POLITICO’s integrity for sale at a Blue-Light Special
POLITICO continues its history of shameless water-carrying for the Clintons and the Democrat party. Now that the egregious grifting of the Clintons is out in the open, the last remaining defense is harnessing the argumentum ad populam logical fallacy to what is little more that a shakedown operation to give them cover. POLITICO does not disappoint: On talk circuit, George W. Bush makes millions but | Read More »
The Burden of Doing What’s Right
Over the weekend in the New York Times, author Lee Siegel admits to proudly being a deadbeat and he thinks you should be one too. He stopped paying back his student loans and has no regrets. In fact, he says he “chose life” instead of paying back his student loans. I turned forty this past week. I last practiced law in any form in 2006. | Read More »
A Devil’s Pact: Instead of Doing Obama’s Bidding, GOP Lawmakers Should Be Opposing ObamaTrade — #StopFastTrack
It is a rarity that I agree with today’s union bosses. However, in this instance, as unions are currently doing to Democrats supportive of fast-tracking ObamaTrade, Republican lawmakers who have bending over (backward) to appease transnational corporate lobbyists by backing the secret trade pact called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) need to hear from voters—and fast. According to the Detroit News, fast-track will be voted on | Read More »
An NBC Affiliate Manufactures a Story to Attack Conservatives
“Months before the conference, my family booked a hotel room at the same resort as ALEC,” reported Brendan Keefe of WXIA TV, also known as 11 Alive. It’s the NBC affiliate in Atlanta. “We found the fabled back room where the laws are made,” he told their audience. It was sweeps week and NBC had a scoop. What he failed to mention is that the | Read More »

Dear Reader, The Editor Hates Your F—ing Guts
Dave Perry, the Editor of the Aurora Sentinel, is having a bad time at work. The Denver Post is downsizing again and cutting costs to make ends meet. Conservatives hate the Denver Post because they think the paper leans left, though the paper has endorsed some Republicans. Liberals hate the Denver Post because it occasionally calls out leftists and has endorsed some Republicans. But what | Read More »
How Could China Hack The OPM With Smart, Responsible People Like Hillary Clinton Running America?
So China hacked the OPM and is now reading all of the personal data of Federal Employees getting background checks. This follows on the heels of Russian crime syndicates getting their hands on IRS data. This only renders the extent to which any claims by the USG that it cares one fig about the security of average Americans utterly risible. How could such a travesty | Read More »

Tech at Night: Weekend Update
Good post by Moe Lane on Edward Snowden and the Glenns Greenwald. Snowden is now outraged that NSA would target foreign (read: Russian) hackers. Gee, who’s paying his rent again?
Politics in Comedy
Yesterday, I wrote about comedy in politics, and where the line between comedian and punditry is. Now, let’s flip the subject: at what point does politics crossover into comedy’s territory? Over the last few years, efforts have been made to make sure that comedy, like all forms of entertainment, is made to be politically correct. This is a Herculean task for the PC Crowd, because of | Read More »

Unbearably White Salon Writer Exposes GOP *Wink Wink Nudge Nudge* Politics
Scott Timberg over at Salon is a white guy, which makes this piece over at Salon so odd. He is claiming Rick Perry’s use of a country rap song (that is about Rick Perry and was used to kick off his election) is some sort of cultural appropriation that the Republican Party likes to use as some sort of, and now I’m quoting Timberg because | Read More »
Could the Supreme Court Create a Titanic Shift in Electoral Politics?
(From the diaries…bill s) Amid the recent spate of Supreme Court decisions as they wind up this term lost in the discussion is a potentially blockbuster case they accepted for review for the October 2015 term- Evenwell vs. Abbott. It, in fact, has the potential to change politics for years to come, perhaps generations. This “controversy” dates back to a 1964 decision- Reynolds vs. Sims- which established | Read More »
Breaking: Marco Rubio Does Not Abuse his Influence
In the process of writing a shamefully petty hit piece on Marco Rubio, the New York Times has actually done Marco Rubio a great service, by painting him in a great light especially as compared to Hillary Clinton. You see, in the course of breathlessly reporting that Marco Rubio has had 4 traffic tickets over the last 18 years, the NYT inadvertently revealed at least | Read More »
Emma Sulkowicz: Martyr of Frauds
It’s hard to imagine that Emma Sulkowicz wants to be anything other than a martyr. She wants to go down for a cause, and her first piece of “art” is definitely going to get her there. The “art” in question? It’s a performance piece that she says is not a re-enactment of the rape she made famous that likely didn’t happen. Despite the fact that | Read More »
