Did Jan Schakowsky just break the law?
You might recall that in Illinois, it is illegal to “electioneer” inside a polling place. You might recall that this issue came up recently when Michelle Obama, a Harvard Law School graduate and the daughter of a Chicago Democratic Machine precinct captain, discussed with voters inside a polling place why it was important to support Democrats this cycle. Naturally, the Robert Gibbs and the White | Read More »

Obama and Democrats lie about Citizens United and campaign money
Barack Obama and the Democrats have a story about this election. It goes like this. The Supreme Court ruled that corporations have free speech rights in the Supreme Court decision Citizens United. Since then, all this corporate money has flowed into campaigns, blah blah blah. And the press has completely accepted this line of thinking. It is complete nonsense. They probably want to concoct a | Read More »
Democrats argue it is fine to ban book promotion
The “Young Guns” have a book. They also have a promotion tour and a video. Now, the Democrats could engage in a battle of ideas. But that’s not what they do. (are you surprised?)

By their interpretation, a book publisher cannot promote a | Read More »
Keynesianism is dead in Europe

Brazil provided political cover to the US on behalf of the developing countries. This has been a consequence of something truly remarkable happening in Europe. Keynsianism has lost in Europe. There is no political support for it. And Barack Obama got hit in the | Read More »
“Tough Decisions” coming for politicians

It is tough, but often it has to be done by management for them to be responsible stewards of the organization. Last week, the Democratic mayor of Los Angeles (and former | Read More »
Media gets Carly Fiorina wrong on national security and the economy
Over the past 72 hours, the online left has collectively ripped into Carly Fiorina for an ad that shines a spotlight on Barbara Boxer’s assertion that “One of the very important national security issues we face, frankly, is climate change.” Naturally, the media has been carrying Boxer’s water in wildly distorting Fiorina’s point. Ultimately, this election is going to be fought over questions about who can address the problem | Read More »
Why is Charlie Rangel bailing out the rum industry?
Remember Charlie Rangel? The Congressman illegally renting multiple apartments in New York City subject to rent control who is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee? Back in the 70s, he beat his predecessor, Adam Clayton Powell, in a primary over, among other things, shady dealings in the Bahamas.
