How the liberal media sabotages #BlackLivesMatter in times of trouble
6/19/2015 10:01:11 AM  Jazz Shaw
I realize we’ve been hitting the South Carolina shooting and the disgusting, racist criminal who allegedly perpetrated the murders rather often since yesterday morning. Unfortunately, nothing as serious and tragic as this can unfold in America

Can Congress override a veto on repeal of medical-device tax?
6/19/2015 9:21:02 AM  Ed Morrissey
Barack Obama and the White House threaten vetoes daily on bills under consideration in the Republican-controlled Congress, especially those impacting Obama’s signature health-care system. That threat may end up backfiring on Obama when it comes to

Williams quasi-mea culpa: "A bad urge inside me … ego driven"
6/19/2015 8:41:16 AM  Ed Morrissey
Yesterday, NBC announced that its long-running drama over the Nightly News anchor seat had concluded with Lester Holt keeping the job permanently. The network banished disgraced former anchor Brian Williams to the least-watched American cable news

"This kind of violence doesn't happen elsewhere" for a reason
6/19/2015 8:01:42 AM  Jazz Shaw
After the violence in South Carolina yesterday, the President wasted no time before leaping into action, stepping up to the podium and lecturing us all about how flawed the nation’s gun control laws are. (After which, he wasted no time in flying

Quotes of the day
6/18/2015 10:01:56 PM  Allahpundit
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton challenged the nation Thursday to take new actions to curb gun violence in her first reactions to the shooting inside a historically black Charleston, S.C., church that left nine dead. "How many people do we need

Video: Arson torches church on site of the Miracle of the Loaves and Fish
6/18/2015 8:41:15 PM  Ed Morrissey
One or more arsonists burned the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Tabgha, Israel, the site of an ancient church that marks the traditional location of the miracle performed by Jesus in Galilee. The main structure of the building

Video: The Schwarzenegger "Madame Tussaud" prank
6/18/2015 8:01:50 PM  Allahpundit
Something silly-sweet to cleanse the palate on a dark, sour news day. Has this ever happened before? A famous actor (never mind former governor) in costume as his most iconic character, a figure recognizable instantly by people around the world, hamming

Millennials don't trust anyone
6/18/2015 7:21:34 PM  Jazz Shaw
We’ve seen a few reports recently purporting to show that millennials are pretty much the worst people ever. (Okay… that might be a bit harsh.) All kidding aside, the trends show that, as a group, they tend to be the least likely to be

Video: Teen invents device to alert police and family when attacked
6/18/2015 6:41:32 PM  Ed Morrissey
Crystal Sanchez calls this the “Guardian Locket,” and her teacher in the Southern California city of Lawndale calls it “perfect.” CBS in Los Angeles calls it “potentially life-saving,” and many may wonder why no one

Charleston suspect's roommate: He'd been planning something like this for six months
6/18/2015 6:01:53 PM  Allahpundit
Thanks for letting us know a day after the information would have been useful, guy. Dylann Roof, the alleged gunman authorities say is responsible for killing nine people in a predominantly black Charleston, South Carolina, church Wednesday night, had

The Hillary Clinton economic plan: "Revenue enhancements" and massive ObamaCare spending increases
6/18/2015 5:21:59 PM  Ed Morrissey
While the media has rushed to pick apart policy proposals from Republican presidential candidates, not much attention has focused on Hillary Clinton’s positions — because she hasn’t staked out any. Even though she has campaigned for

Gallup: Yes indeed, Democrats are becoming more liberal
6/18/2015 4:41:52 PM  Allahpundit
But … I’ve been reliably informed by lefty media over the past five years that tea-party radicals are the exclusive drivers of ideological polarization. While the GOP drifts ever further rightward, Democrats remain stubbornly stuck in the

House GOP has a post-SCOTUS Obamacare plan
6/18/2015 4:01:34 PM  Gabriel Malor
We knew this was coming. If the Supreme Court holds in King v. Burwell that the IRS illegally provided subsidies to Obamacare customers in states with federally-established exchanges and it doesn’t stay its decision, then such subsidies will almost

Thursday TEMS: Duane Patterson, Andrew Malcolm, John-Henry Westen

The federal agency that was mega-hacked by China apparently outsourced some of its data management to … China
6/18/2015 2:41:02 PM  Allahpundit
A leftover from yesterday that shouldn’t be missed. As you read this, bear in mind that our leader continues to insist he has complete confidence in OPM and its director. Some of the contractors that have helped OPM with managing internal data have

Supreme Court: Texas's ban on Confederate-flag license plates doesn't violate the First Amendment
6/18/2015 2:01:40 PM  Allahpundit
Thorny question for the Court: When a group applies to sponsor a license-plate design that the state considers offensive, does the state have the power to say no? If it doesn’t then the state is arguably being forced to endorse a message it

Obama: This kind of violence doesn't happen elsewhere, you know
6/18/2015 1:21:02 PM  Ed Morrissey
Please pray for those who have lost their lives in Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church, for their families and friends, and for their entire community. Our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering, and need our prayers and support. Let’s

Media analysts wonder: What does Williams move say about MSNBC?
6/18/2015 12:41:10 PM  Ed Morrissey
What does this say about MSNBC — and NBC News, for that matter? Inquiring minds in the media would like to know. It confirms an argument long made about MSNBC by conservatives, which is that it has no credibility as a news bureau, even while

Scott Walker moving to weaken tenure for state college professors
6/18/2015 12:01:02 PM  Jazz Shaw
Scott Walker has formed a Testing the Waters Committee, which I assume has something to do with Marco Rubio’s response to the State of the Union in 2013. (Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.) The new committee will provide

Surprise: Woman to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, not Andrew Jackson on the $20

Ben Domenech wonders how early America’s most famous self-made man, who fought by Washington’s side in the revolution, who co-wrote the Federalist Papers, who constructed the country’s financial system, and who was decades ahead of his

House and Senate to vote on trade bill again — without TAA; Update: New TPA bill passes 218-204
6/18/2015 10:41:56 AM  Ed Morrissey
Sometimes the shortest distance between two points is, er … to keep doubling back and retracing your steps. At least that will be the argument on Capitol Hill today, along with a big trust us to progressives opposed to Barack Obama’s
