When I wrote my piece “What Right Wing Threat?” I might have anticipated some humorless criticism from an offended individual, outraged that I might diminish yesterday’s shooting at the Holocaust Museum by joking: “He was there to try to shoot the actual Holocaust…the Holocaust started it; this was simply self-defense.”
The response I got was not [...]
Right-wing threats in America? Hasn’t the media jumped the gun, or shark, so to speak?
James W. Von Brunn wasn’t shooting at Jews at the Holocaust Museum because he was anti-Semitic. He was there to try to shoot the actual Holocaust, under the mistaken impression he could stop it still and make up for [...]
For all of the analysis, parsing, and knee-jerking from Obama’s address to the Muslim world, there was one detail that seemed to bypass the pundits.
Obama acknowledged the U.S. role in the 1953 coup of Iran, when the CIA worked to overthrow a democratically-elected secular leader, Mohammad Mossadegh. This isn’t fringe conspiracy theory, this [...]

This video is a less subtle version of John Boehner’s video.
With all of the fanfare for President Obama’s popular first 100 days, he is that much more certain to have a bad day, and soon. Here is Obama’s worst day yet per Politico 44’s daily itinerary of “POTUS” (Secret Service-style code for President!):
In the end, torture broke them. They could no longer hold it all back. They now realize that their denial does not add up, and their tormentors become convinced of their guilt.
The Architects of Agony in the name of America are aware that their arrogant era has ended. They’ve been tortured enough by the questions [...]
While I would prefer to not dignify John Ziegler by writing any more about him, I would like to take the opportunity to respond to his grievances against me while addressing more pertinent issues.
I do not feel the need to rebut every sweeping accusation from him, because as I have already detailed, this individual projects [...]
