Greg Gutfeld: “Seriously, that even made me feel bad for Lerner”

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2014

Bob Beckel adds, “…that’s an insult to Andrew Breitbart’s history.”

Our reader poll turned up strong support for Jason Mattera confronting Lois Lerner in her neighborhood, including following her to a neighbor’s door. Based on the comments to that post, I think the general reasoning in favor was that Lerner deserves to have to answer questions, they do it to us (60…

Ferguson redux? Police officer shoots, kills black man

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2014

Protests, again.

[UPDATE: An image purporting to be a police report of this shooting event was linked in the comments. I have embedded that image below--thanks Ras.  I can not personally attest to its provenance, but it appears to be of a form I would expect of an actual police report for such...

Gallup Poll Suggests Low Voter Turnout, but Republican Advantage

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2014

At least if engagement is any indication.

A new Gallup Poll suggests that candidates and party officials should brace themselves for low voter turnout during the 2014 midterms. This new data shows that voters are less motivated, less excited, and less interested in this year’s election than they have been in the past. Because there is a positive…

The new normal? Beheading threats empty RI elementary schools

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2014

Probably a hoax, but enough to cause panic.

After the Oklahoma workplace beheading, I asked if the threat level had shifted From Going Postal to Going ISIS. Regardless of whether we see more actual beheadings in the U.S., it appears that threats of beheadings may be the latest iteration of threatening hoaxes based on news events. As ISIS beheadings are in…

Report: White House link to 2012 Secret Service Colombian prostitution scandal

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2014

White House and person allegedly involved deny cover-up.

Today’s “Worst Administration Ever” story is a throwback to the Great Secret Service Sex Scandal of 2012, in which almost two dozen Secret Service personnel were fired after allegations surfaced that several agents had engaged in misconduct involving Colombian prostitutes. Now, reports have surfaced refuting White House claims that no staff…

#CA52: Still flip opportunity as DeMaio leads in the polls

Posted by  ▪  October 8, 2014

For Republican Carl DeMaio, victory is in sight.

The openly gay “New Generation” Republican Carl DeMaio is now polling three points above incumbent Democrat Scott Peters in California’s evenly split 52nd district. A UT San Diego poll released Monday shows DeMaio polling at 48% and Peters at 45%. Since the difference falls within the poll’s margin of error, the race…

Google, Twitter Fight for Surveillance Transparency

Are government gag-orders on data disclosure constitutional?

The Patriot Act expanded the government’s ability to keep an eye on American citizens—and their data. Through special permissions granted by the FBI through “national security letters,” U.S. spy agencies are able to access user data owned by tech companies, while at the same time barring those companies from disclosing…

Watch Elizabeth Warren’s reaction when Bill Maher says she’ll make a terrific presidential candidate

Posted by  ▪  October 8, 2014

That Elizabeth Warren twinkle just won’t leave progressives’ eyes — or Warren’s.

Elizabeth Warren says she “is not running” for President. (You know where I’m going with this, don’t you?) Progressives will not take “is not running” for an answer. Ready for Warren is up and running, and now so are other progressive groups in Iowa and New Hampshire, as reported by The Hill, Liberal grass…

(Reader Poll at bottom of post) Jason Mattera of the Daily Surge recently filmed an unannounced confrontation with former IRS employee Lois Lerner in her own neighborhood. Lerner fled his camera and tried (unsuccessfully) to seek refuge in a neighbor’s home: VIDEO: Lois Lerner Tries Barging Into Neighbor’s Home To Evade Questions Lois Lerner attempted…

The criteria for diagnosing Ebola

Might they need revision?

Spain’s Ebola patient zero is a nurse’s assistant. No one can say she kept mum about the fact that she’d been near an Ebola patient recently. Authorities were well aware of her exposure, because she was on the team that cared for a Spanish missionary and a Spanish priest, both of whom…

Hey, Leon Panetta, why didn’t you speak out when it mattered?

Posted by  ▪  October 8, 2014

“I told you so” from the former Defense Secretary helps frame the election debate, but comes late in the game.

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s new book, Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, was released yesterday, and what it reveals has the media gaping—Democrats scrambling for a distraction. Panetta’s memoir focuses on several aspects of Obama’s foreign policy, but the section that’s causing the most chatter highlights the…

Goes both ways.

From Javier: Only in Maryland. Snapped just outside downtown Silver Spring, MD. One of these is not like the other… The yellow sticker is the “Don’t tread on my Obamacare” sticker we’ve seen before.
