The French have their own presidential election on Sunday. Aside from their list of candidates, which would make many Americans feel relieved in comparison, the French have topped the US in media-related constraints. Until the last polling station closes at 8 p.m., French law forbids the release of polls and preliminary…

Hands that fed Obama campaign finally tired of being bitten

Posted by
4/21/2012 at 8:30am
One of the many enduring myths and legends of the Obama 2008 victory is that Obama’s record-breaking fundraising came from small donors.  Perpetuating the false impression that small donors are Obama’s base is a priority of the Obama campaign, which now focuses on running low cost ($5, $3) dinner raffles to run up the number of…

From reader J: I work on the north side of Milwaukee, WI. I was behind this car on my way home from work last night. I think it says it all… The uber liberals never cease to amaze me with their transparency. I’ll keep my eyes open for more gems. It’s an incredible (and…

or a way to motivate the opposition to Walker? You be the judge.  The argument is that anti-Walker forces, particularly the younger newer voters, just aren’t motivated. From Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN, Huge Obstacles to Beating Scott Walker in Wisconsin Recall: The life-and-death struggle in Wisconsin to turn back the radical and sweeping…

Last night, Ron Paul delivered a speech to over 4,000 people at Cornell’s Lynah Rink. Naturally, I was part of the audience – it’s not every day that a presidential candidate comes to Cornell and it’s even rarer that I don’t have any homework in the evening. I have seen Ron Paul…

Zimmerman bail hearing

Here is George Zimmerman’s testimony at the bail hearing this morning. I find it very curious as to why he took the stand at all, other than for publicity and to start reshaping his image for potential jurors.  While the cross-examination was limited, you can see the dangers of putting a defendant…

Posted by

This blog has often highlighted the pervasive anti-Israel sentiments present in the higher education system of this country. Last month, Cornell Professor of Physics, Yuval Grossman, wrote a guest post here regarding a pro-Palestinian Cornell student group attempting to orchestrate a boycott against a Technion-Cornell collaborative project. Technion is the oldest and…

Coverage emerged yesterday of a recent conference held by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) in Washington, DC. Among the breakout sessions, one entitled “The Church: Becoming Spiritually Fed and Feeding the Hungry” appears to have been especially ineptly titled given the actual content conveyed: The panel had little to do with…

I suspected this day would come, when all of those who jumped to politically driven conclusions about injuries or not to George Zimmerman would have to confront actual evidence. So now the Martin family attorney who went on television to proclaim Zimmerman a liar about suffering head injuries will go back on…

Dick Lugar at risk of losing Senate seat and reputation

Posted by
4/20/2012 at 8:05am
Dick Lugar has the reputation, deserved or not, of being the gentleman of the Senate, a now-grandfatherly figure who is well-liked personally if not politically. Lugar now is in the political fight of his life against Richard Mourdock.  Lugar is fighting back, as I pointed out previously, with blatantly false accusations calling Mourdock a…

CNN columnist LZ Granderson demanded an arrest: Ted Nugent should be arrested. Not because he doesn’t like Barack Obama but because he got up in front of a group of people and insinuated he would attempt to assassinate Obama if he’s re-elected. Or let’s put it this way: A man with a truckload…
