31 minutes ago

Yes, believe it or not, last night I covered all three of those topics. In the first segment, I explained what Hanukkah is. I covered a bit of ground on Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush.

Visas, Hillary Clinton, and the Ecuadorean ‘alien smuggler.’

1 hour, 49 minutes ago

I wonder if the New York Times is not entirely comfortable with the idea of a Hillary Clinton candidacy: “The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic…

Communists Win the Day. Frank Marshall Davis Would Be Proud Of Obama

2 hours, 44 minutes ago

Few could have predicted that communist regimes would win the day on December 17, 2014. Communism was so twentieth century. But Barack Obama, promising to fundamentally transform America, has done so. His mentor, communist activist Frank Marshall Davis, would be proud of him. To reiterate my conclusion…

A Classic Tale of Good vs Evil: Six Devils in the San Fernando Valley

9 hours, 1 minute ago

C.S. Lewis once said “The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing good literature.” I don’t know about you, but I feel that way about conservative books, too, on a regular basis. One can tell a compelling story with latent values without ramming those values…

The Russians worked hard for this disaster, let them enjoy it

11 hours, 49 minutes ago

Russia is having as much fun as it can stand and it couldn’t happen to a nicer fascist kleptocracy. As it stands today the ruble is in a virtual freefall. And unlike the limited sanctions imposed by the West after Russia’s Ron-Paul sanctioned stripping of Crimea from Ukraine and its slow motion invasion…

Sure, let lame duck Barack Obama normalize relations with Cuba.

12 hours, 49 minutes ago

Since John F Kennedy, Presidential foreign policy towards Cuba can be summed up in one sentence: Let my successor be the one who has to be the guy that let Fidel Castro win.  Well, guess what: Barack Obama volunteered to be the poor, stupid sad sack that has to eat the pavement on that. CNBC reports:…

The Unified Ted Cruz Blame Theory Goes Up in Flames

14 hours, 51 minutes ago

It is already setting in as received wisdom among liberals both within the Republican party and without that Ted Cruz will be made to shoulder the blame for the nominations the Democrats rammed through the Senate this week. A good example of that comes from the arbiter of objective fairness to conservative…

Let’s Not Make Man Haron Monis A Man of Mystery and Intrigue

15 hours, 49 minutes ago

I don’t get the fascination that ensues when someone does something pointless and despicable like take hostages in a Yupscale, Australian version of Starbucks. Yet, like Christopher Dorner before him, Man Haron Monis has his laughable “Voxplainers” out there assuring us that he had “no known connections…

Three Questions for Jeb Bush

19 hours, 19 minutes ago

Jeb Bush has declared he is officially looking at running for the Presidency in 2016. Many conservatives acted with horror. But before dismissing Jeb Bush, I think conservatives should probe where his mind and heart are on issues. He was an excellent governor of Florida. I disagree with Bush on common…

I’m going to break a rule and tell you to go read a ThinkProgress piece, largely because whoever wrote it probably had to fight down a wave of nausea afterward.

Jane Mayer is an Idiot

1 day, 1 hour ago

Jane Mayer is a staggering idiot.

The “cromnibus” bill is soon to become law. The majority of House and Senate Republicans conspired with President Obama to fund his executive amnesty. Where do conservatives go from here?

Terrorism, interrogation, and the great cultural divide

1 day, 6 hours ago

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal and NBC News published the latest in a string of polls that suggest Senate Democrats’ grandstanding attempt to impugn the Bush-era CIA with a “bombshell” report on the interrogation of terrorists has backfired pretty badly: Most Americans don’t object to the CIA’s…
