Mainstream Media “Fall Over Each Other to Support” Hamas Terrorist Propaganda
It has been well documented that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has been intentionally firing thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians while using Palestinian civilians as human shields, basing their attacks in hospitals, and hiding their rockets in schools.
Despite these grave war crimes and violation of any semblance of humanity, the mainstream media has bought into Hamas’s propaganda campaign. The terrorists want to be viewed as the victims, and somehow the media is buying into that narrative hook line and sinker.

Corruption at Export-Import Bank alleged
There are days when it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed. This is one of those for the Export-Import Bank. The Bank is already in jeopardy of seeing its charter expire in September because of its record of corporate welfare, the top 10 clients of the Bank receive 93% of all the money it dishes out, and the incoming House majority leader has | Read More »
The Ridiculous Handwringing of the Overthinking GOP
Byron York tells us the GOP is worried they may get their strategy wrong in 2014. Back in 1998, you see, they made it about Bill Clinton and got spanked. They expected to pick up seats, but they lost seats. But in this entire piece from Byron, there is one word missing — “Gallup”. Republicans in 1998 faced an incumbent President with popularity above 60% | Read More »

The Moronic “Inversions” Drumbeat Grows Louder
Somewhere in the bowels of the festering Democrat political machine, some focus group automaton has decided that “closing the inversions tax loophole” is a message that can save Democrats from destruction in 2014. By way of background, America has an astronomically high corporate taxation rate compared to the rest of the world; so what some American companies are doing is merging with overseas companies and | Read More »
Michelle Nunn: A Consultant’s Golem Coming for the Jews
A golem is a being of inanimate material magically given anthropomorphic abilities. Back when I was a political consultant I would tell candidates that they were lumps of clay to be molded. In a memo discovered by National Review, Michelle Nunn has all the makings of not being her own woman, but rather being a consultant’s golem. Not only a golem, but one whose organization | Read More »
Tech at Night: Just what are Snowden and Putin up to?
Last time in Tech at Night I linked to stories about Edward Snowden and Russia in suspicious and/or hostile positions with respect to the Online Privacy crowd that celebrates Snowden.
The hits just keep on coming though, so at this point we have to ask: Just what are Snowden and his paymaster Putin up to?

In which we revisit Rathergate, and the bad movie about to be made of it.
Hey, remember that stupid, incredibly ham-handed, and only-an-drooling-idiot-would-fall-for-it Rathergate scandal?

US Chamber of Commerce is not winning
The US Chamber of Commerce has for years viewed the GOP as its personal political party. Sure they supported the now-extinct “Blue Dog Democrats” but when most of them disappeared in the maelstrom of 2010 they were left with GOP candidates and communists. Unfortunately for the Chamber, the GOP caucus has been getting progressively more conservative each year. And not merely conservative but populist. This | Read More »
Michelle Nunn (D-GASen Candidate) Wants Jewish Donors, Gives to Hamas
Eliana Johnson broke news today with the release of a confidential campaign plan from Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. The campaign plan details the demographic models, special interest groups, donor targets, and the assumption in the campaign plan that Nunn will have a compliant media. This is what Johnson focused on in much of her post. For me, the real news comes in the | Read More »
Will the Chamber of Commerce Back Democrat Mary Landrieu?
Avowed enemy of conservatives and champion of corporate welfare the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is reportedly contemplating backing Democrat Mary Landrieu over Bill Cassidy in the LA Senate race. Per the Hill, New York Times columnist Joe Nocera may have inadvertently leaked plans on the part of the Chamber to back Landrieu this November. Per other reports on Twitter, the Chamber is still staying mum | Read More »
The Democrats Have Abandoned Populism
Salon justifiably takes a lot of flack around these parts for the many insane things they print, but this this piece by Bill Curry is worth a read as a damning indictment of the Democrats’ wholesale abandonment of populism in favor big business corporate donations. Some of Curry’s piece is rank with revisionist history that should be expected from a lifetime partisan Democrat but it | Read More »
Obama requests Iraq AUMF be repealed
The situation in Iraq grows more perilous by the day. The nation seems of the verge of dissolving into now only warring ethnic enclaves but warring ethnic enclave engaged in their own civil war. Barack Obama and his administration has stood idly by as the situation has spiraled out of control and any gains made during the Iraq War have been erased. Yet, on Friday | Read More »
Maliciousness. Not Incompetence.
For the longest time I have chosen to chalk our President’s stumbles, bumbles, and disasters up to incompetence. He is in over his head. He is inexperienced. He is out of his league. It is hard to accept otherwise. But it is clearer and clearer that is not true. It is clear that President Obama’s disastrous policies are premised not in incompetence, but in maliciousness. | Read More »
Libya Implodes While the Press Fiddles
It seems like almost forever in one sense since the media were treating American citizens to literally daily updates with the number of people killed in terrorist attacks in Iraq. Every IED explosion, every infrastructure failure, every rise in terrorist activity was the subject of a major feature splash. During the course of the 2008 election, the Republican candidates were repeatedly beaten about the head | Read More »
