Dangerous journalists

Iowahawk has done a devastating satire on The New York Times' irresponsible story that ran last Sunday in the paper of record demonizing military veterans. The Times ran a sensationalistic article painting veterans as psychopathic killers but failed to do the basic statistics -- comparing veterans to the general population. It's pretty clear that military […]

Justice is served

The anti-military lawyer who was accused of keying a Marine's car had his day in court on Friday. The plea bargain: 30 hours community service, one year probation, $600 to the Marine Semper Fi Fund and an admission of guilt. The last part is probably the one that's going to the guy in trouble with […]

The company you keep

The more I read about the new Democrat frontrunner for that party's nomination for president of the United States, the more convinced I become that he's little more than an empty vessel that a lot of people seem to pour their own hopes and dreams into. Barack Obama got some press this week after Washington […]

Sound science = Science I agree with

Viking Pundit notes that the Democrat presidential hopefuls are not above subordinating science when it comes in conflict with political advantage.

Ethically challenged

Last month, National Review's Ed Whelan exposed a conflict of interest problem for New York Times supreme court reporter Linda Greenhouse. To make a long story short, Greenhouse's husband, Eugene Fidell, had filed friend-of-the-court briefs on behalf of Gitmo detainees in the Boumedienne and Hamdan cases before the Supreme Court. Greenhouse had reported on those […]

Last Friday, Levant appeared before Alberta, Canada's "Human Rights Commission" to answer charges that he hurt the feelings of a couple of Muslims. He's uploaded videos of his interrogation to YouTube -- […]

Not good enough

In an interview Monday, Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs, said he was in favor of closing down the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. There are good reasons to shut down Gitmo, and there are bad reasons. Good reason: All terrorist detainees have been given a fair trial and a public […]

The Times and Treason

New York Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt addressed the decision by that paper to hire Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol to write a weekly column. Much of Hoyt's column is critical of the decision, but he doesn't go as far as the fever swamp left as to suggest that hiring Kristol was beyond the pale. […]

Feminists or Feminazis?

As a former subscriber to Ms. Magazine, I must say that I'm not much surprised that the magazine of 1960s feminism saw fit to reject the worlds most harmless ad. Ms. Magazine is apparently only in favor of acknowledging women's achievements as long as they aren't Jooooze! From the American Jewish Congress: When Director of […]

Barack Obama is black?

I had no idea! Actually, that's a lie. I did know that -- and I also know that as a conservative Republican, the color of Obama's skin matters not one whit as to whether or not I'd vote for or against him. Democrats, on the other hand, are apparently a bunch of bigots because Obama […]
