Keywords: Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post, circulation, problems.
Sorry about the title, but I want to make sure that Jeff Bezos – more accurately, his research team – sees this post. Mind you, I’m assuming that Bezos plans to introduce the Amazon customer service paradigm to the Washington Post, but surely this is not an unreasonable assumption, hey? Anyway, on to the purpose for this post. The Washington Post is doing it again | Read More »
#DontBlink — Defund It
I am in the minority among my closest friends. Most of my friends are, as they are expressing on twitter and elsewhere, appalled at Heritage Action for America, For America, and soon other groups running targeted ad campaigns against various Republicans in Congress.The ads are designed to remind voters that those members of Congress and Senators have campaigned against Obamacare, but now will not vote | Read More »
Obama Pushes Debunked Poll Numbers On Gun Control
Never one to waste a political opportunity, President Obama took to Twitter to push a debunked poll in the wake of Christopher Lane’s shooting death and the school lockdown today in Georgia: Here’s what I wrote in April about the numbers Obama cites: Concerning that “90% of Americans support gun control/background checks (when they already exist), here’s the meat and taters on that: the poll was | Read More »

As part of the State Department’s review of TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, 1.2 million comments have been received from interested parties including environmental groups and the public at large. The Department of the Interior has commented too, expressing concern that TransCanada’s impact during construction and during pipeline operation will disrupt the “cultural soundscapes” and “high quality night skies” at national parks and recreation areas | Read More »
No, Tom Price doesn’t support the Marketplace Fairness Act
There’s a group here in Georgia that has been placing fliers on cars at various events around the state hoping to raise attention to politicians’ records. Some of the fliers make good points, though they overlook the damage they’ve done to their own cause. Others are, well, willfully misleading. Take, for instance, a flier this group placed on cars last night at an event hosted by Peach Pundit, | Read More »
Lamar Alexander Has No Conservative Ideals
The media is finally realizing that there is a growing wave of conservative grassroots support to throw out the failed Republican leaders who currently waste conservative seats in Washington. The latest flaccid Republican who is gaining a lot of attention is Senator Lamar Alexander. Earlier today, Senator Alexander wrote a letter in the Tennessean to his constituents stating, “I stay true to my conservative ideals.” | Read More »

If John Adams is correct, that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other” we may have reached a tipping point where the Constitution is no longer relevant to the character of the nation.
Obama’s small business rubber stamp not so good at paying taxes, debts
In revelations that would be comical if they weren’t so predictable (and true), President Obama’s top small business advocate really is keeping it consistent with the administration he backs. Small Business Majority President and CEO John Arensmeyer has frequently been trotted all over the place as a small business advocate supportive of the president’s agenda and policy goals. In a Huffington Post piece last year | Read More »
Another GOP Strategist Working Against the GOP
Ken Cuccinelli is leading an aggressive, populist, small government campaign. His latest television ad hits squarely on the theme of big companies hiring lobbyists and consultants in a bipartisan fashion and getting both sides to carve out loopholes and benefits for those big companies. The little guy is left paying for those loopholes in his taxes.The consultants in the GOP, who’ve been profiting heavily from | Read More »

Read More »
A family owned bakery in Oregon declines to provide a cake to celebrate the corruption of the institution of marriage and the state labor commissioner declares his goal is to “rehabilitate” them. If this sounds familiar, it is because it has happened before.

How pathetic is the Christian Nation alt-history?
This pathe… what’s that? Oh, Christian Nation is this new, steadily-bombing alternate history that’s been out that takes as its change point John McCain winning the election (yeah, I know), then conveniently dying in Russia two months into his administration (yeah, I know) and leaving Sarah Palin to somehow idiot-savant, evil-genius her way into creating an American theocracy (YEAH, I KNOW) over the next twenty | Read More »
We Have a Plan. They Don’t.
RedState’s Action Center is active. Call your Senators and Congressman and tell them to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution. Tell them all to hold the line and don’t blink. They must defund Obamacare. If they fund it, they own it.The Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, and the Republican Leader in the United States Senate, Mitch McConnell, want you to know they | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Grand Return
So I’ve been gone a while. Sorry about that. After Summer Games Done Quick and the Redstate Gathering, I was supposed to be back in action. But a case of the shingles took me down fast. I was a sleepless zombie in pain for a week. No fun. Was actually alright on Friday, but I had so much reading to do I couldn’t catch up in time to post on Friday, so here we are. Hang on.
So let’s start with Time-Warner and CBS. The two had their negotiations fall through with respect to carrying CBS on Cable, and so a blackout began. The left wants this as the pretext to more government, but let’s be clear about this. Government created this pickle. The way out of it was proposed way back when, and backed in Tech at Night, when Jim DeMint and Steve Scalise proposed legislation. It’s still the right answer.

Bloomberg Fail: Mayor’s Presser Aims Guns At Audience, Literally
Mayor Michael Bloomberg for the past several years has lectured law-abiding gun owners about crime rates and responsible firearm ownership while himself violating the cardinal rules of Gun Ownership 101 via Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and he’s done it again: It’s pretty insane that no one at this press conference is the least bit uncomfortable with the direction these guns are pointing, save perhaps for | Read More »
