In what is believed to be the only video of its kind, Capt. Will Swenson can be seen on camera carrying out the acts that earned him his Medal of Honor.
As a part of his continued efforts to ensure that he’s in the limelight as often as possible, 2016 presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took it upon himself to deliver an unprecedented response/rebuttal to President Obama’s address to the American people tonight. Paul questioned whether or not the U.S. can actually do any good […]
The New York Times, the most respected newspaper in the world, evidently remains unpersuaded of the illegality of American drone strikes, and continues to take a bizarre, tortured approach to discussing the matter in its news articles. That launching drone strikes in a foreign country whose government does not consent to said strikes is a […]
NBC News?published?a bizarre and apparently-not-satirical piece on its website today about Paul Bremer, imperial ruler of Iraq for a year after the U.S. invasion. Bremer, who the authors gush is a “youthful 72,” has taken up painting, and obviously this is newsworthy.
Sometimes, as an observer of the news, one comes across a particular opinion column that is so brazen, so audacious, that one must stare at the headline for thirty seconds or so, simply to make sure it’s not a hallucination. Such was my experience this morning when I saw that Fred Hiatt wrote a?column?for?The Washington […]
Charles Krauthammer likes war. Any war, really, but the War on Terror in particular. It’s kind of his?raison d’?tre; no one cares what he has to say about domestic policy, so if this glorious clash between the Last, Best Hope on Earth and The Islamofascistterroristevildoers were to end, he might just sink into relative irrelevance.

Walsh tells us that the disengagement will “diminish” the “prestige” and “political importance” Pakistan […]
Nobody likes being lied to, especially when tens of thousands of lives and trillions of tax dollars hang in the balance.
The conservative resource for political and world events, Fox News, has continuously had its authenticity and reliability questioned. Their viewers are not only less informed than other news viewers but also less informed than those who don’t watch TV news at all. These studies and a self-described bias must draw in questions of the authenticity […]
“This is a love story, because this is an emotional story and a true story.” (Metro) A friend shared this video on my Facebook Timeline last year, and I’m sharing it here because it is relevant to news, and yes…politics.
