At some point, you really have to wonder when they’ll stop trying. Every other attempt the Left has made to get Rush Limbaugh taken off the airwaves has ended in failure, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying, and failing, again and again. This time, though, the effort was especially laughable. As Breitbart describes it: Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get — in their | Read More »
An interesting essay by Obamacare architect, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel called Why I Hope to Die at 75 is making the rounds. It is significant for a couple of reasons. First, it provides an insight into how the secular elites are coming to regard life. Secondly, Emanuel had, and continues to have, enormous influence on how health care policy is developed in the United States. Let | Read More »
One year ago today, Ted Cruz took to the floor of the Senate and gave a very long speech railing against Obamacare. The law has been a documented disaster, so much that some Democrats still fear the effect the law could have on their races. Senator Cruz, who knew going in he would not be successful in trying to hold up the Senate, nonetheless stepped | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Allysen Efferson are joined by F.H. Buckley to discuss his new book on crown government in America, the rise of executive power in Washington and why parliamentary systems may have more freedom than the American model.
Presumably this group will be deploying in flip-flops so they won’t constitute “boots on the ground”: As the U.S. expands its war against the Islamic State, the Army is preparing to deploy a division headquarters to Iraq. Officials have not identified the division that will deploy — the first division headquarters to go to Iraq since the U.S. withdrawal in 2011. An official announcement is | Read More »
Demotic Environmentalists Image Credit: Bergheim Follies Demotism is a form of mob rule, where politicians pander to what they see as the popular will, rather than making their own decisions as independent leaders. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. used the occasion of the recent Climate March in Manhattan to grandstand and attempt to increase the demotic pressure of the mob on UN | Read More »
The Democrats sure are desperate this year. Over in South Carolina, the Democrats’ gubernatorial nominee, Vincent Sheheen, is accusing Nikki Haley of killing kids. Three children were killed by their guardians within the Department of Social Services. Sheheen wants everyone to know Nikki Haley was actually the murderer. Except Sheheen got basic facts wrong to make his case. He ran with the ad, then had | Read More »
From Army Field Manual 7-21.13, The Soldier’s Guide: 4-7. The salute is not simply an honor exchanged. It is a privileged gesture of respect and trust among soldiers. Remember the salute is not only prescribed by regulation but is also recognition of each other’s commitment, abilities, and professionalism. In a way we shouldn’t be surprised. After living through the dark years of the Clinton regime | Read More »
Hey, did you know that if you are not clocked in at the office you are not working, even if you are sitting at home on your laptop cranking away on a report? That is the essence of this ridiculously stupid piece from Philip Bump at the Washington Post. Bump is apparently the new court jester of conventional wisdom over at The Fix. According to | Read More »
I honestly and truly do not like to tell people that the best thing that they can do for the Republic is not to vote. But… …if Joe Biden’s argument here swayed you – if the thought that Mitt Romney, if elected, would try to: Reverse our withdrawal of troops from Iraq (there’s a heck of a lot of people in ISIS-held territory that wish | Read More »
Once They Get In It’s Over. You can put a fork in Silicon Valley. They are done. Jesse “King of Beers” Jackson has his talons in their tills and they have maybe, at best, 10 more years in which they will be a positive and innovative source of American technological advance. He informs us that ”Hi-tech giants have a moral and | Read More »
For most of the time since Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton were decided, even pro-abort liberals were of the opinion that abortion was a last resort. This culminated in Clinton’s famous promise to keep abortion “safe, legal, and rare.” That consensus is evaporating as pro-life forces are winning significant victories within the corrupt legal structure laid out in Roe v. Wade. With each | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by CJ Ciaramella to discuss the abusive civil forfeiture process in Philadelphia, innocent victims whose property was seized and how the abusive actions benefit the DA and police.
Last night the United States and the Coalition of the Useless launched the first round of airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria. It was a predominantly American affair but a handful of Arab states tagged along as window dressing: The attack was carried out using a mixture of warplanes dropping bombs, remotely piloted aircraft and ships firing cruise missiles. Aircraft from several Arab states took | Read More »
