About that Vigorous Refugee Screening Process we Have
Federal authorities have arrested two apparently unconnected Middle Eastern men who are here as refugees – one in Sacramento, and one in Houston – for having ties to ISIS. Both were Palestinians who were born in Iraq who were living in the United States. Thankfully, several material misstatements were found during the course of an investigation, and both were arrested before they could carry out | Read More »
4 Takeaways from Obama’s “Guns In America” Town Hall
Obama’s attempt to save the United States from gun violence began with crocodile tears on Tuesday, and continued with a CNN town hall Thursday night. He may not cry as much as Boehner did, but he certainly tries his hand at theatrics. It’s no surprise CNN would join the “we hate gun violence” bandwagon. A #StopGunViolence hashtag floated around the bowels of the internet this | Read More »
Remember, These People Can Vote: Idiots Praise North Korea For H-Bomb Test (VIDEO)
There are times when I doubt the very existence of almighty God Himself and wonder why natural selection hasn’t taken place. I think everybody with even a semblance of coherent thought would understand that North Korea testing a hydrogen bomb is not a good thing. With a lunatic like Kim Jong Un controlling things, its the last thing we want to see. Sometimes I’ll see something absurd | Read More »
Stop Pretending Mike Huckabee Isn’t More Delusionally Egotistical – and Meaner – than Donald Trump
I have apparently been mistaken as to how much Mike Huckabee really expected to win this nomination as opposed to merely raise his television/public circuit profile. When someone pointed out to him the other day that Ted Cruz had sewn up the vast majority of evangelical endorsements in Iowa, Huckabee did not respond with an “Aw shucks, Ted is great and he’s the flavor of | Read More »

Donald Trump Goes Birther On Ted Cruz. Cruz Attacks…Marco Rubio?
A lot of people don’t like Ted Cruz. I happen to be one of those people that do. If Cruz gets the GOP nomination, I will support him with money and time. I can understand from a tactical point, Cruz’s hesitance to go after Donald Trump on various issues. Even now, with Donald Trump going full birther and accusing Cruz of supporting amnesty, Cruz has | Read More »
UNBELIEVABLE. Donald Trump Not Only Goes There He Builds A House There
Leon and I both have posts up today on the ridiculous spectacle of Republicans running from what is obviously a successful and effective line of attack against Hillary Clinton by targeting the sexual misadventures of Bill Clinton. Well, as to be expected, Donald Trump is not only not running away, he’s doubling down. Hillary and her friends! https://t.co/q45tTapqMI — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, | Read More »
Watch Ted Cruz Take on a DREAMer in Iowa
Yesterday the DNC sent a plant to a Ted Cruz campaign event in Storm Lake, Iowa. The woman, Ofelia Valdez, is an illegal immigrant who is here under Obama’s DACA program. She asked, in a quavering voice, what was clearly intended to be a gotcha question of Cruz that was designed to make him look bad. I think Cruz knocked his response out of the | Read More »
GOP Losers Want To Lose Because That Is What Losers Do
When Hillary first announced that he would be campaigning for her it seemed like a plus. When it comes to retail politics, Bill Clinton is everything that Hillary isn’t. Then Donald Trump opened the door to using of Bill Clinton’s own history as a sexual predator to impeach Hillary’s “pro-woman” agenda. Back in the 1990s, the press had a virtual omerta on the subject of | Read More »

Marco Rubio’s Slick New Iowa TV Ad Focuses on his Faith (Video)
The Rubio campaign has just released a new ad that is scheduled to debut in Iowa this week. As with everything else associated with the Rubio campaign, the ad is polished and does a good job of hitting the correct notes with Iowa evangelicals. Although he is a Catholic, he is clearly versant on the intersections between his Catholicism and the Evangelical beliefs of his | Read More »
Republicans Lose Because of Lily-Livered Concern Trolling
Shawn Jesper is the Republican Speaker of the House in the State of New Hampshire. Yesterday on the floor of the State House, he apparently publicly scolded some Republicans for their “inappopriate behavior.” One of the people who was apparently the target of this rant was state lawmaker Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien, who became nationally famous for confronting Hillary Clinton about Bill Clinton’s (alleged) rape of Juanita | Read More »
Chris Christie is a Tiresome Blowhard
The media is trying to tell us that the flagging Chris Christie campaign is having a resurgence. There’s no real objective evidence of that, since his entire level of support is within the margin of error of most polls, but the media has to push this narrative in order to justify their coverage of Christie’s increasingly negative attacks on all the other Republicans in the | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Enters the Bunker. Uses Secret Service To Avoid Answering Press Questions
Hillary Clinton is bunkering down to avoid uncomfortable questions. It seems that the pressure of campaigning, of being covered by not only her tame media allies but hostile journalists, and the dawning realization that this is not 1996 and the Clintons can’t decide what will be discussed. And then there are those unscripted moments in highly scripted events, like when she was heckled by a rape survivor. Attendees to her events are tightly screened. And now she’s keeping the press at arm’s length. One wonders how long it will take the major media to get as upset over this as they were at Trump?
