    It’s not as if this is the first time Barry has conflated terrorism with global warming: “Wednesday is Earth Day, a day to appreciate and protect this precious planet we call home. And today, there’s no greater threat to our planet than climate change.” It only seems like Islamo-fascists have been trying to wipe out Western civilization for as long as earth’s climate has been changing. “Stifle yourself! You’re causing global warming/cooling/climate change.”The truth however is that the earth’s climate has been changing since it’s inception while the Muslim scourge has only been in our midst for the better part...

    In preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, Oceana on the Potomac wishes to point out that – while there is nothing to worry about - you should be vigilant as you travel through those jam-packed airports this week because there are “a few bad apples” out there. Also, while you’re free to celebrate as you see fit the Ministry of Truth would just like you to keep in mind that Thanksgiving actually commemorates America’s colonial, imperialist, racist, genocidal past. Butt if you white people want to go on pretending that it is a day set aside to thank the Creator...

    How many facts would a fact checker check if a fact checker would check facts? That’s a rhetorical question of course, as we all know that early 21st century “fact checkers” are nothing more than conveyor belts of talking points set up to further advance the narrative.John Hindracker documents a day in the life of Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler (here) who dismissed The Donald’s statement that on 9/11, “thousands and thousands” of American Muslims in Jersey City celebrated the successful terrorist attacks. Fact Checker Kessler calls the claim “outrageous” and wrote: Trump says that he saw this with...

    Newest polls all continue to show The Donald leading in Iowa, the Granite State and nationally. (And Ted Cruz is picking up momentum everywhere as well.)In honor of this achievement, the Ace of Spades held a Talk Like Trump Day – the same as “talk like a pirate” only more fun. First, the premise: If you follow Trump on Twitter, you see he has a specific style of messaging. The formula is Brief Opening Thought, Vague Elaboration, and then a Brief Summary With an Exclamation Point! Followed by this Ace’s (made up) example: Immigration policy is a disaster. A real...

    Let’s face it, not everyone has the temperament to be President, or a Supreme Court justice for that matter. Take Barry for example: When talking about possibilities for his post-presidency life, Obama, a former law professor, says he doesn't have the temperament to be a Supreme Court justice but thinks he's 'suited' to be commissioner of the NBA and would 'absolutely' love to own his own team. – Daily Mail h/t Lili Yeah, why would you want to argue about a law’s constitutionality with 8 other justices when you’re accustomed to writing laws yourself with just your pen and phone?And...

    We’ve all heard the phrase regarding the 3 most important aspects of real estate: location, location, location! I’ve been thinking about our current Middle East “refugee” problem and I think I’ve developed the optimal solution, using this basic principle. Instead of sending refugees on dangerous journeys to locations that are already densely populated, where social services are already hopelessly strapped and they’ll have to struggle to integrate with the existing culture why not reverse the direction of their emigration? Why not send them someplace where resistance is not futile, where society is already amenable to their religion of peace and...

    Let’s take a little break from poop swastikas and other campus micro/macro aggressions to examine a real conflict from abroad. France has finally found something in the clash of cultures to take a stand on…wine. Ahead of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s landmark European trip kicking off this weekend, French officials reportedly nixed plans for a formal meal in Paris with President François Hollande following a dispute over the menu. The Iranians, according to France’s RTL Radio, insisted on a wine-free meal with halal meat — a request based on Islamic codes that amounted to culinary sacrilege in France, a nation...

    Ah the 1960’s: the decade of America’s counter-cultural revolution. Youthful revolutionaries circa 1960 found fault with America’s materialism and sought to improve society’s inequities tied to race, class, and gender. Campus unrest was rampant, civil discourse was not-so-civil, and everyone, everywhere seemed consumed by racial tension fueled by charges of discrimination. Had we done a better job, perhaps we wouldn’t still be litigating the same grievances 50 years hence.At the half century mark all we’ve effectively done is impose mandatory politically correct speech, create campus “safe spaces” and raise children who grow more hyper-sensitive to real and/or perceived micro-aggressions with...

    Yesterday we discussed gaslighting – a manipulative technique defined by ever increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information and/or providing false information with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity.Variations of this technique have been known in the past as “disinformation” “newspeak” and “agitprop.”Today I would like to discuss a skill that is quite useful in fighting this form of abuse: “audiographic memory” - a variant of photographic memory in which a person is capable of remembering verbatim everything they’ve ever heard. It is an especially effective skill to have when arguing or debating with...

    “Gaslighting” This is not a new video butt as each passing week and month indicates, much of America has yet to get the word.As Bill Whittle explains, “gaslighting” is a term derived from the movie by the same name in which a husband seeks to get his wife out of the way by having her committed. He does this by repeatedly denying her reality; by telling her that things she has seen and heard really didn’t happen, or didn’t happen the way she thinks they did. In the old Soviet Union this was known as agitprop.Be sure to take notes;...

