    Let’s Burn Kris Kobach at the Stake

    This is getting hypocritically ridiculous.You probably don’t know who Kris Kobach is, but you need to. Kobach is a law professor at the University of Missouri and helped put together Arizona’s immigration law. You know that law right? The one a majority of Americans agree with? Well, to heck with tenure, folks are out to get Kobach. Chris Salazar, UMKC alum, said, “As an individual, | Read More »

    Morning Musings

    In order to keep the Morning Briefing short, I’m breaking out my morning musings into this separate post.

He is somehow connected, or believed to be connected, to the Times Square car bomb. Whaaa . . . ? | Read More »

    Arizona Gets it Right on Illegal Immigration

    James Edwards has the top story at Human Events today on Arizona’s immigration law the left is hyperventilating about. Exercising its sovereign right under the Constitution’s 10th Amendment, Arizona has enacted a law empowering its state and local police officers to use suspected illegal immigrant status as a crime-fighting tool. The law, which GOP Gov. Jan Brewer signed April 23, uses state police authority to | Read More »

    Mark Levin and Jim Manzi

    I have no clue who Jim Manzi is and after today I hope to go back to having no clue who he is. As Hogan noted this morning, the guy apparently went to National Review Online and attacked National Review’s most successful author, Mark Levin. Now Mark does not need me or anyone else to defend him from the cocktail conservative brigade of the Trig | Read More »

Well, I do, and I forever remain guilty that I’m the guy getting the check living off the fine writing of others in this community.

    Media Matters ADMITS Barack Obama Has Bribed Congressman Jim Matheson

    Media Matters, doing its typical shilling for the Obama Administration, threw up some lame talking points about Barack Obama appointing Scott Matheson, brother of Congressman Jim Matheson, to the federal bench. The right has pointed out it has the appearance of bribery. Today, trying to refute the accusation, Media Matters gives away the game. Casually in defending the appointment, Media Matters notes Scott Matheson told | Read More »

    The Leader

    Many, many reporters have asked me who the leader of the conservative movement is right now or who the leader of the tea party movement is. They rarely report the answer, though they should be paying attention to it. In the CPAC straw poll, one name dominated the pack. With the highest favorable ratings (73%) and lowest unfavorable ratings (8%), Senator Jim DeMint of South | Read More »

    CPAC Straw Poll: Ron Paul Wins. CPAC Winner Rarely Get the Eventual GOP Nomination

    For three straight years Mitt Romney won the CPAC straw poll — 2007, 2008, and 2009. In the key year of 2008, despite his win, John McCain was the nominee. This year, Ron Paul breaks Mitt Romney’s winning streak. Clearly Romney realized he was not getting a good return on his investment of organizing voters to vote — a regular phenomenon among potential candidates. 2,395 | Read More »

    Ryan’s Roadmap

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. Yes, George W. Bush spent too much and proved redundantly that the term “big government conservative” is an oxymoron. And yes, when Bush left office our economy was in trouble.  But how long will Obama claim that the only way for our economy to recover is to continue a spending spree that will leave us | Read More »
