Medium-sized opinion pieces by Bold Colors editor Joel Johannesen

Lose Firefox. But if you must keep it, don’t do web searches with it and they’ll go broke.

Liberal: “Blather!” Conservative: “Science! Facts!”

Joel JohannesenBang! Loved this Twitter exchange from last night between Townhall.com’s Katie Pavlich, who is indomitable, and the failed CNN host Piers Morgan, rabid and apparently ignorant anti-gun zealot. The back-and-forth actually went on for a while, but this one hits the target: Um, they have dropped. Down by half since 1992. Facts, @piersmorgan — […]

Dems and their media division demand GOP list their Obamacare fixes; while Dems have none

Joel JohannesenThe Democrats are still hammering (and possible sickle-ing) out their “smart” strategy to deal with the growing Obamacare failure, in time for the 2014 mid-term campaign, but “Fix Obamacare, don’t repeal it!” seems to be the nut. NBC’s Chuck Todd thought it might be fun to ask the head of the Democrats exactly what […]

Help fund new TV movie about serial late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell

Joel JohannesenThe movie-makers behind the excellent documentary “FrackNation” are launching a unique crowd-sourcing effort to fund a new TV movie about the late-term abortionist and baby killer Kermit Gosnell. Click here to help fund this important TV film, since liberal Hollywood and the mainstream media won’t do it. Possibly related posts: MUST READ: Mike Adams’ […]

Actual news, not satire: aborted babies thrown into furnace to heat hospitals. Thanks liberals.

Joel JohannesenI found the story not by being informed via the ever so trusty mainstream media, but via Twitter. One of the conservatives I follow on Twitter tweeted it out. Then another, then another. Only conservatives tweeted it out. A link to The Telegraph was included. I set out to read more about it. Being […]

Ukraine: Liberal media scatter like rats now, after first getting Obama elected

Joel JohannesenNotes on the news coverage of Ukraine crisis: As soon as this started happening, I recalled in my little noggin the words of straight-shooter Sarah Palin, from back in 2008. She warned that if Obama were elected, Putin might just try to take Ukraine. I mostly remember liberals and their media laughing like hyenas […]

Remember Obama “evolved” on gay marriage, rather than lied? Well…

Joel JohannesenIf you read my last entry, WaPo fact-checks Obama but don’t worry, Obama’s not lying. Just “problematic claims,”  you’ll love this. I’ll wait right here while you read that. OK. Today I read an article by Guy Benson at Townhall: New Sebelius Lie: Seven Million Obamacare Enrollments Was Never Our Goal. From my earlier […]

WaPo fact-checks Obama but don’t worry, Obama’s not lying. Just “problematic claims.”

Joel JohannesenTo the Obama-luvin’ mainstream media, an outright lie to and pure deception of the American people by the president of the United States, is reduced to only a “problematic claim.” And this is itself problematic. Especially when we know the news media is onto him. They know it’s a lie. When a used car […]

Reporting on Hillary Clinton? Better be positive, or else it’s baseless.

Joel JohannesenIf you’ve heard of the recent expose on the stack of memoirs and transcripts of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair, it’s probably been written in much the same context as any other articles which shine a potentially negative light on either Bill or Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. For […]

There’s a word for this.

Joel JohannesenSays the brilliant Thomas Sowell in this week’s Random Thoughts: Once, when I was teaching at an institution that bent over backward for foreign students, I was asked in class one day: “What is your policy toward foreign students?” My reply was: “To me, all students are the same. I treat them all the […]

USACANADA: January 2014 job stats comparison? “U.S. has been cold!”

Joel JohannesenThe running South Park-inspired joke is that when something goes wrong in the U.S., “blame Canada.”  Obamatons also blame Bush, Fox News, Republicans, the tea party, Rush Limbaugh, the Koch brothers, and now, the weather. Aside from the blame game, Canada and the U.S. are similar in many ways, with a couple of the […]

Just when I thought my last will and testament was perfect…

Joel JohannesenA couple of tidbits today. First, read that penultimate sentence: See penultimate sentence. http://t.co/DuR7WFz162 — James Taranto (@jamestaranto) January 30, 2014 I will be changing mine to include the same sentiment but expanded to “all liberal media.” Item #2. This chyron on CNN just now: Why the question mark? It’s not a question, it’s […]

Obama has struggled like an army vet who was nearly killed in his 10th deployment. Yup.

Joel JohannesenIn case you didn’t know, 30-year-old Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg is a heroic veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. He was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Kandahar, Afghanistan.  Barack Obama rightly honored him in last night’s State of the Union. Some totally objective tweeps who are experts in objectively […]
