    King Minus ruled a prosperous and powerful nation, its economy was the envy of the world. Minus was proud of this, and he was proud to be the leader of such a fine kingdom. Then one night a red lizard appeared to him in a dream and it talked to him. “Oh sure, the kingdom is strong and rich. That is a fine thing indeed, but there are still a lot of poor people and can't you do something for them?” The king responded that red lizards appearing in dreams seemed a bit demonic and why should he listen to...
  • It's the patriotism, stupid. What liberal critics don't get about "American Sniper"

    foxnews ^ | Jan. 28, 2015 | Pete Hegseth
    There’s no denying it. Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” has struck a chord with the American people, and did so by tapping into the deepest civic values we have as Americans – duty, honor, fidelity, courage, love for country…and a love for others. However, no war movie can live on the big screen without a spew of liberal backlash, and this film is no different. Criticism has come quickly from Michael Moore, Seth Rogen, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and other Hollywood leftists. Thankfully, some things speak louder than cowardly tweets—like the more than $200 million in ticket sales the movie...

    A former U.S. Army Ranger sniper and author of a best-selling book about his combat tour in Afghanistan said yesterday that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should be executed if found guilty of deserting his unit in 2009.“I think he should definitely be put to death,” said Nicholas “Irv” Irving, the author (with Gray Brozek) of The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers, said on this writer’s radio show. “He’s given a lot of information to the enemy and he should pay the price.” Since being released last year, Bergdahl has received two promotions and about $300,000 in...

    On Wednesday, January 21st, Bill and Melinda Gates made a very big, very public bet: "The lives of people in poor countries will improve faster in the next 15 years than at any other time in history," they wrote in their annual letter. "And their lives will improve more than anyone else's." Beneath that bet were some very big sub-bets: that the world will cut the number of children who die before the age of five in half; that we’ll wipe four major diseases — including polio and Guinea worm — off the face of the earth; that African farmers...

    The lure of something for nothing grows as morality crumbles Fresh from offering “free” health care, “free” phones and “free” food to the masses, he’s upped the bribery to “free” community college tuition and “free” child care. It’s not that the Clintons oppose any of these; they just need to affect moderation in case Hillary runs for president and has to knock back boilermakers again with the good old boys in Pennsylvania taverns. Since someone has to pay for these expensive, new entitlements to the Free Stuff Army, Mr. Obama has proposed yet another “tax the rich” scheme that,...

    Be sure to spend a little time with Thom Peters’ piece at Catholic Vote about Pope Francis, the new, projected encyclical on the environment and human ecology, and the UN. There are pithy phrases which we might put on mugs and bumper stickers.  I like: If the future of the human race comes down to the results of a UN meeting, we’re doomed. And: The UN is also, as I said, incompetent. Worse: it is actively counterproductive. I only half jokingly, well … maybe quarter jokingly… predicted that Pope Francis would sign his new encyclical at the UN.  Francis does,...

Last night, in a particularly refreshing moment of candor, Barbara Walters shared her disillusion over the ObamaCare failure. During an interview with Piers Morgan, she was asked why President Obama didn’t live up to his hype. This is a question that would not need to be directed at any conservative, because every conservative knew from the beginning that he wouldn’t live up to his hype. “He made so many promises,” Walters said. “We thought that he was going to be I shouldn’t...

    When the radicals start defending “standards,” that’s when you have to become suspicious—of the standards. That is the case with Obama’s federalized education plan called Common Core. Perhaps there is no clearer sign than when Mother Jones mocks alarms raised about Common Core’s national tests and student data tracking that will eliminate local control, and effectively, private and home schooling. When Linda Darling-Hammond, close pal of Bill Ayers, is in charge of developing tests, beware! As I noted in my “Dissident Prof” post, the defenders of Common Core need to look at the reality, look at the money trail, look...

The UN is pushing member nations to adopt something they call UN resolution 16/18. This is a resolution- proposed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which is made up of 56 Islamic states- which would criminalize "hate speech" targeting Muslims. This wholly un-Constitutional proposal was first floated in the aftermath of 9/11 amid fears...

    The U.S. has caused more global warming than any other country. Here’s how the Earth will get its revenge.Last year, we learned what is probably the worst global warming news yet — that we may have irrevocably destabilized the massive ice sheet of West Antarctica, which contains the equivalent of nearly 11 feet of sea level rise. The rate of West Antarctic ice loss has been ominously increasing, and there are fears that if too much goes, the slow and long-term process of ice sheet disintegration could accelerate. Humans have a hard time conceiving of the incredible scale of an...

    The White House Thursday was officially declared a “Laughingstock” and will be demolished by the Department of Interior within a month, officials said today. The proximate cause of the declaration was the White House decision to take the presidency to a brand new low, inviting in three absurdly unqualified and generally ridiculous people to interview the president of the United States. In what the White House no doubt concluded was a brilliant stunt that would allow President Obama to widely distribute his message unimpeded by tough questions and annoying follow ups, Obama aides enlisted three people who have built a...

