  • MLA Reality Gap

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | January 28, 2015 | Spencer Irvine
    At the Modern Language Association (MLA) convention in Vancouver, Canada, the degree to which many professors are divorced from reality was brought into sharp focus. Few panels at the conference that draws thousands of English professors from around the world actually dealt with literature but no matter what issue was discussed in the hundreds of panels at the MLA, professing panelists kept a safe distance from the real world: o When the MLA gets through with children’s literature, neither the kids nor their parents will recognize it. Apparently, there are books and illustrated guides, praising the likes of Marx and...
  • Obama campaign team working to defeat Netanyahu in Israeli election (On the ground IN Israel!)

    The Examiner ^ | 27 Jan 15
    During Barack Obama's recent State of the Union speech, he told America he had no more campaigns to run. But it seems that statement flies in the face of reports that an organization known as “One Voice” has brought in what has been called a "five-man Obama team" to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Included in that five-man team is Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama's 2012 campaign, Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis, said Monday, citing a report at Haaretz. That group, Dr. Lerner added, will run the anti-Netanyahu effort out...

    Yesterday, while in Las Vegas, Governor Palin said "of course" she was interested in running for president in 2016.  Naturally, this got quite a response from the mainstream media.As such, she arrived in Iowa last night and greeted many supporters, fellow commentators, and other perceived hopefuls for the nomination where she was asked to clarify her statement:As Bob Costas reports: Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016.“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin said, when asked to clarify her thinking about a...

    I like to refer to Islam as equivalent to the Manson Family on a global scale. Just how accurate is that? Let’s take a look. Ali Sina is a renowned ex-Muslim author, and founder of FaithFreedom.org. He writes, “I see Muhammed as a psychopath and Allah was nothing but his own alter-ego. He invented this bugaboo deity to fool people and ride them. Allah is no god and even if he was, Muhammed did not receive any revelations from him. Muhammed was a deranged man. He concocted this whole lie to fool people. He was no different than Jim Jones,...

    In the question and answer portion of one of the many panels at the 2015 Modern Language Association convention in Vancouver, Canada, one professor claimed he was being politically persecuted. David Anshen, who works at Texas Pan American University as an associate professor in English, said, “I believe I’m being politically persecuted, but I cannot prove it.” He claimed that a book he helped co-author, which talked about how the CIA has infiltrated college campuses, put him in a blackbook of sorts with the state of Texas and its provost.

    Recently, Fox News was shamed into apologizing for one of their anchors talking about "no go" zones in Europe, where non-Muslims aren't welcome and even the police feel reluctant to enter. For the record, there are no "official" no-go zones anywhere in Europe.  What government on planet Earth would willingly admit that it doesn't control its own territory?  But in France, there are 751 neighborhoods the French government believe they don't fully control.  Daniel Pipes explains: They go by the euphemistic term Zones Urbaines Sensibles, or Sensitive Urban Zones, with the even more antiseptic acronym ZUS, and there are...

According to one Iraqi news source, an Iraqi air strike killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi earlier today, but further information supposedly sourced from Iraqi PM Haidar al-Abadi upgraded al-Baghdadi’s status to wounded.

    And those of us on the other side of the Second Amendment divide might just thank you for it. Eugene Volokh makes the case: A commenter on a recent thread asked — seemingly from a pro-gun-control perspective — “Why can’t guns be treated like cars, regulated and available, only to those who demonstrate competence and compliance with laws?” That is a perfect excuse for me to reprise my analysis of the guns-cars analogy. Cars are basically regulated as follows (I rely below on California law, but to my knowledge the rules are similar throughout the country):

    Obama has evidenced a preference for authoritarian regimes. His preference is why he did not force concessions from Cuba, concessions that would have fostered democratic reforms and given hope to those languishing in Castro’s Stygian domains. He appears to be more interested in sanctioning and weakening Israel, our sole democratic ally in the Middle East, than he is in enforcing the current embargo against Cuba. He seems to be more interested in sitting down at the bargaining table with Iran than he is in strengthening relations with America’s Western allies. The president’s actions have enormous implications.

CNN's Anderson Cooper cited polls that reveal white people do not view the issue the same way as black people. "It's not happening to them, so they don't quite get it," Fulton told Cooper in an interview that aired Friday on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360." "They don't quite understand. They think that it's a small group of African-Americans that's complaining: 'Oh, what are they complaining about now?'" Cooper asked: "You hear that from people?" "Oh yeah," Fulton said. "The...

    Reason ^ | 12/06/2014 | Robby Soave
    In comparison to the Michael Brown shooting, the death of Eric Garner—and the similar decision not to indict the cop who killed him—has drawn outrage from across the political spectrum. Many conservatives, including Breitbart's John Nolte, The Federalist's Sean Davis, and The Daily Caller's Matt Lewis, agreed with anti-police-brutality libertarians and liberals that Garner's killer should have faced charges. The consensus is that the video evidence definitively established wrongdoing on the part of the officer (unlike the Brown case, which relied on conflicting eyewitness testimony). But because that's no fun, right and left had to find some way to tear...

