Yes, You Should Support Rob Maness for US Senate
Look at how the NRSC races have gone. We may lose Kansas because the NRSC did not vet their candidate there. We may very well lose North Carolina too. But the NRSC told us their candidate there was the best candidate. Now, in Louisiana, the NRSC is telling us not to support Rob Maness for the Senate. “Trust us,” they tell us. Look at their | Read More »
Not one cent more. The @NRSC is about to reap what it has sown
Politico is reporting that former candidate for the US Senate from Kansas, Dr. Milton Wolf, is in talks with independent candidate Greg Orman: Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen. Pat Roberts in a bitter Republican primary fight, is considering some political payback: Endorsing Kansas independent Greg Orman, sources said Thursday night. But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must | Read More »
Colorado Democrats are Stumbling, Beauprez and Gardner are Reaping the Benefits
Colorado’s incumbent Democrat Senator and Governor have not had a good summer. Both are now down in the polls to their Republican challengers, Gardner and Beauprez. While Governor Hickenlooper once again fumbled the gun issue in a recent debate, Senator Udall decided to speak for the beheaded victims of ISIS, offending many Colorado voters, to whom Udall was forced to apologize. Shortly after these events | Read More »
Seeking Attorney! Startling New Craigslist Ad Surfaces
President Obama is a new kind of President, we’ve been told. His staff is young and inexperienced, his ideas are new and terrible, and his campaign has revolutionized the way politicians reach the lowest common denominator. From Obamacare ads to hashtag activism, this White House uses the cool new way to do everything. It’s all about the internet, because that is young and hip and | Read More »
Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane’s (D) on-again, off-again blame-the-victim tactics in rape lawsuit.
PA AG Kathleen Kane (Democrat) tried to blame a rape victim for being raped, then tried to blame a subordinate for blaming the rape victim. …Charming.

Justice Ginsburg advocates aborting the poor
Yesterday I posted on a recent essay by Obamacare architect, Ezekiel Emanuel, who claimed that he only intended to live until he was 75. He made a point of saying that he didn’t wish to inflict his vision on anyone else, but the metrics he laid out for continuing life are sadly widespread in a medical profession that has ceased to see its role as | Read More »
First Infantry Division Headquarters ordered to Iraq
This is a follow up to my post yesterday. Via the Army Times: The 1st Infantry Division headquarters will deploy to Iraq in the coming weeks as the U.S. expands its war against the Islamic State, officials announced Thursday. The Big Red One, of Fort Riley, Kansas, will be the first division headquarters to go to Iraq since the U.S. withdrawal in 2011. About 500 | Read More »
Combat pay authorized for US advisors in Iraq; combat operations on case-by-case basis.
Back in June, when the potential October Surprise of military action against ISIS was only a dim gleam in Obama’s eye, some 300 US advisors were deployed to Iraq. What was notable about this deployment was that they were not authorized combat pay. As I noted at the time: It is difficult to see how we help Iraqis “take the fight to the terrorists” if | Read More »
WaPo on Hillary: This “Middle East” thing isn’t looking good
It’s not exactly a story you’d see out of a media that seems to be going all-in for Hillary otherwise, but it’s one I’d gladly accept: “I support what they are doing,” Clinton said in the interview Wednesday, referring to her former colleagues in the Obama administration. “I personally believe the way they have thought this through and planned it and limited our involvement, avoids | Read More »
Clearest Sign Yet the GOP Will Take the Senate: Eric Holder to Resign
Eric Holder is going to resign his position as Attorney General News is just coming across the wire. Holder has been Obama’s friend and companion for six years. He has relentlessly screwed up most everything he has touched. He has overseen a Department of Justice that has been complicit in killing American border patrol agents and covering up abusive government. In the vernacular of the | Read More »
The French Fight the War of Words Right: Call ISIS “Daesh”
I need not elaborate on the ridicule that the American public heaped upon President Obama for describing the Islamic State as “un-Islamic”, and much as I agree with said ridicule, I can understand the logic of the decision. After all, one tactic for fighting your enemies is to call the not the true representatives of their ideology, country, religion, and so on. Still, I am | Read More »
Radical Cleric Anjem Choudary Allegedly Netted in Terrorism Arrest
This should not be surprising to anyone who is familiar with Mr. Choudary. You might remember him as the cleric who has made several appearances in American and British media defending various radical Islamist groups. He’s also fine with ISIS’s many atrocities. Indeed, his own students were handing out leaflets at a pro-ISIS protest and he has “no sympathy” for British hostage Alan Henning. A group | Read More »

Wanted: Grown Ups
I was alone among my friends when it came to the ad below. It is called “The Woman Who Made Up Her Mind.” The ad was produced by “Better Together,” the campaign that argued against Scottish independence. The ad features a mother sitting at the kitchen table talking about her worries, her family, and her children’s future. The ad was spoofed, pilloried, and derided around | Read More »
Tech at Night: Harry Reid to push the Sales Tax bait and switch
Harry Reid is going to put a bait and switch on the agenda in the lame duck session. This is important to watch, because it’s a substantial power grab that appeals big government, tax-and-spend Democrats, as well as squishy, cronyist Republicans. That’s exactly the kind of sour grapes coalition that could pass a bad sales tax bill after the November elections.
Watch your wallet.
