E-mailgate is Dead! Long live E-mailgate!
David Brock penned a brief column over at USA Today that is about as David Brock as it gets. If anyone was wondering why the Republicans have stoked this e-mail controversy, you now have your answer: the investigation into the Benghazi tragedy is all but dead and this is a desperate gambit to keep it alive in the 2016 elections. Millions of taxpayer dollars have | Read More »
A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
Human Trafficking vs. Taxpayer-Funded Abortion
The Democrats are really working hard to remain genuinely awful, and a bill that fights human trafficking is their latest attempt to do so. Senate Democrats are threatening to pull their support from a bipartisan anti-trafficking bill set for Senate action this week. They are infuriated over an abortion-related provision that Democrats say was slipped in without their knowledge. The legislation passed the Senate Judiciary | Read More »
Jindal to… raise revenue?
I will be the first to admit that the “conservative media” in Louisiana is often just looking to find flaws in anyone so they can build themselves up as a better conservative than a politician. Good for readership or ratings or whatever. However, I have to look at this move by Bobby Jindal and wonder if it is really the best move to make. After | Read More »
You Will Be Made To Accept
A bit of a deviation from Erick’s noted mantra, but hey, we’re all deviants at some level. Except for this guy, apparently… [Yvette Cormier] went to the front desk after someone who looked like a “man” entered the women’s locker room while she was changing. “I wanted to know why there was a man in the women’s locker room,” she told CNN. “He looked like a | Read More »
Secession in the U.S.?
Via The Economist: The towns are in New York’s Southern Tier. They sit on top of the Marcellus Shale, which is full of natural gas. New Yorkers, unlike their Pennsylvanian neighbours, are not allowed to tap the gas because of a state ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) announced by Andrew Cuomo, the governor, on December 17th. Hours later on the same day, a state panel | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s e-mails at State Department were entirely private #2016
This is cause for some concern. WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides | Read More »
The Church of Public Opinion
The world is a strange place, and often times we see some of the strangest things getting worshipped as gods that bestow their graces upon their idolators. The Left is prone to this – having moved into a secularist worldview, they give up God and turn toward things of the world. They worship the environment, government, and leaders who espouse their views like Barack Obama. | Read More »
Rahm’s struggle for power
In case you didn’t know, Chicago mayor and Obama ally Rahm Emanuel is up for re-election and… it actually isn’t looking very good. Emanuel has mounted an extremely expensive, high-powered push to get past 50 percent of the vote—the threshold he needs to win reelection outright and avoid an April 7 runoff. The X-factor in the race seems to be black voters, so Emanuel has | Read More »
The DNC 2014 Autopsy
The Democratic National Committee has released the 2014 Autopsy. It is nine pages long. In 2013, the GOP released its autopsy. It was 100 pages long, mocked by the left, and in 2014, the GOP handed a historic spanking to the Democrats. The DNC report details what went wrong and what they need to do to fix it… Well, they did half of that. They | Read More »
Media suddenly interested in vetting candidates’ college years
Scott Walker has come from out of nowhere (if you weren’t paying attention), survived three elections in four years as a Republican in a blue state, and is making waves with statements and policies that drive the Left insane. However, there is one thing that makes Walker different from other potential presidential candidates – he never finished college. And, the college life of a presidential | Read More »
No such thing as “political correctness?” Ask Goldonna, Louisiana.
Chances are you’ve never heard of Goldonna, Louisiana. Chances are you might not be able to pronounce the name of the Louisiana parish it’s in. But you can almost certainly believe they’ve felt the sting of political correctness in recent weeks. GOLDONNA –The recent 10-day suspension of a Natchitoches Parish school principal because of a student-led prayer during a Christmas program was the catalyst for | Read More »
In their house at R’lyeh, billionaire Kochs wait spending
After word came out that Koch-affiliated groups plan to spend thirteen gazillion dollars in the 2016 election, several media outlets cried foul. Ron Fournier had a piece concerning the evils of dark money: Now we have the worst of all worlds: Gobs of money showered over Democratic and Republican candidates with precious little transparency. The 2016 presidential campaign will give rise to the next grim | Read More »
Discomfort with Activist Sex Scenes
I was always hesitant to watch the show “Modern Family.” I was worried about how much of it was activist television and how much was actual comedy. To be fair, calling it “Modern Family” and having a gay couple with an adopted child is pushing the cause just a little bit, but that’s Hollywood for you. However, when I watched the show, I discovered something. | Read More »
