The Comfort of Bollinger’s Illusions

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Sam Schulman, writing at The American, has a thoughtful piece on the Columbia University controversy titled Lee Bollinger’s Illusory Idealism. Schulman makes a point we haven’t seen before: Bollinger’s “verbal slap” of Ahmadinejad was only made possible because Bollinger had the US military standing behind him. Read on. Many critics have (correctly) pointed to Bollinger’s […]

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Ahmed Mohamed and Yousef Megahed — Indicted on carrying explosive materials across state lines and additional charges. (Hat tip: LGF) We now know that Ahmed Mohamed — one of the Goose Creek, pipe-bomb-packing “students” — intended for his video on how to make a remote-detonated bomb out of a radio-controlled toy car “to be used […]

Amnest DREAM Dead. To Be Revived.

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies has this post in the Corner noting that the DREAM Act amnesty is dead for now. As usual, the Shamnesty crew is already planning to revive amnesty by adding it to the farm bill next month. Eternal vigilance and all of that. Senate Democrats have given up […]

McCain on the War

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Although we think John McCain’s major blunders — McCain-Feingold and amnesty for illegals — have probably sunk his run for the Presidency, his stance on the War on Islamic Fascism is dead-on. This morning he had these remarks at the Hudson Institute in New York: While our ultimate victory is not in doubt, the length […]

The Truth about Iranian Gays

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

OK, that’s a cartoon. But it just happens to be a graphically realistic depiction of how homosexuals are treated in Iran. The quote is one of many lies from Ahmadinejad’s speech yesterday at Columbia. From CNN, Asked about widely documented government abuse of women and homosexuals in his country, Ahmadinejad said, “We don’t have homosexuals” […]

Pure Evil in our Midst

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Here is a photo Irish Infidel took of one of the Islamist counter-protestors outside of Columbia. His sign reads “May Allah make a mushroom cloud over Israel.” Here’s one of Ahmadinejad’s supporters outside of Columbia University yesterday. Note that he is a former Jew now calling for the destruction of Israel by nuclear weapons. Read […]

Columbia’s Everlasting Shame

Monday, September 24th, 2007

An 16-year old Iranian woman is buried up to her waist in preparation for death by stoning. For more on this practice, check here and here. “The freest women in the world are women in Iran.” — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, National Press Club speech, 24 September 2007 Columbia University has provided Ahmadinejad a platform for his […]

Work Hard, the Government needs your money

Monday, September 24th, 2007

Why live responsibly? Just let Big Brother bail you out by stealing from those fools who choose to live within their means. “A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” — George Bernard Shaw

Socialized Medicine Ends Freedom

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

Besides the fact that socialized medicine results in inferior technology, rationing of care, and fatal waiting limits, perhaps the biggest problem with a government-run health care scheme is that it substitutes a perception of safety for a real loss of freedom. This may be fine for nanny-state Canadians and Europeans, but this is not the […]

Is Dan Rather a Suicide Bomber?

Friday, September 21st, 2007

(Thanks, Lucianne) Is Dan Rather a suicide bomber? If not, then why in the hell is he blowing himself up? Don’t miss Jonah Goldberg’s brilliant and hilarious piece in today’s National Review, I’m Rather Grateful. This is the loveliest thing we’ve read in a while. For those of us who remember Gunga Dan’s shenanigans and […]

High-stakes game in Syria and Iran

Friday, September 21st, 2007

(Hat tip: HR) In the last week we’ve noted Israel’s attack on Syria which may have involved nuclear materials from North Korea and Iran’s chest-pounding that followed as a result of the strike. While everyone laughs at the notion of Iran sending bombers to Israel, Ahmadinejad has set his proxy pieces in place to attack […]

Hillary Hearts MoveOn

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

The Senate today passed, 72-25 with three abstaining, the Cornyn Amendment which condemns the “Betrayus” ad in the New York Slimes. Here’s the text: To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn personal attacks on the […]

Kooks in Ivory Towers

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

The always-enlightening historian, Victor Davis Hanson, makes some great points about the increasingly bizarre behavior of college administrators who, for example, invite Iranian terrorist Ahmadinejad to speak while their colleagues refuse to let Larry Summers speak. The arrogant kooks in the ivory towers are out-of-control. From the corner, “Such a Strange Place, Academia” It is […]

Definition of “Democrat”

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

Neal Boortz has a definition for Democrat that, in its contemporary accuracy, demonstrates how well the meaning of the word has held up over the centuries. This etymology of Democrat is from a book on our Founding Fathers by an renowned historian. Joseph J. Ellis wrote a book called “Founding Brothers, The Revolutionary Generation.” I […]

Iran speaks tough and carries a little stick

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

We recently noted the Israeli attack on Syria in which nuclear materials may have been destroyed. In response, Syria is now accusing the U.S. of spreading “false” claims about Syria’s nuclear relationship with North Korea. What would one expect them to say? Our piece linked to this article which makes a key point about Iran’s […]

Socialized Medicine Nightmares

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

John Stossel has a wonderful essay on the nightmares of Socialized medicine, and if Hillary isn’t stopped you can bet the bank that she’ll be bringing this here. Check out Socialized Medicine Is Broken and Can’t Be Fixed. Last week I pointed out that Michael Moore, maker of the documentary “Sicko,” portrayed the Cuban health-care […]
