(Big) Halloween Scare 3.

This is absolutely scary. Really is. About 230 years ago a bunch of colonialists revolted against the mightiest empire on the planet for a heck of a lot less than what we’re potentially going to see another group of tyrants attempt, should they truly be so arrogant. Here’s James Pethokoukis: Eliminate 401(k)’s, IRAs, and other […]

Halloween Scare 2.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.” — Socialist Party of America presidential candidate Norman Thomas. Read the whole thing.

Halloween Scare 1

Here’s Matthew Continetti: Barack Obama’s running mate, Joe the Gaffe Machine, recently predicted that an international crisis will occur sometime during a President Obama’s first year in office. What will it be? Trouble in Iraq? Tension between China and Taiwan? State collapse in North Korea? Crisis in the Straits of Hormuz? War in central Africa? […]

Why the Rashidi tape matters.

UPDATE: Here’s another update by Andy McCarthy, basically saying what everyone else is — the L.A. Times did not adequately cover what Obama said at the Rashidi party even though he spoke for several minutes. McCarthy, by the way, successfully prosecuted Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman (the Blind Shiek) and several more of the 1993 WTC bombers, […]

Harry Porking.

The latest EDA [Economic Development Administration] photo-op shows Sen. Harry Reid presenting a goofy oversized check from the U.S. Treasury (i.e., taxpayers) to some of his Nevada constituents to help build a technology park to be named after (drum roll please)…Sen. Harry Reid. The arrogance is breathtaking, until one remembers that we’re talking about a […]

Media Bias 101.

Here’s Andy McCarthy: Let’s try a thought experiment. Say John McCain attended a party at which known racists and terror mongers were in attendance. Say testimonials were given, including a glowing one by McCain for the benefit of the guest of honor … who happened to be a top apologist for terrorists. Say McCain not […]

Media: We’re biased, but blame McCain!

This is rich. The Politico writers admit their clear and unprofessional reporting bias — against John McCain and in favor of Barack Obama — but you see, it’s all McCain’s fault! OK, let’s just get this over with: Yes, in the closing weeks of this election, John McCain and Sarah Palin are getting hosed in […]

Hey Clintonites: Buyer Beware.

Sure, I’ll agree that there’s something to be said for rhetorical lawyer talk or academicspeak, which Barack Obama’s defenders are saying this 2001 interview was. But this is hardly the sole case where Obama seems to be promoting European socialism. Obama is not a fiscally moderate Bill Clinton. He’s not even fiscal leftist like Hillary […]

Obama won’t define “rich.”

This shouldn’t surprise anyone… [Byron York] One of the things I’ve seen at Republican rallies is that people just don’t believe Barack Obama when he says he’ll raise taxes only on those who make more than $250,000 a year.  It’s not that these people make that much money or even think they’ll make that much […]

Reporter questions, Biden pouts (and lies).

What double standard? Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden comes off a little defensive during some aggressive questioning by WFTV reporter Barbara West. Her points — that Barack Obama seems entirely comfortable mimicking European socialist tax policies, that he’s tied closely to ACORN, and that Biden himself is calling Obama inexperienced — were entirely valid. There […]
