14 Podcasts That Will Make You Think

Podcasts are slowly taking over. Talk radio, while still broadcasting live and over terrestrial airwaves, has finally begun to embrace it. Only a few short years ago paid subscriptions were required to listen to your favorite news/talk shows on demand and podcasts seemed the poorly produced bastard brother. Now, after years of pioneers like Adam …

Ready For Chillary!

So Hillary is trying to reach out to younger voters and in a recent Vine talked about how she was “chilling” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was lame of course and on the advice of Amy Otto, I spruced it up and here it is: Trouble!

A New Hope For Greece?

With Greece humiliated at the hands of the evil banksters, the Troika, the ECB, Merkel, and other EU nations at the horror of paying back money their politicians borrowed for promises they couldn’t keep (which can never really be paid back, anyway)… After the IMF (allegedly) called for Tsipras to resign his position as prime minister… Who can Greece …

Narcissist-In-Chief: Barack Obama

Politicians and ego (both male and female) go together like milk and cookies. Where there is one, you will likely find the other. To be a citizen legislator or executive, regardless of the level, is meant to be one of public service wherein the public entrusts a person to represent them to the best of their …

Bubba Watson and The General Lee

In the newest round of pilers on to the ex post facto Confederate Flag outrage, pro-golfer Bubba Watson has announced that he will deface a significant piece of The Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia that he owns post-haste, because he truly believes all persons are equal and this action will absolve him of historical guilt: Ostensibly …

China Has More Spies Living In California Than The FBI Has Agents

Based in Beijing, the Ministry for State Security (MSS) is responsible for China’s foreign intelligence, counter-intelligence, and security. The MSS is believed to be responsible for the majority of Chinese espionage. Military talk show host and veteran Bryan Suits is …

Anti-Semitism At CNN

Is it just me or does it seem like every time Islamic extremists commit a heinous act, anti-Semites crawl out of the woodwork? That very scenario happened last night when Jim Clancy went on a completely incoherent anti-Israel rant after the world was rocked by Islamic extremists murdering 12 people after storming the office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, beginning with this …

It’s Time For An Equal Tax

Thanks to Ashe Schow for reading Think Progress and digging up this wonderful gem. “Think Progress Claims Ted Cruz is anti-woman because he supports a flat tax.” Just when you thought the left couldn’t get more ridiculous, Stieger attempts to make the case. “Steiger also claims that Cruz’s agenda is anti-woman because he’s for the flat tax and …

If President Obama Had His Way, The DC Opportunity Scholarship Fund Would Not Exist

When Barack Obama became President, one of the first things he did before even doing anything in his official capacity was to get the ball rolling in sending his two girls, Sasha and Malia to Sidwell Friends, an exclusive private school in Bethesda, Maryland. The annual tuition for the school is about $34,000 per year. …

‘District of Corruption’ Doesn’t Let Administrations Off the Hook

Almost every politically engaged person to the right of center recognizes the unprecedented level of corruption in the Obama administration. Honest leftists must also admit to it. Sometimes it seems that one scandal emerges only to distract us from the previous one. It is almost impossible to remember all of them. Fortunately, Judicial Watch has …

Feminist Demands 2015

Recently, feminists– those well-intentioned champions of all that is socially just, who advance their left-wing agenda without the support of powerful and well financed lobbies, and a complicit media superstructure– yes, their back is really against the wall– got a really hardfought column published in the Washington Post, documenting what they want to see for feminism in 2015. I imagine the fight to …

John Boehner Will Still Be Speaker: Political Realities Are What They Are

I often criticize the left (justifiably) for going into fits of rage over…..well, almost anything. It’s what the left does best. Reason, being rational, intelligent discussion and well thought out arguments are foreign concepts to most on the left. I wrote over a year ago about the difficulties of engaging in discussion with people who are always attacking motives …

Al Sharpton Has Cleaned Up His Appearance But The Dirt Can’t Be Washed Off

If you looked up “attention whore” in the dictionary, an appropriate photo would be one of the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, displayed prominently. Sharpton’s “career” of rabble rousing and  fomenting division between whites, blacks, Jews and Asians is well documented as are his constant attempts to smear police officers, particularly those in New York City. Sharpton …

Ted Cruz’s Last Stand

“Madam President, I rise today in opposition to ObamaCare. I rise today in an effort to speak for 26 million Texans and for 300 million Americans.

5 Reasons Why Shaming Is Not Coercion

On Wednesday, Cathy Reisenwitz stirred up the libertarian world with a post entitled, “Shaming Others is Unjustifiable Coercion.” She argues that ostracism (and criticism, ridicule, and shame) are equivalent to state coercion. Private coercion, she attests, and public coercion are one and the same. I don’t buy her argument, at all. Here are five reasons …

Mike’s Financial Pocket: The Fed’s Quantitative Easing “Taper” Troubles

Over the last few months, there has been considerable talk about the “taper,” referring to the end of the Federal Reserve’s purchasing program known euphemistically as “quantitative easing.” Under QE, as it is generally referred to, the Federal Reserve has been engaging in purchasing of assets (particularly United States Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities) in an effort to stimulate the economy …

Honest Conversation About Race? Not When Motives Are Dishonestly Attacked

Several people have written great pieces about the issue of race in the wake of the Zimmerman trial. RB Pundit writes about his own experience with bigotry. Charles W. Cooke as he almost always does, writes a fantastic piece debunking the notion we still live an Emmett Till era and Rich Lowry writes many people conveniently ignore cold hard facts about …

In February, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) informed federal agencies spending more than $100 million on research to develop strategies to make published results of federal funded research publicly available.
