The lesson of the capture of the second Boston bomber couldn’t be clearer: you want to find a fugitive, don’t treat a community like an obstruction. Encourage its initiative. Shortly after the “authorities” admitted defeat in their day-long imprisonment of an entire city, a homeowner finally released from his “lock down” found their prey for [...]
Could the Stupid Party be actually, truly, you know, “investigating” the Benghazi murders? There’s a new warning from House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to the legal offices of CIA, Defense and State to start helping their tattling employees lawyer up for anticipated Democrat revenge in public hearings to come. Remains to be seen [...]
I admire most of what I find in National Review. There aren’t that many good conservative publications in America which is swamped with Leftist newspapers and magazines that only pretend to be impartial. But National Review is just as capable of screwing up. And such is NR’s championing of a belligerent veteran who lives near [...]
The White House (and snooze media) cover up continues, but now 700 retired special operators (including two Medal of Honor recipients and five retired lieutenant generals) are urging the Republican House to investigate. Makes sense to me. I’m only surprised the Stupid Party hasn’t started doing this already. If the sheer size of this group of [...]
Actually, it’s the U.S. battlewagons of 1945, entering Lingayen Gulf in the Phillipines. You can tell the war by that bedsprings thingie perched atop the mast of the battleship in the foreground—an early iteration of radar. Notice the guns trained up. By 1945, Japanese fighter-bombers were their deadliest foe. Apropos of nothing, though it’s too bad [...]
What a brilliant book, this epic of Italy in the first world war, with touches of the later rise of fascism and the contemptible Mussolini. It’s a dense story with much complexity about music, culture and love, in addition to the expected combat sequences. A few of the longer sentences are a bit hard to [...]
Mark Steyn has it pretty succinct, the reason why I will try to discourage Mr. B. from following his father, grandfathers, and other ancestors in joining the American military. It lately seems more interested in slotting women into the infantry and decrying the dangers of global warming than training and fighting to win wars. “But [...]
Our ever-dawdling president is intensifying his campaign to take small arms away from Americans while he allows the bad guys to threaten us with nukes. Finally starting to get the idea that North Korea just might really take an ICBM potshot at our West Coast, Barry’s fervent brain hatches an idea. When he and his [...]

Lurch’s stutter the other day, when questioned by Fox News (but without any followup question, shame on Fox) about why the Ben Ghazi “embassy” survivors are not available for interviews, was really priceless. What a doofus. The whole thing is disgusting. It underscores how the Democrat snooze media covers for their president. If he was a [...]
