Perhaps you remember this story in The Atlantic a few weeks ago, as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced his state was going to begin reopening towards the end of April following a gubernatorial-led national shutdown of our economy. This paragraph is notable: Kemp’s order shocked people across the country. For weeks, Americans have watched the […]

There are two votes I regret in my adult life. First, was voting for Jimmy Carter for President in 1976 (I was a stupid 20-year-old liberal Democrat and college student at the time), and my vote for Arlen Specter in the GOP Primary for US Senate in 2004. Specter, with strong support from my friend, […]

Do you ever feel like you’re living in some kind of an alternate reality? How could you not? The United States of America, the most powerful and dynamic country in world history, along with most Western countries, is almost totally shut down because of . . . a virus! That’s right, the country is not […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that American pastor Andrew Brunson was moved from a Turkish prison to house arrest, and they condemn the bogus allegations that Brunson provided aid for the failed coup. They also welcome the news that the ten most popular governors in America are Republican— great news in a year when most governorships are on the ballot. And they condemn the insanity of Santa Barbara, California, threatening fines and jail time for restaurant servers handing out plastic drinking straws without being asked, but Jim also sees a fantastic business opportunity there.

As I reported last week, the California gubernatorial race has two Republicans vying to get into second place in the upcoming June primary to face off against Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom in November. Well, now President Trump has weighed in with a tweet officially endorsing John Cox for Governor. This important endorsement could seal the […]

A year after Donald Trump’s improbable win, voters went to the polls in Virginia to elect a new governor—a contest that was, in part, a referendum on Trump’s nascent presidency. Hoover senior fellow and renowned pollster Doug Rivers breaks down the Old Dominion vote and what the results say about the effectiveness of Republican and Democratic messaging on the verge of the 2018 midterm elections.

I don’t usually care very much about who’s the governor in a state I don’t live in, but I’ve been following this one a bit via the segments in the Ricochet Podcast Superfeed and I really want Gillespie to win. Although I have vague memories of seeing him on the Sunday shows during Obama’s first […]

I just posted this over at RushBabe49.com. I would like to thank our former Attorney General for including this in his daily summary of the activities of our sleazy politicians down in Olympia. Our governor is demonstrating that he has about the brain power of our “senior” senator, who is the stupidest member of either […]

I’m sure someone has addressed this already, but here’s my input anyway. The Governor’s race is still undecided as of this writing, mainly because 90,000 votes were ‘discovered’ to have been left out of the count. Reference my title and ask yourself, “How in the name of all that’s holy can that be possible?!?”. A […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Rick Perry Seizes the Moment

 

Late Friday, a Travis County grand jury voted to indict Gov. Rick Perry in perhaps the most obvious political prosecution yet waged by progressives. But as a handful of party flacks applauded the nakedly partisan move, several others denounced it, including the Washington Post, David Axelrod and even the New York Times.

Gov. Perry responded to the out-of-control district attorney’s office with a confident, defiant press conference. Perhaps more surprisingly, this afternoon he turned himself into authorities for fingerprints and a mug shot. No presidential aspirant would willingly hand his opponents that kind of ammo without a plan. And if anyone has turned an indictment into a political positive, Rick Perry has.