    The federal courts would never uphold a law requiring people to show “good cause” before they could speak in public or march in a parade. It would be a violation of our First Amendment rights. Yet an ongoing court battle examines whether similar rules regarding the carrying of firearms is an equally outrageous violation of the Second Amendment. The case started in 2008 in San Diego County, when Edward Peruta and other gun owners challenged San Diego County’s process for issuing concealed-carry permits. State law gives sheriffs the power to determine “good cause” – and San Diego County required documentation...

    In fact, it’s hard to see who else you could have hired. Modeling health reform is a very detail-driven business: you need a detailed statistical representation of the population, together with detailed estimates of behavioral responses to incentives. Gruber has spent years developing such a model, which is maintained and update at considerable expense. Who else could bring the same resources to bear? Well, I guess the administration could have turned to the Lewin Group, but aside from the fact that Gruber has such sterling academic credentials, Lewin is owned by United Healthcare.

African-Americans who, more than any other group, were promised “hope and change” in 2008 have seen plenty of reasons to lose hope, because the changes seen during Barack Obama’s first six years have done them serious harm.Democrats have gotten used to counting on well over 90 percent of blacks voting in their favor.

    Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed...

Just like last time, the person was taken to the hospital by a friend, so we wait to hear from the hospital when they make...

    Radio station KFNS-FM (100.7 FM, “The Viper”) of Troy, Missouri is reporting on its Facebook page a bombshell of a claim: ***BREAKING NEWS*** Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction....

    short but explosive video of former CIA Director James Woolsey in 2006 has been introduced into evidence at the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his officers. In that video, Woolsey advocates the removal of Middle Eastern dictators, even mentioning Mubarak by name while strongly implying that after the fall of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the U.S. would seek similar regime changes in Libya, Syria and elsewhere to make the Saudis and Mubarak 'nervous.' If you've ever beaten your head against the wall trying to figure out the post-9/11 strategy of the U.S. and why we went into...

    From a reliable source on Twitter and ISIS itself. The group has declared that they are aiming to seize the capital of Iraq as it is thrown into chaos due to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s apparent coup. Foreigners, including the US Embassy staff have fled the city. ISIS appears to be pulling forces away from the Kurdish front to face the faltering Iraqi government in Baghdad.

    PROGRESS? Some technology represents unquestioned progress, despite causing real challenges to the employment prospects of citizens who are made redundant. For example, recent advances in science and medicine have merely scratched the surface in terms of enhancing our ability to find cures for diseases in an increasingly focused way at sharply diminished cost. Also, the technology of moving people and goods in vehicles and organizing their movement on roads contains tremendous opportunities for cost and energy efficiencies, as do the areas of resource extraction, the development of alternative energy and the efficiency of food production. These are just a few...

    by Jason DeWitt | Top Right NewsThis young man's really bad day began when a truck threw a beer bottle at the passenger door of his adored Mustang. And it only got worse from there. Shortly thereafter he got pulled over for speeding, and told the officer about the beer bottle. But during his long wait while the officer checked the truck, and then his license, insult was added to injury, as a truck smashed into the back of his pulled over Mustang. In the photo above you can see him look towards the heavens, asking “Why?” But it got even worse...the driver was uninsured! WATCH:...

    Danny Danon, member of Knesset in Israel, told Newsmax today that when Obama called Netanyahu, he yelled at him, telling him what to do and what not to do. Danon said that Obama wasn’t speaking to the leader of the Taliban, that he was speaking to the leader of the state of Israel and this is no way to treat the leader of an ally. Listen:
  • Glen Beck's Kindler, Gentler Exploitation of the Border Crisis

    American Thinker ^ | 07/28/2014 | John Bennett
    Glen Beck’s “charity” charade is neither conservative nor, in my opinion, Christian.  This nation’s charitable impulses have already been exploited beyond belief through decades’ worth of lax immigration enforcement.  The most likely outcome of Beck’s “charity” act is that it will diminish the rule of law and undermine conservative goals.With his flippant gift-giving, Beck (and his colleagues like Dana Loesch) will make it harder for America to reduce illegal immigration, maintain our sovereignty, and restrain the welfare state.  How could teddy bears and soccer balls have such an impact?  The short answer is that giving door prizes to illegal aliens...

    Well, this is awkward.Unlike the D.C. Circuit, which split 2-1, the majority here was 3-0. Even so, the most noteworthy thing about the opinion is how tormented the court seems in trying to determine what Congress intended when it said that subsidies should be available only on “an exchange established by the State.” From page 20:Page 24:Page 28:If they can’t decide what the key phrase was designed to do, why don’t they follow the D.C. Circuit’s lead and stick with the plain text? In the first excerpt above, the court frankly admits that the language of the law seems...

    The Media Equalizer ^ | July 16 2014 | Brian Maloney
    In Boston, parking’s been a nightmare for ages, with spaces capped by the federal Clean Air Act and further state regulations. Funny enough, that means MORE air pollution as frustrated drivers circle around the city looking for a place to put the car. So when free-market capitalism and technology ride to the rescue, you might think Boston would be quick to embrace the instant reduction in idling traffic. But if you’ve seen this movie before, you’ve already spotted the error: “free-market capitalism”. THAT’S a bigger no-no than smog!
