Another one of those anomolies which makes the unemployment rate look better than it is.  The rate as calculated drops when people drop out of the work force because they no longer are counted as unemployed. So while the media and Obama campaign probably will try to spin the drop as a…

Who said that? The same person who says — in agreement with a position I took long ago — Could Elizabeth Warren Cost Obama The Election? Obama’s riff on “you didn’t build that” remains, in my view, the most serious mistake of his campaign so far. There’s a reason the Romneyites have seized on…

on just one bumper sticker. From the Turfmann: Offered for your amusement, spied in Barney Frank’s Congressional District in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. “Obama Sucks too much for just one bumper sticker.” All the best – keep up the good work!

Composite acceptance speech

I just tuned in to hear Chains Biden tell the already debunked story about Obama’s mother fighting with the insurance company, and relating how that story reflects what makes Barack tick and who he is.  What a perfect start to the night. A presidency built on myth and composite truth.  What in the old days they called…

Drew Peterson convicted of murder

I’ll admit I haven’t been following this case very closely. But it seems newsworthy that he was convicted in a circumstantial case (h/t creeper): Retired Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson was found guilty Thursday of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, the verdict eliciting a gasp from a packed Will County courthouse and ending a case…

Help our efforts to expose the truth about Elizabeth Warren

9/6/2012 at 3:30pm
If you have been following this blog, you know that we have gone where others have not gone in helping to tell the story about Elizabeth Warren’s false claim to be Cherokee, how she used it in her career, and how she gave at best misleading responses when confronted. Whether it’s reporting…

In which I spend an entire hour talking about Elizabeth Warren

Posted by

Well, 39 minutes and 49 seconds to be precise, once you take out the news breaks and commercials. I was a guest Tuesday night on Nightside with Dan Rea on WBZ 1030, the Boston superstation that covers all of New England: A group of concerned Native American Democrats, including the great-grandson of Geronimo,…

At last, the Republican nominee for GA-12 is official

After a string of recounts and runoffs, it’s official that Rep. Lee Anderson will be the Republican nominee in Georgia’s 12th Congressional District. Georgia election officials say a recount has upheld state Rep. Lee Anderson as the winner of the Republican primary runoff in the state’s 12th Congressional District. Secretary of State Brian…

Last night was not as painful as expected. I could not believe the Democrats put Sandra Fluke on in prime time. She was pathetic, a self-absorbed self-pitying self-ish caricature of the entitlement mentality. Liz Warren was not on her game. The MSM is portraying her as giving a great speech, and…

Sent with the subject line “Will you defend me?” Professor, Ah, the American Community Survey. Have you received it lately? This is the second time in 2 years for me.

Pain Night at DNC (Update – Reader Poll added)

This is going to be a painful night to sit through. We will have to sit through 20 or so minutes of Liz Warren giving her standard lashing of business and Republicans, playing the holier than thou card.  There are few prominent politicians less deserving of such a role.  Some late entries…

That’s the title of a new video released by the Massachusetts Republican Party. Whereas our video (about 10,000 views as of this writing) focused on Warren’s deception during the campaign, this video focuses on the people she has hurt the most. The ending quote from a full-blooded Cherokee is “The DNC should be ashamed of themselves…

At least this time Dick Durbin didn’t go all Godwin on us like he did last time. Even though Democrats do seem to be throwing around Nazi analogies out of frustration, Durbin didn’t go there. But this was embarrassing, even for the senior Senator from Illinois. When I saw it last night live I…
