    Missing the Trumpgate Follies #RSG15

    I am attending my second annual RedState Gathering, this one here in Atlanta, which is good for me because it’s close to home and I can drive there.  An unfortunate result of being close to home, but not close enough to drive home every night, is that I need to be home Saturday evening to resume my regularly scheduled activities.  This means missing the big | Read More »

    Shame and Stupidity on Campus

    Shame and Stupidity on Campus

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about the origin of the phrase “live free or die,” which arose from the fierce independence and populist spirit of John Stark, New Hampshire’s hero of the American Revolutionary War.  Now the soil in Stark Cemetery, beneath the memorial dedicated to the man who wrote the state’s motto, is churning because the grave’s occupant is rapidly spinning. What’s making | Read More »

    No Click-Bait, Please!

    No Click-Bait, Please!

    According to website analytics tracker Alexa, RedState.com is in the top 5,000 highly trafficked sites in America, albeit toward the bottom of that list.  The media kit shows 700,000 unique monthly visitors and 3.5 million views although that might be dated information.  By contrast, Salon is number 322, Slate is 178, and HuffPo is number 30. By those statistics, you’d think that liberals own the blogosphere–and | Read More »

    Big Game Hunting, Lawfare Edition: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

    Big Game Hunting, Lawfare Edition: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

    On Monday, two felony charges will be unsealed against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, and the liberal media will feast on his humiliation and booking in another episode of Big Game Hunting: Lawfare Edition. After the indictments are unsealed, Paxton can surrender to be photographed, fingerprinted and booked at any of the state’s 254 county jails. Kent Schaffer, one of the special prosecutors, has previously told News 8 | Read More »

    Judge: ‘Efforts to extend legal rights to chimpanzees are thus understandable’

    Judge: 'Efforts to extend legal rights to chimpanzees are thus understandable'

    I am not making this up.  A New York judge dismissed a lawsuit by the Nonhuman Rights Project to grant personhood to two chimpanzees, named Hercules and Leo. This isn’t the first attempt to grant “human” status to chimps: last year a judge threw out a similar request for a chimp named Tommy.  But the worst part isn’t the fact that self-hating humans keep trying to | Read More »

    I Am a One Issue Voter

    I Am a One Issue Voter

    I have become a one issue voter.  It’s not because I don’t care about the federal deficit, or the crushing weight of student loan debt, or Iran obtaining nuclear weapons.  Those things matter.  But they matter less than our government actively participating in the abhorrent and evil trade of dead baby flesh. Priorities are easy to set when one has a consistent world view, and | Read More »

    BREAKING: PP video producers release new video, 'it's a boy!'

    Here’s video number four [Content warning: some of thijs is pretty gruesome]: This one hits Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains affiliates, with investigators posing as buyers looking for “intact specimens.”  They spoke with PPRM’s Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde. “We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush” fetal organs during 2nd | Read More »

    #PPSellsBabyParts: Why Is Selling Human Organs Illegal Anyway?

    If I kill an endangered lion in Africa and bring its head and skin home to be stuffed, I will be fined anywhere between $500 and $10,500, depending on how many times I’m caught doing it—not to mention calls for my soul to be fed to Cthulhu after my body is slow roasted on a spit.  But if I sell my own plasma or sperm, | Read More »

    Harry Reid channels Strom Thurmond: Senate to Vote on #DefundPlannedParenthood

    Harry Reid channels Strom Thurmond: Senate to Vote on #DefundPlannedParenthood

    The Senate is going to vote on a “right wing crazy deal” (as Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 14% calls it) before the August recess.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% supplied the bluster, but Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) 63% along with a core group of senators pushed through a deal that will allow a floor vote on | Read More »

    140 House Members are Ready to #DefundPlannedParenthood

    140 House Members are Ready to #DefundPlannedParenthood

    140 House members are on board to defund Planned Parenthood.  That means only 78 more are needed to pass a bill before the August recess. This is the best opportunity the House has to deal with the issue while public outrage is at its peak, and before the forces of darkness at the command of the death merchants can be marshaled to squelch this rebellion | Read More »
