Video: Hillary gets upbraided by #BlackLivesMatter activists for "mass incarceration system"
8/18/2015 10:01:02 AM  Ed Morrissey
“You have been partially responsible for this,” says the Black Lives Matter activist taking the lead in this exchange in Boston with Hillary Clinton,” more than most.” The “mass incarceration” system is designed to

Rowan County, Kentucky's last stand on gay marriage licenses
8/18/2015 9:21:32 AM  Jazz Shaw
Kentucky, the home of one half of the infamous Hatfield v McCoy battles, has another fight raging and this time it’s in the courts. Following the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage, the clerk of Rowan County, Kim Davis, gained some

Green-jobs initiative in CA creates jobs … for consultants and auditors
8/18/2015 8:41:19 AM  Ed Morrissey
The next time a politician talks about creating a green economy, just remember that the green goes to the consultants and bureaucrats. In 2012, California voters passed an initiative that hiked business taxes that would supposedly fund research,

Ho hum. Another day, another poll. CNN finds Trump triumphing
8/18/2015 8:01:04 AM  Jazz Shaw
This weekend we saw one of the first big, deep sample phone polls since the debates and it came from Fox News. This morning the next shoe dropped when CNN/ORC released their matching survey and the number of differences between the two at the top are

Feds spent $160 million on body scanners that don't work and everyone hates
8/17/2015 9:31:11 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Government is just a word for incredibly expensive, ineffective, and inconvenient things we do together. It's now becoming clear exactly how many tens of millions of dollars the TSA spent on body scanners that have missed airport security threats,

Video: Steeler star rejects participation trophies for sons
8/17/2015 8:41:17 PM  Ed Morrissey
It started with this Instagram post, and turned into a national conversation on our obsession over self-esteem. James Harrison certainly has earned his share of trophies and accolades … but that’s Harrison’s issue with the trophies his

Scott Walker on Trump's immigration plan: I oppose birthright citizenship for children of illegals too, you know; Update: So does Jindal
8/17/2015 8:01:49 PM  Allahpundit
Poor Walker, who’s now getting a taste of how Rand Paul felt after he got Trumped. Rand spent five years cultivating his image as the Republican you should support for president if you’re tired of how Republicans in Washington do business.

Glenn Beck on Sean Hannity: We're at an impasse because I don't understand why conservatives trust Trump
8/17/2015 7:21:23 PM  Allahpundit
Via the Blaze, consider this an open thread for when Hannity interviews Beck about Trump later tonight at 10 p.m. on his Fox show. There are a million fascinating subplots to Trumpmania and one of them is the sometimes friendly, sometimes not so friendly

This year it will be Marco Rubio pushing grandma's wheelchair off the cliff
8/17/2015 6:41:26 PM  Jazz Shaw
Last week was the 80th anniversary of Social Security, which of course meant that everyone had to weigh in on how the program should or should not be fixed and bend a knee to the appropriate voter groups. Among those was Florida Senator and presidential

Christie: How would the media have reacted if I'd deleted the Bridgegate e-mails?
8/17/2015 6:01:13 PM  Ed Morrissey
With a number of new revelations coming out today in the Saga of the Secret Server, Chris Christie got an opportunity to start off the morning on CNN’s New Day with a two-target slam. Christie did two segments with Alyson Camerota and Chris Cuomo

NLRB boots idea of unionized college atheletes
8/17/2015 5:21:45 PM  Jazz Shaw
When an NLRB director in Illinois made the decision last year to allow student athletes at Northwestern University to organize as a union it raised a lot of eyebrows. (How does one organize the labor of people who don’t get paid?) But that question

Today's online outrage: Sorority girls under fire for being bad role models or something
8/17/2015 4:41:57 PM  Allahpundit
To cleanse the palate, I’m grateful to live in a country where women won’t be allowed to act silly without first pausing to ask themselves, “Wait, am I being ‘hyper-feminine?'” Think of how terrible an influence the clip

Walker to union protester: "I am not intimidated by you sir!"
8/17/2015 4:01:14 PM  Ed Morrissey
Look, if unions want to send people to disrupt a Scott Walker speech, they should have learned by now that this is not a one-person job. Walker faced down thousands of protesters in Madison four years ago to pass Act 10, and union organizers who tried to

Are Trump's immigration views in or out of the mainstream?
8/17/2015 3:21:47 PM  Allahpundit
The answer, I think, depends on how you define “mainstream” — and, actually, how you define “Trump’s views” The big headline from yesterday’s “Meet the Press” interview is that he wants to deport all

Bernie's "elevator pitch for socialism" is simply awesome
8/17/2015 2:41:34 PM  Jazz Shaw
New York Times Magazine has found somebody to ask Bernie Sanders some of the more interesting questions which are on the lips of many Americans, even if it wound up being Ana Marie Cox. She caught up with the Senator on the trail and took the plunge,

Mark Halperin: Some GOP rivals now think Trump could win Iowa, the nomination — even the presidency
8/17/2015 2:01:37 PM  Allahpundit
Via Breitbart, I can definitely see him winning Iowa, which would all but finish off Scott Walker. I can also kinda sorta see him winning the general election if everything broke right for him — scandals blow up what’s left of Hillary’s

Oh my: State Dept suddenly finds thousands of Hillary aide's e-mails they denied existing in 2013
8/17/2015 1:21:07 PM  Ed Morrissey
And these were on official State Department systems, too. Gawker has fought to gain access to longtime Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines’ e-mails for two years in order to see communications between the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and

Cillizza: it's too late to draft anyone but Hillary now
8/17/2015 12:41:10 PM  Jazz Shaw
Some people are just wet blankets who want to take the fun out of everything. One such Debby Downer is the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza who thinks we’re all getting a bit too carried away with talk of Democrat voters feeling the Bern or

Scarborough: Say, where was the FBI for the last six months while classified material was in the open? Update: 300 potentially classified e-mails out of 6000?
8/17/2015 12:01:24 PM  Ed Morrissey
I’m tempted to use the Eric “Otter” Stratton explanation from Animal House in response to Joe Scarborough’s question, but that might be somewhat unfair. The FBI didn’t know that Top Secret/compartmented information was out

Just in case you thought Hillary might be indicted, Obama spent the weekend socializing with her and Bill
8/17/2015 11:21:43 AM  Allahpundit
Not just socializing, I should note, but socializing in public, an implicit reminder to the DOJ and intelligence community that Hillary Clinton’s prospects are important to him and his party. When was the last time the subject of an FBI
