A conservative electoral loss is a terrible thing to let go to waste

More “conservative echo chamber bubble cocoon” nonsense

Posted by

I pointed out yesterday that there is no reason to believe that there is any more of a conservative echo chamber/bubble/cocoon than there is a liberal echo chamber/bubble/cocoon, Politico wants conservatives to stop reading alternatives to Politico. Don’t think that false meme comes only from the left.  This post by Doug Mataconis at…

Hey, anyone know how 3rd Amendment supporters voted?

Third Amendment supporters are among the most motivated voters, because nothing is more fundamental to our liberty than the right not to have soldiers quartered in our houses in time of peace, or even in war, except in a manner prescribed by law. Without the Third Amendment, the First and Second Amendments don’t mean jack. They…

As I have been pointing out for days, there is a concerted effort based at best on speculation and at worst on malicious intent to have us assume the liberal narrative of why we lost the election by just under … drumroll … three percent, even less in the key battleground…

The Petraeus Timeline: Will We Ever Again Hear the Complete Truth About Anything?

Posted by

Scott Shane in the New York Times gives us the Petraeus timeline and does his best to bury both the lede and the story’s implications. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer that F.B.I. agents had uncovered what appeared to be an extramarital affair…

Teachers filled the ranks at the 2012 Midwest Marxism Conference, which was held Saturday at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. Chicago Teachers Union Vice President Jesse Sharkey, who spoke at one of the breakout sessions, was just one of the hundreds of attendees, many of them teachers, there to strategize about…

Let’s face it, the Obama campaign knew exactly what it was doing with the War on Women campaign. It wasn’t targeting married women, but the single women like Julia who, by the terms of Obama’s own illustration, rely on government for financial stability, including lots of free stuff. We thought the Life of…

I propose a Sense of the Senate resolution recognizing Elizabeth Warren as the first female Native American Senator

Following up on this sarcasm by Eric Larson at Ricochet (h/t reader Danny), legislative action is needed: Is Elizabeth Warren the First Female Native American Senator? If I have this right, then Elizabeth Warren is the first female Native American senator. Surely this is something to be celebrated! Is the press appropriately acknowledging this breakthrough?…

After partial recount, Allen West still just shy of triggering full recount

After partial recount, Allen West still just shy of triggering full recount

Posted by

Under Florida election law, a full recount is triggered when the margin separating the two candidates is 0.5% or less. After a partial recount in St. Lucie’s County, it appears that West has fallen just short of that mark. [Emphasis mine] Tea Party favorite Allen West is vowing to pursue “every legal means…

David Frum announced in November 2011 that Mitt Romney or John Huntsmann must be the nominee, or Frum might leave the GOP: Any other nominee would gravely test my commitment to the political party I’ve supported since I entered the United States as a college student in the fall of 1978. Frum got…

Politico wants conservatives to stop reading alternatives to Politico

Politico wants conservatives to stop reading alternatives to Politico

Posted by

You know how much I dislike Politico, going way back. Politico practices a particularly pernicious anti-Republican, anti-conservative, and anti-Tea Party brand of reporting … the relentless attempt to marginalize under the guise of news.  Politico is no better than The Washington Post (from which its founders came) or The New York Times, but because it is…

Whither small conservative blogs?

Posted by
11/11/2012 at 1:59pm
The inevitable post-election lull seems like a good time to sits and think. And one of the things I sits and thinks about is the future of small conservative blogs. There seems to be a corporate consolidation of blogs on the right and the left.  Already liberals are bemoaning the waning influence of the…

Learning to love the fiscal cliff after the Santa Claus election

Here’s a description of the “fiscal cliff”: So just what is this “fiscal cliff” that has the financial markets rattled and economists and policymakers alike in a tizzy over the potential for sending the economy into another tailspin? It’s a one-two punch of expiring Bush-era tax cuts and major across-the-board spending cuts to the…

This is a follow up to the “Shock the System” post yesterday. As mentioned in that post, College Republicans at Fordham were attacked by the Fordham University President for inviting Ann Coulter to speak. Now the College Republicans have rescinded the invitation. Details at College Insurrection, College Republicans at Fordham Rescind Invitation to…
