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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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:

Bundy Ranch Standoff Ends

April 13, 2014

Hopefully you’ve been paying attention to events happening in Nevada regarding rancher Clive Bundy’s conflict with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) — it says a lot about what is bubbling beneath the surface in DC and across the nation. The case is simple: Bundy has to pay grazing fees to the federal government since [...]

Rand Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll

March 9, 2014

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll yesterday with 31% of the total vote, getting nearly three times more votes than the nearest competitor, Ted Cruz.  In case you missed it, here is Rand Paul’s speech last Thursday at CPAC.  Generally, these polls are not bellwethers or harbingers, but are a useful snapshot.

False Choice Between Hawkishness and Isolationism

March 6, 2014

Don’t get me wrong — this is not the worst case of the oversimplification of our political process out there, but today’s piece in the National Journal on Rand Paul and Marco Rubio is an excellent example of what I recently labeled as the silliness dominating our discourse.  One of the tricks media outlets, and [...]

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 [...]

De Blasio’s Own Traffic Rules

February 21, 2014

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed a 62-point plan which he believes will lead to safer traffic patterns and streets.  A big city progressive who wants tons of new rules and regulations?  No news there. However, it’s nonetheless bad form to have one’s own caravan caught two days later by CBS2 cameras blowing through [...]

Super Slaughter

February 3, 2014

Outside of the Pacific Northwest, last night’s Super Bowl XLVIII was not very exciting.  I predicted a 27-24 Broncos victory, contingent upon whether or not Seattle could produce a pass rush against Peyton Manning.  Well, no pass rush was necessary for the kind of beat-down we haven’t seen in a Super Bowl since 1993:  Seattle [...]

Big Game Sunday!!!

February 2, 2014

Tonight at around 6:30pm EST Super Bowl XLVIII (“48″ to us non-Romans) between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks–the league’s #1 offense versus the #1 defense, while both being #1 seeds in their respective conferences during the playoffs.  Here’s a preview. It should be a great game–Vegas still has the game with the Broncos [...]

It’s Cold — VORTEX Cold!

January 6, 2014

If you live in the central or northeast United States, <newsflash!> it’s cold! But in today’s America, everything must be a crisis. So, that makes this particular very cold snap a “polar vortex.”  Ominous, isn’t it?  We even name winter storms now.  In some places we even have local (ahem) superintendents robo-calling entire towns to [...]

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 [...]

Movie Review — The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

December 14, 2013

The second part of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug (TDOS), hit theaters this weekend with most wondering how it would compare to last year’s first installment.  Here’s the trailer: No significant plot spoilers, but some won’t make sense if you didn’t read the book While a number of critics had a [...]

James O’Keefe Strikes Again

November 12, 2013

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is at it again!  This group exposed the corruption with ACORN, the holes in our voter ID laws, trouble with the NJEA teacher’s union, and much more.  They are truly necessary watchdogs helping to expose political corruption, speaking truth to power (as well as to the rest of us). Now, Project [...]

Syria: Sarin Gas Used, but Whose Was It?

September 2, 2013

My thoughts on Syria are pretty clear:  with no clear strategic American interest in that civil war, let Iran’s proxies in the Assad regime and the Islamist rebels keep killing each other.  The only other pressing issue is letting the use of chemical weapons go unpunished, especially after all of President Obama’s “red line” statements. [...]

Anti-War Crowd Rather Subdued on Syria

August 31, 2013

In politics and life, I respect consistency.  For instance, Dennis Kucinich and I have starkly different philosophies, but at least he’s consistent in his views, especially about war. So President Obama, a Progressive Liberal Democrat is on the verge of going to war with Syria: without a broad international coalition of any kind possibly without [...]

It’s Past Time for “a la carte” Cable!

August 30, 2013

Senator John McCain does have one issue that sets him apart from his peers in the Senate — he supports “a la carte” cable and has sponsored a bill to do something about it.  Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.  Called the “Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013,” this bill would allow [...]

Obama in Spades

August 15, 2013

What would you do if after having apparently cancelled the Bin Laden raid three times already, it was finally happening on live feeds from the SEAL’s headcams on huge screens in the situation room?  I know I’d be glued! However, a candid moment from Obama’s old “bodyman,” Reggie Love (some people are born with porn [...]

CNN: Benghazi Bombshell?

August 1, 2013

In a spontaneous act of actual journalism, CNN’s Drew Griffin is reporting that the events of September 11, 2012, at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, may not be so “phony” after all. The highlights of the report include: A number of CIA agents had been in Benghazi that night, adding the CIA to the [...]

Obama: Fueling the Racial Flames

July 21, 2013

Friday, while few were paying attention, President Obama made these remarks regarding the George Zimmerman verdict.  Here’s a short clip: Any observer of this administration can see, clearly by now, that the Justice Department and now Obama himself, are involved in a major media head fake, stoking the flames of discontent regarding this duly adjudicated [...]

George Zimmerman Acquitted

July 14, 2013

Last evening the six-member jury deliberating the guilt of George Zimmerman found him not guilty, acquitting him for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.  The Blaze has great coverage of the last 24 hours, as this story keeps developing. Having been on a million juries (that’s what I get for voting in every election!), [...]

Sharknado? Yup, Sharknado

July 12, 2013

What happens when global warming sucks sharks out of the ocean, puts them in a tornado, and has them attacking people (and Tara Reid) in Southern California? A rare dose of campy awesomeness which Syfy Channel’s Sharknado delivered last night; a “mockbuster” film if there ever was one: Syfy has consistently mixed up all sorts of [...]

The New Fox on Fox

July 11, 2013

Elisabeth Hasselbeck made it official on The View yesterday that she’ll be moving to the curvy couch at Fox & Friends starting this September, where she’ll be replacing co-host Gretchen Carlson.  I think it’s a great career move, being that it keeps her in the media in a more intellectual environment.  Pretty soon she may [...]

June 9, 2013

In a move which will have major personal ramifications, 29-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden fled to Hong Kong in order to come forward about his leaking of the totalitarian-like PRISM program.  Here is his statement to the UK Guardian: Your move, Obama Nation.
