CNN reports that Libyans warned U.S. diplomats three days before the deadly violence that something was amiss. Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security. He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t…

Left-wing blog finds single example of Christian violence over film almost 25 years ago in France

Today in dumb left-wing equivalencies

We have had an epidemic problem of violence directed at people perceived as insulting Islam stretching back over 30 years.  That violence is part of a greater Islamist and Jihadist struggle against the West, and encompasses attacks on Christians, Jews and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East. Sometimes the violence does not…

New directions even in Ithaca

Posted by
9/16/2012 at 3:58pm
From November 2008: To live in Ithaca is to live in a city alive with anti-Bush, anti-war protest.  I often joke that the directions to my house in Ithaca  read as follows:  Take a right at the fifth Obama sign, a left at the third “Impeach Bush” placard, bear right at the…

Boston Globe unintentionally proves Elizabeth Warren’s ethnic fraud

Posted by

The Boston Globe ran a massive 3,000 word lead article this morning trying to excuse away Elizabeth Warren’s claim during her professional career to be minority and a woman of color based on supposed Native American ancestry. The story, which had the cooperation of the Warren campaign, comes just days before the…

Another kulak defending his harvest. From reader “M” who sent this to me just after Empty Chair Day: If this is showing up on the road in Massachusetts, maybe there is hope! I took the photo today on Rt. 9 East thru Westboro, MA. Saw it last week, but couldn’t pull over in time…

Radical left coalesces around Chicago Teacher protest

Posted by
9/15/2012 at 8:03pm
It appears the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), which held a solidarity rally this Saturday afternoon, is facilitating a rejuvenation of the Wisconsin-style protest movement. The scene at Saturday’s rally, held in anticipation of Sunday’s yes-or-no vote on the latest negotiated agreement, seemed more like a convention of far-left radicals than the…

Come on Chris, just say that Mitt Romney is whipping up racism.  You spent almost the entire RNC doing that.  It’s your claim to fame, your reason to be on television, your destiny. Why are you being so coy now, calling Romney “arrogant” for challenging Obama, as if no political candidate has…

Who’s afraid of the Arab Street? Part 2

Roger Cohen of The NY Times was one of the worst cheerleaders of the Islamist takeover of Egypt. On February 3, 2011, Cohen already was framing concerns about Islamist influence in the revolution as a right-wing and Israeli distraction: Already we hear the predictable warnings from Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu: This could…

The Chinese (allegedly) have a curse: May you live in interesting times. These are interesting times. It is hard to overstate the significance of what it means when the free exercise of our First Amendment rights while not breaking any laws leads to this: A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming…

Posted by

Both of these movies were released on July 13 of this year. A few months ago, I wrote about how at first glance, “The Obama Effect” appeared to be some kind of parody video. Sadly (for Obama supporters), it was a very real, but fruitless, attempt to recapture some of the 2008…

California pitching Hollywood for sitcoms, reality shows to sell Obamacare

Posted by

There are times it seems overwhelming how corrupted various aspects of society have become in the effort to impose Obamacare on the country. Hollywood is being pitched by the ad agency hired by California to promote its Obamacare health exchanges to promote Obamacare through sitcoms, reality shows and the equivalent of product placement. Instead…

Fantasy v. Reality

Posted by
9/14/2012 at 9:45pm
There has been a complete lack of reality this week in our government and media. Words are not deeds.  This is especially important to remember if you’re the President of the United States who has essentially talked himself into office. Behold a paragraph from President Obama’s stirring acceptance speech at the convention:  The historic…
