Confession: I Want A Cruz Administration As Much For Prosperity As For Relentless Waves Of Butthurt From M.B. Dougherty

by Smitty The anticipatory agony from Michael B. Dougherty is schadenfreude-licious: Cruz also exhorted his audience to “imagine” many things, an America that is “finally becoming energy self-sufficient,” “booming economic growth,” “young people coming out of school with four, five, six job offers,” and the eradication of the IRS. He implored us to imagine a […]

Question To #OccupyResoluteDesk Next Time His Piehole’s Open Near A Reporter

by Smitty The no-talent rodeo clown hath spoken: Netanyahu’s comments ‘erode the name of democracy’. OK, it’s not clear what that means. It’s still ‘democracy’, and not ‘emocracy’ or ‘democrac’. Because if we’re going to hammer Bibi for saying something stupid, e.g.: Following Netanyahu’s pre-election statement that there would be no Palestinian state if he […]

Netanyahu Wins, Obama Loses

It was profoundly weird to watch coverage of the Israeli elections Tuesday. At one point, I saw CNN’s John King doing exit poll results as if this was a U.S. presidential election and I was like, “What the hell is this?” What it was, of course, is that American Democrats (including members of President Obama’s […]

Let Us Enjoy A Moment When We’ve Something Nice To Say Of Stacy’s Cousin

by Smitty It’s not often that I can give a thumbs up to fellow IFNAG and Senator John McCain, but signing Senator Cotton’s letter was the Right Thing To Do. Vox is about as clueful on this point as they were on Her Majesty’s email. McCain told Politico that: “I saw the letter, I saw […]

Issa: Her Majesty & #OccupyResoluteDesk Are Both Beyond Justice & They Know It

by Smitty Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Sunday suggested that Hillary Clinton could face criminal charges if she knowingly withholds emails from congressional investigators. Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Issa noted that “voluntary cooperation does not guarantee that it’s a crime not to deliver all” requested emails. Setting up your own security is […]

The United Hates of America

We’re more than six years into the Obama Age — “Hope! Change!” — and everybody hates everybody now: The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted Tuesday to remove all flags, including American flags, from an inclusive space on campus because of their offensive nature. The bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology […]

Her Majesty’s Petard Getting Kinda Hoist-y Over This EmailGate Scandal

by Smitty Hot Air and Rick Wilson need to talk to some security professionals (not that I’m claiming to be such) emphasis mine: This isn’t how it is supposed to be. The public’s interest in the scandal involving revelations that Hillary Clinton eschewed the use of a secure email address while serving as secretary of […]

All Dates Are Morally Equivalent; Questions Are Raaaaacist: Shut Up

by Smitty This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February. A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction against […]
