Actual L.A. Times headline about six men who were killed while attacking Jews in and around Israel: 6 Palestinians dead as violence grips Gaza, Jerusalem You’d have a hard time finding a more pathetic attempt to turn the attackers into the victims. “19 Middle Easterners among those killed in US plane crashes” — L.A. Times […]

Spin, CNN-style: — John Ekdahl (@JohnEkdahl) June 19, 2015 ALL those non-Islamic-related mass violence deaths were done by right-wingers, eh? CNN also used the “since 9/11″ technique to avoid escalating the Islamic terrorism numbers dramatically. That’s as ridiculous as making a chart listing deaths caused by Nazis and using the disclaimer “since June 1945.” […]

Driving home from the dentist earlier I heard Rush mention this bit of predictable progressive hilarity that’s no doubt coming to the U.S. before too long (if it isn’t here already). Behold: No, seriously, that’s not from The Onion — it’s a story from ABC Radio, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. This pullquote running with the […]

The hashtag-happy bunch at the State Department are following up on President Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism” summit with even more embarrassment: We want your input. Share solutions you think are critical to countering violent extremism. — Department of State (@StateDept) February 20, 2015 Sounds like “PC neighborhood Watch” meets “midnight basketball.” Anybody want […]

Creating a more effective diplomatic corps through platitudes: Diversity in int'l affairs is important. US foreign policy needs more people who look like America & world if we're going to relate, compete — Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice) April 5, 2014 No mention of a necessity for competence, honesty or integrity, and for good reason.

The man who went on a murderous rampage at Fort Hood was on the loose for 15 to 20 minutes before a military policewoman confronted him. Fifteen to 20 minutes running around shooting people without being stopped. On a U.S. military base — full of disarmed soldiers. Can you imagine what kind of carnage would […]

You knew it would be said, but I thought Bob Costas might have been one that would have at least waited until all the facts are known before going off in this direction. I was wrong: BOB COSTAS: Well, you knew it was coming. In the aftermath of the nearly unfathomable events in Kansas City, […]

If I were black or Hispanic and my kids were in Florida schools I’d find this just a tad offensive: The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race. On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by […]

I’ve read the reports and have been told by members of the military that the rules of engagement are nuts, which is why this wouldn’t surprise me in the least: Reports indicate U.S. soldiers and British Royal Marines have been urged to show “courageous constraint” by not shooting Taliban members spotted planting IEDs. The reason? […]

From the “imagine if Fox News did something like this” file, we have NBC’s coverage of Gabby Douglas winning the gold medal, which then led into this break: I was watching, but I’m not hard-wired to be offended by anything and everything so I didn’t even really notice it at the time… until my Twitter […]
