Kimberlin went up against Ace of Spades’ lawyer as well and properly got bitchslapped

Robert Stacy McCain read a feminist memoir entitled In Our Time (which is about the feminist fringe) so we do not have to, and for that I thank him.

Speaking of Ace of Spades, he spanked Dave Weigel for his defense of Alex Sink (who ran for Governor of Florida in 2010 and lost to Rick Scott so she is now running for the 13th Congressional District seat to replace the late C.W. [Bill] Young)

It seems that Katy Perry still has a crush on Russell Brand or something

Eric Holder had been hospitalized for what, as comedian Jim Labriola (who played Benny Barone on “Home Improvement” With Tim Allen) says, “looks like a heart attack

It seems that Planned Parenthood is going down the kinky road by promoting the BDSM lifestyle for teenagers

The Other McCain has a couple of articles on Duke Student Belle Knox. Among them:

2 years ago today, Andrew Breitbart had died, and I had posted my own memoriam of him in a couple of places:

In honor of Andrew Breitbart, I will be dedicating tomorrow’s episode of the #WaveCave on Eclipse Radio to his memory. One of the things that Andrew liked to do on Twitter was post song titles or YouTube links, and I will be playing songs that he liked or would like. This is tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern.

And that is all the news that is news today. If you like what you read, feel free to hit the tip jar as all proceeds from there will go to maintenance of the website and blog as well as trips to conventions or conferences.

I like Kirsten Powers, but it seems that she is all about the idolatry of equality

While Ukraine burns, another scandal threatens to blow it apart as Ukraine bought bloggers cheap

Speaking of Ukraine burning, it looks like freedom has emerged victorious

The GOP establishment is playing the role of #ConcernTroll over a candidate who is battling Pat Roberts in the Kansas Primary for U.S. Senator

If Vitali Klitschko and Vladimir Putin meet in the presidential ring, I would wager on Vitali for a landslide victory.

82nd Rant: The REAL problem with the Second Amendment

Many people have a problem with the Second Amendment to the Constitution which reads as follows:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Many take that to mean that ONLY the military and police officers should have guns, but that is far from the truth. The reason for a militia is to protect the citizenship from the government. And the militia is not the military or the police officers. Rather, it is normal citizens. After all, when the British tried to take the weapons from the Patriots in 1773 the Patriots fought back and then on July 2, 1776, declared themselves free and independent from Britain.

The gun control battle came up with Fast & Furious under the Obama Administration (which Katie Pavlich wrote about in depth in her wonderful book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up) and also with Operation Wide Receiver under the George W. Bush Administration (of which they are both TOTALLY different in that one did not lead into the other) then came full bore with the shooting in Tucson (Arizona) in 2011 where Former Congresswoman Gabriella Giffords (Democrat from Arizona’s 8th District) was shot. Then came Aurora (Colorado) and Newtown (Connecticut) in 2012, where mentally ill people decided to pick up a gun and just commit unspeakable horrors. After the Newtown tragedy, many politicians (all on the Democrat side) called for stricter gun laws and gun control. I am against it for the simple reason that if you look at history, the dictators of the world (Hitler in Germany, Stalin in Russia, Mao in China, and Pol Pot in Cambodia) had first come to power with talk of gun control. Then when only the military and police had guns, the dictators decided to unleash holy hell on their respective countries. Many try to make reasonable arguments for no gun control and support for the second Amendment, but one such comment only took 30 seconds, and said so much more than many of the politicians and pro-Second Amendment supporters could in 30 hours. Take a listen to my good friend Kira Davis:

 

Kira Davis (@KiraAynDavis) and the Second Amendment

Kira is a GREAT American (f/t to Sean Hannity for that phrase) and a wonderful Conservative woman who I am proud to call friend. She says many things in 30 seconds (as the above video) or in 5 minutes than any politician or pundit can speak in 5 hours. Definitely give her a follow (she is @KiraAynDavis on Twitter) and also subscribe to her YouTube Channel for more wisdom.

There were 11 killed on American roads in 2 separate crashes (one in California and another in Florida) this weekend due to motorists driving against the traffic

Time for Round One of Laura Ingraham v. George Will on Fox News Sunday

It seems that Robert Stacy McCain is not yet done beating Jesse Myerson down. Now he is going after Myerson for what was written on Sarah Palin after the Tucson shooting in 2011

f/t to Mick Baker for giving us a dose of sanity in the winter months, even if Smitty denounces him for it.

