The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

ISIS in the Ivy League?

When last we checked in on Cornell University, they were being sued for expelling a senior chemistry major whose female friend complained that she was too drunk to consent to their sleepover hookup. Punishing drunk college kids for doing what drunk college kids do may seem rather extreme, but nothing is too extreme for some […]

You Had Me at ‘Mariel Hemingway’

When I learned that Mariel Hemingway was among the celebrities caught in James O’Keefe’s latest video sting, politics briefly disappeared into a sort of fog of nostalgic imagination: Mariel Hemingway! Oh, that was a name to conjure with, back in the day! It wasn’t just her striking beauty, although Mariel’s face seemed as if it […]

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

John Fund at National Review: James O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got NPR’s president fired, is back. This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the […]

Why Doesn’t President Obama Support ‘Citizens Against Senseless Violence’?

New York Times headline today: Obama Poised to Back Comprehensive Plan to Curb Gun Violence If he’s against “gun violence,” why would his attorney general call the cops on a peaceful group promoting its own “comprehensive plan”?

Disaster is now coming at Democrats from multiple unexpected directions. Yesterday, Bob Belvedere observed that “James O’Keefe and his Mission: Impossible crew have done it […]

Obama Official on Vote-Fraud Scheme: ‘This Is So Funny. It’s Cool Though.’

What if you’re registered to vote in a swing state, but you’ve moved to a state that’s not in play for the presidential election? No problem, according to Stephanie Caballero, a DNC employee who is also a regional field director in Texas for Obama’s Organizing For  America: “So I spent some time in Florida, and I got my voter […]

‘Someone Trying to Breathe Life into a Three-Year Old Dead Horse’

Thus does John Fund dismiss an attempt by Nadia Naffe to create controversy around James O’Keefe III over a planned “sting” video that never happened, as embarrassing as the details may be. O’Keefe, as you certainly know, is the young activist who became famous for his collaboration with Hannah Giles in the 2009 undercover videos […]

#SGS12 Hey, Wait a Minute: James O’Keefe Is Smart, But Not a Girl

So how is it that James O’Keefe got invited to speak at Smart Girls Summit this weekend? And as I look down the list of wonderful speakers, I see many other of my friends, including Brandon Darby and Ben Domenech — both are smart, but neither of them is a girl. Ann Marie Buerkle, Dana Loesch, […]
