The REAL War on Women

    Turn on the television, pick up a newspaper, listen to talk radio, and you’re very likely to hear about the “war on women.” Apparently, we’re to believe that women are being attacked, held back, and otherwise prevented from living free, equal, empowered lives in today’s America. Oddly enough, I would have never noticed this war, had it not been made a hot button issue with | Read More »

    “Why I Will NOT Support Donald J. Trump For President 2016!”

          Trump is a great guy, I’m quite certain and a great business man just to clarify that as well. Donald J. Trump is a living embodiment of the American dream. He’s led a successful business and has a large portion of his life embedded into entertainment appearing on “The Apprentice” and his reality T.V. show on real estate development. He’s also had an ample | Read More »

    Why Are So Many on the Right Helping the Left Undermine Our Patent System?

    It is disappointing to see so many people who usually reside on the Right – go screaming Leftward on an issue so fundamental to all-things-free-market as private property protection. In this particular case – patent protection. All sorts of things that in every other instance the Right loves to excoriate and ridicule – these Converts-to-the-Left must ignore or accept as a part of their effort | Read More »

    EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Diaries- November Edition

    Nov 5th: Dear diary: It has been a whirlwind week.  I discussed so many things over the past week, I don’ know what my positions on anything are anymore.  First, I was there for the African-Americans for Hillary event.  That was a nice event- I got to use my southern accent again.  Then I got the endorsement of the longshoremen.  I so want to be | Read More »

    Hail King Blather (Donald Trump talks himself to Death)

    Hail King Blather (Donald Trump talks himself to Death)

    President WIlliam Henry Harrison’s only inaugural speech lasted an hour and fifty-five minutes. It killed him. Not politically.  Or even intellectually.  Quite literally, it did kill him. On March 4, 1841, after winning a landslide election on a campaign slogan of “Tippecanoe and Tyler, too,” the Whig gave his speech on a cold, wet Thursday in Washington D.C.  As the war hero of Tippecanoe, who | Read More »

    Marita Noon: Hope for our water woes found in fracking technologies

    For years, water, or, more accurately, its scarcity, has been predicted to be the next doomsday scenario. In 1994, the American Philosophical Society published a book bearing the title: Is water our next crisis? In 2007, NBC featured: Crisis feared as U.S. water supplies dry up. More recently, in 2011, NPR did a story on Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power and Civilization—a new book in which the author posits: “water is surpassing oil as | Read More »

    Condom Update: “…we don’t have a rubber shortage in America.” – Ted Cruz

    Imagine if you will,  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% after another grueling day making yet another whistle stop in Iowa. He’s promised to hit every county before the caucus and that means visiting several counties in a day.  He’s probably tired. I would be. On his last stop of a three day swing through he gets asked a question by a member of the audience.  | Read More »

    Cruz, Rubio, Trump, and the Supreme Court

    Right to life is decided in the courts.  That is a plain matter of fact.  We have a Federal system with state and national governments, and three co-equal branches.  The legislative branches have demonstrated a regular ongoing willingness to curb, and in some cases outright ban abortion.  Executives have regularly signed these laws, but the Judiciary regularly overturns the laws over things like “Well, its | Read More »

    Most Pathetic Generation

    Most Pathetic Generation

    Reading this weekend in the Telegraph about the new wave of political correctness sweeping over our colleges and universities, and I couldn’t help but feel worried for the future of our nation. The creation of “safe zones” on college campuses, where thought police and Play-Doh soothe the nerves of this generation’s exceptional snowflakes when confronted with new ideas, is a sad indictment of our effete culture.

    Why Does Government Not Know – or Ignore – History?

    It’s one of our most oft-cited quotes. George Santayana’s “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The reason it so regularly recirculates is because we far too often fail its tenet. Which is truly sad. Because if you pay attention to the past – you can make some reasonable, rudimentary predictions about the future. And avoid a whole lot of completely | Read More »

    The Black Lives Matter Movement: The Preening of Petulant Millennials vs. Actually Accomplishing Anything

    I remember once hearing a question posed by some would be philosopher: “If you could do something that cured all of the ills of the world, but only if someone you despised would get the credit, would you do it?” It’s an interesting question with a number of elements to it. Are you really a humanitarian or do you just want to be seen as | Read More »

    Abortion Related Crime: There Are Far More Murders Committed by Pro-choicers Than by Pro-Lifers

    Abortion Related Crime: There Are Far More Murders Committed by Pro-choicers Than by Pro-Lifers

