To Those Who do not Think the Events of Today were Planned Yesterday: WATCH THIS!

I keep telling people that nothing happens in our politics today that was not planned in some way. If you are among those who still doubt me, watch this — and remember this was filmed BEFORE these events actually started to happen: These things were planned, you just have to know how to listen —…

The Liberal Delusion

Michael Medved has a very good column up at the Daily Beast: The problem isn’t religious conservatives and their abiding faith in God; it’s mainstream liberals and their blind confidence in government. Consider the current dispute over the right response to gun violence. At its core, this argument comes down to a visceral disagreement between relying on…

Whores In The Court Of Versailles

Mark Steyn enters the David Gregory/high capacity/DC gun law fray: This is, declared NYU professor Jay Rosen, “the dumbest media story of 2012.” Why?

5th grade 101

Earlier today, Politecs spoke on Frederick Douglass. It reminded me of a workout two years ago… For my son’s history report, he had to choose someone. He chose James Armistead. The first word outta my mouth was, “who?” He was very excited that this individual was a spy. (A James Bond Armistead, if you will.) Needless to say,…

Logic, Not Emotion, Makes Kids Safer

One of the more sane editorials that I have read regarding the Sandy Hook tragedy and our response to it was written by a local Mississippi guy, a reporter for the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, Errol Castens: In the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook, emotions are raw, and people are understandably eager – even desperate…
