Tech at Night: Julius Genachowski goes into private equity. Peter King vs Rand Paul.
They told us for years that Mitt Romney was a terrible person because of his ties to private equity. Now Julius Genachowski, Obama’s first FCC chair is going into private equity, and not a peep from the radicals.
Erick Erickson’s already covered all the reasons Peter King should be excluded from polite political society, but I just want to remind as well that Rand Paul’s grandstanding isn’t all that great. Snowden is an unrepentant criminal and traitor and it’s a shame that Paul is just sucking up to his father’s crazier fans. I guess he really wants their campaign donations more than he wants his dignity.

Antarctica Freezes Over Despite the Global Warming Jabberwocky
The Akademic Shokalskiy ventured forth to show the world that there just wasn’t enough ice around Antarctica during the Austral Summer. This would demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that Earth had a fever. We then, yea verily would have to put up with self-congratulatory lectures from the mighty Nobel prize winners like Al Gore or Michael Mann.*
Then reality intruded when the Akademic Shokalskiy got stuck in the imaginary ice.** China’s Xue Long attempted to be neighborly and pull the benighted Climate Scientologists out of the ice which the IPCC proved could not possibly exist in an atmosphere with rising CO2 levels. Xue Long got bogged-down amidst the torpor of steaming climate change and won’t be going any further south this summer without a friendly assist.

Puncturing our health care illusions
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been trying to play along with ObamaCare. Alas, his son drew the “Go Directly to Medicaid Jail” card, inexplicably diverted into that mournful welfare program by the supposedly exceptional Kentucky exchange system. Granted, “exceptional” status is a pretty low bar to clear when it comes to ObamaCare exchanges, but Kentucky was supposed to have one of the better ones… and | Read More »
Peter King Raised Money for Terrorists While They Were Murdering American Allies
John McCain really captures the essence of Peter King. There is little in Mr. King’s singularly unimpressive legislative record to suggest that he is motivated by anything other than a compulsion to utter provocative sound bites. I have never met a single other Republican who felt that Mr. King spoke for the party or for any Republican other than himself. Indeed, the only Republican organization | Read More »
The Coming Amnesty Offensive and the Need to Clean House
House GOP leaders have made it crystal clear that it is their intention to pass an amnesty bill based upon every liberal premise of the immigration issue. The only question is timing. Conservatives must sound the alarm and acknowledge that engaging in the upcoming primaries is the only way to preempt Obamacare 2.0 in the lame duck years of Obama’s tenure. When talking with many | Read More »

I’m in for $100. What About You?
I’ll put my money where my mouth is. I’m in for $100.00 for Nikki Haley’s campaign. Guys, this is more about us than anyone else. Are we willing to support the candidates who support us?The left will pour money into the campaigns of incumbents and new people who are pledged to fight for them. But will we? Most people don’t think we will. And in | Read More »

Reboot and Recommit for 2014. Support @NikkiHaley.
As many of you settle back into your office chairs this morning, understand this: the left still dominates the right in online fundraising. They are able to fund and support candidates online in a way we can only dream about. And they intend to harness the power of the online left to support candidates in states around the country. One of those states is going | Read More »

Creating a Constitutional Litmus Test
It’s understandably hard to focus our attention directly on all the fronts the radical left has opened up in their truculent effort to transform our Republic. They are erasing our borders, disrupting the markets, infringing on our liberties, appeasing our enemies, and taking over major sectors of the economy. Most of us would like to direct the lion’s share of our energy towards the economic | Read More »
I find myself writing more and more about matters of faith. And in writing about matters of faith, I find the hostility of the critics and opponents vastly more ferocious than when I just stick to politics. When I was in England back in November, I had breakfast with Matthew Lee Anderson. He said he noticed I had taken to writing about faith more and | Read More »
Rep. Peter King of New York Supported a Soviet Backed Terrorist Group
Rep. Peter King lashed out at Senator Rand Paul today over Sen. Paul’s position on the National Security Agency.In a bit of hysteria, he questioned Senator Paul’s patriotism and loyalty to the United States. This is pretty rich considering Rep. Peter King, during the Cold War, supported a Soviet backed terrorist group responsible for killing many. King, ardently supported the Irish Republican Army. The intelligence | Read More »

@BarackObama decides NOT to be the adult in the room wrt unemployment insurance extension.
You can tell by the fact that he’s demanding here that the House simply agree to allocate the money for another ‘temporary’ three-month extension of unemployment benefits for people unemployed past 26 weeks. The GOP is not adverse to extending benefits, by the way: but the House is fairly insistent that this spending be offset by an equivalent amount of cuts.
