Campaign 2.0: “Jeb Can Fix It” Flops Hard

Posted by
11/3/2015 at 3:10pm
I officially feel sorry for Jeb Bush. In the wake of the CNBC debate, I said without hesitation (for about the 55th time) that he simply doesn’t want to be president. I’ve seen nothing out of him that convinces me he really wants this. (This is one of those “feature/bug” scenarios. I…

Posted by

TransCanada, the Calgary-based company behind the push to construct the Keystone XL pipeline, has asked Secretary of State John Kerry to pause the State Department’s review of the project until state-level negotiations on the actual construction of the pipeline are resolved. TransCanada is currently in the middle of both a legal…

China has been a global hub for manufacturing counterfeit electronics and consumer goods, but as the Asian giant asserts its dominance in the Asian Pacific and beyond, its defense establishment is using the same approach to modernise its vast armed forces.  Despite its large standing and reserve army, Chinese Armed Forces technologically…

Feds: Illinois school must allow transgender male unrestricted use of girls’ shower and locker room

Your daughters have to look at male genitalia in the locker room and shower, whether you or they like it or not.

This is the next battlefield, which already has arrived. As far as the feds are concerned, it is unlawful discrimination if a school provides anything less than full, unrestricted access for male transgender students to areas previously deemed private girls-only areas, such as showers and locker rooms. The NY Times reports, Illinois District…

The CNBC debate has sparked a number of conversations on the very real issue of liberal bias in the media. As Professor Jacobson pointed out last night, this is an opportunity for Republicans. When the issue is being discussed seriously on MSNBC, you know we’ve reached a turning point. Yesterday on Morning…

Jesse Watters of the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News visited Cornell late last month to interview students about a Cornell Daily Sun report that over 96% of faculty donations went to Democrats. And then a funny thing happened. Cornell Media Relations shut Watters down. Which created — as I predicted — a…

“I don’t think his grip over the country has ever been as strong”

You Should Be Worried about Erdogan’s Turkey

Posted by
11/2/2015 at 7:44pm
Back in June, the anti-Democratic Erdogan regime fielded a major blow when Turkish voters, led by the Kurds, denied the Justice and Development Party (or A.K.P.) a parliamentary majority. It was a victory for not only the Kurds, but for liberal and/or secular Turks who had spent years protesting the power…

CNBC Debate debacle gives GOP opportunity to reset media relationship

GOP should not chicken out from fighting media over debates

Posted by

On Saturday night, I wrote that the GOP needs to make an example of NBC News after the CNBC moderating debacle. The point was not that NBC News is the worst offender, it’s that it was the wrong place at the wrong time for NBC News, and the right place at…

11/2/2015 at 5:44pm
October’s CNBC-hosted Republican debate threw into full relief the bias inherent in the mainstream media’s handling of electoral politics. In the wake of the broadcast, both the MSM and RNC leadership fielded comments and accusations from candidates (and conservative bloggers…) rendered beyond frustrated at the CNBC moderators’ questions, tone, and…

Monday afternoon, President Obama signed a two-year budget deal saying it was, “a signal of how Washington should work.” Avoiding an election-year budget showdown, the bill suspends the debt limit until March of 2017 and brings the national debt total to a staggering $20 trillion. According to USA Today: Some House…

Last we reported, eight non-profit co-ops created by the Affordable Care Act announced they were closing. Two weeks later, that number is now eleven. State and federal regulators have suspended Arizona’s Meritus Health Partners and Meritus Health Mutual Partners. Like the ten non-profit tax-payer funded co-op closures before, regulators cited financial troubles…

Kate Steinle’s murder by an illegal immigrant with a violent criminal past and several deportations under his belt resulted in public outcry against sanctuary cities.  While the left-leaning media worked overtime trying to show there is no link between violent crime and illegal immigration (one even going so far as to…

NY Times’ mindless editorial over Stand-Your-Ground law

Posted by

I imagine we’ve all chuckled at the mindlessness which the New York Times provides opportunities to observe the Murray Gell-Mann amnesia effect in action. From my own perspective as an expert in use-of-force law I fail to recall a single instance in which the NYT has so much as approached factual accuracy or displayed contextual understanding in a piece on…

Ever since it became clear that Paul Ryan would be the next Speaker of the House, there have been mixed feelings on the right about his ascension. Some worried that he isn’t conservative enough; others worried that he’d be too much like Boehner. Now that he’s in the role and talking about…

Sometimes the most interesting and moving stories are the ones I stumble upon. Like the Bus No. 37 bombing memorial in Haifa, Israel, that I wrote up last May. A similar thing happened to me last Friday, when I was in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I wanted to see the Park Slope Co-op, the…
