California Instructs Churches To Bow Before The Golden Idol of State Power.
4Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, 5That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:Daniel 3:3-4 If you had any doubts over whether the State of California respected the | Read More »
A Denuded Victory
If the polls are to be believed, the Republicans are more likely than not going to regain control of the Senate next year. Probably, they will increase their margin of control in the House. These are good things, I guess, in the sense that all elected Democrats are pro-abortion and removing one from power is always a net positive. So a week from Tuesday I | Read More »
With 12 Days to Go, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Wants Republican Leaders to Oppose Religious Liberty
Georgia is facing a very close election. Public polling has the Democrat leading the Republican for the U.S. Senate seat. The Republican Governor is neck and neck with Jimmy Carter’s grandson. And Georgia’s Chamber of Commerce today wants Georgia’s Republicans to publicly stand against Hobby Lobby, the Little Sisters of the Poor, and religious liberty in general. Many of the state’s Republican leaders will do | Read More »
Tech at Night: Inside the Beltway they blame anyone but government
All too often it’s the case that government acts, and forces corporations to behave in a certain way, but then we go and blame the corporations instead of the government that’s making them do it.
Naturally the folks inside the beltway reacted this way tonight during the World Series game. Blame anyone but government.

It’s Like a Gang Land Initiation
The man who beheaded that lady in Oklahoma is a recent convert to Islam. The Canadians suffered a terrorist attack today by a recent convert to Islam. The day before they had another attack by a recent convert of Islam. I don’t remember ever hearing about a recent convert to Christianity shooting up a government building, killing a soldier, or beheading anyone. But if you | Read More »
Polling Against the President and Other Trends
I spent a great deal of time on all the national polling trends against the President. More and more I’m beginning to believe something is off with a lot of state level polling.
A vote for Democrats is ‘A Vote for President Obama.’
Variants of this are going up in six states: Courtesy of Freedom Partners Action Fund, this is part of a $6.5 million ad buy hitting Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire (online only), and North Carolina. Which is good news, but I have to ask something: how, in God’s name, can anybody look at this and not see it as speech? Just how ignorant do the professional | Read More »
Fact Check On Fact Check Of Dana Loesch’s New Book ‘Hands Off My Gun’
Dana Loesch’s new book “Hands Off My Gun” went on sale yesterday, and naturally the liberal media immediately want it quashed and destroyed. Loesch is a favorite target for these attack groups, not least because she is such a fierce advocate for gun rights and protecting the constitutional freedoms guaranteed to Americans. One such outlet, Media Matters for America, posted a supposed fact check of | Read More »
ObamaCare: failure at any price
It was rather refreshing to see the very brief return of cost/benefit analysis to the American Left during the Ebola crisis. You had to listen carefully to hear it, but the muddled arguments against imposing a travel ban on the West African outbreak nations boiled down to an assertion that the safety benefits would not be worth the costs, which would be paid primarily by | Read More »
Governors Breakers Report October 22, 2014
As promised yesterday, the second half of the latest installment of my roundup of the RCP polling averages (these for the Governor’s races), looking at what share of the remaining undecided vote would need to break in the GOP’s direction to win each race. The overall trend across numerous races since October 1 (even since yesterday, when I started gathering these figures) is positive, but | Read More »
Follow the Money: Apple Inc.
Unless you’re completely off the grid, you’ve read about Apple’s most recent releases including updated iPads, their latest operating system for Macs and of course the new iPhone 6 and Apple Pay. As a result of these products that seemingly can’t stay on the shelves, Apple’s earnings, which were released on Tuesday showed a revenue of $42.1 billion. Clearly, Apple has come a long way | Read More »
Arab Spring: the gift that keeps on giving
When the Obama regime engineered the overthrow of the governments of Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt during the much ballyhooed “Arab Spring” the administration did not have a strategic or geopolitical goal in mind, rather it was carried out strictly in the service of domestic politics. Obama wanted to prove that he was the “anti-Bush.” He wanted to demonstrate the efficacy of “smart power.” And he | Read More »
Congress must move slow on increasing NIH funding
As the administration continues to flop about like a landed fish in its response to Ebola, the agencies that mismanaged the US response are looking at the panic caused by their ineptitude as a fund raising gimmick (here | here). The core of the problem is not that NIH or CDC has too little money but rather they have too much. The Washington Free Beacon | Read More »
Mark Udall’s Extremism and the GOP’s Fight for the Senate
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Leon Wolf to discuss recent statements by Mark Udall illustrating that he is to the left of most Coloradans, the chances of the GOP winning back the Senate and a new challenge to religious liberty in California.
