    The Associated Press Takes Sides Again

    Consistent with the operations of the 29% fringe political elites who have no problem with the Ground Zero mosque, the Associated Press has ordered a full stop on usage of “Ground Zero Mosque.” We should continue to avoid the phrase “ground zero mosque” or “mosque at ground zero” on all platforms. (We’ve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other | Read More »

    Flaming Hypocrisy and the Convenient Constitutionalists of the Fringe Political Elite

    For weeks on end the political elite in this country and their sycophants have told us we must support the Ground Zero Mosque because our founding principles demand it. This fringe group, no larger than the birthers or 9/11 Truthers and smaller than the mainstream group called the “tea party movement” the fringe political elite has labeled fringe, are not afraid to tell you that | Read More »

    The Growing Detachment of the Political Class

    I hate to keep harping on this topic, but it is so very relevant to the present political discussion. The political class and its sycophants — and I want to be clear here that this is bipartisan and, to a degree, across ideological lines — has grown hopelessly out of touch with the rest of America. The political class that supports things like the Ground | Read More »

    It is that time

    I have an announcement to make. Set your clocks for 7pm ET this Friday.In my ongoing quest to become competent enough to maybe one day sit behind a certain golden microphone, I’ve kept guest hosting here in Macon.On Friday, however, I’ll be headed up to Atlanta to sit in for Herman Cain on his radio show.

    It is time to get off the fence and support Pamela Gorman

    There are so many candidates running in AZ-03 to replace John Shadegg that fundraising is tough unless your last name is Quayle. Pamela Gorman has up what might amount to a closing argument after a great grassroots campaign.This reflects exactly why I’m supporting Pamela Gorman. Unlike every single other candidate in that race, Pamela Gorman has bled for cause. She stood up to Democrats. She | Read More »

    The Elite Become Fringe. We Will Remember Come November

    “The same people who have dedicated the entire year to proclaiming the tea party movement ‘fringe’ suddenly find themselves fringe.” I’ve written about this before. Let me pretty much repeat myself because it is vitally relevant here.I cannot tell you the number of reporters at major networks and newspapers who will, in private moments, admit there is a real bias in the media. That bias | Read More »

    Nancy Pelosi Joins the Fringe Mosquerade

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have come through the looking glass. Tonight on KCBS radio in San Francisco, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi began calls for investigations into opponents of the Ground Zero mosque. Aligning herself with the fringe — a group of people no larger than those who think 9/11 was an inside job and those who think Barack Obama is a foreign born | Read More »

    Sensibilities and the Ground Zero Mosque

    Here’s me on John King USA last night talking about this issue.

    The Democrats’ Disaster: More Americans Question Barack Obama’s Birth Story Than Support the Ground Zero Mosque

    UPDATE: I’ve looked at more numbers. Consider this: the percentage of people who think 9/11 was an inside job is equal to the percentage of people who think the Ground Zero mosque is a good idea.—– “Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a man whose first reaction to the Time Square bombing plot was to blame people upset about Obamacare passing, has ceded being the face of that | Read More »

    Democrats Fall Back on the Same Tired Lies From 1994

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting this morning, “Congress’s hot August recess has begun with rhetoric to match, with Democrats pummeling Republicans for wanting to trim Social Security, and Republicans hammering Democrats for favoring tax increases.”Likewise, CNN notes, “Democrats pledged Friday to not only keep Social Security in place, but use the historic program against Republicans ahead of the midterm election.”Moderate Republicans in Congress will | Read More »
