How Hamas’ Casualty Figures Became News

Posted by  ▪  September 1, 2014

The Washington Post misses a chance to expose Hamas’ deception

Central to the charge that Israel’s conduct warrants an investigation by an “independent” commission to investigate whether it committed war crimes is the premise that Israel, in defending itself against rockets launched by Hamas into its territory, caused a disproportionate number of civilian deaths.

7 Times the Public Received Bad News Without Social Media

Posted by  ▪  September 1, 2014

Really? No one noticed the underbelly of humanity before Twitter? We beg to differ. That time that jerk Aaron Burr…

Posted by  ▪  September 1, 2014

Reminders of Obama’s policies could be toxic for dems in battleground states.

It seems like even the most staunch democrats are waking up to the realities of Obama’s America—especially the political realities. Republicans need to capture 5 of the 6 most competitive Senate seats in the 2014 midterms to regain control of the chamber and end Majority Leader Harry Reid’s reign of terror…

Let’s talk about your “End-of-Life,” says AMA

Posted by  ▪  September 1, 2014

Will Medicare follow the example of private insurers?

The American Medical Association wants to jumpstart a health care discussion that died a political death almost five years ago: to “death panel,” or not to “death panel?” Of course, we’re not talking about actual panels making life-or-death decisions on behalf of patients, but mandated coverage for “end of life discussions” between…

Michael Brown robbery

When can you legally use a gun against an unarmed person?

Posted by  ▪  August 31, 2014

Legally, it doesn’t matter that both Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin were “unarmed” when shot to death.

One of the most common laments to come out of Ferguson these last days has been that surely it was outrageous for Office Darren Wilson to use his service pistol to shoot an “unarmed” Mike Brown.  (Earlier iterations of this narrative went further in their misinformation, describing the 18-year-old 6’4″ 292…

Is Joe Biden Running for President in 2016?
