The Plot Thickens

The Plot Thickens

As if the President’s first week in office weren’t interesting enough, he has decided to fire Attorney General Sally Yates, who had been the placeholder until Jeff Sessions is confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Or so we thought. The proximate cause of her dismissal was her refusal to defend the legal actions of the...

All The News That’s Fit To Stint

All The News That’s Fit To Stint

Update: Denied bail.  Contents of the bond proffer, which describes the barbaric act these 4 creatures committed in detail.  Media coverage of the prolonged anti-white brutalization of a mentally challenged boy has been despicable. From the politically correct know-nothingism of Shephard Smith, to the antiseptic-and confusing-reports from the Associated Press, to the anti-Trump non...

Round 2: Thoughts On Last Night’s Debate

Round 2: Thoughts On Last Night’s Debate

  Update: David Goldman adds his 2 cents.  A few observations about last night’s presidential debate, which you can view in its entirety here, as well as the post-debate spin which followed. As I pointed out in an essay published earlier this year-before we knew who the parties would nominate-the defining characteristic of Hillary...

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...

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...

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...

Honoring The Fallen

Honoring The Fallen

  CNN is one of those ubiquitous aspects of the American soundscape which I’ve always looked upon as part of our gradual cultural decline. Whether you’re in a dentist’s waiting room, or simply passing by a restaurant on your way home-as I was this weekend-you can’t help but overhear one of that network’s correspondents,...

After The Storm

After The Storm

Update: Amy Curtis has also set up a GoFundMe for her friend Charlie Watson, who’s lost his house. Charlie’s Flood Relief Campaign. This video from The Weather Channel illustrates the breadth of the devastation, but also the depth of humanity, people in Louisiana are experiencing at the moment.

From The Head Down

From The Head Down

As if we needed a reminder that the Augean Stables of our federal government need to be cleansed from top to bottom, this week brought news of an FBI agent encouraging a would-be Muslim assassin in the days leading up to the jihadist assault on Garland, Texas. I’m not one prone to conspiracy theories,...

Hillary’s Folly

Hillary’s Folly

The Benghazi Report has finally been published, you can read it in its entirety here, which means we’ve been treated to some predictable political reactions, including this illuminating headline from the New York Times. Leaving aside the predictable spin from Hillary boosters in the fourth estate, one of my main problems with the national debate...
