  • The Left Loves Diversity — Except When It Comes to Political Views

    Pajamas Media ^ | June 6 | Bernard Chapin
    You can always tell on campus who the conservative professors are. They’re the ones not attempting to indoctrinate their students. When I had the opportunity to teach several courses at a local college a few years back, I became a conspicuous example of this phenomenon. I stuck to the facts but could not prevent students from occasionally politicizing discussions as established practices are not easily abandoned. Their interjections always unnerved me. On one occasion, a young lady replied, in response to a mundane comment from a peer, “Well, I’m not surprised. We’re all Democrats in here with the exception of...
  • Levin Takes Down Frum (fan site pile on)

    By email, Dan alerted me to, on his Riehl World View, where Mark Levin added a second guest commentary, this time focusing on "conservative" David Frum. Here's an excerpt and the link over: My interactions with Frum have been minimal, despite his past suggestions that they were something more. As best I recall, I met him first on an Amtrak train. He was sitting near the restroom feverishly working his lap top's keyboard. We exchanged pleasantries, and that was about it. I believe the next time I met him was at the Ledeen's home. He seemed harmless enough. The next...
  • Obama’s Transportation Secretary Says He Wants to ‘Coerce People Out of Their Cars’

    ( - Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood told a group of reporters at the National Press Club on Thursday that he wants to “coerce people out of their cars.” In Newsweek magazine last week, nationally syndicated columnist George Will published a piece critical of Lahood, entitled, “Ray Lahood, Transformed--Secretary of Behavior Modification.” “He says he has joined a ‘transformational’ administration: ‘I think we can change people's behavior,’” Will reports that Lahood said over lunch. Lahood, a former Republican congressman from Peoria, Ill., has become a champion of using the Department of Transportation and federal transportation spending to get people to take...
  • Obama vs Cheney

    Last night, Mark Levin compared the speech of President Barack Obama to remarks made by former Vice President Dick Cheney yesterday. (Full audio of Cheney speech here.): There are flaws within these passages from what President Obama said yesterday: Indeed, the legal challenges that have sparked so much debate in recent weeks in Washington would be taking place whether or not I decided to close Guantanamo. For example, the court order to release seventeen Uighur detainees took place last fall – when George Bush was President. The Supreme Court that invalidated the system of prosecution at Guantanamo in 2006 was...

    Waterbury Republican-American ^ | May 2, 2009 | Editorial
    Overall, "read my lips" was the first feckless President Bush's biggest mistake because of its unintended consequences on the culture, foreign policy and the national discourse. Among other things, it opened the door to the politics of personal destruction of Bill Clinton and all that entailed, which begat the Republican Revolution of 1994. The second feckless President Bush and moderate congressional Republicans ended up hijacking the revolution, and their borrow-and-spend policies breathed new life into long-ago-discredited liberalism. That led the Democrats back to the White House and gave them solid liberal majorities on Capitol Hill, including very soon a filibuster-proof...

I do not agree with some of his political positions and do not accept his framing of certain issues. But I am appalled by the left's delegitimizing of Lieberman and anyone connected with him. I do not believe that Israel's Arab citizens must be required to declare their loyalty to the Jewish state. What must be demanded of them and of all Israeli citizens, whether Jewish, Druze or other, is unflinching loyalty to the State of Israel and...

    [Mark] Levin's target is those collectivists whom he collectively labels simply the "statists". These are the big government reformers who are incapable of resisting Story's "captivations of theory." Rather than be burdened by the thought that man's nature is imperfect, these so-called progressives swoon to the thought of the perfectibility of man's nature -- perfectible, that is, if only government is allowed to intrude ever further and impose rules drawn from increasingly abstract speculations about what the good life demands. In the end, Levin draws his reader back to an appreciation of the dangers of just how much tyranny can...

    Weeks ago, I obsessed on a political point: would President Barack Obama mobilize his millions of voters to apply political pressure on Washington to pass his policy initiatives. At that time, the stimulus package was the top item on his agenda, and the White House was not doing much to activate the Obama millions to boost support for the legislation in Congress. As the stimulus fight proceeded, Organizing for America, the spin-off of the Obama presidential campaign, did zap out an email to its list of 13 million and asked those supporters to hold house parties to discuss the recovery...

    Who has more sway in today’s Republican Party -- Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, or Michael Steele? (Who gets to make that judgment? Who -- other than Rush -- should be happy that the White House has cast its vote?) The Great Rush Wars of 2009 are great theater, particularly if you’re a Democrat. The sideshow gives President Obama some breathing room that Wall Street keeps trying to take away from him -- and if Obama gets to run his agenda against El Rushbo, here’s guessing that’s a fight the White House will take. Speaking of taking: Democrats are ramping up...

