  • All in: Democrats plan full-court press to defeat Walker

    HotAir ^ | October 24, 2014 | Guy Benson
    Scott Walker appeared to be pulling away from Mary Burke. He led by nearly six points in the respected Marquette Law poll, had cracked 50, and enjoyed a 13-point cushion with independent voters. Then came MU’s mid-October survey, in which Walker’s lead vanished completely, with the race deadlocked at 47. All three of those data points represented noticeable departures from most polling trends, but the top line number showed an exact tie — which mirrors the RCP average. The last three polls of the contest have produced a tie, a Burke lead of one point, and Walker edge of the...
  • Joel Osteen or Fortune Cookie? [Use of Scripture To Be A MegaMillionaire]

    Joel Osteen or Fortune Cookie? May 12, 2010 The other day I ate some rather extraordinary Thai food for lunch and, on my way out, grabbed a fortune cookie. I cracked it open and read a silly little proverb meant to inspire, I suppose. I wish it had said “Brisk uphill walk after all-you-can-eat Thai is a bad idea.” Never mind. As I waddled my way home, regretting that last bowl of curry (so delicious…), I thought “This fortune sounds like something Joel Osteen would say.” And then it struck me—there is very little difference between Joel and those fortune...

    This twitter post showed Zehat Bibeau with what appears to be a Winchester lever action rifle.    At first, it was unclear if this were the same firearm that he used to shoot Cpl. Cirillo.   The BBC quickly came up with an identification of the firearm used - a Winchester lever action shotgun!  From the BBC: He said police were trying to piece together how Zehaf-Bibeau acquired a Winchester lever-action shotgun, as he was banned from owning firearms due to his criminal convictions.  Then the Ottowa Sun took a shot at the subject.  From the Ottowa Sun: Police still don't...

    What are we to do with this latest school shooting tragedy?  Unlike the killings in Oklahoma City and Ottawa, Canada, this was no terrorist or self-proclaimed warrior carrying out a religious fatwa.  Jaylen Fryberg was a 14-year-old boy.  He could be my son, or anyone’s.  This is really a tragedy, every bit as much as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost two years ago.  Except that by all accounts, Jaylen Fryberg was no mentally ill recluse.  He was an outgoing, smart, athletic boy who was named freshman homecoming king at his school. There are no words to erase the...

    A billboard advertising a line of bulletproof vests for young boys has appeared near the Florida capital in Tallahassee. Chilling, controversial and undeniably eye-catching, the ad is part of the “Vest or Vote” campaign mounted by The Dream Defenders. The Florida-based social justice organization is rallying residents to vote in Florida’s midterm election Nov. 4. According to a report on Jacksonville’s CBS 47 Action News, the group hopes to elect candidates who will repeal the state's controversial stand-your-ground law. According to The BRPR Group, the Miami-based advertising agency behind the campaign, the billboard was modeled after youth clothing ads like...

    Amnesty Needed for "Shared Prosperity" Labor Secretary Thomas Perez reassured the National Press Club that amnesty for illegal immigrants will be forthcoming after the mid-term elections. "Right now, it would be too risky for the President to declare the kind of big and bold legalization of the millions of undocumented persons in this country that everyone agrees is desperately needed," Perez said. "The Republicans would use such an action to hammer Democrats running in Congressional races. Once the elections are past, though, there will be nothing anyone can do to impede this reform."

    The villains were the jerks who pushed Bristol Palin and the members of the media, like Carol Costello, who wear their liberal bias as a badge of honor Since she burst on the national scene in 2008, the national media has enjoyed poking fun and mischaracterizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans. From the reporting about her supposed shopping spree during the 2008 race for Vice President to the continuing rumors about her marriage, the media...

    Businesses must be willing to adapt or risk going out of business. Someone as ignorant as Michelle Nunn about basic economics should not be elected to the Senate Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to demagogue them for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012. Michelle’s cheap shots have lead her to create an ad campaign specifically focused on this narrative. Hours of countless...

    The ends justify the means, and the rule of law is sacrificed in the name of social justice Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed-upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution. Socialism’s goal was the use of all three in a comprehensive plan to bring about some chimera of social justice. There...

    Between October 19th and 21st 1941, the most infamous Nazi massacre in Serbia during the Second World War took place at Šumarice, just outside the town of Kragujevac, and in local villages. The event had a marked effect on the course of the war in the Balkans. The Nazis decreed that 100 people should be shot for every German killed, and 50 for every German wounded. One of the most shocking aspects of the massacre was that more than 200 pupils from local schools were taken out of their classes and shot. There are several stories of extraordinary individual sacrifice...

    This New York Post piece by Eliyahu Federman is spot-on (Hat Tip: Victor Shikhman). Abbas called Jews visiting the Temple Mount (Judaism’s holiest place) a “herd of cattle,” with no right to visit or worship there. Jewish visits, he said, were a desecration that must be stopped “by any means.” “Any means” turned out to include the murder of baby Chaya. What’s most remarkable is the US silence on Abbas’ remarks. Neither Secretary of State John Kerry nor any State Department spokesman condemned Abbas’ words comparing Jews to cattle. Even the US embassy in Israel failed to issue a...

