Saturday Night Card Game (It’s only going to get worse)

Posted by  ▪  August 20, 2011
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain: A couple of weeks before the 2008 election, in one of my first blog posts, I wrote: The suppression of legitimate political expression through false accusations of racism by the Obama campaign and its supporters is the…

Alumni Resignations at Widener Law School In Wake of Connell Case

Posted by  ▪  August 20, 2011
The fallout from the handling of the case of Prof. Lawrence Connell is starting to be felt at Widener Law School. Widener has confirmed that two members of Widener Law School’s Board of Overseers and fundraising subcommittee have resigned.  In an e-mail to me, Widener’s Director of Public Relations wrote: That is not…

While you weren’t looking, Obama passed immigration amnesty

Posted by  ▪  August 20, 2011
He didn’t pass it through Congress, even though he had overwhelming majorities for almost two years, because there were not enough votes.  He also didn’t do it by regulation, because that would take time and be subject to public comment and other messy procedures. Instead, Obama simply has issued an internal policy…

I think you’re being a little harsh

Posted by  ▪  August 20, 2011
I defy you to point to a single sentence written by Marx or Lenin complaining about corporate jet owners, or a single sentence uttered by Obama demanding that the kulaks pay their “fair share” of the harvest. Thanks to reader Rich who writes: I saw this pair of messages on a car parked next…

Palin in Iowa Video – No one does it better

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
Regardless of whether you support her or not, for President or not, no one does inspirational political (campaign?) videos better than Palin. Palin’s Mama Grizzlies and Together videos were historic. This is another home run (h/t TheOtherMcCain):
 

Most Obvious Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
From Taegan Goddard:  
 

“over 66 percent expect that the size of their workforce will either stay the same or decrease over the next year”

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
Those are the findings of a survey of CEO’s by ChiefExecutive.net (h/t @billhobbs): Unemployment numbers remain consistently high and CEOs are wary of future business conditions. In fact, chief executives are so pessimistic that over 66 percent expect that the size of their workforce will either stay the same or decrease over…

The new anti-Semitism

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
As explained in The Secret Passion of the New Antisemitism (h/t @yaacovlozowick): What distinguishes antisemitic propaganda from legitimate criticism, then, is the stubborn insistence on holding Israel to standards from which other countries are exempt, and the demand that Jews be denied a right to which other peoples are entitled, even obligated, to…

More on the Widener Law School controversy

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
As you know, I have been following the case of Widener Law School Professor Lawrence Connell for several months. Connell claimed that he was singled out by two students for false accusations of racism and sexism, and that the Widener administration backed the students without bothering with a thorough investigation, because Connell was one…

Russ Feingold just says no to WI Dems hopes

Posted by  ▪  August 19, 2011
The great hope for Wisconsin Democrats has been that former Senator Russ Feingold would run in a recall election next year against Republican Gov. Scott Walker.  Since Democrats are likely to get enough signatures to force a recall, Democrats also will need a strong candidate to run against Walker, and Feingold…

Rick Perry Vetting and Palinizing

Posted by  ▪  August 18, 2011
It’s coming too fast and furious, and in some cases is too bizarre, to summarize here.  And some of the charges are not worth repeating. While I’m sure his supporters are frustrated, they shouldn’t be. Better to get it all out there and deal with it now.  He’ll either survive it (which I think…

Sometime today the 1,000th User registered here. Exactly two months after registration opened with the move away from Blogger, and about six weeks after The 500. I haven’t forgotten about Phase 2, it’s just that things have been a bit busy. Thanks for signing on.  I’ll stop now, before I get all reflective, and stuff. [Th…

If this is “halfway there,” can you imagine what “there” will be?

Posted by  ▪  August 18, 2011
It’s hopeless with the current man at top. Flickers of job hope quickly fade because there is a cloud hanging over the country’s economy and job growth: The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits last week rose back above the 400,000 level in the latest week, adding to worries about…

There were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Israel overnight (our time, noon Israeli time).  At least six people were killed, and the attacks apparently emanated, at least in part, from Egyptian territory. Israel Matzav is gathering the latest information. Updates: The Israel Defense Forces reports that the attacks started from Gaza, although…

Obama Demands Israel Apologize To Islamist Erdogan For Stopping Terror Flotilla…Or Else!

Posted by  ▪  August 18, 2011
Israel Today reports that the Obama Administration has demanded that Israel apologize to Turkey for last Summer’s raid on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish-flagged ship leading a “Freedom Flotilla” of “peace activists,” which attempted to break the blockade on the Terrortory of Hamastan (a.k.a. Gaza). This motley crew of Hamasophiles  included not…
