  • Being a Leftist Means never having to Say You're Sorry

    What may be the most appealing thing about being a leftist is that you can never be wrong - ever. As we learned from our last post, leftist ideas never fail because their only objective is to make leftists feel good about themselves.If their ideas appear to fail, it is always someone else's fault - greedy businesses, obstinate Republicans, racist Americans, etc. It never even enters the thought process that when a leftist idea fails it's becasue their ideas might not have been good to begin with. As The Bookworm puts it,"Conservatives deal with facts and reach conclusions; liberals have...

    Marco Rubio's campaign seems to have crashed on the rocks because of his...shall we say somewhat repetitive use of the phrase "Obama knows what he's doing", but the truth is, he was 100% right. The reason that so many people scoff at the notion that Obama knows what he's doing is because the very notion of an American leader who seeks to destroy that which he leads is anathema to most rational Americans. And the truth is, Barack Obama doesn't seek to destroy the nation he leads, he seeks to "fundamentally transform" it. Splitting hairs you might say, but...

    Obama's favorite JV team has chemical weapon and a new home in which to grow, courtesy of Hillary Clinton. In testimony before the Armed Serves Committee DNI James Clapper confirmed that ISIS has produced and used chemical weapons. The nation's top intelligence official confirmed Tuesday that the Islamic State has succeeded in making and deploying chemical agents in Iraq and Syria -- calling it the first such attack by an extremist group in more than two decades. The confirmation of mustard gas use came during Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he spoke to...

    Back when Sister Babe was pregnant with Little Bob, we had a conversation about how our lives would be changing once we became parents. One concern she raised was that I would no longer be able to go to the (sadly, now closed) Rhino Bar on Sunday afternoons in the fall to drink too much beer and watch Philadelphia Eagles football with the local crazies, and that I might come to resent her and our child for taking the ability to do that from my life. This was the pregnancy talking, as Sister Babe has too good a head...

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    With each passing day, Hillary's stories become more and more ridiculous. Approaching critical mass, in fact. At some point, she's going to blow up. Clinton's stories continue to evolve. In 2007 having a secret email account was "shredding the Constitution." Back on March 10 of last year, there was no classified information on her server: "I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email; there is no classified material." Until there was. More than 1300 of them. Then her pleadings changed. "I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the...

    Did you know that Hillary Clinton was the one who shot Osama Bin Laden? Neither did I until the other day. From 2013 to 2015 Hillary Clinton sucked in nearly $3 million dollars from Wall St banks. In just 12 speeches. Clinton's most lucrative year was 2013, right after stepping down as secretary of state. That year, she made $2.3 million for three speeches to Goldman Sachs and individual speeches to Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, Apollo Management Holdings, UBS, Bank of America, and Golden Tree Asset Managers. The following year, she picked up $485,000 for a speech to...

    Retired Gen. David Petraeus is reportedly facing a possible retroactive demotion: US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter is reportedly mulling personally demoting retired four-star general David Petraeus for disclosing classified data. The former US commander in Iraq and CIA Director would then be liable to return hundreds of thousands of dollars of his pension. The ongoing deliberations were confirmed to The Daily Beast by three senior Pentagon officials.

    I love Donald Trump. For all of his faults, he has done this nation an extraordinary service that it seems no other politician has been able to do for a quarter century. He put the single, most important issue facing our nation at the top of the heap in terms of what voters are concerned with: Immigration. Illegal immigration is literally undermining our nation, and without control of our borders there is simply no way our country will survive as a constitutional republic. That love, I suppose, is really more appreciation. While I thank Trump to the high heavens for...

    A supposed ally of Great Britain and The United States, the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia started the New Year of 2016 in traditional style by executing forty seven people. Most of them were executed for committing terror attacks within the kingdom. Among those executed was a Shia cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimra, an outspoken critic of the Sunni, Saudi regime. The "guilty" victims faced death by firing squad or beheading although as yet, no Western leader has asserted that the Saudis pervert and distort the true, peaceful meaning of Islam as is the case with Islamic State.

I'm told that the Germans remain so stigmatized by Holocaust thing that they are paralyzed by events occurring now, i.e. "rapefugees" running amuck across Germany. In its paralysis, the German government has fallen onto one of its old bad habits- persecution. Germany again is persecuting its citizens. They are being deprived of their rights. The first sentence in the German Constitution guarantees this: "Human dignity is inviolable." Apparently, that no longer applies to German citizens, specifically women. Persecution...

    Late last year I started listening to the History of Rome app. While functionally terrible, content wise it's quite good. Having been many years since I read Roman history, it's a welcome refresher for those things I've forgotten and an education for many more I never learned in the first place. It's an extraordinary history, particularly the first 500 years when Rome was a republic. As I was listening I couldn't help but draw a few parallels between the Roman Republic and ours. Slavery changed the face of the Roman Republic. Although slavery had been an element of Roman history...

    Against a background of terror attacks committed by Muslims on every continent, Western governments and their propaganda merchants in the mainstream media continue to repeat the mantra that Islam is actually a religion of peace. They insist that jihadists who commit violence in the name of Islam are distorting the faith and are not true Muslims. It's a narrative most people in the West are desperate to believe mainly because they're terminally welded to the ideology of Multiculturalism and its doctrine of equality. They also know that if they ever dare to question the narrative, they will be smeared as...

