Alleged Conservatives with IQs Praise Trump’s Nauseating 9/11 Non-Answer; Say it Damaged Ted Cruz

There were a lot of punches and jabs during the Republican debate Thursday: Rubio hit Cruz with an avalanche of BS accusations in a single statement, knowing full well Cruz could never respond to even one of them in the time allotted, and Trump and Cruz duked it out over citizenship. But there was one moment that made me sick to my stomach. Not because of content, per se, but because of the reaction and applause it garnered from the audience and pundits. Moderator Maria Bartiromo asked Cruz about Read more […]

Pundits Quick to Blame Snowden for Paris Attacks

If the aftermath of 9/11 taught us anything, it is that centralized governments slouching toward totalitarianism never let a crisis go to waste. And, in a corollary, citizens are far more credulous and trusting when they have just experienced a trauma. So, in the wake of the Paris attacks, it doesn’t surprise me at all that the intelligence community is calling for ever more lenient restrictions on their data collection and powers. And people are giving it to them. In fact, the intelligence Read more […]

On ISIS and the Syrian Refugee Crisis: Peace Takes Courage, So We Will Have War

A day after ISIS operatives killed over a hundred people in Paris, the French military dropped some bombs on Raqqa, Syria—the de facto capital of the Islamic State. The attack was mostly symbolic, as probably no ISIS agents were killed. But it signaled how the West would be dealing with ISIS. Unfortunately, it also signaled how the West would deal with the Middle East at large. Twenty-seven of 50 US state governors have signed executive orders refusing the relocation of Syrian refugees into Read more […]

HOA Fines Resident $75 for Flying American Flag

I am so glad I don’t live under a homeowner’s association anymore. I’m glad I don’t have to pay the $195-a-month fees that went toward maintenance of a pool that’s only open a few months out of the year, and a tennis court that’s overgrown with weeds. The fees also (allegedly) went toward repairing exterior damage to the condo units, and neighborhood nazis who went around looking for “unsightly conditions” violations. One time I got a notice saying that I was in violation for not Read more […]

Student Suspended for Wearing American Flag T-Shirt

Jaegur is not one to try to break the rules. He has hopes of joining the military, and is currently active in his Texas school’s ROTC program. He was wearing a gray hoodie at school one day, but when a school official instructed him to lift up the hoodie revealing his white t-shirt with the American flag on it, he was given in-school suspension. According to the official, the American flag shirt violated the school’s dress code. Even though Seagoville High School doesn’t have uniforms, Read more […]

Students Told They Can’t Fly American Flags in School Parking Lot

I wonder if school officials would have cared all that much if students had flown the rainbow flag right after the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage should be permissible in every state in the nation. Everyone was flying the rainbow flag. The White House turned into a rainbow flag. But the American flag is racist and offensive. At least they’re consistent. We were told that the Confederate battle flag was racist and offensive, and some wondered if the American flag would be next on the list Read more […]

NASA’s New Horizons Probe Shoots Past Pluto

I know it’s not a planet anymore, but Pluto is still worth checking out. At least NASA thinks so. The New Horizons probe launched in January of 2006, with the goal of collecting photos and data from Pluto and beyond. New Horizons will continue to fly out into the Kuiper Belt into the 2030s, when its plutonium-powered nuclear reactor is expected to give out. Pluto is the last planet of the classic solar system to be explored, which means that the USA is the first country to have “probed” Read more […]

GOP Trashes Rand Paul for Telling the Truth About ISIS

The conservative media and other GOP presidential contenders are beating up on Rand Paul for telling the truth about ISIS. Breitbart’s saying that Paul has “joined the left” in “blaming the GOP” for ISIS’s existence. Rick Santorum compared Paul to Bernie Sanders. Bobby Jindal said that Paul’s view on ISIS makes him unsuited to be president. And I’m sure there’s tons more coming. So, what exactly did Rand Paul say to draw so much ire from professing conservatives all of a sudden? Politico Read more […]

School Officials Try to Ban American Flags from Students’ Vehicles

Peyton Robinson had flown his 4-foot by 6-foot American flag and a POW-MIA flag in the back of his pickup last year as well as a month this year, and no one said anything about them. Then, a few days ago, an official at South Carolina’s York Comprehensive High where Peyton attends instructed him to remove the flags, because the school had gotten some “complaints” about them, and since they don’t want to offend those complainers, their only recourse was to offend the offending person by telling Read more […]

Barack Obama Sends No Delegations for Patriots

Why Obama sends delegations to the funerals of criminals, but not to the funerals of patriots. It’s been said that you cannot judge a man’s motives because you cannot see them. This is partly true and partly false—a half-truth—which if put into practice, makes it almost impossible to make assessments of someone else’s character. We are motives; our actions are cut from the fabric of our intentions, and as such, we simply need to reverse engineer actions to understand motives. If all politicians Read more […]

A Note to Those Trying To Justify the Baltimore Riots

“Violence is like a weed – it does not die even in the greatest drought.” – Simon Wiesenthal Unmitigated rage has been loosed from its cage once again—but this time in Baltimore. Stores have been looted and set on fire, police officers have been brutally injured, and the Governor has declared a state of emergency. It’s obvious to me that this savage behavior is deplorable, and one would think that this view would be the consensus among all who’ve seen what’s occurring in Baltimore. However, Read more […]

Ted Cruz Takes Aim At The RINOs

RINOs (Republicans In Name ONly) are about to be forced to identify themselves. “I think this is ridiculous.” – Kelly Ayotte (R) What is the point of being a leader if you are not willing to do what you tell your constituents you are going to do? If one campaigns on certain issues, one expects that you will follow thorough with those promises once you are elected. If, once you are elected, you fail to promote the promises you made, you have failed your electorate. That’s basic. If you have failed Read more […]
