IRS and Congressional Democrats Worked Together Against Conservatives
Katie Pavlich did the reporting on this over at Townhall. It is quite an impressive scoop. New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt | Read More »
Tech at Night: A message to Mike Lee about Comcast.
Mike Lee, we’re your friends here at RedState. We backed you in the primary, and we’re sure to back you going forward. But please, lay off on his Comcast/Time Warner deal. The arguments you’re making, at least as portrayed by The Hill, are the same arguments that were used falsely to fool conservatives into backing the Net Neutrality power grab. Now they’re being used to trick us into backing an antitrust power grab.
First off, even if Net Neutrality wasn’t fixing an imaginary threat, the kind of discrimination you’re talking about is already banned by consent decree from the Comcast – NBC Universal deal. So your fears are doubly unfounded. But don’t take my word for it. Let the market work. Markets are how all of us speak, and we know better than government.

Watch How The Left-Wing Smear Machine Does Dick Durbin’s Dirty Work
Watch how Dick Durbin launches a coordinated assault on a Republican with an egregious misquote that takes off after it gets laundered through the left-wing media. Yesterday afternoon, Sahil Kapur of TalkingPointsMemo wrote a piece quoting remarks from Mitch McConnell: “Instead of focusing on jobs, [Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid] launched into another confusing attack on the left’s latest bizarre obsession,” the Republican leader said | Read More »
Timeline of Targeting: The Evidence Mounts Against the IRS’s Lois Lerner
Today, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to recommend criminal charges against Lois Lerner. The Committee’s letter to the Justice Department documents in detail the nefarious character of Lois Lerner’s actions.
But maybe most shocking is the revelation that when she learned of the application of President Obama’s own campaign-committee-turned-advocacy-group, Organizing for America (OFA), she remarked, “Oh—maybe I can get the DC office job!”

NRSC: Why aren’t Democratic Senators practicing what they preach on Equal Pay?
If the Democrats didn’t want to be judged by this standard, then they shouldn’t have tried to impose it in the first place.

What Republicans Stand For
So what is it that Republicans stand for?
We stand for many things, to list them all out would be quite the task. But it all springs forth from our founding. We stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

After Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy Are Not Options
With the primaries going as they are coupled with existing pledges from Republicans in the House of Representatives, it is becoming more and more certain that John Boehner will not remain as Speaker of the House after this year. A number of candidates ahead in primaries, including John Ratcliffe in Texas and others, have pledged to oppose Boehner as Speaker come 2015. Likewise, by my | Read More »
@Kickstarter Declines To Fund @GosnellMovie… And Lies About It
On the heels of Brendan Eich being hounded out of the company he founded because his views on marriage comported with those which have been inherent in Western Civilization for three thousand years of recorded history, we have another example of the totalitarian, fascistic left using their power to suppress viewpoints they don’t agree with. Two years ago, abortionist Kermit Gosnell was sentenced to life | Read More »
Contrary to many conservatives, I hold Jeb Bush in high regard. That does not mean I agree with him on everything. I don’t. But he was an excellent governor. He has always been more intrinsically conservative than his brother. He relates well to the growing hispanic community in the nation. And he understands that education is a civil rights issue. I like him. In 2012, | Read More »

Time to Kiss RINO Vance McAllister Goodbye
One would think that we’d have the ability to elect conservative Republicans to R+15 districts in this day and age, especially in a special election scenario. Yet, last November, Vance McAllister managed to slip through the net and win the special election in Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District. Electing conservatives is not just about finding people who will vote the right way. It is about finding | Read More »
A Story That Needed Telling
I have been very angry, though privately, with people who have attacked Ben Sasse for being friends with Mike Leavitt, the former Bush Secretary of Health and Human Services who sucks on Obamacare. I have been privy to private information. I’m very glad the Sasse campaign is now telling this story. On the day Ben Sasse was to meet his new boss, Mike Leavitt, Ben’s | Read More »
Insert Witty “War on Women” Paycheck Fairness Reference Here
President Obama’s latest pen and phone exercise is aimed at satisfying the Democrats demands for a “Paycheck Fairness Act.” Adept at playing politics for election year gains, the left is again touting the false premise that women only make $ 0.77 for every $1.00 a man does, creating an artificial divide where a government “fix” provides more problems rather than free-market solutions that actually work. | Read More »

Matt Bevin: Mitch McConnell Is A Bully With A Thirty-Year ‘Machiavellian Death-Grip’
Last week, FreedomWorks hosted #FreePAC Kentucky, a grassroots rally and gathering that featured excellent speakers and a fired up base. One of the most popular speakers was Senate candidate and Mitch McConnell primary-foe Matt Bevin. I had the chance to speak with him after the even for a few quick questions. “For thirty years, nobody has wanted to run against this guy. For thirty years | Read More »
