  • Me & Thornberry Annoy an Australian Leftist on Ferguson

    11/28/2014 2:49:28 AM PST · by Cincinatus' Wife
    Larry Thornberry and I have both annoyed an Australian leftist academic with our respective commentary on the events in Ferguson. Binoy Kampmark, who teaches at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, wrote a piece "analyzing" conservative commentary in the wake of the grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson. Kampmark has been associated with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and unsuccessfully ran for the Australian Senate under the Wikileaks Party banner. In addition to taking Larry and I to task, Kampmark also criticizes NRO's Rich Lowry and Ian Tuttle. Here is what Kampmark writes about Thornberry and me: [must read...

    The Washington Post's Answer Sheet ^ | November 27, 2014 | Valerie Strauss
    On Nov. 25th, a grand jury in Ferguson voted not to indict a white police officer, Darren Wilson, in the shooting of an unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, last August in a case that has stirred civil unrest and accusations of racism by white law enforcement officials. The next day, Steve Singer, a teacher in suburban Pittsburgh went to school and realized that he could not carry on as usual but that he had to address what was transpiring in Missouri. This is his account of what happened that day. Singer is a husband, father, blogger and education advocate who teaches...

    FIVE WAYS CONGRESS SHOULD RESPOND TO OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY Don’t get mad. Don’t get even. Get nasty. By Scott McKay – 11.25.14 In the aftermath of Thursday’s debacle of a speech, in which our president crossed a Rubicon of his own making and transformed himself into a tin-pot ruler of Third World quality, the incoming GOP Senate majority and the soon-to-expand Republican House majority are faced with a stiff challenge as the current Congress ends and the new one is sworn in next year. What Obama has done—asserting the right to legalize millions of trespassers and squatters against the expressed...

    The Department of Defense will no longer call captured terrorists "unlawful combatants," but will now refer to these people as "unprivileged enemies." In a joint publication released this month, terrorists captured and detained by the United States will no longer be called "unlawful combatants," which is now apparently an obsolete term. Instead, a more polically correct term, "unprivileged enemies," has been chosen. The manual explains, "Belligerent. In general, a person who is engaged in hostilities against the US or its multinational partners during an armed conflict. The term belligerent includes both privileged belligerent and unprivileged enemy belligerent." It also includes...

    I actively look for and monitor defensive uses of firarms.   While some defensive uses of firarms are common, such as driving off intruders from a home, others such as defense against a grizzly bear, are rare.  They tend to stand out when they happen.   I missed this one, even though it did get some coverage in 2013.  The actual defense occurred two years ago in November of 2012. It is especially interesting because both bear spray and bullets were used.  The only other one that I recall happened this year. The bear was killed by the gunfire, dropping, literally...

    After the fall of the Soviet Union Moscow’s spokesmen convinced the world that Russia was weak and no longer a threat to anyone. With a disintegrated army, and a post-communist policy, Russia appeared in the guise of the West’s “partner.” When a Soviet expert on America, Georgi Arbatov, said in 1988 that the Soviet’s “major secret weapon” was to deprive America of its enemy he was perfectly serious. Openness and friendship were, quite literally, weapons in a new kind of war. Here secrecy was not guaranteed by silence or discretion, but by the West’s willingness to be deceived. Arbatov could...

    The Democratic Party has lost big time in the nearly concluded 2014 Congressional elections. Only Louisiana’s runoff election between Mary Landrieu (D) and Bill Cassidy (R) remains undecided. Cassidy is going to win. Even the Democratic Party realizes this and has decided not to spend any more money on her campaign. This means that Republicans will have 54 Senators as compared to 45 in the outgoing Senate. Republicans also increased the number of House Reps by at least 12 to 244 and the number of Governors by two to 31. Before the elections, Obama had said, ‘Make no mistake. My...

    Kobane symbolizes Turkish duplicity “A martyred town, a symbolic town” is the poignant description of Kobane, by French President Francois Hollande. He stated that “all countries concerned” should be providing weapons to the Kobane defenders and pointedly stated as bluntly as any diplomatic language can , that “Turkey must absolutely open its border.” If Kobane is a symbol in Hollande’s words, then what did Hollande think it symbolic of? Kobane is an encircled Syrian Kurdish city of 160,000 inhabitants just inside the Syrian border from Turkey and entrenched on three sides by the well-equipped ISIS army that has promised the...

    How Obama’s amnesty will give non-citizen law-breakers access to a “wide array” of programs — and an advantage in the job market. Apparently President Obama’s unilateral decision to grant de facto amnesty to five million illegal aliens was insufficiently outrageous. On Tuesday, a White House official told the Washington Post that many illegals now protected from deportation will be eligible to receive a “wide array” of government benefits, including Social Security and Medicare. The admission verifies that, once again, Americans are forced to endure another lie perpetrated by the president. When he announced his executive action last Thursday, Obama was...

    Deirdre Cooper Owens, a "Queens College, CUNY" professor of History, has taken to twitter to voice her opinions on the decision of a grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Dr. Owens states that Darren Wilson represents "racist, repressive capitalism" and that it is impossible for African Americans to receive justice in the United States. Professor Owens oddly does not mention any specifics of the case, or the mountain of evidence that shows that Brown was, in fact, the aggressor in his confrontation with Wilson. Instead, Owens denounces the United States and...

