Jeb Bush

I must’ve missed the “everyone make stuff up” memo circulating through media channels this week. Thankfully, I’m just a blogger.

Tuesday, the Huffington Post published a post with the headline, Jeb Bush In 1995: Unwed Mothers Should Be Publicly Shamed. There’s just one problem though — that’s not what Jeb Bush...

Marco Rubio Announcement and Family

Last week, the New York Times dropped the lamest “hit” piece in the history of hit pieces. Pretending a few traffic tickets from the 90s made Sen. Rubio and his wife unfit for public service, the NYT ended up the butt of the joke.

On social media, #rubiocrimespree trending nationally for...

The New York Times yesterday featured an article on Hillary Clinton’s electoral strategy for 2016. In short, she apparently is mimicking President Barack Obama’s strategy for his second term.

Instead, she is poised to retrace Barack Obama’s far narrower path to the presidency: a campaign focused more on mobilizing supporters in the...

Featured Victim Armed

One of the dominant theories of our time is that police officers are waging a Terminator-like war against unarmed young black men, killing them with a ruthlessness and determination evocative of a genocide, all the while escaping legal sanction.

That was a line from a speech Hillary Clinton recently delivered for a gathering of the pro-abortion PAC, EMILY’s List. It was delivered with all of the warmth and charm we’ve come to expect from the former Secretary...

Whether one believes in God or not, whenever natural disasters strike and deaths are involved, people often ask, “Why?”.  They ask:  “Why did this happen?”; “Why did this have to happen now?”; and sadly, “Why did ________ have to die?”

The worst response is when somebody tries to politicize such tragedies, especially...

I don’t suppose it will ever end–the mainstream media will continue to cover trials involving deadly force, will continue to blindly label them Stand-Your-Ground cases, and will continue to demonstrate its utter ignorance of what Stand-Your-Ground actually is.
