and the Washington Post’s institutional bias.

Posted by on | January 27, 2015 | No Comments

You’ve no doubt already heard that Scott Walker is, yea, indeed, running for President – with a hundred ‘Throne of Skulls’ jokes already blossoming on Twitter* – but I don’t want to hit that.  I want to hit a problem that I have with the Washington Post’s reporting on the subject.  This passage, in particular: [...]

Democrats suffer butthurt over Benghazi committee

Posted by on | January 27, 2015 | No Comments

It is difficult not to feel sorry for a mildly-addled and useless time-server like Elijah Cummings. He was named “stuckee” by the Democrat caucus and serves as the senior Democrat on the special committee Trey Gowdy chairs investigating Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s malfeasance and misfeasance in the Benghazi tragedy.

Back in September, I wrote The Top Three Reasons Why Liberals Hate Conservatives. The piece did fairly well in social media, and I thought it was a pretty decent summation of why there is so much hate, anger, and vitriol boiling on the left. Then I read Ten Reasons Why I Am No Longer a [...]

Posted by on | January 27, 2015 | No Comments

Across the country, unions are reeling. Union membership is at historic lows. Federally, card check legislation has now been dead for years. In Wisconsin, Scott Walker took on public sector unions and won. Michigan has put right-to-work laws on the books. Even in blue states (New Jersey, Illinois, California) some steps have been taken to try [...]

Christians vs. Muslims

Posted by on | January 27, 2015 | Comments Off

I think this author, like many others, gets it wrong by comparing Jesus and Mohammad to try to get at the roots of modern Islamic violence.  I don’t think you can explain the (relative) non-violence of Christians today vs. the prevalence of violence among certain portions of the Islamic religion by looking at their scriptures.

Five Ways Iran Is Cheating On Nuclear Deal

Posted by on | January 27, 2015 | No Comments

Obama’s Deadly Gamble Most of President Obama’s misleading statements in the State of the Union address are progressive fantasies that will never see the light of day. But his deceptive assessment of the nuclear talks with Iran is more than a fantasy. It’s deadly gamble. “Our diplomacy is at work with respect to Iran, where, [...]
