Fear The Walking Dead

A special tonic to fix the election mess we are in...

Hillary Clinton's emails may be deleted but not gone…

Allies humiliate Obama, rush to join Chinese Development Bank…

RIP Terri Schiavo

Camp of the Saints: 70 through 68 and CBS' Sunday Morning Segment

Barack Obama says he wants Democrats to be more like Ted Kennedy...

Barack Obama is so desperate for a deal with Iran that he will basically agree to anything to get one…


Richard Fernandez/Belmont Club: The Lost Highway
PJ Tatler: Netanyahu speaking to McConnell and Reid: Deal Dangerous to Humanity

Instapundit: Moe Lane (what is in store for 2016), What Peggy Noonan thinks (who cares), what Kevin Williamson thinks (now I am paying attention), no Democrat is inevitable in 2016, US Allies fear Obama Administration is leaking secretes to Iran, if Iran gets nukes, so will the Saudis, do Israel nukes frighten you…good, and if you think Barack Obama's decisions are bad now, wait till they play out next year.

Weekly Standard: A Nuclear Iran
Mark Steyn: Everyone is an ally, except Israel
Rush Limbaugh: Obama's Deal: Trust, but don't Verify
Hot Air: Another Iranian Bait and Switch
Instapundit: O'Malley: Nuclear Iran greatest "Man Made" Threat but he won't dare speak Hillary's name...
Washington Free Beacon: Iran wants more concessions from Obama as talks hit critical stage
Hot Air: Obama more concerned with a "win" against GOP than the safety of the nation

John Water's Pink Flamingos is tame compared to how things are today…




The truth today is far stranger and disturbing than the outrageous (for the time) fiction of Pink Flamingos (1972):

Sorry Devine, Not any more…

The Other McCain is reporting on the moral decline and collapse of Western Civilization:
Emerging Awareness Update
Middle school teacher has lesbian sex with 14 year old girl
Message for white males in the UK: "It is time for you to bow down."
Nuance for Scalia: It's the Commie take over of the liberal arts we hammer
The Social Justice Lynch Mob, You know you're a big deal, right? , What could possibly go wrong?
Teacher's texts expressed a "deep love" for an 11 year old, just murder, not a hate crime, the rape epidemic that isn't

But hey, gays have to go attack Indiana (AmPowBlog highlights the left's hypocritical boycott of Indiana and a law first signed by Bill Clinton) and florists in eastern Washington
Instapundit: Finally a false rape accusation prosecuted


TOM: Attempting to drive through barricades at NSA headquarters is a bad idea (even in drag), Public Education Has Corrupted The Morals of America's Youth, and Peak Hipster San Francisco
TOM: Lesbians earn 20% than Heterosexual Women
Instapundit: Teach Women Not To Rape and the Rolling Stone Rape Scam was a Hoax and Jackie is a Liar
TOM: Is Sexual Desire Dehumanizing? and Feminism requires a theory of the moral and intellectual inferiority of males…
TOM: Gender Insanity at $45,078 per year
Instapundit: After 50 years of feminism, women fantasize about dominate men and Teach Women Not To Rape (cont)

Who Really Beat Up Harry Reid?

Instpaundit: Obama's Culture of Corruption
Powerline: Did Harry Reid get in a fight with his rowdy brother (this is actually pretty plausible)

Remember those days when if you wanted "everyone to know your name" you found a neighborhood tavern to patronize?

Melissa Benoist Rule 5

Melissa Benoist has a small supporting role in Whiplash, but does a great job:










Rule 5 and FMJRA

Magna Carta: If Noam Chomsky is against it, you know how good it is…

We are counting down to the 800th Birthday of the bedrock of Anglo jurisprudence

Whiplash: A Movie Review




I loved American Sniper, but Whiplash is arguably a better movie (it is certainly close). And that is saying a lot (because both movies are great).  If you have not seen this movie, see it.

TOM: The rights you don't have…
Instapundit: Isn't this really a victory for feminism?

Frank Sinatra: Mama Will Bark with Bonus Dagmar Rule 5




Sinatra managed to work with most of the great songwriters of his time, but this is not one of them.  This is a terrible song, but Sinatra can manage to make it better (relatively).

[Maybe I am being too harsh on Bob Merrill, I like Mambo Italiano in a campy sort of way.  But then I listen to this song again and go, nah.  I get why Sinatra said what he said to Mitch Miller (years later).]

Mark Steyn: The worst song writer of all time
Gay Talese: Frank Sinatra Has A Cold

Mark Steyn: On the Road to Mandalay and A Foggy Day (in London Town)
Camp of the Saints: Sinatra's Best 73 through 71 and 70 through 68
Pundette: #78 Sinatra Unplugged Autumn Leaves and Embraceable You

Never let a Rule 5 opportunity to to waste so here is Dagmar:

Could it be Hillary Clinton is her own worst enemy?

Harry Reid will not run for reelection in 2016

Twitter: Happy Days!
Instapundit: Reid not running
Ed says good!
TOM: This guy is a Harry Reid kind of teacher!
Rush Limbaugh: No Mas!
Mark Steyn: Get along Little Harry

HRC Super Volunteers threaten attacks on anyone using "sexist" terms to describe Hillary Clinton. Update: Popehat claims it is satire…


Hillary Clinton's HRC Super Volunteers threaten to attack anyone who uses "sexist" terms to describe Hillary Clinton such as: “polarizing,” “calculating,” “disingenuous,” “insincere,” “ambitious,” “inevitable,” “entitled,” “over confident,” “secretive,” will do anything to win,” “represents the past,” and “out of touch.”


Someone page Dr. Jeff Goldstein, STAT!


Instapundit: Talk of Campus "Rape Culture" is more about unscientific hate speech, there is no rape lobby, and the female way of learning destroying boyhood


BobBelvedere/Camp of the Saints: Fellow Bitter Twitterers...
RRG: DWS: Hillary followed the rules because...shut up!

Talking about desert science fiction film locations:
Instapundit (you will seldom see a more wretched hive of scum and villainy):

Instapundit: Obama sells out Israel to Iran
TOM: Just Murder Not a Hate Crime

FAKE? Just remember the greatest trick the devil ever played was getting people to think he wasn't real. Althouse and Reason seem to believe…
TOM: Social Justice Lynch Mob
Instapundit: Mob Justice and the Obama Administration


Germanwings Crash Deliberate Act By Co-Pilot? Why did he do it?

Frontiers of Feminism: Big Thighs Rule 5

Instapundit: Frontiers of Feminism (The struggles of women with big thighs)

These women are considered to have"Thunder Thighs"?  

I am not getting it, then again maybe it is all relative or the term "thunder thighs" means something different in India.
