Men: #ShoutYourVasectomy!

    On the front page this morning, the always erudite Repair_Man_Jack demolishes the vile #ShoutYourAbortion. (There’s HUGE potential for a tie-in with the NRA) A few hard core pro-abort fanatics are able to manipulate social media to garner far more attention than they deserve. Satire has always been an effective means of deflating anything and everything  (BTW, I can’t wait for Saturday Night Live to begin | Read More »

    The most awesomest “pro-choice” defense of Planned Parenthood

    For nearly 20 years, LifeSiteNews has focused on reporting what the mainstream media won’t. For example, we have heavily covered the scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood’s use of illegal abortions to illegally harvest fetal organs and other parts — and how Democrats are willing to shut down the government unless taxpayers are forced to continue funding these horrific activities. Last night, we launched a video highlighting | Read More »

    The GOP Field Odds After Debate #2

    After the second debate, every candidate claimed they achieved what they set out to do.  Flash polls taken immediately after the poll gave the victory to either Trump or Fiorina which is interesting since they had perhaps the best dust up although Fiorina clearly had the more memorable lines.  Flash polls mean very little; they are initial reactions to what happened and have no bearing | Read More »

    Trump is truly fascinating: What’s Logic got to do with it?

    Trump is truly fascinating: What's Logic got to do with it?

    It’s remarkable watching Donald Trump eviscerate the mainstream media. If this was “The Matrix” he’s Neo.  If this was “Star Trek,” I’d be like Spock studying a new intelligent life in the universe that feeds off its own popularity: the more energy put into killing it, the stronger it gets. Trump is the hate eater; he digests abhorrence and excretes devotion. “Fascinating,” the Spock in | Read More »

    Trump done with Fox because…Momma, they’re picking on me again!

    GOP Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has decided he’s done with Fox News. Again. I know this because it was on Twitter. .@FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2015 Once again the blame can be laid squarely on the feet of | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Declares Reid Head of the GOP Senate – After Spat Over Defunding Planned Parenthood

    Ted Cruz Declares Reid Head of the GOP Senate - After Spat Over Defunding Planned Parenthood

    Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% introduced a resolution to temporarily fund the government, which Republican Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% equated with lack of leadership. Cruz said that in his estimation, McConnell is no longer the leader of the majority GOP congress. According to Cruz, “The position of Republican leadership boils | Read More »

    Colbert Makes Political Comedy History: TRUMP

    Colbert Makes Political Comedy History: TRUMP

    For years, Stephen Colbert entertained late night audiences and DVR-watchers with his sardonic caricature of cable news punditry. As a conservative, I could find the humor in his clever satire and most conservative pundits did as well. On September 8, 2015, Colbert launched his own Late Show, taking over the slot of tenured David Letterman, and has provided a few memorable moments, but I’m a | Read More »

    Clinton, Sanders Race Each Other Towards Drug Rationing Dystopia

    Hillary Clinton released her plan on pharmaceutical drugs yesterday. It’s the policy equivalent of setting a large pile of economics textbooks on fire and laughing manically. “This is an astonishingly naïve approach,” Amitabh Chandra, a professor of public policy at Harvard University, told the New York Times about it. Another way of putting it is, this is what you get when the Democratic frontrunner, under | Read More »

    Typical DC: Patent Lawsuit ‘Reform’ Will Lead to Many, MANY More Lawsuits

    Under consideration in Washington, D.C. is legislation that will fundamentally transform our patent system. It will render this Constitutionally protected intellectual property product – dramatically less protected. The bills to which I refer are the Innovation Act (House) and the Patent Act (Senate). There are many, many reasons to oppose them. The reason given for why this legislation is allegedly necessary is to undo the | Read More »

    Is the leak about the FBI recovering Hillary’s emails designed to cancel her testimony to the Benghazi committee?

    Last night the news broke that the FBI has recovered the missing Clinton emails…those she had called “personal” and had been deleted. First, realize that this information was leaked by an anonymous source “close to the investigation.” The FBI has only said that its investigation is expected to take several more months, and it would release nothing until it is completed. Clinton is scheduled to | Read More »

    Religion: A Constitutional Litmus Test

    We expect liberals to misconstrue comments made by conservatives. They need to strike fear into anybody giving Republicans a fair shot. Unfortunately we have some in the Republican Party who would rather join the attack on Dr. Ben Carson than understand the valid point he was making. People are shaking their heads wondering why Carson doesn’t understand that the Founders wanted no religious litmus test for office. | Read More »

