Hillary 2016: Pit the voters against…each other

Hillary 2016: Pit the voters against…each other

Posted by
6/8/2015 at 11:30am
The New York Times yesterday featured an article on Hillary Clinton’s electoral strategy for 2016. In short, she apparently is mimicking President Barack Obama’s strategy for his second term. Instead, she is poised to retrace Barack Obama’s far narrower path to the presidency: a campaign focused more on mobilizing supporters in the…

Mike Rowe: What politicians get wrong about poor people

Posted by
6/8/2015 at 10:00am
On the rare occasion Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame wanders into quasi-political discourse, he shares a perspective severely lacking in this overly-politicized world — common sense observation. Usually, these observations are served up via Rowe’s mail bag. Sunday afternoon, Rowe responded to a message from Craig P. Craig wrote: Your constant…

I was against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan before it was cool to be against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. My first post warning of his anti-democratic, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic tendancies was on January 31, 2009, barely four months after the launch of Legal Insurrection in mid-October 2008. We continued to follow…

Incontrovertible: There is NO consensus on “climate change”

I have the pleasure of working with Dr. Roger Cohen, RWC Fellow American Physical Society, to publicize a better understanding of climate science and the flaws associated with the models that are being pushed to generated bad policy. The claim that there is “consensus” among scientists that there is significant, man-made environmental…

Democrats Propose Millions for Gun Control Research

Do you like the idea of tax dollars being used for research to support gun control? Two Democrats introduced legislation last week for that very purpose. The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action reported: Legislation Proposes $60 Million for Anti-Gun Research On Monday, NRA F-rated Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) introduced legislation…

Charles Krauthammer was recently interviewed by Charles R. Kesler of the Claremont Institute who asked for his opinion on the future of liberalism. The conversation begins with Krauthammer’s thoughts on the liberal journal The New Republic, for which Krauthammer served as writer and editor in the 1980’s. He points out that TNR…

We’re Not Wrong About Obama’s American Exceptionalism

6/7/2015 at 1:00pm
Ron Fournier at National Journal has written an extraordinary article, “Republicans Are Wrong About Obama’s American Exceptionalism,” defending Obama’s vision of America as “modern and honest,” as “Reagan-plus.” We, of course, are neither modern nor honest; indeed, we’re frightened because the country is “becoming browner and more accepting of gays and lesbians”: That…

Black Chicago Pastor: Democrat Policies Failing Us

Posted by

As conservatives, we’ve long claimed that Democrat policies disproportionately harm black communities and families.  And we’ve long been ridiculed for making such claims.  Now, however, a black pastor from Chicago’s South Side is inviting Republican, as well as Democrat, presidential candidates to talk to his congregation because he feels that Democrats…

Covered California shows signs of illness

Aleister’s grim update on Vermont’s Obamacare struggles prompted me to double check the status of Covered California, the supposed poster child of successful state exchanges. As I suspected, the prognosis is not good. Covered California has lost bragging rights for highest health-insurance exchange enrollment to Florida, new federal figures show. A total 1.36 million…

Have we “degraded” ISIS?

Posted by

In September of 2014, President Obama addressed the nation and described the counterterrorism strategy that he claimed would be used to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS in the Middle East. Since then, the fight to destroy the Islamic State has encountered setbacks that have caused both seasoned military analysts and casual…

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. The Affordable Care Act was going to bring about the golden age of single payer healthcare in the Green Mountain State. Instead, it went there to die. Activists protested during the new governor’s inauguration, but it made no difference. Now, things are getting worse. Abby Goodnough…

Many people have written about our media which, with few exceptions, has become an arm of the Democratic Party. The other casualty of this era is the world of comedy. Last year, I wrote about it in a piece titled Cowardly Comedy in the Age of Obama. Little has changed since then. Most…
