Among those strongly interested in politics in America right now, the GOP leads by 14 percentage points on the question of who should control Congress. Among the electorate as a whole, the GOP and Democrats are largely tied. But the electorate as a whole does not vote, particularly in midterms. The Democrats are less likely to vote in 2014, they are less energized, and they | Read More »
Tech at Night: Are Bitcoiners ready to pay taxes like any other currency users? FTC blames the victim on Cybersecurity.
I talk about anarchists often in this space, but I mean it. These people are a threat. Here’s one cell making threats and demanding $3 billion from Google in blackmail.
And that’s why it’s so incredibly insane that the US Government keeps playing blame the victim with these guys, as in the Wyndham case. It’s going to be up to the Congress to reel in the FTC on this.

Brandon Eich, Soft Totalitarianism, and The Progressive Purificationist Hangman
A healthy society allows for differences of opinion. It even tolerates them over issues that are near and dear to each of our hearts. When we lose these arguments, this sort of healthy society genuinely aggrieves us all. If you don’t like this, and are of decent and honorable character, you work through a well-established system of polity and seek to pass laws and elect | Read More »
The Greatest Story Never Told
It seems the majority of Americans have joined me in realizing what a crappy movie Noah is. Take the Bible out of it. In fact, as my friend Brian Mattson points out, Noah isn’t even based on the Biblical telling of Noah, but on a gnostic fantasy where the serpent was the hero. Take all that out and Noah was still a pretty pathetic movie. | Read More »
Media Company Rejects RNC Press Release Because They Are Democrats
The fact that the traditional media has a strong bias in favor of liberal and Democrat positions and causes to the detriment of the GOP, conservatism, and the nation is so well established that the media, themselves, recognize it. The Media Research Center has extensively documented members of the media making candid admissions of this fact. More than a matter of opinion and anecdote, bias | Read More »
Issa: IRS Did Not Challenge Liberal Groups Tax Exempt Status
When the crap first hit the fan about the IRS auditing conservative political groups, particularly those with “Tea Party” in their names, the first defense, after “it didn’t happen” was that it happened to left wing groups as well. The Internal Revenue Service targeted progressive groups applying for tax-exempt status in addition to conservative ones, according to IRS documents released by congressional Democrats on Monday. | Read More »

#Obamacare kills 1,800 New Jersey kids’ healthcare policies.
Why? Oh, the usual reason: the federal government swooped in and slapped a bunch of extra requirements on an existing state-run program, thus automatically invalidating the current policies. As is typical in these cases, the parties involved were not able to work out how to get around the problem – kids don’t give money to Democrats, so there was of course no Obamacare exemption given | Read More »
Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Mozilla
The old story is familiar. It is one of the stories I remember my grandmother reading me in her chair — the chair from which I now read the same stories to my children. She had the Golden Children’s Bible, with the old, beautiful illustrations. Daniel in the Lion’s Den was my favorite. It was two stories past Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Nebuchadnezzar built | Read More »

Peruse any of the various stories about the Republican National Committee considering Las Vegas for the 2016 convention and the stories will read as if the GOP is going open handed to its sugar daddy, Sheldon Adelson. Already, Republicans across the nation are tripping over themselves in the rush to bask in Mr. Adelson’s presence and pledge their undying loyalty to him. Many of these | Read More »
Hubris, #Obamacare, and November.
I hope someday if, God forbid, tragedy strikes again at a military base, whoever is president doesn’t still head to a fundraiser. – That sentence was said by – at least, according to Salena Zito – an anonymous mother of two filling up her tank at a gas station; and it should absolutely terrify the Democratic party. Salena’s theme in the linked story above is | Read More »

John Ratcliffe is in a runoff in the 4th Congressional District in Texas. He is challenging incumbent congressman Ralph Hall. Ralph Hall is not a bad guy.
