DISCOVERTHENETWORKS: Howard Dean


Is there such a thing as deficit terrorism? Howard Dean thinks so. Yesterday, former presidential contender and anti-capitalist Howard Dean expressed serious concern over the federal deficit, saying that, in the long run, the deficit poses a greater danger to the U.S. than al-Qaeda! Of course, this new-found fiscal hawkishness was in reference to Dean’s [...]

To Sexist AP, HuffPo Inanely Bashing Palin Is More Important Than Helping Haiti


Every time I think that the “Press” can’t sink any lower than the rock bottom they’ve already hit, they somehow manage to burrow themselves further into the earth’s mantle. As is so often the case, this most recent gutter-dwelling example has to do with Sarah Palin, who dared to go on a humanitarian trip to [...]

The Divorce Industrial Complex: Sexual Revolution Money Never Sleeps (But Does it Sleep Around?)


Its interesting how the modern Left has acclimatized itself to the moral, cultural, and intellectual degeneration its ideas and social theories have wrought over the last forty years.  Equally interesting is the manner in which it brands those who have not, like the prehistoric woolly rhinoceros, grown the thick hide and fur necessary to fully [...]

What Motivates Radical Libertarians’ Blind Allegiance to Anti-Government Thugs Like Julian Assange


The outpouring of support WikiLeaks and Julian Assange have received from the usual paleo-libertarian suspects is as illuminating as it is predictable. Take, for example, Ron Paul’s latest attempt at LewRockwell.com to make excuses for the leaking of highly sensitive government data because—as always—the real villain we should be worried about is Uncle Sam: [S]tate [...]

Mayhem in Sweden


Holiday shoppers and revelers in Stockholm, Sweden, tarrying throughout the popular shopping district on a leisurely weekend afternoon, were suddenly exposed to the violent and chaotic whims of Islamic fundamentalism. Within moments of each other, a car bomb exploded near a group of people in the area of Drottninggatan, while only yards away a suspected [...]

Obamacare Suffers A Debilitating Heart Attack


While it is too early to declare Obamacare dead, it has clearly suffered a debilitating heart attack. The ruling Monday by federal judge Henry Hudson that it is unconstitutional for the government to force Americans to purchase health insurance gives hope to all who love American values. The reason I say it is too early [...]

The Strange Lies of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality


In an interview with Concerned Women for America, Peter LaBarbera, president of the group Americans for the Truth about Homosexuality, challenged his critics by asking why so many victims of pedophiles are boys if gays aren’t more given to child molestation than heterosexuals. It would be a provocative question if the premise wasn’t based on [...]
