This is what happens when progressives write law

Snowboarders. Yes, you read that right. Are snowboard instructors key to American immigration policy? Well, they're important enough to be specifically included in the Senate bipartisan Gang of Eight immigration reform bill. How did that happen? The original 844-page Gang of Eight bill, released in mid-April, granted a break to certain foreigners who come to […]

A badge of honor

Senator Reid calls Senator Ted Cruz a "schoolyard bully." If, as was reported last week, he might run for the White House in 2016, is he a Ronald Reagan whose adamant conservative principles will confound the naysayers, attract voters and lead his party to national victory? Or is he a Barry Goldwater, whose conservatism was […]

‘The most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years’

Who said that? James Carville. About whom? Ted Cruz. "I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I've seen in the last 30 years. I further think that he’s going to run for president and he is going to create something. I’m not sitting here saying he’s going to win, and I think Senator […]

A complete package of evil

The DiploMad writes another winner: Words evolve. They take on new meaning over the years. Social and political movements appropriate certain words, redefine them, and then use them to shape the ideological battlefield. The classic example of that, of course, is "bolshevik" and "menshevik." The Bolsheviks were, in fact, the Mensheviks and vice-versa. The word […]

Larry Correia gets hate mail…

And unvarnished truth ensues. I got this little gem this morning, and figured that it needed to be shared, rather than just be ignored in the comments. This if from Lynne. I don’t like left wingers, right wingers, or moderates. I love guns, adventures, etc – and I just finished Monster Hunter Vendetta, and tho […]

What am I doing?

Waiting for Mrs. Pitbull's world famous picadillo while listening to the Rolling Stones.

Irony alert

What is the irony of the first black president praising -- no, 'blessing' -- an organization that was founded by a woman -- admired by Adolf Hitler -- that wanted as many black babies aborted to purify the gene pool. Somewhere in her palatial estate in Hell, Margaret Sanger is doing a Snoopy Dance... [...] Please take […]

The doctrine of acceptable lies

In this superb essay titled "Taqiyya and the Father of Lies," Gates of Vienna takes us on a tour of how Taqiyya has become the norm in the West among, you guessed it, the left... [...] In 1966 I flew from London to Singapore. I walked to the barrier with my parents, showed the tickets, walked […]

Why ‘The Great Crime’ still matters today

Raymond Ibrahim on the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide: Today, April 24, marks the “Great Crime,” that is, the Armenian genocide that took place under Turkey’s Islamic Ottoman Empire, during and after WWI.  Out of an approximate population of two million, some 1.5 million Armenians died. If early 20th century Turkey had the apparatuses and technology […]

Liberal utopia fall down go boom

From The American Spectator, if you read one thing today, read "Jihad Blows Up the Liberal Utopia." Jihad has blown up The Liberal Utopia. The visionary liberal land of political and social perfection. President Obama is not happy — and he isn’t alone. You know the place. The Liberal Utopia is a land where gun background […]

A logical conclusion

This may finally explain the preponderance of liberals in California... Las Vegas Hospital Accused of Dumping Psychiatric Patients in California Health officials in Las Vegas are accusing of shipping patients on Greyhound buses with one-way tickets to California. LA's downtown Greyhound bus depot may have been one of several California entry points for countless psychiatric […]

Earth Day, Shmearth Day

The great Stevie J West expounds on the real celebration going on today -- hint: it ain't about the Earth: Happy “We’re really celebrating the birthday of one of our leftist heroes, Lenin, in addition to the eco-tyranny we’re pushing, but we don’t want to advertise our love of the Bolsheviks to the aggressively ignorant […]

More on the Boston Bombers from Hansen and Hinderaker

Two excellent dissections about the inability of many to come to grips with the reality of Islamism in our society. First, Victor Davis Hansen: "The Paradoxes of the Boston Bombings": A certain American (or for that matter Westernized) resident or citizen — usually male, almost always young, born a Muslim, prone to guilt over temporary […]

The brothers were not acting alone

The Religion of Peace, once again, sets its sights on us. The FBI is hunting a 12-man terrorist "sleeper cell" linked to the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings. The Bureau believes that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received training in bomb-making before they carried out the attack, which killed three people. Tamerlan, 26, […]
