His Pledge Of Allegiance Is Ruled By Expedience

Embedded image permalink

I've been wavering back and forth on whether the GOP's support for giving the President what he's asked for in terms of his AUMF to manage that JV team, now known as ISIS, is the right or wrong thing to do. In the end, and I know this will anger half of you out there, I'm going to say that John Boehner, as much as I don't like admitting that he got something right, got this one right. It's not a simple question, and it did take me a while to arrive here, but in the end,…

Saturday At The Movies: Mark Steyn And The End Of Europe

Here's an alternative to an hour's worth of network television this weekend. It's a couple of years old, but still holds relevancy to today's world. It's Mark Steyn's speech to the Heritage Foundation from Late April, 2012. He makes a couple of strong points, not the least of which echoes something I've been saying for years. He drives home the point that we fail to see, which is that the borders we've imposed upon many of the Muslim Nations during the early part of the last century means…

Today's Lesson On The Power Of The Free Market, Brought To You By A Former Socialist Nation.

Pay close attention to this interview, as Jack Ma espouses his business philosophy and attributes his success to those concepts repeatedly taught by Adam Smith, Frederic Bastiat, F.A. Hayek, Ludwig Von Mises, Milton Friedman, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and countless others.

For my friends at Tea Party Nation, you can see the video by following the link at the bottom of this post back to my site. Sorry for the inconvenience.

He created something that other people…

Behold The, "Moderate Muslim."

UC San Diego holds a week long festival of Jew Hatred every year, lovingly called, "Israel Apartheid Week." The Muslim Student Association, one of the groups officially listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Terror Funding Case and subsequent trial, and was proven in that same document to be a member constituency of the Muslim Brotherhood, hosts the event every year. The entire purpose of the event is to whip up Antisemitism amongst…

My How Times Have Changed.

Embedded image permalink

On July 24, 1959, Richard Nixon, then Vice President of the United States of America, met with Nikita Khrushchev, then the Soviet Head of State, in an exhibition presented in Moscow of America's economic accomplishment. A replica of a house was built as a part of the exhibit, ostensibly showing what an American of moderate means could afford for himself in terms of housing and various consumer products. The two leaders had an impromptu debate in the kitchen of the house,…

The Permanently Aggrieved

Embedded image permalink

Welcome to 2014, a year in which being aggrieved on behalf of someone else has become a multi Billion Dollar cottage industry. Buckets of cash are waiting to be raked in by liberals self appointing themselves to speak out on behalf of a group who they feel should be upset about something. The something is not all that important. In fact, the more trivial the better, since defending trivial matters is damned near impossible.

There's nothing more…

Debunking 911 Conspiracy Lunacy

Thirteen years ago today, I opened my store at 8:00 am, as my usual routine dictated. Tuesday September 11, 2001 was a beautiful day, clear blue skies, warm, and perfect. My first employees were scheduled to come in at 9:00. Typically, on Tuesdays, I would have anywhere from 15 to 20 members of the Arabic community who had recently moved into my Short West Side neighborhood, come into my store in order to purchase in bulk, the supplies that they'd turn around and sell in their convenience…

Holy Jaw Dropping Stupidity Bat Man, These People Actually Believe This.

Political Cartoons by Lisa Benson

Words fail me now, after having read this, so I'll just link to it instead. For those who missed the basic premise, failed to see it through to the end, and I'll admit that it took me a few sit downs, I'll give a summation. Since the Stimulus Program, and the ensuing Quantitative Easing, as massive as they were, (meaning the largest in human history,)…

It's All About The Messaging: What If Reagan Passed Obamacare?

Photo: Yes, Republicans are STILL talking about more "repeal" votes. Tell them ENOUGH ALREADY:</p> <p><a href=" />

I saw the above picture in that bad news feed known as Facebook. I guess, purely for the purposes of a good laugh, that I'll play along. I believe that this theory has two possible lines of sophomoric thought attached to it. One, that it is the name Obamacare, and not the concept of a government take over of our entire health care delivery system that people are upset about.…

Obama Tackled For A Loss, Celebrates By Spiking The Economic Football.

