Democrats have used a lot of gimmicks over the years to gain support and votes for their candidates, but their latest efforts to use sex to sell their decidedly unsexy candidates might just win the award for Most Ridiculous Millennial Outreach Gimmick of 2014.

Jeffrey Goldberg writing in The Atlantic, The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here: The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official…

Rewind to a few months ago when we reported that McDonald’s appeared to be testing touchscreen ordering devices: McDonald’s employees who picketed for a better living wage (whatever that means) may come to regret that decision. According to a Redditor, a McDonald’s in Illinois replaced their cashiers with machines.  The machines appear to be the cousins of the…

You don’t need polls to tell you that there is a fearful, ornery mood out there. But it is confirmed by the polls, and Democrats are the primary recipients of that anger. We wrote about this a week ago, Election 2014: America “completely out of control” and “women feel unsafe”. The mood does not…

Several years ago I realized I wasn’t the bleeding heart liberal I fancied myself. This realization wasn’t marked by any one salient incident, but was a process. Along the road to Conservatism, I began consuming as much ideological history as I could get my hands on. Even today, one of my…

It seems like it has fallen off the media radar completely. Because Ebola. Because ISIS. Because 2014 Midterms. Because Obama. Because the Imperial Bureaucracy.

To provide consistently good results, especially for the state’s most vulnerable and troubled residents, agencies need to focus on outcomes, learn from their errors, and preserve and replicate approaches…
