    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 »

    LiveBlog – #WeWillNotConform

    Thanks to The Blaze and Freedomworks, I was privileged to be invited to liveblog Glenn Beck’s live Common Core event tonight in Dallas/Ft. Worth. 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. Enjoy! 7:56pm (ET) - Glenn is on | Read More »

    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 »

    Fracking Rift Threatens to Sink Udall, Hickenlooper

    Fracking Rift Threatens to Sink Udall, Hickenlooper

    Fracking has been good for the State of Colorado and its economy, and therefore a large majority of Coloradans support fracking. However, the Democrat base, particularly in Colorado, is not so much with the whole science thing, and therefore they are vehemently opposed to fracking. Uber environmentalist wacko Jared Polis (D-CO), has decided to score an own goal on two vulnerable Democrats who are up | Read More »

    Josh Marshall and TalkingPointsMemo: Russian Separatists Are Just Like Tea Partiers

    Josh Marshall and TalkingPointsMemo: Russian Separatists Are Just Like Tea Partiers

    The fog of war still obscures many of the events surrounding MH17 and it’s still too early to draw any hard conclusions about what occurred, but in the age of instant information, everyone is dissecting the smallest bit of information, however well or poorly verified it might be. Today the lazy and not-very-bright Josh Marshall waded into these waters, with predictable results: Following up on | Read More »

    The Media’s Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    The Media's Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    It is difficult to find a subject on which the Western media is more monolithic in its view than the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Despite the uncontroverted fact that the latest round of fighting – like virtually all the other rounds of fighting – was unquestionably started by the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians have rejected a cease fire, the media are | Read More »

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor is in the fight of his political life against Tom Cotton in what has become one of the reddest states in the country, and also one of the most religious states in the country. It is no coincidence then that Pryor has been seen holding a Bible and saying the word “Jesus” more often than a revival preacher in a tent. Pryor’s first | Read More »

    Louisiana Common Core Fight Coming to a Head Today

    Louisiana Common Core Fight Coming to a Head Today

    For those who have not been following the issue, Louisiana is the current ground zero in the fight over the implementation of Common Core standards. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued an executive order suspending implementation of Common Core and suspended a contract that State Superintendent John White had entered into for the purchase of Common Core related materials and supplies. The Louisiana Board of | Read More »

    Playing the Race Deck

    Playing the Race Deck

    It is almost tiresome at this point to address the topic of race and opposition to Obama. But with Eric Holder’s remarks earlier this week that a significant part of opposition to Obama and Holder was driven by “racial animus,” the President’s many apologists in the media have yet again taken up the cry. Someone named Dorothy Brown, who is a Critical Race Theory professor | Read More »

    The Commodification of Men

    The Commodification of Men

    Last week, author Susan Patton was on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy and the resulting segment has become a source of some controversy not just among the usual feminist crowd but also among even some conservative professional women. ThinkProgress summed up the exchange thusly: The controversial author criticized today’s women for “acting like such an entitled princess” and prioritizing careers ahead of their families. Men, Patton | Read More »

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    I have said for many years that there is literally nothing that Obama could do that would not earn either a defense or outright praise from New York Times Parody Columnist Charles Blow. The latest example of Blow’s inimitable lickspittlery purports to be an indignant response to John Boehner’s facially obvious assertion that Barack Obama refuses to take responsibility for anything. Blow claims, in his | Read More »

    Mark Begich’s Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Mark Begich's Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Predictably, Mark Begich (D-AK) is attempting to run away from, and even against, President Obama, who was never particularly popular in Alaska on his best day and is performing especially poorly now. Begich is so desperate to create space from Obama that he is attempting to create the impression that he is not just different from Obama; he is actively opposed to Obama. BARROW, Alaska | Read More »

    Amanda Marcotte’s Continuing Assault on Facts, Decency, and Reason

    Usually I avoid responding to political columnists who are obviously afflicted with particularly insidious forms of dementia which of necessity includes Amanda Marcotte. But this particularly insane rant – which exists solely to take unsourced and spurious accusations against crisis pregnancy centers – is so blatantly dishonest and delusional that it demands at least some sort of response. The basic thrust of Marcotte’s argument is | Read More »

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    It’s often said that men objectify women by reducing them to one (or more) of their body parts in a sexual fashion. Colorado’s Democrat Senator Mark Udall, who is in deep trouble in his re-election bid, is guilty of just such objectification as he desperately tries to woo women voters to save his job. Udall has made it clear that he intends to make women | Read More »
