Ask the Redskins: Fighting for your values works.
Conservatives are often painted as the out-of-touch meddlers in culture today. We boycott, we ban, we scold, we stand athwart history. We get laughed at by the left, but we fight anyway.
Hip, moderate, urbane folks tell us this is all wrong. Instead of criticizing culture, standing apart from it, and trying to reject its influences, we’re told we need to be in it, engage with it, and stand up for what we believe in from within.
Today’s politicized action by the US Patent and Trademark Office, canceling the trademark of the Washington Redskins, shows that actually, that restraint is what is all wrong. No matter how popular something is, no matter how much the general public at large is fine with it, concerted political activism can and will work.Read More »
The Redskins Get Their Trademark Yanked by Aggrieved White Liberals
The Washington Redskins have had their trademark yanked by the US Patent and Trademark Office because white liberals who feel guilty about their privilege were offended. That is the actual fact.

Khattala’s arrest another of Obama’s Potemkin victories

Mead Treadwell for Alaska
In the Alaska Senate race, I’m going with Mead Treadwell, the Lt. Governor. This puts me at odds with some of my friends on the right. But I think Mead would be the best.

VIDEO: Embattled, and Exasperated, Gov. Hickenlooper to Colorado Sheriffs: WTF!!
I told you more was coming… I already talked about Hickenlooper’s “half ass” apology to the sheriffs, along with his blatant lies, but this takes the cake. For those without video, or who have small children in the room, what is heard in the video is Governor Hickenlooper apologizing to the sheriffs for not knowing that the sheriffs tried to meet with him while these | Read More »
Sure, Hillary Clinton should promise to fulfill Barack Obama’s legacy!
I don’t really want* to fisk this article on how Hillary Clinton should run on a platform of being Barack Obama’s third term – she totally should, by the way – but it’s hard not to fisk when somebody leads off with a sentence this interruptible. So let me just interject, the one time: Conventional wisdom has it that President Obama’s middling poll numbers will be | Read More »

The fish dispute stems from state contemplating consideration of sharply raising the rate of fish | Read More »
Democrats Join the Fight to Get Thad Cochran Re-Elected

Martha Robertson (D CAND, New York-23[*]) using already debunked DCCC talking points.
Martha Robertson (D CAND, NY-23), having apparently not learned her lesson about telling lies in the course of campaigning, is doubling down on stupid: Two weeks ago, a local news station ran a story concerning Robertson’s claim that the VA suffered from “decades of underfunding.” That claim had previously been rates as false. Robertson then shifted gears and falsely accused Congressman Reed of voting “against reducing | Read More »

Obama’s Missing 18 Minutes of Tape
In order to properly analyze the media’s treatment of the revelation that hundreds or perhaps thousands of emails sent or received by Lois Lerner, the key figure in the IRS scandal, along with apparently six other IRS employees, have been mysteriously lost and cannot be recovered in response to a subpoena, it is necessary and instructive to recall the media’s treatment of similar revelations in | Read More »
Obama uses a crisis to roll the GOP on “comprehensive immigration reform”
When the Fast & Furious scandal came to light it had the appearance of a manufactured crisis designed to drive the US domestic debate on gun control. If US purchased weapons were showing up in the hands of Mexican narcotrafficantes then those weapons could make a case for more stringent gun control within the United States. Obama has made numerous statements on the chaos American | Read More »
What Dana Milbank Does Not Tell You
If you read this piece by Dana Milbank you’d think the Heritage Foundation was going off the rails on Benghazi and waging attacks against muslims. Of course, neither it nor the organization that borrowed Heritage’s facilities, is doing so. Nonetheless, the left and Dana Milbank want to paint prosecutor Andy McCarthy’s group as racist and also the Heritage Foundation. Mind you, what Milbank does not | Read More »