Barack Obama is declaring war on methane. It’s hard to tell how popular it will be. Most Americans worry more about the high BS levels emanating from the White House than they are flatulence from cows. The goal Obama is putting forth is cutting cow flatulence by the dairy industry by 25% by the year 2020. Just how they plan to cut it remains a mystery. Perhaps they...

    A middle school in suburban Boston clandestinely scheduled an assembly to introduce and recruit students to the school’s new “gay-straight alliance” club -- without parental notification. But after MassResistance intervened, the school relented and notified parents about the time and nature of the assembly. The school later told a parent that they were using the new “anti-bullying” laws as a reason for bringing the programming to the school. As MassResistance recently reported, a major push of the national LGBT movement is to put “Gay Straight Alliance” clubs (GSAs) into middle schools, targeting younger students (ages 11-13). These GSAs provide a...

    Students across the United States are getting a taste of progressivism. And it doesn’t seem to please their palates. The implementation of Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity lunch standards is encountering backlash from students and school administrators across the country. The program seems to have taught them a valuable lesson in the realities of progressivism -- that when American voters give up power to busy-body progressives, the result is more control over their lives and the loss of individual liberties. They responded to this newfound reality with boycotts, social media angst, and filled trash cans instead of filled bellies.According to the Government...

    Whether Muhammad is a prophet is a matter of faith, not fact.In all the coverage of the barbaric terror attacks in Paris Wednesday, one fact of the story kept getting repeated in a curious way on network news, cable news, and in most mainstream publications. They kept saying, “Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.” Do you see it? You probably have become so used to it you don’t even notice anymore. But it’s strange, isn’t it? Why on earth do the news media continue to proclaim Muhammad as a prophet? Isn’t “prophet,” in this context, a subjective modifier?...

    If all you knew about racial violence came from the protestors at a Manhattan Sunday brunch, you would know that black people are victims of relentless white violence. In the real world, black mob violence and black-on-white crime are astronomically out of proportion. Especially in schools. Especially directed at teachers. Especially this week in Monroe, Yonkers, Little Rock, and Buffalo. Let’s start in Monroe, Louisiana. Facebook videographer “Tanglewood Hard Hitta” transports us into the middle of a few dozen black teenage girls fighting and screaming. Teacher’s aide David Payne was trying to break it up when Ryan Marquez Gix took...

    The Coming Republican Failure On Immigration BY BYRON YORK | JANUARY 11, 2015 Republicans in Congress are nearly unanimous in opposing President Obama's unilateral executive action on immigration. Nearly all want Congress to overturn the president's edict. But how to do it? Republicans have two basic options, and as the time to act nears, it appears they are preparing to choose the one more likely to fail. The first option is to pass a brief, simple bill that denies funding for the implementation of Obama's action, as announced last Nov. 20 and as outlined in memoranda from both the Department...

    OBAMA: MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER ONE OF THE PRETTIEST SOUNDS ON EARTH By: Connie Hair 8/19/2010 A new poll out Thursday from the Pew Research Center shows nearly one in five Americans believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim. From the link: A new national survey by the Pew Research Center finds that nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) now say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009. Only about one-third of adults (34%) say Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48% in 2009. Fully 43% say they do not know what Obama’s religion is. The survey was...

    January 11, 2015 Je Suis Sick and Tired of Cant By Clarice Feldman Millions of pixels gave their lives this week in lame efforts to explain the horrid slaughter of innocents in France, most of it pure cant by cowardly journalists, uninformed politicians offering up theological views on Islam, and self-described experts on terrorism who blame it on everything from Israel to the West’s defense against such attacks. Liberal Hypocrisy on Free Speech and Freedom of the Press Count me in the camp with Matthew Continetti, who gives countless examples of liberal hypocrisy about free speech including the following examples:...

    Do you get it now, France? Do you get it now, Angela Merkel? Do you get it now, President Obama? Do you get it now, America? I would propose that in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo Massacre, that same question should be put to all the leaders of Europe and America who have bent over backwards to make the world safe for Islamic terrorists. But unfortunately the answer would be the same from most of them. Take this stupefying comment from French President Francois Hollande after the two hostage crises ended on Friday: “[W]e must demonstrate our determination to...

    FULL TITLE: French People Put Bomb Right Next To Mosque, And Detonate The Explosion (PEOPLE ARE GETTING ENRAGED AT ISLAM) It looks like people in France are getting very enraged at Islam on account of the recent massacre of 12 people in France, and also of course for all the other many acts of violence that have occurred in the country. A bomb erupted right next to a mosque, as we read in one report: An explosion took place at a kebab restaurant near a mosque in Villefranche-sur-Saone, eastern France, 20 Minutes newspaper reported Thursday, citing a police source. According...

Mike Lee, R-Utah, and others in the conservative grass-roots movement fought the new health care law. … “I think I would have taken a different approach.” (SNIP) On Tuesday, Love, along with the entire incoming class of Republican congressbimbos, voted to reelect John Boehner as Speaker… Rep.
