Follow the Money: Macy’s
Two years ago the so-called Progressive Congress went after Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren for his involvement with the nonpartisan Fix the Debt Coalition. The liberal group accused Lundgren of betraying the “spirit of Christmas“ by lobbying for common-sense economic reforms like lowering taxes, reducing the deficit and fixing Medicare and Social Security, which the Huffington Post was more than happy to insinuate amounted to “Grinch”-like | Read More »
Boehner scrambling to find Democrat votes for Cromnibus
The Continuing Resolution/Omnibus appropriation bill, aka cromnibus, wending its way through the House is in trouble. Dissatisfaction with the bill and the underlying strategy to deal with Obama’s executive overreach is wide and deep in the GOP caucus and it seems like Boehner will have to violate the Hastert Rule in order to force the bill through the House. Via The Hill Speaker [mc_name name=’Rep. | Read More »
Chuck Schumer and pretending that the Democratic party is not what it is.
This is an entertaining article on Chuck Schumer by Dan Henninger, but this sentence makes me raise an eyebrow: “With [his speech indicating that Democrats should not have concentrated on Obamacare], Chuck Schumer was sending an audible signal to state and local party bosses around the country and to peeved donors—aghast at the midterm results—that not everyone in Washington has lost his mind to the | Read More »
Responding to TPM’s Poor Excuse to the Poors
Image via March Marcho / Shutterstock.com Recently over at Talking Points Memo, an opinion piece titled, “Why Do Poor People ‘Waste’ Money On Luxury Goods,” sought to set the record straight about, well, exactly what the title stated. “We hates us some poor people,” begins author Tressie McMillan Cottom; a disturbing start to a post that offers up not much more | Read More »
We’ve Crossed 100 Orders of Balls for John Boehner. Keep Sending!
John Boehner needs to stop playing with Barack Obama’s balls and get some of his own. Go here and join the movement. Send a set of blue balls to John Boehner as a visually distinct message that he needs to find his testicular fortitude and stop the President’s amnesty plan. My original post on this is here and the address to mail the balls to | Read More »
In the UVA Rape Case, Liberals Dismayed to Learn that Facts Matter
Let me start this piece out by saying that I don’t know one way or another whether the now infamous alleged gang rape of a UVa student (as reported in Rolling Stone) happened. Obviously, I wasn’t there, I’ve never talked to any of the people involved to personally assess their credibility, and I have no means or opportunity to investigate the alleged background facts to | Read More »
Voxsplaining the Pope
I’m a Catholic and have to admit that I’m not sending Pope Francis a Christmas card. I think he’s suffering from the effects of going from, to mix metaphors, a big fish in a small pond (Argentina? Really?) to a little meatball in a big plate of spaghetti. His statements are confusing the faithful and encouraging the enemies of faith, like, for instance, what your | Read More »
Shut Up About Obama’s Amnesty Plan Unless You Do This One Thing
You have given up your right to complain about Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. Just shut up. Stop complaining. You know why? Because you did not do the one thing that could stop it. You did not call your congressman despite me making it very easy for you to do so. All you had to do was click here. I’m in Washington, D.C. right now. Last | Read More »
Would You Please Click Here to Order John Boehner Some New Balls?
I guess Barack Obama took John Boehner’s balls because Boehner is playing with the President’s balls instead of his own. That’s sad. I mean, think about this. For the last three months, the GOP actively campaigned against Barack Obama’s planned amnesty action while the Democrats attacked the GOP for a government shut down. You could be forgiven for thinking the GOP just got its ass | Read More »
Tech at Night: Here they come, disempowering ordinary folks from new technologies
I called it, I called it, I called it. When I pointed out that proposed regulations of drones were being done purely to keep ordinary folks from being empowered, I got a lot of flak for it. I got told no, we needed big government because drones aren’t safe. Every argument the gun grabbers use, were being used to defend the drone grabbers. Now they’ve | Read More »
Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Says His Preferred Method of Stopping Obama is to Let John McCain Do It
Now this is just pathetic. Some of you turned Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 81% into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you. Bend over America. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 81% is | Read More »
Chuck Hagel and Ashton Carter: profiles in irrelevancy
Obama, having finished trolling conservatives with a rumor he was going to appoint Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson as Secretary of Defense, is almost certainly going to nominate Ashton Carter to that position. (This is not to be confused with Ashton Kutcher who was offered the job but decided it would take away from quality time with Mila Kunis.) The country has done much | Read More »
BREAKING: NYPD Officer who Killed Eric Garner NOT Indicted
Forget Ferguson for just a minute. Everyone has already made up their minds about what has happened to an extent that further discussion about the issues raised by the interaction between Wilson and Brown have been obscured by the disputes about the facts of the particular case. As I said yesterday, it sure would have been nice if we had video of the incident, but | Read More »
It isn’t rape when Democrats do it
Yesterday a former senior Democrat staffer (he worked for Joe Lieberman and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in the Senate and Herb Kohl, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) 20%, and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) 18% in the House) plead guilty in DC Superior Court to third-degree sexual abuse, two misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and one count | Read More »
On the budget, John Boehner must learn from Brian Mulroney
It appears likely that John Boehner will cave on the budget, funding the President’s executive orders on illegal immigration through March, and funding the whole rest of the government (including Obamacare) at our current unsustainable deficits through September, 9 months into the new Republican Congress. He’ll say he had no choice, but we know better.
