U.S. Army: New plan… how about some robots with guns?

Almost a year ago I wrote about some disturbing news out of Russia where they had developed autonomous robots capable of firing weapons. They’re not anywhere near actual Robocop levels of performance ye...

Vlad & him

(Scott Johnson) Yesterday in “Facebook footnotes” I posted the Facebook ad promoting the protest produced by the friends of Vladimir Putin against President Trump outside Trump Tower in the immediate aftermath of the election. The creative efforts of the Russians toiling away in the troll factory did not go for naught. They attracted Michael Moore to the event. The Daily Caller ...

Is Trump the Worst President Ever?

(John Hinderaker) That is the conclusion of this survey of political “scientists” which is getting a lot of play in today’s news. This ranking is done periodically by members of the American Political Science Association, and this year’s poll compares today’s ratings with those compiled in 2014. They show the traditionally great presidents at the top, led by Lincoln and Washi...

Dem Senator to Mueller: Don’t release findings around the midterms

Oh, why not? Wouldn’t that be hilariously ironic, no matter how Robert Mueller’s report turns out for Republicans and Democrats? Presumably, the special counsel has learned that lesson from his good friend James Comey, but beleaguered incumbent Democrat Robert Casey Jr ...

Rush to Trump: Don’t validate Mueller’s investigation by celebrating the lack of collusion in Friday’s indictment

I warned about this myself on Saturday when news trickled out that POTUS was “elated” that Mueller’s latest indictment said his associates contacted Russia...

Family who took in Nikolas Cruz believed they had only key to gun safe

As you’ve probably heard by now, Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz had moved in with the family of one of his friends after his adoptive mother died last November. That family, the Sneads, allowed Cruz to bring his guns but required him to buy a safe for them. They say they believed they had the only key to...

Jill Stein: Hey, the Democrats meddled in the election too, you know

Jill Stein is still somehow making presidential election news these days, not so much for having run, but because all of the Russian “meddling” stories include footnotes saying the aforementioned meddlers were trying to drive votes her way as well. She’s not having any of that, in additio...

Poll: Blackburn beating Corker 2:1 in Tennessee primary

Don’t expect Marsha Blackburn to back out of the primary fight for Bob Corker’s Senate seat, even if Corker decides to unretire. A new poll from a PAC backing Blackburn shows her clobbering Corker among Republican primary voters, ...

Trump: Oprah’s “60 Minutes” roundtable was terrible and I hope she runs so I can defeat her

Oprah is many things but “very insecure” ain’t one of them. Just watched a very insecure Oprah Winfrey, who at one point I knew very well, interview a panel of people on 60 Minutes. The questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. Hope Oprah run...

Jennifer Lawrence is taking a year off acting to ‘fix’ America

Well, it seemed as if America was in trouble there for a while, but now our problems are about to be solved. Jennifer Lawrence, currently doing a promotional tour for a movie in which she plays a Russian spy, has announced she’s taking a onr-year hiatus from acting in order to work on fixing...

This day in erasing history

(Scott Johnson) I grew up in a time when Washington’s birthday was not only observed on February 22, but was celebrated with the Fannie Farmer chocolate axe honoring the mythical story told about Washington by Parson Weems. In 1968 Washington’s Birthday was moved to the third Monday in February by virtue of the Uniform Holidays Bill. It has subsequently become known as the nondescript Presidents’ Day by which we know it today. How can you move a guy’s birth...

Alex Acosta refuses to disturb Obama/Perez pro-illegal immigrant policies

(Paul Mirengoff) As described below, Department of Labor policy and practice supports illegal immigrants in at least three ways. This shouldn’t be surprising. Illegal immigrants had no better friend in the Obama administration, and few anywhere in American, than Tom Perez, Obama’s Secretary of Labor. Here is how Perez used the DOL to promote the interests of illegal immigrants. First, an Obama administration-era memorandum of understanding between the DOL, the EE...

Poll Wars: Return of the paper ballots

The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! That’s the fear surrounding the 2018 elections in some quarters, anyway. Despite repeated assurances that foreign agents were unable to hack into our electoral machinery and change any of the vote totals, concerns remain that they are ...

2020’s a serious possibility, says …

Come on, admit it — you thought this came from Hillary Clinton. Well, perhaps it still might, but no. This comes from the other two-time presidential loser in the Democratic pantheon, former Vice President Joe Biden. Until now, most of the talk about Biden has been from others s...
