Emmanuel Macron French Election

The French election provides another entry in the “Do Progressives even listen to themselves?” category

Macron’s victory in the French election has provided Progressives with another opportunity to reveal their hypocrisy, stupidity, and all-around nastiness. I had a marvelous trip this past weekend, and came back yearning to blog, only to find waiting for me a legal project with a tight deadline. While I work

[VIDEO] When human hyenas circle their prey, having this helps *UPDATED*

A video has emerged from France purportedly showing a gang of Muslim immigrants armed with rocks and truncheons, descending upon a lone French man.  The way these human predators slowly close in on the Frenchman reminds me of nothing so much as hyenas encircling a wounded lion or elephant.  If this video is

John Oliver’s potty mouth ravings reveal what’s wrong with the Left’s approach to Islamic jihad

John Kerry is a rather frustrating Secretary of State, not just because he’s uniformly awful, but because he’s so stupid there’s nothing left to parody. The guy parodies himself. Take, for example, his deep and profound statement following last Friday’s Islamic massacre in Paris. It is a tour de force

The Left’s inordinate fear of speaking Islam’s name #Paris

The Bookworm Beat 10-29-15 — the spindle overload edition and open thread

So much to share with you (23 separate articles at last count) and so little time. I’ll therefore get right down to business and you might want to give yourself some time to review all these fascinating articles at your leisure: Another pundit figures out Cruz might be the man

The Bookworm Beat 10-27-15 — “it’s just another day” edition and open thread

I’ve been going through my emails, with 200 down, 300 or so yet to go. Even though I’m only less than halfway through, I’ve discovered marvelous articles hiding in my email box thanks to friends from all over. Did Merkel unilaterally doom Europe? We no longer subscribe to the great man

Take up Charlie Hebdo’s fallen banner and proudly display some Mohamed in your life *UPDATED*

Parisians apparently turned out en masse to honor the Charlie Hebdo murder victims. It’s too late to wonder whether these weeping Parisians could have prevented this massacre if, over the years, they’d shown the same courage as the Charlie Hebdo editor, cartoonists, and staff. Perhaps if they’d stood up for their culture,

Jerusalem — and Paris

The French Foreign Ministry has taken umbrage at the notion that Israel claims sole proprietorship over its capital city, Jerusalem.  Never mind that those who wish to share Jerusalem with the Israelis (a) deny that Israel even exists and (b) would like to see all of Israel’s Jewish citizens dead.
