Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2014

“Familiarity breeds if not contempt, then frustration.”

Liberals in politics and media are placing all their eggs in Hillary’s basket for 2016 but remember: Media in 2006: Hillary Clinton is inevitable. Media in 2014: Hillary Clinton is inevitable. #FoolMeOnce— Aleister (@AmericanGlob) November 15, 2014 When it comes to presidential elections, Iowa is a very important state and as Lee Rood of the…

Should weather dictate timing of #Ferguson Grand Jury Report release?

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2014

Science! “Likelihood of a riot increases as maximum ambient temperature increases.”

There is much speculation around when the Ferguson Grand Jury is likely to finally release their (widely expected) no true bill (non-indictment) of Police Officer Darren Wilson over the shooting death of Mike Brown. A great many people, myself included, have suggested that the authorities responsible for the release of the Grand…

One of the most frequent questions I get is “How can we stop Obama from ….” The ellipses reflects that there are a variety of issues on which people want Obama stopped. The answer to most of those questions is, as Obama himself suggested, to go out and win some elections. And that is…

UAE designates CAIR a terrorist group (Update: CAIR responds)

Posted by  ▪  November 15, 2014

Will CAIR call the United Arab Emirates “Islamophobic”?

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is the hyper-aggressive group which designates almost anyone critical even of radical Islam as “Islamophobic.” CAIR has done more than any group, except perhaps the Southern Poverty Law Center, at chilling speech on topics of national and international concern. CAIR also is a key component of the Democratic…

Leave the push card, take the cannoli.

The reality of campaign politics is that there is no standard for rhetoric. You punch low, you punch high, and you start punching before you have specific people you’re tasked with punching. Some progressives, however, are jockeying for early bids to lead Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign, and are using fellow…
