NBC’s Maria Shriver Raves About How Abortion Barbie ‘Became a Star’

Erick Erickson dubbed Texas Democrat state Sen. Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie” last year when she filibustered a bill to reduce the legal window for abortion from 24 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Stop and think about that for a minute: 24 weeks is nearly six months. Even if you are an advocate of “a woman’s […]

Holiday Tradition, Texas-Style

Marcos Berrios was doing “mechanical work” in the backyard of his Conroe, Texas, home. On the front porch, he had a bunch of fireworks for the family’s New Year’s Eve celebration, and his 10-year-old daughter decided to start celebrating early by shooting roman candles. And so in years to come, whenever the Berrios family gathers […]

‘Emerging Awareness’ Update: Remember the Texas Polygamy Teen Sex Cult?

You have perhaps forgotten the 2008 “underage sex cult” case in which Texas authorities seized 416 children at the Laredo compound of the polygamist Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Facts I noted at the time were that (a) Texas led the nation in teen pregnacy, and (b) in 2005 Texas raised […]

The #TexasWomenForever Baby-Killer Democrat Online Fund-Raising Flop

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Team Exposes Fraud of ObamaCare ‘Navigators’

This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the […]

Police: Texas High School Girl Pimped Out Her Friends as Young as 14

Soon to be an A&E series called “Breaking Bad Girls”? Authorities have charged a League City student with soliciting her “easily manipulated” friends into prostitution. The girls performed sexual acts on a 62-year-old business owner from Friendswood, police said. Webster police charged Chelsey Elizabeth Taylor, 17, with one felony count of compelling prostitution in connection […]

Victimhood as Merit: Wendy Davis Claimed ‘Mental Health’ Issues in Lawsuit

Glenn Close in ‘Fatal Attraction’: Crazier than Wendy Davis? Perhaps. In 1996, Wendy Davis lost a city council election in Fort Worth, Texas, and filed an utterly ridiculous lawsuit claiming she had been defamed by the local newspaper. (Trust me on this: I’ve recently become an expert on utterly ridiculous defamation lawsuits.) One of the […]

@TedCruz At Heritage On Bond v. U.S.; Slate‘s Eric Posner Hardest Hit

by Smitty Ted buzzes Heritage to talk about Bond v. United States, and manages to piledrive Eric Posner’s shrill objections: Cruz is a treasure. He offers simple, lucid arguments. Cruz says more cogent, intellectually stimulating things in 43 minutes of video than #OccupyResoluteDesk has offered in 5 miserable years. I want to see Ted Cruz […]
