House Freedom Caucus draws a line in the sand: No funding for PP. Beginning of the end for Boehner?
There was one really good piece of news from Capitol Hill yesterday. The House Freedom caucus adopted an official position (meaning it was supported by at least 80% of the members) that they will oppose ANY spending measure that includes funding for Planned Parenthood. “Any spending measure” includes a CR, which appears to be House leadership’s plan of choice to fund the government and avoid | Read More »
Pop quiz: guess how many Democrat senators who support Obama’s Iran deal will be left in office after the 2018 elections?
I’m catching up with some paperwork this afternoon, and switching between the Cubs/Cardinals game and the Senate debate on the Iran resolution. CRAP: Cubs blow the game.. Catching snippets of several Democrat senators attempting to cover their asses ….. it appears that the talking points they were handed stress the importance of using the phrase “despite the many flaws in this agreement I will vote | Read More »
Should Carly challenge Hillary to a debate now?
I was watching a clip of Carly Fiorina at a campaign stop this weekend, and she closed her talk with this line: “I know what you’re all thinking, whether or not you support my candidacy, that you’d love to see me debate Hillary Clinton.” And it got me thinking, so I thought I’d throw it out for discussion: Is there any reason why Democrat and | Read More »
So why is Hillary’s IT geek planning a Lois Lerner defense strategy?
Bryan Pagliano, a former State Dept staffer who worked on Hillary’s home-brewed email server, notified Congressional committees if called to testify, he would invoke his 5th amendment rights. Hmm??? Let’s see now. The LAST person to do so was one Lois Lerner, who, while taking the 5th, also professed her complete and total innocence, and since then….well…nothing. She’s retired from the IRS, now collects her | Read More »
The outline of Hillary’s email defense takes shape: “I was too stupid to be Secretary of State”
With the latest release of some 6000+ additional emails, and the disclosure that some 150 of them have now been redacted because they contained “classified” information, Hillary now appears to be be in serious trouble and facing legal jeopardy. The constant drip, drip, drip of news about the emails is sending her poll numbers somewhere below the political equivalent of the Mendoza line, and revelations | Read More »
Why Carly Fiorina might actually be far better off NOT making the prime time CNN debate
As it stands now, there’s a good chance that Carly Fiorina may not qualify for the top ten, prime time CNN debate in a few weeks, and again be relegated to the so called “kiddie table.” This is because CNN is using an average of all polls, including those taken early on, before Carly made such an impact at the FOX debate. CNN says it | Read More »
Joe Biden IS running for President….(but just not right at this moment)
I’ve long believed ( and indeed have written here six months ago) that Liz Warren was running the perfect stealth campaign for president. Despite the hopes of her many supporters that she enter the race, it made no sense for her to do so. Why expose yourself early on to the all-out Clinton attack apparatus, and likely split the party in the process. Instead, far better | Read More »
Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind….and apparently so have a lot of conservatives.
The other day in Iowa, Ann Coulter was the opening act for the latest performance of the Trump three-ring circus. Possibly it was induced by the sheer elation of Trump’s plugging her new book, with the expectation that if she continues to be a camp-follower at future events, people will be bringing copies of her book up for her to autograph. I used to be | Read More »
Trump will NOT apologize for retweeting ‘Megyn Kelly is a bimbo.’ – “Look, I know bimbos when I see one. I married three of them”
The war between Trump and FOX took an oddly different and dark turn the other day. Displaying a near-childlike inability to “let sleeping dogs lie,” Trump welcomed back Megyn Kelly from vacation with a series of Tweets deriding her top-rated show. Trump poured fuel on the fire by retweeting a supporter’s post that said of Kelly, “The bimbo is back.” Until this latest exchange, it | Read More »
Dear Donald: Stop for now attacking the other candidates, and focus on the REAL enemies, Boehner and McConnell
Donald Trump has a unique opportunity in the next 5 weeks to further shake up the GOP race, and to increase his support among the GOP base. Trump’s been busy attacking everyone and anything. That’s politics. As one wag put it over 100 years ago, “politics ain’t beanbag.” And his attacks are having some success. After first vowing to ignore “Mr. Trump,” Jeb Bush has | Read More »
