“…he is so pinned down that he cannot function.”

There have been several pieces in the MSM and from our illustrious commentators here asserting that Bush gave up on capturing/killing bin Laden. They decried that Bush minimized OBL because he was just too stupid to catch him. Reproduced below are the words of then President-Elect Barack H. Obama on January 15, 2009, courtesy of…

Liberals in southern Arizona seek to form new state

I think that this is something that all conservatives should support. This would be a perfect real-world laboratory to view leftist, collectivist and open border policies in the wild. Via Drudge: A long-simmering movement by liberal stalwarts in southern Arizona to break away from the rest of the largely conservative state is at a boiling…

“Gutsy Call” or Reelection Hype?

Liberals have been doing victory laps around the legacy of the Bush administration over the killing of OBL as if the intel, the creation of the Joint Special Operations Command just sprung forth from Obama in 2009 as the goddess Athena who, according to popular mythology, sprang forth, fully grown, from Zeus’ head. I’ve said…

Wallowing In Irons

We are wallowing in irons. Being in “irons” is an old sailing term, indicating that a vessel is dead in the water. When a boat is in irons it is pointing into the wind, or is too close to the wind to make headway.  In other words it’s stopped, dead in the water. National economies…

Rule 5: Female Assassin Week!

In honor of the JSOC members who sent OBL to his reward of 72 virgins (who are really transsexual prostitutes from Amsterdam, all infected with genital warts and various other STDs), we bring you: FEMALE ASSASSIN WEEK! All of these lovely ladies have portrayed deadly assassins that any self respecting terrorist, bad guy or just…

Americans Blame Wasteful Government Spending for Deficit

Gee, and here I thought it was corporations and the “rich” not paying their “fair share” that were to blame. From Gallup: The large majority of Americans say spending too much money on unneeded or wasteful federal programs is to blame for the federal budget deficit, while 22% say the deficit is a consequence of…

The Art of the Deal

What to do about Donald? That is a question that is running rampant through Republican circles right now. Is he a Republican? Trump is a Republican in the sense that Michael Bloomberg is a Republican, he adopts just enough ideology to masquerade as one as he flirts with yet another theatrical period in his career,…

Katz Got Her Tongue

Since we have been celebrating Trump trumping BHO and getting the long form released by dancing around the “birther” tree and chanting “Obama is awesome!”, this is just too good… Via Insty: WELL, OF COURSE: Tony Katz owns Contessa Brewer, ‘race-ers’ on MSNBC. That’s like a major-league pitcher in a Little League game. “But this…

An Arab Spring

I’m sitting in my flat in Edinburgh and the international news is on, covering the uprisings in the Arab world. It was reported yesterday that NATO killed some of Gaddafi’s kids and grandchildren and daybreak brings news that NATO also hit a school for disabled children. I’m sitting here thinking that this is not the…
