“It’s nobody’s turn. It’s everybody’s test, and it’s wide open.”
Donald Trump is going to tell us something today. I expect an Exploratory Campaign and not a full announcement of a Presidential campaign. I could be wrong. And if Trump does announce, I’m not sure what role he fills in an already crowded field of experienced red meat throwers. My sense, and I’m sure he would disagree, is that Trump is more interested in going | Read More »
Tech at Night: Dueling bills on patents and sales tax
It’s never a good sign when a piece of legislation is a major priority for lobbyists, but that’s what comprehensive patent reform is. It’s time ACU and HAFA scored against it.
Ted Cruz Will Be At The RedState Gathering. Will You?

Richard Burr’s Advertising June Email Acquisition on National Security
This strikes me as rather funny. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) 39% wants you to sign a petition to “support a safer and more prosperous America!” At least that is what the graphic says. But look at the URL: https://action.burrforsenate.com/advertising-june-email-acquisition-national-security/ “Advertising June Email Acquisition” In other words, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) 39% isn’t really going to do anything with your | Read More »
In Defense of “Jeb!”
I come not to praise the candidate, but defend his logo. I’ve seen some hilarious analysis this morning that the reason for Jeb Bush’s logo “Jeb!” is to distance himself from his brother. If history began for you with the “hope and change” of 2008, you might think that, but you would be wrong. Jeb Bush has used that logo through out the greater part | Read More »

English teacher: why study Shakespeare? He’s a dead white guy
One of the bywords of the cultural revolution of the late 1960s when it his college campuses was “relevance.” Students, it was claimed, had the ability to decide what was “relevant” to them and to disregard the rest. What it boiled down to was two generations of history majors who never had to memorize dates and English majors who were never required to learn grammar. | Read More »

Net Neutrality Hits – The Media Misses, Badly
As we’ve often discussed, the Tech Media is just as hopelessly Leftist and lost as the broader Jurassic Press. They are both echo chambers – talking points and terrible ideas bounce with great rapidity around their tiny little worlds. They are the Bubble Boys (and Girls) of news. When a Tech Media story crosses over to the broader Jurassic Press – their ridiculous Leftist repetitiveness | Read More »
Christie parrots leftwing talking points to attack Ted Cruz
Just what we need. A squishy (or fluffy, depending upon how you view cellulite) northeast governor considering a run for the presidency visits Iowa and uses talking points lifted directly from progressive propaganda to attack Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took aim at 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) on Friday, accusing him and other lawmakers | Read More »
Resign yourself to not having Barack Obama to kick around very much anymore.
This is basically what happened: President Barack Obama wanted Congress to pass a variety of trade-related proposals, and he didn’t want to have to rely on Republican votes in order to see that happen. He lobbied his fellow Democrats in favor of trade, and he lobbied them hard. In the end, it wasn’t enough. On Friday, the president endured a stern censure from the very | Read More »
Democratic Party Now Literally Selling Hate
Democrats.org, the Democratic Party’s official website and email domain, sent the following email today suggesting Father’s Day gifts for your Democrat dad (assuming of course that you would do anything as gender-exclusive as celebrate Father’s Day): Here’s a description of that lovely item, which you can own for only $30: That’s right: it’s a coffee travel mug that advertises your seething hatred of the Tea | Read More »
The Left Can’t Handle An Inconvenient Truth
Identity politics is a prized possession in the Left’s arsenal until someone uses certain identities in a way in which the Left disapproves. They initially shout: “Be who you believe you are, and present yourself in the way you want!” Only, they’re lying. They don’t mean be free to be your (chosen) self. They really mean be free to be your (chosen) self only if | Read More »

Rachel Dolezal’s Race to the Bottom
The Spirit Of Rachel Dolezal Nobody should have to care what racial background that either Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) 16% or Spokane NAACP Chapter Head, Rachel Dolezal claim to be spawned from. The Leakeys basically proved we all came from Africa back in the day, so my reparations check should arrive in the mail sometime next week. I | Read More »

A quick guide to the what’s happening in the trade alphabet soup [Updated]
The abbreviations are flying fast and furious, and it can be hard to keep up. Here’s a guide to where we’re at.
TPP Fast Track is dead… or just sleeping
Via The Hill: Defying President Obama, House Democrats on Friday rallied to vote down legislation granting aid to workers displaced by trade, dealing a potentially fatal blow to the fast-track legislation that had been scheduled to hit the floor. An overwhelming majority of Democrats voted to sink the package in the 126-302 vote despite an impassioned plea from the president, which he delivered in person | Read More »
The White-est of All Guilt
The NAACP has either decided to promote diversity in their hiring or someone is a very big fraud. SPOKANE, Wash. — Controversy is swirling around one of the Spokane region’s most prominent civil rights activists, with family members saying the local leader of the NAACP has falsely portrayed herself as black for years. Rachel Dolezal is president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, chair | Read More »
Jeb Bush was right in 1995 and is right today
Much of the media is salivating over a book Jeb Bush wrote in 1995 that may, or may not, have been read my someone. In it Bush makes this statement: One of the reasons more young women are giving birth out of wedlock and more young men are walking away from their paternal obligations is that there is no longer a stigma attached to this | Read More »
