Placating the Envirogelicals With the Fierce Urgency of Eleven Years From Now
As many of the United States are seeing record early snow fall, the President has gone to China to cut a deal with the Chicoms on global warming. The left wants us to know it is a major, pressing issue. In fact, if we don’t do something immediately, Miami is going to be under water, there is no stopping it, and we sure as heck | Read More »
Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber: ACA Passed Because Americans Are Stupid
Jonathan Gruber is the gift that keeps on giving for conservatives on Obamacare. We’ve already covered his remarks on subsidies for people on the federal exchanges. Now, he’s back in the news again. On October 17 of last year, he spoke at a forum at the University of Pennsylvania’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, and he said, in essence, that Obamacare passed because American | Read More »
Scott Walker’s Back In Office and the John Doe Investigation is Back, too.
Most RedState readers are well aware of the John Doe investigation going on against Scott Walker and his campaign organization. For those who don’t know, a brief description, courtesy of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: Separate but related criminal investigations initiated by Milwaukee County prosecutors have examined events and activities during Scott Walker’s time as Milwaukee County executive and as governor. Prosecutors have conducted the probes under the | Read More »
Grassley’s revenge? Here’s hoping.
File this under Not even remotely surprising: Eligible to pick among a trio of committee chairmanships in the coming Republican-majority U.S. Senate, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley has settled on the powerful Judiciary Committee. “Oversight is too often overlooked as Congress focuses on new legislation,” Grassley told The Des Moines Register in a statement this morning. “So, anybody who knows my efforts in this area | Read More »
Who *will* we get as a nominee for 2016?
I understand Allahpundit’s concern, here: Nominate a guy like [Ted] Cruz and he can spend the entire campaign pandering to the middle since conservatives feel 100 percent sure he’ll govern as a conservative in office. Obama benefited from the same logic on the left six years ago: He could reassure Rick Warren and evangelicals that he believed in traditional marriage with nary a peep from | Read More »
The Midterm Vindication of Ted Cruz
Jeffrey Lord, a former aide to Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan, writes that, the 2013 shutdown worked and despite his vilification by the Republican establishment won. As you surely recall, the Cruz effort to defund the ever unpopular ObamaCare resulted in the biased media wing of the Democrats’ Party falling in line for President Obama and blaming his shutdown on Republicans and Conservatives. Worse was the dozens of members of the Republican establishment | Read More »

Nobody at Vox.com Has Read The Fourteenth Amendment
Vox.com has published an “analysis” claiming that Republican-run states could legally just abolish the popular vote in presidential elections. It is obvious from the fact that this was actually published, and has not been corrected three days later, that neither the author, Vox Executive Editor Matthew Yglesias, nor anybody else in the site’s editorial chain has read the Fourteenth Amendment. Yglesias starts out his post, | Read More »
Barack Obama is a Sore Loser
After the 2012 election, a not insignificant amount of digital ink was devoted to covering various Republicans’ “sore loser” responses to Barack Obama winning a second term, but as with so many things regarding the Left, there’s a lot of projection here. As we have seen in his responses to the 2014 midterms, Obama himself has an inability to suffer defeat gracefully. In a news conference | Read More »

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of this year in the twenty-first century, we pause to honor our veterans on this Veterans Day and remember that first of the great world wars, which ended the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. To those who served, we thank you. In Flanders fields the poppies | Read More »

There Is No Obamacare Briar Patch
One of the favorite hobbies of liberals is warning Republicans about the supposed political dangers of repealing Obamacare. The latest iteration of this particular liberal fantasy comes via the communist agitprop rag Salon, which warns ominously that if the Supreme Court eliminates subsidies in the states that do not have their own exchanges, that “SCOTUS could roil the GOP: How the new threat to Obamacare | Read More »
The Treasuries of God and the Treasuries of Man
We are a week removed from the “drubbing,” as the media chose to call what happened. The elation of conservatives is well deserved. I’ve noticed a sense of optimism coming from a lot of my politically connected evangelical friends who seem to think we have gotten a reprieve. I encourage the sense of optimism, but also must caution two things. First, conservatives have descended into | Read More »
Tech at Night: Post-election, Barack Obama endorses far left extremism at FCC
Back in June I warned about the latest plan by the Net Neutrality extremists. They’re playing a shill game where one side promotes one illegal idea, the Open Internet order already thrown out by the Courts, and the other side promotes something even more extreme, a total hijacking of the Internet through a procedure called Title II Reclassification. Monday, Barack Obama endorsed that extremist procedure, | Read More »
Don’t Let Victory Cover Over Weakness
The Democrats, in defeat, have one advantage the defeated always have — they get a more clear eyed assessment of defeat than winners get through the glassy eyes of celebration. We on the right are all still giddy from defeating Barack Obama and the Democrats last Tuesday. And yes, Democrats, it was a defeat for the President. But in the giddiness, we should not fail | Read More »
Hold it: Snopes isn’t convinced on this Gruber thing.
Things Snopes.com is great for: Debunking that thing on Facebook everyone is sharing. Letting you know if a celebrity really did that. Easing your mind by telling you there is no dead girl under your bed waiting to kill you if you don’t past this post along. Things Snopes.com is not great for: Political commentary. Good lessons in factchecking. A clean and simple user interface. | Read More »
