Cloaked in hypocrisy, Obama redefines “war.”

Albeit this article is two weeks old but you know it’s bad for the liberal establishment when even the New York Times calls out the Obama administration on its horse-manure definition of “war.” Most Americans with the maturity level above fifth grade understand that a member of the U.S. military, carrying a weapon, organizing combat […]

Who’s the JV team, Mr. President?

“The analogy we use around here sometimes and is accurate is if a JV team puts on Laker uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” — President Barack Obama on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), in January. (It’s Lakers, by the way, Mr. President, not Laker). “They are an imminent threat to […]

On Iraq, Obama suddenly shy with his drone attacks.

A play on words, Jonah Goldberg calls the meltdowns in Iraq and Syria the Jihadi Spring. This is the antithesis of the Arab Spring, and the Sunni Islamic extremist group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) have wrought havoc in Syria and have now taken Mosul in Iraq, and setting their ultimate sights on […]

Boko Haram, Michelle O, and #bringbackourballs

Below is a funny but sad commentary by Mark Steyn regarding a recent Michelle Obama tweeted pic of the #bringbackourgirls Internet meme. Internet hash-tag petitions — which is what they are, really, instant mass petitions — are fine for the masses. But as a foreign policy tool it’s pure impotence. But before you read that, […]

Govt vs. Innovation.

A few years ago author Jonah Goldberg wrote, “The notion that big business and big government are at war with one another is one of the great enduring myths of the 20th century.” It is a frequent theme in his writings. But it’s a difficult message to get across, to get people to unlearn the […]

Who’s Tom Steyer?

If you don’t know Tom Steyer and his brother are the liberal equivalent of the Koch brothers, but of course since they’re liberal other liberals, including Democrats in office and media lackeys, have no problem with Tom Steyer and his big money, his corporate interests, and his politics, unlike what they have with, say, the […]

Putin’s Apologists

I had no idea such a ridiculous movement of Russian apologists had reformed, but I suppose Vladimir Putin has his “useful idiots” as much as Stalin or Lenin did. Here’s the commentary by Bret Stephens. Russia is a big country. In case you didn’t know. A flight from New York to St. Petersburg will cover […]

Good solutions to Russia which Obama won’t do.

Steve LeVine from Quartz.com has one interesting suggestion for combating Russia’s thuggery. As of now, Putin is profiting from his invasion. That is because oil prices are up on the risk of a supply disruption. This enriches the Russian state budget, half of which is supported from oil and gas exports. But economist Philip Verleger notes that prices can go […]

King Obama’s Obamacare exemptions

Don’t like ObamaCare? Tough. Law of the land. Passed in both houses. Upheld by the Supreme Court. Isn’t that what we’ve all been told for years? “Shut up!” they explained. We know what’s good for you. Our legislative experts who admitted to not reading the 2,000-page bill prior to passing it arrogantly determined that they […]

Who’s the top 1%?

There was some interesting analysis done by the Manhattan Institute’s James Piereson last month regarding who is really in that vilified “Top 1%.” It’s based on 2010 tax data — the most completely analyzed tax data currently available. As we’re in an election year you’re sure to see Democrats use it once more given its […]
