“A Promise He Could Not Keep.” [Video fixed.]
[Video fixed: I don't know why the code wasn't loading earlier, sorry.] The House GOP has produced… the video that all of you wanted them to produce about Obamacare. One that simply shows all the people who are being hurt by Barack Obama’s (and by extension, the Democratic party’s leadership’s) lies about how ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ Well, that | Read More »
Cuccinelli Closing In on McAuliffe
I’ve been struggling to find good news in the Virginia Governor’s race and there is finally a bit. Cuccinelli has closed the gap with McAuliffe and is only 4 points behind now, even with the third party candidate at 9%. Hallelujah. Ken is a good friend and I’ve been both dearly worried about him and deeply disappointed in a bunch of Republicans who’ve decided to | Read More »
Obama’s Kangaroo Court Now In Session: Senate confirms another union lawyer as NLRB prosecutor
Ever since July, when Republicans caved in to Harry Reid’s “nuclear option” threat, GOP resistance to Barack Obama’s appointments to agencies like the National Labor Relations Board (as well as others) has been virtually non-existent. A day after Sen. Lindsey Graham’s empty threat to block appointments until his questions about Benghazi were answered, the Senate voted to confirm controversial union lawyer Richard Griffin as the | Read More »
ObamaCare: They Knew. They knowingly lied.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep him.” – President Barack Obama. This was an obvious, blatant political lie. Not only did it turn out to be untrue in retrospect, but when the President made this statement, he knew without any shadow of a reasonable doubt that he was deliberately lying to the American People to manipulate them towards favoring the Patient Protection and | Read More »
CNN reports Obama admin failed to ensure contractors could test Healthcare.gov
CNN has released a report that the main Healthcare.gov contractor CGI warned the Obama administration one month in advance that there were critical problems preventing them from ensuring a clean launch of the website. In particular, the administration was warned that testing was being obstructed.
The quote from the CGI memo leaves no doubt, if you understand the technical jargon used in the memo. I’ll take it apart and explain just how bad this situation really was.

RS Interview: Lt. Govenor David Dewhurst (R, Texas). #prolife
Yesterday, as you might have read, a federal judge ruled that several elements of Texas’s abortion reform laws were unconstitutional (although not the section that restricted abortions after 20 weeks). As you might recall, RedState spoke with Lt. Governor Dewhurst after the bill finally passed, and we spoke to him again yesterday: Short version: Texas is going to fight the court case, Texas is expecting | Read More »
Big Government once again turns on its Little Partners
I’m going to use a loaded word in this post, so I want to get it out of the way right up front. That word is fascism. We all know it’s bad – just about the worst thing a government can become, although I can think of a few million victims of communism who might argue the point, if we could use a Ouija board to | Read More »

The first supermax facility opened thirty years ago. Since then the number of facilities and the number of prisoners confined there has expanded by orders of magnitude. Now is the time to examine the practice and take it from the control of prison bureaucrats.

The three interlocking gears of the #Obamacare #FAIL.
Originally, I was going to use the step-stool analogy, only the problem here is that in order for Obamacare to work all three problems need to be resolved. At the moment the administration is more or less working on one full time, and desultorily working on another. The third has yet to be addressed. So… consider a set of gears, with three obstructions. All three | Read More »
Mitch McConnell in his Own Words
Watch carefully with the understanding that this is the most powerful, well-connected Republican in Washington, and you will see why we are losing. Enough said. Open thread Tuesday.

The Hungry and the Well Fed
In William F. Buckley’s mission statement for National Review, written in 1955, he did not mention winning elections. That’s not to say it is unimportant, unneeded, or unwanted. But it was not mentioned. In fact, Buckley wrote, “We believe that truth is neither arrived at nor illuminated by monitoring election results, binding though these are for other purposes, but by other means, including a study | Read More »
Tech at Night: Anonymous recruits elementary school student to commit crime. NSA Roundup.
How busy and important is FCC? They have time to worry about fluorescent lights in every small business in America, it seems.
More proof kids don’t belong on the Internet: the anarchoterrorists of Anonymous are now recruiting 12 year old elementary school students to commit crimes for them. Please take note, everyone. The Internet is a dangerous place that is not safe for kids.
That said, beware ideas for government-directed national cybersecurity plans or regulations, such as those proposed often by Democrats. They can’t even secure the Obamacare website, let alone tell you how to secure yours. Share information only. Pass CISPA, not new mandates.

Liberals Fear the Heritage Foundation and They Should
The other day on Morning Joe, Eugene Robison was on and lashed out at the Heritage Foundation for leading the fight against Obamacare. He, like many other concern trolling liberals, said “Heritage Foundation, for example, which, you know, you would think ought to be coming out with those sort of reasonable [health care] policies … now they’re like, one of the loudest voices thanks to | Read More »
