Media asked to be even more respectful of Islamist sensitivities


Being  respectful toward the sensitivities of Islamists should be easy for the “legitimate” media. They are normally more than respectful toward the sensitivities of the Obama Administration.

Truth, lies and conspiracy theories


The Federal Government lies as a matter of policy and habit. Occasionally  “legitimate” media detect and dissect the lies, but they more often simply report them as true. The resultant “conspiracy theories” are often more believable than the Government lies … Continue reading

Bundy Ranch: the “truth” shall make you . . . ?


The reports, such as they are, from the Bundy Ranch have been confusing. The Feds have contributed to the dearth of verifiable information, suggesting that there are things it would be inconvenient for us to know. I don’t know what’s … Continue reading

Maria Corina Machado, a not-yet-arrested Venezuelan opposition leader, is well spoken, understands how to respond effectively to question and knows what she, the people  – and the opposition in general — want. Note: Apparently the video is not available in some … Continue reading

Why do the left generally support the Chavistas in Venezuela?


With three principal exceptions — Panamá, Colombia and Chile — Latin American governments are oriented toward the far left.  An article at Huff & Puff by a self-proclaimed leftist, Carlos González, argues than leftists should not automatically support dictators, even … Continue reading

The crisis in Venezuela broadens and deepens


As the day progresses, I expect there to be substantial activity in Venezuela. As I learn of it, updates will be provided here or through new posts. Few seem to know what to do. Perhaps Leopoldo Lopez does. According to … Continue reading

The Middle East Clusterduck and Obama – Kerry Myopia


The myopic focus on “horrible” Israel and “sadly deprived” Palestinians in Israel is a disasterous farce — for the entire Middle East region. Secretary Kerry has returned from Israel,”empty handed” again, but full of hope for change in which he can … Continue reading

Herd behavior, political correctness and our Republic


Groups of people often emulate flocks of sheep. Sheep are not politically correct, but political correctness appears to be a subset of herd behavior. In October of 2012 I wrote that Political Correctness is a Communicable Disease. Political correctness (also … Continue reading

Happy New Year, America! I hope, but optimism is difficult to summon.


Optimism is good and can often preserve sanity. However, excessive optimism led to disappointment in 2013 and worse seems likely in 2014. There are plenty of clowns, many of them in Washington. They are funny in weird ways but the giggles … Continue reading

Merry Christmas! Enjoy it while (and if) you can. Many no longer can.


Benjamin Franklin said that we have a Republic if we can keep it. We haven’t done a great job. What’s next? NOTE: This began as a guest post by the “Very Honorable” Senator Ima Librul, author of Thou shalt not insult politically correct religions, … Continue reading
