Scott Brown never misrepresented himself or his intentions.

Scott Brown’s important place in history

Posted by
2/2/2013 at 10:30am
Scott Brown announced yesterday that he decided not to run for the Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.  While I would have preferred he run, I can’t say I blame him. After all, Massachusetts elected Elizabeth Warren, someone who demonstrably misrepresented her ethnicity for employment purposes both in professional publications and for the purpose…

Those are the reports. Via Ynet: Just four days after Iran proudly announced it had successfully launched a monkey into space – a move seen as proof of a technological breakthrough which may help the Islamic Republic advance its nuclear program, London’s Times newspaper is questioning the Iranian claims. The British paper said Friday…

Today would have been Andrew Breitbart’s 44th birthday; he passed away last year on March 1, 2012. I think there’s another facet of his experience that we ought to appreciate on his birthday. Andrew spoke often of his conversion from living a life outside of the political world to one completely immersed in…

I’m interviewed in The Washington Times Communities section, with a fairly nice description and graphic: Since it went online during late 2008, Legal Insurrection has established  itself as a unique legal blog. With a focus on current events, and analyzation  of these from a distinctively center-right perspective, it attracts no small  number…

Last Sunday, I attended a candidate forum with those seeking to replace Cong. Jesse Jackson, Jr. at Reverend Wright’s former church (he’s still Pastor Emeritus), Trinity United Church of Christ. 22 candidates have filed to replace the mentally ill congressman, 17 Democrats and 5 Republicans. The candidates Sunday were pl…

Ted Cruz’s not “bogus attack” on Hagel

Posted by
2/1/2013 at 9:42am
Chuck Hagel was an embarrassment yesterday at this confirmation hearing.  John Podhoretz has it right: Well, as a result of this confirmation hearing — the most disastrous of its kind since another veteran senator, John Tower, blew himself up in his pursuit of the same post back in 1989 — Hagel has…

He died this morning at age 88. I didn’t always agree with him, but he was a unique character and a fierce defender of our quality of life, the law, and Israel. There are few people who established such a force of personality. Update — via Twitchy:

From John: Found this gem whilst delivering mail in a large Democrat-run city in Connecticut. I guess if you’re always on the road to Utopia, technically there’s still hope.

There are Times that we need to stick up for The NY Times. Whatever we have said about The Times, we don’t regret. But we stand with The Times when it gets hacked by China: For the last four months, Chinese hackers have persistently attacked The New York Times, infiltrating its computer systems and…

Me or We: Stanford study concludes self-interest wins out over society’s

Posted by

A study entitled “In the Land of the Free, Interdependent Action Undermines Motivation” published this month from Stanford University researcher MarYam Hamedani concludes that appeals to community motivation, what they call “interdependence,” are less compelling than independent behaviors when addressing social challenges. In other words, if you’re trying to get people to go…

One of the great frustrations the past several months (years) is completely inarticulate leadership on the Republican side.  The “fiscal cliff” was just another typical debacle in failed ability to explain ourselves. Compare almost any press conference or speech or other communication by almost any Republican figure with the performance Ted Cruz…
