Politifact vs. Facts (and Rick Perry)
Over the last few years, a number of (allegedly) non-partisan fact checking organizations have come out that purport to provide a neutral analysis of the claims of politicians. I’m at a loss as to what function these organizations are even supposed to provide – at least over and above what you could find for yourself through competent use of Google. In reality, of course, they | Read More »
Oh, BTW: the Democratic front-runner is quite cordially hated in swing states.
So, you think that we have problems? New polls show Hillary Clinton underwater in Iowa, New Hampshire, Colorado and Virginia http://t.co/bfTPXuXr88 pic.twitter.com/6pz70PxZAj — Aaron Blake (@AaronBlakeWP) July 27, 2015 Goodness gracious, but that’s the Democratic Nightmare Scenario right there, huh? Hillary Clinton is still on track to get the nomination in early states… but the populace in general simply Does Not Like Her. The Washington | Read More »
Chris Farley Government: Remember When It Was Congress That Made Law? That Was Awesome
Remember that recurring Saturday Night Live skit where the late Chris Farley was the ultimate fanboy – interviewing those for whom he was the ultimate fanboy? Sniveling and sweaty, he would bring up some of his favorite memories of his interviewees – pretending they were questions by prefacing them with “Remember…?” And when the interviewee said he did in fact remember, Farley would blurt out | Read More »
Ron DeSantis For Senate
In February of 2009, I declared the Florida Senate race between Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% and Charlie Crist a “hill to die on.” Rubio was at three percent in the polls. Charlie Crist was the sitting Republican Governor of Florida. And the entire weight of the Republican Party was behind Crist. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) 53% and the | Read More »
Where’s The Outrage? cc: @JebBush, @GovernorPerry, @MarcoRubio, @ScottWalker, @CarlyFiorina
UPDATE: I have removed Governor Jindal’s twitter handle from the title. His staff reached out to me to say he is not engaging in politics right now. In the wake of the Lafayette shooting, he has gone off the campaign trail to focus on the situation in Louisiana. Today he is attending the funerals of the victims. —— It is stuff like this that has | Read More »
The 20 Most Unlikable TV Characters of the Last Decade
This isn’t the sort of thing we do here normally but, what the heck, it’s Sunday, and I’m bored. Plus, I’ve watched a lot of TV over the last ten years. So when I woke up this morning at 5:00am to deal with a fussy baby, and the idea for this post popped into my head, I decided to run with it. So here we | Read More »
Defending Unborn Life is a Non-Negotiable
If there is anything we as a nation have been reminded of in the past few weeks, it is the grim reality of abortion. The videos recently released discussing fetal tissue/organ procurement have shocked us to our core, but the truth is, abortion happens everyday. It happens all across our country. Little lives, at various stages of development, begin the day in the safety of | Read More »
Another Problem Caused By Seattle’s High Minimum Wage
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com I watched the video above and grappled before I could believe it. People who just got their salaries bumped by the minimum wage hike in Seattle, WA are now gripping because higher wages kick them off of the dole. Kshama Sawant didn’t see that one coming. But then again, why not? What do the Kshama Sawants of the world | Read More »

Which One is the ‘Drag Queen’?
Now I’m officially confused. Can we or can’t we refer to a man dressing as a woman as a “drag queen?” Because the New York Daily News doesn’t seem to know. In their daily email blast, two articles were featured, one headline reading “’Manhattan Medium’ Thomas John has celeb clientele — and shady past as scammer and drag queen” and the other “Caitlyn Jenner receives | Read More »
Hillary Clinton tries to change the subject
Late Friday, word oozed out of Hillary Clinton’s camp that she would testify before Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 80%‘s Benghazi committee. Hillary Clinton agreed on Friday to appear at an October public hearing before the House Benghazi Committee, her campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. But the House Select Committee on Benghazi is pushing back against the 2016 Democratic frontrunner’s | Read More »

Why Are Unions In The Abortion Business?
Over the last week, as videos emerged of executives at the abortion factory known as Planned Parenthood allegedly selling aborted baby body parts, Planned Parenthood has, rightfully, come under heavy fire. Now, however, Planned Parenthood’s allies on the Left are circling the wagons to defend the abortion factory. For example, rather than investigating the potentially illegal practices of Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama’s new Attorney General, | Read More »
Classified Information Found On Hillary’s Private Email Account
The New York Times reports that government investigators “discovered classified information” on the private email account that Hillary Clinton used while secretary of state. Worse, the inspectors general of the State Department and the nation’s intelligence agencies said the information they found was classified when it was sent and remains so now. This is a problem for Hillary, who has been saying for months that | Read More »
Grassley Plants Seeds for Corporate Cronyism
Science has proven that ethanol is bad for your engine. Ethanol creates more smog than using regular gasoline. Ethanol reduces the fuel efficiency of your car and the government’s fuel mandates are hurting the poor as farmers make more money converting food to fuel than growing food to feed people. There is not much to love about ethanol, unless you are the Senator from | Read More »
Democrats want more elderly white guys to run for president
In an election in which the electorate seems to be shouting change, the Democrats have hooked their electoral hopes to Hillary Clinton, a bitter, spiteful woman who has never accomplished anything without a man giving her the position, and who would be as old as Ronald Reagan at inauguration. Her primary challengers is Bernie Sanders. Bernie is 73, which is to say he and Clinton | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ted Cruz is a champion
Since the founding of the Internet, the US Government has had ultimate oversight over its critical institutions. There was a conference in Brazil pushing to end that, and replace the US with the UN or some ‘multilateral’ system, creating a power vacuum that could be filled by China and/or Russia. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% is saying ‘not so fast’ to that. | Read More »
Getting The Words Of Jesus Straight On Gay Marriage
Since the beginning of the church there have been many individuals with many conflicting beliefs who have called themselves Christian. The Gnostics believed that you could ascend the levels of being and become gods. They claimed to be Christians. A very large group today who also call themselves Christians believe that you can become a god with your own world to rule. There have been | Read More »
Hillary Clinton: we are scared of a black man in a hoodie
Yesterday the ever glib, Hillary Clinton had a senior moment at a campaign stop: Let’s be honest: For a lot of well-meaning, open-minded white people, the sight of a young black man in a hoodie still evokes a twinge of fear. And news reports about poverty and crime and discrimination evoke sympathy, even empathy, but too rarely do they spur us to action or prompt | Read More »
