Next Up in the Foreign Policy Debate: Torture

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

How will the Administration interpret the United Nations Convention Against Torture?

A memo recently circulated amongst lawyers working for the Obama Administration and in the intelligence community has sparked debate about the future of the United Nations Convention Against Torture as it applies to enhanced interrogation techniques used by Americans overseas. The Administration has a month to decide its stance on the…

Convicted tax cheat Stanley Cohen re-pledges allegiance to Hamas

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

The Zionists must have made him hide all that cash and fail to file income tax returns.

Lawyer Stanley Cohen pleaded guilty last spring to federal charges related to his scheme to conceal income through cash transactions elaborately orchestrated to cover his tracks. He also failed to file income tax returns. See our prior posts: Hamas’ attorney, Stanley Cohen, pleads guilty to tax offenses Would Stanley Cohen really rather spend…

Report: Obama Administration Looks to Sweeten Nuclear Deal for Iran. Again.

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

U.S. Looking to Allow Iran more Centrifuges

Remember when President Barack Obama said that the United States will “always have Israel’s back” when it comes to Israel’s security—especially in regards to Iran’s nuclear program? Or when Secretary of State John Kerry said that with Iran “no deal was better than a bad deal?” They were lying. The administration’s aim is to…

Rick Perry All In on Foreign Policy

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Rebuilding his national public persona after 2012.

Texas Democrats weren’t happy when Governor Rick Perry headed overseas in spite of the first diagnosed cases of Ebola in the U.S. appearing in Texas. While this might have served as a valuable distraction from Wendy Davis’s falling poll numbers, Perry’s decision to maintain his international schedule is shaping up to put…

Cornell Deer Sterilization Fiasco: “you can’t make this stuff up”

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

My interview on Cam & Co. on NRA News.

This goes to show you that you never can predict which posts will gain traction. My post Cornell gives deer tubal ligations, everything goes wrong, was meant to be a somewhat humorous take on a bizarre sequence of events. Tubal ligations and ovariectamies performed on does were just the half of it. The…

Wendy Davis Accuses Greg Abbott of Supporting Interracial Marriage Ban

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Texas elections, or the Wild West?

We’re less than 6 hours into the first day of early voting in Texas, and we’ve already documented evidence of first (electoral) blood between gubernatorial candidates Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis. Behold: Here’s what’s at stake in this election. Vote today. #MyTexasVotes pic.twitter.com/PQ1bT0sijC— Wendy Davis (@WendyDavisTexas) October 20, 2014 Greg Abbott won’t say whether…

Ebola Holiday Inn

Did Holiday Inn predict Ebola ineptitude… in 2001?

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Who knew this hotel chain was prophetic?

God bless the internet and all its wonderful treasures. This 2001 commercial from Holiday Inn Express was frighteningly prophetic. Hilarious, but prophetic. The ad shows a completely inept science team dealing with an Ebola sample, but you can feel safe because they stayed at Holiday Inn Express and are therefore, smart. Check…

Report: Obama to Bypass Congress on Iran Deal

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Things between Congress, Obama, and Iran are about to get very tense.

At the beginning of this year, Professor Jacobson wrote an article claiming that “the most dangerous years of the Obama presidency are upon us.” If the latest reports about the President’s next solo move in the area of foreign policy are trustworthy, then no truer article was ever written about…

Politico Poll Out of Control October 2014 Morning Joe Graphic

Election 2014: America “completely out of control” and “women feel unsafe”

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Fear of the Obama administration’s incompetence is the defining issue of our time.

I’m combining two video reports. First, Politico’s report that 64% feel things are spinning out of control: More results on specific topics here. This is how Morning Joe reacted (h/t Right Scoop): Also, we reported yesterday on Obama creating a woman problem for Senate Democrats. This may be why. Tina Brown notes that Obama makes…

Obama Faithful Walk Out on President’s Speech

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Maryland Dems scramble in effort to spin walkout.

We’ve reported several times on Democratic candidates’ unwillingness to be associated with Obama’s failed Administration, but things just got a little bit more embarrassing for the President and his supporters. At yesterday’s GOTV rally for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown, Democrat supporters who had waited hours for the chance to see…

Nikko Jenkins Ad NRCC

Is this ad race-baiting?

Posted by  ▪  October 19, 2014

Or just hard-hitting.

Salon.com said This may be the worst race-baiting campaign ad since Willie Horton. Greg Sargent at WaPo announced Willie Horton is back!. The freaking out was over an NRCC-sponsored ad linking Rep. Lee Terry’s (R-Neb.) Democratic opponent to convicted murderer Nikko Jenkins, who also happens to be African American. The ad attacks state…

Democrats have a woman problem due to this guy

Posted by  ▪  October 19, 2014

Falling in and out of love.

Who saw this coming? Obama’s standing with women hurts Senate Dems: Female voters powered President Barack Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney in 2012, as Democrats leaned heavily on social issues to rally single women and suburban moms to the polls. But with two weeks until Election Day, the president’s diminished standing with women is…

Watch that chip shot.

We all know that President Obama golfs even as the world burns, but a San Diego golfer’s swing may have been the cause of one of the many wildfires that plagued California back in May. The Poinsettia fire began at a golf course and eventually incinerated 600 acres and destroyed or damaged…

Ben & Jerry’s: Critics of our ice cream name are dazed and confused

Posted by  ▪  October 19, 2014

Refuses to change name of ice cream to appease PC Police.

Vermont ice cream maker Ben and Jerry’s drew the ire of the political correctness brigade when they released “Hazed and Confused,” a concoction of chocolate and hazelnut deliciousness. Part of their new Core series, “Hazed and Confused” is injected with a chocolate, hazelnut, fudge core. “Hazed and Confused” being a play off the…
