You Are Being Played
I oppose comprehensive immigration reform. I think Congress always fails as comprehensive legislation. But, long time readers know I am squishier on the immigration issue than many RedStaters. There are portions of what the President proposed last night that I support in principle and, frankly, was surprised by how mild some of the actions were, given the run up to the announcement. But whatever I | Read More »
Gay Rights and Sex Crimes: Ironies From the Human Rights Campaign Files
The Human Rights Campaign is a gay rights group in Washington heavily connected to the Obama Administration. In the past, the group has labeled the Family Research Council a “hate group.” In fact, the day before a gay rights activist entered the Family Research Council’s offices to kill its employees, the Human Rights Campaign had labeled FRC a “hate group.” The Human Rights Campaign recently | Read More »

Is There a Deal Between Adelson and Reid to Ban Online Gaming?
Image credit: Shutterstock.com Last month we reported about the Sheldon Adelson-financed group the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling and two of its lobbyists who, when they held elective office, supported the use of gambling revenues to fund favored projects. “The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling is a relatively new group headed by two politicians-turned-lobbyists, former New York Republican Gov.

Democrats’ vaunted social media team embarrasses its own party, again.
I thank God every day that I don’t have to produce this kind of masturbatory fodder for my political party. ‘Ethnic cleansing.’ Ye gods and little fishes…
Republicans Will Vote to Fund President Obama’s Amnesty. Then Try to Take It All Back.
You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him. That is happening again. This time | Read More »
Jim Webb throws his hat in the 2016 ring
Virginia Democrat and former senator Jim Webb has created an exploratory committee as the first stage in a 2016 presidential run. Via Politico: “I made this decision after reflecting on numerous political commentaries and listening to many knowledgeable people. I look forward to listening and talking with more people in the coming months as I decide whether or not to run.” The Vietnam veteran added, | Read More »
Asian students sue Harvard for discrimination
In the 1920s many Ivy League schools faced a conundrum. Their admissions policy was based on how an applicant placed on an admissions test. If you scored high enough, you were admitted. Under that system the dimwitted scions of major donors were being turned away in favor of *gasp, horror* the sons of Jewish immigrants. According to Jerome Karabel in The Chosen: The Hidden History of Admission | Read More »
Will Lavender Nazis Kill a Reality Show?
The one thing that we’ve learned in the ongoing war over homosexual marriage is that homosexuals are probably the most vicious and vindictive interest group in the nation. They are not content with mere equality but rather are obsessed with demanding that their particular brand of sexual deviance is not merely accepted but celebrated as something other that what it is. Writing in “One Nation, | Read More »
Last night I took a lot of calls from angry listeners who were not just angry at the President, but at the GOP for not fighting to stop him.
Bernie Sanders – The Purest Leftist Possible in 2016.
Che, Bernie and Leon – Ideological Bretheren So Diogenes wandered the City of Demville with his lamp. His shoulders sagged, his expression grew hang-dog. He searched in vain for one honest man other than Jonathan Gruber. Ah, but his eyes lit up and his frown turned around. There was one man….one honest man on the American Left. That one last defender | Read More »

Republicans Will Not Block Barack Obama (Because They Want the Same Thing)
In 2011, Barack Obama said he did not have the constitutional authority to do what he is going to announce today. In fact, on March 28, 2011, Barack Obama said “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Yeah, still more on Title II Net Neutrality extremism
Image credit to Mike Wendy at Media Freedom. When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% called Net Neutrality the Obamacare of the Internet, the left squawked, but it’s true. Net Neutrality, including via the Title II Reclassification power grab, is all promises, but will predictably have bad results for all of us. Its so bad even the Reverend Jesse Jackson dislikes it because | Read More »

So That Explains the Buzzfeed Hit
Buzzfeed and much of the rest of the press is covering the bizarre behavior of an Uber executive who wanted to dig up dirt on at least one journalist. I love Uber, but geez they behavior like Nixon runs the joint. My 9 year old and I used Uber all through New York City last week. It was a great experience. In any event, last | Read More »
