Hot-take heaven: Spokane NAACP president allegedly faked being black
6/12/2015 10:01:01 AM  Ed Morrissey
Rachel Dolezal not only runs the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, she also teaches “Africana education” at Eastern Washington University, lists a master’s degree from traditionally black Howard University on her CV, and claims to have been

Cruz: Support for the TPA doesn't mean approval for the trade agreement
6/12/2015 9:21:16 AM  Ed Morrissey
The trade fight in the House looks bad for the White House this morning, while no one still knows what the actual trade agreement will look like in its final form. Ted Cruz explained to Hugh Hewitt that support for the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA)

Video: Third suspect arrested in Boston plot
6/12/2015 8:41:19 AM  Ed Morrissey
Law enforcement has finally caught the mysterious third man in the apparent plot to commit ISIS-inspired terrorism in Boston. Last week, police shot and killed Usaama Rahim in a confrontation in a parking lot, and arrested his nephew David Wright on

Ultimate White House trolling: Obama to "diversify" wealthy neighborhoods
6/12/2015 8:01:11 AM  Jazz Shaw
I remain hopeful that no matter how old you get you can continue to learn. It’s with that in mind that I should begin this article by noting that a number of our regular readers have chided me in the past for being too optimistic when it comes to

Quotes of the Day
6/11/2015 10:01:41 PM  Ed Morrissey
Then the comedian brought up the larger, follow-up Times story on Rubio's finances. This front-page exposé noted that Rubio bought three houses without putting any money down on two of them. When the Florida lawmaker received $800,000 for a book advance

Video: Sex abuse allegations emerge again with UN peacekeepers in Africa and Haiti
6/11/2015 9:21:46 PM  Ed Morrissey
For more than a decade, allegations of systemic sexual abuse and extortion have followed deployments of UN peacekeeping missions around the world. For more than a decade, the UN insists that it has a zero-tolerance policy for such violations of human

So, the liberal media really doesn't have anything on the GOP field, right?
6/11/2015 8:41:43 PM  Matt Vespa
We're entering a new level of silliness regarding The New York Times and their weird penchant for publishing stories about Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) that borders on bewilderment. One has to wonder if the Onion staff has taken over some of the Times'

Let's not pretend we don't want to try this freakshow hot dog pizza thing from Pizza Hut, shall we?
6/11/2015 8:01:15 PM  Allahpundit
I’m tired of the charade. Every time a chain rolls out some new frankenfood, we all look at each other nervously and then someone clears his throat and harrumphs, “Personally I find the thought of putting a sloppy joe between two Cinnabons

Great news: OPM hack started over a year ago, encompasses all federal employees
6/11/2015 7:21:52 PM  Ed Morrissey
Some on Twitter now call this a “Pearl Harbor” in cyberspace, but that may actually undersell the damage that we now know the US took in the hack on the Office of Personnel Management. On one hand, no one’s been killed; the US lost

Cleveland judge recommends murder charge for cop who shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice
6/11/2015 6:41:46 PM  Allahpundit
If that headline reads funny to you — since when do judges recommend charges? — re-read Jazz’s post from Tuesday about the procedural quirk in Ohio law. Those who want to see the cops indicted for shooting Rice after they spotted him

Scott Walker: Quite a few people have suggested a Walker/Rubio ticket to me
6/11/2015 6:01:42 PM  Allahpundit
Yeah, that’s the one I’ve seen the most buzz for on conservative Twitter in the early going, with Rubio/Walker a close second. It’s a no-brainer for a ticket: Young, racially diverse, executive plus legislative experience, midwestern

If SCOTUS guts subsidies, voters want Congress to fix Obamacare
6/11/2015 5:21:53 PM  Matt Vespa
As the Supreme Court prepares to unveil its decision on King v. Burwell, which could gut health care subsidies to millions of Americans on the exchanges–a point that some in the media say could harm Republicans. Hence, why some on the Hill are saying

Bad news, fellas: "You guys" now too sexist to tolerate
6/11/2015 4:41:06 PM  Ed Morrissey
And here I assumed that the valid objection to “you guys” was its lazy construction. Fortunately we have Vox’s Jenée Desmond-Harris to instruct the English-speaking world on the insult this “gendered” word imposes on women

Brutal Carly Fiorina ad: What's Hillary's biggest accomplishment as Secretary of State?
6/11/2015 4:01:53 PM  Allahpundit
Who knew that the candidate responsible for the legendary “demon sheep” ad had something like this in her? It’s three minutes long, which is about six times longer than an effective ad should be, but the length works here to underscore

Stewart: My, these Rubio scoops from the NYT are amazingly lame
6/11/2015 3:21:58 PM  Ed Morrissey
As it turns out, the Gray Lady’s strange, petty, and tone-deaf attacks on Marco Rubio’s financial struggles as a young man failed to impress nearly everybody — even those in its usual clique of media elites. “What’s the New

Thursday TEMS: Duane Patterson, Kyle Smith, Eli Lake
6/11/2015 2:51:38 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! Duane "Generalissimo" Patterson brings us up to date on the week's top stories and gives us a preview of tonight's Hugh Hewitt show. New York Post film

Isn't it about time we reduced security screening for atheists at airports?
6/11/2015 2:41:22 PM  Allahpundit
I like it. I like it a lot. And yet I can’t shake the feeling that this protocol might be somehow flawed. Alternate headline: “98 percent of Americans now identify as atheist.” As an atheist, my beliefs do not make me a

Sessions to House GOP: TPA a Trojan horse for executive action on immigration, climate change; Update: Dem opposition "growing"
6/11/2015 2:01:25 PM  Ed Morrissey
The White House demand for plenary negotiating authority (Trade Promotion Authority or TPA) on the Pacific Rim trade pact has done what many thought impossible — unite the Left and the Right. In fact, it’s even united them on the same issue,

Why is Jeb Bush's campaign surprised that he isn't running away with the race?
6/11/2015 1:21:37 PM  Allahpundit
I’ve read at least three variations on this story over the past few days and I’m still mystified. Donors are disappointed, strategists are baffled — everyone expected so much more from Bush 3.0. What did they expect? I’m asking

Video: The RNC takes the battle to Hillary early
6/11/2015 12:41:57 PM  Jazz Shaw
One of several complaints about the 2012 election, at least on the Republican side, was that much of the ground game was left entirely in the hands of the Romney campaign. And let’s face it… we were caught flat footed in a number of areas. It

Bill Clinton: Hey, no one's proven we're corrupt, right?
6/11/2015 12:01:37 PM  Ed Morrissey
Hasn’t this been the Clinton standard for the past 23 years, really? Former President Bill Clinton did an interview with Bloomberg in front of a live and friendly audience at the Clinton Global Initiative, and offered a response to allegations of

Video: Armed woman fights off five home invaders in Detroit
6/11/2015 11:21:38 AM  Allahpundit
Via the Free Beacon, yet another example of police chief James Craig’s endorsement of handguns for self-defense bearing fruit. The human-interest story is the draw here but the important part is the crime stats cited near the end. We already knew

Fox News vs New Hampshire over GOP debate
6/11/2015 10:41:51 AM  Jazz Shaw
This is going to be awkward, but I expect that Reince Priebus was anticipating a few bumps in the road like this. When the first Fox News GOP debate rolls around on August 6th, there won’t be enough seats on the stage to accommodate every announced