As if ObamaCare is not bad enough, there are still more dangers associated with it

And yet we have another teacher suffering from Mary Kay Letourneau syndrome. This time a 24 year-old high school math teacher from Tacoma, Washington

In addition to The Other McCain, there is news form elsewhere in the blogosphere.

f/t to Diane Sori of The Patriot Factor for her op-ed entitled Iranian warships close at hand and Obama does and says nothing

f/t to W.J.J. Hoge of Hogewash! for his usual Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering and Team Kimberlin posts of the day, as well as his Quote of the day

f/t to Dan Riehl of Riehl World View for his take on the 24 year-old high school math teacher from Tacoma suffering from Mary Kay Letourneau syndrome

And in case you had forgotten, Aaron Worthing of Allergic to Bull reminds us that Brett Kimberlin still wants to shut us up

I had a little bit of a hiccup toward the end of the #WaveCave on Eclipse Radio yesterday, as my cable cut out on me 8 – 10 songs form the end, but here is all that I DID manage to play prior to the cable outage. I am hoping to be on the air next Sunday at 4 PM Eastern for more tunes, so feel free to tune in or keep an eye to the #WaveCave hashtag for more tunes.

And in other Kimberlin news, it seems that  "Cabin Boy" Bill "The Walrus" Schmalfeldt is still maintaining some sort of insane investment in the case for some unknown reason

The real losers of the Super Bowl this past Sunday? The hard working taxpayers of Illinois

Obama is continuing to spout things that should not be necessary

Sunday was a prime case in what NOT to do as President as Obama just gave a ten minute lesson in #Shutuppery in his interview with Bill O'Reilly

Environmentalist Wackos (f/t Rush Limbaugh) are flocking to the aid of an anti-fracking scientist who says “Fuck the children. Save the planet!”

It’s a Wild Wednesday

And here’s The News to keep you up to date

Also, check out The Layfield Report, Twitchy, Wayne Dupree, InstaPundit, Drudge, and Breitbart for more news.

In case you missed it, here is the news from yesterday and Monday (in the form of linkagery)

Killing babies is never a good thing, but apparently some guy named Tom Kludt thinks it is

How bad is disgraced journalist Stephen Glass? Apparently he is so bad that California declared him morally unfit to practice law there

And the sordid saga of a dead Senate aide who committed suicide continues

And the #BrettKimberlin saga continues with him experiencing more delusions of grandeur

If you want a real #WarOnWomen, look no further than what Obama endorsed in his State of the Union last night

There are times in which even someone on the Right who is despised by mane gets it correct on a controversial topic. Erick Erickson is one who did on the issue of Wendy Davis

It is bad enough when teachers molest students. It is even worse when other teachers do not investigate their own

It is also bad enough when parents abuse their children. It is even worse when parents sell their children for sex

There was another shooting. This time in a mall just outside of Baltimore, Maryland. Was the shooter a Tea Party Extremist as Democrats claim? Actually, no. He was a teen skateboarder

Alicia Gray, the teacher who decided to give a student a little “extra credit” then admitted in a video that it was wrong, had attracted the attention of a Liberty University Law Professor who said her responses clearly demonstrate that most child sexual offenders are extremely self-serving and dangerously manipulative

Robert Stacy McCain successfully gave one person who said the American Dream is dead in the south a severe cyber beatdown

According to liberals and feminists, Wendy Davis might be dishonest about her personal narrative, but it still matters

And in other news, Sarah Silverman is a disgusting liberal footstool

Paul Waldman is carrying the liberal banner of “Vote Democrat, you sluts!

Smitty was a guest on Da Tech Guy’s radio show this past Saturday.In case you missed it, Smitty has a short version of the highlights

f/t to Liz Harrison (the Goldwater Gal) for her article responding to those who complain about James O'Keefe editing on Battleground Texas

f/t to Donald Douglas of American Power Blog for posting the Tea Party response to the State of the Union by Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah

81st Rant: The 2016 Presidential Primary Election Schedule

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus At the Republican National Committee (RNC) Winter Meeting over the weekend, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus had taken what I think is a major step toward taking the White House back in 2016 by strengthening the nominee (whoever it is, and if we are EVER to take the White House in 2016 we need to follow what Andrew Breitbart had said. More on that below) and empowering the voters during the primary process.

