Seriously, the DNC needs to fire its social media squad over this ‘ethnic cleansing’ own-goals.
As my readers may remember, yesterday the Democratic party managed to get itself put in a bad place by its own social media squad over ‘ethnic cleansing’ (basically, said squad turned a talk radio caller into the Voice of the Republican Party, because we’ve relentlessly given the Democratic party nothing better to work with this cycle). The Daily Caller covered this as well: it contained | Read More »
Obama Administration Grubered Americans on ObamaCare Enrollment
The lesson we learn from Jonathan Gruber (the MIT professor turned high-paid ObamaCare architect who admitted the Administration deceived the public to pass ObamaCare) is that the Obama Administration will do or say anything to prop up ObamaCare.
You know the litany of lies (you can keep you plan, no abortion funding, not a tax, etc.), but now we have a brand new deception: ObamaCare’s enrollment numbers.Read More »
Obama’s Justice Department declares war on school choice
Now that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has effectively gelded the Wisconsin teacher’s mafia and limited its ability to extort dues from members that become the mother’s milk of the Democrat machine in Milwaukee, Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has waded into the fray with an attempt to browbeat Wisconsin into killing a vibrant school choice program. Why? Follow the money. If you kill school choice | Read More »
@RepHalRogers thinks he is Jon Gruber
In the classic television series, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Detective John Munch — played by Richard Belzer — confronts a murder suspect over lying to him. He isn’t upset about the lie, he expects that, what he’s upset about is that the lie is so implausible that it is actually an insult: As a prelude to Obama’s address last night declaring which laws | Read More »
David Harsanyi on Obama’s Abuse of Power
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by David Harsanyi to discuss last night’s immigration orders from President Obama, if it was as bad as expected and what the GOP can do to rebut this abuse of power.Read More »
You Are Being Played
I oppose comprehensive immigration reform. I think Congress always fails as comprehensive legislation. But, long time readers know I am squishier on the immigration issue than many RedStaters. There are portions of what the President proposed last night that I support in principle and, frankly, was surprised by how mild some of the actions were, given the run up to the announcement. But whatever I | Read More »
Gay Rights and Sex Crimes: Ironies From the Human Rights Campaign Files
The Human Rights Campaign is a gay rights group in Washington heavily connected to the Obama Administration. In the past, the group has labeled the Family Research Council a “hate group.” In fact, the day before a gay rights activist entered the Family Research Council’s offices to kill its employees, the Human Rights Campaign had labeled FRC a “hate group.” The Human Rights Campaign recently | Read More »
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Friends: Immigration, Spotify, and GMOs
In this, the pilot episode of The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Friends, the regular panel of hosts will tackle a smorgasbord of issues including civil asset forfeiture reform, Obama’s immigration executive order, the Taylor Swift v. Spotify Kerfuffle, the box office review, Obamacare, and (maybe) Bill Cosby. We’ll be live at 9pm Eastern time. If you want to join in the discussion, ask questions, | Read More »
Is There a Deal Between Adelson and Reid to Ban Online Gaming?
Last month we reported about the Sheldon Adelson-financed group the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling and two of its lobbyists who, when they held elective office, supported the use of gambling revenues to fund favored projects. “The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling is a relatively new group headed by two politicians-turned-lobbyists, former New York Republican Gov. George Pataki and former Denver Democrat Mayor Wellington Webb,” As stated in | Read More »
Watch Obama’s immigration speech here.
Embedded video via The Daily Signal. It’s supposed to be on at 8 PM, so your guess is as good as mine as to when it starts. I doubt that there will be questions, afterward. As to the speech itself… let’s just say that there are some signs that some extremely hasty editing was done to it and the new immigration policy that it represents. | Read More »
Democrats’ vaunted social media team embarrasses its own party, again.
I thank God every day that I don’t have to produce this kind of masturbatory fodder for my political party. ‘Ethnic cleansing.’ Ye gods and little fishes… Frankly, I don’t WANT readers who get off on this kind of Democratic agitprop, but I guess that after the last election desperate times call for, as they say, desperate measures. Link is here, for the moment: it | Read More »
A time for testing
During an appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show Wednesday night, (R-TX) emphasized that President Obama’s impending executive orders on amnesty represent a threat to the Constitutional order, as well as imposing a policy the American people clearly do not want. “This last election was a referendum on amnesty, and the American people overwhelmingly rose up and said, ‘No, we don’t want lawless amnesty,’” Cruz | Read More »
Dump Gruber Ally, Doug Elmendorf, as CBO Director
A critical decision facing the new Congressional majority is the appointment of a director for the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO acts, in the words of former Bush economic advisor and economics professor Greg Mankiw: Someone recently said to me that the CBO director is not really a player in the political game. He is more like the referee. That analogy sheds light on why Doug is the | Read More »
Republicans Will Vote to Fund President Obama’s Amnesty. Then Try to Take It All Back.
You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him. That is happening again. This time | Read More »
Jim Webb throws his hat in the 2016 ring
Virginia Democrat and former senator Jim Webb has created an exploratory committee as the first stage in a 2016 presidential run. Via Politico: “I made this decision after reflecting on numerous political commentaries and listening to many knowledgeable people. I look forward to listening and talking with more people in the coming months as I decide whether or not to run.” The Vietnam veteran added, | Read More »
Asian students sue Harvard for discrimination
In the 1920s many Ivy League schools faced a conundrum. Their admissions policy was based on how an applicant placed on an admissions test. If you scored high enough, you were admitted. Under that system the dimwitted scions of major donors were being turned away in favor of *gasp, horror* the sons of Jewish immigrants. According to Jerome Karabel in The Chosen: The Hidden History of Admission | Read More »
Will Lavender Nazis Kill a Reality Show?
The one thing that we’ve learned in the ongoing war over homosexual marriage is that homosexuals are probably the most vicious and vindictive interest group in the nation. They are not content with mere equality but rather are obsessed with demanding that their particular brand of sexual deviance is not merely accepted but celebrated as something other that what it is. Writing in “One Nation, | Read More »
Is Obama’s Executive Order on Immigration Unconstitutional?
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Andrew Kloster to discuss what to expect from President Obama’s executive order on immigration, if it is unconstitutional and what repercussions the administration may face.Read More »
Last night I took a lot of calls from angry listeners who were not just angry at the President, but at the GOP for not fighting to stop him.
Bernie Sanders – The Purest Leftist Possible in 2016.
So Diogenes wandered the City of Demville with his lamp. His shoulders sagged, his expression grew hang-dog. He searched in vain for one honest man other than Jonathan Gruber. Ah, but his eyes lit up and his frown turned around. There was one man….one honest man on the American Left. That one last defender of the faith was, alas, not a registered Democrat. He is | Read More »
