QOTD: "The RNC/GOPe will never give up on the original objective, elect Jeb Bush. In order to clear the field, the first priority is to remove the threat of Donald Trump. Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina are the tools they are using to try and deliver this outcome.

If/when this approach succeeds, it then becomes a simple matter to seed the media machine with opposition research that will remove Rubio and Fiorina from consideration. The planned natural attrition then brings Jeb back into the race.

This is a similar process, carried out by the same people, which aided Mitt Romney to this outcome in 2012. Unfortunately for the RNC/GOPe, in this election cycle, the vast majority of the electorate is well aware of the formula." --The Last Refuge

Boehner Readies Final Surrender As Debt Ceiling Debacle Looms

By Stephen Gleason

It’s campaign season, and that means non-stop media coverage of candidate polls, quips, gaffes, tweets, emails, controversies, lies, and scandals. It all makes for a good soap opera. Unfortunately, it’s almost all irrelevant in the big picture.

The media prefer to focus on the sideshow rather than the 800-pound gorilla in the room: the looming debt crisis. Nothing that comes out of a pundit’s mouth or a Hillary Clinton email will close the $210 trillion long-term fiscal gap the U.S. now faces.

More immediately, Congress faces a likely debt ceiling debacle in the next few weeks.

For those who doubt the GOPe Splitter Strategy actually exists, please answer me one simple question...

The Beltway Establishment's secretive plan to hand Jeb Bush the GOP nomination (also known as the "GOPe Splitter Strategy") hinged on flooding the zone with establishment candidates.

Friends of mine -- knowledgeable operators in the Republican hemisphere -- have pooh-poohed the idea of such a conspiracy. To which I respond with a single question:

Why are Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, George Pataki (Who? Exactly) and other non-entities still pretending to be in the race?

All six candidates are drawing -- in aggregate -- six percent. How can they afford a campaign under these conditions? Simple, they can't. They're being funded by the GOPe.

Problem is: a very large monkey wrench was thrown into the establishment's machinery.

And things will never be the same.

My Gun Control Debate With a Liberal

Via email, a response to a far left totalitarian who seeks the confiscation of America's guns. Because that would save all the children, dontcha know?:

Dear L,

The history and text of the Second Amendment are crystal clear. The Bill of Rights podcast I sent you provides an excellent description of the Federalist vs. Anti-Federalist Debate on these topics.

As an aside, as Americans bought 170 million new guns since 1991, violent crime has dropped by more than half (source).

Concealed carry (CCW), once restricted to one state just a few decades ago, is allowed almost everywhere. And as CCW has proliferated, murder rates have dropped precipitously (source).

But since we're talking about saving the children, shouldn't we be more worried about the epidemic of violent crime by illegal aliens (by the Obama administration's own numbers, 37 percent of all federal sentences were levied against illegal aliens).

In fact, the Government Accountability Office reports that more than 25,000 homicides (1,000 Sandy Hooks!) were committed by illegal aliens over the last few years.

So, in fact, if you would like to save thousands of lives without having to repeal the Bill of Rights, perhaps sealing the border might serve as an excellent appetizer.

QOTD: "One of the Clintons’ oldest and most trusted legal advisers has urged Hillary to hire a criminal defense attorney to represent her in case she’s indicted for mishandling classified documents on her private e-mail server and for lying under oath...

...“This e-mail thing is spiraling out of control,” he said. “To paraphrase John Dean of Watergate fame, it’s a cancer on her candidacy ... I’ve told them repeatedly that this FBI e-mail investigation could go in a very dangerous direction very quickly."

“I think Bill takes the matter seriously. But Hillary is still acting as though it’s a political smear job by right-wing zealots.”" --Edward Klein

BLUE STATE UTOPIA: Illinois enters fourth month without a budget; standoff could mean lights out at Capitol

In the unfolding -- and somewhat hilarious Blue-on-Blue war between the Democrat-Union Axis and the people of Illinois who unfailingly elect them -- the nation's most broke-ass state is going on its fourth month without a budget.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White warned the governor this week that the ongoing budget standoff would cause major problems at government facilities statewide, "including the possibility that the electricity could be shut off at the Capitol".

Please consider: "Illinois' budget standoff could mean lights out at Capitol" (the article itself disappeared from the IUSB website, so the link goes to the cached version):


By Julia Hahn

Fifty years ago today, Ted Kennedy began changing the face of the United States by ushering the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act through Congress. That legislation resulted in the fundamental transformation of the demographic, economic, social, and political landscape of nation, exactly the opposite of what its supporters promised.

The Kennedy immigration law abolished the national origins quota system, which had favored immigrants from nations with a similar heritage to our own, and opened up American immigration visas to the entire world.

While about nine in ten of the immigrants who came to the United States during the 19th and 20th century hailed from Europe, the 1965 law inverted that figure. Today about 9 out of every 10 new immigrants brought into the country on green cards come from Latin America, Africa, Asia or the Middle East.

The size of the numbers also grew exponentially as well. According to Pew Research Center, 59 million immigrants entered the United States following the Act’s passage. Including their children, that added 72 million new residents to the U.S. population.

In 1965, according to Pew, the country was 84 percent white, 11 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic and less than 1 percent Asian.

ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK: GOPe in panic mode as Kasich support evaporates and Jeb! numbers drop below IQ of Biden

The Beltway Establishment's secretive plan to hand Jeb Bush the GOP nomination by flooding the zone with candidates (also known as the "GOPe Splitter Strategy") has totally unravelled.

Let's start in New Hampshire, where support for John Kasich has fallen off the cliff:

QOTD: "In 1999, at the height of the Lewinsky scandal, Hillary again assaulted the president. Stone cites Christopher Andersen’s account:

“Much of what transpired . . . was plainly audible to Secret Service and household staff members down the hall. In the past, Hillary had thrown books and an ashtray at the president — both hitting their mark . . . Hillary slapped him across the face — hard enough to leave a red mark that would be clearly visible to Secret Service agents when he left the room.

“ ‘You stupid, stupid, stupid bastard,’ Hillary shouted.”

As editor and author R. Emmett Tyrell has reported, the verbal and physical abuse has not relented since the Clintons left the White House: “Sources close to the Secret Service . . . report that dreadful altercations have erupted several times,” and usually involve “yelling, screaming, throwing of soft and hard objects, breakage of vases and glasses and just plain nastiness.”" --Maureen Callahan