    Before even knowing the race, religion or political affiliation of the gunman responsible for the tragedy on Friday in Colorado Springs, many had already jumped to the usual spurious conclusions. Desperate for the suspect to fit the narrative, in their minds the suspect was a white Christian Republican. Within this crowd, the fact that people were dying seemed to be of secondary importance, while unleashing | Read More »

    2016 Gubernatorial Races- November News

    DELAWARE:  There has not been a Republican Governor of Delaware since 1988 and don’t expect one in 2016.  The most credible name mentioned is state senator Colin Bonini, but he will likely run for the Lt. Governor’s position next year instead. INDIANA:  Polling is hard to come by, but one out of Ball State shows that Mike Pence has a comfortable if not overbearing lead | Read More »

    ESPN says there is too much patriotism in sports

    There is a natural affinity between sports and the military. Both unambiguously reward hard work and excellence. Both teach personal responsibility for success or failure, and celebrate the virtues of courage, earned-pride, and honor. Sporting events are also among the biggest occasions when Americans come together in their communities to enjoy the fruits of freedom that our service men and women provide. So I’ve never | Read More »

    By Their Tax Plans You Shall Know Them

    Most Americans do not pay any federal income tax. This means to most Americans when Republicans talk about changing the income tax system, they could care less. It is a hard truth. The candidates can talk all they want about the confusing, complicated, and time-consuming tax system; however, to most Americans who do not pay federal taxes, it just does not matter. Why then is | Read More »

    “Could Public Education Be Taking A Hit For The Team[Progressive]…?”

    There is no doubt that youth in America are becoming more progressive by the time people stand in line to elect a candidate whether it be at the local, state and or federal level. When demographics come in after an election we glance, ponder and ask ourselves what are we doing wrong…? Could public education be taking a hit for the team? For most of | Read More »

    Ben Carson should drop out of the race immediately

    I’ve said from the start that Carson is a decent man, but I liked him a lot more as a doctor and not as a presidential candidate. He had no business running for president, much like Herman Cain didn’t. Neither were qualified, and neither had any clue about the biggest issues, especially foreign policy. It goes beyond that though. Carson is wasting millions of dollars | Read More »

    2016 US Senate News: November Edition

    ARIZONA: We have limited polling out of Arizona showing that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 51% would handily defeat his main primary opponent, Kelli Ward, by an obscene margin.  In a hypothetical general election against likely Democratic opponent Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) 17%, he would also win.  However, about one-third of the general electorate is undecided. ARKANSAS: The DSCC recently | Read More »

    Planned Parenthood is ill-clothed in robes of self-righteous hypocrisy

    Planned Parenthood is ill-clothed in robes of self-righteous hypocrisy

    This has to be one of the worst cases of confirmation bias and self-righteous hypocrisy I’ve ever seen. Before anything official has been released about Richard Lewis Dear, 57, the man who killed three, including a police officer who gave his life in the line of duty, the press and Planned Parenthood have pulled the chocks and rolled the bandwagon down the hill. Planned Parenthood | Read More »

    “Latinos and the GOP vote”

    We live in difficult times where economic, social and foreign issues strike our nation where voters know nothing in who and what they vote for. Throughout time the Democratic Party has spent ample years diligently indoctrinating the Hispanic populations voters, depriving the very ground we Republicans stand on with our fellow Tejanos y Americanos making it appear only one way “we don’t care.” Our party | Read More »

    CJ Pearson lacks political principles, but manufactures the attention he craves

    CJ Pearson lacks political principles, but manufactures the attention he craves

    We learned recently that, shortly after announcing his candidacy for Chairman of the Georgia Teen Republicans, YouTube star CJ Pearson is renouncing conservatism and the GOP, because conservatives aren’t focused enough on race issues and young people. This is not surprising to me, as I have followed his rise closely. I have written about him on RedState before. I documented how Pearson had joined [mc_name name=’Sen. | Read More »

    Washington Post and New York Times: Ted Cruz is the next Barry Goldwater

    It is no coincidence that with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%recent rise in the polls come attempts to downplay or diminish him as a viable GOP candidate. Two recent columns, one each from the Washington Post and NY Times, attempt to do just that.  A column on November 24th by obscure Washington Post columnist Paul Waldman titled “Sen. Ted Cruz could actually | Read More »

    Want to end the problem of excessive use of force by police ? Easy. Eliminate police unions.

