Some thoughts about Gabriel Garcia-Marquez & Fidel Castro

Victor Triay, author and college professor, joins me for a chat about the Latin American left.   We will also hear from Michael Prada. We will look at the death of Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, the well known author of the Spanish language, who died in Mexico City. My concern is that Mr Garcia-Marquez is another one of […]

An update about Venezuela and Latin America

We spoke with Fausta Wertz, editor of Fausta's Blog, about the situation in Venezuela. Fausta published a new post called "The left and reality": "Lefties firmly believe the deceased Hugo Chavez “improved the economy drastically and ameliorated poverty drastically” because GDP went up, and fewer people were living below the poverty line by the time […]

“Duck Dynasty”: El dinero habla y “Abuelo Duck” ganó!

It took less than 2 weeks for A&E to crack: "The A&E channel said it’s reversing its decision to drop “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson from the show for his remarks about gays. In a statement Friday, A&E said it decided to bring Robertson back after discussions with the Robertson family and “numerous advocacy groups.” […]

“The United States government is the ultimate giant unworkable mess”

Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog puts into brilliant context exactly why government cannot do or build the things a culture with real individual incentive can build, no matter how much money the government continually throws at it... The ObamaCare website is the natural spawn of that technocracy who love the idea of using […]

Seriously, Florida? Seriously? – UPDATED

Why does Florida keep sending Alan Grayson back to Washington DC time and time again? Are the people in Grayson's congressional district really of like-mind with this unmitigated, uncivil, uncouth buffoon? Or are they just eager to get him off their streets and out of town? Here is Grayson's latest email... What a propagandistic, agent […]

Keep Ignoring This Particular Problem Until It Swims Up and Bites Us … Again

The MSM (and liberals with Twitter accounts) resorted to the typical template with last week's Washington DC Navy Yard mass murder shooting: First, get the facts completely wrong, even the person's name/identity ... Just be first with the dirt Second, continue to push the lie(s) because it fits the gun control agenda Third, barely, if […]

I Can See The “Community Organizer” From My House…

Recall in 2008 during the then presidential election campaigns how all the in-the-know Obama supporters in the democrat party and in the media were so eager to elevate the man, with little to no experience at even an actual job, to a would be indisputable level of "Community Organizer" that would trump anything a crazy […]

“Phony Scandals”

Last week, while on his continuing campaign trail, Obama complained about "phony scandals" keeping republicans in the U.S. Congress too busy to pass his economy-wrecking socialist agenda. Shortly after the unconscionable gaffe crossed the live airwaves a large percentage of Americans took a collective gasp. Exactly what is phony about the Obama administration's scandals, and […]

Because It’s Bad For Their Business

Shelby Steele squarely pokes all this hyped and manufactured outrage over the Zimmerman verdict in the eye with the cold, hard, sharp stick of truth... The Revs. Jackson and Sharpton have been consigned to a hard fate: They can never be more than redundancies, echoes of the great men they emulate because America has changed. […]

The Castros’ Extra Large Buddy is Getting Un-Hitched

Michael Moore, the sworn champion of "the 99%" and insists the rich 1% must give up most of their wealth to the state, is about to attempt to keep his soon-to-be "ex" from taking him and his 1% multi-millions to the cleaners... FLINT, MI -- Flint's best-known power couple is apparently splitting with Michael Moore […]

The Media’s Sloppy Racist Ways on Display … Again

"If there's anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, if you're out there, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me ... Please, I want to meet you." In the last week we have heard the tale of […]

Fallout: Pro-Abortion Groups Try to Smear The Gosnell Blood from Their Hands onto The Pro-Life Movement and Fail

ALERT: Kermit Gosnell agreed to forfeit his right to an appeal and will get life in prison. How long before the pro-abortion talking heads and the media start referring to the Gosnell jury as an "activist" jury? Well, that dog just won't hunt because 9 of the 12 jurors that found Kermit Gosnell guilty were […]

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 […]

Obama: “Most of The Guns Used to Commit Violence Here in Mexico Come from The United States…”

Yes, Obama, and you should have followed that with, "Eric Holder and I want you to know you're welcome very much." RCP: "Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States," President Obama said during a speech at Mexico's Anthropology Museum. "I think many of you know that […]

Abject Liberal Failures, Not Guns, Are To Blame…

Here is a list of the 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America. I am going out on a limb here, but I'm betting most (if not all) have been liberal democrat strongholds for generations. Kevin D. Williamson @ NRO explains this stark fact in great detail... The United States does not suffer from an inflated […]
