Ted Cruz for Senate

Posted by

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
5/20/2012 at 9:45am
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…

Walker rising, Barrett falling, Unions crying

Posted by

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…

You know the general election has started when …. Barack Obama plays the Hussein card… and the mere mention of Jeremiah Wright sets off a dog whistle which only The NY Times, left-blogosphere and Republican nominee can hear: You see, when it comes to Barack … Obama, there is nothing new under the Sun: The…

Maryland’s April employment figures are cause for concern

Posted by
5/19/2012 at 2:30pm
Maryland’s loss of 6,000 jobs was the largest of any state in the nation last month. Some have been quick to write off the figures as a product of unusual weather patterns affecting seasonal hiring practices, but there is a growing belief that the Maryland economy is not as solid as…

Syria’s chickens coming home to roost

Posted by
5/19/2012 at 12:27pm
But it’s no time for joy.  The dithering on Syria has given the same elements who transitted Syria to kill U.S. troops in Iraq a chance to build up their operations in Syria and return the violence on the Syrian government. Suicide blast in Syria hits military compound; 9 dead (emphasis mine): A car…

We need to be more careful about Elizabeth Warren than she is about being Cherokee

Posted by
5/19/2012 at 10:02am
There is zero evidence that Elizabeth Warren is Cherokee, despite her having touted such heritage at various times, and she stands by that claim in the face of contrary evidence. Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com, and to some extent your humble correspondent, have laid Warren’s claims bare. Last night National Review Online r…
