Crazed Ex-Cop Kills 3 People After Quoting Mia Farrow in Bizarre Manifesto

ABC News reports: The rage-filled “manifesto” written by former police officer Christopher Dorner before he went on an alleged cop killing spree around the Los Angeles area was dismissed by the head of the Los Angeles Police Department today as “self-serving” and “ramblings on the Internet.” Dorner is believed to have killed one police officer […]

AR-15 Saleswoman of the Year?

Patterico nominates Sen. Dianne Feinstein for an NRA Lifetime Achievement Award: Perhaps no single American in the country’s history has done more to put high-powered rifles and high capacity magazines in the hands of United States citizens. The irony — it burns!

Why the Creepy Little Weirdo Did It

We now have the first clear suggestion of a motive: NEWTOWN, Conn. –  The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped  because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility . . . [The creepy little weirdo], targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown […]

House Minority Leader Who Voted Against BHO’s Budget Decries Congressional GOP Obstruction

by Smitty The Wicked Witch of the West is one sick piece of work. Breitbart video below the fold for autoplay reason. She totally misrepsents any conservative view of the social contract. “Oh, Mitt Romney’s not going to be president of the United States , I think everybody knows that, right?” Get bent, Nancy! John […]

California Liberals to Latino Small Business Owners: ‘No Way, José!’

Liberals love Latinos, right? Except in California. Except when the Latinos in question are small business owners who sell tacos from food trucks. Steven Greenhut explains at Reason magazine: Desperate for cash, state officials now make unrealistic estimates of their sales and employ heavy-handed tactics, they explain. To make matters worse, the truck owners say that […]

Occupy Mob Riots in L.A.

A crowd of Occupy protesters disrupted an “Art Walk” event Thursday night in downtown Los Angeles, throwing rocks and bottles at police.

For ‘Debased’ Values Of ‘Self-Respecting’

by Smitty The rampant idiocy on display for even a short clip like this is astounding. “. . .Mitt Romney doesn’t even know if he’d sign a bill promising us equal pay for equal work. . .” Rarely does a bill focus on a single topic. To say you’d sign any bill, unread, is both […]

Calling A Policy ‘Smart’ Does Not Impart Intelligence

by Smitty Are California’s marijuana dispensaries putting out some great product, or what? Smart growth on steroids, or the radical densification policy of California, was the subject of my recent commentary in The Wall Street Journal — “California Declares War on Suburbia”. Regional transportation plans in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Los Angeles area […]

The Riot Ideology

Yesterday, I mentioned Fred Siegel’s The Future Once Happened Here in connection with the Trayvon Martin case. Siegel’s book is one of those timeless classics — like Christopher Lasch’s The Culture of Narcissism and Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed — that I frequently recommend as guides to understanding important social phenomena more deeply. […]

‘Due to Her Excellent Reputation Among California Democrats …’

This was what you might call “a clue”: Kinde Durkee, once a trusted treasurer to dozens of California Democrats, pleaded guilty in the biggest campaign embezzlement case ever to hit U.S. politics. In a federal court in Sacramento, Durkee admitted to stealing more than $7 million from roughly 50 clients during an 11-year period from […]

Middle School Teacher Named ‘Stacie’ Caught in Perhaps Predictable Scandal

Let’s face it: If you ever hire somebody with a name like that, you can generally expect trouble to result: Stacie Halas, a 31-year-old science teacher at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, was removed from the classroom Monday, three days after pupils reported spotting her in a series of X-rated clips. “Maybe it’s […]

I Guess Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer Is A Democrat?

by Smitty When you’ve been this craven and this biased for this long, the default assumption is that any public figure experiencing ‘life difficulties’ must be a Democrat. Bill Lockyer is listed as a Democrat on Wikipedia. I guess the picture caption on SF Gate mentions them at a DP fundraiser. Then again, this is […]
