The New Star Wars Film Gets a Name

November 6, 2014

A fanboy alert struck earlier today as director JJ Abrams’ latest addition to the Star Wars Universe (Episode VII) released its official subtitle today.  The movie, set for release in December 2015, will be called:  Star Wars Episode VII — The Force Awakens. While nothing about the plot was released or officially confirmed today, Abrams [...]

2014 Aftermath: Who Really Won

November 5, 2014

The election results from the 2014  midterm election are coming in, but the outcome is already a fait accompli:  the GOP has retained the House of Representatives, won 24 of 36 gubernatorial elections, and took the Senate by at least two votes [as of this moment some these numbers are in flux as a few [...]

Did Enterovirous Arrive from Central America?

November 2, 2014

That’s a question more and more parents want to know.  Evidence is mounting that the wave of enterovirus EV-D68 cases impacting students throughout the nation originated in Central America, giving fuel to the argument that Obama’s policy of sending those unaccompanied illegal minors to all 50 states may have spread this deadly virus. I’ve contended [...]

2014 Midterms: Another Missed Opportunity

October 19, 2014

We’re sixteen days out from what should be a massive GOP landslide in the 2014 Midterm elections on November 4.  Ebola, ISIS, Obamacare’s latest victims, the porous borders, etc. should make this real easy for the GOP.  Yet, the latest polls indicate that a landslide is not likely to take place. Why not? Brent Bozell [...]

Baffling: Bush Admin Covers Up WMDs in Iraq

October 17, 2014

The old WMD story has recently resurfaced and if what I’ve read is true, I’m beyond outraged. The back story:  Back in 2006 the Pentagon feared that the insurgents (particularly Al Qaeda in Iraq, now ISIS) would use remnants of Saddam’s chemical weapon stockpile against US troops particularly for use in IEDs. Of course, that [...]

Ebola and the Enterovirus — Preventable Plagues?

October 5, 2014

Right now two plagues are a scourge across America — Ebola and the Non-Polio Enterovirus D-68.  While our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of these highly infectious and deadly diseases making their rounds around the USA, two notions popped into my mind. First, how in the hell did Ebola get in the [...]

Smoke and Fire in Benghazi

September 7, 2014

You know the old saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  The September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was just such a story.  The Obama Administration’s reaction to it seemed odd (like they were hiding something), and anyone could have figured that this terrorist attack (less than two months before a [...]

Mike Ditka (and Me) on the Redskins Debate

August 20, 2014

The Washington Redskins name controversy is resurfacing as the 2014 NFL season draws closer.  The politically correct cultural elites are trying to force their views onto a generally disinterested public to further turn the mostly neutered  NFL (No Fun League) political.  For libs everything is political — they can’t help it, it’s just who they [...]

Robin Williams: 1951-2014

August 12, 2014

Iconic comic Robin Williams was found dead yesterday of an apparent suicide at the age of 63.  The comic leaves behind a wife and three children, as well as a nation in shock and sadness. How could a man so funny be dealing with such deep depression? As someone close to a few people with [...]

Project Veritas on the Border: Do You Feel Safe?

August 11, 2014

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas just released a new video designed to emphasize the real problem with an open Southern border — we don’t really know who is coming over the border!  Here’s the latest video showing O’Keefe himself, dressed like Osama Bin Laden crossing from Mexico into the United States. The Southern border should have [...]

Back in Iraq

August 10, 2014

Iraq is a mess. Unfortunately that line could have been described Iraq at any time since 1980.  Like Tito in Yugoslavia, Saddam was able to keep all the various factions in line, usually with brute force.  Remove Saddam from the mix and without proper planning and support, a mess could ensue.  And it did. After [...]

Pelosi Unhinged on the House Floor

August 3, 2014

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got a bit unhinged when Pennsylvania Congressman, Republican Tom Marino, called her out for playing politics with the border by indicating that the Democrats had all the power back in 2009-10 and did nothing about these problems.  Here’s a Fox News interview with Marino on his reaction to Pelosi: While [...]

