Saturday’s Democrat debate: The last chance for ABC and the MSM to show they haven’t completely sold out to the Democrats
Democrats have a strategy to avoid dealing with national security and terrorism questions at the debate. In case you missed it, this Saturday night there’s another Democrat debate. The DNC strategy of protecting Hillary, by limiting the number of debates and also holding them when people are LEAST likely to tune in, continues. However, San Bernardino happened, and most inconveniently for Democrats. Before their last | Read More »
Busted!!! Paul Ryan is a well, “beard” for the GOP(e)
Well, crap…..ain’t that just a nice piece of coal for a conservative’s Christmas stocking. Speaker Ryan, aka Boehner 2.0, late Tuesday night revealed a budget busting deal to run the government for a year. Prior to being elected Speaker, in extended negotiations with House conservatives, Ryan promised, ABOVE ALL ELSE, a return to the regular order of the House. So, how’s that working out? Ryan’s | Read More »
An easy, elegant, and foolproof way for Ted Cruz to deal with Trump
The entire MSM, and much of the GOP(e), is doing everything possible to induce a steel cage match between Cruz and Trump. Cruz has thus far run a brilliant campaign; avoiding any direct criticism of The Donald, as he anticipates ultimately winning over many of Trump’s supporters. And at last night’s debate, “mirabile dictu,” Trump bestowed his blessing on Cruz, offering up the admission that | Read More »
Could the 2016 election turn out to be an E.L.E. for both the Democrat party AND the GOP(e)?
“Deep Impact” was a pretty good sci fi/disaster flic. The 1998 movie tells the story of what happens when earth gets clobbered by an asteroid, and mankind almost, but not quite, manages to avoid being vaporized. The movie was also a pretty good omen of what was to come. Morgan Freeman plays POTUS, who just happens to be black. And Tea Leoni is an investigative | Read More »
Uh, excuse me, but 65-70% of GOP voters do NOT want Trump as their candidate
Yes, Donald Trump has a solid core of support among GOP voters. About 30-35% support him, and will likely continue to do so, for the near future, no matter what he says or does. They are unflappable. Indeed the fervor of their support rises with each attack on Trump by the MSM. Just as the Democrats have long capitalized on the willingness of LIVs ( | Read More »
From now on, every time a Republican says “Obama” when talking about foreign policy and terrorism, they should instead say “Obama and Hillary Clinton”
Here’s a new, and abbreviated, “talking point” for all Republicans. It’s way past obvious that the war on terror is going to shape, if not outright define, the 2016 presidential election. What happened in San Bernardino last week is just beginning to percolate through the polls, and they’re only going to worsen for Obama, as the American people realize that their president has, well….NOTHING to | Read More »
Is the terrorist attack in California the death knell for Hillary?
After 14 Americans have died, with 17 more wounded, in the largest terrorist attack since 9/11; it is inevitable that we begin to assess the political implications of this event on the 2016 election. Some may feel it is callous and cynical to do so, even before the funerals have ended; yet time and tide wait for no man. The Democrats and the MSM are | Read More »
Want to end the problem of excessive use of force by police ? Easy. Eliminate police unions.
Set against the recent growth of the Black Lives Matter and social justice movements (which pretty much denigrate all cops as inherently evil, and also seek to emasculate the police) there has arisen a spirited, (and happily civil debate) among conservatives and libertarians, at Red State and elsewhere, as to the proper role and function of police in our society, and how some fear we | Read More »
Josh Earnest just stepped in it, BIG TIME!
WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest was on “Fox & Friends” this morning, and got into a rather contentious discussion with Elizabeth Hasselbeck. It’s been all over the internet. But of course, everyone’s missing the key point to come out of Earnest’s comments. At the end, Steve Doocey asked Earnst about the growing opposition to admitting Syrian refugees to the US, as fears increase of Islamic | Read More »
Syrian refugees, illegal immigration, the Tom Bradley effect, and the 2016 election.
Somehow the question of whether or not the US should accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees has merged with the issue of what to do about the tens of millions who are already here illegally in the US. Nearly all Democrats, and most of the MSM are pushing the view that we must be “compassionate,” stand up in unison and recite Emma Lazarus, and | Read More »
