...is Charles Johnson attacking those who don't fall for this bunk. Well tomorrow is another year and to my knowledge he still hasn't changed sides on Israel so there is still a slight hope for him, but I wouldn't want to make book on when that will change.
Nope this isn't a post about my predictions for 2011 this is instead about predictions in the past that have become busts: It is always entertaining to look at predictions from the past, and see how far off they were. In the 1920s, the assumption was that by the 1950s, we would all be getting … Continue reading Predictions old and new
The internet has many interesting side effects the most pronounced being that when you make a fool of yourself you are going to be called on it.

Now … Continue reading I regret talking about those death panels that aren’t really there

As I been reading the continuing commentary on the Washington Post piece that has really got the attention of bloggers and readers from the daily pundit "DADT as the reason for ROTC’s banning was always a sham. Now the mask is finally off. The elite professoriat doesn’t hate ROTC because of DADT, they hate ROTC … Continue reading A side thought about the military and the left
If you only listen to the MSM you might not realize that long before anyone was talking about open homosexuality in the military universities on the left were banning ROTC. Those on the left used DADT as a convenient mask to justify such bans on grounds other than "I hate the US military" In the … Continue reading I guess the dirty little secret about the left and ROTC is out
One of the things that is always of note is how the left in particular likes to play with language to change opinion.

but the contrast is stunning. First Juan Williams “‘There’s nobody out there, except for Sarah Palin, who can absolutely dominate the stage, and she can’t stand on the intellectual stage with Obama,’ Williams said. “Palin, like Williams, is a Fox News contributor. And when Williams was fired by National Public Radio this year after saying … Continue reading I’m late to this Sarah Palin story
In his latest he laments the possibility that Israel will cease to be a democracy. Although on topic Israel Matzav answers him the better question is this. Why isn't Jeffrey denouncing the lack of democracy among Israel's enemies? The idea that this fellow who worships at the altar of Fidel Castro is crying about the … Continue reading What a phony Jeffrey Goldberg is
...with part of his conclusion here: One expects such chiseling dishonesty from Sullivan, and such impishness from McCain (and, of course, both are trolling for links), but apparently Sullivan’s readers are harder to fool than you might think. Although McCain is indeed trolling for links successfully I might add (who has apologized stating he had … Continue reading I have to take issue with Professor Reynolds

I have long maintained that the White House has purposely withheld the president's long form birth certificate not because it shows that he wasn't born in the US but because it shows he was. My theory being the president wanted the birther movement to continue to be strong on the right to give him and … Continue reading Chris Matthews and the White House go to plan B
