Sarah Palin Surprise Support of Fiorina: No Wimps Allowed!


It was but seventy seven years ago that Wimpy murmured to Popeye the Sailor man: “I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”.   Particularly apt this afternoon because Californians are wondering if today is Carly Fiorina’s “Tuesday.”
Following Fiorina’s support during the White House bid, Sarah Palin has now officially endorsed Ms. Fiorina’s [...]

Perky Katie Worries that Illegal Aliens “No Longer Feel Welcome” in Arizona


Katie Couric may have hit a new low on Monday night’s CBS Evening News—though I’m sure there are plenty of other broadcasts of hers that could be nominated.
In a story designed to evoke sympathy for an  “undocumented” husband and wife who have given birth to 10 US citizens since they came here illegally, and who [...]

“International Workers’ Day” Turns to Riot in Santa Cruz, CA


What a coincidence that on May Day, the day of the international workers’ struggle, a so-called “street party” would turn violent and culminate in the destruction of $100,000 worth of private property.

Mojave Cross’s existence poses problem for historical revisionists

From the Writings of David Horowitz: April 30, 2010


Huey Long was once asked whether he thought fascism could ever come to America. His answer was “Yeah, but it’ll come calling itself anti-fascism.” America isn’t close to such a future, but I couldn’t help thinking about Long’s comment in connection with an episode that occurred recently at my alma mater.
