Stop US funded abortions. Reinstate the Mexico City policy
As we prepare for an orgy of appropriations in the twilight hours of the 113th Congress, one of the bills under consideration is the State and Foreign Operations Appropriation bill. This might seem to be an arcane place for a battle over the Right to Life to take place, but it is happening and it is important. President Reagan established what is know as the Mexico | Read More »
The ‘You won’t believe what SNL did in this skit about Executive Orders!’ Sunday Open Thread.
No, really, you won’t. Trust me on this: it’s like it’s from an alternate universe, or something. You’ll keep waiting for them to take a slap at Republicans because we’re unhappy about using executive orders in this fashion, but they never do. It’s almost unsettling. Open thread.

The Duggars: 150 Thousand Haters and Counting
If there’s a family that embodies all that the anti-God, do-as-you-please (as long as they agree with it), so-called liberals (Brent Bozell calls them “libertines”, but that word doesn’t really describe the freakier-than-thou attitude they exhibit), it’s the Duggars. Here’s a family that really does do as they please, and violates just about every single American cultural norm. They are as off-the-trail as any family since | Read More »
This Means War
Barack Obama used to teach constitutional law at the law school in which I am presently enrolled. He was by all accounts well-liked by his students, though perhaps somewhat aloof to his then-fellow faculty members. I currently have class three days a week in then-Professor Obama’s old favorite classroom, Room V, and each time I enter I see a photo near the door commemorating his | Read More »
Agribusiness hits the jackpot, taxpayers not so much
his will come as no surprise for anyone who was paying attention (see the RedState coverage) during the debate of the Farm Bill last winter (or any other debate on any other Farm Bill): U.S. farmers are about to reap a bumper harvest not just in corn and soybeans but also in new subsidies that could soar to $10 billion, blowing a hole in the | Read More »
BREAKING: Ferguson Grand Jury fails to reach a decision
Via the Washington Times: The Ferguson, Mo., grand jury considering the indictment of Officer Darren Wilson, who killed teenager Michael Brown during an altercation in August, left the justice center in St. Louis on Friday without reaching a decision. Sources told CNN on Saturday that it was unclear when the jury would reconvene.
USA Today Reporter Susan Davis gets a bad rap
Many of us have been aware of the travails of former CBS reporter Sharyl Atkisson who had her reporting on Fast & Furious suppressed by her employer because it got perilously close to the truth of the matter. A new batch of documents turned over to Judicial Watch pursuant to a court order shows us the extent to which Atkisson was drawing blood at the | Read More »
It’s Not What He Did, But How He Did It
Most of you are opposed to what Barack Obama did, but if you step back for a minute you will see it is not what he did, but how he did it. What Obama did is unpopular with a majority of Americans, but he is right that what he did has bipartisan approval in Congress. Nonetheless, the House of Representatives chose not to act in | Read More »
IRS Scandal: Investigators Uncover Lois Lerner’s E-mails in Data
Here at Redstate, we’ve already talked about how Lois Lerner’s assertion that her and her colleague’s e-mails were lost when their hard drives were “mysteriously” destroyed is a load of bunk. We also know that the e-mails probably exist in the government’s back-up system, although the relevant bureaucrats are just too lazy to go through the files and find them. Now, the Treasury Inspector General | Read More »
Help The Poor. Block the Amnesty
He Works For Nobody Else In America There are people out there who genuinely appreciate all that President Obama has done since he found the American crown adrift in the gutter back in 2008. The TaxProf blog explains who these fortunate individuals are below. 12,040 new ultra high net worth (UHNW) individuals were minted this year, pushing the global UHNW population | Read More »
Tech at Night: Weekend Update
I’m not going to say I’m tired of writing about Title II Reclassification, the scheme promoted by the extreme left to place the Internet under 1930s-era regulation, since the courts have slapped down twice previous Net Neutrality attempts. But I’m running out of ways to say the power grab, now backed by the President, is a terrible idea that attempts to dig deeper down the | Read More »
Seriously, the DNC needs to fire its social media squad over this ‘ethnic cleansing’ own-goals.
As my readers may remember, yesterday the Democratic party managed to get itself put in a bad place by its own social media squad over ‘ethnic cleansing’ (basically, said squad turned a talk radio caller into the Voice of the Republican Party, because we’ve relentlessly given the Democratic party nothing better to work with this cycle). The Daily Caller covered this as well: it contained | Read More »
