February 28, 2016 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Conservative and center-right columnists often have to do far more digging than their liberal counterparts, simply because overwhelmingly left-leaning beat journalists, aka “Democrats with bylines,” provide such unbalanced reporting on current events on a daily basis. Fortunately, the Washington Post’s Marc Thiessen did the entirely necessary work of rummaging through available information about […]

Joe ‘Gaffe-omatic’ Biden Strikes Again, Calls Africa A ‘Nation’; AP, NYT Ignore

August 6, 2014 by


By Tom Blumer ~ They had to invent Sarah Palin’s supposedly most embarrassing gaffe when she was the vice-presidential nominiee in 2008.

A Most Obnoxious Biden

October 13, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The Biden-Ryan debate will be the subject of millions of words written and spoken, but, if remembered at all will likely be remembered for Vice President Biden’s obnoxious behavior.

September 5, 2012 by

The ‘Chains’ of Progressive Politics

August 19, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ The uproar over the “chains” comment made by Vice President Joe Biden continues, and rightly so.

BFD: A Biden Fabulist Dud

July 28, 2012 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ Vice President Joe Biden, America’s textbook Beltway barnacle, still labors under the illusion that he is America’s middle-class Everyman. And now, he’s gone and dragged his adult children into the land of Democratic make-believe. This is a BFD: a Biden Fabulist Dud. As usual with White House class-warfare demagoguery, reality doesn’t […]

Egypt Drifts Away from Democracy

June 17, 2012 by


By James Phillips ~ Egypt has been plunged into confusion by the judicial coup mounted against the recently elected parliament, which was dissolved by a ruling of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court.

The Myth of “Middle-Class” Uncle Joe

March 16, 2012 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ This has got to be the bazooka of all Joe Biden blowhardisms.

Liberal Columnist Kirsten Powers Slams Biden ‘One-Child’ Remark

August 26, 2011 by


By Ken Shepherd Joe Biden’s recent remark in which he said he “fully understand[s]” China’s reasons for their 32-year-old one-child policy is an absolutely “appalling statement coming from an American leader.” “What’s next? Will he say he isn’t ‘second-guessing’ and ‘fully understands’ that women are stoned for adultery in Iran?” Who said that? Michele Bachmann? […]

Who’s Policing Amtrak Joe Biden’s Rail Boondoggles?

February 10, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin At Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station on Tuesday, lifelong government rail promoter Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a $53 billion high-speed train initiative and half-joked: “I’m like the ombudsman for Amtrak.” As with most gaffetastic Biden-isms, the remark should prompt more heartburn than hilarity.

Joe Biden Is No Laughing Matter

October 12, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba “The first two vice presidents were elected president outright, and twelve more veeps would end up, by hook or by crook, in the White House, running things.

How Privileged Liberals Pay For Their Houses

September 26, 2010 by
