Lerner, IRS Caught Colluding with DOJ and FBI, Providing Illegal Taxpayer Data
Still wondering why Lois Lerner took the Fifth or if there is indeed a “smidgen” of corruption in the IRS targeting scandal?
It now appears that the IRS was not only engaged in an illegal witch hunt of conservatives applying for tax-exempt status, but that it was using illegally shared taxpayer data to actively push criminal investigation of already approved groups.

Hillary’s Operation Fast and Furious: al Qaeda edition
Most everyone is familiar with the infamous Operation Fast and Furious wherein the boneheaded Obama Justice Department decided along with the equally boneheaded Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives that letting people buy weapons illegally and transfer them to Mexican narco-cartels was just a jim-dandy way of generating public outrage at gun ownership. Now we’re seeing another phase of this come to light. The | Read More »
When It Is Over
In October of 2005, I was one of the first to experience the W, T, and F to come October 3rd. Here at RedState, I had legitimately been breaking news about George W. Bush’s Supreme Court appointments. First came John Roberts. Then came, not Samuel Alito, but Harriet Miers. I had a few good sources inside and outside the White House who had been feeding | Read More »

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s Texas. Texas Senator Ted Cruz won the Texas GOP straw poll. But what is striking is that he did so with 42% of the vote. Rand Paul and Ben Carson were tied for second place, and arguable we could throw Rick Perry in there too. All three were clustered around 12%. This is Texas. It is Cruz Country, as the Politico | Read More »
Where conservatives and the Tea Party can win
One of the favorite sports of the GOP establishment these days is predicting the end or the inevitable irrelevance of independent conservative candidates for the House and Senate. The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin takes up the cudgel in a story call Where can the tea party win? The tea party we have seen this primary season is outmatched easily when it takes on mainstream, | Read More »

Executive power: overreaching, overzealous, dream-dashing
Federal land management policy has shifted from managing working landscapes populated by productive resource-based communities of ranchers, farmers, loggers, and miners, to a recreational landscape intended to delight visitors. This is especially troubling in the West where the vast majority of many states is owned by the federal government.

Stop the Feast, Bowe Bergdahl is No Prodigal Son
[T]he father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate. Luke 15:22-24

Your Must Read of the Day
Six soldiers died after Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion. Democrats are attacking the GOP claiming the GOP is using this issue for purely partisan purposes.

If I Were Marco Rubio
Senator Marco Rubio spent the better part of last year joining together with Democrats to make a bipartisan push for amnesty and comprehensive open borders. The message to the third world was clear and unambiguous. We have not learned the mistakes of the past and we will continue granting amnesty because we lack the stomach to leave any illegals behind. Not surprisingly, starting late last | Read More »
Thad Cochran’s campaign reeks of flopsweat
Thad Cochran’s senate campaign is shrinking before our very eyes. Despite burning through millions of dollars and the credibility of the NRSC, the geriatric, though apparently still randy, Cochran finished behind challenger Chris McDaniel. Without the large scale expenditure of funds by go-along-get-along groups like the Chamber of Commerce and Haley Barbour’s “conservative” PAC and scurrilous attacks from the NRSC and the clownish Brad Dayspring | Read More »

The first to show up in the mail is hitting me perfectly where I am in the kitchen at the moment. For those of you who do not know, | Read More »
