The opponents of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana were loud and organized. They received support from media, and from major money players like Salesforce and Apple. Aggressively, and without apology, they moved their narrative on RFRA and forced a "fix" that, in essence, guts the law's original intent.
There are no journalists at Rolling Stone.
Ben Affleck's recent turn on Real Time with Bill Maher - his ranting, nonsensical and history-altering tripe during a smart, reasoned and valuable conversation about Islam and the world - exposes a myriad of truths about the actor and director, and about Liberalism.
You are not going crazy. You are not delusional. You are not making things up. You are not seeing things. You are rational, decent and aware.
Indiana has been forced to accept 245 illegal invaders, without a vote or knowledge of who they are, where they come from nor what diseases they may carry.
Apartheid in South Africa - the systematic, institutionalized racism that berated, belittled and exploited the black population - was horrific. It told black people that they are less than human. It insulted their very existence.
Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are Mexican. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are old to enough to even know what's happening to them. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are looking to do Americans harm, nor are they carrying diseases or have gang affiliations.
As the expression goes, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." When it comes to the Clinton Family the apple never fell, and all associations with the tree leave one contemptuous, elitist and complete incapable of relating to real human beings, real life and reality.
Last week in Ukraine, leaflets were being disseminated saying Jews were required to register with the government or face being thrown out of the country and their possessions seized. More and more, they have been debunked as a hoax. Jews in America, and worldwide, should nonetheless take this seriously, and recognize that - when the time comes - if they don't fight back, they will die.
Sochi, site of the Winter Olympic Games, has all the markings of being a total disaster. Like Ishtar, but with a bigger body count. Though the Games have not yet begun, reporters from around the globe are beginning to descend on the so-called resort town.
MSNBC has mastered the art of the apology. From Alec Baldwin to Martin Bashir to the tearful apology of Melissa Harris-Perry toward the Romney family for her twisted mocking of interracial adoption (if not adoption in general;) apologizing for things said "on-the-air" has become the rule at the network of the organized vocal minority.
Fast food workers are planning a strike to force employers to pay them $15 per hour. This Thursday, in over 100 cities across the nation, Big Labor is coordinating with "grassroots" activists to pressure these employers to pay a "living wage." From all the press, you'd think the push toward higher wages was something noble. But, this is Big Labor. And no one will bully, threaten or intimidate to steal your hard earned money more than Big Labor.
The New York Times is known as the paper of record. At some time in history, having a paper that practiced actual journalism was important. Almost, valuable, one could say. But now, journalism is left for the bloggers, and the bravest of souls in the MSM (that's a Sheryl Attkisson/Mark Knoller/Jake Tapper shout out right there!)
Democrats and their PR firm MSNBC are calling the Republicans extremists. Why? Because the majority-GOP House passed a continuing resolution that would keep government funded through the end of the year while defunding ObamaCare.
So there I was, texting with fellow columnist and Bon Vivant Kurt Schlichter (who, at the time, was referring to himself, in the third person, as K-Dog. True story.) We were discussing the subject of my next column when an LA Times story appeared on my Facebook wall.
Back in 2009, newly-installed Attorney General Eric Holder called America "a nation of cowards" on matters of race. Holder had it right, at least with regard to Barack Obama.
For conservatives, nothing prepared us for the horror and sadness of watching President Obama begin to dismantle the Republic in his first term.
As Animal House said it, "Fat, Drunk and Stupid is no way to go through life." Yet, on the "culture war," conservatives continue to act just like that -- with those who would rather invest in establishment instead of TV, film, music, art and literature, people ignorant that they're losing ground to Progressives every day.
Scandal-Palooza is not going away, and the mainstream media has proved that it will pay some attention to it (we love you, Sheryl Attkisson and we stand with you, James Rosen!)
Why do Conservatives insist on getting in their own way? They couldn’t have asked for a better week, one White House scandal following another like so many tumbling dominos.
