Stump Speech Coverage
The stump speeches have been delivered and the citizens of America are excited for the election! The speeches that were given by a couple of the candidates left opponents gasping for air. As for some of the candidate’s speeches did not show the true colors of an American president. There is an abundance of issues that we have in our country, many of which were | Read More »
Biden In Iowa: Stop March Of Tea Party Keep Senate In Dem Hands
Vice President Joe Biden campaigning in Davenport, Iowa for Democrat US Senate candidate Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) said that if Democrats maintain control of the Senate it would stop the march of the Tea Party and force the Republican Party to become Democrats-lite once more and compromise in favor of expanding the federal government and placing future generations in more debt. | Read More »
The Fight for Ticket Fairness in Michigan
Amongst American ideals, the right to private property is among the most important. We are allowed to buy, own, and sell our property as we like, when we like. It’s just how it works. Well, it’s how it’s supposed to work but, in Michigan, that’s not always the case. Got tickets to sell? I’m afraid you can’t just sell them as you wish. “It’s not | Read More »
Democrats Think Women Are Simplistic And Stupid
Anyone paying to the 2014 midterms is aware that Democrats are kicking the “war on women” into high gear. It’s the latest rebirth of identity politics and scare tactics by the party. Democrats believe that the top priorities for women are unrestricted abortions and free birth control. The implication is that women are not responsible enough to engage in family planning, not capable of providing | Read More »

The “Consider This” Podcast: The Catholic Church, the Bible, and Gays
Episode 90 of the Consider This Podcast has been released; conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. If you think it sounds like this episode is going to delve more into religion that it has up until this point, you have a discerning ear. But when I started this podcast, I promised you a take on these issues that you might not have heard elsewhere. So, depending | Read More »
Marita Noon: EU climate compromise ~ I will if you will
On Thursday October 23, 28 European leaders met at a summit in Brussels to reach a climate deal that would build on previous targets of a 20 percent cut in greenhouse gases, a 20 percent boost in the use of renewable sources, and a 20 percent increase in energy efficiency, from the benchmark year of 1990, by 2020. …The “decision” calls for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of at least 40 percent and a 27 percent increase in renewables and energy efficiency, from 1990 levels, by 2030—though the original plan called for a 30-percent increase in renewables and efficiency.

Big government erodes our liberty while insulting our intelligence
It seems that it’s impossible for those in the ruling class to contain the contempt they have for all of us shlubs who put them into office and pay their salaries. For some time, the Ad Council and the Department of Energy have been running a radio public service announcement that defends the banning of incandescent light bulbs. The PSA notes that the incandescent bulb | Read More »
Illegitimacy: America’s racist past and present dooms its present and future…
I recently got into a lengthy discussion with some friends that makes me wonder how much longer the country can survive. Why? Because of such starkly different views on the nation, our history and the role of government. Frankly, I’ve never felt so bewildered in my life as to how people looking at the same information can come to such differing results… and I’ll point | Read More »
Did Hillary just step into it , BIG TIME….. up to her cankles…
Wonder why this little gem hasn’t gotten much more attention? BE PATIENT. IT WILL, SOON. BIG TIME!!! Breitbart has the video: Appearing Friday at a rally for Martha Coakley, (she who, not Wendy David, is running THE ABSOLUTELY WORST CAMPAIGN EVER) Hillary dropped this little nugget: “Don’t let anybody tell you that businesses create jobs..” Oh, really? Pray tell us, m’lady..then who does? http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2014/10/24/Hillary-Dont-Let-Anybody-Tell-You-That-Businesses-Create-Jobs Hillary | Read More »
Without Reliable, Rapid Tests, Ebola Ignorance Infects Us All
Like most Americans, I suffer from a bad case of Ignorantia Febris Ebola, or Ebola Ignorance. When Ebola first hit American shores, my gut instinct was to simply ban travel from the affected countries, or at least quarantine travelers for 21 days. I wrote “I’m all for preventing a panic, but a panic is what we will get if we don’t get this situation in hand quickly.” | Read More »
George Soros trying to buy Secretary of State’s office in New Mexico
George Soros’ Dark Money Queen As George Soros pours money into the the New Mexico Secretary of State race via ads his we see other hard-Left groups bolstering the effort to push Soros-favorite Democrat nominee Maggie T. Oliver into the office of Secretary of State. Four years of honesty and integrity in the Secretary of State’s office have been enough, according to the hard-Left. Maggie | Read More »
Midterm Races in North Carolina
Before addressing the Senate race, there are some interesting congressional House seat races. The Republicans hold the partisan advantage in the Tar Heel State’s delegation 9-4. No one is expecting much change here, although change may be in the offing. Three of those 4 Democratic seats are safe. The exception is the 7th District where incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC) is | Read More »
Thomas Perez, Frontrunner for AG, Called For “Shared Prosperity” 20 Times in Speech
Thomas Perez was Obama’s Labor Secretary pick 15 months ago, and he’s emerging as top contender for Attorney General as well. Is it any wonder that he gave a major speech at the National Press Club this week to share his vision of America? Entitled, “Calling for an Economy That Works for Everyone”, Perez discusses the concept of “shared prosperity”. How many times did he | Read More »
How Conservative Principles Empower Teachers
Years and years of failed efforts and billions of dollars later, educational reforms- both liberal and conservative- have basically resulted in stagnation. The primary reason, in my estimation, is the top-down, Washington dictated policies which have solved very little. Despite massive federal spending, those federal dollars account for about 9% of any school board’s budget. With those dollars come regulations and mandates which eat up about | Read More »
Utah and Grama
This is from a April 2012 blog post. Since the local liberal news paper seems to be bringing this up again, I thought I would repost the blog post here: http://fredcox4utah.blogspot.com/2012/04/grama.html For years after the DesNews v SLCo decision and others, the Utah Legislature tried to fix the problems with Grama. They had a committee meet for 2 years and then those recommendations were scrapped. | Read More »
Brannigan v. Lipinski Candidate Forum Results
Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) 24% In case you missed last week’s 3rd Congressional District Candidate’s Forum, you can catch my speech on the link below.

