When scanning the spectrum of President Obama’s presidency, it’s difficult to find anything that he does with any kind of competence or skill. That said, when it comes to erecting straw man arguments, it’s hard to find an equal to President Obama. As demonstrated before, Obama routinely engages in this practice by…

Whoever would have guessed that trade policy could turn into the US Senate’s latest stumbling block?

Elizabeth Warren had a reputation in academia as a climber with sharp elbows, said New York Magazine in 2011 (“A Saint with Sharp Elbows), and The Boston Globe in 2012: Behind the scenes, some of her peers bristled at her ascent, viewing her as smart and capable but also as a climber…

Obama Still Obsessed With FOX News

“We’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”

Obama Still Obsessed With FOX News

Posted by
5/13/2015 at 10:00am
Obama’s obsession with FOX News is well documented. In 2009, shortly after being sworn in as president, his administration said FOX wasn’t a real news network and accused FOX News of being a wing of the Republican Party. It doesn’t matter to Obama that he’s received the most fawning media coverage of…

OK folks, just a hit-and-run post here on the Zimmerman/Apperson kerfuffle.

I love the Equal Pay debate. It’s one of the simplest tests of political acumen. Caleb Bonham decided to chat it up with a few Hillary supporters who love Mrs. Clinton because she’s, “doing a great job fighting for what should have happened a long time ago.” “What should’ve happened a…

Why can’t boys just be boys anymore?

Posted by
5/12/2015 at 7:00pm
Forget the fictitious but politically expedient ‘War on Women,’ masculinity is under attack. Men are maligned for not being more feminine in quality and character, and little boys are expected to forsake their natural curiosity, fervor, and active nature so as not to offend anyone with their rambunctiousness. The compulsion to…

We first wrote about the shooting of Tony Robinson (black) by Police Officer Matt Kenny (white) way back in March of this year. Back then our angle on the story was to shine the light of reality on the increasingly popular meme of “white cop shoots unarmed young black man for no damn good reason”…

One of the things about Iran that isn’t generally understood is that its population is at least 40% ethnic minorities. There are Kurds, Ahwazi Arabs, Azeris and Baluchis for example. And of course there are religious minorities, Jews, Sunnis, Christians and Bahai, who also are persecuted. So what happens when one of…
