I don’t know who is behind this. I literally don’t know, but I have my suspicions. There’s only one person who could make such a thing, but I’m not naming names unless he or she comes out. But it’s just a suspicion. I have to say, “both of the candidates in…

I think Carville is sincere here. Via Mediaite: “I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years,” Carville asserted emphatically, as the panel discussed Cruz’s reported presidential aspirations. “I further think that he is going to run for president, and he is going to…

The death of the Tea Party movement has been greatly exaggerated. It wasn’t that long ago that the death of the Tea Party Caucus in Congress, a sure sign that the movement had fallen apart, was celebrated by the great intellect of MSNBC: The death of the Tea Party Caucus was an oversimplification, as…

At the time of the lockdown of Boston after the bombing, I noted that the Boston lock-down exposes gun culture divide over the issue of whether citizens hold up in their homes would be safer if armed. That suggestion caused a vehement reaction from liberals on Twitter, including the now infamous suggestion from one…

Syria Explodes Professor Jacobson has previously reported on two Israeli strikes: one against Hezbollah and one against Syria. What’s going on? Classic thing about the strike on Damascus is how it will be spun by Assad. He’ll argue it’s “PROOF” he’s facing a takfiri-Zionist alliance.— Phillip Smyth (@PhillipSmyth) May 5, 2013 Almost every free Syrian…

Chris Matthews loves to hate on the Tea Party and “right-wing” for supposed racism and other isms and phobias. Matthews claims to be opposing hate but exposes his own hate by inventing a reality which exists mostly in his own mind. His ability to see racism is legendary… in his own mind: Which is…

Rewarding law breakers is not a good idea, whether we’re talking about the securities laws or the immigration laws. The Gang of 8 plan rewards law breakers.  We’re told that we need to legalize law breakers because it’s the humane thing to do.  But in so doing, whether it results in citizenship…

Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard documents how the CIA talking points on Benghazi were dumbed down just prior to Susan Rice’s now infamous appearance at the U.N. where she insisted Benghazi was just about a movie.

The NRA seems to be broadening the issue of gun control into a broader culture war issue.  But it doesn’t seem to be the old religious/moral culture war, it’s more a liberty culture war. It makes sense from a strategic point of view because it ties into the somewhat libertarian trend among…
