I left a five minute message yesterday on the office telephone of President Lawrence of Brandeis University explaining why his decision to rescind the proposal to award Aayan Hirsi Ali an honorary degree was “A small step for Brandeis but a giant step for dhimmitude” (a […]
If you think so, you need to reconsider.
The initial endeavor of newsmen is to “tell all”. Except when the gathering of information imperils the journalist’s life, that is the easy part. Alas, the bare facts get the public bored. By the […]
Since the Internet now permeates our lives in every possible way, it is disturbing that Obama has relinquished U.S. control over its underlying structure. Control will be turned over to a global panel, which will include totalitarian countries that do not value our First Amendment protection of […]
Network Neutrality is socialism for the Internet – it guarantees everyone equal amounts of nothing.
We’ll let college professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney identify Net Neutrality’s objective:
“(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the […]
Crimea. Venice. Scotland. Quebec. Catalonia. Colorado.
Crimea’s vote, a popular vote of no confidence in Kiev, to leave Ukraine (and rejoin Russia) is in some ways unique.
In other ways it appears part of an emerging, worldwide, trend.
Venice voted last week, in a nonbinding referendum, to […]
The West Wing was for several years a fabulous television show – about a Democrat White House. Yes, I know, I’m a conservative and I wasn’t supposed to like it. But great writing is great writing, and Aaron Sorkin can seriously write. (He doesn’t bat 1.000, but […]
In the summer of 2012, when Marita Noon and I began our collaboration in exposing the entire green corruption scheme, we covered a favored White House Spanish conglomerate in our piece “How Democrats Say ‘Crony Corruption’ in Spanish: Abengoa.”
Early this year, we received bombshell testimony, […]
The Democrats, liberals and progressives in America have been assigned a distinctively political obligation to keep in step and in sync with their chosen one, Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Not to help America as a whole but to maintain the illusion of Obama’s success. They have been […]
On Wednesday March 26, an audit of expenditures of federal funds by Wyoming government agencies was released to the public, in which the state Department of Education received extremely high marks for proper spending practices. This situation hardly made the news, and has generally been greeted with […]
If a famine befell us and you couldn’t save everyone, would you withhold the food you had and let every citizen starve rather than endure the inequality of just saving some? If recent history is any guide, certain leftists just might say yes.
A good example of […]
Halperin and Co. wrote a book about Obama’s bid for re-election. The Book Double Down Game Change 2012 doesn’t quite make sense and then it also makes a great deal of sense. Parts of the book are written as though the authors were sitting in on […]
Fate is a disposition inherent to changeable things, by which Providence connects each one with its proper order.
~ Aquinas (attributed to Boethius)
The idea of Fate in literature, poetry, philosophy, politics and history was often presented in human form, sometimes abstractly personified as the opponent […]
They say that lightening never strikes twice in the same place. Not true. It does if you stand high atop a cliff’s edge with a lightning rod above your head during a thunderstorm. In fact, in the unlikely event you survive the first strike, it’ll keep right […]
According to Catholic News Agency, Sean Cardinal O’Malley, along with a group of liberal activist Catholic Bishops, recently celebrated Mass at the U.S./Mexican border in support of American immigration amnesty legislation in which the Holy sacrifice of the Mass, along with the Sacred Species, the very Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of […]
How can the United States of America jump-start job creation? Obviously there’s nobody better to answer that question than a politician who’s been on the U.S. government payroll for nearly half a century and has never owned or operated a business – Vice President Joe Biden. “There’s no reason […]
“Mr. President, we will not let you run roughshod over our rights. We will challenge you in the courts, we will battle you at the ballot box. Mr. President, we will not let you shred our Constitution… It is decidedly not a time for the faint of […]
The Republican National Committee recently passed a resolution, by the unanimous vote of its National Committeepeople, calling for the creation of a national Monetary Commission. This legislation is prime sponsored in the House of Representatives by Joint Economic Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tx) and in the US […]
Crony Socialism is, in part, the government cutting special deals for certain companies – at the expense of other companies, and the free market.
It is particularly pathetic when companies publicly troll for this treatment. It’s almost as if they’ve given up on actually, you know, […]
There has been a lot of talk or writing last week about the housing bubble. And that the so called mortgage fraud that was to be taken to the wood shed is another Obama fantasy that just ain’t happening.
One writes about Holder in a NY […]
Ever since the 2009 advent of the Tea Party, Democrats on Capitol Hill and the liberal media have been obsessed with its destruction. Of course such a response is entirely understandable, since a cohesive and effective alliance of grassroots conservatives working to uphold the Constitution and maintain […]
“I [sic] give my left n** to bang down your door and come for your gun,” said the cop. This statement, made by Branford, Ct., police officer Joseph Peterson in a Facebook conversation earlier this month, created quite a blogosphere firestorm. Internet commenters from Sacramento to Saratoga […]
We shouldn’t be talking about 2016. It’s 2014 and there are obviously important mid-term elections in November. Beyond those, in 2015 there are significant local and state contests across the country, which in many ways are more important than this year’s horseraces. However, discussing the next presidential […]
A few years ago, I was privileged to hear Justice Antonin Scalia speak at my husband’s alma mater, Iona College. On display, among other things, were the wit and wisdom which have made him perhaps the most indispensable conservative in America. And he wowed the audience of […]
