Coming soon: Executive action freed from electoral concerns

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

Is there anything that can be done to stop Obama’s post-election executive actions?

Last week, the Wall Street Journal released a report on Barack Obama’s latest push to fulfill his most famous campaign promise—achieving the permanent closure of U.S. detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Senior administration officials are saying that the President is serious about coming through on the Gitmo closure, and is considering…

How Zimmerman Myth Became Academic Truth

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

Academic paper by law professor perpetuates untrue claims that Zimmerman followed Martin contrary to police instructions

Well, this is interesting. I came across the University of Miami Law School Summer 2014 edition of their law review, and noted that it had a particular focus on Stand-Your-Ground. Awesome! I dug right into the Foreword, “Stand Your Ground” in Context: Race, Gender, and Politics,” by University of Miami School of Law Professor Donna Coker. As…

Paul Krugman: Obama one of most successful presidents ever

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

If bigger, more intrusive government and a lowering of U.S. status in the world is the test, then Obama is wildly successful

This is a fascinating glimpse into the progressive mind. Paul Krugman was interviewed on ABC’s This Week and just couldn’t say enough about what a great president Obama has been. Ryan Lovelace of National Review has the story: Krugman: Obama One of the Most Successful Presidents in American History On ABC’s This Week, New York…

Absolutely classic Rhode Island story

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

Only in Rhode Island

You may not fully appreciate this unless you are from my former home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. As mentioned here before, twice-convicted former Providence Mayor Vincent “Buddy” Cianci not only is running for Mayor a third time (as an Independent), he is leading in the polls. Buddy’s first conviction…

The most amazing pro-Israel Yom Kippur sermon

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

Rabbi Angela Buchdahl: “Israel is our motherland. Israel is family…. Israel is the beating heart of our people. And Israel is ours.”

One of the most disturbing trends I witness on campuses is the way some — just some, by no means a majority — of leftist Jewish students have fallen prey to, and espouse, anti-Israel propaganda expertly generated by groups like Jewish Voice for Peace and its comrades in arms, groups like…

Is Ebola about to go wild?

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

The protocol “works” in Dallas, but health worker “breaches protocol” and contracts disease.

No, of course not, because we have it under control. Oh, wait, ‘Heroic’ Health Worker Becomes Second U.S. Ebola Case: A Texas health care worker who cared for Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for the disease, hospital officials said Sunday. The worker became infected despite…

Have you hugged your blogger today?

D.O.B. October 12, 2008 The first post was Obama is Door No. 2.  Read it. And weep. How would I assess the world today as opposed to six years ago? We are a nation in decline by design, not by necessity.  People who don’t recognize that reality are fooling themselves. As for us, I think…

Jay Carney Predicts a Good Year for Republicans

Posted by  ▪  October 12, 2014

“Look, it’s not a good dynamic for Democrats out there.”

The last time we checked in with former White House spokesman Jay Carney he was predicting doom for Democrats in the midterms. It looks like he hasn’t changed his mind. It’s also interesting to note that Carney is acknowledging the fact that so many Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama. From the Washington…

Joni Ernst up by 1 pt in new Des Moines Register Poll (#IASEN)

Posted by  ▪  October 11, 2014
Remember when a recent Des Moines Register poll showed Republican Joni Ernst up by 6 points over Bruce Braley, and Democrats had a complete meltdown? And I shouted Sooey! A new poll shows that the gap has closed, with Ernst up 1 point, via Des Moines Register: Iowa’s blitzkrieg U.S. Senate race is now…

Talking point: Republicans don’t really want the Secret Service to protect Obama

Posted by  ▪  October 11, 2014

Finding inconsistencies where none exist.

In a recent appearance on MSNBC, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank suggested an inconsistency between Republican desires to remove Obama from office, and Republican complaints that the Secret Service was not adequately protecting Obama from harm. Why is that inconsistent? Can’t we both oppose a president and want to protect the President?…

California Election Snapshot: Ghosts of Past, Present and Future Collide

Posted by  ▪  October 11, 2014

Jerry Brown is still around, but hoping for Barbara “Ma’am” Boxer to retire.

In the wake of news that my future congressional representative may be someone with sound fiscal awareness, and since I am nothing if not optimistic, I took a glace at the status of the California governor’s race today. This race pits our state’s longest serving governor, Jerry Brown, against the Republican Neel…

Bill Whittle – Today’s Liberals Aren’t Liberal

The newest edition of Firewall with Bill Whittle struck a chord with me because he launches his monologue by talking about something one of his liberal friends posted on Facebook. As a New England lifer, I have lots of liberal friends and I hardly ever go on Facebook anymore because I can’t…

Colorado votes on “personhood” (again)

Posted by  ▪  October 11, 2014

Is this amendment a veiled attempt at criminalizing abortion?

On November 4, Colorado residents will have to decide whether or not to change their criminal code to include an “unborn human being” in the definition of a “person.” Proponents of the measure, dubbed “Amendment 67,” say that the goal of the initiative is to protect pregnant women, but opponents say…

Three Weird Myths About Marissa Alexander That People Think Are True

The truth about the “warning shot,” garage doors, and the couple’s history of domestic abuse

Marissa Alexander was back in the news, as her lawyers try to preclude state prosecutors from getting truthful but damaging evidence against her before the jury (details on this below). With her trial now only about 6 weeks away, the misinformation machinery will be spinning up to top speed. As a…
