Video: Did the US spy on German media?
7/3/2015 10:01:31 AM  Ed Morrissey
Earlier in the week, more allegations of US eavesdropping on German officials emerged, not just involving Angela Merkel but also some of her minsters. Merkel summoned the US ambassador yesterday to explain the latest Wikileaks release. The leaked

Politinerds: Rob George of the New York Post
7/3/2015 8:41:47 AM  Jazz Shaw
This week on Politinerds we talked with Robert George, editorial writer for the New York Post and a conservative/libertarian pundit, as well as a regular TV commentator on Fox, CNN, MSNBC and other outlets. Rob is originally from Trinidad and came to

Video: Flag burners "dispersed" by veterans, bikers
7/3/2015 8:01:20 AM  Jazz Shaw
Since many of you are probably enjoying a long weekend as we recognize the nation’s birthday, let’s start things off today with an uplifting, patriotic story. What are your holiday plans? Perhaps you’re putting up Old Glory, going to a

Quotes of the day
7/2/2015 8:01:19 PM  Allahpundit
"If you look at the statistics of people coming, you look at the statistics on rape, on crime, on everything coming in illegally into this country it's mind-boggling!" [Trump] said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday night. Trump, who has already

Peak Vox: The American Revolution was a mistake, you know
7/2/2015 7:21:24 PM  Ed Morrissey
Generally, I’m not one to hammer on outlets as a whole, although some — Salon comes to mind — seem to use trolling people with ridiculous premises as their entire marketing strategy. Vox has its moments like this, although they also

It begins, maybe: Montana trio apply for marriage license, threaten suit
7/2/2015 6:41:30 PM  Ed Morrissey
I wonder what took them so long. Three business days after the Obergefell decision that recognized same-sex marriage as a constitutional right, Nathan Collier decided to demand that the Montana state government recognize that love is love … is

Video: "Town Hall Meeting"
7/2/2015 6:01:24 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate ahead of a mercifully long holiday weekend, and to whet your appetite for the start of debate season next month, silly fun from Key & Peele. Speaking of which, will Diamond Joe be part of the first Democratic debate? All signs

Chris Christie to county clerks: You must uphold the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling
7/2/2015 5:21:59 PM  Allahpundit
Bobby Jindal’s office assured Louisiana clerks that they can invoke his executive order on religious freedom if they have a conscientious objection to issuing a license to a gay couple, but that’s a risky proposition for a middle-class civil

Did Obama block Arab allies from directly arming the Kurds?
7/2/2015 4:41:37 PM  Ed Morrissey
So far, the only two facts we know about defeating ISIS is that the US strategy hasn’t worked, but the Kurdish Peshmerga can do it if they get the resources. Kurdish forces have been resilient, motivated, and effective, while the Iraqi army has all

NASCAR to fans: No more Confederate flags at our races, okay?
7/2/2015 4:01:00 PM  Allahpundit
If we’re going to purge “The Dukes of Hazzard,” we might as well get Confederate flags out of American car culture entirely, I guess. For once, I think this is more than mindless corporate piggybacking on a social trend. According to a

Thursday TEMS: Duane Patterson, Andrew Malcolm
7/2/2015 3:21:59 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! Today’s broadcast will take place on Ustream, so be sure to tune in on that channel … Duane "Generalissimo" Patterson brings us up to date on the

Scott Walker privately reassures ally: "I'm not going nativist; I'm still pro-immigration"
7/2/2015 2:41:24 PM  Allahpundit
Is this news? Nothing he told Stephen Moore in this account is strictly inconsistent with what he said a few months ago about reducing legal immigration as president. Walker was careful at the time to say that was something he wanted to look at, to see

Why the Puerto Rico fiscal crisis could matter in 2016
7/2/2015 2:01:51 PM  Ed Morrissey
Puerto Rico’s finances have been a disaster for a while, but the scale of their potential municipal default makes the crisis surprising nonetheless. The news of a default certainly came as a surprise to Puerto Ricans, who had consistently been told

Jeffrey Neely, the GSA "hot tub" exec to spend three months in prison
7/2/2015 1:21:02 PM  Jazz Shaw
This seems to be the week for old government corruption to be cleaned up. First we heard about Leland Yee packing his bags for the crowbar motel and now we see that Jeffrey Neely will be doing three months (?) in prison. This is a name that you’re

Bad news from Mr. Sulu: Clarence Thomas is a "clown in blackface"
7/2/2015 12:41:14 PM  Allahpundit
Via the Free Beacon, I think it was Dan McLaughlin of Red State who tweeted after last week’s SSM decision was released, “Now the contest begins to see who’ll be the angriest winner.” His point was that, for a movement

Whatever happened to Leland Yee? Oh. He's going to prison
7/2/2015 12:01:10 PM  Jazz Shaw
Do you remember California Democrat state senator Leland Yee? If you were relying on the mainstream media for information about his curious case a little over a year ago you might not even know his name. One of the most corrupt elected officials in the

Time to start a pool: When will Bernie Sanders pass Hillary in Iowa or New Hampshire polling?
7/2/2015 11:21:58 AM  Allahpundit
I put that question to Twitter after seeing today’s new Quinnipiac poll and a wiseguy tweeted back, “Labor Day, of course.” I dunno. You really think it’ll take another two months to catch her at this rate? Vermont Sen. Bernie

Video: Former CNN reporter shoots and kills robber to protect wife — a former CNN anchor
7/2/2015 10:41:09 AM  Ed Morrissey
At first, former CNN Headline News anchor Lynne Russell says, she didn’t think she or her husband Chuck de Caro would need to use the handguns they routinely carry for self-protection from the robber they encountered at a Motel 6 in Albuquerque.
