7/17/2015 10:01:11 AM  Taylor Millard
It’s another episode of Politinerds with Jazz Shaw and Doug Mataconis. This week’s special guest is former Red Eye host (and current Gutfeld host) Greg Gutfeld! Interested in how he got into political commentary? When did he become a

Video: Chattanooga gunman not on counterterrorism radar
7/17/2015 9:21:02 AM  Ed Morrissey
Prior to opening fire on two military offices yesterday, Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez had not risen to the notice of federal counter-terrorism officials, NBC News reported earlier on the Today show. The report mentions that Abdulazeez’ father had

Perry to Halperin: So you're all good with that Planned Parenthood video, eh?
7/17/2015 8:41:37 AM  Ed Morrissey
I’m not exactly sure where Mark Halperin thought he would take Rick Perry in this exchange, but he clearly didn’t expect Perry to lead him into this trap. On Morning Joe yesterday, Halperin challenged Perry to more or less endorse Planned

Planned Parenthood's no-good, very bad, awful week continues
7/17/2015 8:01:55 AM  Dustin Siggins
It’s not been a good week if you’re Planned Parenthood. First, your senior director of medical services is busted describing how you use illegal abortions to illegally harvest the organs of unborn babies. Then your PR company tells you to

Quotes of the day
7/16/2015 10:41:21 PM  Allahpundit
U.S. and Iranian officials confirmed Thursday that no American nuclear inspectors will be permitted to enter the country's contested nuclear site under the parameters of a deal reached with world powers this week, according to multiple statements by

Video: What it's like to be a Jedi
7/16/2015 9:21:46 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate. In an age when a consumer laptop can edit video and run fairly sophisticated FX programs, this shouldn’t impress me as much as it does. What can I say? I’m a simple man, my friends. How simple? It didn’t really

Hillary: I wrote to NASA as a kid about becoming an astronaut and they told me "no women allowed"
7/16/2015 8:41:14 PM  Allahpundit
Hillary Clinton wouldn’t lie, would she? "When I was a little girl, I guess I was a teenager by then … 14, I think, and the space program was getting started, and I wanted to be an astronaut, and I wrote to NASA," she recounted. "And I said, 'What

YouGov: Near majority of Democrats think the Confederate flag should be banned by law in America
7/16/2015 8:01:40 PM  Allahpundit
Should we throw stones at the left for this? Yeah, c’mon. Let’s at least throw a couple. When it comes to the Confederate flag, however, 47% of Democrats support a ban while only 11% of Republicans feel the same. Only 36% of Democrats would

Media flashback: Clinton's nuclear deal with North Korea
7/16/2015 7:21:42 PM  Matt Vespa
Now that we have a "deal" with Iran, the Big Three–ABC, NBC, and CBS–centered on President Obama's "spirited defense" of what is shaping to be his signature foreign policy achievement; they also hailed it as “historic.” Thanks to our friends

ObamaCare: Still failing after all these years
7/16/2015 6:41:39 PM  Ed Morrissey
Before we get to ObamaCare, let’s recall the rationales for government imposing top-down control over one-sixth of the nation’s economy. First, we had to end the issue of the uninsured, which had spiked as a percentage of the population after

Poll: Almost three-fourths of the country don't take Trump's candidacy seriously
7/16/2015 6:01:47 PM  Matt Vespa
Only 25 percent of voters think Trump is a serious candidate for president, which has literally not changed since 1999. At that time, 23 percent of voters viewed Trump as a serious candidate when he ran briefly for the Reform Party's nomination the

Planned Parenthood president: Hey, sorry about that doctor's tone when she talked about crushing babies and removing their organs
7/16/2015 5:21:38 PM  Allahpundit
The art of killing and dismemberment deserves better than some wine-soaked rambling about “crushing” above and below the chest cavity to preserve the heart, liver, and other vital organs. That’s an entirely too … accurate

Video: Nip/Tuck actress finds gun ownership "life changing"
7/16/2015 4:41:18 PM  Ed Morrissey
Kelly Carlson may seem like an unlikely advocate for firearm ownership. Carlson, a Minnesota native, played Kimber Henry on the long-running series Nip/Tuck, and has worked in Hollywood for fourteen years. When police couldn’t resolve her stalker

Video: If men were treated like women in the workplace, featuring Carly Fiorina
7/16/2015 4:01:34 PM  Allahpundit
Reminds me of those ESPN ads where a star athlete wanders the halls of network HQ in Bristol, although this is more than just a promo. It’s a smart play by BuzzFeed, which has enough reach with young adults that it could probably get any candidate

Thursday TEMS: Duane Patterson, Ryan Anderson, Kerri Kupec
7/16/2015 3:21:07 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! Duane "Generalissimo" Patterson brings us up to date on the week's top stories and gives us a preview of tonight's Hugh Hewitt show. Heritage Foundation

7/16/2015 2:56:21 PM  Ed Morrissey
At least two Marines and one police officer got shot today at two military offices, a naval reserve center and an armed forces recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. CBS News reports that the suspect has been shot and killed, but as of now there is

Rick Perry: "Trump-ism" isn't conservatism, it's a toxic mix of demagoguery and nonsense
7/16/2015 2:41:16 PM  Allahpundit
The hardest shot yet at Trump from a fellow candidate. "Donald Trump continues to demonstrate his fundamental misunderstanding of border security. Make no mistake – border security is a federal responsibility, but when I met with President Obama last

Internet brutally mocks Amazon when Prime Day doesn't live up to the hype
7/16/2015 1:21:59 PM  C.T. Rex
Yesterday Amazon sought to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a huge blowout sale designed to rival the pre-Christmas purchasing binge that is Black Friday. “Step aside Black Friday, meet Prime Day”, they said, hoping people would use the

CBS: More undercover Planned Parenthood videos on the way
7/16/2015 12:41:36 PM  Ed Morrissey
When the group Center for Medical Progress released the now-infamous lunchtime conversation with Planned Parenthood’s senior medical adviser, some wondered why the group waited a year to publish the video. CBS News picked up the story this morning,

IBT: Hillary's tight with the same banks she's slamming, you know
7/16/2015 12:01:07 PM  Ed Morrissey
Actually, we do know, but it’s interesting to see David Sirota and Andrew Perez at International Business Times jump on this as well. Hillary Clinton ramped up the populist rhetoric by slamming the Obama administration over its failure to prosecute

McCain: Trump really fired up "the crazies" in Arizona with his immigration talk
7/16/2015 11:21:04 AM  Allahpundit
If there are any votes left among tea-party border hawks that haven’t already migrated (temporarily) to Trump, this ought to shake them loose. To think, there are conservatives out there in America today who are convinced their party’s elder

USA Today editors call for an end to "sanctuary cities"
7/16/2015 10:41:10 AM  Ed Morrissey
The case of Kate Steinle, the young woman shot and killed by an illegal immigrant, has prompted a heated debate over immigration policy and so-called “sanctuary cities.” San Francisco set Steinle’s killer free before the murder because
