Clearing the Browser Tabs – The Terrorism Motive that Dare Not Speak Its Name Friday Edition

The FBI arrested a man named Rezwan Ferdaus on Wednesday who had not only developed detailed plans for a murderous spree in the name of Allah but had also collected most of what he needed to pull it off. He also built detonators that his “accomplices” could use to trigger IEDs in Iraq. When his […]

Obama: America Would Be Great If It Wasn't So Lazy

Is Barack Obama trying to tank his re-election prospects? I only ask because It’s the most plausible reason I can imagine for why he would go on the campaign trail and talk trash about Americans. Mr. Obama, in an interview with WESH-TV in Orlando, said his administration has been tough on the country’s trading partners […]

Peter Orszag, the former Director of the Office of Budget and Management in the Obama administration, thinks we have entirely too much democracy. According to him, we need lots of commissions and panels that will just do things for us, without all that messy voting and debating and gridlock. In an 1814 letter to John […]

I could not agree any more with Bob Owens about Operation Fast and Furious. Save for Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News, the MSM has ignored something that would have sunk a Republican administration by now. Let’s be clear about what the operation really did: I don’t wish to understate it: elements of the U.S. Departments […]

I am really tired of the casual insults from snarky half-wits I and my friends have to endure during prime-time television. I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars, but a good number of my friends do. Most of them are conservative and consider themselves Tea Partiers or at least are sympathetic to the causes of […]

I don’t quite know how to say this, but there’s a very good chance the Obama administration might have an Abuse of Power scandal brewing today. Yes, I know. You’re probably saying to yourself, “Abuse of Power? Those meek little lambs? Impossible!” On the other hand, you might also say, “Jimmie, I know all about Operation Fast […]

Though I don’t know him personally, I have heard of conservative activist and New Media star Steve Foley, but I have certainly heard of him. He worked hard to build up his blog The Minority Report then turned the social capital he built there into effective grassroots political work in New York and Massachusetts during […]

Back in June, I had an idea for something I named the Conservative Cubicle Art Project. Here’s how I described it when I launched a little sneak peek back then: I like hanging pieces of art — comics, mini posters, and so on — at my desk at work, but it’s hard to find art […]

You might have noticed something a leeeeetle bit different about The Shack today. I have wanted a redesign here for a few months, but I hadn’t been able to find a template I really liked for a price I could afford. Thankfully, Solostream rode to my rescue with an offer I simply could not resist. […]

Mmm Mmm Mmm! Barack Strawman Perry

In the last debate, Rick Perry trotted a giant strawman onto the debate stage in Florida, lit it on fire, and danced around it like he was an extra in a remake of The Wicker Man. I spent a couple days trying to figure out why he’d launch such a knuckle-headed attack against at least […]
