Mitch McConnell goes into fetal position. Harry Reid is the new leader of the Senate.
Sad and disappointing but not a surprise. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% has showed himself to be the gutless wimp that we’ve all known he is. He has given the Democrats exactly what they have been demanding. In other words, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54%, as majority leader, has shown the same feckless, flaccidity that he showed while minority | Read More »
FCC Democrat Mignon Clyburn asks for Net Neutrality delay
As FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai has pointed out, the FCC’s been remarkably deficient in transparency as it’s rushed to implement the President’s extreme plan to regulate the Internet according to 1930s-era phone regulations. It’s now coming out that the 300 page plan is so extreme that even Mignon Clyburn, long time pro-title II FCC Commissioner is asking for a delay in order to make less | Read More »
Palestinian Authority Directly Responsible for Terrorist Attacks on Israel
My colleagues and I at the ACLJ have long warned about the dangers of embracing the Palestinian “unity government” formed by the Palestine Authority and the terrorist group Hamas.
Now a federal court has held that the Palestinian Authority itself is directly responsible for terrorist attacks carried out on Israeli civilians.

CNN becomes @voxdotcom
One of the mysteries of the ISIS movement is the attraction it has for some Western women. I wrote about this earlier (here) and now another case has arisen where is seems as though three British girls may have run off to fulfill their dreams of being sex slaves. The one thing we know for sure, jobs and midnight basketball would not have prevented it. | Read More »
RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings: Week 4
Welcome again to the RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings! This week, we have fundamentally changed how the candidates were ordered. Instead of ranking them according to the tyrannical and completely arbitrary whims of your not very humble author, the candidates were ranked on a scale of 1-10 by a panel of current and former RedState contributors. These contributors were asked to rank the candidates solely | Read More »
Mitch McConnell is folding like a cheap suit
Often we are told about the importance of doing the hard right as opposed to the easy wrong. The Senate GOP, however, is confronted with the option of doing the easy right or the hard wrong. Guess which one Mitch McConnell is opting for. The issue facing Congress on the Department of Homeland Security budget is not trivial. What is at stake is nothing less than | Read More »

Hollywood’s Wage Gap
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Mollie Hemingway to discuss Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech about the wage gap, why the numbers are not nearly as bad as liberals make you believe and why Hollywood should address its own pay issues.

Ajit Pai and Joshua Wright: Models for the new reformist Regulator
I think many of us knew that Barack Obama would go further than previous Presidents in his extremism, when it came to regulator. However I never expected he’d go so far, he’d create a tremendous backlash from normally quiet, ‘technocratic’ regulators. I put technocratic in quotes because while left-wing Democrat regulators have long been activist ideologues, the Republicans tended to be more modest. Not anymore. | Read More »
#WaronWomen: Hillary Clinton, Wage Gap Perpetuator
With the 2016 campaign slowly but steadily ramping up and Hillary Clinton being the probable Democratic nominee, you can certainly expect the Left to try to make the so-called “War on Women” an issue again. You can probably expect the widely debunked “wage gap” to be brought up. So, when Hillary Clinton makes a statement like this: 20 years ago, women made 72 cents on | Read More »
Religious Liberty Supporters Are Helping the KKK
Money can make people say stupid stuff. Former Georgia Attorney General Mike Bowers, whose name is forever tied to the Supreme Court case of Bowers v. Hardwick, is “evolving” on gay rights. It comes as he gets on the payroll of Georgia Equality, a leftwing advocacy group in Georgia. Bowers, you see, is now a lobbyist. And today he will make the case that people | Read More »
Today the Media Will Claim the KKK is Coming Back. Here’s Why.
First they said the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“RFRA”) would open the door to child abusers. When it was pointed out that RFRA has been on the books for over 20 years in 19 states plus the federal government and not a single child abuser has successfully been able to use RFRA, they needed another plan. Well, they’ve come up with one. And not only | Read More »
Tech at Night: Just how bad is Net Neutrality?
They tell us that regulating things like a utility is good, when it comes to Net Neturality, but New Zealand is clear evidence to the contrary. It’s no wonder a national consensus is forming against Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet. Polls are against it and even Google is realizing how wrong it is.
Rahm’s struggle for power
In case you didn’t know, Chicago mayor and Obama ally Rahm Emanuel is up for re-election and… it actually isn’t looking very good. Emanuel has mounted an extremely expensive, high-powered push to get past 50 percent of the vote—the threshold he needs to win reelection outright and avoid an April 7 runoff. The X-factor in the race seems to be black voters, so Emanuel has | Read More »
McConnell Flashes His Yellow Belly
Right now, this is the headline at CNN.com. For those who don’t know, the CNN.com website is regularly orders of magnitude more liberal than their television broadcast. When I first loaded the site, I was stunned to find that even CNN.com was reporting the DHS shutdown story in this way: But then I thought, why wouldn’t it be reported this way? What other way is | Read More »
The Greek Socialists are Full of It
Back on January 25th, Greece’s Coalition of the Radical Left, also known as Syriza, won a plurality of the vote in the country’s elections, and joined with a smaller party, they became the country’s governing party. The most important part of Syriza’s platform was that they were radically anti-austerity. In his victory speech, leader and now Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said the following, per the | Read More »
