  • WashPost's Sally Quinn Insists Selfish Sarah Palin Needs a 'Long, Long, Silent Retreat'

    NewsBusters ^ | July 21, 2014 | Tim Graham
    Sally Quinn founded the “On Faith” section of The Washington Post, and she’s shown a repeated pattern of loathing conservative Christians, especially Sarah Palin. In Saturday’s , she went there again, trashing Sarah Palin as selfishly ruining our political culture, insisting she recommends a “long long silent retreat for her.” Rather typically, Quinn was cooing over a feminist Buddhist lecturer named Tara Brach: Brach quotes the spiritual teacher Swami Satchidananda as saying that the difference between illness and wellness is the I in illness and the We in wellness. What has been happening in politics in Washington lately is symptomatic...

    Location of Till Dawn Bottle Club at 8205 Dale Mabry Highway In this unusual case in Tampa, Florida, little is reported about possible motivations; but we can make informed speculations.  The facts are this.   A patron of the Till Dawn Bottle Club was thrown out of the club at about 3:30 a.m. He drove off in a Dodge Challenger, and subsequently rear ended a GMC Yukon that was being driven by a visitor from Pennsylvannia, Alexander Sierra, 27.  Alexander was accompanied by his brother and girl friend. They followed the Challenger until its driver lost control and hit a...

    On Friday July 18, a Pro-Palestinian demonstration took place in Calgary. The organizer of this event was the University of Calgary student club “Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights” whose current president Ala’a Hamdan recently said “My body and soul are ready to fight and die,” and “This land will be proud that Palestinian babies are born men and women ready to spill their blood.” In a fictional battle hymn written to a son, Ms. Hamdan also wrote: “I will soak a koffiah with your blood and save it to show to your siblings ... I will be named the mother...

    Predictably, having so many terrorists in our midst - in addition to the danger - will have the consequence of more intrusion in our personal lives and more state power. From The Telegraph, "Emergency laws to monitor phone and internet records 'to stop terrorists'": Emergency laws will be brought in next week to force phone and internet companies to hold records of customers’ calls, texts and visits to websites. The fast-track measures are necessary to defend national security against the terrorist threat from Iraq and Syria, David Cameron said. The consequences of not acting are “grave”, the Prime Minister...

    So you want to write about poverty, joblessness, homelessness, and general misery in America. Let me give you some advice, and I'll cut right to the chase and be as blunt as possible. First, consider your audience. It’s white people. If you are trying to tell a sob story that ends in “we need more social services” most minorities are already on your side and the ones that aren’t have their own sources of information. You’re talking to mainstream white America, so you need to tailor your story to them. Start with a young white couple who has fallen on...

    Mark Begich is the Democrat Senator from Alaska because the Democrats smeared the good name and reputation of Ted Stevens, the Republican who held the seat until 2008. Stevens was savaged by the Democrat controlled media and criminally charged with being corrupt. Although he was pretty much cleared before the election, the people of Alaska decided “better safe than sorry.” In Begich they got worse not better and plenty to be sorry about. Begich delivered not for Alaskans but for Barack Obama and Harry Reid when he joined in the sneaky Christmas Eve passage of a bill the Senate Democrats...

    Why would an honest polling company ask Chris McDaniel’s supporters if they favored a second Civil War and if so, which side they would support? These are the questions one has to ask after reading Public Policy Polling’s (PPP) report on its survey of Mississippi voters on the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Republican Thad Cochran and Democrat challenger Travis Childers. What was the purpose of these questions? Who paid them to ask these questions and why? Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a Democrat polling firm based in Raleigh North Carolina.

The rhetoric of lecturing an under-duress Israel, a patently useless Obama rhetoric that will never stop Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from defending his own country; the Obama rhetoric of naming the over flooding of the southern US border with illegal aliens as a ‘humanitarian crisis’, without mention that it was a crisis that originates with him; the rhetoric of throwing a safety net via executive order for the protection of all LGBTs that...

