Coal Miners Union Abandons Workers in Key Senate Races
Signaling total disregard for its workers, the United Mine Workers of America Union (UMWA) endorsed two Democrats over Republican rivals in upcoming Senate races in coal dependent states. It’s not a total surprise. Following Obama’s declaration of war against coal in 2008, the UMWA endorsed Obama during his first campaign. After observing Obama’s attack against its members, the UMWA decided to remain neutral and failed | Read More »
Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing
Via Caleb Howe comes this astonishing clip of MSNBC host Alex Wagner showing some justified concern about how eugenics is still practiced even today. Amazingly, however, she seems to believe that the most important means through which eugenics is practiced today is actually important to the prevention of eugenics. On MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner on Monday, the host unleashed a tirade at Republicans over their supposed | Read More »
ISIS and Their Western Recruits
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Shikha Dalmia to discuss the westerners that ISIS has recruited, what their numbers say about modern liberalism and what further American involvement in the Middle East will do to ISIS recruitment in the West.

ISIS is What Islam Is Getting Paid To Become
The Post-modern Manson Image Credit: UK Daily Mail The Somali and Algerian immigrants, the German and American converts, the black burkas and dyed beards, headed into the dying summer to kill Christians and Kurds, Turkmen and Shiites, to behead babies and crucify critics, don’t seem like monsters. Sultan Knish Something really great happened to me over the weekend. I dutifully attended | Read More »
Bill Clinton Agrees With Palestinian Activist: Netanyahu Is ‘Not The Guy’
On Sunday, Bill and Hillary Clinton were Iowa attending the final Tom Harkin Steak Fry event, and Bill was repeatedly pinned down in conversation by folks in attendance. During one such encounter, Clinton got into a discussion with a pro-Palestinian activist who managed to elicit a surprising, or not so surprising, comment from the former President. Activist: If we don’t force [Netanyahu] to make peace, | Read More »
Tech at Night: Why ISPs should be wary of Tor
The Onion Router, more commonly known as just Tor, is a cryptographic network of computers that seeks to provide anonymity to its users. Users connect to a Tor “entry node,” and tell it what Internet sites they want to access. That request is then passed through a series of encrypted links, bouncing around unpredictably, until it finds an “exit node,” and then that server (likely nowhere near the user) then makes the request, and the results are sent back through the network.
While Tor users are not as anonymous as they’d like, criminals use it to great effect, and that’s why Comcast would be reasonable to watch Tor use carefully.

Clinton Is As Clinton Does
Fake Steak; Real Turkeys Jim Geraghty reports that Hillary Clinton has returned to Iowa. Once every four years she whips out a Michelin Atlas and finds it. She visits it with only slightly greater frequency than with which Senator Landrieu makes it back home to Mom and Dad in Louisiana. This year Senator Tom Harkin invited her back as a personal | Read More »
Saudi Arabia cracks down on Christians. Will the United States speak up?
The situation for Christians in the Middle East continues to get worse, but this time, it isn’t at the hands of a terrorist group or band of rebels. It’s from one of our supposed allies in the region: Saudi Arabia. As Fox News reports, this past Friday (September 12th), agents from the country’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice rounded up 28 Christians at | Read More »
Natural law and the War on Wives
Human progress can be portrayed as a long, difficult, but highly successful war against nature, which retaliates with some very spectacular counter-attacks to remind us of our technological limits. Whenever I hear the state of nature romanticized, I find myself thinking that the “natural” life of man involves surviving a highly risky birthing process – ideally without killing our mothers on the way out – | Read More »

Mid-September Polls Are Not The Last Word On Senate Races
The perennial question about election polls is back again, if ever it left: how far can we trust them? Should we disregard all other evidence but what the current polling of individual Senate races tells us – which is, at this writing, that if the election was held today, Republicans would gain 6 seats in the Senate to hold a narrow 51-48 majority? As usual, | Read More »
The National Republican Senatorial Committee Loves the Senate Conservatives Fund (Or At Least Its Money)
Remember how the National Republican Senatorial Committee wanted everyone to know just how terrible the Senate Conservatives Fund is? Remember how NRSC consultants took to op-ed pages, pushed reporters, and tweeted about the lavish and extravagant expenses of SCF? Remember how when a candidate got endorsed by SCF, everyone knew immediately NRSC would support the opposite candidate out of spite? (See e.g. Ben Sasse v. | Read More »
Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley
You sort of expect liberal media bias at the national level but this astounding segment from a local CBS affiliate out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ought to count as a donation in kind to Democrat Bruce Braley. Under the guise of “reporting news,” watch as this segment gives the uninterrupted stage to Braley and his surrogates: Nary a word from or about Joni Ernst | Read More »
