It’s up to you to stop ObamaCare
At the RedState Gathering in New Orleans on Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz called for a grassroots effort to persuade Republicans to eliminate funding for President Obama’s health care law. Or as he put it, the “biggest and the most important battle 113th Congress is going to face” — the battle to defund ObamaCare. Senator Cruz told the gathering of Conservative activists that the best way | Read More »
Would GOP cave over any veto threat by Obama-man on a ledge?
Upon what basis does responsible governance require fully funding a program that the President himself has partially suspended? The most persuasive case for not passing a budget that fully funds Obamacare is the rule of law/responsible governance argument that would demand that bills that become laws be fully funded until a future bill becomes law that repeals the former. But, the GOP leadership doesn’t make | Read More »
Tech at Night: Manning guilty. Snowden lying. Microsoft accuses itself of copyright infringement.
This will be my last post before heading off to the gathering, enjoy!
Previously on RedState: Google as ISP lets us know they oppose Net Neutrality.
So Bradley Manning was convicted on nearly every charge. Let’s hope he gets a serious sentence to go with it.
More Wikileaks: The latest Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald report was misleading, so says the House.

Google as ISP lets us know they oppose Net Neutrality
Previously in Tech at Night we heard that Google had been accused of violating the FCC’s Open Internet order, also known as Net Neutrality. The stated purpose of Net Neutrality is to prevent ISPs from discriminating between one kind of Internet traffic, and another, in order to bolster its own services.
Google as web services provider was a strong proponent of the new regulations. However in Google’s response to the Net Neutrality complaint, Google has come out in favor of discrimination, asserting that because discrimination against “server” traffic is an industry standard, Google is within its rights to continue that discrimination in the Net Neutrality era. Google, in defending its own Net Neutrality violation, is citing the pre-Net Neutrality industry standards it repeatedly claimed were dangerous and harmful to Americans.
Of course, they’re claiming that they’re within the law, but it’s clear they are not.

Boehner Rule could accommodate Lee’s de-funding Obamacare
If the Speaker of the House is serious about his insistence that any bill raising the debt ceiling must include spending cuts equal to the amount of new debt the federal government is allowed to incur, then GOP establishment hues and cries against the supposed recklessness of Sen. Mike Lee’s insistence that the next budget fund all government programs except for Obamacare should also be | Read More »
Real reason Boehner fears shutdown showdown with Obama
Barack Hussein Obama is the first president in our history who would not only allow the United States to actually default on interest payments to bond holders of the national debt, but would actually welcome it. That is the dirty little secret that no one seems willing to utter in public, but that is the only logical explanation that so few elected Republicans in Washington, | Read More »

From your Facebook passwords to Section 8 housing… why Barack Obama should be impeached for dismantling the very Constitution he swore to preserve, protect and defend.
We all know that Barack Obama was a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago. He spent more than a decade lecturing on what is possibly the greatest document ever written by men. Later, when elected to the Senate and then the White House he swore to defend that same Constitution. Despite all of that, one has to wonder, does Barack Obama not actually | Read More »

Obama’s Economics – Equality At The Zero
President Barack Obama was talking economy again the 24th of July. This is typically the topic he comes back to after every other topic he could discuss seems to be one about which he should zip his soup cooler. The bromides flew like Japanese Beetles during an infestation. He seems to have noticed the high level of inequality between the average American and the typical student at the Punahou Academy. He dusts off his old copy of Resnick and Wolff below.

“This growing inequality isn’t just morally wrong; it’s bad economics,” he told his Galesburg, Illinois audience. “When middle-class families have less to spend, businesses have fewer customers. When wealth concentrates at the very top, it can inflate unstable bubbles that threaten the economy. When the rungs on the ladder of opportunity grow farther apart, it undermines the very essence of this country.”
Low tide for the ocean of tomorrows
Barack Obama’s latest “pivot to the economy” speech will soon fade from memory, just like everything else he says, except for the words he really needs us to forget, such as “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” But before all the gassy rhetoric and silly claims of a roaring economy only he can see have been lost | Read More »
Actually, Barack Obama was unlikely to be sensible about #Obamacare. Ever.
This is an interesting and amusing alternate history by National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar: …it’s useful to consider an alternate history of what could have happened if Obama pursued an economy-focused agenda after passing a stimulus in February 2009. Instead of taking up health care reform in the wake of the Great Recession, the president could have spent his time addressing Americans’ economic insecurity by promoting | Read More »
Reign of the man-child
There’s a common thread running through Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting escapades, Barack Obama’s 19th pivot to the economy, and much else that’s going wrong in America today. This is the reign of the man-child, the era of perpetual teenage indulgence. Nothing is my fault, man. Nobody understands me. Everyone keeps hassling me about little stuff. Nobody can see the superhero I really am. Consequences are | Read More »
After Texas: Live Action Continues To Fight For The Unborn
On July 18, Gov. Perry signed the bipartisan HB 2 into law, which bans abortions 20-weeks into a pregnancy. It’s another victory for the pro-life movement, and their struggle to build a culture of life in this country. In Colorado, North Carolina, and Ohio – pro-life legislation is being passed. Undoubtedly, pro-abortion activists are on the defensive, but the fight isn’t over. Live Action’s President, | Read More »

Detroit, Europe and Krugman-defined optional austerity
Decreases in annual increases of big government budgets do not “austerity” measures make and are not the reason that the, rightly-named-by-Nobel-Prize-winning-economist Paul Krugman, economic Depression continues in most of Europe and the United States. President Richard Nixon actually didn’t say that “We are all Keynesians now” after taking the United States off the gold standard in 1971 and otherwise ensuring that Hubert Humphrey-Democrats got the | Read More »

Even Democrats are giving up on ObamaCare
Scott Clement, a survey research analyst with Capital Insight — the independent polling group of Washington Post Media, reports that a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that even Democrats, at least those who are Moderate or Conservative have turned against ObamaCare. According to Clement, only 46 percent of Moderate or Conservative Democrats now support ObamaCare. That’s down 11 percent in the past year and | Read More »
ACLU reverses course on further #Zimmerman prosecution: will @BarackObama… AGAIN?
Jeralyn Merritt of Talk Left has always had a stubbornly sensible streak about her when it comes to the absurdities of her side’s legal-themed shenanigans, and sometimes it gets loose. Case in point: her addressing of basic reality on the Martin-Zimmerman case, and exactly why the ACLU was smart to reverse course and get out of any further race-baiting in the form of trying for | Read More »
