Woodward in the Crosshairs

February 28, 2013

Mainstream Media icon Bob Woodward has officially fallen from grace mainly because of this exchange earlier this week: How dare he criticize Dear Leader’s “certain kind of madness!”  What’s worse, Woodward had the audacity to publicly admit that he felt threatened by the Administration’s response to that exchange. Sadly, the Obama Nation must now destroy [...]

Oops, Illegals Released as Part of Sequester

February 27, 2013

In order to scare Republicans into capitulating on yet another stand-off with the President, ICE decided to let certain illegal aliens out of jail “in order to stay within their budget” because of the impending sequester cuts. My firm belief has always been that any politician in Washington or state house or city hall who [...]

Gun Control — Through the Eyes of an ex-Secret Service Agent

February 24, 2013

The conservative media has recently been filled with this patriotic speech from former Senate candidate and ex-Secret Service agent Dan Bongino.  It’s worth adding to the echo chamber: Two lines jumped out at me: There’s no such thing as gun control…. there’s only people control. Isn’t that where this all ends up from the ruling [...]

Angelo Codevilla Takes on the Republican Establishment

February 23, 2013

On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, Mark read from an article by Angelo Codevilla during most of his first hour.  The article’s title,”As Country Club Republicans Link Up with the Democratic Ruling Class, Millions of Voters are Orphaned,” only hits the surface of the message Codevilla is trying to convey.  For those who don’t remember, Codevilla [...]

The Station Fire 10 Years Later

February 21, 2013

On the evening of February 20, 2003, a pyrotechnic display at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, sparked a fire which killed 100 people.  After a decade, an official memorial is finally being constructed on the site.  However, one hundred crosses have donned this area as an unofficial memorial since the remnants of [...]

Posturing on Sequestration

February 20, 2013

In August 2011, our leaders in Washington decided to kick the proverbial can down the road in order to not deal with our economic situation until after the November election.  The debt limit, the Bush tax rates, and potentially devastating spending cuts were all left on the table until that time.  How very brave of [...]

President’s Day

February 18, 2013

Today we honor the 43 men who have been Presidents of the United States of America.  It wasn’t always this way.  Originally “Washington’s Birthday,” President’s Day has only recently referred to all presidents — a move primarily promoted by businesses looking to stoke patriotism as a way to sell more goods. Quite frankly, some of [...]

Movie Review — The Perks of Being a Wallflower

February 17, 2013

The film The Perks of Being a Wallflower was in and out of theaters around here in NJ pretty quick.  Usually that’s a sign of a film’s quality — not this time.  I think people really missed out on a gem — I know I did, but made up for it by seeing Perks this [...]

Meteor!!!

February 15, 2013

I thought that today’s celestial action was going to take place 17,500 miles from Earth, not right smack into Russia! In what scientists are calling a “cosmic coincidence,” a totally random meteor (not related to the asteroid flying by Earth from the south) struck Russia with enough power to produce a sonic boom which has [...]

Really Close Asteroid Flyby Tomorrow

February 14, 2013

Tomorrow at around 2:25pm asteroid DA-2012 will pass only 17,200 miles from our planet.  That’s nearly 5,000 miles closer than many GPS satellites!  In fact, it’s the closest flyby ever recorded by NASA.  While scary, at the same time it’s cool that NASA can track a 150-foot rock flying so close to us. Though it [...]

A Thirst for More Rubio

February 13, 2013

I made it through literally four minutes of President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night before my gag reflex kicked-in, prompting me to watch something else.  I did catch the news round-up of its contents this morning — more progressive liberal bull crap.  However, I was interested in seeing Marco Rubio give the [...]

The Government’s “Paying-For” Problem

February 12, 2013

Does America have a spending problem? Yup.  Here’s about 16,522,000,000,000 or so indications that we do. That won’t stop ideologues like House Democrat Steny Hoyer saying things like this: Seriously, a “paying-for problem?”  They think we’re stupid — with good reason at times. For more silliness, just listen to tonight’s State of the Union Address!

Pope Benedict Resigns

February 11, 2013

At 5:30am there are some news alerts one is ready for at that hour — a natural disaster, some national security issue — and others you don’t see coming. So, when news came that Pope Benedict XVI is going to resign the papacy at 8pm on February 28, I was truly completely shocked.  This marks [...]

Mass Murderer Mess in California

February 10, 2013

Former LAPD officer and California killing spree suspect Christopher Dorner has been on the lamb for going on five days now.  After killing three people and writing a “manifesto” accusing the LAPD of racism, the LAPD has decided to re-open the case of Dorner’s firing some five years ago. Is the LAPD’s desire to deflate [...]

Listen to Dr. Benjamin Carson

February 9, 2013

This week at the National Prayer Breakfast Dr. Benjamin Carson, standing right next to the President, hit the room with this attack on political correctness. Here’s the full speech, where Carson hits the national debt, taxation, ObamaCare, and more all in the presence of Dear Leader.  It’s about a half-hour, but those of you stuck [...]

Panetta, Dempsey Paint Awful Picture of Benghazi Response

February 8, 2013

Buried in the hinterlands of media coverage yesterday was the testimony of outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, as well as Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey on the administration’s response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi last September 11. Apparently, Panetta informed the President of the attack during an already previously scheduled telephone meeting.  However, no [...]

Send in the Drones

February 5, 2013

The Obama Administration today is defending their policy of using overseas drone strikes not just on foreign terrorists, but also overseas Americans who help them out.  While the memos revealed flimsy standards governing the President’s discretion on using the drones, they defend the policy as “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.”  I’m pretty sure this guy shares the [...]

The Big Game: Blowout, Blackout, and Burnout

February 4, 2013

Last night, I turned out to be wrong about the outcome of Super Bowl XLVII.  However, I was entertained — the halftime show was good, the commercials were OK (I liked “Montana Stain” and Paul Harvey, personally), and the post-blackout game was truly exciting to watch. In terms of the spectacle, the game itself seemed [...]

Finally Super Bowl XLVII is Here!

February 3, 2013

Super Bowl XLVII (or “47″ to us non-Romans) will kick-off tonight at around 6:30 EST, featuring the San Francisco 49ers versus the Baltimore Ravens. And it’s about time!  All the manufactured hype, hackneyed story lines, politically-tinged distractions, and self-congratulations makes this two-week interregnum nearly intolerable.  Oh, and don’t forget the Pro Bowl sans all the [...]

Yesterday’s Economic Report Should Have Been Released on Groundhog Day

February 2, 2013

Yesterday the Labor Department released their January jobs report on the heels of news this week that America’s economy contracted 0.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Not good.  Since today is Groundhog Day, I decided to post on this now rather than yesterday being that for some reason I feel like I’ve written this [...]
