Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Association with Obama proving toxic at the polls.

In a recent debate, Colorado Democrat Mark Udall was asked which of Obama’s policies he would oppose if elected. He couldn’t name one. Here’s a video by the Washington Free Beacon: Udall’s campaign has focused on the tired Democratic Party meme of the war on women, earning him the nickname “Mark Uterus.” Nia-Malika Henderson of…

This is what happens when you treat Ebola like a JV virus

Posted by  ▪  October 16, 2014

Yikes – Alison Grimes College Dem volunteers cover up Obama shirts to hide connection

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

“They all brought their Obama shirts to campaign in, only to learn that they should not be connecting Alison Grimes to Obama”

Aleister posted this story over at College Insurrection, but it’s worth a cross post here. The George Washington University student newspaper ran a report on College Democrats volunteering for Alison Grimes in Kentucky. In light of Grimes’ repeated refusals to say if she voted for Obama, and attempts to distance herself, it’s not…

Facebook and Apple: Come for the high pay, get your eggs frozen too

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

Seems to me that what’s happening here is the very opposite of “feminism.”

Tech giants Facebook and Apple have come up with a plan to keep their female employees happy and on the job—subsidized egg freezing. Both companies have a reputation for offering posh work environments and cadillac health care plans, but the new program seeks to invest up to $20,000 in benefits to…

Will NY Times Tour of Iran have “don’t ask, don’t tell policy”?

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2014

Desperate times for The Times.

Few publications were more enthusiastic about last year’s election of “moderate” Hassan Rouhani as president of Iran than The New York Times. Perhaps some of that enthusiasm stemmed from the possibility of engaging in commercial enterprises with the regime in Tehran. Ira Stoll editor of SmarterTimes noted the other day that The…

The full decision will be embedded soon….
