Quote of the Day, Ya Got Trouble, Right Here in West Virginia… edition.
Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with D and that stands for “Democrat.” In a Sheraton ballroom, Ms. [Natalie] Tennant, West Virginia’s [Democratic] secretary of state, listened to Michelle Obama urge donors to write “a big old fat check” to her and other women running for the Senate. But back home, where President Obama is deeply unpopular, Ms. Tennant’s campaign quickly sought to | Read More »
Leaked report reveals @JohnWalsh (the politician) ripped off Montana National Guard.
This would be Lt. Governor John Walsh, Democrat, potential candidate for Senator – and possibly the person that would have been picked to temporarily replace the possibly-quitting Max Baucus, although that might be up in the air now. The very short version: Walsh was running for a leadership position in the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS), and used his position as a | Read More »
Sixteen thousand Iowans won’t have health care because of @BruceBraley. #obamacare
Why is that? Nearly 16,000 Iowans who tried to apply for coverage via the glitch-plagued federal health insurance website are being told to apply separately through the state Department of Human Services. The Friday afternoon announcement stems from a kink in healthcare.gov, which is a key part of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The issue affects Iowans who entered their information into healthcare.gov and | Read More »
Greenwald To Host: MSNBC Glorifies Obama 24/7
Read More »
On Thursday of this week, Glenn Greenwald appeared on MSNBC to discuss Edward Snowden. Partway through the interview, host Kristen Welker asked Greenwald a question using the lifeblood phrase of cable news provocation: “critics say.” She wanted to know what Greenwald thought about accusations that he was a mouthpiece for Snowden.
Liberal Radio Blames Everyone Else For Its Failures
There are a couple of things going on in this Huffington Post article, and a downright awful understanding of how radio works as a business is only a part of it. “It was a business decision,” John Campanario, host of the LGBT talk forum Out And About and a digital marketing executive for the station, told GBM News. “The antics of people like [right-wing talk | Read More »
Kwanzaa: The Scientology of Holidays
What do you get when you take a bad science fiction writer with a desire for immortality and add a lust for tax breaks? Scientology. What do you get when you take a neo-marxist felon and add a desire for black nationalism? Kwanzaa. What do both Kwanzaa and Scientology have in common? They are products of post-modern culture given legitimacy by a press hell bent | Read More »
#BackBuck and Boot Udall
In December of 2009 I asked a couple of simple questions, “Do you believe that conservatives can win general elections?” And, “do you think that the GOP has the best chance since 1994 to make gains in the House and Senate this coming year?” In December of 2013 I find myself asking it once again. If the answer is yes, as I suspect it to | Read More »
Ahead Of Possible 2016 Run, Mike Huckabee Endorses Lindsey Graham
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee appears to be posturing himself for a possible 2016 Presidential run, recently reversing his pro-Common Core stance and ending his radio program. He also said the chances he will run are 50/50, and that he will decide after the midterms. Of course, we already know that Huckabee is a big-government politician and the only reasons many conservatives give him the | Read More »
The Christophobia Business Model Suffers A Condign Setback
You know what I think is really nice and special? I mean nicer and even more special than a venti Pumpkin-Spice Latte at Starbucks? The fact that A&E values creativity and would never encourage hate. Oh, and the fact that they are now swell enough people to forgive Phil Robertson for publicly stating that he believes homosexuality is a sin. They want this done as fast as possible now that people have reacted to their “infinite hiatus” of Mr. Robertson from his TV Reality Show Duck Dynasty.
And it gets even better. A&E tells The Hollywood Reporter what their true values are.
As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect.
It’s generally instructive to notice that members of the entertainment industry stop behaving like a ravening orc tribe and develop a rare case of the core values when they suffer an exaspirated extirpation at the hands of an utterly disgusted public. Now the obvious question here becomes how can people who stand for the saccharine-sweet pieties of post-Christian post-modernity possibly be compared to a cannibalistic pack of orcs. That answer is simple. The chritophobic bigots of American Popular Culture are like Cotton Mather without a copy of The Gospel handy.

Freedom is the only sustainable promise
Decades of a hugely expensive War on Poverty, years of a rapidly expanding welfare state, and it seems like poverty is worse than ever. Donald Lambro relates some melancholy statistics: It doesn’t get very much, if any, attention on the network news programs, but national poverty rates have been rising under the Obama administration over the last four years at least. According to the U.S. | Read More »
Did A New York Democrat Really Say He Couldn’t Afford Unionized Prostitutes?
There is something of a sexual harassment brouhaha
up in New York’s state capitol, wherein another Democrat
has gotten himself into trouble for his…er…oral overtures and other malfeasance against his female staff.

Do you take George Soros’s money? Congratulations: you’re pro-fracking!
Works like this: George Soros bought into Pioneer Natural Resources. Billionaire fund manager George Soros now owns 964,000 shares of Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD), one of the biggest players in the Texas Permian Basin. Soros’s stake is worth about $180 million. [snip] Pioneer also has assets in the West Texas Spraberry Wolfcamp. The company estimates Wolfcamp holds 50 billion barrels of recoverable crude oil.

Mary Landrieu expected for Energy chair, #Keystone approval, defeat in re-election.
Some people might think that this news might disappoint me, given that I am of course a partisan hack. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana will probably become the chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee early next year, giving the gavel to a lawmaker with deep ties to home-state oil producers and refiners. The shift stems from President Barack Obama’s nomination of Democratic | Read More »
Jesse Jackson to shake down A&E over Duck’s ‘white privilege’ Dynasty
That’s not a misprint. Even in the Age of non-white-Obama, with non-white Susan Rice privileged to be promoted to National Security Advisor after perpetrating the Benghazi-was-caused-by-a-video-lie while U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.; the Most un-Reverend Jesse Jackson (much as does his Sharpton clone) still sees America as controlled by racist Whites. Maybe he missed the last two elections in which a 70% Caucasian electorate gave | Read More »
Power means privilege
When the first big stories of ObamaCare “doc shock” began to circulate, and it dawned on Americans that they might not be able to keep their doctors under Barack Obama’s health care scheme – contrary to another of his absolutely unambiguous, often-repeated promises – Zeke Emanuel was sent out to conduct spin control. He might not have been the best choice for the job, because | Read More »
