Bob Corker (.@SenBobCorker) Triumphant
Via The Washington Post: Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) 12% of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favor the Iran nuclear deal Wednesday, ensuring a landmark victory for President Barack Obama over ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel. “No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian regime,” Mikulski said in a statement. “I have concluded that | Read More »
Speech codes, but only for Whitey?
Sometimes we get an interesting look into the minds of the radicals. I limit my exposure to their rantings, but in preparing for Tech at Night posts, I have to read some of it, unfortunately. I ran into a hilarious juxtaposition of articles at the Daily Dot today, that highlighted the racism bubbling beneath the surface in the Social Justice left.
The Washington Post calls bull***t on Hillary’s email excuses
As my colleague, Leon Wolf, pointed out yesterday, Hillary can’t rationally claim to not have sent classified material when she either knew or, due to a senior moment, should have known she was creating a classified document. Hillary’s defense, thus far, has revolved around two points. First, that she did not send or receive material that was marked as classified using her off-the-wall and highly | Read More »
#WMATA Metro passengers stop a kidnapping in DC
Back in July, DC Metro riders did nothing as a man was murdered on the train. My reaction was that this is what happens when you disarm the honest population: armed criminals have their way. Fortunately this morning, an unarmed criminal was stopped attempting to kidnap a baby.
Sniffing Hillary Clinton Staffer Noses
“She is trying to run a campaign as her own woman when she originally got elected by being Bill Clinton’s kept woman.”A listener to my radio last night suggested that in New York City you can tell who Hillary Clinton’s staffers are because nearby dogs would rather sniff their noses than other dogs’ butts. There is probably some truth to that. Based on a reading | Read More »
More Flopsweat from Jeb Bush
To say that the Bush campaign is flailing about is being charitable and gracious. The campaign is in deep trouble and it has the defensive instincts of a baby harp seal. After being the target of a couple of months of direct attacks from Donald Trump, the Bush campaign has decided to hit back with this ad which highlights the various left wing positions taken | Read More »
Carly Fiorina’s Merit is Not that She’s a Woman
I like Carly Fiorina. She is a fantastic communicator with a precise, measured delivery. She appears firm in her resolve to be a leader, and not just an entertaining candidate. I believe she is an excellent addition to the race for the White House. Her inclusion is not just a positive addition to the GOP field, but to the idea of a presidential campaign as | Read More »

As Global Growth Slows, The Dow Jones Industrial Average Goes Down
Cue The Drudge-Siren : The NYSE put Rule 48 in effect to “smooth” the market opening Monday morning. Oh, the glorious smell of idiots panicking in the morning. Dow Jones Industrial Average Futures were off by somewhere between 300 and 400 points Monday morning as the birds happily sang and the grass grew in its bedewed verdure. Last week they panicked because the mean, old | Read More »
Have We Not More Faith Than This?
“We cannot compartmentalize our faith. We cannot say I’m a Christian, but this is separate. We cannot tribalize Christianity”One of my favorite emails after the Trump situation at the RedState Gathering was this piece of hate mail, which I present to you in its entirety from email address to email signature line, lightly edited.

Barack Obama is Paralyzed by Fear
Batman is one of my favorite superheroes ever. Among his many winning qualities as a comic book character is his spectacular Rogue’s Gallery, featuring personified neuroses and obsessions. The Joker, of course, is the standard-bearer of crazy. His insanity is truly top-notch. However, one of my favorites outside of the Clown Prince of Crime is Jonathan Crane, more commonly known as The Scarecrow. His obsession | Read More »
Hillary Knew Good and Well Those Emails Would Become Classified
Image Credit: JStone/Shutterstock.com Let me bore you guys with a little bit of lawyer talk. Sorry to phrase stuff this way, but I think it’s important because the concept of confidentiality, work product, and privilege are intimately familiar to a lawyer, and Hillary Clinton was a relatively successful one for decades. The law has a concept called “attorney work product” which | Read More »
Marco Rubio: sugar subsidies preserve American agriculture
Every once in a while a politician says something that you think can’t possibly be correct… until you find that it is. This happened earlier in the month (better late than never) when Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% was asked about sugar subsidies: “I’m ready to get rid of the loan program for sugar, as long as the countries that export sugar | Read More »
Donald Trump Shows Why Money In Politics Is A Good Thing
It remains to be seen how soon the summer romance of Republican voters with Donald Trump will fade as we move into the serious political season that follows Labor Day. I continue to believe that the nomination will end up going to one of the many other Republican candidates who are more responsible, more electable, and possessed of more conservative principles and experience in electoral | Read More »
A look at the GOP Presidential polling four and eight years ago
It’s often misunderstood what polls do. Some are under the false impression that the purpose of a poll is to predict the election results. That’s not quite true, though close to the election, the difference doesn’t matter. However this far out, the difference means everything. Polls measure the current feelings of the electorate. The further out you get from the election, the more detached the | Read More »
