After Millions in Tax Breaks for Hollywood, DreamWorks’ Jeffery Katzenberg Kills 350 Jobs
  28 Feb 2013     2:56 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Despite some $430 million in tax breaks for Hollywood in last year’s “fiscal cliff” deal, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has announced that he is cutting 350 people by the end of the year.
After the disappointing box office for DreamWorks’ latest film, The Rise of the Guardians, Katzenberg said that the $165 million loss made him “go back and rethink everything.”
“So it makes you go back and rethink everything, not just the fact that it didn’t work–certainly we spent a lot of time reflecting on that–but more importantly saying, ‘Let’s …

Obama Fails to Register ‘OrganizingForAction.net,’ Hilariously, Site Re-Directs to NRA Homepage
  26 Feb 2013     9:22 pm      Warner Todd Huston

At the beginning of the year, President Barack Obama’s new 501(c)4 political nonprofit, Organizing For Action, was launched with all the usual bells and whistles. But the tech wizards at OFA forgot one important rule in today’s Internet world: Register all the iterations of your website address before someone else does.
Now Obama’s team is filing complaints against the folks smart enough to get the addresses before he did.
As Obama’s OFA made its debut, no one in his purportedly Internet-savvy campaign had obtained the corresponding .com, .net, .org or .us …

Left Pays No Attention to Obama Pledge of No Name Calling
  26 Jan 2013     10:29 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Even as Obama stood in front of hundreds of thousands of admirers during his inaugural speech saying that we needed to end the name calling, many in his party and many of his surrogates have utterly ignored that advice.
“We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate,” Obama said from the Capitol steps on inauguration Monday.
But only a few days later, even as the President was heard pleading for civility, Democrat Senator Patty Murray (WA) accused Republicans of “hostage-taking” over the budget …

Roe at 40: A Discussion with Live Action’s Lila Rose
  23 Jan 2013     5:06 pm      Matt Vespa

On January 22, the United States celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case, which legalized abortion in all fifty states.  In doing so, the Court usurped a developing consensus amongst the state legislatures on the issue, and violated the principle of federalism that should guide how we enact policy in this country.  Nevertheless, Roe, in estimates from The National Right to Life Committee, has been responsible for 54,559,615 abortions since 1973.  As Daniel Halper wrote for The Weekly Standard on January 22,”that…means there are more than 3,300 …

Dems Gain Voter ID Edge, Again
  9 Jan 2013     2:22 pm      Matt Vespa

The pendulum in the war between liberals and conservatives continues to swing with Democrats regaining the voter ID edge in the aftermath of the 2012 election.  According to Mike Flynn of Breitbart, he wrote today that this shouldn’t be a surprise.
A new survey by Gallup shows Democrats regaining their edge in party identification over the GOP. In 2012, 47% of Americans identified as Democrat or lean-Democrat. 42% identified as GOP or lean-GOP. In 2011, the two parties were even, with each claiming 45% of Americans. In 2008, however, Democrats held a 12-point …

Obama’s Lawless Presidency
  7 Jan 2013     4:48 pm      Warner Todd Huston

President Obama’s supporters love to call him the “cool” President, a “no drama” guy, and generally like to claim he is unflappable in office. Whatever the truth of that claim, there is one thing for sure: he doesn’t sweat the small stuff. Like following the law. During his four years in office this president has shown he couldn’t care less about the laws he’s supposed to be governed by as president.
This lawlessness started all the way back before he even became president. It was widely discussed in 2008 that he …

Ohio Progressive Radio Station Fails, Blames Obama?
  20 Dec 2012     12:37 am      Warner Todd Huston

WVKO, a left-wing radio station in Columbus, Ohio, is going under. Even after being the dutiful soldiers for team Obama the station can’t pay its bills. And as the station goes down the tubes they are pointing fingers. At Obama!
Talkers Magazine recently posted the announcement that WVKO, Ohio’s Progressive Radio, will cease operations for 2013. The station will replace the progressive shows with a new Gospel format.
“In a post at the station’s website, Richards spreads the blame around to everyone from the Obama campaign to local advertisers,” Talkers says.
Boy did …

Repeat after me: gun control isn’t the answer
  15 Dec 2012     7:31 pm      Matt Vespa

The tragedy in Newton, CT should shake us all to our very core.  Of the 26 who were killed yesterday, 20 of them were children. It’s evil.  It’s grotesque.  And I’m sure many mothers and fathers were holding their children a little tighter last night.  Sadly, for twenty families, that will no longer be possible.  Our thoughts and prayers should go out to everyone, especially to the brave teachers who sacrificed their lives to save their students. One teacher, Vicki Soto, shielded her students from the gunfire – and made …

Weekly Standard’s Kristol Throws Up Hands, GOP Should ‘Acquiesce’ to Obama
  12 Dec 2012     4:19 pm      Warner Todd Huston

-By Warner Todd Huston
William Kristol, Editor of the Weekly Standard, seems to have decided that retreat is the way forward for the Republican Party. In a new editorial that approaches a meltdown, the Fox commentator and consummate Washington insider essentially advised the GOP to just throw in the towel on these fiscal cliff talks and more or less accept Obama’s terms.
In the piece, a dour Kristol detailed all the shock and depression that Republican insiders feel after losing an election they’d all thought was in the bag for team Romney …

The Lonely Position of Neutral
  12 Dec 2012     3:26 am      Matt Vespa

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete their decade-long project of ending the Bush Tax Cuts and gutting of the Pentagon.  They have no incentive to meet us halfway, or negotiate in a meaningful way to make sure the markets don’t tank. …

