Great new Jeb Bush strategy: attack Trump

Desperate times call for desperate measures... or just for desperation. Via The Hill: Jeb Bush is trying to get off the mat and prove his mettle to the Republican Party ...

Rick Perry campaign on terminal trajectory

In what looks to be a metaphor for his campaign, Rick Perry got plenty of attention yesterday but it was only because Donald Trump was trolling him, and in the end it was a verbal gaffe by Perry that got more attention than his substantive response. Via The Hill: Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday gave a puzzling response to Donald Trump’s assertion that he is | Read More »

Hillary Clinton, Ashley Madison and the Strange Beauty of Karma

Hacktivism isn’t my favorite activity. I understand why people like Edward Snowden or Julian Assange do what they do. I even concede that they sometimes have a point. However, it often comes at a terrible negative externality cost. It happens because people who have significant power abuse that power when they feel immune from consequence. The only way to take them down is to go | Read More »

A Nation of Laws No More

When five largely unrepresentative and unaccountable people can decide to impose their moral values on a nation of 320 million, we really are not a nation of laws, but a nation of men. When clerks in Washington, D.C. can deny citizens access to guns, despite there being an individual, constitutional right, we really are not a nation of laws, but a nation of men. When | Read More »

The Establishment can’t even criticize Trump correctly

My distaste for Trump is well documented at this point, but when I read this evening about Hugh Hewitt’s interview of Donald Trump, I was struck by how terrible Hewitt’s whole line of questioning is. Hewitt – who gave Harriet Miers a “solid B+” and thought that was good enough – has essentially declared that Al Gore would have been a better President than George | Read More »

Obama’s gun law enforcement at work: sell 55 illegal guns, get one year probation

When Shannon Miles walked up behind Harris (TX) County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth and pumped 15 9mm rounds into him he did so with a weapon he was not allowed to possess. Via Houston Chronicle: Court records reveal that Miles had a lengthy criminal history. His first reported arrest came in February 2005 for failing to identify and giving false information to police officers. He | Read More »

How Ed Snowden helped Russia get a good choke hold on its own online dissidents.

“Why doth treason never prosper? Why, I’ll tell you the reason: for if it doth prosper, none DARE call it treason.”

Trump Signs Loyalty Pledge. So What?

The cable news networks are all breathlessly reporting that after a one-on-one meeting with Reince Priebus, Donald Trump has signed a pledge in which he promises to support the eventual Republican nominee, regardless of who it might be. I am sure that in the corridors of the RNC national headquarters, they are all slapping themselves on the back confident that eventually Trump will fade away | Read More »

Biden and Christie agree: Obama is responsible for deaths caused by Iran

Well, not in so many words but the effect is the same. One of the components of the Iran nuclear deal is that it gives Iran unconstrained access to well over $100 billion in cash. Another component of the deal is that even though Iran is on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terror, Iran’s support of terror was not an item of | Read More »
