Via Allahpundit comes this incredible attack ad from MoveOn warning that if Republicans take the Senate, they’ll use a dubious procedure known as “reconciliation” to pass bills through the Senate (left unspoken is the indisputable fact that any Republican bills will be vetoed by Obama, but a full presentation of the facts is not really MoveOn’s strong point). Now of course, if you’ve paid | Read More »
There are still plenty of vulnerable Democrats running for reelection to the House this cycle, and Rep. John Barrow (D-GA) of Georgia’s 12th district happens to be one of the toughest races. First elected in 2005, he represented a district that barely favored Democrats up until the redistricting after the 2010 Census. Now, it has a Cook PVI rating of R+9, | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by John Daniel Davidson to discuss the Ebola outbreak in Dallas, the incompetent CDC response and how mission creep at the CDC has left them unprepared to respond to a dangerous outbreak.
This election season has seen a number of ads that are real doozies in terms of flat-out lies and distortions. It’s no surprise, with the number of politicians who are struggling to keep their jobs, to see desperation tactics in widespread use. However, by far the most dishonest TV ad yet this election season doesn’t even concern a politician at all, it concerns Amendment 1 | Read More »
Esquire has a big story for their November magazine on just how awful it is to be a congressman. “We’re in a living hell and don’t know how to get out,” the title declares. The congressmen who talk, many of them on background, reflect that sentiment. Just about everything in the article makes me happy. Why is Congress such a living hell? People in public | Read More »
24 Hours of Bad Polling Made a Devil of Sen. Hagan. We’ve been told it’s !RACIST! to demand a travel ban on lights from countries that are suffering from the current Ebola epidemic in Western Africa. Streiff told us all about how Nate Silver Voxsplained* how ineffective a travel ban would be. The Progressives had given reality its marching orders and | Read More »
The New York Times had a story over the weekend that an internal polling memo shows the Democrats must get black voters mobilized ASAP to win. If black voters do not get mobilized, the Democrats are toast. Within a day of the New York Times story, a flyer was found on cars parked at a Fayetteville, NC church for Sunday service. The flyer had a | Read More »
Jason Carter is who the Democrats have chosen to lose in the gubernatorial race this year in Georgia. Carter is History’s Greatest Monster’s grandson. He’s a Duke grad. He’s a practicing attorney. He is in the Georgia State Senate. Over the weekend, Carter participated in a gubernatorial debate and all but admitted he supports gay marriage. You can hear what he said for yourself. But | Read More »
I like to point out how the Net Neutrality / Title II Reclassification gang makes inconsistent arguments, for example complaining about ‘fast lanes’ even as it pushes for Title II which would allow ‘fast lanes’.
Well, it turns out if you scratch beneath that inconsistent surface, you get the real motivation: “to hobble corporations”. They think that’s the job of the FCC.
Every want to know how campaigns target precincts and work on vote totals? In tonight’s show I explained how campaigns work behind the scenes. Then I did a pivot. From Houston to Idaho, gay rights activists are going to make you care. I dive deep tonight.
Wendy Davis rose to fame championing the ability to rip children’s skulls open, vacuum out their brains, then rip them apart. But she did it in pink sneakers, so the media loves her. That is the only reason Wendy Davis is the Texas Democrats’ nominee. She got a Vogue profile referencing her “Barbie like good looks,” a Maria Shriver hagiography for NBC, and a lot | Read More »
Joe Biden on The Drug War Biden has sponsored more damaging drug war legislation than any Democrat in Congress. Hate the way federal prosecutors use RICO laws to take aim at drug offenders? Thank Biden. How about the abomination that is federal asset forfeiture laws? Thank Biden. Think federal prosecutors have too much power in drug cases? Thank Biden. Think the | Read More »

Trust me: the iconography and style is deliberately designed to send | Read More »

Elections matter, and real people can be hurt by a politician’s decisions, or even the lack thereof. Last year, when Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper gave a temporary reprieve to mass murderer Nathan Dunlap, people were hurt. Meet Dennis O’Connor, a father who lost his daughter and had waited 20 years for justice, when Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper threw his life into further limbo by refusing | Read More »
