Gun Control Folly

Posted · Add Comment

Yesterday morning, Vester Flanagan approached two of his former colleagues as they did a live report for the morning news. He shot and killed Alison Parker and Adam Ward in cold blood. This has led to the usual calls for more gun control and “common sense gun regulations” to keep firearms out of the hands of […]

True, but conservative

If you read any of the critics of the self-appointed fact-checkers at Politifraud, you’ll realize that the media organization is far from the unbiased referee it pretends to be. It’s a left-wing media organization through and through. One that’s actually worse that most at suppressing its biases. Today’s case in point is a Politifact Georgia “fact-check” […]

Chuck Schumer is right on the Iran Deal

As a general rule, it’s hard to go wrong taking the opposite position of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer on just about any subject of public import. Gun-control, healthcare, government spending, whatever, find out which side Schumer is on and choose the other. Which brings us to eight words I never thought I’d say or […]

The Center for Medical Progress has released three videos over the past few weeks featuring some pretty grotesque stuff. As if the violence and horror of abortion itself wasn’t enough, Planned Parenthood appears to be adjusting the procedure so as to recover as many intact fetal organs so they can be sold to companies like […]

Clinton, Rubio and the media

For his first few years at The New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman was my punching bag. His dishonest, hack columns were perfect material for easy rabbit punches that had a devastating effect. My takedowns of his dishonest columns received widespread notice in a variety of national publications and in conservative Washington circles. Then the Times […]

Ignoring the news

Posted · Add Comment

I follow National Journal columnist and former AP White House correspondent Ron Fournier on Twitter. Mainly for the entertainment value of a mainstream journalist attempting to keep up the façade that he’s an unbiased purveyor of truth holding all sides accountable. This morning, Tom Anderson responded to one of Fournier’s tweets noting the political sideshow that […]

Major Garrett’s last question of the Obama presidency

Posted · Add Comment

CBS News’ Major Garrett had a question for President Obama at this morning’s news conference. It’s his last question of the Obama pressidency. For one brief moment, President Obama knew what it was like to be treated like a Republican politician…and he didn’t like it. *Update* And the palace guard strikes back! Science-denier Bill Maher […]

Politifraud is Mostly Useless

Posted · Add Comment

The fact-check itself is interesting only in that it is an example of a Politifraud admission against interest. What I want to draw attention to is the Editor’s note as evidence that Politifraud is Mostly Useless. Really? I’m trying to understand exactly how ignorant of the world you have to be not to know that […]

Media bias illustrated

Posted · Add Comment

Over the weekend, the Associated Press once again demonstrated that 99 percent of journalists (visual and otherwise) give the other 1 percent a bad name. Photographer Charlie Neibergall and, one would presume a photo editor, sent a series of photos like this one over the AP wire. This from the same AP that regularly transmitted […]

Tragedy in South Carolina

A mentally deranged young man (who will receive no notoriety by having his name mentioned here) went into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Wednesday night and shot an killed 9 people. This prompted the usual calls from the usual callers for more “common sense” gun regulations. I do not know how much longer we can […]
