Photoshop credit: George at Elegant Memories The statistical gurus at financial blog Zero Hedge have taken a hard, long look at the question of Dealergate and cronyism. They’ve made their preliminary findings available here. Using regression analysis, they tackled the relationship between dealership survival and Clinton donor status – and found a significant correlation: This […]
I wrote earlier this month about the need for the Right to counter the huge Obamacare push by the big government alliance. Resistance has to happen on the ground, on the airwaves, and in the halls of Congress. ACORN, the SEIU, and the rest of the liberal grass-roots network are organized and committed to helping […]
“You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.”
So, the president is going to tell us who his computer security czar soon. Let’s hope it’s not the same person who ran the Obama campaign’s grossly insecure online credit card donation operations.
(Photo source: 2008 ACORN slideshow presentation) They thought it would go away. They were wrong. Obama and the Left thought ACORN’s scandalous racket was a dead issue. But whistleblowers, investigative bloggers, and talk radio continue to press for transparency and taxpayer accountability. Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King has renewed efforts for congressional hearings into the […]
A reporter is seeing red after being dragged away from The One. Energy Secretary Chu is seeing white roofs as Earth’s salvation. Nancy Pelosi is seeing green rules invading every aspect of your lives. Weird, creepy times. This wasn’t on the O-teleprompter. Was it, Joe?
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Here are just a few of the exchanges between NYTimes reporter Stephanie Strom and ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief last summer and fall over the increasingly obvious links between ACORN, Project Vote, and the Obama campaign. (Both Strom and MonCrief used pseudonymous e-mail addresses while communicating). It was my blog post on […]
Longtime readers are familiar with my friends at The Jawa Report, the indispensable anti-jihad blog that has busted countless traitors and terror enablers on the web. The Jawa Report founder and editor-in-chief, who blogs pseudonymously as Rusty Shackleford, received yet another a Muslim death threat by online anti-Semites who have threatened him before. I got […]
I talked about Dealergate on Fox and Friends this morning. Will try and get the video clip up later today. I made sure to credit bloggers Doug Ross and Joey Smith, who took the lead in probing the relationship between political considerations and Chrysler dealerships targeted for closure, also Hot Air, which is where the […]
“Special Nurse:” $350,000+ Municipal railway manager: $325,000+ “Administrative services” department head: $280,000+ And no, the figures do not include pensions and benefits. And they want you to bail them out? Please.
Photoshop credit: George at Elegant Memories Bloggers are doing excellent work digging into the Chrysler dealership closure list. Yesterday, I cautioned against making sweeping claims that all the dealerships targeted for closure were partisan victims. On the flip side, bloggers are examining the protected dealerships that were spared by the Obama administration. Joey Smith reports: […]

Please pick up the red courtesy phone (Photoshop credit: Redhotphones.com) Joe Biden said our unseasoned Dear Leader would soon be tested. The time is here and now. North Korea tonight has abandoned a 1953 ceasefire and is preparing the peninsula for war in the wake of South Korea’s decision to side with an anti-proliferation coalition […]
Another North Korean missile launch… North Korea launched another missile into the Sea of Japan early Wednesday, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported, citing an official at Seoul’s presidential office. The action marked the third straight day the nation has tested missiles and came as members of the U.N. Security Council met to discuss a […]
Three items for you: * John Ruberry tracks the latest Blago-gate revelations concerning a Burris-Blago brother wiretap first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times. More from WaPo and NYTimes. * The Associated Press reports that Rahm-bo and Blago traded phone calls over a $2 million state school grant. No word on the F-bomb count. Birds of […]
Photoshop credit: George at Elegant Memories There have been several interesting and informative blog posts published recently on the Chrysler dealership closure “hit list.” Posts by Joey Smith, Doug Ross, and on Free Republic shed light on the campaign contributions of the targeted dealers — who happen to lean Republican. Is Obama capable of such […]
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Joe Garofoli is providing a helpful public service for angry, anti-Prop. 8 demonstrators looking for companionship. He’s just published hook-up instructions from “progressive techies” on how to locate the nearest protest (hat tip: JWF): For those not in San Francisco or LA to celebrate/mourn Tuesday’s Prop 8 ruling, the progressive techies […]
They’ll be back.
On Fox News Channel this morning, Sen. Claire McCaskill dutifully read her “compelling personal story” talking points and hyped Sonia Sotomayor’s compelling personal background while whitewashing her legal record. (RCP Video has the clip here.) Incredibly, McCaskill was not aware that Sotomayor had said “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness […]
So, it’s Sonia Sotomayor. Identity politics triumphs. Here’s the bio/record info I shared at the beginning of the month: “Judge Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court would be very concerning given her hard-left record on the Court of Appeals, where she is recognized by practitioners as one of the more liberal judges. -Judge Sotomayor’s personal […]
Hope you are well-rested from the Memorial Day weekend. Lots on the docket — literally. Obama’s SCOTUS pick is widely rumored to be revealed sometime this week: In a C-SPAN interview that aired this weekend, Obama said he hoped for hearings on his eventual nominee in July, followed by a final confirmation vote before Congress […]
