Greg Sargent Inadvertently Proves the Halbig Plaintiffs’ Case
Partisan hack and Washington Post writer Greg Sargent has allegedly found a silver bullet that proves that the Halbig decision is erroneous and that the Halbig plaintiffs don’t have a leg to stand on. The gist of Sargent’s point is that an earlier version of the Obamacare bill had language that explicitly provided for subsidies for beneficiaries on Federal exchanges, even though the final version of | Read More »
Obama Administration Energy Policies Destroying Middle Class
EPA head Gina McCarthy claims the Obama administration is not engaged in a “war on coal.” Nevertheless, the mounting evidence is fairly conclusive: Not only is there a war on coal, but the Obama administration is winning . . . and the collateral damage includes middle and working-class families throughout the country. A brutal story last week in the Washington Post (of all publications) introduced readers to victims of | Read More »
Hungary limps toward fascism
In a speech to his party’s faithful, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán seemed to signal a course that would not only make Hungary’s continued membership in the EU problematic but would result in a government that looked to Moscow for leadership rather than Brussels and one that would be ruled more in the model of fascism that Vladimir Putin has installed in Russia than as a | Read More »
Mailbag: Who Will Speak for the SATANISTS?!
RedState doesn’t shy away from religion when discussing politics. We understand that free people must be allowed to form their own opinions and that those opinions will likely be informed by their individual religious beliefs. Those of us on the Front Page of RedState also believe, to some degree or another, that our nation was founded by men influenced by the Jewish and Christian faiths. | Read More »
2006 and the GOP’s attempt to flog impeachment as a base-motivation issue.

New CBS/NYT Poll Shows Possible GOP Senate Wave Forming
A new CBS/NYT poll has been released which is thus far the most exhaustive simultaneous battleground poll that has been taken this election season. It shows Republicans holding all their “close” seats, with McConnell leading Grimes 50-46 and Perdue leading Nunn 50-44. Obviously, these races are still very competitive and could flip although I think that as time goes along Perdue will pull away from | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ State of the State (and a couple territories) Primaries
July has been a strange month politically. With virtually no primaries scheduled, we have been left with watching the debate over whether or not to begin impeachment proceedings for President Obama, lamenting over what to do with the current influx of illegal immigrants on the border, rooting for Israel in spite of Kerry, and waiting to see if Chris McDaniel will prevail in his fight | Read More »
Mainstream Media “Fall Over Each Other to Support” Hamas Terrorist Propaganda
It has been well documented that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has been intentionally firing thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians while using Palestinian civilians as human shields, basing their attacks in hospitals, and hiding their rockets in schools.
Despite these grave war crimes and violation of any semblance of humanity, the mainstream media has bought into Hamas’s propaganda campaign. The terrorists want to be viewed as the victims, and somehow the media is buying into that narrative hook line and sinker.Read More »
Corruption at Export-Import Bank alleged
There are days when it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed. This is one of those for the Export-Import Bank. The Bank is already in jeopardy of seeing its charter expire in September because of its record of corporate welfare, the top 10 clients of the Bank receive 93% of all the money it dishes out, and the incoming House majority leader has | Read More »
The Ridiculous Handwringing of the Overthinking GOP
Byron York tells us the GOP is worried they may get their strategy wrong in 2014. Back in 1998, you see, they made it about Bill Clinton and got spanked. They expected to pick up seats, but they lost seats. But in this entire piece from Byron, there is one word missing — “Gallup”. Republicans in 1998 faced an incumbent President with popularity above 60% | Read More »
Iranian General Wants to Annihilate Israel as Obama Works on Nuclear Deal

The Moronic “Inversions” Drumbeat Grows Louder
Somewhere in the bowels of the festering Democrat political machine, some focus group automaton has decided that “closing the inversions tax loophole” is a message that can save Democrats from destruction in 2014. By way of background, America has an astronomically high corporate taxation rate compared to the rest of the world; so what some American companies are doing is merging with overseas companies and | Read More »
The Hamas Tunnels and How They Sparked Conflict in Israel and Gaza
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Jim Phillips to discuss the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza, the tough PR challenge facing Israel and the complex network of underground tunnels built by Hamas.Read More »
Michelle Nunn: A Consultant’s Golem Coming for the Jews
A golem is a being of inanimate material magically given anthropomorphic abilities. Back when I was a political consultant I would tell candidates that they were lumps of clay to be molded. In a memo discovered by National Review, Michelle Nunn has all the makings of not being her own woman, but rather being a consultant’s golem. Not only a golem, but one whose organization | Read More »
Tech at Night: Just what are Snowden and Putin up to?
Last time in Tech at Night I linked to stories about Edward Snowden and Russia in suspicious and/or hostile positions with respect to the Online Privacy crowd that celebrates Snowden.
The hits just keep on coming though, so at this point we have to ask: Just what are Snowden and his paymaster Putin up to?Read More »
50 Shades of Derp – Voxsplaining* Sure Beats Having To Think
Image Credit: Sam Tsang ”There’s an old Greek proverb. A fish rots from the head down.” – Former Governor Mike Dukakis. To Derp is to die. It’s really just that simple. The problem is that derps are even more simple. They are typically wonkish technocrats educated far beyond their intelligence or imagination at some overrated PC diploma factory. They typically have a set of beliefs | Read More »

Federal Highway Trust Fund Pays for Bike Paths in Wis.
A looming shortfall in the federal highway trust fund threatens to dramatically cut the amount of money states get from the federal government for road and highway maintenance. But even as some policymakers examine the possibility of raising taxes to boost revenues, a review of federally-funded transportation projects in Wisconsin finds that federal money has been spent on things like bicycle paths, archeological research, and | Read More »
US Chamber of Commerce is not winning
The US Chamber of Commerce has for years viewed the GOP as its personal political party. Sure they supported the now-extinct “Blue Dog Democrats” but when most of them disappeared in the maelstrom of 2010 they were left with GOP candidates and communists. Unfortunately for the Chamber, the GOP caucus has been getting progressively more conservative each year. And not merely conservative but populist. This | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s Perversion of Piety: A Page Out of the Proof-texting Playbook
Nancy Pelosi’s Biblical proof-texting reveals her inherent dishonesty and willingness to pervert piety for political ends. Her recent claims prevent non-Christians from knowing the Triune God and his redemptive plan outlined throughout Genesis to Revelation.Read More »
