It’s not often that I send you, my faithful and enduring readers, to another site then ask you to come back, but that’s what I want you to do right now. I’d like you to read the synopsis of Giuseppe Verde’s opera “A Masked Ball”, then come back. It won’t take but a couple minutes. […]

I Feel Sorry for Michelle Obama (Updated)

I Feel Sorry for Michelle Obama (Updated)

| February 18, 2008 | 12 Replies

This sentence, from Michelle Obama, strikes me as a sad, sorry thing to say. For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country… What made her proud is her husband’s campaign. That’s the first thing she’s seen that makes her proud of her country. I’m sure that she’s about […]

Soros Was Behind the Lancet "Study"

Soros Was Behind the Lancet "Study"

| January 13, 2008 | Reply

Here’s a big shocker. George Soros coughed up about half the money that funded the ridiculous Lancet study. The study said that about 650,000 Iraqis had died since 2003 as a result of the war. The Lancet numbers were about four times what the next largest number was and came under fire for some pretty […]

Michael Young’s piece for Reason Online is a refreshingly realistic, though incredibly depressing, read. Here’s his opening. Maybe 2008 will be the year when we will finally be rid of that vacuous belief that “the neocons” are in control of the Bush administration’s foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East. Habits are hard to break, […]

Democrats Approved of Waterboarding in 2002, Said Interrogators Could Do More (AKA: Those Contemptible Hacks)

Those lying, political hacks. In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual […]

Apparently Mad Mahmoud wants to be an observer in our next Presidential election and I’m foursquare in favor of the idea. He might learn a few things, including that, unlike in dictatorial Iran, we only elect Presidents for two terms. Perhaps Jimmy Carter, ace election observer that he is, could take Ahmadinejad under his wing. […]

You Can't Escape Politics: The Goofy Bridge Edition

Oh, for the love of Pete, can’t we do anything without bringing our cliched, silly politics into it? In the genteel world of bridge, disputes are usually handled quietly and rarely involve issues of national policy. But in a fight reminiscent of the brouhaha over an anti-Bush statement by Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks […]

I can’t believe this story made it past an editor. The September 6 raid over Syria was carried out by the US Air Force, the Al-Jazeera Web site reported Friday. The Web site quoted Israeli and Arab sources as saying that two US jets armed with tactical nuclear weapons carried out an attack on a […]

Roger L. Simon asks today is Mohammed el-Baradei, the head of the IAEA is a liar or “uninformed”. I don’t know the answer for sure, but I can say that, based on the giant Al QaaQaa fiction he peddled to the New York Times, he has a track record for being the former. Regardless of […]

I want to draw a quick comparison between a true tyrannical and torturing regime and the United States, which the left loves to portray as a tyrannical and torturing regime.
