Culture Call: Help the Detroit Project
Earlier this year saw the release of my film, Bankrupt: How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit. It was a few months of production but was really years in the making. As a victim of the 2008 recession, I had lost everything financially speaking on the same timeline that GM & Chrysler had seen billions of dollars go towards bailing them out. As my own | Read More »
GOP joins Democrats in defending Obama’s amnesty executive order
A clear majority of the GOP caucus made itself clear. Not only do they not object to Obama’s use of executive orders to implement amnesty, they are furious at being exposed for the rank hypocrites that they are. This is the story. A gutless House agreed to fund Obama’s amnesty program. They didn’t have to, they chose to. All the bull**** about the US Citizenship | Read More »
White potatoes finally legal for WIC purchase
In the George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, more familiar to most as the Broadway play and Hollywood movie “My Fair Lady,” the protagonist, Henry Higgins takes in an underclass Cockney girl and attempts to change her into a proper British lady. The CRomnibus bill provided interesting insight into how government entitlement programs attempt to play the role of Henry Higgins. They are less concerned with providing | Read More »
God Bless Dick Cheney
Democrats who spent a number of years being advised of what the CIA was doing to extract information from enemy terrorists released a report claiming we were torturing bad guys. Further, they claimed that we were gaining no valuable information from that torture. Individuals in the intelligence community have pointed out, mostly to deaf ears in the press, that (1) these same Democrats were well | Read More »
CRomnibus passes because of GOP support
Jesus wept. The debate exposed divisions within the Democratic and Republican caucuses on both sides of the Capitol and sets the stage for what could be a year of internecine squabbling in 2015. Twenty-one Senate Democrats voted against the bill while 24 Republicans voted for it, including every member of the Senate GOP leadership. The next time anyone tells you the GOP Senate leadership opposes | Read More »
Senate GOP Leaders and Their Pro-Amnesty Pundit Friends Find Harry Reid’s S**t Sandwich Quite Tasty
“A Senate source outside the Cruz and Lee offices with direct knowledge of the behind the scenes conversations tells me, ‘GOP leadership knew Reid was going to file cloture on up to 20 controversial nominations yesterday afternoon before they tried to move CROmnibus votes to monday.’”The level of butt hurt among pro-amnesty Republicans is staggering. They are savaging [mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ | Read More »
The Left’s plan to retake state legislatures through targeted character assassination.
(H/T: Instapundit) There are several amusing things about this article from the Washington Examiner on the topic of what the Left hopes to do towards state legislatures in the upcoming election cycle: “We’re working with David Brock and Media Matters and American Bridge who have trackers that we can send out to monitor the debate on some bills that you all might be running,” Nick Rathod, | Read More »
Dead donor rule for organ transplants is being challenged
Back in 1995, Pope Saint John Paul II took note of a tragic flaw and tendency in the modern culture of developed nations in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (Latin: “The Gospel of Life”): Here we are faced with one of the more alarming symptoms of the “culture of death”, which is advancing above all in prosperous societies, marked by an attitude of excessive preoccupation with efficiency | Read More »
David Fin Ties Helps Veterans
This is your non-partisan, non-political post of the day. For the last month or so, after noticing someone I follow on Instagram promoting David Fin’s ties, I started following David Fin on Instagram. I am a tie snob. I have tons of ties. I used to need them for work when I was a lawyer. Now I need them for when I am on TV | Read More »
Everybody Counts or Nobody Counts: #AllLivesMatter
She Shouldn’t Have Apologized As a fan of Noir Fiction Novels, I’ve read through better than 2/3s of Michael Connelly’s series featuring Detective Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch. Bosch was a relentless investigator and cleared a prodigious number of cases. He also had this unfortunate yet endearing habit of sticking his foot in his mouth and failing to toe the PC line at | Read More »
Tech at Night: Weekend Update
They say that after a fire in the US Embassy in Moscow during the Cold War, the Soviets loaded the whole building with bugs and the whole place was insecure after that. In that spirit, it makes a lot of sense that Google is getting out of Russia. It’s just not safe.
Actually, it’s the *conservatives* who can make better plays to the middle in 2016.
Allahpundit is raising an excellent point, here: Why would a center-right voter prefer Jeb Bush to Scott Walker? We all do understand, I hope, that Walker will be running basically as a centrist, yes? …I think he’s going to run as a similar sort of pragmatist as Bush — lots of talk about jobs and education, squishy on immigration, socially conservative but low key about | Read More »
