The Surprising Adventures of Baron Obamahausen
Sitting in Middle Georgia tonight, the snow poured down muting all the sounds outside. I did not watch the President’s State of the Union. I read the transcript. I had read — not skimmed it — before the President had even gotten to “My fellow Americans.”I smelled an awful stench as I read through the speech. At first I thought the speech must be in | Read More »
The Tea Party Response to the State of the Union
Mike Lee has the honor of delivering the Tea Party response to the State of the Union tonight. It’ll be far better than the Republican one, I assure you of that.You can watch it right here at RedState too.
My Fellow Americans . . .
The President of the United States will address a joint session of the United States Congress tonight at 9:00 p.m. I am not sure any of us even need to watch it. Most of us read Das Kapital in school. Consider this an open thread.
Hiding Behind Euphemisms and Terms
The response to my thank you note to Greta Van Susteren has been a fascinating study in the comfort people take behind euphemisms and terms.”Outrageous,” “graphic,” “over the top,” and “hyperbolic” have all been used today to describe my thank you. Why? Because instead of using the word “abortion” to describe that which Wendy Davis supports, I actually explained what that procedure is.Good luck trying | Read More »
Why Does John Kasich Keep Lying About Obamacare?
Governor John Kasich keeps misrepresenting what the Obamacare Medicaid expansion is and how it works, because Ohio’s press doesn’t know — or care — to report that Kasich is not telling the truth.

This increase will only apply to new workers on government contracts and will happen over time.He is doing it by Executive Order.This will affect other workers whose pay is set through union contracts based on the prevailing wage for federal contracts.

Leave Us Alone
Tonight, Barack Obama will stand before the Parliament of Whores in Washington, D.C. with Chuckles and the Orange Man behind him and, in more ways than one, say, “Ask now what you can do for your government, but rather ask what your government can do for you.” You know what the government can do for me? Leave me the hell alone. They can’t get us | Read More »
A Very Sincere Thank You to @Gretawire
Greta Van Sustern wishes you to know I’m a creepy jerk. She does not know who I am and thinks no one should listen to me. I appreciate her letting someone she’s never heard of who she thinks should not be listened to live rent free in her head.But I must sincerely thank her.Wendy Davis believes it is perfectly acceptable to crack open a child’s | Read More »
Lonely Feminist Who Hates Motherhood Tries Again
From the diaries… This weekend, people around the internet, including me, pushed back against a post by a blogger named Amy Glass, who wrote that motherhood was an easy and worthless decision that prevents women from being all they can be. Today I find she has responded to the responses, and she just cant help but put her foot in her mouth again. First, she | Read More »
The Farm Bill Boondoggle
Some things will never change in Washington. And this week’s deal on the Farm/Food Stamp bill is a perfect example of Washington’s recalcitrance to conservative reforms. After months of a protracted K Street food fight, the majority of the lobbyists appear to have brought home enough bacon and have settled on a deal. Throughout the week you will find headlines heralding the bipartisan agreement to | Read More »
I did not watch the Golden Globes this year. I did not watch the Grammys. I am not sure if I will watch the State of the Union address. Why bother? A thin skinned amateur who has been in office six years and still can’t grasp how to do his job will stand before an even more thin skinned Parliament of Whores and tell them | Read More »
Aaron Gardner Comes On Board
As you are probably aware, Salem Communications recently purchased RedState from Eagle Publishing. One of the first things I begged of my new corporate overlords was a new right hand at RedState. I’ve been without for a while. I get several thousand emails a day — and that does not include spam. A chunk of it is from the contact email list. I do my | Read More »
Congressional Black Caucus unhappy with Obama judicial appointments
The Hill’s Mike Lillis, reports that leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) plan to “publicly rebuke” President Obama because of the “lack of diversity’ in his federal judicial appointments.” It’s hard to understand the CBC’s complaint. According to Freddie Allen, Obama’s judicial appointments have resulted in a higher rate of Black judges confirmed than any other president in history. Research compiled by the Alliance for Justice, demonstrated that so far | Read More »
Obama’s NLRB Does UAW’s Bidding In Chattanooga
You’re not really shocked by this, are you?
In a rather unsurprising announcement last week, the National Labor Relations Board’s Office of the General Counsel–which is headed by the former general counsel for the International Union of Operating Engineers, Richard Griffin–chose to dismiss VW employees’ allegations that the United Auto Workers and VW, through its German union, had violated the rights of VW’s employees in Chattanooga.
