I think this is one of those goose/gander things. Via Roll Call: With less than four and a half months until Election Day, Senate Republicans are shutting off the bipartisan spigot when it comes to confirming President Barack Obama’s nominees to the nation’s top courts and will present a unified front against his…

What’s up with Maine Senate contest?

Posted by

I’m still having a lot of trouble figuring out the Maine Senate race, and whether there’s anything we can do to salvage the seat in a three-way race with the former Governor running as an independent apparently in the lead. Via Pine Tree Politics: The message from the Republican Party and Democratic Party…

From a reader: Took this photo on my way to work this morning — in Saratoga, California, a suburb of Silicon Valley, no less! It probably doesn’t mean California is in play, but I think it’s an indicator of Obama’s diminishing popularity here. I thought LI readers might like it, though I…

Not the destruction in September 2007 of the nuke facility likely being built with the help of the Norks. Via Jerusalem Post, a story I had not heard before, Syria’s chemical weapons program has been focus of Israeli intelligence operations since the mid-1970s. It was July 2007 and in Aleppo, Syria, the muezzins…

Who asked a question. And the MSM is going wild on Twitter. Here’s the offense: The “offender” was Neil Munro from The Daily Caller.

Criminal charges dropped against Aaron Walker, but gag order remains

Posted by
6/15/2012 at 1:50pm
Last night Patterico reminded us Aaron Walker Still Silent: Outlaw judge Cornelius Vaughey’s ruling remains in effect. Aaron cannot truthfully blog about public figure Brett Kimberlin without violating a judge’s blatantly unconstitutional prior restraint of his speech. Just thought I’d mention that. Since it’s still true. While Walker remains under a gag order, at…

Elizabeth Warren’s Google problem

Posted by
6/15/2012 at 12:44pm
Rick Santorum had a Google problem. And so does Elizabeth Warren, although of a different nature. Elizabeth Warren wants her message to be about evil factory owners who live off of others, and the middle class which is being”hammered” (her new favorite word). Whatever her messaging intends to be, Warren’s Cherokee problem dominates the…

So much for the rule of law.  This guy wants reelection, so to hell with the Congress. Via Associated Press: The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a…

Scott Brown hasn’t said much himself about Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee fraud. But now he’s going there, and good for him. With each passing day that Warren clings to her claim to be Native American, Cherokee, a minority and a “woman of color,” she reveals a deep and disturbing character flaw. Warren thinks she can…

Rhode Island is being crushed by pension debt, our cities are suffocating, we’re driving businesses away with regulatory minutiae, and we’re hemorrhaging young people.  Oh, and we just threw away up to $75 million on a video game company run by a former baseball player. So what are our Governor and legislature spending…

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) earned a special place in the annals of odious Senatorial speeches when, on the eve of the Obamacare vote in the Senate in December 2009, he invoked Kristallnacht and lynchings when speaking of opponents of Obamacare: History cautions us of the excesses to which these malignant, vindictive passions can ultimately lead. Tumbrels…

There are times it’s good just to be a spectator. I’m not going to try to sort this out, I’ll just note that the “Stop Rush” movement has turned on one of its most prized Twitter activists, or that activist has turned on it, depending who you believe. I don’t care to believe…

No one could have seen this coming.  This could be the moment when Obama’s campaign stopped receding. Sandra Fluke endorses Obama in an op-ed at CNN.com (because MSNBC.com was not available): Obama is committed to rebuilding our economy upon the values of fairness and opportunity and the belief that all Americans, both men…

Posted by

Elizabeth Warren is standing by her claim of Cherokee heritage even though there is no evidence to back up that claim, and plenty of evidence that it is not true. On Morning Joe this morning she refused to back down even an inch.  She also mocked the Boston Herald, which has discovered many…
