From the Mail Bag: Juris Doctorate Edition
Hahahahahahaha. As a lawyer, or at least as a recovering one, putting “JD” next to your name is probably the most ridiculous thing a person can do. I don’t even know people who do “Esq.” anymore for the most part, but “JD”? Really? Oh, and Streiff is getting a promotion for his excellent ability to rid us of high in the saddle JD’s. From: Adam | Read More »
Kingston, Hice, and Loudermilk
I had hoped that Karen Handel would be able to get into the runoff for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. She is a dear friend and was a great candidate. Though underfunded, she tirelessly built momentum in the final few weeks of the campaign. But Phil Gingrey was able to get enough support out of the metro-Atlanta portion of his district that it, among other | Read More »
Gun Stores, Credit Ratings And The 2nd Amendment
I’m not a weapons expert myself. The last time I fired was years ago on a US Army range. I’m not necessarily the RS.com go-to guy on 2nd Amendment Issues. However, I do like the other nine amendments in The Bill of Rights just fine, and therefore am more than willing to have 2nd Amendment Defenders’ backs when the government deliberately oversteps their authority to | Read More »
Tuesday Night Primaries Open Thread.
Well, there’s Georgia, and Kentucky, and Oregon’s: also, Idaho? – Anyway, here’s a thread for all of those. As usual, AoSHQDD is covering the close ones. Moe Lane PS: Folks? Just… stay frosty, OK? Look at what happened to the anti-war, Bush-hating Left; some of them are still trapped inside their own personal Hell-space, and it’s been going on six years now. You don’t want | Read More »
McConnell for Senate
I genuinely like and rooted for Matt Bevin. But his campaign made an early mistake that got amplified through the course of the campaign. He needed to give the reason “why him” instead of “why not McConnell.” Instead, he got beaten in the definition game, outspent, and overrun. Matt Bevin will not be the Republican nominee in Kentucky. As much as I wish he would | Read More »
Obama poised to allow illegal aliens to enlist in the Armed Forces
Last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced he would not allow the ENLIST Act of California Republican Jeff Denham to be voted on. This was the culmination of an intense campaign by Heritage Action and the Madison Project to stop this ill considered bill. Mr. Denham is, apparently, one of those Chamber of Commerce Republicans who are committed to “doing something” on immigration no matter how dumb “something” | Read More »
Running against the System
The latest bad-news poll for Democrats is a Politico poll of battleground states that shows Republicans leading by a historically wide margin on the generic ballot: In the congressional districts and states where the 2014 elections will actually be decided, likely voters said they would prefer to vote for a Republican over a Democrat by 7 points, 41 percent to 34 percent. A quarter of | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ More on the Conservative Conference…
As I mentioned before, at the conservative conference I went to over the weekend here in Southern California, there were many pleasant surprises and creative approaches being utilized in our camp that were brought to the forefront. One of them was a hilarious stand-up comedian I had never heard of before. His name is Evan Sayet and he is a Jewish ex-liberal — states he | Read More »
Indiana’s Medicaid Expansion is Bad for the Hoosier State
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Josh Archambault to discuss Mike Pence’s plan to expand Medicaid under Obamacare in Indiana, what it could mean for Indiana taxpayers and the latest Medicaid news from Arkansas.

Republican Tom MacArthur Uses Lawfare Against Steve Lonegan
Tom MacArthur is running against Steve Lonegan in the 3rd Congressional District in New Jersey. According to my friend Charles Johnson, MacArthur is suing Steve Lonegan, Lonegan’s treasurer, secretary, campaign manager, consultants, researcher, Charles himself — everyone associated with Lonegan’s campaign. Why? It has to do with the Lonegan campaign distributing this news article. According to the Daily Mail: Tom MacArthur ran York Risk Services | Read More »
Tech at Night: Democrats use AT&T and DirectTV to distract from needed FCC Net Neutrality oversight
So even as Democrats try to distract from critical oversight issues by making angry noises about AT&T and DirecTV, Republicans aren’t taking the bait and instead are applying proper oversight to the FCC. Because you see, while the radicals make false anti-“fast lane” arguments for their Title II Reclassification alternative, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Zombie Net Neutrality is still a power grab. It’s a power grab that the Democrat-run press is colluding to allow, buddy-buddy with pro-Net Neutrality corporate lobbyists such as Google’s.

Losing Oregon: Does the NRSC Vet Its Candidates?
I think the NRSC would much prefer beating up conservatives in 2014 than win the Senate. The NRSC has spent so much time and money attacking conservatives and running smear and whisper campaigns about them, we now have another candidate they did not vet. We have lost Oregon with Monica Wehby. She seemed to be a good candidate with a great ad that neutralized her | Read More »
Center For American Progress demands Sustainable Racism in education
Over the weekend we posted about the effort of Democrat elites to achieve Sustainable Racism. This would enable race baiting and racial animosity to be preserved as a governmental goal and a lucrative career path. As this year is the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court decision that outlawed racial segregation in schools based on the “separate but equal” doctrine | Read More »
