Seth Lipsky, the editor of the storied New York Sun (a brand distinguished by the long residency of Henry Hazlitt), recently, in the Wall Street Journal, brought to wider attention certain remarkable recent comments by Paul Volcker. Volcker spoke before the May 21st annual meeting of […]
In the cinematic classic “The Princess Bride,” Inigo Montoya utters the now oft-repeated “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Uber-Left government-media outfit Free Press is highly practiced in this disingenuous art. Their name is […]
The 2009 “Stimulus” bill contained $7.2 billion for local government broadband – the federal government giving city, county and municipal governments money to get into the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.
Shocker – government broadband is a disaster. It already was, for […]
Western civilization lied and people died.
It lied, that is, to itself.
I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a […]
I don’t like to write about health. But once in a while it is necessary. Most old folks know that by the time you reach 35 years of old, you start […]
No matter how many regulations exist – it’s never enough for the Left. Regs are their Jell-O – they think there’s always room for more.
New EPA Regs Issued Under Obama Are 38 Times as Long as Bible
Since President Barack Obama took […]
Many Americans feel frustrated and harbor little hope that much can be done to change our country’s course. While these feelings are understandable, they are misguided. There is a way back.
The Framers of the Constitution were cognizant that their creation was not […]
Iranian Supreme Leader Sayed Ali Khamenei
The recent major offensive of the Sunni Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) jihadis upon Mosul and central Iraq and subsequent drive towards Baghdad with the goal of a theoretical toppling of the […]
What’s hard to understand is why almost every time a British national newspaper (especially The Independent and The Guardian) publishes an article about some Muslim-related issue (say, the Islamisation of schools or, way back, the Danish cartoons) it either quotes the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) or […]
Though the event was barely mentioned in American media, Raouf Abdel-Rahman was executed on June 18 by ISIS (“Islamic State”) rebels in Iraq. With all the turmoil and bloodshed in that nation, the death of any single individual might seem inconsequential. However, it was he who presided […]
I live in the Southwest corner of Connecticut, one of the bluest states in the nation. But despite the influx of New York liberals that have ruled the roost here for the last 40 years or so, a great many of my neighbors are down-to earth, common […]
It is not histories I am writing, but lives; and in the most glorious deeds there is not always an indication of virtue or vice, indeed a small thing like a phrase or a jest often makes a greater revelation of a character than battles where thousands […]
SOME TIMES IT’S BETTER TO KEEP YOU TRAP SHUT IN MEDIA INTERVIEWS ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL WEALTH
Please don’t buy this prevaricating politician’s book.
COMING TO THE ‘REMAINDER’ BIN IN A BOOK STORE NEAR YOU VERY SOON
Sales are already plummeting to the 100,000 […]
As an attorney who concentrated in the area of tax law for fair number of years after spending another two years at a CPA office, which specialized in tax work, the entire Lois Lerner centered IRS scandal is enough to make a call for some sort of revolution sound like reasoned judgment. The whole […]
President Obama, You Are Such A Loser!
If you’re fed up with what’s going on in the Obama White House, then check out the following video:
Watch it in amazement as Megyn Kelly takes only 82 SECONDS to expose all of the Obama-administration’s incompentence & duplicity – surely a record-setting pace, worthy of inclusion […]
The left consistently blames guns for school shootings, while mostly ignoring the big elephant in the room: mental illness. Up until the 1960s, the severely mentally ill were locked up in psychiatric hospitals, for their own good and for the protection of society. The ACLU and the […]
JOHN VOIGHT TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
Yes, folks, there is actually a Tinseltown celebrity who tell it the way it should be told – not using the politically-correct Euro-speak of Babs Streisand or George Clooney, but instead the voice of someone who still want to believe in the American dream.
My proof, in living […]
A well-respected, non-partisan watchdog group, currently probing the allegations of misconduct and malfeasance at healthcare facilities run by the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department, is refusing to comply with a federal subpoena on Friday ordering the group to reveal the identities of — and information provided by — […]
So it turns out there that something doesn’t have to be true to be funny.
Many a thinking American – who knows media bias – finds the following perversely appropriate.
Young Get News From Comedy Central
Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Dan Rather … and Jon Stewart?
We are told incessantly by the media pundits that the GOP has moved sharply to the right. Supposedly, the Republican Party establishment is under assault from the Tea Party in a largely successful attempt to shift the Party’s center of gravity to starboard. No mention […]
This article will be a departure from my usual fare. I will not claim there is some Absolute Truth deeming soccer the bane of humanity’s sports. I do not contend that some objective, divine standard places it in Dante’s ninth circle of athletic arenas, though I wish […]
H.L. Mencken, in 1918, observed that “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
Much of politics is made up of what is called, in […]
If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d […]
The Republican Establishment is still reeling from the political repercussions of Virginia’s seventh district congressional primary, in which House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost to challenger Dave Brat, a political novice. Naturally, the entrenched party members are doing their best to convince themselves, and all of America, […]
