The 911 Call and 80+ Members of Congress
As most of you know, my family was swatted on May 27, 2012. The police, at the time, told me they were responding to a 911 call about an accidental shooting. I now have the 911 call. It turns out that the call was not about an accidental shooting. The caller said I had shot my wife, she was dead on the floor in front | Read More »

A Nobody With No Audience Gets Noticed by Mitch McConnell
Yesterday on Laura Ingraham’s radio show, she asked Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell about a recent Roll Call article that framed me as one of the loud leaders of conservatives opposed to Mitch McConnell. The Senator from Kentucky responded that he had never heard of me and I did not have an audience. That sounds a bit like the child, when asked if he ate | Read More »

Good Question by Mayhem
RedState User Mayhem asks a good question: Sometimes I find it frustrating that you refrain from telling us *why* you don’t support certain candidates. At times, you just completely ignore covering entire states because no one seems to excite you there (last year you said hardly anything about Rob Portman in Ohio, but, as I recall, you never really gave us a reason for why | Read More »
Erickson in for Hannity in Atlanta
From 4pm to 8pm ET tonight, I’ll be on WSB Radio out of Atlanta, including filling in for Hannity’s spot tonight while he’s out.

It is a call in show, after all. You can | Read More »
See, We Told You So
Back in 1994, Rush Limbaugh wrote See I Told You So. From page 88 of the book: [T]he cure for: a) the budget deficit = more taxes; b) unemployment = more taxes; c) recession = more taxes; d) environmental problems = more taxes; e) illiteracy = more taxes; f) L.A. riots = more taxes. It doesn’t matter what the nature of the problem is. This | Read More »
It’s A Judgment Issue, But I’m Not Personally Offended
There is a story out this morning that Sarah Palin’s top aide Rebecca Mansour sent out a series of nasty direct messages on Twitter about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Mitt Romney supporters, others, and me. The Daily Caller has the details. Regarding me, Jonathan Strong reported: RedState.com founder and CNN contributor Erick Erickson is “a total douchebag,” wrote Palin speechwriter and domestic policy adviser Rebecca Mansour | Read More »
Unfortunately, I’ve just been informed that Donald Trump needs to reschedule our one on one interview. Those of you who have registered already will get a note when the rescheduled interview takes place. Sorry about that. And my plane ticket isn’t refundable. Oh well.
Why Yes, I Am Interviewing Donald Trump
He’s a blunt new voice that’s hitting our conservative establishment with the force of a wrecking ball. The guy fascinates all of us, but let’s face it: he also raises a lot of questions. I’ll ask Donald Trump those questions, 1-on-1, live, for a solid hour. Is this all just posturing? Is he running — or not? Let’s get answers. Who’s the real guy behind | Read More »
Erickson & Trump. One on One.
Yes, it is true. On Tuesday, I will be going one on one with Donald Trump in his office in New York. He has agreed to sit down and have an unfiltered conversation with no topic off limits. Thus I will ask him those questions many of you have wanted to ask him and flesh out why he thinks he is a conservative, why he | Read More »
Lawrence O’Donnell Is Biblically Ignorant and Barack Obama Comes Out In Favor of HIGHER Gas Prices #EERS
Lawrence O’Donnell today decided to lecture Rush Limbaugh about Jesus Christ and hellishly falls on his face. Barack Obama came out in favor of higher gas prices today and his press secretary got all defensive over whether or not Obama is a Christian. We’ll discuss all this and more tonight on the Erick Erickson Show on WSB starting at 7:05 p.m. ET. You can listen | Read More »

Greg Sargent Encourages Unions To Commit Violence Then Demands We Look At His Record on Palin and Arizona
UPDATE: Sargent just took to Twitter and called my quoting him directly “comical lies.” That seems to be a rather damning indictment of Greg Sargent about his own writing. ——————— Greg Sargent is whining at the Washington Post, not that I pointed out his calls for union violence in Wisconsin, but that at the very end, after all was said and done, I besmirched his | Read More »
Thor’s Hammer + Releasing the Kraken
I have been moving this week and the site has descended into chaos in the comments. There are multiple petitions by many of you, the diarists, readers, and commenters of this site, to disband the recommended diaries list because it is being gamed by a number of diarists at the expense of new and, frankly, quality non-conspiratorial material. Being Scandinavian, let me introduce you to | Read More »

Flattered by the Attacks
Shortly after Keith Olbermann announced he was leaving MSNBC, I had to laugh on twitter about it. That, naturally, brought out the hate. In the past seventy-two hours I’ve been told to get AIDS and die, die in a fire, f*** off, choke on a d**k, burn in hell, and the like. Not content to just hurl insults, shortly after RedState’s annual post on the | Read More »
