Senator Cornyn Needs to K.I.S.S. This Idea Goodbye
I appreciate Senator John Cornyn working on a bipartisan solution to stem the border crisis, but I do not understand why people in Washington can’t remember to K.I.S.S. their policy proposals — Keep It Simple Stupid. We cannot just secure our border, we must have a comprehensive plan. We cannot work on our healthcare, we must have comprehensive socialism. Washington, not “we” to be fair, | Read More »
CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives
I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what | Read More »
Rep Sean Maloney (D, New York-18) decided that FAA regulations don’t apply to Rep. Sean Maloney.
It’s not that Rep. Maloney decided that the law, indeed, is stupid… New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s wedding last month had it all — celebrities, fireworks and even a small drone used to shoot a spectacular wedding video. But the Federal Aviation Administration prohibits the commercial use of drones like the miniature helicopter that gathered the breathtaking aerial footage of Maloney’s June 21 wedding | Read More »
Senate Democrats Want to Give Priority to Their “Religion”
Two weeks ago, in a narrow ruling that won’t affect the vast majority of Americans, the U.S. Supreme Court simply applied the provisions of the bipartisan Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which protects Americans from being forced by government to violate central tenets of their faith. This Hobby Lobby ruling was little more than a straightforward application of a law reflecting the common sense of a | Read More »
So, the Veterans Administration was off bugging people. …As in, monitoring their communications.
Remember: the Veterans Administration was held up as a shining beacon by the Left on how to do socialized medicine. Or should I say ‘Socialist?’ – Because this story is certainly, ah, evocative: As the hearing stretched into the night, [House Veterans Affairs Chairman Jeff] Miller told the committee about a visit some committee staff took to the Philadelphia Regional Office earlier this month. As | Read More »
8 Myths In The Immigration Debate
The ongoing debate over immigration, and over illegal immigration in particular, is one of the most acrimonious – usually needlessly so – in our politics. It divides both parties, though it’s no secret that the divisions within the GOP on this issue are far worse. And all sides in this debate are guilty of peddling myths and rhetoric that do more harm to the debate | Read More »
Rand Paul is no Ronald Reagan
Yesterday we took note of the spat between Texas Governor Rick Perry and freshman Senator Rand Paul over Paul’s foreign policy. Needless to say the exchange wasn’t very enlightening because Paul, unable to either offend his father’s sycophants or describe a foreign policy for the only superpower relegated himself to attacking positions Perry had not taken (e.g. Perry has not advocated sending troops to | Read More »
Six Californias: A Democrat-favoring idea that won’t go anywhere
The proposal to split California into six states has gotten enough signatures to make the ballot. Assuming there are no irregularities with the signatures, this means it should be on the ballot for a vote in November.
I doubt the idea will get anywhere though, because it’s one of those rare things that’s bad for Republicans and for Democrat interest groups.

The Mississippi Election Fraud Story Isn’t About Charles C. Johnson
Over the course of the last few weeks a lot of ink has been spilled on twitter and other outlets with regard to the Mississippi GOP Senate run-off and subsequent allegations of voter irregularities. I reported the original allegations of massive vote buying for Cochran in the run-off election here at RedState with an audio interview with Rev. Fielder of Mississippi. That same evening Charles | Read More »
Republican Mike Collins’ Campaign Staff Endorse Democrats Hijacking a Republican Primary
Mike Collins is the son of former Congressman Mac Collins and is trying very hard to grab his dad’s old congressional district. He’s even willing to use Democrats to do it. In the last two weeks, as I’ve previously reported, Democrats have begun receiving absentee ballot applications in the mail encouraging them to vote for Mike Collins. There has been a question about who is | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Return. Go home, John McCain.
Between the Independence Day weekend, and being sick most of last week, I missed quite a few Tech at Night installments. so many in fact that I just ran out of time putting together Friday’s. So now I have 36 links in my queue sitting in front of me, so I’ll make tonight’s ‘main essay’ simple and to the point.
Arizona needs to start doing something about John McCain, because his love affair with regulation is just going way too far.

Chris Christie Heads to Iowa. So Do Conservatives.
Chris Christie is headed to Iowa today. Whenever any politician heads to Iowa, the media starts buzzing about Presidential prospects. Just in case, the Judicial Crisis Network is going to greet the Governor with advertisements. There are, believe it or not, conservatives who have tried to give Chris Christie the benefit of the doubt on many issues. But one area where even those conservative get | Read More »
Les Miserables – The Tragedy of Poverty and The Clintons
“You have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy. Bill has worked really hard. And it’s been amazing to me. He’s worked very hard.” | Read More »

Rand Paul’s dangerously wrong and dangerous foreign policy
There is a spat going on between Texas Governor Rick Perry and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. The latest round has been set off by Governor Perry’s op-ed in the Washington Post headlined Isolationist policies make the threat of terrorism even greater: As a veteran, and as a governor who has supported Texas National Guard deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I can understand the emotions behind | Read More »
