Has John McCain Lost His Mind?
It seems that you can’t go a day lately without Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) appearing on television advocating the United States invade another country. On a recent particularly snarky appearance, when asked to name one country we absolutely shouldn’t invade no matter what the circumstance, an answer eluded him. Not even Canada, really? Now of course, the context for the conversation was the Middle East, | Read More »
Philosophy In Action: The Arts, Sciences, The Economy and The World.
Image Credit: Brian Hillegas. Truth is Beauty and Beauty is Truth. That is all you know and that is all you need to know. – Keats. So I crack open the Internet and read the news. It just about all vapes off the exhaust nozzle. DOOOOOOOMMM!!! I tell you. Doom, on a pale horse. We see it in the arts, in the realm of science, | Read More »
John McCain on the Decline & Fall of the United States Senate
The Senate is in a bad way these days. Not that the Presidency and the House are functioning all that well, but under the leadership of Harry Reid since January 2007, the U.S. Senate has reached levels of dysfunction unparalleled in its history, and presided over eight years of economic stagnation and bitterly polarized and increasingly petty and juvenile politics. Reid has ruined the Senate’s | Read More »
Richard Dawkins: Islamophobe and Sexist
After making atheist provocateur Richard Dawkins a deity himself for his vitriolic attacks on Christianity, the left is suddenly experiencing a case of tightly wound panties over the discovery that Dawkins doesn’t reserve his misanthropy for Christianity. He also thinks the feminist focus of “rape culutre” is ridiculous and that Islam is violent and dangerous. Dawkins may or may not be particularly smart. Obtaining a | Read More »
We, America, Created Ray Rice
Ray Rice faced the media today for the first time since he knocked his fiancee unconscious and dragged her to his hotel room. I didn’t watch; I have little interest in hearing questions from the same media that insists upon calling Rice an “alleged” woman beater even though he was literally caught on tape and even though he’s essentially admitted doing it. Neither do I | Read More »
Jonathan Gruber and Obamacare: The Tale of the Tapes
Here at RedState, we’ve already spilled a lot of digital ink on Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s supposed “speak-o” that government subsidies for Obamacare wouldn’t be available in states that didn’t set up their own exchanges. Now, American Commitment has a new video out showing us in a way that should be beyond a doubt that Jonathan Gruber’s assertion was no mere misspeak. He made the | Read More »
BREAKING: House GOP Pull Their Immigration Bill
House Republican leaders do not have the votes to fund Barack Obama’s amnesty/immigration plan. So they pulled it. The House leaders are thus far insistent they will not close the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They would rather be embarrassed in their failure to do anything than do the right thing and close this program. They even had some Democrat support, but could | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ The Same-Sex Marriage Trap
Progressives are language manipulation masters. Their arguments for or against an issue are designed to corner you with words created to make the ill-prepared and/or the simple-minded retreat from the argument. And they love to play victim and scream about their rights being violated if you do not cave into their demands. Such is the case with those whose mission is to redefine marriage. If | Read More »

Surprise outcome. Incompetent ATF accepts incompetence as the norm
While nearly everyone is familiar with Operation Fast & Furious, the failed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) scheme to create facts that would lead to gun control laws in the United States, fewer are familiar with a similar program run in Milwaukee, WI called Operation Fearless. Where Fast & Furious was a combination of maliciousness and epic incompetence that has led to | Read More »
Rasmussen: Americans No Longer Believe We’re Winning the War on Terror
Rasmussen might have gone downhill over the past couple of years, but this poll is still noteworthy regardless. The number of Americans who believe we’re winning the War on Terror has dropped to its lowest point in the company’s 10 years of opinion tracking. As the poll notes: A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe | Read More »

This is Inexcusable
House Republican Leaders have a deal for conservatives. After giving Barack Obama a blank check with the debt ceiling, if they will now give him $659 million then and only then will John Boehner give conservatives a vote on shutting down DACA. This really is inexcusable. DACA is the chief incentive inspiring people to cross the border. The administration intends to expand DACA. The House | Read More »
Tech at Night: Your periodic reminder that the FCC is out of control
It’s been a while since I just said it: The Obama FCC is recklessly grabbing power, out of any statutory or Constitutional controls. It does what it wants, when it wants, with the goal of taking as much power as it can, in order to establish greater state control of the digital economy.
Under FCC, we’re not under the rule of law, we’re under the rule of man.
