Pat Condell is as outspoken as ever about his contempt for Islam. Perhaps even more so. We find it therapeutic just to listen to him.
A good account of what’s wrong with the “settled science” of man-made global warming. We like the style of these simple cartoons with one painted figure cogently putting a well-informed argument to another in a comically monotonous voice .
This video is the trailer of a forthcoming documentary, Honor Diaries:
Here is a video clip of the NBC puff for Russia, describing 70+ years of Bolshevik terror and enslavement as a “pivotal experiment”, which we wrote about yesterday.
Disgraceful, insulting, grandiose hogwash.
Economics Professor Tim Groseclose explains the Laffer Curve:
But 33% tax! No. A flat rate of about 10% – and government doing much less – is our wish.
Unrealistic? Yes. Unfortunately.
Senator Ted Cruz, in straight, strong, plain words, asks Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS targeting of conservative groups and how Holder’s Department of Justice is handling the issue. He cites precedents. He speaks of abuse of power and conflict of interest. Holder rejects the idea. He says that the precedents no longer apply, as he himself wrote new rules that protect him from any such probe.
Last night President Obama delivered a drab and depressing State of the Union address. The most discouraging point he made was that he would (continue to) implement his radical agenda by executive order, by-passing Congress.
To remind us all what America was and could be again, here’s President Reagan delivering a State of the Union address thirty-two years ago. The most important parts of it still have relevance today, and the speech and the speaker can still stir and inspire. (We overlook the few “God” references. The rest is fine.)
… between the true and the false.
Judge Jeanine Pirro talks about the dishonest woman who wants to be president.
This trailer of a forthcoming documentary by Ben Howe, Bankrupt: How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit, gives a tantalizing glimpse of a story that is to the extreme discredit – thoroughly deserved – of the Democrats and their central planning.
Detroit has been ruined by Democrats. What happened to Detroit is what can happen to the whole country if Democrats are allowed to stay in power for long enough.
Steven Hayward comments at PowerLine:
I especially like the item about how people are actually having deceased family members disinterred to be reburied outside the city. Things are really bad when it’s thought unfit for even dead people to stay inside city limits.
We sympathize. We wouldn’t care to be stuck in Detroit, alive or dead.
And our reader and commenter Frank sends us this video which, as he says, takes a more in-depth view of the same subject:
A laugh is needed in the depths of winter. So here it is.