UWM professor W. Lee Hansen wrote about his concerns with the ridiculous politically correct policy late last week: “Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically...

    Not many people in Britain have followed the Hobby Lobby case, named after the American company that won an important battle for religious freedom against the bullying of the totalitarians - in this episode feminazis and supporters of state intervention in personal affairs. In this area the United States seems more progressive in the true, not socialist, sense, and less prepared to submit to cultural Marxism's oppressive demands. Hobby Lobby is a company owned by Christians. At issue was whether, according to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare, "closely held companies like Hobby Lobby could be...

Jenée Desmond-Harris: Thanks for your question. I thought about the issue of hotel toiletries when I was writing the Race Manners column that answered the question, “Is Using Lotion a Black Thing?” In my opinion, the tiny moisturizer that most hotels provide is very clearly not designed for those who want or need to use it on their entire body (read: most black people).

    In this strange incident, little is said about why the intruder tried to force his way into the shooters home.   All that we know is that the homeowner drove into his garage, and the intruder drove a car behind the homeowner to prevent the garage door from closing.  A verbal altercation followed, then warning shots were fired, then the  intruder was shot. The authorities are investigating the incident, which they say stems from the rather ambiguous term "road rage". From the marinscope.com: The homeowner, a 71-year-old man, drove into his garage, and the other man tried to drive in behind...

    The price of happiness depends a lot on where you live, according to a new report by the investment group Advisor Perspectives. The analysis is based on the now-famous work by Princeton researchers Daniel Kahneman and Angus Deaton, who found that higher incomes only make people happier to a point. Up to about $75,000 per year, the more a household earns, the happier people are. After that benchmark, however, additional income "buys life satisfaction but not happiness." The team separated these two issues by distinguishing fun from happiness. More money still leads people to have more life experiences and greater...

    World wide experience has established that when an area that has not had Muslims living in it begins to be flooded by Muslims, violence ensues. The rough progression of Muslim population growth and its correlation to violent attacks on non-Muslims starts when they reach a population percentage of about five percent. At that plateau they begin to stir and organize. Shortly thereafter they start to make demands on the non-Muslim population as if they have always been there and are a historically oppressed minority. They will begin to patrol the streets in seemingly aimless patterns which in reality are far...

With Israel under attack, Palestinian protesters in Paris, London and in North American cities like Chicago and Calgary took to the streets in clockwork fashion.

A British journalist who describes himself as a “liberal-lefty-pro-feminist” claims that politically conservative women are way more sexy than their left-wing counterparts. Writing in the London Spectator, Cosmo Landesman opines that right-wing women (and he specifically offered examples such as pundits Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter) are “super sexy” and that stereotypes and generalizations about conservative women in general being uptright or prudish are way out of date. He also argues that looks have nothing to do with it. Instead their attractiveness is about what he calls “a certain mindset and sensibility”...

Its purpose is to apprehend civilian women in Raqqa who do not follow the organization's strict brand of Sharia law, including a mandate that all women be fully covered in public and that they be accompanied by a male chaperone. "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law," says Abu Ahmad,...

In 2013, 44% of all military recruits came from the South, despite it having only 36% of the country’s 18-24 year-old civilian population. By contrast, the Northeast was the most underrepresented region of the country; only 14% of new enlistments came from this area, compared to 18% of its 18-24 year-old...

First time violators of the state’s new gun legislation face up to one year in prison. Yet a real life criminal who commits a felony while in violation of the law is subject to only 18 months. This makes an armed robber just 33% more worthy of punishment than the law abiding citizen who also happens to own a 20 round magazine. Disgraceful. Yet Colorado politicos couldn’t have been happier with their knee-jerk attempts to intimidate Centennial State gun owners...

It turns out that 12 out of 13 states that raised their minimum wage on January 1, 2013 are experiencing increases in employment. The report also states that the average change in employment for these 13 states is +.99% while the average change in employment in the remaining states is +.68%....

