American legal "thought" leads the way

During the past few years one of the "hot" topics of discussion in the African-American community has been the possibility of the federal government paying reparations to the descendants of slaves. It is, of course, ridiculous to demand payment from people who never owned slaves to people who were never slaves themselves. But this creative […]

Bad, bad BBC

Josh Chafetz responds to critics of his Weekly Standard piece here. The Economist also finds BBC's reporting (specifically that of their "star" reporter Andrew Gilligan) to be wanting. The BBC management is also taken to task. Remember guys, it's the cover-up that gets you.

Read it and weep

Social Security is going to tank, and the politicians continue to dither. With each passing year the cure becomes more fiscally painful. From Pete du Pont's Wall Street Journal column: Unless something is done, the Social Security Administration will have no choice but to cut benefits. The impact of those reductions will start falling on […]

Blame America First

It's a rare day when a New York Times op-ed columnist is outdone by one here at the San Diego Union-Tribune, but James Goldsborough has accomplished this difficult mission. I read the Times' Bob Herbert column last night, knowing well that I would get another quagmire diatribe because of this week's terrorist bombing of the […]

Roadmap to nowhere II

Once again, the death cult commonly known as "Palestinians," has forsaken their desire for their own state in order to murder Jews. Tuesday evening, a murderous racist strapped a bomb to his body, along with bits of metal, and walked onto a bus and detonated himself -- killing 20 (so far) and wounding more than […]

Mini-review: "Adaptation"

I finally saw the critically-acclaimed movie on DVD the other night. I concur with the selection of Chris Cooper for the Academy Award for best supporting actor. He did an excellent job as an eccentric orchid thief. Nicholas Cage also did a good job playing dual roles of twin brothers. I can understand the pain […]

City leaders get clue

The city of Oceanside has settled a lawsuit brought by four people arrested for preaching on city streets. Under the terms of a compromise, Willis said, the city agreed in federal court in San Diego to have a judgment entered against it but admitted no fault. Oceanside police arrested the men as they preached to […]

People in glass houses...

...shouldn't be throwing stones. Fox News reported yesterday (even though the Web dispatch is datelined today) that liberal "comedian" Al Franken is apologizing to Attorney General John Ashcroft. Why? Well, it appears Franken has a little problem with the "truth." Comedian and left-wing activist Al Franken has apologized in writing to Attorney General John Ashcroft […]

On the ground in Iraq

The Wall Street Journal publishes a column by Lance Cpl. John R. Guardiano, a Marine serving in Al Hillah, Iraq. Guardiano's experience is contrary to what most of the mainstream media would have us believe about what's going on in Iraq. In fact, there is another Iraq that the media virtually ignore. It is guarded […]

Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal.

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
