@Politico continues to shill for the Obama administration
Of late, Politico is showing the same reliability as The Onion… or maybe less. Earlier in the week I wrote about the alleged pending boycott of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress, Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not. In it I referenced a Politico article that purports to cover a plan by Democrats to boycott the speech rather | Read More »
Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not
This really isn’t news. I mean they are Democrats. And boycotting American allies is just how they roll. Politico does the stenography job for the White House in a story titled Democrats might skip Benjamin Netanyahu speech Dozens of House Democrats are privately threatening to skip the March 3 address, according to lawmakers and aides, in what’s become the lowest point of a relationship between | Read More »
Looking Like Washington Instead of America
I would have titled it differently, but I have a piece up at the Politico, at their request, about the election. Earlier today, Republican leaders said they were going to use the election as justification to themselves that voters were rejecting the tea party in favor of guys who look and think like Washington Republicans. There’s just one problem — running as “we’re not Barack | Read More »
Lois Lerner Isn’t Lying
Torquemada Was Proud Of His Day Job As Well… “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”HT:Politico So Politico is as Politico does. If Attila the Hun wore the D Jersey; they’d be praising his leadership secrets. | Read More »
Dear World: The President is inconvenienced.
All eyes are currently on Ferguson, MO., as the Democratic governor finally decides to do something, setting up state law enforcement to take control of the situation and keeping local enforcement only on standby. Prior to this, a heavily militarized Ferguson police force was really doing no one in the law enforcement community a favor when they suited up in heavier-than-normal protection (they looked like | Read More »
Bad Roger Simon calls National Guardsmen child-killers. …Does Politico agree? @politico
Let me explain the entire good/bad thing. There’s Roger Simon, over at Pajamas Media. I generally call him ‘Good’ Roger Simon, because that way I can distinguish him from the Roger Simon over at Politico, who I used to typically call ‘Bad’ Roger Simon. Only now I’m just going to call Bad Roger Simon nothing but Bad Roger Simon, on the basis of this particular | Read More »
Will Hispanic Voters Prevent Republicans From Winning the White House?
Re-posted from National Review Recently Steve Schmidt, a well-known GOP strategist who was John McCain’s 2008 presidential-campaign manager, said that Republicans need to capture at least 40 percent of the national Hispanic vote if the GOP is ever going to win back the White House. Is the current political environment making it even more difficult for the GOP to achieve that 40 percent benchmark | Read More »
Jim Hinch and the Politico Get Off On Another Evangelical Fantasy
Evangelicals are beginning to support gay marriage. That is what Jim Hinch claims in the Politico. His evidence? A liberal Methodist church, the declining mainline Presbyterian Church (USA), and a lady who left a Methodist Church for a UCC Church. Anyone who knows anything about Christianity in America knows the Methodists, PCUSA, and UCC are not evangelical churches. Oh, but there is that one preacher | Read More »
Is America REALLY Becoming a Third World Nation?
Recently, I happened to read three articles on different websites about three completely different topics. Later I realized how these unrelated pieces, together, weaved a dark tapestry of seemingly insurmountable challenges for a nation about to celebrate its 238th birthday. Here are the three headlines: 1. More Than Two-Thirds of American Youth Wouldn’t Qualify for Service, Pentagon Says (Wall Street Journal) 2. In Fairfax County | Read More »
Colin Kahl Pens a CYA Op-Ed on Iraq
Colin Kahl, according to his little bio on his Politico op-ed, “is an associate professor in Georgetown University’s Security Studies Program…. From February 2009 to December 2011, he was the U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East.” In other words, during the time Joe Biden was hailing Iraq as some sort of success story for Barack Obama, Colin Kahl was one of | Read More »
You won’t BELIEVE just how furiously Politico spun this #DCCC #Obamacare memo!
Background: Politico has acquired a memo (which they did not share, shockingly*) from presumably the DCCC that describes the strategy, for lack of a better word, of the Democratic party with regard to Obamacare. Essentially, they’re going to: …[t]ell voters Republicans would make the problem worse — raising prescription drug prices, empowering insurance companies and even endangering domestic violence victims. The battle plan, details of | Read More »
Douglas Ruskkoff And The Luddite Left
Wow! I thought I was the political reactionary. When did Archie Bunker register as a moss-backed Democrat and start work at some predictably Lysenkian font of mainstream media bed-pan wisdom? This apparently took place because Progressive jet-fuel geniuses have just now figured out that a free-flow of information will make it harder for them to control what people are currently thinking or what they say.
I’ve just read an example of this Progressive Neo-Reaction in a Politico Magazine article entitled “How Technology Killed The Future.” Author Douglas Ruskkoff, like the PTSDed space marine in the movie “Aliens” tells us its game over. He explains the nature of our ineffable damnation below.

The result for institutions—especially political ones—has been profound. This transformation has dramatically degraded the ability of political operatives to set long-term plans. Thrown off course, they’re now often left simply to react to the incoming barrage of events as they unfold. Gone, suddenly, is the quaint notion of “controlling the narrative”—the flood of information is often far too unruly.
Obama at DreamWorks in La La Land Today Speaking About (Fairytale) Economy
Credit: Drudge Report Politico reports: Obama is set to speak on the economy at DreamWorks’s Los Angeles-area headquarters on Tuesday. Which leads me to ask: Is Obama living his own fairytale today? Consider this: We have a president created by the media and funded by Hollywood who is speaking at DreamWorks headquarters in La La Land. He is expected to talk about how | Read More »
Can We Have A Rational Discussion About The Virginia Governor Race?
The Virginia Gubernatorial Race Proves the GOP is Suicidal If a national election were held in a test kitchen, it would resemble Tuesday’s Virginia gubernatorial election. The race between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli is a rich stew of national personalities and issues, consumed by Virginia voters with “tastes” similar to voter groups nationwide. That’s why the media will see this off-year election | Read More »
