Gambling on the Good Word of a Tyrant *Updated and Bumped*

Gambling on the Good Word of a Tyrant *Updated and Bumped*

I am really intrigued by this story which reveals that President Bush had a National Intelligence Estimate which said, in part, that Iran had frozen its nuclear weapons program in 2003 but that our intelligence agencies weren’t sure if Iran intended to continue to pursue nuclear weapons. The NIE sounds very similar to what our […]

China has reason to cheer today, thank to Zhang Zilin, a lovely young woman who won the nation its first-ever Miss World tiara. She’s a very lucky woman. She managed to escape being one of the countless girls in China who were murdered by their government simply because they had the misfortune to be born […]

Nestled in what you could probably call a guest post on the PowerLine blog is the best contrast between conservatives and liberals I’ve read in a long while. Conservatives want the freedom to pursue happiness on their own terms. Liberals think they have a right to happiness and that it should be delivered, like a […]

If you’re a fan of the Sci-Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica, there’s some good news and bad news in your future. The good news is that if you live in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas or Seattle, you can catch the two-hour episode called “Razor” on the big screen on November […]

Saudi King Pegs the Irony Meter

I do not think that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has even a nanometer of room to criticize anyone about terrorism. Abdullah told the BBC that Britain was not doing enough in the war on terror. He made the comments hours before arriving in London for a state visit. “I believe that most countries are […]

Bombing Burma with Bloomers

I like this story. Activists exasperated at the failure of diplomacy to apply pressure on Burma’s military regime are resorting to a new means of protest against the regime’s recent crackdown: sending female underwear to Burmese embassies. Embassies in the UK, Thailand, Australia and Singapore have all been targeted by the “Panties for Peace” campaign, […]

The Democrats said that George Bush turned the whole world against us and that only they could bring international peace and harmony. So far, that appears to be a big old pile of bullflop. It seems that the Democrats in Congress have managed to put a sizeable torpedo into the President’s generally successful diplomatic efforts […]

Time Magazine had waded into the S-CHIP fray with a biased and occasionally untrue article which claims that Young Frost was Swift-Boated, whatever the heck that means. Best I can tell, when someone in the MSM uses that phrase, they mean that some folks came up out of nowhere and told lies – filthy lies […]

It’s nice when one of the unhinged left (which comprises about 20 percent of the Democratic Party) gets a couple of their brain cells to make contact. You get unintentionally true statements like this: The American fundamentalists want a modern-day totalitarian theocracy and often claim that is what the Founders wanted. That of course is […]
