Controversial cartoonist Bosch Fawstin has received more than a dozen death threats since he took the top prize at the now-famous “draw Muhammad” free speech rally in Garland, Texas last month. The event descended into chaos after two armed terrorists attempted to storm the venue. Fawstin appeared on last night’s…

Illinois government deadlocked, shutdown a possibility

Posted by

Illinois’ new budget year starts tomorrow, and unless Republicans and Democrats can come to an agreement on fiscal policy, the state will kick things off without the ability to pay the bills. Illinois has a reputation for being largely rural, yet bafflingly Democratic. The Chicago machine—not those languishing in my old…

We’ll be covering the announcement live here. He’s supposed to kick off any time, and already correspondents are describing the mood in the venue as “a madhouse.” Sounds apropos, considering Christie’s tendency to buck at the rhetorical trends his colleagues embrace.

Two stories reported yesterday raise questions whether the Obama administration is willing to devise a deal that will be comprehensive to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear device and even if it could, would it have the will to enforce it. In the first case, Jay Solomon of The Wall Street Journal reported (Google…

If you had asked me twenty years ago to predict what the 21st century would hold in store, “religious wars” probably wouldn’t have been tops on my list. But it should have been. Right now we’re seeing many forms of religious war. The most obvious has raged between radical Islam and everybody else….

The Supreme Court ruled against the Environmental Protection Agency 5-4 this week, saying the EPA erred in not considering costs when implementing new regulations governing toxic emissions from coal-fired power plants: The 5-4 decision Monday went against an Environmental Protection Agency mercury rule that forces utilities to shutter old coal plants or…

It’s often the most innocuous things in life that result in monumental memories. A few years ago, twins brothers from North Carolina fell in love with the board game Battle Ship. Battle Ship sparked their curiosity in naval warfare. And the rest is, as they say, history. A family vacation to…

SCOTUS temporarily halts Texas abortion law

Posted by
6/29/2015 at 6:15pm
Could the Supreme Court’s latest actions result in a set-back for the pro-life community? Wednesday, 10 of Texas’ 19 abortion clinics were set to close thanks to a law passed by the Texas Legislature in 2013. The law that would’ve required abortion clinics to maintain hospital-like standards was enough to force 10…

Greece on the Brink

There are financial crises, and then there are financial crises. Greece is smack in the middle of the latter. Today Greek officials instituted drastic controls over the country’s financial institutions, making it difficult (if not impossible) for citizens to access money locked down in bank accounts. Officials have limited cash withdrawals…

Another day, another tiny, minuscule, pin-width beam of light shining down on who knew what, when, and how during and in the wake of the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Most recently, we saw Sid Blumenthal, having been dragged before a Congressional committee, providing investigators with a batch…

Great Supreme Court News (for voter fraud and open borders)

Posted by
6/29/2015 at 1:00pm
The Supreme Court today refused to accept a case which sought to allow states to supplement a federal voter registration form so as to require proof of citizenship to vote. Such proof is particularly important given how freely many states are handing out drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, and the Obama administration’s unilateral…

Defenders of the Confederate Flag, prepare to feel really, really uncomfortable—you have an unlikely ally(ish). MSNBC’s Ed Schultz is a dependable progressive shill. When Republicans retook the Senate last year, he was apoplectic; when he encounters right wing opposition, he blatantly shuts it down. All in all, he’s a belligerent with a…

At least no one got hurt this time. But Gaza Flotilla III was a complete flop. Meant to break Israel’s perfectly legal naval blockade of Gaza (more on legality here), designed to stop Iranian shipments of weapons, the flotilla avoided the disaster of Gaza Flotilla I, in which 9 people were killed when…
