Marco Rubio And the GOP Establishment Take Aim At Ted Cruz
I posted a bit earlier on the panic the GOP Establishment finds itself in over the rise of Donald Trump and his apparent immunity from traditional laws of political behavior and consequences. They are becoming just as panicked about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. Now a Super Pac run by a major Rubio supporter is attacking Ted Cruz for his vote to | Read More »
The Left Redefines Terrorism To Blame White People
I do have to hand it to the left. We have all these attacks by Islamic radicals and the left decides it cannot abide this. So it redefines terrorism to mean any sort of mass shooting. Now they can blame shift to white people. But wait! It’s not just to white people. According to the left, if you are white, male, and kill people, you | Read More »
Put Me on Team Trump Against Kasich
John Kasich’s Super PAC, taking a cue from John Kasich, has decided to launch a series of ads against Donald Trump. The first ad is basically a series of youtube clips of Trump saying stuff strung together. The advertisement is terrible. We should not be surprised that the Super PAC of John Kasich is as terrible as Kasich himself. The ad is cheap, unfocused, and | Read More »
The GOP Establishment Is Trying To Elect Donald Trump?
Panic is a very ugly thing. It is a triumph of primal fear over the intellect. It is when “flight” kicks “fight’s” ass. In pre-gunpowder days, armies would hammer away at each other for hours with few losses. Then panic would set in bringing slaughter with it. It is demeaning. It is unmanly. Unfortunately, panic is one of the two modes favored by the GOP | Read More »
Rubio on FoxNews: Watch a Master at Work
I used to hate the Chicago Bulls. In fact, I hated them so much I almost quit watching the NBA entirely due to how boring they made the NBA every year during Jordan’s reign. It was almost pitiful how little chance the other teams had when Jordan was in his prime. But that having been said, I used to watch them play sometimes just for | Read More »
No, Huffington Post, the Pilgrims Were Not Refugees
There are few things more amusing than watching the left contort themselves attempting to bootstrap an image that they imagine appeals to the mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, WalMart-shopping, rednecks out in fly-over country into whatever their pet cause du jour is. What makes this impulse so cute is the idea that if they relate to us in terms we’ll understand they will make their point and when they use | Read More »
Is Ted Cruz the New Favorite?
A new FoxNews poll shows that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% has pulled into a virtual tie with Trump in Iowa, as Carson continues to tumble headlong out of the picture. Trump registers 25% in the poll, followed by 23% for Cruz, 18% for Carson, 13% for Rubio, then the also-rans far behind. It looks an awful lot at this point like | Read More »
The Real Intelligence Manipulation Scandal
There is a lot of talk about how there is this massive scandal on the intelligence reports on ISIS being manipulated in order to make the JV team look like a JV team. The fact that this is happening is a major problem in the U.S. intelligence community is atrocious and shows just how much government can be twisted into nothing more than a massive | Read More »
Some good news for Carly Fiorina
From USAToday: Despite her falling poll numbers, businesswomen Carly Fiorina has one group of GOP voters in her corner. G2 Analytics, an analytics platform that allows users to give real-time feedback during live or recorded events, and the College Republican National Committee conducted a web-based focus group to measure 328 Millennial Republican primary voters’ reactions during the Nov. 10 debate hosted by Fox Business Network. | Read More »

Turkey Shoots Down Russian Military Jet
Yesterday, a Russian SU-24, a knock-off of the now retired F-111, was shot down over Turkey. The details are unclear. Russia is claiming it was moping along over Syria, minding its own business, and was shot down by ground fire. The Turks tell a different story: A Turkish military statement said the plane entered Turkish airspace over the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province. “On | Read More »
Talking Turkey: National Security – and Growing Our Own Food
Turkey: Thursday is, of course, Thanksgiving. A holiday which celebrates our inconceivable good fortune and tremendous bounty. Most of us celebrate our good fortune – by joining with family and friends to consume massive amounts of bounty. We (should) do so in large part in remembrance of how hard it was for the Pilgrims to scrape together enough food on any day – let alone | Read More »
Is Net Neutrality ‘The Law’ Or ‘The Great Internet Power Grab’?
Sometime in the next several months, a federal appellate court will choose between two narratives used to describe the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) decision earlier this year to regulate the Internet as a public utility using “net neutrality” rules: Was the FCC simply implementing the law as Congress had always intended; or Was net neutrality a ploy for an Internet power grab by three unelected bureaucrats? A | Read More »
Where Is Liberal Rage Over Mass Shooting In New Orleans?
The location is New Orleans; home of many political footballs in the last decade. The incident was a shooting; the most (forgive me) triggering situation possible in American discourse. The number of victims was 17; more than were shot in Charleston. The setting? A playground. A playground. This is news from Louisiana on Sunday. Seventeen people were shot but survived when gunfire erupted on on | Read More »
Remedial Education: Baltimore Democrats Making Students Pay More For Less
As Congress continues conferencing on its bill overhauling No Child Left Behind, news just keeps on popping up that shows why you just can’t trust Democratic machine-run states and localities to handle education appropriately. This is an ongoing problem that I’ve written about before here and here. This time, the bad news comes from Baltimore, home of struggling Democratic presidential contender and former Maryland Gov. | Read More »
