7/10/2015 10:01:12 AM  Jazz Shaw

OPM chief: I won't quit

7/10/2015 8:01:01 AM  Jazz Shaw
I haven’t picked up a copy of Ted Cruz’s new book, A Time for Truth yet, but it’s on my list. (I always bring a few books on my summer fishing trip, which comes in handy when it inevitably rains half the time.) There is another list,

7/9/2015 10:01:30 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
I remind you once again that a Washington Post thumb-sucking piece about civility in 2009 referred to Alan Grayson as “a Harvard graduate with a soft voice, [who] had decided to fight invective with invective.” He was forced, you see, by the

Is it time for mandatory cameras in trains?
7/9/2015 9:21:42 PM  Jazz Shaw

Three Pinocchios for Hillary's claim that "everything I did" with emails was permitted
7/9/2015 6:41:41 PM  Jazz Shaw
I realize that in the past we’ve had more than a little fun with the Washington Post fact checkers and the frequently odd results they produce. (The most recent and classic was their Four Pinocchio rating of Mike Huckabee for a series of things he

Great news, Oregon. 15 year olds can now get govt funded sex change surgery without parental permission
7/9/2015 5:21:57 PM  Jazz Shaw
Some days I really feel like I’d do better if I could switch jobs for a while and just go mow lawns or something. (I know… many of you have been suggesting the same thing for me for some time now.) If I made a move like that, maybe I

Shock and awe: GOP establishment dumps $103 million into Jeb Bush's Super PAC
7/9/2015 4:41:16 PM  Allahpundit
The plan back in January was to raise $100 million in just three months, terrifying would-be candidates like Rubio and Walker into sitting out the race and clearing the field for Jeb in the party’s center. It didn’t work out that way. They

"I have heard enough about heritage!": SC Republican rep demands that Confederate flag be removed
7/9/2015 4:01:48 PM  Allahpundit

House committee subpoenas Kerry's Keystone documents
7/9/2015 3:21:49 PM  Jazz Shaw

Trump: Why, no, I won't commit to backing the Republican nominee in the general election
7/9/2015 2:41:42 PM  Allahpundit
Let me toss this thought at you, and if you don’t like it, you can give it right back: Clinton 45, Walker 42, Trump 13. No, just kidding. That’s unrealistic. What I meant was Clinton 45, Bush 42, Trump 13. If we’re destined to have

7/9/2015 2:01:42 PM  Ed Morrissey

YouGov poll: Trump now leads GOP field nationally with 15%
7/9/2015 1:21:09 PM  Allahpundit
This is, I believe, his first lead in any national poll. One word, my friends: Yuge. The bad news: More than four in 10 Republicans say they don’t like him, so if he hangs around long enough to be part of a two- or three-man race, he’ll meet

7/9/2015 11:21:18 AM  Allahpundit
It’s clear in context what he meant and ABC did a creditable job in the clip below backing him up with numbers, but a damaging soundbite is halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on. "My aspiration for the country and I believe
