Weiner Communications Director Calls Intern “Slutbag,” Other Assorted Ladybit Pejoratives
I am not making this up. Prolific sexter Anthony Weiner’s communications director, Barbara Morgan, lost her mind during an interview with TPM. The campaign staff awoke to see their former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, on the front cover of the Daily News. Inside the paper was an article bylined by Nuzzi in which she told a rather unflattering tale of her experience working on Anthony Weiner’s mayoral bid. Now, Team | Read More »
Why We Always Lose, and the Need for 21st Century Conservatives
Ever since the 1930s, or perhaps the times of Woodrow Wilson and the progressives, we’ve ceased to function as a constitutional republic governed by our founding laws. Instead we have transitioned into a pure democracy government by majority rule. The tyrannical rule of a majority of the political class, in conjunction with the lack of courage from those who claim to represent We the People, | Read More »
“The Tea Party Needs To…”
Look, let me clarify that I’m not trashing the Tea Party at all here. My problem is with this dependence we have on them. Conservatives like to call in to radio shows and say “The Tea Party needs to…!” or ask “Why isn’t the Tea Party doing…?” and complaining and whining and moaning left and right about the liberals and the RINOs staying in power. | Read More »
Vladimir’s Guide to New Orleans #RSG13
I asked my good friend and erstwhile RedState diarist Vladimir to put together a quick list of recommendations and handy links for Gathering visitors. Vladimir and I are looking forward to seeing you at the RedState Gathering 2013. We hope you have fun and enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of this wonderful, historic city.
The Liberal Media Intel Operation That Supports The War On Women
Once upon a time there was this Conservative Republican. He was the type of guy who never did anything without reading the NT and praying on it a bit first. He was running for mayor of a big city. Then his opponent found a letter written which described how this guy went after women like a Remora fish that hadn’t been fed for a couple of days. The salacious details follow below.
“More than one of us transferred out of his ‘territory’ to avoid his ‘advances,’ ” the letter said. ‘Any claim he makes to holding the ‘high moral ground’ is simply ridiculous, if not self-delusional.” The letter writers added, “Because we choose to remain anonymous, this letter may just be tossed into the round file. We’ll take that risk because even though our purpose is to ‘expose’ him, we know not to trust him, his methods, or his tendency towards revenge.” According to the letter, “Many women in D.C. refer to (xxxx) as ‘Bobo,’ ‘Mr. Misogynist,’ ‘Nasty Narcissist,’ or simply ‘Filthy xxxxxx.’ “
The politician’s career ended within six hours. Bryan Ross whinged in affected sanctimony over the false morality of the repugnant family values crowd. George Stephanopoulos reminded us in somber tones of how important this breaking news really and truly was. Except there’s just one problem with the scenario I’ve laid upon the table. A big-time politician really ran for mayor after exhibiting these behaviors and doing all the things the letter later expressed in lurid detail. It’s just that this politician, Bob Filner was a Progressive Leftist and therefore a sympathetic journalistic establishment swept all the unpleasant truths under the table. This is the Intel Ops component to the Elitist Left’s #WaronWomen.

Congressional Black Caucus Beclowns Itself Again, Wants Sheila Jackson Lee for SecDHS
No, this is not a joke. With Janet Napolitano leaving the office of Secretary of Homeland Security at the end of August, the search has been on for her replacement. One of the early candidates to replace her was rumored to be Congressman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the ranking member and former chair of the House Homeland Security Committee. As a black Democrat on the | Read More »
For Jesus. The World Against Me.
This Anthony Bradley column about Rachel Held Evans’ latest reminded me I’ve been meaning to say something about a particular cliche liberal Christians have started peddling. Hat tip to the Transom for bringing it to my attention.Rachel Held Evans, as most of the more liberally oriented Christians do these days, trots out the already tired trope that just raises my blood pressure. She — and | Read More »

Embassy Sweets: Obama Rewards Mega-Donors With Ambassadorships
Last week, President Obama announced his nomination of Caroline Kennedy to be U.S. ambassador to Japan. Upon hearing the news, you might have found yourself wondering, “Does Caroline Kennedy speak Japanese?” Or “When did she become an expert in U.S.-Japanese relations?” The truth is she doesn’t speak Japanese and she has no expertise in Asian politics. That’s not to criticize the ambassador-to-be. She’s just part | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi must resign from the House over Bob Filner coverup.
I usually try not to put things that starkly, particularly since a Republican saying that a Democrat needs to resign is going to be (justifiably) taken with a grain of salt, but… this is ridiculous. “I blew the whistle on [Bob Filner's sexual harassment] two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership,” former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said. Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent | Read More »
Tech at Night: Catching up with my trip, before my next trip to #RSG13
SGDQ raised over $230,000 as of this writing, with the main marathon about over and the bonus stream soon to begin. I got to be there for about a day and a half, which was great fun. I ever learned that hiking uphill a mile and a half from the Arapahoe light rail station to the Sheraton Denver Tech Center is a lot harder than it sounds, in that mile high air. I don’t know how the Nuggets ever lose a home game.
So, I’m back, but there’s still also going to be no Tech on Friday this week, because I’m going to be off again for the 2013 Redstate Gathering in New Orleans. So what we’re doing tonight is the same as we’ll likely be doing next Monday: a catch-up post. Enjoy.

We Will Have a Third Party
For several years, Republican establishment types and their allies in the press have mocked conservatives for wanting an all or nothing strategy. They’ve said we have to be willing to compromise. So Mike Lee proposes a plan to fund the government except for the discretionary funding for Obamacare. The reaction of GOP leaders? They only want to support a plan that fully repeals Obamacare.Conservatives have | Read More »
Cruz: Republicans Are “Terrified” Of Obamacare Fight
Today on my radio program I spoke with Senator Ted Cruz about the defunding Obamacare battle in the Senate. Excerpts: “Right now is, in my view, our single best opportunity to defeat Obamacare and it may well be out last opportunity. [..] Right now is the best time to stand and fight to defind Obamacare. We have our best opportunity to do so on September | Read More »
