Posted by  ▪  April 24, 2012
*UPDATE 4/25: EAG released a second video on “Gender-Bender” day at the school. Chicago public school Jones College Prep apparently believes school is the appropriate venue to train students in nonviolent protesting: Philip Jackson was brought in to lead the training and provide students with specific ideas like “building a cemetery with the…

Posted by  ▪  April 24, 2012
Appropos of Anne’s post earlier today about the Occupy movement, Citizens United is planning a roll out of Occupy Unmasked. It’s the culmination of what Andrew Breitbart always said about the Occupy movement, that it was part and parcel of the Democrats’ political plans. Video h/t Common Cents:

Occupy and the seemliness of capitalism

Posted by  ▪  April 24, 2012
Last Thursday I was a panelist for the Heritage Foundation’s Occupy Wall Street: A Post-Mortem event. During the Q&A session, Alex Cortes of Let Freedom Ring asked a question  about the “unseemliness” of today’s capitalist winners. It was part of a larger discussion of what drives Occupy protesters–and if images portrayed…

2007: Harry Reid and Dick Lugar agree, the Iraq surge is not working

Posted by  ▪  April 24, 2012
Dick Lugar touts his foreign policy expertise and influence, something which Brian Bolduc at National Review today finds is suspect. One thing Lugar does not tout is that he joined Harry Reid in 2007 in announcing that the surge in Iraq was not working and should be stopped. Reid’s statement in May 2007 now is internet…

If a War on Women falls in the forest …

Posted by  ▪  April 23, 2012
There is a war on women, but they will not talk about it in the media, academia, or in politics (h/t HotAir): So: Yes, women all over the world have problems; yes, the United States has yet to elect a female president; and yes, women continue to be objectified in many “Western”…

Who exactly is being deprived of the same “chance” Obama had to get an education?

Posted by  ▪  April 23, 2012
Obama’s exact quotation (via Instapundit), in making his point about not being born with a silver spoon in his mouth: Somebody gave me an education.  I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth.  Michelle wasn’t.  But somebody gave us a chance — just like these folks up here are looking for…

Lugar = Desperate = Repeat = Lugar = Desperate …

Posted by  ▪  April 23, 2012
I think the Richard Mourdock campaign finally has hit on a theme which needs repeating. Richard Lugar is running a desperate campaign, trying to distract from his record and to conjure up bizarre claims against Mourdock, such as the “Confederate Tie,” and false and misleading claims about Mourdock’s record. Bringing out Mitch Daniels…

Orrin Hatch for Senate

Posted by  ▪  April 23, 2012
I’m not jumping on the anti-Orrin Hatch bandwagon, and not making his primary race part of Operation Counterweight. Orrin Hatch is no Dick Lugar.

Silverware

Spooned: Mark Levin: “Obama, it would seem, wants to deny to others what he will not deny to himself. He wants to deny to the children of others what he will not deny to his own children. He wants to amass riches, but he doesn’t want you to amass wealth. He doesn’t…
