Honoring a bigot

The Society for Professional Journalists is considering whether or not to remove notorious anti-Semite Helen Thomas’ name from the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its executive committee meeting this weekend. The SPJ’s magazine, Quill, has published pro and con letters on the subject and I wanted to draw attention to Lloyd Weston’s defense of keeping […]

Wikileaks roundup

A couple of points on the latest round of Wikileaks disclosures: PFC Bradley Manning is apparently the source of most, if not all, of the material Wikileaks has published – including documents on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that has endangered the lives of civilians who’ve helped U.S. and NATO troops in those countries. Manning […]

Oceana has never been at war with Eastasia

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met at the White House today for U.S.-sponsored peace talks. You can call me a realist; the talks will fail. The Israelis will be lucky only if these latest round of “talks” don’t result in a third intifada. Why do I say this? Because there […]

Your stupid, lying eyes

Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu finally got the treatment at the White House that the U.S. usually gives to its friends. When Netanyahu was last at the White House, the United States’ best ally in the Middle East was denied a press conference, photo op and even a handshake and a meal as […]

On foreign policy

The big foreign policy news of the day was the 12-2 vote in the U.N. Security Council to place sanctions on Iran that are neither “crippling” nor “have bite,” but are instead little more than “annoying flies.” That we’ve waited 18 months to get this would be laughable if the result wasn’t that Iran is […]

Blood is thicker than lots of money

Former President Jimmy Carter, author of the excreble “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” has had a conversion experience. Former President Jimmy Carter apologized for any words or deeds that may have upset the Jewish community in an open letter meant to improve an often-tense relationship. He said he was offering an Al Het, a prayer said […]

Obama to European allies: Drop dead

President Obama sent out his flack, Robert Gibbs, today to announce that the U.S. would be abandoning its plans to construct limited ground-based missile defenses in Poland and the Czech Republic. The missile defense system was targeted at preventing Iran from using its nascent nuclear capability from terrorizing our allies in Europe. (Let’s leave the […]

Obama and Israel

I hate to say it, but it should come as no surprise to anyone that the man who sat in the pews at Jeremiah Wright’s church for two decades would have imbibed some of the anti-Semitism that was preached from the pulpit. In this, President Barack Obama follows the lead of noted useful idiot and […]

People Obama can do business with

Here’s another reality check for those who think that the current Iranian regime is one we should be reaching out to. Apparently it’s against the law in the Islamic Republic to execute a virgin – the mullahs in Iran know how to fix that. Explaining how he had come to join the volunteer Basiji forces, […]

Weenie diplomacy

Another bit that came out of today's press conference was President Obama's refusal to rescind invitations to Iran's diplomats across the globe to July 4 celebrations at U.S. embassies -- aptly described as "weenie diplomacy." All of this, of course, raises a major issue: Are the hot dogs real, American-style hot dogs which are typically […]

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this. https://twitter.com/ryandbusse/status/1450623648067248128

Ryan Busse@ryandbusse

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book. http://www.ryanbusseauthor.com
