Donald Trump, Liz Mair, and political attack LLCs
The story going around is that Liz Mair founded Trump Card LLC, a political attack LLC which exists to take down Donald Trump. And while I’m sure the opposition research and media coverage will be interesting to opponents of Trump, I think the longer-lasting effect of this, will be a more-frequent use of attack LLCs in political races.
Make the President an offer he can’t refuse on refugees
As much as we rightly fear Islamic terror coming into our country, at the same time I think most of us also understand the legitimate fears any woman and mother has living in the Islamic world. So when it comes to refugees, let’s take the President at his word, and do a good deed at the same time. Let’s set a quota demanding that refugees | Read More »
The Era of the Senator
The esteemed Dan McLaughlin among others has promoted the idea that Governors are better choices for President than legislators are. And for years, the parties and the electorate seemed to agree. But with cable news and the Internet creating a perpetual conversation about national political issues, we’re now seeing the rise of the Senator as Presidential candidate. I’m not saying Governors are finished, but the | Read More »
Take it from Obama: There’s no more need for Refugees
According to the UN, “Migrants, especially economic migrants, choose to move in order to improve the future prospects of themselves and their families. Refugees have to move if they are to save their lives or preserve their freedom.” So the good news is, according to President Barack Obama, the war in Iraq and Syria is contained. There should be no more refugees, as the war | Read More »
Jeremy Corbyn’s own Labour party revolts on Terrorism
While most of the world was grateful that the security forces in Paris were able to stop as many of the terrorists as they could, and would hope for the same in their own countries, UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn was troubled. He came out yesterday in opposition to a “shoot to kill” policy for terrorists staging an attack in the UK. It turns | Read More »
Marco Rubio is right. Rand Paul seeks to weaken a nation.
We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons. So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is | Read More »
We’re going to hear a lot about ‘Islamophobia’ in the coming weeks, as the pacifists all run in to counsel inaction in the face of terror. But today on Twitter I learned what the real definition of Islamophobia is, courtesy of Donna Driscoll.
Guess which rhetorical tricks Donald Trump used against Ben Carson this week
Donald Trump is worried about Ben Carson. For a while there he was sure he had the GOP nomination wrapped up, as the yes-men surrounding him kept saying “Yes, Mr. Trump, you won the latest poll.” But even the brownest of noses can’t say that with a straight face anymore, so Trump has abandoned his old ‘counterpunch’ strategy and has begun using every dirty rhetorical | Read More »
Burn Baby Burn: #ConcernedStudent1950 can end Academia as we know it
“Academic freedom” used to be one of the major issues that the radical left paid close attention to. The modern institution of tenure, and the presumption that academic professors would keep their jobs in good behavior, dates back to the intense competition for professors after World War II. So while political pressures were considered, tenure was primarily used as a bargaining chip. During the Cold | Read More »
This anti-immigration group is recycling old anti-Catholic rhetoric
Back in the 1850s, America dealt with the fad of the the Know Nothing movement and its political wing, the American party. The group claimed to represent the interests of native Americans against the dangers of unrestrained immigration. However that one issue couldn’t really get support, so it instead went anti-Catholic, and sought to appeal to large numbers of Protestant immigrants who just wanted to | Read More »
Fifth Circuit upholds injunction against Obama’s Amnesty
Greg Abbott sued to stop Barack Obama’s administrative amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, back when he was Attorney General. Now he’s Governor, and he is winning, along with the other 25 states that joined Texas in suing: the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the injunction preventing the President from implementing his amnesty.
Leading California anti-amnesty group defends One Child Policy
Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) likes to portray itself as a conservative group. They run ads against Amnesty, and went hard after . Like FAIR and NumbersUSA, they want to dupe the American right into thinking they are an ally. But they aren’t. They have more in common with Chinese Communist hardliners than American conservatives.
Why is the Islamic State treating Turkey as an ally?
The Islamic State is an unrecognized country bordered by Iraq, Syria, Turkey, and the Kurdish-controlled regions south of the Turkish border. The Islamic State is actively fighting the governments of Syria, Iraq, and the Kurds. However in Turkey, when the Islamic State bombed Ankara, they bombed the socialist, pro-Kurdish parties, who were protesting in opposition to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his crypto-Islamist Justice and | Read More »
Putin joins the EU in declaring war on American data centers
Traditionally the US has been the world’s powerhouse for Internet data centers. We are the global hub of the Internet, and people put servers here. That’s been great for freedom on the Internet, since we don’t censor and strongarm like other countries do. Well, thanks to Edward Snowden’s propaganda, that’s changing. Russia is demanding that data be stored in Russia, where Putin can gain control, | Read More »
Virginia voters reject the gun grabbers as GOP retains Senate
Mike Bloomberg and his anti-civil rights group Everytown wanted Virginia. The front page of his website still promotes his desire to win the Virginia Senate from the Republicans, which would split control of the General Assembly and hand the advantage to Governor Terry McAuliffe in his twin quests for gun control and Obamacare expansion. Democrats in theory had a shot to take the Senate away, | Read More »
