Lindsay Graham: House Benghazi report is “crap”
Much of the left is crowing about a report issued by the House Select Intelligence Committee under Congressman (R-AL)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’R000575′ ] on Benghazi. As might be expected from a supine committee that wallows in the sweet essence of comity they came off looking like Sergeant Schultz asserting that they know nothing.

How Terry McAuliffe failed to impose Medicaid expansion on Virginia.
This Washington Post article on Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe’s futile attempt to sneak Medicaid expansion past his own state legislature is fascinating, but it has several flaws in it. There are things that are not mentioned enough, things that are mentioned too much, and at least one thing that is not mentioned at all. Unsurprising, given that the WaPo remains a Democratic cheerleader; but still | Read More »
Should you have any doubts about Saturday night’s opening skit on Saturday Night Live being damaging to the President, you need look no further than the Washington Post, which felt the need to fact check the skit. Liberals are in an uproar squealing like stuck pigs. Their own network, NBC, dared ridicule the President’s overreach. Back in February, SNL’s executive producer, Lorne Michaels, said liberals | Read More »
How Many Lies Have Democrats Told To Sabotage The War on Terror?
Start with Obama’s claim that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) is not Islamic. Say what? In fact, the so-called war on terror is clearly a war that Islamic jihadists have declared on us. Yet Obama is so hostile to this war that even the subterfuge “war on terror” was too much for him and he purged it from official government statements | Read More »

Stop US funded abortions. Reinstate the Mexico City policy
As we prepare for an orgy of appropriations in the twilight hours of the 113th Congress, one of the bills under consideration is the State and Foreign Operations Appropriation bill. This might seem to be an arcane place for a battle over the Right to Life to take place, but it is happening and it is important. President Reagan established what is know as the Mexico | Read More »
The ‘You won’t believe what SNL did in this skit about Executive Orders!’ Sunday Open Thread.
No, really, you won’t. Trust me on this: it’s like it’s from an alternate universe, or something. You’ll keep waiting for them to take a slap at Republicans because we’re unhappy about using executive orders in this fashion, but they never do. It’s almost unsettling. Open thread.

It’s Not What He Did, But How He Did It
Most of you are opposed to what Barack Obama did, but if you step back for a minute you will see it is not what he did, but how he did it. What Obama did is unpopular with a majority of Americans, but he is right that what he did has bipartisan approval in Congress. Nonetheless, the House of Representatives chose not to act in | Read More »
IRS Scandal: Investigators Uncover Lois Lerner’s E-mails in Data
Here at Redstate, we’ve already talked about how Lois Lerner’s assertion that her and her colleague’s e-mails were lost when their hard drives were “mysteriously” destroyed is a load of bunk. We also know that the e-mails probably exist in the government’s back-up system, although the relevant bureaucrats are just too lazy to go through the files and find them. Now, the Treasury Inspector General | Read More »
Help The Poor. Block the Amnesty
