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 »
NBC: up to 10.5 million on track to have @BarackObama/Democratic party take away their health insurance.
Actually, before I get started on that… please watch this related ad on Terry McAuliffe, and his uncritical – not to say, slavish – devotion to one of the greatest American civic disasters since Prohibition. I refer, of course, to Obamacare: Got that? Good. Go help Ken Cuccinelli.
Mitch McConnell Ready to Fight GOP Base
Everything you ever thought about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is wrong. He really is a fighter after all. At a recent fundraiser with 300 K street donors, as reported by Politico, Mitch McConnell was in a combative mood. According to one attendee, he was “in fighting mode.” No, he was not in a fighting mode against Obama and the Democrats. As he spoke at | Read More »
Face Off: Healthcare.gov Girl Replacement Contest (pics!)
The young lady known variously as the face of healthcare.gov, the Obamacare girl, or glitch girl, has been replaced in the wake of a massive internet and cable news effort to uncover her true identity. The speculation as to the reason behind taking her face off the site has run rampant, but we here at RedState have the answer. It’s a simple matter of truth | Read More »
New York’s #Obamacare ripping old people away from their doctors.
Because to Governor Andrew Cuomo – not to mention Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand – old people are just numbers on a screen. Numbers on a screen that don’t reliably vote Democratic, to boot. The background is that New York’s Medicare Advantage program is having doctors being removed wholesale from the network: “one health carrier alone, UnitedHealthcare, is terminating contracts with up to 2,100 | Read More »
Obamacare Horror Stories
Last week, we asked for your personal Obamacare horror stories, as more and more middle class families are forced to surrender their dignity and grovel before government for their health insurance. Here is the latest from Patricia in North Carolina. You can email me your story at email@example.com. I am a 62 year old woman who has an individual policy with BCBS of North Carolina. | Read More »
Conservatives Need More Carrot, Not Just More Stick
Fearing us isn’t enough. We need to show Beltway Republicans that we can reward them.

The Great Society and The Great Pumpkin
“We have just concluded the 5th fiscal year since President Obama took office. During those five years, the federal government has spent a total $3.7 trillion on approximately 80 different means-tested poverty and welfare programs. The common feature of means-tested assistance programs is that they are graduated based on a person’s income and, in contrast to programs like Social Security or Medicare, they are a | Read More »
Powerful Boston Teamster Boss Faces Suspension For Threatening To ‘Punish’ Members
In the mid 1980s, the President’s Commission on Organized Crime issued a report stating that the four major labor unions were under the influence of organized crime and run undemocratically at the detriment of their members. At the top of the list was the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. In 1989, in order to settle a RICO suit by the U.S. Justice Department, the Teamsters’ International | Read More »
#Obamacare watch: How the Democrats threw a pregnant woman off her insurance.
All in the name of “helping” her, of course. Fullerton resident Jennifer Harris thought she had a great deal, paying $98 a month for an individual plan through Health Net Inc. She got a rude surprise this month when the company said it would cancel her policy at the end of this year. Her current plan does not conform with the new federal rules, which | Read More »
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should check his House in-box. #obamacare
There are any number of House bills that were duly passed in the last few months that happen to deal with handling the individual mandate. Including, I believe, one from September 30th, which in retrospect is a deal that Mark Begich, Kay Hagan, Mary Landrieu, Mark Pryor, and Jeanne Shaheen (at the very least) kind of wish that the Senate Majority Leader had taken, given | Read More »
Democrats resolutely ignoring #Obamacare gnawing on their electoral entrails.
There are times when I wonder whether Barack Obama really wants the Democrats to retake the House of Representatives. Aside from everything else (with ‘everything else’ ranging from ‘the Democrats would have to strain to pretend to be moderates again’ to ‘Obama would lose his favorite devil figures’), it’d mean that Barack Obama would have to interact more with… with… with Debbie. Democrats will be | Read More »
