E-mailgate is Dead! Long live E-mailgate!
David Brock penned a brief column over at USA Today that is about as David Brock as it gets. If anyone was wondering why the Republicans have stoked this e-mail controversy, you now have your answer: the investigation into the Benghazi tragedy is all but dead and this is a desperate gambit to keep it alive in the 2016 elections. Millions of taxpayer dollars have | Read More »
On Conservatives and Losing
Sarah Mimms has an interesting piece at National Journal regarding the conservative losing streak in the House and Senate. It is intended, I guess, to cast a ray of hope for alternate tactics that conservative members of Congress can use to get around the blocking efforts of leadership, and Mimms makes several good points. For example: Conservatives came to Washington labeling President Obama as enemy | Read More »
Ten Dollars in Cuts for One Dollar in Tax Increases
During the 2012 debates, Republicans were asked a simple question: would they accept a dollar in tax increases for ten dollars in spending cuts? A friend asked them that question. It was not meant as a bullcrap question, but it is. The reason is because it generates a sound bite that advances a narrative that leaves out a whole lot of history. As could easily | Read More »
Cobain is Dead, The 90’s Are Gone, Yet Hillary Rodham Clinton Still Wallows in the Grunge
As Cute As Always I had trouble selecting the most overdone and obnoxious Grunge track to post in honor of our nation’s malarial outbreak of Slime-Ball Clinton 90’s Nostalgia. Somewhere Vince Foster’s suffering poltergeist is wailing. “No! Not Soundgarden again!” The suppurating pustule of sleaze and dishonest ambition that is the Clinton Family erupted forth with the putrescent pestilent pasty puss | Read More »
Prostitutes and Their Johns
State Senator Hunter Hill proposed legislation, Senate Bill 63 (“SB63″) to bring some semblance of common sense to the State of Georgia. Georgia is one of five states that prohibits beer brewers from selling their beer directly to the public. Wineries can, but breweries cannot. The issue is not about beer. It is not about whether or not you like beer. It is about whores | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Patent fight is on (with bonus Logan Act “violation”)
Looks like we have the same problem going on with patents we’ve had with so many other legislative issues over the years. There’s a kernel of a good idea (go after patent trolls), but then the lobbyists all pile on, and we get a monster of Comprehensive Patent Reform. Which works about as well as comprehensive immigration reform or omnibus budgeting. ACU’s against it, economists | Read More »
A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
Human Trafficking vs. Taxpayer-Funded Abortion
The Democrats are really working hard to remain genuinely awful, and a bill that fights human trafficking is their latest attempt to do so. Senate Democrats are threatening to pull their support from a bipartisan anti-trafficking bill set for Senate action this week. They are infuriated over an abortion-related provision that Democrats say was slipped in without their knowledge. The legislation passed the Senate Judiciary | Read More »
Hey President Obama: Do Something About It
As it happens, I tend to agree that members of the opposition party in Congress should not send letters to foreign governments that the President is negotiating with in order to undercut his negotiating position. I think the proper thing to do in case the opposition party feels that they will not ratify an agreement the President might make is for them to send a | Read More »
Hillary Clinton to America: Bite me!
It wasn’t political theater on the scale of Andrew Breitbart hijacking Anthony Weiner’s press conference but it verged on epic in a Buddhist-monk-self-immolating type of way. Hillary Clinton used the occasion of her appearance at the UN on behalf of the ongoing RICO violation and money laundering operation known as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation to address the building avalanche of questions around | Read More »
My friend Dave refers to Hillary Clinton as America’s ex-wife. Her press conference yesterday proved him right. The dirty little secret of the Clinton regime is that the press adored Bill Clinton. He was a McDonalds eating, womanizing man whore, who could chit chat on anything, tell a joke that’d make you blush, and then get back to work. And the fraternal press corps loved | Read More »
BREAKING: House Democrats Send Letter to U.S. Adversary Pledging Opposition to the President
Coming on the heels of the revelation that 47 Republican Senators sent a letter to Iran undermining President Obama’s ambitions in the country, I can now report to you that a number of Democrats, including the former Speaker, have engaged in the same behavior. They sent a letter to one of our clear adversaries and declared their opposition to the President’s foreign policy in the | Read More »
