The Iveys – In The Dark

Posted by
10/8/2012 at 6:27pm
We have featured The Iveys before to a very good reader reaction. The band members are the cousins of LI reader, photographer (also, here, here) and West Texas correspondent Danelle, who also happens to be one of the first to email me whenever I get a national media reference, usually in real time. Danelle’s children and…

A Tale of Two Times

I know a woman who immediately covers her ears when the topic gets to Obama and what he’s done wrong and what he hasn’t done right.  She doesn’t believe any of the things she accidentally overhears and accuses me of making it up.  “Where do you get your news from?” I…

Elizabeth Warren law license problem goes to Court

As you are aware, I have pointed out that Michael Fredrickson, the General Counsel of the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers, has some explaining to do: As detailed here before, within hours of my posting about Elizabeth Warren’s lack of a Massachusetts law license, Michael Fredrickson, the General Counsel of the Massachusetts…

Lehrer technique permitted “a clear view into his head and heart”

No wonder Obama supporters upset at Jim Lehrer

Posted by
10/8/2012 at 1:58pm
Jim Lehrer has come under fire after his perhaps overly relaxed approach to moderating during last week’s presidential debate. It turns out that Lehrer has been advocating the “slow listening” interview technique for some time, and in this case it worked just as planned, permitting the candidates to rise (Romney) or fall…

The Money Badger don’t care about your fundraising rules

There is an investigative report released today at both Breitbart.com an Townhall and Breitbart.com detailing how weak or non-existent security controls allow foreigners to funnel money to the Obama campaign: OFA seems to be taking advantage of a “foreign donor loophole” by not using CVV on their campaign donation page. When you…

The world officially has gone insane

Boston Globe columnist claims Elizabeth Warren’s family suffered anti-Indian discrimination

Posted by
10/8/2012 at 9:59am
Just when I thought I had seen it all, I stumbled up this column by James Carroll in The Boston Globe, How family lore shapes character.  The article takes the “you are who you think you are” defense of Warren to a whole new level. It is other-worldy, as if no facts…

David Cicilline’s Cover Up

Posted by
10/8/2012 at 8:58am
I posted yesterday about the race between David Cicilline (D RI-01) and Republican Brendan Doherty. Cicilline has managed to pull into a small lead because of an over-the-top Mediscare campaign and faded memories of Cicilline’s cover-up of Providence’s financial disaster. The Doherty campaign has just launched a new commercial reminding the public of…

Obama money!

From reader Mori: I spotted this today at the library in Carlsbad, CA. Not sure if you’ve posted this one. I’m noticing more Romney stickers than Obama stickers… hoping my informal survey results carry over to election results.

The paragraph which has not yet been written: A beleaguered people suffering under economic hardship due to the crony statist policies of a political bully who played upon class divisions and used hand-outs to the poor as a political tool, have elected to the presidency a conservative candidate who ran on a…

Preview of VP Debate

Posted by
10/7/2012 at 4:43pm
Paul Ryan is expected to do well in the VP debate, essentially the reverse of what was expected for the presidential debate where Obama was favored going in. The expectations are high, I think too high: Ryan does, however, have a lot of non-debate debating experience dealing with all the Democratic talking points And…

in the psychiatric implosion on the left resulting from Obama’s empty chair performance at the debate? It’s a guilty pleasure … maybe not guilty … just a pleasure. Notice even Andrea Mitchell has trouble with unfettered spin on the jobs numbers. That’s why it’s important to make our voices heard, it doesn’t…

David Cicilline (D RI-01) back to his Mediscare routine

Posted by

I have warned you that former Providence Mayor and current Congressman David Ciciline is one of the most effective Mediscare mongers. In his 2010 run for Congress, during which he lied about the abysmal finances of Providence in order to get elected, Cicilline ran a bus tour of Senior Citizen centers in which he claimed Seniors…

MA Republican mailer – “Elizabeth Warren: The Native American Scandal”

Posted by
10/7/2012 at 8:30am
The Massachusetts Republican State Committee has sent out a mailer, forwarded to me be a reader, which hits Elizabeth Warren very hard on her false claim to be Cherokee. The mailer is very well done because it presents a lot of facts, including a timeline of Warren’s changing self-identifications as White and then Native American, as…