    But worse. Much worse. Although Hillary Clinton is widely expected to prevail in the democrat primaries, there is concern for her. She's not likable. Allies of Hillary Clinton are confident she will win the Democratic presidential nomination, but they are worried about one big thing: her likability problem in the general election. Clinton has rebounded from a rough spring and summer with a strong fall. And while her eyes remain on the primary, she is already testing general election themes against her possible GOP opponents as they do battle in what could be a drawn-out Republican primary. Presidential elections are...

    Prince Charles has kicked off the global warming summit in Paris. As is always the case with liberals, Charles is preaching of combatting climate change via the use of other people's money. He has not committed the wealth of the crown to the effort. One look at the above image makes clear that Obama is in Paris to, as much as anything else, preen. Not surprisingly, they couldn't get him to shut up. The warming thing is a tool being used to bludgeon the masses into submission. The goal is redistribution of wealth, worldwide. But it's your wealth that's going...

    I remember once hearing a question posed by some would be philosopher: "If you could do something that cured all of the ills of the world, but only if someone you despised would get the credit, would you do it?" It's an interesting question with a number of elements to it. Are you really a humanitarian or do you just want to be seen as such? What's more important, your legacy or the lives of others? Are you able to overcome petty jealousy for the "greater good"? Of course as it's a hypothetical question you can answer and gain all...

    Friday 13th November 2015 brought more murderous acts of Islamic jihad to the streets of Paris. It was a day everyone knew would come at some point yet most did their level best to pretend it never would. Once the day was over, 129 innocent people had paid the ultimate price for this pretense, gunned down or blown to pieces by devout followers of Islam, the religion of peace. As is now normal practice following these diabolical attacks on civilians, political leaders and the mainstream media went to great lengths to avoid connecting the attack to Islam. The perpetrators were...

    Oh, wait....wrong Turkey. quite like seeing a lame duck president pardoning the national turkey (can you tell which one's which?). Actually, I think our comedian-in-chief is pretty good in this role. Nor did I mind his jab at GOP presidential candidates (I think some of them are turkeys). It was done in lighthearted jest. No harm, no foul, however fowl. While I am sympathetic to the plight of Syrian refugees and consider some of the rhetoric against allowing these refugees into the States to be tinged with hysteria, exaggerations, xenophobia, and Islamophobia, I also find legitimate concerns as well....

    The Pentagon Inspector General has disclosed that emails were sent from Centcom to defense analysts to "toe the line" on ISIS. Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to "cut it out," Fox News has learned - as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture. Fox News is told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to "cut it out" and "toe...

    A week and a half ago fascist thugs of ISIS attacked Paris. Three days later President Obama addressed the world from Istanbul and said the attack was "an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share." That is a wonderful sentiment, but like most things that come out of Barack Obama's mouth, it's wrong. There are not universal values. Take freedom of speech. Across the planet, from China to Saudi Arabia to Russia to Venezuela, (and most places in between) nothing resembling freedom of speech such freedom exists. In the West, from Australia to England to Italy...

    Ah, it's good to be a Clinton. They have leveraged their political positions to raise $3 billion over the last 40 years: LITTLE ROCK - Over four decades of public life, Bill and Hillary Clinton have built an unrivaled global network of donors while pioneering fundraising techniques that have transformed modern politics and paved the way for them to potentially become the first husband and wife to win the White House. The grand total raised for all of their political campaigns and their family's charitable foundation reaches at least $3 billion, according to a Washington Post investigation. Their fundraising haul,...

    What does it take? When does the American left catch on? Barack Obama thinks he knows everything about everything. Just ask him. He's never wrong. He cannot admit to being wrong. Anything that goes badly is someone else's fault. ("I didn't set the red line", "I got bad intel.") Wrong he has been and wrong he is. This is highly revealing passage from an article written by Steve Hayes and Tom Jocelyn: Four months before he was elected president, Obama traveled to Iraq for briefings on the war he had long opposed. He met with General David Petraeus, who was...

    As anybody knows, every Republican who achieves national recognition gets branded by the Radical Left with at least one of three labels: stupid, old, or evil. After Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, the Democrats have permanently forfeited one of these labels, given how four of the most prominent figures have reacted to the attacks: First, we'll start with the crazed socialist who's a big hit with all of the kids, Bernie SandersSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday reiterated his claim that climate change will lead to terrorism by destabilizing regions affected by droughts, floods, and other natural disasters. "The reason...

    One of the very few honest things Barack Obama ever said came when he admitted he had no plan for ISIS. President Obama is facing intense criticism for admitting Thursday "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with Islamic State militants in Syria, despite warnings from top military advisers and others that the group must be confronted on that side of the border. The president made the comment during a briefing with reporters in which he overtly played down the prospect of any imminent military action in Syria. He tried to temper speculation that he was about to roll...

    President Barack Arrogant McStompyfoot held his ground the other day, proclaiming that the US was going to continue importing Syrian refugees, despite the fact that they cannot be properly screened. Deputy National Security Director Ben Rhodes was the guy who made sure the video was the focus in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks as opposed to policy failure. He now assures us that the refugees will be thoroughly screened. He's not worried.Todd asked, "Does the president now have any more pause about bringing Syrian refugees into the United States?" Rhodes said, "No, Chuck. We have very extensive screening procedures...

    The ISIS attacks on civilians in Paris and the attacks on common sense across the country are two sides of the same coin. Both were carried out by those who hate freedom…. Not their freedom of course, but yours. With ISIS (as well as fanatical Muslims around the planet) you are expected to live the way they want you to, to act the way they want you to, but most of all you must believe the way they want you to… or they will simply kill you. At Mizzou, Yale and Amherst, protesters, (as well as liberals everywhere across the...
