Axelrod knew nothing about that secret Hillary email server he was sending mail to
7/1/2015 10:01:20 AM  Jazz Shaw
Drip, drip, drip. Another batch of Hillary Clinton emails went public yesterday and there will no doubt be plenty of stories coming out of them. (Not that anyone will notice, I’m sure.) But the Daily Caller noticed one particular set which have

Obama to announce US, Cuba will open embassies this month
7/1/2015 9:21:09 AM  Ed Morrissey
Fifty-four years after the rupture in US-Cuba diplomatic relations, both nations will announce today that they will once again host embassies and receive ambassadors from each other. The Associated Press reports that Barack Obama will make the

The new F-35 Lightning may be in trouble
7/1/2015 8:41:18 AM  Jazz Shaw
Earlier this year we talked about some of the initial flight testing of the new F-35 Lightning Joint Strike Fighter which was largely completed between January and April. After more than a trillion dollars in development costs and constant questions from

Greek offer to end default crisis a day late and €€ short
7/1/2015 8:01:33 AM  Ed Morrissey
Markets around the world, including the futures market for the US, leaped upward overnight on word that Greece had largely accepted the last proposal from the European Union to end the default crisis and keep the Greeks within the Eurozone.  Investors

Quotes of the day
6/30/2015 10:01:42 PM  Allahpundit
County clerks in Southern states that had struck a defiant tone on same-sex marriage began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples Monday, with state leaders pledging to protect the religious liberties of county workers who oppose such unions… But

Video: Yeah, it may be time to change the name of the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner
6/30/2015 8:41:20 PM  Matt Vespa
So, this happened (via Richmond Times-Dispatch): Hillary Rodham Clinton will headline the Democratic Party of Virginia's annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner on June 26. Details still are being finalized, but the event, traditionally held in Richmond, is

Marco Rubio: Why, yes, I do still support a path to citizenship for illegals
6/30/2015 8:01:18 PM  Allahpundit
A leftover from Friday’s candidate forum in New Hampshire via Eliana Johnson. I had a sense of deja vu watching this clip, and not just because I’ve blogged roughly a thousand Rubio statements on immigration over the past two years.

New plan: Let's all freak out over Amy Schumer
6/30/2015 7:21:15 PM  Jazz Shaw
In case you missed it (and many of you no doubt have) comedian Amy Schumer has been on a bit of a roll lately. Her show on Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer, is already in its third season, her standup gigs have been selling out and she stars in a new

Hugh Hewitt kicks off GOPAC's 2016 offensive
6/30/2015 6:41:01 PM  Matt Vespa
As stated in their history, GOPAC was founded in 1979 to recruit and elect new Republican leaders at the state and local level. This was after then-Delaware Gov. Pete du Pont noticed that Republicans were sort of a dying species in 1978. Well, it's

Rent control cities trying to regulate airbnb out of business
6/30/2015 6:01:57 PM  Jazz Shaw
Local and city governments hate freelance, citizen organized business activities such as Uber and airbnb. The reasons have always seemed rather obvious to me: you don’t want the peons rising up, upsetting the established order and cutting anyone

Ted Cruz: Trump shouldn't apologize for his comments about illegal immigrants
6/30/2015 5:21:10 PM  Allahpundit
Via Mediaite. "Are they mostly drug dealers and rapists coming across the border?" asks Steve Doocy, referring to the buzziest bit from Trump’s presidential announcement. Well, no, says Cruz. They’re not mostly that. But let’s not miss

Brave new world: de Blasio bans NYC employers from asking applicants about criminal history
6/30/2015 4:41:35 PM  Jazz Shaw
I’m guessing this is the new face of equality. Or at least a redefinition of sanity. In any case, welcome to the Big Apple, employers! (From the NY Daily News) In front of emotional supporters, Mayor de Blasio signed legislation Monday that will

Giant new Obama lie: I'm prepared to abandon these Iran nuke negotiations if we can't get a good deal
6/30/2015 4:01:31 PM  Allahpundit
This may be the single most brazen lie he’s told since the glory days of “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” In fact, I might go one better than that. For sheer lack of believability, this may be the most transparent

Is it too late to get the government out of marriage?
6/30/2015 3:21:42 PM  Ed Morrissey
Yesterday, Rand Paul articulated a path forward after Obergefell that would provide equal treatment under the law while preserving the free exercise of religion, which is to get government out of the marriage business. “All Americans have the right

CNN poll: 63% support Supreme Court's ObamaCare ruling, 59% support gay-marriage ruling
6/30/2015 2:41:27 PM  Allahpundit
It’s the first post-ruling poll I’ve seen in either case. There wasn’t much mystery about where the public was on ObamaCare subsidies — “free” money! — but there was a little suspense around the SSM decision in

Oh, by the way… Syria's probably about to use those chemical weapons they didn't have
6/30/2015 2:01:48 PM  Jazz Shaw
This item popped up in the Morning Jolt yesterday but I didn’t get around to looking at it until this morning. Bad news out of Syria is not only nothing new… at this point it’s almost a comma in the daily news feed. But when our own

If Hillary is too expensive, you can get Chelsea Clinton for big savings
6/30/2015 1:21:09 PM  Jazz Shaw
This is a story which I’ll confess I was hesitant to pick up today (more on that below) but the sheer audacity of the numbers involved makes it rather hard to ignore. The Washington Post notes this morning that one prominent university was looking

Paper that won't publish Mohammed cartoons oddly okay with Pope portrait made of condoms
6/30/2015 12:41:32 PM  Allahpundit
Becket Adams was all over this last night but searing hypocrisy is always worth blogging, even if it’s being blogged late. The portrait’s a commentary on Pope Benedict’s refusal to endorse condom use in Africa despite the epidemic of

Kurtz: Golly, the media have turned into an intolerant mob lately
6/30/2015 12:01:05 PM  Ed Morrissey
Some here would take issue with “lately,” but there’s no doubt now that the activism of media outlets has become impossible to ignore, especially after the orgy of media self-congratulation over the last few days. Fox’s Howard

ACLU: RFRAs are great except when they protect Christians
6/30/2015 11:21:20 AM  Taylor Millard
The American Civil Liberties Union no longer believes in civil liberties for all. It now believes in civil liberties for everyone but Christian businesses and nonprofits who don’t agree with the ACLU on gay marriage or contraception. Their

Open thread: Christiemania is loosed upon the GOP
6/30/2015 10:41:37 AM  Allahpundit
The big announcement is set for 11 a.m. ET. Here’s your thread to comment in case you’re watching live on cable news. Three years ago, Christie’s 2016 presidential entry would have shaped up as the biggest event of the pre-primary.
