One in Five People Who Write For Rolling Stone Are Morons
In response to the total implosion of Rolling Stone's preposterous story about a fraternity gang-rape at the University of Virginia, the media have reverted to their Soviet-style reporting.
Jackie Gingrich Cushman:
Holidays and a Mother's Love
This is my second Christmas season without my mother, and so far it's been harder than the first. I had known that the first year would be hard, and all I really cared about was surviving it.
Progressives Can’t Help But Exploit Tragedy
Few things upset progressives like a terrorist attack by Islamo-fascists. Not the act of terror itself, mind you, but the perceived backlash against Muslims that follows.
'Racial' Cop Stories That Didn't Make the Cut
In 2012, according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police. Over the 13-year period from 1999 to 2011, the CDC reports that 2,151 whites were killed by cops -- and 1,130 blacks were killed by cops.
Black Abortions Matter
A friend sent me a recent news article showing that Planned Parenthood had decided to join in the protest of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. He was curious to know why Planned Parenthood was interested in the case.
Judge Andrew Napolitano:
Is Government Faithful to the Constitution?
Hidden in the law that authorized the government to spend more than it will collect was a part about funding for the 16 federal civilian intelligence agencies.
Does Anyone Even Understand the President?
There is a whole cottage industry devoted to deciphering the intended unintended consequences of the ideological incompetency and inconsistency that exudes from Obama.
The Rules of War Need Updating
The attack on a cafe in Sydney, Australia, by a self-described Islamic cleric with a long police record, left two hostages dead, along with the cleric, one Man Haron Monis. He was an Iranian refugee who enjoyed the hospitality and protection of the Australian government.
Debra J. Saunders:
Global Warming, Empty Gestures
I have a theory as to why Americans don't worry all that much about global warming: High-profile purveyors of climate change don't push for reductions in greenhouse gases so much as focus on berating people who do not agree with their opinions. They call themselves champions of "the science" yet focus on ideology more than tangible results.
Why Trump Should Run
The elite media will scoff at a potential Donald Trump candidacy for president. They will consider it a publicity move and a bluff. The Washington insiders will write off Trump as completely unqualified to be a presidential candidate, much less president.
When the Big News Isn't News
Last week the papers were overflowing with stories about a Senate committee's report on the Central Intelligence Agency's use of torture to extract information from terrorists -- known or just suspected terrorists.
Targeting "Assault Weapons" Again
The 1994 federal law banning "assault weapons" was a high point of the gun control movement and Bill Clinton's presidency. Signing the bill, he said it was the beginning of "our effort to restore safety and security to the people of this country." But something happened that he and his allies had not predicted: nothing.
White Heat? Another Liberal Bashes Caucasian Males
This piece, however, is important because it shows the liberal mind at work. Would the St. Louis Post-Dispatch have dared to publish an Op-Ed in which their top editorial writer mocked, ridiculed, and insulted all young black men? Would they have allowed Horrigan a platform to do the same to middle aged white women?
WASHINGTON -- Will Rogers, the late American humorist and corn-pone philosopher, once said, "All I know is what I read in the papers."
A Chubby North Korean Dictator Brings Free Speech to a Halt
I really, really, really, hate to go here, but: If you dont watch Seth Rogen in The Interview this Christmas, the terrorists win.
Daniel J. Mitchell:
Good News on Young People and Gun Control
Were going to review two separate pieces of information, one about whether young people want to work for the federal government and another about an online poll about gun control that backfired. And both are somewhat encouraging, albeit not very scientific.
Will Cuba moderate their long history of anti-American rhetoric in Central and South America? Will they end the decades of torture and imprisonment of Cuban citizens for doing nothing more than yearning for the freedom taken for granted just ninety miles away in the United States? Seems unlikely under the Castro leadership.
The Fed Continues to be Blind
Pundits poring over the statement have generally concluded as does the Financial Times, that Fed Signals Tightening by Mid-2015. Why?
Some Advice and a Job Request For the Jeb Bush 2016 Campaign Team
Understanding the current political appetite of the country and the major issues that are of significant import to Americans, these are the key items Ill suggest he repeatedly emphasize in an effort to get hired by his team:
Terrorism Encourages Australians to Revisit Gun Laws
It is times like these that Americans should be thankful for their Second Amendment, and crush any effort or force seeking to weaken or remove it.
Ransom Notes Radio:
Obama's Outreach to Communists
The Obama Administration is now looking to normalize relations with the communist nation of Cuba. Just picture it: A cigar-smoke filled back room in Cuba with a bunch of commies making empty promises Cuban officials will also be there.
Trying Hard To Not Try
You're a modest person, I know, but you have to admit -- there is one thing that you do better than anyone else. That's doing nothing.
Falling Oil means Increased Spending... Right?
According to the Energy Information Administration only 21% of all net energy to be used in 2015 will come from imports. That means that 79% of our energy needs will be provided domestically.
A Walking Shadow...Poor Player
The Dow was down 99 points, rallied up 249 points, and then it fell to earth, back into the abyss, finishing the session down 111 points. The only constant was volatility
North Korea is Appalled that the UN Would Point Out Human Rights Violations
The North Korean leadership is manic about the UN's findings of longstanding, institutionalized and systemic human rights abuses in North Korea. For most of the world, that finding is not only overdue but unsurprising.
Jeb Bush: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Waterboy
Allow me to unite America's left, right and center in just three words: No, Jeb, No.
Walter E. Williams:
Should Profiling Be Banned?
Last week, the Obama administration announced new curbs on racial profiling by federal law enforcement. Before deciding whether this is good or bad policy, we might try to develop a description/definition of racial profiling or any other kind of profiling.
