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 »
YOU MUST GIVE MONEY NOW!!
Zach Dasher is my guy in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District. He should be your guy too. He’s running against the congressman who had the affair and has decided not to resign. Zach is awesome. He has an awesome commercial. But he needs money to keep it on the air. Watch it here, then pour forth all the money you can into his campaign coffers that | Read More »
The Mark of the Udall Curse now damaging all other Udall candidacies THROUGHOUT SPACE AND TIME.
…OK, maybe that’s me being silly. But ‘s (D, NM) most recent Albuquerque Journal poll is the worst we’ve seen yet for him. Admittedly, 50-43 over Allen Weh is still a very good place for Udall to be, a week out – but keep an eye on this one, maybe. ‘s campaign taints all Democratic things that it touches with its mediocrity: it’s entirely possible that | Read More »
Hey, white person, please send money
I don’t know how many of you have received the unending barrage of shrill, implausible, and marginally literate of fund raising emails from the Democrats this year but they have been a source of amusement to a lot of us. A couple of days ago one said that by raising $24K and some change (which would be triple matched, presumably by rich plutocrats) Democrats WILL | Read More »
Why @BuzzFeed isn’t trusted by anyone explained in one post
Last week Pew Research released a study titled Political Polarization and Media Habits that evaluated various media outlets by how trustworthy they were presumed to be based on the respondent’s self-identified political beliefs. Some of it is hardly surprising: Down the list, the left is far more credulous about what they read or watch on television than any other group. This is hardly a surprise when | Read More »

#GOTV: Unions Working Overtime To Get The Vote Out For Democrats
With the mid-term elections a week away, Democrats are relying on union bosses to get boots on the ground to minimize their expected losses and, perhaps, push a few high-profile Republicans–including six governors–out of office. Although unions spend an estimated $500 million to $1 billion every election cycle and traditionally have thousands of union members working to turn out the vote for Democrats, more emphasis | Read More »
