Why the Ashley Madison Hack is Going to be Awful
In case you missed it, Ashley Madison, the website that specializes in meeting people online to have an affair, was hacked, with millions of email addresses, aliases, and other assorted personal information having been taken. Last night, the info was dropped in large, mostly unorganized files on torrent sites. The Bowels of the Internet (4chan, Reddit, etc.) have been combing through the information, starting with | Read More »
Fetal vivisection is SOP: a new Planned Parenthood video drops
Citizens for Medical Progress has released another installment of its investigation into the harvesting of baby organs by Planned Parenthood. Like last week’s installment, this one consists of mostly cuts from the previous undercover videos interspersed with an interview of a former StemExpress employee named Holly O’Donnell. But there is some new undercover video as well. In terms of emotional impact, it will not hit | Read More »
Donald Trump Makes John Boehner Expendable
This year began with an election on whether Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% should continue as the Speaker of the House of Representatives. A number of brave House conservatives, led by Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) 94%, Tom Massie, and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 78%, waged a historic effort to deny Boehner the Speakership. What resulted was | Read More »
Jeb Bush supports more surveillance of Americans
So far, with the exception of an attack on Hillary’s alternative history of the Iraq War, Jeb Bush has given the impression of a man sleep-walking rather than one with the fire-in-the-belly it will take to win the nomination and the presidency. Sometimes he seems like the fighter who is trying to throw the fight just to make the pain end. Such was the case | Read More »
How many politicians will abruptly resign because of the Ashley Madison hack?
The Ashley Madison hack has apparently now reached the next stage: i.e., a full database dump. Boom.

Hillary Clinton’s dumpster fire press conference
America’s addled grandma, Hillary Clinton, made a campaign stop in North Las Vegas today. More than 300 cheering and applauding people welcomed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton to a town hall at the Pearson Community Center in North Las Vegas where she was scheduled to speak Tuesday. Clinton said she has a plan to make college affordable and let people refinance their student debts at | Read More »
Bush donors getting uneasy
There is some whistling past the graveyard in this piece from The Hill: Jeb Bush’s donors aren’t sounding the alarm — yet. The former Florida governor had been labeled the GOP’s front-runner, but polls show he’s trailing Donald Trump by a wide margin. Even some supporters say he turned in a shaky performance at the first Republican debate earlier this month. The son of one | Read More »
Hillary’s email problem gets worse
Hillary Clinton’s email has proven to be the gift that just keeps on giving for the Clinton campaign. It has metamorphosed from a right wing conspiracy that was belittled to something that appears to place Hillary Clinton and her closest associates in grave jeopardy. We already know at least 305 emails may contain classified information and of that 305 no less than two contain information | Read More »
Washington Post channels Kelly Osbourne on immigration
So Donald Trump has released an immigration plan. I’d be lying if I said that I like all of it but I like the predicates he announces for any immigration plan. 1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border. 2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional | Read More »
Trump remains ahead, but the polling is unclear
I said last week that we needed more polling to be sure of the Trump situation after the debate and the Redstate Gathering. It turns out the new polling hasn’t clarified things yet.

Hillary Clinton, the Not So Inevitable
Although she should be next in line for the Democratic nomination, Hillary is most definitely not knocking this White House run out of the park. She’s no Obama. In fact, she’s no Clinton. She exudes none of the charm that her husband did (does?), and her cold, calculating demeanor makes her pioneering, first-female, proud-grandmother act seem incredibly strained. The 2008 + 2012 “warmth” from Obama | Read More »
Our Ways Are Not Their Ways
I am reminded of the story of Elisha and the chariots of fire. The King of Syria sent his army down to Dothan to capture Elisha, who had been revealing that king’s plans to the King of Israel. Elisha’s servant was scared so Elisha prayed that the servant’s eyes would be opened to fully see. They saw, surrounding them, the army of the Lord in | Read More »
Scott Walker channels Ted Cruz
Nearly a month ago, Senator Ted Cruz responded to Senator Mitch McConnell’s blatant and serial duplicity in dealing with his own caucus in a blistering speech on the floor of the Senate. In part, he observed that there was not one bit of difference in how McConnell has acted and how Senator Harry Reid would have operated: “There is a profound disappointment among the American people because we | Read More »
A federal minimum wage should be anathema to anybody who likes local city life.
Do you like living cheaply in your reasonably happening city? Then you shouldn’t like a higher minimum wage.

Health Insurance Companies And ObamaCare Cost Increases
One of the promised benefits of ObamaCare was that it would “bend the healthcare cost curve down.” Few of us believed that would be the case. It’s proving to be another ObamaLie. From 2009 to 2013 the U.S. did see a reduction in the growth of healthcare spending — not a reduction in spending, some relatively good news nonetheless. But Obama and Obamacrats who gave | Read More »
