Show Us Where Israel Touched You, Mr. President
I chuckled the other day on twitter when I saw Kevin Eder tweet, “Mr President, please show me on the doll where Israel touched you.” The President’s antagonism toward Israel, shared by many on the left, borders on the irrational. A nation surrounded by many larger nations all hell bent on its annihilation, Israel’s fight for existence is not like ours. In minutes, the nation | Read More »
Tech at Night: Tennessee leads the fight against socialized Internet
While the Net Neutrality power grab got all of the attention, just as important was the FCC strike against federalism the same week, that unilaterally attempts to override all state laws against socialized Internet in this country. Imagine the audacity, to do that without a an act of Congress or anything. Fortunately at least Tennessee is standing up to Barack Obama and his lap dog, | Read More »
Barack Obama Is A Very Successful President
As was the case when Scott Walker’s college credentials became a news story a few weeks ago, some have found their cause du jour with which to hit Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. For Cruz, it’s a question of experience. Does he have enough? What constitutes presidential experience is vague but from what I’ve seen, it is mostly conservative media that is | Read More »
March 23, 1775. Patrick Henry at the Second Virginia Convention.
Perhaps appropriate considering Senator Ted Cruz announced as a candidate for president today. When 39-year old delegate Patrick Henry rose on March 23, 1775, at the Second Virginia Convention to speak in favor of the proposition of organizing companies of volunteer infantry and cavalry in every Virginia county he was already known firebrand. Back in 1765, he had been on the forefront of advocating for American | Read More »
Section 8 housing vouchers pay for luxury apartments
If I wasn’t footing the bill for this nonsense it would be funny. But I am, so it isn’t. Verde Point is a self-described “luxury apartment” complex with a rooftop pool and “personal wine storage” that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes | Read More »
You know what? Segregation is a minority right
One of the great things about this highly paid gig as a RedState contributor, other than the private jet and unlimited hookers and bourbon, is being professionally obligated to keep an eye on what the left is up to. By following the left you are able to read “trans-women” (which, I believe though I’m ready to accept correction, is a man who is suffering from | Read More »
Louisiana gubernatorial candidate hates school choice
Coming up in Louisiana is the magical time of year where honest, ordinary citizens watch the skies grow dark and get a sense of dread the likes of which they do not feel at any other time of the year. I am, of course, talking about the legislature going into session. It’s going to be shaping up into a big one already with major fights | Read More »
Boys Using the Girls’ Bathroom
Boys are going to be able to use the girls’ bathroom in Georgia. Churches in Georgia will be denied building permits unless they build unisex bathrooms for the transgendered. I’m not exaggerating. The Texas legislature has had to swing into action to roll all that back in Texas. In Texas!! How did it happen in Texas? Well, Texas has a religious freedom law that has | Read More »
What happened to the “Last Mile”?
The term “Net Neutrality” was coined by Columbia Professor Tim Wu in 2003. Net Neutrality originally referred to management of the “last mile” of the network over which data flows into a person’s home, but the debate has grown beyond that in recent years. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided on February 26th to apply utility style regulations to the Internet by reclassifying it as | Read More »
The Hill: Yeah, the Democrats Empowering Boehner Now
After caving to the Obama administration as well as the Democrats in Congress and the media by bringing a “clean” DHS funding bill up for a vote, we here at RedState admitted the fact that Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% now essentially owes his job to the Democrats. Now, the Democrats themselves are willing to go on record as wanting to | Read More »

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 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% 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 | Read More »
The Fair and Relevant Question
With Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% 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 Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87%, who will announce in a few weeks. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, who I think is | Read More »
