Mark Udall’s Very Bad Week: Colorado Senate Moved to Toss Up
This week has had a lot of bad news for the campaign of incumbent Colorado Senator, Democrat, strong Obamacare proponent, environmental enthusiast, Mark Udall. Whether it was news about his PAC giving his campaign money, a CNN analyst predicting his loss, new polling showing the race essentially tied and multiple vulnerabilities for Udall, or the change in the race ranking to toss-up, none of it was good news for the embattled Outward Bound Senator.

Islamic Cleric Offended By The Mention Of Islam At 9/11 Memorial
We live in strange times. We are at a point where three lesbians can marry. We have articles in the New York Times about the difficulties homosexual couples find in conceiving children (apparently biology is no longer taught in our schools). And we have people objecting to the mention of Islam in a film about 9/11 shown at the September 11 Memorial. “The screening of | Read More »
What’s The Liberal Equivalent Of Climate Denial?
Sometimes something comes along that is so worthwhile that it has to be shared. This is one of those occasions. One of RedState’s founders, Ben Domenech, edits and publishes a daily newsletter called The Transom. If you don’t get it, you should. About 70% of my posts are inspired, directly on indirectly, from what I read there. Not only does Ben aggregate and synopsize an | Read More »
Tonight in Iowa
Tonight in Iowa, I’m honored to be the moderator of the Iowa Family Leader’s U.S. Senate Family Forum. The Family Leader has invited all the U.S. Senate candidates in Iowa to participate. Candidates Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst, Mark Jacobs, Matt Whitaker have all chosen to participate in the event.

Globalism, Abortion and A Waste-Burning Facility in Oregon.
Well, My Constant Readers, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news, according to B.C. Health Ministry is that bio-medical waste is disposed of through appropriate contracted providers. Furthermore, they follow all health and safety protocols and government regulations. The bad news is that this conscientious crossing of “i”s and dotting of “t”s in no way prevents the shipment of the | Read More »

Mark Pryor dismisses Tom Cotton’s military service as “entitlement”
In a world where the United States military has become a politically correct social experiment; where military leaders are suspended for being insensitive; where openly homosexual troops perform in drag and officers are forced to embrace it or resign; and where a male soldier convicted of selling military secrets can force the military to recognize and accommodate his claim that he is a woman, it | Read More »
Bentley Rayburn Defends Religious Freedom For The Military
As Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput remarked in his Lenten reflection a couple of years ago: Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will | Read More »

Karen Handel for Senate
I have not wanted to take a position on the Georgia Senate race. I have several friends running. I have maintained that my heart is with Paul Broun and my head is with Karen Handel. If I could will someone into the Senate, it’d be Congressman Paul Broun. He’s a terrific and profoundly decent person. But in the end my head has won out for | Read More »
Thomas Piketty, Wealth Inequality and Cargo Cult Economics
Economics is much more akin climatology than to real science. It is larded with theories that are simply not falsifiable, it relies on complex models that can work backwards from a known point but are unable to predict an outcome, and adherence to fads and a good publicist are more important to success than actually being accurate. None of this is to say economics is | Read More »

The Simple Truth of Tax Policy
One of the ephemeral trends in Washington policy circles these days is for members of Congress to craft their own draft plans for tax reforms in anticipation of a wholesale reform effort in the coming years. It’s good that members are discussing reforming our antiquated and anti-growth tax code. However, conservative members must not fall into the trap of adopting some anti-conservative premises when crafting | Read More »
Vincent Sheheen: The Molester’s Lawyer
Isiah Outten supplied drugs and beer to two underage girls. He engaged in sexual acts with one of the girls. For this he was arrested, pled guilty, and was sentenced to ten years in prison. Mr. Outten hired Vincent Sheheen, who negotiated down Outten’s term to 38 days. Outten was arrested 13 more times, including twice for being in hotel rooms with alcohol and underage | Read More »
