The Message We Should Send: Embalm Osama with Pig’s Blood

Osama bin Laden is dead, and as with the death of Iraqi al-Qaeda terror Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, some liberals warn that winning is losing, self-defense is self-defeating, and killing our enemies is minting new “martyrs.” Because of this, we should not have killed Osama, at least not immediately. Since we did, it was our supremest wisdom that we agreed to bury him in accordance with Islamic Shari’a … [Read more...]

The Media Hype: Osama’s Death Means Obama’s Re-Election

Reagan Would Not Support Obama on Libya

For some conservatives, the most sacred initials in policymaking are WWRRD: What Would Ronald Reagan Do? Whenever America encounters a situation similar to one faced by the Gipper, they say the proper course is to follow his lead.

The Military Pays the Price for Obama’s Agenda

As Barack Obama surrounds himself with smiling teachers grateful he talked vacationing Congressmen into squeezing taxpayers for another multi-billion dollar bailout, Americans should envision another scene: the U.S. soldiers who are paying the price for Obama’s economic agenda.

Did MSNBC Fake Its Own Transcript to Cover for Ed Schultz?

MSNBC: where Ed Schultz's idiocy goes down the memory hole. Does MSNBC edit its transcripts to make its hosts look better and conservatives look worse? The network’s transcript of Monday’s edition of “The Ed Show” did just that.

Jeane Kirkpatrick, RIP

For many of us, December 7 has another reason to live in infamy. Last Thursday, Ronald Reagan’s first ambassador to the United Nations, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, passed away at the age of 80.
