The ObamaCare of the Airwaves?
The Federal Communications Commission needs spectrum and its Chairman Tom Wheeler has come up with a plan. He has proposed a so-called “reverse auction” in which the Commission will establish a price it is willing to pay for “blocks” of spectrum and those broadcasters who are interested in selling will unload some of their spectrum rights. As the Hill reports, “In the auction, the FCC will buy back | Read More »
Why I’m beginning to disagree with Sarah Palin about the impeachment of Barack Obama
I love Sarah Palin, but I’m beginning to disagree with her on impeachment. Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says the following about impeachment: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. The House of Representatives has the sole power to | Read More »
In case you hadn’t noticed ( or forgotten);Thad Cochran is in line to be the next chair of the Senate Appropriations committee
Much has been written about the contested Mississippi GOP primary. How Haley Barbour and the GOPe..along with their K street pals… will do anything to hang onto power, etc…. As one who has followed the primary in Mississippi carefully for months, I suddenly realized that one simple fact has rarely, if ever been mentioned: If Thad Cochran is re-elected, and the GOP takes control of | Read More »
Marita Noon: 2007–a great year for growing bad legislation like the ethanol mandate
Compared to 2007, several things are different today. The big one is the economy. We, as a country, were still living large in 2007. We were also still dependent on oil from overseas and our purchases were funding terrorism. Plus, it was, then, generally believed by many that our globe was warming—and it was our fault because of burning fossil fuels. When presented with the idea of growing our gasoline, even though it might cost more, it seemed worth it—after all, what was a few cents a gallon to thumb our nose at the Middle East and save the planet?

CNN promotes Hamas while U.N. asks for more case-fires
The U.N. Security Council held a midnight session…they want an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. They wanted it on record before dawn of the Muslim holy day Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan.
The milquetoast Security Council achieved nobody’s wishes. The Palestinians want the U.N. to force Israel to withdraw, so they can restock their terror tunnels. Actually, they didn’t give a reason, so we have to assume that one since it’s what they’ve done in the past.

There are no neutral Jews, we have to take sides
I have to take sides. I can’t just say “I just want everyone to live” and hope for Kum-Bay-Ya. I can’t give in to hate or fear. I can’t engage in some fantasy where somehow everyone will learn to live with each other tomorrow. It’s not going to happen.

RSC Tried To Solve GOP’s Women Problem
Single women could be a deciding factor in the 2014 midterms. Democrats know they’re the key to keeping the majority in the Senate, so how do conservatives push back against war on women narratives? The Republican Study Committee hosted a panel about these issues facing conservative women earlier this month. The Wall Street Journal Kimberley Strassel, who moderated the panel, said reaching women voters is | Read More »

The case about marijuana
Today we see all over the news about “medical marijuana”, and all these studies touting the benefits of it. Those of you familiar with history also knows they tried the same thing with alcohol 100 years ago to end the prohibition and cigarettes 60-70 years ago. One major difference today is their reliance on cherry picked falsified “studies” that are designed with the end result | Read More »
The State of the Senate Races
With July almost over, the primaries pick up again in August. Some Senate races have not been set yet as the GOP has not chosen candidates in potentially competitive primaries in Kansas, Alaska and Minnesota. Democrats, because there are more incumbents, have fewer interesting primary races. With that in mind, it is time to see how these general election races are shaping up. I have | Read More »
A Christian Approach To Technology
In Jurassic Park, the chaos theorist played by Jeff Goldblum quipped that scientists were in such a hurry to find out if they could that they never took the time to consider whether they should when it came to resurrecting extinct dinosaurs through genetic cloning technology. The comment was quite profound as it also has considerable bearing on the application of similar technologies to the | Read More »

Obama to Honduras: No
Soup USAid For You, But Refugees Can Stay in Line
Lately, I keep hearing the words of my favorite Talking Heads song, “Well, how did I get here?” Many here on RedState are history buffs and for good reason. We have to know where we’ve been in order to chart a course forward. So yesterday, Obama admitted that he is considering a plan to grant refugee status for children in Honduras, as if that would | Read More »
