A Laughable Tweet Today: The Nation and The Prez Pull off a Postal Service Two-fer


Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor for The Nation tweets today:
“Obama’s smart YouTube answer/when asked whether good or bad idea: “Should postal service be privatized?” “Bad idea’” Obama said.
WOW!  Only 140 characters yet doubly wrong.
To the writers at the leftist Nation: What in the world makes Obama’s answer ‘smart’?
And to our illustrious leader:  Seriously?  The postal service [...]

Charles Krauthammer: The Age of Obama: Anno Domini 2 – Heritage Foundation Lecture


In the real world, as opposed to what French President Nicolas Sarkozy calls President Barack Obama’s “virtual world,” America faces the reality of Iran’s intransigence and aggressiveness; China’s headlong pursuit of its own national, regional, and global interests; Russia’s determination to regain its Near Abroad; the Arab states’ refusal to accept any kind of a […]

A disappointing speech from a disappointing president.

State of the Union: “Woe to the People Whose Leader Has No Teacher”


Historically, State of the Union speeches leave no trace. Their impact on presidential approval ratings is nil. Their utility, therefore, is in what they reflect about the presidential character and the presidential course. Last night President Obama gave a speech that was at times quite eloquent, and on occasion rhetorically empty. But at all times […]

Glenn Beck: Did Nostradamus Write Your Opening Music?


I started listening to  The Glenn Beck Program in 2003.  One of the things that attracted me to the show was the opening music. It went something like “Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck. Yeah, he likes the sound of his name being rung..” or something like that. It was light-hearted and self deprecating- just like Glenn.
Over [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: January 22, 2010


The separate reality of radicals, which made them unable to comprehend the consequences of their own actions was made vivid for me in a New York Times story I read later about the parole appeal of Evans’ third political prisoner Kathy Boudin. The Times had run a series of stories on Boudin, with the reporter [...]

The Good, the Bad and Oliver Stone, Part 2: Hitler Was Only Following the Evil Capitalists’ Orders


Click here for Part 1 of “The Good, the Bad, and Oliver Stone”
Thank heaven we no longer have to rely on scholars and historians, traditionally restricted by a silly standard called objectivity, to explain the past for us and put under-reported world events “in context.” Previously we, like the prisoners in Plato’s metaphorical cave, have [...]

Leg Thrills and Spine Chills With Chris Matthews Part 5: Empty Words Create Little Monsters and Grownup Nightmares


My son-in-law, Travis, had what I like to call a “reality attack” while attempting to discipline his two-year-old daughter Pearl. Pearl, like most little girls, holds her Daddy’s heart in the palm of her hand. Like most toddlers, she is a formidable force of boundless energy and relentless willpower.
As the young scamp ran past her [...]

The Anti-American Legal Left

Established in 1920 by Roger Baldwin (who candidly stated that “Communism [was] the goal” toward which his efforts were directed), the American Civil Liberties Union characterizes itself as America’s “guardian of liberty,” working to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United […]
