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 [...]

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 [...]

Trey Gowdy Hits the Press

May 18, 2014

Representative Trey Gowdy will be leading the House Select Committee on Benghazi.  This former prosecutor definitely has theatrical flair, but when coupled with the truth — watch out!  Here’s a taste of what’s coming as he pelts the press with some questions of his own:

Monica Lewinsky Opens Up

May 6, 2014

America’s most famous intern wrote a piece for Vanity Fair about her salacious relationship with our 42nd President.  The Lewinsky Affair led to the first impeachment of a President since 1868.  Like it or not, it’s part of history. First of all, she’s 40 now.  Yikes!  She was a 22-year-old White House intern at the [...]

New Benghazi Emails Emerge

May 1, 2014

And they aren’t too pretty.  Even as officers on the ground and at headquarters knew that the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks were perpetrated by a coordinated terrorist effort, the Obama Administration was making up and sticking to the ridiculous story that a video made the attackers do it. Hours after the attack the spin [...]

RI Speaker Resigns Amid Murky Investigation

March 23, 2014

Rhode Island’s House Speaker, Gordon Fox (D), resigned yesterday amid an investigation by the US attorney’s office, the FBI, the IRS, and the state police.  The story itself is interesting for two reasons: first, that no one yet knows what the investigation is all about, and secondly, that Fox is biracial and gay. In this [...]

CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

March 6, 2014

That title itself tells me everything I need to know about the value of the “C” in CPAC these days.  They also had a standing ovation for Mitch McConnell, who needed props to elicit such a response (please donate to his primary challenger, Matt Bevin, and finally get Mitch to retire).  At least they saved [...]

Russia to Invade Ukraine

March 1, 2014

Events are moving fast in Ukraine:  violent protests, parliament removing their leader, an interim government trying to catch its breath, etc.  Complicating the situation is the ethnic makeup of Ukraine — 17.3% are Russian, most of whom live in the eastern part of the country. After making plenty of noise about possibly sending troops, the [...]

Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

Movie Review — Lone Survivor

January 25, 2014

I vaguely remember a story back in 2005 about this Navy SEAL in Afghanistan who was the only one who survived an attack by dozens of Taliban, who managing to crawl to an Afghan village, and somehow got rescued.  This Iraq War vet (OIF 1), after recovering from his wounds volunteered to go back to [...]

Roe Plus 41

January 22, 2014

Ghastly math:  Roe v. Wade + 41 years = 55 million deaths. On this dark anniversary, tens of thousands braved Arctic cold and snow for the fortieth “March For Life” in Washington DC.  I was actually at one of these back in 1998.  It was inspiring to see so many others from all parts of [...]

Common Core: A 2014 Sleeper Issue

January 12, 2014

I initially wanted to post on the horrible economic news from what should have been a gang-busters robust good news jobs report that we didn’t get on Friday, but this Common Core issue keeps reappearing, impacting local politics throughout the nation as well as my own classroom. To the uninitiated, Common Core is an attempt [...]

Chris Christie Deals with a “Roadblock”

January 8, 2014

It is clear that after his recent reelection, Establishment New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to be President.  He won’t win, but the GOP seems on their way to nominate him, especially since his recent pandering to illegals.  But there may be a roadblock to an easy GOP nomination — a literal roadblock. Here is [...]

NYT Provides Cover for Hillary in Benghazi Story

December 30, 2013

If there was a story that the MSM would want out of the headlines, it’s Benghazi:  the murder of a US ambassador by an al Qaeda-linked militia; the repeated lies about the video by administration officials in the weeks following the attack; the way it makes the President look aloof, Hillary look cold, and the [...]

What to do with Phil Robertson

December 19, 2013

By now, you’ve probably heard about A&E’s suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson because of a few remarks he made about gay men.  During an interview with GQ, the hokey backwoods Robertson said the following controversial statement after a long segment on God, religion, and the ’60s: It seems like, to me, a vagina [...]

Rush on the Establishment War Against the Tea Party

December 17, 2013

We know that House Speaker John Boehner has drawn a line in the sand, not against Obama and the ideological left, but on the Tea Party and the ideological right.  For a start, Establishment Congressman Peter “Let’s Attack Everyone Everywhere” King just started an anti-Tea Party PAC to oppose insurgents in the primaries. Well, Boehner [...]

CBS’s Random Act of Journalism on Benghazi

October 28, 2013

Benghazi?  Wasn’t that, like, some “phony scandal” from a hundred years ago? Alas, no. The first murder of a US ambassador since 1979 doesn’t just go away, despite the MSM’s attempts to have us look the other way.  Yet, first CNN and now CBS have decided to dig a little deeper into what happened that [...]

Poll: Throw ‘Em Out!

October 11, 2013

A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll of “adults” (the least accurate type of polling sample aside from “people I know”) found that 57% of Americans would throw out their member of Congress if they could. Lucky for Americans, they can!  Every two years, we get to toss out the entire House and 1/3 of the [...]

The Government Shuts Down

October 1, 2013

I looked up — the sky was still there.  I looked down — a giant hole did not swallow me up.  Life is good. Last night the federal government shutdown — let the political circus begin!  Since the MSM is primarily DC/government centric, they are in a predictable frenzy.  However, if your job is a [...]

Government Shutdown Likely

September 30, 2013

With just hours to work out a deal over funding the federal government, it doesn’t look like either side will budge: the Dems believe that any shutdown will hurt Republicans, so why bother resolving anything; all while the Republicans spend their time negotiating with themselves since the Dems have no incentive to solve the problem [...]

Cruz Control*

September 25, 2013

Twenty-one hours of Ted Cruz yesterday on the Senate floor pounding Obamacare was great!  Whether or not anything good was going to come from the gesture the point was made, those who listened got a civics lesson, and those who believe in limited government appreciated a DC Republican sounding different than a Democrat for a [...]

Obama: Red Line? Not My Red Line!

September 4, 2013

On August 20, 2012, President Obama first uttered his now infamous “red line” comment regarding use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War: We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of [...]
