White Reporter Contends Dark–Skinned People Can’t Control Themselves

reagan-crime-sentences

Samantha Sunne had an authentically gritty New York City experience during a recent visit. She “spent four hours curled in a ball, balancing on a narrow wooden bench…trying to avoid the freezing cinderblock walls and the cold cement floor, splattered with cigarette butts and rotten food.” This is just the kind of first–hand experience writers used to crave, but Sunne ...

Missing the Connection Between Politicians and Consequences

diapers-term-limits

Today we have two widely separated instances of voters unable to grasp the connection between the people they elect to office and the policies and taxes that make them angry. In Montgomery County, MD — a bastion of Democrat Leftist compassion and social justice — incumbent members of the county council are contributing funds from their campaign accounts to defeat ...

Republican Party Now Controlled by Depend Caucus

ryan-good-bad-stupid-678x381

For a guy who’s billed as the next great Republican political wizard, he sure makes a lot of rookie mistakes. No, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Speaker of the House Paul Ryan — the Hamlet of Pennsylvania Avenue. Now Ryan is doing the Hokey–Pokey over Trump’s just–released video “How to Impress Women Like the Stars Do.” ...

Obama Insults the Bereaved in Dallas

Obama lights fuse

It takes a special kind of president to travel to Dallas, ostensibly to speak at a memorial service for five assassinated police officers, and instead deliver a Black Lives Matter convention speech. A president completely oblivious to the purpose of the occasion and what decency requires. Obama delivered a speech the Daily Caller said was almost entirely his composition, so ...

Comey & FBI Blink After Email Investigation

Hillary Rodham Nixon

FBI Director James Comey’s news conference on the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton investigation reminded me of another staged media event in a hostile environment almost 50 years ago. During the Vietnam War Commander Jeremiah Denton had been shot down on a bombing raid and was being held in a Hanoi prison camp. In May 1967 Denton was marched out ...

Great White Leftists Know What’s Best for Red Man

Redskins potato helmet

A handful of activists using “civil rights” as justification convince leftist reporters and publicity–hungry Democrats to support a cause that until recently was not a concern to anyone who didn’t subscribe to Mother Jones magazine. Carrying enough victim cards to fill a six–deck Blackjack shoe, they approach an unelected regulatory body and convinced the commissars to overturn the Constitution and ...

Trump Incoherence Spreads to Pro–Life Supporters

Pro-Life-3-being-pro-life-5715537-460-527

It’s rare to discover an individual in public life whose verbal gaffes are so contagious they spread to the normally circumspect, but Donald Trump has that effect on people. Trump was giving one of his let–it–all–hang–out interviews during a townhall conducted by Chris Matthews. Poised like a drunken Wallenda, Trump teetered from question to question. This time the slip was ...

A Leftist and Her Money Are Soon Parted

Instead-of-going-to-Starbucks---lol

San Francisco leftists have once again decided to inflict another socialist utopia on an unsuspecting South American nation. What’s more, just like at Jonestown, a popular liquid is playing a prominent role. This time instead of a male heretic imposing a fanatical religion, we have two women, Helen Russell and Brooke McDonnell, doing orthodox socialist missionary work. The ladies are ...

The Typo that Bloated a Nation

stupid-fat-people_o_689465

For decades Americans have been laboring under a misconception that has fueled the growth of Jenny Craig, stretched spandex to the limit and turned people–watching at the mall into a vaguely unsettling experience. Mothers, teachers and motorcycle cops have been lecturing us for years that “haste makes waste.” Meaning rushing through a project, test or municipal speed trap can result ...

Bob McDonnell Gives Ingratitude a Bad Name

The Bob & Maureen McDonnell corruption trial is not proving to be the unmitigated disaster for the McDonnell family that I first assumed. As the trial continues Maureen is looking more and more like her official portrait, currently on display at the Richmond Salvation Army Store. She can’t do anything about the age difference — the youngster in Maureen’s “First ...

Peer Pressure Crushes Silicon Valley Entrepreneur

Anne Wojcicki is one of those Silicon Valley entrepreneurs that started a “disruptive” company aiming to change how we view an established industry. But she’s not one of those brain–rich, resource–poor visionaries passing the hat among bored World of Warcraft players window–shopping on Kickstarter.com. No, she and her partners, Lucy Page and Laura Arrillaga–Andreessen — respectively the wives of Internet ...

No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker.

It’s 9AM late July and already the day is shot to hell. The temperature is over 80 and the humidity would wilt a Puritan’s collar. You’re supposed to be taking Migra, your Mexican Water Spaniel, on a 400–hundred-mile car trip. The dog’s 14–years–old if he’s a day, and who knows if he’ll live long enough to be reunited with the ...

Government Motors & Close Enough for Government Work

Times have been tough at Government Motors. For a while there it looked like both Osama and GM were going to be dead after encountering the Obama regime. Just recently GM announced the recall of 8,200,000 vehicles over problems with faulty ignition switches. When added to earlier North American recalls, the total for 2014 is an astounding 29,000,000 cars and ...

The Call of the RINO in Virginia and Mississippi

It would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical. ‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle to get things done. While we ...

Only Obama Staffers Believe IRS ‘Lost’ Email

If you’ve been skeptical about the IRS’ explanation that Lois Lerner’s email disappeared during a World of Warcraft online game that got out of control, I have good news. Particularly since you’ve also probably been a little reluctant to express that thought. No one wants to be called a racist in the latte line at Starbucks while you–know–who is in ...
