Culture 11 asked several conservative women writers for a few quick predictions for the coming year. You can read ‘em here. Share yours in comments and e-mail.
You all remember that Barack Obama made his famous comments about bitter, clingy, racist rural Americans at a posh fund-raiser in the Bay Area — America’s role model of tolerance and understanding. Well, look who’s bitter, clingy, and racist now (hat tip – JWF): As more and more black renters began moving into this mostly […]
I’m scheduled to appear on FNC’s Neil Cavuto show at around 4:15pm-ish Eastern today to talk about United Abuse and Waste. How are you spending New Year’s Eve?
Finally, some national security news to cheer: A U.S. judge refused to release two Guantanamo terrorism suspects on Tuesday and upheld the government’s authority to keep them, after ordering freedom last month for five prisoners whose case led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling. Federal District Court Judge Richard Leon said in two separate rulings […]
Two weeks ago, I told you about the UAW’s gold-plated golf course. Now, the rest of the story. As required by federal law, unions must file yearly disclosure documents with the Labor Department. I looked up the LM-2 form for the UAW’s 2007 annual report (No. 000-149). My syndicated column today shares some choice morsels […]
The latest mass e-mail from the Obama perpetual fund-raising machine. It doesn’t end. Your ticket to history michelle – Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States of America on January 20th, 2009. It will be an unprecedented event in the history of our country, and hundreds of thousands of people […]
I know I’m getting to be a broken record on this, but how long will this country keep trying to cure the disease with the disease? Headline: “GMAC loosens credit to make vehicles easier to buy.” Call it the subprime auto loan prescription. Easier auto loans for more people. The struggling financing arm of General […]
Why is The Helmet smiling?
Aw. Poor journalists. Stuck on Adonis pectoral worship duty in Hawaii. Life is hard: It’s, frankly, not the greatest duty for media folks either. You can spend seven hours waiting in a hot van outside a house party and never see anything the officeholder is doing. Nothing to show for a day’s “work.” Some of […]
The Anchoress weighs in on He of the Sun-Kissed pectorals. “President Chesty McCheesecake.” It fits.
Oh, give me a super-sized break. Leftie ’60s leftover/songwriter Peter Yarrow at the Huffington Post fumes over the “Barack the Magic Negro” parody that has RNC candidate Chip Saltsman in hot water. All of sudden — after eight years of “F**k Bush” bumper stickers and “Kill Bush” assassination chic and Bush-or-Chimp parodies — the left […]
Hey, you remember The New Republic — publisher of fraudsters Scott Thomas Beauchamp and Stephen Glass? Well, TNR editors are patting themselves on the back today for exposing an elderly couple’s lies about their Holocaust love story — a story picked up by Oprah and other duped media outlets: Last week, TNR published an article […]
I would think Iowans — and taxpayers across the country — would be rather miffed about Democrat Sen. Tom Harkin’s decision to bail out illegal alien employer Agriprocessors. Reader Scott from Kensett, Iowa, is. He sends this info from the Des Moines Register along this morning: A controversial Postville meatpacking plant might have been forced […]
Dave at Israelly Cool is keeping tabs on Israel’s operation against Hamas. Go here.
Chris Matthews won the Media Research Center’s quote of the year with his Obamedia-topping Leg O’ Thrill and Tingle remark. But Matthews only took first honors because Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow waited until Christmas to file his tribute to Obama’s sun-kissed pectorals. Have they no shame? No, they do not. The gushing reminded me […]
The Fishwrap of Record’s bonds and reputation are in the tank. What to do? Sell, sell, sell! Maybe if they had been spending more on letters editors than on baseball, they wouldn’t have gotten punked. The New York Times Co., strapped for cash and facing shrinking revenue, is reportedly seeking to sell its stake in […]
Watch this excellent video from Andrew Marcus covering one of the most outrageous examples of P.C. on campus of the year.
I’ve reported for years on how city and state governments have forked over hundreds of millions in public subsidies to private mall developers and retailers. In the wake of bad holiday sales, they want more government help. It’s not enough. It’s never enough: Facing a disastrous holiday shopping season, the retail industry on Tuesday urged […]
