Hillary Skates (Post-Comey Presser Web Roundup)

Hillary Skates (Post-Comey Presser Web Roundup)

Update: Jill Stein, Green Party standard-bearer, drops a pipe bomb.  The plot thickens.  A Clinton supporter explains what’s wrong with this decision.  A less than enthusiastic appraisal of Hillary’s problems by a liberal columnist in D.C.  Spic ‘n’ Span.  He said, she said.  Relevant. One of the most remarkable admissions during this press conference was...

Election 2016: Fault Lines

While I’ve had to delay this post for obvious reasons, here are some of my thoughts on Donald Trump’s national security speech delivered in New Hampshire this past week. Although I’ve criticized Donald Trump’s deficiencies, re: prepared speeches, in the past, even while acknowledging the rhetorical brilliance of his extemporaneous remarks and verbal ripostes, I don’t think...

The Meccan War Criminal (PBUH)

The Meccan War Criminal (PBUH)

The graphic above is taken from the brilliant Cognitive Bias Parade, which is one of many online venues that have chosen to show their solidarity with the 12 martyrs of Charlie Hebdo by embracing the satirical defiance which so aggrieves the soldiers of Allah. The insincere protestations of America’s intellectual gatekeepers notwithstanding, the reaction...
