Peggy Noonan and @barackobama’s unconscious* assumption of privilege.
Peggy Noonan is quite the humorist. This is the reason many people don’t like ObamaCare. It’s also part of why people wind up making fun of the president at state fairs. (On that, everyone should breathe deep and remember, as the noted political philosopher Orson Welles once put it: “It’s the business of the American people to take the mickey out of the president.” It’s | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Senator Tim Scott (R, SC).
This, again, isn’t the official footage by any means; but I did film some interviews of my own, and I’ll be putting them up this week. This, of course, is Tim Scott: old friend of the site, good guy in general. Moe Lane (crosspost)
#NRCC aggressively swinging in NY-19 race.
This is what you see when you go to http://seaneldridgeforcongress2014.com/ (Sean Eldridge being the Democratic elitist carpetbagger trying to beat sitting Congressman Chris Gibson):
Washington Post buries its allegation that Terry McAuliffe’s Greentech lied to VEDP.
There’s a good bit here of interest in this surprisingly hostile Washington Post article on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe* and his horrible, awful, no good kiddie electric car company GreenTech, but one particular bit jumps out: VEDP [Virginia Economic Development Partnership] officials were also uneasy about GreenTech’s heavy reliance on EB-5 financing. A top GreenTech executive told the VEDP that each year, 20,000 Chinese | Read More »
Bob Filner was actually quite representative of the incoming 2007 Democratic House leadership.
Breitbart may want to present this without comment… …but I have no intention of following suit. Let’s look at that list, shall we?
Quote of the Day, From The Mouth Of Terry McAuliffe’s Business Partner edition.
Greentech Automotive president Charles Wang, on the dubious joys of partnering with Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe: …there are days when Mr. Wang says he wishes he had never gone into business with a politically connected partner. “I learned a lot of things,” he said. “Politicians or people with political backgrounds are dangerous to business.” Bolding mine – and get that up on a campaign | Read More »
Senator Brian Schatz (D, Hawaii): did you have carnal relations with that sheep?
No, I never thought that I’d have the opportunity to write that out, either. But apparently this is the world that we live in, now: Hawaii senator Brian Schatz involved in simulated sheep rape rituals U.S. Senator Brian Schatz once led a fraternity that got into trouble with the law and animal welfare groups for threatening to sodomize a sheep.
Two questions for former President Bill Clinton about Bob Filner. #waronwomen
Question One (H/T: Instapundit): Was former President Bill Clinton aware of Bob Filner’s history of sexual predation when Clinton endorsed Filner in 2012 for Mayor of San Diego? Question Two – because we all know that, in the unlikely event that anybody in the Media ever has the nerve to actually ask that question of Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton will promptly say “No:” Why was | Read More »
Danny Davis (D), Bobby Rush (D): involved in Mugabe lobbying scheme?
Guys, guys, guys: Mugabe’s radioactive. I know that his money spends as good as anybody else’s, but that’s only because he uses foreign currency for the bribes lobbying. Zimbabwe’s local currency is, in a word, useless; and there’s a reason for that. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen
Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions. Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes. Tara Jones, the president of | Read More »
New York Republicans take issue with NARAL NY disclosure carve-out.
The really short version: the state of New York has a law in place that requires donor transparency for nonprofit organizations. Last week NARAL Pro-Choice New York received a unique exemption for that policy – and I mean unique; the rules were determining exemptions got changed after NARAL got its exemption. Since then the NY GOP has actually managed to get upset about something done | Read More »
Reince Priebus to CNN, NBC: drop the Hillary propaganda films, or lose primary debate access.
Their call. The head of the Republican Party threatened Monday to cut out CNN and NBC from the GOP presidential primary debates if the networks do not shelve their plans to air lengthy features on Hillary Clinton — who is widely expected to be a Democratic candidate in the 2016 election. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus accused both networks of trying to put “a | Read More »
RedState Gathering Interview: Gov. Rick Perry (R, TX).
The below does not even remotely represent the amount of video that got shot at this year’s RedState Gathering: in fact, it does not even remotely represent the amount of video that RedState shot at this year’s Gathering, or the amount of video shot of Governor Rick Perry. But the Governor had some time to talk with me on some of the issues involving Texas | Read More »
#dontblink #rsg13 Ted Cruz says “Don’t blink.”
#dontblink pic.twitter.com/TwBsTw3hWy — Moe Lane (@moelane) August 2, 2013 If you’re wondering why there’s a sudden blizzard of #dontblink tags coming from RedState Gathering folks today, it’s because of something that Ted Cruz said during his speech at the Gathering today. Basically, Senator Cruz was asked about how conservatives should hold firm on defunding Obamacare in the face of concerted effort by the media and | Read More »