    “There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”― William Shakespeare, Hamlet “One may smile, and smile, and be a villain. ” ― William Shakespeare, Hamlet I award this week’s Captain Obvious award to Peggy Noonan for this astute observation: The 2008 Democratic contest was a rush to the center, with both leading Democrats, Mrs. Clinton and Barack Obama, trying to show they were moderates at heart. The 2016 primary is a rush to the left. We are now not embarrassed to argue America should be more like Denmark. - WSJ Sadly...

    <p>I couldnt let the week of Columbus Day Sales pass without acknowledging the genesis of this now contentious holiday. Why has Columbus Day become so controversial? Why has this intrepid adventurer come to be considered a villain rather than a hero?</p>

    Random thoughts on last nights televised Democratic debate.And the winner is surprise Hillary! Bill was right, that new face lift really paid off. Look mom! No more turkey neck!In fact, Hilz doesnt look a day older than she did 7 years ago.Even The Donald thought she performed well. Its almost like she got the questions ahead of time, or something.Moral of the story: never, ever, bet against the Clinton machine. With the Clinton machine running efficiently in the background things that might normally matter no longer do. Corruption doesnt matter, emails dont matter, dead ambassadors dont matter, classified...

    Tonight Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders (along with others too small to mention) take to the stage for a debate being held at the Winn in Las Vegas. I note that CNN has been clear that they will not be pitting one candidates position against another. I rather thought that was the purpose of presidential debates.Butt I guess that format is considered a micro-aggression in Democrat debates, as its based on a debate structure invented by old white imperialists. (note: this rule does not apply to Republican debates, as they are all old white imperialists)Will the candidates be asked if...

    I have a very hectic week ahead, so Im going to have to leave you (mostly) to your own devices. Dont do anything I wouldnt do. Heres todays assignment: Big Guys interview on 60 Minutes is delusion the new leadership? President Barack Obama: America is a safer place. Making America safer since 2009Steve Kroft: A year ago when we did this interview, there was some saber-rattling between the United States and Russia on the Ukrainian border. Now its also going on in Syria. You said a year ago that the United States America leads. Were the indispensible nation. Mr....

    Remember the dress that broke the internet? Is it white and gold, or blue and black? Concerned citizens demanded to know the truth.Oddly enough, it turned out to be black and blue, and the white and gold version that so many people saw was simply a manipulated image.Well, I think its happening again:What color is this jacket? Gold, beige and black? Silver, gold and navy? Orange black and brown? Again, concerned citizens demand to know. So lets get a clarification: MSM: Mrs. Clinton, what color is you jacket? Hillary Clinton: Why? What color do you want it to be? So...

    Its not often that you come across an article that is concise, insightful, and useful. Jon Gabriel at Ricochet has managed all that and he put it into a handy chart (The Media Narrative Chart for reporting violent crime). A laminated copy would make a nice gift for any current or aspirational members of The Future Journ0lists of America club.This single chart serves as the equivalent of a masters degree from any one of Americas foremost J-schools. That certainly begins to explain our fascination with the size of Kim Kardashians butt doesnt it?Butt back to the chart: for any...

    We dont know exactly what happened, all we know is that the attack left at least one man down.By all accounts it was an alcohol fueled incident related to nightlife shenanigans. Little is known about the perpetrators at this point butt apparently there had been a confrontation between the two groups earlier.Early reports indicate that the wounds, while serious, do not appear to be life-threatening to the body.Even so the whole affair is enough to make a grown man cry.I sure hope they clear this mess on Capital Hill up quickly so we can get back to waging the war...

    What does Barack Hussein Obama wish to achieve by politicizing mass shootings? Safe and sane gun laws? What are they? For a lot of progressives it entails a a gun-free society.I know Im going to sleep better, now that Hilz has finally stated her position on gun control: she thinks its time for responsible gun-owners to 'take back' the 2nd amendment from those dangerous, nut-job extremists in the NRA. And she does this while managing to squeeze out a few tears (just to prove her humanity).And just in case you dont think shes willing to take on the NRA, let...

    Ill be boarding a C-130 early this morning and heading west to an undisclosed location where Raj and I will be undergoing our annual hi-tech systems checks and undertaking some major rehab projects. Which is to say there will be a complete radio blackout for a few hours as we do a fly-over. So, while Im out of contact, why dont you reflect on Lady Ms ridiculously busy week:First, her fugue in B&W minor with Beyonc - which was billed as a Global Citizen Festival, whatever that is:Whew! That looks dangerously close to a Lenny Kravitz wardrobe malfunction!Then there was...
