Another Self-Inflicted Wound for the GOP

Republican National Committeeman Henry Barbour gave black Americans a slap in the face when he orchestrated a cynical, race-baiting campaign targeting fellow Republican Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Senate primary runoff against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran. 20 Aug 2014

Left Ramps Up 'Lawfare' Against Republicans

Last week, a grand jury in Austin, Texas indicted Governor Rick Perry on two counts of abusing his official office. The charges stem from a public threat Perry made to veto appropriations to a department of the Travis County District Attorney's office after the DA was arrested for drunk driving and displayed hostile behavior to law enforcement personnel. While the case against Perry seems extraordinarily weak, the indictment is the latest indication that the left will use all tools available to pursue its political ends. 20 Aug 2014

Federal Judge Takes Extraordinary Steps in IRS Lawsuit

The order from U.S. District Court Judge Emmett Sullivan was certainly clear enough. In a landmark victory for Judicial Watch, the federal judge ordered the IRS to submit sworn declarations detailing what happened to Lois Lerner’s “lost” emails and what steps were being taken to find them. 20 Aug 2014

Common Core Loses Support Nationwide

Most Americans familiar with the Common Core standards tend to oppose them and, within just one year, polls show more Americans are, in fact, more knowledgeable about the controversial education initiative and against its implementation in schools. 20 Aug 2014

'Knockout Game' Attacker Assaults Three Within 15 Minutes

New Jersey Police are on the look-out for a man who allegedly committed three separate “knockout game” punches within a 15-minute time frame. The victims sustained bruised jaws and bloody faces. The assailant was described by police as a six-foot or taller black man with an athletic build wearing a Brooklyn Nets hat. 20 Aug 2014

Police Arrest 47 in Ferguson Tuesday Night

FERGUSON, Missouri--Missouri law enforcement targeted specific individuals for arrest in last night’s protest in Ferguson. Police arrested 47 protesters after what seemed to be a relatively peaceful night on Wednesday. As glass and plastic bottles began to hurl through the air towards fully geared law enforcement, police moved in. 20 Aug 2014

Reid Building Firewall in MI, IA, CO, & NH

An old rule of politics is to ignore what campaigns say and watch, instead, what they do. Where a campaign devotes its money and resources says more about their view of the landscape than what they say in a press release. According to its recent campaign spending, Sen. Harry Reid's Senate Majority PAC is building a firewall to defend his majority in states which weren't viewed as competitive just a few months ago. It is a sign of the deteriorating climate facing Democrats nationally. 20 Aug 2014

Looting Decimates Small Businesses in Ferguson

FERGUSON, Missouri—It's not easy running a business with riots going on. In the ten days since Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, the small businesses that line the streets have suffered a major financial blow from the constant rioting, vandalism, and looting, owners said. 20 Aug 2014

Poll Finds 'Common Core' Toxic, Teacher Support Plummets

A poll released on Tuesday by pro-Common Core Education Next (EdNext) confirms that support for the Common Core standards has declined in general, and that teacher support for the controversial standards has especially dropped dramatically since last year, with 76 percent of teachers having supported them in 2013 but only 46 percent in favor of them this year. 20 Aug 2014

Most Black Ferguson Residents Complaining of 'White Power Structure' Didn't Vote

After Michael Brown's death, left-wing activists, pundits, and the mainstream press have been blasting and maligning Ferguson's "white power structure," likening the city to a town in the Jim Crow South. They have lamented that though the city is nearly 70% black, "five of Ferguson’s six city council members are white" and "six of the local school board’s seven members are white." Ferguson's mayor, James Knowles, is also white. Even worse to the mainstream press and left-wing activists is that he's a Republican. 19 Aug 2014

We Need Law and Order, Not Sympathy for Rioters

After rioting broke out in the Watts section of Los Angeles in August 1965, concerned Republicans persuaded Ronald Reagan to run for governor on a stern “law and order” platform. The former movie star did exactly that, trouncing California Gov. Pat Brown by 15 percentage points, the biggest prize among the eight governorships that the GOP picked up in 1966. And the Gipper was on his way to the White House. 19 Aug 2014

Three Cheers for Full Disclosure

In the wake of last Saturday’s fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, there have been repeated demands for the release of the name of the police officer who fatally shot the unarmed man. 19 Aug 2014

25 Minutes of Hell

On Aug. 24, 2001, Air Transat Flight 236 ran out of fuel en route from Toronto to Lisbon with 306 passengers aboard. The right engine was leaky, and the crew had performed a delicate fuel imbalance procedure—incorrectly—from memory. Below stretched the Atlantic Ocean for hundreds of miles. As the interior lights flickered and oxygen masks dangled from the ceiling, weeping flight attendants instructed everyone to prepare for a crash landing into the sea. Then the pilot located a small military base in the Azores, and after 25 minutes of hell, the plane touched down—violently, but without badly injuring anyone—to tears and applause. (Also to flames: The wheels were on fire.) 19 Aug 2014

Ferguson: Obama's a Deer In the Headlights - And That's a Good Thing

Obama's clueless divisiveness is now a political liability. 'Looks like my son" and "acted stupidly" have become punchlines -- an easy shorthand to mock a highly partisan president who is in way over his head. The result is that in the wake of society unraveling in Ferguson, The OceanHealer looks unsure, uncomfortable, a little frightened, and incapable of being decisive. That's a good thing. With this president, that's when he's the least dangerous. 19 Aug 2014
