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 […]
The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of […]
It’s time now for something to be done. He who has the courage to act must know that he will probably go down in German history as a traitor. But if he fails to act, he will be a traitor before his own conscience.
~Col. Claus Schenk […]
For more than 237 years, America has been the most free, peaceful, prosperous, generous and yes, well-armed society on earth. Through most of this period, parents taught their children to pray, to honor thy mother and father, to tell the truth, to work, sacrifice, earn and own, […]
This article is about the travesty called the Common Core Standards. Its design began before Obama was elected but I and others refer to it as Obamacore because Obama played a major role in imposing it on the country, and like Obamacare it was passed without being read, and […]
Though it is not yet 2014, the Republican “Establishment” is already attempting to determine the party’s candidate for the 2016 presidential election. And their top picks range all the way from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Any true conservatives are immediately pronounced “unelectable” and their candidacies declared dead on […]
