The world as we find it

The initial reports from the Los Angeles Times described the massacre of almost 30 women in the Zayouna neighborhood of Baghdad as an unsolved mystery: “gunmen in Iraq reportedly kill at least 30 in upscale Baghdad area”. (Snip) It was not long before a more sinister motive made itself plain. The murder site was a brothel. The gunmen came in order to kill every one in it and teach the world an Islamic lesson. “Police believe men using silenced

Comments:
As Wretchard writes, Western politicos have cheapened the language by defining "War on Women" as kowtowing to Sandra Fluke and her ilk when Christian organizations that cover sixteen forms of contraception deny free coverage of four abortifacients. In Baghdad over two dozen prostitutes are slaughtered in a real war on woman, and about the only place you´ll read of it is here.

Why does OP continually refer to Richard Fernandez as "Wretchard"? Is there a joke I´m missing?

Were they Sunni or Shiite prostitutes? Sandra Fluke should stop complaining and pay for her own intercourses or, better still, get someone to pay for the pleasure. The war on women lie, started by little Stephanopulus, worked very well for the Socialists.

Posted By: Hazymac- 8/3/2014 8:14:23 PM     Post Reply
We’re coming up shortly on the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resignation, which coincides with the publication of Rick Perlstein’s new doorstop, The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan, about which more—much more—in due course. (Snip) You can read my entire chapter about this, or you can take in this 22-minute segment of The American Mind with Professor John Marini of the University of Nevada at Reno, which nails it. Nixon had a serious plan in his second term to tame Congress and the bureaucracy. So he had to be stopped by any means necessary.

A 20-year-old North Carolina man died and 20 others were hospitalized after a rash of apparent drug overdoses at an electronic music concert in Maryland on Friday night, police said. Tyler Fox Viscardi, of Raleigh was rushed from the Mad Decent Block Party at Meriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia around 9 p.m., according to a statement released by the Howard County Police Department. He was pronounced dead at Howard County General Hospital a short time later, police said. A 17-year-old from Virginia remained in critical condition at the same hospital on Saturday, according to the release. Police do not believe

AKRON, Ohio -- Sergio Garcia doesn´t know anything about being in a zone. He had no trouble identifying the best round of his career. Garcia one-putted the final 11 holes and made birdies on his last seven holes Friday in the Bridgestone Invitational to tie the course record at Firestone with a 9-under 61 and take a three-shot lead into the weekend. He had a birdie putt on every hole on the back nine, missing only a 15-footer from the fringe at No. 11. Garcia shot 27 on the back nine, a course record. "Just one of those moments that

One day after PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson announced he would miss the rest of the season to take a "leave of absence," Golf.com is reporting that his hiatus is actually a six-month suspension for a positive cocaine test. The PGA Tour issued a response Friday saying Johnson´s leave is voluntary and not a suspension. "With regard to media reports that Dustin Johnson has been suspended by the PGA Tour, this is to clarify that Mr. Johnson has taken a voluntary leave of absence and is not under a suspension by the PGA Tour," the Tour told WLTX (Columbia, SC)

Changeling Charlie’s vow

Now that everyone’s favorite Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat has announced he is prepared to go Total Obama from Day 1 if he’s restored to the governor’s mansion, voters can’t be blamed for wondering whether Charlie Crist really wants the job. Maybe he’s already moved on to the Next Big Thing. After all, the most recent polls indicate thorough dissatisfaction with President Obama. Not only is he upside-down on virtually every measurable facet of his job performance, CNN recently and famously found if we took an election mulligan, the golfer-in-chief would lose to Republican Mitt Romney in a landslide. Nonetheless, here comes Crist, within

The siege of Baghdad continues as ISIS gnaws at Baghdad’s links to its field armies. (Snip) The NYT sheds tears for the destruction of Iraq’s cultural artifacts. “It is not just religious monuments like the prophet Jonah’s tomb that have been destroyed, but also statues of Abu Tammam, a famous Arab poet, and Mullah Othman, a beloved 19th-century musician and poet.” In this orgy of destruction is the key question is who’s on first? Just what the Obama administration is trying to achieve is not clear. David Francis writes in CNBC that Iraq is now a proxy war between the

In his never-ending quest to win the far-left Nobel Peace Prize, John Kerry has deliberately put the security of the state of Israel at greater risk. Sadly, and quite dangerously, this is nothing new for Kerry. In January of this year, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, recognizing Mr. Kerry’s self-serving endgame, said: “American Secretary of State John Kerry, who turned up here determined and acting out of misplaced obsession and messianic fervor, cannot teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians … the only thing that can ‘save us’ is for John Kerry to win a Noble Prize

It may come as a shock well-educated Westerners that Communists can be corrupt. (Snip) Despite the recent boom which produced goodies to go around, the competition between factions is so great that last week China was openly wracked by the biggest purge since the bad old days of Mao and the Gang of Four. To appreciate the scale of the purge, imagine a man with the police power of Eric Holder, the wealth of Bill Gates and the prominence of Al Gore arrested — together with US senators, former cabinet secretaries and hundreds of merely prominent people and headed for

