Quotes of the day
8/18/2015 10:41:38 PM  Allahpundit
The ideas once languished at the edge of Republican politics, confined to think tanks and no-hope bills on Capitol Hill. To solve the problem of illegal immigration, truly drastic measures were necessary: Deport the undocumented en masse. Seize the money

Mark Cuban informs Hillary her college tuition plan won't work. Because economics.
8/18/2015 10:01:57 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
He could probably also offer her some pointers on tech jargon as well. Or, the proper cloth for wiping data. But on this subject, Cuban essentially says, It’s the bubble, stupid. "[Hillary's plan] stands a better chance of increasing the amount of

Update: Is that White House aide charged with shooting her police boyfriend a household name yet?
8/18/2015 9:21:19 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Last week, Barvetta Singletary was arrested and charged with shooting at her Capitol Hill Police boyfriend with his service weapon in a domestic dispute. Her boyfriend was uninjured, thank goodness, and fled the home where she had allegedly lured him

Union official busted for taking bribes from pot dispensaries
8/18/2015 8:41:15 PM  Jazz Shaw
More news to show that your friendly, neighborhood union representative is on the side of the people. And if they can score some free cash and a few bags of weed on the side, who among us should really cast stones? One representative of the of the United

Dem Sen. Bob Menendez rips the Iran deal: "Hope" is not a national security strategy
8/18/2015 8:01:05 PM  Allahpundit
Via the Free Beacon, enjoy five minutes of the most hawkish Democrat in Congress living up to his billing. Unlike Chuck Schumer, Menendez doesn’t need to play nice in voicing his criticism of the deal. He’s not the incoming minority leader

New EPA regs to slash emissions which energy industry already slashed
8/18/2015 7:21:05 PM  Jazz Shaw
By the phone and the pen. We should once again offer a tip of the hat to Barack Obama for not going gently into that good night as a lame duck. He’s still in the batter’s box trying to build his legacy on climate change with a fresh raft of

Todd: Three letters that changed the Hillary server saga — F, B, I
8/18/2015 6:41:09 PM  Ed Morrissey
Whatever Hillary Clinton is selling, the panel on Morning Joe ain’t buying. The presumed Democratic frontrunner tried turning the Saga of the Secret Server into a joke this weekend, and then made it part of the Hillary fantasy of the vast

Trump: Foreigners who attend U.S. schools and want to stay should be allowed to
8/18/2015 6:01:19 PM  Allahpundit
In case you think Trump’s just making up his immigration platform as he goes along … yeah, that seems quite possible, actually. When foreigners attend our great colleges & want to stay in the U.S., they should not be thrown out of our

Oh yes: Sources tell NBC that FBI is optimistic it can recover data from Hillary's wiped server; Update: Hillary dodges when asked if server was wiped
8/18/2015 5:21:32 PM  Allahpundit
Who do you think is more likely to cry when Hillary is finally arrested, her or Bill? Right. Bill. The FBI may be able to recover at least some data from Hillary Clinton’s private email server even though there was an attempt to wipe it, two

Did the Iranians threaten IAEA director with personal harm to prevent side-deal disclosures?
8/18/2015 4:41:29 PM  Ed Morrissey
Normally, one might write this off as a rumor spread by opponents of the nuclear agreement with Iran, an attempt to remind people of the folly of dealing with a gangster government. Normally, that is, except the source for this story comes from the

Brutal: Jeb Bush sinks to 35/57 favorable rating among registered voters in new CNN poll
8/18/2015 4:01:24 PM  Allahpundit
Jazz already covered the topline data in this poll this morning but I want to follow Rich Lowry’s lead here and highlight Jeb’s numbers in particular. Because I’m a pessimist by nature and because I lived through elections 2008 and

Islamic environmentalists call for end to fossil fuels. Wait… what?
8/18/2015 3:21:54 PM  Jazz Shaw
Breaking news: Islamic environmental and religious leaders have issued an Islamic Climate Declaration which calls on all nations to save the planet by abandoning all use of fossil fuels by 2050 and switching to “sustainable energy” by that

Tuesday #TEMS: #Gamergate, #SPJAirplay with Ashe Schow, Andrew Malcolm, Peter Schaumber
8/18/2015 2:41:08 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! Andrew Malcolm joins us for Tuesdays with Andrew! The Prince of Twitter and I will discuss all of the hot political stories of the day. The Washington

Here we go: Marco Rubio opposes repeal of birthright citizenship, contra Trump
8/18/2015 2:01:24 PM  Allahpundit
Where do we stand right now on this comparatively minor yet increasingly litmus-test-y immigration issue? By my count we’ve got Trump, Scott Walker, and Bobby Jindal all on record in the past 48 hours saying they’d end birthright citizenship

What, if anything, can be done about illegal drone activity?
8/18/2015 1:21:54 PM  Jazz Shaw
I’m not sure if there’s just more of this going on or if the media is simply paying more attention, but by now you’ve probably seen all of the Killer Drone stories making the rounds. There were multiple instances of drones buzzing

Dems start to face reality: Hillary is a terrible candidate
8/18/2015 12:41:27 PM  Ed Morrissey
We’ve been pointing that out for months, but Democrats can be forgiven for not taking our word for it. They may not be forgiven for putting all of their eggs in Hillary Clinton’s basket, though, after months of watching the presumed nominee

Grassley would like to know if, how, when, why Hillary's attorney got a security clearance
8/18/2015 12:01:09 PM  Jazz Shaw
Have we officially reached Hillary email burnout level yet? I would say that this story “keeps getting worse” but that’s pretty much like predicting rain in Seattle. Virtually everything which the former Secretary of State has told us

Revealed: IT company that housed Hillary's server was a "mom and pop" business, likely hired through political connections
8/18/2015 11:21:09 AM  Allahpundit
A nifty piece from the Daily Mail. You would think a cabinet member who had every reason to assume that classified information would be circulating on her server would insist on a company renowned for security. Instead she went with a small outfit in
