Those of you who actually have followed the evidence in the Zimmerman case, both before and during trial, know that every aspect of the racial narrative put forth by the Martin family attorneys, Al Sharpton, other agitators, and the media, has either been debunked explicitly or has nothing other than conjecture…

Day two in the trial of the accused Fort Hood shooter came to an unexpected halt Wednesday morning, after standby defense attorneys for Nidal Hasan requested to either be reinstated as official counsel or be removed from the case entirely.  The attorneys filed a motion, explaining that Hasan’s strategy in court…

Devastating Report from NGO Monitor on the tactics of the “Jewish wing of the [Palestinian solidarity] movement”

I don’t know if the irony was intended. A few months ago, Roger Cohen wrote a column called Israel’s True Friends. The photograph illustrating the column showed a demonstration of the group Jewish Voices for Peace. (JVP) Last month, the watchdog group, NGO-Monitor released its latest report on the group. The report, titled Driving…

He’s running for Senate in Arkansas in a bid to unseat Democrat Mark Pryor. I know almost nothing about Cotton or the Republican field.  Who else is expected to run in the Republican primary? This ad just released by Pryor attacking Cotton with the usual Democratic hyperbole and misdirection, tells me at least…

Elizabeth Warren on our rankings of the 10 Democrats most likely to wind up as the party’s presidential nominee in 2016, many people scoffed…. But, a new Quinnipiac poll proves…

During the 2012 campaign, Obama mocked Mitt Romney’s statement that Russia was our greatest geopolitical threat. In classic Obama style, he played a linguistic slight of hand, failing to distinguish “geopolitical” threat from other threats. Obama’s canned sound bite zinger of the debate was “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their…

Merritt Landry Allies Developing Narrative of Innocence

Posted by

It is perhaps inevitable that comparisons will be drawn between the  recently completed murder/self-defense trial of George Zimmerman in Florida and the just beginning travails of self-defense shooter Merritt Landry in New Orleans. Indeed, I’ve already begun to do so myself (see “Zimmerman Redux: The Breaking Louisiana Self-Defense Case of Merritt Landry”). More…

Rumors were flying the past few days about a dramatic new disclosure coming from another victim of sexual harassment by San Diego Bob Filner (Democrat). The tales were wrong… but only in the fact they didn’t fully convey the scale of disgusting behavior offered up by our city’s chief executive. During a press…

From Amy: It’s been a while since I’ve found a car worth photographing, but I finally spied this one in the parking lot of Costco in Parker, CO. The back window was also filled with patriotic stickers. It renews my faith in humanity to see the occasional conservative car. Sometimes I wonder if there’s anyone…

Posted by

Of course, the two cases bear no resemblance at so many levels. But Oprah can’t help herself, and debases the memory of Emmett Till by comparing Till’s whistling at a white woman and subsequent beating death to the violence perpetrated by Trayvon Martin upon George Zimmerman who acted in legally justifiable self defense. Oprah thinks…
