Probe: Pennsylvania Paid $2.2 Billion in Fraudulent Unemployment Insurance
Conservatives have been trying for years to investigate fraud in welfare programs at the national and state levels. Repeatedly, we are told by the Left that such attempts are unnecessary and endanger the ability of those programs to help those in need. However, time and again, we see that there are examples of fraud in welfare programs across the country. The recent probe into fraudulent | Read More »
Next Judicial Throwdown for Obama’s Executive Amnesty comes in July
Back when President Obama announced his executive order granting amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens, there was a lot of speculation on just how well such an action would hold up in court. Thus far, for the administration, the results have been nothing but rejection. The latest in the series of judicial setbacks for the President came last week when a three judge panel | Read More »
It’s over: Matt Bevin is the Republican nominee for Kentucky Governor.
As Hot Air notes: James Comer took the high road and did not make life difficult after the recanvass. So they are all one big, happy fleet now in the Kentucky Republican party. No, really: "Happy Together" from Steven Reese on Vimeo. So no hard feelings, and time to encourage Jack Conway to explore his options in the private sector. Moe Lane PS: Matt Bevin | Read More »
Iowa GOP doubles down on pay-to-play
The Iowa GOP is rather flustered that they are bleeding support for their pay-to-play system, more colloquially known as the Iowa Straw Poll. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, Jeb Bush, and Mike Huckabee have all said they won’t be spending money there, and others have said they weren’t sure. The straw poll hasn’t been a great source of accuracy when it comes | Read More »
Rand Paul PAC runs birther ad attacking Ted Cruz
It seems like every day we are confronted with more evidence that Rand Paul and his followers should be kept as far from the levers of power as Barack Obama. Paul seems to be either unable or unwilling to break free of the need to suck up to the same nutjobs and douches that kept his old man in psychotropic drugs for a couple of | Read More »
Martin O’Malley enters the race
Via the Baltimore Sun: Martin O’Malley, the former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor who ushered in an era of tech-savvy management and a new brand of progressive politics during more than two decades in public office announced his long-expected campaign for president on Saturday. With Baltimore’s skyline as his backdrop, the 52-year-old Democrat framed the election next year in dire economic terms, arguing that income | Read More »
Dean Obeidallah’s Last Resort is Hither
It started out as a typical Saturday morning. Wake up, get some coffee, check Twitter, see outrage of the day, move on. Today, it was stand-up-turned-pundit Dean Obeidallah’s turn to provide the outrage. So, okay, Obeidallah is probably upset at the protesters wielding guns at a mosque to protest radical Islam’s affect on the kind of people who like to kill Christians and gays. | Read More »
Tech at Night: Internet anarchist and Silk Road founder gets life
Ross Ulbricht, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts, founded an online crime syndicate using the Tor network. Drugs, human trafficking, guns, and even possibly murder for hire were traded in the network. He was caught, and he got life in prison. These are the threats, not monitoring terrorists.
Bill Clinton sends fundraising damage control letter
Going back to the point I made earlier in the day, I don’t have to make up lies about Democrats. If I can’t develop a migraine by the end of the day just seeing what they are doing in the open I’m just not trying. Case in point. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Petra Nemcova, a Czech model who | Read More »
The Title IX witch-hunt of Laura Kipnis, presented in real-time.
Laura Kipnis made a mistake: she’s an academic who publicly challenged the idea of Title IX. Now she’s being sued… under Title IX.

Labor Department Preparing Blacklist Rule for Government Contracts
As their previous actions have shown, the Obama administration has proven it has no idea what a functional economic policy looks like. Obamacare is the biggest example of this, but the Department of Labor has just given us another. They are creating what amounts to a blacklist rule to help determine which private businesses are awarded government contracts. Using a 2014 executive order, here’s what | Read More »
The American Public: You Know, Hillary is Pretty Much a Liar and We’re Okay with That
I found an interesting fact nestled amongst the data contained in this latest Q-Poll. Many people are focusing on the fact that it shows a 5-way tie for the GOP nomination at this point, or the fact that Hillary is easily beating everyone except Rubio and Paul in head-to-head matchups. This is all interesting, but it is far too early in the process to draw | Read More »
Why I am more honest and less biased than Politico
RedState is an unabashedly conservative site and I, myself, have been serving up hot, dripping red meat freshly torn from the butts of Democrats and Communists, to the extent there is a difference, for over a decade. Yet after the past couple of days I’ve come conclusion that by any objective standard I am both more honest and less biased in my coverage of national | Read More »
This Way Comes
“The difference between Bush’s mistakes and his disappointments may just be that he hasn’t yet taken ownership of the latter,” Massimo Calabresi wrote in Time as he covered President George W. Bush’s final press conference in January of 2009. Four years earlier, left-wing journalist John Dickerson had begun a trend among the Bush White House press corps, demanding from the President a recognition of his | Read More »
The Circle of Jerks Turns From Scott Walker to Ted Cruz
The Circle of Jerks went blind the other day over a quote from Scott Walker about ultrasounds prior to an abortion being “cool.” The Politico ran it. Various left leaning journalists circulated it. It’s as if they had an email server and they all descended at once with their stories printed on kleenex. The only problem is that the story was made up. Some of | Read More »
