    Take a 4 minute break..watch this awesome campaign ad/bio for Ryan Zinke

    Ryan Zinke WILL be the next congressman from Montana. Zinke was the former commander of SEAL TEAM 6. If you’re tired of the incessant campaign attack ads, the lies and half-truths..treat yourself to a magnificent 4 minute biopic/ad about Zinke, and more importantly, what he believes in, and his vision for American. I only wish more Republican candidates would embrace these same ideals in their | Read More »

    Obama apologist Bill Burton ALMOST just stepped in it big time

    Well, Obama’s former SecDef  Leon Panetta has been all over the airwaves, tearing Barry a new one ( and also promoting his new book). Panetta’s appearance on O’Reilly last night was especially devastating. O’Reilly multiple times excoriated and eviscerated Obama, then turned to Panetta and asked if he agreed with him, at which time Panetta just smiled, even appearing to giggle a few times. So | Read More »

    On Reince Preibus’ PATHETIC appearance on Meet The Press

    Mr. Chairman, when will you ever learn? I happened to catch Reince Preibus’ appearance on MTP today, and it was well..gawd-awful. Note: As I post this, 6PM on Sunday, there is no video or transcript online as yet. I’ll post a link when I have a chance, but if anyone finds one first, please do so. Chuck Todd was his usual snarky self. Let me | Read More »

    Surprise, surprise: Elijah Cummings gives strong statement in support of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson

    Like most who watched yesterday’s House hearing about the Secret Service, I pretty much tuned out when Ranking member Elijah Cummings was bloviating, er..delivering his lengthy opening statement. However, amid his ramblings, Cummings surprisingly delivered a stirring defense of Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo. police office who shot and killed Michael Brown. Here’s the video: The relevant segment is from 15:00-16:30 http://www.c-span.org/video/?321679-1/oversight-hearing-white-house-security&start=505 Here’s the money | Read More »

    Is it time for Mississippi conservatives to teach the GOPe a lesson and vote for Travis Childers?

    First, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: It is the stated position of Erick and the mods that Red State advocates voting for the most conservative candidate in the primaries, and the Republican in the general election. I agree with that, and it is not my intent here to troll or disrupt.  Anyone who has read my earlier diaries knows that. However, if | Read More »

    How Kamala Harris will replace Ruth Ginsburg on SCOTUS, after a brief detour as the new Attorney General

    Last week, when the reports of Holder’s resignation broke, I heard the esteemed Jay Sekulow on the radio discussing the news. Before proceeding to shred Holder’s record at Justice, he spent a few minutes wondering aloud “why, now?” Sekulow, like myself, thinks there’s a master plan, a grand design behind the timing of the resignation.  I fear he’s correct. Harry Reid went nuclear last year | Read More »

    Is there ANY reason why a GOP controlled Senate should restore the 60 vote “requirement” for confirmation?

    Shortly before the GOP is likely to regain control of the Senate, we can expect to see Obama name a replacement for AG Holder, who will then be confirmed by the lame duck Senate under the new rules that Harry Reid  rammed through late last year. To quickly summarize, the ability to filibuster executive and judicial nominations (except for SCOTUS)   by requiring 60 votes | Read More »

    I suppose we should be grateful that Obama didn’t invoke Michael Sam at the UN.

    Yesterday, during his speech at the UN General Assembly, Obama continued his tradition of knocking America at every opportunity, holding the recent events in Ferguson up to the world as a shining example of, “nope, we ain’t perfect, but we’re trying.” Not surprisingly, it’s the one line in an otherwise totally blah speech that got any attention. But we shouldn’t be surprised, it’s what Obama | Read More »

    Whoa!! Ezekiel Emanuel has just euthanized ALL the 2016 Democrat presidential candidates

    A short while back I posted a somewhat tongue-in-cheek diary: “The AVERAGE age of Democrat presidential candidates is (GASP) 70!!!” http://www.redstate.com/diary/gawken/2014/09/13/average-age-democrat-presidential-candidates-gasp-70/ But is seems that the architect of Obamacare, Ezekiel Emanuel, has just decided to wipe out all the Democrats running for the White House. According to ole Zeke, 75 is the perfect age to commence pushing up daisies: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/09/22/obamacare_architect_ezekiel_emanuel_75_an_ideal_age_to_die.html We know that liberals tend | Read More »

    Hillary had better hope her campaign fares better, and lasts longer, than “Madame Secretary.”

    Imagine if a junior high school creative writing class were asked to emulate “The West Wing,” and produce a script about life , sex, and politics inside the Beltway.  “Madame Secretary,” which premiered last night (twice) is actually far worse than that. The show is obviously intended to be a prime time free political advertisement for Hillary’s upcoming White House run. With friends like these | Read More »
