Some necessary pushback on the reporting of Congress’s invite of Pope Francis I.
Quick background: Speaker of the House invited Pope Francis I to be the first pope ever to speak to a joint session of Congress… what’s that? “Did he ask permission of the President?” Umm… no. You see: Democratic agitprop to the contrary, Barack Obama is not actually a king. In fact, at the moment Obama’s actually just a bit of a troll: and even if | Read More »
On Fox News’ decision to show the IS death cult in action.
Let’s just establish a few things about  Fox News’ decision to show Islamic State’s (IS) ritual human sacrifice of downed Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh. The Fox News link is here. It does, in fact, show, a graphic ritual human sacrifice done by evil death cultists. The professional-level quality of the video editing confirms that this was done deliberately, ritually, and as part of a larger plan. | Read More »
Wow. @ed_kilgore & the Washington Monthly pretend that Scott Walker may not have gotten death threats.
Now, I get that the Washington Monthly is a political stroke magazine for progressives. That’s fine. But even the sad fetishists that read it are still actual human beings.

Obama administration punts on enforcing obamacare. Again. #obamacare
So the White House is, yet again, delaying a critical part of Obamacare. This monstrosity has far too many critical parts, you know what I mean?

The White House and their false claims of deficit busting, in one handy picture.
Short version: use this image against would-be Democratic deficit busters. Longer version: the White House is trying to have its own facts, again. At issue is their recent attempt to brag that the deficit for 2014 has been reduced to a ‘mere’ 2.8% of GDP. As Twitchy ably notes/rebutted in response, that would be great, except for two minor little problems: The debt is still | Read More »
Let me FIFY, National Journal: “Why Don’t White DEMOCRATS Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”
*My* party isn’t the one with the problem when it comes to convincing white voters to vote for minority candidates with shared values.

Think that the Democrats will retake the House in ’16? Fine. Name the seats.
While you are going to hear a good deal about how the Democrats plan to message, and take advantage of their gerrymandered states, and framing, and almost everything else – one thing that’s going to be not talked about much will be which seats are going to flip.

Joni Ernst and bread bags: both are, in fact, as American as apple pie.
So. When Joni Ernst gave the official Republican response to the State of the Union address, she included a homely detail from her childhood: in the wintertime, she and all the other kids would have bread bags placed over their shoes in order to protect them from the weather. …And why am I bringing that pretty much commonplace, throwaway line? Well, I’ll let Peggy Noonan | Read More »
Gov. Scott Walker (R, Wisconsin) and the Washington Post’s institutional bias.
You’ve no doubt already heard that Scott Walker is, yea, indeed, running for President – with a hundred ‘Throne of Skulls’ jokes already blossoming on Twitter* – but I don’t want to hit that. I want to hit a problem that I have with the Washington Post’s reporting on the subject. This passage, in particular: [Scott Walker's] decision to take on public employee unions in | Read More »
Witness the awesome power of the Blue State model in Democratic-controlled California!
To wit: they’re creating actual nomad clans over there. Over the last two years, street encampments have jumped their historic boundaries in downtown Los Angeles, lining freeways and filling underpasses from Echo Park to South Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, a city-county agency, received 767 calls about street encampments in 2014, up 60% from the 479 in 2013. Some residents believe the | Read More »