Ms. Hillary´s pinpoint strikes

In an interview with Jorge Ramos Fusion TV, Ms. Hillary was asked about civilian deaths in Gaza. Hamas treats civilian death statistics as propaganda and carefully nurtures them. They are treated as gospel and routinely recited by the media without reservation. Bret Stephens took up the issue in an important Wall Street Journal column yesterday, addressing the officials and policymakers who use the statistics to criticize Israel or promote a ceasefire or the like. Stephens’s column is “Palestine makes you dumb” (behind the Journal’s annoying subscription paywall but accessible via Google). In the video below, Ms. Hillary touches all the

NEW YORK – Don´t worry about me. The Sharknado Evacuation map supplied by Syfy network places me, as a resident of Lower Manhattan, smack in the zone most in peril this sharknado season. But I´ll be ready. You might as well batten down the hatches, too. "Sharknado 2: The Second One" (which, if you hadn´t guessed, is an encore follow-up sequel to last summer´s campy classic) premieres Wednesday. The original "Sharknado" depicted a weather aberration on the Southern California coast that caused bloodthirsty sharks to rain on hapless Angelenos.

The Five Strangest Rules in Baseball

At 240 pages, Major League Baseball´s rule book is dense, and it is only growing denser. Last winter alone, the league added three new rules and amended six others—and that doesn´t even count the two rules it has amended since this season began. But for all its love of new legislation, MLB has shown little inclination to delete rules that have long ceased being relevant. As a result, the rule book has become baseball´s version of the tax code, dotted with obscurities and oddities whose existence are unknown even to many players and managers. On the off chance that "Official

The Washington Post and the New York Times disagree on the who’s leading the charge in imposing new sanctions on Russia. (Snip) James Nixey, head of the Russia and Eurasia program at the London-based think tank Chatham House said “the truth is we beat Russia in the Cold War, particularly due to our economic strength, and we can do so again if we’re unified.” But unified under whom? The sense conveyed by both the NYT and the WaPo is that Obama is now a peer among equals. Boehner may have decided not to impeace Obama as president of the United

Former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank questioned President Obama’s honesty regarding the rollout of Obamacare in a recent interview. He told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was shocked at the mishandling of the new health care law. “The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled—I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” the former Democratic congressman told the website. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people,”

That seems like an awfully strong word, but it is the term that distinguished law professor Glenn Reynolds, no hysteric, uses to describe the Obama administration’s oft-reported plan to issue executive amnesty to five or six million illegal immigrants in violation of federal law. Glenn’s characterization is a fair one. When a tyrant asserts the right to rule by decree in a state that has formerly been subject to the rule of law, he is commonly described as carrying out a coup d’etat. That is just what the Obama administration has done, and reportedly will continue to do. When Obama changed

White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett says Israeli strikes near civilian havens in Gaza were indefensible. "This is why the cease-fire is so important," Jarrett said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´ "Face the Nation." "It´s a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel´s staunchest ally. But you also can´t condone the killing of all of these innocent children." President Barack Obama, she said, was concerned and frustrated by the ongoing violence despite efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. "I think everyone involved is frustrated," Jarrett

Dear “Conservatives” and “Establishment Republicans,” I write today in the hope you all can get over whatever anger, distrust or bruised egos this primary season and political year has caused you. We on the right need to unite and send a message to progressives by unambiguously retaking the U.S. Senate in November. We all have some problem with what’s happened so far. Someone we liked lost a primary. Someone we didn’t won. Some piece of legislation we hate passed; some other piece we liked did not. No one is completely happy, but we all know things can get much worse – and

The events of the past few weeks on America’s southern border bring into clearer focus the Obama pledge to fundamentally transform America. By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacationland for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.

The BBC has enraged Muslim staff after holding a hog roast to celebrate the Commonwealth Games - under the windows of the Arabic TV service. An entire pig was spit-roasted in the courtyard of New Broadcasting House, central London, with wafts of meat drifting up to the predominantly Muslim office. Staff in the department whose religion bans them from eating pork blasted the ´horror´ at spotting the carcass on their lunch break. The event on Friday, celebrating the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, was held just days after the close of Ramadan, a month of fasting for Muslims for spiritual reflection.

The obsession by the Obama-Kerry administration with imposing a cease-fire on the warring parties in the Hamas-Israel war will go down in history as one of the most strategic mistakes in military history. Here is a fact the administration deliberately and maliciously ignored: In the history of modern warfare, no terrorist group has ever honored a cease-fire. Hamas has broken every cease-fire it ever said it would honor. Every single one. Even the Israel-Hamas 2012 cease fire, brokered by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was simply agreed to by Hamas to give it an opportunity to restock its military arsenal, pressure Israel

At Chapman School in Nebraska, resourceful students hawk pizza and cookie dough to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. They peddle chocolate bars to help fund the yearbook. But the sales won´t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population.

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama dismissed Russia as a nation that "doesn´t make anything" and said in an interview with the Economist magazine that the West needs to be "pretty firm" with China as Beijing pushes to expand its role in the world economy. (Snip) Russia is the world´s third-largest oil producer and second-largest natural gas producer. Europe relies heavily on Russian energy exports, complicating the West´s response to the Ukraine crisis. Obama downplayed Moscow´s role in the world, dismissing President Vladimir Putin as a leader causing short-term trouble for political gain that will hurt Russia in the long term.