Forty-five years ago today Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the Moon.  Michael Collins drew the short straw and had to stay in orbit. Real heroes achieving a milestone in history on par with the discovery of the New World, and one which required less computing power to accomplish [...]

Crisis Prone Day: Gaza Invasion, Malaysian Air Crash, Persistent Border Issues

July 17, 2014

It’s just one of those days. Israel invades Gaza.  After ten days of on-and-off ceasefires and peace talks, the Israelis decided that a blunt force trauma to the Hamas terrorist infrastructure would be the best move to secure their border.  Can’t blame Israel — they even announced days ago that they were coming in order [...]

Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

July 16, 2014

I needed some veg time after finishing up a grad school paper yesterday and found myself going to see a mindless film on a random rainy Tuesday.  Given what’s out right now, I decided to see the 416th (eighth actually) “Planet of the Apes” film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  Here’s the trailer: [...]

Two Big First Amendment SCOTUS Decisions

June 30, 2014

The Supreme Court handed down two big decisions today (5-4, predictably), one striking down parts of the Obamacare contraception mandate, the other allowing certain employees to opt out of union membership. The Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision notes that since HHS has already carved out some exemptions for religious institutions to be exempt from the [...]

The Cochran/McDaniel Run-off Fiasco

June 26, 2014

This past Tuesday, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran defeated insurgent Tea Party-favorite Chris McDaniel in a run-off election by about 6,700 votes.  While McDaniel defeated Cochran in the popular vote after the first primary election, McDaniel failed to get the 50% needed to avoid a run-off. McDaniel is obviously upset and is threatening legal action, which [...]

Mike Rogers on ISIS

June 26, 2014

Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers has some insight into why ISIS and al Qaeda have had issues, and note that while the intelligence community was well aware of the growing threat from ISIS, watching them gain power and influence over the past three years, the administration largely ignored the threat.  Here’s a brief clip of Rogers [...]

Iraq Descends into Chaos

June 14, 2014

Iraq is descending into chaos as a terrorist militant group called ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria/Levant) has seized the second largest city in Iraq, Mosul, and have stampeded across Anbar province to within 50 miles of Baghdad. A number of factors are in play:  the fact that the US never renewed the SOFA [...]

The Brat Who Ousted a Majority Leader

June 11, 2014

Last evening a political earthquake took place that everyone is still trying to absorb.  Eric Cantor became the first sitting House Majority Leader to ever lose a primary (at least since the position was created in the 1890s).  That’s big, especially since his opponent was a little known college professor named Dave Brat, who won [...]

Trouble at the Border

June 10, 2014

How in the hell do tens of thousands of unaccompanied children end up swamping the Mexican border, creating an impending humanitarian crisis? As far as I can tell, there are two reasons:  1) negligent border security efforts and 2) the impression in many Central American countries that an amnesty is coming. So, the Obama Nation [...]

Bergdahl Prisoner Exchange Debacle

June 4, 2014

Just in time to take the V.A. scandal out of the headlines while head-faking the nation so a deal can be reached with the Hamas-led terrorist Palestinian government, President Obama neatly handed over five Taliban members who were resting comfortably at Gitmo for one American POW… without notifying Congress, which is illegal since these guys [...]

Beck on the Santa Barbara Killings

May 27, 2014

Six people were killed and thirteen were wounded when 22 year old Elliot Rodger went on his killing spree this weekend.  Rodger left a massive manifesto and many YouTube videos trying to explain his mindset before perpetrating these murders. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims. Unfortunately, the [...]

May 18, 2014

The New Math

May 14, 2014

This is not absurd.  In fact, it’s quite serious as it is really being taught to our children in schools in 44 states and DC: I wonder what history will look like when Common Core gets its mitts on that!

Southern Poverty Law Center: Common Core Critics “Extremist”

May 11, 2014

The Southern Poverty Law Center (probably in dire need of attention and funds these days) has labelled those who raise their voices in opposition to the Common Core federal takeover of education standards as promoting “far-right propaganda” associated with “Fox News, the John Birch Society, Tea Part factions, and the Christian Right.” I’m not shocked [...]