    With Friends Like These: John Podesta- Part 2

    In the previous entry, I described Podesta’s rise to power within the Democratic Party and the Clinton inner circle.  Being a good politician, he straddled the line of loyalty between Hillary and Barack Obama.  Obama and Clinton policies and tactics are classic textbook versions of his Center for American Progress (CAP) policies.  This is a group conceived as a think tank that quickly evolved into | Read More »

    Liberal Hollywood

    I just do not get it, how is an entire industry consumed with liberal ideology ?  I did. To waste my time with the Emmy’s, but it sounds like every actor thanked the bravery of the transgender community. How did that happen? Plus, I’m a huge Walking Dead fan, but why in the spinoff is the military always sen as the bad guy.  I mean, | Read More »

    What the Washington Post Gets Wrong About C.J. Pearson

    You know you must be doing something right when the Washington Post writes a critique piece on you. Except for this time, the piece was not on just anyone. It was on a 13 year old boy. C.J. Pearson, Coreco JaQuan Pearson, is a young, African-American conservative who posted a video criticizing the Obama administration for its handling of the Ahmed clock ordeal,  and police | Read More »

    If we had a Muslim President

    With all this sudden media crazed focus on the hypothetical proposition of having a Muslim President, it brought to mind another question. If we had a Muslim President, what would America’s actions look like? It might look like this. 1) At the first opportunity, he would publicly decry that Israel should fall back to its 1967 borders. 2) He would turn his back on Iran’s | Read More »

    Ticking off the liberal media is not a qualification for President

    TL;DR : We can’t be grateful that candidates and public figures are learning to push back on media narratives and PC assumptions. But we make a serious mistake in confusing that with a qualification for President. Neither Carson nor Trump – nor anybody – is qualified for President simply because they are saying things liberals in the media oppose. Early this year, the now defunct | Read More »

    Beware Fiorina

    Yes, everyone love Carly. Now that Scott Walker is out, everyone is looking for somewhere to go. It appears that everyone is looking for somewhere to land. Yes, many are reporting that Rubio is the top choice for staffers and money.  ( yes, that’s a shout out to Erick Erickson). And due to her debate performances, Fiorina looks like a nice landing spot for voters. | Read More »

    THE QUESTIONS JUST KEEP COMING….Lois Lerner nightmares and the future of Government

    Liberals who are losing the majority opinion on Climate Change fear mongering and seeing the real possibility of their millions in dollars of grant-money drying up now desire those who DISAGREE with their conclusions about the environment prosecuted and jailed(!) under the RICO statutes. This comes the same day as news that the Pentagon has ordered our soldiers, dedicated to protecting innocent people from the bad | Read More »

    Expect Trump to Suspend his Campaign

    First, Trump surely knew that he wouldn’t win.  He is an arrogant blowhard, but not a moron.  If he expected to win he would have learned the basics of policy (either foreign or domestic).  If he expected to win he would have actually put his campaign in a furnished room.  If he expected to win he would attend critical forums.  If he expected to win he would | Read More »

    Volkswagen, Boeing and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 – Incentivized Cheating

    Volkswagen is having a very bad week.  It appears they figured out that it was more profitable to cheat than to comply with U.S. law.  It further appears that they outsmarted the testing protocols with relative ease for some period of time until the EPA discovered the “flaw”. President Johnson launched the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to eradicate poverty.  President Bush extended | Read More »

    200,000 Refugees to the U.S. or ISIS Infiltrators?

    The Obama Administration just announced that it wants to admit 200,000 Syrian “refugees” into this country. These people found refuge from war when they reached Turkey. They are at best economic migrants at worst terrorists. Something is wrong with the make up of this group. The vast majority of these people are fighting age men.This is not normal. Where are the women, children, and elderly? | Read More »

    On behalf of my fellow Catholics, I apologize to my fellow conservatives for the Pope’s misrepresentation of our views on poverty and economics.

    The bishops and cardinals wanted to pick a cardinal from latin america to be the next pope, and that’s good, they just picked the wrong one. Pope Francis isn’t representing Catholicism, he’s representing progressivism. Initially I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, but after one statement over another came out showing clearly that he meant what he’s been saying about the environment, | Read More »

    Low Information Primary Season

    Watching Fox News doing a mini post mortem on Walker, I found myself getting frustrated. Their analysis is that, with the way he presented himself, Governor Walker didn’t come across as a fighter. Well, why should he have to? Part of the case for Walker was that he is not only a conservative and a reformer, but a conservative reformer who’s been able to do | Read More »

    Why Culture Matters: The Natural State of Man is One of Poverty, Scarcity and Conflict

    One of my favorite teachers in high school was Mr. Kelly. Ostensibly he was a reading teacher, but his interests were far more inclined towards history and cultures. We once got into a discussion about the great cultures throughout history. The obvious names came up… the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, Aztecs, ancient China etc. Then he asked the question about what determines a great | Read More »

