FIRE shreds Ezra Klein and denial of due process to college men

Posted by  ▪  October 17, 2014

Where would Ezra Klein be now if he had been subjected to the kangaroo courts he thinks appropriate for others?

WAJ: This is a guest post by Robert L. Shibley, Senior Vice President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). As “Yes Means Yes” mania sweeps across college campuses, and the lives of innocent men falsely accused are ruined in a witch hunt atmosphere, the FIRE once again is…

Obama Ebola Czar is Dem political operative Ron Klain

Posted by  ▪  October 17, 2014

It’s the politics, stupid.

Hey, that’ll work: President Obama has asked Ron Klain, who served as chief of staff to both Vice President Biden and former vice president Al Gore, as his Ebola response coordinator, according to a White House official. “He will report directly to the president’s homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, and the president’s national…

I have no idea what #GamerGate is

Posted by  ▪  October 17, 2014

Did I miss something?

I’ve seen people writing and tweeting about #GamerGate. I have no idea what that is, still. Looks like it has something to do with Gamers and Liberal Feminists (image below of Christina Hoff Sommers, who has confronted liberal feminists herself): Why @CHSommers is #GamerGate’s based mom. :) pic.twitter.com/fX3ituRvLJ— Mephistopheles (@myfist0) October 17, 2014 I received…

“Loud Music” Killer Sentenced to Life Without Parole

Posted by  ▪  October 17, 2014

Dunn’s narrative of self-defense was ineffective in light of flight from the scene and total absence of corroborating evidence.

In breaking news CNN reports that Michael Dunn, the Florida man who fired multiple rounds at four black teenagers in an SUV after an argument about their loud music, has been sentenced to life without parole.  One of those four teenagers, Jordan Davis, was mortally wounded.  Dunn had argued self-defense as…

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…

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…

Fundraising emails: The Ebola of your Inbox

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…

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…
