    If “feeling” and “fact” disagree, flush the fact

    A great deal of the media message addressing Ferguson seems to support the idea that the rioting and violence of protestors is understandable and should be tolerated.  This message is just one result of 50 years of subordinating thought and reason to “feelings,” and asserting that all “feelings” are created equal. The thugs that looted and burned Ferguson were ostensibly troubled by the grand jury | Read More »

    Another Reason for Obama’s Immigration Amnesty

    While I believe increasing the number of Democrat voters was his prime motivation, I also think raising Obamacare numbers played a part in this action. Of course, that makes the amnesty even more cynical and deplorable.

    Schumer: Stimulus “Was a Mistake,” ObamaCare Addressed “Wrong Problem”; But Still Doesn’t Get It

    Yesterday, liberal Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer lambasted Democrats for the political failure of both ObamaCare and the stimulus.

    While he certainly has not changed his core belief that government can solve all the people’s ills (and said as much), he slammed his party for its political failures.

    Should Churches Be Subsidized For Preaching Politically Correct Propaganda?

    In compliance with the state mandate to curb storm water run off, the Prince George’s County Department of the Environment is considering a proposal that would waive the unpopular impervious surface property tax assessment for their properties if churches agree to preach environmentally friendly sermons or engage in other forms of mental conditioning. What’s the big deal, some will ask. After all, does the Bible | Read More »

    Senator Charles Schumer’s Seller’s Remorse

    Normally politicians only express remorse when they’re either leaving office after a bruising election defeat, are on their way to the federal pen, on their deathbeds or have penned a memoir where a little mea culpa might hopefully elicit a fonder place in historic annals, not to mention more copies sold and $$$. Enter (D-NY) and third ranking member of the Senate Democratic Leadership. Speaking | Read More »

    The Amazing Invisible Police Brutality

    Michael Brown was gunned down in cold blood, they say. Officer Darren Wilson shot the unarmed gentle giant multiple times even as he was trying to surrender. Brown was a victim of rampant police violence caused by endemic racism, and only a racist would say otherwise. The grand jury was given the evidence, listened to hours and hours of testimony, reviewed forensics reports, and concluded…. | Read More »

    Escape from Leftism

    Living in California I can’t help but feel that I exist as anomaly. Being 22 and a staunch conservative on pretty much every issue I feel out of place. Even in the small town area of the Antelope Valley where I reside there seems to be a prevailing theme of big government and social progressivism/leftism. I can take solace though in the fact conservatives across | Read More »

    Australia Embraces the Less Government-Free Trade Model – We Should Too

    We recently referenced the very good news to come from an otherwise very bad President Barack Obama China trip. U.S., China to Drop Tariffs on Range of Tech Products The U.S. and China reached an agreement to drop tariffs on a wide range of technology products, in a deal that its backers say could cover $1 trillion in trade and that marks a significant accomplishment | Read More »

    Failure in Ferguson Rooted In “God Damn America”

    In Ferguson, we see the fruits of Obama’s failure: violence, distrust, subversion of the legal system. This will never be healed as long as our president holds to the doctrine of “God damn America”.

    The Making of a Dictator

    Dictators do not spring up on their own accord.  No human being possesses the power to subdue an entire nation through their own devices.  The rise of a dictator has three primary ingredients. First, an individual emerges who has the perfect mix of ambition, charisma, and cunning.  Richard Nixon had the ambition of a dictator but not the charisma.  Ronald Reagan had charisma, but did | Read More »

    Pastor Badgers Congregation To Boycott C.S. Lewis

    In a series of sermons against C.S. Lewis posted at SermonAudio.com, Pastor Jason Cooley creates the impression that it is wrong to read that particular author’s works because of areas in which the famed scholar’s theology was deficient by the standard of Biblical orthodoxy. So why is it not wrong for the pastor to have either read these works or to have familiarized himself with | Read More »

    BREAKING: No Indictment in Ferguson

    Giving Back Can Be Fun

    This is that time of year when we reflect on what we’ve got, give thanks, and look for ways to give back to our communities.

Maybe it’s making the cornbread stuffing for Thanksgiving dinner (that’s my job), or committing to an Ironman to raise money for | Read More »

    Chuck gets chucked — and that’s a good thing — for Chuck

    Remember almost two years ago when former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee for confirmation hearings to become the next Secretary of Defense.  Some of us cringed as we watched and listened to the hapless, but likable Hagel state that he would not be making policy.  How prescient were his words now that the White House has howitzered his derriere | Read More »

    Media Amnesty Polling – Fabricating the Herd Mentality

    One of the ways proponents of open borders attempt to sway opinion on amnesty is by devising and conducting cleverly worded ‘push poll’ questions. Garbage in – Garbage out. And the expected outcome is contrived groupthink.

