Does Tom Cotton Want Democrats to Win?
Some inquiring media needs to ask Tom Cotton this question. With Shane Osborn out of the running, Sid Dinsdale trailing, and Ben Sasse in the lead in Nebraska with little time left, Tom Cotton’s campaign manager is running an ad campaign against Ben Sasse. Cotton is, himself, running for the Republican nomination for the Senate in Arkansas. Sasse is supporting by conservatives as diverse as | Read More »

Matt Yglesias’ Utterly Banal and Misleading Economic ‘Insight’
Matt Yglesias, boy genius and resident economics expert at Ezra Klein’s Vox.com, recently posted the following banality under the title “The Private Sector is Up, the Public Sector is Down”. Matt’s analysis: The recession hit the private sector faster and harder, but the private sector’s already made back all its losses. The government, by contrast, has been really slumping. ProTip: Whenever Matt makes a pronouncement | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale Won’t Compromise On Abortion. He’ll Just Set the Pro-Life Cause Aside.
When I called Sid Dinsdale “Planned Parenthood’s Republican,” he got all upset. In fact, he released a statement saying, in part “I would never compromise on abortion and to insinuate otherwise, is nonsense.” Really? Really? This is the man who demands we call him a “life long Republican,” despite years of funding Democrats, including one guy who wanted to run against Republican Mike Johanns. This | Read More »
Tech at Night: Zombie Net Neutrality just won’t die.
Even though repeated losses in court are making the Net Neutrality folks have to compromise with reality, the fact is they’re still freaking out about the ability to charge more for better service, which is a good thing to have. The facts are though that we don’t need new laws, and the laws they do want would just pick winners and losers, which is why Netflix is pushing so hard. If the roles are reversed they’d be screaming that I was being paid by Netflix.

Would You Let the IRS Do Your Taxes for You?
Why not let the IRS do our taxes for us?
Liberal wunderkind Ezra Klein (formerly of the Washington Post and now of Vox.com) was pushing this not-so-new idea a few weeks ago. It may just be the worst idea I’ve ever heard.

Thus Ends the Campaign of Shane Osborn
The 60 Plus Association has decided to get into Nebraska. One of the sub-surface issues in the race is Shane Osborn’s military record. Osborn, you may recall, piloted the plane the Chinese forced out of the air shortly after George W. Bush became President. What you may not know is the rest of the story. Osborn associates have been circulating a fabricated memo designed to | Read More »
Nothing Clever about Winning with Lies and Special Interest Riches
Over the past few weeks, political news outlets have been filled with articles beaming about the masterful strategy of the GOP establishment in crushing grassroots challenges. They smugly celebrate the wily tactics of Senator Mitch McConnell, the Chamber of Commerce, and Crossroads in counterattacking the Tea Party. But when you think past the initial headline, you will find that there is nothing special, clever, or | Read More »
Select Committee To Investigate Benghazi Attack Formed
Speaker Boeher has finally tired of being punked by the Obama regime. In an effort to remind them his correct title is “Speaker” and not “bitch,” Boehner has announced the formation of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi fiasco and the subsequent cover-up and multiple perjuries by senior Obama officials. “Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the | Read More »
Senator Mike Lee Takes On Crony Capitalism
Utah Senator Mike Lee has an interesting post at Heritage’s blog, The Foundry. If Republicans want to grow their party into a national majority, we must begin, as Reagan did in 1981, by confronting our present crisis: America’s large and growing Opportunity Deficit, namely, immobility among the poor and insecurity in the middle class. Compounding the shortage of opportunities among the poor and middle class | Read More »
Time for New Leadership
30 years ago, a man ran for the Senate because his opponent kept claiming to be for spending cuts while raising spending. His opponent kept claiming to be a conservative, while letting big government grow, even when he was the majority and could stop it. Maybe that candidate needs to be reminded of his own words.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
I won’t give you a review like Noah. There are no spoilers here. I went to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 tonight. I’m not sure why it has gotten bad reviews. I already want to see it again. It started off a bit corny, but that corniness got interwoven into the movie in a way that made sense and helped lighten some otherwise pretty dark | Read More »
Tech Companies Refusing To Keep Quiet On Subpoenas
The low level griping about law enforcement subpoenas requesting user information and instructing companies to not tell the subjects of the subpoenas has burst into full fledged rebellion. From the Washington Post: This increasingly defiant industry stand is giving some of the tens of thousands of Americans whose Internet data gets swept into criminal investigations each year the opportunity to fight in court to prevent | Read More »
Hamas Clings to Jihad as America’s Top Diplomat Labels Israel an “Apartheid” State
On the heals of Secretary of State Kerry labeling Israel an “apartheid” state, Hamas doubles down on its terrorist mantra.
America’s top diplomat, Secretary of State John Kerry, recently said that if Israel does not cave to extremist demands in the Middle East, it would be an “apartheid” state. At the same time, Hamas leaders say, “Jihad is our path.”
