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 »
I normally avoid doing Democrats any favors if I can help it. Unforced errors do not help the good guys consistantly win. However, I am moved to make an exception for tommorrow’s Alabama State Democratic Party. For the good of my home state and The United States of America, I am switching sides and endorsing Mr. Kevin Bass for The Gubernatorial Nomination of The Alabama | Read More »

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.

The Democrats have been signalling for a while now that they really have no intention to truly fight, as a party, against the Republicans. Going into the political season, they had two strategies they could have chosen from, and they chose to play it safe. Generally, we all get the idea of “divide and conquer,” and there is room for both governing parties to do | Read More »
A group of New York State lawmakers are upset that Remington Manufacturing is moving two weaponry assembly lines to Huntsville, AL. The Bushmaster and R1 handguns will now be manufactured in Huntsville rather than in Ilion, NY. They are upset at the State of New York for creating a climate that discourages firearms manufacturers from producing there. The political climate regarding 2nd Amendment issues did | Read More »
Setting his sights on Republicans who reject climate change, an environmentalist billionaire is unveiling plans to spend $100 million this year in seven competitive Senate and gubernatorial races, as his super PAC works to counteract a flood of conserv…
America’s growing ethnic diversity — and particularly the increasing number of Latinos — is widely thought to advantage Democrats. For this reason, many argue that Republicans need to get behind immigration reform (and I don’t disagree). But could Democrats also face challenges in securing the loyalties of Latinos, and especially young Latinos? Two new pieces […]
The latest bad-news poll for Democrats is a Politico poll of battleground states that shows Republicans leading by a historically wide margin on the generic ballot: In the congressional districts and states where the 2014 elections will actually be decided, likely voters said they would prefer to vote for a Republican over a Democrat by 7 points, 41 percent to 34 percent. A quarter of | Read More »
So even as Democrats try to distract from critical oversight issues by making angry noises about AT&T and DirecTV, Republicans aren’t taking the bait and instead are applying proper oversight to the FCC. Because you see, while the radicals make false anti-“fast lane” arguments for their Title II Reclassification alternative, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Zombie Net Neutrality is still a power grab. It’s a power grab that the Democrat-run press is colluding to allow, buddy-buddy with pro-Net Neutrality corporate lobbyists such as Google’s.

Has Obamacare been outspent on the airwaves? Only if you don’t count the biggest source of Obamacare ads. The last diehard supporters of Obamacare have a new excuse for its pervasive and persistent unpopularity: that there are just too many negative ads out there convincing Americans that Obamacare is a bad idea. But this argument is based on obviously misleading statistics. President Obama’s April 1 | Read More »