    President Obama has repeatedly stated that he was not changing the law by allowing five million illegal immigrants to stay in the United States, and that to do so would be both illegal and unconstitutional. Instead, he has claimed that he is using “prosecutorial discretion” to allow those people to stay. He promised that he did not change the law, and that he was certain that he did not. Yesterday, he admitted the truth in a speech in front of illegal aliens. In response to a heckler, the President became angry and in response told him that he didn’t realize...

Teaching them the skills needed for safe sex is at least as critical a part of our job as teaching them how to read.” “Sex is a topic of universal interest to students,” McCaffrey asserted. “What we teach them about this topic will...

It’s nice to see the President’s narcissism never takes a break. Perhaps the highlight of his comments from yesterday is when he declared that he wouldn’t comment on a local situation such as Ferguson because it isn’t the job of the President to comment on ongoing investigation of specific cases. Maybe the President has finally learned his lesson after ‘the cop acted stupidly’ and...

    The very fact that people think they are justified in committing criminal acts just because they are not happy with a verdict which any person with a moderately-endowed brain can recognise as entirely reasonable and based on physical evidence shows how these people are the least capable of judging that verdict. They are criminals. They find any excuse for their antisocial and violent behaviour. Of course they side with their fellow delinquent Michael Brown against the man who represents the law, Officer Darren Wilson. And the race-industry leaders, the media and politicians, who have kept telling us for decades...

    Here is some legitimate overreach when it comes to prosecuting sexual abuse:New Jersey state Assemblyman Troy Singleton has drafted a "rape by fraud" bill that would make it illegal to lie your way into someone's pants. From NJ.com:Earlier this month,state Assemblyman Troy Singleton(D-Burlington) introduced the bill(A3908),which would create the crime of “sexual assault by fraud,” which it defines as “an act of sexual penetration to which a person has given consent because the actor has misrepresented the purpose of the act or has represented he is someone he is not.”The bill was inspired by the case of Mischele Lewis, who...

    We hear very little about the treatment of Christians in Israel. Among the terrible persecution that Christians face in Muslim countries in the Middle East and elsewhere, Israel is usually portrayed as a beacon of tolerance where Christians are free to follow their faith without fear of being killed. Everything is relative. Looking at what happens in Israel's neighbouring countries, where Christians are forced to convert to Islam, humiliate themselves by becoming second-class citizens and paying the extortionist jizya tax, die or flee, Israel may indeed seem a good place for them to live. Israel has no policy of...

    What makes a tyrant? Dictionary.com defines tyrant thus: A sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly. In 1776 the 13 American colonies declared independence from just such a tyrant. Eleven years later the same 13 states came together to write a Constitution that was specifically crafted to thwart the emergence of a new tyrant. The laws were to be written in Congress, where discussion, debate and competing factions would keep them from consistently favoring one constituency over another. In turn those laws were to be executed by the President whose constituency was the whole country. That separation...

    Now that Barack Obama has granted millions of illegal aliens’ amnesty and stretched our social systems to the point of collapse the question becomes: How do we respond? First we need to determine who “we” are. We know Obama’s allies in the Republican Establishment (GOPe) are not on America’s side and although this complicates our task, it does not make it impossible. There are some things we could do, such as; mass deportations; withholding funds for Obama’s actions and/or blocking them with a government shutdown or even bringing impeachment proceedings against him. Each of these steps has merit, but each...

    Immediately upon hearing of Secretary Hagel's decision to resign, President Obama began His search for the best available replacement. Today, He announced His eagerly awaited choice for a successor. I have too many personal problems. Statement of President Obama: My fellow Americans, as you are well aware, I pledged soon after taking office in 2009 that My administration would be the most transparent ever. In keeping with My solemn vow, I want to tell you this evening about My most important actions over the past few days, and how I decided to take them, to make our already exceptional national security even better. A few days ago, My very close personal friend and scapegoat Republican...

    The South Orange-Maplewood School District in New Jersey was told by the US Department of Education that the racial imbalance in its Advance Placement (AP) courses was discriminatory because minorities are under represented among the students enrolled in these classes. AP courses are intended for college-bound graduates and typically entail heavier workloads and more difficult assignments. US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan brushed aside arguments relying on student interest and ability as “insufficient to overcome the goal of racial equality. For the school to say that minorities are over represented on the school’s athletic teams and that somehow counterbalances their...

    Congress must stop Obama's "Get Out of Jail Card" and "Pass Go, Collect Welfare" schemes. Impeach the President! Should U.S. taxpayers be expected to finance millions of the 12 million uneducated, unskilled, and often un-American illegal immigrants? I can defend the position that we should not finance legal immigrants? With Obama’s legalization of at least five million illegal aliens, he will turn America into a banana republic—without bananas. While many of the aliens covered are decent, hardworking people, many are not. I think this tragic immigration policy will create political, financial, and cultural anarchy. Since people from Mexico and South...
