The rest of the story

The New Republic appears to still be on their August recess hide-in-a-hole and are, at last report, still standing by their since-discredited Pvt. Scott Thomas Beauchamp. Author and reporter Richard Miniter has what may be the most in-depth account of the TNR/Beauchamp fiasco over at Pajamas Media. Among a string of disturbing revelations is this: […]

John Edwards is not stupid

But I hold open the possibility that I'm wrong. For the past 20+ years, al least, the media and many Democrat-partisans have prided themselves on their intellectual superiority. Ronald Reagan was an "amiable dunce." George W. Bush is just plain stupid. For some reason that I'm sure is found in some elementary psychology book somewhere, […]

He's better than you

San Diego-are Rep. Bob "The Crusher" Filner has joined the long list of politicians who think that all the laws they pass apply only to the little people and not themselves. Filner (D-Calif.), the chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee, has been charged with assault and battery of a United Airlines employee after he allegedly […]

They can do more

There was quite a bit of brouhaha last week when computer science grad student Virgil Griffith created a program which allowed users to correlate changes made to wikipedia and who owns the computer which made the changes. For the left side of the blogosphere, the outrage was directed towards corporations like Wal-Mart that edited their […]

Media bias 101

No one should be surprised. When presidential adviser Karl Rove announced last week that he would be leaving at the end of August, people attending the news (not editorial board) meeting of the Seattle Times cheered. Don't think that this was the only newsroom where this sort of thing happened. It may not have happened […]

What pardons are for

Richard Paey is serving a 25 year sentence in Florida for possessing 100 Percocet pills which he used to dull the chronic pain with which he lives. Two years into Paey's 25 year sentence you could see his feet twisted, his hands trembling and his body failing. An old car accident ruined his spine and […]

Two Americas

If there really are two Americas, John Edwards lives in the one that you and I aren't allowed in. This story's a little stale, but it's illustrative of a larger point that you don't want to lose sight of: Whether they're liberal or conservative, every single person running for president is "a better person" than […]

Where we stand

For those of you who haven't been following The New Repbulic's "Shock Troops" fiasco closely. When last we left what was once a semi-respected political magazine, they claimed their man in Baghdad was being prevented from contacting them because of the Army's investigation. This past weekend, The Weekly Standard was able to confirm that that […]

More housecleaning needed

A few weeks ago I mentioned the case of two seventh-grade boys who were charged with 10 sex crimes for slapping girls on the butt -- including five which, if they were convicted, would require them to register as sex offenders. After tons of outrage, five felony sex abuse charges were first reduced to misdemeanors […]

Bill Plante's explanation

The New York Observer called CBS "newsman" Bill Plante to ask him about his comment after the announcement of the departure of Karl Rove (which I lambasted earlier, with video): "If he’s so smart, how come you lost Congress?" Plante's explanation: Reached by phone at his home in Washington D.C. on Monday night, Mr. Plante […]

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.