In Treatment
  12 Dec 2012     2:13 am      Matt Vespa

Yes, Republicans are in treatment after their catastrophic loss last November.  We kept our majority in the House due to gerrymandering, and we lost two seats in the Senate.  Romney’s loss was bad, but our inability to gain seats in the Senate was ignominious.  Democrats were tasked with defending twenty-three senate seats, and twelve of those races had eminently beatable incumbents.  However, due to some of our party members’ obsession with rape and pregnancy, we’re short two seats when the next congress convenes.
What’s becoming increasingly clear is that the conservative …

Welfare State Advocate Spews Inaccuracies on PBS NewsHour
  11 Dec 2012     3:49 am      Matt Vespa

The PBS NewHour has yet to invite a hard core conservative on the program to talk about the fiscal cliff.  Last week, they had NYT’s columnist, left-wing economist, and Obama cheerleader – Paul Krugman to detail his view.  Then, they had Sen. Bob Corker ( R-TN), but the December 6 broadcast was the most interesting. PBS invited the Norquist of the left Max Richtman, of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, that we shouldn’t be in a rush to reform our entitlement spending.  After all, when the …

AFP-PA presents taxpayer Xmas list, urges PA governor to reject exchange program
  11 Dec 2012     3:23 am      Matt Vespa

It’s Christmas Winter solstice/holiday time – and Governor Corbett seems tepid to reject the federal-state health care exchange program, which will be instituted under Obamacare.  Mitt Romney implemented a similar program, at the state level, when he was Governor of Massachusetts – which explains why conservatives were unable to make the 2012 election a referendum on Obamcare.  As Grace-Marie Turner at Forbes wrote in her column on December 1o, “at least 21 states have said they definitely or probably will not set up state exchanges, with Ohio, Wisconsin, Maine, Nebraska, …

Time To Double-Down, Not Sell Out
  3 Dec 2012     12:00 am      Robert Cleveland

“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?”
-Matthew 16:26
 
While this year’s election was a mixed bag for the GOP overall, many are still mourning Mitt Romney’s loss in the presidential election, and the jury is still out on how the Republican Party will react as they look toward strategies for winning in 2014 and 2016.
 
One of the most interesting perspectives is coming from those GOP strategists and commentators who still think that the Republican Party needs to moderate even more in order …

Sen. Orrin Hatch: Obama Fiscal Proposal ‘Classic Bait and Switch’
  1 Dec 2012     4:12 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Senator Orrin Hatch (R, Utah) delivered the GOP weekly address and it was a damn good one.
He pulled no punches and laid it out straight that Obama lied when he ran for re-election and perpetrated a “classic bait and switch” maneuver. What ever you think of Mr. Hatch or the GOP, he spoke truth in this one.

Transcript:

“Hi. I’m Senator Orrin Hatch from the great state of Utah.
“The holiday season is upon us: a time when families come together to celebrate and reflect on another year gone by—and another …

Obama’s Re-Election Mandate: Guess Whose Money He’s Targeting Next?
  1 Dec 2012     1:55 pm      Rachel Alexander

Many Americans didn’t bother to vote in the past presidential election, some out of apathy or a belief that the election would hardly affect them. They are in for a rude awakening now that Obama has won re-election. His Santa Claus false promises are unsustainable, so there are going to be few winners and a lot of losers as he redistributes wealth. Obama ran on a platform of making the rich “pay their fair share of taxes,” but raising taxes on the wealthy will only fund the federal government for eight days …

Assoc. Press Paints Murders in Benghazi as Merely a ‘PR Disaster’
  30 Nov 2012     4:14 pm      Warner Todd Huston

In an outrageous attempt to defuse for President Obama the murderous disaster that is his security failures in Benghazi on September 11, the Associated Press deemed the whole debacle merely a “PR disaster” and speculated it could all just be forgotten if Susan Rice were to be successfully nominated as our next Secretary of State.

The White House could finally have its chance to close the books on its Benghazi public relations disaster, as key Republicans signal they might not stand in the way of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to become …

College Professors Lose Hours Because of Obamacare
  27 Nov 2012     3:01 pm      Warner Todd Huston

One of my favorite stories this week is the college professors at Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny who’ve had their hours cut because of the costly requirements of Obamacare.
One of Obamacare’s changes to general business practices is to make people who work 30 hours or more a “full time worker.” For generations that magic number was 40 hours a week. But now that Obamacare is forcing this change to what is considered a full-timer, businesses across the country are forced to change policies and cut the hours of employees to …

Minorities Disproportionately Worse Off Under Obama
  25 Nov 2012     12:44 pm      Rachel Alexander

It is puzzling that so many minorities voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney considering how disproportionately they have suffered economically during Obama’s presidency. Black unemployment under Obama increased at a higher pace than whites, from 12.7% to 14.1%, ending at almost twice the unemployment rate of whites. Now, one out of every seven blacks is unemployed. White unemployment barely increased under Obama, from 7.1% to 7.4%.
Blacks’ median income has fallen 11.1% under Obama, more than twice as much as whites. The disparity in wealth between whites and blacks nearly doubled during Obama’s tenure. According to …

In Final Week Romney Coverage Increasingly Negative, MSNBC Had Zero Favorable Romney Stories
  23 Nov 2012     2:28 pm      Warner Todd Huston

According to the latest study of the last week of the media’s coverage of the 2012 presidential election, Romney’s coverage turned increasingly negative. The worst example was that of MSNBC which didn’t have any positive stories about Romney’s campaign, not a single one.
The study conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, showed that MSNBC had zero positive stories about Romney while its Obama coverage skewed 51% positive for the President.
Fox News also increased its negative coverage, for Obama in that case, but its coverage was not …