One of the main things he did is shorten the primary process for the goal of having the convention in late June or early July. The following is a list of the rules that were passed to make it happen.

[So] on Friday, we passed new rules to shape the 2016 presidential primary process.

  • First, the “carve out” states (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada) will hold their contests in February.
  • Other states can start their contests on or after March 1.
  • Any contest between March 1st and March 14th must allocate delegates on a proportional basis.
  • Any contest after March 14th may choose to allocate delegates proportionally or on a winner-take-all basis.
  • The deadline for selection of alternates and delegates will move from 35 days before the convention to 45 days before the convention.

Campaign 2016 You can read the whole thing on breitbart.com. Now while he is on the right path toward having the convention in June or July (which I had said should happen when I wrote my 26th Rant and my 27th Rant on these very topics back in January, 2012) he is doing it wrong. Granted, I know I am but a drop in the Republican Party as a voter and as such have no say in the process, but at least I agree that Priebus is leading the party in the right direction with holding the convention in June or July so as to give our nominee a fighting chance during the dog days of summer and also accomplish a little of what I had mentioned in my 26th Rant.

One thing I would see with [having the voting at the end of the month] is that all of the voting and tabulations would be done by May which means that the nominee would have three months to find a running mate and get the grassroots campaign at least started by getting the main headquarters set up before the convention. Then the day after they give their acceptance speech they can get started on their general election campaign.

You can read the whole thing at ricktheranter.blogspot.com. This in a sense also brings the dates of the Republican National Convention back to what it was during the first nomination of Ronald Reagan, when the 1980 convention was held July 14 to 17. It is also important to note that even before then the Republicans had traditionally held their conventions as early as the middle of May and as late as mid July from 1856 (when the Republicans held their first convention and nominated John Charles Fremont) until 1952 when they nominated Dwight David Eisenhower.

However, no matter what happens on our side, we all have to coalesce behind the nominee (whoever it is) after the convention because as I had pointed out in various rants during the 2012 election, the only two people who have a VIABLE chance of getting the electoral votes are the Republican and the Democrat nominees regardless of who is running as a minor (ie 3rd party or other party) candidate. We need to remember the words of Andrew Breitbart at CPAC in 2012 when he said the following (f/t to Biff Spackle of Director Blue for the transcript)

I don't care who our candidate is

You want a unity speech? I'll give you a unity speech. I don't care who our candidate is.
I haven't since the beginning of this... ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate!
And that's what the Tea Party is.
We are there to confront [the radical left] on behalf of our candidate!
I will march behind who ever our candidate is. Because if we don't, we lose.
There are two paths! There are two paths! One is America, the other is Occupy! One is America, the other is Occupy! And I don't care, and along the way... I've realized over the last three years that the Republican Party and the conservative movement is not what ABC, CBS and NBC put on the screen.
They try to portray you in the worst possible light... and when I travel around the United States meeting people in the Tea Party who care -- black, white, gay, straight -- anyone that's willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you're not in that bunker 'cause you're not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You're on the other side.

keep-calm-breitbart Read that part again: “anyone that's willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you're not in that bunker 'cause you're not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You're on the other side.” That is right. We might be zealous and support our candidate in the primary, but when the convention comes around and our candidate is not nominated, we have to support whoever the nominee for the Republican side is after the convention – even if it means holding our nose at the poling place on election day – because when we get to the fork in the road, we have to decide which branch of the fork (and from what I had seen there are only branches of the fork in the road) to go. As Andrew said, one path is America, and the other is Occupy or – since Occupy has dispersed in the middle of 2012 – Socialism. Choose wisely the path you wish to traverse, because there is no going back.

Priebus is taking the first steps to taking the White House back in 2016 with the moving of the convention to late June or early July, as well as moving the first four primaries to February, but we need to take the steps to help our candidate get across the finish line to get nominated. If we can, that is fine. If not, then we need to get behind the candidate that does ultimately get the nomination.

