Banks Poised to Join New Generation of Congressional Conservatives
Washington insiders are more than a little peeved at Congressional conservatives who have rejected the status quo and pushed House and Senate Republicans to govern according to their campaign promises. One man who wants to continue that shakeup is Jim Banks, an Indiana state senator and Afghan War veteran with an impressive resume and record of conservative accomplishment. Running in Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District to | Read More »
Only the Left could say we have too many choices
For all his faults, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% has his moments. This moment comes in the form of a final shot at the White House, which is very much against his plan to increase school choice options: WASHINGTON — In what can be viewed as a late homage to departing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, the | Read More »
What could we do with all that Planned Parenthood money?
What if we stripped away all funding for Planned Parenthood? What if we took that money, kept it tied to women’s health care, and distributed it in a different way? What if we took that money and created a subsidy that women could apply for that covered preventative health screenings as well as doctor and hospital visits during pregnancy and delivery? What if another chunk | Read More »
Democrats would rather Defund Food Stamps than Planned Parenthood
The desperate attempts by Democrats to ignore or explain away the Planned Parenthood videos have provided us with plenty of excellent examples showcasing just how dedicated the Left is to abortion. However, the latest rhetoric from the Obama administration might top everything else in recent memory to show how extreme their attachment is. From the Huffington Post (I’m reading it so you don’t have to), we see | Read More »

Pope’s Challenge to Protect Life Instantly Dismissed
The Pope was in town today, if you didn’t know, but the drooling dropped jaws of the Left probably tipped you off. As the country has been preparing for the papal visit, we’ve been subjected to channels such as CNN essentially turning into EWTN. Suddenly the Pope is revered, and Catholic teaching, most of it anyway, should be seriously considered, albeit briefly. The Pope’s speech | Read More »
Fewer Women in Government Than Men? So What?
The poor women of these United States. We are so under-represented in American politics. It certainly must mean that discrimination is to blame as we survey elected office, and find that there are fewer women than men. Certainly nothing can account for that lopsided nature, other than the evil Patriarchy, right? This is all nonsense, of course, but it seems each new election cycle the | Read More »
Nine Stunning Admissions from Planned Parenthood’s “Nothing to See Here” Letter to Congress
Planned Parenthood is on the ropes, reeling from months of being exposed for its sickeningly evil practice of selling the bodies of murdered babies for parts.
In an attempt to deflect attention from its atrocities, it has sent the several congressional committees that have opened up federal investigations into Planned Parenthood’s practices a “nothing to see here” letter.
Yet, even in its multiple deceptions and distortions, Planned Parenthood makes a number of stunning admissions about its abortion and baby harvesting practices.

Democrats Attack Hyde Amendment Once Again
As if the expansive abortion rights available in this country weren’t enough, the loud and unoppressed women on the Left are asking for more. In the 40+ years since the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Roe v. Wade, unfettered access to abortion has cost countless lives at the altar of choice. According to the Guttmacher Institute, and reported on Life News: A new analysis indicates the | Read More »
Does Your Representative Support Ripping Babies’ Limbs Apart in Painful Abortions?
An unborn child is ripped limb from limb – their skull is crushed – as the baby is painfully and gruesomely murdered inside his or her mother’s womb.
184 Members of Congress voted in favor of this heinous act. They voted to give the most abominable form of excruciating death the color of law. They voted for death. You need to know who they are.

Labor Department Preparing Blacklist Rule for Government Contracts
As their previous actions have shown, the Obama administration has proven it has no idea what a functional economic policy looks like. Obamacare is the biggest example of this, but the Department of Labor has just given us another. They are creating what amounts to a blacklist rule to help determine which private businesses are awarded government contracts. Using a 2014 executive order, here’s what | Read More »
Congress is Investigating Asylum Seekers with Terror Ties
Last year, I discussed how the United States should be among the countries offering asylum to Iraqi Christians. The same can also be said about Christians in all territories currently under the Islamic State’s control. However, our offer of asylum should not come without attempting to weed out those who could be threats to America. Unfortunately, some with ties to terrorist groups have managed to | Read More »
Around 6,400 Lois Lerner E-Mails Found
Anyone sufficiently skilled with computers knows that it’s extremely hard to make your data truly disappear without a trace, even when your hard drive crashes. Lois Lerner’s probably thinking about that right now. Earlier today news surfaced that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, the official IRS watchdog, found about 6,400 of Lois Lerner’s supposedly lost e-mails during its investigation. Even though these e-mails | Read More »
Congress Should Reschedule Japanese PM Shinzo Abe’s Address
During and prior to World War II, both Germany and Japan committed numerous atrocities, of which the Holocaust and the Japanese “comfort women” might merely be the most well known. After their respective surrenders, Germany was forced to take responsibility for its horrible acts, but Japan was not. To this day, most Japanese leaders are reluctant, at best, to even acknowledge that they might have | 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 »
