Supreme Court Affirms Conviction In Gun “Straw Purchase” Case

Posted by  ▪  June 16, 2014

United States–the firearm “straw purchase” gun case–in which it affirmed Abramski’s convictions.  (The full-length opinion is embedded at the bottom of this post.) In reaching it’s decision…

New Republic Unelectable Whiteness of Scott Walker 2

New Republic’s race-baiting of Scott Walker just a 2016 warm up

Posted by  ▪  June 16, 2014

White Liberals bashing White Republicans for being White is an intellectual cheap traffic trick we will see a lot of in 2016.

Many people were taken by surprise by the rather harsh treatment of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) dished out by The New Republic in its cover story this week.  (See featured image.) John Hinderaker hits the nail on the head: Walker is being smeared as a potential 2016 GOP nominee in…

Posted by  ▪  June 16, 2014

Too little, too late?

Maybe this would have worked had it been done early and often. Chris McDaniel was a radio talk show host. As such, he said some things. When you hear them, it really isn’t that over the top for a radio talk show host. Even Josh Marshall at TPM notes: Not totally shocking for what…

Posted by  ▪  June 15, 2014

PACs supporting incumbent liberal Republican Richard Hanna are airing non-stop TV ads attacking Claudia Tenney as not conservative enough.

Two Super PACs have spent over $700,000 to defeat a Tea Party challenger in New York’s conservative, safe-Republican 22nd Congressional District, against her liberal Republican opponent, incumbent Richard Hanna. The primary is on June 24. The ads are “false flags” because they purport to be supporting conservative causes and the most conservative candidate…

Eric Cantor: Laura Ingraham attacks cheapened the debate

Posted by  ▪  June 15, 2014

Defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) hit the Sunday news programs this morning in a curt manner and seemed to lay some blame for his loss on radio talk show host Laura Ingraham cheapening the debate. Laura took it in stride. Hilarious this a.m. to be hear new take on #Cantor loss:…
