Hillary Clinton agrees Planned Parenthood should be investigated
Color me gobsmacked. It is a sign of just how damaging the videos of Planned Parenthood have been that Hillary Clinton, the recipient of the 2009 Genocide of Untermenschen Margaret Sanger Award, has tepidly agreed that an investigation is in order. Calling them “disturbing,” Hillary Clinton said undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue raise questions about the process | Read More »

Time for the GOP to Crap or Get Off the Pot
Anyone who has known me for longer than about 30 minutes knows that I am a Boston Red Sox fan. After the collapse in the 1986 World Series, that experience was, for about 15 years, an unmitigated experience of misery and the addition of reasons for Red Sox fans to nurse their massive inferiority complex with respect to the New York Yankees. However, beginning in | Read More »
Why do we even bother?
A couple of days ago, Ben Domenech, writing in The Transom, asked a question that many of us have been asking (at least) since the first of the year: Why does the Republican Party exist? What is its purpose as a political entity – to what end do its members work to elect their fellow Republicans? What are its priorities? Whose interests does it serve? | Read More »
“Cuckservative” is a Racist Slur and an Attack on Evangelical Christians
Despite the white washing by Breitbart.com (pun intended), the phrase “cuckservative” is a racist slur. It is used by racists in support of a racialist agenda. The people who use it are not opposed to illegal immigration, but are opposed to immigration in general. They are opposed to evangelical Christians who support interracial adoption. They are opposed to anyone who does not think in terms | Read More »
Mitch McConnell’s Yips
Y’all need to read this. What you’re hearing all around Capitol Hill over the past few days is the murmur of staffers saying nervously what their bosses can’t: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% has the yips. Say what you will about McConnell’s ideological grounding, or lack thereof – there was a time when the total leadership failure of the past week would | Read More »
Newsflash: Republican Senators Love Cronyism
With the Republican takeover of Congress earlier this year, conservatives hoped we’d see an end to cronyism. We hoped in vain. It turns out Washington has proceeded as normal, carrying on with its usual tricks. The GOP-controlled Senate is working hard to revive the Export-Import Bank. And the Senate wants to bring back a bunch of “green energy subsidies” that we thought we had dispensed with. | Read More »
Harry Reid channels Strom Thurmond: Senate to Vote on #DefundPlannedParenthood
The Senate is going to vote on a “right wing crazy deal” (as Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 11% calls it) before the August recess. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% supplied the bluster, but Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) 63% along with a core group of senators pushed through a deal that will allow a floor vote on | Read More »
Planned Parenthood attacks
“Deny everything. Admit nothing. Blame others. Make counter-accusations.” That, in a nutshell, is the Planned Parenthood strategy for surviving the revelations that far from being a non-profit they are a rapacious and conscienceless entity that would have shamed the Burkers of Regency London. Now that a politically connected — by ‘politically connected’ I mean Democrat –crisis communications firms is on board we are seeing an | Read More »
Planned Parenthood Is Our Auschwitz
The third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood from the Center for Medical Progress is out. By now, the takeaway from this media is clear: this is our Auschwitz. Some might recoil at this statement. Wait a minute, they’re thinking, cool your jets. Auschwitz was a concentration camp. That’s not Planned Parenthood. In the simplest terms, no, Planned Parenthood is not a concentration camp. It is | Read More »
So, @PPFA hired a PR team to suppress the videos
This is according to POLITICO: Planned Parenthood has hired high-profile Washington public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal and release of a third undercover video Tuesday showing a clinic’s staff handling fetal tissue after an abortion. The additional PR firepower reflects the growing pressure on the women’s health organization amid building GOP calls to cut its $540 million in | Read More »

I dunno, folks. What *do* you call a socialist who ISN’T an internationalist?
Look, Marxism was all about internationalizing the socialist movement: “Workers of the world, unite!” “…I don’t think so. Bernie don’t play that.”

The GOP Senate is Not On Our Side
We have reached the point where a clear majority of sitting Republican Senators do not deserve your vote even in the general election. I say this because, quite simply, they have demonstrated time and time again that they are not on our side. Instead, they are on their own side. The priorities that these nattering, out of touch buffoons have embraced are so far out | Read More »
