I don’t normally use campaign material for posts, but this grouping of videos circulated by CARLY for America, the SuperPAC supporting her, saved me a ton of work since I was going…

Yesterday a Texas teenager, who happens to be a Muslim, brought a homemade clock to school and was arrested because the clock was mistaken for a bomb. Some people are blaming racism but zero tolerance policies are the real problem. NBC News reports that he won’t be charged: No Charges For Ahmed Mohamed,…

It was a night when Ted Cruz referred to this A.F.

Jeremy Corbyn is the radical leftist anti-Israel British politican with very shady associations who recently was elected leader of the Labour Party. The Conservative Party, which last spring won a resounding victory, was celebrating because Corbyn is deemed unelectable at the top of the Labour Party ticket in a General Election.

George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a dystopian masterpiece. Part of the book’s genius lies in its nomenclature, and most definitely its insight into the political propaganda process. Thus, the Ministry of Truth, or “Minitrue” for short: As with the other Ministries in the novel, the Ministry of Truth is a misnomer and…

Ted Cruz just released an ad warning of a Scorpion in the Desert. The identity of the Scorpion is not mentioned. But it’s obvious. The ad is very similar to Ronald Reagan’s successful Bear in the Woods ad: Reagan never mentioned the identity of the bear. He didn’t have to.

Palestinians are among the largest recipients of international aid, per capita, in the world. Yet all we hear about is U.S. aid to Israel, which is entirely military and most of which comes back to U.S. companies because it is required to be spent on U.S.-made equipment. International aid to Palestinians doesn’t come…
