Gawker Media website Deadspin helped Cory Gardner win the Colorado Senate race, and contributed to Republicans taking the Senate, by botching a gotcha story about Garnder supposedly faking his high school football record. Deadspin was dead wrong, and we said Thanks Deadspin! Now Gawker Media website Jezebel has done the equivalent for…

Texas isn’t called “The Friendship State” for nothing. In the Lone Star State, even a lost dime bag is treated with the utmost care and neighborly compassion. Eager to get to the bottom of the case of the lost weed, Copperas Cove Police Department posted the following on their official Facebook page…

When it comes to domestic problems, a common joke among my independently minded friends is, “It’s all Bush’s fault.” However, when it comes to problems of a more international scope, the preferred target is the United States. So, when tasked with figuring out what went wrong, the Presidential Commission for the…

Which means Congress gets to have this same fight all over again next week. Joy. The Senate passed a clean funding bill late yesterday afternoon, placing efforts to combat President Obama’s executive overreach in a separate piece of legislation. Last night it looked as though a DHS shutdown was imminent. Democratic lawmakers in…

Obama knows he’s vulnerable on Iran, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s impending visit to the U.S. and Congressional address isn’t doing him any favors when it comes to gaining a vote of confidence from lawmakers and other world leaders. The White House expects Netanyahu to hit back against its efforts…

This week, the FCC voted 3-2 in favor of implementing net neutrality policies. These rules will prevent internet service providers like Verizon or Comcast from blocking or throttling traffic, ban giving priority to providers who are willing to pay for faster service, and reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service. This means…

Democrats obstruct DHS stopgap funding bill — shutdown imminent

What a mess this has become. Hell bent on pursuing legislation that would allow for the dissolution of Congressional powers (a.k.a. Obama’s Executive immigration overreach), House Democrats refused to pass a short term funding bill for DHS. The bill would’ve funded DHS through March 19 and prevented an agency shut down. Unless…

Every year, conservatives waste time and energy debating the point of attending CPAC. We have this obsession with debating why we’re all here. Debate? Solidarity? Passing judgment on the presidential prospects? No one really knows. And that’s okay. It’s okay because, for better or for worse, everyone comes to CPAC for…

Yesterday’s New York Times editorial on the emerging nuclear deal between the West and Iran is completely delusional. I will try to tackle the editorial’s arguments in the order of ridiculousness, from most to least: Critics of any deal — including those in Congress, such as Senator Mark Kirk, a Republican of Illinois,…

Is there anyone who is surprised that the FCC has voted in favor of net neutrality, and that the vote followed party lines? I doubt it. The general trend has been for greater and greater control by agencies in matters that may seem innocuous, technical, and/or unimportant at the time but…
