Talking Turkey: National Security – and Growing Our Own Food
Turkey: Thursday is, of course, Thanksgiving. A holiday which celebrates our inconceivable good fortune and tremendous bounty. Most of us celebrate our good fortune – by joining with family and friends to consume massive amounts of bounty. We (should) do so in large part in remembrance of how hard it was for the Pilgrims to scrape together enough food on any day – let alone | Read More »
Is Net Neutrality ‘The Law’ Or ‘The Great Internet Power Grab’?
Sometime in the next several months, a federal appellate court will choose between two narratives used to describe the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) decision earlier this year to regulate the Internet as a public utility using “net neutrality” rules: Was the FCC simply implementing the law as Congress had always intended; or Was net neutrality a ploy for an Internet power grab by three unelected bureaucrats? A | Read More »
Where Is Liberal Rage Over Mass Shooting In New Orleans?
The location is New Orleans; home of many political footballs in the last decade. The incident was a shooting; the most (forgive me) triggering situation possible in American discourse. The number of victims was 17; more than were shot in Charleston. The setting? A playground. A playground. This is news from Louisiana on Sunday. Seventeen people were shot but survived when gunfire erupted on on | Read More »
Remedial Education: Baltimore Democrats Making Students Pay More For Less
As Congress continues conferencing on its bill overhauling No Child Left Behind, news just keeps on popping up that shows why you just can’t trust Democratic machine-run states and localities to handle education appropriately. This is an ongoing problem that I’ve written about before here and here. This time, the bad news comes from Baltimore, home of struggling Democratic presidential contender and former Maryland Gov. | Read More »
Poster Boy For Opposing the “No Fly List” Arrested for ISIS Ties
You probably won’t see this one on MSNBC. Or if you do, it’ll be to say the “no fly list” turned this poor man to terrorism. Nonetheless, MSNBC a few years ago highlighted the terrible plight of Saadiq Long. He became the poster child for opposing the “no fly list.” “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones” covered Saadiq Long’s sob story and he | Read More »
Trump is all about ethanol cronyism. Because of course.
The longer that Donald Trump’s campaign for president goes on, the more he is exposed as a deeply unconservative, anti-free market, anti-limited government liberal who has just conned the media and a bunch of poor, low-information voters into thinking he’s conservative by saying a bunch of inflammatory things, usually involving women or minorities. The latest example: Turns out Trump is big into ethanol mandates and thinks | Read More »
Is Ben Carson Collapsing?
It’s been a heady month for Ben Carson. For a guy who, at times, barely seems like he’s actually running for President (but definitely seems like he’s running a pretty good book tour), it must have been bizarre to see himself catapult to the top of the polls and actually put an end to Donald Trump’s 100-plus day reign as the undisputed leader in the | Read More »
Obama Wants to Kill ISIS…With Kindness
President Obama continued his blame shifting on Sunday in Malaysia, unsurprisingly claiming that virtually every move the United States could make that isn’t what he proposes be done in response to the ISIS terror attacks (which is nothing) would be “helping ISIS.” What a nifty rhetorical device for the President – either you are for exactly what he is doing or you are for the | Read More »
Obama is Trying to Legally Prevent People from Leaving America
Remember back in 2012, when good old crazy uncle Ron Paul said that he opposed building a wall on the Southern border because he was afraid it might be used to try to keep Americans in instead of keeping illegal immigrants out? Turns out we might owe at least a partial apology to laughing at Ron Paul for this one, because Barack Obama is attempting this very thing. | Read More »
Bernie Sanders Is Still Polling Better With Democrats Than Donald Trump Is With Republicans
The latest spate of deliberately outrage-provoking statements by Donald Trump has led to yet another round of hand-wringing over the fact that Trump continues to draw a little over a quarter of all Republican voters, both nationally and in the key early-voting states. We are continually implored to ask ourselves what this says about the Republican Party, and why more of his opponents don’t, on | Read More »
How Hillary Clinton And Barack Obama Created ISIS
How did it happen? How did a violent Islamic regime, a regime that is sort of like Saudi Arabia but with inferior grooming and hygiene, come to hold sway over large portions of Iraq and Syria? Over the weekend, Soviet Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev provided an interesting insight. During a visit to Kuala Lumpur, Medvedev laid blame for ISIS, and one must say for the | Read More »
Yes, Muslims Should Have to Answer for ISIS
Stick a microphone in front of an American liberal these days and they will wax big-hearted and full of understanding about how terrible it is that people are asking mainstream Muslims to condemn ISIS. “It’s ridiculous,” they will say, “to make these good people answer for their extremist, violent brethren.” Hillary Clinton went one step farther, claiming (somewhat counterintuitively) that Islam has nothing at all | Read More »
Clock boy demands millions from school system, threatens lawsuit
So much for science and education: clock boy and Islamist Ahmed Mohamed is demanding $15 million be taken from the school system to be paid to him personally, along with written apologies, threatening he’ll sue if they don’t pay him his demand. Given that the whole clock building thing was a sham, I would look forward to discovery in such a lawsuit.
What Happened In Louisiana?
On Saturday night, Louisiana elected for governor a very liberal Democrat legislator with absolutely no accomplishments other than having served in the military for eight years. He has filed and supported legislation to stop school choice, done the bidding of trial lawyers, and even promised to expand Medicaid (though he is currently backing away from it). So, why on earth would Louisiana do this? Was | Read More »
Note To The Left: Stop Trying To Turn Jesus Into A Flower-Child Hippie
The left spends far more time denigrating Christianity (they treat Scientology with more respect) than they do extolling its virtues. However, whenever Jesus can be worked into a debate to fit their political agenda, they exalt Him the way a Baptist preacher would during Sunday services. When Barack Obama was running for President in 2007/2008 and people were rightly mocking his time as a community | Read More »
Donald Trump, Liz Mair, and political attack LLCs
The story going around is that Liz Mair founded Trump Card LLC, a political attack LLC which exists to take down Donald Trump. And while I’m sure the opposition research and media coverage will be interesting to opponents of Trump, I think the longer-lasting effect of this, will be a more-frequent use of attack LLCs in political races.
You will be AMAZED at how cynical Hillary Clinton was in this tweet.
Oh, sure NOW Hillary Clinton wants us all to believe that all sexual assault charges should be believed until proven otherwise.Read More »
The Private Sector Solves Problems – Government Exacerbates and Creates Them
The seven years of the President Barack Obama Administration have provided us with two diametrically opposite things. The government time and again failing utterly in just about everything it tries to do – economic recovery, job creation, health care, defense of our borders and our nation, budget stewardship,…. Meanwhile, the Administration and its Democrat Party keep usurping and pushing to usurp as much of the | Read More »
Hey Republicans, You Can’t Just Run Against Barack Obama to Save Bad Candidates
The Louisiana Governor’s Mansion flipped to the Democrats just four years after Bobby Jindal won re-election against a Democrat who only got 17% of the vote with Jindal winning every parish. There are some lessons national Republicans should take away. First, candidates matter. Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) 84% was a terrible candidate. He threw Bobby Jindal under the bus to show Louisiana | Read More »
Show me the footage of people in Jersey City cheering 9/11, Donald Trump.
