Colombia: Government-FARC deal finalized

The Marxist narco-terrorrist guerrilla get seats in Congress, and much everything else it wanted: The accord calls for the state to work with the FARC to mitigate drug trafficking in areas where the guerrillas had influence; permits the rebel group to transform into a political party; establishes a system to [Read More]

NYC Pols Defend Nixing TLC English Proficiency and Written Exam for Prospective “Yellow Taxi Drivers”

If you have ever ridden in a New York City yellow cab, odds are that you’ve experienced a cultural and language barrier between yourself and a yellow cab driver, many of whom pretend not to know English until it’s time to collect the fare. If, like myself, you are an [Read More]

The Jewish Left Lies About Tikkun Olam

by Robert J. Avrech I pay particular attention to the use and abuse of language by the left. The left has always lied and twisted reality to conform to its utopian ideology. But Barack Obama and the leftist media have ushered in a new Orwellian age where their morally depraved [Read More]

Hillary Clinton: She’s Just Like Us!

By: Mike McDaniel.  Yes, Gentle Readers, Hillary Clinton is just like us. She feels our pain. She knows our troubles, and walks a mile in our moccasins. She has the common touch and, by her own lights, is a Horatio Alger, rags to riches story. Who could not fail to be [Read More]

On taking a stand — when it’s a good thing to the Left and when it’s a bad thing

Cliven Bundy and his cohorts took a stand against the federal government for its land grabbing behavior in Nevada.  (The federal government controls 81% of Nevada land.) Bundy was and is extremely hostile to the Bureau of Land Management, which he sees as antithetical to state and individual rights under [Read More]

So why did Leonardo DiCaprio really ditch today’s Clinton fundraiser?

Hollywood elitist, one percenter Leonardo DiCaprio scheduled to host a Hillary Clinton fundraiser today at his home in Hollywood backed out at the last moment. The talking points are that the scheduled plans surrounding DiCaprio’s movie production, ‘Before the Flood,’ another climate change movie has changed preventing the climate change [Read More]

Book Review: Don Surber Hits It Out Of The Park With “Trump The Press”

When I first received my review copy of Don Surber’s “Trump The Press” I was expecting something good, having read his stuff before. But this one, quite simply is off the charts. “Trump The Press” is Surber’s scintillating chronicle of the Trump phenomenon, and especially of the mainstream press and [Read More]

The Music Goes ‘Round and ‘Round

I’ve been avoiding remarking on the presidential campaigns as their Mighty Wurlitzers spin out. However, this comment by Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post on the latest revelation about Hillary Clinton’s emails caught my attention: To be clear: Clinton has already been cleared of any official wrongdoing in the matter [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 8/22/16 — the “as the world turns” edition and open thread

No wonder 1984 is no longer required reading in high schools. One of the Little Bookworms, after a summer of sloth, decided to read something noteworthy before returning to school. Her choice was George Orwell’s 1984, which I would include in any top 25 or even top 10 reading list. [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 8/21/16 — the passing parade edition and open thread

Once again that this blog’s motto is proven correct. My blog’s motto is “Conservatives deal with facts and reach conclusions; liberals have conclusions and sell them as facts.” The only thing wrong with the motto is that the word “liberal” is a poor substitute for a whole category of Leftists and [Read More]

Barack Obama And Louisiana Flooding: Projection

By: Mike McDaniel.  I am not among the throng who think a President’s job to be Comforter-In-Chief. Bill Clinton might be blamed for this idiotic idea when he came up with the idea of traipsing around the nation whenever anything bad happened, to be photographed hugging a widow, child, etc., and [Read More]

Who says Obama does not care about Louisiana flood victims?

So, just because the Republicans, who the Left insists hate Black people, women, the poor, the elderly, kittens, puppies, llamas, clean water, clean air, trees, left-handed Lesbian squirrels and of course flood victims, actually visited Louisiana, and helped out, some people are saying that perhaps Obama, who chose to go golfing [Read More]

#NeverTrumpers, please get off your moral high horse before you hurt America

In the past couple of weeks, two superb essays came out castigating conservatives who are going to do anything but vote for Donald Trump, whether that means voting for Hillary, Johnson (a closet Democrat who’s been Hillary’s echo chamber), or what’s his name the Mormon. For me, the bottom line [Read More]

Last Night Was the Turning Point in Trump’s Campaign

That’s what PJ Media’s Roger Kimball has to say about Donald Trump’s speech last night. Here’s a slice: Donald Trump cleared up one thing in his speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, last night: he is running to win. Throughout this very odd election cycle, some pundits have periodically suggested that [Read More]

Brilliant campaign email from Trump

I tend to submit my name to various political campaigns, both Republican and Democrat, so that I can see their emails. Most of the emails are open begs for money, and they are predicated on fear — the other side is winning, we’re cornered, we need your help. As Scott [Read More]

Politicians’ external behaviors do not prove whether they have a strong moral core

I don’t particularly like a friend one of the Little Bookworms has, although I feel quite sorry for the young woman. She’s in her late teens, with staggeringly low self-esteem that she buries by indulging in drugs, alcohol, and gender fluid sexual engagements. I don’t worry, though, that she’ll be [Read More]
