Wendy Davis plays rape card on Greg Abbott

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2014

Down in the polls, Wendy Davis reaches for the gutter with ad suggesting Greg Abbott is soft on rape.

Wendy Davis’s run for governor against Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is one of the most high profile top-ticket races in the country. The political class (if not yet voters at large) is keeping a close eye on the back-and-forth battle for control of the narrative, and the latest ad from the…

“Sweden ever so quickly has gone from so-called anti-Zionism to open anti-Semitism”

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2014

Swedish Jew visiting Israel told by friend: “Don’t come back here, you have no idea how bad it has become since you left.”

Less than a week ago we wrote about how The anti-Semitic shame of Malmö, Sweden continues with attack on Rabbi. It’s part of an outburst of open, unabashed anti-Semitism throughout Europe and the world, but particularly Europe, under the mask of opposition to Israel’s Gaza war. This trend did not start with the…

JournoList 2.0

Posted by  ▪  August 10, 2014

The “Gamechanger Salon” list is Journolist 2.0, and it’s helping progressives control the narrative.

A Media Trackers open records request has revealed a secret Google group aimed at helping liberals influence public policy by driving the media narrative. “Gamechanger Salon” is a (now not-so-) secret Google group with a membership of over 1000 left wing influencers. Media Trackers discovered the group after filing an open records…

Yes they can take what you have, because … fairness

Why do you hate fairness?

This big Dodge oilfield truck was parked in the Goodwill Thrift Store parking lot in Roswell. The bumper sticker truth needs no interpretation. We all have to shop at Goodwill Thrift, because of the Obama curse. Enjoying your blog all these years. Beloved

The way you talk about your garden may be racist

It. Never. Stops. Via David Thompson, The Telegraph reports, Is Gardeners’ Question Time racist?: It is the softly spoken radio show that provides good-natured help and advice to thousands of gardeners every week. So regular listeners to Gardeners’ Question Time may be horrified to discover it has been accused of peddling racial stereotypes…. But Dr…

Steven Salaita petition organizer wants to “uproot” Israel

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2014

On Twitter they tell us how they really feel, and how they really feel is Israel must be destroyed.

If reports are true, Steven Salaita’s horrific and bizarre Twitter feed cost him a job offer at U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As of this moment, the reason behind the denial of a position is not known, but that hasn’t stopped Salaita’s supporters from portraying the denial as based on Salaita’s…

Democrats Contort Themselves to Support Obama’s Airstrikes in Iraq

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2014

You could say Democrats were for bombing Iraq, before they were against it, before they were for it again.

Protesting the Iraq War under President Bush was a cottage industry for Democrats, even though they voted for it. But now that Obama’s hand has been forced, Democrats are doing their best to lend cautious support. Kristina Wong of The Hill describes the liberal predicament: Left frets over Iraq mission creep The president’s…

McDonald’s Replacing Cashiers With Machines?

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2014

“Would you like fries with that?” may soon be a long forgotten relic of American pop culture.

McDonald’s employees who picketed for a better living wage (whatever that means) may come to regret that decision. According to a Redditor, a McDonald’s in Illinois replaced their cashiers with machines.  The machines appear to be the cousins of the ones found in grocery stores, big box stores, and CVS that allow cus…

Obama at pre-vacation press conference: Don’t blame me for current Iraq debacle

Posted by  ▪  August 9, 2014

Puts in issue why U.S. didn’t reach Status of Forces Agreement years ago, but why didn’t U.S. at least offer help months ago before ISIS gained control of much of country?

President Obama gave a press conference this morning on Iraq before heading out for vacation: A particularly controversial portion was the assertion (starting at 7:50 of video) that it wasn’t his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq. Obama says puzzled by second-guessing of pulling out Iraq troops: “As if…

Another Week of Democrats Behaving Badly

Posted by  ▪  August 8, 2014

Booker and Walsh and Hoyer, oh my!

This has been a particularly troubling week for Democrats’ bad behavior on display for the public. First, as Professor Jacobson reported yesterday, a plagiarizing national Democrat politician had to step aside (no, not Joe Biden). But Walsh is just the tip of the iceberg for Democrats this week. Probably the most shocking…
