Quis Custodiat Ipsos Custodies? The news coming out of Ferguson, MO caused me to experience the equivalent of a bad acid flashback without the initial fun of tripping on LSD. I went back in time to 1999. I was in Grad School at UCLA getting vastly over-credentialed for the job market and educated far beyond my limited frontiers of cognitive ability. | Read More »
The situation in Ukraine is entering a critical phase. As Russian troops mass on the border with Ukraine and a bogus “humanitarian” convoy has moved towards Ukraine from Russia. Tonight there are reports that a Russian armored column has crossed the Russo-Ukraine frontier. A column of Russian armored personnel carriers (APCs) has reportedly crossed Russia’s border with Ukraine. The APCs had earlier been seen traveling alongside a | Read More »
Our good friends at the Media Research Center have begun a new video campaign called #LeanOver taking on the liberal bias of MSNBC. The first of these videos by RedState contributor Ben Howe has just been released and is well worth a watch. Check it out. According to MRC communications director Scooter Schaefer: “The idea behind the #LeanOver parody was to show how laughably | Read More »
The kerfuffle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is all in the news right now. Clinton, who sees her coronation as Democrat presidential candidate for the 2016 as a done deal, is trying to establish some daylight between herself and her former boss on foreign policy. There is a good reason for that. Other than coasting through 2009 with an “I’m not George Bush” strategy | Read More »
Here is an example of a blog post with a title designed to piss you off. It is meant to immediately put you on edge because it is inflammatory. It is a half truth architected in a manner to upset people who are familiar with the story of the well known American Hero, Chris Kyle. Most people know that Chris Kyle was actually shot and | Read More »
There has been no shortage of discussions around recent comments and articles written in the wake of the tragic suicide of actor Robin Williams. From Rush Limbaugh to Matt Walsh, there’s obviously a lot of emotions built into agreement or disagreement with one another on the question of suicide. In light of this, it would be hard to deny that suicide is something that affects | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Allysen Efferson are joined by Jed Babbin to discuss the Hillary vs. Obama battle, the failed foreign policy of Hillary’s time as Secretary of State and who in the GOP can make a credible challenge in 2016.
At the outset, let me note right up front that I am opposed to any form of violence that involves the looting, theft, or destruction of innocent third parties. I realize that this is happening right now in Ferguson and I find it inexcusable and indefensible. That having been said, I think it’s high time conservatives re-examined their gut-level reactions to what is going on | Read More »
One would think that when a senior editor at publishing giant Simon & Schuster received a book proposal from a literary agent representing the platoon-mates of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl she would have been excited. After all, Bergdahl, who was with the Taliban for nearly five years, is something of a celebrity. Obama did his customary victory shuffle in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents as | Read More »
Jason Carter is the Democrats’ nominee for Governor of Georgia. His top fundraiser flew to Aspen, CO on Tuesday to champion a carbon tax to fight “global warming.” Carter’s fundraiser also called those who oppose destroying the economy to deal with global warming “nutcases.” Do not be surprised.

This is going to be quick tonight, but I have an important point to make. Our wired Internet is a lot better than critics make it out to be in this country, when you adjust for population density. Naturally no matter how good it is, we still want it to improve over time. If we want that to happen, we need to create incentives for investment.
And it’s basic economics: If you want to incentivize ISPs to increase your data rates, then you want to give them an economic incentive to get you as many bits as possible: It’s time to return to metered Internet access. Pay for what you use.
In March, 2014 Cliven Bundy found himself targeted by the professional police force of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) which justified its actions using a trivial offense that had placed Bundy on the wrong side of America’s supercharged legal code. BLM showed an appalling willingness to escalate the situation to overwhelming government force by deploying a police force which was a small army in | Read More »
