Hillary lets major donor know she opposes Israel boycott movement
7/7/2015 10:01:51 AM  Jazz Shaw
If Hillary Clinton is hoping to fire up the excitement of the far Left base, this certainly isn’t going to score her any points. The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) against Israel and in support of the Palestinians is a huge thing

Hey, who's up for … Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder?
7/7/2015 9:21:40 AM  Ed Morrissey
It’s a safe bet that Hot Air readers aren’t ready for Eric Holder to take a seat on the Supreme Court. Perhaps surprisingly, Eric Holder agrees, although almost certainly not for the same reasons. His demurral may seem a little surprising,

The next liberal boondoggle: universal pre-K
7/7/2015 8:41:56 AM  Jazz Shaw
Before Barack Obama exits stage Left, the Democrats have more plans up their sleeves in terms of “cementing his legacy” as an architect of the next stage of the Great Society. The newest proposal to be unveiled will be labeled

2005 Cosby deposition: I bought Quaaludes for women to have sex
7/7/2015 8:01:41 AM  Ed Morrissey
For years, Bill Cosby’s attorneys have tried to keep depositions sealed from an earlier legal action regarding his sexual activities, and now we know why. The Associated Press got their hands on a 2005 deposition in which the one-time king of

Quotes of the day

The shooting death of a woman on San Francisco pier allegedly by convicted felon illegally in the United States illustrates a disconnect between federal immigration officials who wanted him deported and local officials who ultimately let him

After the mob has moved on, we learn Nobel scientist Tim Hunt isn't a sexist monster
7/6/2015 10:01:02 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
It will likely surprise no one here that a story of international import with which social justice warriors took the most serious umbrage, hounding a Nobel-prize-winning 72-year-old scientist out of several honorary and employment positions, turned out

Reddit CEO Ellen Pao apologizes after Reddit community revolts
7/6/2015 9:21:29 PM  C.T. Rex
The “front page of the Internet” has had a rough time the last several months, but perhaps none more so than last week.  Following the unexpected termination of one of the site’s most popular admins, many of the Reddit communities (also

"True Detective" grumble thread: Blogger not sure he can take another week of this
7/6/2015 8:41:38 PM  Allahpundit
I’ve watched 67 episodes of “The Walking Dead” with no serious prospect of quitting yet I find the thought of another week of Farrell, McAdams, Kitsch, and Vaughn looking weary and not doing much of anything almost too much to bear.

NYT: Gee, there are more intact families living in red counties
7/6/2015 8:01:46 PM  Matt Vespa
To circle back on my previous post about the blue and red state models regarding families, there are positives and negatives to each model. Blue state families–for lack of a better term–are usually better educated, which leads to greater financial

Chris Christie: No, I won't promise to undo Obama's nuclear deal with Iran
7/6/2015 7:21:50 PM  Allahpundit
Here’s Christie’s whole campaign in a nutshell: He really is telling it like it is here, and not just in terms of what he’ll do as president but what the rest of the field will do too, but I can’t understand what he thinks

NRA: Uh, don't use the gay marriage ruling to justify national reciprocity on concealed carry, folks
7/6/2015 6:41:38 PM  Matt Vespa
Across social media, there have been memes, blog posts, and articles about how the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges should be applied to national reciprocity regarding concealed carry permits. The day national reciprocity for

Obama on ISIS: "Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas"
7/6/2015 6:01:41 PM  Allahpundit
Via RCP, bear in mind that one of the can’t-miss ideas recently floated by a former Obama administration advisor is that gay marriage might defeat ISIS. This is the sort of thing you say when you’re trying to break it to people that victory

That "shirtstorm" scientist may have discovered alien life on his comet
7/6/2015 5:21:03 PM  Jazz Shaw
Say… do you remember British astrophysicist Matt Taylor? He was the guy who helped perform the amazing feat of landing a probe on a comet. Well… it was amazing until people realized he was wearing a shirt with some hot Dungeons & Dragons

South Carolina Senate votes to remove Confederate flag from state house grounds, 37-3
7/6/2015 4:41:21 PM  Allahpundit
“I don’t think that this is going to be easy. I don’t think that it’s going to be painless,” Nikki Haley told NBC this weekend. I dunno. Seems pretty easy and painless so far. The S.C. Senate moved forward with plans Monday

Scarborough flips out: Why are these GOP candidates so damned gloomy about America's prospects?
7/6/2015 4:01:49 PM  Allahpundit
The key bit comes at 2:20. The Free Beacon is celebrating this for Scarborough’s beastmode pro-American rant but that rant is in service to an odd knock on GOP candidates. Why is the party of Reagan seemingly so bearish about America these days, he

That Trump "racist attack on Bush's wife" tweet may be a bit overstated
7/6/2015 3:21:37 PM  Jazz Shaw
I’ve seen multiple versions of this story thus far, some more dire than others. The brouhaha apparently started when somebody noticed a tweet in The Donald’s timeline making reference to Jeb Bush’s wife. The various descriptions seemed

Culture War 4.0: The "overreach" cycle
7/6/2015 2:41:07 PM  Bruce McQuain
Benjamin Domenech and Robert Tracinski have an intriguing article up at The Federalist in which they opine the left in general, and Social Justice Warriors in particular, are setting up a huge cultural backlash by their triumphalism and overreach

#BlackLivesMatter crew burns the wrong flag in Tampa
7/6/2015 2:01:55 PM  Jazz Shaw
With so many protests going on these days it’s hard to keep track of them all, say nothing of cover every one that happens. But a story crossed the transom today which I believe provides a look at how murky the entire Social Justice Warrior

Illegal deported five times who shot woman: I came back to San Francisco because it was a sanctuary city
7/6/2015 1:21:29 PM  Allahpundit
A horrifying lesson in incentives for which there’s plenty of blame to go around. Blame for San Francisco, of course, because it’s a sanctuary city where local PD won’t ask residents about their immigration status. Blame for ICE, who

Christie: "I'm a better person now"
7/6/2015 12:41:06 PM  Jazz Shaw
Chris Christie took time out from traveling around in what appears to be his new home of New Hampshire today and returned for his first appearance on Morning Joe in roughly two years. The absence has been noted, since he used to seem to be fairly chummy

Video: Bernie Sanders is modeling himself as the liberal Ted Cruz
7/6/2015 12:01:08 PM  Jazz Shaw
Bernie Sanders may not be on his way to the Democrat nomination, but he’s bound and determined to make things uncomfortable for Hillary and continue amusing conservatives for as long as he can keep this broken field run going. Bernie was one of the

Hillary spokesman: We roped off the media like animals to keep her parade appearance from becoming "chaotic"
7/6/2015 11:21:58 AM  Allahpundit
Via the Examiner, count me in with John Nolte and Sean Davis in wondering why this grand humiliation is being treated as a Hillary scandal instead of a media scandal. Clinton advance aides create a rope line for the press, moving with the candidate

De-Confederatizing the U.S. won't solve anything
7/6/2015 10:41:43 AM  Taylor Millard
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," George Santayana in The Life of Reason. The Civil War was an awful time of American history. It pitted brother against brother, neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, and state