    Keeping the Eye on the Prize

    The stakes in 2016 are too high for this country to endure another four years of a Democrat in the White House.  Like most here, I have my favorite candidate who I believe would be the best choice for the GOP.  All candidates have some warts, but all be would more palatable than Hillary Clinton (well, maybe not all). As we head towards more debates, | Read More »

    Myra Adams: Yom Kippur Story – The Scapegoat Who Took Away the Sins of the Israelites

    Author’s Note: The following piece was posted on September 26, 2012 at PJ Media. It was about the Biblical origins of Yom Kippur, the holy Jewish Day of Atonement. Now, three years later and with Yom Kippur beginning today at sundown I was feeling called to re-post this piece for RedState readers but with a new personal addendum at the end. | Read More »

    Rep. Kinzinger(RINO-IL): We Can’t Defund Planned Parenthood, They’re Too Popular

Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)' chamber='house' mcid='K000378' ](R-IL)On Monday morning Illinois RINO congressman Adam Kinzinger was on 1440 WROK’s Riley and Scott program and talked about the pending fight to defund Planned Parenthood and the prospects of a partial government shutdown.(Note Kinzinger won’t use the word partial shutdown).  Kinzinger said that at no time would a shutdown be beneficial to us | Read More »

    Alright, feel free to make the case for Cruz

    Still think Scott Walker would’ve been a terrific President, particularly with regard to labor reform, entitlement reform, getting rid of Obamacare and all issues surrounding the budget. Am still disgusted both at how he was treated by the liberal media and at a lot of the base abandoning him for Trump. After years of consistent conservatism, a truly phenomenal record as Governor, and being encouraged | Read More »

    Why I’m jumping off the Carly bandwagon just when it started to get rolling

    Why I'm jumping off the Carly bandwagon just when it started to get rolling

    This Presidential election cycle has been a blessing and a curse. We are blessed to have a much stronger group of candidates (and not just by sheer volume) and cursed because the choices have the party currently splintered far more than I would like. There are five candidates in this cycle who would have been my top choice over every possibility four years ago. It’s | Read More »

    Marita Noon: Not all energy is created equal

    Those “renewable energy tax credits” are mainly two: the wind Production Tax Credit (PTC) and solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Like the oil-export ban, the wind PTC is an archaic policy that has no place in today’s modern reality of energy abundance.

    Kim Davis Did No Wrong In The Sight Of Kentucky Law

      We all remember when Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to distribute same sex marriage licenses. We remember when she was jailed, and the left cheered. We remember when she was freed and the right was ecstatic. No matter your feelings on Kim Davis, or gay marriage, the judge that jailed her violated Kentucky law. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of Kentucky (this should | Read More »

    The longtime Trump-Sharpton and Fiorina-Jackson connections

    The longtime Trump-Sharpton and Fiorina-Jackson connections

    There is a strong appetite for “outsider” candidates among the GOP electorate. Following the recent presidential primary debate, Donald Trump maintained his lead and Carly Fiorina shot up to second-place in some polls. Never being elected does not mean one is an outsider. Which should go without saying, but most people don’t seem to understand that fact. Conversely, holding office does not make one an | Read More »

    Chaffetz Bill Regulating Internet Endangers Gun Rights

    Proposed regulations of the internet in legislation sponsored by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81% which intent to regulation internet-based gambling could also imperil gun rights. Michael Hammond, the Chief Counsel for Gun Owners of American (GOA), recently appeared on the Johnny Rowland Daily radio show, which focuses on news, guns, and motorsports, to discuss guns rights and related issues. As part of | Read More »

    Defeat the Slavitt Nomination

    Andrew Slavitt should be nominated as the poster boy for crony capitalism rather than the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  Slavitt is the former health care executive whose former company has received hundreds of millions of dollars in government contracts while serving as a deputy administrator at CMS.  Slavitt was able to join the administration only after the White House | Read More »

    Does Fiorina actually give the GOP the best chance at beating Hillary?