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

As the professional thugs who spend their days organizing for the destruction of America waste yet another precious block of time, trying to force yet another nationalized dose of economic arsenic down the collective throat of the public, we've been blessed to witness yet another miracle of yet another recovery summer. $15 per hour or bust, that's the arbitrary line du jour between survival and not being able to afford the government approved food pellets without…

The Great Chicken Hawk Ad Hominem: Rule Twelve From The Alinsky List

Once again, we'll start this one with a definition from the Webster Dictionary.

Ad Hominem -



appealing to one's prejudices, emotions, or special interests rather than to one's intellect or reason.


attacking an opponent's character rather than answering his argument.

The second piece of reference I'd like to use as a preface would be rule 12 from Saul Alinsky's, "Rules For Radicals," which is the official play…

Is Outsourcing Our Foreign Policy To The UN Smart Diplomacy?

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

“We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem, and the question is going to be making sure we’ve got the right strategy but also making sure we’ve got the international will to do it.”

-Barack Hussein Obama - September 2, 2014

I was going to do something today…

How Are ISIS And Global Warming Connected?

Political Cartoons by Gary McCoy

As this is happening, in real time all around the globe, our President has made it a point to appear as if he hasn't a worry in the world. In fact, he gave a speech to the American Legion last week in which he told the largest organization of retired former members of the military that in his view, America has never been more capable of…

Do They Even Teach Journalism In Journalism School Anymore?

Hat Tip to Guggi:

I was directed to an article which ran in today's Washington Post. After reading the article, and then the source material used as the basis for argument, I was forced to ask this question, do professional journalists have even a passing interest in the facts pertinent to the subjects on which they are reporting?

Here's the headline of the offending…

Cryptozoologists Spot Conservative Democrat In Georgia!

Well, as Cryptozoologists from all over the nation flock to Georgia with the latest sighting of a mythical beast known as a Conservative Democrat, we must all face the realization that we knew that Georgia would at some point in time be the location for such. In this particular instance, the make believe creature, a female, poked her head out of her hiding place and took stock of the political winds. Having done that, she announced that she'd be an independent voice that wouldn't simply fall…

Yeah, Turns Out Those Emails Aren't Missing After All.

I would call this a prediction come true, except it wasn't exactly born of psychic ability. Not believing at all in psychic ability, I must also state that it did not even involve a trick of any sort. All it took to see through this bit of attempted chicanery was the smallest bit of high school statistical analysis taught as a part of my pre calculus junior year math curricula. In other words, about 2 seconds of thought, and I could tell that all players involved were lying.

For the…

Another Day, Another Major US Corporation Getting Out Of Dodge.

US-Canada corporate tax rates

Well, here's another one from the, "see, I told you so," page. It would seem as though Burger King has declared itself to be the latest US company to announce intentions of leaving our land for lower tax burdened shores. What's striking about this particular company ditching the Bamster's lets-soak-the-rich path to restore American glory of course, is that…

Want To Know What Causes Islamophobia? Islam Causes Islamophobia!

As a public service announcement, and because I haven't done it in a year, I'd just like to remind everyone that when you see this bumper sticker on an automobile,

Get your camera out and contemplate asking the vehicle's driver for an autograph. You're in the presence of museum grade stupidity.

Now, on to my point.…

The Real Question In Texas: Why Did It Take Rick Perry Fourteen Years To Shut This Down?

Political Cartoons by Chip Bok

There exists in Texas, something of a bizarre situation in regards to the state politics. What happened, several decades ago, when the Democrats ran the place, was that the Austin County Prosecutor's Office became vested somehow with a state authority to prosecute politicians for various infractions. The Travis County District Attorney's Office is partially funded with revenues collected from the entire state, and they act as a, "watchdog," group for all of Texas. As far as…

Ferguson Proves One Thing, It's Not Open Season On Black Youths, No Matter How Hard That Narrative Is Pushed.

Political Cartoons by Dana Summers

As Ferguson consumes the new normal in terms of news cycles, one crisis dominating a two week period of time, wiping the continuing crises from our collective consciousness, (remember, the border crisis, Gaza, Ukraine, and Isis are all still out there,) some things have struck me over the last few evenings of riotous stupidity. One, I'd like to formally welcome the strange and logic defying anarchist/communist alliance to the mix. You'll remember this group of fun loving…
