Posted by: ST on September 29, 2015 at 7:17 pm » 4 Comments

Courtesy of a retweet yesterday, I came across a column journo/author/business woman Soledad O’Brien praised and shared with her audience on Twitter, one that was written by a Facebook executive by the name of Margaret Gould Stewart. Stewart is the Director of Product Design at Facebook and developed a serious case of the vapors over […]

**Posted by Phineas Sigh. While speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, Obama warned against insulting religions, just because one has the right to do so. In the process, he engaged in some intellectually lazy moral equivalence: “Humanity’s been grappling with these questions throughout human history, and unless we get on our high horse and think […]

**Posted by Phineas I have no words left, I think, to describe what a fatuous buffoon this man is, so I’ll let the Secretary of State of the United States speak for himself: Secretary of State John Kerry said the threats posed by climate change should be addressed with as much “immediacy” as confronting the Islamic […]

**Posted by Phineas No, really. The break room coffee machine is a staple of many a workplace. Usually though, it tends to fall on the “economical” or “value” side of the java spectrum. But not in Castro Valley, California, where officials with the Castro Valley Unified School District are taking fire for the purchase of […]

**Posted by Phineas Federal senators deal with issues of national and international importance, including matters of war and peace, and overall national security. You would think, then, that someone wishing to ascend to the Senate would at least know the basics about a game-changing weapon wielded by one of our key allies, who happens to be […]

 

Surprisingly not The Onion: John Kerry as the new Winston Churchill

Posted by: Phineas on May 1, 2014 at 3:52 pm » 7 Comments

**Posted by Phineas (Image via Greg Nash / Getty Images) I realize The Hill leans a bit left, and Budowsky himself is a hardcore liberal, but either he had the “special mushrooms” for dinner last night, or he was laughing uncontrollably while writing this: Looking across the landscape of world affairs, from sectarian carnage to Middle […]

 

John Kerry focuses the State Department like a laser… On climate change

Posted by: Phineas on March 10, 2014 at 1:40 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Because, as we all know, Man-caused climate change the Dread Demon Carbon Dioxide is the “world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” a threat we have to deal with now and with all our efforts. Not nukes in the hands of Iranian mullahs yearning to bring about their version of the Apocalypse. […]

 

Taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood marketing BDSM to teens?

Posted by: Phineas on February 27, 2014 at 5:39 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas I’m pretty open-minded, but this is a bit much, even for me: Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)–which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012–has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging […]

**Posted by Phineas And you thought the Nanny State’s “war on child entrepreneurs” was over, after the Great Lemonade Stand War of 2010-11. I’m sorry to say, my friends, that the enemy, enterprising children who want to earn a little money, has opened a new front, threatening us all with the horror of unregulated micro-businesses.

Obama issues mind-numbingly contradictory statement on #RoeAt41

Posted by: ST on January 22, 2014 at 6:30 pm » 3 Comments

Let’s play “spot the contradiction”, shall we? President Obama issued a statement today on the 41st anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision by expressing his continued commitment to being one of the most radically far leftist Presidents on this issue in American history.  Here’s the statement in full (hat tip): Today, as we reflect […]
