Second Planned Parenthood baby body part selling video may be worse than the first
7/21/2015 10:01:08 AM  Jazz Shaw
After the last Baby Body Parts Sales video we were promised that there were more to come and the next shoe seems to have dropped today. Life News has released a second video, this one with Mary Gatter, a senior medical director with PP in California. In

John Kasich dumped from Democrat fundraiser just in time to announce POTUS bid
7/21/2015 9:21:39 AM  Jazz Shaw
UPDATE: As has been noted, the fundraiser item is from 1997, but that wasn’t made clear in the article originally. Apologies for the confusion. Today is the big day, Kasich fans! The Ohio governor is ready to officially jump into the sweepstakes

How the awful Sandra Bland case in Texas could have been avoided
7/21/2015 8:41:22 AM  Taylor Millard
Lost in the morass of last week’s discussion about the Iran deal, Donald Trump, Planned Parenthood, and the Chattanooga terrorist attack is the truly awful case of Sandra Bland in Texas. Bland died inside the Waller County Jail three days after

How #BlackLivesMatter may wind up sinking the Democrats
7/21/2015 8:01:55 AM  Jazz Shaw
When Janell Ross wrote a column at the Washington Post regarding "that Netroots Nation disaster" I thought it was going to be about the damage that was being done to progressives in general this season. She was discussing the awkward moment when an

Quotes of the day
7/20/2015 10:41:41 PM  Allahpundit
During my entire business career, I have always made supporting veterans a top priority because our heroes deserve the very best for defending our freedom. Our Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals are outdated dumps. I will build the finest and most

Video reveals: Sir Tim Hunt was joking, outrage mob still has his job
7/20/2015 10:01:09 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
As written about here previously, Nobel prize winning scientist Sir Tim Hunt of the United Kingdom lost his reputation and several affiliations and titles in the wake of joking incorrectly and crossing feminist outrage mobs in June. Several weeks after

Women, minorities responsible for concealed carry permit surge since 2007
7/20/2015 9:21:31 PM  Matt Vespa
My colleague Leah Barkoukis wrote about some great news over the weekend regarding concealed carry permits. The Crime Prevention Center reported that the number of permits has increased since 2007–and the murder rate has dropped. The main reason is that

"True Detective" grumble thread: Like blue balls in your heart
7/20/2015 8:41:59 PM  Allahpundit
“Blue balls in your heart” isn’t just a memorable bit of purple prose from last night’s typically terrible Frank Semyon dialogue, it’s a metaphor for this season. Anticipation keeps building that something

Video: Woman startles, frightens nation with "chillin' in Cedar Rapids" viral video
7/20/2015 8:01:42 PM  Guy Benson
I’m struggling to pinpoint my favorite part about this Vine from Hillary Clinton. Is it her charming, natural delivery? Is it the suspicion that this lighthearted act of fun-lovin’ spontaneity was focus-grouped for weeks and approved by

Kerry: The Iranians aren't "allowed" to spend the now-unfrozen $150 billion on terror operations
7/20/2015 7:21:02 PM  Matt Vespa
Piggybacking off Guy’s breakdown of the Iran deal, which was the subject of discussion on the Sunday morning talk shows this weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry gave the usual talking points, though he alleges that "anytime, anywhere"

ObamaCare: Fewer doctors but higher premiums and deductibles
7/20/2015 6:41:37 PM  Bruce McQuain
A new report by Avalere Health points out what an “improvement” ObamaCare has been: nrollees in ObamaCare plans have access to 34% fewer providers than those who buy a commercial plan outside the exchange. On average, it found, ObamaCare

Oh yes: Trump 24, Walker 13, Bush 12 in new ABC/WaPo national poll
7/20/2015 6:01:56 PM  Allahpundit
The most amazing data point in this poll? He was near 30 percent when they first started polling on Thursday — and then dropped off the table after his comments about McCain as a prisoner of war. Hmmmm. I’ve been through enough online

GI Bill being used to reimburse some very… interesting schools
7/20/2015 5:21:43 PM  Jazz Shaw
For those not familiar with the GI Bill – the program which provides numerous benefits for our veterans when they complete their terms of service – it can be a pretty good deal. It’s undergone several changes over the years (having

Gawker's EIC, executive editor resign after management yanks vile post
7/20/2015 4:41:23 PM  C.T. Rex
So if you haven’t heard, last week Gawker decided to publish an article attempting to out the CFO of Condé Nast as a gay guy looking to have sex with a male porn star, or as Ace put it: “Gawker Staff Smears Feces On Itself, Boards a Schoolbus

Jeb Bush versus Scott Walker: Should the next president be ready to attack Iran on day one?
7/20/2015 4:01:45 PM  Allahpundit
This is interesting less on the policy merits than as an early skirmish in the coming Bush-Walker primary war. Question: Should a new Republican president be prepared to tear up the Iran agreement and maybe act militarily on Inauguration Day 2017, or

NAACP still pushing to sandblast Confederate leaders from Stone Mountain
7/20/2015 3:21:31 PM  Jazz Shaw
Once the Confederate Battle Flag came down on the grounds of the South Carolina Capitol complex, the Left had won their great victory and everyone could go home and get on with their lives, right? (I’ll pause for a moment so everyone can finish

NYT reveals: Kerry tried to make Iran deal contingent on Congress's approval — but caved when other powers objected
7/20/2015 2:41:14 PM  Allahpundit
To follow-up on Bruce’s item earlier, it’s a comfort to know the White House put up some token resistance before finally selling out what little leverage the American people’s representatives still had over this deal. This sounds like

Iowa poll: Scott Walker cracks 20 percent, leads nearest contender by almost 10 points
7/20/2015 2:01:48 PM  Allahpundit
This isn’t the first time he’s topped 20 percent in Iowa, but it’s the first time he’s done it in three months, a meaningful data point given that the field’s almost set now. (Kasich will formally join the race tomorrow.)

Tobacco piracy quietly continues unabated
7/20/2015 1:21:23 PM  Jazz Shaw
If you distract the police with enough other problems, the “little things” get swept under the rug, much like broken windows I suppose. That seems to be the case with the ongoing plague of tobacco piracy in high sin tax states. New York is

Trump to Iowa evangelicals: I'm not sure I've ever asked God for forgiveness
7/20/2015 12:41:14 PM  Allahpundit
Take it from an atheist: Even an atheist could have faked a better answer than this. How is it that this guy, with all his billions, didn’t think to hire anyone to teach him to lie convincingly about faith when addressing an audience of Christian

Kerry: UN should vote on Iran treaty first and to believe otherwise is "presumptuous"
7/20/2015 12:01:00 PM  Bruce McQuain
It is amazing the machinations this administration will go through in an attempt to pass what is clearly a proposed treaty obligation for the US. “By any means necessary” comes to mind. Here we have the Secretary of State for the United

McCain's response to Trump puts the huckster to shame
7/20/2015 11:21:32 AM  Dustin Siggins
Over the weekend, America’s leading huckster decided to denigrate the service of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) as part of an escalating feud with the senator. Via Jazz: "He's not a war hero," Trump, a Republican running for president, said of McCain.

Only you can help Sharia law followers obtain loans
7/20/2015 10:41:05 AM  Jazz Shaw
When you think of Sharia law the first thing that probably comes to mind is all of the big ticket items which regularly make the news, particularly “honor killings” and the rest of the horror show which follows such practices. But as
