Emails Reveal Hillary Clinton Overslept For A High Priority Benghazi Briefing—At 10am
Back in 2008, when Hillary Clinton made her first attempt at coronation, she ran an ad touting here experience. We don’t know what that overwhelming experience was. When she ran for the Democrat nomination for president her experience was limited to land speculation, a brief foray into commodities trading, sleeping with Bill Clinton, a somnolent two-year stint at US Senator and a lifetime of grifting. | Read More »
Spike Lee Smacks Down MSNBC’s Chris Hayes On Black-on-Black Crime [VIDEO]
Last night on MSNBC, Chris Hayes interviewed Spike Lee about his upcoming film “Chi-Raq”, a musical remix of Aristophanes’s farce “Lysistratawhich” that chronicles the violence, murder and mayhem occurring in the streets of Chicago every day. Lee has faced some criticism for the film, including from the left and particularly from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd over the fact that, to put it simply, it’s not all | Read More »

A couple of Afghan pilots have gone missing in Georgia, and authorities are looking for them, according to a press release from the United States Air Force. The pair are part of a training program, but did not show up for their regular maintenance training, and are now being sought.

Will Obamacare put YOUR doctor out of business next?
Blaming the Republicans for our horrid crime of insisting we don’t spend money that we don’t actually have is like blaming a surgeon for the gangrene.

The United States Has Been Arming ISIS for Years
Remember when the Obama administration was so obsessed with gun control that they on purpose sent a bunch of illegal and high powered weapons to Mexican drug cartels just so they could track the guns? Well, this is like that, except instead of giving automatic weapons to murderous peddlers of illicit substances, we have been giving military grade weapons, including artillery, tanks, and munitions, to | Read More »

I am dead. This is how I died. Watching this video. And I’m about to watch it again. Hilarious. So I don’t spoil it, I’m going to say what my favorite part was down in the | Read More »
Stray Voltage Alert: A New Authorization For Use Of Military Force
I posted a little earlier today on the concept of stray voltage and how the administration is trying to use it to distract from its manifest failures. Stray voltage is the use of a contrived crisis or controversy to drive the real issues off the front pages of newspapers and out of news programming. As Obama was haranguing us on Sunday night over our racism | Read More »
The 2016 GOP Primary Calendar Is A Challenge For Ted Cruz
A closer look at the Republican primary calendar and its arcane delegate-apportionment rules suggests that a long nomination fight is likely to work against Ted Cruz unless he can compile a big delegate lead that cripples his opponents by the March 1 “Super Tuesday”/”SEC Primary”. That doesn’t mean Cruz can’t win; it does suggest why he may have a tougher road than (his most likely | Read More »
How Would Trump’s Method Of Barring Muslims Be Different Than Our Refugee Vetting Process
I’m not going to address Donald Trump’s idea about barring Muslim immigration. I don’t have any great problem with it and to the extent that it does NOT involve US citizens, it is clearly within the power of the US government to refuse entry to the United States. In fact, that is not even controversial. The idea of banning all travel from several Muslim nations | Read More »
In Defense of the Flat Tax
The flat tax is getting a lot of attention—and a lot of criticism—as an increasing number of Republican presidential candidates embrace the idea in some form or another. , Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and have all proposed their own variations on the idea, with an emphasis on simplicity that seems like common sense to most people. Right now, the staggering complexity of the 75,000 page | Read More »
Is Orrin Hatch is Busting His Butt to Save Obamacare?
UPDATE: One of Hatch’s staffers has issued the following statement: “Chairman Hatch has never supported or will support targeted policies like risk corridors that act as special bailout mechanisms in Obamacare. He has been very clear that any repeal or delay of harmful Obamacare policies should not have special carve-outs.” (emphasis in original.) An encouraging sign. As with all terrible zombie ideas, it’s never time to | Read More »

Club for Growth has found a true conservative to beat this pro-abortion Republican
What if I told you there was a ‘Republican’ who is not only pro-abortion (“Basically a liar” sinking pro-life efforts), but voted for the debt ceiling increase, for Ex-Im, against the sequester, and against the RSC alternative budget? This is someone who’s bad on most every issue we care about. That Republican is , and Club for Growth has endorsed Jim Duncan against her in | Read More »
Trump’s Proposal to Ban Muslim Immigration Makes Less Sense than Gun Control
We’ve had a lot of fun over the last couple weeks making fun of the idea that a committed terrorist would be dissuaded from their plans to commit mass murder (which is pretty illegal) by something as relatively trivial as gun control regulation. As we noted this morning, Abdehlamid Abaaoud was one of the most wanted men in all of Europe and he was somehow | Read More »
SHOCK! CAIR Covers For the #SanBernardinoShooting Terrorists
Water is wet. Fire is hot. On Friday, CAIR laid the blame for the San Bernardino shooting squarely where it belongs: Hussam Ayloush of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles Chapter said Friday that American and Western foreign policy is partly to blame for global Islamic terrorism and extremist ideology. … The CAIR-LA Director then placed partial blame on the United States and | Read More »
