    Greg Sargent Inadvertently Proves the Halbig Plaintiffs’ Case

    Greg Sargent Inadvertently Proves the Halbig Plaintiffs' Case

    Partisan hack and Washington Post writer Greg Sargent has allegedly found a silver bullet that proves that the Halbig decision is erroneous and that the Halbig plaintiffs don’t have a leg to stand on. The gist of Sargent’s point is that an earlier version of the Obamacare bill had language that explicitly provided for subsidies for beneficiaries on Federal exchanges, even though the final version of | Read More »

    New CBS/NYT Poll Shows Possible GOP Senate Wave Forming

    New CBS/NYT Poll Shows Possible GOP Senate Wave Forming

    A new CBS/NYT poll has been released which is thus far the most exhaustive simultaneous battleground poll that has been taken this election season. It shows Republicans holding all their “close” seats, with McConnell leading Grimes 50-46 and Perdue leading Nunn 50-44. Obviously, these races are still very competitive and could flip although I think that as time goes along Perdue will pull away from | Read More »

    The Moronic “Inversions” Drumbeat Grows Louder

    The Moronic "Inversions" Drumbeat Grows Louder

    Somewhere in the bowels of the festering Democrat political machine, some focus group automaton has decided that “closing the inversions tax loophole” is a message that can save Democrats from destruction in 2014. By way of background, America has an astronomically high corporate taxation rate compared to the rest of the world; so what some American companies are doing is merging with overseas companies and | Read More »

    Will the Chamber of Commerce Back Democrat Mary Landrieu?

    Will the Chamber of Commerce Back Democrat Mary Landrieu?

    Avowed enemy of conservatives and champion of corporate welfare the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is reportedly contemplating backing Democrat Mary Landrieu over Bill Cassidy in the LA Senate race. Per the Hill, New York Times columnist Joe Nocera may have inadvertently leaked plans on the part of the Chamber to back Landrieu this November. Per other reports on Twitter, the Chamber is still staying mum | Read More »

    The Democrats Have Abandoned Populism

    The Democrats Have Abandoned Populism

    Salon justifiably takes a lot of flack around these parts for the many insane things they print, but this this piece by Bill Curry is worth a read as a damning indictment of the Democrats’ wholesale abandonment of populism in favor big business corporate donations. Some of Curry’s piece is rank with revisionist history that should be expected from a lifetime partisan Democrat but it | Read More »

    Libya Implodes While the Press Fiddles

    Libya Implodes While the Press Fiddles

    It seems like almost forever in one sense since the media were treating American citizens to literally daily updates with the number of people killed in terrorist attacks in Iraq. Every IED explosion, every infrastructure failure, every rise in terrorist activity was the subject of a major feature splash. During the course of the 2008 election, the Republican candidates were repeatedly beaten about the head | Read More »

    CNN: The Question of Whether Hamas is Using Human Shields is “Complicated.”

    CNN: The Question of Whether Hamas is Using Human Shields is "Complicated."

    Via CNN.com today comes this truly astounding article that purports to leave the question of whether Hamas is using human shields in Gaza up in the air. The opening four paragraphs here set the stage for the accusation that Israel is using the “human shield” argument as a PR ploy of questionable factual validity: Tuesday’s discovery of rockets hidden in a vacant U.N. facility is | Read More »

    Salon Attempts to Paint Avowed Communist Lee Harvey Oswald as a “Right-Winger”

    Salon Attempts to Paint Avowed Communist Lee Harvey Oswald as a "Right-Winger"

    Via Salon today comes one of the most truly bizarre pieces of revisionist history I have ever seen, even within the context of articles appearing at Salon. The basic outline of the piece is as follows: Dallas in 1963 was full of crazy right-wingers; These people had guns; John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas in 1963; Barack Obama likewise has many right-wingers who oppose | Read More »

    What is Obama Hiding at His Wealthy Donor Fundraisers?

    What is Obama Hiding at His Wealthy Donor Fundraisers?

    A common complaint about George W. Bush’s second term is that he was “insulated” and cut off from the outside world, and increasingly so from what he perceived to be a hostile press. This alleged isolation caused many liberal commentators to begin to derisively refer to President Bush as a “Bubble Boy.”  It has taken considerably longer for the press to openly criticize Obama for | Read More »

    E.J. Dionne’s Unseemly Whinging About the Judiciary Continues Apace

    E.J. Dionne's Unseemly Whinging About the Judiciary Continues Apace

    In 1973, nine unelected judges (all men), overturned almost two hundred years of unbroken precedent and historical practice and declared that there existed in the United States Constitution a heretofore undiscovered constitutional right to an abortion. They did this despite the fact that nothing in the text of the Constitution even hinted at the existence of such a right, and that for hundreds of years | Read More »

    Reminder: The Chamber of Commerce is an Ideological and Political Enemy to Conservatives

    Reminder: The Chamber of Commerce is an Ideological and Political Enemy to Conservatives

    The Chamber of Commerce has long been thought to be an ally of the GOP, by and large. They have made it clear during the course of the current fight for the soul of the GOP, however, that they are mostly an ally of crony capitalism and corporate welfare and those who enable it, and committed opponents of grassroots conservatives. The Chamber of Commerce pumped | Read More »

    The Left’s Pre-Emptive SCOTUS Bashing Over Halbig

    The Left's Pre-Emptive SCOTUS Bashing Over Halbig

    Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo knows almost nothing about the law, as any lawyer who has read his material over the years can attest. He’s not an attorney, has never been one, doesn’t have a law degree, and so far as I know has never even taken a law class. Nor is he an expert or seasoned SCOTUS-watcher of any sort. He has literally no basis | Read More »

Below the fold I’ll be providing regular updates on the event for those who were not able to attend in theaters tonight to hear the information on how to defeat this Federal intrusion into education.

    The Chaotic Belief Systems of Millenials

    The Chaotic Belief Systems of Millenials

    Winston Churchill once famously quipped, “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain.” This is an important mantra to keep in mind when analyzing the fight for the political mind of the much-maligned millenial generation in light of Reason’s most recent survey on Millenials’ attitudes about government. Although Millenials still tend | Read More »

    The Politicization of Science in the Media

    The Politicization of Science in the Media

    Via RealClearScience today comes a stark reminder that there is literally no such thing about which the media is a truly objective reporter these days. It reminds me yet again of this quote from the late great Michael Crichton about the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect: Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. | Read More »
