Things That Heb and Jillary Are Just Too Arrogant To Understand
Tweetledum and Tweetledumberer So there’s what you could see and what you do see. If you’re optimizing your effectiveness as a person and a leader, these two sets will mutually cover. Translating somewhat theoretical math jargon to English restates this as you see literally everything you should be able to see. Most of us, your Humble Included, just don’t quite open | Read More »

A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
The GOP and Failure Theater
Sometimes you find terms that are so perfect that you just can’t let them pass. A good friend acquainted me with the idea of Cargo Cult Economics. Ace at Ace of Spades introduced me to a new one in the aftermath of the House and Senate kowtowing to a lawless action by Obama: Failure Theater. Failure Theater is the process by which the Establishment deliberately | Read More »
The DNC 2014 Autopsy
The Democratic National Committee has released the 2014 Autopsy. It is nine pages long. In 2013, the GOP released its autopsy. It was 100 pages long, mocked by the left, and in 2014, the GOP handed a historic spanking to the Democrats. The DNC report details what went wrong and what they need to do to fix it… Well, they did half of that. They | Read More »
Political Strategy and Pro-Life Legislation
So, it’s no surprise that the moment there was conflict and concern over the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the possibility it could damage the GOP’s image among the women that Boehner, et al. would pull the legislation and put forward a much safer and much smaller bill that is meant to appease the “base.” Ever-conscious of its image, the leaders of the | Read More »
GOP easily counters Barack Obama’s unconvincing, pro-forma rhetoric on tax hikes.
I said on Twitter the other day that Barack Obama’s new tax hike proposals weren’t designed to pass, or even embarrass the Right (they won’t): he made them in order to keep the Left off of his back. Alas, nobody noticed or cared enough to push back; but if somebody had done so I would have noted that ‘higher taxes’ is the Democrats’ great white | Read More »
Shutting Down The Circus
I don’t know how many of you recall the Disney animated film “Dumbo,” but there is a scene that I think is really fitting. Dumbo, the little elephant with the big ears, is written into a brand new act that involves all the grown elephants balancing on a ball (how that ball held their weight, I’ll never know). Dumbo’s job was to launch himself to | Read More »
I get it. We live in an eternal political cycle, so it only comes naturally that we should look ahead to who could or will run in 2016. Whether it is Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Ted CruzSenate Republican Average95%, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)Heritage ActionScorecardSen.

Message to the GOP: Governing is not crony capitalism
As the new Congress sets its agenda, there will be an incredible amount of pressure put on the new GOP majority to pass bills, regardless of substance, with bipartisan support to prove it can “govern.” Yesterday Utah Senator Mike Lee posted a lengthy, by blog standards, essay at The Federalist, titled Mike Lee’s Plan to Fix Congress. It is a great read and deals in the | Read More »
Now that They Control Congress, Should the GOP Audit the Fed?
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the jobs report, movements to audit the Fed and if the GOP and Democrats should work together to get legislation passed and signed by the President.

Walker Win Should Offer Blueprint for GOP
Mounting the stage last night at his victory rally in a large pavilion at Wisconsin’s State Fair Park, Gov. Scott Walker delivered a speech unlike any other he’s given in a moment of victory. References to Wisconsin were replaced by references to America, comments about state political foes were replaced by references to special interests in Washington, D.C. and aside from a couple of mentions | Read More »
The GOP’s Era of No Feelings
A look at almost all the polling shows that this is supposed to be the GOP’s year. The Republican Party has everything to gain – control of the Senate, greater control of the House, an effective means of stopping the President Barack Obama’s agenda. It is difficult – though not entirely impossible – to imagine the GOP not meeting at least their goal for the Senate. | Read More »
More DOOM! from the polls. This time it’s Gallup.
Yesterday, Gallup released a poll showing a few things, and none of them are good for Democrats.* The first is that Republicans had expanded their lead over Democrats as the party people believe is best equipped to protect the United States from terrorism: Gallup Terrorism Poll 9/11/2014 The Republicans’ lead over the Democrats on the question of terrorism is, as you can | Read More »
