Rhode Island is being crushed by pension debt, our cities are suffocating, we’re driving businesses away with regulatory minutiae, and we’re hemorrhaging young people.  Oh, and we just threw away up to $75 million on a video game company run by a former baseball player. So what are our Governor and legislature spending…

Sheldon Whitehouse, no will, no way

Posted by
6/14/2012 at 6:28pm
Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) earned a special place in the annals of odious Senatorial speeches when, on the eve of the Obamacare vote in the Senate in December 2009, he invoked Kristallnacht and lynchings when speaking of opponents of Obamacare: History cautions us of the excesses to which these malignant, vindictive passions can ultimately lead. Tumbrels…

There are times it’s good just to be a spectator. I’m not going to try to sort this out, I’ll just note that the “Stop Rush” movement has turned on one of its most prized Twitter activists, or that activist has turned on it, depending who you believe. I don’t care to believe…

Breaking now! — Sandra Fluke endorses Obama

No one could have seen this coming.  This could be the moment when Obama’s campaign stopped receding. Sandra Fluke endorses Obama in an op-ed at CNN.com (because MSNBC.com was not available): Obama is committed to rebuilding our economy upon the values of fairness and opportunity and the belief that all Americans, both men…

Elizabeth Warren: “I’m not backing off from my family” on Cherokee claim

Posted by

Elizabeth Warren is standing by her claim of Cherokee heritage even though there is no evidence to back up that claim, and plenty of evidence that it is not true. On Morning Joe this morning she refused to back down even an inch.  She also mocked the Boston Herald, which has discovered many…

Yesterday I posted about Joe Scarborough bad-mouthing bloggers sitting in the basement eating Cheetos. Last night Michelle Malkin encountered the same attitude from Juan Williams (jump ahead to 6:45 if you don’t have much time)(via HotAir): I’ll tell you what Michelle, I’m a real reporter, not a blogger out in the blogosphere somewhere … Bloggers can’t let up…

No one saw this coming. We have followed the saga of the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard for over a year. The decision on whether to grant endagered species status to the lizard was not expected until tomorrow.  Granting protected status to the lizard would have threatened oil production and exploration in west Texas and eastern…

Florida prosecutor Angela Corey has come under withering criticism from Alan Dershowitz for overcharging and leaving out important details in the Affidavit of Probable Cause filed in connection with the charge of Second Degree Murder lodged against George Zimmerman. Corey allegedly responded by threatening to sue Dershowitz and Harvard.  This appears to…

I posted last night about how Obama’s support among a core constituency, Jews in New York, has cracked. Support for Obama also is cracking among blacks in North Carolina: President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among  African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy  Polling shows. The poll…

More from Sandy’s road trip: We arrived an intermediate destination, Culver, Indiana, late Friday night. Culver is a small mid-west town in Marshall County, about 50 miles south of South Bend. It is perhaps best known for the Culver Academies, composed of the Culver Military Academy founded in 1894 and the Culver…

Jews are a core Democratic liberal constituency, except for Orthodox Jews. In the greater New York City area, there is a demographic time bomb for Democrats in the form of a surge in Orthodox Jewish children who now constitute over 60% of all Jewish children in the region: The New York City area’s Jewish…

Friend of the blog @SGLawrence had her Twitter account mysteriously suspended last night. She has been very active tweeting conservative messages (including many LI posts) and engaging with “others with opposing views” on Twitter. We can’t be sure why her account was suspended, but it fits the pattern of #TwitterGulag which many c…