    Reports are out that President Obama has said he opposes any attempt to bring up the Fairness Doctrine. This isn't the first time he has said this, and it certainly won't be the last. He can say it as often as he wants and he might oppose the specific language known as the "Fairness Doctrine," but that doesn't mean he opposes the principle of it. In fact, just the opposite can be seen from his record as senator. For example, as Terence Jeffrey noted in "Silencing the Opposition" in the February 2009 issue of Townhall magazine (subscribe), he can...

    America has since its birth been a place where men and women from around the world could come and have 'a chance' to reach their individual desires. It has never been a place freeloaders would seek because real effort was normally required to obtain personal dreams and vision. Until the relatively recent past, the Public Schools tried very hard to teach and make clear the reasons that people were seeking America. American History and Civics were requirements for graduation and were understood to be the foundation for creating a good citizen. (Personal responsibility was also expected in the schools.) A...

    If at times, it is not easy to determine what a liberal is, it’s because during presidential election campaigns, politicians who have been voting like liberals, talking like liberals and boasting about their liberal credentials, suddenly insist that they’re really centrists as they go about trying to garner the votes of gullible Republicans and Independents. It’s rather like Michelle Obama trying to convince us that she’s just another stay-at-home mom who loves America and her kids, and in exactly that order. Most of us on the right can spot a liberal a mile away, just as easily as experienced bird...

Can it be mere coincidence that the leading companies in the deal — ExxonMobil, Shell, BP and Total — are the very same companies that Saddam Hussein threw out when he nationalized the Iraqi oil industry more than three decades ago?

    There are major differences between liberals and conservatives, and that’s why I never know what people such as Barack Obama are talking about when they speak of bringing us all together. And I suspect that Jeremiah Wright’s surrogate son doesn’t know, either. For instance, if I support the surge in Iraq and you insist on bringing the troops home by next Thursday, what’s our compromise? Bringing our troops only partway home? Say as far as the Canary Islands? If you’re in favor of same-sex marriages and I happen to think the whole idea is a very silly joke, where’s our...

    The apparent madness of Leftists opposing any drilling for oil in ANWR, where the environmental impact is practically nil and which would immediately begin to ratchet down the price of oil, and Leftists simultaneously railing against big oil companies for high oil prices is only apparently mad. The Left wants the price of oil high. The Left wants the price of all necessities like food and medicine high. The fact that this causes general misery and that this causes particular misery among the lower middle class does not prevent the Left from taking this perverse position. That fact is the...
  • Let's worry about Islamofascism

    Let's worry about Islamofascism The resolution adopted by Muslim theologians representing the various schools of Islam at the All-India Anti-terrorism Conference organised by Darul Uloom, Deoband, 'denouncing' terrorism but condoning radical Islam's ghastly excesses, apart from remaining silent on Islamist terrorism in India which continues to extract a terrible price, is of a piece with the Observatory Report on Islamophobia released by the Organisation of Islamic Conference at its recent meeting in Dakar, Senegal. Both documents seek to justify manufactured Muslim rage and lay the blame for the resultant death and destruction at the doors of everybody else but...

    WASHINGTON - Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder. "Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave." While political activists...

    Atlanta Journal Constitution ^ | 3/19/08 | Cynthia Tucker
    Last August, during an appearance before the National Association of Black Journalists, Barack Obama was asked whether he'd lead the nation in a "conversation about race" if he were elected president. He demurred, suggesting that Americans were more interested in having a president who would fight terrorism and economic decline than one who acted as therapist-in-chief. It was a pragmatic response from the man trying to become the nation's first black president. He'd never win over substantial numbers of white or brown or even black voters if he seemed overly focused on America's racial divide. But the issue of race...

    Eliot Spitzer has remained governor longer than most people expected after 4 pm ET yesterday. When the news broke that the former prosecutor who once bragged of busting a prostitution ring had recently decided to patronize another, most people assumed that his admission would be quickly followed by an exit from the political stage. However, despite numerous calls for his resignation, Spitzer has not yet departed: Stunned politicians in both parties last night called on Gov. Spitzer to resign.Democratic Assemblyman John McEneny (Albany) said:“I don’t think anyone remembers anything like this. The fact that the governor has a reputation as...

    In "light" of Nader running... again, here's bit more of the great "honesty" of this liberal fanatic (though this piece was written in 2002). Ralph Nader is a hypocrite where did millionaire Nader get so much money to invest in the first place? ... Nader refused to release his income-tax returns. ... political wise I think it's good for the GOP that Liberal Nader runs against Liberal Obama...

    How do you get 6,000 college students whipped up into a lather? Here's one way: Secretly install low-flow, eco-shower heads in their dorms over winter break. The slow drip has triggered a deluge of complaints in bathrooms all over Stanford University. But a compromise may be ending the water wars. Officials now promise to retrofit hundreds of showers with politically incorrect, higher-pressure nozzles. With a fury normally reserved for the University of California-Berkeley, students complained in an e-mail petition, a letter-writing campaign, a newspaper editorial and meetings with Stanford officials. "It is like showering under a sink faucet," said Christian...
