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

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: APRIL 24, 2015

National Review's Jim Geraghty and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today's Martinis: Liberals tire of defending Hillary Clinton, reports of a $50 billion windfall for Iran for signing the nuke deal, and MSNBC's Ed Schultz blasts Obama over free trade.



The NY Times editorial board's vote of no confidence in Hillary Clinton
It is admittedly difficult to bear the obsequious servility that punctuates The New York Times editorial board's latest gentle attempt to convince Hillary Clinton that she has a serious problem on her hands. Viewed, however, as a window into the thinking of the Democratic Party's terrified pragmatists who are slowly coming to the realization that they backed the wrong horse, The Times' latest is clarifying. It is a desperate and helpless demand that Clinton somehow stop the bleeding.
It isn't just the scandalous revelations swirling around the Clintons that have jeopardized her political prospects either. The former secretary of state's efforts to appeal to the Democratic Party's restless left-wing have been sloppy, polarizing, and have demonstrated the extent to which Clinton's political instincts have atrophied. Rest assured, smart Democratic operatives are panicking, and they're already contemplating a Plan B.
The Times might not be outwardly panicking just yet, but this editorial is a sign that the façade of calm is crumbling. This story will survive the weekend, and it has as much potential as did the former secretary of state's email scandal to force her out of the bunker and in front of the media's cameras. The question then becomes, how many hastily assembled damage control press conferences can one hold before the public stops listening?

THREE MARTINI LUNCH: APRIL 23, 2015

National Review's Jim Geraghty and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today's Martinis: The Clinton Foundation is forced to refile taxes, accusations that donations to the foundation influenced a major uranium deal, and the State Department's tendency to give awards to foundation donors.



Will the Clinton-Cash Scandal Doom Hillary's White House Bid?
How should one think about the unfolding allegations rocking the Clinton-Industrial Complex (which includes both her campaign and her foundation)?
By now, you may have heard about Peter Schweizer's book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. The book isn't even out yet, and Clinton's team is already sheltering in place like Churchill's cabinet during the Blitz. That's in part because Schweizer, a conservative author and dogged investigative journalist, has teamed up with the notorious right-wing rags the New York Times and the Washington Post to essentially re-report and expand on allegations made in the book.
Because it would be absurd to claim that these papers are part of the "vast right-wing conspiracy" - which won't stop flacks from saying it - they are much better equipped to drop the payload over the target.
Even Lawrence O'Donnell, a Democratic water-carrier of such sterling reliability that he makes Gunga Din look like a slacker, had to concede on MSNBC's Morning Joe that the Clinton campaign no longer has a Schweizer problem. It has "a New York Times problem."

HOW SCOTT WALKER CELEBRATED EARTH DAY...

 photo 0c0bc216-b524-4070-921b-47e41c2cc0c8_zpssnzfzazu.jpg

Via Ed Driscoll:
No seriously - if you're going to make the environmentalist catch-22 argument as Democrats John Kerry and Claire McCaskill have, that a shrinking economy is good for the environment because of less carbon emissions, then you have to agree that the same holds true for shrinking the government as well. Radical environmentalism isn't my religion, but the Book of Saul demands that its practitioners stay faithful to their own tenets.
"Contra Mother Jones, though: I don't think that Scott Walker deliberately set out to lay off those folks on Earth Day itself," Moe Lane posits.
"Instead, I simply think that Scott Walker doesn't give a flying leap about Earth Day one way, or the other. Which is, frankly, more entertaining." As Jonathan Chait's bete noire would say, heh, indeed.™
Certainly, Walker's doing more for the environment than this plutocratic carbon-destroying One Percenter.
Shot:
Chaser:
That level of carbon waste is so bad, Hollywood director Joss Whedon is pondering if he would withhold penicillin from the president should, Gaia forbid, he become ill. Particularly since Mr. Obama has been jetting away on "Earth Day" since the very start of his administration.
