“We saw a pretty routine discipline issue become a criminal issue in just a matter of minutes”

Oh yes.  (CNN)The video shows a South Carolina school resource officer standing over a student, seated at her desk. He puts his arm near her neck, then yanks her backward. The desk tips over and the student crashes onto the floor. The uniformed officer doesn’t let go, sharply tugging the student toward the front of […]

Is Putin In Trouble In Syria?

There have been regular reports that the Russian bombing campaign in Syria has mainly targeted the most dangerous enemies of the Assad regime. That would include the “Free Syrian Army”. Now, after bombing them for some weeks, Russia is offering them assistance. Russia offers air cover for anti-Assad rebels. Speaking after a surprise summit between […]

“Police officers aren’t police officers, they are tax collectors.”

I’m sure I’ve said the same thing over the years, but Lawrence Lessig recently said it in the context of the BlackLivesMatter movement. LARRY LESSIG: What I think the meaning of Black Lives Matter is… people are focusing on the Black part, I think we should focus on the Lives part. When you have a […]

Local hatefest

This afternoon just blocks away, the hated University of Michigan Wolverines are playing against the hated Michigan State University Spartans. I do not exaggerate: On Saturday afternoon (3:30 p.m., ESPN), with a stiff chill in the air, “the hate” is about to start flowing through more than 100,000 people inside Michigan Stadium, and thousands of […]

Stabbed By The Press

Yahoo News reports: HEBRON, West Bank (AP) — A Palestinian wearing a T-shirt with the word “press” in large letters stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier Friday before being shot dead by troops, the latest in a monthlong spate of attacks. Now why would some one want to do that? We find out later on […]

A vast left wing conspiracy?

While there is much to be said for the old days of “smoke-filled rooms,” the non-smoking Democratic Party of today and its supporters are certainly doing everything possible to recreate them. Not only is the entire machinery of the DNC and CNN lined up in lockstep support of the Hillary machine, so has President Obama, […]

What Is Going On In Syria? – 2

This is early news and the analysis may be incorrect but it is not unexpected. The Russian/Syrian advance in Syria is meeting resistance. Russia ‘reducing air strikes against Syrian rebels’ as quick win proves elusive. Russia is reducing its air strikes against Syrian insurgents, as the intervention fails to hand a swift advantage to pro-government […]

The Hillary Monologues

That’s what I think of tonight’s “debate.”

What Is Going On In Syria? – 1

Syrian rebels fortify frontline with anti-tank missiles Russia’s two-week-old air campaign has bolstered Assad and left the United States struggling to adjust its troubled military support program for Assad’s opponents.

What Is Going On In Syria? – 0

Since I will probably have more to say on the subject this is report zero (0). I don’t necessarily agree with all the facts let alone the interpretations expressed in this video. But I think it gives a good general sense of the situation. You can’t tell the players even with a scorecard. Video source […]

Has Israel Allied With Russia?

From Sputnik News. A Russian source. After successful military cooperation talks with Israel, Russia wonders: Why no word from Turkey and the United States? On Wednesday, senior officials with both the Israeli and Russian governments met to discuss the avoidance of accidental collisions in Syrian airspace. The meeting of senior diplomats in Israel follows Israeli […]

Obama – Global Police Force Needed In The US

Why would you want outsiders policing the US? Because they would find it easier to kill Americans and/or violate their rights. None of them would have taken the oath (no matter how meaningless) to uphold and defend the Constitution. Here are some links if you want to look into it further. A New Global Police […]

Drudge – The End Of The Internet

Yeah. Alex Jones. But Matt Drudge. More video and links at Matt Drudge Rare Interview: “I’m A Free Thinker. I’m An American. I’m Very Concerned…”.

No wonder Hillary hates Iowa

Hillary Clinton does in fact hate Iowa, and little wonder. Iowa has a well-earned reputation as an accurate early predictor of national election results: …[I]f history is any guide, early national polls are far less valuable in understanding what is happening in the presidential contest than are reliable surveys of Iowa voters, such as the […]

Attack of the Killer Virgins!

Sorry for yet another facetious title, but I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. Earlier a friend emailed me about an outbreak of college campus hysteria in Philadelphia. The content of that last link has been changed after nothing happened, but originally, all local colleges were warned about a possible attack by a group […]

Why have “we” suddenly “allowed” mass murder?

Sorry about the facetious title, because “Why now?” is an excellent question. There is nothing new about guns, or schools, or even school shootings. Yet if this article is correct, since 2010 the numbers of school shootings have in fact skyrocketed. I am at a loss to explain the apparent acceleration of this phenomenon. It […]
