OBAMA’S DHS: DRONES, HOLLOW POINTS, AND SECRECY
2 Apr 2013 2:48 pm Josh Bernstein
What has our Department of Homeland Security metamorphosed into? Our third largest government agency has been stockpiling weapons and ammunition at a very alarming rate. Since early 2012, DHS and its 200,000 employees have purchased so much ammunition that many of the top weapon and bullet manufacturers have had trouble keeping up with the increased demand.
So why is our government buying hundreds of thousands of tactical weapons and millions upon millions of bullets? Do they think that the Russians are going to invade us? Do they think the North Koreans …
Off to CPAC
13 Mar 2013 12:01 am John Hawkins
My posting will be intermittent from today until Thursday of next week because I’ll be at CPAC and then afterwards, I have a business deal that will require some of my time. There will still be posts from me in the interim, just not as many as normal. Hope to see you at CPAC and if not, enjoy the many other bloggers, columnists and links that you’ll find on Right Wing News until I return.

I was coming down with something yesterday and it hit me full force today. I’m going to hit the bed all day, drink some OJ, recuperate and hopefully I should be back to normal tomorrow. In the interim, enjoy the other columnists, bloggers and links!
Football Sunday And Open Thread!
2 Dec 2012 11:00 am William Teach
Been quite awhile since we had either a football post or open thread. Here is your chance to talk football or whateverthehell you want.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills – 1 p.m. – which teams show up?
Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears – 1 p.m. – this could be a good one
Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions – 1 p.m. – another possible good game
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers – 1 p.m. – Vikes best be on guard for the Packers to go on a tear after last week’s beatdown
Carolina Panthers …
A Message About The Comments Section And A Call For Moderators
16 Nov 2012 5:43 am John Hawkins
At one time, Right Wing News used to have one of the best comment sections on the right side of the blogosphere. However, when the amount of the content on the page dramatically ramped up, the number of comments per thread couldn’t keep up. It took time, but eventually we started to build the numbers back up.
However, over the last few months we’ve started to develop a different problem, one that certain bars have an issue with. We have a number of regular commenters who show up every day …

Unfortunately, I’m under the weather and won’t be updating today. However, I anticipate being back at full steam tomorrow. In the interim, enjoy the other 30 or so columns, blog posts and links that’ll be up today.
Right Wing News Tech Issue
9 Oct 2012 5:46 am John Hawkins
I changed web hosting companies for Right Wing News on Sunday and since then, we’ve had a strange issue with DNS propagation. Long story short, for an unusually long time after the website was moved over, an inordinate number of people were still seeing the old version of RWN, on the old host, instead of the new version. Theoretically, it can take 24-72 hours for a website to show up in a new location once the DNS has been re-pointed, but typically it shouldn’t take nearly that long. I …
Out Today. Back Tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I’m going to be out of commission today. So, enjoy the other columns, posts, and links and I’ll be back tomorrow.
Off Today! Back Tomorrow! Have A Great Labor Day!
3 Sep 2012 2:34 am John Hawkins
I’m off today for Labor Day although, of course, other columnists and bloggers at RWN will be posting and there are plenty of links. I’ll be back tomorrow and while I’m gone, hope you have a great Labor Day!
12 Jul 2012 11:32 pm John Hawkins
The new host Right Wing News moved to is having horrible server problems which, for reasons I don’t understand, they seem unable to correct. Since that’s the case, unfortunately, the only option is going to be to move Right Wing News to a new host. I’m in the process of having that done, but it’s expensive, difficult, and time consuming. If all goes expected, the web page will be moved over by the end of next week-end. I wish it could be done faster, but that probably won’t be possible. …
Technical Problems At Right Wing News
10 Jul 2012 12:01 am John Hawkins
Right Wing News has changed servers and made some changes that were supposed to INCREASE the speed of the page. That was in theory.
In practice, Disqus isn’t showing the number of comments, the page is running slow right now, the users online count isn’t displaying, some of the old articles aren’t displaying — it’s a mess. I’m working on getting all of this fixed, but it’s complicated and slow going.
My apologies for the issues. I’m working on getting them fixed ASAP.
On Vacation This Week
2 Jul 2012 12:01 am John Hawkins
I’ll be off this week on vacation although my columns will still run. While I’m gone, have a great July 4th and enjoy the other columnists and bloggers. I’ll see you next Monday!
Return On Wed
21 May 2012 1:44 am John Hawkins
Apologies, because I can’t really get into the details online just yet, but I’m not going to be able to do any personal updates until Wed. Of course, the show will go on without me and I’ll be back at the same bat time, same bat channel in a couple of days. See you then!
Right Wing News Changing Servers Today
19 May 2012 12:01 am John Hawkins
Tonight, Right Wing News will be changing servers. Hopefully, most people won’t even notice the difference until they see that the page loads considerably faster on Monday. However, I have yet to ever have a server change that went smoothly. Come to think of it, every single move has ended up being a rambling train wreck that made me want to pull my hair out for at least 72 hours or so. Still, being an eternal optimist, I’m hoping this one will be different…ha, ha, ha. In any case, if …

Folks, I’m under the weather today, so I won’t be able to post. Tomorrow, however, I will be back with a new column and an Arthur Brooks interview. Make sure to tune in because it’s going to be fantastic!
Off This Week
26 Dec 2011 12:01 am John Hawkins
Hope you had a fantastic Christmas and wish you a wonderful New Year. I’m going to be off this week and I’ll be returning on January 2. Until then, of course, the show must go on. Enjoy the columns, blog posts, and everything else. See you in the New Year!
Unscrupulous? Investors Hub Leaves Libelous Cowardly Anonymous Comment Up About My Friend Steve Nickolas
13 Dec 2011 1:16 pm Rachel Alexander
One of the problems with the wild west nature of the internet is some website owners do not handle content on their sites responsibly. Once they have built up their website traffic to popular levels, many develop an attitude that they can do what they want, regardless of how hurtful it is to others.
Investors Hub is one such site. The administrators of that website do not adequately police comments left on that website. Anyone can sign up for an anonymous account on the website and leave untrue comments about other …
Friday Open Thread And Diary Rescue….Squirrel!
7 Oct 2011 9:57 am William Teach
You asked for it, you got it: Friday open thread! No diary rescue, because, of course, conservatives don’t do diaries, like the Nancy’s on the left do. We do posts. Anyhow, squirrel!
Anyhow, someone doesn’t understand that ninja’s don’t “storm in”.
Oral sex may be a leading cause of throat and mouth cancer.
An Aussie court rules that a penis is not a prerequisite to being a man.

The Nanny state makes it impossible to raise children — and then takes them away
4 Sep 2011 2:26 pm Bookworm
Sometimes the matched sets just write themselves. Both of the articles I’m quoting here are from England. The first in our set is an article saying that town councils across England are being told that they need to reinstate actual playgrounds. The current versions, which are the kid equivalent of a padded room, are creating useless human beings:
Old-fashioned playground equipment like climbing frames, sand pits and paddling pools are set to be re-introduced after research found a degree of risk helps children to develop.
For years councils have …
