To Change America
Stories continue to trickle out about coming Republican betrayals. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to push amnesty. Once primaries are over, Republicans are going to give up efforts to repeal Obamacare. They’ll tinker instead. The only way to change the direction of the country is to change the direction of the GOP. The only way to change the direction of the GOP is | Read More »
Tech at Night: Net Neutrality, Bitcoin, and the Courts
So I spent my Tech time tonight writing about Net Neutrality. I suggest reading that. It’s still a bad idea, because it’s founded on premises that aren’t true, and doesn’t address the real issues.
Meanwhile industry’s fighting it out over Net Neutrality 3.0: the return of the revenge. Who are Obama’s picked winners and losers, and are they winning or losing enough? Do they think they can bet more?
Speaking of picking winners and losers, we’ll have to see what comes out of Senate patent negotiations. Last time the Senate worked on this there was a good Republican bill and a bad Democrat bill.

Coffee and Markets got it wrong on Net Neutrality
In Monday’s Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson really went off in favor of Net Neutrality, the policy that twice has been struck down by the courts as an illegal power grab by the FCC, and is being promoted a third time by the Obama FCC at the behest of the radical socialist wing of his party.
Francis Cianfrocca I thought put in a good effort trying to be even handed about the whole thing, but I wanted to respond to a message like that making it to the front page of RedState. I understand where both of them are coming from, and I think it’s important to explain why Net Neutrality really is a terrible idea.

The Future of Post-modern Racism Is the Rich, Liberal SWPL
Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling, Registered Democrat, both say the most outrageous things. Perhaps each man’s Paleo diet has set back his brain several decades. They’re old, ignorant, and make Archie Bunker look like a Rhodes Scholar. The punch-lines write themselves now that he stupid enough to throw the chum in the water. To sum it up, Mr. Bundy offers us the old racist argument | Read More »

Union Rules: How Teamster Bosses Overruled UPS Members’ Votes
While unions often try to portray themselves as “democratic,” Teamster members of several local unions working at United Parcel Service have learned that this is not always the case. While most of today’s unions do allow union members to vote on certain matters, if the results do not match what union bosses want, these same unions most often have the ability to override their members | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the GE-Alstom deal, a potential huge new FCC proposal and why net neutrality is good for consumers.

A Key Ingredient in the Left’s Wins: Persistence
In the late, great Harold Ramis’ cinematic classic “Animal House,” perpetual Faber College student John Blutarsky succinctly summed up the Left’s approach to policy. Over? Did you say ‘over?’ Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!… It ain’t over now, ’cause when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Who’s with me? | Read More »

Silencing the Christians
This past Thursday night, before flying to Des Moines for the Family Leader’s Senate Forum, I spoke to the Alliance Defending Freedom in north Atlanta. The Alliance is a Christian ministry that works with lawyers around the country to defend religious liberty. The Alliance has helped students in colleges where secularists have tried to stop Christian voices from being heard. The Alliance has helped doctors | Read More »
They Lied to Us
We told you so. During the battle to defund Obamacare last fall, we all warned that the schism within the party was about more than strategy; it was about the future of Obamacare itself. At the time, our opponents within the party mocked our effort to defund Obamacare as a folly and even asserted that our strategy was distracting from the problems with Obamacare itself | Read More »
Why Primaries Matter
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who Republicans chose to respond to President Obama’s State of the Union address this year, says Republicans are giving up on Obamacare. They’re going to start tinkering with it instead, thereby setting the stage for it staying around. Once the GOP fixes all the objectionable parts, there’ll be no reason to scrap it, but there’ll also be no funding mechanisms. All the | Read More »
Taking on Iowa
There are five people running for the U.S. Senate in the Republican Primary in Iowa. Four of the five are real contenders and those four met at the Family Leader’s Senate Forum on Friday night. I had the pleasure of moderating the forum. I hate debates and I made that clear to the candidates. The modern American political debate consists of reporters with a liberal | Read More »
