    Janis, I.L. (1982). Groupthink: A psychological study of policy decisions and fiascoes. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company. I took a few liberties with Mr. Janis' symptoms of groupthink and recast them here as The Eight Commandments of the Left. Consider it the ultimate Rosetta Stone to unlocking the mystery of everything the left says or does. Turns out the left really DOES NOT think, they just fetch and execute Von Neunamm style and pass it off as intellect.

    NRO ^ | 9/28/14 | Andrew McCarthy
    We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual...

    SIERRA VISTA — It was standing room only at Regis hair salon Wednesday evening, with a line that stretched out the door. More than 20 Troop 444 Boy Scouts, along with scout masters, friends and family members, crowded the salon located in the Mall at Sierra Vista for a group head shaving. They were doing it in a show of support for Assistant Scoutmaster Janet Thompson who is undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. And they were doing it for cancer awareness. All smiles, 12-year-old Dakota Pierce was one of the first in the group to climb onto the stylist’s chair...

    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Shocking video of a young man who was beaten and robbed in broad daylight has gone viral, and it's all part of a disturbing trend. A handicapped man was beaten and robbed on the street. The incident was recorded, then sent around on Facebook like some entertainment or trophy. First a fight, which was more of an attack. Police say a young guy was robbed, then beaten. The fight was not one-on-one and was uneven in another way; a source close to the case says the victim was a young adult with a developmental disability.

She has children, ages 7 and 9, and has been handing out postcards to area businesses.

Ken Hanson of the Buckeye Firearms Foundation says the group sent Zimmerman a check for $12,150.37 Tuesday. He says the fundraising effort was launched because the group believes Zimmerman's gun rights are being violated.

    GAZA — A Palestinian human rights group in Gaza took the unusual step this week of condemning the building and storage of anti-Israel rockets in densely populated areas, a practice that has led to injuries and deaths of civilians. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said that it had investigated recent rocket explosions and found that locally produced projectiles had fallen on homes in Gaza or exploded in factories where they were made or stored. Shrapnel severely wounded a number of people, including a 22-year-old woman and her 7-month-old baby. It called on the Hamas government, which controls Gaza, to...

Instead,...

    When did demonstrating at the private homes of politicians or corporate executives become an acceptable way to voice one’s political opinions? Nearly two dozen activists from DC Vote swarmed House Speaker John Boehner’s Capitol Hill residence at 7:30 Thursday morning, chanting “Don’t tread of D.C.” and “No taxation without representation” to protest congressional “meddling” in the District’s local affairs, in particular a House continuing budget resolution that would cut $80 million in federal payments and prohibit the city from using local funds to pay for needle exchange programs and abortions. “Speaker Boehner is coming to our home telling us how...

The television show was deemed anti-Semitic by many in the media and Jewish groups. Beck once said that his election coverage goal was to "make George Soros cry," which is "hard to do," as Soros "saw people into gas chambers."
