It’s both unsurprising and sad that more people probably know today is Cinco de Mayo and Wednesday was Star Wars Day (May the 4th Be With You) than Yom HaShoah, Israel Holocaust Remembrance Day. The political climate in Europe, and increasingly, in America, supports the narrative that Israel is a bully, a conqueror, and an… [Read More]
The First Amendment prohibits the government from interfering with the press, no matter how much they lie or misrepresent. It was done that way on purpose; in fact Hillary Clinton and her wholly-owned subsidiaries the mainstream media count on it.
Three questions continue to perplex me. Why is anyone surprised that Donald Trump is still leading the race for the GOP nomination? Why is anyone surprised that Ted Cruz is catching up? And last, why is anyone surprised that a GOP-controlled Congress passed a gallstone with a $1.1 trillion “omnibus” budget bloated with pork, pork,… [Read More]
If I were Ted Cruz, I’d be pretty happy looking at today’s poll. Polls are notoriously fickle before actual primaries have taken place, and even then they’re not necessarily the most reliable indicators of future performance. But it’s all we have, and a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.
In case you’re not following the news, Hillary Clinton is facing some legal trouble, having turned her e-mail server over to the FBI as part of an investigation into her alleged insecure storage of highly classified material. Of course, the server itself is blank—it was professionally wiped clean before she handed it to the Feds…. [Read More]
During the 1980 presidential campaign, Reagan cultivated a following of disaffected Democrats, known as “Reagan Democrats.” The cross-over vote almost certainly helped Reagan crush Jimmy Carter at the polls. Now, Jeb Bush is developing his own cadre of “Bush Democrats” but this crop sports more than just blue politics—their attraction to Bush is because of… [Read More]
On the really big questions, science is pretty cool. NASA estimates the age of the universe at 13.77 billion years, give or take 59 million years—that’s a 0.04 percent spread. I wish they could predict the Super Bowl or tomorrow’s weather that that kind of accuracy (but they can’t). Nearly 14 billion years may seem… [Read More]
The Associated Press won the Astroglide prize for stroke headline of the year when they went with this headline for Hillary Clinton’s “official” campaign kickoff. Presented without further comment: How the @AP reports on two female presidential candidates from different parties. pic.twitter.com/bbcDzjepIM — LilMissSoulGlo (@LilMissRightie) June 14, 2015 Notice how they handled Carly Fiorina’s campaign… [Read More]
Bill and Hillary Clinton would be the perfect casting pair to lead a live reboot of “Despicable Me,” but without the cute minions. The New York Times reported former President Clinton accepted a lifetime achievement award in 2014 from Petra Nemcova, a Czech model who survived the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The award was given by Nemcova’s… [Read More]
