More Bush Flopsweat. No Volunteers And No Cash.
The Bush campaign may not be over but you can certainly see the contours of the end from here. As I’ve said before, the Bush campaign was always built on inevitability. The idea was to jump in the race, raise a crapload of money, lock in big donors and endorsements, and scare off the competition. The competition that he couldn’t scare off he counted on | Read More »
Siamak Namazi: Another American Arrested in Iran
At the time of the Iran Deal’s finalization, there were four Americans held prisoner in Iran: Saeed Abedini, Amir Hekmati, Jason Rezaian, and Robert Levinson. They are still there now, unless they’ve secretly died in captivity or been executed. As my RedState colleague Matthew Clark noted, the failure of the Obama administration to secure their immediate release as a precondition for any deal with the Islamic Republic | Read More »
Climate science frauds try to hide data from Congress
Earlier this summer, a group of “scientists” led by a couple of US government employees, published an utterly fraudulent paper which, in effect, erased the decline in global surface temperatures. They did this by the rather elegant method of simply changing the recorded temperatures to something else. The federal government’s chief climate research agency is refusing to give House Republicans the detailed information they want | Read More »
The Douche Is Strong In David Sirota (.@davidsirota)
We are entering that season again where dull witted progressives try to manufacture outrage over nothing because outrage is much easier than coherent thought. Before we go farther here, let’s take a quick trip back to 2011 when a deranged leftist shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. The left, and their super PAC, the mainstream media, pounced on Sarah Palin: But critics of Sarah Palin have already | Read More »
Bush Campaign Begins Firing Senior Staff
It is Friday evening and security and HR goons are on the move at Bush campaign headquarters handing our cardboard boxes and pink slips. Among the lucky recipients is Christine Ciccone, the Bush campaign’s Chief Operating Officer. The highest-ranking official known to lose her job in Jeb Bush’s flagging campaign is Christine Ciccone, the campaign’s chief operating officer. News of Ms. Ciccone’s departure comes a | Read More »
Jeb Bush has a lot of respect for GOP primary voters
Someone has leaked the War-and-Peace PowerPoint presentation the Bush campaign has used to try to tamp down panic among their donors. In it they list the reasons why Bush will win: What is missing is #6 which is Someone Has To Vote For Him. We can argue about the whole laundry list here. Press obsession has an impact on voters who care enough to get | Read More »
Ted Cruz: Mitch McConnell “has proven to be a very effective Democratic leader.”
I posted earlier about the disastrous budget deal that was passed at 3am this morning. During the course of passing that bill, Texas further endeared himself to the GOP establishment. Here is the video of his remarks, watch it all as it is chock full of awesome. Highlights from Senator Cruz’s Senate website. “What are the terms of this budget deal? Well, in short, what | Read More »
Bush And His Super PAC To Launch Attacks On Marco Rubio
When Marco Rubio cleaned Jeb Bush’s clock in the CNBC “crap sandwich” (there I am quoting Reince Priebus) he had this to say: The only reason why you’re doing it now is because we’re running for the same position, and someone has convinced you that attacking me is going to help you. It is pretty obvious that the genius behind the strategy of attacking Marco | Read More »
James Clapper, Carl von Clausewitz, Vladimir Putin and why Russia is winning
As I’ve noted, the Obama administration, after having been humiliated by Russia’s Vladimir Putin at virtually every turn has resorted to telling anyone who still listens to them that Putin is in over his head, doesn’t know what he’s doing, bogged down, due for defeat, etc. etc. Today James Clapper, our Director of National Intelligence, was the latest administration luminary to make the claim: Moscow’s escalating | Read More »
When Will Trump Cancel His Saturday Night Live Appearance
Now that the Republican National Committee has canceled plans to partner with NBC News for a Feb. 26 debate of GOP presidential candidates because of the “bad faith” performance by CNBC’s so-called moderators during the October 28 debate, when will Donald Trump do the right thing and cancel his scheduled hosting of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” on November 7? After all, Trump and NBC have | Read More »
Remember Mississippi? Jeb Bush and Right to Rise hope you forgot.
In the Mississippi Senate primary of 2014, the state establishment simply could not tolerate their preferred candidate () losing. So the Cochrans and the Barbours got together and pulled every dirty trick they could come up with, trying to smear Chris McDaniel. This time it’s the Florida establishment at work. They watched beat their preferred guy, Charlie Crist, and by gum, they don’t want to | Read More »

BREAKING: RNC backs out of February NBC-National Review debate.
Well, half-and-half. The GOP will still be working with National Review: but NBC is taking the brunt of CNBC’s Dumpster Fire Debate. From the official letter: The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith. We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm | Read More »
John Kasich Thinks the CNBC Debate Was Awesome
Every Republican in the world – and many liberal Democrats – agree that the CNBC debate was terrible and that the moderators blew it. Reince Priebus called it a crap sandwich on live TV and said that CNBC would never host a Republican debate again. Anderson Cooper called it “poorly produced” and said that the moderators did such a terrible job it impugned the entire | Read More »
Welcome to Barack Obama’s Syrian War.
Ah, sorry: ‘conflict.’ That’s what we call wars when we don’t want to call them wars. It’s sort of a tradition, for Democrats: see Korea, Vietnam, and Serbia. At any rate: …and so it begins. The White House will announce Friday that a small number of U.S. special operations forces will be sent into Syria, according to a senior U.S. official. The senior U.S. official | Read More »
Mitch McConnell passes budget bill at 3 AM.
has shown he has a monomania about at least one thing other than trashing conservatives: spending your money. The bill cleared on a 64-35 vote, with just 18 Republicans joining all Democrats in backing the bill. … The debt deal had already cleared the House on Wednesday, as part of a rush by Republican leaders to get it done as quickly as possible, leaving little | Read More »