That video can be seen right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYDKbHc_3Lw One of the newspapers | Read More »
Ebola and The Erosion of Trust
The Ebola crisis has revealed the best in health care workers and the worst. It is commendable that so many would put their lives on the line to treat the suffering. Organizations like Samaritan’s Purse and Doctors Without Borders are doing God’s work. What they are doing highlights the heroism that many health-care professionals possess. However, recent actions (and attitudes) of some health care workers | Read More »
I have civil rights too. I support mandatory quarantine.
It was reported that Kaci Hickox a nurse on assignment with Doctors without borders was placed in quarantine, even though she did not exhibit symptoms. From the coverage she is not too happy about that. Great! Way to go Christie. This is the first intelligent and most effective government action taken to quell the “hysteria” towards people exposed to Ebola entering this country. Of course one person’s hysteria | Read More »
The November Supreme Court Docket
In November, the Supreme Court will hear argument in 10 cases. They will kick off arguments with Omnicare, Inc. vs. Laborers District Council Construction Industry Pension Fund.

Common Core “Scheme Team”
There are predators in our midst and they’re stalking parents, children and our State’s Government. The goal is to take control of our schools systems, our Governors, our children and parental supervision. It’s a deadly game that must be stopped immediately. Way back in 1996 Achieve, Inc. started accessing our educational system and started developing what they called national standards. The national standards eventually | Read More »
Midterm Races in Kansas
Who would have thought that Kansas would be a political battleground in 2014, but here we are with both the Republican Governor and incumbent Republican Senator endangered. For Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) 82%, the trouble began in the GOP primary with him taking serious criticisms for his lack of presence in Kansas and being portrayed as a Washington insider who lost touch | Read More »
Gungor and the Art of Apostasy
It’s neither loving, merciful, or grace-filled to treat other Christians in the manner in which Michael Gungor has been treated. It’s far more wrong for those who are so skilled in the art of apostasy while accusing those who simply have bad theology of being apostates, than it is for the accused to have poor doctrine in need of correction. Those with poor doctrine might be open to loving correction, but the self-appointed inquisition has no interest in correction.

Why the Welfare State Isn’t Well and It Isn’t Fair
Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution. Socialism’s goal was | Read More »
Midterm Races in Connecticut and New Hampshire
Besides the congressional races in Connecticut, there is a competitive gubernatorial race. First, incumbent Democratic Governor Dan Malloy finds himself in a serious match up against Republican Tom Foley who barely lost to Malloy in 2010. In a race that most polls show Foley ahead or barely behind, the attacks have gotten personal of late with both sides bringing up old allegations against one another. | Read More »
War On Terror: We Need To Finish The Job
As ISIS continues to unleash a campaign of terror in the Middle East, Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraqi researcher who recently wrote a book about ISIS, warns of the devastation an ISIS/Al Qaeda collaboration could bring. Al-Hashimi’s book is based on his exclusive access to the organization’s documents, years of research and his experience with advising Iraqi security forces. In short, al-Hashimi points out that such a | Read More »
Why is there no conservative version of Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, or Colbert?
Why is there no conservative version of Bill Maher?

Jaylen Fryberg, WA School Shooter: Where Was Grace?
What are we to do with this latest school shooting tragedy? Unlike the killings in Oklahoma City and Ottawa, Canada, this was no terrorist or self-proclaimed warrior carrying out a religious fatwa. Jaylen Fryberg was a 14-year-old boy. He could be my son, or anyone’s. This is really a tragedy, every bit as much as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost two years ago. Except that by all accounts, Jaylen Fryberg was | Read More »
Obama’s Trying To Kill The SBA, Who’s Trying To Stop Him
I worked on President Obama’s first campaign. I met wit him and talked with him about my concerns about federal small business programs. He invited me to join his Small Business Advisory Council.