    Set against the recent growth of the Black Lives Matter and social justice movements (which pretty much denigrate all cops as inherently evil, and also seek to emasculate the police) there has arisen  a spirited, (and happily civil debate) among conservatives and libertarians, at Red State and elsewhere,  as to the proper role and function of police in our society, and how some fear we | Read More »

    God bless fracking!

    The environmentalists and the left and the Democrats¹ would have us believe that fracking is evil, evil, evil! but I, as a working man, sure have seen the benefits. The chart shows what I had to pay for heating oil last winter, in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, compared with what I paid for a delivery on Wednesday. The great increase in domestic oil production, coupled with | Read More »

    Donald Trump is a horrible, terrible, very bad person

    Photo: Reuters Recent reports from anonymous sources have Donald Trump yelling at his wife, kicking his dog, and promising to “bomb the snot out of everyone who looks at us funny.” He likes beautiful women and he thinks his daughter is beautiful. How weird! Current GOP front runner Donald Trump is mean. He yells at people who interrupt him. And he makes fun of children | Read More »

    The New York Times subtle hit piece on Carly Fiorina

    Donald Trump did more than mock a disabled reporter

    Your are a mother, a father, a sister, a brother to a special needs person. Maybe you married someone. It can be Parkinsons Disease, it can be Spina Bifida, or arthrogryposis like this reporter. Perhaps it is Autism, or another mental disorder. Trump just gave the world permission to mock your child, your sibling, your mate. The world is going to be far more cruel | Read More »

    Election 2016: The National Security Vote

    Amid the changing demographics and social attitudes of Americans, one constant – at least post-Vietnam – is respect and appreciation for those who have served their country in the armed services.

    Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you and all that you love.

    Pray, cook, feast and enjoy this day of peace in peace. God Bless everyone. Truth, Life & Love Tony Carlton

    For MSNBC, Thanksgiving isn’t a time to be thankful for what you have

    Thanks to William Teach of the Pirate’s Cove, I saw these wonderful hints from MSNBC on how to enjoy political conversation during Thanksgiving dinner. The byline on the article is simply “MSNBC staff,” so we are informed that this isn’t something designated as an opinion piece, but is simply a standard news (?) article. MSNBC has never hidden its leftist orientation, at least not in | Read More »

    Sen. Mike Lee gives the Thanksgiving Address

    This year Conservatives we get a treat. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) 100% gave the weekly Republican address, and since it’s  Thanksgiving it’s special.   It’s a little over five minutes and features a tribute to our service personnel, also volunteers, moms and dads, and other great people. Give a listen and make sure to crank it up real loud when the relatives of a ‘different’ political persuasion show up for the feast today | Read More »

    Myra Adams: President Roosevelt’s 1941 Thanksgiving Proclamation is Relevant Now

    Re-posted from WND Did hear this week that “World War III” is trending across social media and tweeting jokes about it is all the rage?

    Being Thankful For Liberty

    We give thanks to the Almighty today for liberty’s bounty on our shores. But it is important to remember that our American experiment was not actually founded in liberty. Rather, our history began with an early — though equally destructive — form of socialism. When those early settlers landed on Plymouth Rock, they weren’t city slickers ill prepared for wilderness life; nor were they misguided | Read More »

    Decoding Obama’s Contrarian ISIS Strategy

    Picking a Presidential Nominee in 2016

    If enough conservatives unite, they can nominate and elect any of the more conservative Republican presidential candidates.

    Mislabeling, Lying, and Redefining: Leftists’ Favorite Tools Morph Terrorism into Citizens with Guns

    Vox is really talented when it comes to mislabeling, lying and redefining.  They have the same level of integrity you would expect from Pravda, only in the 21st Century.  And, like Pravda, no shame in any of these exercises.  In this case, they are asserting that citizens with guns are a much larger threat than ISIS and Syrian refugees. The entire article is premised on | Read More »

    Cruz vs Rubio will be decided in (early) December

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% is clearly the establishment favorite right now.  He also has managed to put in a rider that prevented the use of general funds to cover the “risk corridors” in the ACA.  This block is what has United signalling that they may exit the exchanges, and if followed by Aetna this would be full bore death spiral. However, | Read More »

    The Republican presidential candidate who has done the most to attack Obysmalcare

    One of the reasons that I have been more in favor of candidates like Scott Walker, Rick Perry and Carly Fiorina is that I look for candidates who have actually done something, as opposed to those who say that they are going to get something done, if only they are given the opportunity. Senators and Representatives seem to get such opportunities much less frequently, but | Read More »

    Steven Hayward emulates those who mocked Reagan.
