Another SEIU-Funded Fast-Food Astroturf Strike Coming To A City Near You
On Wednesday morning, SEIU-turned-fast-food-worker spokesman Kendall Fells appeared on Bloomberg Television spouting his SEIU-written rhetoric and making believe that the strikes that are to take place on Thursday in “more than 100″ cities are all part of grassroots uprising for higher wages that started in New York in 2012. The fact is, Mr. Fells must have ingested too much French-fry grease because he is really | Read More »

Obama signals no major action against ISIS
If anyone had hopes of a comprehensive response by the Obama administration to the growing challenge presented by ISIS after Obama’s remarks in Estonia today they are indeed optimists. But what I’ve said from the start is, is that this is not going to be a one-week or one-month or six-month proposition. Because of what’s happened in the vacuum of Syria, as well as the | Read More »
12 year old Florida kid runs lemonade stand; municipal officials… *don’t* shut it down.
So, there’s a 12 year old kid in Dunedin, Florida with a lemonade/baked goods neighborhood stand… you know where this is going, right? Of course you do. This isn’t the first story of this type that you’d be hearing. Suffice it to say… look, this guy? Don’t be this guy. In a scenario reminiscent of the relationship between fictional characters Dennis the Menace and Mr. Wilson, | Read More »
First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight
Kay Hagan has been running a surprisingly close campaign against Thom Tillis, in spite of the fact that Hagan has done almost nothing of substance to distance herself from President Obama, who is broadly unpopular in North Carolina (and even more so if you accept the proposition that most everything Rasmussen does these days is garbage). Tillis is facing his own popularity problems in North | Read More »
On the important matter of Wendy Davis and the Dallas Cowboys
(Promoting this to the front because mocking Wendy Davis is always a worthwhile effort, and the author gets extra points for the Hank Hill reference…Bill S) The NFL season officially begins on Thursday. Voters head to the polls in 62 days. Pair the two together and you get why Wendy Davis’s (D – Future MNSBC Host) would waffle on what football team she roots for. | Read More »
Rand Paul’s Transparent Duplicity on Iraq
Watching Rand Paul come to a decision on foreign policy can be a dizzying experience, even for seasoned watchers of the career of Mitt Romney. Two short months ago, as ISIS was already rampaging across the Iraqi countryside, Rand Paul went on MSNBC and declared that Obama was doing a fine job in Iraq and that any problems that occurred there were the fault of | Read More »
Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?
Brian Beutler, who is what passes for an intelligent thinker in today’s American left, wrote an article in TNR yesterday encouraging President Obama to immediately implement his plan to enact amnesty via executive fiat, instead of waiting until after the elections. More specifically, Beutler wrote that such a move would not only be good policy, but also good politics. The sole basis for this assertion | Read More »
Will the 2014 Election Really be a Republican Wave?
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss the 2016 primary calendar, who might be the first candidate to get in the race and if this year’s election will really qualify as a Republican wave.Read More »
Joe Biden Puts In The Labor On Labor Day
Image Credit Toke Signals and Female Celebrity Leave it to Huey “The Kingfish” Biden to give a Labor Day Speech where a bunch of people live who can’t find work. That’s what Barack Obama’s walking anti-assassination insurance policy was doing in Detroit, MI to waste his daily allotment of time and Dioxide on September 1, 2014. He’s telling the city that can’t pay for its | Read More »
The Only Answer to the Evil of ISIS: Eliminate it By Force
Yesterday I visited a museum that had a WWII exhibit which contained snapshots of newspaper headlines published just prior to the beginning of the war between Nazi Germany and Poland, and they reminded me of some similarities to our current geopolitical situation. Before Hitler’s steamrolling of Poland and most of Europe via blitzkrieg, various politicians in Europe attempted to negotiate with Hitler, allowed him to | Read More »
The American Aristocracy
At one point in American history, and a point I hope we get back to, if an American worked hard enough, he could work his way up through the ranks to great success. He did not need a college degree. In the upper stratosphere, connections helped and eased the way. But outsider could still work their way in through hard work. In Obama’s America, it | Read More »
The Hollywood Box Office Dilemma
“North American summer revenue barely cracks $4 billion, an eight-year low and down 15 percent from 2013,” read the sub-header at the Hollywood Reporter. The New York Times headline was “Movies Have Worst Summer Since 1997″. Grantland weighed in. So too the Wall Street Journal. I have seen a bunch of movies this year. I like the movies. One day I want one of those | Read More »
Colorado’s Mark Udall Campaigning on Moral Cretinism
I am not sure if it will work or not, but Democrat Mark Udall is clearly convinced that he can ride to victory campaigning against the notion that an unborn human is a person. Virtually every word out of his mouth and a substantial portion of his ad buys focus exclusively on defending the absolute legal right to kill the smallest and most defenseless people | Read More »
Field Poll: Barack Obama’s appeal going sharply downward in California.
45/42 favorable ratings. In California. This is not good news for Democrats, going into the formal 2014 election season: I mean, imagine how Obama’s doing elsewhere. Mark DiCamillo, director of the Field Poll, said the trend is ominous for Obama, because the latest declines come from his base. Support among California Democrats dropped 8 percentage points to 68 percent over the last three months. Approval was | Read More »
Maryland’s thought police strike
Stephen King should thank his lucky stars he doesn’t live in Maryland. A teacher in Cambridge, Maryland has been suspended from teaching, banned from school property, had his home searched, and been taken in for emergency medical evaluation because of a novel he wrote under a pseudonym in 2011, three years before he was hired. A Maryland middle school teacher has been placed on administrative | Read More »
President Obama Says “We Don’t Have a Strategy” on ISIS, Except He Does
“We don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with ISIS jihadists.
That’s what President Obama announced to the world, including the terrorist army inflicting genocide on Christians in Iraq and Syria.
But the reality is President Obama does have a strategy. He’s had one from the day he took office. Apologize for America, appease the radical Muslim world, and ignore the threat posed by jihad.Read More »
Boundless Grace Within the Bounds of Penitent Souls
These are two great quotes, thoughts from which might make it into my Sunday School lesson this Sunday. Walker Percy wrote this one a few decades ago. The Church can indeed change, has changed, might now or in the future change in its encounter with a particular culture, my own included. But I need not warn you, I am sure, of the dangers of overacculturation. | Read More »
Gary Peters (D-MI) vs. The Michigan Economy
Gary Peters, the Democrat candidate running to replace Carl Levin in the Senate, has decided to run on a campaign of ruining the Michigan Economy by destroying America’s manufacturing sector, especially the manufacture of automobiles: Michigan Senate candidate Gary Peters wants voters — and elected officials — to know one thing: you can’t talk about climate change without talking about jobs. “I think from an | Read More »
