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

If 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 learning […]

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

To 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 salesman […]

Rand Paul’s Righteous NSA Lawsuit

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is suing the federal government on behalf of everyone who has a mobile phone. For this, he should be thanked. Paul’s spirited opposition to the National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ electronic communications, which his lawsuit seeks to curtail, is consistent with the ideals of individual liberty on which America was […]

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

If 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 example, […]

There’s a word for this.

Says 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 same […]

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

The 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 other […]

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

A 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 “settled […]

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

In 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 reporting […]

MSNBC is a left-wing advocacy organization

A cable news channel, MSNBC, retweets a commendation from the world’s biggest abortion mill, Planned Parenthood.  That in and of itself  is indicative of horrendously faulty editorial judgement, coming as it does from the main Twitter account of what is supposedly a news organization. But it’s worse: this retweet comes as a result of an […]

Charles Krauthammer’s Defense of the ‘Victimless’ NSA

In conservative quarters, telling Charles Krauthammer he’s wrong is like giving the Pope a noogie. As a graduate of Harvard Medical School, a board-certified psychiatrist, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, Krauthammer is rightly revered as the most brilliant participant in modern political debate. Unseemly though it may be for a plebian like me to […]

Hillary Clinton as Ted Kennedy

I like to think Chappaquiddick was the reason Ted Kennedy never became president. That is, when he ran against President Jimmy Carter for the Democratic nomination in 1980, one hopes voters concluded it would be unseemly to elect a man who had driven a woman off a bridge and left her to drown while he […]

America’s Greatest Problem

If this is your first week following the news, you could be forgiven for believing America’s biggest problem is that pylons were placed with extreme prejudice on a New Jersey bridge last September. The closing of the George Washington Bridge by members of Gov. Chris Christie’s staff, apparently as payback for the denial of an […]
