Tech at Night: This DC establishment leader talks tough on ‘fast lanes’ but keeps on using them herself
Right now there’s a huge astroturf campaign going on, spamblasting fake messages to the FCC, pretending that there’s this giant grassroots army of opposition to the idea that people or businesses should be able to pay ISPs for faster service. This is what they’re calling “fast lanes” and the progressives are having a fit.

The GOP’s Missing Electoral Link
Paul Ryan is a smart man, and probably represents the mainstream thinking of the Republican Party, though like every ambitious politician he likes to position himself as a critic of the crowd. But In a recent interview with Matthew Continetti Ryan started out well by complaining about the GOP consultant class. “The consultant class always says play it safe, choose a risk-averse strategy. I don’t | Read More »

Obama’s to “start going on some offense” with ISIS
Wednesday Obama is supposed to address the nation on his plan for combating ISIS. The signs are not hopeful: President Barack Obama will address the country Wednesday to explain to the nation “what our game plan is going forward” in the fight against ISIS. In an interview that aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama expressed confidence that the United States, with help from | Read More »
The Blue States’ Economic Paradox
Blue states have a problem. Although there are some recently notable exceptions, most vehemently oppose cutting taxes, favoring instead a tax-and-spend or top-down redistribution approach. They require high taxes to finance the pet projects they believe the market is too short-sighted to support, like Solyndra. At the same time, however, these big government states try to pursue goals of economic growth, even if they believe | Read More »
Ray Rice, Abortion, and Being Led About by the Viscera
The gossip web rag TMZ released video this morning of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the elevator of the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. I’m not going to embed the video in this post; if you are curious enough to actually see it you can Google it and see several versions of it that are variously enhanced. It appears to Palmer and | Read More »
Dan Bongino’s campaign (MD-06) ignored by the media
I rarely write about local issues but this particular one has a resonance beyond the immediate area. By way of background, I live in Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District which is one of the few sane places in that godforsaken socialist republic. Historically, Maryland Six had been a Republican district represented since the time of Augustus Caesar by Roscoe Bartlett. After the 2010 Census, Maryland Six | Read More »
Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN): loves fundraisers, shrugs off veterans.

Rotherham and the failure of multiculturalism
The news from Rotherham, UK, has been chilling. Gang rape of vulnerable teens and pre-teens was endemic: No one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1400 children were sexually exploited over the full Inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013. In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation | Read More »
Tom Udall vs. The First Amendment
Pretend moderate Tom* Udall (D-NM) has teamed up with avowed socialist Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT) to pen a lengthy, meandering, hypocritical, and logically challenged piece in Politico describing a constitutional amendment they have submitted that is designed to ensure that only Democrats and socialists can participate fully in the Democratic process. But today, those improvements are in serious jeopardy. The Supreme Court struck down a major | Read More »
Guess who predicted the anti-Christian discrimination at Vanderbilt and Cal State?
A couple of weeks ago, an article appeared in Christianity Today which re-ignited the interest in the Vanderbilt University policy change in 2011 which removed official student group standing from Christian campus organizations such as the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF)*. The piece was written by a student leader, Tish Harrison Warren, who described how she is apparently “the wrong kind of Christian”. This is how | Read More »
The Competitive Disadvantage of Principle
Filling in for Rush Limbaugh last week, I had a number of calls from angry members of the middle class who feel they cannot get ahead because the government stands in their way. It reminded me of something I wrote back in 2012, which I think still stands the test of time. There is a growing frustrating within the middle class that Washington is subsidizing | Read More »
Export-Import Bank fatcats fly first class on taxpayer money. YOUR money.
The Hill dryly noted that “[m]uch of the recent travel appears designed to build public support for the bank, which is in danger of seeing its charter lapse.”
