Obama's new climate plan is brilliant… at punishing his red state opponents
8/13/2015 10:01:58 AM  Jazz Shaw
When the first draft of the EPA’s new “Clean Power Plan” came out it was pretty bad. Unfortunately, it didn’t capture much in the way of media attention because there were too many other shiny objects and squirrels out there for

Dems in panic mode as Hillary's team lawyers up
8/13/2015 9:21:22 AM  Ed Morrissey
As the Saga of the Secret Server continues to unfold, Democrats are finding Hillary Clinton’s reassurances and talking points less and less convincing. The FBI took possession of the server yesterday afternoon after retrieving it from Platte River

Tom Steyer wants to know why the gas prices he jacked up are so high
8/13/2015 8:41:13 AM  Jazz Shaw
Billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer wants to be the next governor of California, at least according to west coast insiders. (Why on Earth anyone would want that job at this moment in history remains a mystery for the ages.) If you’re going to

Trump promises detailed issue stances soon
8/13/2015 8:01:26 AM  Taylor Millard
Donald Trump is promising he’s going to release detailed policy stances soon. He told reporters in Michigan yesterday why he wasn’t getting into a lot of specifics at the moment. I think you’re gonna see lots of plans and you’re

Quotes of the day

1) Trump’s success will shake up the political establishment — “I’m seriously thinking about voting for trump, and here is why. I firmly believe that our system of government is deeply flawed, if not completely broken. Yet we

Video: NBC Nightly News isn't even buying the Hillary spin on the e-mail server
8/12/2015 10:01:51 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
You’re telling me the Camp Hillary virtuoso of spin, Jennifer Palmieri, went to the trouble of sending out an op-ed length nonsense-gram to Hillary supporters today and she couldn’t even sway the network news? She may indeed be in trouble. As

Jesse Ventura: I'd like to be Trump's running mate
8/12/2015 8:41:12 PM  Ed Morrissey
Well, why not? One’s a pot-stirrer with occasional ties to professional wrestling, and the other is … the former governor of Minnesota. Those who don’t recall Jesse Ventura’s foray into statewide politics may not realize it, but

A tiny tale of government accountability
8/12/2015 8:01:08 PM  Jazz Shaw
We spend far too much time here talking about government waste and abuse, as well as the generally failed efforts to curb same. The government wastes so much money right under your noses that it must seem some days as if it’s just not worth

Hot new theory: If Congress blocks the nuclear deal, will Obama lift sanctions on Iran anyway?
8/12/2015 7:21:28 PM  Allahpundit
You know the drill. In post-constitutional America, when The Leader doesn’t get what he wants from Congress, he’s forced to simply take it instead. For the common good. In a saner age, the idea that Obama might defy Congress’s will

Will Trump pull a Perot? WSJ sees no signs of it — yet
8/12/2015 6:41:33 PM  Ed Morrissey
Twenty-three years ago, H. Ross Perot threw a historic monkey wrench into the two-party system, using his personal wealth to launch the most serious independent presidential bid in a generation. Thanks to a populist message and dissatisfaction with

Video: "Klintonerdämmerung"
8/12/2015 6:01:57 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate, a clever little hit on Hillary that’s making righties on Twitter laugh today. If you wanted another milepost that online culture is changing fundamentally, here you go — in the endless quest to mock our political

CNN poll of Iowa: Trump 22, Carson 14, Walker 9, Cruz 8, Fiorina 7
8/12/2015 5:21:13 PM  Allahpundit
This is, I believe, the first poll of the GOP race since the debate conducted by a major news network using traditional phone calls instead of the Internet, so if you’re looking for reasons to give this one extra credence, there you

Finally, a complaint about "entitlement" we can all get behind
8/12/2015 4:41:24 PM  Jazz Shaw
It’s yet another sign of the times that a perfectly serviceable word like “entitlement’ has gotten such a bad name. If you hear it or read it these days it’s either about entitlement programs or, more likely, a Check Your

The fantasy of Right wing political correctness
8/12/2015 4:01:11 PM  Jazz Shaw
Who exactly is shutting down speech in the name of political correctness in America today? I’d been comfortably sailing along thinking I knew the answer to that one, but then along comes Catherine Rampell to ruin my day. In a lengthy diatribe at

Team Hillary: E-mail claims just campaign trail "nonsense"
8/12/2015 3:21:01 PM  Ed Morrissey
The Hillary Clinton campaign tried a new tack in their defense of the former Secretary of State after she finally surrendered the Clintonemail server to the FBI. Earlier, Jennifer Palmieri tried implying that the State Department’s problems with

Echelon Insights post-debate poll: Trump 29, Carson 10, Fiorina 9, Rubio 9, Bush 9
8/12/2015 2:41:34 PM  Allahpundit
Alternate headline: “Blogger to start gaming out President Trump’s possible VP nominees.” On the one hand, as noted by my pal Karl, this poll was conducted using Google Consumer Surveys. If you’re wary of online polls, especially

Trump on a wealth tax: A very conservative thing to do, if it's helping pay down the national debt
8/12/2015 2:01:03 PM  Allahpundit
Nice catch by Jamie Weinstein from last night’s Trump interview with Hannity. Skip to 3:55 of the clip below for the key bit. To be clear, this an idea Trump proposed 15 years ago, not one he’s proposing now, and he stresses that he would

Hillary shows Bernie how to deal with #BlackLivesMatter
8/12/2015 1:21:08 PM  Jazz Shaw
This past weekend I talked about how Bernie Sanders has effectively surrendered his campaign to the Black Lives Matter movement and the shameful way that he allowed a handful of protesters to take over his events and boot him from his own stage. I may

Video: O'Keefe bowls six strikes in a row with DHS
8/12/2015 12:41:39 PM  Ed Morrissey
Not long ago, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe embarrassed the Border Patrol by walking into the US across the Rio Grande dressed as Osama bin Laden without anyone stopping him.  That resulted in a dressing-down of DHS officials in a Senate

Government contractor groups ask Obama to lay off the executive orders already
8/12/2015 12:01:52 PM  Jazz Shaw
The President has probably significantly expanded the Oval Office budget just in the cost of pens with all of the new executive orders he’s been signing. One thing most of them have in common is that as soon as Barack Obama puts down the pen,

Trump: If Black Lives Matter protesters try to take over my rally like they did Bernie Sanders's, there'll be a fight
8/12/2015 11:21:10 AM  Allahpundit
I thought we’d already reached Peak Trumpmania but if his next speech ends with Trump’s bodyguards going toe to toe with left-wing black activists trying to commandeer his stage to rant against the police, we might yet see him crack 50
