Posted by
1/2/2015 at 2:30pm
Despite widespread media and social media claims that the North Koreans were not behind the Sony hack, the U.S. government stands by the assertion that North Korea is the culprit. Obama signed an executive Order today imposing sanctions, as The Washington Post reports: President Obama, while vacationing in Hawaii, signed an executive order…

In a move to “make lives easier,” California has initiated a driver’s license program for immigrants who are in the country illegally.

Combat comes to US troops in Iraq

U.S. troops’ boots may not “be on the ground” in the sense of the popular wartime narrative, but Islamic State insurgents are getting awfully close to where those boots are stationed. From the Washington Post: In Iraq’s western Anbar province, more than 300 U.S. troops are posted at a base in the…

My family was set to see the snow in the local mountains today, until we discovered thousands of fellow Californians decided they were going to check out this novelty as well. Interstate 8 east ground to a halt, the mountain town of Julian became completely gridlocked in traffic — and access to…

Liberals Waste no Time Pushing Gun Control in 2015

Liberals Waste no Time Pushing Gun Control in 2015

Posted by
1/2/2015 at 7:00am
The ink on 2015 is barely dry, but that hasn’t stopped liberals from continuing their push for increased gun control. Seizing on the still-raw emotions of the shooting at Sandy Hook, Adam Gopnik of The New Yorker outlined what he calls their “moral work”: The Newtown Lawsuit and the Moral Work of Gun…

5-year-old’s take on Princess Leia’s metal bikini would make feminists fume

5-year-old’s take on Princess Leia’s metal bikini would make feminists fume

Posted by

Adorably hilarious, this father-daughter conversation fantastically illustrates how behavior is learned. Modern “feminism” scoffs at the “sexual objectification” of Princess Leia, all the while, drooling over shirtless pictures of Ryan Gosling (because somehow that’s different). Flipping through a Star Wars book, this little girl found Princess Leia’s prison garb to be quite fabulous…

The last year I remember noticing as a huge transition was 2000. We had entered science fiction territory, and 2001 was similar because of the Stanley Kubrick film. But after that it’s all been a blur. How did it pass so quickly? That’s a cliche, but there’s no question that as you…

Back in February, then-gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attempted to rock the boat by claiming that she supported Texas’ open carry movement.Her opponent Greg Abbott, an already-beloved-by-most Attorney General and popular favorite to win the election, already supported the measure, so perhaps at the time it seemed like a savvy move.

Today the New York Times, predictably, blamed Israel for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to internationalize the Palestinians conflict with Israel. According to the Times, it is Israel’s fault that Abbas attempted to get the United Nations Security Council to impose an agreement on Israel and, failing that,…

The problem with the “peace negotiations” that failed numerous times over the years is that the Palestinians cling to the hope that international organizations — primarily the United Nations and its branches — will force Israel into concessions that harm Israel’s security, and will pave the way not for a lasting…
