Prior to this, a heavily militarized Ferguson police force was really doing no one in the law enforcement community a favor when they suited up in heavier-than-normal protection (they looked like | Read More »
The news coming out of Ferguson, MO caused me to experience the equivalent of a bad acid flashback without the initial fun of tripping on LSD. I went back in time to 1999. I was in Grad School at UCLA getting vastly over-credentialed for the job market and educated far beyond my limited frontiers of cognitive ability. There was this scurvy pack of guys I | Read More »

I ran into a guy I know at the gym the other day, a card-carrying liberal from Berkeley. He was puzzled. “Why didn’t Obama go down to the border?” he wanted to know. When a lefty from lib Mecca is wondering what the heck is going on, you know the president has a problem. In…

To properly understand the true commitment that the Post-modern American University makes to robust, open debate and diversity of thought, it helps to remember what happened when a Women’s Studies Professor at University of California Santa Barbara encountered an anti-abortion protest on her campus. The Professor, Mireille Miller-Young, noticed that 16 Year-Old Girl, Thrin Short, of Survivors of The Abortion Holocaust, was holding up a | Read More »
Late Thursday morning, an attorney for special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, who is leading a once-secret probe into conservative groups in Wisconsin, released a bombshell statement on behalf of his boss. When documents related to the probe became public last week, state and national media outlets tripped over themselves to explain how they implicated Gov.

Scott Walker and his allies violated campaign finance laws during the Wisconsin recall elections. While the paper prides itself on its national audience and standing as a newspaper of record, it miserably failed to present the facts in a clear, lucid fashion. By burying key | Read More »

Ignore, for a minute, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and the erasure of seven hard drives at the IRS. Yes, ignore all that for a moment. While the media is doing its best to avoid that subject, with difficulty, it is absolutely and willfully ignoring another IRS scandal that, had it happened in the Bush Administration, would be the lead story of every nightly | Read More »
