    The #BATF: Kim Davis, European Migrant Crisis, Emailgate

    Welcome back to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Friends! This week, local candidate Laura Fillault joins the regular panel featuring F. Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon, Scott Lincicome of the Cato Institute, Jeff Blehar of the Ace of Spades Decision Desk, and Neal Dewing of the Federalist to discuss Kim Davis, the European refugee crisis, the latest development in Emailgate, and perhaps | Read More »

    Trump Signs Loyalty Pledge. So What?

    The cable news networks are all breathlessly reporting that after a one-on-one meeting with Reince Priebus, Donald Trump has signed a pledge in which he promises to support the eventual Republican nominee, regardless of who it might be. I am sure that in the corridors of the RNC national headquarters, they are all slapping themselves on the back confident that eventually Trump will fade away | Read More »

    The New, Terrible Face of the Refugee Crisis

    The New, Terrible Face of the Refugee Crisis

    Lost in the mass coverage of the American tragedy in Roanoke last week, one of the largest humanitarian crises of the last century has been unfolding in Europe. As a direct result of the Obama Administration’s fecklessness in the Middle East, and their complete inability to check the rampage of ISIS across Iraq and Syria, millions of innocent people have fled across the Middle East | Read More »

    Stop California’s Attorney General From Intimidating Conservative Donors

    Stop California's Attorney General From Intimidating Conservative Donors

    Liberals today are determined to aggressively stamp out and intimidate anyone who disagrees with them. That is why, when the IRS “accidentally” leaked the identities of donors to the National Organization for Marriage, those donors faced reprisals in the form of boycotts and public harassment. Since conservatives seem to have abandoned the field of boycotts for reasons of questionable wisdom, this appears to be a | Read More »

    Why “Police Lives Matter” Doesn’t Need a Hashtag Campaign

    Why "Police Lives Matter" Doesn't Need a Hashtag Campaign

    I read with interest today this column in the Chicago Tribune by John Kass called “Police Lives Matter, Too.” I agree, as I think all reasonable people do, that police lives matter. But I can’t help but think that this column – and other similar ones like it that have cropped up all over the country – is an exercise in either being willfully obtuse or | Read More »

    Hillary Knew Good and Well Those Emails Would Become Classified

    Hillary Knew Good and Well Those Emails Would Become Classified

    Image Credit: JStone/Shutterstock.com Let me bore you guys with a little bit of lawyer talk. Sorry to phrase stuff this way, but I think it’s important because the concept of confidentiality, work product, and privilege are intimately familiar to a lawyer, and Hillary Clinton was a relatively successful one for decades. The law has a concept called “attorney work product” which | Read More »

    The Carson Conundrum

    The Carson Conundrum

    President Obama, Commute Sharanda Jones’ Sentence

    President Obama, Commute Sharanda Jones' Sentence

      Sharanda Jones is currently serving a sentence of life without the possibility of parole at Carswell Federal Prison in Texas. Life without the possibility of parole is the second-harshest sentence our justice system can mete out, short only of the death penalty, and that not by much. What, you might ask yourself, did Sharanda Jones do to merit this sentence? She was convicted of | Read More »

    After the Storm: The Miraculous Recovery of the New Orleans Education System (VIDEO)

    After the Storm: The Miraculous Recovery of the New Orleans Education System (VIDEO)

    This weekend was the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which provided the media with many gleeful opportunities to mock the Bush administration for its handling of Katrina. Some of the more thoughtful news segments focused on the rebuilding of New Orleans since Katrina – what has worked and what hasn’t. Almost all of them touched at least in passing on the miraculous rebirth of the | Read More »

    The Democratic Dearth of Competence

    The Democratic Dearth of Competence

    It is definitely true that all the Democratic candidates for President this year all have bad ideas (Bernie Sanders) or no ideas at all (everyone else). But the more germane fact about the sorry crop of Democrats on offer (even if you include Joe Biden) is that they have been fantastically bad at actually accomplishing anything. Perhaps the silver lining of this already bizarre and | Read More »

    Enough With the Roanoke Shooting Coverage, Already

    Let me just say first of all that anyone who thinks I am being callous with the above headline hasn’t spent most of their day the last 72 hours watching cable news, like I have. Obviously, the deaths of Alison Parker and Adam Ward were a tragedy and I don’t want to minimize the loss and suffering of their family and friends. But the media’s | Read More »

    Hillary’s New Campaign Strategy: Trolling

    Hillary's New Campaign Strategy: Trolling

    The Hillary Clinton campaign wants you to know that her recent comments in which she compared Republicans to terrorists and Nazis within the span of 24 hours were not “mistakes,” despite the fact that they were widely panned by pundits on both sides of the aisle. Rather, they were part of a deliberate campaign strategy hatched as part of a campaign “reset” – which, by | Read More »

    New HotAir/Townhall Poll: Trump in the Lead, Hillary in Trouble

    HotAir and Townhall have released their very first jointly commissioned scientific poll of the 2016 race. There are a number of findings that are surprising in both the Republican and Democratic fields. First, on the Republican side, the HotAir/Townhall poll shows Trump with a comfortable lead, like all other polls that have been taken recently. Trump pulls in around 24%, whereas the next contender (Carson) | Read More »

    The University of Tennessee Wishes to Introduce Your Child to Some Exciting New Pronouns

    Embrace the Sweet Meteor of Death. This is the world we live in. The University of Tennessee at Knoxville has sent out a directive to its professors from their Office of Diversity and Inclusion. In order to not risk offending the infinitesimally small transgender population, they want your children to learn some exciting new words that will make communicating in English insanely confusing for everyone: | Read More »

    VIDEO: Terry McAuliffe Calls for Mandatory Background Checks, Then Immediately Admits Roanoke Shooter Passed a Background Check

    Terry McAuliffe rushed to the WDBJ studios in Roanoke today to continue his push to use the Roanoke shooting tragedy as leverage to grab people’s guns. Most of McAuliffe’s time was spent arguing that mandatory background checks are needed. Embarrassingly, McAuliffe was forced to admit in response to the first question asked that the Roanoke shooter himself passed a background check, thus indicating (as always seems | Read More »
