A White House Win That Isn’t Worth Having
The “get in line” mantra from the GOP higher-ups and talking heads continues, and it is very tiresome. For those like RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, winning matters more than anything. He’ll happily ride the coattails of any candidate – even Trump – to get there, no matter the cost. Needless to say, this is extremely foolish. With the GOP front-runner, we have a flip-flopping liberal whose | Read More »
White House Literally Says We Owe IRS Chief Who Targeted Conservatives ‘OUR GRATITUDE’! [VIDEO]
You’re doing a heckuva job, clownie. Josh Earnest might as well have said that at a White House press briefing this week when asked about pressure to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen from Republicans in the House, and he doubled down on the embattled tax collector. It is ridiculous for Republicans in Congress, who seek to gut funding for the IRS — in some cases, | Read More »
White House Censoring Out French President’s Use Of the Word “Islamic Terrorist”
The censoring trend doesn’t just stop at social justice warriors, and Twitter. Apparently the White House wants in on the game, and it’s more than happy to censor foreign world leaders in order to keep the narrative on track.

Man, lame duck administrations really start phoning it in, don’t they? That chuckle is classic ASFDASFASFDSDFA. OR IS IT SOMETHING FAR MORE SINISTER? Probably not sinister. I just thought I’d bring a little humor into your lives as the world burns down around us.
I Wonder Why the Pentagon is Upset
The Pentagon is a wee bit angry at the White House. I mean, war is literally their job, and the White House has been talking about and doing war stuff without them. They don’t feel included. “There’s a level of dissatisfaction among the uniformed military that I’ve never seen in my time here,” said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman in an interview. “For some of | Read More »
Ditching Washington’s Red Carpet

Tech at Night: Obama misses the point on Cybersecurity
They tell me it’s a very good thing Obama did, threatening to send the hackers to the cornfield. Or at least to take their stuff. But I’m not sure in practice it’ll matter much since, you know, the attackers are abroad. We can’t even get Edward Snowden, but Russia can get into Obama’s servers. What good is Obama’s order going to do?
The White House and their false claims of deficit busting, in one handy picture.
Short version: use this image against would-be Democratic deficit busters. Longer version: the White House is trying to have its own facts, again. At issue is their recent attempt to brag that the deficit for 2014 has been reduced to a ‘mere’ 2.8% of GDP. As Twitchy ably notes/rebutted in response, that would be great, except for two minor little problems: The debt is still | Read More »
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 »
White House takes geography lessons from Vox.com
In a briefing for reporters prior to Obama’s speech Wednesday night one “Senior Administration Official” made this statement: SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: I guess I would just add one thing on the coalition question — and I think this is important to really focus on, which is to say, in discussions with governments in the region, notably the Saudis and the Jordanians, what is clear | Read More »
Greta van Susteren: White House Pressured Fox News to Back Down on Benghazi
A lot of you probably caught Fox News’ special this past weekend “13 Hours at Benghazi”. As you might imagine, the White House is none too pleased with the special. Between it and the House Benghazi Committee’s upcoming first public hearing on September 14, the Obama administration is clearly feeling the heat on the issue. On Friday, Greta van Susteren spoke on her show about how | Read More »
Playing the Game Badly
President Obama has been really great at winning his own election. We have to give credit where it is due. He has beaten our side twice. But it really is rather spectacular just how bad he is at so much of the rest of the game of politics. And, on this point, I think it should be said that it is not really him, so | Read More »
