    The Insane Defense of the Bergdahl Swap

    The Insane Defense of the Bergdahl Swap

    Now that Bowe Bergdahl has been charged with desertion, as his platoon mates have suggested he should be since before the ill-fated swap was executed, the administration’s attempts to defend one of their worst decisions to date have predictably grown more absurd. Via RCP, hashtag diplomat Jen Psaki’s stammering efforts to deal with basic questions from Megyn Kelly are a pretty representative sample. Watch the | Read More »

    The Eeyore Caucus is Set to Kill the Sequester for Good

    The Eeyore Caucus is Set to Kill the Sequester for Good

    I am, for the most part, a partisan hack. Accordingly, the last two months have been difficult because in an ideal world I would spend all or almost all my time criticizing Democrats. However, Republicans have failed so spectacularly and repeatedly since taking over control of Congress that it’s difficult to find the time and energy. The latest of these capitulations concerns Republican surrender on | Read More »

    Michigan Police Brutally Beat Black Man for Opening Car Door

    Michigan Police Brutally Beat Black Man for Opening Car Door

      Via ClickonDetroit comes a very disturbing video showing some police brutality in Inkster, Michigan under questionable circumstances at best. The video below more or less speaks for itself but we will acknowledge that the man in question who was beaten by the police made one critical mistake – opening his car door. This is never a good idea under any circumstances but I find | Read More »

    The Cruz Conundrum

    The Cruz Conundrum

    Ted Cruz became the first Republican to officially announce his candidacy today, which means the Silly Season has really and truly begun in earnest. I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% a lot as a Senator and I think that he will bring a lot of energy to the debates and that he will have important points to make about the value of | Read More »

    Coming to Terms with Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Coming to Terms with Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Warning: You are entering a spoiler zone. Over a month after its release, Kingsman: The Secret Service seems primed to exceed all pre-release expectations with a US Box office haul that has already exceeded $110 million not to mention healthy international returns (including, for reasons no one seems to understand, an already ardent cult following in South Korea). Even this week, Kingsman looks prepared to | Read More »

    Moloch Must be Appeased

    Moloch Must be Appeased

    Democrats in Washington, DC are tying up both a human trafficking bill and the confirmation of Loretta Lynch for one simple reason: to an elected Democrat Senator there is no higher good than more dead unborn children. The Senate Democrats’ behavior in this fight has removed all doubt whatsoever about their motives in this regard. The fight here is not about expanding the legality of | Read More »

    The Clinton Foreign Policy Is and Always Has Been for Sale

    The Clinton Foreign Policy Is and Always Has Been for Sale

    As Cute As Always How bad are things getting for the Clintons? Even Reuters is compelled to note that there are huge, yawning gaps in the disclosures provided by Hillary to the Obama administration. And as this particular scandal blows up the Obama administration has to wonder how long it can forestall throwing Hillary under the bus for failing to live up | Read More »

    Breitbart, Malkin, Scott Walker, and Strategery

    Breitbart, Malkin, Scott Walker, and Strategery

    Fresh off of claiming the scalp of Liz Mair (more on that later), The Website Bearing Breitbart’s Name issued another broadside yesterday consisting almost entirely of the fact that Michelle Malkin thinks Scott Walker has a lot of problems. I’m not going to link the piece because I’m done linking to Breitbart, as I view them as summarily unhelpful to the movement. If you want | Read More »

    Most Transparent Administration in History Ceases Honoring FOIA Requests

    Most Transparent Administration in History Ceases Honoring FOIA Requests

    Score another one for the Most Transparent Administration in History, as the Obama Administration’s White House Office of Administration has declared (on National Freedom of Information Day) that they will no longer be honoring FOIA requests: According to USA Today: Unlike other offices within the White House, which were always exempt from the Freedom of Information Act, the Office of Administration responded to FOIA requests | Read More »

    Boehner Trades $200B in New Spending Now for Nothing Later

    Boehner Trades $200B in New Spending Now for Nothing Later

    Most people (including me) who are even vaguely familiar with Medicare’s reimbursement rates for doctors agree that the current reimbursement scheme is already an atrocity, and that it will get much worse if planned scheduled cuts that are over the horizon are allowed to kick in. Further cuts to the Medicare reimbursement schedule would in fact likely affect quality of care for many Medicare beneficiaries. | Read More »

    Rick Perry’s Terrible Hires

    Rick Perry's Terrible Hires

        Let me say first of all that I like Rick Perry quite a lot. I’ve had the privilege of meeting him personally on several occasions and I am impressed with his accomplishments as Governor of Texas. However, it’s time to confront the elephant in the room: Rick Perry has made some legitimately terrible hires during the course of his early 2016 campaign that | Read More »

    Many Conservatives are Blowing it on the Ferguson DOJ Report

    Many Conservatives are Blowing it on the Ferguson DOJ Report

    It’s unfortunate, the way news is consumed and interpreted in the age of twitter. Everyone feels tremendous pressure to form an opinion quickly and state it loudly and with certainty. Once this has been done, people are highly resistant to changing their minds and they become impervious to new evidence, often dismissing out of hand outright facts just because they are reported by a given source | Read More »

    The Dumb Impulse Towards Authoritarianism

    The Dumb Impulse Towards Authoritarianism

    Yesterday, Breitbart Texas highlighted a particularly stupid bill that is being pushed by Texas State Rep. Jason Villalba which would, in essence, make it illegal for any person (other than media) to film cops while they are performing their duties from a distance of less than 25 feet (or 100 feet if you are legally carrying a concealed weapon, for some reason). As written, Villalba’s | Read More »

    Republicans (and Democrats) in Congress Plan to Use a Fake Crisis to Raise Your Taxes

    Republicans (and Democrats) in Congress Plan to Use a Fake Crisis to Raise Your Taxes

      Fresh off their capitulation on almost every issue of substance during their first two months of the new session, Republicans are now joining with Democrats to start a PR war to cushion the blow for their plan to institute a tax hike that will disproportionately affect low-and-middle class  families. The PR push in question relies on a fake and manufactured crisis concerning the imminent | Read More »
