Leftists always love to posture. They feel good letting everybody know how awesome they are. They care for the poor, the needy, the oppressed, the downtrodden, the unlucky, the little guy. They know what’s best and they want to help, and they will let anyone that gets in their way have it. And when you are dealing with leftists run counties, the hubris and narcissism takes new meaning. That is, until it hits them in … Read more
Speaking of the decline of entertainment:
Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power.
The book, written by Rather’s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during
Ho hum, another station that I won’t watch;
It is a fact of American life that even though far fewer than half the adult population attend church on a weekly basis, atheism remains an outright taboo in many corners of the country.
As we discovered on a reporting trip to Virginia earlier, non-belief is something that many Americans are too afraid to even admit to their parents, friend and teachers. Many fear alienation from the
This morning the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit released its much awaited opinion in Halbig v. Burwell. In a 2-1 opinion, the Court held that the Internal Revenue Service regulation authorizing tax credits in federal exchanges was invalid. Judge Griffith, writing for the court, concluded, “the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges ‘established by the State.”
Admirable or pathetic, you decide;
Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.
Kessler quotes a supervisor informing a new agent: “You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in.”
Energizer, who is described as charming and friendly, sometimes brought cookies to
My post is about that crazy Uncle Ron Paul, but this morning I watched Obama’s tap dance in the Rose Garden, where he talked about accountability wrt the downed airline and mentioned the troubling news that the black boxes were absconded and hustled back to Russia. He wondered out loud what they had to hide. Naturally one has to snicker at any mention of accountablility, and as for hiding something, let’s see, 2 black boxes … Read more
There is no more feared an organization in this country, nay the world, than the IRS. I have had to deal with them and was all but told that you were guilty until you could prove beyond the shadow of a doubt otherwise. I won, but I paid an arm and a leg to get there, and never got the money back. Stories of people browbeaten by IRS tyrants abound. No mistake or omission is … Read more
The Brookings Institute came out with a study last week that looks at failures by the federal government. It concludes what we’ve talked about many times: that the federal government is fumbling the ball more and more often:
The federal government is failing now more than ever. That’s the conclusion of a unique taxonomy of federal ball-dropping just released by Paul C. Light, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.

We all know that guns are an evil talisman that makes people do bad things. Why crime-ridden cities would be completely safe if they just got rid of those darn guns. Take Chicago, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. If only the guns laws were stricter, Chicago would see a drop in crime as big as say … uh … wait … Detroit?
