Another faux Obama fundraising ad from Patricia. Please, let’s not have another repeat of what happened the last time. It’s fake, but it could be real, which is what’s so frightening: Update:  From friend of the blog Jeff, this pie thing apparently has a history: Of faith, family and pie Of Health Care, Family and Pie An…

Three radio events yesterday, all related to my post Obama and Warren cribbed “build it” narrative from progressive Berkeley Professor. 1. Rush featured the post in a lengthy segment.  I don’t have the audio, but the transcript is here. (Audio added via DailyRushbo): 2. I was a guest on the Lars Larson Show…

Chicagoans are used to politicians running roughshod over our city. It’s a war zone today, but not just from the drug cartel and gang shootings that are ravaging our neighborhoods. The politicians from the local up to the federal think they’re little kings, who use favors and privilege to keep our…

Elizabeth Warren criticized by liberal supporter for almost all-white campaign HQ photo

Obama came under criticism and mockery from the left and right when a photo of his Chicago campaign operation staff had barely a non-white face among them.  All the talk about diversity was not practiced at his HQ. Elizabeth Warren has a similar problem, and has come under criticism from a liberal…

Will high Texas turnout dilute the Tea in Cruz/Dewhurst race?

Posted by

Turnout in this week of early voting for the Republican senate runoff in Texas is looking to be more than double what it was last year. Some say high turnout will favor Dewhurst over Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz, in a sense “diluting the Tea.” The Dallas Morning News crunched the numbers: Two…

Dan Bongino – the speech that should launch him to victory

Posted by

We have written before about Dan Bongino, running for Senate in Maryland against incumbent Ben Cardin. We have to win some races which are not expected. With speeches like this one (h/t Tamminator in Tip Line), Bongino could ignite a spark that achieves the unexpected. You can support Bongino here.

According to Jonathan Capehart of WaPo, there is a very dangerous ad running by the RNC. I have seen this ad numerous times, and didn’t think it was that great: Capehart, however, sees danger, It’s not OK to ignore this pro-Romney ad: … what bothers me is that last line spoken by the narrator as…

Brown: Elizabeth Warren “a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor”

I think this is a winning theme, that Warren will be the Dennis Kucinich / Maurice Hinchey of the Senate, someone who can spout far-left rhetoric and play the anti-factory owner card, but will be marginalized as a Senator. If the people of Massachusetts want someone who will accomplish nothing but headlines,…

Nation of Islam can open a restaurant in Chicago, but not Chick-fil-A?

Even The Boston Globe has come out against the bullying of Chick-fil-A by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino because of the position of Chick-fil-A’s President and his father (the founder) on marriage: The president of Chick-fil-A opposes gay marriage. While this view goes against the grain in a state that made history by embracing…

By now you have heard the Obama and Liz Warren speeches about how no one got rich on his or her own.  Listen to them again, it’s important to hear how they frame the issue almost identically: This narrative is cribbed almost verbatim from the narrative of George Lakoff, a progressive linguistics activist…

This was almost the best day in the existence of those Obama supporters who dream every night about what they can do the next day to tag Mitt Romney as racist. They almost got what they wanted today, or so they thought, because The Telegraph newspaper in Britain quoted a single anonymous…

Best “you didn’t build that” political cartoon

Posted by
7/25/2012 at 1:00pm
A really good political cartoon sums up the absurdity of a situation without much verbiage. This cartoon by A.F. Branco (original here, reprinted with permission) captures perfectly how out of touch Obama is when discussing the role of government in helping individuals succeed. Sure, taxes (including from business owners) go towards building a common…

Posted by

First it was the Mayor of Boston who announced his intention to block business permits for Chick-fil-A not because there is any evidence that it discriminates in employment or services, but because its founder and his son (now the President) support keeping the definition of marriage as one man – one woman. Now an Alderman in Chicago…

The moment I heard Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech, I knew Obama had dug himself a deep hole from which he would have to spend considerable time climbing out of. Via Zeek Miller at BuzzFeed Politics, the Obama campaign and Democrats understand how bad the issue has hurt Obama, and are…

Why hasn’t Elizabeth Warren’s family backed her up on Cherokee claims?

Posted by
7/25/2012 at 9:34am
The question which has not been asked yet by the media, but needs to be. Elizabeth Warren has no documentation that she is Cherokee, Delaware or any other Native American tribe.  The initial claim that Warren was 1/32 Cherokee was withdrawn by the New England Historic Genealogical Society as lacking evidence.  Census and…