    I haven't seen this connection yet, but it seems to me that the current border invasion is Fast and Furious in reverse. At least in political terms. Has there ever been an administration that foments international tensions in pursuit of its domestic agenda? In Fast and Furious guns were run to Mexico with the assumption that these guns would come back to kill Americans. Then the Left would call for more legislation to control weapons in the USA and restrict 2nd Amendment rights. Children were killed in Mexico with these guns as was one of our border agents, Brian Terry....

    The civil rights activist is going after the social media giant over diversity concerns. This follows weeks of criticism aimed at the lack of minorities at tech companies.The last few weeks have been filled with criticism regarding the lack of minorities working at tech companies, mainly at Google, Facebook and Twitter. Now, Rev. Jesse Jackson has launched a petition demanding that Twitter reveal its employment diversity reports publicly. Jackson wants this information available to show the world what percentage of the company’s workforce is made up of minorities. This has been a sensitive issue recently for many, especially after it...

    Lest we forget, it was 55 years ago ( July 18, 1969 ) that Ted Kennedy crawled and slimed his way to land and Armstrong landed on the moon ( July 20th). Progressives should not be allowed to forget the anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the real war on women. A blogger named Brian Cates on Twitchy has given a riveting accounting of the hour by hour actions of the infamous and duplicitous Ted Kennedy. At the end of the blog a poster calling himself the DivingPetrel imagined how an Oliver Stone Hollywood would re-enact the...

    Do you know that the verdict in this case actually limited the Court’s power? Following the loss of the presidency and Congress in the election of 1800, the lame-duck Federalist Congress enacted the Judiciary Act of February 3, 1801, creating 58 new federal judgeships and new circuit courts. Two weeks later, Congress created 42 justices of the peace in the District of Columbia. Chief Justice Oliver Ellsworth resigned, and President John Adams named Secretary of State John Marshall to replace him. The judicial commissions were signed by President Adams, and the Seal of the United States affixed by the Secretary...

    The first and second amendments of the Bill of Rights are essential for supporting each other.   The first amendment is essential to support the second, while the second amendment provides the means to protect the first.   It is clear that the open carry of firearms is itself a strong political message.   Openly carrying a gun is protected political speech. In Texas, open carry activists have been pushing hard to have the right to open carry modern handguns restored.   It was lost during reconstruction when the carpet bagger government rewrote the state constitution.   Open carry activists have participated in hundreds,...

    Suspects who called the Police Florida recently passed a law making it harder to prosecute people who are defending themselves with firearms.   The law builds on a trend started with an Arizona law that codified the defensive display of a firearm as legal. The Arizona law had been prompted by criminals use of the criminal justice system to punish people who had foiled their crimes by displaying a firearm in self defense. This Oregon case, though it did not receive official sanction, shows how criminals attempt to use, or use, the criminal justice system to their advantage. In the...
  • Downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 a story of claims and counterclaims

    Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile (SAM) over Grabovo, Ukraine and crashed near the Russian border killing all 298 souls on board. The national/political identity of the SAM battery that attacked the commercial airliner is unknown at the time of writing. The finger pointing, accusations and conspiracy theories are currently noise disguising the truth. Even the so-called recording of pro-Russian separatists is of questionable origin. Russian military intelligence would be unbelievably—that is, implausibly–sloppy to permit discussion of a civilian shootdown over unencrypted communications. (1) The New York Times reports that two witnesses near Grabovo claim...

    As the sorry ramifications of situational morality play out on virtually a daily basis, many of us wonder where this all came from. With no hard edges on ANY concept these days, let alone good and evil, we observe the seeming paradox that with endless shades of gray comes not compromise, but more division! Of course, there is one thing on which we can all agree: money and debt. If I owed you $1000, you would consider yourself cheated unless I paid back every penny. There is a clear standard here. It’s the economy, stupid! Now throw into the mix...
