#PPSellsBabyParts: Why Is Selling Human Organs Illegal Anyway?
If I kill an endangered lion in Africa and bring its head and skin home to be stuffed, I will be fined anywhere between $500 and $10,500, depending on how many times I’m caught doing it—not to mention calls for my soul to be fed to Cthulhu after my body is slow roasted on a spit. But if I sell my own plasma or sperm, | Read More »
Cecil the Lion is Dead. So Are Millions of Unborn Babies
I’m amazed by how often society fixates on shiny objects and completely ignores things that matter. This week, the shiny object was Cecil the Lion. I’m sure Planned Parenthood is very happy about Cecil. Instead of talking about the little shop of horrors PP has been running for years, the media is talking about the evils of lion hunting. Instead of investigating what laws Planned | Read More »
So Why Aren’t You Worried About Climate Change?
If you read the scientific stuff, like the journals Nature and Science, etc., then you will be faced with all the scientific research that has been contributing to the consensus opinion that greenhouse warming has been triggered by human activity in the world, the so-called anthropogenic greenhouse effect. I’ve been reading this stuff for years and I don’t think there is some loony leftist conspiracy | Read More »
Donald Trump: Wife Raper, From The 1980s
Yeah if you didn’t want to or just unwittingly didn’t believe Donald Trump was officially the front runner for the Republican nomination for president, a Daily Beast assassination attempt disguised as a “news story” lets us know plain and clear that in fact Mr. Trump is the clear cut #1 in the field. Donald Trump won’t take this lying down I would imagine, but who | Read More »
The Iran Nuke Deal is Damnable Mess, From Beginning to End
The nuclear deal with Iran is a full-fledged disaster. The terms of the agreement are truly frightening, but they represent just the tip of the messy iceberg this process has become. To address just one heinous term of the deal that should independently disqualify it, Iran will have up to 24 days to respond to a concern, or to provide access to an inspector, should | Read More »
Is Nobody Talking About Meadows?
So just over eighteen hours ago, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) 83% put in a resolution to Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% to “vacate the chair.” He composed a list of grievances, a list that has been hashed and re-hashed ALL OVER these Redstate Diaries for over four years! Meadows lists the Speaker’s attempt to “consolidate power and centralize decision-making… punish | Read More »
BSA president Robert Gates: mentally asleep and morally bankrupt
- The objectives of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are referred to as the “Aims of Scouting” and they are: moral character development, citizenship training, and development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness.

Harry Reid channels Strom Thurmond: Senate to Vote on #DefundPlannedParenthood
The Senate is going to vote on a “right wing crazy deal” (as Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 8% calls it) before the August recess. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% supplied the bluster, but Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) 67% along with a core group of senators pushed through a deal that will allow a floor vote on | Read More »
The Constitution Has a Heartbeat
All too often we find the Constitution kicked to the curb, stomped upon and left for dead but a new decision by the D.C. Court of Appeals shows it still might have a heartbeat. At issue is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the crown jewel of liberal governance. The agency, created by the Dodd Franks financial reform bill, is one like no other. Shielded | Read More »

With Friends Like These: Cheryl Mills

140 House Members are Ready to #DefundPlannedParenthood
140 House members are on board to defund Planned Parenthood. That means only 78 more are needed to pass a bill before the August recess. This is the best opportunity the House has to deal with the issue while public outrage is at its peak, and before the forces of darkness at the command of the death merchants can be marshaled to squelch this rebellion | Read More »
Watch Carly Fiorina knock it out of the park at the Reagan Library
Very impressive. My ticket of choice for 2016 is now Cruz/Fiorina. If this lady isn’t onstage next week, it’s a shame. And I think, if she picks her spot carefully, she could deflate the Gasbag, aka Trump. Enjoy:
