Senate Breakers Report October 30, 2014
We come at last to the home stretch, and that means it’s time to consider again what the polls mean, what they can tell us, and what they can’t. The short answer is that we still do not know what is going to happen – but we still have a good deal of evidence to work with, and most of it suggests that Republicans have | Read More »
Neil DeGrasse Tyson Practices Theology
With the secular media convinced that Pope Francis is on the verge of disavowing Christianity (that, of course, excludes those of you reading this who are already convince Catholics jettisoned Christianity centuries ago), a very unremarkable statement by him set the internet buzzing: Pope Francis has waded into the controversial debate over the origins of human life, saying the big bang theory did not contradict | Read More »
Joni Ernst is Right to Skip Editorial Board Meetings
The media’s sense of entitlement is really something to behold whenever they feel like they aren’t getting their due. The most recent example of this phenomenon has been the media’s reaction to Joni Ernst’s decision to skip meetings with three editorial board meetings, including one with the Des Moines Register, last week. The media, predictably, is up in arms over the gall of Ernst in | Read More »
Governors Breakers Report October 30, 2014
There’s a lot of poll news to digest, five days from the election. Let’s start with the Governors races, which I last examined on October 22. As always, my method – explained at the outset – is to look specifically at the question of, assuming the accuracy of the RCP poll averages, what percentage of the remaining undecided voters would need to break in the | Read More »
Why does Obama’s crisis management suck?
An article in Business Week titled Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management (@JoshuaGreen) uses the administration’s management of the Ebola crisis, a crisis that is 100% the creation of the administration, to criticize how Obama has responded to the non-ending series of crises his administration has faced. Despite the title the article is generally positive. It blames the public for not understanding Obama. It | Read More »
Teamster Members Attack Union ‘Fatcats’ and ‘Parasites’ For Misuse of Funds, Lies & More
Members of a New York-based Teamsters local blasted their union leadership for raising their own salaries, in addition to misusing union funds, threats and lies, according to fliers handed out at union-represented worksites in the New York area earlier this week. Teamsters local 812, based in Great Neck, New York—a suburb of New York City—represents primarily soft drink and brewery workers. Last year, according to | Read More »
Supporting Sarah Palin’s #AKGov Endorsement Requires Abandoning Conservative Principles
Last week, in the wake of her endorsement of the Bill Walker-Byron Mallott Independent “Unity Ticket” in the Alaska gubernatorial race, I declared that, politically, I was through with Sarah Palin. Evidently and unsurprisingly, this rubbed her most ardent supporters the wrong way. I even merited a front page take-down at one of the most prominent pro-Palin websites.* I was called a cronyist, an establishment | Read More »

The Democrats’ Desperate, Race-Baiting Push
As several key Senate races head down to the wire, many embattled Democrats have, in desperation, resorted to their most reliable, tried and true tactic: race baiting. None has done so more gratuitously or offensively than the pasty white creature of privilege Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) who has distributed flyers suggesting that if Thom Tillis won, blacks would be lynched and more | Read More »
Why Those White Women Want Nothing To Do With Barack Obama
If a group of white Republican women adamantly refused to go near a black man and complained loudly about him, the political press would destroy them as racists. That is what is happening, however, in Louisiana, North Carolina, and Georgia. Two of the three women, Landrieu and Nunn, are the legacies of old Democrat families in their home states. Hagan is politically connected and of | Read More »
Coca-Cola’s Anti-Religious Positions
Yesterday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker had to withdraw her subpoenas to Christian pastors in Houston. The mayor demanded several pastors turn over the text of their sermons if those sermons mentioned homosexuality, gay marriage, the mayor, etc. Turns out the Coca-Cola Company’s Nonpartisan Committee for Good Government gave Mayor Parker’s campaign $1000.00. But that’s not the only time Coca-Cola has supported bigotry toward religious adherents | Read More »
Tech at Night: Sorry, FTC is wrong and AT&T is right. Without a doubt.
The latest Two Minutes’ Hate in lefty land is over AT&T getting sued by FTC because of throttling of unlimited bandwidth users.
The problem is, FTC is wrong, and AT&T is right here, and it’s not even close.

Independent, NAMED sources: Mary Burke fired from family business for incompetence.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: when I heard that Mary Burke had been essentially accused of being a nepotism-loving nincompoop who had to be fired from her father’s company (Trek Bicycle Corp) because she couldn’t hack the family business, I… shrugged. The original story had one named source – former Trek HR director Gary Ellerman, who is now the chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party – | Read More »
Clinton, Crapitalism, and the Fear Machine
It must be somewhat disturbing to the less devoted supporters of Hillary! For President that she can’t seem to make a single public appearance without dropping a gaffe bomb that takes days to defuse. It’s a good thing that Democrats are given endless opportunities to “clarify” their remarks by their friendly media. Hillary spends as much time clarifying as she does speaking. Our Lady of | Read More »
