August recess

Here’s Richard Lindzen, the M.I.T. climatologist who has been trying to stop the hysteria for a long time: The notion of a static, unchanging climate is foreign to the history of the earth or any other planet with a fluid … Continue reading

As I was saying…

William Tucker at The America Spectator illustrates a point I made here (in the “another scenario” toward the end) a few days ago: In any case, there’s a much better example of how Gates could have responded. In The Autobiography … Continue reading

Here’s an outline for a federal gun law

Anyone who cares to, who isn’t a violent felon or a mental case, can carry a handgun without further aideu, carry it on his person, across state lines, with the full protection of the 2nd and 14th amendments and the … Continue reading

CSI: Albany

Fred Siegel has the body of the Empire State on the autopsy table. This one’s a floater. Been in the water for a few decades. So dab a little Vicks in each nostril and light a bad cigar if you … Continue reading

Deck chairs, Titanic

God bless Sol Stern for trying to find ways to untangle the plot of the bad gothic novel that is New York City’s public school system. But after sowing kids with confusion, despair, unreality, ignorance and everyday fear, I hardly … Continue reading

Obama’s comment at his press conference…

…on the Henry Louis Gates Jr. arrest in Cambridge was stupid. Here is some actual reporting, from Bloomberg, on the incident. Note that the joint statement issued from Gates, the police, et al. clearly says the whole thing was a … Continue reading

End of world…

…cancelled, again. Vaclav Klaus will be smiling when he sees that. I bet that most readers of the New York Times will never see it, however. I’d be pleasantly shocked if they did. When the hoax has run its course, … Continue reading

In plain terms

Sowell: As for those uninsured Americans we keep hearing about, there is remarkably little interest in why they don’t have insurance. It cannot be poverty, for the poor can automatically get Medicaid. In fact, we already know that there are … Continue reading

Reg Fleming was 73

I didn’t remember his face, but couldn’t forget the name. He was one of the NHL’s classic enforcers: Fleming spent 12 full seasons in the N.H.L. from 1960 to 1971, playing 749 games, scoring 108 goals and compiling 1,468 penalty … Continue reading

The academic depravity behind the Sotomayor curtain

Heather Mac Donald, as usual, takes on the heavy lifting. She’s just providing a brief introduction to the “critical legal theory” now saturating the ideological blotters of law schools. It’s the heartland of American auto-cannibalism.

Honest to God…

…this is the most direct, essential, funny take on you stupid bastards (and you know who you are) that I’ve seen. And it comes out of the past from some Madison Avenue genius who blew a few laughs into the … Continue reading

Justice Sotomayor

Eh. I’m embarrassed to say I have watched so many of those Senate confirmation hearings for SCOTUS nominees that they strike me now as no more than a somnambulist’s ritual. Senators Hatch and Leahy have been there so long that … Continue reading

Obama’s science czar

I’ll associate myself with Mr. Beck’s remarks. It is a bad faith presidency folks. There is nothing about it that will not get worse. It is predicated on a complex of revolting lies, including those right out of the box … Continue reading

It’s back: “The Great Global Warming Swindle”

It’s been well over a year since I’ve seen it. My link in the “essential videos” page (over in the RIGHT column) had not worked for that long. I couldn’t fix it because the video of the BBC program was … Continue reading

Did they get stimulus money?

Found this link to a new “diversity training” offensive at SUNY New Paltz courtesy of a group from SUNY Cortland. Translating “diversity training” from the original Gramscian: “We’re replacing your values with ours.” Or trying to, anyway. Love this line: … Continue reading
