Washington Post Fact-Checker Glenn Kessler Taunts Michele Bachmann

Jul 23, 2014 8:31 AM PT

Glenn Kessler, the objective, unbiased, not-at-all-liberal fact-checker for the Washington Post, took to Twitter Wednesday morning to troll and taunt Rep. Michele Bachmann after news broke that the retiring Minnesota congresswoman might pursue the presidency again in 2016.

Vox: Hamas Uses Human Shields So Israel Should Stand Down

Jul 17, 2014 4:37 PM PT

Vox's Max Fisher has a story today which acknowledges that, yes, Hamas is a group of terrorists using human shields, including children, in its war against Israel. But why, Vox asks, does Israel insist on fighting back.

Only the people responsible can know for sure why Palestinian militants would use civilian buildings, but any real possibility is bad. Maybe militant groups use civilian buildings like this UN school simply because they don't mind the danger this creates for the Palestinians they claim to protect. Maybe it's because they are hoping that the rockets will be safer in a UN school because Israel won't want to bomb it, which means using Palestinians kids and teachers as human shields. An argument you hear from Hamas's harshest critics is that they are hoping Israel will target the schools, thus rallying people to their side.


Here's the thing, though: while incidents like this force Israel to decide between bombing civilian structures or allowing Hamas to use those structures as rocket storage depots, it does not actually force Israel to choose to bomb civilian buildings. It is entirely within Israel's power to not bomb civilian buildings.

NBC News Fails to Blow Border Crisis Back On GOP (So Far)

Jul 14, 2014 6:11 AM PT

Last week I reported on a cynical and highly partisan attempt by NBC News (Mark Murray and Chuck Todd, specifically) to angle their coverage of the ongoing border crisis in a way that would blow back on the GOP.

The news outlet had hoped the rest of the media would join them in making the border crisis as big of a problem for Republicans as it currently is for President Obama. The ploy was to attack the GOP for not handing Obama the $3.7 billion blank check he asked for to "fix" the crisis.

What you earn vs. what you 'deserve'

Jul 7, 2014 2:58 PM PT

In response to ''USA Today' Knows Nothing About the American Dream:

If you'll permit me a bit of drive-by cross-linking, this is part of what I was talking about earlier with the "Takers who are also Makers" post.  Part of the dependency process is convincing people that they "deserve" far more than they earn, which makes them resent the people who already have those things... and fills them with rage at anyone who suggests they should work hard to get what they want.

''USA Today' Knows Nothing About the American Dream

Jul 7, 2014 11:07 AM PT

According to the USA Today, the American Dream has a price tag of $130,000 for a family of four. If you are not living in a $275,000 home, spending $13,000 a year on food, driving a four-wheel-drive SUV, and spending $9,000 a year on vacations, cable television, clothes, Internet, and a cell phone -- you've failed.

According to the paper, 7 out of 8 Americans have failed.

Defense of Child Rapist Is Hillary's Seamus the Dog Story

Jun 20, 2014 1:01 PM PT

In a presidential campaign the candidate's biography is everything. That's why the media pushed a three decade old story about Mitt Romney's dog at every opportunity. It's why they have no excuse but to give Hillary Clinton's defense of a 41-year-old man who raped a 12-year-old girl the same attention.

In 2012 the entire political world was seized by fascination with a three decade old story about a dog. Back in 1983, Romney put Seamus the dog in a carrier on the roof of the family station wagon. The dog became sick and Romney cleaned it off with a hose and kept driving.
