Things are never simple with Elizabeth Warren. Warren made headlines the other day when she claimed her brother lived on his social security of only $13,200 in order to score a political point.  Considering Warren’s fabulous wealth, the obvious question was why she wasn’t helping him. Warren insists that she told the truth about her…

Terry McAuliffe, perennial Democratic partisan and Clintonite, wants to be Governor of Virginia. But he has a problem. A big problem, Terry McAuliffe’s Solyndra.  Go read the article at the link.  All you need to know is in this Dukakis-in-a-tank-like photo: While the issue had received attention, it was mostly among those already tuning in.

Lame #Gosnell media blackout pushback

Posted by
4/12/2013 at 3:32pm
There is some very lame pushback against the overwhelming evidence that the mainstream media has a virtual news blackout on the Gosnell trial. It started with a post in Slate Salon.com about how “feminist” bloggers have written about Gosnell, and the NY Times reported on the case at the time of the…

The mainstream media is ignoring Kermit Gosnell’s abortion shop of horrors. In addition to the near total blackout at newspapers like The NY Times and Washington Post and all major networks except Fox News, mainstream news sites like Politico are silent, with not a single story as of this writing. Compare that…

1) How to fight asymmetric warfare Once again Charles Enderlein and Philipe Karsenty are back in court. Enderlein was the reporter who created the story of Mohammed al-Dura. Karsenty is the media critic who had the temerity to question the much honored “journalist.” Back in 2008 Karsenty successfully fended off a libel…

The butchery of infants born alive after abortions at the Philadelphia clinic run by Kermit Gosnell is gruesome beyond description, as described in my prior post, A Culture of Death is their choice. The details are not new.  The horrific Grand Jury Report (h/t Dave Weigel) was issued over two years ago. Yet this mass murder,…

Elizabeth Warren pays interns $0 per hour

Posted by
4/11/2013 at 5:00pm
Elizabeth Warren has gained notoriety recently for complaining that the minimum wage would be $22 per hour if it kept up with worker productivity gains over the past several decades. Warren’s analysis was fundamentally flawed because it did not measure increased productivity of minimum wage unskilled workers or justify paying $45,000 per year…

Patton, a  Princeton University alumna who was among the 200 ‘pioneer’ women enrolled in the Ivy League school in 1973, penned a fascinating letter to the editor of the Daily Princetonian addressed to the “daughters I never had.” Here’s what nobody is telling you: Find a husband on campus before…

I subscribe to the view that barring something truly unforeseeable, the Democratic nomination in 2016 is Hillary’s for the taking.  There is no second Barack Obama out there to take the nomination away from her. In fact, the non-Hillary Democratic bench is pathetically weak. Hillary’s many controversies are mostly ancient history, and…

First came the smear that the perfectly descriptive and race neutral terms “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” were racist, as part of an open-borders effort to redefine the meaning of our immigration laws and those who break them as merely a paperwork problem. Then came the capitulation by the Associated Press. Now comes…
