The Left’s Endless and Unfair War on Scott Walker

October 25, 2014

Walker has been a great governor for Wisconsin but he made the mistake of proving that public employee unions are an arm of the Democratic Party so he’s public enemy #1 to many on the left.

He managed to get re-elected with more votes in a recall election, so you know he’s doing something right.

Consider this: The left hates him so much that they used the power of government to launch a completely bogus “John Doe Investigation” in which they terrorized private Walker supporters…

George F. Will: The nastiest political tactic this year

The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.

Some raids were precursors of, others were parts of, the nastiest episode of this unlovely political season, an episode that has occurred in an unlikely place. This attempted criminalization of politics to silence people occupying just one portion of the political spectrum has happened in Wisconsin, which often has conducted robust political arguments with Midwestern civility.

If this had happened under Bush, the left might have called it fascism.

And by might, I mean would.

MUSIC BREAK – PORTISHEAD

An outstanding and underrated band from the 90’s. I believe the genre is called Trip Hop.

Here are three songs…

This might be the ultimate Freudian slip….

NC Democrat Refers to Republican Nikki Haley as a Whore

October 25, 2014

Don’t expect the liberal media cavalry to come charging over the hill about this. Insults made by liberals about conservative women don’t count.

Only Republicans can be found guilty in the supposed War on Women and if NC Senator Vincent Shaheen was a Republican, not only would the media force him to publicly apologize, his words would be indisputable proof that all Republicans are sexist pigs.

John Nolte of Breitbart…

Nikki Haley’s Dem Opponent: ‘Escort Whore Out the Door!’

While giving a get-out-the-vote speech at a Florence, South Carolina political event, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Vincent Shaheen, told cheering fans of his opponent, sitting Republican governor Nikki Haley, “We are going to escort whore out the door.” He then seemed to correct himself by exchanging the word “whore” with “her” while sharing knowing smiles and laughs with the Democrat crowd.

Shaheen lost to Haley in 2010. In their current rematch, the Real Clear Politics poll of polls has Haley ahead by more than 15 points.

The Week in Review at College Insurrection

October 25, 2014

It was Inconvenient Truths Week at College Insurrection.

Cross posted at Legal Insurrection…

This week’s course from Prager University was particularly enlightening.

Here’s another inconvenient truth. Higher ed isn’t immune to Ebola.

George Will is still controversial for some reason.

Dinesh D’Souza too.

Because you know, we wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

Politics in higher education.

Oh, those crazy professors…

Religious studies update.

And now, the news in sports.

What I learned in college.

Rape culture.

And finally, leftism gone wild.

Nosferatu – The First Dracula Film

Released in 1922, Nosferatu was the first movie interpretation of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula.

It’s a silent film but the imagery is truly terrifying.

Shocker: Valerie Jarrett Played Key Role in Fast and Furious Cover Up

October 24, 2014

Everyone put on your shocked face.

The government watchdog site Judicial Watch reported…

Valerie Jarrett Key Player in Fast and Furious Cover-Up After Holder Lied to Congress

President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch.

The information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “Vaughn index” detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. JW had to sue the agency for the records after the Obama administration failed to provide them under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). A federal court ordered the DOJ to provide the records over the agency’s objections. Yesterday JW reported on the broad information in the records, including that Obama asserted executive privilege for Holder’s wife as part of the administration’s efforts to cover up the scandal.

Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) ran the once-secret program that allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

There’s so much more.

There are some people who believe Valerie Jarrett is running the whole show at the Obama White House.

You know, like liberals did with Karl Rove.

Krauthammer Strikes Again…

October 24, 2014

You know that habit Obama has of pretending he’s a Washington outsider when things go bad?

Charles Krauthammer’s new column nails it…

Barack Obama, bewildered bystander

The president is upset. Very upset. Frustrated and angry. Seething about the government’s handling of Ebola, said the front-page headline in the New York Times last Saturday.

There’s only one problem with this pose, so obligingly transcribed for him by the Times. It’s his government. He’s president. Has been for six years. Yet Barack Obama reflexively insists on playing the shocked outsider when something goes wrong within his own administration.

The IRS? “It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” he thundered in May 2013 when the story broke of the agency targeting conservative groups. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS.”

Except that within nine months, Obama had grown far more tolerant, retroactively declaring this to be a phony scandal without “a smidgen of corruption.”

CNN’s Carol Costello Learned Nothing From The Firing of Martin Bashir

October 23, 2014

Remember when Martin Bashir “resigned” from MSNBC for saying someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth?

CNN’s Carol Costello doesn’t…

CNN’s Carol Costello apologizes for Palin remarks

CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin.

“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize,” Costello said in a statement to POLITICO.

On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, “This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.”

In the tape, Palin is heard describing what happened to her after she confronted someone she accused of pushing her sister.

To borrow one of Obama’s favorite phrases, let me be clear…

CNN’s Carol Costello thought it was just a laugh riot that Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol was physically assaulted by an unknown man at a party.

When she introduced the recording of the 911 call she actually said “Sit back and enjoy.”

Kudos to Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller for noting the hypocrisy.

CNN should fire Carol Costello for this.

If they don’t, they’ll be sending a clear message that it’s perfectly fine to laugh about an assault on Chelsea Clinton or one of Obama’s daughters.

The left can hate Sarah Palin all they want but when they’re caught using their influence in media to perpetuate violence against women they don’t like and laughing about it, they need to be held responsible for their actions.

The left’s suggestion that conservatives are waging a war on women is a steaming pile of horse shit.

Look no further than their own words for proof.
