    The world is filled with frauds; for instance, there’s NPR’s “Dr.” Science who, it turns out, is not a doctor and doesn’t know very much about science either: Ask Dr. Science is a daily broadcast on many public radio stations, using a format that mixes elements of a commercial bumper and a public service announcement. A concerned citizen asks a question, which is answered by an expert, "Dr. Science." Not surprisingly, the questions are never answered correctly, and are often little more than a launching point for a non sequitur monologue from Dr. Science. The show's motto is "He knows...

    As it turns out the classified information contained in Hilz emails is not even the good part; it’s the non-classified emails that are more entertaining:From “Instructions for the Help” email: the obligatory “Happy New Year, little people,” followed by assignments -  menu planning, skim milk, Human Rights Watch report, air time for Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife.

    There’s a lot of other stuff going on in the world, butt for some reason I can’t seem to move on from this  gender/pronoun/identity issue. Once I discovered it’s a real thing, I became mesmerized. No longer constrained to he/she/it, you now have at least 182 (and counting) pronouns to choose from, in 6 different categories (see below). So if you think you’ve negotiated the waters of the whole gender pronoun issue just because you’ve nailed the proper grammatical construct of the gender neutral “xe,”well, let’s just say it’s a little early to be patting zemself on the back.And that’s...

It’s hard to understand how his poll numbers keep going up when he’s so unpopular. It’s probably something like the Yogi Berra phenomenon, “Nobody goes there anymore.

Especially outsiders who come to rape and plunder (with apologies to those of Viking stock who practically invented raping and plundering, butt haven’t engaged in that sort of behavior for thousands of years now).  Even Swedes seem to have their limits: (highlights added) Sweden’s nationalists lead polls for first time.

She claimed no knowledge of what is, was, or should be classified; and demurred that the complexities of government security clearance was beyond her ken. It’s as if she was a helpless little girl faced with a big bad math problem too tough for a little girl to solve, or something. Employing the old anti-feminist “dust rag” defense she deflected the entire controversy by metaphorically flicking it off. Hands up! Don’t Shoot! (take 2) And then...

    Sure smells like school spirit: High School Madness:  Firesign Theatre  Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) files a motion to oust House Speaker John Boehner: Mr. Meadows, North Carolina Republican, filed a motion to “vacate the chair,” which could force a no-confidence vote by the full chamber and result in the removal of Mr. Boehner as speaker. In the resolution, Mr. Meadows says Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.” He also says the speaker has limited debate, pushed legislation to the brink...

    Big Guy filled out his brackets ages ago, have you? It’s time to get started on the  GOP Presidential Nomination brackets since we have only a year before the Republican Convention, and we now have a “Sweet 16” grouping. I know FOX is only dealing with 10 candidates, butt what do you prefer – a  “Zen 10” or a “Sweet 16”? That’s what I thought.Here’s the way it works: I generated my bracket matchups by starting with the results of the ABC/WaPo poll conducted July 16-19 which I  then modified by using Chicago Rules – or as the lawyers put...

    Upon arrival in the land of the Dreams From His Father, Barry was greeted by his half-sister, Auma Obama.Man, Big Guy’s got more half-siblings than the Kardashians! And frankly, there’s a chance he may be related to them too. I mean, check out that butt on Auma; we are definitely looking at Kardashian sized upholstery.While being whined and dined in Kenya, Barry launched the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Nairobi, telling the audience that Africa is on the move: He said young African entrepreneurs are the continent’s future, but cautioned that governments cannot allow small would-be businesspeople to be stymied by...

    From the fine mind of Trey Gowdy, "The president said that … in Trayvon Martin he saw a son. I can tell you those of us who have daughters saw our daughters in Kate Steinle." And the equally talented Big Fur Hat at iOTW, we have this “We’ll Claim Kate” memorial.And now, because it’s the weekend, and because we all deserve a break, let’s make this recipe weekend (and remember, every time a recipe is posted an angel gets his wings).Chrusciki, aka Angel’s Wings Or at least they get a drink:An old fashioned Angel’s tip, perhaps?Angel's Tip 3/4 oz dark creme...

