But Will They Listen?

by baldilocks Public Tells House Dems — Don't Waste Time Investigating Trump: IBD/TIPP Poll The public wants the new Congress to focus on three areas when it convenes next year: health care costs, immigration, and jobs.

Forward to Detroit: Prominent Chicago mayoral candidate suggests a commuter tax

By John Ruberry Democrats, particularly Chicago Democrats, love political dynasties. Before Mayor Carter Harrison Jr. there was Carter Harrison. Before Richard M. Daley there was Mayor Richard J.

It’s No Mystery , It’s Still the Tom Hagen Math (and Business)

Tom Hagen: Right now we have the unions and we have the gambling and those are the best things to have. But narcotics is a thing of the future. If we don’t get a piece of that action we risk everything we have. Not now, but ten years from now. The Godfather 1972 I've been seeing … Continue reading It’s No Mystery , It’s Still the Tom Hagen Math (and Business)

Downballot, Some Life-Issue News

I arrive at DTG Blog sheepishly, behind schedule, having been entirely too wrapped up in my own state's election (424 legislative seats, for starters). As I look at results past the state line, I see that voters in West Virginia and Alabama passed pro-life ballot measures that are essential but shouldn't have been needed. The … Continue reading Downballot, Some Life-Issue News

Florida Woman

Yeah, I'm from California. So what? by baldilocks Call me paranoid, but I think things like this are intentional. MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Monday claimed Florida's Broward County election supervisor Brenda Snipes is a Republican, despite the fact she is a Democrat. "We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is … Continue reading Florida Woman

To survive the Illinois GOP must be the anti-tax hike party

By John Ruberry While there is some debate on whether there was a blue wave nationally after last week's midterm elections,, in Illinois, my state, there certainly was one. Voters booted out a Republican governor, billionaire Bruce Rauner, for Democratic billionaire JB Pritzker.

Will House Democrats “Kavanaugh” themselves?

Yesterday I wrote this about the Democrats and the house: lot of crazies managed to win in deep blue states meaning that the left will be dying to go full pussy hat while Pelosi tries to make sure her caucus doesn't have a Kavanaugh moment that so disgusts voters that those 30 districts she flipped go … Continue reading Will House Democrats “Kavanaugh” themselves?

Election Day A Celebration of The Right to (Maybe) Get it Wrong

Today is election day, a day which is, as far as I'm concerned, the closest thing the secular world has to a Catholic holy day of obligation. I know that rise in early voting makes that attitude moot to some degree but for me, election day remains sacred. These days part of it is sentimental, … Continue reading Election Day A Celebration of The Right to (Maybe) Get it Wrong

Stacy McCain on the Road Again, Hit his Tip Jar

One of the drawbacks of depending on a regular full time job for income and hosting the Catholic Radio show Your Prayer Intentions (incidentally the event Saturday went very well) is that the flexibility I once had to just go off and do a road trip to cover congressional elections is pretty much gone for … Continue reading Stacy McCain on the Road Again, Hit his Tip Jar

IL 14: Has Democrat Lauren Underwood ever worked as a nurse?

Why Trump is President and Romney Isn’t

The former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney gave a perfect illustration of the difference between him and Donald Trump this weekend.

Three More Days

by baldilocks The great Walter E. Williams reminds us of how our system of government works -- or, at least, how it's supposed to work. Democrats are hoping the coming election will give them a majority in the House of Representatives. Republicans and much of our nation dread that prospect. My question is: What would … Continue reading Three More Days

#GrabThemByTheBallot: Libs drop trou . . . again

Lady Godiva rode her horse through town in the buff some 800 years ago, and ever since, exhibitionist women have been taking it off for a cause, even when no one is going to name a brand of chocolates after them. The latest are the #GrabThemByTheBallot women, who I suppose mean to attract Pres. Trump's … Continue reading #GrabThemByTheBallot: Libs drop trou . . . again

Will a defeated left turn to Violence & Civil War? Only if they’re stupider than I think

Bring it on Andrew Breitbart Last week I wrote that For the Left November 6th 2018 is going to make November 8th 2016 Look like a Mild Disappointment   Think about it.

For the Left November 6th 2018 is going to make November 8th 2016 Look like a Mild Disappointment

As far back as January of this year I've been writing that I can't wait for election day because I've believed that the left's assertion that a big blue wave was coming was pretty much smoke and mirrors, noted the differences between the red wave of 2010 and the supposed blue wave of 2018 and … Continue reading For the Left November 6th 2018 is going to make November 8th 2016 Look like a Mild Disappointment

A collection of stories of leftist attacks on prominent Republicans

By John Ruberry Here's a reminder that we've moved beyond spirited debate within our political culture into rudeness and thuggery. Take a look at the selection of stories about that descent towards anarchy.

The Kavanaugh Awakining of NeverTrump

“Mr. President, if we understand you correctly, you think that we of the Confederacy have committed treason; that we are traitors to your government, that we have forfeited our rights and are proper subjects for the hangman. Is that not about what your words imply?” There was a pause while they waited for Lincoln’s answer, … Continue reading The Kavanaugh Awakining of NeverTrump

Hysterical Females Are Deadly

by baldilocks Chicks on the Right blog documents one of the most pathetic public displays within memory. As new Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being sworn into the Supreme Court, there were protesters outside, pounding on the Supreme Court doors. MSM media covered that they were pounding on the doors. But they didn’t actually cover how … Continue reading Hysterical Females Are Deadly

The Financial Motivation Behind the Kavanaugh Opposition

It's no secret that the Left's by-any-means-necessary (a.k.a unhinged-take-no-prisoners-search-and-destroy) opposition to now-Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation is their pathological fear that he will provide the 5th vote on the SCOTUS to overturn the abominable (and abominably-reasoned) Roe v. Wade decision. It may very well be that this subject falls within the 7% of cases on which Justice Kavanaugh … Continue reading The Financial Motivation Behind the Kavanaugh Opposition

Remember: None of the Kavanaugh Accusers Were Expecting to be Scrutinized

Ulrich’s discovery of guts is cause for organization wide concern Daredevil Comics Born Again 1986 One of the most interesting things about the collapse of the left's case against Brett Kavanaugh is how the media left's message has gone from Brett Kavanaugh was a serial rapist/molester in high school/college! to Brett Kavanaugh was a serial … Continue reading Remember: None of the Kavanaugh Accusers Were Expecting to be Scrutinized
