No Apologies

If there’s any uncertainty about why we do not owe Japan an apology for Hiroshima, Bill Whittle breaks it down brilliantly here.

This video was the gateway drug that got me hooked on both Whittle and PJTV back in 2009. If you’ve never seen it, it’s well worth the watch. Back then, Whittle taking […]

Many of us knew this Administration is not only led by, but populated with empty suits. Still, it’s bracing (read terrifying) to be confronted with proof of it. From The New York Times “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign Policy Guru”:

Like Obama, Rhodes is a storyteller who uses a writer’s tools […]

Stop! Hold on … stay in control.

Sure, it may seem difficult to envision Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams, two of the 80s biggest working class hero songwriters, worthy of the task of looking out for the best interests of 21st century boys wishing they were girls (or vice versa), but damned if their respective boycotts of North Carolina and Mississippi over […]

Past, Imperfect

I know I’ve shared the story of Arthur Jacobs’ tale being made into a film via crowdfunding in a couple Open Threads, but now that it’s the subject of a Taki’s Page column, a little more depth to Mr. Jacobs’ experiences. Also, in light of recent campaign trail comments on the deportations of US […]

Monday Open Thread

I was going to put up a transcript of last night’s soaring Presidential speech but instead decided to put this 1,000 word summary of President Obama’s views on the recent episode of workplace violence in San Bernardino, California.

Unfriendly Fire

Please don’t also forget a slightly modified t-shirt version of the above is available from our friends at Gruntworks. t’is the season(s).

Missing Christians

Whatever your views of the brouhaha over Syrian refugees (and many of them are refugees — which colors the debate over, but does not resolve the issues involved with whether or not to take them in) there is no doubt that the group is mostly Muslim even though Syria’s total population was 10% Christian […]

Just because
