The Romney Hillary Race: Not Winnable for Republicans

Maybe I am over-interpreting, but it seems like the Weekly Standard is hoping for a Romney Hillary race. If I am right, I don’t think they show they understand much about how races are won. (If that statement seems arrogant on my part, just remember that “their guys” lost in 2008 and 2012, and they are currently trying to breathe life into a two-time presidential failure—the guy that Republicans in 2008 rejected for McCain because McCain was more conservative.) But look at their Read more […]

As Global Warming Falls Apart, the Worshipers of Mother Earth Get More Shrill

The debate over Climate Change is far from over, in fact, the science continues to point in opposite directions. This report by the Weekly Standard, “Climate Cultists,” is yet another potent look at the false crisis being used to promote economic destruction, and tyrannical government power. The IPCC’s latest report rates the confidence of our understanding of clouds and aerosols as “low,” and allows that it is possible that clouds could cancel out most of the warming effect of greenhouse Read more […]

Marco Rubio’s Dilemma: Tyranny At Home Or Tyranny Abroad

It is not a surprise that the Weekly Standard publicized Marco Rubio’s statements about foreign policy. The Weekly Standard is looking for a Republican champion and, if Rubio doesn’t come through, they will be stuck with another Bush. I suppose they could try to recruit Ted Cruz, but I think Cruz’s loyalty to the Constitution makes him an unlikely advocate of empire, even if he is not as vocal on the issues as Rand Paul is known for. Here’s the summary from Mediaite: He pivoted to foreign Read more […]

The Koch Brothers Are Supporting A Democrat Against the Tea Party!

There are Republicans who support the wealthy and Democrats who champion the poor, we are told. Even though the Tea Party is showing that such a portrayal is a lie, it is still widely believed (or many pretend to believe it). Thus, Democratic Senator Mark Pryor writes to raise funds to defend his Senate seat in the next election. Friends, Secretive big-donor Super PAC huddles. Tightening polls. Tom Cotton outraising us in the last quarter.  There’s no doubt that all signs point to a tough Read more […]

The Neocon Interpretation Of The Star-Spangled Banner Is Wrong

The Weekly Standard often has good ideas and good information but it is extremely neo-conservative. That means it is pretty loyal to big government and especially to the idea of America going to war whenever it wants to impose its will over any part of the planet. On Monday Bill Kristol’s editorial was posted on the website. Kristol compared the World-War-I-era anti-war poem, Dulce Et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen to the Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key. He thinks these are two opposed Read more […]

Confirmed: Not Thousands, But Millions Are Losing Their Health Insurance Due To Obamacare

It is somewhat comforting to know that my family has a lot of company. I have seen stories from various states about thousands of people losing their coverage, but since I had already published a post about similar numbers, I didn’t point this out. I’ve been waiting for someone to calculate how many people in the entire US have lost their insurance. The Weekly Standard found it. According to health policy expert Bob Laszewski, roughly 16 million Americans will lose their current plans because Read more […]