    No one has as yet started to plot the dynamics of a Clinton/Fiorina race. It’s way too early…the GOP race is still in flux, and there’s a growing sense that Hillary might just not make it to the nomination. However, it’s fascinating on so many levels to contemplate that possibility, and there seems to be something more than anecdotal evidence that Fiorina would have the | Read More »

    The German Deal

    Lets try and put the Iran deal into some less abstract terms. Its 1944. Germany is losing World War II but insists on fighting to the bitter end. The Soviets have broken through and are racing towards Berlin without any serious German opposition. The Allies have landed at Normandy and liberated Paris. Historically, Hitler would be dead in April of 1945 but not before thousands | Read More »

    Ben Carson and the First Amendment

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Most of us know these words very well. They are the infamous text of the First Amendment to the United | Read More »

    Russia Will Double Down And Up The Ante In The Middle East

    So the Russian military is now flowing into Syria to buttress the Assad regime in its fight with the Syrian opposition rebels and ISIS. Meanwhile the Free Syrian Army, which the U.S. spent 50 million dollars on so far, has a total of maybe 9 U.S. trained fighters in the fight. And an FSA commander who was recently interviewed admits that many of his fighters | Read More »

    Cruz’ path to the nomination

    First, everyone knows there will be a winnowing.  Rick Perry has already dropped out.  Grahm, Jindal, Santorum, and Walker have all registered at 0% in at least one recent poll and so probably will end up dropping out before votes are cast (additionally Walker vendors are apparently owed $100k that hasn’t been paid).  Christie and Kasich can do no better than Bush and so will | Read More »

    A Muslim president actually IS a bad idea, according to the Koran

    A Muslim president actually IS a bad idea, according to the Koran

    On Sunday, a Muslim cleric declared that Fantasy Football is considered “haram”—that means forbidden by Islamic law.  That’s only the latest thing found to be off-limits for followers of Islam.  Islamic State clerics famously forbid the practice of pigeon breeding because “sight of the birds’ genitals as they fly overhead is offensive to Islam.” (Leading to perhaps the greatest headline in the history of publishing: | Read More »

    President Obama Further Widens the Chasm Between DC and America

    Over the weekend the Gallup polling company delivered us their latest: “75% in U.S. See Widespread Government Corruption – This figure is up from two in three in 2007 (67%) and 2009 (66%).” That already-incredibly high 2009 number likely reflects the horrendous government bailout era. When Americans saw DC in anti-capitalism-fashion throw over a trillion dollars at a handful of companies – which were led | Read More »

    The Making of a Conservative Family

    My husband and I just spent two and a half years traveling back and forth from our home in Texas to an apartment in Colorado where he was working. We rented an apartment in Colorado Springs, and found ourselves there just in time to witness the beginning of the ‘marijuana fun fest’ taking place in the Centennial State. If you eat out, you will find employees who cook your | Read More »

    Who is Going to Pay for All This?

    I am listening to everybody running on our side of the fence. Carefully. To the jot and minute tittle. I favor Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and Bobby Jindal and don’t give a hoot about the rest, at least for now. But when it comes down to the wire as things may very well change and alter the present political horizon, I | Read More »

    Recent Attacks on Political Free Speech

    Ever since the Supreme Court handed down its Citizens United decision, the Left has been apoplectic in their response and has been trying their best to limit the effects of that ruling.  Without getting into the minute details, suffice to say the Court ruled that campaign contributions were a form of political speech and under the First Amendment restrictions on political speech must survive the highest form | Read More »

    Is Trump In The Wrong?

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gestures and declares “You’re fired!” at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. In an intriguing turn of events, Donald Trump refused to correct an audience member for his statement calling President Obama a muslim. The exchange went as follows: the man stated that,”We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current | Read More »

    Cultural Sanity: The Conservative Movement

    Not too long ago I wrote an article about the gross misunderstanding of the Constitution from both sides of the aisle. This next installment of Cultural Sanity focuse more on Pop Culture and the Conservative Movement’s presence in it, or really the total and complete lack of it. Almost every Republican and TEA Party gathering I have attended I’ve heard all sorts of talk about | Read More »

    Dog Piling on Fiorina

    It would appear that by virtue of her solid performance in the second debate, attention has turned to Carly Fiorina.  The criticisms have come hard and heavy and center on (1) her tenure at Hewlett-Packard, (2) her past “conservative” record, or lack thereof, and (3) her run against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 6% in 2010.  With increased popularity comes increased scrutiny and | Read More »

    The Scarlet ‘H’ for ‘Hater’

    We have arrived as a nation this election cycle in a liberal never never land of sorts; a world where all but elite liberal purists can expect to be declared guilty of one unforgivable sin or another and a place in political history where the possibility of true atonement for once disagreeing with their disturbing and constantly vacillating world view does not exist. In the new liberal twilight zone- no amount of apology, bowing, or scraping serves to wash away the | Read More »

    What Do Hispanics Want?

    Much has been made of the Hispanic vote in the 2016 election.  It makes sense in certain states where the Hispanic vote can make a difference in a close election and awarding of that state’s electoral votes.  However, it must be realized that the Republican candidate need not “win” the Hispanic vote outright nationally or even in particular states.  An improvement over 2008 or 2012 | Read More »
