IRS Hires Same Firm that Botched the Obamacare Rollout

If you need any indication of the IRS’s administration of Obamacare is going to go, look no further than this story. Last Friday, it was announced that the agency had ...

Congressional GOP Seeks to Achieve Success Through Cowardice

Over at RealClearPolitics, liberal Bill Scher has some advice for the GOP for how they can grow their majority. Like most of these insipid pieces from liberals, it helpfully suggests that Republicans will have much more success if they ignore demands from their base about… well, basically everything. It’s always precious when a member of the party who just got trounced offers advice to the | Read More »

The Iowa Corral

RedState assisted in sponsoring ‘s event in Iowa this past weekend. I did not go, but made sure to pay attention to what was going on and who said what. As I have previously written, this is the most substantive field of Republican contenders since 1980. The number of Governors, Senators, and others who are running gives the GOP a deeper bench than any the | Read More »

A Logical Consequence

In the Politico, David Rogers laments there are no rules now in Washington. Everybody is doing there own thing. Well of course they are. For the last four years, Democrats have championed the President more and more going it alone. They have watched the President overstep the boundaries of his authority on Obamacare changes, on amnesty, and virtually anything else that suits him. The Democrats | Read More »

Russian official warns sanctions of “brink of war”

Russia’s elites have been feeling the bite of US sanctions coupled the the near halving of the price per barrel of oil. As the West starts to look at Russia more as a gigantic criminal enterprise rather than as a nation-state, everyone is becoming more comfortable with reducing economic ties to them. Naturally, those Russians at the top of the criminal oligopoly that runs Russia | Read More »

Gov. Paul LePage (R, Maine) wants to impose property taxes on colleges, nonprofits, other Democratic party affiliates.

I don’t know whether this is demonic, inspired, or both: “A sweeping proposal to cut taxes for Maine families and businesses could upend one of the most widely accepted practices in the country: the property-tax exemption for nonprofit organizations… A recent budget plan by Republican Gov. Paul LePage calling for an overhaul of individual, corporate and sales taxes also would make Maine the first state in the | Read More »

Iran Drafting Law to Allow Scientists to Intensify Nuclear Enrichment

One of the big falsehoods President Obama told during his State of the Union concerned Iran’s nuclear program. He said, “[W]e’ve halted the progress of [Iran's] nuclear program and reduced its stockpile of nuclear material.” It’s a claim that was so egregiously wrong that even the Washington Post’s  Fact Checker Glenn Kessler was forced to give it three Pinocchios. The National Review‘s Fred Fleitz puts it a little more succinctly: | Read More »

Obama’s Strategy to Combat ISIS Still Doesn’t Look Good

During his State of the Union speech on last Tuesday, one of the few proposals he made that I could approve of was his push for an Authorization of Military Force against ISIS. It’s a proposal that is long overdue. However, it unsurprisingly appears like we should not get our hopes up too much. On this past Thursday, the administration held a classified briefing with | Read More »

University professor criticizes Islam, college dipsticks go bonkers

A couple of weeks ago a professor at Vanderbilt University  became the center of controversy. Carol Swain, professor of political science and law, wrote what should be a very non-controversial op-ed in the Nashville Tennessean: As Miller has so often stated, Islam has a problem with the West. Islam will never understand the freedoms that we live and die to preserve. If America is to | Read More »
