Dem party leaders attacked for “rigging” the nomination process

(Paul Mirengoff) It seemed like a good idea at the time. Hillary Clinton would be coronated by the Democrats, so there was no need for many debates, Keep the number of them low — six in total, with only four before the Iowa caucus — and thereby minimize the risk that Clinton will look bad before a large audience. It’s less clear now that this is a good idea. The many Democratic voters who don’t want a coronation would welcome more debates. Moreover, if th...

Exclusive: Should the GOP Steal Jefferson from Dems? [With Comment by John on Jackson]

(Steven Hayward) One of my fellow cruisers on the Baltic Sea last week was Seth Lipsky of the New York Sun, who wrote a terrific column about 10 days ago for the New York Post arguing that since Democrats are giving up on Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson (because, at bottom, Democrats dislike and/or are ashamed of America’s history), Republicans ought ...

Take a Lesson From Trump: Stand Up to the Media

(John Hinderaker) There are several reasons why Donald Trump is popular with Republicans, even though he probably isn’t a Republican himself, and certainly is not a conservative. One of them is the way he stands up to left-wing media. This is a classic, from earlier today: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said “CNN is terrible” after one of its reporters asked him about...

Hillary Doubles Down: Republicans Are Nazis, Too

(Steven Hayward) So what happens when a politician says, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants”? Oh wait, the person who said that was Senator Hillary Clinton, to WABC Radio’s John Gambling in a 2003 interview. Whatever. Today Hillary trumped (heh) her suggestion yesterday that Republicans are the moral equivalent of Islamic terrorists by suggesting the GOP...

Obama Lawlessness: Speaking of Science Fraud. . .

(Steven Hayward) Last year we reported on the case of John Beale, the career EPA employee who was busted for fraud for claiming to be a covert CIA operative while bilking the EPA for years as one of its highest paid employees, who was spending his time at home figuring out how to, in his own words, “modify the DNA of the capitalist system…” Because government bureaucrats like Beale are just so ...

Priorities: FDA cracks down on vegan mayonnaise labeling

As always, the Food and Drug Administration has its eye on the ball and its arms around freedom…in a big, stifling bear hug. The Founders no doubt intended that the federal government would have a passel of people in charge of telling successful condiment producers what they can put on their labels. For freedom. In […] Read this post » ...

Great news from Obama: This nuclear deal “solves” the problem of Iran as an existential threat to Israel

Stupid. Did I hallucinate the part of the deal that gives Iran the west’s blessing to start enriching uranium again in 15 years? And not just to enrich but to enrich with far more efficient technology, shrinking the “breakout” ...

Clinton vs. Clinton?

(Steven Hayward) Over at Commentary today Noah Rothman raises a great question: by tacking left to reflect the current center of gravity in the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton is essentially repudiating the policy orientation of her husband’s presidency: Does Hillary Clinton believe her husband’s presidency set the Democratic ...

University of Tennessee to students: Diversity means using new made-up pronouns for trans students

“Oh, nice to meet you, [insert name]. What pronouns should I use?” Via the Examiner, I’d do what they say. In our alarming new culture of rage against microaggressions, doing otherwise might get you shot. Rather than make brutish assumption...

WaPo: Trump’s poll rise no longer looks like Perry’s and Gingrich’s 2012 flash-in-the-pan surges

Yuge. I’ve seen this comparison made a lot lately and still haven’t figured out why the Gingrich and Perry boomlets of 2012 should be a useful baseline for measuring the Trump boomlet this year. The dynamics of the two campaigns are completel...

The Green Energy Scam Exposed by . . . Berkeley!?!

(Steven Hayward) The Energy Institute at the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley has posted a working paper entitled “The Distributional Effects of U.S. Clean Energy Tax Credits.” The paper is a devastating indictment of who’s getting Cecil the Lion’s share of the tax credits. If this were any other cause than “green energy,” the Left would be...

Who’s to Blame For Murders of Virginia Journalists? Congress!

(John Hinderaker) That’s what Democratic Senator Chris Murphy says: I think change is going to happen. I just don’t think that democracy can work with when you have 90 percent of the American public that want changes in our gun laws and Congress not responding. This is sheer fantasy. In fact, only a minority of Americans want stricte...

Video: FBI “A-team” getting “extremely serious” on Hillary e-mail probe

Pity the fool? While Hillary Clinton continued to brush off questions about her secret e-mail server at the DNC summer meeting in Minneapolis, the FBI has grown a lot more interested in it. Two sources within the investigation tell Fox News’ Catherine Herridge that they ...

Hillary: These Republicans want to round up illegals and put them in “boxcars”

Subtle. Via Mediaite, a little Nazi allusion to go with yesterday’s terrorism slur from someone who once said, as a United States senator, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.” Not only was she adamantly against illegal immigrants, she...

Lunatic who murdered Virginia journalists saw racism in words like “swinging” and “field”

“[But] that was his MO — to start s- -t.” Dark humor from Sonny Bunch: “Instead of going on a killing spree, this guy should’ve gotten a columnist gig at The Guardian.” In fact, knowing what we now know, a phrase like &#...

Of course: Petition circulating to ban “Lion Killer Dentist” Halloween costume

Problematic. First the “Caitlyn Jenner” Halloween costume brought out the ban-bots for its “problematic” approach to humor. Now the killjoys don’t want laughter over the Very Serious Matter of Cecil the Lion. The issue got a...

Please Proofread my Blog

Dear Friend of a A Disgruntled Republican,  I love writing for this blog but I often cannot see my own mistakes.  Sometimes, I can see them the next day, but can not see them prior to posting. Sometimes I never see them. I can proofread something someone else wrote better than I can proofread what I wrote. While spell check can catch an obviously misspelled word, it cannot catch the wrong word. If you see a mistake, please call it to my attention immediately. If you have my p...
