Oh Elizabeth, there you go again

Posted by

I told you this morning that Elizabeth Warren’s story about her parents having to elope because her father’s family objected to her mother being Native American did not ring true, as a Google search did not reveal her telling that story before even though she has told plenty of stories about…

If you’ve passed up your chance to have “Dinner with Barack” or “Grab a Bite with Mitt,” don’t worry. Another celebrity is deigning to let you join her table. This time, it’s Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour who’s inviting you to join her and Sarah Jessica Parker on June 14 to help…

Have you noticed?  The NY Times seems to be getting an awful lot of inside information lately on how tough Obama has been in the war on terror and Iran. First it was the expansive story about drone warfare, and now about Stuxnet: From his first months in office, President Obama secretly ordered…

The rate rose to 8.2%, but the real story via IBD, Core 25-54 Employment Rates Still Near Historic Lows: The unemployment rate rose slightly to 8.2% in May, holding above 8% for the 40th straight month, the Labor Department reported Friday. But actual employment rates of core working age Americans suggests the…

Elizabeth Warren needs an intervention

I get the feeling that Elizabeth Warren is heading for an Edmund Muskie moment completely of her own making, unless those close to her step in soon. I don’t expect Warren to take advice from her political opponents, but she just can’t seem to take good advice even from her political friends. The latest advice for…

I don’t normally run bumper stickers not actually seen on a car, but a reader created this one and I like it so much, I’ll make an exception to the rule. From reader Andy:

Will someone tell Restore Our Future PAC to stop the anti-Santorum ads

Posted by
5/31/2012 at 10:26pm
I have tweeted about this before, but tonight there were at least two anti-Santorum ads run on Fox News by Restore our Future, the pro-Romney PAC. It’s the Big Spender ad which now has been taken down from YouTube, but still plays on national television: Will you stop already. I realize you probably made the…

Providence update – big union concessions prevent bankruptcy

Posted by
5/31/2012 at 6:29pm
I’ve written numerous times over the past two years about the horrible fiscal mess David Cicilline (D-RI01) left behind in Providence when he was Mayor, and how he concealed the problem from voters during his 2010 congressional race. The city has been teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, but a tentative deal…

Big corporations are not your friend (Wal-Mart caves to Color of Change on ALEC edition)

Posted by
5/31/2012 at 4:32pm
Because large corporations are under continual attack from the left, there is a tendency for the right to think of big corporations as ideological compatriots. They are not, at least not if they are public.  By and large they are large entities run by politically weak people who will cave into the…

The objections of Cherokees to Elizabeth Warren’s false claims of Cherokee ancestry have made the news for weeks, first when genealogist Twila Barnes demanded that Warren tell the truth, and just yesterday with the formation of a new group of Cherokees demanding that Warren stop claiming Cherokee ancestry. Warren’s response has been…

Elizabeth Warren has played hard to get on the issue of her supposed Cherokee ancestry. Warren only admits to information after someone has the documents to prove her story wrong, and then her story changes.  She originally denied having any idea why Harvard touted her as Native American, and denied using that…

Remember that next Tuesday is the recall election in Wisconsin. A good Marquette poll yesterday deflated hopes on the left that the recall race was tightening.  But Walker is not taking any chances, releasing this ad against Barrett: More devastating news for the recall effort is that public employee union enrollment has dropped by…

Gov. Deval Patrick runs interference for Elizabeth Warren on false Cherokee claim

Posted by

This is beyond bizarre.  I had heard about Deval Patrick saying something about how the people of Massachusetts don’t care about Elizabeth Warren’s false claim of Cherokee heritage, but until I saw this video (via Michael Patrick Leahy), I didn’t realize just how bad the press conference was. There is something seriously wrong…
