Our Chapter President Josh Jaye, Secretary Sean Mahoney, and member Carl Maass were interviewed by Peter Hamby of CNN’s Hambycast on YAL’s mission at CofC, as …

  • Rudy Giuliani: Blind Squirrel

    The old adage that even a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut seems to fit former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s appearance on CNN Sunday morning: …[the] Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people’s bedrooms and let these things get decided by states…Stay out of it… And I …

  • New Poll Shows Majority Disapprove of Obama

    Yes, there are some good news in the midst of all this. A new CNN poll shows that Obama’s approval rating is not so much a good news for him. The poll reveals that 51% of the 1,030 participants disapprove of the president. Healthcare also received a high negative rating of 56%. The highest negeative …

  • Re: Cloture Vote on Obamacare

    I’m up late watching CNN’s surprisingly critical coverage of the party-line passage of the cloture bill on debate regarding the “health reform,” bill in the Senate. I think their ire may be coming for all the wrong reasons, (establishmentarian David Gergen is whining about how the lack of ‘bipartisanship’ in the “historic” bill defiles the nation state he worships) though I appreciate it nonetheless.  …

  • Ron Paul on Larry King Tonight!

    Tune into Larry King on CNN tonight at 9 pm ET for a health care reform debate. Ron Paul will be squaring off against the congressman with what seems to have dozens of marbles jammed in his mouth, the loveable Barney Frank. This should be a wonderful show.

  • Dr. Paul on CNN’s American Morning

    Congressman Paul was on CNN’s American Morning show today, discussing financial institutions, the bailouts and regulating business.

  • Drinking age of 21 doesn’t work

    There was a great opinion piece about the absurdities of the drinking age on CNN today by John M. Cardell.   Over the summer, I met a Danish fellow who said that dangerous college binge drinking is entirely unheard of in Denmark.  Their secret?  The drinking age is 15.  There, the phenomenon of rebellious drinking …

  • Rand and Ron Interviewed Together

    While it may be difficult to stomach the necessary GOP pandering to earn a senate seat, it’s very exciting to see a kind, gentle non-parasite like Rand Paul interviewed on CNN. Though the questioning here may be dumbed down, at least CNN was polite. (Thanks to LRC for the link)

  • CNN’s Reaction to Tax Day Protesters

    It should not surprise anyone to see left-wing commentators denigrate yesterday’s tea party protests as they have been for the past few days, but I was truly shocked to see this behavior from a supposedly unbiased news reporter on CNN. My favorite part of this “report” is at the conclusion when the reporter, describing the …