80th Rant: The Republican Presidential Nomination and 2016

One of my favorite blogs is entitled The Other McCain (no, not THAT McCain but the OTHER guy named McCain) and one of the articles that caught my eye was by Smitty entitled “32 GOP Presidential Choices? Nuts!” In it there was an email from GOP.com about 32 potential candidates for the presidential nomination. Now Smitty brings up a good point when he said the following:

(a) The next election is in 9 1/2 months, dudes. It’s both more important to focus on the next election, and to understand that how this November goes will inform what happens in 2016 in a major way.

We DO have a very important election in 9.5 months called the midterm elections in which all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 33 seats in the Senate (a total of 468 members of Congress) are up for grabs. If we focus on that, then we will decide where this country will go for the next two years and then ultimately in 2016. However, just for grinz, Smitty had put the 32 candidates in separate categories. I will posit his categories for all 32 candidates, and then offer my picks in the same categories.

Here are Smitty’s picks:

YES (9)

– Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas
- Nikki Haley, South Carolina governor
- Bobby Jindal, Louisiana governor
– Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor
– Mike Pence, Indiana governor
- Sen. Rand Paul, of Kentucky
- Scott Walker, Wisconsin governor
– Former Rep. Allen West, of Florida
- Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator

MAYBE (7)

- John Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations
- Ben Carson, author and neurosurgeon
– Rick Perry, Texas governor
- Condoleezza Rice, former secretary of state
– Sen. Marco Rubio, of Florida
- Sen. Rob Portman, of Ohio
– Sen. Tim Scott, of South Carolina

NO (11)

- Sen. Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire
- Haley Barbour, former Mississippi governor
– Chris Christie, New Jersey governor
– Mitch Daniels, former Indiana governor
- Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor
- Susana Martinez, New Mexico governor
– John Kasich, Ohio governor
- Former Rep. Ron Paul, of Texas
– Tim Pawlenty, former Minnesota governor
– Brian Sandoval, Nevada governor
- Sen. John Thune, of South Dakota

I WILL VOTE LIBERTARIAN (2)

- Jeb Bush, former Florida governor
- Rep. Peter King, of New York

SPECIAL MENTIONS (3)

– Herman Cain, a radio host–Health concerns
- Newt Gingrich, former House speaker–Be an advisor, sir.
– Rep. Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin–You soiled yourself on the budget deal.

And here are my picks:

YES (7) - Marco Rubio (Florida Senator)
- Ted Cruz (Texas Senator)
- John Bolton (former ambassador to the United Nations)
- Scott Walker (Wisconsin Governor)
-  Nikki Haley (South Carolina Governor)
- Tim Scott (South Carolina Senator)
- Bobby Jindal (Louisiana Governor)
MAYBE (13) - Ben Carson (Author and Neurosurgeon)
- Paul Ryan (Wisconsin Congressman)
- Allen West (Former Florida Congressman)
- Rand Paul (Kentucky Senator)
- Brian Sandoval (Nevada Governor)
- John Kasich (Ohio Governor)
- Condoleezza Rice (Former Secretary of State under President George W. Bush)
- Sarah Palin (Former Alaska Governor)
- Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire Senator)
- Haley Barbour (Former Mississippi Governor)
Mike Pence (Indiana Governor)
- Susanna Martinez (New Mexico Governor)
- John Thune (Former South Dakota Senator)
NO (10) - Jeb Bush (Former Florida Governor)
- Peter King (New York Congressman)
- Rick Santorum (Former Pennsylvania Senator)
- Ron Paul (Former Texas Congressman)
- Mike Huckabee (Former Arkansas Governor)
- Tim Pawlenty (Former Minnesota Governor)
- Rick Perry (Texas Governor)
- Rob Portman (Ohio Senator)
- Chris Christie (New Jersey Governor)
- Mitch Daniels (Former Indiana Governor)
I WILL VOTE OTHER (0) NONE (This is because if I were to vote for other if there were people in this category, then I would in a sense be voting for the Democrat running)
SPECIAL MENTIONS (2) - Herman Cain (Considering his age and also how 2012 was a train wreck for him, he might stay in radio)
- Newt Gingrich (I think he would be good in an advisory position or as Chief of Staff or other insider position for a Republican President)

Do you agree or disagree with my picks? Let me know on Skype (rickbulow74), email (rickbulow74@live.com), Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/RickBulow1974) or on Twitter (@RickBulow1974) where I am wrong.
