The Indifferent Leader
Obama has had a very bad year at the Supreme Court. As catalogued by Reason, the President has suffered a series of stunning and mostly unanimous rebukes at the hands of SCOTUS (including the two Justices he appointed) in connection with executive branch overreach. Predictably, Obama has responded to this rebuke by going on the stump and swearing to do even more than he has | Read More »

The time is running out for you to meet Nikki Haley. Governor Haley was at the very first RedState Gathering. We rallied after that Gathering to get her elected.

Kill Campus Tyranny With FIRE
To properly understand the true commitment that the Post-modern American University makes to robust, open debate and diversity of thought, it helps to remember what happened when a Women’s Studies Professor at University of California Santa Barbara encountered an anti-abortion protest on her campus. The Professor, Mireille Miller-Young, noticed that 16 Year-Old Girl, Thrin Short, of Survivors of The Abortion Holocaust, was holding up a | Read More »

The Watercooler ~ The National Psychology of Barack Obama’s Presidency
Granted, we still have over two years left of a two-term presidency that has marked the nation in many ways. The first black president, the first super-radical progressive in my generation to ascend to such heights of power — at what some of us would describe as a startling (and unmerited) pace. There was just too much romanticism to resist the lure of Barack Obama’s | Read More »
Huffington Post: Too many Catholics on the Supreme Court
You scratch a progressive and you find an fascist. That has been the lesson learned from the Hobby Lobby decision. One of the most notable bits of fascist commentary appeared in the Huffington Post by an anti-religious bigot named Ronald A. Lindsay, The Uncomfortable Question: Should We Have Six Catholic Justices on the Supreme Court? Unfortunately, a majority of the Supreme Court may now be resurrecting | Read More »
SBA Expected To Release Fraudulent and Falsified Small Business Data Soon
Every year about this time the Small Business Administration (SBA) issues a press release claiming the federal government barely missed the 23% small business contracting goal required by law. In reality, the Obama Administration has never come anywhere close to reaching the minimum 23% small business-contracting goal.

Obama is the worst President since World War II
That legacy thing isn’t working out so good for President Obama. A new Quinnipiac poll finds that voters now say Obama is the worst president since World War II. Obama is less popular than President George W. Bush. Voters, by a 45 to 38 percent margin, say the country would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election. Ronald Reagan is considered the | Read More »
There is no moral equivalence between Israel and Palestinian groups
Moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinian leaders turns a blind eye to many things, but the main things are innocence and intent.
There is no moral equivalence here. Israelis don’t use children as a shield for rocket launch sites. They don’t send young men and women to blow themselves us in Palestinian cities, markets and buses. The various Palestinian groups and Hamas do. They do it regularly.

I guess the Left is comfortable with our quiet troop buildup in Iraq.

Uniguest Needs a Better Explanation for Why Conservative Sites Are Being Blocked
James Varney of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, stayed at the Hyatt Place hotel in Riverhead, NY. He tried to look at the Drudge Report, but was blocked from doing so by his hotel’s internet connection. In fact, he tried looking at a number of conservative websites, including Powerline and Instapundit. They too were blocked. He then tried a number of liberal websites from Talking | Read More »
The GOP plays heads-I-win-tails-you-lose with conservatives
The American, the magazine of the American Enterprise Institute, has an article this month that I classify as a must-read for conservatives searching for a way ahead. The article is titled Why the voters got rid of Cantor. Most people do not decide which candidate to vote for based on who shares their opinion on the specific issues. They know that issues are complicated, and | Read More »
