I Hereby Resolve in 2015…

I’m not big on making New Year’s resolutions, but I do pledge to continue holding the feet of liberals to the flames until they pull this computer keyboard out of my cold, dead hands. Although I know it’s too much to ask that left-wingers stop providing me with so much grist for my mill, I…

Islamic Terrorism by Any Other Name …

More than a million people turned out. More than 40 presidents and prime ministers were there. It was, as the New York Times reported, “the most striking show of solidarity in the West against the threat of Islamic extremism since the Sept. 11 attacks.” But President Obama did not go to Paris. Neither did Joe…

Guilt By Association

Liberals are contemptuous of those who believe that associating with bad apples might be an indicator that you yourself are rotten to the core. In fact, if you dared point out that Robert Byrd, who wound up serving 51 years in the U.S. Senate and not only became the Senate majority leader, but the President…

Media Cowards and the Cartoon Jihad

I have never laughed so bitterly as I did while reading Thursday’s lead editorial by the great pretender-defenders of free speech at The New York Times. Paying obligatory lip service to the 10 cartoonists and staffers of the Paris satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo who were slaughtered for offending Islam, the Times intoned: “It is absurd…

The Paralysis of Europe

Nor were we lacking for warning signs. In 1989, Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa, a license to kill author Salman…

The Left’s Deep River of Denial

Second, hard news reports list the number of dead, the weaponry used, and the status of the killers. And then, within hours, some mushy-headed apologists descend on liberal news outlets to…

A Cornucopia Of Facts & Notions

In the wake of so many people trekking off to see “The Interview” in the belief that they’re simultaneously striking a blow for freedom of speech and spitting in North Korea’s eye, it occurred to me that when it comes to stiffing the First Amendment, Kim Jong-un can’t hold a candle to the folks who…

The Black Brunch Brats

America’s social justice movement has reached a critical turning point. The left’s bravest young warriors for change have turned … back to 1989 and borrowed costumes from Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” music video. Clad in black-ops black from head to toe with fists held high, stylin’ members of the so-called “Black Brunch” brigade look like…
