Why does Obama’s crisis management suck?
An article in Business Week titled Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management (@JoshuaGreen) uses the administration’s management of the Ebola crisis, a crisis that is 100% the creation of the administration, to criticize how Obama has responded to the non-ending series of crises his administration has faced. Despite the title the article is generally positive. It blames the public for not understanding Obama. It | Read More »
Teamster Members Attack Union ‘Fatcats’ and ‘Parasites’ For Misuse of Funds, Lies & More
Members of a New York-based Teamsters local blasted their union leadership for raising their own salaries, in addition to misusing union funds, threats and lies, according to fliers handed out at union-represented worksites in the New York area earlier this week. Teamsters local 812, based in Great Neck, New York—a suburb of New York City—represents primarily soft drink and brewery workers. Last year, according to | Read More »
Supporting Sarah Palin’s #AKGov Endorsement Requires Abandoning Conservative Principles
Last week, in the wake of her endorsement of the Bill Walker-Byron Mallott Independent “Unity Ticket” in the Alaska gubernatorial race, I declared that, politically, I was through with Sarah Palin. Evidently and unsurprisingly, this rubbed her most ardent supporters the wrong way. I even merited a front page take-down at one of the most prominent pro-Palin websites.* I was called a cronyist, an establishment | Read More »

The Democrats’ Desperate, Race-Baiting Push
As several key Senate races head down to the wire, many embattled Democrats have, in desperation, resorted to their most reliable, tried and true tactic: race baiting. None has done so more gratuitously or offensively than the pasty white creature of privilege who has distributed flyers suggesting that if Thom Tillis won, blacks would be lynched and more recently suggested that Thom Tillis killed Trayvon Martin. | Read More »
Why Those White Women Want Nothing To Do With Barack Obama
If a group of white Republican women adamantly refused to go near a black man and complained loudly about him, the political press would destroy them as racists. That is what is happening, however, in Louisiana, North Carolina, and Georgia. Two of the three women, Landrieu and Nunn, are the legacies of old Democrat families in their home states. Hagan is politically connected and of | Read More »
Coca-Cola’s Anti-Religious Positions
Yesterday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker had to withdraw her subpoenas to Christian pastors in Houston. The mayor demanded several pastors turn over the text of their sermons if those sermons mentioned homosexuality, gay marriage, the mayor, etc. Turns out the Coca-Cola Company’s Nonpartisan Committee for Good Government gave Mayor Parker’s campaign $1000.00. But that’s not the only time Coca-Cola has supported bigotry toward religious adherents | Read More »

Independent, NAMED sources: Mary Burke fired from family business for incompetence.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: when I heard that Mary Burke had been essentially accused of being a nepotism-loving nincompoop who had to be fired from her father’s company (Trek Bicycle Corp) because she couldn’t hack the family business, I… shrugged. The original story had one named source – former Trek HR director Gary Ellerman, who is now the chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party – | Read More »
Clinton, Crapitalism, and the Fear Machine
It must be somewhat disturbing to the less devoted supporters of Hillary! For President that she can’t seem to make a single public appearance without dropping a gaffe bomb that takes days to defuse. It’s a good thing that Democrats are given endless opportunities to “clarify” their remarks by their friendly media. Hillary spends as much time clarifying as she does speaking. Our Lady of | Read More »
A Sad and Desperate Attack on Chris Christie
The Online Left, in its customary fashion, has contrived to feign outrage over RGA Chairman Chris Christie for saying this at a Chamber of Commerce event in DC: “Would you rather have Rick Scott in Florida overseeing the voting mechanism, or Charlie Crist? Would you rather have Scott Walker in Wisconsin overseeing the voting mechanism, or would you rather have Mary Burke? Who would you | Read More »
Obama’s trashing of the economy: by the numbers
As you head to the polls next week, ask yourself that quintessential political question: are you better off today than you were 2, 4, or 6 years ago? Hell, are you better off today than you were last year? For the overwhelming majority of Americans the answer is a resounding no. Though the administration likes to highlight good economic news (remember Recovery Summer) they can | Read More »
Here is a Dumb Ad by Some Braindead Idiot Liars (NARAL)
Via The Federalist, the drooling moral cretins at NARAL Colorado have really outdone themselves, even when you take into consideration that it’s NARAL you’re dealing with. , of course, is on record supporting making the birth control pill available over the counter, which somehow in the mind of NARAL equates to making it illegal. The rest of the ad is filled with literally every dumb | Read More »
Majority of young likely voters prefer a Republican-run Congress
A new Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP) poll of 18- to 29- year-olds finds a majority, 51%, who say they will “definitely be voting” in the November midterm elections prefer a Republican-run Congress. Only 47% favor a Democrat-controlled Congress. That’s a significant shift from the 2010 midterm elections, when IOP found 55% preferred Democrat control and 43% prefer Republican control.
