When Elizabeth Warren has lost Ed Schultz

Via The Free Beacon, an Elizabeth Warren surrogate appeared on the Ed Show. What’s interesting is not just that the surrogate still insists that Warren has Native American heritage, but that Ed pushed her on it and basically says to fess up: SCHULTZ: Wait a minute. Did she ever put down on…

Signs are popping up all over. From reader Angie: This is not a bumper sticker, but traveling along the coast in southern OREGON, we came upon this rather large sign. The small town seemed to be struggling. Maybe there’s hope. Follow up email from Angie: Drove by it again today, and the opposition has painted over…

Eric Holder has been selected as Harvard Law School’s Class Day Speaker.  I don’t remember if there was a Class Day when I was there, but I would not have attended anyway for reasons already known to readers. Holder will be greeted with posters protesting Holder’s stalling of the congressional investigation into…

Spotted: the director of the upcoming documentary “Hating Breitbart” clowning the Occupy protesters by joining their crowd Monday afternoon: Better yet, Rebel Pundit got out and led the crowd in chants, holding a “Breitbart Is Here” sign: Seems just like the time Andrew Breitbart led Code Pink anti-capitalism protesters through the streets on his…

Move to change propaganda laws opens up Cold War argument

Posted by
5/21/2012 at 6:13pm
An old Cold War argument has been resurrected with the news that an amendment allowing U.S. propaganda to be broadcast within our borders has been passed out of the house along with the Defense Authorization Act. Should the State Department be authorized to allow its propaganda to be broadcast to us in…

That seems to be the attitude of Massachusetts Democrats, as reported by The Boston Herald: Bay State Democrats are standing by their woman, saying they’re confident in embattled Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — now three weeks into a persistent scandal over her claims of Native American heritage — though critics say she’ll…

Ted Cruz for Senate

I have not had as much of a chance to focus on the Texas Senate primary as I would have liked.  My inclination was to back Ted Cruz early on, but I just didn’t have the time to do the research.  But I have been following the race, listening to Cruz’s interviews,…

Someone’s in trouble: Newark N.J. Mayor Cory Booker (D) expressed reserve about the Obama campaign’s Bain strategy against Mitt Romney, telling “Meet The Press” viewers on Sunday that he was “uncomfortable” with the line of attacks. “This kind of stuff is nauseating to me on both sides,” Booker said. “It’s nauseating to…

I have few original thoughts on the fake twins who cannot bear the unbearable burden of bearing fairly boring genealogy and upbringing in middle and upper middle class Amerika. I feel your feign, man and woman. So here is your faking fakers and the fakery they fake Reader (you can attribute any of these brilliant lines to moi): Mark…

This one hurts.  I grew up knowing so many of the Bee Gees early songs by heart. The New York Mining Disaster 1941 was one of my favorites, and one of the most underappreciated: Robin Gibb passed away today. He will be missed. From Rolling Stone: Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, died Sunday…

Anne Sorock is on the ground at the NATO protests, and sends these photos, which I’ll keep adding as she sends them in. Let’s start with the most important component of any protest, the National Lawyers Guild Observer team: Chicago is taking no chances with the protesters using the Car-o-Potty, and has lined…

The website for the Chicago Police Department is down today, the apparent victim of hackers who may have timed the hit in conjunction with the first day of the NATO Summit. I’m heading for the protests, and hopefully will have photos and a report later. Updates by WAJ — appears website back up…

David Cicilline, the former Mayor of Providence and current Democratic congressman from my home district RI-01, is in deep electoral trouble because he lied about Providence’s abysmal finances during the 2010 congressional race.  He has apologized for lying. With Providence on the verge of bankruptcy, Cicilline is way behind in the polls…

Obama on verge of his grand Iranian bargain

Posted by

It looks like Obama is going to get the “grand bargain” which has been the point of U.S. policy towards Iran since the Obama administration stood silently as Iranians took to the streets in June 2009. The grand bargain theory assures the Iranian theocracy’s continued control over not just Iran but an extended terrorist…

Saturday evening the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a sweeping endorsement of Governor Walker in the upcoming Wisconsin recall election. The news was a stunning endorsement for Walker, who faces democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in June, given that the newspaper has been known to have a liberal bent. In their endorsement, the MJ…
