Bush campaign officially on death watch
Last week I posted on the the devastating Florida poll that showed Jeb Bush as fourth place and in single digits in his home state. I also posted on how his fundraising profile is dangerously skewed towards large donors who have already maxed out their campaign contribution. This all followed a decision by the Bush campaign to cut staff, cut staff salaries, and generally pare | Read More »

Donald Trump Finally Treats an Opponent with Respect and Good Faith
One of the things that has grated many about the way Trump has handled his campaign thus far is not that he has attacked his fellow Republicans, but that way he has attacked them – resorting often to biting personal insults and the talking points of the left. There’s definitely room for vigorous debate about policies and personalities without treating fellow Republicans as enemies rather than | Read More »

Saint Crispin’s Day, 1415
The campaigning season of 1415 had not gone all that well for young English King Henry V. He had landed near Harfleur, France, with an army of about 12,000 men. After a lengthy siege, the fortress and city fell but at the cost of about half of Henry’s army. Determined to salvage something from the campaign, Henry led his army in a march through areas | Read More »
Trump Falsely Credits Himself With Ford Moving Plant From Mexico To Ohio
Saying Donald Trump has a big ego would be as revelatory as saying the sun rises in the east. That Donald Trump exaggerates his accomplishments and downplays his own failures would pretty much make him like the average politician. But there are times when a person’s hubris gets to the point where it reaches the level of the absurd. For Donald Trump, it’s taking credit | Read More »
Hillary Clinton thinks Republicans are behind the VA scandal
Hillary Clinton’s interview with Rachel Maddow gives some insight into Hillary’s twisted psyche when she thinks she is addressing an audience that believes like her. A few hours ago I posted on her absurd victim-blaming of the Libyans for the chaos resulting from her ill-conceived operation to overthrow Gadhafi. Deeper in the interview you find this: MADDOW: One policy question that I think the Republicans | Read More »
Political Wire (.@politicalwire) lies about Ben Carson’s abortion position
I suppose it is a sign that Ben Carson is being taken as serious by the political left and the media which takes its orders from them. Today, Taegan Goddard of Political Wire told a complete lie about Ben Carson. He has a story headlined Carson Would Make Abortion Illegal Nationwide. Ben Carson said he would “love” to see Roe vs. Wade overturned, making abortion | Read More »
Hillary says the Libyans were just too dumb to govern themselves

Hillary Clinton: From each according to his ability; to each according to his needs
If the Clinton’s did anything at all for American political life it was proving that once you had divested yourself of a sense of shame or any impulse to tell the truth then the world was your oyster. For instance: “There is something wrong when the top 25 hedge fund managers make more than all the kindergarten teachers in America combined.” —Hillary — Hillary Clinton | Read More »

Donald Trump makes fun of Ben Carson for saving lives
They tell me Donald Trump is pro-life. Despite his assertion he’d fund the “good aspects” of Planned Parenthood (even though he of all people should know money is fungible), I’m told this. So imagine my surprise this morning to see that Donald Trump is making fun of Ben Carson for having a career centered on life saving, rather than pure profit.
Donald Trump begins a troll of Ben Carson
All during the 2008 primary season and the 2012 primary and general campaigns Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion was fodder for the left. The silly twit, McKay Coppins, wrote a piece for BuzzFeed titled A Brief Guide To “Mormon Underwear”. The Atlantic promised Mormon Underwear, Revealed. Now Donald Trump has brought up the fact that Dr. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist: He also derided | Read More »

No One Cares About the Sexual Orientation of Athletes Except the Left
As we’re constantly reminded by social justice warriors, it’s 2015. Gender and sexual orientation don’t matter, and it’s highly disrespectful to focus on them. “Stop looking at those things. They just don’t matter. Be progressive and open-minded, fool!” The SJW crowd is filled to the brim with those who claim to look past whether you’re a girl or gay, yet overwhelmingly, they are the ones | Read More »
