As one who has delivered some harsh — one might say blistering — condemnation against New York Times columnist Charles Blow, today I feel compelled to proffer unqualified commendation of his recent column on the California cop killer. In the interest of consistent truthfulness, sometimes it’s necessary to admit that someone normally considered an adversary — even an enemy — has gotten it right…even while my jaw is dropping. More

Synopsis: The NRA president’s solution to school massacres won’t work, but for a reason that will make gun control advocates apoplectic — namely, it doesn’t go far enough.
As an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment for many years, I was looking forward to hearing from NRA president Wayne LaPierre about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. He had the good sense to wait for a decent while before speaking and thereby convey some evidence of actually thinking about this horrifying event, unlike the lockstep, ignorant leftists who began promulgating grand gun-ban wisdom within minutes afterward.

By now anyone who is not residing in an unelectrified cabin in the mountains of Montana knows about the firestorm of controversy created by the June 30, 2012 SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare. What is less obvious is the confusion the ruling has left in its wake. Much of this confusion has to do with indiscriminate labels bouncing off the walls of public discourse.
Here’s a shortlist of quotes from media sources that highlight the mandate/tax confusion: (Click here to read this entire article.)

Conservatives complain, often justifiably, that stupid Republicans are all too quick to throw their own under the bus when turmoil arises, while leftist Democrats stick up for their henchmen through any and all fraud and deceit. But look how many conservatives have been eager to give Chief Justice John Roberts a poke in the eye with a sharp stick following the ObamaCare decision — not just criticisms, but outright ad hominem attacks, even hinting that Roberts has been a closet leftist all along.
By noon Thursday, literally minutes after the decision was announced, Rush Limbaugh was in full fulmination mode: “[W]e, the American people, have just been deceived in ways that nobody contemplated.” (Click here to read this entire article.)

If you conservatives out there in AT country are anything like me, you spend a good deal of time scratching your heads in perplexity when leftists speak. “How can they possibly believe that?”
Give the top of your head a break and don’t let your fingernails draw any blood when you watch Leslie Stahl’s 60 Minutes interview — set to air in full the evening of April 29 — of former CIA Clandestine Services head Jose Rodriguez. Rodriguez was in charge of, among other things, the interrogation of 911 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) using “enhanced interrogation” techniques, which of course we all know is a euphemism for waterboarding.
In a nation that says it’s OK to deploy armed drones that inevitably kill and maim non-combatant bystanders right along with enemy terrorists, we find Ms. Stahl deeply concerned about Ensure being fed to interrogation subjects: More

As reported in the Washington Post from the AP — and this account is being parroted universally in the left-lackey media — George Zimmerman apologized to the family of Trayvon Martin:
In an unusual move, George Zimmerman took the witness stand Friday to apologize to the parents of Trayvon Martin for fatally shooting their 17-year-old son. Assistant prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda took the opportunity to grill the neighborhood watch volunteer about some of the statements he made to police. (Emphasis added.)
Eager to pounce on Zimmerman’s surprise statement, prosecutor De la Rionda attempted to twist Zimmerman’s words into an admission of criminal guilt and/or an offense of perjury, or at least a cynical ploy to scrounge for some media sympathy: More

- “One obvious reason is to distract us from his poor record as president. He is so confident of his oratory that he, as is true of many con men, can feel confident that whatever message is being peddle[d] will be believed.”
- “Barack Obama and his supporters apparently feel the end justifies the means — as has been true of many despots throughout history, by the way.”
- “However, there may be a more fundamental reason we are so consistently lied to by Barack Obama and his allies: they just do not respect most Americans and have very little regard for our intelligence.” More
