First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight

    First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight

    Kay Hagan has been running a surprisingly close campaign against Thom Tillis, in spite of the fact that Hagan has done almost nothing of substance to distance herself from President Obama, who is broadly unpopular in North Carolina (and even more so if you accept the proposition that most everything Rasmussen does these days is garbage). Tillis is facing his own popularity problems in North | Read More »

    Rand Paul’s Transparent Duplicity on Iraq

    Rand Paul's Transparent Duplicity on Iraq

    Watching Rand Paul come to a decision on foreign policy can be a dizzying experience, even for seasoned watchers of the career of Mitt Romney. Two short months ago, as ISIS was already rampaging across the Iraqi countryside, Rand Paul went on MSNBC and declared that Obama was doing a fine job in Iraq and that any problems that occurred there were the fault of | Read More »

    Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?

    Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?

    Brian Beutler, who is what passes for an intelligent thinker in today’s American left, wrote an article in TNR yesterday encouraging President Obama to immediately implement his plan to enact amnesty via executive fiat, instead of waiting until after the elections. More specifically, Beutler wrote that such a move would not only be good policy, but also good politics. The sole basis for this assertion | Read More »

    Joe Biden Puts In The Labor On Labor Day

    Image Credit Toke Signals and Female Celebrity Leave it to Huey “The Kingfish” Biden to give a Labor Day Speech where a bunch of people live who can’t find work. That’s what Barack Obama’s walking anti-assassination insurance policy was doing in Detroit, MI to waste his daily allotment of time and Dioxide on September 1, 2014. He’s telling the city that can’t pay for its | Read More »

    The Only Answer to the Evil of ISIS: Eliminate it By Force

    The Only Answer to the Evil of ISIS:  Eliminate it By Force

    Yesterday I visited a museum that had a WWII exhibit which contained snapshots of newspaper headlines published just prior to the beginning of the war between Nazi Germany and Poland, and they reminded me of some similarities to our current geopolitical situation.  Before Hitler’s steamrolling of Poland and most of Europe via blitzkrieg, various politicians in Europe attempted to negotiate with Hitler, allowed him to | Read More »

    The American Aristocracy

    At one point in American history, and a point I hope we get back to, if an American worked hard enough, he could work his way up through the ranks to great success. He did not need a college degree. In the upper stratosphere, connections helped and eased the way. But outsider could still work their way in through hard work. In Obama’s America, it | Read More »

    The Hollywood Box Office Dilemma

    The Hollywood Box Office Dilemma

    “North American summer revenue barely cracks $4 billion, an eight-year low and down 15 percent from 2013,” read the sub-header at the Hollywood Reporter. The New York Times headline was “Movies Have Worst Summer Since 1997″. Grantland weighed in. So too the Wall Street Journal. I have seen a bunch of movies this year. I like the movies. One day I want one of those | Read More »

    Colorado’s Mark Udall Campaigning on Moral Cretinism

    Colorado's Mark Udall Campaigning on Moral Cretinism

    I am not sure if it will work or not, but Democrat Mark Udall is clearly convinced that he can ride to victory campaigning against the notion that an unborn human is a person. Virtually every word out of his mouth and a substantial portion of his ad buys focus exclusively on defending the absolute legal right to kill the smallest and most defenseless people | Read More »

    Maryland's thought police strike

    Stephen King should thank his lucky stars he doesn’t live in Maryland. A teacher in Cambridge, Maryland has been suspended from teaching, banned from school property, had his home searched, and been taken in for emergency medical evaluation because of a novel he wrote under a pseudonym in 2011, three years before he was hired.  A Maryland middle school teacher has been placed on administrative | Read More »

    Gary Peters (D-MI) vs. The Michigan Economy

    Gary Peters, the Democrat candidate running to replace Carl Levin in the Senate, has decided to run on a campaign of ruining the Michigan Economy by destroying America’s manufacturing sector, especially the manufacture of automobiles: Michigan Senate candidate Gary Peters wants voters — and elected officials — to know one thing: you can’t talk about climate change without talking about jobs. “I think from an | Read More »

    Nine Days, Mr. President

    Nine Days, Mr. President

    Well thank goodness. Naked and semi-naked pictures of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence have been put online by hackers who hacked the celebrities’ online accounts. No doubt the very same hackers celebrate Edward Snowden and hate the NSA snooping. The upside of the celebrity nudity being put online is that the White House staff can rest easy. They will have something to blame should there be | Read More »

    Will the African-American vote save troubled Democratic Senate incumbents?

    Will the African-American vote save troubled Democratic Senate incumbents?

    Michael Barone is… dubious. It’s apparent that even the most vigorous black turnout effort in the eight states [of thirteen with contested Senate races, including Georgia and Kentucky] with low black percentages is not going to make much difference. Democrats there must hope that their candidates can maintain levels of support from whites at or above the levels achieved by Obama in 2008 and 2012. | Read More »
