New Ad Takes On Liberal Media

Featured image We wrote here Conservative War Chest, which has produced some excellent, hard-hitting ads this election cycle. Their latest came out today; it is a frontal assault on liberal media. Spokesman Mike Flynn says: Our new ad shows specific, concrete examples of news executives and partisan reporters trying to hid the truth from the American people. They play such a role trying to influence our elections that they should be on »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured imageAmmo Grrrll titles her column this week COME FLY WITH ME, but she’s not talking about “far Bombay” or “llama land” or “Acapulco Bay,” and “weather-wise” the destination is iffy. She’s flying to the Twin Cities. She writes: Even before Ebola, Ammo Grrrll only flew under extreme duress. Funerals. Emergencies with sick parents. For business, I have driven from Minnesota to West Virginia, Maryland, and Texas. I enjoy long road »

A World Turned Upside Down

Featured imageThe Wall Street Journal reported yesterday on President Obama’s plan to selectively revoke the nation’s immigration laws by executive decree. (As the Journal notes, the administration is trying to craft orders that are “legally defensible.”) This latest news drew another blast of righteous indignation from Senator Jeff Sessions, who is Horatius at the bridge when it comes to defending the rights and interests of American workers: The Wall Street Journal »

Democrats Race-Bait Across the South

Featured imageThe saddest aspect of this year’s scoundrelly election season is the Democrats’ effort to stir up racial discord in hopes of hanging on to control of the Senate. No lie is too absurd for the Democrats when Harry Reid’s future is at stake. The New York Times reports: In the final days before the election, Democrats in the closest Senate races across the South are turning to racially charged messages »

Mary Burke in 47 seconds flat

Featured imageThe facade of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s was rudely ripped off her in the past day by a couple of stories. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel dispatched a team of reporters to reapply it this morning, but Burke’s response itself leaves her facade in ruins. I provided the short course with links this morning in “Burke busted.” Now the Wisconsin GOP condenses the story in a 47-second video (below). »

How many elections…? part 3

Featured imageJames O’Keefe has been on the ground in North Carolina for the past week and just released a video contribution to Steve’s series wondering how many elections the Democrats will steal next week. Like Diogenes in search of an honest man, O’Keefe goes in search of someone, anyone, who will discourage illegal voting by noncitizens in North Carolina. Spoiler alert: O’Keefe had no more luck thant Diogenes (video below). O’Keefe »

Burke busted

Featured imageI haven’t had the stomach to watch the campaign next door in Wisconsin. I can’t think of a more deserving candidate for reelection than incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker, but my approach has been to keep my eyes closed and pray for his success. I admire his cool, his political courage, and the record he has compiled as governor while working in his fight against the goon-led effort to recall »

And now for something completely different, part deux

Featured imageThe first half of The Big Lebowski may the funniest half-movie ever, and is certainly right up there with the other funniest half-movies of all time. Not surprisingly, the film in its entirety has generated its own cult following and annual Lebowski Fest convention. In the film Jeff Bridges plays the dissolute leading character, Jeff Lebowski (“the Dude,” photo at left). His daily attire is a bathrobe, except when he »

When You’ve Lost the New York Times. . .

Featured imageEven the New York Times is starting to figure out that Obama and his roving clownshow of an administration is simply in over its head.  In “Mounting Crises Raise Questions on Obama Team’s Ability to Cope,” Times reporter Mark Landler uses ventriloquist journalism to give effect to the no doubt widespread desire of Beltway Democrats for Obama to try to right his fortunes through the desperation measure of cleaning house »

A twisted administration

Featured imageThe twisted mentality of the Obama administration is prominently on display in Jeffrey Goldberg’s summary of his conversations with senior officials posted here. Anonymously describing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as “chickenshit,” one senior official serves up a pure case of projection, and another senior administration official seconds him (or her). It is as if Obama himself had dismissed someone as “arrogant,” or Joe Biden disparaged anyone as “stupid,” or John »

Who’s The Warmest of Them All?

Featured imageThe climatistas are already wetting their pants with the news that 2014 is supposedly on track to be the warmest year evah! The AP’s environmental “reporter” Seth Borenstein (who is really just an environmental activist with a byline, like most environmental “reporters”*) has told us so. Not so fast, says Dr. Roy Spencer, who is, as you may recall, one of the inventors of the NASA satellite systems that give »

How Many Elections Will Democrats Steal Next Week? Part 2

Featured imageAs a follow up to our item the other day on the recent academic study examining the evidence of widespread voting by non-citizens, there are two stories out today. First, Bryan Preston over at Breitbart reports on what appears to be significant voting anomalies in Maryland (where there is a surprisingly close governor’s race that has not attracted much attention outside the state): The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that »

Chickenshit coming home to roost

Featured imageLet us recall Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s disquisition on American foreign policy in which he explicated the text of Malcolm X in his Nation of Islam phase: “America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” It was Wright’s post 9/11 sermon. Thus spake Obama’s pastor (video here): “What Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Muhammad was in fact true: America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” Wright expounded on »

And Now For Something Completely Different

Featured imageWith the final week sprint to the election next week, a brief time out for some music.  Anyone remember when MTV used to broadcast music videos?  Of course, musicians need to make music videos for anyone to have anything to broadcast, so no wonder MTV now stands for “Mostly Trashy Viewing.” About the only musicians still putting out videos with real effort is the circus act known as OK Go. »

Who’s a Chickenshit? Part Two

Featured imageWe have written here and here about the “senior Obama administration official” who called Benjamin Netanyahu a “chickenshit” in an interview with the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. This is the full context: The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official »

What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make?

Featured imageDemocrats are convinced that Hillary Clinton is a powerhouse presidential candidate, notwithstanding the fact that the only elections she has ever actually won were for the Senate; she ran in New York, a state in which she did not live, while she was First Lady. Which is, essentially, cheating. She was then reelected. After that, she lost the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination despite being universally considered the inevitable nominee. Is »

The IRS scandal: A refresher

Featured imageThe House Oversight Committee has released the video below providing a short refresher in the IRS targeting scandal. One of the Obama administration’s greatest successes is the stonewalling, covering up and bald-faced prevaricating with which it has kept the lid on the scandal. The video isn’t really comprehensible unless you’ve been following the story, so it is of limited usefulness. But it is good enough to have set me back »
