A terrorist attack on Bastille Day in Nice, France has left at least 80 dead and more than 100 injured.

Anti-gun nuts

Tonight’s horrible terrorist attack in Nice, France, and last week’s murder of 5 Dallas cops by a black racist ties together some common themes that we’ve heard in the media in recent weeks from anti-gun nuts. First, no one who supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms sees it as a panacea. Having an armed citizenry […]

Journalism vs. Stenography

Posted · Add Comment

An article published yesterday by Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting is a textbook case of the differences between journalism vs. stenography. I discovered the article because one of the people I follow on Twitter is Andrew Donohue who used to run an alternative media website in San Diego called “Voice of San Diego.”  Donohue is […]

The Hacks at Politifact

Posted · Add Comment

The self-proclaimed fact-checkers at Politifact have really had a banner day today, publishing two flawed fact-checks that betray their partisan leanings. The hacks at Politifact aren’t even trying anymore. First, reporter Emma Hinchliffe and her editor Matt Schwartz go out of their way to find a way to cast doubt on the statement by Texas […]

Soft targets

CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem thinks that those of us calling for arming military recruiters are foolish. Stop w/ the “we need to harden soft targets by arming folks.” It’s dangerous talk. There will always be soft targets. We need to rethink 1/2 — Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) July 17, 2015 Force protection since military […]

Terrorism in Chattanooga

Posted · 1 Comment

Earlier today a scum-sucking bottom dweller assassinated four Marines in Chattanooga, Tenn. Make no mistake, this was terrorism. In the rush to fill airtime, CNN invited national security analyst Juliette Kayyem to offer words of wisdom complete and total idiocy. Ms. Kayyem has two points. #1: The Marines who were shot and killed aren’t allowed to carry […]

This week in George Orwell

I saw this last night on “Special Report” with Bret Baier on Fox News. It features ABC’s White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, but ABC didn’t find it newsworthy enough to broadcast. The White House has taken the position that Jordan should not do a deal with ISIS where they trade a convicted bomber participated in […]

What a hack looks like

Eleanor Clift is a regular talking head on the “McLaughlin Group” and can be counted on to parrot the left-wing talking points of the day. However, not even I would’ve guessed that she’d be willing to say this. “I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’” Clift said, using air quotes, “but […]

Pray for Boston

One of the big problems with 24-hour cable news is the need to fill 24-hours, or at least 18 hours of it. When something like yesterday’s despicable terror attack at the Boston Marathon occurs, while many people are at their best rushing to aid the injured, the media is often at its worst. It took […]

Lies Obama told me

Posted · Add Comment

At his press conference last week, President Obama defended the “honor” of his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice by challenging Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte that if they were angry that Rice was sent on five Sunday shows to peddle a demonstrable lie their beef was with him and not the ambassador. Shorter […]

Foggy Bottom, foggy thinking

Via My Pet Jawa comes this report on what the Democrat-run State Department is doing on behalf of the American people. An official from the U.S. State Department has called the Charlotte family of al-Qaida propagandist Samir Khan to offer the government’s condolences on his death in a U.S. drone attack last week in Yemen, […]
