NYC might solve expensive, mandated scaffolding problem with more expensive mandates
8/31/2015 10:01:07 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
New York City is covered with sidewalk shed— those gross, dark, often shoddily built overhangs meant to shield pedestrians from the dangers of construction sites and falling facades. The sheds are meant to protect, but they can also harbor their own

"Fear the Walking Dead" grumble thread: Zombie lives matter
8/31/2015 8:41:11 PM  Allahpundit
It’s rare that I disagree with Lileks, but let’s face facts: The teenagers are not the weak link on this show. The 1st part of "Fear the Walking Dead" ep2 is really scratching that itch I had to see a teen-focused zombie

8/31/2015 8:01:43 PM  Allahpundit
The latest batch of e-mails, 7,000 pages in all, is going live on the State Department website at the unusual hour of 9 p.m. ET, which certainly isn’t an attempt to bury this info later in the evening when most Americans aren’t paying

Federal judge: Moral objections enough to override HHS contraception mandate
8/31/2015 7:21:55 PM  Ed Morrissey

"I'll put them in camps": Rand Paul mocks GOP field for hardline rhetoric towards illegals
8/31/2015 6:01:39 PM  Allahpundit
A nice catch by Sam Stein of HuffPo from Rand’s interview with Boston Herald Radio. Skip to around 11:00 for the key bit. I … did not expect a competition between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul over who could conjure up a better Nazi allusion

Does Deputy Goforth's alleged murderer have an alibi?
8/31/2015 5:21:55 PM  Jazz Shaw
The horror show in Texas seems to have settled back down to the building of memorials and a period of mourning in the community following the assassination of Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth. After too many tense hours of wondering while many of

Alcee Hastings: Instead of signing Iran deal, let's give Israel bunker-buster bombs
8/31/2015 4:41:03 PM  Ed Morrissey
The White House had better mark Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings as a firm “no” on the Iran deal. In a lengthy speech to Nova University in Davie, Florida at an AIPAC event, the liberal Democrat blasted Barack Obama and John Kerry for cutting a

8/31/2015 4:01:45 PM  Jazz Shaw

New Trump ad: When Jeb Bush talks about an "act of love," does he mean illegals murdering Americans?
8/31/2015 3:21:22 PM  Allahpundit
Via William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, who calls this “Willie Horton part two.” Trump clearly does mean to imply that murder is what Bush has in mind when he talks about “acts of love,” which of course is false. The

Scarborough: Cable news has put lives at risk, including MSNBC, for "a few ratings points"
8/31/2015 2:41:56 PM  Ed Morrissey

Judge to IRS: turn over the White House email information
8/31/2015 2:01:06 PM  Jazz Shaw
Man, the IRS just can’t catch a break, can it? Some days I actually start to feel bad for them. (Okay… that was a lie, but I reflexively want to say it for some reason.) One aspect of the Lois Lerner fiasco which has gotten slightly less

Steve Schmidt: Let's face it, Trump is "emasculating" Jeb Bush
8/31/2015 1:21:35 PM  Allahpundit
The best description I’ve read of Jeb’s mien on the trail came from Rich Lowry, who said “he looks and sounds like a sensitive dad from a contemporary sitcom.” Right? I imagine him walking offstage after a speech and crossing

8/31/2015 12:41:23 PM  Jazz Shaw
Last week Ed talked about the large, looming spikes in health insurance premiums which are coming our way. For anyone who has been paying attention since roughly 2008 this really shouldn’t be any sort of surprise. We had plenty of warning from

8/31/2015 12:01:17 PM  Ed Morrissey

No confidence: Public opposes Iran deal, 25/55, believes it will make world less safe, 28/56
8/31/2015 11:21:05 AM  Allahpundit
Lucky for Obama that we don’t live in a country where voters care about foreign policy or else this might matter. The only demographic group that supports this grand sellout is O’s own party and they’re conspicuously tepid in backing it
