David Plouffe Accuses A ‘Delusional Minority’ Of Wanting To Hold Him Accountable
As the investigation into what happened at our Benghazi consulate and the actions of the administration following its destruction gathers steam Obama’s minions are trying to delegitimize any questions on the subject. This Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” the weirdly effeminate David Plouffe labeled anyone concerned about the obvious pattern of lies and obfuscation by the Obama regime as “delusional.” There was “no conspiracy” behind | Read More »

Gestational Surrogacy: Women For Lease, Children For Sale
The pro-life cause may have risen in direct response to the atrocity of medical abortion but it quickly embraced the cause of euthanasia and death via medical neglect. The next frontier of the movement should be a coordinated opposition to the idea of “gestational surrogacy,” or, in lay terms, hiring a woman you don’t really know to produce a baby for you. For a | Read More »
Move Connecticut Right
In Connecticut, in order to win the Lieutenant Governor nomination, a candidate has to make it out of the party convention with at least 15% of the vote. Then, the candidate has to win a primary. Currently, there are three candidates in contention for the Lieutenant Governor nomination heading into the convention, which will take place on May 17: Penny Bacchiochi, Heather Somers and David | Read More »
FCC Incentive Auction Plan Won’t Benefit Rural America
The FCC is set to vote later this month on rules for the incentive auction of spectrum licenses in the broadcast television band. These licenses would ordinarily be won by the highest bidders, but not in this auction. The FCC plans to ensure that Sprint and T-Mobile win licenses in the incentive auction even if they aren’t willing to pay the highest price, because it | Read More »
The Republican Establishment Would Rather Lose Nebraska Than Support Conservatives
The Republican Establishment always says conservative purists would rather lose than compromise. But the opposite is playing out in Nebraska. The moment Ben Sasse got endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Mitch McConnell went all in for Shane Osborn. Well, Osborn is now toast. He has extremely high negatives, extreme negative poll numbers, and outside groups have just finished him off with an ad blasting | Read More »
Does Tom Cotton Want Democrats to Win?
Some inquiring media needs to ask Tom Cotton this question. With Shane Osborn out of the running, Sid Dinsdale trailing, and Ben Sasse in the lead in Nebraska with little time left, Tom Cotton’s campaign manager is running an ad campaign against Ben Sasse. Cotton is, himself, running for the Republican nomination for the Senate in Arkansas. Sasse is supporting by conservatives as diverse as | Read More »

May 10th marks the one year anniversary of the admission that the Obama Administration’s IRS was responsible for targeting conservative Americans.

Matt Yglesias’ Utterly Banal and Misleading Economic ‘Insight’
Matt Yglesias, boy genius and resident economics expert at Ezra Klein’s Vox.com, recently posted the following banality under the title “The Private Sector is Up, the Public Sector is Down”. Matt’s analysis: The recession hit the private sector faster and harder, but the private sector’s already made back all its losses. The government, by contrast, has been really slumping. ProTip: Whenever Matt makes a pronouncement | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale Won’t Compromise On Abortion. He’ll Just Set the Pro-Life Cause Aside.
When I called Sid Dinsdale “Planned Parenthood’s Republican,” he got all upset. In fact, he released a statement saying, in part “I would never compromise on abortion and to insinuate otherwise, is nonsense.” Really? Really? This is the man who demands we call him a “life long Republican,” despite years of funding Democrats, including one guy who wanted to run against Republican Mike Johanns. This | Read More »
Tech at Night: Zombie Net Neutrality just won’t die.
Even though repeated losses in court are making the Net Neutrality folks have to compromise with reality, the fact is they’re still freaking out about the ability to charge more for better service, which is a good thing to have. The facts are though that we don’t need new laws, and the laws they do want would just pick winners and losers, which is why Netflix is pushing so hard. If the roles are reversed they’d be screaming that I was being paid by Netflix.

Would You Let the IRS Do Your Taxes for You?
Why not let the IRS do our taxes for us?
Liberal wunderkind Ezra Klein (formerly of the Washington Post and now of Vox.com) was pushing this not-so-new idea a few weeks ago. It may just be the worst idea I’ve ever heard.

Thus Ends the Campaign of Shane Osborn
The 60 Plus Association has decided to get into Nebraska. One of the sub-surface issues in the race is Shane Osborn’s military record. Osborn, you may recall, piloted the plane the Chinese forced out of the air shortly after George W. Bush became President. What you may not know is the rest of the story. Osborn associates have been circulating a fabricated memo designed to | Read More »
