Post-SOTU, Rubio Derangement Syndrome now at pandemic levels

As I predicted, Rubio’s SOTU response has left the media in a state of apoplexy. As a result, Rubio Derangement Syndrome has become a full-blown pandemic. Continue reading

Rubio Derangement Syndrome


If there’s one thing we can count on, just as certain as the sun rises from the East, it is that a Univisión Noticias staffer will at some point (to filch El SooperMexican’s term) go bath-salts crazy at the mere mention of El Senador Marco Antonio Rubio.  Continue reading

Immigration: history repeats itself

In 2009, the promise of comprehensive immigration reform took a back seat to the economy and to Obamacare. Events would seem to indicate that history is poised to repeat itself, just days from the second Obama inaugural. Continue reading

Blood-libeling the Second Amendment

I’ve not heard (or read) anyone say, post-Sandy Hook, that the senseless deaths of these innocents are “the price of our freedom”, and yet President Barack Obama advanced that very notion during the political portion of remarks delivered at last night’s prayer vigil in Newtown. I would expect this sort of craven hackery from Harry Reid on the Senate floor; not from Barack Obama in the midst of a solemn prayer vigil.

The martyrs of Sandy Hook deserve better than to be reduced to talking point props.

BLOGBURST: What Conservatives are Doing Wrong with Hispanics, and How to Fix it

NOTE:  I am proud to forward this primer on conservative Hispanic outreach, which is sorely needed after all the post-election postmortems and bellyaching.  Many thanks to Brittney Morrett, Samuel Rosado, Michelle Lancaster and Ben Domenech for working on this vital paper.  I am honored to join today’s spontaneous blogburst.  Furthermore, I call on the GOP/DC/Miami clownsultant class to do ZERO Hispanic outreach without first reading this primer and committing the principles within to memory.

On Rubio, GQ, and Brown Noise

Today’s faux outrage at Senator Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) response to GQ’s “how old is the Earth” question suggests three things: first, that the 2016 presidential campaign is, indeed, underway. Second, that any conservative with national aspirations (or aspiring to enter the national conversation) should expect, at some inevitable point, that a narrative-framing gotcha question will emerge.  Third, that efforts to deligitimize Marco Rubio’s national profile have entered their next phase. Continue reading

Hype: Castro comes up short

After great fanfare and huge hype, San Antonio Mayor Julían Castro delivered last night’s keynote speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.  On many counts, however, it fell short of the hype.

¿Pánico? OFA now running “Truth Team” ads in Spanish.

I think this is, at least to me, the first major disturbance in the Force post-Ryan.  Until now, OFA Spanish-language ads consisted mostly of either soft-focus celebrity fluff or story-driven organizer testimonials.  Today, OFA released a “Truth Team”-style web video featuring Gabriela Domenzaín, current Director of Hispanic Media and former founding producer of Univision’s Al Punto. Continue reading

“BFD” t-shirt, revised and corrected

The regime chose, as part of yesterday’s post-SCOTUS touchdown dance, to hawk its vulgar “BFD” t-shirt.  However, Chief Justice Roberts’ affirmation of the individual mandate renders the merchandise factually inaccurate.  Below you will find the new ObamaCare t-shirt, which accurately reflects the individual mandate solid constitutional foundations. Continue reading

DREAMs from The Amateur

President Barack Obama’s recent immigration announcement was not just an obvious craven pander to Hispanics designed to rapidly muster a dwindling base.  It was also an amateur move which may well poison the waters of our immigration policy debate for decades to come. Continue reading

Me siento a esperar por Nydia Velázquez

Tan recientemente como en marzo, la Congresista Nydia Velázquez (D-NY12) criticó que se usara a la Juez Sonia Sotomayor de “ficha política” (o peón, si lo quieres traducir así…el contexto es el mismo).  Ahora que lo acaba de hacer la campaña de reelección del Presidente Barack Obama, ¿qué dirá la Honorable? Continue reading

On David Axelrod and “insults to Hispanics”

As we know, Obama advisor David Axelrod went on Univision’s Al Punto yesterday, and from his mouth sprung forth the laughable, yet patently offensive idea, that the nomination of Marco Rubio as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate is somehow an “insult to Hispanics”.  Axelrod’s statement is beyond offensive on many levels. Continue reading

Bochorno: Obama no llega al 60% en primarias de Arkansas y Kentucky

El régimen sufrió dos duros reveses anoche, al no poder pasar del 60 por ciento en las primarias de Arkansas y Kentucky, respectivamente.  No es el primer dolor de cabeza que sufre la campaña del Presidente Barack Obama. Continue reading

The Audacity of Cynicism

President Barack Obama’s announcement of support for gay marriage was roundly hailed in progressive circles.  However, it has the look and feel of yet another identity politics play designed to distract from the economy, which is still the real driver in this election. Continue reading

La audacia del cinismo

Las expresiones de apoyo al matrimonio gay de parte del Presidente Barack Obama fueron, como era de esperarse, recibidas con bombos y platillos dentro de los círculos progresistas.  Sin embargo parece tener el aspecto de otro intento por aprovecharse de la política de identidad para distraer de la economía, el cual sigue siendo el impulsor de ésta elección.
