Politico Butt Hurt Over Rick Perry, Securing the Border, and “Abortion Barbie”
The former Chief Washington correspondent used to work for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. He left Politico, went to work for Wasserman-Schult, then returned to be “chief” Washington correspondent. (He’s gone again now) Multiple other Politico reporters have been involved in liberal causes. But the newspaper pretends to be objective. Occasionally though, it lets its guard down and we get to see its routine liberal outrage and | Read More »
Thank God for Rick Perry
[Editor's Note: Rick Perry will be at the RedState Gathering. You can come thank him for showing leadership that Washington refuses to show. Register at www.redstategathering.com] As the rest of the world sizes Barack Obama up as a man who pees sitting down, the Texas Governor, not prone to wear mom jeans, has ordered his National Guard down to the border. It seems a rather | Read More »
The ongoing debacle at the border — the Administration knew it was coming for two years
No less than the mainstay of the liberal media, The Washington Post, in this morning’s edition delivered a blistering article, “Obama’s aides were warned of brewing border crisis” about the ongoing debacle at the border. There’s no reading between the lines in this article, because the incompetence of this Administration and the placing of politics and political goals ahead of the lives of children can’t | Read More »
Rand Paul’s dangerously wrong and dangerous foreign policy
There is a spat going on between Texas Governor Rick Perry and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. The latest round has been set off by Governor Perry’s op-ed in the Washington Post headlined Isolationist policies make the threat of terrorism even greater: As a veteran, and as a governor who has supported Texas National Guard deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I can understand the emotions behind | Read More »
Voices in the Wilderness
As we arrive fully in the world Gertrude Himmelfarb warned us of — a world where our sexual orientation is chosen for us, but we can choose our own gender — there are fewer and fewer voices willing to be heard in the wilderness of secular insanity that envelopes us. I already know the sh-tstorm this post will cause online. The gay mafia keeps my | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Online Gambling Debate
So, online gambling. Right now there are two major pushes going on to get new legislation related to online gambling. Neither is a small government position, and I oppose them both. The current law as it stands isn’t bad. It could be better, but either plan out there right now would make things worse.
To summarize, the two plans out there are both masquerading as right-wing positions, however one turns out to be a classic big government picking of winners and losers, and the other is big regulatory government masquerading as libertarianism. We must pass neither.

Who are your Top 5 for 2016 GOP presidential nomination? (OPEN THREAD)
Greetings all, This is the third run of this monthly non-scientific ‘straw poll’ and I’ve removed a few names and added a couple since the last go-around. February’s top three were Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and Governor Scott Walker. The senators have kept themselves busy in the national medial limelight while Gov. Walker let his executive results speak for themselves. Same rules as | Read More »

Legalizing Drugs Now a GOP Issue?
Libertarians, Tea Party, Young Republicans: Legalize Drugs? Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” – George Washington So evidently the young, hip, Libertarian and Tea Party Republicans favor the legalization of drugs. And it’s not just the Ron Paul folks. In the culture war that is ongoing in America, conservatives tend to focus on issues of life and traditional marriage – integral building | Read More »
Tech at Night: Bitcoin to get taxed like gold. A mild satellite bill passes subcommittee. Jimmy Wales adds his POV to Wikipedia.
Gotta love how Rand Paul grandstands, accomplishes nothing, but then claims credit for everything.
How you can tell when it’s time for the Congress just to sit down and do nothing. When Democrats and Republicans are making uncharacteristic arguments. Isn’t it strange that Rick Perry, who famously put out a book in praise of federalism, is against federalism on gambling? I’m just going to assume there’s some fluky thing at work here and ignore this aberration from him.

@GovernorPerry: @BarackObama attempting to bully governors.
This was from a RGA panel(?), back in February: “When you have governors, and we all compete against each other — we are the laboratories of innovation — and for the President of the United States to look Democrat and Republican governors in the eye and say, ‘I do not trust you to make decisions in your state about issues of education, about transportation infrastructure,’ | Read More »
Thinking Outside the Obamacare Box
Every day we see the headlines and horror stories. Millions of health insurance policies canceled, with an exponential number more facing the ax next year. And besides the broken promises, we have a broken website that makes it nearly impossible for the long suffering uninsured, and the newly uninsured, to sign up. On top of what appears to be a combination of poor planning, | Read More »
