Democrat Senator Baucus: More to come on IRS-gate
One would think that when a Democratic Senator speaks out about IRS-gate, he’d be covering his own tail. Max Baucus, however, has a newfound reputation for calling a spade a spade, so when he says there’s more and possibly worse revelations about the IRS coming, I tend to sit up and listen. Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Times: Senior Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who | Read More »

…and, a lot of people are going to be disappointed… they’re not Arabs, though they’re likely Muslim, and likely not radical conservatives either.

Text Of Toomey-Manchin Gun Control Amendment Released
Well, I’ve finally found the text of the contentious Toomey-Manchin (or is it Manchin-Toomey?) Amendment. And, courtesy of the Library of Congress, here it is. Unfortunately, I am not a lawyer and may not have time today to reference this amendment with the bill (S. 649) as a whole, but I am hoping someone else out there is and can. As of this writing, there’s | Read More »

We Need Knife Control Now!
Checking the Fox News app on my Kindle, I see this shocking story of over a dozen people injured in an attack at a Texas college. Taking a page from the book of our New Leftist Overlords, I hereby issue the following demands so that our college students can be safe: Mandatory background checks before a knife can be purchased. Mandatory seven-day waiting period before | Read More »
RIP Margaret Thatcher; Even Some Leftists Praising Her.

According to his office, the senator’s final word was “Aloha.” Inouye was hospitalized | Read More »
An Open Letter To Liberals
This morning on Ricochet.com, member “~Paules” posted “An Open Letter To Liberals.” (Currently behind the Ricochet paywall.) With his kind permission, I am reposting it here. The statements are his, but I agree with 99.999% of it. Congratulations! You have voted your man another four years in the White House. If you want to poke your chest and crow “we won,” it won’t bother me | Read More »
Who Do The Democrats Run In 2016?
This is a serious question. Throw out the conspiracy theories about Obama somehow overturning the 22nd Amendment and running again himself. Biden is a national embarrassment, and even the Democrats know it, so the only way they’re going to run him at the top of the ticket is if they’re actively suicidal. So, does Hillary go again? Does Michael Nanny-State Bloomberg jump party lines (again | Read More »
Journalism for Bloggers 101
Really didn’t want my first RedState post to be a bleg, but I’ve got an opportunity that I think people might want to take advantage of. My friend and mentor, Patrick Richardson (of PJMedia and Daily Caller) has an idea to do an online course on journalism for bloggers. Personally, I think it’s a heck of a good idea (I’ll definitely be in the first | Read More »
