Obama's foreign policy triumph in Libya: U.S. embassy evacuated

We have a surprise winner in the Saigon Embassy Evacuation Sweepstakes... surprising, that is, to anyone who hasn't been paying attention to the steady disintegration of Barack Obama's foreign policy "triumph" in Libya.  Those who placed their bets on the Baghdad embassy being the first to bail can only watch, disappointed, as F-16 fighter jets and MV-22 tilt-rotor Ospreys cover the American diplomatic retreat from Tripoli, with nary a YouTube video protest in sight.  Fox News reports: Jul 26, 2014 6:23 AM PT

The very expensive death of the Chevy Volt

I've been a student of the Chevy Volt electric-car debacle since the first time I took a stab at figuring out the actual per-unit cost of each car, with the subsidies figured in.  The thing launched with a sticker price of $41,000, but direct state and federal subsidies - i.e. taxpaying chumps forced at gunpoint to pay for part of your shiny new electric car - could take it down to $33,500 or less.  But if you figured in all the subsidies those taxpayer chumps were forced to give manufacturers, they really cost at least $81,000 apiece.  You paid $33k or so, while people who will never drive a Volt, and maybe never buy a Chevy, covered the rest.

Happy ending: Meriam Ibrahim arrives in Rome, meets with Pope Francis

At long last, Meriam Ibrahim - the Christian woman sentenced to death for "apostasy" in Sudan, and forced to give birth to her second child while chained to a wall - has escaped the clutches of what passes for the Sudanese legal system, and arrived in Rome en route to the United States, as reported by CNN: Jul 24, 2014 8:22 AM PT

Ted Cruz is much more entertaining than 'True Blood'

Breaking news: a fading television show lumbering through its final season makes a desperate bid for attention by creating a "controversy."  Such was the plan when the silly, but once-upon-a-time entertaining, HBO vampire show "True Blood" unleashed its writers' inner demons with some uncalled-for Republican-bashing, which went as far as one character using some straight-up War on Women rhetoric to dismiss conservative women attending a fictitious Ted Cruz appearance as "Republi-c**ts."   Jul 23, 2014 11:15 AM PT

The great inflation debate

The argument over whether inflation is a big problem, whose extent has been concealed by government agencies and the media, has been growing more vigorous over the past few weeks.  Not everyone who thinks inflation fears are exaggerated is a big-government leftist or Obama defender.  James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute, writing at The Week, goes so far as to dismiss inflation fears as "doomsday prepper economics" and a "weird obsession that's ruining the GOP."

Ted Cruz helps out with border relief effort

Glenn Beck says the media is refusing to cover Senator Ted Cruz's participation in his Mercury One border relief effort because they're already trying to influence the 2016 presidential race, and don't want to give Cruz any positive coverage as a humanitarian: Jul 19, 2014 12:59 PM PT

The True Size of the Adult Immigration Wave, Revealed

One of the reasons people have grown so angry over Obama's manufactured border crisis is that everything we are told is a lie.  That's consistent with the core Amnesty Caucus belief that the benighted knuckle-dragging xenophobic citizens of the United States have nothing to say about immigration policy - it's a decision that will be made by the Ruling Class, in accordance with their political and economic interests.  You taxpaying chumps will be told whatever the Ruling Class thinks you need to hear, whenever they think you need to hear it, with the truth either suppressed or kept on ice until it doesn't matter any more.

What will remain of ObamaCare?

The residents of Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands just won the lottery, because the royal Obama court hath decreed that they shall be free from the seething morass of suck known as ObamaCare.   Jul 18, 2014 1:35 PM PT

The Myth of the Central American Apocalypse

While we're busy retiring the phony Obama talking point about how a 2008 anti-human-trafficking law means he can't do anything to repel the human wave coming out of Central America, let's also dispense with the equally bogus talking point that it's a sudden "refugee" crisis caused by an abrupt surge of violence in the countries of origin.

The silence of the void

I've been fascinated by the search for extraterrestial life since I was a little kid, so I wasted no time clicking on the Drudge Report's headline about NASA saying that the discover of intelligent life on other worlds was less than 20 years away.  Alas, it turns out to be just a CBS News report about NASA holding a press conference to tout its plans to search for E.T.s, and playing the numbers game to confidently assert that success must be right around the corner: Jul 15, 2014 9:36 AM PT
