Leave The Dome Alone

July 31, 2007
By

Update: Charles has the background and original photo of a mosque in Brunei, which makes no sense to me when used for a survey of American voters, whatever their religion. And given this, which I already documented, I’m comfortable with exactly what I posted – CAIR has designs on the...

For The Record On Tillman

July 31, 2007
By

Sgt. Bryan O’Neal was next to Tillman when he was killed and he has spoken to the media recently. There is also video of his April Congressional testimony here. Had there been a plot to kill Tillman as some leftist idiots are suggesting, they would have killed O’Neal, as well. It...

It’s Attention That They Crave

July 31, 2007
By

So, Mike Stark isn’t content with embarrassing himself on CNN’s Reliable Sources. He has to take it to the next level by annoying several of Bill O’Reilly’s neighbors. But what is it he has achieved besides further marginalizing DailyKos among those not of the extreme and loony Left and apparently generating...

Report From FOB Falcon On Beauchamp TNR Affair

July 31, 2007
By

Matt Sanchez is at FOB Falcon – see his report here.

With the dangers of the real mission in mind, soldiers at the PAO are frustrated that the major media has chosen to focus on the negative, a common complaint I have heard among troops in both Iraq and...

But, We’re Winning, Right?

July 31, 2007
By

Hilarious. The Lefty Blogs are celebrating their big victory over Bill O’Reilly because Home Depot is not going to advertise on the show. Too bad Home Depot isn’t even on the O’Reilly advertiser list they themselves crafted.

But let’s not let the facts get in the way of such a big...

Cohen On Thompson: Guns Don’t Kill People, Hormones Do

July 31, 2007
By

The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen totally mis-characterizes Fred Thompson’s NRO piece on gun laws in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre. Cohen makes it appear as though Thompson was advocating some Wild West approach, allowing anyone and everyone to carry a concealed weapon. Cohen also appears to believe that there...

Are Anti-War Dems Going Wobbly?

July 31, 2007
By

Actually, they were born wobbly, but I suspect they have great plans to push as much bad news as they can on Iraq come early September. Still, it is good to note the many cracks in the liberal effort to undermine the war effort. Pundita has a round up.

Pelosi Scores Big Win In House

July 31, 2007
By

Not that the basic issue isn’t wasn’t important fifty years ago, but a resolution calling on John Murtha to apologize for maligning our forces would be a bit more timely. Or, they could condemn Chavez for his media crackdown, Castro for his tyranny, or address any number of other issues...

Citizen Journalism Gets $10.6 Mil Boost

July 31, 2007
By

Here’s the site: NowPublic, or Crowd Powered Media. It boasts almost 120,000 members in almost 4,000 cities. I did some clicking around, you can select rss feeds by location and there are several categories. It looks like they have some very good ideas, based upon their statements, anyway. See Places for...

Dems “Impressed” In Iraq

July 31, 2007
By

Via AJStrata: but I want to highlight some different passages from the article. If they come back and demand a flat out withdrawal, they are being intellectually dishonest, as well as selling out both our troops and the Iraqis with whom they met.

Ellison, a vocal critic of the Iraq war,...

Hell, Shoot The Bastard, Again, Why Don’t You?

July 31, 2007
By

I’m just fed up reading about this type of crime and while the details remain to be hashed out, it’s one of those crimes that most people will just turn away from in disgust at every level. She blew Daddy’s face off with a 12-gauge.

PITTSBURGH – A 13-year-old girl was charged...

If You Missed It – A War We Just Might Win

July 31, 2007
By

A reader emailed me a link to this version of the New York Times piece today:

A War We Just Might Win

I didn’t link it as it was an Op-Ed and wasn’t anything new for many blog...

WaPo: Just The Dumb “Scott Thomas” Letters, Please!

July 31, 2007
By

Given that this letter to the editor will likely also be published in the dead tree version of today’s paper, would anyone care to speculate as to how this adds anything to the Scott Thomas Beauchamp story, apart from delivering a wholly uninformed and mostly undeserved swipe at...

Good News For Iraqi Soccer Captain

July 30, 2007
By

The media is playing up a statement by the Captain of the Iraqi soccer team as regards his concerns over returning to Iraq. Fair enough. However, if he does go back, it’s doubtful he’ll be forced to play in a stadium that includes a torture chamber, as was the case...

Iraq: They’re On The Run

July 30, 2007
By

Not just al Qaeda, but it would seem the Democrats, too. But then, when your stock in trade is limited to surrender or retreat, should we really be surprised?

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly positive report on progress on Iraq by Army Gen. David Petraeus likely...

Did The Court Lurch Left?

July 30, 2007
By

Fortunately, Chief Justice Roberts appears to be fine, but when I read this from Maine and this via Instapundit, I was afraid he’d become a modern liberal.

The patient was ashen and was foaming at the mouth.

Roberts may require anti-seizure medication in the future given that this was a second occurrence.

The...

A New Global Warming Hurricane

July 30, 2007
By

Looks like another headline grabbing opportunity for the Global Warming crowd: Altantic hurricanes ‘doubling’ as world warms up

A STUDY has found about twice as many Atlantic hurricanes form each year on average than a century ago, largely as a result of greenhouse warming.

Yes, according to the National Center For Atmospheric Research,...

NAACP: QB Vick Isn’t Just Some Lacrosse Player

July 30, 2007
By

I had to look back at some history after reading the NAACP’s call for restraint in the Michael Vick dog fighting scandal. What I found, see below, from the NAACP on the now infamous Duke Non-Rape case was actually worse than what I had anticipated.

ATLANTA (AP) – NAACP leaders urged public...

Suing Street Gangs

July 30, 2007
By

Given the liberal tendency to view al Qaida’s terrorism as a criminal act and not an act of war, how long before our esteemed Democrat controlled Senate opts to drop a subpoena on Osama over there in the Tribal Regions instead of Special Forces? If nothing else, it would also...

Cry Baby

July 30, 2007
By

I think the biggest cry baby going in the blogosphere today has to be John Cole. But he’s been crying so long and so hard and it’s always so angry anymore, you’re left with nothing more than pity as a reaction, really. He just ends up looking more sad, than anything...
