#IASen: While Campaigning for Braley, Biden Admits Obama Economy Bad for Middle Class
We can add another one to the long list of Joe Biden’s gaffes. While on a campaign stop at a rally for Senate candidate in Iowa yesterday, Joe Biden admitted what most of us on the Right already know: the Obama economy has been horrible for the middle class. The Washington Free Beacon caught it, and here’s the most important part: “But you know the truth: The | Read More »

Very Close to DOOM!! for Colorado Dems
Colorado has been shifting underneath the feet of the Democrats this election cycle. While many have believed Colorado to be a blue state, especially after the 2012 election, events in 2013 along with events during the campaign have proven otherwise. The latest ballot returns show a large lead for Republicans in key counties across the state, and it appears may be the next Senator for | Read More »
There’s No Such Thing as a “Self-Radicalized” Islamic Terrorist
It’s a term you are bound to hear a lot of, along with “lone wolf” and “recent convert to Islam,” in the wake of two separate terrorist attacks in Canada and one in New York City last week.
Yet there is no such thing, and the label, more than mere semantics, trivializes and belies the reality we face.

Hillary Gives Us The Business, David Perdue Gives Us The Truth
In 2008, it took a few public speaking appearances to really sell the Democratic Party on Barack Obama’s credentials as their party’s candidate in that year’s Presidential Election. In 2014, Hillary Rodham Clinton is back on the stump again. There are certain things she doesn’t believe you should ever let people tell you. The truth for example. Hillaryworld™ is revealed in it’s disingenuous, fact-free glory | Read More »

Put Kaci Hickox Back in a Tent
The continuing carnival of the absurd with respect to nurse Kaci Hickox has continued today as Morning Joe reports (no video or other confirmation yet) that Hickox has announced that she will not abide by quarantine protocols upon her return to Maine, where she lives. Most of the media over the last 24 hours has focused on the predictable yet infuriating question of whether Chris | Read More »
Obama Reveals The Stakes Of This Election
In the Senate races this year, a vote for a Democrat—any Democrat—is a vote to empower President Barack Obama. But listening to Democrats on the campaign trail, you could be forgiven for not recognizing that they embrace the Obama agenda. They know that Americans disapprove of the president, so they know that admitting their support for him would be terrible for their electoral prospects. But | Read More »
Scoring On Your Own Goal
Michelle Nunn has fired her primary weapon: a TV ad running in Georgia featuring Dad, former Senator Sam Nunn. Dad: I may be a little biased… Michelle: I think you’re a lot biased, dad… Dad: But I know Michelle would make a big difference for Georgia, and for our nation. I certainly agree. A catastrophic difference. An endorsement by the former Chairman of the Senate | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Future is Subsidized Data
As much as the extreme left wants you to fear anything other than a socialist Internet, Obamacare-style where your only choices are government dictated, the future is in innovation like subsidized data.
The fact is, government will always make this stuff worse if we try to “fix” it.

When I Survey
We stand a week from the final midterm election of Barack Obama’s Presidential career. When I survey the field I do not see a wave election for the GOP. I never have seen a wave in the polling, at least not at the national level. At the local level, I think we will see a lot of what we saw in 2010. It will be | Read More »
Dick Cheney Secured Most Of The Money We Spend On Ebola Research
To hear the Democratic Party scaremongers attempting to weaponize Ebola (as a political issue, of course), you would think the heartless and E-vil GOP had deliberately and maliciously slashed the spending on Ebola research so that you, yes you could die in coruscating agony. In reality, this is about as accurate and true as ’s pathetic accusations that Thom Tillis helped kill Trayvon. You see | Read More »
The Fight for Ticket Fairness in Michigan
Amongst American ideals, the right to private property is among the most important. We are allowed to buy, own, and sell our property as we like, when we like. It’s just how it works. Well, it’s how it’s supposed to work but, in Michigan, that’s not always the case. Got tickets to sell? I’m afraid you can’t just sell them as you wish. “It’s not | Read More »

The LGBT Lobby vs. Academic Debate
On Sunday’s RedState Weekly Briefing (which you should totally check out and also tune in to every Sunday at 7 p.m. EST, as well as listen to our live election night coverage), I gave a brief, rambling statement on progressivism and projection. The main thesis of that rant was simple: The Left is notorious for using any attack necessary to shut down debate, while at | Read More »
Pro-Gambling Lobbyists Head Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling
The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling is a relatively new group headed by two former politicians-turned-lobbyists, former New York Republican Gov. George Pataki and former Denver Democrat Mayor Wellington Webb. It wasn’t that long ago that both former politicians were vocal proponents of their respective states’ pro-gaming and lottery policies. Gov. Pataki was labeled by The New York Times in 2001 as “perhaps the most pro-gambling governor the state has ever | Read More »
