The Cruz Conundrum
Ted Cruz became the first Republican to officially announce his candidacy today, which means the Silly Season has really and truly begun in earnest. I like a lot as a Senator and I think that he will bring a lot of energy to the debates and that he will have important points to make about the value of standing by one’s principles. Although I have serious | Read More »
The Fair and Relevant Question
With beginning his run for the Presidency today, I should make public the question I’ve suggested to reporters in private. Senator Cruz is for certain going to be joined by , who will announce in a few weeks. , who I think is underrated in his bid for the Presidency even though Jeb Bush is intent on locking up Florida, will also most likely declare | Read More »
Welcome to the Arena, Senator Cruz
will today announce he is running for President. At our very first RedState Gathering, Ted Cruz showed up. He was the Solicitor General of Texas. I did not know him, but he’d gone to law school with a friend and several other friends highly recommended him. He stood on stage to speak along with another guy named . Both of them dazzled the crowd in | Read More »
Kill the ‘Doc Fix’
John Fund has a good piece on the coming “doc fix” fight. The ‘doc fix’ comes from a congressional mandate cutting the amount of money doctors are paid for treating medicare patients. A lot of doctors have stopped treating them. Every few years, Congress comes back and tinkers some more. Now and are collaborating on a new formula under which doctors will be paid. As | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats still lust after taking away people’s ammunition.
The Democrats still don’t want people to have any ammunition, because they don’t want them to have guns. They’re just less open and honest about it now.

Barack Obama And Iran: How Far Will One Man Go To Validate His Nobel Peace Prize? And What Price Will The World Pay?
Thirty two years ago Ronald Reagan introduced his Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) to the world with this quote: “We maintain the peace through our strength; weakness only invites aggression.” Derided by the left as being scientifically impossible and having the potential of reigniting the arms race with the Soviets, “Star Wars” as they called it, became a sufficient worry for the Soviets that it actually | Read More »
Iowa Democrats: Save us, Martin O’Malley, you’re our only hoHAHAHA sorry.
It’s so bad for the Democrats right now that they’re actually thinking that Martin O’Malley isn’t a completely awful alternative.

At Iranian Nuke Talks, Toughest Stance is being Taken by…France?
Even though history supposedly began in 2009, I’m old enough to remember when the French were derided as cheese eating surrender monkeys. Now, under a socialist government no less, they are standing up for the free world where America won’t. The news from Lausanne, Switzerland, is that they are the ones expressing the most skepticism about the deal pushed by the Obama administration that will, | Read More »

Coming to Terms with Kingsman: The Secret Service
Warning: You are entering a spoiler zone. Over a month after its release, Kingsman: The Secret Service seems primed to exceed all pre-release expectations with a US Box office haul that has already exceeded $110 million not to mention healthy international returns (including, for reasons no one seems to understand, an already ardent cult following in South Korea). Even this week, Kingsman looks prepared to | Read More »
Moloch Must be Appeased
Democrats in Washington, DC are tying up both a human trafficking bill and the confirmation of Loretta Lynch for one simple reason: to an elected Democrat Senator there is no higher good than more dead unborn children. The Senate Democrats’ behavior in this fight has removed all doubt whatsoever about their motives in this regard. The fight here is not about expanding the legality of | Read More »
A New Civil Rights Movement This Isn’t
From the diaries… For all the rejecting of the past, many of the disgruntled in the current generation are fixated on connecting themselves to it. Assuming that you share a similar struggle romanticizes a current one, and props up beliefs and actions which otherwise might be dismissed by others. While continuing a legitimate fight for a cause may continue for decades, breathing life into | Read More »
Re Mandatory Voting: Just How Much Can They Make Us Care?
Can the government make me care? No. But they can darn sure make you act like it. How so, you may ask? America is a free country? Only because our current indebtedness vastly exceeds anything we could claim as equity. You are not free. That died when the Obamacare Individual Mandate was ruled constitutional by Chief Justice Roberts and fellow Constitution-Haters in black. If the | Read More »
Tech at Night: It’s time we restored rule of law to regulators like FTC
Previously at RedState we discussed how FTC is as out of control as FCC and we need a new breed of regulator to fix it. Well now it turns out FTC has the same transparency issues FCC has. FTC took secret testimony against Sysco in the US Foods situation. A Federal judge is now having to order them to release information. Unusual, except in the | Read More »
There are Terrorist Attacks in Yemen and the Pentagon’s Lost Weapons There
If you’ve been following the news recently, you probably know that Yemen’s ISIS affiliate is claiming responsibility for a series of suicide bombings at mosques in the country on today. The death toll right now sits at 135 people, and at least 345 have been injured. None of this should be truly surprising for anyone following current events in the region. Even if ISIS didn’t | Read More »
