Guess Who the State Department Welcomes to a Lead Role in Human Rights!

Obama Saudi bow The State Department welcomes the nation known for daily beheadings, and even using crucifixion, to head a U.N. human rights panel. Saudi Arabia is going to head a United Nations human rights panel. It is ludicrous. Saudi Arabia has sentenced a young man to crucifixion for a crime he allegedly committed as a teen and for which he was convicted by a secret trial that apparently involved tortured. Under the headline, “U.S. State Department 'Welcomes' News That Saudi Arabia Will Head U.N. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Trained Moderates Turn over U.S. Arms, Vehicles to Al Qaeda in Syria

mccain Syrian terrorists We trained moderates to fight in Syria and they gave terrorists our weapons and trucks as soon as they entered the country. Here is another chapter in the story we have been reading for years, as reported this time in The Telegraph, “US-trained Division 30 rebels 'betrayed US and hand weapons over to al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria'” Pentagon-trained rebels in Syria are reported to have betrayed their American backers and handed their weapons over to al-Qaeda in Syria immediately after re-entering Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Campaign to Criminalize Climate Change Dissent

 A group of scientists are petitioning Barack Obama to criminalize climate change dissent by prosecuting the dissenters under RICO law. Since most scientists in the United States and the Western countries generally are a pack of welfare dependents, this request amounts to the government asking itself to expand its power. “Science” is now a government-industry that has massively expanded since WWII through the state university system as well as through funding for “research.” So these Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mitch McConnell: Republicans Must Increase Spending!

mitch mcconnell The Tea Party handed power to Mitch McConnell so he can now publicly spit on them. After learning about how the budget process was completely and inexplicably derailed, this should come as no surprise to anyone. Mitch McConnell is now calling for spending increases. According to the Hill: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged Wednesday that he and the House Speaker are discussing a short-term government funding bill to avoid a shutdown on Oct. 1. McConnell (R-Ky.) also warned his Read more [...] Continue reading →

Gabrielle Union Speaks About the Price of Delaying Childbearing

gabrielle union Fame and fortune are enjoyable, but delaying childbearing can be forever, as Gabrielle Union reminds us. The common ideology in the United States is that there are no tradeoffs between children and career. Weirdly, our culture will emphasize such tradeoffs for men, but the laws of opportunity and risk somehow don’t apply to women. Recently Redbook put out their “ageless” issue—which is rather ironic since they interviewed the 43-year-old Gabrielle Union who spoke openly about the price Read more [...] Continue reading →

Capitalism Destroys Poverty; It Is Righteous, not Sinful

Pope Francis 1 Capitalism destroys poverty but people who fight against capitalism destroy the poor. Pope Francis has made it clear that he will use his office to promote Leftist weather scams and prefers input from pagan pantheists to skeptical climate scientists. It is quite obvious this Christian leader hates cultures of freedom, trade, entrepreneurship, and private charity. He prefers societies dominated by corrupt and totalitarian governments. He is an ambassador for turning the few islands of prosperity Read more [...] Continue reading →

No Promise from Obama to Put His Boot on the Throat of EPA

epa logo When BP spilled oil in the Gulf, Obama officials promised to keep his “boot on the throat” of the oil company. But the EPA is exempt. In case you don’t remember, here is the NPR headline from May 2010: "BP Will Feel Either 'Boot On Throat' Or 'Feet To Fire'" The Obama Administration clearly wants to send the signal that it's keeping the pressure on BP to do everything humanly possible to stop the uncontrolled flow of oil in the Gulf of Mexico and to get the company to pick up the cost for Read more [...] Continue reading →

Republican Leaders Are not Leading Much with Trump Around

dead-gop-elephant Donald Trump did not damage the GOP but represents the damage done by Republican leaders. Every time the first symptom of a man's folly appears, he strongly condemns it as a miscreant who came in uninvited and as an alien to everything he stands for. In other words, stop telling me how Donald Trump is damaging the Republican Party. The fever is not the cause of the infection. At the Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes pretty much tells Republican leaders they have no one to blame but themselves: “The Read more [...] Continue reading →

We Have Not Yet Begun to Fight Planned Parenthood

joker lion pp To fight Planned Parenthood requires a long-term commitment. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but while I am posting about the loss of stature of Planned Parenthood, I also need to report that we have a long way to go. Here’s Mollie Hemmingway in The Federalist: “Thanks To Media Blackout, Most Americans Are In The Dark About Planned Parenthood Videos.” That seems incredible to me, but there are still a great many people who don’t watch Fox and don’t pay attention to the conservative Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Obamacare Exchanges are Complete Failures

ObamacareAmbulance So if the Obamacare exchanges don’t work, why does anyone trust the government to deliver healthcare? This blog reported on the failure of the Obamacare exchanges back in May. The situation is only getting worse. Now, the Associated Press has even admitted to it: “State Obamacare Exchanges Struggling With High Costs and Disappointing Enrollment.” State-run health insurance markets that offer coverage under President Barack Obama's health law are struggling with high costs and disappointing Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Clinton Has Power to Make New York Times Change Its Story

Hillary-Clinton Can you imagine what would happen if anyone else tried to make the New York Times change its story? The scandal of Hillary Clinton’s private email server has just reached a new point, since it looks like proof has been discovered that she used it to send classified information. But even with this revelation we see how Hillary Clinton gets special treatment. At Politico.com we learn that the media bows in deference to her even when they catch her. The New York Times made small but significant Read more [...] Continue reading →

Police Are Still Hiding the Evidence in the Twin Peaks Shooting

twin peaks It seems more and more that, if this was really a gang fight, that the police would not be hiding the evidence. When I first heard about the Twin Peaks shootings and the arrests, it was because some of the conservative blogs found the Waco Police Department’s story did not make sense. Then NPR joined in and pointed out some more reason to believe that innocent people were being prosecuted. Now Conor Friedersdorf is writing about it in the Atlantic: “Waco Is Suppressing Evidence That Could Read more [...] Continue reading →
