Steve LaTourette, a former congressman and friend of John Boehner, runs the “Republican Main Street Partnership”. Note the word “Republican.” As the left-wing Talking Points Memo reported a month ago, LaTourette and his Main Street Partnership have created an affiliated SuperPAC called “Defending Main Street PAC.” Along with the Chamber of Commerce and Republican Leaders, the Main Street Partnership wants to take out troublesome conservatives. | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Steve Gunderson to discuss the state of higher education in America, onerous new regulations being imposed by the Obama administration and why these new rules could h…
The New York City Department of Investigation recently examined the integrity of the New York City election process. During the 2013 New York City Mayoral Election, they had undercover investigators deliberately attempt to cast fraudulent write-in ballots in the name of 63 legally ineligible voters. The undercover agents of the DOI* were told to write in the name of fictional candidate “John Test.” The votes were tallied on 61 out of 63 deliberately corrupt ballots.
A certain portion of the blogosphere reads about things like the easy voter fraud and therefore describes the current state of American Democracy as being a terminal failure. They go further and suggest we should just spurn the clever ideas of George Washington and admit that KG III had the whole thing right from Jump Street. I personally think the whole Monarchist Movement has truly gone fishing. The various Kennedy Family by-blows are as close as I ever hope to see America come to being ruled by The Spanish Hapsburgs or the declining end of the Romanov Dynasty. As for American Democracy degenerating, I am not as easily able to dismiss the reactionaries. A voter fraud success rate of 97% is not a positive development. In order to prevent this continued negative outcome, the Congress of the United States of America needs to pass a national Voter ID Law.
The United States Chamber of Commerce, already in the tank for amnesty, is now in the tank for Common Core. The Chamber of Commerce will be funding Republican candidates to beat conservatives. The New York Times recently ran an article on the corrupt and entangling alliances within the Mainstreet Partnership. This group of liberal Republicans, funded by an alliance of Wall Street and Labor Unions | Read More »
Can someone explain to me why the government feels the need to target a private company in the press? This reminds me of Russia. This isn’t justice, this is a vindictive Obama administration asserting power for the sake of power. They’re Marxists w…
Dr. Chad Mathis had a good haul in campaign cash last quarter. For those of you who have not heard of him, Dr. Mathis is running in Alabama’s 6th Congressional District. He’s a solid conservative, a doctor, and would be a terrific addition to the United States House of Representatives. Dr. Mathis has gotten early support from the Madison Project and FreedomWorks. I’m glad to | Read More »
Usual caveats: it’s early, it’s one of a bunch of possible outcomes, it’s a Republican pollster (Harper), and so forth. But this is still pretty good news for Republican candidate Terri Lynn Land. And the Republican party in Michigan, because Harper also checked the generic race: On the generic Senate ballot, Democrats actually lead in the same race by just over one point — well | Read More »
Which John Hickenlooper so totally did. Executive summary: Gov. Hickenlooper bragged in his State of the State address that Colorado had gone from 40th in the nation in job creation to 4th. Which is impressive, yes? – Except that Colorado went from 40th in 2010 to 4th in 2012. Also in 2012 was an election where the Colorado state legislature went fully under Democratic control… | Read More »
[*”… in order to get the candidate out of the Kentucky Senate race.” As noted elsewhere, the title was a little clumsy.] Like Jim Geraghty, I don’t expect that this story will go anywhere – Democratic primary in a Democrat-controlled state with a Democrat in the White House to quash an investigation on the federal level and a former Democratic Senate candidate as Attorney General | Read More »
This Washington Post article starts bad for the O’Malley administration… More than a year before Maryland launched its health insurance exchange, senior state officials failed to heed warnings that no one was ultimately accountable for the $170 million project and that the state lacked a plausible plan for how it would be ready by Oct. 1. Over the following months, as political leaders continued to | Read More »
