Is the State Department Abandoning an American Toddler Imprisoned in Sudan?
Martin Wani, a 20-month-old American boy, is suffering in prison as his mother, Meriam Ibrahim, is shackled on death row in Sudan because she is a Christian.
Martin is a U.S. citizen, but the U.S. State Department refuses to even acknowledge this fact. It’s an unbelievable outrage on top of an already devastating situation.

Chamber of Commerce and Obama agree cheap foreign labor is a great idea
If you have any doubts about the reason behind the push for “comprehensive immigration reform” just look at who is pushing it. Anytime the Chamber of Commerce and the Democrat party team up the American consumer and taxpayer had better hang onto their wallets. US Chamber of Commerce president Thomas Donohue made immigration a focus last week when he issued what was essentially an ultimatum | Read More »
A Personal Note on Ken Buck
Recently I had the pleasure of working for Ken Buck on his Senate run, before he decided to run for Colorado’s CD-4. When I first met Ken, well before I worked for him, he was in the middle of his fight against cancer. He was thin, had a shaved head, and was wearing a black suit with a black tie. We spoke briefly and I | Read More »
If You Like the Political System You Can Keep it
The current debate within the Republican Party boils down to one question: is politics a means for promoting liberty and economic growth through the confines of the U.S. Constitution or is it an end to itself? Democrats don’t have to answer this question because their policies of creating dependency, paying off special interests, and class warfare also benefit their individual members politically and help cement | Read More »
Jay Carney lies about the Veterans Affairs scandal
Jay Carney’s smarmy mendacity is wearing on the White House press corps to the degree that one or two of them are threatening to commit journalism instead of staying in the stenographer’s pool. Via ABC’s Jon Karl, White House Distorts American Legion Position on Veterans Controversy: At the White House briefing today, Press Secretary Jay Carney repeatedly suggested the American Legion had praised the | Read More »
From the Mail Bag: Juris Doctorate Edition
Hahahahahahaha. As a lawyer, or at least as a recovering one, putting “JD” next to your name is probably the most ridiculous thing a person can do. I don’t even know people who do “Esq.” anymore for the most part, but “JD”? Really? Oh, and Streiff is getting a promotion for his excellent ability to rid us of high in the saddle JD’s. From: Adam | Read More »
Kingston, Hice, and Loudermilk
I had hoped that Karen Handel would be able to get into the runoff for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. She is a dear friend and was a great candidate. Though underfunded, she tirelessly built momentum in the final few weeks of the campaign. But Phil Gingrey was able to get enough support out of the metro-Atlanta portion of his district that it, among other | Read More »
Assorted Notes on Last Night’s Elections
- Kentucky: Obviously, the headline of the night was McConnell’s win over Bevin 60%-36%, which was in line with recent polling. There is a lot to say about this race and the broader implications, but it’s worth pointing out that ultimately there were a lot of unhappy people in the state, despite the fact that McConnell is the party leader and wields so much power. | Read More »
McConnell for Senate
I genuinely like and rooted for Matt Bevin. But his campaign made an early mistake that got amplified through the course of the campaign. He needed to give the reason “why him” instead of “why not McConnell.” Instead, he got beaten in the definition game, outspent, and overrun. Matt Bevin will not be the Republican nominee in Kentucky. As much as I wish he would | Read More »
Obama poised to allow illegal aliens to enlist in the Armed Forces
Last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced he would not allow the ENLIST Act of California Republican Jeff Denham to be voted on. This was the culmination of an intense campaign by Heritage Action and the Madison Project to stop this ill considered bill. Mr. Denham is, apparently, one of those Chamber of Commerce Republicans who are committed to “doing something” on immigration no matter how dumb “something” | Read More »
Republican Tom MacArthur Uses Lawfare Against Steve Lonegan
Tom MacArthur is running against Steve Lonegan in the 3rd Congressional District in New Jersey. According to my friend Charles Johnson, MacArthur is suing Steve Lonegan, Lonegan’s treasurer, secretary, campaign manager, consultants, researcher, Charles himself — everyone associated with Lonegan’s campaign. Why? It has to do with the Lonegan campaign distributing this news article. According to the Daily Mail: Tom MacArthur ran York Risk Services | Read More »
Tech at Night: Democrats use AT&T and DirectTV to distract from needed FCC Net Neutrality oversight
So even as Democrats try to distract from critical oversight issues by making angry noises about AT&T and DirecTV, Republicans aren’t taking the bait and instead are applying proper oversight to the FCC. Because you see, while the radicals make false anti-”fast lane” arguments for their Title II Reclassification alternative, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Zombie Net Neutrality is still a power grab. It’s a power grab that the Democrat-run press is colluding to allow, buddy-buddy with pro-Net Neutrality corporate lobbyists such as Google’s.

Losing Oregon: Does the NRSC Vet Its Candidates?
I think the NRSC would much prefer beating up conservatives in 2014 than win the Senate. The NRSC has spent so much time and money attacking conservatives and running smear and whisper campaigns about them, we now have another candidate they did not vet. We have lost Oregon with Monica Wehby. She seemed to be a good candidate with a great ad that neutralized her | Read More »
Center For American Progress demands Sustainable Racism in education
Over the weekend we posted about the effort of Democrat elites to achieve Sustainable Racism. This would enable race baiting and racial animosity to be preserved as a governmental goal and a lucrative career path. As this year is the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court decision that outlawed racial segregation in schools based on the “separate but equal” doctrine | Read More »
