Alaska’s Income Tax proposal shows why to protect the sales tax
Remember how they said that don’t worry, beating the Republican with independent Bill Walker is fine, and he’d be the TRUE CONSERVATIVE pick for Governor of Alaska? Turns out that was wrong, and backing the Republican was the right call. We know this because Bill Walker wants to impose an income tax on Alaska. That’s a terrible idea of course, but the root cause is | Read More »
Who’s winning Iowa’s conservatives, and who’s got the moderates?
So we’ve got a new poll out from Quinnipiac University looking at Iowa. has just taken over the Real Clear Politics lead in Iowa by a hair, a finding of Donald Trump 28, Cruz 27 isn’t surprising at all. What is interesting though is to see who’s winning Iowa’s conservatives, and who’s winning the moderates.
Ben Carson and Jeb Bush blew it. Here’s where their support is going.
Ben Carson and Jeb Bush were each in a position few people ever get to be in. They were the frontrunners to be a major party nominee for President of the United States. Some guys, like John Kasich, become bitter, resentful trolls because they never get there. Bush and Carson each had it, and foolishly fumbled it away. Bush did it by being entitled, out | Read More »
The underreported storyline of Ted Cruz’s Iowa surge
is on the move in Iowa. He’s crossed the 20 point mark in four straight polls and when you take into account the noise inherent in polling, he’s basically even with Donald Trump in Iowa at this point. That’s important because it could mark a permanent change in how Republican Presidential candidates address the state.
Time got it wrong with Angela Merkel
Time Magazine this year named Angela Merkel the Woman of the Year or, more accurately, Newsmaker of the year. They got it wrong. While Merkel was certainly in the news this year. She dealt with Greece, she dealt with Ukraine, and she’s now dealing with Syria. However in each of these she’s a reactive figure. She’s not making the news, she’s also involved in the | Read More »

Club for Growth has found a true conservative to beat this pro-abortion Republican
What if I told you there was a ‘Republican’ who is not only pro-abortion (“Basically a liar” sinking pro-life efforts), but voted for the debt ceiling increase, for Ex-Im, against the sequester, and against the RSC alternative budget? This is someone who’s bad on most every issue we care about. That Republican is , and Club for Growth has endorsed Jim Duncan against her in | Read More »
Chavezista Socialists lose badly in Venezuela
Since 1992 coup attempts by Hugo Chavez, his name has dominated politics in Venezuela. He first won a Presidential election in 1998, and by 1999 his coalition was able to win 121 out of 131 seats in the Constitutional Assembly election held that year. But fortunately after almost 20 years of socialist dominance, there is change coming to Venezuela. The Coalition for Democratic Unity (MUD) | Read More »
Net Neutrality’s Day in Court, Round 3
Net Neutrality, the concept that has been perverted by the extreme left, and its allies in the Obama administration, is bad for freedom, is illegal, and is going to depress investment if it isn’t thrown out. Today a three judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in United States Telecom Association v. FCC.
Trump blames Israel, invokes Nazi-style Jewish stereotypes
Donald Trump has said some crazy things in his run for President, and done a lot of pandering to white nationalists, but his visit to the Republican Jewish Coalition takes the cake. In his speech to the event he blamed Israel for the lack of peace, invoked the stereotype of Jews as greedy, and even suggested that the Jews were looking to control the Presidency.
Donald Trump is the new Rudy Giuliani
Real Clear Politics has a great new feature up, comparing the polling of the last three Presidential Cycles. I don’t think the RCP team could ever admit it, but the message is clear: “Don’t panic about Donald Trump.” The more I look at it, the more I’m convinced that as good as Trump’s polling looks, it doesn’t yet mean nearly as much as he wants | Read More »
Watch out for this leading misconception about Cyber Monday
Today is a day that online retailers have claimed as their own, for getting people to get online and buy stuff. It’s somewhat obsolete now, as online shopping is simply taking over for a lot of people, but the idea’s still out there. But there’s one huge misconception about online shopping: that it’s tax free. It’s actually not, yet it’s hugely popular anyway!
Global cooling predicted, again
The June 24, 1974 Time Magazine cover asked if we were heading into another Ice Age. Global cooling theory was popular, but of course became politically unpopular starting in the 1990s, right after the political billy club that was the Ozone Layer was solved by the Montreal Protocol in 1989. Serious climate watchers though have been explaining for years that the Earth’s climate depends on | Read More »
How can a single holiday greeting cause this kind of meltdown?
It started out a simple, harmless Happy Thanksgiving from the Washington Redskins. That’s all. “Happy Thanksgiving” with the team logo was what they Tweeted out on Thanksgiving morning. What came as a result was a remarkable display of anger and hate from the radicals.
Mother Jones leads with an incredibly racist story against Marco Rubio
Mother Jones came out today with a racist article, and led their home page with it today. The publication has come out with an attack on non-violent convicted felons participating in the political process in Florida, because they think it’ll hurt . Don’t take my word for it though, that this very concept is racist. It was just last month that Mother Jones said that | Read More »
Clock boy demands millions from school system, threatens lawsuit
So much for science and education: clock boy and Islamist Ahmed Mohamed is demanding $15 million be taken from the school system to be paid to him personally, along with written apologies, threatening he’ll sue if they don’t pay him his demand. Given that the whole clock building thing was a sham, I would look forward to discovery in such a lawsuit.
