Tech at Night: Preserving American stewardship of the Internet
We can’t hand oversight of the Internet over to Russia. Much like how the US Navy secures the world’s waterways, so too do we secure the free flow of information on the global Internet. So the DOTCOM Act by Senators Rubio, Thune, and others seeks to constrain the President’s ability to cede oversight of ICANN and IANA, fundamental Internet organizations. I hope the House passes | Read More »
The Confederate Battle Flag
The Bible tells me to love my neighbor. I have a number of black friends and I do not know any of them who would feel comfortable coming into my house if I were flying the Confederate battle flag. So I don’t. In fact, in my life, the people I can think of who proudly fly the Confederate battle flag outside their homes are people | Read More »
What Each Candidate Says About His/Her Own Campaign Logo
Well, with most of the candidates out there and a few we’ve never heard of, let’s examine the 2016 logos on the GOP side. We may, or may not, have asked each candidate for first person commentary on their own logos. Jeb Bush Hi!! My name is Jeb!! I don’t have a last name because I’m your buddy!! And millennials will like me because I | Read More »

Hillary Rodham Is to James Buchanan as The GOP is to ______?
You should probably listen to this speech with headphones*. It pertains to selling real estate, but it could easily be adapted to competitive politics. You either care about winning and doing what you promised or you are just gliding through life. Politicians are like intestinal bacteria. They either help you digest or they just steal your (expletive) lunch. If GOP contains far more parasites than | Read More »

Bum Fight!! New York Times and POLITICO duke it out over a bottle of Night Train
The honeymoon is over. The bloom is off the rose. The cold light of dawn has arrived. The heady romance is now headed for divorce court. For a few weeks POLITICO, and in particular its correspondent Dylan Byers (@DylanByers), has been the go-to guy the mainstream media use to stomp on the stories the Washington Free Beacon has been breaking. For instance, back on May 14, | Read More »

BEHOLD! THE MAJESTIC… AH, MAJESTY OF THE RUBIO BOAT!!!!!
The New York Times has just realized that they are going to have to portray an elderly, largely unlikable, and rule-stretching crony capitalist as being an innovative fresh-faced savior of the Republic. As you can see, their sanity did not survive this moment of terrible anagnorisis.

Marco Rubio, Commoner
Fresh off their shocking revelation that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 90% drives himself around like some peasant, getting speeding tickets in the process, the NYT is back at it again. The latest broadside against Rubio reveals – shockingly – that Rubio has struggled to pay his bills just like some regular old, non-1%er American: WEST MIAMI, Fla. — For years, Senator [mc_name | Read More »
NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.
The New York Times is being fed stories by American Bridge. …Yes, I know. It’s like catching your aunt picking her nose.

Marco Rubio Will Join Us At the RedState Gathering
I should have put this in the announcement the other day. But apparently, for reasons I cannot fathom, Apple’s iCloud decided to start sending stuff to a junk folder even though I don’t want it to. And there I found an email from Rubio’s team from last week saying he would be at the RedState Gathering. So that’s awesome. Rubio was the first Senate candidate | Read More »
GOP Failure Theater: the Iran nuclear vote, Cruz-Rubio edition
Failure Theater. When the GOP talks a good game about opposing Obama’s policies but, in fact, vote to go along with them. Yesterday the US Senate voted 98-1 to go along with whatever Barack Obama decides to give to Iran. Though the feckless Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 50% has portrayed it as a successful “bipartisan” bill, part of [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell | Read More »
Cotton and Rubio on verge of scuttling Corker’s Iran surrender bill
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 50% has been working hand-in-glove with Maryland Senator Ben Cardin to shepherd a disastrous bill approving Obama’s Iran negotiations through the Senate. It is disastrous in two respects. First and foremost, Corker’s bill essentially gives Obama a way to work around the US Constitution. Instead of this agreement being presented to the Senate for approval… and as | Read More »
Rubio vs. The Field
In sports, whenever there is a prohibitive favorite that has to compete against a crowded field (especially in sports where the outcome is hard to predict), a popular game sports talkers like to play is to play “Prohibitive favorite vs. the field – who would you pick?” For example, in the NCAA basketball tournament this year, Kentucky was a roughly even bet to win the | Read More »
Should a GOP presidential candidate attend a homosexual wedding?
There has been a garden industry erupting among GOP presidential contenders over whether or not they would attend a homosexual wedding… as a guest. Scott Walker (via CNN) “Even though my position on marriage is still that its defined as between a man and a woman, and I support the constitution of the state but for someone I love, we’ve been to a reception,” he | Read More »
Cruz, Paul, Walker, Rubio, Perry, Jindal, and Bush Walk Into a Ballroom
There are going to be lots of corrals to meet the Presidential candidates. That’s the nature of it. They march in, they give speeches, and they leave. In many of these events, if you pay extra, you get closer. You may pay even more and get a photo opportunity. Good luck getting a question answered. That was one reason I wanted the RedState Gathering to | Read More »
