SomaliFlag

As many of you know, I’m in the very shallow end of the wealth pool. That’s not a call for sympathy. Many Americans are going through hard times. I’ve had more money before and I will again. I only mention it because some of my friends from Twitter know I lived in an apartment building … Continue reading

Red Eye: Security Breach Around

Red Eye: Get Juan Williams!

From Saint to Sinner - Juan Williams

Poor Juan Williams. It isn’t enough National Public Radio dumped him for having the poor taste to be honest about his feelings. No, now the Left must vilify him, as if he was a disavowed CIA operative, cut loose in Eastern Europe sometime in the early 80’s.

Red Eye: Achmed bin (&) Jehris?

Damn fascists! What's wrong with us? Are we monsters? WELL, ARE WE?

Recent events in my life have caused me to take a break from the serious news. I’ve been trying to get back into the groove, but my need for silliness and laughter has trumped any pretense I once had toward blogging integrity, researching and tackling serious issues. I planned a return to more serious posting … Continue reading

Islamodefiant on The Ed Morrissey Show


I’m still a newbie to the conservative scene. Consequently, I’m in the process of learning who the major players are, not to mention the behind the scenes folks who influence things.

Hey, Barack: Absorb THIS!

Let see if the Democratic party can "absorb" November.

We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it … Continue reading

First, it was all about bridge building. The Cordoba House community center and totally not a mosque was all about reaching out to the West to build ties between the Muslim community and larger America. “We’re totes against terrorists and stuff,” said Imam Rauf. “We’re even going to build a museum to the 9/11 attacks … Continue reading
