THE NARRATIVE AND POLITICAL CORRECTNESS


Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen. -George Orwell

The Koch brothers plan on spending nearly $1 billion dollars in the 2016 election cycle. Will that be enough to help send a Republican to the White House? Plus, Hillary Clinton's poll numbers are fading.

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: JANUARY 28, 2015

National Review's Jim Geraghty and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today's topics: Scott Walker moves closer to a presidential bid, Mike Pence's state-run news service idea, and crashing drones onto the White House lawn.



'I. Can't. Wait.' Scott Walker poised to breathe new life into 2016 POTUS race
Hold on to your hats:
From WaPo:
Walker filed papers to set up the committee, called "Our American Revival," and a new Web site for the organization was scheduled to go live later Tuesday. The steps come after a busy weekend of pre-presidential events that included his address at the Iowa Freedom Summit, a later appearance at a gathering in California hosted by the billionaire Koch brothers and a stopover in Denver for additional fundraising.
"Our American Revival encompasses the shared values that make our country great; limiting the powers of the federal government to those defined in the Constitution while creating a leaner, more efficient, more effective and more accountable government to the American people," Walker said in a statement in the release announcing the committee.
The formation of the new committee represents Walker's most significant step to date in a process that is expected to result in a declaration of candidacy later this year, once he and the legislature have gone through the budget process in his state.
In a field full of Jebs and Mitts and Ricks, Walker is a welcome — and fresh — addition.
We'll drink to that!










Has a nice ring to it, dontcha think?

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: JANUARY 27, 2015

National Review's Andrew Johnson and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today's topics: House leaders pull a weak "border-security" bill, the steep price of the Bowe Bergdahl swap, and former Maryland governor Bob Ehrlich mulls a run for the White House.



Is the legacy of the Bergdahl swap putting American national security at risk?
"Since I've been President," Barack Obama said during his 2015 State of the Union address, "we've worked responsibly to cut the population of GTMO in half."
"Now it's time to finish the job," he continued. "And I will not relent in my determination to shut it down. It's not who we are."
Just how responsible the administration has been in pursuit of this mission is debatable. Perhaps understandably, the president failed to mention that his definition of what is responsible apparently includes breaking the law.
When the Pentagon agreed to the swap of five Taliban commanders detained in Guantanamo Bay in exchange for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and rushed to spirit those prisoners away, the Government Accountability Office determined that the Pentagon violated the 2014 Department of Defense Appropriations Act by failing to provide Congress with the minimum 30-day notice.
The dangerous precedents set as a result of that exchange are still coming to light...
