I wasn’t going to do an Elizabeth Warren post today.  Really. But in my in-box was a link to this story at The Boston Herald, Elizabeth Warren shuts door on Herald’s inquiry (video at the link): Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren, in a sequel to an awkward on-camera encounter this week about her claim to…

Obama has lost roughly 40% of the Democratic primary vote to an imprisoned felon in West Virginia, to “uncommitted” in Kentucky, and to a Tennesee lawyer who “could fit snugly on Dylan Ratigan’s MSNBC show” and who no one in Arkansas likely had heard of before (and who is suing for his…

We’re just about a month away from the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare. David Hogberg has a column at Investors Business Daily on the political fallout if the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare: A Supreme Court ruling next month striking down Obama-Care would immediately shift the battle to Congress and the campaign trail.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend while remembering the sacrifices of those who gave their lives to defend America and freedom. It seems the neo-socialists don’t want to feel left out during this weekend of patriotism and honoring the fallen. Liberation News, the “newspaper for the party of socialism and liberation,”…

Dear Wisconsin Republicans: Take nothing for granted

There already are efforts to bus supporters of the recall to the polls for early voting. There’s nothing illegal or unethical about that, so long as only eligible voters vote.  But it’s a reminder that some good polling is not a substitute for going to the polls on June 5. Via WISN (video…

When Elizabeth Warren has lost Alan Colmes

Posted by
5/26/2012 at 9:10am
Alan Colmes appears to be going the Ed Schultz route and practically begging Elizabeth Warren just to come clean. Like Schultz, Colmes still is a supporter, but feels a pain from Warren twisting in the winds which have come sweeping off the plains of Warren’s obfuscation and deception. Mary Sanchez, a columnist for…

A bittersweet update to my prior post about Etan Patz. Who knows if this is the real killer.  I guess we’ll find out as more evidence comes out. Hopefully the family will have the closure not only of a conviction, but of being able to bury Etan properly. Via ABC News: video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo…

A number of readers forwarded me the link to an article about Scott Brown’s demand that Harvard correct its filings with the Labor Department to remove Elizabeth Warren’s listing as a Native American.  Reader Tom wrote: Professor: Senator Brown’s now taking on HARVARD in his campaign. It’s become middle America vs. the Elites…

The corporate social responsibility gamble

Posted by
5/25/2012 at 1:56pm
The free market, where it is still free, has a way of keeping companies in line that stray too far from their consumers’ core values. That was the counter-argument (not original) I always made when, during business school at Cornell, some of our professors would tote corporate social responsibility and the “triple…

There is a lot out there today about Brett Kimberlin, who either himself or through supporters has been going after various conservative bloggers who have called attention to his past. You already know about Aaron Walker. A must read post, and I mean MUST READ, is by Patrick Frey a/k/a Patterico, and the hell he…

As Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker enjoys a more confident position with the release of new jobs and poll numbers, some on the left are backing away from the import of the outcome of his recall race. Two new polls released Thursday reveal that Governor Walker (R) leads Mayor Barrett (D) by margins…

While Elizabeth Warren is doing well in the polls, her story about not promoting herself as Native American for professional purposes continues to fall apart. Michael Patrick Leahy, writing at Breitbart.com today, links to an article in the Spring 1993 issue of the student-run Harvard Women’s Law Journal, when Warren was a visiting professor at Harvard Law.  (Side…

Don’t say I haven’t been warning you. While the secondary boycott of Rush Limbaugh has been only marginally effective, Color of Change has had more success getting major companies to drop their participation in the American Legislative Exchange Counsel (ALEC) by falsely tying ALEC’s support of “stand your ground” laws to the Trayvon Marin…
