Friday Photos: Democrat Privilege

Pop quiz: Why isn’t the Justice Department investigating the Clinton money laundering operation? Any other so-called charity would be under multiple federal and state indictments. Hillary Clinton had her own private server when she was Secretary of State. This is indefensible. She destroyed 30,000 emails? Does anyone believe that all these emails were about yoga […]

Friday Photos: Welcome to the New La-La Land

  Hollywood was once the dream capital of the world. Movies peddled glamour and fantasy. This was La-La Land where outrageous plots and larger than life characters allowed audiences to construct alternate realities — entertainment. But La-La Land has relocated. On Wednesday, President Obama delivered the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy in New […]

Kuwaiti Muslim Discovers He’s a Jew

Hillary and Bill Clinton run a money laundering operation disguised as a charity. Any good that’s done by the Clinton Foundation is purely accidental. Obama’s surrender of Iraq to the IslamoNazis of Islamic State make him and the Democrat party enablers of mass murder, rape, torture, plunder, and a refugee crisis not seen since World […]

Obama: The Anti-Israel President

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xO8qZP_iU9I[/youtube]   Ramadi has fallen to the IslamoNazis of Islamic State. Keep in mind that Ramadi was stable and secure when Obama came into office. But in his haste to scamper out of the Middle East, Obama has left a power vacuum that has been filled by the worst actors the Islamic world has to […]

Obama’s Jews — Fox News

Yesterday, President Obama was in full Marxist mode at a Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty at Georgetown University. Obama took pot shots at hedge fund manages because they make more money than kindergarten teachers. Has it ever occurred to Obama that kindergarten teachers freely choose their profession? Just as hedge fund managers choose what they […]

Moderate Muslims Speak Up — And It’s Not Pretty

Theology does not interest me. I never argue points of faith with anyone. Not with other Jews, nor with my many Christian friends. I am, however, deeply interested and concerned about behavior. And when a particular theology demands murderous behavior, well, then we all need to be concerned.

White Appreciation Day: Oh, the Horror!

The owners of a Colorado barbecue restaurant are going to offer a discount to white customers for one day.   [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puYeACJaTiI[/youtube]   Notice how the left is outraged when their own tactics are used against them. And, of course, they ready to pounce with lawsuits through unaccountable government agencies.

Raped Because She Dressed Provocatively

The reason for the headline is because the liberal media have been assaulting Pamela Geller’s “Draw Mohammed Contest” as  “unnecessarily provocative and inflammatory.’ Do these good liberals also blame a rape victim because she dressed in a skirt that is too short, heels that are too high, or a blouse that is too sheer? Do they […]

Indiana and the Gay Rights Lie

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqfCdVUH4WY[/youtube]   Ben Shapiro does a fine job of explaining why the gay marriage movement has nothing to do with tolerance or equality, but is, in truth, an Orwellian assault on freedom of religion.
