Jim Pfaff for Congress
It’s been years ago now that Jim Pfaff and I became friends. He had been writing online then took a job with Focus on the Family. He worked on the Kansas Marriage Amendment issue and then worked in radio before becoming Chief of Staff for Congressman Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) 90%. But Jim is an Indiana boy and kept wanting to go | Read More »
Pro-Life Compassion: Child and Mother
On Tuesday, the announcement came that Pope Francis had given authorization to priests to forgive the sin of abortion, which the Catholic church considers a “moral evil”. …for the specific period of the Jubilee year — December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016 — the pope has removed that extra step, giving each priest around the world the faculty to grant absolution for abortion. “I | Read More »
The best chance to elect a strong conservative this year
From the diaries… My name is Matt Mackowiak and I am the Treasurer of Fight For Kentucky, a Super PAC that is set up to help elect Matt Bevin for Governor. Since 1972, Kentucky has been led by Democratic Governors for all but four years. The Commonwealth has suffered from left wing policies in Frankfort, whether they be failing to stand up for our values, | Read More »
Stop California’s Attorney General From Intimidating Conservative Donors
Liberals today are determined to aggressively stamp out and intimidate anyone who disagrees with them. That is why, when the IRS “accidentally” leaked the identities of donors to the National Organization for Marriage, those donors faced reprisals in the form of boycotts and public harassment. Since conservatives seem to have abandoned the field of boycotts for reasons of questionable wisdom, this appears to be a | Read More »

Go Back To Your Day Job, Lindsey Graham
The Republican presidential primary has both a blessing and a curse: a staggeringly deep field of candidates, many of them talented, experienced and/or plausible as national candidates. With four sitting and five former Governors (all but one of them having been re-elected at least once) and four sitting and one former Senators, collectively, they’ve won 34 statewide elections, and served over 220 years in elected | Read More »
Why “Police Lives Matter” Doesn’t Need a Hashtag Campaign
I read with interest today this column in the Chicago Tribune by John Kass called “Police Lives Matter, Too.” I agree, as I think all reasonable people do, that police lives matter. But I can’t help but think that this column – and other similar ones like it that have cropped up all over the country – is an exercise in either being willfully obtuse or | Read More »
The Situation With Kim Davis
Kim Davis is the elected Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky. She has refused to issue marriage licenses in Rowan County over gay marriage. My thinking on this is more complicated than a good or bad, yes or no, binary situation. I think government employment needs to be open to all, not just those who go along with present secular zeitgeist. A government cannot be composed | Read More »
Bob Corker (.@SenBobCorker) Triumphant
Via The Washington Post: Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) 10% of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favor the Iran nuclear deal Wednesday, ensuring a landmark victory for President Barack Obama over ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel. “No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian regime,” Mikulski said in a statement. “I have concluded that | Read More »
Senate Approval of Iran Deal Likely, But Americans Still Hate It
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Allysen Efferson and author Arthur Herman to discuss his book on American industry in WWII, then Morgan Chalfant from the Washington Free Beacon discusses the Iran nuclear deal which secured enough votes for passage today, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and yesterday’s police shooting outside Chicago.

Speech codes, but only for Whitey?
Sometimes we get an interesting look into the minds of the radicals. I limit my exposure to their rantings, but in preparing for Tech at Night posts, I have to read some of it, unfortunately. I ran into a hilarious juxtaposition of articles at the Daily Dot today, that highlighted the racism bubbling beneath the surface in the Social Justice left.
The Washington Post calls bull***t on Hillary’s email excuses
As my colleague, Leon Wolf, pointed out yesterday, Hillary can’t rationally claim to not have sent classified material when she either knew or, due to a senior moment, should have known she was creating a classified document. Hillary’s defense, thus far, has revolved around two points. First, that she did not send or receive material that was marked as classified using her off-the-wall and highly | Read More »
#WMATA Metro passengers stop a kidnapping in DC
Back in July, DC Metro riders did nothing as a man was murdered on the train. My reaction was that this is what happens when you disarm the honest population: armed criminals have their way. Fortunately this morning, an unarmed criminal was stopped attempting to kidnap a baby.
Sniffing Hillary Clinton Staffer Noses
“She is trying to run a campaign as her own woman when she originally got elected by being Bill Clinton’s kept woman.”A listener to my radio last night suggested that in New York City you can tell who Hillary Clinton’s staffers are because nearby dogs would rather sniff their noses than other dogs’ butts. There is probably some truth to that. Based on a reading | Read More »
More Flopsweat from Jeb Bush
To say that the Bush campaign is flailing about is being charitable and gracious. The campaign is in deep trouble and it has the defensive instincts of a baby harp seal. After being the target of a couple of months of direct attacks from Donald Trump, the Bush campaign has decided to hit back with this ad which highlights the various left wing positions taken | Read More »
