Parting Thoughts On The First Debate

Parting Thoughts On The First Debate

Just to give you a rough summary of what I thought of the first debate, here are a few rather lengthy observations: Donald Trump dominated the first 20 minutes to half hour of the encounter. Focusing primarily upon trade, the one public policy he’s immersed himself in-and has a mastery of-played to his strong...

Scandalous Behavior

Scandalous Behavior

  While the scrupulously impartial moderator of Monday’s presidential debate didn’t see fit to ask a single question about one candidate’s wanton disregard for the law, though she herself alluded to it obliquely, Judicial Watch is not in the habit of playing favorites. Criminality is criminality, even when the Director of the FBI refuses...

Trump vs. Clinton (Additional Thoughts)

Trump vs. Clinton (Additional Thoughts)

You can read my live-tweet of last night’s festivities here. Coming home, I inadvertently came upon a conversation among attendees of the Hofstra debate which briefly boosted my faith in the electorate. The multicultural crowd of Hillary supporters discussed a number of topics and made several points Trump backers would probably agree with, including...

The Great Debate

The Great Debate

Update: Brilliant pre-debate analysis by James Taranto.  Josh Marshall makes a salient point, re: Trump’s greatest handicap entering tonight’s debate. Personally, I tend to agree with Derb. Most voters will overlook an ignorance of policy details-see Aleppogate-if they have confidence in a candidate’s leadership abilities. That said, Trump does have to exhibit some minimal...

Taste The Rainbow

Taste The Rainbow

Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail.  While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy...

The Decline of Western Civilization

One of the most remarkable aspects of the Charlotte riots-and despite media social conditioning, that’s precisely what they are-is how unsurprising this reaction is. Whether it’s a clear cut case of police brutality/excessive force against an innocent civilian, or an example of a law enforcement officer defending his life in the face of lethal...

Reality Imitates The Onion

We live in strange times. WCCO’s Esme Murphy spoke with a top community leader who has been working with the family of Dahir Adan since Saturday night. Haji Yussuf, the founder of the anti-Islamophobia group Unite Cloud, said that Adan left his family apartment to go pick up his new preordered iPhone at the T-Mobile store inside the...

Federal Bureau Of Incompetence

Federal Bureau Of Incompetence

The idea that the latest all-American jihadi acted alone defies credulity, so it’s no surprise that authorities are already investigating the possibility he was part of a terror cell. The bizarre, impromptu press conference held by the perpetrator’s father merely adds to suspicions that Ahmad Khan’s jihadist intentions were known before this weekend’s terror...

Ahmad Khan Rahami (Captured)

Ahmad Khan Rahami (Captured)

Update: Mr. Rahami was a busy jihadi, it turns out.  Rahami charged.  It turns out that CNN is good for something after all.  Surrender and think of diversity.  The man who shot the now deceased jihadist in Minnesota was a competitive shooter. Perhaps, contra Maddow, guns aren’t the main culprit in Islamic terrorism? As...
