It’s Crazies All the Way Down

Featured image Just in the last few days, the liberal outrages have been hard to keep up with: hounding the Secretary of Homeland Security out of a restaurant, then “demonstrating” on her lawn with chants and blaring audio of crying children; denying the White House Press Secretary and her family dinner at a Virginia restaurant; trying to get Hall of Fame basketball player Kevin McHale fired from his job as an NBA »

Ilhan Omar: Why I hate Israel

Featured image State representative Ilhan Omar has yet to complete her first term in the Minnesota legislature, where she has accomplished approximately nothing of substance, though she has now secured the DFL endorsement to succeed Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison in Congress. In the brief Weekly Standard article “The anti-Israel seat,” I conclude with observations related to Omar’s frank hatred of Israel. She doesn’t sugarcoat it. She calls Israel an “apartheid »

She Should Have Asked Them To Bake Her a Cake

Featured image There is not much point in trying to keep up with the Liberal Outrages of the Day. They come too fast and furiously; it would be a full-time job, and more. But yesterday’s peak outrage is one you probably already know about: the manager of a Red Hen restaurant kicked Sarah Sanders and her family out of her establishment last night. Sanders tweeted about it: Last night I was told »

Is the Democrats’ “Separated Children” Ploy Working?

Featured image In a remarkable show of unity, the liberal press launched a coordinated effort to distract voters’ attention from the booming economy, President Trump’s summit with North Korea’s Kim, the DOJ Inspector General’s report and the collapse of the Mueller investigation with a ginned-up controversy over temporary separation of illegal immigrant children from their parents at the southern border. Otherwise known as law enforcement. On a short-term basis, the ploy has »

The mask slips

Featured image The role of the mainstream media as an adjunct of the Democratic Party has never been more obvious than it has been this month with the media’s nonstop hysteria over enforcement of immigration law at the border. Are we permitted to have a country anymore? Apparently not. John Heilemann is a mainstream media mainstay. He is managing editor of Bloomberg Politics, regular contributor to MSNBC’s Morning Joe and, as the »

The Ellison succession

Featured image Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is undergoing an internal struggle that threatens to take us even further into madness and indecency. I try to draw attention to what is happening here in the brief Weekly Standard article “The anti-Israel candidate” (my title: “The Ellison succession”). I am grateful to Standard editors Richard Starr and Kelly Jane Torrance for helping me place the story before the Standard’s readers. Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith »

War of the worlds (revised edition)

Featured image We haven’t heard much about the Democrats’ proposed legislative solution to resolve the hysteria over separations of families and fake families illegally entering the Unites at the border. The Democrats have whipped up the hysteria with the invaluable assistance of their media adjunct. We look back with an attitude of bemusement on the panic whipped up by the Orson Welles/Mercury Theater broadcast dramatizing the invasion of earth by Martians in »

Mourning becomes Elijah

Featured image Yesterday I particularly missed the late Andrew Breitbart, founder of Breitbart. Andrew doggedly pursued the story behind the allegations of Reps. Andre Carson, John Lewis, Emanuel Cleaver and James Clyburn that Tea Party protesters abused black congressmen with racial epithets while demonstrating against Obamacare on Capitol Hill on March 20, 2010. The story was reported as fact by news organizations including Fox News and McClatchy News, but Breitbart called baloney »

I have seen the future

Featured image I attended the Fifth District DFL special convention called on Sunday afternoon to endorse a candidate to succeed incumbent Rep. Keith Ellison, who now seeks the office of Minnesota Attorney General. Like Minneapolis, which makes up its heart, the Fifth District is predominantly Democratic. It’s one party territory. In convention assembled, the delegates turn to the leftward most viable candidate. That is how Ellison secured the nomination to succeed 14-term »

Live from the Fifth District [Update: Time for Ilhan]

Featured image I am at the special Fifth District endorsing convention. It will be called to order in the next few minutes. Erin Golden previews the convention and coming primary contest here in today’s Star Tribune. DFL Vice Chair Keith Ellison is the incumbent congressman, but he is contending for the DFL nomination for Minnesota Attorney General. Has any major party candidate ever run for such an office with a record of »

How the Democratic Party Has Mainstreamed Anti-Semitism

Featured image Ilhan Omar is a Somali-American who serves in the Minnesota House of Representatives. Scott has written about her here a number of times. She apparently entered into a bigamous marriage with her brother in order to facilitate immigration fraud, but the facts are murky and she refuses to clarify them. Keith Ellison is resigning from the House to run for Attorney General of Minnesota, so the rush is on to »

If so I can’t imagine why

Featured image As we previewed yesterday, Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison has chosen to give up his sinecure in Congress to run for the office of Minnesota Attorney General. There is now a scramble among Democrats for both offices and for the office of governor as well. It is only sketched out by the Star Tribune story here. State representative Ilhan Omar is among those who will seek the DFL endorsement »

Does anybody really know what time it is? (Minnesota DFL edition)

Featured image Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party held its state convention in Rochester over the weekend. They should have checked into the Mayo Clinic for a wellness examination. Instead the lunatics took over the Democratic asylum. The insanity first manifested with the party’s rejection of popular incumbent Attorney General Lori Swanson for endorsement. The Democrats in convention assembled rejected Swanson in favor of unknown attorney Matt Pelikan (D, Gay Millennial). The insanity next manifested »

Does anybody really know what time it is? (Minnesota edition)

Featured image Courtesy of the Democrats’ media adjunct, Minnesota state representative Ilhan Omar must be the most famous such officeholder in the history of the universe. Omar is the first Somali elected to our state legislature; she touts herself as “the highest-elected Somali-American public official in the United States.” That’s not too high. Riding the Democrats’ look at me identity politics, however, she’s going places. See, for example, the 11-minute video Omar »

Got Dem Blues?

Featured image Remember that blue wave tsunami coming to wipe out Republicans in the mid-term elections? Well, it seems to have hit a sandbar far from shore. First, the “generic ballot” of which party voters prefer for Congress has suddenly swung in favor of Republicans, following months of a slowly but steadily narrowing lead for Democrats. The newest poll, from Reuters (generally thought to be without any possible Republican bias—see chart below), »

Venezuela “Votes.” Is There a Lesson Here For Democrats?

Featured image An election is going on in Venezuela. In a country where there are no more pets and children join gangs to fight over dumpster refuse, while their parents battle for dead rats to eat for dinner, you would expect the incumbent party to lose a free election. But Nicolas Maduro will no doubt be re-elected, in part because the polls are being boycotted by most of his opponents. So Venezuela’s »

Yanny, Laurel, or….

Featured image As the evening draws to a close and we look forward to commenting on the latest limited modified hangout from the Deep State–“FBI used informant to investigate Russia ties to campaign, not to spy, as Trump claims!” says the New York Times–let’s finish with a little entertainment. If you don’t already know about the Yanny vs. Laurel controversy that has gripped the internet over the last 36 hours, it probably »
