Why are Massachusetts Democratic machine Doughboys so afraid of Marisa DeFranco? (#MA06)

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014

and Doughgirls, too.

If you have not heard of Marisa DeFranco before, you probably think from the title that this post is about what Massachusetts liberals like to refer to as a Right Wing Extremist. But no, Legal Insurrection readers have known for years that Marisa DeFranco is a true blue collar, real thing liberal…

Will an independent Kurdistan emerge from Syria-Iraq chaos?

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014

Next year in Kurdistan?

We’ve been writing about the lack of a free and independent Kurdistan for years, It’s time for a free and independent Kurdistan. While the Palestinian agenda has dominated every international forum, the much more populous and ethnically distinct Kurds have been mostly ignored.  In part, this is because the Kurds span several nation…

Elizabeth Warren’s War on Mitch McConnell may actually help him (#KYSEN)

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014

Having über liberal Senator with questionable authenticity inject herself into the race for retribution isn’t helpful to Alison Lundergan Grimes

The Kentucky Senate race is essentially tied in the polling. A poll released today by a Republican pollster shows Alison Lundergan Grimes up by 3 points, within the margin of error. Elizabeth Warren is about to inject herself into the race in a big way. Warren’s student loan bill, which even an author…

WaPo: Anthony Brown presided over failure, but he’d make great MD Governor

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014

Leave No Lieutenant Governor Behind

As Bryan Jacoutot documented here three months ago, Maryland’s health exchange was a complete failure. In private industry or nearly any other field of endeavor, an employee who is responsible for such a visible failure would be subject to demotion or firing. But this is politics. And this is Maryland. So the…

Republican Doug Ose to face incumbent Dem Ami Bera in #CA07

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014
Last week, Doug Ose (R) won the second spot in the blanket primary for California’s 7th Congressional District. Incumbent Ami Bera (D) took the first spot, winning 47% of the votes. Of course, Igor Birman (or Elizabeth Emken) would have made a better candidate, at least in the sense that e…

Hillary Clinton and the Taliban Five: What, me worry?

Posted by  ▪  June 12, 2014

Hillary Clinton says “these five guys are not a threat to the United States.”

If Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, her Republican opponent had better show part of this clip. I’m surprised it isn’t being talked about more, because it is positively Obaman in its offensiveness and duplicity, and its contempt for the listener. It also comes across as insincere and unconvincing,…

al-Qaeda aligned Jihadists take three major Iraqi cities, is Baghdad next?

Posted by  ▪  June 11, 2014

Iraq Prime Minister al-Maliki declares state of emergency as gains of Iraq War evaporate after complete U.S. withdrawal.

Al-Qaeda aligned terror groups have made major land gains from the Syrian civil war into the heartland of Iraq over the last several days. Despite the herculean efforts of the United States military with the Multi-National Force in Iraq from 2003 to 2011, Iraq appears to be sliding into violent chaos across…

I can see the Kansas Senate primary from Virginia (#KSsen #VA07)

Posted by  ▪  June 11, 2014

“Something BIG happening in Kansas. We see it everyday in our crowds, our volunteers and our contributions.

Last night’s upset of Eric Cantor shocked everyone. I said it after the Missouri Senate Primary, and it holds even more true now, The Lesson of Iowa and Mississippi primaries: Don’t give up on Kansas: Joni Ernst and Chris McDaniel had no chance of winning, until she won outright and he won but is…

“I’m against lawlessness, and I voted in #VA07″

Posted by  ▪  June 11, 2014

Pro-Amnesty protesters invaded Eric Cantor’s election night headquarters, creating chaos in a perfect metaphor for the immigration debate.

Should be a bumper sticker for those who oppose immigration amnesty and voted last night to defeat Eric Cantor. Alternative national headline: “I’m against lawlessness, and I vote” That lawlessness is reflected at the border where tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors are crossing over in anticipation of amnesty, or at least being…

Pro-Israel Muslim Vassar student’s lonely fight to defend Israel

Posted by  ▪  June 11, 2014

Julian Hassan stood up for Israel against faculty, Students for Justice in Palestine and J Street U

I graduated from Vassar College in May 2014.  I was the President of the Vassar Conservative Libertarian Union, and the anti-Israel fervor found me. Before we go into this sordid story, it gives us perspective on the times to remember that Vassar College was once a great friend of Israel. In 1975, “Students…

“Bad cop” Eric Cantor would have won, “good cop” Eric Cantor lost

Posted by  ▪  June 11, 2014

To the extent amnesty was part of the reason Cantor lost, it was a symptom, not the disease.

No, I didn’t see it coming. We didn’t even plan on live coverage of VA-07, instead focusing on whether Lindsey Graham would avoid a runoff (he did). At some point I started seeing tweets of early VA-07 numbers and thought someone was trolling.  Then I checked and it was no joke. The night of,…
