What Obama Did on September 11, 2012

As Wallace knew, Obama and his advisers planned military strategy in the situation room. They planned political strategy upstairs in the family quarters. If Pfeiffer was savvy enough to duck that question, Vietor apparently was not. His answer confirms my own suspicions about where Obama was and what he did that evening. As the evidence attests, […]

The Race-baiting Liberal Media's Self Congratulation

Institute a quota ensuring that whites, and other races, get proportionate representation among NBA players. This would make the league approximately 63 percent white, 17 percent Hispanic, 13 percent black and 6 percent Asian. The remaining one percent can be represented by Clint Eastwood’s empty chair on the sidelines, and we can throw in a […]

The Suffocating Neo-Puritanism of 'Progressive' America

Alexandra Pelosi’s HBO documentary Fall to Grace tracks the evolution of New Jersey’s disgraced, self-dubbed “gay-American,” former governor, Jim McGreevey. In one passing scene, McGreevey enters a church ostensibly more welcoming than the judgmental Catholic Church of his childhood. The message board on the church front reads — and this is a close paraphrase — […]

The Wurie Case: Restoring the Property Basis of the Fourth Amendment

The government wants the Supreme Court to expand the scope of its “search incident to arrest” doctrine, arguing that a person arrested has no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in his cell phone and, therefore, that the government need not be required to obtain a warrant based on probable cause before conducting a search of the […]

Why It's Okay to Hate Cliven Bundy

To wit: Bundy did not walk, not stumble, did not swerve into the trap set by the New York Times.  He was not ambushed, he was not taken by surprise. He instead ran full tilt and threw himself into that trap, exactly like the kid at the end of Million Dollar Hotel. Bundy sat across […]

Obamacare: Sicker Than We Thought

For far too long, opponents of the Affordable Care Act focused on a malfunctioning website, which is akin to complaining that a guillotine’s blade isn’t sharp enough.  The process doesn’t really matter, if folks end up with their heads on platters.Even as Barack Obama does a NASCAR-like victory lap, claiming 8 million enrollees (Full disclosure: the […]

'Every Man His Own Commissar': Jared Taylor and the Politics of Race

Good manners are infectious.  Jared Taylor’s civility and dapper appearance impress even those sending him death threats:  the most recent one addresses him as “Mr. Taylor.”  In an age when even upper-class Brits loosen the upper lip and revert to first names after one email exchange, we remained “Mr.” and “Mr.”Taylor, founder of American Renaissance […]

Ron Brown's House of Cards

Former congressman Barney Franks does not much like the wickedly cynical series on Netflix, House of Cards. He has particular trouble believing that a charming Southern Democrat and his ice-queen wife could cheat and lie and murder their way to the White House.“Preposterous” is how Frank describes the series’ lead character, Frank Underwood. “He has […]

The Profound Arrogant Ignorance and Stupidity of Liberals in Charge

Yes, these wizards who would organize everything and everyone lack even a cursory familiarity with the most basic of tax realities. What is it Bill Engvall says?  Oh yeah: “Here’s your sign.”  These liberals really didn’t need Engvall’s sign at all.  They tweeted their own “I’m stupid” signs.  Some wrote full-fledged low-information articles, including TPM’s […]
