British newspapers recently featured the case of a Premier League footballer, Nicolas Anelka (his Muslim name is Abdul-Salam Bilal), who gave a “reverse Nazi salute” after scoring a goal a week or so ago. The quenelle, as the salute is called, was invented by the French comedian [...]
During the last five years, the United States has been stumbling along the edge of a precipitous cliff. At the bottom of the drop lies the redistributionist, egalitarian, government-directed society toward which Obama and his minions have been driving us since 2009. In fact, [...]
The 2013 Christmas Season has seen the passing of a great Vietnamese Patriot
The Christmas Season is generally seen as a time of enjoyment and of all good things; family reunions, gifts and religious observances. But 2013 brought a particularly unfortunate event to the [...]
Government power derives from collectivization of the people’s property. When government – a small group of other people after all – owns or controls vast amounts of the people’s property it is thereby empowered – like the Borg – to employ others to carry out its predictably [...]
Ken Cuccinelli, who elite GOP leaders deserted.
Amidst the Democratic Party meltdown might elite Republican Party operatives snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Don’t rule it out. Many elite Republicans lust to steer their party the way of the [...]
…[T]those who oppose ENDA [Employee Non-discrimination Act] for religious reasons, is it not possible to believe that homosexual acts are immoral, but also believe that LGBTs are entitled to fair treatment in the workplace?
~Professor Eric Martinez, National Paralegal College
30 years ago I used to [...]
Our cell phones are chewing up more and more spectrum – so the cell phone companies need more and more of it to keep us productive and happy. Thus there will be in our future a government-run two-pronged spectrum incentive auction – to get more of it [...]
ObamaCare is a blessing. And ObamaCare was passed by only Democrat lemmings.
And the fact that it is called ObamaCare and not the Affordable Care Act is a bonus. The Democrats running for re-election will not be calling Obama to campaign for his ObamaCare.
Folks like [...]
Despite rampant violence perpetrated by radical Muslims on innocent Syrian civilians, Secretary of State John Kerry told the Arab news media on Tuesday that he may be prepared to meet with Islamists regarding a future caliphate once President Bashir al-Assad and his government are deposed.
If you didn’t know better you might think that the word Christmas was the dirtiest of dirty words and one not worthy of being uttered in public. Salvation Army bell ringers with their red kettles, Christmas carols, colored lights and Christmas trees are now increasingly considered to [...]
After four and a half years of the most inept administration of foreign policy concerning the Middle-East since a Georgia peanut farmer played a term as POTUS and managed to lose the late shah’s Iran as a valuable ally in favor of a theocractic tyrant who wished to drag his country and the region [...]
Women used to be faced with a dilemma: forgo a career to stay at home and raise children, or sacrifice the upbringing of your children in order to pursue a career. Since the 1960’s, feminists and conservatives have sparred over this choice. Feminists criticized mothers [...]
Faites votre destin, âmes désordonés,
Et fuyez l’infini que vous portez en vous.
final lines of Baudelaire’s “Delphine et Hippolite”
I’m trying not to get really ticked off.
I never watched Duck Dynasty before The Incident, and I [...]
I always considered Barack Obama an empty suit, a coffeehouse communist, doomed to replay the tragic political and economic mistakes of the past because he lacked any sense of history beyond the clichés of fashionable and comfortable college Marxism.
Like the characters and events in his autobiography [...]
In clear violation of op-ed protocol, this week I’m suspending prose and having a little good, clean, limericky fun at liberals’ expense because – well, because they just make it so darn easy. (Warning: Some are bad and others worse. Side effects may include groaning, nausea, vomiting and involuntary eye-rolling.)
Here they are in no [...]
There’s a YouTube video doing the rounds at the moment. In fact it’s gone viral (again?); even though the words were spoken in 2010. Why is that ? Because a Jewish woman has said things which some people – including myself – have a problem with. [...]
(SPINDLER & VAUGHN)
I was fortunate recently to have a chance to interview Ted Nugent, the American rock ‘n’ roll, sporting and political activist icon. “The Nuge” has sold more than 40 million albums of classic rock and performed more than 6,500 concerts, singing and playing guitar.
(Minutes before this posting, I read Erick Erickson’s for today on Townhall.com: “Why December 25th?” Though Mr. Erickson’s argument is entirely different in detail, the reader will find that its thrust is identical to mine.)
December 25 isn’t really a celebration of the winter solstice: our would-be neo-pagan brethren are as misinformed about that as [...]
President Barack Obama recently uttered one of the most frustrating, angering and mind-numbingly uninformed things ever extruded by a government official.
ObamaCare is in the midst of its gi-normous, historic, inevitable fail – taking down with it the entire health insurance industry and large swaths of [...]
You’ve got to hand it to President Obama’s partisans among the pundits: they won’t be deterred, no matter how bad the President’s policies prove to be.
Even as Mr. Obama himself continuously alters and delays implementation of his own healthcare agenda (all without congressional participation), his faithful followers in [...]
