Charlie Crist, Troll
So in case you missed it last night, at the beginning of the Charlie Crist/Rick Scott debate, one of the most bizarre moments in recent political history unfolded when Florida Governor Rick Scott refused to take the stage because of controversy over a fan. Here is video of Fangate in all its cringing, awkward glory: Let’s just acknowledge the blindingly obvious right off the bat: | Read More »
The President Who Cried Wolf
ISIS was just a group of amateurs. They were the junior varsity team. Now they are overrunning Iraq. But the President told us that. We could keep our doctor if we wanted to. The President told us that. Insurance rates would not go up and no one would lose their insurance. The President told us that too. He also said the Syrian rebels were too | Read More »
Tech at Night: Anarchists attempt to intimidate the Silk Road trial judge
Delay, obfuscate, distract. The anarchists are doing everything they can to try to keep Silk Road drug ring founder Ross Ulbricht from facing justice. His lawyers want his trial delayed and are slinging mud about FBI, and his fellow anarchists are attempting to intimidate the judge. America used to bar anarchists from entering the country. These days it’s easy to see why that was wise.
Michelle Nunn cowardly refuses to stand with Barack Obama.
There is a hierarchy in the Democratic party, and when one enjoys the hereditary rank in it that Michelle Nunn does then one can expect special consideration.

Liberal Website Deadspin Pushes Out a Democrat Lie Against Cory Gardner. Blows Itself Up.
Look, this is just the latest bit of desperation sweat to drip from the Colorado Democrats’ sulfuric pores. The blind partisans at Deadspin crafted a nice narrative but didn’t bother to fact check it. Predictably, every Democrat partisan hack in the state dutifully jumped on the issue and promoted it as if it were their October surprise. Seriously, you can go look at the #cosen | Read More »
Mayor Annise Parker Needs a Bible. Will You Send Her One?
The mayor of Houston, TX, has subpoenaed the sermons of local pastors and the speeches of local religious leaders to see what they have to say about homosexuality. I fear Annise Parker has never read the Bible. If she wanted some sermons so bad, she could go to church, but I don’t know that she will. So I think we should help her out. You | Read More »
World Health Organization Priority is Taxes, not Ebola Crisis
I wrote last week about the WHO’s plan to push for a massive, de facto global tobacco tax at a big confab in Moscow (because, obviously, there’s nothing more pressing – cough, cough, EBOLA, cough, cough – that the WHO should be focusing on than people smoking). Well, from Russia comes word that at the conference, that plan was passed, after members of the public, INTERPOL, people | Read More »
Follow the Money: Human Rights Campaign
In November of 2006, Wisconsinites went to the polls and a purple-to-blue state handily re-elected Democrats to statewide office, namely then-Governor Jim Doyle and then-Senator Herb Kohl, who took a whopping 67 percent of the popular vote. Yet, those same voters approved, through the state’s constitutional process, the passage of Referendum 1, an amendment explicitly recognizing marriage solely between one man and one woman in | Read More »
John Boehner and Mitch McConnell Need to Lead on Ebola
Barack Obama and his administration are refusing to impose a travel ban from West Africa into the United States. Meanwhile, the CDC is freaking out because a nurse who now has Ebola flew on a commercial jet. A solid majority of Americans want a travel ban from West African countries. There are, in fact, direct flights from those countries to the United States. If Barack | Read More »
Obama Has An Ebola Czar. She Re-Directed Federal Research Money to a Democrat Donor
You may be wondering why Barack Obama, with his propensity to name “czars” for every problem that ails us, has not named an Ebola Czar. The reason is because he has, in fact, named an Ebola Czar. So why are we constantly seeing Dr. Tom Frieden of the CDC embarrass himself in press conferences instead of our Ebola Czar? Mollie Hemingway has the details. It | Read More »
Ebola sends Obama to DEFCON ONE. Fundraiser canceled. Cabinet meets.
Ebola has finally achieved status as a national security problem. How do we know this? President Barack Obama has canceled a trip to New Jersey and Connecticut and will instead hold a meeting about Ebola at the White House. “The president’s travel today to New Jersey and Connecticut has been postponed,” the president’s Press Secretary said in a statement. “Late this afternoon, the president will | Read More »
New O’Keefe Video: Mark Pryor is Lying about his Marriage Equality Stance
The Arkansas Senate race is one of the closest ones this election season. As a Democrat in a conservative state, incumbent has tried to present himself as a moderate in tune with his state’s more conservative leanings, especially on social issues. He has emphasized repeatedly that he does not support same-sex marriage, but how does he really feel when the cameras and microphones are off? A bombshell | Read More »
So It Is a Problem That the Nurse With Ebola Got on a Plane
The nurse who now has Ebola in Texas flew on a plane days before apparently developing symptoms. The CDC is freaked out and wants passengers who were on the plane with the nurse to call them. Why? They CDC opposes a travel ban to West Africa. They say that if the person had no symptoms there is no reason to worry. They say the nurse | Read More »
Chemical weapons discovered in Iraq; Washington Post says they don’t count
One of the repeated calumnies made against President Bush (say it again… President Bush…. slowly…. savor every syllable) was that he went to war against Iraq based on false pretenses. From President Bush’s ultimatum speech to Iraq on March 17, 2003, back in the days when we drew “red lines” we meant it: Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the | Read More »
