Cosmopolitan Magazine makes sure Wendy Davis stays a one-issue candidate
Your first reaction may be to wonder “Who cares?” at the news that Cosmopolitan Magazine endorsed Wendy Davis for governor of Texas. However, it is absolutely hilarious that, despite Davis trying to not be a one-issue candidate, the higher-order thinking at Cosmo has effectively boxed her back into that issue which made Abortion Barbie famous/infamous: A pro-choice governor like Davis would also make an enormous | Read More »
Follow the Money: Susan G. Komen
Pink is now one of the traditional colors of fall, having joined the shades of reds, oranges and yellows. The lion’s share of the credit is due to Susan G. Komen’s brilliant branding of Breast Cancer Awareness Month during October. From small lapel pins and ribbons to uniforms and equipment on the football field, the color pink has become synonymous with Komen’s and others’ efforts | Read More »

The Soft Bigotry of Democrat Voting Pitches
Someone named Maria T. Cardona, a self-proclaimed “veteran Democrat political consultant,” has a piece at RCP today urging Latino voters to get out and vote this fall. Wait, that’s not exactly correct, she’s actually engaging in some blandly offensive assumptions and hoping to drum up more Democrat votes. Her piece, which assumes that all Latino voters would prefer “comprehensive immigration reform,” offers two basic reaasons | Read More »
Let’s (GOP) Party Like It’s 2012
In a normal, practical world, after getting bludgeoned upside the head, smart people usually step back, appreciate their “teachable moment,” and ask, “What can I learn after this particular disaster to make sure it doesn’t happen again?” And so one would think it should be after the RNC and the Romney campaign . . . and Karl Rove’s Crossroads group. . . and the Koch | Read More »
Leon Panetta: I told the White House Benghazi was a Terror Attack
My Front Page colleague streiff has already written about what Leon Panetta said about Iraq in his book, but the revelations don’t stop there. He also wrote about Benghazi, and his account does not paint a favorable picture of the rest of the White House. Yesterday, he appeared on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, where he discussed his book, including what he said about Benghazi. National Review gives | Read More »
Shining the Light of Truth into Dark Places
I’ve noticed a disturbing trend among Christians today to shy away from confrontation, to hide behind our own personal religious views, keeping them private.
We don’t want to offend anyone. So many Christians tone down arguments so much we are nearly silent.
We’ll speak out in private church groups with our friends about the taking of innocent human life (i.e. abortion), our Judeo-Christian heritage as a nation, or the cultural ills that ensnare our society. But so many Christians today would never dream of publicly speaking out for fear of offend an abortionist, an angry atheist, or the totalitarian “tolerance” police.

The GOP May Still Have a Data/Consultant Problem
A friend of mine sent me the text below after a maddening experience in a competitive House race going door to door. I thought we were suddenly on the march with data and had our act together. I can confirm the details and it is rather horrifying. The key highlights Voter canvassing for a Republican candidate in a competitive House race 44-page walk list on | Read More »
Obama and the betrayal of the Kurds
What is unfolding in the Syrian town of Kobane is a cautionary tale on the danger of alliance warfare and an object lesson of the fearsome duplicity of the Obama administration. If you have been following the story, there may be as many as 40,000 Kurds, residents and refugees, on the city of Kobane. They are just a few hundred yards from the Turkish border | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Joy Pullmann to discuss Common Core, the ridiculous way they teach math and why society thinks our parents should have been arrested.

Thoughts on the Oughts
I can, with ease, name about a dozen pastors who fell from grace and ran to grace in their recovery. They preached on the standards of faith, how to live both in faith and in life, and they failed to live up to the standards on which they preached. “When one says all we need is grace … what that person is most likely really | Read More »
UAW Cartoon Compares Republican Party To ISIS Terrorists
Below is a tasteless cartoon that was forwarded to me last evening comparing the Republican party to ISIS terrorists who behead civilians. It was sent to UAW members (of at least one UAW local) in Michigan and, most likely, paid for by union members’ dues–many of them Republicans’ dues. With between 30-40% of union members voting Republicans, one would think that unions would not be | Read More »
Throwing Barack Obama Under the Bus
People have been expendable to Barack Obama for a very long time. As soon as they become inconvenient to him, they meet the underside of the Obama bus. Barack Obama is now about to meet the underside of Hillary Clinton’s bus. The only chance Hillary Clinton has of winning in 2016 is to blame shift to Barack Obama and sacrifice him for the good of | Read More »
ObamaCare, that most callous of ‘reforms’
The next wave of ObamaCare insurance cancellations is under way, flying largely under the national media radar… until Wal-Mart announced it would be dropping coverage for all its part-time employees. The Associated Press reports: Starting Jan. 1, Wal-Mart told The Associated Press that it will no longer offer health insurance to employees who work less than an average of 30 hours a week. The move, | Read More »
