Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly are still trying to milk their gun control crusade for all the publicity it is worth. They recently put on their shocked faces and blasted Donald Trump for demanding that Hillary Clinton ask her body guards to disarm since she is so anti-gun Former Rep. [Read More]
Periodically, Dan Rather emerges from his swamp to rant and rave at all things conservative. Most of the time, his rantings are deservedly ignored. Sometimes, though, they make for illuminating reading, both to remind us what a hack Rather is (and always was) and to allow us some insight into the [Read More]
By: Mike McDaniel I have, for some time, been keeping an eye out for the debut of the Chevy Bolt, a wunderkind of an EV that is supposed to vindicate the promise of the EV, and improve on every shortcoming of the breed. Every article I’ve seen on the little [Read More]
“Ipse dixit” is one of the more charming Latin phrases you’ll find in legal writing. It translates to “he himself has said it.” (As an aside, Gilbert & Sullivan aficionado’s may recognize that little phrase from H.M.S. Pinafore.) What the phrase means is that the author asserts as authority the [Read More]
Looks like Goldman Sachs has made it official. The scam uncovered by the New York Observer and reported by our own Joshupundit here in which Hillary for America bills small donors multiple times has inspired someone at the Vampire Squid to announce their own Hillary for America Credit Card. Details [Read More]
The Clinton campaign has been caught red handed victimizing small, usually low income donors by the simple method of just resubmitting what was supposed to be a one time donation over and over again. Simply disgraceful. [Read More]
If Bill Clinton and Al Gore couldn’t do it, then no one can. A Leftist Facebook friend posted an article from The Hill with a lede saying that Donald Trump “floats rolling back food safety regulations.” The implication, obviously, is that in Trump’s America, we’re all going to die from [Read More]
Here are the results of a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll: Two-thirds of Americans feel they have little or no influence over the actions of the federal government. Forty-five percent say the country’s greatness is ebbing. As many see voter fraud as commonplace. A third aren’t confident that votes in [Read More]
By: Mike McDaniel I think, perhaps, I’ve been too hard on Hillary Clinton. It occurred to me only this week she is following in enormous and consequential literary footsteps. It was Mark Twain who wrote that he could remember everything, even things that never happened, and in his advancing age, he was [Read More]
With these constant WikiLeaks disclosures of racist and anti-Gay slurs, sexism, outright lies, cronyism and crooked dealings, the Democrats have a major problem with keeping the troop’s morale up as more and more comes out.
So interim DNC chief Donna Brazile has a solution…don’t look! Stay away from the eee-vil Wikileaks and remain in blissful ignorance! [Read More]
I had the pleasure of listening to a delightful well-informed, thoughtful speaker: Brian Calle, who is the Opinion Editor of the Southern California News Group and oversees Opinion content for its 11 newspapers and websites, including the well-regarded Orange County Register. The 11 entities have a larger circulation than the [Read More]
By: Mike McDaniel This was originally published on August 20, 2015: The glasses, colors of clothing, facial expression–uncanny, and darkly hilarious. As I’ve recently said, if Hillary went face down for the final time tomorrow (Dear Secret Service: this is merely a use of irony, not in any way a wish, [Read More]
By: Mike McDaniel There are times, gentle readers, when writing yet another story critical of President Obama, I pause for just a moment to reflect, to ask myself, “am I unfairly criticizing Barack Hussein Obama?” Then a story like this from The Daily Caller comes around, and I realize, if anything, I’m [Read More]
