  • Missouri Protestors Bully A Student Photographer and Refuse To Let Him Take Their Pictures

    Bold move demanding your right to privacy while staging a public protest outside. Outside = a public university funded by taxpayers. Outside = a place that literally has a state law on the books saying it is a public space and free speech zone. Like I said, an interesting strategy. It’s also funny because I didn’t hear them complaining about the media coverage when they were using it to get a man fired from his job, and nobody was complaining about pictures being taken when they were spreading the Mizzou Football team picture around the internet like wildfire. Makes you...

    "As revenge for their 'boy' becoming his own man, Mike Murphy intends to destroy Sen. Marco Rubio." Here is something you need to know to this morning - Jeb Bush's Super PAC ads have been terrible. They have not helped Jeb Bush at all. In fact, more Republican primary voters say they would never vote for Jeb Bush than say the same about Donald Trump. Here is something else you should know - Team Bush premised his strategy on keeping Sen. Marco Rubio out of the race. Bush announced early that he intended to run, then stockpiled his Super PAC...

    Voters in Virginia, Texas, Kentucky, Ohio and even California poured cold water Tuesday night on the idea the country has taken a sharp turn to the left, rejecting LGBT protections in Houston, sacking a pro-sanctuary cities sheriff in San Francisco and nixing legal pot in Ohio. Democrats took hits in the off-year election everywhere - from Virginia, where Gov. Terry McAuliffe fell short in an effort to wrest control of the state Senate from Republicans, to Kentucky, where incumbent state Auditor Adam Edelen, considered a potential challenger next year to GOP Sen. Rand Paul, stumbled at the ballot box. Kentucky...
  • Bundled Cable Deathwatch: ESPN To Cut 350 Jobs

    According to Bloomberg, the increasingly left-wing ESPN sports network has been forced to cut 350 jobs due directly to subscriber losses, which is also known as cord cutting. Early estimates were between 200 and 300 job cuts after parent company Disney ordered ESPN to cut $100 million from its 2016 budget. In just over a year, as customers cut their cable cords and move to streaming television services like Netflix, as of August, ESPN had lost a whopping 3.2 million subscribers.

In March, Fiorina was picked by the Republican National Committee to chair a group directed to raise money and get out the vote for this year's elections. Shortly after that move was announced, Fiorina was interviewed by Business Week about her role. "My role is to be the primary advocate for John McCain and for the Republican Party," she said.

    The growing anarchy and stalemate in Syria has brought the country closer to de facto partition, as the overstretched and exhausted army of the president, Bashar al-Assad, retreats in the face of a war of attrition that has sapped its manpower. The regimes military has sought to retain a footprint in far-flung areas of the country, from Deir Ezzor in Syrias eastern desert to Aleppo in the north and Deraa in the south, attempting to consolidate its hold over state institutions and protect its officer corps by retreating in the face of overwhelming offensives and subjecting lost territory to relentless...

    With just a few days remaining before the midterm elections, the Democrats are limping to the finish line. We are in the closing days of the 2014 campaign, and in Democratic campaigns across the country, none of the real issues are being discussed. There is no justification for the Democrats to declare there is peace and prosperity, and certainly none of them are promoting a message of hope and change. The Democrats campaigns have been a series of denials, comical disassociation and outright clumsy lies that will only further alienate voters from the political process. Say what you want to...

    Marijuana legalization advocates in Oregon have launched a $2 million-plus ad campaign starring a 33-year police veteran. The new ad, embedded below, features Pete Tutmark, a former patrol sergeant and sheriffs deputy. Tutmark criticizes what he calls a broken system that diverts resources from important crime-solving to drug arrests and urges his fellow Oregonians to vote yes on measure 91 this fall, which would legalize and regulate recreational marijuana use. Last year in Oregon, there were 13,000 citations and arrests for marijuana, he says in the ad. That takes time, time better spent solving murders, rape cases, finding missing children....

The 52-48 vote to undercut venerable filibuster rules on presidential appointees capped more than a decade of struggle in which presidents of both parties complained about delays in confirming appointees, particularly to the federal courts.

    Oprah and the AtheistsTrent Horn October 23, 2013 | Members of the atheist community are outraged, but not at their usual targets, such as conservative politicians or pastors. Instead, they have set their sights on Oprah Winfrey.This past weekend on her show Super Soul Sunday, Oprah interviewed Diana Nyad, the 64-year-old marathon swimmer, to discuss her amazing feat of swimming from Cuba to Florida in 53 hours. During the course of the interview the following exchange occurred:Nyad: I can stand at the beach’s edge with the most devout Christian, Jew, Buddhist, go on down the line, and weep with the...

    Obamacare is meant to provide health coverage to the millions of Americans who don't have it, but the cruel irony is that millions of other Americans may lose their current health insurance as a result. These "losers" are primarily people who buy their own health insurance rather than have it provided by an employer. Many now find their plans will be canceled because they fail to meet the minimum coverage requirements under Obamacare. These plans offer "bare bones insurance...usually catastrophic care...and beginning Jan. 1 insurance companies will not be allowed to offer these very plans," says Rick Newman, Yahoo Finance...

    Chuck Hagel traveled to Dover Air Force Base on Wednesday for the arrival of the remains of four U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Joining Hagel on the trip from Washington were Army Secretary John McHugh and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno. The remains of every U.S. military member killed overseas are flown to Dover for processing. Family members often attend the arrivals, but high-ranking Pentagon officials usually do not.

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | September 23, 2013 | Matthew Boyle
    A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare. "Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes, a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News. Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Around 11 p.m. Tuesday night, three El Paso County Republicans stood in the dark outside the county GOP headquarters just off Sinton Road reveling in what was the biggest election victories Colorado Republicans have had in a decade. This isnt the best night weve had in a decade, said Jeff Crank. Its the only good election night weve had in a decade. Tuesdays recall victories, ousting two Democratic state lawmakers over their support of tougher gun laws, emboldened the National Rifle Association and gun rights advocates from coast to coast. For the first time in a...

    This has infuriated me since the Republicans took control of the House in 2011, and it infuriates me still, but at least the dynamic that's causing it to happen is becoming more clear. In theory, the Obama/Reid/Pelosi spending machine should have experienced a major check when John Boehner became speaker, because the federal government can't spend a dime of money unless the House authorizes it. Should have changed everything, right? With Republicans in the majority in the House, they would refuse to authorize the Democrats' out-of-control spending and force responsible budgeting. That's why we voted for a Republican majority, right?...

    The Chevy Volt madness continued this week with General Motors announcing that consumers will see a $5,000 decrease in the price of President Obama's favorite green wonder-car. Sales of the Volt have been dismal, with most consumers refusing to be as smitten with the car as the President and the few enthusiastic green ideologues who seemed to believe that spending approximately $20,000 more for a car (over a gas-powered rival) that can save them about $3 a day in gas makes sense. What seems to go unrecognized is the fact that the price cut comes at the expense of GM...
