Obama EPA Forces Company to Cut Jobs, Spend $6 million on Green Agenda
A settlement forced by the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency on a Wisconsin power company has forced an employer to prepare to cut jobs and spend millions paying for the Obama Administration’s green energy agenda. The EPA has entered into a consent decree with the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (WPS) after federal regulators alleged that two of the company’s coal-fired power plants were in violation | Read More »
Over 1,000 Educators Apply for Armed Teacher Training
The Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA) announced in a January 9 release that over 1,000 educators have applied for its partner foundation’s Armed Teacher Training Program first publicized December 20, 2012. Applications are still being accepted via online survey. “The original intent was to simply offer free firearm training to 24 teachers in order to show that teachers could be an effective deterrent to mass murder in | Read More »
Having to Choose
Louie Giglio is a Christian pastor in Atlanta. For the past two decades he has spent his time getting Christians to focus on a topic dear to me — human trafficking. That has been his calling and focus. It is a worthy cause. More than 17,000 people are smuggled into the United States each year to serve as slaves, often in the sex trade. American | Read More »
Obama’s Egregious Hypocrisy on Housing
In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act, which created the new “Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB),” an all-powerful agency vested with the power to limit the choices of consumers in financial markets, making it harder and more expensive to obtain credit. This unaccountable agency operates autonomously within the Federal Reserve and will not be subjected to congressional appropriations or oversight. Yesterday, the CFPB announced | Read More »
TN-4: Scott DesJarlais Must Go
It’s not enough to vote conservative. We need members of Congress to live the lives of conservatives. At a time when every aspect of our traditional American value system is under assault, we need strong leaders who can defend those values through word and deed. What has long distinguished our party from the Democrats is that we don’t tolerate immorality among our ranks. Adultery should | Read More »
The Real Gun Violence Problem
Piers Morgan has been in the news a lot lately with his interviews on gun control. He’s made it his cause of late. He interviewed my friend Larry Pratt a couple of weeks ago and really attacked Larry. The other night he interviewed that conspiracy crank Alex Jones and many conservatives and gun owners have lamented a perception that Alex Jones will become the face | Read More »
Hasta la vista, Hilda! Homage Paid As Obama’s Union-Backed Labor Secretary Packs It In
Although she was never apparently a union member herself, one of union bosses’ best friends in the Obama administration, ethically-challenged Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, announced her resignation on Wednesday.

Breaking: Hilda Solis has resigned as Secretary of Labor.
Pretty much out of nowhere: as of an hour ago CNN was reporting that the White House was touting Hilda Solis as a mark of its diversity. Mind you, they were doing so as part of a post about how Barack Obama’s Cabinet is becoming, and I quote CNN here, ‘a boys club.’ At any rate, this was and is very much a surprise, so | Read More »
Staring Down the Schoolyard Bully
What a difference a year makes when it comes to the attitude of Republicans regarding the debt ceiling. In 2011, Republican leaders spent the incipient months of the debt ceiling fight publicly stating that they would ultimately raise the debt ceiling. They cloddishly communicated to the Democrats the reality that they would never engage in brinkmanship by declining to raise the debt ceiling after Tim | Read More »
Do It For America
Neal Boortz is one of the most popular talk radio hosts in the country. I’m proud to guest host for him when he is gone. January 18, 2013, is Neal’s last day on the air, after which time I will begin in earnest harassing Rush Limbaugh to let me be his guest host. Heck, I’d even change my name to Mark. Boortz bought some really | Read More »
Fact-Checking Matt Damon’s ‘Promised Land’
“Promised Land”, Matt Damon’s anti-fracking propaganda flick, is short on science, short on industry knowledge, and geographically confused.

Remember Texas State House Republicans: Joe Straus Isn’t Your Friend
With the vote for Texas House Speaker soon, it is important to remind Texas State House Republicans that current Speaker Joe Straus is neither their friend nor really one of them. In fact, as we reported back in November, RedState has uncovered never-before-seen, profanity-laden e-mails between senior staff and legislative lieutenants of Texas’ liberal GOP House Speaker Joe Straus demonstrating disrespect for, and even hostility towards, grassroots activists and conservative lawmakers. Here again is that information.

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!
Life in DC can be tough, especially when you are stuck playing second fiddle to Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Fellow Tennessee Republican Rep. Diane Black found that out last week as the new 113th Congress kicked off and she raced to introduce a pro-life bill that would defund Planned Parenthood. Unfortunately for Black, she learned her “Jan Brady lesson” the hard way as Blackburn | Read More »
We Need an Activist House GOP
In the field of politics, you either drive the narrative or become a victim of the narrative. Unfortunately, for most of the 112th Congress, the GOP-controlled House abdicated their power and became a victim of the political narrative driven by Obama and the Democrat Senate. Over the past two years, the House has been in recess almost every other week. Additionally, a large chunk of | Read More »
Two-Faced Union Bosses Help Shape Obama’s Attack On 2nd Amendment
Presuming that Obama and his union cronies are aligned, AFL-CIO boss Trumka’s involvement in the gun control discussion does not bode well for America’s 2nd Amendment.
