Think Three Unelected Bureaucrats Should Raise Taxes Whenever They Want?
That’s what Title II Reclassification of the Internet means. And that’s what President Barack Obama wants – so as to then impose Network Neutrality. Last month, President Obama said: I believe the (Federal Communications Commission) FCC should reclassify consumer broadband service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act…. Let’s ignore for a moment the fact that the FCC is supposed to be an independent agency | Read More »
God Bless Dick Cheney
Democrats who spent a number of years being advised of what the CIA was doing to extract information from enemy terrorists released a report claiming we were torturing bad guys. Further, they claimed that we were gaining no valuable information from that torture. Individuals in the intelligence community have pointed out, mostly to deaf ears in the press, that (1) these same Democrats were well | Read More »
AZ-02 election results to be FINALLY certified on Tuesday.
I know that this seems to be a long time, but in fairness Republican candidate Martha McSally’s final lead of 161 votes over incumbent Democrat in AZ-02 was well within the parameters to justify both a machine recount and a spot check hand-recount of selected precincts in the District. Reading between the lines… it’s widely if quietly expected that McSally won. To the point where she’s | Read More »

CRomnibus passes because of GOP support
Jesus wept. The debate exposed divisions within the Democratic and Republican caucuses on both sides of the Capitol and sets the stage for what could be a year of internecine squabbling in 2015. Twenty-one Senate Democrats voted against the bill while 24 Republicans voted for it, including every member of the Senate GOP leadership. The next time anyone tells you the GOP Senate leadership opposes | Read More »
Senate GOP Leaders and Their Pro-Amnesty Pundit Friends Find Harry Reid’s S**t Sandwich Quite Tasty
“A Senate source outside the Cruz and Lee offices with direct knowledge of the behind the scenes conversations tells me, ‘GOP leadership knew Reid was going to file cloture on up to 20 controversial nominations yesterday afternoon before they tried to move CROmnibus votes to monday.’” The level of butt hurt among pro-amnesty Republicans is staggering. They are savaging and in ways the left refrained | Read More »
Obama Orchestrating Regime Change in Israel
President Obama’s toxic foreign policy consists mainly of placating America’s adversaries and manipulating our friends (that and combatting the imminent threat of global warming with a one-sided American policy of economic seppuku). Now we are learning of Obama’s latest reach into what has always been the ken of agencies like the CIA: regime change. Only this isn’t to topple Communism in Central America or extremists | Read More »
The Left’s plan to retake state legislatures through targeted character assassination.
(H/T: Instapundit) There are several amusing things about this article from the Washington Examiner on the topic of what the Left hopes to do towards state legislatures in the upcoming election cycle: “We’re working with David Brock and Media Matters and American Bridge who have trackers that we can send out to monitor the debate on some bills that you all might be running,” Nick Rathod, | Read More »
Dead donor rule for organ transplants is being challenged
Back in 1995, Pope Saint John Paul II took note of a tragic flaw and tendency in the modern culture of developed nations in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (Latin: “The Gospel of Life”): Here we are faced with one of the more alarming symptoms of the “culture of death”, which is advancing above all in prosperous societies, marked by an attitude of excessive preoccupation with efficiency | Read More »
David Fin Ties Helps Veterans
This is your non-partisan, non-political post of the day. For the last month or so, after noticing someone I follow on Instagram promoting David Fin’s ties, I started following David Fin on Instagram. I am a tie snob. I have tons of ties. I used to need them for work when I was a lawyer. Now I need them for when I am on TV | Read More »
Everybody Counts or Nobody Counts: #AllLivesMatter
As a fan of Noir Fiction Novels, I’ve read through better than 2/3s of Michael Connelly’s series featuring Detective Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch. Bosch was a relentless investigator and cleared a prodigious number of cases. He also had this unfortunate yet endearing habit of sticking his foot in his mouth and failing to toe the PC line at times. One example of his crazy malapropisms was | Read More »
Tech at Night: Weekend Update
They say that after a fire in the US Embassy in Moscow during the Cold War, the Soviets loaded the whole building with bugs and the whole place was insecure after that. In that spirit, it makes a lot of sense that Google is getting out of Russia. It’s just not safe.
Actually, it’s the *conservatives* who can make better plays to the middle in 2016.
Allahpundit is raising an excellent point, here: Why would a center-right voter prefer Jeb Bush to Scott Walker? We all do understand, I hope, that Walker will be running basically as a centrist, yes? …I think he’s going to run as a similar sort of pragmatist as Bush — lots of talk about jobs and education, squishy on immigration, socially conservative but low key about | Read More »
Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS
Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US economy and ruining every alliance the nation had | Read More »
The bogus statistics behind the “rape epidemic”
Occasionally good things actually come out of bad things. Two bad things happened recently. Rolling Stone accused several men at a University of Virginia fraternity of a violent and brutal gang rape a part of a pledge initiation rite. That accusation seems, now, to have been concocted out of whole cloth by an amoral and avaricious writer preying on a troubled young woman. The second | Read More »
