Black Lives Matter Pigs in a blanket

A few years ago, liberals in politics and media insisted that rhetoric coming from the Tea Party was violent and that we needed a new tone in political discourse. Now that #BlackLivesMatter activists are openly advocating violence, those folks are nowhere to be found.

The murder of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth in Texas, sent shock waves around that community and around the police community at large due to the senseless nature of the crime. Goforth was merely filling his cruiser up with gas when Shannon Miles (allegedly) came up behind Goforth, shot in...

Supreme Court Justices 2010

The effort by liberal media to delegitimize Clarence Thomas as a powerful legal scholar is not new.

From his confirmation hearings through to the present, Thomas has endured relentless denigration of his intellect in places like The NY Times.

Yesterday brought a stark example.

Hamas Ceasefire

This is the 6th in our look back at the summer 2014 Gaza conflict.

On August 26, 2014, the active Gaza fighting stopped with agreement on a ceasefire. How long that lasts is anyone’s guess. Hamas is bragging that it has rebuilt tunnels leading into Israel and its rocket stockpiles and production.

A few months ago Gawker staffers successfully formed an employee union. Why? Because they wanted a union. Yes really, that’s the only reason.

Whether the move spooked other prominent trash click sites or because their own employees were mumbling uniony things is unclear, but both Upworthy and Buzzfeed have discouraged their employees...