    HRC Founder's Former Lover Also Arrested

    Yeah, this.  Same love and all. Especially when a 66-year old is paying a 25-year old to be his “lover”, taking him on lavish trips, and introducing him to the rainbow-warrior in chief, President Obama. Terrance Bean, founder of the irreconcilably-named Human Rights Campaign, and Obama bundler, is facing several felony counts of sodomy and sex abuse from his alleged sexual encounter with a 15-year | Read More »

    Marita Noon: Dear Northeast, How’s that solar working out for ya?

    The lessons for America’s energy supply learned from the Northeast’s far-reaching experiment, that has only resulted only in price increases and potential energy shortages, are twofold. First, don’t shut down existing supply until the replacement is ready, as legal action and local attitudes can slow its development. Second, you can cover every square inch of available land with wind and solar, but when extreme weather hits, it requires a reliable energy supply, best met by coal and nuclear.

    What the elections tell us about state governments and their constituents

    What the elections tell us about state governments and their constituents

    President Obama said in his post-election press conference, “I hear you,” referring to the results of the Nov. 4 Republican sweep. But what the president might be missing is the rising tide of limited government ideas that are taking hold of the country. Up for election on Nov. 4 were 82 percent of the country’s state legislators, and the results flipped 11 chambers in favor | Read More »

    Remember When an Imperial Presidency was a Bad Thing?

    Travel with me, dear reader, back in time to the years of the Presidency of one George W. Bush. For Common Core graduates, that’s 2001-2009. Take a look at the media from that time. You find headlines describing Mr. Bush as an “imperial president” quite frequently, in both major newspapers and various online forums, such as TruthOut and Socyberty. There were even at least two | Read More »

    Will the Constitution Survive King Barack the Transformer?

    What makes a tyrant? Dictionary.com defines tyrant thus: A sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly. In 1776 the 13 American colonies declared independence from just such a tyrant. Eleven years later the same 13 states came together to write a Constitution that was specifically crafted to thwart the emergence of a new tyrant. The laws were to be written in Congress, | Read More »

    The Proper Executive Order

    The Proper Executive Order

    Early in our republic, it was considered crass and imperial for a president to issue too many executive orders.  Remember, our political experiment was the first in the world to unite a federal system of states with a central government elected by popular vote—even the title that George Washington would assume was a matter of intense study and debate.  Finally they settled on the unassuming “Mr. | Read More »

    How Many Lies Have Democrats Told To Sabotage The War on Terror?

    Start with Obama’s claim that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) is not Islamic. Say what? In fact, the so-called war on terror is clearly a war that Islamic jihadists have declared on us. Yet Obama is so hostile to this war that even the subterfuge “war on terror” was too much for him and he purged it from official government statements | Read More »

    Iran’s Nukes – Israel Reconsiders The Use of Force

    Last Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a resolution denouncing the Iranian government for its horrendous human rights violations. But, there is disagreement over whether peripheral issues, such as human rights violations and Iran’s support of terrorism should be included in the pending nuclear deal or not. Some maintain that the inclusion of these additional issues will make it more difficult to get Iran to agree | Read More »

    There are those who say you shouldn’t speak ill of the dead and if you don’t have anything good to say to say nothing. That is not the RedState way. Former DC Mayor Marion Barry has died. The best possible legacy for the man is to forget him as soon as possible. Barry burst upon the scene a classic race baiter in the tradition of | Read More »

    My simple idea for immigration reform

    I believe the following idea would work both as a political solution as well as a policy solution:   The democrats believe we should be more compassionate towards illegal immigrants and allow them to stay here, and republicans believe too many people, both citizens and non-citizens, are dependent on the welfare state in this country.  Why can’t these two different beliefs be combined when it comes | Read More »

    Britain Hasn’t Been Invaded Since 1066, Until Now, Its Response: Same as in 1935

    As an American Anglophile who lived in London in 1995 and in Edinburgh ten years later, I was greatly dismayed to witness how much the U.K. has changed for the worse during my recent trip to London shortly after Remembrance Day. The highlight of my trip was to see the 888, 246 poppies and pay tribute to those who died in Afghanistan and Iraq, whose | Read More »

    Ben Carson is getting really, REALLY bad advice

    I adore Ben Carson. He is a good and decent man; honorable and truthful.  He is, by all accounts, very close to deciding to run for the White House in 2016. And he is getting very, very bad advice. Dr. Carson was a guest panelist  today on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.”  Stephanopoulos is a notorious Clinton sycophant. He will do everything he can | Read More »

