Boehner’s Bootlickers Continued: The Ohio Opportunist vs. Matt Lynch
This is a continuation of our series highlighting members who represent the priorities of House Speaker John Boehner and leadership instead of conservatives. You can view the previous posts here: Part 1 , Part 2 Part 3 ,Part 4. Not surprisingly, Ohio is filled with GOP members who serve as Boehner bootlickers, due to his presence in the state’s delegation. Conservatives have a lot of | Read More »
Message To Duke University: Man Up
One of the hallmarks of the left is its never ending battle to control language and to use that control as a cudgel on its opponents. Examples abound. “Choice.” (Really? The baby chose to be aborted?) “Marriage equality.” “Homophobia.” The ever popular “Diversity” which consists of constructing the correct palette of skin colors without regard to the socio-economic status of the group. And, of course, | Read More »
WaPo uses the dread number ‘2006’ when discussing Barack Obama.
I know that the election is in six months, and six months is an eternity in politics – but so is *nine* months.

Candidate Interview: Bentley Rayburn CO CD-5
Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to sit down with retired Air Force Major General, and GOP primary candidate for Colorado’s 5th Congressional District, Bentley Rayburn. In an interview in Rayburn’s relatively modest home north of Colorado Springs, we spoke about his background, world view, and why he is running for Congress.

Money and the Tea Party
From January 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014, the National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $49.6 million, but only gave $126,000.00 to candidate and other political committees. 71% of the money it spent went to its non-electioneering operations. That looks terrible. But it is not. For example, the NRSC has been paying former employees who are now outside consultants. Those outside consultants have worked to place | Read More »

What Are Public Schools Teaching YOUR Kids About Fracking?
This terrific and terrible video from Revealing Politics shows how the schools indoctrinate kids into their leftist political ideology. How fitting this demonstration of the effects of blatant propaganda takes place at Bureau of Land Management hearing. What an appropriate venue. When conservative talk about left wing propaganda being shoved down our kids throats, democrats and liberals protest, perhaps too much, and claim we’re being | Read More »
To Change America
Stories continue to trickle out about coming Republican betrayals. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to push amnesty. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to give up efforts to repeal Obamacare. They’ll tinker instead. The only way to change the direction of the country is to change the direction of the GOP. The only way to change the direction of the GOP is | Read More »
Tech at Night: Net Neutrality, Bitcoin, and the Courts
So I spent my Tech time tonight writing about Net Neutrality. I suggest reading that. It’s still a bad idea, because it’s founded on premises that aren’t true, and doesn’t address the real issues.
Meanwhile industry’s fighting it out over Net Neutrality 3.0: the return of the revenge. Who are Obama’s picked winners and losers, and are they winning or losing enough? Do they think they can bet more?
Speaking of picking winners and losers, we’ll have to see what comes out of Senate patent negotiations. Last time the Senate worked on this there was a good Republican bill and a bad Democrat bill.

Coffee and Markets got it wrong on Net Neutrality
In Monday’s Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson really went off in favor of Net Neutrality, the policy that twice has been struck down by the courts as an illegal power grab by the FCC, and is being promoted a third time by the Obama FCC at the behest of the radical socialist wing of his party.
Francis Cianfrocca I thought put in a good effort trying to be even handed about the whole thing, but I wanted to respond to a message like that making it to the front page of RedState. I understand where both of them are coming from, and I think it’s important to explain why Net Neutrality really is a terrible idea.

The Future of Post-modern Racism Is the Rich, Liberal SWPL
Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling, Registered Democrat, both say the most outrageous things. Perhaps each man’s Paleo diet has set back his brain several decades. They’re old, ignorant, and make Archie Bunker look like a Rhodes Scholar. The punch-lines write themselves now that he stupid enough to throw the chum in the water. To sum it up, Mr. Bundy offers us the old racist argument | Read More »

Union Rules: How Teamster Bosses Overruled UPS Members’ Votes
While unions often try to portray themselves as “democratic,” Teamster members of several local unions working at United Parcel Service have learned that this is not always the case. While most of today’s unions do allow union members to vote on certain matters, if the results do not match what union bosses want, these same unions most often have the ability to override their members | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the GE-Alstom deal, a potential huge new FCC proposal and why net neutrality is good for consumers.
