West Virginia House of Delegates #MailGate Spawns Complaint
We are now in the third month of the ongoing #MailGate saga, where at-risk Democrat members of the West Virginia House of Delegates used their franking privileges to target likely Democrat voters. One Delegate, however, really takes the cake.

2014 establishment Republicans just as poisonous as the 2010 version
When groups like the T.E.A. Party were on the rise leading up to the mid-term elections of 2010, Barry Goldwater Jr. recalled how similar they were to the conservative movement his father stood for. He was particularly impressed with how it reminded him “…of the conservative movement in 1960 and 1964,” and he concluded that they were “…people who are sick and tired of the | Read More »

Back Scratching Politics of Mississippi
Brett Favre, a man who did not know when to quit, has cut an ad for Senator Thad Cochran, a man who has has himself stayed in his job too long. The pattern does not end there. Jenn Sterger claimed Brett Favre sent her indecent pictures and Thad Cochran has admitted to doing, in his words, “all sorts of indecent things with animals.” But the | Read More »
Louisiana should dispense of Senator Indispensable
Indispensable (adj) 1: not subject to being set aside or neglected 2: absolutely necessary : essential I truly believe that Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has reached a level of self-centeredness that would make even the Narcissist-in-Chief sitting in the White House proud. As she was preparing last April for her 4th senate term in a state significantly more conservative and Republican then when she won | Read More »
Obama is now truly a 2nd term president
A recent Gallup poll now shows for the first time ever, a majority of Americans view Obama unfavorably as a person. His favorability has dipped below 50 before (like during the healthcare.gov website blowup), but never has his unfavorability drifted over 50%. His job approval also from Gallup is -13 points (specifically 41-54 positive). RealClearPolitics daily average has him at negative 11 point slide. Typically a 2nd | Read More »
Democrats did not give Brat the winning edge over Cantor
That’s been one of the favorite memes of the Republican Establishment over the last couple of days. One of the big problems with an open primary system like Virginia has is that, since party registration is not required to vote for a particular party’s candidates, anyone can vote. Thus, the idea that Democrats in an Operation Chaos-type maneuver decided to vote for Dave Brat over | Read More »
Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Two
In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it | Read More »

It’s All About Barack Obama
Recent events really do raise a question over whether or not Barack Obama truly gives a damn about the Democratic Party. Key issues that could save his colleagues in the House and Senate are either ignored, delayed, or downright rejected. And he offers no apology to those who will be negatively affected in their reelection bids. Take the Keystone XL Pipeline or the EPA’s latest | Read More »
Boehner’s hump is on the Right only in public
This is a VERY funny Conservative web comic, drawn by Chris Muir, I highly recommend. I felt especially compelled to share this one with you all as I chuckled out loud on the last panel. Fair warning, it will take you a short while to catch up on who all the characters are but it’s worth it, and they have an excellent Facebook community too, | Read More »
Will Democrats have an Iraq moment with Obamacare?
As Obamacare continues dodding around and falling apart, I have to ask this question: When will Democrats (particularly those in red states) openly admit it was a huge mistake? Will Dems have an Iraq moment? Obviously not with far-left Dems, but will red state Dems ever admit mistake? You can only go so far before the consequences become face apparent and it denying it will only | Read More »
The importance of partisanship
I’ve always been fascinated by people who claim to detest politics – an extremely common proclamation at dinner-table conversations – but nevertheless support Big Government in all of its activist bloat. A related bafflement involves people who complain endlessly about bitter partisan politics and “gridlock” when the government consumes or controls so much of American life. If you want a huge, dominant central government, then | Read More »
Ventura County Democrat Party stalking local GOP House candidate? And lying about it? Hmmm…
Democrat lying isn’t exactly news lately, but all politics are local, as are Democrat lies these days

Obama Abandons WV Democrats with New EPA Emissions Rules
If West Virginia’s Democrat leadership expected President Barack Obama to take a break from anti-coal actions during the 2014 election season, they must be sorely disappointed.

Sen Wicker (MS) & County Republican Leader Appeal for Democrat Votes in Senate Primary?
In an appeal via email to the party faithful of rural Tippah County, Jerry Windham, Ex-Officio writes that: “the Tea Party, and I suspect the Democratic party, is trying to unseat Senator Thad Cochran because he will be the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, should the Republican Party prevail as projected. That means that he will hold the purse strings of the United States Government. I suggest | Read More »
Tech at Night: FCC is still a problem. GOP vs UN-run Internet. Snowden complains ironically.
I know, I’m late again. Turns out after being sick my body’s just been exhausted recovering. We’ll be better off next week.
Ajit Pai came to RedState on Friday to tell us about the Zapple Doctrine was being used by the FCC to stifle freedom of speech, specifically to try to hinder Scott Walker. The Zapple Doctrine is now dead, but we need to check the FCC to keep it from returning.
Broadcasters also want to check the FCC but they’re going to the courts, the same way ISPs had to over Net Neutrality.
And House Republicans are hard at work to shut Net Neutrality down again, after the courts already had to slap it down twice before.
