The Left’s Ever-Expanding, All-Encompassing Net Neutrality
Network Neutrality is socialism for the Internet – it guarantees everyone equal amounts of nothing. We’ll let college professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney identify Net Neutrality’s objective: “(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.” How very Hugo Chavez of them.

Pete Ricketts for Nebraska Governor
Pete Ricketts is running for Governor of Nebraska. I’m very happy to endorse his candidacy. Nebraska has a lot of farmers and one of the things Pete has championed is a proposal to reduce property taxes on family farms. Pete is a fiscal conservative and also a solid social conservative. He’s long been involved in Nebraska politics and in conservative politics. He is the former | Read More »
Possible voter fraud involving Covered California. DEFINITE incompetence in handling it.
For the record, even if this story is true I still do not think that this represents a concerted effort: A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state’s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party. The couple – who did | Read More »
Erick’s hilarious review of Darren Aronofsky’s new film “Noah” makes it sound ripe for the “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ treatment. John Nolte at Breitbart salutes the technical achievements and solid acting performances, while condemning the overall message of the movie as “brilliantly sinister anti-Christian filmmaking.” Personally, I was of the “let’s give the movie a chance before we condemn it” school during the last few | Read More »
Lt Gov. Anthony Brown’s utter failure: Maryland #Obamacare exchange to be scrapped.
Over a hundred million dollars’ worth of tax money – partially my tax money – down the drain: “Maryland officials are set to replace the state’s online health-insurance exchange with technology from Connecticut’s insurance marketplace, according to two people familiar with the decision, an acknowledgment that a system that has cost at least $125.5 million is broken beyond repair.” – This comes two months after | Read More »
Government Inaction: Inks and Fonts Edition
Printer ink is expensive. More expensive, in fact, than Chanel No. 5 perfume, and while I’m not an expert on perfume, I understand that’s quite a price for some nice-smelling liquid. You know who uses a lot of printer ink? Our government.

Tech at Night: Marco Rubio is right on NSA. House Republicans are right on ICANN/UN Internet Control
Even as Bitcoin crime and deception continue, the government has decided that yup, Bitcoin investors have to pay taxes just like everyone else. The anarchists have deemed taxation to be “unacceptable”. I’m sure the IRS will take that as an answer, right guys? Pass the popcorn.
Even if the Obama administration’s data use is way up, the answer is not to abolish NSA, or start shutting down programs entirely. Marco Rubio is right that it would amount to unilateral disarmament. I wonder if he reads RedState!

So why *did* the Democratic House leadership vote against pediatric research?
So, once upon a time the House of Representatives took up the “Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act.” Come, I will conceal nothing from you: it is a bill designed to reduce some of the – well deserved – anger felt towards the national parties by ending a particular subsidy. To wit: the bill takes about 126 million dollars (over ten years) that would normally | Read More »
EBONY, Black Republicans, and Media Bias
When members of the media show their bias—especially when they refuse even to consider conservative ideas—we have to call them out. Yesterday, a senior editor for EBONY, Jamilah Lemieux, began attacking black Republicans on Twitter. When an RNC staffer, Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams, called her out for her bias, she didn’t engage in a civil dialogue. She instead dismissed him as “a white dude.” | Read More »
If You Really Support GOP Unity, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
Ken Buck was RedState’s choice for Senator in Colorado. The Colorado GOP was having trouble unifying. Ken had high name ID. He was close to the incumbent Democrat in the polls. But the party was still divided. So Ken decided to switch places with Cory Gardner. Gardner, a Congressman running for re-election, stepped up to the Senate race and now Ken has stepped into the | Read More »
A Few More Thoughts on Noah
I get that some of you like art house Euro sci-fi movies. Not me. The scene where Noah is explaining the history of the world and shows silhouettes of people killing each other from tribal men Roman centurions to red coats fighting yankees to the world wars was just silly to me. I did not go for a Christian film or a Biblical film. I | Read More »
Mark Begich, carpetbagger.
Hey, I’m just following the same rules that Begich stalking horse Put America First PAC is trying to implement: “A Super PAC in support of Sen. Mark Begich (D., Alaska) is attacking his Republican opponent for having a home out of Alaska despite the fact that Begich himself owns a home in Washington, D.C.” Essentially, one of the Republican candidates (Dan Sullivan) bought a house | Read More »
Republican Main Street’s Dave Joyce Dives into “Gutter Politics”
Congressman Dave Joyce (R-OH 14) has responded to a primary challenge from Ohio Rep. Matt Lynch by recycling Democrat talking points the Ohio Republican Party slammed as “gutter politics” in 2012.
