It Is Time for House Conservatives to Abandon the RSC and Start a New Conservative Group
Last year the Republican Study Committee in the House of Representatives began a purge of conservative staffers. The organization, which collaborated with outside conservative groups to push the House GOP right and hold the House GOP Leadership accountable, fired several staffers who were doing just that. Since then, the Republican Study Committee has been less a check on the wayward drift of the House GOP | Read More »
The #ParisMarch Snub In Perspective
(via Rabble Writer) Ouch. A sarcastic but painful video that reminds you of exactly what leadership does, and does not, look like, the Digitas Daily short above is the kind of funnysad that is all too easy to find in Obama’s world.

For nearly 100 years, they’ve assumed the mantle of impartiality simply to cover their own failed policy aspirations. Now they are all going bat-guano crazy because the Republican majority in Congress wants to make a small dent in the gleaming fact-fogging machine the Left has built, by directing the | Read More »
Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil
I live in Macon, Georgia. We have a gang problem in parts of Macon. But in the early part of the twenty-first century we did not have a gang problem. At least we did not have a gang problem according to the new Mayor. In an historic election, the first black Mayor of Macon, Georgia declared there were no more gangs in the city.

The demographic shriveling of the Democratic party continues.
Oh, dear. It’s worse for the Democratic party than I thought. The GOP dominance in these predominantly white working-class districts underscores the structural challenge facing Democrats: While the party has repeatedly captured the White House despite big deficits among the working-class white voters who once anchored its electoral coalition, these results show how difficult it will be to recapture the House without improving on that | Read More »

She was a Massachusetts teenager who had the misfortune to have one set of doctors, those employed by the state, disagree with another set, employed by her parents. The Department of Children and Families took emergency custody of the teen on Valentine’s Day 2013 after a diagnostic dispute arose between some doctors at Tufts | Read More »

New York Times Endorses Thought Crimes
This is a really amazing editorial from the New York Times. Kelvin Cochran, the Fire Chief of Atlanta, published a book (with permission from the Ethics Office for the City of Atlanta), in which he expressed his Christian faith on sex, marriage, and life. For that, the New York Times says he included “virulent anti-gay views.” Actually, Cochran endorsed orthodox Christian views. He was fired | Read More »
The Media’s Standard in the Terrorist Fight
Yesterday, while the President was speaking about cyber security, ISIS’s friends hacked our Central Command’s social media presence. The terrorists put up propaganda videos on YouTube and posted soldiers’ personal data on CENTCOM’s twitter feed. Leave aside the question of why CENTCOM has social media feeds. The dismissiveness of the American press over the data breach was staggering. ISIS published the home addresses of soldiers | Read More »