Open Thread- DHS Should be Too Busy to Go on a Panty Raid. But They’re Not.
It’s Friday and after a long week of troubling news around the world and in our own backyard, perhaps a dose of comedy is in order. Well it would be comical if the DHS wasn’t involved since I’m pretty sure they have bigger fish to fry like say, homeland security. We’re told Ebola is a national security threat, as well as ax wielding lone wolves, ISIS and of | Read More »
Cultural Vertigo and Christian Persecution in America
Real Americans marvel at the vertigo our culture would now induce in men who breathed air a scant century past. Oh, the machines we have set into motion and the devils we have unleashed on an unsuspecting Universe! And while tethering one’s soul to a meteorite entitles one to a dizzying panorama of burning horizons, such vistas accompany the fleeting perspectives of itinerancy; and with | Read More »
A Tale of Two Michigan Campaigns
It is looking less and less likely that the GOP will capture the open Senate seat in Michigan. The polls are favoring the Democrat, Rep. Gary Peters (D-MI) 0%, in this bluish purple state. Despite the recent voting history for President and Senate, it does not have to be this way. While the campaign of Terri Land is circling the drain, the | Read More »
Federal Court Puts Road Block in the Way of Justice for Conservatives Targeted by the IRS
The fight for justice is never the easy road, and it doesn’t always win the first round.
Yesterday a federal district court dismissed two lawsuits (at least a majority of the claims) brought on behalf of conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS.
Unfortunately, the court’s ruling is based on what we believe is a mistaken interpretation of the law that would allow corruption to continue unfettered at the highest levels of federal government and deny justice to those who had their constitutional rights violated.

Common Core Not State Led – Here’s Proof
Who’s Looking Out for Our Kids? Supporters of Common Core love claiming Common Core is a state led initiative. Proponents of the scheme will instantly label anyone who says otherwise a conspiracy nut and fit them for a tin foil hat. Jeb Bush recently called opponents of Common Core the Black Helicopter bunch. Obama’s Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan took a different tack, calling opponents | Read More »
Michelle Nunn Doesn’t Understand Basic Economics
Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to demagogue them for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012. Michelle’s cheap shots have lead her to create an ad campaign specifically | Read More »
Wendy Davis is NOT running the worst campaign ever.
Many wise persons here at Red State have suggested often that Wendy Davis is running the WORST CAMPAIGN EVER. And yes, it’s true, she’s doing an admirably good (bad?) job of it. From the wheelchair bicycle ad, to the now-last-minute act of desperation “hail Mary”: the all-out embrace of the increasingly unpopular Obama; Davis and her campaign staff are truly putting on a how-not-to-do-it clinic. | Read More »
Midterm Races in Wisconsin
Politically, Wisconsin is a difficult state to prognosticate. It contains some of the most liberal bastions in America alongside pockets of staunch conservatism. It is one of the birthplaces of the American progressive movement and 1960s radicalism while being a home to strong Tea Party sensibilities. It was the birthplace of Tommy Thompson’s welfare reforms which was the template for a national model. Overall, Democratic | Read More »

50 Years Later, The Message is Still The Same
Next week will be the 50th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s “Time for Choosing” speech which launched The Gipper on what would be a very successful political career that culminated with him as President. On that day Reagan outlined masterfully the clear path laid out ahead of us the price of appeasement with our enemies. Now here we are in 2014 with the Progressive Movement in | Read More »
The Capitol and White House are Racist Icons, Because Diversity
In the name of diversity, nobody is allowed to succeed, unless success is defined as diversity itself. A successful company doesn’t create value, it exists to foster diversity. Schools don’t exist to educate: they are there to model and teach diversity. Even architecture and art exist for the purpose of diversity.

Heritage Action Score Percentiles of Republican Senators, 2011-2014
Heritage Action for America provides a scorecard that helps us conservatives assess which Congresspersons in Washington are standing for our principles and values and to what extent. Redstate automatically tags Congresspersons with their Heritage Action Score (HAS) for the current session of Congress. I wanted to improve this data by including data from the prior session, as well. Additionally, I wanted to assess where each | Read More »
With interest rates remaining near zero and bond buying coming to an end, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen recently had the time to reflect on income inequality in America, citing the increase in the portion of accumulated wealth held by the top 5 % from 54% in 1989 to 63 % in 2013. This follows several months of adoring articles about French economist Thomas Piketty’s book, Capital in | Read More »

Midterm Races in Maine and Massachusetts
Maine has a Senate, gubernatorial and an open-seat congressional election this year. First, the easy one. Although she may not be the most popular Republican Senator among conservatives, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) 18% does have the “R” after her name. And she is apparently popular in Maine as evidenced by the fact she holds commanding leads in every poll taken, although there have been | Read More »
Houston, You’ve Got a Problem: It’s Called Islam and Your Lesbian Mayor Ignores the Reality that Lesbians Rank High on Islam’s Hit List
While Houston’s lesbian Mayor Annise Parker and her City Council pals subpoena and obsess over Christian ministers’ sermons, she ignores incomparable and immanent threats to Americans posed by Islamists in Houston. Houston’s First Amendment squabble is, as Texans say, “peanuts,” compared to actual ongoing violations of Article III Section 3. To put the enormity of Houston’s crisis into context, the nation’s fourth largest city is | Read More »
