Eight Years of RedState
July 11, 2004, was actually the first live day of RedState with the actual site kicking off July 12th with user content. We went live on Scoop without the logo. Within a few months, we had the logo as we wanted and by 2005 had RedHot and ConfirmThem up and going. By mid-2006, Clayton switched us over to Drupal with a new design and we | Read More »
Rick Scott Wins
Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have cried “uncle”. He is throwing in the towel on a legal challenge against Governor Rick Scott (R-FL). Governor Scott’s team down in Florida discovered a large number of people on the voter rolls who were not eligible to vote in Florida. They then discovered that more than a thousand of those people had actually voted in Florida elections. The | Read More »
Does the President Think The Government Got Him Where He Is Today?
It is a lie premised on Marxism. It really is. It is not hyperbole to say it. Prior to Marx, people did not clearly think of economics as class divided and did not think of the collective overriding the individual. Certainly the thinking was there sociologically, but not crystalized in economics. As Daniel Henninger noted in the Wall Street Journal recently, “There is no theory | Read More »
Happy Birthday RedState. Will You Join Gov. Rick Scott and Me in Florida?
Josh Trevino posted this on January 24, 2004, at his blog Tacitus. Seven months later RedState.com came online. We’ve come along way since 2004. In our fifth year, we started the RedState Gathering. I put up a post without even telling my bosses at Eagle Publishing what I was up to. I just knew some of us wanted to get together in person after five | Read More »

Meet Bainers, the New Birthers
First, let’s dispense with the bull shiitake mushrooms. Condi Rice is not the veep pick. She served President Bush for 8 years, has never been elected, and is pro-abortion. It’s not happening. Likewise, much of the fawning the left does over Rice has more to do with her carefully portrayed image as a spoiller to Rumsfeld and Cheney than to her actual, though admittedly impressive, | Read More »

The [Insert Squishy Veep Choice] Campaign Spin We Could Expect
What if Condi Rice were the pick? It won’t happen, but what if Condi Rice were the pick? Well, some of us have heard all the same old tired excuses from sell out Republican leaders for so long, we can tell you now exactly what Team Romney and the GOP would say. These may sound familiar to you as they are frequently used to justify | Read More »
Condi Rice for Veep? Bull Shiitake Mushrooms
If you head over to Drudge you will find that there are rumors swirling that Condi Rice is at the top of the short list to be the Vice Presidential nominee. I don’t know who is hitting the crack rock tonight in the rumor mill, but bull shiitake mushrooms. Condelizza Rice is pro-abortion. She worked for George Bush for eight years. In those eight years | Read More »
Stephanie Cutter: A Liar Or A Fool
Stephanie Cutter of the Barack Obama campaign claims that MItt Romney is either a liar or a felon. There’s just one problem. Stephanie Cutter appears to be the liar or a fool. This all stems from when Mitt Romney left Bain Capital. Guy Benson lays it out over at Townhall. In short, it has been well documented that while Mitt Romney had some interest in | Read More »
New Poll Has Ted Cruz Up. Conservatives Need to Pony Up Fast. [UPDATED]
A brand new poll has Ted Cruz ahead of David Dewhurst. The poll was conducted by Fred Wenzel. He also got the Indiana and Nebraska primaries right. Here’s the problem. The primary is three weeks away. Dewhurst has millions of dollars in advantage over Cruz. Conservatives need to pony up. Club For Growth stepped up with a new ad you can see below. It is | Read More »
Diane Black vs. Lou Ann Zelenik in Tennessee 6
A little birdie tells me that the Republicans in Washington see Diane Black in trouble and Diane Black’s own internal polling shows the same thing up in TN-06. This is terrific, terrific news. She’s a terrible congress critter. Her primary opponent is Lou Ann Zelenik and would be a far, far better member of Congress. As I’ve said before, if we cannot hold our own | Read More »
Weston Wamp and Scottie Mayfield
In the battle to pick off Chuck Fleischman in Tennessee, the other day I referenced Scottie Mayfield. I had forgotten that Weston Wamp was in there as well. Several people have made sure to oppo dump on Scottie Mayfield, but I find it irrelevant as I’m happy to spend 2014 defeating him too. The point is that Chuck Fleischman needs to be beaten. And Republicans | Read More »
Will Conservatives Be Paper Tigers After This Primary Season?
I look at Texas and see David Dewhurst pouring in money to beat Ted Cruz. A new poll is out and the race is very tight, but Dewhurst has a huge money advantage. Unfortunately, conservative organizations that have stood with Cruz are not pouring in the money he needs to be able to win. I look at North Carolina and see pretty much every Republican | Read More »
Jim Jordan Will Be At The RedState Gathering. Will You?
The leader of the conservatives in the United States House of Representatives, Jim Jordan (R-OH), is coming to the RedState Gathering. Congressman Jordan is the Chairman of the Republican Study Committee, which often fights the Republican Leadership from the right. It’s a tough job and he handles it well. Future Indiana Governor Mike Pence was once the RSC Chairman, along with Congressmen Jeb Hensarling and | Read More »

David Dewhurst’s Media Consultants Attack Ted Cruz and RedState *at* RedState
This is amazingly pathetic. David Dewhurst’s campaign gets his state government website altered to cover up his lying about his amnesty position. What happens? His media consultants invade RedState to accuse Ted Cruz of supporting Chicoms and attack RedState for supporting Cruz. In fact, this is not the first time Dewhurst’s media consultants have done this. Using the user name “Liberty Patriot,” Dewhurst’s consultants have | Read More »
David Dewhurst Campaign Alters Taxpayer Funded Website to Cover Up Past Support for Amnesty.
Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s Senate campaign might have just crossed a line it should not have crossed. Who else would be behind the Lt. Governor’s taxpayer funded website for his Lieutenant Governor’s Office suddenly deleting the transcript of a speech proving David Dewhurst has been lying about his position on illegal aliens? The speech is . . . well . . . it is | Read More »
Governor Bobby Jindal Will Be At The RedState Gathering. Will You?
That’s right, one of the most effective surrogates on the campaign trail in the primary for Rick Perry and now in the general for Mitt Romney, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will be at the RedState Gathering. Governor Jindal is in the news these days for opting not to expand Louisiana’s medicaid program for Obamacare. He’s also in the news as speculation grows over who Mitt | Read More »
