The Senate Doesn’t Hate Ted Cruz because of His Personality, but His Politics

Maybe “hate” is too strong a word. The issue was raised by Donald Trump and the Washington Times ran a story about it. Donald Trump’s claim that Sen. Ted Cruz is “nasty” and “everybody hates” him in Washington isn’t ringing true with his Senate colleagues, who say he’s a passionate legislator — though they haven’t rushed to embrace the Texan, either. So Trump says they hate Ted Cruz. The thing to keep in mind is that the Washington Times attempts to serve a conservative, Read more […]

Bruce Fein in Washington Times: End the CIA!

Why should conservatives support the liberal CIA? Other than Ron Paul, during his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, I never thought I would hear this from a conservative outlet. But Bruce Fein has re-launched the idea at the Washington Times: “It’s time to abolish the CIA.” The CIA should be abolished. After a trial run of 67 years, the agency has proven a sorcerer’s apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind Read more […]

The Fake Story About Jews Being Required to Register in Ukraine

Last night I saw a spate of headlines that indicated Jews in a Ukraine city located in the more pro-Russian region had been ordered to register. Here was how the Washington Times began its story. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that Jews in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk were recently given notices instructing them to officially identify themselves as Jews. “In the year 2014, after all of the miles traveled and all of the journey of history, this is not just intolerable, it’s Read more […]

The Pseudo-Patriotism of the Pledge of Allegiance

The Washington Times is the more conservative of the two traditional newspapers published for our nation’s capital. The editors decided to publish a story about rather obscure events in Hampden, Maine—a town of fewer than 5000 persons just southwest of Bangor. They seem to think that their readership would be interested to know that a couple of the town councilmen have stopped standing for the Pledge of Allegiance. Mr. Brann, who’s served on the council for 14 years, told The Blaze that he Read more […]

Sending Out Soldiers With A Defective Weapon

I saw the Washington Times’ first story on the M4 Carbine but failed to post about it due to other news that was going on. Now I see that part two is out. Why should you care about the M4 Carbine? Because we need to understand that supporting the troops and supporting the military leadership is not always really the same thing. It is especially obvious when military leadership are willing to foist suboptimal weaponry, armor, and tools onto the soldiers. Then, when they get people killed, Read more […]

Washington Times On Barack Obama, The Wall Street President

The story starts off giving far too much credit to the President: Despite his best efforts, the president who vowed to conquer Wall Street and revive opportunity for everyday Americans on Main Street has this to show for his first five years in office: U.S. stock markets are in record territory, posting 30 percent gains just last year, and Wall Street is home once again to the biggest concentration of billionaires on earth, while wages for the middle class have barely kept up with inflation. No Read more […]

Minimum Wage Hike: Is the GOP Really Going to Surrender?

With Obamacare revealed as a massive, corrupt failure, how could the Democrats possibly hope to push through any of their agenda? Yet, the Washington Times editors suggest that Republicans are willing to aid and abet them on a minimum wage increase. With frightened Republicans scattering like bunny rabbits at the sound of distant thunder, a job-killing minimum-wage increase is probably inevitable. Only 63 House Republicans voted to maintain the budgetary discipline that prevented President Obama Read more […]

WebMD: A Lesson In How Government Buys Off Societal Leadership

The Washington Times today is reporting another instance of how the state subverts and takes over society using its leverage in taxed or borrowed money. In this case, it is about how WebMD a supposedly private website and resource was paid millions to produce Obamacare propaganda. But this shouldn’t surprise us. This is no different from the state department going to Syria, picking out who they want to be the “popular leadership” of the country, and throwing money at them to give them prestige Read more […]

Government Shutdown Theater Was Really National Security Theater?

Jonathan Jarvis, the Director of National Park Services says he’s responsible for closing the open air monuments. According to Politico.com, he was subpoenaed and testified: “The monuments and memorials on the National Mall do not take care of themselves,” Jarvis told the lawmakers, who had seized on the spectacle of metal barricades around open-air sites like the World War II Memorial. “Our rangers are there to prevent vandalism and impact to the monuments and the memorials. All of those Read more […]
