It has taken five days for authorities to get around to decontaminating the apartment of Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan.
Five days with a level four hot bioagent alive and well in a crowded apartment complex.
And when they finally got to it they hired a…Continue
A Ferguson police officer was shot in the arm Saturday night by two armed men when he tried to question their prowling at a closed recreation center.
]According to this story:
"St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a media briefing early today that the officer approached…
The U.S. government has not just been equipping police with military weaponry; they've been supplying such weapons to colleges as well. According to The Chronicles of Higher Education:
"Should the campus police at the University of Central Florida ever need a modified grenade launcher, one sits waiting in the department’s armory. Retooled to fire tear-gas…
One of the things I find so offensive about this Michael Brown story is the rank hypocrisy among so many who are covering this. Take the two journalists who were arrested the other day; they were furious over <a href=http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/13/huffington-post-reporter-arrested-ferguson_n_5676829.htm>being arrested after the officer asked them to leave</a> the McDonalds they were camping out in repeatedly. Strange; Washington Post journalist…Continue
Does anybody remember the novel Bonfire of the Vanities? In that 1987 novel by Tom Wolfe a "master of the universe" junk bond trader accidentally gets off the highway in "the hood" and runs over a black thug (among some thugs trying to get him to stop his car so that he could be robbed). Civil Rights activists - eager for the publicity their "struggle for justice" would bring - jump on this case, and the media runs with it (claiming the kid was an honor student…
There is much discussion these days of why the Media and liberals in general are so anti-Israel. It should be obvious to any casual but attentive observer that the media has a bias in favor of the Muslims and in opposition to Israel. Stories about the Gaza war have headlines like "Israel Resumes Gaza Strikes After Cease-Fire Lull - ABC News" or "Israel Resumes Gaza Strikes After Cease-Fire Lull - ABC News" or BBC News - Gaza conflict: UN accuses Israel over Jabaliya…
Charles Krauthammer has a first-rate mind; of that there can be no dispute. But the good doctor has been around Washington too long and perhaps has lost that capacity for original thinking that marks truly great thinkers.
One example of this was his inability to grasp who Obama was until after the Immaculation; Dr. Krauthammer admits it was several weeks into the Obama Presidency before he realized Obama was really a socialist. This prompted gasps of shock…
It appears that Thad Cochran, geriatric GOP senator from Mississippi and the newly crowned king of unam from a whole heaping pile of e pluribus, may have cheated his way to the throne.
According to the Clarion…Continue
Joe Biden, the Captain Peachfuzz of the current Jay Ward Administration, has repeated the claim that one in five college girls will be raped before they finish their academic careers. Peachfuzz, er, Biden was taking his cue from the feminists, who were themselves taking their shrieking points from a lone study…Continue
Recent attempts by liberals in the media to characterize outrage at Benghazi - where a U.S. Ambassador was murdered along with three other Americans in a night long siege by terrorists, and with Obama AWOL and his staff watching the events unfold like moviegoers at the opening of the next "Die Hard" - have continually portrayed conservative anger as somehow fake, a political charade. But what is this?…Continue
The internet has been buzzing for the last few days with hysterical hypocrisy from the Left over some remarks made by Clive Bundy, the Nevada Rancher who recently staved off a paramilitary assault by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Bundy made a comment that perhaps black people were better off slaves (as opposed to the neo-slavery of benevolent government.) He was roundly thrashed for his remarks.
First, this is textbook; Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals…Continue
The Environmental Protection Agency is full of dirty tricks. Under the Obama Administration (and the tutelage of first Sheila Jackson and now "tailgunner" Gina McCarthy (Are you now or have you ever been a member of Koch Industries?) the EPA has spiraled out of control, …
The Customer is Always Right - Except where Healthcare is Concerned
The Invisible Hand, Adam Smith called it. A free market, one truly free, presupposes no judgment upon the collective actions of the participants, since that market will necessarily discipline those who overstep their moral boundaries. Smith understood that the Market is actually an expression of Natural Law, and as such comes from God, and is not merely a construct of Man. The construct of…
