More Failure Theater from the GOP
Recently I posted on the concept of Failure Theater. This happens when the GOP pretends to do something but in reality intends to do nothing. The resulting kabuki drama is carried out solely for the benefit of the people they are trying to fool. The letter written by Senator Tom Contton to Iran’s leaders has allowed a small group of GOP senators to put on | Read More »

Welcome back to the RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings! To view all the previous installments of this series, click here. Lots of movement this week, most of which was unjustified and will result in certain members of the voting panel being fired! Without further ado, let’s get right to it!

Obama’s Not-so-Secret Immigration Operational Center
The folks at the Daily Signal have put together this great video showing how the Federal Government is preparing to implement Obama’s Executive Amnesty. One of the most common defenses of the Republicans’ capitulation on the DHS funding battle was that shuttind down DHS would not actually stop the program from going forward; this video shows (among other things) that this is absolutely not true: | Read More »
Jindal to… raise revenue?
I will be the first to admit that the “conservative media” in Louisiana is often just looking to find flaws in anyone so they can build themselves up as a better conservative than a politician. Good for readership or ratings or whatever. However, I have to look at this move by Bobby Jindal and wonder if it is really the best move to make. After | Read More »
Georgia House Will Raise Your Taxes, But Not Protect Your Religious Liberty
Last week, the Georgia House voted for the transportation tax increase. But Speaker Ralston and the House Judiciary Committee have refused to take any action to support religious liberty in Georgia. These guys are Republicans and they voted for a tax increase, but will not vote to protect your freedom of conscience. The Georgia Senate overwhelmingly passed S.B. 129, the religious liberty legislation, and did | Read More »

Democrats: we were wrong about that whole dissent being patriotic thing
Forty-seven United States Senators did what desperately needed to be done. They sent a letter to the hardline Islamic radicals who run Iran — and let’s not fool ourselves, the only difference between Iranian hardliners and Iranian moderates involves beard length — informing them that the deal they are about to cut with Obama is simply not going to be approved by the Senate. The | Read More »
Boehner & McConnell’s Playbook Incentivized Barack Obama’s Liberal Push
Dan Pfeiffer was one of the President’s early advisors. He has departed the White House and conducted an exit interview with New York magazine. On the leftward tilt of the Obama Administration, Pfeiffer actually echoes what many conservatives from Rush Limbaugh to myself have been saying. Essentially, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% incentivized | Read More »
Aaron Schock Needs to Resign
I will not belabor the point. Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) 39% has proven himself incapable of handling his own money, the money of his donors, and taxpayer money. He has lived excessively off the backs of taxpayers who must be reimbursed and off of donors to whom he is now a servant. His excuses are now met with revised excuses, further apologies, | Read More »
Tech at Night: Netflix got used and betrayed over Net Neutrality
Before the FCC’s vote on Barack Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, Netflix was the golden boy of the Net Neutrality movement. They were constantly cited as the reason we needed regulation, and Netflix played it up, hoping winners and losers would be chosen. Well now it turns out, even Netflix opposes Obama’s plan.
Treading carefully to avoid our profanity rules here at RedState, Democrats are all upset over 47 Republican members of the Senate sending Iran a letter indicating any deal with the President is dead on arrival in the Senate. There will be no Iranian treaty. Democrats are now claiming sedition, treason, and other outrages. They are hysterically screaming that politics is supposed to stop at the | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Admitted She Is Not “An Expert on Software-Defined Storage.”
Last year, Hillary Clinton spoke at the OpenSDx Summit in San Francisco, CA. She was asked about privacy, security, and technology. In the speech, Hillary Clinton admitted “I’m not an expert on software-defined storage or the intricacies of cloud computing.” Further Admitting the U.S. Government is “woefully behind” on upgrading to next-generation technology, Clinton noted that under her tenure at the State Department, it was | Read More »
Republican Leadership Wants Barack Obama to Run Congress
This is truly unbelievable. The Main Street Advocacy group, which is a group that was formed by Republican leadership and funded by Republican leadership and their allies, and run by leadership lapdog Steve LaTourette has issued a truly unbelievable ad. The ad backs all the worst people in Congress like Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58% and it attacks people who objected to | Read More »
A Dumb Playbook Written by Out-of-Touch Dinosaurs
In case you were wondering where Republicans in Congress would do for an encore after having completely dispirited and depressed their voting base in less than 60 days by flubbing a slam dunk abortion bill and passing a clean DHS funding bill without anything more than a token fight over Obama’s executive amnesty, well, you’re going to want to sit down because [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch | Read More »
