Announcing the 2015 Bulwer-Lytton Prize winner for worst “make-believe” legislation: Bob Corker
In the event you are not familiar with with the Bulwer-Lytton prize for rotten fiction; it is named for the Englishman, Edward George Bulwar-Lytton, who in his 1830 novel “Paul Clifford,” penned this thoroughly wretched sentence: “It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept | Read More »
It is now 5 weeks since Hillary lied and said she had not received a subpoena; yet she has not been asked ONCE to explain her lie
On July 8th, Hillary Clinton, attempting to defuse reports about her burgeoning email scandal, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “….I’ve never had a subpoena…” This was a blatant, flat-out, bald-faced lie. And she knew it. The next day, produced a copy of the subpoena that the Select Committee on Benghazi had issued to her in March. Since that time, Clinton has done a few carefully staged | Read More »
Proof positive that GHW Bush must have dropped Jeb on his head as a child, or something like that
George H. W. Bush was elected president in 1988 to fulfill the hope and the expectations of a third Reagan term. During that campaign, it appeared that he had learned well the lessons of the Reagan administration. The same guy who, when he first ran for the WH in 1980, termed Reagan’s supply-side influenced plans as “voodoo” economics, delivered a superb acceptance speech at the | Read More »
Could Hillary be kaput after New Hampshire..would her campaign survive losses in Iowa and NH?
Well, we conservatives and Republicans have been kept pretty busy for the last few weeks attempting to discern where the GOP is headed, and banging our heads against the wall, and each other, about Trump , so I thought I’d turn for a second to the Democrats. The Bernie Sanders phenomena hasn’t got that much attention yet, but it soon will. He’s the far-left equivalent | Read More »
Thanks, Preibus..this is ALL YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT ( and just imagine the circus at the CNN debate if Trump is on stage)
When Trump first announced he was a candidate, I posted several diaries on Red State, calling Trump a “narcissistic megalomaniac,” and denouncing RNC Chairman Reince Preibus for not disqualifying Trump from the debate for failing to pledge to support the party’s ultimate nominee. (Actually, I called Preibus a “dumbass,” for which I was castigated by several of the Mods.) Well, who’s smiling now..or rather, who’s | Read More »
Welcome to the “ignorant and/or untruthful club,” Chuckie ( and maybe the Senate Dem leader slot isn’t a lock after all?
Yesterday, Chuckie Schumer used the cover of the massive MSM focus on the first GOP presidential debate, to quietly announce that he will oppose Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. If not for the debate, this would have been the top story for several news cycles; instead, it’s now barely a blip on the screen. Schumer, widely perceived to be the heir apparent to Dem leader | Read More »
BEFORE we defeat McConnell: Resolved – That the National Republican Senatorial Committee should NOT make any financial contributions to Kirk’s campaign.
From the NRSC homepage: (my emphasis in bold) “The NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) is the only national organization solely devoted to strengthening the Republican Senate Majority and electing Republicans to the United States Senate.” “We provide invaluable support and assistance to current and prospective Republican U.S. Senate candidates in the areas of budget planning, election law compliance, fundraising, communications tools and messaging, research and | Read More »
A suggestion for congressional Republicans: If the IAEA won’t divulge the secret deals with Iran; well, let’s just cut our UN contribution by 50%.
Obama’s still secret nuclear deal with the Iranians includes two secret agreements between the IAEA and the mullahs. Yet Kerry has supposedly never seen these, and according to no less an authority than the Iranian delegate to the IAEA, the US is actually prohibited from knowing the details in these agreements. So it ‘s way past time to stop playing games, and end all the pseudo-diplomatic | Read More »
If Dems think Biden’s the answer, they are truly delusional
As Hillary’s poll numbers sink, and the headlines about her many scandals increase, Democrats are starting to publicly admit what many have known for a long time: their putative candidate is deeply flawed, not trusted by a majority of Americans, and may be facing serious legal issues in the coming months. Thus, we are now seeing a plethora of stories to the effect that Joe | Read More »
Statistical proof (sort of) that GOP leadership is way out of touch with the base.
The failure/ineptness/unwillingness (take your pick, or “all of the above”) of GOP leadership to move forward aggressively on key issues, such as shutting down Planned Parenthood, or halting the Iran nuclear deal, has brought conservative frustrations with Congress to a head. Eric has a diary today, Shut Down The Government. Now. and Steve Berman tells us that 140 House Members are Ready to #DefundPlannedParenthood So why | Read More »
