When We Have an Immigrant Flash Mob, Will the Media Report It?

immigration postal mark I have written a couple of times now about the crimes perpetrated in Cologne and elsewhere in Germany. Yesterday I saw this new report from the National Post which spelled out some aspects of what happened: "Cologne police report describes ‘chaotic and shameful’ mass sex attack." Police in Cologne, Germany, were overwhelmed by groups of men attacking women in the city center on New Year’s Eve, according to a leaked report. An unidentified senior official who wrote the report for Germany’s Read more [...] Continue reading →

Opposition to Sexual Assaults Brings Out Liberal Insanity

dont get raped I recently wrote that coordinated sexual assaults and robberies in Germany have stirred up opposition to immigration. Now it seems that the opposition has provoked all sorts of insanity from left-liberals. The New York Times reports, "Cologne Mayor’s ‘Arm’s Length’ Advice on Sexual Attacks Stirs Outcry." The mayor of Cologne has inflamed a debate in Germany about migrants and sexual harassment by suggesting that women can protect themselves from men on the streets by keeping them more Read more [...] Continue reading →

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Explains Why Young Women Lack Enthusiasm for Hillary

hillary PAC Why would anyone want Hillary Clinton as President? Between her email scandal, her role in Benghazi, her husband, and many other factors, it is surprising that she has a chance of becoming President. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way. Older Democrats detect a lack of enthusiasm for Hillary among younger liberals. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was recently interviewed in the New York Times and she was asked about this issue. Do you notice a difference between young women and women Read more [...] Continue reading →

The NSA Is the Executive Branch's Political Tool

sowell understand politicians Awhile back Mark Horne pointed out that if our masters really needed the NSA for terrorism they wouldn't be using its illegal spy powers for industrial espionage. Indeed, learning about NSA misbehavior cost Boeing business in Brazil. The recent scandal of the NSA spying on Congress demonstrates the same lesson. Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina writes at the Washington Examiner (emphasis added), According to recent reports, the Obama administration condoned the spying on of senior Read more [...] Continue reading →

Macy's: What Recovery?

fiscal cliff_02 It is amazing to me thinking about the news in 2008 and comparing it to the news now. The economy was getting ready to crash and the liberal media was hammering Bush and the Republicans in general. The crash that finally came was a huge help to the Democrats with the media operating as their echo chamber. Compare that to what is happening now. AP reports, "Macy's cutting 4,800 jobs after dismal holiday sales, a harbinger of hard times for retailers." Macy's is slashing jobs, a harbinger of hard Read more [...] Continue reading →

Troops Killed and Wounded but We Mustn't Call it "Combat"

afghanistan Oh, the illusions we must foster when a Nobel Peace Prize winner has to pretend to have withdrawn troops from Afghanistan. CNS News reports: A U.S. Special Operations service member was killed and two others were injured after coming under enemy fire in Afghanistan’s Helmand province Tuesday, but asked whether this meant U.S. troops were engaged in combat, a Pentagon spokesman said repeatedly that they were there in their mandated mission to “train, advise, assist” Afghan forces. Defense Read more [...] Continue reading →

House Committee: No Funding for New Gun Control

gunControl The House Appropriations Committee has warned the Department of Justice that it has no plans to approve funds for President Obama's latest gun control schemes. House Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies subcommittee Chairman Rep. John Culberson wrote in a terse letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that any executive orders on gun control should not be paid for out of already approved funding. "I want to express the committee's expectation that the Department of Justice will Read more [...] Continue reading →

U.S. Plans to Evict Syrian President and Dissolve Parliament because Democracy

obama syria This is so brazen even I am surprised. AP reports, "US sees Assad staying in Syria until March 2017." The Obama administration has a vision for Syrian leader Bashar Assad's departure. Even if it works, the president won't be around to see the plan through. An internal U.S. timeline for a best-case Syrian political transition, obtained by The Associated Press, sets a date of March 2017 for Assad to "relinquish" his position as president and for his "inner circle" to depart. That is two months after Read more [...] Continue reading →

Free Tampons Are a Matter of Justice

playtex tampons To understand how stupid we are getting (especially in California), consider this state legislator's tweet: This is a step to fix this gender injustice.Hopefully one day these items will be free #NoTaxOnTampons #TamponsForAll #TamponTax #Luxury — Cristina Garcia (@AsmGarcia) January 4, 2016 Let's deal with the tax-free part first. Despite the odious rhetoric of "justice" and "equality" and the gender politics, there is no way I'm going to oppose a sales tax reduction or exemption. Newser.com Read more [...] Continue reading →

TSA Punishes A Young Girl for Forgetting a Drink in Her Bag

tsa-checkpoint Robby Soaves at Reason.com wants to know why the TSA agent isn't being charged with sexual battery. It is a reasonable question (no pun intended) not least because TSA agents have been caught manipulating the system in order to get to do homosexual groping of targeted people. Vendela Payne, a 10-year-old from San Diego, California, inadvertently smuggled a Capri sun juice box into her luggage at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The TSA caught her, which triggered a mandatory pat down. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Resourcefulness & Courage Made Up for Lack of Handgun

hoodie gunpoint Two Houston car robbers (or three?) made three mistakes: they didn't realize that all car trunks now have a glow-in-the dark emergency release inside of them, and they kept the man's mobile phone which was like a homing beacon for the police. But their main mistake was thinking that the car salesman, Jose Martinez, would become compliant just because they beat him up and pointed a gun at him. Wrong salesman. There are several versions of this story and I think the statements the newswoman Read more [...] Continue reading →

Coordinated Sexual Assaults and Robberies in Germany Stir Up Opposition to Immigration

islam women This headline from AFP isn't that surprising, sadly: "New Year's sex assaults stoke German migrant debate." German leaders expressed shock over dozens of apparently coordinated sexual assaults against women on New Year's Eve in the western city of Cologne blamed on "Arab-looking men," but warned against anti-migrant scapegoating. Chancellor Angela Merkel called for a thorough investigation of the "repugnant" attacks, ranging from groping to at least one reported rape, allegedly committed in a large Read more [...] Continue reading →
