Here we go… via Fox News: A concealed handgun training class envisioned by former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle before his death drew hundreds of educators to a Texas school auditorium Saturday. More than 700 teachers and administrators attended the all-day session on gun laws and safety at Kennedale High School in Dallas-Fort Worth area, The Dallas Morning [...]
Here’s a point I’ve been making for some time, now…. as expressed by Terry A. Hurlbut at the site Conservative News and Views: Everyone remembers the anti-propaganda campaign that followed: “Bush Lied; People Died!”, “General Betray-Us,” et cetera ad nauseam. A few voices, most notably that of Sean Hannity, insisted that Saddam Hussein did have WMD, [...]
Some current polling, and what it means as regards the election… and it’s an angle I see nobody else exploring. The poll in question is pointed to by Dan Halper, over at The Weekly Standard… and their shocking ignorance of what the poll says about the candidate Kristol and company backed, speaks volumes. A new [...]
About that 2007 Obama Hamptons Video… Here it is. I should warn you, that the draw on the servers at the Daily Caller is apparently quite high. I’d be interested in seeing how many millions have seen the vid. I’d also give a lemon cookie for a peek at their security log. I’m willing [...]
At some point during this next week, you’re going to hear one of the Democrats, either Obama or Biden mouth the words “Two wars we didn’t pay for”. Likely at the debates scheduled for this week, but outside those venues as well. After all, this is a mantra they’ve been chanting for the last four [...]
What we have additionally in the case of Obama, this time, is a case of liberals outright lying to us to cover their own backsides. Not only is Obama foreign policy a failure, in much the same way and for the same reasons that Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy was a failure, but now Mr. Obama and his people have been caught flat out lying to the American people in a feeble attempt to cover the failure of their worldview and their foreign policy.
I suggest that if the foreign policy failures themselves were not enough to remove Obama from office as they were in the case of Jimmy Carter, Lying about it certainly should be.
I’ve been saying it now for a decade and more… Get a real conservative in the lead role of a presidential election and there will be no stopping them. Of course, the usual suspects pooh-pooh that concept, saying a conservative has no chance up against a “moderate”… like John McCain, for example. That real conservatives [...]
South Plainfield,NJ== I started last night, to get a jump on several things, including a freak snowstorm currently screwing up traffic in western NY. I’ve started cleaning up my truck for the summer. It’s already starting to pay off. It’s already looking pretty good, though with the snow this week, I’ll have some catch up [...]
Much ado, from Toby Harnden,Telegraph(UK): The surf may have told a story but so too did the sight behind the reporter of people chatting and ambling along the sea front and just goofing around. There was a man in a t-shirt, a woman waving her arms and then walking backwards. Then someone on a bicycle [...]
Usama BinLaden is reportedly dead tonight, and apparently the US has his body. He was killed in action against a mansion outside Islamabad, according to reports. Good news, certainly, but we need to consider this carefully. First, a man who dies in a mansion isn’t a martyr. Sorry, he’s just not. There’s another point to [...]
Christina-Taylor Green, from Stephanie Innes, Arizona Daily Star: Aspiring politician Christina-Taylor Green was born in the midst of tragedy on Sept. 11, 2001, and died Saturday morning while trying to meet Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The strong-willed 9-year-old third-grader had gone to meet Giffords with a neighbor when she was shot. She died later at University [...]
Senator Fred Thompson Twitters today: Has there EVER been a bipartisan deal with Democrats that didn’t involve spending great big piles of money? http://bit.ly/fV50r9 #ftrs #tcot The answer of course is a resounding “No”, which is why, by its very definition of such deals, are anything but a beneficial process. But let’s look closely at [...]
I have to give Bruce McQuain credit. He writes, today: I know this comes as a shock – shock I tell you – but the left is just in a tizzy today about the GOP Senate caucus’s unanimous decision not to allow anything to go forward in the Senate’s lame duck session until the tax [...]
Over at OTB, James Joyner looks at the current wave of reports surrounding Tom Delay: Tom DeLay, the poster boy for everything that was wrong with the last Republican majority in the House, has been found guilty of money laundering. NYT (“Ex-House Leader DeLay Found Guilty in Texas Case“): Tom DeLay, one of the most [...]
Doug Mataconis over at OTB, is commenting on the Anti-Palin backlash going on, and seems to me quite willing to be part of that backlash. I’ve already made note since the elections of reports of growing concern about Palin inside the GOP, as well as comments by the likes of Karl Rove that Palin is [...]
