This was demonstrably untrue at the time. Ezra either doesn’t know what he’s talking about, or is happy to lie to advance an agenda. And at this point, what difference does it make?"

Did You Miss Obama’s ‘Foreign Policy Reset’ Speech? Jonah Goldberg Sums it Up in One Perfect Tweet: Jonah Goldberg @JonahNRO
Some say we must put armadillos in our trousers to defeat tyranny. Others say that cats are poor spellers. I reject both points of view.

Moonbattery » Ted Cruz Sounds Alarm on Repeal of First Amendment: "The Second Amendment isn’t the only one liberals will repeal as soon as they have the leverage. They are already going after the First. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) sounds the alarm:
Once again we see that the Democrat Party has come to represent naked oligarchical collectivist tyranny of the type so many veterans gave their lives to defend the country against. Yet thanks to their control of the media and the witlessness of much of the public, millions of people will vote for Democrats anyway."Oh, and all you folks who don't think that Vets should be (un) treated by the VA the way they are, just remember that the VA is a perfect example of politically driven medical rationing. And whoever is on the outside looking in to the political powers that be get the political shaft.
It was praised by many Democrats and used as an example for Obamacare to emulate. And the Obama administration knew exactly what was going on.
Weep that our Veteran's have sacrificed in vain.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that we don't actually have a competitive health system -- just one that's not yet fully single payer and politically driven. Until Obamacare fully takes control.
Then we all get the shaft.

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: IowaHawk: “If I understand college administrators correctly, colleges are hotbeds of racism and rape that everyone should be able to attend.”Two continents, one common lunacy.

Young People and Conservatives: It’s a Two-Way Street | Power Line: "Plus, way too many young people are lazy and ignorant when it comes to current events. The Founders envisioned a democratic, self-governing society in which citizens would take an active and informed interest in events. Watch this video, filmed at George Mason University–almost certainly above average in this regard–and judge for yourself how well students are fulfilling the Founders’ vision:"

Andrew Klavan explains why Democrats call conservatives “racist”: "I always enjoy Andrew Klavan’s videos, but this may well be one of the best he’s ever done. With sly sarcasm and wit, he quickly and neatly exposes the rank hypocrisy and disdain for blacks that has animated the Democrat party for more than 150 years:"

Moonbattery » Gaslighting America Out of Existence: "The government–media axis strategy for getting us to submit passively to the fundamental transformation of America can be described as one word: gaslighting. Wikipedia defines it as “a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception and sanity.” Bill Whittle offers a few examples:"

Sultan Knish: The Progressive Red Guard: "mushroom said...
There are no absolutes except social justice.
Yep. That explains why victims are so vital to the left. They keep doing it because it works.
The media keeps it going, and America, in general, keeps thinking, "Well, it's on the news. There must be some truth to it." We reason that surely these journalists might be misled or mistaken or not very bright, but they wouldn't just lie outright.
Except they would, and they do because they are the Red Guard's agitprop. "Fact checking" was honest just long enough to be effectively corrupted, and crowd-source internet sites are being sanitized (i.e., Stalinized) or systematically trolled by regime agents to undermine the narrative of the opposition and bolster the regime's story.

Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott: Polo Lounge Nearly Deserted (Except for One Actor) - Hollywood Reporter:
Yeah, interesting. So interesting that Sultan Knish just wrote a post about it that starts thus:
Bridget • 2 hours ago
So interesting the elites are finally galvanized against Sharia law. I have to assume it was because of their gay policy (you're dead if you are gay) as oppose to their women policy (you are owned by your husband and he can kill you if he wants to). Interesting how that works.
At the end of Animal Farm, the revolution ended in tyranny when "All Animals are Equal" was rewritten with the addendum "But Some Animals are More Equal than Others." A revolution that began with the promise of equality reverted to inequality in the name of the equality revolution.Needless to say, you need to click right now and RTWT.
America's civil rights revolution began with, "All Americans are Equal" and ended up with, "All Americans are Equal... But Some Americans are More Equal than Others."

What Happens When A Palestinian Doesn’t Hate Israel Enough?: "A video was uploaded onto YouTube which featured a young Palestinian Christian woman describing what it was like to live under Israel military occupation. If that was all the video was about, it would have simply been added to the thousands of other YouTube videos which describe the same thing. What made Christy Anastas’ video unique was that she bravely revealed how Palestinian Christians have and are being treated by Palestinian Muslims and nationalists.
Breaking through the silence and fear faced by so many Palestinians, Christy described how her uncle, a Palestinian Christian from Bethlehem, had to pay the al-jizyah, protection money that is often levied against non-Muslims. After some time her uncle refused to pay the protection money because he noticed the militants would shoot and launch rockets near the Christian homes so that the retaliation would come on the Christians. Because of his refusal to pay up he was murdered in front of his house."
Wow. Just wow.
RTWT. WTWT. And then again.
