Clinton versus Obama on Syria and foreign policy
The kerfuffle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is all in the news right now. Clinton, who sees her coronation as Democrat presidential candidate for the 2016 as a done deal, is trying to establish some daylight between herself and her former boss on foreign policy. There is a good reason for that. Other than coasting through 2009 with an “I’m not George Bush” strategy | Read More »

Don’t Rule Out a Riot
At the outset, let me note right up front that I am opposed to any form of violence that involves the looting, theft, or destruction of innocent third parties. I realize that this is happening right now in Ferguson and I find it inexcusable and indefensible. That having been said, I think it’s high time conservatives re-examined their gut-level reactions to what is going on | Read More »
Simon and Schuster covers for Obama
One would think that when a senior editor at publishing giant Simon & Schuster received a book proposal from a literary agent representing the platoon-mates of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl she would have been excited. After all, Bergdahl, who was with the Taliban for nearly five years, is something of a celebrity. Obama did his customary victory shuffle in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents as | Read More »

Tech at Night: Incentives demand we get metered Internet access
This is going to be quick tonight, but I have an important point to make. Our wired Internet is a lot better than critics make it out to be in this country, when you adjust for population density. Naturally no matter how good it is, we still want it to improve over time. If we want that to happen, we need to create incentives for investment.
And it’s basic economics: If you want to incentivize ISPs to increase your data rates, then you want to give them an economic incentive to get you as many bits as possible: It’s time to return to metered Internet access. Pay for what you use.

Bundy Not Last Victim of Professional Police
In March, 2014 Cliven Bundy found himself targeted by the professional police force of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) which justified its actions using a trivial offense that had placed Bundy on the wrong side of America’s supercharged legal code. BLM showed an appalling willingness to escalate the situation to overwhelming government force by deploying a police force which was a small army in | Read More »

#RSG14: Scott Turner, Texas House of Representatives
Texas has given us a lot of great fresh conservative Republican faces over the past few years. I think it’s fair to add Scott Turner to this list. He is a member of the Texas House of Representatives from the 33rd District. Some of you might recognize him from his playing days in the NFL, where he spent time with the Washington Redskins, San Diego | Read More »
From the 2014 RedState Gathering: Mark Davis and Scott Ott.
I wasn’t there for this year’s RedState Gathering, but I watched this particular panel from it with no little interest. Mark Davis is a Texan talk show guy; Scott Ott is, of course, Scott Ott of Scrappleface. The video is about a half hour long, and mostly about Texas, the Left’s long term goals for Texas (via the use of Battleground Texas), and how we | Read More »