    If there’s a family that embodies all that the anti-God, do-as-you-please (as long as they agree with it), so-called liberals (Brent Bozell calls them “libertines”, but that word doesn’t really describe the freakier-than-thou attitude they exhibit), it’s the Duggars.  Here’s a family that really does do as they please, and violates just about every single American cultural norm.  They are as off-the-trail as any family since | Read More »

    Mark Kirk: Rand Paul And Ted Cruz Running For President Would Hurt IL GOP

    In an interview with The Hill Illinois Republican said that possible presidential runs by Kentucky and Texas would hurt the Illinois Republican Party. “We definitely have our isolationist wing, which I completely disagree with,” he said, pointing to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), before promising to back a GOP candidate in the presidential primary that he thought would do well in Illinois. He criticized Sen. Ted | Read More »

    More Fuzzy Math: Admin Included Dental Plans to Boost Obamacare Numbers — But Didn’t Tell Anyone

    On the heels of the Gruber scandal, more misinformation has been admitted in regard to Obamacare. Bloomberg has reported that “the Obama administration said it erroneously calculated the number of people with health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, incorrectly adding 380,000 dental subscribers to raise the total above 7 million.” When pressed about it this week, Health and Human Services clarified the total number | Read More »

    This Means War

    Barack Obama used to teach constitutional law at the law school in which I am presently enrolled.  He was by all accounts well-liked by his students, though perhaps somewhat aloof to his then-fellow faculty members.  I currently have class three days a week in then-Professor Obama’s old favorite classroom, Room V, and each time I enter I see a photo near the door commemorating his | Read More »

    Ignorance and Misunderstanding in the Age of Obama’s Amnesty

    Many of us on the Right are erroneously making assumptions about the recently announced Obama amnesty that are not rooted in reality.  Namely, people believe that this action automatically delivers up to 5 million people onto the Democratic column come election time.  Some have made the case- probably mostly correct- that although this is phrased as a deportation deferment program, once a new President is | Read More »

    2016 – An Outsider’s Handicapping

    Mitt Romney, John Kasich or Chris Christie, if any of them run, will most likely receive the nomination in 2016.  This is based on an analysis of nominations over the past 60 years and the way the Republican party functions.  How I wish I were wrong. Presidential elections are similar to long-standing rivalries in sports.  When the Super Bowl started in 1967, over a period | Read More »

    Call Obama’s Bluff And Fix The Immigration Problem

    The President has brazenly abused his power in attempting to legalize lawbreaking, and seeks to excuse his lawlessness based on the GOP’s refusal to enact the kind of reckless solution to the problem of illegal immigration that Democrats have been pushing for years. We should certainly be pushing to defund this effort, but another element of our counter-attack should be to call his bluff and | Read More »

    Boycott the State of the Union: An Absence of Followers is an Absence of Leadership

Remember everything that was said last year: “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation, or plans, or any logical idea of what will actually | Read More »

    November 20, 2014 – The day the Constitution died

As a result of Obama’s Hitleresque Executive Order giving millions of Democrat voters—a.k.a. illegal immigrants—a free ride to citizenship via his promise not to prosecute them for breaking the law, the Constitution was essentially shot and killed today. And nobody tried to save her. Yeah, we were gullible enough to actually believe Republicans meant it when | Read More »

    Obama and the Democrat Autocracy perpetuating political power

    Obama is using his national pulpit to usurp the power of another branch of government. It must be repeated – he has violated, with arrogance, the very law he has sworn to uphold and defend! The historical reality is that it exists within the DNA of the Party that he represents. Yet, this all may seem obvious to the perceptive observer regarding the current Democrat Party. The real question that remains to be answered is whether the GOP shares the same political DNA. Now is the time to draw the line on those who disregard the law of the land! Now is the time to defend the Constitution!

    Sheldon Adelson’s misguided gambit on online gambling and its offshoots

    Obama Administration Grubered Americans on ObamaCare Enrollment

    The lesson we learn from Jonathan Gruber (the MIT professor turned high-paid ObamaCare architect who admitted the Administration deceived the public to pass ObamaCare) is that the Obama Administration will do or say anything to prop up ObamaCare.

    You know the litany of lies (you can keep you plan, no abortion funding, not a tax, etc.), but now we have a brand new deception: ObamaCare’s enrollment numbers.

    Democratic answer to illegal immigration – crush the economic incentive to come here

    During the president’s amnesty announcement on Thursday night, he said this – “Overall, the number of people trying to cross the border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970’s. Those are the facts.” Obama is exclusively addressing the low-information class, and possibly those for whom English is a 2nd language (he made his announcement during Univision’s telecast of the Latin Grammy’s with the | Read More »
