Delta Airlines and the $100 Million Costs of Obamacare
Republicans in the United States House of Representatives and Senate claim they will vote to defund Obamacare, but they won’t actually fight for it. What they want to fight for is just a delay of the individual mandate. That’s it. But there is so much more that is so much more onerous about Obamacare. Delta Airlines, in a letter it prepared back in June, outlined | Read More »
SEIU’s Fast-Food Strikers May Legally Be Replaced, Perhaps Even Permanently.
They’re loud. They’re boisterous. They’re the SEIU…and they’re not as bright as they think. The fast-food workers who are being pushed by the SEIU to take to the streets in a “nationwide” strike on August 29th, as part of the SEIU’s four-year old plan to collect union dues from the fast-food industry’s 3.7 million workers, have placed themselves in a precarious position legally. As part | Read More »
The Problem Isn’t Racism Or Guns
I’ve followed the sad story of Australian jogger Christopher Lane who was gunned down by three “bored teens” in Oklahoma a few days ago. His girlfriend is left heartbroken, his country understandably outraged. The Deputy Prime Minister of Australia has called for a boycott of the US. “It is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street,” former Australian deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer told | Read More »
Bridging the Gap Women’s Summit – Answering The War On Women
If there is anything the Democrat party is good at, it’s building a narrative. And with the press on their side, they have successfully pushed forth some whoppers. A pervading rumor spread by the left, that I am sure both sides tire of hearing, is the GOP “war on women.” How the party who chooses to murder our future women through abortion could accuse the | Read More »
IRS Gets Rid of Obamacare Penalties
Hey, guess what!! The Internal Revenue Service has decided to get rid of all the employer and self-employed penalties under Obamacare for those without insurance. That’s right. The penalties are gone. Well . . . at least now they are called “shared responsibility payments.” Not kidding. George Orwell, call your office.
#waronwomen Alleged sexual assault, coverup, of minority Democratic staffers in Kentucky.
Oh, look. A Democratic-controlled legislature stonewalling sexual harassment charges by Democratic female staffers* against a white Democratic state legislator. I’d say shocking, except that it’s not. It’s highly offensive, but it’s not shocking. Two longtime Kentucky statehouse employees have filed ethics complaints against Democratic state Rep. John A. Arnold Jr., alleging a pattern of sexual assault and harassment dating back to early 2010. Cassaundra Cooper | Read More »
#DontBlink — Defund It
I am in the minority among my closest friends. Most of my friends are, as they are expressing on twitter and elsewhere, appalled at Heritage Action for America, For America, and soon other groups running targeted ad campaigns against various Republicans in Congress. The ads are designed to remind voters that those members of Congress and Senators have campaigned against Obamacare, but now will not | Read More »
Obama Pushes Debunked Poll Numbers On Gun Control
Never one to waste a political opportunity, President Obama took to Twitter to push a debunked poll in the wake of Christopher Lane’s shooting death and the school lockdown today in Georgia: Here’s what I wrote in April about the numbers Obama cites: Concerning that “90% of Americans support gun control/background checks (when they already exist), here’s the meat and taters on that: the poll was | Read More »
Lamar Alexander Has No Conservative Ideals
The media is finally realizing that there is a growing wave of conservative grassroots support to throw out the failed Republican leaders who currently waste conservative seats in Washington. The latest flaccid Republican who is gaining a lot of attention is Senator Lamar Alexander. Earlier today, Senator Alexander wrote a letter in the Tennessean to his constituents stating, “I stay true to my conservative ideals.” | Read More »
Another GOP Strategist Working Against the GOP
Ken Cuccinelli is leading an aggressive, populist, small government campaign. His latest television ad hits squarely on the theme of big companies hiring lobbyists and consultants in a bipartisan fashion and getting both sides to carve out loopholes and benefits for those big companies. The little guy is left paying for those loopholes in his taxes. The consultants in the GOP, who’ve been profiting heavily | Read More »
Oregon To “Rehabilitate” Businesses Opposed To Gay Marriage
Read More »
A family owned bakery in Oregon declines to provide a cake to celebrate the corruption of the institution of marriage and the state labor commissioner declares his goal is to “rehabilitate” them. If this sounds familiar, it is because it has happened before.
We Have a Plan. They Don’t.
RedState’s Action Center is active. Call your Senators and Congressman and tell them to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution. Tell them all to hold the line and don’t blink. They must defund Obamacare. If they fund it, they own it. The Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, and the Republican Leader in the United States Senate, Mitch McConnell, want you to know | Read More »
Debunking the Defund Obamacare Myths
Many of the critics of defunding Obamacare on the right are in favor of delaying Obamacare. Delaying just gives the bureaucrats more time to write regulations and get infrastructure in place that will be harder and harder to get rid of later. Defunding Obamacare actually shuts it down. The Heritage Foundation has a great video out on debunking the defunding myths. Our own Ben Howe | Read More »
The Great Debate
The RNC has a plan to limit debates and, in order to make the case and distract from one key issues, the RNC is using CNN and NBC as its whipping boys. Contrary to a lot of reports, it is not actually CNN’s news gathering division that would be producing a Hillary Clinton documentary, but a separate unit. Nonetheless, the two are intrinsically linked, Jeff | Read More »
