Two More Things About John Boehner’s Lawsuit
It’s worth noting two more things about John Boehner’s opinion piece at CNN regarding his pending lawsuit. He writes: in my view, the President has not faithfully executed the laws when it comes to a range of issues, including his health care law, energy regulations, foreign policy and education. Note that he does not mention immigration. Second, I don’t hold it against him that what | Read More »
WaPo bias: Children of gay couples are “happier, healthier”
The gay family with kids as Leave It To Beaver is a constant drumbeat throbbing, kept alive through media bias and editorial cherry-picking.
Today’s WaPo headline reads “Children of same-sex couples are happier and healthier than peers, research shows” and the lede is:
Children of same-sex couples fare better when it comes to physical health and social well-being than children in the general population, according to researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia.
Except that the study isn’t about healthier or happier children at all.Read More »
No, an Obama Presidential Library / outhouse float is not racist. …*Duh*.

The House GOP Should Man Up Instead of Resorting to Political Theater in the Courts
John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt “John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt ” John Boehner | Read More »

The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America In Congress, July 4, 1776 When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren, The Cursus Honorum, and Ballgames That Are Rigged
I may well be guilty of a loathsome, scurvy and iniquitous sin. I have voiced profound intellectual disrespect for both the academic efforts of Ward Churchill and the economic ideas (if any) of Senator Elizabeth Warren. Heck, I don’t even like Dan Snyder! That’s how bigoted I am against fake Indians. I guess we all remain sinners who fall short of the glory of God. | Read More »
Liberty: the road not taken
The Left’s cherished new idea is that if someone doesn’t give you something for “free,” such as birth control, they are “denying your access” to it. That’s clearly absurd on the most basic common sense level, the kind of thinking a reasonably clever child would shred in a matter of moments, but it’s becoming something like a religious imperative for liberals – a new commandment | Read More »
White House debating whether to ally with… God help us… Syria.
You have got to be… kidding me. There’s a battle raging inside the Obama administration about whether the United States ought to push away from its goal of toppling Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and into a de facto alliance with the Damascus regime to fight ISIS and other Sunni extremists in the region. As President Obama slowly but surely increases the U.S. military presence on the ground | Read More »
Obama offers electoral advice to the GOP
One of the great psychological benefits bestowed upon sociopaths is their inability to accept responsibility for their own actions. Every failure is because of the treachery, ineptitude, or incompetence of other. I wrote about that recently in a post titled Obama blames GOP for his failed presidency. His idea of cooperation is the GOP doing what he wants. It never crosses his mind that most | Read More »
Remember Mississippi, and FIGHT. LIKE. HELL. in Kansas
Conservatives, this is your call to arms, and Kansas is the battlefield. The truth of the Mississippi Betrayal hurts. GOP party bosses have declared an all-out war on conservatives and betrayed our Republican Party itself in the process. The GOP establishment in general and the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) in particular have some serious explaining to do. America is descending into a struggle, less | Read More »
Court Calls Out Angry Atheists for Near Supernatural Claims Against the Ground Zero Cross
From day one, angry atheists have made outlandish claims about the Ground Zero Cross – the two intersecting steal beams in the shape of a cross that was found in the wreckage of the World Trade Center following 9/11.
Not only have they made these absurd claims in public (calling it “offensive and repugnant”), they’ve made them in federal court (claiming it gives them “mental pain and anguish”). Now a federal appeals court is calling them out and demanding they provide a rational explanation as to how their “offense” constitutes a constitutional claim.Read More »

The Indifferent Leader
Obama has had a very bad year at the Supreme Court. As catalogued by Reason, the President has suffered a series of stunning and mostly unanimous rebukes at the hands of SCOTUS (including the two Justices he appointed) in connection with executive branch overreach. Predictably, Obama has responded to this rebuke by going on the stump and swearing to do even more than he has | Read More »
Gov. Nikki Haley Will Be There
The time is running out for you to meet Nikki Haley. Governor Haley was at the very first RedState Gathering. We rallied after that Gathering to get her elected. And we’ve been supporting her ever since. Gov. Haley has also been to just about every RedState Gathering. This year she is in the middle of her re-election campaign. But she wants to meet you guys | Read More »
Kill Campus Tyranny With FIRE
To properly understand the true commitment that the Post-modern American University makes to robust, open debate and diversity of thought, it helps to remember what happened when a Women’s Studies Professor at University of California Santa Barbara encountered an anti-abortion protest on her campus. The Professor, Mireille Miller-Young, noticed that 16 Year-Old Girl, Thrin Short, of Survivors of The Abortion Holocaust, was holding up a | Read More »
