Battleground Israel Turns Out Like Battleground Texas
Team Obama poured amazing resources into Battleground Texas to help Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, win and to turn Texas blue. Arguably, the Obama team had so many resources directed at Texas that they weakened themselves elsewhere. But they had a tremendous media operation and their acolytes in the press wrote hagiographic story after hagiographic story on how awesome Battleground Texas was. The media even lumped | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s Internet regulation plan got everything wrong. Everything.
The Heritage Foundation is one of the most important components of the conservative movement. They’re a true Think Tank, bringing together many smart people to speak intelligently on many issues. And I agree with Jim DeMint’s predecessor at Heritage, Ed Fuelner, when he says Net Neutrality “needs to be eradicated, not embraced.
Do Not Descend Into That
One of the bits of guilt I carry around over running RedState is that I am often given credit for the great work of others. Leon Wolf, not me, wrote this tremendous piece on the Ferguson Police Department. Though I did not write it, I agree with it and hope you will read it. In the process of some giving me credit, however, some too | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet was worse than we thought
So Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, the one that we weren’t allowed to see what was in it until it was passed, is finally out, and it’s anti-free speech, anti-innovation, and illegal. It was sold as one thing, but there’s a whole iceberg of problems beneath.
This POLITICO story has everything
(Trigger Warning: POLITICO) You guys might have heard about this silly e-mail thing that involves Hillary Clinton. If you haven’t, here’s the recap, courtesy Ace of Spades’ John Ekdahl. Suffice it to say, what is written in this TIME article is certainly enough to perhaps inspire someone to go after Mrs. Clinton for deleting half of her e-mails without ever opening them (emphasis below is | Read More »
Democrats: we were wrong about that whole dissent being patriotic thing
Forty-seven United States Senators did what desperately needed to be done. They sent a letter to the hardline Islamic radicals who run Iran — and let’s not fool ourselves, the only difference between Iranian hardliners and Iranian moderates involves beard length — informing them that the deal they are about to cut with Obama is simply not going to be approved by the Senate. The | Read More »
Tech at Night: Netflix got used and betrayed over Net Neutrality
Before the FCC’s vote on Barack Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, Netflix was the golden boy of the Net Neutrality movement. They were constantly cited as the reason we needed regulation, and Netflix played it up, hoping winners and losers would be chosen. Well now it turns out, even Netflix opposes Obama’s plan.
Treading carefully to avoid our profanity rules here at RedState, Democrats are all upset over 47 Republican members of the Senate sending Iran a letter indicating any deal with the President is dead on arrival in the Senate. There will be no Iranian treaty. Democrats are now claiming sedition, treason, and other outrages. They are hysterically screaming that politics is supposed to stop at the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Regulation broke encryption, and now it may break streaming
We got news of a new, widespread Internet security hole this week, and it turns out this one was caused by government. They caused it. Government is bad at controlling the Internet, and so now it turns out the Net Neutrality plan of Barack Obama’s to regulate the Internet may cause even more problems. Net Neutrality will break streaming.
FREAK regulation leaves us less secure
The liberals, anarchists, and socialists are all telling us how Obama’s new Internet regulation plan is such a great idea. They say we need to trust government bureaucrats to keep us better off, making the Internet more like the DMV, instead of managed by corporations which are evil because they invest, compete, and create incentives were better, faster Internet for us, makes more money for | Read More »
Texas Files Early Discovery Motion Against Obama
The Texas Attorney General is attuned to the news cycle as the rest of us. This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February. A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued | Read More »
