We Have a Plan. They Don’t.
RedState’s Action Center is active. Call your Senators and Congressman and tell them to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution. Tell them all to hold the line and don’t blink.

Tech at Night: The Grand Return
So I’ve been gone a while. Sorry about that. After Summer Games Done Quick and the Redstate Gathering, I was supposed to be back in action. But a case of the shingles took me down fast. I was a sleepless zombie in pain for a week. No fun. Was actually alright on Friday, but I had so much reading to do I couldn’t catch up in time to post on Friday, so here we are. Hang on.
So let’s start with Time-Warner and CBS. The two had their negotiations fall through with respect to carrying CBS on Cable, and so a blackout began. The left wants this as the pretext to more government, but let’s be clear about this. Government created this pickle. The way out of it was proposed way back when, and backed in Tech at Night, when Jim DeMint and Steve Scalise proposed legislation. It’s still the right answer.

Bloomberg Fail: Mayor’s Presser Aims Guns At Audience, Literally
Mayor Michael Bloomberg for the past several years has lectured law-abiding gun owners about crime rates and responsible firearm ownership while himself violating the cardinal rules of Gun Ownership 101 via Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and he’s done it again: It’s pretty insane that no one at this press conference is the least bit uncomfortable with the direction these guns are pointing, save perhaps for | Read More »

The ruling class war against voter ID
It’s funny how majority support is supposed to be decisive for some issues, but completely irrelevant for others. Voter ID laws are enormously popular with the general public, routinely scoring 70 to 80 percent approval. That stacks up pretty well against the most popular gun-control measures you could name. But the political class and its media allies will never portray voter ID as an urgent | Read More »
Chicago Tribune calls for a delay in implementating #obamacare.
The Chicago Tribune has finally reverted away from home-town boosterism of the President and is now telling him to, essentially, admit that his signature ‘achievement’ is toast: [President Barack Obama] crusaded for [obamacare] and has embraced its nickname. But he did not write the law. Congress did. Major changes are necessary — he has stipulated by his actions that this law as constituted cannot work | Read More »

The Great Debate
The RNC has a plan to limit debates and, in order to make the case and distract from one key issues, the RNC is using CNN and NBC as its whipping boys.

Nonetheless, the two are intrinsically linked, Jeff | Read More »
Obama’s Work to Welfare Program
Poor people are not stupid. When given the choice of working at a minimum wage job and not working and receiving at least the same quality of life… probably better as your leisure time goes way up… there is small wonder at the seeming contradiction between the intractable unemployment rate and the availability of jobs.

Mitch McConnell’s Electoral Magic
At present, there are twelve incumbent Republican Senators who plan to stand for reelection in 2014. The Cook Political Report rates all of the incumbents “Solid R,” with the exception of Susan Collins from the blue state of Maine who is rated “Likely R.” In other words, every Republican from a Romney 2012 state is not even remotely vulnerable.
