Lies and Flopsweat: The Three Democrat Attacks on the Benghazi Committee
Hillary Clinton is coming to testify before Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 78%‘s committee on Thursday, and given the fact that her Presidential campaign is now in full swing, the stakes will doubtless be higher than ever. Accordingly, Democrats who are desperate to preserve her viability as a nominee (knowing full well that Bernie Sanders would be a general election disaster) have released | Read More »

Moderate Republicans open the way for Ex-Im loans to Iran
A couple of weeks ago GOP Congressman Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) 41% wrote an overwrought, panties-twisted-to-restrict-blood-flow-to-the-nether-regions, op-ed on the subject of the Export Import Bank: Some so-called “think tanks” in Washington, D.C., even create score cards, often contrived and authored by young, unelected people, simply to drive the fundraising effort that pays their salaries. Just look at your recent emails or pleas for | Read More »
Swiss voters take the moderate right to the woodshed over Open Borders
The issue of unchecked legal immigration is the hot button issue in Swiss politics. Literally for decades the country had kept the exact same parties in power, in the same proportions (the so-called Magic Formula), but once the Swiss People’s Party (SVP) began to rise on the issue of immigration, all that went out the window. The rest of the establishment has tried to hold | Read More »
Let’s Pigeonhole the Demographic
During the CNN debate, there were two moments of media stereotyping that took place that were entirely predictable. When they wanted a “Black Lives Matter” question, they went to the black reporter to toss it to the black questioner off Facebook. When they wanted an immigration question, they went to the hispanic reporter. In the media, white people cannot ask “Black Lives Matter” questions or | Read More »
Despite administration denials, Russian ground attack is succeeding
Last week forces allied with Syria strongman Bashar Assad kicked off their offensive with the aid of Russian air support. The administration was quick to proclaim this was going to be a quagmire for the Russians and result in ‘blowback.’ Right on schedule, left wing media began toeing the administration line: Assad’s first big Russia-backed campaign is not going well This, by the way, written by the | Read More »
Rand Paul’s Presidential Pulse Is Barely There
This is another not good sign for the Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% campaign. He needs Iowa, New Hampshire, or South Carolina to spring board into the SEC Primary and he does not have Iowa. It sounds like New Hampshire is not doing well either. His recent fundraising numbers are disappointing, his poll numbers are atrocious in places like New Hampshire where | Read More »
Stop Reclining Your Airline Seat
The worst people in America – maybe the world – are people who recline their seats on airplanes. This is known. Airplane seat space is a zero sum game. When you recline your seat, if someone is sitting behind you, you are infringing directly into the area where their knees would otherwise occupy. Plus, as everyone who’s been on a plane knows, you are destroying | Read More »
Georgia Tech Hates Freedom. Starts Show Trial Against Fraternity.
A black female student claims members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Georgia Tech yelled racist insults at her from windows in the fraternity house. There’s just a few problems with her story. The windows she claims were used are sealed and cannot be opened. There are security cameras too that do not show young men at the windows or the young lady outside | Read More »
It Took Amazon.com TWO MONTHS To Respond to the New York Times
Wow. Amazon needs a Prime account for its PR Team to respond to stories. On August 15, 2015, Jodi Kantor wrote this long piece on Amazon’s workplace for the New York Times. The story was damning, wide spread, and has been recirculated frequently over the past two months whenever anything Amazon related comes up. Two months later, Amazon.com has finally responded. Hilariously, its response is | Read More »
Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party of Canada won the last three elections (2006, 2008, 2011) to make him Prime Minister of Canada for nearly a decade. But today it’s not looking so good. Canada votes again today, and it’s very likely we will see Stephen Harper move on after ten years of making the right people mad at him.
ObamaCare Co-Ops’ Fail: Government Has No Business Being in Business
Government is an inherently failed entity. It always is – it always will be. Government can do a few things well (the military leaps to mind), but even those successes are woefully mismanaged and obstinately wasteful of money. With the military this is usually due to its civilian overseers. There is no “reform” of this. You can’t improve government quality of service. Because government is | Read More »
Climate Change is the Universal Democrat Scapegoat
I think I have figured out why Democrats are so wedded to the climate change narrative, even when it doesn’t make sense or isn’t supported by the evidence. The reason is that they have figured out that, to their own scientifically illiterate voters, climate change works as a universally applicable scapegoat. Why bother informing yourself about literally any issue under the sun when you can | Read More »
What if Jeb Bush Walked Away?
The Republican Establishment has begun its collective freakout that Donald Trump may win. I have long maintained I’d support Trump over Kasich and would gladly vote for Trump if he is the nominee. But part of me wonders what would happen if Jeb Bush walked away. It may be too late, but early on a lot of Trump’s core support was from people who saw | Read More »
Republicans Would Rather Lose Than Help Conservatives
Time and time again we see Republican leaders berate conservatives for allegedly taking their football and going home after a loss only to see those very same leaders be the ones who actually do leave the field. It is happening again in Kentucky where the prospect of a Matt Bevin win has so terrified the Republican Establishment, they are fleeing the state so a Democrat | Read More »
