AG Eric Holder attempts to explain a few of the circumstances under which your government might kill you:
“Given the nature of how terrorists act and where they tend to hide, it may not always be feasible to capture a United States citizen terrorist who presents an imminent threat of violent attack,” Mr. Holder [...]
It’s a bipartisan affair, according to Kristen Powers. Prosecution is rather spotty, however:
Did you know there is a war on women?
Yes, it’s true. Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, and Ed Schultz have been waging it for years with their misogynist outbursts. There have been boycotts by people on the [...]
Worth watching, if you haven’t already seen it.
So, you know: Breitbart was a happy warrior. Which made those he warred against unhappy. Thus the hate, which of course he earned. By being happy.

Late last year Congress, in a bi-partisan fashion, wrote into law the requirement that foreign born terrorists captured in the US be held in military custody as enemy combatants. Our president strongly objected to this provision, but signed the enclosing defense spending bill in to law with a “signing statement” recording his disagreement. Even [...]
Leon Panetta is a Democrat who served in the White House budget office. In Congress he chaired the House Budget Committee. And he led the intelligence and military operations that led to DevGru popping Osama bin Laden.
In short, he is the perfect man for these lean times:
“No budget can be balanced on [...]
Very much in the eye of the beholder, according to the admittedly partisan Hinderaker, who surveys the legacy media’s response to “Act of Valor“:
