Into the Penalty Box for Subverting the Narrative?

August 1, 2017 Patrick O'Hannigan 1

Careful observers of politics and culture usually learn how to spot the dominant narrative, which is a set of presumptions influencing how most of the top-tier actors in the “infotainment” complex see the world (not coincidentally, professional influencers expect the rest of us to share their presumptions, because they sleep [Read More]

Maverick Rides Again

July 28, 2017 1willford 1

By Mike McDaniel    As I’m sure regular readers know, a last ditch attempt to pseudo repeal/replace Obamacare has gone down in flames. The co-called “skinny bill,” which would supposedly have repealed some of the worst features of Obamacare such as the insurance mandate and at least some taxes, wasn’t [Read More]

Xavier Seen Such a Dishonest California Politician?

July 17, 2017 Proof Positive 0

Californians aren’t brain dead, although you’d never know it from the quality of public officials they send to Sacramento year after year. And here’s proof of it: liberal California politicians have to lie constantly to maintain their power, lest the common people they so disdain rise up against them. Case [Read More]

GA-6: America May Have A Chance

June 23, 2017 1willford 0

Since the election of Donald Trump, Democrats–and the media; I know–I repeat myself–have lived in a continuous state of delusion, hatred, rage and projection. Donald Trump could not possibly have been elected president. After all, it was Hillary Clinton’s turn, and they didn’t know anyone that voted for Trump, not [Read More]

James Comey: The New Normal

June 8, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    The “hottest ticket in town,” as the media have termed it, is over, at least the public version of the performance. Make no mistake, gentle readers, it was a performance, though one that is not done. The Media, the Democrats, far too many Republicans and everyone [Read More]

The Special Counsel: A Few Initial Observations

May 20, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the Russia/collusion affair. Rosenstein is acting AG only in the Russia/collusion affair, and only because Jeff Sessions was stupid enough to listen to Democrats and recuse himself in that [Read More]

Trump: The Resistance Strikes

May 17, 2017 1willford 0

By Mike McDaniel:    The Washington Post has done it again. This time they’ve published an anonymously sourced story claiming Mr. Trump somehow gave away the intelligence store in a meeting with the Russians. In short order, every person in the room for that meeting—and there were few—has clearly stated [Read More]

Comey And The Insupportable Media

By: Mike McDaniel    Mark Finkelstein at Legal Insurrection has a bit of the entirely deranged fallout from the firing of FBI Director James Comey: To read the rest, go here…

Comey Out: Rule Of Law In?

May 10, 2017 1willford 0

By Mike McDaniel    The firing, on May 9, of FBI Director James Comey, will continue to splatter across the news for months, perhaps years to come. The hypocrisy is already stunning. Democrats wanted Comey fired because Hillary. Trump fired Comey. Democrats want Trump fired because Comey. None of this [Read More]

A Friendly–For Now–Letter To Congressional Republicans

By: Mike McDaniel     “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” Groucho Marx  Republican politics is the art of begging voters to give you complete political power to accomplish wonders, getting it, and then ignoring the bastards.” [Read More]

Gorsuch Confirmed 54-45, Chuck Schumer Hardest Hit

April 10, 2017 Proof Positive 0

Gorsuch confirmed…this is not exactly breaking news, is it? In fact, he’s getting sworn in today at the White House. But, I saw this over at Polination, and the numbers struck me. A) “Joe Donnelly (IN), Heidi Heitcamp (ND) and Joe Manchin (WV)” Q) Name three Democrats up for reelection, [Read More]

By: Mike McDaniel    I have often written about the nature of progressivism and progressives. The election of Donald Trump, and his obvious determination to do what he promised to do during the campaign—something of a rarity in American politics to be sure–have driven progressives over the ragged edge of sanity, [Read More]

Obamacareless

March 24, 2017 1willford 0

By Mike McDaniel    The grand promise of Obamacare repeal went down in flames today as President Trump ordered the hapless Paul Ryan to postpone the scheduled vote on their Obamacare semi-sort-of-partial repeal bill, phase 1.whatever. Oh, it would be easy for me to observe that the Republicans had seven long [Read More]