    Today’s post comes compliments of Mark Steyn, writing about one of the greatest come-backs in musical history: According to Scott Fitzgerald, there are no second acts in American lives. Which isn't true. But there are few second acts like Frank Sinatra's…the man who had lost his fans, lost his voice, lost his agent, lost his movie contract, lost his TV show and lost his record label is back at the microphone. He takes his time, colla voce, and declares himself: I've Got The World On A String Sittin' on a rainbow Got the string around my fi-i-i-inger... As Mr. Steyn...

    On this day in history - July 23, 2015:  On this date in 2015, The Obama began what would be hailed as the final phase of his fundamental transformation of Amerika. Without as much as a peep from the “loyal opposition” The Obama advanced his assault on the Constitution by continuing to write his own laws and treaties and by re-writing existing immigration law in his own image and likeness. It was a bloodless coup, directed by his long-term consigliere “Got that Barry?” “Yes Mommy.”and executed with nothing more than this pen and and his phone - again, thanks in...

    Woman: "Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!" Churchill: "Madam, we've already established that. Now we are just haggling about the price” I sincerely hope this will be my last entry in the “Planned Parenthood” stealth video gallery because frankly I don’t know how much more you – or I - need to know about “less crunchy” harvesting techniques of “undifferentiated fetal tissue.” (Although I will note that - if the price is right – it would appear that “fetal tissue” can indeed be differentiated.) Human fetuses: apparently valuable only to the baby body snatchersI...

    You can’t blame people for demanding an apology from The Donald for his stupid shoot-from-the-lip comment. After all, groveling has become our default position ever since our Commander-in-Chief turned Apologizing for America into the country’s favorite pastime.In Obama’s Amerika everybody and their grandmother apologizes at the drop of a hat for everything and anything that anyone might conceivably take offense at: sexism, homophobia, transgender insensitivity, Islamophobia, “cultural appropriation,” white privilege…or simply for putting cream in your coffee.I see racism, cultural appropriation, and white privilege: what do you see?Butt with The Donald this is the closest you’re going to get to...

    Now that the FemiNazis have bullied* men into buying their crap; what could go wrong?Ah yes, feminism: it’s come to this, oh yes it has: As I write this, my children are asleep in their room, Loretta Lynn is on the stereo, and my wife is out on a date with a man named Paulo. It’s her second date this week; her fourth this month so far. If it goes like the others, she’ll come home in the middle of the night, crawl into bed beside me, and tell me all about how she and Paulo had sex. I won’t...

    Netroots Nation convened in Phoenix this weekend and it was such a target rich environment that even the Instapundit couldn’t even up. The incoming Twitter gems from Netroots 2015 were just too prolific for anyone to capture all of the good ones.As always, Netroots was concerned with all things progressive from: Bees (#BeeLivesMatter) to Racism (#BlackLivesMatterWhiteLivesNotSoMuch). Which led Martin O’Mally to apologize for his audacious assertion that “white lives matter” too.  “That was a mistake on my part.”Finally, the congregation settled on Netroot’s main theme this year: white peoples’ failure to talk enough about – what else? – race. Many...

    I heard that Huffpo will no longer be covering the Donald’s campaign as news: After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette. Following their lead I will...

    I see you’re conflicted on this Mr. President, so let me be perfectly clear:Muhammad was not a “lone gunman.” He was a jihadi; an agent of the Islamic State, our sworn enemy despite your hesitancy to reciprocate – or even participate.Nor was Muhammad even a terrorist – domestic or otherwise. Because prior to the age of deconstruction (i.e. B.O.) - when words still had meaning - terrorism was defined as “the use of violence or the threat of violence against civilians, in the pursuit of political goals.” Attacking a military target was considered an act of war. All that gets fuzzier...

    Just last week, in reference to the abandonment of first principles, we were reminded by Mark Steyn: The trick of civilizational self-preservation is to spot this stuff when it's just small things and stop it at the itsy-bitsy stage. It's never one thing that is unlike the other, two opposing corners of civilization and barbarism, an express train rocketing from one to the other. It's always a continuum. Since several of you have posted the now infamous video of Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussing the sale of, uh, “undifferentiated tissue mass” I will not do so again. Butt I will point...
