David Hogberg of IBD was in the courtroom today, and his account shows a judge with a misunderstanding of how the internet — particularly Google Alerts — works, and a defendant (Walker) who never should have represented himself. Here is an excerpt, read the whole thing: This was the second peace order that…

The NY Times has a lengthy article about how Obama personally is directing and approving targeted drone strikes with great frequency.  The article appears to be rich in cooperation from the administration, suggesting it is part of Obama’s image making and part of the “He got bin Laden” campaign strategy. But the…

End of day status:  According to the most recent update to McCain’s post, Walker was released and was charged with “incitement.”  I’ll have to find out more specifically what the charge is, but if there has been any criminal charge, it’s pretty outrageous. I cant say more until I talk to my…

Slap on wrist for prosecutors who changed history by wrongfully convicting Ted Stevens

Posted by

I’ve written before about the wrongful conviction of the late Alaska Senator Ted Stevens just before the 2008 election, and how it changed history: So many things had to go wrong for Obamacare to evade a Senate filibuster.  Arlen Specter had to switch parties.  Al Franken had to pull out a slight victory. …

Saturday, June 2, is the Massachusetts Democratic Convention.  Elizabeth Warren and Marisa DeFranco each need to obtain 15% of the vote at the convention to be on the September 6 primary ballot. There is a move afoot to keep DeFranco off the ballot to clear the path for Warren, but will Democrats…

This is a little scary, particularly if it were put in the wrong hands. Via The Times of Israel: A new, unprecedented computer virus called “Flame” (or “sKyWIper”) has hit Iran, the West Bank, and other Middle Eastern locations.

As Politico notes, The Boston Herald has outdone The Boston Globe in reporting on Elizabeth Warren, although The Globe finally is coming around to some hard reporting after its editorial board declared the issue over weeks ago: Long before Republican Sen. Scott Brown vs. Elizabeth Warren arrived on the scene, Beantown’s flagship…

Time for Jennifer Rubin to retract her Richard Grenell “EXCLUSIVE”

Posted by

What an ironic statement from Jennifer Rubin (emphasis mine): It is awfully tempting for pundits to use people and personal conflicts as stick figures in a polemic play reaffirming one’s preexisting impressions and biases. That’s certainly been the case in the Richard Grenell case…. The best, fairest and most thoughtful words have been written…
