Judicial Watch: IRS “did not undertake any significant efforts to obtain” missing Lerner emails

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2014

Fits a pattern.

Democrats who had hoped for at least a week to sleep off their election night hangovers are getting no rest after the latest disclosure of court documents by advocacy group Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch has spent a great deal of time and resources seeking information about the IRS targeting of conservative groups. In September,…

Jury nullification is defense strategy in Rasmieh Odeh trial (#Justice4Rasmea)

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2014

Protests around the courthouse are part of a larger defense strategy.

Rasmieh (Rasmea) Odeh is a convicted Palestinian terrorist on trial in Detroit for falsely stating on her 1994 visa application that she had not been arrested or convicted of a crime or served time in prison. (Indictment here.) Odeh became a naturalized citizen in 2004, and now faces up to 10 years…

Delusional Democrats

Democrats had a chance

Posted by  ▪  November 6, 2014

In their own minds.

Obama described Democratic Party losses in the 2010 midterms as a shellacking. If 2010 was a shellacking, this midterm was a political drubbing of epic proportions. Remind me again — which one is the “regional party” that has lost touch with America? pic.twitter.com/PsvbszSokt— Kyle Smith (@rkylesmith) November 5, 2014 Not everyone believed it…

We interrupt post-election gloating for news about the DOJ Zimmerman Grand Jury

Posted by  ▪  November 5, 2014

Key witness Taaffe apparently a no-show, Federal attorneys, FBI, spokespeople all decline to comment

The Orlando Sentinel newspaper is reporting that it appears as if no actual witnesses showed up for today’s Federal Grand Jury convened to determine if civil rights charges should be brought against George Zimmerman for his self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin. The DOJ had subpoenaed Frank Taaffe, a self-declared “friend” of Zimmerman’s,…

A lot of history was made last night

Last night was an historic night for the Republican party. As with any election, all kinds of interesting tidbits miss the major headlines. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. “Get Money Out of Politics!!” Sometimes money isn’t everything, especially not when you have a beard like this guy. This Rhode Island governor candidate won…

California Mini-Wave: Democrats No Longer Supermajority

Posted by  ▪  November 5, 2014

Best news: Sandra Fluke Loses Her Election

As I discussed earlier this week, the local races would be vitally important in this election. I must admit, I despaired that California would completely miss-out on this “change election”, and simply hoped that we might be able to elect Republican Carl DeMaio into CA-52′s congressional seat — though I did predict…

Is Maryland going purple?

Posted by  ▪  November 5, 2014

The wages of Democratic arrogance.

Maryland hasn’t gone purple. Yet. But we have a Republican Governor for just the third time in 48 years. (Spiro Agnew was elected in 1966 and served until 1969, when he went to White House as Richard Nixon’s vice president. Bob Ehrlich was elected in 2002, but was defeated for re-election four years later…

Will Obama go rogue? (Reader Poll)

Posted by  ▪  November 5, 2014

All he has left is his legacy.

The most dangerous two years are upon us, as Obama has nothing to lose but his legacy. Preserving that legacy, as unpopular as it has proven to be, is all he has now. Obama himself said his policies were on the ballot. And the people spoke last night, rejecting those policies. Obama has…

Flashback – When Iranians chant “Death to America” they mean “I’d really like to visit Disneyland”

Posted by  ▪  November 4, 2014

U. Michigan Professor Juan Cole actually said that. On TV.

Today is the anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. Proving that not much has changed on the Iranian street or in its government, tens of thousands took to the streets to chant “Death to America,” as reported by The Washington Post: Thousands of Iranians chanted “Down with…
