    Breast Milk and the TSA

    Now we have yet another TSA outrage. Something tells me the media would be much more worked up by this if George Bush were still President. Oddly enough, in an era when the press is falling all over itself to highlight bipartisanship, here is an issue uniting the left and right.In this edition of TSA Outrage, we have a mother who didn’t want her breast | Read More »

    The Message Still Sucks, I Guess

    On the night of November 2, 2010, and thereafter, the Democrats kept saying they lost not because of their policies, but because of their message.They said they just got the message wrong and didn’t explain how they were creating vast amounts of jobs.Never mind that they weren’t. The unemployment number speaks for itself.So the Democrats got the message wrong.Right now in Congress, the Democrats are | Read More »


    Metrics of Success

    I sent out a fundraising pitch the other day to the RedState email list on behalf of American Majority. It was my pleasure to do so and I want to share it here with you. American Majority has real metrics of success this past year and I am quite proud of them.With campaign season over, it is time to get ready for the next steps | Read More »

    On This Nancy Pelosi Has My Thanks. God Bless Her.

    None of us here are fans of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But I believe in praising people, whether I agree with them or not, when they deserve it. And Nancy Pelosi deserves our praise today. You may not know it, but Pelosi is an ardent foe of the Chicoms’ human rights record. As documented in the wikileaks releases, the Chinese are scared to death of the | Read More »

    Why Governors Matter: Nikki Haley Takes on Barack Obama

    Nikki Haley is just so awesome.At a White House gathering for the new governors, Governor-Elect Haley confronted Mr. Obama and asked him to repeal Obamacare. Obama refused so Haley said she wanted an opt-out for South Carolina.She made sure the White House knew she was going to fight every step of the way on this.What is more awesome is that she demanded a refund to | Read More »

    Who Made Them God?

    “If this plan passes we’ll be back at this in ten years …. The leviathan’s hunger cannot be contained unless we have the will to gut it.” To listen to the news coverage today, Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles have become deities. No doubt Barack Obama will be jealous. The coverage of this Deficit Commission plan is ludicrous. The reporters breathlessly reporting on it are | Read More »

    Senate GOP Sells Out National Security for Tax Cuts

    Let’s be honest, there are many sexy issues in politics these day. The START Treaty is not one of them.No one other than Barack Obama and the Kremlin care about START.But we should. We should also care that the Senate GOP, thanks to the “skillful” negotiations of Jon Kyl (R-AZ), have decided to sell us down the river to Moscow in order to temporarily avoid | Read More »

    Just Say No to Louie Gohmert’s Write-In Bid

    The Republican Study Committee is the group in the House of Representatives that makes up the real conservatives among the Republicans. The body frequently pushes back on squishy Republican ideas and, over the years, has come up with some pretty bold and unapologetically conservative policy ideas. (One side note — it needs to stop letting in every person with an “R” next to their name, | Read More »

    The TSA Lies In Response to RedState

    I’d like to be charitable, but more than a week after we highlighted an outrageous TSA action, the TSA finally decided to respond. It did so by flat out lying.The TSA’s response is to this post about my friend the soldier who experienced one of the most egregious bits of bureaucratic stupidity at the hands of the TSA to ever be documented.How does the TSA | Read More »
