Yet Another Terrible Idea: States Consider Combining Their Failed ObamaCare Exchanges

The Ascension of Emma Sulkowicz
Sacrificed To Create Mattress Girl. Sometimes getting what you want requires you to grind another person’s name into the dirt. Emma Sulkowicz wanted her fifteen minutes of fame. She wanted to join the Post-modern Pantheon of the Symbolically Oppressed (PPSO). She did so as “Mattress Girl” – avatar of the rape victim. In order to do so, she needed a scapegoat. | Read More »
What is in a picture?
What we think is unusual or touching says a lot about us as a society. Sometimes the item of attention must be taken in context to fully appreciate it. A few weeks ago, the media were abuzz with the obviously mentally unbalanced Bruce Jenner’s journey from man to mutilated-man. In a previous, more rational era, Jenner would have found gainful employment in carnival sideshow and | Read More »
The Beginning of a New Trail for Reporters
A political consultant, earlier this year, told me where she thought the beginning of the end of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President would begin. She spoke of it matter of factly. She said that on more than one occasion, as a company had business before a foreign government, President Clinton would take a trip to that country, get a meeting with the leader of that | Read More »

California’s Assault on Crisis Pregnancy Centers
If anything is a threat to the pro-abortion movement, it’s the existence of crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) across the nation. Those who find themselves inside such a place believe options are limited and time is of the essence. No matter how they became pregnant, they are in need of and proactively seeking help for themselves and their unborn child. Compassion is key when dealing with | Read More »
Sunset the Tax Code
We now have six announced Republican candidates for the 2016 campaign. We will soon begin hearing an endless stream of campaign plans and promises, from repealing Obamacare to securing our borders, to simplifying our tax code and yes, even abolishing the Internal Revenue Service.

Governor Huckabee Will Address the RedState Gathering
Governor Mike Huckabee is going to kick off our Saturday morning at the RedState Gathering. We are delighted he will be with us. Governor Huckabee has decided to bypass the Iowa Straw Poll altogether as several of the other candidates will also do. Governor Huckabee won the Iowa Caucus in 2008, surprising a lot of people. He didn’t run in 2012. But he is in | Read More »
Obama is Putting Our Nuclear Navy at Risk
The search for the next Chief of Naval Operations has not drawn much interest from the media, but there’s good reason it should. By nominating Admiral John Richardson, the current head of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, President Obama is jeopardizing a tradition of excellence stretching back since America first developed nuclear submarines. John Lehman, who served as President Reagan’s Secretary of the Navy for | Read More »
The Left is Frothing, Raving and Losing Its Mind Over the Fall of House Duggar
Promoted from the diaries – Aaron Nothing causes the lunatic Left to froth and rave and lose its mind like Christianity in action. Whenever something awful happens and Christians do what Christians are commanded to do: forgive, the left simply draws a blank. That’s just a place in their brains where the door is permanently locked (even those on the left who call themsevles Christian). As | Read More »

The Left Still Struggles With Military Heroism
An interesting thing played out online yesterday. The left, accidentally, showed just how little it understands the military and our nation’s military history. It all started with Battleground Texas of Wendy Davis fame. They tweeted out a picture in honor of Memorial Day. The only problem was I’m really sure they had no idea on the day started by the Grand Army of the Republic | Read More »
The Great Democratic Experiment in NYC isn’t working
Noted mayor with communist ties Bill de Blasio, who currently sits upon a throne in New York City is receiving some less than favorable news. And, by less than favorable, I mean his favorability is really low right now. Approval ratings of mayors in the middle of first term: Michael Bloomberg 32% Bill de Blasio 44% That chart is courtesy WNBC/Marist and Qunnipiac, and is | Read More »
