They might be giants, or they might be boneheads
During the one thousandth performance of his “Nothing Is My Fault” cross-country tour, President Obama tried to laugh off the VA scandal, the IRS scandal, the crash of ObamaCare, and all the other problems you little citizens keep worrying your pretty little heads about by saying “that whole idea that government is the problem or the enemy is just not true,” but “some federal workers | Read More »
Hope or Despair… Your Choice.
After this week’s primary loss in Mississippi many conservative activists, who have tried to work within the GOP system, have begun to question the utility of voting for the GOP candidate in the General Election. We’ve already seen calls to back Travis Childers in Mississippi, as well as open debate as to whether conservatives will support Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. Unfortunately, these discussions are justified | Read More »
Obama seeks to expand US aid to Syrian rebels
A few weeks ago the blog, DuffelBlog, carried a funny send up on the Obama administration’s foreign policy called Special Forces Soldier Excited To Train Men Who Will Try To Kill Him In Five Years. But if there has been one “war” this administration has been successful at waging it has been the war on parody. As hard as it may be to believe, Barack | Read More »
Democrats vs. The First Amendment
In a lot of ways, it’s hard to discern an identifiable platform for the Democratic Party nowadays, but one thing they have openly and uniformly stood for recently has been opposition to the First Amendment. Harry Reid can’t open his mouth these days without some complaint about the Koch Brothers exercising their right to free speech falling out of it. Reid and 42 other Democrat | Read More »
Will The Real Bob Barr Stand Up?
Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A. King, the president of the Dustin Inman Society, former congressman, Libertarian presidential candidate, and current Republican congressional candidate Bob Barr said he would work to pass federal legislation that mandated the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. The survey itself appeared in the Marietta Daily Journal like this: *Q – Given that it | Read More »
Clean House at the @NRSC
It’s high time for something to be done about the group currently in charge at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It is a group that is ineffective at best in securing the support necessary to gain and maintain Republican support for its candidates, and you need to look no further than this primary season to see the effects of that. Leon Wolf pointed out a | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Shout Out to ColdWarrior’s Precinct Committeeman Project
I want to use today’s Watercooler to give a loud shout out to ColdWarrior’s Precinct Committeeman Project. When I started my delve into political activism a few years ago, I was constantly reading ColdWarrior’s diaries and comments here at RedState about becoming a precinct committeeman at the local level to change the party from within. Being the naturally nosy and inquisitive person that I am, | Read More »

So, would it really be THAT bad if we don’t win the Senate in November?
(from the diaries by streiff) The latest election results in Mississippi have generated considerable anger among conservatives. The tactics of the GOPe are disgraceful; there’s no question about that. And some are saying that it’s time to play hardball..Republicans in Mississippi should either NOT vote in the Senate race, or even better ( or worse, depending on one’s perspective) vote for the Democrat. That would | Read More »
Rotten at the Core
A lot of establishment campaign hands and consultants have been somewhat smug of late about their belief that they have beaten back the TEA Party challenge. So far this primary season, they lost a battle for an open seat in Nebraska (although they promptly pretended to have been in favor of Ben Sasse all along) and suffered a stunning defeat when Eric Cantor lost, but | Read More »
Abuses Too Far
Yesterday, Barack Obama lost his twelfth unanimous decision before the United States Supreme Court. His own Justices on the Court ruled against him. What is most striking is that Barack Obama is a former law professor. What is more striking is that his Attorney General, who is more invested in protecting the precious than upholding the law, did not try to protect his precious from | Read More »
The Uncivil Servants of The EPA
The USEPA has become a challenging place to sniff around for the truth. It appears they’ve steadily declined in both conduct and decorum over the last decade or so of being an inbred and completely unrestrained arrogant bureaucracy. Agency professional conduct was deemed contumacious back in 2003. It then degenerated to being pornographic. We now can conclude that it has become positively emunctory in nature. | Read More »
Export Import Bank stumbles toward a final exit
Yesterday the Export Import Bank had a bad day at the hearing chaired by Congressman Jeb Hensarling: The future of the U.S. Export-Import Bank was thrown further into doubt on Wednesday after an influential conservative lawmaker labeled the bank an example of corporate cronyism that benefits multi-nationals at the expense of taxpayers and smaller companies. Tea Party Republicans, led by Texas Representative Jeb Hensarling, have | Read More »
Unanimous Supreme Court Strikes Down “Extreme” Law Aimed at Silencing Pro-Life Speech
Today, a unanimous Supreme Court struck down a pro-abortion Massachusetts law which made it illegal for anyone to speak on the public sidewalks – otherwise known as exercising the First Amendment – within 35 feet of abortion clinics, calling the measure an “extreme step” in silencing free speech.

Congressional leaders: Comprehensive immigration reform is dead
If true, it is certainly good news. Congressional leaders of both parties are telling the Washington Post that comprehensive immigration reform is dead for the foreseeable future: The two-year attempt to push immigration reform through Congress is effectively dead and unlikely to be revived until after President Obama leaves office, numerous lawmakers and advocates on both sides of the issue said this week. The slow | Read More »
