History’s Greatest Event
This coming week starts the anniversary celebrations of the greatest event in history. Two thousand years ago, in a rather routine and inconsequential act for that time, Roman authorities nailed a man to a cross. What happened next is subject to dispute. But since then, most of the western world has believed that three days after his execution, the man named Jesus came back to | Read More »
Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D, Hawaii-1) is distancing herself from #obamacare. Quietly.
Colleen Hanabusa is in extremely rare territory for a Democrat: she doesn’t have to defend Obamacare.

Kathleen Sebelius Resigns
The White House has announced that Kathleen Sebelius, architect of and maestro behind the flawless Obamacare rollout, has chosen to resign as HHS secretary and find another organization, in hopefully another country, to ruin. From the New York Times Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, | Read More »
After Volkswagen Loss, UAW Bosses Turn To Bovine Excrement Manufacturing
Ever since the majority of Volkswagen’s employees in Chattanooga rejected the United Auto Workers in February, Detroit-based UAW bosses have appeared more than a little desperate in their claims that the their loss was due to “outside influences.” Now, they seem more interested in having a “show trial” for the media than focusing on the real reasons for their loss. This is aside from the | Read More »
BREAKING: White House Admits Democrats Will Lose the Senate
Put another way, Kathleen Sebelius has resigned and “Senior Administration Officials” are telling the media it is because of healthcare.gov. You do not have a celebration event last week to celebrate 7 million sign ups and have Sebelius there to get credit then this week throw her under the bus because of a screw up that happened last October. They have been standing with her | Read More »
Foxhole Conversions vs. Real Commitments
Politicians are no different than any other salesman trying to market a product or service. When they are challenged by competition and when voters are presented with choices, they begin to improve their representation. The latest example of election-year foxhole conversions took place today during the votes on competing budget proposals for FY 2015. As we noted last week, the problem with the Ryan budget | Read More »
New York ‘s Abortion Business Operates Without Regulation
In 2012 over 130,000 abortions were carried out in the 225 abortion facilities that operate in New York. These facilities are subject to inspection. When the pro-life Chiaroscuro Foundation asked the NY State Health Department for information on those inspections, information which is supposed to be public record, they were stonewalled. The Foundation sued under the state freedom of informations act and the results were | Read More »
Lois Lerner Held In Contempt Of Congress
The White House point creature in the coordinated attempt to suppress Tea Party and conservative organizations, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, has been held in contempt of Congress: A House committee voted Thursday to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, as Republicans escalated their bid to “get to the bottom” of the former IRS official’s role in the political targeting scandal. | Read More »
Eric Holder’s Hissy Fits
The irony was just too much. Last night Attorney General — and unindicted co-conspirator in the death of a US Border Patrol agent and a few hundred Mexican civilians — Eric Holder addressed a meeting of the ongoing RICO conspiracy founded by the “Reverend” Al Shaprton, the National Action Network. That Eric Holder would address a group devoted to racial grievance mongering is unremarkable. Eric | Read More »
So, About Those Obamacare Enrollment Numbers
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss what the real Obamacare enrollment numbers may be, if there are enough young people to make the program work and if more employers will dump employs into the exchange.

IRS and Congressional Democrats Worked Together Against Conservatives
Katie Pavlich did the reporting on this over at Townhall. It is quite an impressive scoop. New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt | Read More »
Tech at Night: A message to Mike Lee about Comcast.
Mike Lee, we’re your friends here at RedState. We backed you in the primary, and we’re sure to back you going forward. But please, lay off on his Comcast/Time Warner deal. The arguments you’re making, at least as portrayed by The Hill, are the same arguments that were used falsely to fool conservatives into backing the Net Neutrality power grab. Now they’re being used to trick us into backing an antitrust power grab.
First off, even if Net Neutrality wasn’t fixing an imaginary threat, the kind of discrimination you’re talking about is already banned by consent decree from the Comcast – NBC Universal deal. So your fears are doubly unfounded. But don’t take my word for it. Let the market work. Markets are how all of us speak, and we know better than government.

Watch How The Left-Wing Smear Machine Does Dick Durbin’s Dirty Work
Watch how Dick Durbin launches a coordinated assault on a Republican with an egregious misquote that takes off after it gets laundered through the left-wing media. Yesterday afternoon, Sahil Kapur of TalkingPointsMemo wrote a piece quoting remarks from Mitch McConnell: “Instead of focusing on jobs, [Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid] launched into another confusing attack on the left’s latest bizarre obsession,” the Republican leader said | Read More »
Timeline of Targeting: The Evidence Mounts Against the IRS’s Lois Lerner
Today, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to recommend criminal charges against Lois Lerner. The Committee’s letter to the Justice Department documents in detail the nefarious character of Lois Lerner’s actions.
But maybe most shocking is the revelation that when she learned of the application of President Obama’s own campaign-committee-turned-advocacy-group, Organizing for America (OFA), she remarked, “Oh—maybe I can get the DC office job!”