Naturally in this supercharged era of divisive politics a number of these individuals are bound to be highly partisan.

Not surprisingly Obama will never acknowledge his guilt or apologize to the hospital staff – he only apologizes to oil rich Muslims. The delivery of Thomas Duncan, an Ebola infected West African to the Presby Emergency Room, has started a chain reaction that is destroying the hospital, the lives of the people who work there and the ability of local residents to receive vital health...

    At a time when state spending has reached a record high, proposals in a "Jobs Blueprint” posted on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer’s website would increase it by about $3.7 billion, according to an analysis by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. The extra money would go to public schools, universities, community colleges, film subsidies, state revenue sharing payments to local governments, higher unemployment benefits, universal pre-school programs and more. Schauer offers few details on how he would pay for the increases beyond non-specific suggestions like “cut wasteful spending to save taxpayer dollars,” "review state contracts" and “make government more...

They demanded that the homeowner, 67-year-old grandfather, Kenneth Byrd, his wife, 65-year-old Judy, and their 19-year-old granddaughter open a safe.  All three members of the Byrd family were badly beaten.  Then they started to rape the granddaughter,...

Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released a number of illegal aliens facing serious criminal charges that include “kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide,” the paper reports. Despite last year’s furor surrounding the release, the administration continued to insist that only “low-risk offenders who...

    In 1961, John F. Kennedy said the United States, beaten into space by Nikita Khrushchev’s Soviet Union, would put a man on the moon and return him to earth within the decade. In July 1969, President Nixon, on the deck of the carrier Hornet, welcomed home Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins of Apollo 11. What ever became of that America? What ever became of that can-do nation? What has happened to us? This October saw the vaunted Center for Disease Control and Prevention fumbling over basic questions on how to protect Americans from an Ebola epidemic in three small countries of...

    Zale Thompson, a Muslim man with quotes from the Quran all over his Facebook page and who attacked an NYPD officer with a hatchet, was not a radical Muslim, but instead was "just an angry guy," according to a new article by ABC. Thompson also wrote on Facebook (emphasis mine), "America's military is strong abroad, but they have never faced an internal mass revolt. They are weaker at home. We are scattered and decentralized, we can use this as an advantage. They are centralized and strong, which can be exploited as a weakness. Think of a swarm of bees (negroes)...

    Well, we had a good run: 6 days with no new Ebola cases. I mean, we’re no longer talking about fly over so it must be serious: Ebola in New York? Specifically, Ebowling in New York. The latest Ebola patient is a doc recently returned from his Doctors Without Borders stint in West Africa. He wisely called for a hazmat team to take him to the hospital Thursday morning, butt oddly he went bowling in Brooklyn the night before (via subway). I admire the doc’s good deeds butt maybe our “Doctors Without Borders” should be “Doctors WITH Borders” for their first...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 10/23/2014 | Anne Schieber
    Brighton teacher Adam Neuman went to Afghanistan to fight for freedom. Now he simply wants to exercise it back home. As a combat veteran who served in the Kandahar Province for nearly a year, the civics teacher regards attacks on his liberty as a personal affront. So, when the teachers union and his employer told him they were taking money from his paycheck to pay for a teacher to leave the classroom to work on union business, Neuman felt he had no choice but to sue. In August, Neuman quit the Michigan Education Association and its local affiliate, the Brighton...
  • Myth Of The Low Information Voter

    10/24/2014 5:08:00 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 39 replies
    There seems to be on the right an insistence that low information voters are destroying the country. This is promulgated by conservative media figures, particularly Rush Limbaugh who appears to have coined the phrase. There is plenty of reason to believe a lot of Americans are completely checked out of day to day political events. The number of people who can’t name the Vice President, Speaker of the House or any member of the Supreme Court is appalling. Equally as appalling is the inability of many Americans to name their Congressman, one Senator from their state or their state’s Governor....
  • PA House Moves to Spank Scofflaw Governments, Concurs with HB80 (preemption enforcement)

    Every one of the 50 states has some kind of firearms preemption law.   This makes perfect sense, as otherwise each town, county, and local government could enact a local ordinance to invalidate your right to keep and bear arms.   You could easily be placed in jail for an inadvertent violation of an ordiance that you never knew existed, just because you crossed an invisible political boundary. Pennsylvania has such a law, and it is a well thought out example.  There is only one problem; the means to enforce it is weak.   To prevent local governments form flouting the rule...

    Facilitating voter fraud, fomenting lynch mobs, and supporting failed policies as a matter of racial solidarity will not win black Americans greater respect But after the incredible failures of the First Black President, it's all the Democrats have left. The Department of Justice introduced an “expert witness” to a North Carolina court considering that state’s voter identification law who calmly explained that the requirement in inordinately onerous to black citizens because they tend to be “less sophisticated,” “less educated,” and “less attuned to public affairs” than other Americans. Can you imagine the outrage from Liberals in the press if a...
