DCCC covering up stalking videos?
People may recall that Politico published a story several days ago cataloging what appears to be a somewhat alarming trend: to wit, videos showing ostensible ‘tracking’ of Republican candidates by individuals. I say ostensible because the way that the videos come across are as rather obsessive stalking of said candidates. For example: while it is understood that a candidate will be followed around, casing a | Read More »
Why Should David Parker Resign?
The North Carolina Democratic Party State Chairman David Parker has encountered a passel of trouble. It seems his Executive Director-cum-Hatchet-Man Jay Parmley was caught homosexually harassing an employee and responded by firing the individual in question. He then attempted to conceal the sordid and predatory turn of events by bribing this individual into signing a non-disclosure form. The rank-and-file Democrats are disgusted and have become | Read More »
Obama-Reid Opposed Debt Limit Increase
“Taxpayers Against Earmarks” is back with a great new advertisement. The group that helped fight the anti-earmark campaign last year is now called “Ending Spending” — an equally clear name to reflect their broader mission. With a thought-provoking new ad, Ending Spending is joining the growing fight against raising the debt limit without serious spending cuts and budget process reforms:
Daily Caller: was Yucca Mountain shutdown lawful?
The DC has the scoop*: Congress is now investigating whether the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) actually had the authority to unilaterally shut down the Yucca Mountain nuclear storage facility without Congressional authorization, given that Yucca Mountain was authorized under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. Furthermore, there are now serious questions about whether the NRC’s leadership – and, by extension, the Obama administration – | Read More »
The Righteous Indignation Book party.
Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World! is, of course, Andrew Breitbart’s latest book; and I had the opportunity to schmooze meet up with folks from The Daily Caller / Americans for Tax Reform at a book party that they threw for Andrew yesterday. I finished the book itself today: it’s very accessible, and while it told me a lot of stuff that | Read More »
Video: Michael Moore Robin Hoodwinked
In the above video, Mary Katharine Ham absolutely devastates Michael Moore‘s Robin Hood Hypothesis regarding America’s money woes. Spoiler alert: It’s a stupid hypothesis. The grand total of the combined net worth of every single one of America’s billionaires is roughly $1.3 trillion. It does indeed sound like a “ton of cash” until one considers that the 2011 deficit alone is $1.6 trillion. So, if | Read More »
Today in Washington – November 17, 2010
The Senate Republican Conference voted to ban earmarks yesterday. A victory for conservatives — Hold on a second. Moments after the announcement some Republicans stated that they would publicly flout the rule and Democrats pledged to fight to protect bloated pork barrel spending. Although the President has pledged his opposition to earmarking, the true test may come soon if Congress sends him an Omnibus spending | Read More »
Tech at Night: Google, Apple, Adobe, FCC, FBI, TSA, Free Press
So, while Google may have seen the light on Net Neutrality (which is actually, amusingly enough, making the far left sound like me), they still have other issues going on. The WiSpy Street View spying issue is still ongoing, with South Korea raiding their offices and Germany pressuring the firm to be more transparent and responsive to privacy complaints about the program. Because as I | Read More »

Babs Boxer: Being a Senator is as tough as being a soldier
It’s no wonder Madam Senator Barbara Boxer (Democrat-California) demands to be called Senator: She thinks it’s a pretty tough job. In fact, she thinks it’s as tough as being “a policeman or a fireman or a veteran.” It gets better, too. She says “the pressure” that she and Maxine Waters feel creates the same bonding that the aforementioned police, fire, and military volunteers endure and | Read More »
JournoList ‘Sick Puppies’ Planned Attacks on Sarah Palin
The most insidious form of media bias is deciding what to cover and, more importantly, what not to cover. The revelations uncovered by The Daily Caller in regard to Journolist have been damning on that front. The latest involve Sarah Palin and while anyone with a speck of honesty already realized that the media has been out to marginalize her from the very beginning, Journolist | Read More »
Eric Boehlert of Media Matters Race Baits on GMA
Please take a moment to watch the debate on Good Morning America between Eric Boehlert of Media Matters for America and Andrew Brietbart of, among other outlets, Big Government. Eric Boehlert states the following about the Tea Party movement: There are clearly racist elements. If you look at the Tea Party media, Glenn Beck is now saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating a race war. Rush Limbaugh is saying | Read More »
Members of the Media Plotted To Shut Down Coverage of Jeremiah Wright
It is as we all suspected. It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign. | Read More »
Tucker Carlson & Daily Caller Own Keith Olbermann
The folks at the Daily Caller have scored a most excellent coup. Today they own Keith Olbermann. Literally. Okay . . . technically it is KeithOlbermann.com, but still. That is just awesome. They’ve just set a very high bar for the rest of us to be Worst Person in the World this week. Sigh.
Tech at Night: Sunlight, Free Press
Welcome to Tech at Night. For a while now my second writing job at RedState* has been covering tech issues at night. Mostly it’s Internet issues these days, because that’s where the grabbing hands of the government have been grabbing all they can lately. But now I’m making it official, with a logo and a schedule. From now on I expect to be posting Mondays, | Read More »
Wal-mart Moms: This year’s catch phrase?
Wal-Mart decided to do its own generic ballot poll, so it’s no surprise that the cutesy demographic group that’s coming out of it is ‘Wal-Mart Moms.” But if they’re real, they’re real, right? So who are they?
