You Betcha I Was

Has conservative genuflection at the altar of Sarah Palin finally come to a halt? In case you missed it, her speech in Iowa this week was not well received on the right. The Washington Examiner’s Byron York calledit a “long, rambling, and at times barely coherent speech" and National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke said she slipped into self-parody. And there’s more. The Examiner’s Eddie Scarry, for example, contacted several conservative bloggers who were once Palin fans, but have since moved on. But here’s my question…what changed? Yes, in 2008, Sarah Palin delivered one of the finest convention speeches I’ve ever heard (trust

Attorney General Nominee Loretta
Lynch: I Haven´t Been Briefed on The
IRS Scandal and Therefore Can´t Comment

During testimony and questioning from lawmakers Wednesday on Capitol Hill, attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch failed to answer questions about the Department of Justice role in the IRS targeting scandal, arguing because she hasn´t been briefed on the case in her capacity as U.S. Attorney, she can´t comment. "With regards to the actions of any of the agencies in our government there is certainly no place for bias, or favortism, or anything other than the even handed application of the relevant laws and regulations. Certainly, that has always been my goal as a prosecutor and would be my continued goal

Seattle to Fine Residents for Throwing
Food in the Garbage

In an attempt to shame residents of their city, a new Seattle law will levy a fine on homes that do not properly sort food out of their garbage. Emblazoned with a red citation tag, violators will start to be fined anywhere from $1-$50 in July. For now, Seattle residents will be publicly shamed by the ‘Scarlet Letter’-like tags.

You can put that in your compost bin and buy it back next year in a bag and put it in your

Top Pentagon officials and a senior Democrat in Congress so distrusted Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2011 march to war in Libya that they opened their own diplomatic channels with the Gadhafi regime in an effort to halt the escalating crisis, according to secret audio recordings recovered from Tripoli. The tapes, reviewed by The Washington Times and authenticated by the participants, chronicle U.S. officials’ unfiltered conversations with Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s son and a top Libyan leader, including criticisms that Mrs. Clinton had developed tunnel vision and led the U.S. into an unnecessary war without adequately weighing the intelligence community’s

Islamic State militants have threatened to behead Barack Obama and turn the U.S. into a Muslim province in the latest gruesome video to emerge from their self-styled caliphate. The footage shows a black-clad jihadist standing over a Kurdish soldier who, in a sickening climax to the video, has his head cut off. Before the hostage is executed, the ISIS fighter warns the U.S. president: ´Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. ´Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province.´ Scroll down for video

Jesse Ventura Won´t See ´American

MINNEAPOLIS — American Sniper is tops at the box office but don’t expect to see former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura lining up at a theater for it. Ventura, a former Navy SEAL, won $1.8 million in a defamation lawsuit last year against the estate of the late Chris Kyle, the SEAL protagonist of the movie, which has sparked debate over whether snipers should be considered heroes. Ventura said Wednesday he won’t see the film partly because Kyle is no hero to him. "A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can’t have honor if you’re a liar. There

Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham leaning
towards confirming Loretta Lynch as AG

Actually, Hatch isn’t leaning. He’s onboard. Just as he was in confirming Eric Holder, a few years before he ran for reelection in Utah as the Senate’s oldest, strongest conservative. Following this morning’s hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, Senator Hatch said: The Justice Department is in dire need of new leadership. For too long its decisions have been politicized and its leaders have facilitated executive abuses by this President rather than upholding the rule of law. Throughout her confirmation hearing, Ms. Lynch has demonstrated her qualifications and made specific commitments

The Obamas landed back in Washington DC in the early morning hours of Wednesday after spending just a few hours in Saudi Arabia. The pair appeared tired from the international flight as they stepped off Air Force One - the president smiled and waved to the waiting press, but Mrs Obama kept her eyes down. As they walked towards the White House at 3:30am, Mr Obama held his wife´s hand in a supportive gesture after she spent the previous day in Saudi Arabia, where dozens of Saudi officials refused to shake her hand. Their three-day trip to India had been cut short

At The New York Times, it seems, some key facts are just not fit to print when they don’t fit the liberal narrative. That appears to be the case with Charles Blow’s column in Monday’s edition of the paper. It was about how his son, a student at Yale, had been “accosted by a campus police officer, at gunpoint!” Blow, who is black, described his horror at learning how the officer questioned his son, Tahj, who’s also black, with gun drawn — presumably because of his son’s race. “In these moments,” he wrote, “what you’ve done matters less than how you look.” In

The Illegal Bergdahl Deal: Sordid

Multiple news sources are now reporting that the US Army is charging Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl -- the American soldier handed over by terrorist hostage takers in exchange for the release of five high-ranking Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay last spring -- with desertion. This comes as no surprise for those who followed the Bergdahl controversy closely; as Katie reminded us earlier, Bergdahl´s platoon mates unanimously spoke out against his actions. The evidence of his desertion is overwhelming. Other facts suggest that he may have crossed a line into active collaboration with the enemy. Despite the fact that the military had

There’s no denying it. Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” has struck a chord with the American people, and did so by tapping into the deepest civic values we have as Americans – duty, honor, fidelity, courage, love for country…and a love for others. However, no war movie can live on the big screen without a spew of liberal backlash, and this film is no different. Criticism has come quickly from Michael Moore, Seth Rogen, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and other Hollywood leftists. Thankfully, some things speak louder than cowardly tweets—like the more than $200 million in ticket sales the movie has raked

Sarah Palin and her onetime

They’re over her. Sarah Palin’s odd, rambling speech last weekend before an audience of committed conservative activists in Des Moines has many influential voices on the right saying that the time has come to acknowledge that the romance has gone cold and the marriage is dead. This is despite the fact that the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee told reporters upon her arrival at the event that she is “seriously interested” in running for president in 2016. Her address was a 34 1/2 -minute roller coaster ride of cliches, non sequiturs and warmed-over grievances. One line that stood out: “GOP leaders,
