    Police Try to Intimidate Google Out of Ruining their Speed Traps

    Police Try to Intimidate Google Out of Ruining their Speed Traps

    The nationwide police PR exploitation of the tragic deaths of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos continues apace. As we have already noted here before, the number of police who are killed by citizens wielding firearms is exceedingly low in the United States (especially as compared to the number of citizens who are shot by the police), and much lower than the incidence of officer deaths | Read More »

    Congressional GOP Seeks to Achieve Success Through Cowardice

    Congressional GOP Seeks to Achieve Success Through Cowardice

    Over at RealClearPolitics, liberal Bill Scher has some advice for the GOP for how they can grow their majority. Like most of these insipid pieces from liberals, it helpfully suggests that Republicans will have much more success if they ignore demands from their base about… well, basically everything. It’s always precious when a member of the party who just got trounced offers advice to the | Read More »

    Renee Ellmers is Wendy Davis with Less Panache

    Renee Ellmers is Wendy Davis with Less Panache

    It appears now that the House has permanently shelved the Pain-Capable Unborn Children Protection Act and that Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58% is largely to blame (although several other weak-spined Republicans do not deserve to be overlooked). For a frame of reference, this is the federal version of virtually the exact same bill that Wendy Davis became famous for filibustering. Wendy Davis’ | Read More »

    Renee Ellmers is Worse Than a Democrat

    Renee Ellmers is Worse Than a Democrat

    Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58% was swept into office in 2010 on a wave of Tea Party support and based on the fact that she had the good fortune to have a Democrat incumbent who let himself get videotaped assaulting some college kids. The video in question went nationally viral and Ellmers’ election became something of a cause celebre in conservative circles. | Read More »

    President Borat to Announce Trolling Agenda Tonight

    President Borat to Announce Trolling Agenda Tonight

    I am not going to watch the State of the Union Address tonight. My advice to you, if you want to live a happier and more well-informed life, is that you shouldn’t either. Whatever Barack Obama has to say tonight is completely irrelevant. None of it will become law. He has intentionally and irretrievably poisoned the well with the people who will run Congress over | Read More »

    Sally Kohn Has Helpful Advice for the GOP

    Sally Kohn Has Helpful Advice for the GOP

    Sally Kohn took a break yesterday from her busy schedule of running the public relations campaign for the Charlie Hedbo terrorists and penned an article with some helpful advice for the GOP. You are never going to believe what Sally Kohn thinks is a great idea for the Republicans who just summarily rousted the Democrats from power – taxing the rich: But increasingly, especially in the | Read More »

    “Hate Speech” is not “Any Speech You Hate”

    "Hate Speech" is not "Any Speech You Hate"

    Last week, Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain wrote an op-ed in the Nashville Tennessean about the Charlie Hedbo attacks. The basic thesis of Professor Swain’s article, which was published in a non-Vanderbilt sanctioned publication and written on her own time, is that present-day Islam is incompatible with Western values like free speech and religious pluralism. The most inflammatory portion of Prof. Swain’s article is doubtless | Read More »

    Fiorina 2016: A Campaign Without a Raison D’être

    Fiorina 2016: A Campaign Without a Raison D'être

    In a year in which the GOP promises to field its strongest field of qualified and experienced candidates in a generation, and in which there promises to be a veritable buffet of viable options for establishment and movement conservatives alike, for some reason the existence of Carly Fiorina’s bizarrely pointless 2016 campaign continues to be a story worth reporting on for the political media. The usual | Read More »

    Governor Throne of Skulls (Scott Walker) Telegraphs 2016 Bid

    Governor Throne of Skulls (Scott Walker) Telegraphs 2016 Bid

    With the three establishment-favored Governors (Jeb, Christie, Romney) having already all but declared, the time has come for other contenders to telegraph their intentions or face being left behind in the fundraising/operations cycle. One of my two favorite candidates for 2016 has always been Scott Walker, but the looming question has always been whether Walker would run at all given that a campaign would interfere | Read More »

    I’m for Same Sex Marriage, but Against What Happened to Kelvin Cochran

    I'm for Same Sex Marriage, but Against What Happened to Kelvin Cochran

    I have always envied people who are able to approach the issue of same-sex marriage as though it were an easy or simplistic issue. Personally, with respect to this issue, I have always wrestled with two very strong and competing political impulses. The first is an impulse borne of the belief that tradition is necessary to a well-ordered society and that absent compelling evidence, it | Read More »

    A Divided Establishment, For a Change

    A Divided Establishment, For a Change

    The last week has brought some welcome news for conservatives who are hoping to see a movement conservative nominated in 2016. First, Jeb Bush made it all but official that he will run by filing paperwork for his leadership PAC. Then it became apparent that Mitt Romney in all likelihood also intends to run in 2016. Not to be outdone, news leaked yesterday that America’s | Read More »

    The Last Garrison of Defense for Obama’s Legacy is Manned by Jonathan Chait

    The Last Garrison of Defense for Obama's Legacy is Manned by Jonathan Chait

    Writing in New York Magazine, former TNR stooge Jonathan Chait writes, somewhat counter intuitively, that History will be “Very Kind” to Obama’s legacy. This assertion comes ironically juxtaposed with the virtually universal blistering criticism Obama is receiving even from his most vociferous defenders (like Mike Lupica) for having failed to send even an administration representative (nevermind the President himself) to the anti-terror rally in Paris | Read More »
