Imagine if Bush had done this.

[The Blaze] The Saudi national who was initially detained and then ruled out as a suspect in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack had been flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted, sources have told me. A source close to the investigation revealed that Abdul Rahman Ali […]

WH: Actually, drones strikes are legal and effective counterterrorism policy!

Remember the tried and true age-old adage: When Republican presidents use drones to kill terrorists they’re “shredding the constitution,” but when Democrat presidents do the same it’s “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.” A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior […]

Actually, assault rifles are great for home defense.

Well, they are. Assault rifles are particularly good for women because they’re light, they’re accurate, and their typically large magazine sizes better ensure one could defend themselves from multiple assailants, particularly armed assailants. Anyway, don’t take my word for it, here’s President Obama’s current Department of Homeland Security! So, next time you hear some government […]

Obama cronies do 180 on Libya (quietly)

To say this is shameful is to insult shame. [NBC News] For the first time since four American diplomats were killed during violent protests at the U.S. consulate in Libya, the White House spokesman acknowledged that the attacks were an act of terrorism. During a gaggle with reporters on Air Force One, Press Secretary Jay […]

Obama’s Libyan narrative

I think it was put best earlier this week when some columnist — I forget who — tweeted that you know things are bad when the Libyan president becomes more credible than the American president. The Obama administration asks us to believe that on September 11 — when there have already been protests at our […]

The acceptable top 1%.

Remember, the “top 1%” vilification only applies if it’s the Romney-Bush-Cheney style top 1%, not if it’s the Obama-Kerry-Edwards-Clinton top 1%. Here’s Jim Geraghty on the rules: Nothing screams “I’m sensitive to the economic struggles of my fellow Americans” like purchasing an $85 Vera Wang-designed custom canvas tote bag at the BarackObama.com store. Or the $45 […]

Paging Lord Action: Teacher epitomizes Cult of Obama.

If you haven’t yet “seen” the video (which is really just audio) where the teacher goes off on a kid for criticizing President Obama, you can see it below. What was really galling — well, galling beyond the fact that this teacher apparently has no control whatsoever of her classroom — is when the teacher […]

Liberals against liberty.

George Will comments below on the attempt by Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) to re-define freedom of speech and fundamentally alter the First Amendment. You can’t make this stuff up. It stinks of your typical edicts from fascist, socialist, dictatorial states, and is wrapped in Orwellian language of “People’s Rights.” People, unless you’re assembling in a […]

Pelosi only lies when her lips move.

I suppose at least it made it to the WaPost opinion page, but it’s an indictment of our mainstream media that they simply refuse to ask Nancy Pelosi any hard questions regarding accusations that she flat-out lied to the American public regarding what she knew about enhanced interrogation, when she knew it, and what she […]

Rodriguez to 60-Minutes: You don’t know what you’re talking about.

A former CIA chief, Jose Rodriguez, lays the intellectual wood down on 60-Minutes’ Leslie Stahl. I love his point, which many others have noted before, that for some reason the mainstream media and many politicos curiously believe that the morally superior position is to kill terrorists rather than capture them and subject them to enhanced interrogation.
