About that Disappearing Polar Ice

frozen al gore NASA finally shows us that the disappearing polar ice came back years ago and has grown larger than before. Al Gore and others of his tribe have assured us that the polar ice is receding, vanishing, melting… But then odd things happen. Sometimes we get reports that the polar ice cap is thicker than ever. Other times a ship, carrying researchers who want to investigate the disappearing ice, gets stuck trapped in the ice that is not supposed to be there. The reason, we are now told, is that Read more [...] Continue reading →

Donald Trump Losing Again, Except He is Still Winning

trump face The Republican Establishment and the Mainstream Media are certain of Donald Trump losing, but it isn’t happening. Over and over again, the media has told us that “Trump is finished,” but it is never true. Every time his campaign is supposed to end in shame, he stays ahead of all the other candidates. Most recently he was supposedly doomed after the second debate. But even if he didn’t do as well as some might have liked, he didn’t hurt himself. Now the media has to admit how wrong they Read more [...] Continue reading →

Trump on Other Republicans: 'They want to start World War III over Syria. Give me a break!'

syria iraq isis Donald Trump blasts Republican foreign policy and suggests our Syria position will cause World War III. While this speech does display some of the flaws of Donald Trump (which he thinks of as his strengths) it also shows some insight into American policy and into what the voters want to hear. This video was posted at The Hill. Interestingly, the accompanying story gives the reader no idea that crowds were cheering him in Oklahoma City: “Trump: GOP rivals want to 'start World War III over Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrat Debate Organizers Cooperating with Obama Administration to Defeat Hillary

Biden tech Even though Joe Biden is not campaigning yet, the Democrat debate organizers are saving a place for him. A headline in the Washington Post makes the argument that the Obama Administration is working to defeat (or destroy) Hillary Clinton much more plausible. If you remember, several think that the Obama wing of the Democrats want to use Biden as their champion against Clinton. Now we find out that Biden has a “reserved” place waiting for him: “Debate organizers to Biden: We’ll keep the Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Pentagon v. People Magazine on Female Army Rangers

ranger logo People Magazine claims women were helped through their training and tests; the Pentagon says that is fiction. We’ve written about the army rangers and women before on this blog, and I suspect we will be doing so again. People Magazine has claimed, “Was It Fixed? Army General Told Subordinates: 'A Woman Will Graduate Ranger School,' Sources Say.” Way back in January, long before the first women attended the Army's elite Ranger School – one of the most grueling military courses in the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Media: Central Bankers Have a Special New Excrement Sandwich and You Are Going to Love It!

theft Central bankers are now planning to confiscate money from depositors and the media reports this as a bold innovation that will help the economy. The tone of this article is fascinating. It is like a doctor telling a patient he has terminal cancer by telling him a joke about it. Except in that scenario, the doctor did not cause the cancer. But the central bankers are planning on robbing people and they are announcing this as the best news for us, the little people. The media simply writes their Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Boehner Conflict Was about Goals and Values, not Tactics

John boehner While the media portrays the Boehner conflict as a division over strategy and a willingness to be “realistic,” it was really about an agenda. Michael A. Needham, the CEO of Heritage Action for America, has written about the Boehner conflict for Politico. His piece is a needed corrective to the media’s false story. An excerpt: The friction of the last several years has not been about differences in tactics. It has been about deep and irreconcilable disagreements over the goals the GOP should Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Conspiracy behind Pope Francis?

pope A Cardinal admits to his participation in the “mafia” that was successful in pushing the election of Pope Francis. As an outsider to all things Roman Catholic (other than the ancient Trinitarian Faith), I have no idea what is involved in selecting a Pope once the previous Pontiff has died or (rarely) resigned. But I think people naturally want to believe, whether they are Roman Catholic or not, that the decision is made in some sort of “spiritual” manner rather than being a hard-fought Read more [...] Continue reading →

Jeb Bush Is Right about Soak the Rich

eat the rich When he points out that tax breaks for the rich are not “unfair,” Jeb Bush Is right. I suppose this Politico headline will enrage many voters: “Jeb Bush defends tax breaks for wealthy.” The wealthiest Americans would receive sharply higher tax breaks under Jeb Bush’s tax proposal, the former Florida governor says, because they pay a disproportionate share of taxes in the first place. “The simple fact is 1 percent of people pay 40 percent of all the taxes,” Bush said on “Fox News Read more [...] Continue reading →

Have the Clintons Lost Their Magic?

09152012ObamaClinton Now that the Clintons are mired in new scandals, they seem to be getting snubbed by many celebrities who used to worship them. The Clintons, unlike most families, have an organization that represents them—The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. One can’t help but think that a change in behavior toward that organization might mean a change of attitude toward the family. Politico reports, “Clinton Foundation snubbed by the pope, Elton John, Janet Yellen.” The Clinton Foundation Read more [...] Continue reading →

Government Shaming Welfare Recipients is Hypocritical

Greetings_from_the_Welfare_State Shaming welfare recipients can appeal to conservatives but it won’t do any good and it doesn’t make sense. The Portland Press Herald reports, “Lewiston mayor wants welfare recipients’ names, addresses listed online.” Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald, a longtime critic of public assistance programs, wants to publicize the names and addresses of Mainers on welfare by creating an online registry of recipients. Writing in his regular column in the Twin City Times, a Lewiston-Auburn weekly Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Former Obama Administration Official with a Private Email Account

rahm Rahm Emanuel is now accused of using a private email account to deal with official business as mayor of Chicago. Using a private email account to conduct official business in government isn’t unique to Hillary Clinton, it seems. Rahm Emanuel is now being sued by the Chicago Tribune for doing the same thing as mayor of Chicago. According to the Associated Press, “Chicago Tribune files lawsuit over Mayor Emanuel's use of personal email for city business.” The Chicago Tribune is suing Mayor Read more [...] Continue reading →
