Is There a Deal Between Adelson and Reid to Ban Online Gaming?

Democrats’ vaunted social media team embarrasses its own party, again.
I thank God every day that I don’t have to produce this kind of masturbatory fodder for my political party. ‘Ethnic cleansing.’ Ye gods and little fishes…
Republicans Will Vote to Fund President Obama’s Amnesty. Then Try to Take It All Back.
You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him. That is happening again. This time | Read More »
Jim Webb throws his hat in the 2016 ring
Virginia Democrat and former senator Jim Webb has created an exploratory committee as the first stage in a 2016 presidential run.

Asian students sue Harvard for discrimination
In the 1920s many Ivy League schools faced a conundrum. Their admissions policy was based on how an applicant placed on an admissions test. If you scored high enough, you were admitted. Under that system the dimwitted scions of major donors were being turned away in favor of *gasp, horror* the sons of Jewish immigrants. According to Jerome Karabel in The Chosen: The Hidden History of Admission | Read More »
Will Lavender Nazis Kill a Reality Show?
The one thing that we’ve learned in the ongoing war over homosexual marriage is that homosexuals are probably the most vicious and vindictive interest group in the nation. They are not content with mere equality but rather are obsessed with demanding that their particular brand of sexual deviance is not merely accepted but celebrated as something other that what it is. Writing in “One Nation, | Read More »
Last night I took a lot of calls from angry listeners who were not just angry at the President, but at the GOP for not fighting to stop him.
Bernie Sanders – The Purest Leftist Possible in 2016.
So Diogenes wandered the City of Demville with his lamp. His shoulders sagged, his expression grew hang-dog. He searched in vain for one honest man other than Jonathan Gruber. Ah, but his eyes lit up and his frown turned around. There was one man….one honest man on the American Left. That one last defender of the faith was, alas, not a registered Democrat. He is | Read More »

Republicans Will Not Block Barack Obama (Because They Want the Same Thing)
In 2011, Barack Obama said he did not have the constitutional authority to do what he is going to announce today. In fact, on March 28, 2011, Barack Obama said “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Yeah, still more on Title II Net Neutrality extremism
Image credit to Mike Wendy at Media Freedom. When called Net Neutrality the Obamacare of the Internet, the left squawked, but it’s true. Net Neutrality, including via the Title II Reclassification power grab, is all promises, but will predictably have bad results for all of us. Its so bad even the Reverend Jesse Jackson dislikes it because it will hurt poor minorities.

So That Explains the Buzzfeed Hit
Buzzfeed and much of the rest of the press is covering the bizarre behavior of an Uber executive who wanted to dig up dirt on at least one journalist. I love Uber, but geez they behavior like Nixon runs the joint. My 9 year old and I used Uber all through New York City last week. It was a great experience. In any event, last | Read More »

Via Reuters: President Barack Obama is set on Thursday to outline a controversial plan to relax U.S. immigration policy and grant relief from deportation to as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants in a go-it-alone move that will deepen a partisan divide with Republicans. Sources close to the administration said the rollout would include a televised speech by Obama on Thursday night laying out the | Read More »
Obamacare is About to Bankrupt a Whole Bunch of Small Businesses
The crushing costs of compliance with the regulatory burdens of Obamacare have already been well documented, especially as they pertain to small businesses. But as small businesses prepare their corporate tax returns next year, many accountants are warning that, based on Department of Labor guidelines issued after the election, countless small businesses are about to be hit with a huge tax penalty that they simply | Read More »
