Nat’l Leftwing Network Discovered Via State Open Records Law
Thanks to a law requiring government workers in Wisconsin to turn over e-mails to citizens who ask to see them, a secretive national network of liberal ideologues and activists has been discovered. Nate Schacht of Media Trackers has been researching the work of a liberal University of Wisconsin professor who runs a left-wing think-tank at the University funded in-part with public money.

Greg Sargent’s Own Goal Worse than Previously Believed
Yesterday I jotted off a quick post about Greg Sargent’s “bombshell” evidence that supposedly disproved the Halbig Plaintiffs’ entire argument, but actually proved it conclusively. At the end of that post I predicted that Sargent’s evidence would be much more likely to be cited by the Plaintiffs (the side he opposes) than the Defendants (the side he favors). Turns out, Patterico did some digging late last | Read More »
Democrats Have a Losing, Anti-Energy Agenda
With only a few months until the midterm elections, the issues that matter most to the American people are jobs and the economy. Unfortunately, President Obama and Democrats are committed to energy policies that hurt economic growth and keep more people from finding work. When it comes to energy, the President and Democrats are running in the wrong direction. Instead of working to create jobs | Read More »

Look, I’m not telling you to love Mitch McConnell; but this was a really stupid thing for Alison Grimes to say.

Hey Allison Grimes: Iron Dome Does Not Stop Tunnels
They were hoping for the second coming of the “Year of the (Democrat) Woman,” but instead it is more the year of the consultant crafted lump of candidate. First, media darling Michelle Nunn of Georgia gets caught with a campaign memo telling her to find a position on Israel, which is listed as “TBD”, in order to raise money from Jews. Now, Allison Grimes of | Read More »
What marriage conserves
Damon Linker has an interesting article at The Week in which he makes the case that the Culture Wars are really all about sex, and while he identifies himself as in tune with the new understanding of sexual morality, he urges respectful contemplation of traditional beliefs. In essence, he’s saying that maybe those traditions endured through centuries – right up through the late Two Thousands – because | Read More »
Netroots Nation claims big win in Detroit
n Tuesday, July 29, 2014 Netroots Nation declared a big win in Detroit in an email statement titled, “Victory in Detroit on the Water Crisis!” You may recall that almost two weeks ago The Left-wing Liberal Netroots Nation, or “Nutroots,” as Senator Hatch christened them in 2007, protested for water to be a human right. So is water now a free human right in Detroit? No, despite the hype of the Nutroots’ | Read More »
House Republicans Set to Create Massive New Government Entitlement Program
It could be as big as Medicare Part D. It is being rushed quickly to a vote so congressmen can then flee Washington and claim they’ve done something to fix the VA situation. It does nothing to fix the VA situation. Did I mention it could be as big as Medicare Part D and will be a new massive entitlement program? This is how House | Read More »
Vox.com’s Ezra Klein Stumbles Bass-Ackward Into a Cogent Point
From Ezra Klein of Vox.com (“Everything you need to know in two minutes, using two brain cells”) comes an analytically-challenged piece with an awkward title: A stunning graph on how money polarizes politics Now, I suppose that what young Ezra is getting at is that there is a large moderate slice of the population that doesn’t donate much money to political causes (as shown in | Read More »
Planned Parenthood – They Kill Your Baby And Then Overcharge You For The Service
Under the benevolent auspices of what has to be the most Pro-Abortion administration in American History, Planned Parenthood has grown to be an ultimate crony capitalist partnered with an encouraging government. The organization netted $1.21B in FY13 of which $540.6M was government grant money. $54.7M has been reinvested in lobbying the government that same year. This gives Planned Parenthood an ROI approaching 850% which makes | Read More »
Greg Sargent Inadvertently Proves the Halbig Plaintiffs’ Case
Partisan hack and Washington Post writer Greg Sargent has allegedly found a silver bullet that proves that the Halbig decision is erroneous and that the Halbig plaintiffs don’t have a leg to stand on. The gist of Sargent’s point is that an earlier version of the Obamacare bill had language that explicitly provided for subsidies for beneficiaries on Federal exchanges, even though the final version of | Read More »
Obama Administration Energy Policies Destroying Middle Class
EPA head Gina McCarthy claims the Obama administration is not engaged in a “war on coal.” Nevertheless, the mounting evidence is fairly conclusive: Not only is there a war on coal, but the Obama administration is winning . . . and the collateral damage includes middle and working-class families throughout the country. A brutal story last week in the Washington Post (of all publications) introduced readers to victims of | Read More »

Hungary limps toward fascism
In a speech to his party’s faithful, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán seemed to signal a course that would not only make Hungary’s continued membership in the EU problematic but would result in a government that looked to Moscow for leadership rather than Brussels and one that would be ruled more in the model of fascism that Vladimir Putin has installed in Russia than as a | Read More »
Mailbag: Who Will Speak for the SATANISTS?!
RedState doesn’t shy away from religion when discussing politics. We understand that free people must be allowed to form their own opinions and that those opinions will likely be informed by their individual religious beliefs. Those of us on the Front Page of RedState also believe, to some degree or another, that our nation was founded by men influenced by the Jewish and Christian faiths. | Read More »
