In Which Jim Galloway Needs To Learn The Google
This afternoon, our fearless leader, Erick Erickson, appeared at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s National Conference. Erick was a part of a panel discussion hosted by Russell Moore, the president of the ERLC (and author of what appears to be an excellent new book titled “Onward: Engaging the Culture Without Losing the Gospel”). Moore asked Erick: “Would you agree that the culture wars are | Read More »
George Allen, Macaca, and The Infantile Hypocrisy of the “Heavily Edited” Defense
Ask any leftist to defend the monstrosities that are contained on the Center for Medical Progress videos about Planned Parenthood, and they will immediately retort that the videos are “heavily edited.” Go on, I dare you to try it and find a liberal who doesn’t immediately leap to that canard. It cannot be done, for they know nothing else to even say about the damning | Read More »
Heb, Jillary and the Billionaire Straddle
Democracy can be a nasty business risk. It has to be managed. You can manage a risk in four ways. You can assume it, avoid it, transfer it or mitigate it*. A business leader assumes risk by remaining politically neutral. They avoid it by not doing business in ways potentially impacted by political meddling. They transfer it by selling assets or industries that are impacted | Read More »
Barack Obama uses wit and charm to woo Iran agreement critics
If you ever had any doubt about how small, petty and inconsequential a man was Barack Hussein Obama, let that doubt be dispelled after the small-minded, petulant defense of his surrender to Iran. Instead of a sales pitch, an appeal to bipartisan harmony of the type sought by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% when being furiously buggered by [mc_name name=’Sen. Harry Reid | Read More »
The August Recess and the Planned Parenthood Fight
Conservatives need to treat the 2015 August recess the way they treated the 2009 recess. In 2009, conservatives overwhelmed townhall meetings to demand opposition to Obamacare. This year, conservatives need to get out in force and demand Congress defund Planned Parenthood, even if it means a government shutdown. You need to show up in force because all lives matter, even those of children in the | Read More »

Hey, GOP, Governing Is Not Surrender
Hanlon’s Razor states: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. Ben Domenech has a must read in today’s Transom that highlights this and dovetails with Leon’s excellent takedown/analysis of the current iteration of Failure Theater the Senate, under Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54%‘s flaccid leadership, has performed on the Planned Parenthood scandal. “They don’t give a damn about governing.” | Read More »

Mitch McConnell Promises “Peace in Our Time”
Butchers are killing unborn children and selling their parts for money and your tax dollars are going to the company that employs them. Not to worry, though, John Cornyn is not going to let this interfere with the Senate calendar, and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% is not going to let it inconvenience the operation of optional government services: Senate Majority Leader [mc_name | Read More »
THE DONALD Is No Longer A Risk. He Is An Issue.
If you ever attempt to manage anything complicated you will have to figure out what to do about risks. Risks can be roughly defined as things that could go wrong and give you a problem. Once they do go wrong, they become issues. Then you have a problem on your hands. The political leadership of the GOP has failed at risk management. They now have | Read More »

FBI looking at Hillary’s email server
It is never a good thing when the FBI starts gouging around in your crap. As Harvey Silvergate wrote in his book Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent, the expansive nature of federal lawmaking and the ability of regulatory agencies to impose regulations that carry prison sentences ensures anyone being examined by law enforcement will, more likely than not, end up | Read More »
Their Lies Have Boxed Them In
“Democrats think they want this fight, but what they do not understand is that they have options. Republican leaders have no options…”We live in interesting times — times where those who used to rail against the culture embrace it and times when those who thought they were the culture realize they are on the outside. We live in times when politicians hide behind lies to | Read More »
Hooray for Donald Trump
I am probably the biggest Donald Trump doubter on this website. Among other problems I have with Trump, I have always questioned his alleged conversion to the pro-life cause, announced at CPAC 2012 with little or no explanation or conviction. But for the first time since he announced, I am glad Donald Trump is in this race. Why? Because he has called the bluff of | Read More »
When No One is Trusted to Set the Debate Stage
By now you have doubtless heard that the final stage has been set for the first-tier debate on Thursday. About the first 8 contestants – Trump, Walker, Bush, Huckabee, Rubio, Cruz, Paul, Carson – there is relatively little controversy, at least insofar as it was announced ahead of time that polling would be the primary determining factor as to who gets on stage. Huckabee and | Read More »
