Could Democrats and Independents actually pick the GOP nominee for President?
The Republican field of candidates for the White House is both wide and deep, a baker’s dozen, and happily dominated by conservatives to a large extent. For the first time since 1980, we are on the cusp of picking a candidate with solid conservative credentials. It is also more than possible that Democrats and independents will play a key, if not decisive role in picking | Read More »
Why is Bob Menendez smiling today? Hint: What did I do different from Hillary?
It’s been a rough few weeks for NJ Democrat Senator Bob Menendez. After days of leaks about an impending indictment, Eric Holder’s Justice Department (after a long and lengthy investigation), finally dropped the hammer on ole Bob, accusing him of multiple counts of corruption, influence peddling, etc. Menendez was forced to step aside as ranking member on the Foreign Relations committee, while speculation runs that | Read More »
Hillary’s announcement video…. LGBT couples: TWO; Churches: ZERO
One odd thing about Hillary’s official announcement video (well, lots of things, actually, but this one was jarring in a way): it gave a shout out to every Democrat special interest group. Blacks, Latinos, single moms. It featured a gay couple and a lesbian couple..I suspect there were bisexual and transgendered persons in there, but how could we possibly tell? Somehow they resisted they impulse | Read More »
Anyone know if Thad Cochran is still alive, or at the very least, “compos mentis?”
Where, oh where, is the senior senator from the Magnolia state? Red Staters are well aware of the criminal farce that was the 2014 Mississippi Republican primary election. Haley Barbour and the rest of the GOPe dragged Cochran out of his bathrobe and slippers, wiped the drool from his chin, stocked the van with Depends, got him to run again, and then used the vilest | Read More »
Is a bad white cop automatically a racist?
99.9% of the stories about the South Carolina cop accused of murder begin with some variant of this sentence: White South Carolina ( or southern) cop shoots unarmed black man in the back, killing him. The officer in question has been fired, and will stand trial for murder. The process will unfold, the system will work. So then, is the MSM conducting its own version | Read More »
Why don’t Senate Republicans deem the Iranian “agreement” a treaty, and move directly to a ratification vote?
Disclaimer: Whenever I have chosen to diary at Red State, I believe I am well-versed in the subject material. In this case, I’m not that sure..I do not profess to be a Constitutional scholar….but it appears that neither is the Congress. One of the major issues confronting our nation is the ever-increasing power of the Executive branch, and the apparent willingness of successive Congresses to | Read More »
Hey Christie!!!! you’re at least 6 weeks short…(watch this video of a 14 week fetus clapping hands)
Well, Chris Christie says he is proudly “pro-life”..as long as that life has been around longer than 20 weeks. Prior to that, the fetus, is..well…dependent on the kindness and morality of others..but absent any protection of law. So, watch this amazing video of a 14 week ultrasound, as the baby enthusiastically celebrates his upcoming birth with his happy parents: And maybe email it to | Read More »
The stupidity of petulance: Obama’s outing of Israel’s nuclear program actually proves that pending deal with Iran will fail
The latest example of Obama’s hostility to Israel, and loathing of Netanyahu, came to light last week when the DoD declassified a formerly top-secret 1987 report that laid bare Israel’s nuclear program. Joe Cunningham covered the details here at RS: What has not been discussed is how the release of the report validates the claims that Obama’s imminent surrender deal with Iran is actually doomed to | Read More »
It is time for a constitutional amendment to limit a president to one (1) four year elected term
The framers intended our system of government to have three separate, but equal branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. In the last 75 years, the federal government ( the executive) has greatly expanded in both size and scope, and now intrudes daily into the life of every American. In addition we have seen how an out-of control president can willfully ignore, if not flout, the Constitutional | Read More »
