Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not
This really isn’t news. I mean they are Democrats. And boycotting American allies is just how they roll. Politico does the stenography job for the White House in a story titled Democrats might skip Benjamin Netanyahu speech Dozens of House Democrats are privately threatening to skip the March 3 address, according to lawmakers and aides, in what’s become the lowest point of a relationship between | Read More »
Rand Paul and Pandering to the Paranoid
Part of the problem with the Internet age is that it’s difficult to have anything approaching a nuanced discussion anymore. This is especially true when virtually everyone, regardless of their intellect, expertise, or judgment, has access to a repository of perfectly reasonable-sounding people who will say anything. If you type “are vaccines safe” into your preferred Internet search engine, you will find that there are | Read More »
Green Card Harry and The EB-5 Program
The Cronies Are Coming! World News Videos | ABC World News Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 11% represents everything that Las Vegas, Nevada symbolizes to an absolute, pristine perfection. He is loud, tacky, garish, disingenuous, malicious, mobbed-up, preys on his country like an intestinal parasite, is hateful to those with whom he disagrees and believes he is utterly exempt | Read More »
VENGEANCE AGAINST ISIS: Jordan Executes Terrorists, Including Female Wannabe Suicide Bomber al-Rishawi
Good. In the predawn hours Wednesday, Jordan executed two al Qaeda in Iraq-associated prisoners by hanging, in response to the brutal slaying of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh yesterday. One of the two jihadis executed was would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, who is the woman that was going to be exchanged for al-Kaseasbeh. After the murder of al-Kaseasbeh, Jordan quickly vowed revenge for his death. | Read More »
What About the Military
While in Iowa for Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 77%‘s Freedom Summit, RedState asked the 2016 Presidential candidates about the U.S. military. In particular, we asked them what the future military should look like and also how the military will need to balance cyber-war, Islamic extremists, and traditional military threats. Here’s what they had to say.
Wow. @ed_kilgore & the Washington Monthly pretend that Scott Walker may not have gotten death threats.
Now, I get that the Washington Monthly is a political stroke magazine for progressives. That’s fine. But even the sad fetishists that read it are still actual human beings.

Obama administration punts on enforcing obamacare. Again. #obamacare
So the White House is, yet again, delaying a critical part of Obamacare. This monstrosity has far too many critical parts, you know what I mean?

John Judis: About That Inevitable, Permanent Majority for the Democrats
A few days ago, John Judis, the co-author of the book on every liberal’s bookshelf, The Emerging Democratic Majority, took to the pages of National Journal to write an article called The Emerging Republican Advantage. At the time, some commentators, including me, hailed the onset of an enduring Democratic majority. And the arguments in defense of this view did seem to be backed by persuasive evidence. | Read More »
RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings: Week 1
Hello and welcome to a new and (hopefully) weekly segment at RedState, the Weekly 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings. Each week on Tuesday, I will be compiling this list based on a “secret sauce” formula that I made up that factors in polling data, fundraising information, news items of the week, organization/staff readiness, and more subjective things like “momentum” and “buzz,” which don’t really exist | Read More »
Chris Christie embraces Obama’s slur of pro-life movement
Obama and his followers have long been fond of slurring the pro-life movement by saying pro-lifers don’t care about children or people once they’ve been born. This, of course, is patent nonsense. If you look at the organizations and the people who support the larger pro-life movement you generally find the same organizations and people actively involved in adoption, foster care, elder care, helping the | Read More »
With growing tensions in the Middle East, terrorism, American reassessments of overseas adventures, economic issues at home, and so much more, the media has decided this week’s most pressing issue is vaccinations. In 2008, Barack Obama declared the science of vaccinations inconclusive. On Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Ernst said “I’m not going stand up here and dispense medical advice,” Earnest said, according to | Read More »
Tech at Night: Having attacked common sense, FCC now shoots at Federalism
Common sense is gone at FCC, so now they want to chuck the Constitution, too. You see, some states have wisely prohibited their cities from implementing socialized Internet access, aka ‘municipal Internet’ or ‘free WiFi’. FCC wants to meddle and force-legalize socialized Internet nationwide. “What, me worry about the Constitution?” – Tom “Alfred E.” Wheeler, FCC Chairman?
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declares Feb 2nd Chris Kyle Day
Governor Greg Abbott has declared that, going forward, February 2nd should be known as “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas, honoring one of the state’s, and America’s , greatest modern military heroes.

It was only | Read More »
I’m done with the Super Bowl. The leftists have won.
There are a lot of folks who watch the Super Bowl for the experience and could care less who wins the game. It’s about the party, the time with friends and family, and just to have fun. Super Bowl 49 (or whatever the Roman numerals are) slammed the brakes on that experience and brought it to a screeching halt. The TV ads are one of | Read More »
Obama’s Budget Indicates that He Loves Shutdowns
The annual budgetary kabuki dance between Obama and Congress has become almost comical in its predictability. Obama submits a budget, usually late, that has no hope in the world of even passing with Democrat support. Republicans force Democrats to actually vote on Obama’s budget. They refuse, no budget gets passed, the government gets funded on a continuing resolution. As a result, every several months, there’s | Read More »
