Here comes the next big corporate bailout?
In the past we’ve seen large, well-connected businesses run into trouble, and then run to government to keep afloat and unafraid of competition. The airlines do it, GM did it, the banks did it, and every time Democrats and establishment Republicans oblige. We appear to have found the next industry cozy with politicians that’s going to ask for one.
Inventors Pass Away – Let’s Make Sure Invention Never Does
Fame is a distorting and highly overrated quality – as the late, great David Bowie knew so well. Especially now in the Internet Age – when everyone shares publicly every tiny facet of their existence. Especially now in the Omni-Media Age – in which was born the phrase “Famous for being famous” (See: Kardashians). But the things that allow people to achieve and maintain fame | Read More »
Why Would Team Cruz Raise New Hampshire Expectations?
His messaging in that first hour and going through the debate, was remarkable that’ going resonate on Tuesday. But I’m gonna be very curious to see when Senator Cruz out produces expectations and comes in a first second third place, if he’s gonna get the same kind of press.

New Hampshire: The Establishment Enters the Thunderdome
A lot of people will be deceiving themselves before this day is done, but don’t let anyone deceive you: there are only three tickets (at most) out of New Hampshire, and Donald Trump and Ted Cruz already own two of them. Since 1968, no candidate has ever won the nomination without winning either Iowa or New Hampshire. The unique political phenomenon that is Donald Trump might allow that to | Read More »
Marco Rubio Guilty of Using Rhetorical Device Taught To Middle School Students
Marco Rubio has been hammered pretty hard since Saturday night about sounding “too robotic” to be a viable candidate. The basis for this accusation was his repetition of the idea that Barack Obama isn’t someone ignorant of what he’s doing to the country. He is maliciously doing exactly what he planned to do all along. He was called out on this by Chris Christie in | Read More »
Donald Trump Just Called Ted Cruz ‘A P*ssy’ [VIDEO]
His supporters are going to say “no he didn’t, he just told you what someone else called him.” But that’s because those people are dishonest and think you are stupid. He called him a pussy, in as snidely and as “cute” a way as possible. And yes, just like his F-bomb from the weekend that he lied about, he said it aloud, into a microphone, | Read More »
Conservative Horror Film ‘The Bound’ to Confront Radical Feminist Anti-Masculinity Harpies
You know what they hate? Being called harpies. It’s sexist, you see, because you aren’t allowed to insult someone from a protected gender. And that’s part of the problem isn’t it? Take a look: My friend and fellow Truth Revolt writer Paul Bois has new project out this month, a film, that confronts the radical feminist (read: anti-male) movement in the United States. It’s a | Read More »
Obama Shoots Himself in the Foot on Trade Bill
While there’s no doubt that in a lot of ways, Obama is successful as a president in that he set out to reshape the country in his image and has succeeded in frightening ways, there have also been several examples Obama being a fairly incompetent leader who is prone to shoot himself and the country as a whole in the foot. Case in point: In order to try | Read More »

Make America Awesome
As the Republican primary season kicks into high gear, a debate is playing out among various groups as to how one effectively takes down Donald Trump. Dave Weigel writes about this, live from New Hampshire, at the Washington Post, covering an ad that Rick Wilson and I created for the anti-Trump SuperPAC, Make America Awesome. In essence, as Weigel notes, there are two theories about how | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Blasts Chris Christie, Says Rubio Was RIGHT About Obama
‘Chris Christie is loser’ was my alternate title. Not a quote, but it is the basic message from Rush Limbaugh on his show today: Obama does know what he is doing. After a weekend of petty Republican back-stabbing, it’s about time someone showed the sense and backbone to say it. It’s a four minute clip so far too much for a full transcript. If you | Read More »
Jeb Bush: I’m Not Big On That First Amendment Crap

Shorter Kasich: ‘I’m to the left of Hillary.’
I get that New Hampshire is not exactly a bastion of conservative thought. A Republican hasn’t held the state in the general election in almost 16 years. I also get that John Kasich has not pretended to be anything like what is traditionally called a conservative. In fact, he claims to be some kind of “new” conservative which, if history is a guide for candidates | Read More »
