John Conyers fails to make the Ballot in his Michigan District
With Dingell retiring at the end of this term after serving almost 59 years in Congress*, his fellow Michigan representative in the 13th District John Conyers is poised to become the longest serving member of the House. Actually, he would be poised to do so–if he can get on the ballot. Yes, a Congressman seeking his 26th term might see his career end in one | Read More »
Tech at Night: Will Google and the rest of the far left shoot down Net Neutrality 3.0?
I asked back in February of last year, which seems like forever ago, whether Google would end up remaining a left-wing outfit. As it turns out, they’re joining the Occupy radical left claiming the Obama administration’s new Net Neutrality plans don’t go far enough. These radicals are flipping out because they won’t be happy until we get single payer Internet. So whether the left shoots down Chairman Tom Wheeler’s vote on Net Neutrality 3.0 remains to be seen.
Will the Obama FCC dance to the tune set by the furthest left wing of the President’s party, in an election year where the electorate is going to be much further to the right than the one that re-elected the President?

Boko Haram, Mike Hammer and Barney The Dinosaur In Jurassic Park
There are a lot of reasons offered as to why Boko Haram is so mean and why the rioters in Benghazi were so violent and nasty. Let me simplify this for you a bit. They did it because as long as people like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry are allowed to make important decisions with regards to America’s Foreign Policy they can. People with no | Read More »
Obama, Libya and Boko Haram’s Whirlwind
To the dorm room Machiavelli’s of the Obama administration the Arab Spring (or the al Qaeda Spring, depending upon your point of view) was supposed to usher in a new era of power politics. Enthusiastic mobs of local Jeffersonian democrats, Hamiltonian federalists, and theoretical Burkeans would take to the streets, powered by texting and Twitter, to overthrow totalitarian regimes. Instead of using the means and | Read More »
Sorry Mainstream Media, Conservatives Will Have a Greater Say in ’16 Debates
We all remember the 2012 presidential primary debates, with the liberal media interrogating our candidates on issues that were often not a priority to most Americans. It was a sad situation, a traveling circus, and it was because the mainstream media was in control of every aspect of those debates. They all wanted a chance to go after our candidates, and some of them clearly | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss the intra-party battle in the GOP, the astonishing amount of money beating up their own and how this fight may impact 2016.

My Georgia Picks
People keep asking me to put all these in one place, so here it goes. Below are the candidates I have recommended in Georgia. I have not recommended people in every race. Statewide Governor: Nathan Deal U.S. Senate: Karen Handel School Superintendent: Nancy Jester (alternative: Ashley Bell) Congress US Congress, District 1: John McCallum US Congress, District 10: Jody Hice US Congress, District 11: Barry | Read More »
Mitt Romney: A Severe Conservative Who Just Won’t Go Away
When conservative candidates lose their bid for elected office, they tend to fade away from public life and are never heard from again. But for Rockefeller Republicans, losing an election is evidently a resume enhancer for them to continue advising and interfering with Republican politics and policy. Mitt Romney ran as a “severely” conservative Republican in the primary. He pulverized his opponents with an expensive | Read More »
If You Live in Texas, Vote for Ken Paxton for Attorney General
Remember last year, when many Republicans in the Texas Legislature decided to pass a bill–supported by President Obama and Congressional Democrats at the federal level–requiring outside groups to disclose their donors to engage in political speech? Thankfully Governor Perry vetoed the bill, which would have stifled the free speech of all sorts of conservative organizations. Fast forward to the current Texas Attorney General’s race, and | Read More »
Crucifixions, Porn and Other Sick Perversions At The USEPA.
People hold varying opinions on whether Global Warming is occurring. They differ on whether it is a cataclysmic occurrence if it happens. People hold radically different opinions on what should and what can be done about the issue if it were to become a problem. However, I’d argue that anyone not infected with a pseudo-religious zealotry would be concerned if they knew the extent to | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale, Deceptions, and Lack of Courage on the Campaign Trail
The Tea Party is dead. It’s so dead that even politicians who clearly do not share its ethos…co-opt the message and run with it on the campaign trail. In fact, no viable candidate can be caught running an ad that reflects anything counter to the message of the Tea Party in GOP primaries. The latest example is Sid Dinsdale who is running for the U.S. | Read More »
Apology from the RNC Director of Rapid Response
*The below apology from Jahan Wilcox, which was posted by Chairman Priebus, is appreciated by RedState, as is the severe reprimand that we were told was administered. Unfortunately, the willingness of some within the ranks of the party apparatus to demean, and sometimes even work against, conservative candidates has grown this primary cycle. While we are disappointed that this happened within the ranks of Reince’s | Read More »
House Leaders Pass Another Bill With Democrat Support
Evidently, the fact that Republicans “only” control the House necessitates that they pass bills with Democrats support. Once again, House leaders passed a bill through the House with only a majority of Democrat support. As we noted yesterday, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation is a corporate welfare bank to subsidize foreign investment. 106 Republicans voted for it while 116 voted against it. This is yet | Read More »
Obama: Benghazi Is A Phony Scandal
Last summer, Barack Obama, the selfie president, gave a speech in which he blamed his difficulties, in part, on phony scandals: Reversing this trend must be Washington’s highest priority. It’s certainly mine. But for most of this year, an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals have shifted focus from what we need to do to shore up the middle class. And as | Read More »
Urgent: Gosnell Movie Needs Your Help
I’m not going to go into depth about what Gosnell Movie is about. You can read about that here, but in short, it tells the story of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who prolifically murdered babies both inside the womb and out. He is currently serving a life sentence in prison. It is a story that needs to be told, because the pro-abortion media refused to | Read More »
