The F-35 May Need To Be Permanently Grounded

The F-35 May Need To Be Permanently Grounded

The DoD Acquisition Community has spoken on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. According to a recent NRO article they have concluded the following: “The F-35 program is a mess; it ...

Maybe we could’ve done this a bit better?

Let’s say I were a liberal Republican Senate Majority Leader. I have two major concerns before me: Nothing I really want can get done with conservatives on one side of me and Democrats to the other. There are three issues to take care of. The first has to do with highway funds and the special money that gets set aside in pet projects for all | Read More »

Close to Home

Last week, a man with a history of mental health issues opened fire in a theater in Lafayette, Louisiana. Two women were killed, several more were injured, and he took his own life when he saw there was no way out. It appears as though he had planned to escape, using a car he left near the scene, and it is likely more attacks may | Read More »

Chris Christie and Donald Trump Will Be At the RedState Gathering

Chris Christie is going to be at the RedState Gathering now. He will be the first of the Presidential speakers at the Gathering, only preceded by Governor Nathan Deal who will welcome attendees to Georgia. I’m very honored Governor Christie will be there. He was a late entrant into Campaign 2016 and we’ve worked with his campaign to make the schedule work. Also, on Saturday | Read More »

Politifact vs. Facts (and Rick Perry)

Over the last few years, a number of (allegedly) non-partisan fact checking organizations have come out that purport to provide a neutral analysis of the claims of politicians. I’m at a loss as to what function these organizations are even supposed to provide – at least over and above what you could find for yourself through competent use of Google. In reality, of course, they | Read More »

Oh, BTW: the Democratic front-runner is quite cordially hated in swing states.

So, you think that we have problems? New polls show Hillary Clinton underwater in Iowa, New Hampshire, Colorado and Virginia — Aaron Blake (@AaronBlakeWP) July 27, 2015 Goodness gracious, but that’s the Democratic Nightmare Scenario right there, huh? Hillary Clinton is still on track to get the nomination in early states… but the populace in general simply Does Not Like Her.  The Washington | Read More »

Chris Farley Government: Remember When It Was Congress That Made Law? That Was Awesome

Remember that recurring Saturday Night Live skit where the late Chris Farley was the ultimate fanboy – interviewing those for whom he was the ultimate fanboy? Sniveling and sweaty, he would bring up some of his favorite memories of his interviewees – pretending they were questions by prefacing them with “Remember…?” And when the interviewee said he did in fact remember, Farley would blurt out | Read More »

Ron DeSantis For Senate

In February of 2009, I declared the Florida Senate race between Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 91% and Charlie Crist a “hill to die on.” Rubio was at three percent in the polls. Charlie Crist was the sitting Republican Governor of Florida. And the entire weight of the Republican Party was behind Crist. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) 53% and the | Read More »

Where’s The Outrage? cc: @JebBush, @GovernorPerry, @MarcoRubio, @ScottWalker, @CarlyFiorina

UPDATE: I have removed Governor Jindal’s twitter handle from the title. His staff reached out to me to say he is not engaging in politics right now. In the wake of the Lafayette shooting, he has gone off the campaign trail to focus on the situation in Louisiana. Today he is attending the funerals of the victims. —— It is stuff like this that has | Read More »
