Even more on the latest developments in Iraq

Posted by: ST on March 31, 2008 at 8:37 pm » 1 Comment

This morning, I linked up to several pieces that gave you a more insightful view of what’s happening in Iraq with the Mahdi Army and Sadr than what we’ve typically gotten out of the MSM these last couple of weeks. To add to that, Bill Roggio has some additional updates on the latest developments in […]

 

Revisiting the “would you date a liberal” argument

Posted by: ST on March 31, 2008 at 7:56 pm » 20 Comments

Over two years ago, I started a thread here asking readers whether or not they would let someone’s political affiliation stop them from dating/marrying them. There were quite a few interesting responses in the thread. My response was that it didn’t matter one way or the other as long as the guy worshipped me I’ve […]

 

Rev. Wright wrote the NYT a year ago to complain about their portrayal of him

Posted by: ST on March 31, 2008 at 2:59 pm » 1 Comment

Time’s Mark Halperin obtained a copy of a letter Obama’s “former pastor” Jeremiah Wright wrote to NYT reporter Jodi Kantor last March complaining about how she “misrepresented” in an article she wrote about him shortly after she interviewed him for a piece she was doing on Barack Obama. Some excerpts (via Scott Johnson): Thank you […]

 

Where to go to find out what’s happening in Iraq

Posted by: ST on March 31, 2008 at 9:42 am » 4 Comments

Certain areas in Iraq have seen an increase in fighting and violence over the last couple of weeks, and as a result, of course our mainstream media, in concert with liberal pundits and bloggers, have jumped on board with enthusiasm, thinking the surge might just be failing. As always, though, the story is a lot […]

 

Davidson Wildcats lose chance to go to the Final Four

Posted by: ST on March 30, 2008 at 7:21 pm » 4 Comments

Stephen Curry and the gang at Davidson played their behinds off tonight against #1 Kansas, proving that just because you’re ranked #10 doesn’t mean you have to play like a #10 team. In the end, though, as the last 16 seconds of the game winded down with Davidson in possession, the last second shot didn’t […]

 

84 year-old multiple war veteran smacks down teen who attempts to rob him

Posted by: ST on March 30, 2008 at 6:52 pm » 4 Comments

Back in early February, I blogged about 80 y/o WWII veteran James Pickett, who refused to be a robbery victim in his own home by shooting one of two teenaged thugs who broke into his house and threatened him with a knife. The feisty Pickett, in an interview with WFAA, warned the two perps not […]

 

National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC

Yes, amidst all the lying, backstabbing, under-the-table wheeling and dealing, and other trademark dirty tricks we routinely see coming out of Washington, DC, there is beauty to be seen there as well – in the form of the National Cherry Blossom Festival: The blooms of the 3,750 cherry trees that frame the Tidal Basin are […]

 

Who said it?

Posted by: ST on March 30, 2008 at 3:43 pm » 3 Comments

From a 2004 endorsement of John Kerry: “The real issue is this: Who would you rather have in charge of the defense of the United States of America, a group of people who never served a day overseas in their life, or a guy who served his country honorably and has three Purple Hearts and […]

 

Obama exaggerates family’s Kennedy connection

Posted by: ST on March 30, 2008 at 1:27 pm » 5 Comments

The Washington Post Fact Checker section catches BO in another example of him embellishing his and his family’s history: Addressing civil rights activists in Selma, Ala., a year ago, Sen. Barack Obama traced his “very existence” to the generosity of the Kennedy family, which he said paid for his Kenyan father to travel to America […]

 

Fitna pulled off of LiveLeak

Posted by: ST on March 28, 2008 at 9:09 pm » 7 Comments

Yesterday I blogged about Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders’ just-released 15 minute film Fitna, which was posted on numerous video sites, removed from some sites, and reposted at other video sites. LiveLeak was one of the few multimedia sites that kept up the anti-Islamofascism video instead of deleting it everytime a user posted it. Tonight we […]
