Hillary jabs Mitt

Posted by  ▪  October 17, 2014

Might she be running for something?

At a recent appearance in Detroit, a city which is falling apart at the seams after decades of Democratic Party rule, Ms. Clinton stuck up for the Obama administration’s auto industry bailouts while making an underhanded jab at Mitt Romney. Dan Merica of CNN reported: Hillary Clinton subtly swipes at Mitt Romney over…

Thanks Deadspin!

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Botched takedown of Cory Gardner helps Cory Gardner.

Deadspin, which is part of Gawker Media, ran a story yesterday that Cory Garnder, the Republican running for Senate in Colorado who is ahead in the polls, had faked his high school football career. It was game over according to the cheerleading section on Twitter. Wow. RT @AdamWeinstein: Ah ha ha ha ha…

“Rape Culture” Justice: Better 10 Innocent Men Suffer, Than 1 Guilty Man Escape

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

“Yes Means Yes” doesn’t empower women — it empowers “rape culture” propagandists

I’ve written previously about California’s new “Yes Means Yes” law, which codifies a strict definition of “affirmative consent” as it applies to students on college campuses. It’s a terrible bill, but some liberals are touting its absolute failure to address any real problems as its greatest achievement. A group of professors at…

Jon Stewart DCCC Email Funding or Die

Fundraising emails: The Ebola of your Inbox

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Jon Stewart hilariously calls out overzealous Democratic campaign emails

If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably experiencing an email inbox inundated with desperate campaign asks. The worst offender this election season is without a doubt the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee). So far, I’ve received emails from Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and even the President himself this midterm cycle. The dramatics and…

Houston Mayor uses lawfare against local churches

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Looks like political vindictiveness after opposition to rights ordinance backed by Mayor.

Houston’s summer was marred by a battle over religious liberties and overreaching government. Sparring over a city ordinance that would force businesses, among other things, to allow transgendered clientele the use of opposite sex restrooms or risk discrimination suits, Bayou City area clergy and the government aren’t exactly on the best of terms. Rather…

Sabato: Martha Robertson all but done (#NY23)(Update: Cook Too)

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Not quite sticking a fork in the campaign, but pretty close, declaring district “Likely Republican”

I can’t remember the last time a non-partisan major national analyst gave Democrat Martha Robertson much chance of winning in my home NY-23 District against incumbent Republican Tom Reed. Maybe early this year, when Robertson was the fresh face of the Democratic Party, the darling of Emily’s List, and a coveted Democratic…

Brown advanced on Wilson despite orders to stop, even after being shot

A black witness who claims to have seen the killing of Mike Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson “from start to finish” and who also purports to have just completed testifying in front of the Grand Jury, has subsequently been interviewed by the local St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper (on condition of anonymity). Key…

CO Dem Mark Udall Can’t Name Any Obama Policies He Would Oppose

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Association with Obama proving toxic at the polls.

In a recent debate, Colorado Democrat Mark Udall was asked which of Obama’s policies he would oppose if elected. He couldn’t name one. Here’s a video by the Washington Free Beacon: Udall’s campaign has focused on the tired Democratic Party meme of the war on women, earning him the nickname “Mark Uterus.” Nia-Malika Henderson of…

This is what happens when you treat Ebola like a JV virus

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Lack of concern, until it was upon us. Just like ISIS.

News has spread on social media that a second Dallas nurse known to be infected with the Ebola virus took a flight to Cleveland while experiencing a low grade fever—an early symptom of the disease. It turns out that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rules lead Amber Vinson to…

October Surprise: Carl DeMaio Hit With Sexual Harassment Accusations (#CA52)

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

DeMaio denies the claims and says his accuser has an ulterior motive

Late last week sexual harassment accusations against Carl DeMaio, the Republican candidate in California’s 52nd district House race, made national headlines. The “New Generation Republican” who seeks to broaden conservatism’s appeal to typically non-Republican groups has categorically denied the claims, calling them “completely false.” The man making the accusations is Todd Bosnich,…

Yikes – Alison Grimes College Dem volunteers cover up Obama shirts to hide connection

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

“They all brought their Obama shirts to campaign in, only to learn that they should not be connecting Alison Grimes to Obama”

Aleister posted this story over at College Insurrection, but it’s worth a cross post here. The George Washington University student newspaper ran a report on College Democrats volunteering for Alison Grimes in Kentucky. In light of Grimes’ repeated refusals to say if she voted for Obama, and attempts to distance herself, it’s not…

Facebook and Apple: Come for the high pay, get your eggs frozen too

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

Seems to me that what’s happening here is the very opposite of “feminism.”

Tech giants Facebook and Apple have come up with a plan to keep their female employees happy and on the job—subsidized egg freezing. Both companies have a reputation for offering posh work environments and cadillac health care plans, but the new program seeks to invest up to $20,000 in benefits to…

Cornell gives deer tubal ligations, everything goes wrong

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

Welcome to my world, people.

We previously wrote about the deer sterilization program run by the Village of Cayuga Heights, NY, which borders the Cornell University campus and has large deer and faculty populations. After years of bitter debate, Cayuga Heights decided that the deer population would be controlled through sterilization at enormous expense: NY Town spends $2,984…
