The War on Poverty: failure redefined as success

On the 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty,” Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation posted a devastating after-action report pronouncing it “a colossal flop” at the Daily Signal: Since its beginning, U.S. taxpayers have spent $22 trillion on Johnson’s War on Poverty (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusting for inflation, that’s three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. | Read More »

Nationalism “Yes!” Separatism “No!”

The Scots rose up yet again against the oppressors from London. They held a vote to decide whether or not to dissolve their ties with the United Kingdom yesterday. The bag-pipes wailed and the claymores were sharpened. In Glasgow they appeared set to Caber Toss about 3 centuries of membership in the UK and strike out on their own. Alas, me Laddies! When the votes | Read More »

#TXGov: Wendy Davis asks Greg Abbott to ignore a law she voted for

If you were hoping for a doozy of a debate Friday night, the Texas Gubernatorial debate proved to be a wonderful experience for us all, and definitely a learning experience as Wendy Davis was shut down in an argument she was making, then proceeded to lose her mind. In case you missed it, here’s the highlight: Davis: Will you drop your appeals in this case? | Read More »

Why The Mary Burke “Plagiarism” Story Matters

Andrew Kaczynski at Buzzfeed has a detailed analysis of how Wisconsin’s Democratic candidate for governor, Mary Burke, “plagiarized” the “jobs plan” on her website from three prior Democratic gubernatorial candidates. As Moe Lane noted earlier today, the really hilarious part of this story is that two of these three candidates lost, and the third won in blue Delaware in 2008. But there’s another reason why | Read More »

Joe Biden praises Bob Packwood at Democrat women’s conference

Joe Biden has had a tough week. Earlier in the week he used the anti-Semitic slur “Shylock” to refer to unethical bankers and was forced to issue an apology. Today he was speaking at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership forum and decided to wax nostalgic about how the Republican party used to be: According to attendees, Biden singled out former Sen. Bob Packwood of Oregon as | Read More »

Ninth Circuit agrees school can ban American flag

Yesterday, the US Ninth Circuit confirmed a February decision by a panel of that court that school officials can forbid students who are American citizens from wearing American flag themed clothing to school because of the threats made against those students (see earlier RedState coverage here and here). Rejecting free speech arguments from parents, Republican lawmakers and conservative groups, a federal appeals court on Wednesday refused | Read More »

The dishonesty of assault weapon laws

Last week an op-ed from left wing “investigative jounalism” non-profit, ProPublica appeared in the New York Times. Surprisingly, it laid out the fraudulent nature of the legal attacks on “assault weapons” and showed the actual damage it is doing to the reduction of attacks committed with the use of firearms. Over the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over | Read More »

The GOP’s Era of No Feelings

A look at almost all the polling shows that this is supposed to be the GOP’s year. The Republican Party has everything to gain – control of the Senate, greater control of the House, an effective means of stopping the President Barack Obama’s agenda. It is difficult – though not entirely impossible – to imagine the GOP not meeting at least their goal for the Senate. | Read More »
