Sunday shows refuse to cover the Planned Parenthood #PPSellsBabyParts story
ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN all refused to cover the Planned Parenthood #PPSellsBabyParts story on their Sunday shows signaling a conscious attempt by all those networks to memory hole the entire issue.

Median income falls to a 20-year low
When Obama leaves office he is going to leave behind a legacy of failure. Not only with Iran possess nuclear weapons and our alliances be in tatters, but he has carried out a vicious, no-holds-barred war on the national economy and the American middle class. The left is pushing the concept of “income inequality” attempting to ignite class warfare. They are doing this not out | Read More »
Jeb Bush as Jeb, Not George Or Anti-George
Today, Jeb Bush is going to start laying out what he stands for in terms of policy. He, more than any of the other Republican candidates, walks a delicate balance.

They Created Trump 2016
All the elected Republicans with heartburn over Donald Trump’s rise in the polls should really ponder their role in the creation of Trump 2016.

Blockbuster: Hillary turned down by NASA because she was a girl
One of the hallmarks of Hillary Clinton’s political life has been to manufacture relatives and events that could not have possibly happened and use them to make some imagined point about her qualifications. This is understandable. Hillary Clinton is the prime example of a woman who got to the top by sleeping with a successful man in the same symbiotic relationship that a remora has | Read More »

Donald Trump should think again about prisoners of war
This weekend the big story was billionaire and GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump (his net worth “is in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS”) going after John McCain.

Donald Trump’s Big Mistake Wasn’t His Statement on John McCain
Donald Trump made a potentially fatal error yesterday in Iowa. Contrary to what most people in the press and the establishment think, it was not insulting Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 56%. Though he crossed a line with his McCain remark, that’s not what the average evangelical, base Republican voter was paying attention to. In addition to his statement on McCain, Trump also | Read More »
Hillary Clinton is not even likable ENOUGH at this point.

Gawker acts true to its nature and the left goes crazy
The latest faux outrage in the world of the faux subject of ‘jouralistic ethics’ concerns Gawker. Let me say up front, that I am petty and mean-spirited enough to occasionally give Gawker a page view. By and large the people they write about are no more dysfunctional or detestable than Gawker’s staff but they tend to self-absorbed celebrities. If we’ve reached the point where we | Read More »
You Actually Are Better Than This, Donald Trump
Donald Trump needs to apologize to John McCain. I do not care for John McCain as a Senator. I think he is far nastier to Republicans than Democrats. I think he ran a terrible race for President. I’m just not a fan of him as a politician. But John McCain was a war hero. Contrary to what Donald Trump said today, it is not because | Read More »
