Assessing The Wake of Legislative Hiroshima
WHAT IS THE NUCLEAR OPTION? The nuclear option, which was triggered by Harry Reid last Thursday, is always characterized by the “puppet press,” but never described. And there is good reason for this. The nuclear option is nothing but an exercise in fraud. A majority of senators stand up and vote for a reading of the Senate rules that is absolutely palpably factually untrue — | Read More »

How The Internet Would Have Covered The First Thanksgiving
These days, a thing hasn’t happened if it hasn’t happened to the internet. If you don’t read about a story online, does it exist? Here at RedState, we say absolutely not. So in order to make the first Thanksgiving more real, to bring it home for us all, we’ve compiled some screenshots that show …

Hobby Lobby #Obamacare conscience exemption case to be heard by Supreme Court.
Not unexpected, but not before time, either. The U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to review the lawsuit filed by Hobby Lobby against the federal government over the Obamacare mandate that employers provide contraceptive coverage in their health plans. Hobby Lobby, which is owned by an Oklahoma City family with strong Christian beliefs, says a 1993 law, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, protects the company from | Read More »
Jack Kingston has Surrendered on Obamacare
Democrats are stewing in the misery of Obamacare’s disastrous side effects. We have a solid point of leverage coming in January to fight Obamacare in the budget. As we’ve explained, we have stronger leverage this time around than we did in October. However, that leverage is only predicated upon a united Republican Party committed to getting rid of Obamacare. Sadly, the recent comments by Rep. | Read More »
Lying Waitstaff and The Media Who Love Them
When I was in middle school, a very smart teacher (who I’m sure now was probably conservative) gave us a small project. We were to bring in a newspaper page and look for the words that might indicate opinion. Sprinkled throughout stories written as “news reports” were hints at the author’s opinion on the matter; and if you didn’t read carefully, a reporter could lead | Read More »
Eugene McCarthy Erotic Fan Fiction
This deal with Iran is fascinating in that it appears to not really be a deal at all. “The final details of a nuclear agreement signed over the weekend between Iran and Western nations will not actually go into effect until further negotiations take place at a later date, according to a senior administration official and sources on Capitol Hill.” If the deal happens, it | Read More »
We Are The 55%

“We Will Brand Your 8-year-old Kid a Racist for Life.”
Via Daniel Hannan comes this horrifying story of parental bullying via some school in the UK called the “Littleton Green Community School.” Apparently last week, parents in this school district received the following letter sent home (of COURSE in Comic Sans): Now, just to say up front, if I had faith in this particular school district, I would probably have zero problem with my child | Read More »
Nameless Republicans Complain to Liberals About Conservatives
I’m back from London.It seems I have missed little.Apparently, every reporter in America felt compelled last week to write accounts of where they were when John F. Kennedy died. Those reporters not yet born, revised history enough to make it work. It’s like the press has finally realized Barack Obama is no longer qualified to be secular Jesus, so they’ve gone back to JFK.Mitch McConnell | Read More »
ObamaCare loses support among Women and Democrats as Obama approvals tank
It was a very bad polling week for President Obama and ObamaCare, his signature legislative achievement. First, the new ABC News/Washington Post poll found that, if they had the opportunity to do it over, registered voters would choose Mitt Romney over President Obama by a margin of 49% to 45%. Obama’s approvals also hit a new all-time low in the poll with a 42% approval | Read More »

The New York Times Equates Opposing Obamacare With Slavery
One does not expect to find insightful, cogent, or fair commentary on the editorial pages of the New York Times. Banal liberalism, provincialism, and insulation from the beliefs of flyover America are standard fare and thus to be expected. But every once in a while, a piece comes along which is so utterly devoid of reason, taste, or linear thought that it deserves to be pointed | Read More »
