    What is Donald Trump's Ceiling?

    There is no doubt that the Republican race right now has come down to Donald Trump vs. everyone else. The latest Q-Poll shows Trump with 28%, followed by a large pack of candidates including Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, Jeb Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, Carly Fiorina, and John Kasich, who are separated by statistically insignificant | Read More »

    The Creation of an Illegal Indicant

    The Creation of an Illegal Indicant

    One of the most effective ways liberals win debates in the public square is to declare that certain words and phrases that resonate with the general public are illegal or off limits in polite discussion. They are attempting this with no small measure of success in the abortion arena by essentially wiping with word “abortion” out of the public debate in favor of “reproductive health | Read More »

    Reminder: Democrats Care More about Grabbing Guns Than About Victims of Violence

    Reminder: Democrats Care More about Grabbing Guns Than About Victims of Violence

    About fifteen minutes after the news broke of the tragic on-air shooting of two local CBS reporters in Roanoke, the presumptive Democratic nominee for President took to Twitter and started campaigning off the tragedy:   Heartbroken and angry. We must act to stop gun violence, and we cannot wait any longer. Praying for the victims’ families in Virginia. -H — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 26, | Read More »

    #BustRacism: Remove the Bust of Racist Margaret Sanger from the National Portrait Gallery

    #BustRacism: Remove the Bust of Racist Margaret Sanger from the National Portrait Gallery

    The National Portrait Gallery is a publicly funded Smithsonian Museum. Recently, they erected a bust of Margaret Sanger as part of their “struggle for justice” exhibit. I am not sure what justice Margaret Sanger is alleged to have struggled for, but I do know that she was a virulent racist who believed that black people should be prevented from breeding at pretty much all costs. | Read More »

    Joe Biden: The Democrats’ Great White Dope

    Joe Biden: The Democrats' Great White Dope

    Hillary Clinton’s anticipated 2016 coronation ceremony has so far gone as disastrously as a Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl halftime show performed aboard the Hindenburg. As Hillary finds herself modeling prison orange pantsuits during the middle of a possible criminal investigation of her email practices, the façade of her invulnerability has crumbled to dust. Her prospects have faded so thoroughly that she now finds herself | Read More »

    Further Thoughts on the Trump/Ramos Flap

    Further Thoughts on the Trump/Ramos Flap

    Last night I wrote a post on the bizarre Donald Trump presser last night that has gotten quite a bit of traction on social media. I wrote it immediately after watching the press conference and without the benefit of the full audio which has been made available today of Ramos’ comments. All I could hear at the time was Trump’s comments, which made it appear | Read More »

    The Awesome, Terrible Majesty of a Donald Trump Press Conference

    The Awesome, Terrible Majesty of a Donald Trump Press Conference

    Donald Trump just held a press conference prior to a speech in Iowa which was – and I say this without exaggeration – the most bizarre thing I have seen in a lifetime of following politics. It was at once an illustration of why the media fixates on him, and also why the other candidates in the race cannot deal with him. He opened the | Read More »

    Trump’s Hispanic Voter Problem

    Trump's Hispanic Voter Problem

    Let’s say this right up front: one doesn’t have to be “soft” on illegal immigration to win Hispanic voters – and no bloc of voters is worth publicly embracing a disastrous policy or one that would be injurious to the nation as a whole. That having been said, things like tone and emphasis matter within the context of this complex debate, and the tone Trump | Read More »

    Rand Paul and the Kentucky GOP: Bribery or Blackmail?

    Rand Paul and the Kentucky GOP: Bribery or Blackmail?

    It looks like the long-running saga between Rand Paul and the Kentucky GOP has at long last come to an end. For those who don’t know, Rand Paul has been struggling for quite a long time to get around a (somewhat silly) Kentucky law that prevents him from being on two different ballots at the same time, thus effectively preventing him from running for the | Read More »

    #BlackMonday is Here. Hold On to Your Butts.

    #BlackMonday is Here. Hold On to Your Butts.

    Over the weekend, there were rumblings of a possible market panic when the opening bell rung on Monday, and it looks at this point like those have come to fruition. The Chinese markets plunged 8.5% which has triggered a global market selloff. The U.S. Markets open in about 10 minutes and futures are already down 600-700 points. Obviously it’s too early to know the full | Read More »

    Donald Trump and Eminent Domain

    Donald Trump and Eminent Domain

    I wrote earlier this week that voters who are expressing a preference for Trump, Carson and Fiorina are committing a critical error in their thinking – they are forgetting that every candidate runs as an outsider their first election, and that 95% of those candidates eventually become corrupted by the lure of power. I argued then that the relevant test is how a candidate stands | Read More »

    Don’t Conflate a Choice With an Obligation

    Don't Conflate a Choice With an Obligation

    Allow me, if you will, to take a break from talking about Hillary’s email, Donald Trump, or anything relating to 2016 to discuss (yet again) our attitude toward the police. Specifically, I would like to respond to this opinion column that was carried in the Dallas Morning News last week, which was written by a man named Michael J. LaRosa, who seems from all accounts | Read More »

    Houston, Hillary Has a Problem

    Houston, Hillary Has a Problem

    The received wisdom on both sides of the aisle has long been that, whatever private and anonymous fretting you might read about from alleged high level Democrat insiders, we should all assume that Hillary is going to get the Democrat nomination until and and unless she either a) is pronounced dead by a physician that you know personally or b) the final gavel of the | Read More »

    In Search of the Wisconsin Version of Scott Walker

    In Search of the Wisconsin Version of Scott Walker

    I like Scott Walker quite a lot. He’s one of my favorite governors to come down the pipe in a long time. He has taken the fight to the liberals in his state from day one in office, and won far more than he’s lost. Really, Walker should be walking away with both my personal vote and the nomination by this point, based on his | Read More »
