Will Somali Pirates Hijack the Election?

Former Naval fighter pilot Will Royster asks a good question, “If we won’t allow Somali pirates to hijack our ships, why do we allow them to hijack our elections?” Royster has experienced this paradox up close. It was his election that was hijacked, specifically the August 3 Democratic primary for the 40 th district Missouri State House seat. With no Republican in the race, the winner of the Democratic primary … [Read more...]

Why an Assassination Attempt Goes Unreported – Casey Brezik

On Tuesday of this week, 22 year-old Casey Brezik waited in the computer lab of Penn Valley Community College in Kansa City where Missouri governor, Jay Nixon, was scheduled to speak. At some point, as various dignitaries gathered outside the lab, an anxious Brezik, wearing black clothes and a bullet-proof vest, bolted out of the lab, knife in hand. Brezik approached Associate Vice Chancellor Tom Vansaghi, a … [Read more...]

What D’Souza Doesn’t Get Quite Right

Dinesh D’Souza has long been one of America’s shrewdest and bravest political observers. His much discussed Forbes article, “How Obama Thinks,” a prelude to his forthcoming book, The Roots of Obama's Rage, burnishes that reputation. Indeed, Newt Gingrich describes D’Souza’s thesis as the “most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama.” In the article, D’Souza argues that President … [Read more...]

What the NY Jets Can Do that the FDNY Cannot

The simple answer is this: field its best team. The reasons why the New York Fire Department cannot do so are complex, but when understood, indefensible — especially after September 11. Two good windows on this paradox are the HBO show "Hard Knocks," this year featuring the Jets, and "102 minutes," a fair-minded book by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn on the fight to survive within the Twin Towers. "Hard … [Read more...]

‘Mistress Of Disaster’ Mired in BP Mess – Jamie Gorelick

It did not surprise me to learn—and hats off to blogger Johnny Cirucci for the tip—that former Clinton Deputy Attorney General, Jamie Gorelick (at left), the well-labeled “Mistress of Disaster,” has been enlisted by BP to represent the company before Congress on the subject of the Gulf disaster. In reporting the move for Politico, an allegedly non-partisan journal, Abby Phillip ingenuously notes that Gorelick, now … [Read more...]

Was Obama’s Hendrix Reference Freudian?

The headline story on my Yahoo News reads, "Obama channels Hendrix on critics: ‘They talk about me like a dog.'" "Though Obama didn't acknowledge it," reads the article by Holly Bailey,  "the line was a verbatim quote from "Stone Free," the first song Hendrix wrote after moving to England in 1966." Holly dear, if Obama has not acknowledged help with his 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father, he is not about … [Read more...]

Human Rights through the Looking Glass

The UPR stands for Universal Periodic Review, a human rights reporting process established by The U.N. General Assembly in 2006. As shall be seen, "Orwellian" does not do the UPR justice. "Bizarro World" comes closer to the mark. As the UPR is designed, the U.N.'s 192 Member States assess their respective human rights performance over the preceding four years and submit a report on the same to the HRC, the … [Read more...]

The Two Faces of Our Commander-In-Chief

In a February 2009 speech, newly inaugurated President Barack Obama promised the faithful that come August 31, 2010 he would end combat operations for U.S Troops in Iraq, just in time for the mid-term elections. In the interest of accuracy, Obama did not exactly say “just in time for the mid-term elections.” I added that. He just thought it. And sure enough, when August 31, 2010, rolled around, Obama proudly … [Read more...]

Obama’s ‘Christianity’ a Con

The italics in the title above are hard-earned. President Barack Obama embraced Christianity for two reasons, and neither had anything to do with the person after whom Obama’s newfound faith was named. These are the same two calculated reasons Obama married Michelle. The move strengthened his desperately shaky identity as an African-American, and it solidified his political base in black Chicago. In his 1995 … [Read more...]

Understanding Obama’s Muslim Roots

To understand why President Barack Obama endorsed the Ground Zero Mosque—before he didn’t endorse it—a look at his various parents and their ideological roots might be in order. Much has been made about the Kenyan Obamas and their Muslim heritage, but it has become increasingly clear that Barack Sr. probably never even saw little Barry until he visited the boy and his family in Hawaii ten years after the boy’s … [Read more...]

Ground Zero Imam Eyes Another Landmark

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, chairman of the soi-disant Cordoba Initiative, has gotten all the attention he deserves for his astonishingly insensitive attempt to build a thirteen-story mosque and community center at the site of Ground Zero. Rauf has largely escaped attention for his efforts to build a sawed-off version of the same on the grounds of the venerable and historically Christian Chautauqua Institution in … [Read more...]

If Timothy McVeigh had been a Christian

In fact, Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh, was a self-proclaimed atheist, whose mantra was "Science is my religion." That, of course, did not stop the media and the self-appointed liberal "watchdogs" from blaming the bombing of the Murrah Building on the Christian right. Chief among the watchdogs in the Midwest, perhaps nationwide, is one Leonard Zeskind, an unrepentant Marxist-Leninist and author of the … [Read more...]

Real Sherrod Story Still Untold

Had Andrew Breitbart dutifully written a column detailing how an obscure USDA official, Shirley Sherrod, and her husband, Charles Sherrod, had scammed the government out of millions, the story would have had the range and lifespan of a fruit fly. Instead, as the world knows, Breitbart released an edited version of Shirley Sherrod's speech before the NAACP that provoked national headlines and caused the NAACP to … [Read more...]

HBO TKOs Muhammad Ali

First published in WorldNetDaily.com Although it debuted last year, I just this week happened to catch the HBO documentary “Thriller in Manila.” As fate would have it, I was staying in the town in which the documentary’s antagonist, Muhammad Ali, was born and raised—Louisville, Kentucky. You read that right, “antagonist.” Stunningly, John Dower’s documentary shows the Ali of his glory years for the cruel, … [Read more...]

NAACP, Media Owe Tea Parties Major Apology

Blacks will know they have achieved full acceptance in America when the media begin to treat the NAACP as the hack left wing political group it has obviously become. Now, alas, my hometown Kansas City Star treats the NAACP meeting here in KC as though it were the 2,000th annual reunion of Jesus and the twelve Apostles. Wednesday’s headline reads, “NAACP resolution addresses tea parties.” It should have read, … [Read more...]

The Last Great Cover-up

TWA Flight 800 and Its Consequences in Cashill.com on July 8, 2010 If  TWA Flight 800 had exploded off the coast of Long Island in July 2001 as visibly as it had in July 1996, the world would have been told a different story, even if there had been a Democrat in the White House. On the night of July 17, 1996, and into the early morning hours of the 18th, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Deputy National Security … [Read more...]
