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 »
SCOTUS to Decide Meaning of “One Person, One Vote”
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Chad Flores to discuss a controversial case before the Supreme Court that will decide the meaning of “one person, one vote,” the legal complexities of the case, and how a win for the challengers may cause even more chaos for redistricting.

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 »
WATCH: Gov. Scott Walker Addresses Now Infamous Politico/TPM/Jezebel/NPR/Kos/Etc Ultrasound Misquote
On the Dana Loesch Radio Show today, Governor Scott Walker addressed the made-up controversy over his non-controversial remarks, first pointed out by Loesch and which we wrote about here at RedState. His response is perfect. “Walker Derangement Syndrome’ is absolutely correct. The left and the media (standard “but I repeat myself” joke goes here) will relentlessly latch onto stories that they think paint Republicans as | Read More »

[Video] AFL-CIO Boss to Hillary: Support Us On Trade or Else.
For a long time, AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka’s support for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been “lukewarm.” Trumka’s preferred candidate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) 16% [D-MA], has stated she’s not running for President (so far.). However, in order to garner the labor federation’s endorsement for 2016, it seems that one of Trumka’s big litmus tests is whether or not Clinton will back | Read More »
George Pataki runs for president as the WTF?? candidate
Great news. I know you’ve all been waiting for this. George Pataki, a three-term governor of New York, on Thursday joined a crowded field of Republican presidential candidates where he has little name recognition and will have to prove his conservative credentials. Pataki invoked Republican Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan in his announcement speech in Exeter, N.H. and said he was running to “preserve | Read More »
