On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Andrew Marcus to discuss “Hating Breitbart,” his documentary about Andrew Breitbart, the hatred he produced among the left, and his lasting legacy.Read More »
The Spanking The Media Didn’t Cover
What else is there to do when you get beat like that, besides start calling names and politicizing Big Bird? It is time for SOMEONE to pull up and his big boy pants and get ready for round two.Read More »
Send 2016 to Undecided Voters in Swing States
Many RedState readers have seen Dinesh D’Souza’s film 2016. Our sister publication, Human Events, is today launching a project to send copies of 2016 to undecided voters in swing states. But they need your financial support to make it happen. For each donation of $20.16, Human Events will send one copy of 2016 to a self-described “undecided” voter or household of voters in Ohio, Florida, | Read More »
Tech at Night: FCC’s own snooping scandal? Also, Collins turns on Obama on cybersecurity
Remember the Google Wi-Spy Street View scandal? A seemingly-harmless survey of the country turned into a massive snooping operation, and the FTC smacked them for over 20 million dollars. Well, not only is FCC now wasting money with a survey of Internet speeds, but it turns out that the FCC program runs the risk of warrantless snooping of its own!
We need strong, reformist regulators to be appointed in the next administration to stop stuff like this.Read More »
The American Political Press’s Psycho Moment
I was too hard on Chuck Todd in my earlier post. I apologize to him for it. My point was not to brow beat Chuck Todd, but many people took it as such. I have to conclude I failed to convey the extent of my point because in focusing as I did on Chuck Todd and his remark, I overshadowed the substance of his remark. | Read More »
What To Look For In The VP Debate
Thursday’s VP debate in Louisville – Muhammad Ali’s old home town – promises to be riveting TV, even if the absence of Sarah Palin means that, unlike in 2008, it’s unlikely that the VP debate will outdraw the presidential debates for ratings. On the Republican side, expectations are running high: Paul Ryan is a master of verbal combat, and hopes are high that he can | Read More »
President Obama promises to be incompetently nasty at next debate.
I’m paraphrasing: the exact line from the ABC article was “President Obama says he was “just too polite” and that voters should expect “a little more activity” next week in round two.” How is this funny? Let me count the ways: ‘Too polite’ is not actually semantically equivalent to ‘walked into an ambush fat, dumb, and happy.’ Which is what happened. And while ‘a little | Read More »
Hollywood’s Newest Scandal
Actress Stacey Dash just dropped a bombshell. She has shocked the world. She has peed voluminously upon the pieties of the Tinseltown Apostates. She has audaciously and egregiously thought for herself, and endorsed Mitt Romney for President.
In Hollywood, they like their creativity vapidly unoriginal and their diversity homogenous. There must be blood. (Or at least a gaggle of idiots auto-beclowning on Twitter). Piers Morgan of CNN samples some of the idiots below.Read More »
Donald Rumsfeld: Obama’s Handling Of Libya “Embarrassing”
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson, Ben Domenech and Allysen Efferson are joined by Donald Rumsfeld to discuss the Obama Administration’s handling of the attack in Libya, the influence of partisan politics on their response to the attack, and the inherent tensions that exist between the State Department and the Pentagon.Read More »
U.S. With Highest Corporate Tax Rate
Well, it’s official. The socialist country of Sweden plans to cut its corporate tax rate from 26.3% to 22% to improve prospects for new jobs and investment. So where does America – the beacon of freedom – stand in the rankings of corporate tax rates? We’re dead last among industrialized nations, checking in at 35% with another 5% on average for state taxes. Yes, we | Read More »
A Look at Chuck Todd and Conspiratorial Media Incest
I got a great laugh out of this Chuck Todd near meltdown on Meet the Depressed the other day. His voice quivered in moral outrage over Jack Welch suggesting something was up with the unemployment numbers last Friday. Chuck Todd proclaimed, “What we’re doing, we’re corroding trust in our government in a way, and one time responsible people are doing to control it. And the | Read More »
The “It’s Party Time, Chumps” Tuesday Memorial Open Thread.
This may be the single best Bad Lip Reading video EVER. Particularly since there may be just the faintest sound of grinding teeth from the people who put it together. Admittedly; it’s pretty much impossibly hard for them to have made Mitt Romney look worse than Barack Obama, given that Romney spent pretty much the entire debate looking remarkably better. Open thread. Eye of the | Read More »
Gravity Hits The Obama Campaign
This is a must-read Sean Trende column on why Obama’s bandwagon strategy has demanded that he remain in the lead at every point in the campaign. I’ve been saying for months now that Obama’s fundraising in particular – and even moreso, his ability to deter Romney from raising money from business – was hugely dependent on convincing business interests that Obama’s regulators would still be | Read More »
Joe Walsh For Congress
Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) is the real deal. He is a true conservative of principle. And he will not back down. He not just votes right on these issues, as a freshman member of Congress he has led on numerous Conservative priorities including leading our balanced Budget Amendment fight. Yes there are other Conservative Members like Joe who fight the good fight, and fortunately for | Read More »
I’ve made no attempts to hide my former Democrat self, as anyone who knows me can attest. I enjoy connecting with other reformed Democrats and sharing stories of the group-think we were a part of, unbeknownst to us at the time of course. That there are so many of us is a large part of why I find it hard to resist debating Democrats today; | Read More »
Democrats Freak Out About Ohio
The Democrats are in a full on freak out over Ohio. Harry Reid is giving his Super PAC $250,000.00 to run ads attacking Josh Mandel.MoveOn.org is sending out emails rallying its members to support Democrats in Ohio.Now Senator Bennet of Colorado is sending out emails to his supporters with the subject line “Buckeye for a day.”In the email, Bennet writes: If special interest groups can | Read More »
Todd Akin Can Win. The NRSC Will Cut Off Its Nose to Spite Its Face in Missouri.
In 2010, the National Republican Senatorial Committee spent a great deal of time and energy portraying conservatives as the reason the GOP did not take back the Senate. They blamed Jim DeMint for Sharon Angle’s win, though he chose not to supporter her in the primary. They blamed Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin for Christine O’Donnell’s win, though they endorsed a week before the primary | Read More »
Left-Wing Lies About Romney’s Tax Plan
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Curtis Dubay to discuss the unfair and inaccurate analysis of Mitt Romney’s tax plan by the left-wing Tax Policy Center, what a tax plan in a Romney administration may actually look like, and whether or not we even need a federal income tax.Read More »
Tech at Night: We need to attack the core problem of state-run cyber attacks, not grow government
So, more cybersecurity. The government is starting to recognize state actors online, which makes sense given that enemies like Iran aren’t shy about it. That’s good. Recognizing fact is a prerequisite to making good policy. But I think trying to dictate to private business is the wrong idea. Huawei and ZTE may be organs of the People’s Liberation Army, which would make it a good | Read More »
The Obama Campaign Processed This Donation
Here now is the screenshot of what Barack Obama’s campaign processed as a donation to the campaign. This would not have happened had the Obama campaign taken basic steps to verify credit card information. But, as always, Team Obama relied on someone else to fix their mess — the bank. Had basic checks been implemented, this donation would have been rejected. Keep in mind that | Read More »
