Did Elizabeth Warren try to game the system?

Posted by
5/1/2012 at 9:53pm
The Elizabeth Warren story is not about whether she is 1/32nd Cherokee. Questions persist as to why Warren listed herself as Native American, a fact as to which she had no proof until yesterday, only in a publication almost exclusively used by other law professors and Deans during a time period in which she was climbing…

Breaking from Bagram: We still are not worthy

Posted by
5/1/2012 at 8:08pm
Obama’s speech from Afghanistan, standing in front of military vehicles at Bagram Air Base, was fairly predictable. Yet in this moment of spiking the football, Obama needed to remind us that we are not yet worthy as a nation (emphasis mine): Our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, coast guardsmen and civilians in Afghanistan have done…

This video, via The NY Sun, is brutal, as Kathleen Sebelius is taken to school by Trey Gowdy (R-SC): An account of the hearing was issued by the Catholic News Agency. It’s almost painful to read. The secretary admits she was unaware of legal precedents confirming religious freedom, even as she sought…

Obama in Afghanistan – Spike it really hard, with everything you have

Posted by

Breaking news is that Obama has made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan to sign a security agreement and will hold a 7:30 p.m. address to the nation from Bagram Air Force Base. At what point does this all backfire?  It’s so transparently political taking place on the anniversary of bin Laden’s killing. The power…

Romney 2007: “We’ll move everything to get him … he is going to pay and he will die”

Posted by

Obama has launched an attack ad quoting Romney as saying he would not “move heaven and earth” to get Osama bin Laden and suggesting Romney would not have given the go ahead. This coverage is typical: Considering what a big deal AxelPlouffe and the media are making, it amazes me that the Romney campaign either is…

Lugar seeks to take Mourdock down with him

Posted by

I have serious problems with Dick Lugar’s record, particularly on his alleged foreign policy expertise. As documented here, Lugar has engaged in repeated wishful thinking on Iran (one more post in the series still to come), and irresponsibly vouched for Obama’s foreign policy credentials just three weeks before the 2008 election. But, there…

Newt: “All of us have an obligation to do everything we can to defeat Barack Obama”

I thanked Newt the other day. Newt thanks his supporters today, and has released a video in which he reiterates the need to defeat Barack Obama. There aren’t going to be sour grapes or pouting.  He’s bigger than that, even if his enemies aren’t.

Now the Obama marketing team is enticing donors with the opportunity to name put your name on a stock car: Congressman G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina writes: Regardless of whether you have had an opportunity to see a race on TV or experience the roar of a stock car engine in person, the 2012…

Elizabeth Warren’s drop of Cherokee blood

Posted by
5/1/2012 at 8:26am
Yesterday I posted about how Elizabeth Warren’s campaign acknowledged that she self-identified as Native American on forms she filled out for the Association of American Law Schools in the mid-1980s through 1994, but that she still was searching for the genealogical evidence to support her claim. According to the Boston Herald (added- Cover…

The conservative undergraduate bi-weekly newspaper on campus, The Cornell Review, has a new website where you can read the newspaper in a pretty cool viewer.  Kathleen is the Executive Editor.  Pretty soon they will integrate the Cornell Insider, the blog affiliate, into the website. The Cornell Review also has a new faculty adv…

Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren has been all over the newspapers the past several days after a revelation that Harvard Law School identified her as a Native American faculty member in the mid-1990s.  The claim to Native American status came as a shock to the media and the Scott Brown campaign. Warren…

Obama campaign unveils “Forward” slogan

Posted by
4/30/2012 at 1:29pm
Today the Obama campaign unveiled “Forward,” a seven-minute video highlighting his campaign strategy for the election: Similar to the 2008 concept, “Change,” this one-word slogan captures a vague sense of movement without articulating a strategy, end, or principle. The movement this terms evokes is no more than a different state than we’re currently…

It should be obvious to anyone who has attended almost any liberal arts college in the past 40 years that there is no War on Women on campuses.  Just the opposite is true; by almost all measures women have achieved numerical and political superiority on campus, yet the grievance studies and victim narrative…

Benzion Netanyahu, the father of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, died yesterday: Born Benzion Mileikowsky in Warsaw, Poland, in 1910 and moving to Mandatory Palestine in 1920, Netanyahu was a devout follower of revisionist Zionist leader Zeev Jabotinsky, who advocated Jewish military strength and the establishment of a Jewish state on both…
