The Politico Shows Just How Terrible Hillary Clinton Is
Nobody seems to know what that old lady from New York has actually accomplished. It is pretty telling that the Politico has to run a fluff piece on her accomplishments and no one can agree what they are. Some people even think her accomplishments include a reset button with Russia and Libya. That’s just amazing. What’s even more funny is that some of the Democrats | Read More »
Jeff Flake plays four-dimensional chess on Iran
If one of the signs of a person being raised to the maximum level of incompetence is a focus on minutiae, then sheer, bloody-minded incompetence is the order of the day in that august body. Let’s review the bidding. Barack Obama negotiated what, to all intents and purposes, looks, smells, and tastes like a treaty with a known state sponsor of terror, which is illegally | Read More »
25 million to ZERO
It is at minimum 25 million to ZERO and it could be as high as 45 million to ZERO. That is the number of people who have watched a Republican Presidential debate to the number of people who have watched a Democrat Presidential debate. It’s not like the Democrats are without a primary process. There’s Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, and some old lady | Read More »
Carly Fiorina’s “I Don’t Care” Attitude Is Bothering the Left
It has been quite enjoyable to see liberals and the mainstream media (one and the same) flail about in reaction to Carly Fiorina and her debate-winning performance on Wednesday night. Her gender doesn’t have bearing on whether conservatives like her so much as it’s her gender that makes liberals loathe her. Odd, I know. Remember though, women’s empowerment must contain important things like abortion rights | Read More »

The Iran nuclear deal is final
Via Reuters: U.S. Senate Democrats blocked legislation meant to kill the Iran nuclear deal for a third time on Thursday, securing perhaps the greatest foreign policy of President Barack Obama’s six years in office and clearing the way for the agreement’s implementation. By a vote of 56-42, the Republican-majority Senate fell short of the 60 votes needed in the 100-member chamber to advance the legislation | Read More »
Canada’s polling shows instability coming after the Harper decade
Canada has been lucky to have 10 years of good governance by Stephen Harper, the man who took the brand new Conservative Party of Canada and won elections with it. But 10 years is a long time to govern a country, and the polling is looking grim. On the plus side, the situation is so unstable, anything could happen.
McConnell: Congress will “inevitably” break spending caps
Unbelievable, right? That the Senate majority leader would continue follow up deception and betrayal with abject, preemptive surrender. That McConnell would give up hard-won spending caps that actually worked for… well, for nothing. Not only is it not unbelievable it is guaranteed. Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% (R., Ky.) said Wednesday that Republicans would “inevitably” enter into discussions with | Read More »

The Mathematical Bottleneck in Donald Trump’s Immigration Plan
I hesitate to engage the specifics of Donald Trump’s immigration plan as though it was a serious proposal, because it clearly is not. However, I must point out one glaring problem that people who do not have the good fortune* to have a background in administrative law proceedings like I do are missing. Everyone right now is focusing on the wall and the possible problems | Read More »
UPDATED Rumor: Scott Walker Dumps Campaign Manager Rick Wiley
The Washington Post had a story earlier today about the growing disarray in the Scott Walker campaign. There is mounting anxiety among Scott Walker donors about the direction of his campaign and increasing fears that it is running low on cash, leading to a growing consensus among some of the Wisconsin governor’s biggest financial backers that he needs to make a dramatic change. Most of | Read More »
Can Donald Trump Please Get Us Those 25 Stories From 2003?
If Trump wants to rely on his positions in 2003, the rest of us should too. He made it fair game last night. In 2003, Donald Trump was a bleeding heart liberal Democrat. He supported Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 15%. He supported the Clintons. He supported amnesty. He supported universal health care. He supported abortion rights. For months, Trump supporters have said | Read More »
Carly Fiorina: The Right Outsider
It’s early in the primary process, but Republican primary voters at this point seem determined to nominate an outsider for President, in the sense of someone who has literally never held elected office. I think this impulse is a mistake, as I explained about a month ago, because it ignores the obvious fact that the most important test is how one survives becoming an insider: Basically | Read More »
Jesus Christ vs. Donald Trump: To Count the Cost of Following
Here is your must read of the day. My friend Russell Moore, the head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, has come out with a pretty strongly worded rebuke of Donald Trump. It’s one of those “I wish I’d written this” pieces. In the 1990s, some of these social conservatives argued that “If Bill Clinton’s wife can’t trust him, | Read More »
