Business Insider Editor: Social Media Isn’t Necessary To Win Elections
Business Insider’s Politics Editor, Josh Barro, isn’t a fan of NRSC’s Communications Director Brad Dayspring. Citing a Politico piece from James Hohmann published yesterday, Barro labeled Dayspring as “juvenile” in his approach towards Twitter engagement. Given the various scandals plaguing Obama, it’s puzzling that Politico would write almost 1800 words on the DCSS and NRSC’s Twitter wars, but to say that the social media platform | Read More »
Hollow Tantrum: Obama’s Judicial Nominees Are Faring Better Than Bush
President Obama is playing hardball. He vows no compromise with his judicial appointments to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and this has some on the left, like Slate editor Emily Bazelon, excited. After all, Obama isn’t a fighter. He’s a reformer, or at least, that’s what his platform was in 2008. At that time, the fighter was Hillary. Yet, is this a ‘squirrel’ moment? Obama | Read More »
Obama UN Ambassador Nominee Supported American Invasion of Israel in 2002
The Institute of International Studies at UC Berkley, which has a long-running program called Conversations with History hosted by its executive director, Harry Kreisler, had a familiar face as a guest in 2002. That guest was Samantha Power. It was here that Power, who will be nominated to be our next Ambassador to the UN, endorsed an invasion of Israel to prevent future genocide. HARRY KREISLER: “Let me give you | Read More »
Excuse me, Ed Markey … You’re Misquoting The Hill Story About YOU!
Ed Markey doesn’t read the news. It’s either that, or he’s exceptionally awful with Twitter. Today, the congressman tweeted that the Hill reported on June 1 that Gabriel Gomez, his opponent, would be ”key to Republican attempts to obstruct President Obama’s agenda.” There’s only one problem: the Hill never said that. It came from Markey’s own ad, which was the basis for the Hill ‘s story. Therefore, | Read More »
That’s Funny! In Arkansas, Democrats Are Pro-Gun Rights And Against Background Checks
This is truly bizarre. The Democratic Party, which pushed hard for so-called universal background checks last winter, has reversed their position in Arkansas. After all, the pro-gun control camp again failed miserably, and the president wasted the most precious moments of his second term on this bad piece of legislation. Did the Democrats learn their lesson? No. Yet, are you surprised? No. If anything, Democrats are | Read More »
Here’s Something New: An Abortion Phone App
In New York City, the mecca of soda bans, an abortion is just a phone app away. Yes, that’s right. There’s a phone app for finding an abortion clinic. Thus, in a city where 40% of pregnancies end in abortion, it’s keeping its tradition as a bastion of infanticide. Penny Starr at CNS News reported on May 28 that: The New York City Health Department’s NYC teen website now | Read More »

Gov. Rick Perry Vetoes Law That Targeted Conservatives
For a state that takes pride in the individualistic roots of its history, it’s puzzling that the Texas legislature would consider passing a law that infringes upon the right to free speech. The state legislature, which has Republican majorities in both houses, has passed a law mandating that ”non-profit organizations and trade associations to disclose the names of the people who support them financially. The law | Read More »
Markey’s Tax Fetish
Ed Markey has a tax fetish. It’s a serious problem. He voted 271 times for tax increases as a congressman, and in a time where more small business are firing than hiring, he’s sure to continue that trend on a national level. Keeping the tradition as a New England liberal, Markey has yet to find a tax increase he doesn’t like.

DSCC Attacks Possible Challenger To Sen. Mark Pryor Over…Iran???
What do you do when you have no heavyweight candidates in any key senate races for next year? You go on a rather cantankerous rant against candidates who may, or may not, be running. In Arkansas, where Democrats are defending the highly vulnerable Sen. Mark Pryor, the DSCC has done just that, with a rather comical attack on Republican Congressman Tom Cotton over Iran.
