Why can’t more Hollywood celebrities talk like this about global jihadists who threaten us all: Shabana Azmi- ‘I was on the phone with a friend in London when she asked me to switch on the TV. It’s a diabolic war waged on our city and country. This isn’t the time to place blame. We need […]
Master Sgt. Anthony Davis, R.I.P.
The Clintons refused to tell the public who was donating millions upon millions of dollars to Billy Boy’s charitable foundation and library fund during her presidential run. But in a deal with Team Obama, this long-sought-after disclosure is apparently the price they are willing to pay to secure her Secretary of State nomination. It will […]
Several weeks ago, I spoke with GWU law professor Jeffrey Rosen about my curious experiences with YouTube’s mystery censors. Longtime readers will remember the battle over “First, They Came.” For the past two years, my attempts to re-upload the little video about the Mohammed Cartoons and violent jihad were blocked. Other users were able to […]
I’ve been writing about taxpayer-subsidized stadium boondoggles since I worked for the Seattle Times. The economic development rationale for pouring millions of tax dollars into sports palaces is bogus. These deals are brazen wealth redistribution schemes under the guise of “public interest” investment. Both Republicans and Democrats alike have supported the shakedowns. And now you […]
“It’s a shame.”
Hope you all are having a good, safe post-Thanksgiving Friday. I’m scheduled to appear on Fox News this afternoon around 4:20-ish pm Eastern. Was supposed to talk about Citibail and its credit card hikes on responsible borrowers, but the Wal-Mart stampede has superseded that. FYI, the Black Friday riot phenomenon is nothing new. Watch these […]
“They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me.”
“Cold chicken salad and plain pound cake,” anyone?
Just got back from a Turkey Trot race. No, I most certainly did not run. As I told my runner husband many years ago, I refuse to run unless someone is chasing me! He did well in the 5k; my daughter ran the children’s race. Unfortunately, she inherited my lungs. It was her first race […]
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! My syndicated column today expresses appreciation for those who live that time-tested virtue: Self-reliance. The reader whose life I write about today is Jen. She’s also a blogger and you can find her Double Nickel Farm site here. Have a great day. *** Giving thanks for self-reliant […]
Reader Tara e-mails: “My daughter’s preschool teacher calls Indians/Native Americans ’1st Americans.’ I guess that’s the NEW PC term. I just hope I’m not calling my kids ‘Last Americans!’” On a related note, reader Becky e-mails: Michelle, Let me first say that I am married to a full Sioux, making my daughter half Sioux, and […]
Have you heard about Rex? Wow:
Keeping in touch with the little people.
Nothing clarifies the mind like a jihadi boomerang.
Hey, remember that campaign line Barack Obama used incessantly throughout the campaign — you know, the one deriding McCain as a Bush clone and mocking a McCain win as “four more years of Bush?” You remember, right? The One: “I can take 4 more weeks of McCain’s attacks, but America can’t take 4 more years […]
What do Jesse Jackson, ACORN, La Raza, Hank Paulson, and the enviro-lobby have in common? Citibank. Matthew Vadum has the lowdown. Hat tip: Stacy McCain. *** Related: Four major banks, including one that collapsed, two that received federal bailout money and one that filed for bankruptcy this past September, paid former President Clinton $2.1 million […]
A school fight breaks out over dressing students as Pilgrims and Indians. Crikey. Just dress all the kids up as yams and cranberries instead and be done with it.
Hmmmm…. The California Supreme Court’s order last week to consider legal challenges to Proposition 8 contained one surprising twist — the name of the sole justice who voted against hearing the cases. Justice Joyce L. Kennard, a staunchly independent if not stubborn jurist, has a lengthy record of protecting gay rights, including the right to […]
Scroll for update…Sanders confirms… Over the weekend, I wrote about Washington state Supreme Court justice Richard Sanders, an old friend of mine from my days in Seattle who had been identified on Friday by lawyer Wendy Long as the man who heckled Attorney General Michael Mukasey during his Federalist Society address. I received the following […]
Some of you will remember my friend Big John Miska, who sent me a classic Photo of the Day a few years ago capturing his encounter with a 9/11 Truther: Big John is a Vietnam veteran and VFW leader who works tirelessly on charitable efforts for our troops. Last year, my family and I attended […]
