The Davis Campaign Implodes

I haven’t been paying much attention to the Texas gubernatorial race because it’s been clear for a while that Greg Abbott was going to win. Not only is Texas a red state and Abbott clearly qualified, but Davis’ main qualification was filibustering an abortion law, which I didn’t see carrying much water outside of Austin. And, indeed, Abbott has maintained a double digit lead all year.

Enter desperation:

The Right to Die

Brittany Maynard has a few months to live. Or three weeks, if she ends her own life on November 1.

For those of you who can’t or don’t want to watch the video, she has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. There is basically no chance she will live for more than a few months. She has moved to Oregon, which has a law allowing terminally ill people to self-administer drugs to end their own … Read more

The Latest White House Oops

You may remember the scandal, a few years ago, when Secret Service agents and military personnel in the President’s advance security detail in Colombia hired a few prostitutes. While prostitution is legal in Colombia, it was felt that the agents endangered security by their behavior. They were seeing these women and drinking heavily when they should have been preparing for the President’s arrival; they invited them up to their rooms in a security violation; they … Read more

Addendum: They Are Also Coming For Your Kids

As Alex can tell you, the current rulers of Connecticut might be some of the worst in the country. It’s not just their policies; it is their disgusting determination to leverage the horror of the Sandy Hook massacre into advancing any liberal agenda item they can even remotely connect to it:

To wit:

Home-schoolers represent the only authentically radical social movement in the United States (Occupy Wall Street was a fashion statement) and so

Sorry. They *Are* Coming For Our Guns

Whenever conservatives oppose a gun control law, we are mocked in the media for our delusions that “they’re cummin’ for yer guns!” Mother Jones included this in their list of ten gun control myths (that weren’t really myths).

Well ….

Yesterday California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that strips people of their Second Amendment rights based on claims that they pose a danger to themselves or others. Under AB 1014, a cop or “an

We Demand Compromised Security!

A few weeks ago, Apple announced that their new OS encrypts data so that Apple literally can not access it without the user’s permission. Google followed by announcing their new Android OS will do the same thing. This has been done ostensibly to prevent the government from forcing Apple to divulge information stored in someone’s accounts. This might prevent law enforcement from executing a search warrant delivered to the company. It might also, however, block … Read more

Book Review: Iron Curtain

As promised, I am putting in another installment of my very irregular review of movies or books that I think are relevant to politics. In this case, the book is Anne Applebaum’s Iron Curtain, a history of the Stalinist era in Eastern Europe with particular emphasis on Poland, East Germany and Hungary.

Iron Curtain is not as overwhelming as her previous book, Gulag. But it relentless in documenting how the Eastern Bloc and … Read more

Ebola Comes to the US

This is why I agree with the President that we have to devote as many resources as we can to fighting Ebola.

A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, health officials announced Tuesday.

The unidentified man left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Secret Service Swings and Misses

Wow:

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson will face questions about how an armed intruder jumped the White House fence and made it as far as the East Room when she testifies before a House committee on Tuesday.

Sources confirmed to Fox News on Monday that 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez overpowered a Secret Service officer in the Sept. 19 incident — this led to a struggle and “wrestling” inside the executive mansion as he darted through.

Punting Power

This is pure BS:

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told This Week he’d “bring the Congress back” to vote on a new resolution authorizing military force against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, but only if President Barack Obama requested one. Congress has received heaps of criticism for staying out of town during the airstrikes against ISIS, with some suggesting they’re happy to avoid a contentious vote on the issue.

Boehner reprised his line that
