Barack Obama is a Sore Loser
After the 2012 election, a not insignificant amount of digital ink was devoted to covering various Republicans’ “sore loser” responses to Barack Obama winning a second term, but as with so many things regarding the Left, there’s a lot of projection here. As we have seen in his responses to the 2014 midterms, Obama himself has an inability to suffer defeat gracefully. In a news conference | Read More »
Delusional Wendy Davis Campaign Remains Delusional in Postmortem Analysis
Fresh off of one of the worst political defeats in Texas history, the Wendy Davis campaign is showing no signs of serious self-introspection. As Breitbart reports, they are mainly attributing their losses to immigration and…Ebola: Speaking on behalf of Davis’ campaign, Communications Director Zac Petkanas told the Wall Street Journal, “The losses that you are seeing in very blue states are simply amplified in states like Texas | Read More »
Obama celebrates repudiation with release of another Al Qaeda suspect from Gitmo
And so it begins. Richard A. Serrano reports that early Wednesday morning, just as the magnitude of the midterm repudiation of President Obama and his radical policies was beginning to be realized, the Obama regime released a “long-held Al Qaeda suspect from Gitmo.” That’s right. As soon as Election Day was over, amidst all the happy talk about getting along with each other, ending gridlock and getting things done, they | Read More »

A new Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP) poll of 18- to 29- year-olds finds a majority, 51%, who say they will “definitely be voting” in the November midterm elections prefer a Republican-run Congress.

White House pretends that not trusting them on immigration is crazy-talk.
There are times when I don’t really get this administration’s messaging strategy. The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president’s post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland Security. “I mean, this is crazy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, adding he would caution reporters against “making assumptions” based on | Read More »
The White House Gaslights America on Immigration
The evidence by this point has become pretty overwhelming that the White House plans some sort of mass amnesty via executive fiat immediately after the elections have concluded. Disgruntled Democrat Hispanics have openly declared that Obama has promised them as much, and earlier this week, Breitbart News revealed that the Administration was placing a supply order that would enable them to issue 34 million green | Read More »
The Candidate I Hope the Dems Run in 2016: Luis V. Gutierrez
It’s amazing the distance Leftward of rational thought that committed Progressives are willing to travel to find and recruit their own personal Anti-Hillary. They seem to like the DNC about as much as I and several of our other Front Page Contributors at Redstate like the RNC. Today the meme amongst the Progressive Unwashed seems to be that Hillary has a Hispanic problem. Perhaps this | Read More »
Americans forced out of US military; illegal aliens allowed to enlist
This is an interesting juxtaposition of events. On the one hand, the armed forces are undergoing a reduction in force, thousands of junior enlisted men and women are being denied the opportunity to re-enlist while a few thousand junior and mid-grade officers and non-commissioned officers are being involuntarily separated or retired. Many of those are currently serving in combat: Of the more than 1,100 Army captains | Read More »
Mary Landrieu Welcomes Hispanics to the New Democrat Plantation
For years the Democrats have operated their party like a plantation, where black voters in particular are expected to be present but not ever actually given anything in return. Now they appear ready to try the same trick with pro-immigration reform Hispanics, in the service of saving Mary Landrieu’s Senate career. As I am sure you know, President Obama had planned to implement a sweeping | Read More »
Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?
For the first time in several years the GOP has opened a polling lead on who voters trust more to handle immigration, a clear reaction to President Obama’s overreach on the issue. However, the responses indicate a more nuanced view of immigration policy than this headline might suggest: Now, 34 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races say they trust the | Read More »

Barack Obama chooses the worst possible partisan action on immigration issue.
I say this as a RiNO pro-amnesty squish: this decision is senseless. Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said. The move instantly infuriated immigration advocates while offering relief to some vulnerable Democrats in tough Senate re-election contests. …in no small | Read More »
The President is Treading on Very Dangerous Ground
What if, in the face of such constant pressure from amnesty supporters the Executive Branch simply refuses to enforce the law and keep aliens without right from entering the country – by the millions? At FAIR we feared this day might come.
