Hillary Clinton “Takes Responsibility” for Email Fracas (But Not Really)
The media today is dutifully reporting that Hillary Clinton has “changed her tack” on the email scandal that is threatening to sink her campaign. What does that allegedly involve? Almost exclusively saying that she “takes responsibility” for using two different emails: “I know people have raised questions about my email use as secretary of state, and I understand why,” Mrs. Clinton said Wednesday. “I get it. | Read More »
CNN: If You Oppose Gun Control You Are a “Fool” and a “Coward” (VIDEO)
Just now on CNN, host Carol Costello and Chris Cuomo held an unbelievable conversation about gun control. It is one thing for Cuomo to spout off at the mouth, because that is what he does. But Carol Costello is the host of a news program for a network that prides itself for having not gone the way of MSNBC or FoxNews, in terms of having | Read More »
What is Donald Trump’s Ceiling?
There is no doubt that the Republican race right now has come down to Donald Trump vs. everyone else. The latest Q-Poll shows Trump with 28%, followed by a large pack of candidates including Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, Jeb Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, Carly Fiorina, and John Kasich, who are separated by statistically insignificant | Read More »
What Will Be There?
Barack Obama is looking for an architect for his library. What exactly will be in the library other than his Nobel Peace Prize? Mounds of shredded documents? Stacks of erased hard drives? A taxidermied Valarie Jarrett? The “most transparent administration” in American history has actually been the least transparent and I suspect before they leave there’ll be a burn party to rival that of the | Read More »
How Bitcoin is hostile to property rights
Yesterday I called for the banning of Bitcoin and while reactions to my post included many personal attacks, Bitcoin talking points, and vague dismissals, nobody bothered to attempt to refute my core points. While Bitcoin cranks and talking point reciters were angry, it is irrefutable that Bitcoin’s intentionally designed properties make it hostile to property rights. There may be another cryptocurrency that isn’t hostile to | Read More »
We Will Not Legislate Away Evil
Yesterday morning tragedy unfolded in Virginia as a reporter and camera man for a local television station were gunned down by a man intent, according to his claims, of inciting the race war Dylan Roof had so badly wanted. Last night, in Sunset, LA, a man killed a police officer with a gun then stabbed three women. One of the women died. The gunman from | Read More »
Is Jorge Ramos a journalist or an attention whore masquerading as one?
What, exactly, is a journalist? The cynical among us (read: every comment to the posts on journalism that I write) would say that a journalist is a leftwing hack that advocates for the left-of-center causes and attacks Republicans at every opportunity. And, why not say that? Modern journalism is exactly that, you know. But, let us take the curious case of Jorge Ramos, a man | Read More »
Marco Rubio needs to wake up and pay attention
I am pretty much with most of the GOP electorate. I like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% but he’s my second choice. He’s an attractive candidate but today he tried to play it too cute by half. In a campaign stop in Florida, Rubio offered an exceedingly mild critique of Donald Trump: “Ultimately the Republican Party will reach out to all | Read More »
Nevada Obamacare nonprofit (read: ‘subsidized’) insurer goes bankrupt.
Nevada Health Co-Op – yet another element in the grand expression of failure that is Obamacare – has, well, failed.

Barack Obama, Joe Biden And The 2016 Update of The Benny Hill Show
So let’s say you were Barack Obama.* Let’s say you really wanted that 3rd Term, but for some previously undiscovered reason, you actually walked around caring what was forbidden in the US Constitution. Who would be more committed than a guy who is actually addled enough to believe he really *was* serving Barack Obama’s 3rd term? The only guy that dumb still in President Obama’s | Read More »
Donald Trump takes a page from history
Full disclosure: I am not a Donald Trump supporter. My personal favorite is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. In fact, I find myself 100% with Leon’s last two posts on Trump (here | here). Having said that, I am a distinct minority here that sees Trump as being a net positive in this campaign. I fully expect Trump to flame out. I have doubts | Read More »
John Boehner’s pro-abort adviser and #PPSellsBabyParts
People are policy. The corollary to that is O’Sullivan’s Law which states “All organizations that are not actually right-wing will over time become left-wing.” If you what an quick explanation for why pro-life legislation has had such tough time the US House of Representatives, it could be because some of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%‘s most trusted advisers are radical pro-aborts. Over | Read More »
The Creation of an Illegal Indicant
One of the most effective ways liberals win debates in the public square is to declare that certain words and phrases that resonate with the general public are illegal or off limits in polite discussion. They are attempting this with no small measure of success in the abortion arena by essentially wiping with word “abortion” out of the public debate in favor of “reproductive health | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s lawyer is in the FBI crosshairs
Hillary Clinton, by virtue of some deus ex machina, might skate on charges that she mishandled classified information. It is becoming increasingly clear, however, that her inner circle — primarily but not exclusively Huma Abedin Wiener, Cheryl Mills, Philippe Reines, and Jake Sullivan — are in grave legal jeopardy. While Clinton can claim with some plausibility that she didn’t send or receive classified information (because | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats Care More about Grabbing Guns Than About Victims of Violence
About fifteen minutes after the news broke of the tragic on-air shooting of two local CBS reporters in Roanoke, the presumptive Democratic nominee for President took to Twitter and started campaigning off the tragedy: Heartbroken and angry. We must act to stop gun violence, and we cannot wait any longer. Praying for the victims’ families in Virginia. -H — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 26, | Read More »
