Political Wire (.@politicalwire) lies about Ben Carson’s abortion position
I suppose it is a sign that Ben Carson is being taken as serious by the political left and the media which takes its orders from them. Today, Taegan Goddard of Political Wire told a complete lie about Ben Carson. He has a story headlined Carson Would Make Abortion Illegal Nationwide. Ben Carson said he would “love” to see Roe vs. Wade overturned, making abortion | Read More »

Hillary Clinton: From each according to his ability; to each according to his needs
If the Clinton’s did anything at all for American political life it was proving that once you had divested yourself of a sense of shame or any impulse to tell the truth then the world was your oyster. For instance: “There is something wrong when the top 25 hedge fund managers make more than all the kindergarten teachers in America combined.” —Hillary — Hillary Clinton | Read More »

Donald Trump makes fun of Ben Carson for saving lives
They tell me Donald Trump is pro-life. Despite his assertion he’d fund the “good aspects” of Planned Parenthood (even though he of all people should know money is fungible), I’m told this. So imagine my surprise this morning to see that Donald Trump is making fun of Ben Carson for having a career centered on life saving, rather than pure profit.
Donald Trump begins a troll of Ben Carson
All during the 2008 primary season and the 2012 primary and general campaigns Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion was fodder for the left. The silly twit, McKay Coppins, wrote a piece for BuzzFeed titled A Brief Guide To “Mormon Underwear”. The Atlantic promised Mormon Underwear, Revealed. Now Donald Trump has brought up the fact that Dr. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist: He also derided | Read More »

No One Cares About the Sexual Orientation of Athletes Except the Left
As we’re constantly reminded by social justice warriors, it’s 2015. Gender and sexual orientation don’t matter, and it’s highly disrespectful to focus on them. “Stop looking at those things. They just don’t matter. Be progressive and open-minded, fool!” The SJW crowd is filled to the brim with those who claim to look past whether you’re a girl or gay, yet overwhelmingly, they are the ones | Read More »
Did Obama plan to shoot down an Israeli strike against Iran?
Friday’s Wall Street Journal carries an incredible story about how Obama’s dishonesty with a long time ally, Israel, brought about a situation where both sides were spying on each other and the US was actually lying to Israel about the status of negotiations that eventually awarded Iran the right to build a nuclear weapon. Buried in the story is this snippet: The U.S. closely monitored | Read More »
Obama vetoes Defense bill
Showing the leadership and strategic insights that have made him famous, Barack Obama has vetoed the Defense bill. He does that as he alleges we are in a struggle to contain (or in the juvenile jargon of this administration, “degrade and destroy” when the only thing that is being degraded is the United States) ISIS. The reason that Obama is fine with not adequately funding | Read More »
Donald Trump Eaten by Giant African Lion
DES MOINES (AP) – In a shocking and horrifying development, a Donald Trump campaign event in Iowa was interrupted when the Republican front runner was swallowed whole by a giant African lion that had wandered onstage, seemingly out of nowhere. “It was unbelievable,” said Steven Marponi, a Trump supporter who watched the whole grisly scene unfold from his front row seats. “One second Trump was | Read More »

What is Happening to Carly Fiorina?
It feels like we’ve been in this campaign cycle for a while already, does it not? Still, the general election is more than a year away. One thing that has been somewhat consistent is the outsider advantage, which seems to be the flavor of the early 2016 season. Hillary has had to deal with The Bern, and while Sanders is not new to the political | Read More »
