Two Democratic Senators (Whitehouse and Franken) together with socialist Bernie Sanders have attached co-sponsored an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill which would expand so-called “disparate impact” claims under Title VI.  (added) The amendment was submitted by Sherrod Brown, who is lead…

Yesterday I wrote a post titled Associated Press and the Profit of Mohammed.  Citing a recent story, it said the AP “apparently insists that Mohammed be preceded by the word Prophet.” AP has responded to Legal Insurrection with a denial that the term “Prophet Mohammed” is mandated by the AP stylebook, but every…

Cool tool to help keep me in the bubble

Posted by

As is obvious from my posts, I never read what people outside the conservative bubble say.  So when you see me critiquing almost daily what liberal (and even worse, libertarian) pudits are saying, it’s all an illusion.  I’m deep in the bubble.  So deep, I don’t even know I’m in a bubble. Here…

Wishful thinking on Republican wishful thinking

Posted by

There is no conventional wisdom pushed as hard by the anti-Republican media than the notion that Republicans were in a self-contained media and punditry bubble and refused to believe — or worse yet, deliberately distorted — contrary polling.   Beware this conventional wisdom. I have examined how that conventional wisdom is wrong because it extrapolates…

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird gave a very strong speech (embedded at bottom of post) yesterday at the United Nations against the “nonmember” status for “Palestine,” in violation of the Oslo Accords. Damn fine speech by #Canada.— Act for Israel (@ActForIsrael) November 29, 2012 Canada is following up that rhetoric,Canada recalling diplomats from…

Depending on who you ask, and at what moment in time, the “fiscal cliff” either is End Times, or not. Obama is in campaign mode, as usual, that bizarre never-never-land where negotiating means running to rallies. Given Obama’s permanent campaign, and the lack of seriousness in his proposals, a growing chorus on the…

Yesterday was other-worldly, watching the sick march of hypocrisy on display at the U.N. for the vote in the General Assembly to grant “Palestine” nonmember state status. Of course, “Palestine” already declared independence in 1988 and that declaration was recognized by almost all of the 138 countries that voted “yes” yesterday. What was…

The last we heard of the StopRush movement back in June, it had desended into intrigue, #StopRush was infiltrated, audio recordings and other evidence released.  The one thing StopRush never did, was stop Rush. But they were good at making threats after I exposed the cooordination with Media Matters: .@leginsurrection And Cornell will…

That pretty much sums up the speech of Mahmoud Abbas, the king of nothing, at the U.N. today. I didn’t listen to it, but here are some excerpts (emphasis mine): We have not heard one word from any Israeli official expressing any sincere concern to save the peace process. On the contrary, our people…

We were out-smarted by Team Obama, no doubt about that. But wherein lies the blame?  Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com exposes one possibility, the role of highly-paid, highly-connected consultants, Romney Campaign Paid $33 Million to Two Consulting Firms With Ties to Key Staffers: The Romney campaign spent an estimated $356 million between January 1,…
