All Good Things . . .

      The cat is now completely out of the bag, so I might as well fess up. I am leaving at the end of this year. June 3rd was my 40th birthday and also my 10th year on the payroll as Editor-in-Chief of RedState. I emailed the corporate overlords that day and told them it was time to start planning a transition. Frankly, I wanted to | Read More »

      NY Times On How Mass Shooters Got Firearms Exposes Gun Grabber Reform Myths

      The NY Times over the weekend, ran this ominous article, detailing how fourteen mass shooters were able to get the weapons they used to commit their crimes. The piece shows photos of the weapons used, a brief description of what happened and a timeline of events. The lead paragraph is somewhat misleading: Criminal histories and documented mental health problems did not prevent at least eight | Read More »

      Hillary Will Grab your Guns, With or Without Congress’ Help

      Hillary Clinton is terrible at being a politician. Back in 2008, Barack Obama realized that he needed to avoid alienating blue collar rust belt workers in order to win the general election, and he knew that many of them were concerned about his well earned reputation as a gun grabber. Rather than risk alienating his voting base by trying to sound like he wasn’t opposed | Read More »

      The Rentboy arrests and the right to be special

      On August 21, law enforcement raided the headquarters of an online site called Rentboy.com. Federal agents raided the Manhattan headquarters of Rentboy.com as part of a state prostitution investigation Tuesday, authorities said. Seven people, including CEO Jeffrey Hurant, were arrested as part of the raid at the Rentboy.com offices on 14th Street and Fifth Avenue. Department of Homeland Security agents and members of the NYPD, | Read More »

      Congressional Reform Goes Beyond Electing the Right Speaker

      Momentarily, let’s talk principles instead of specific people. Throughout Congressional history, there appear to be ongoing periods of greater and greater centralization of power in the Speaker of the House. Eventually, it becomes too destructive and someone or some people step up to decentralize the power.   There is an absolutely amazing array of talent and intelligence in Congress, but somehow, far too many on | Read More »

      Empress Hillary Would Close Down Congress (VIDEO)

      Hillary Clinton gave an interview to the Today Show today during a town hall in New Hampshire in which she touched on, among other things, the email controversy. Clearly, Hillary believes that McCarthy’s offhand comment has given her free reign to go on the offensive about the email controversy, because she unleashed what can only be fairly described as an unhinged rant about the entire | Read More »

      Matt Bevin for Governor

      I backed Matt Bevin in his Senate race. He is a profoundly good guy. But when he ran for Governor, my impression of the race was that the state was ready to move on. And I did not back him. I should have. The top two candidates began beating the crap out of each other in a nasty, nasty way and Matt just showed the | Read More »

      This Still Bugs Me — How Obama Treats Muslims vs. Christians

      If the shooter in Oregon had been a muslim, you know damn well the President of the United States would have rushed to the television to tell us all that we cannot judge a religion by one person. If the victims had all been muslims, you know too that President Obama would have rushed to the televisions of America to tell us all that we | Read More »

      Iran warning: US facilities are within missile range

      Over the weekend the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards missile force issued what can only be interpreted as a threat. This is from the official Iranian news agency: Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said all US military bases in the Middle East are within the range of the IRGC’s missiles, but the country still sees | Read More »

      Remember When Hillary Clinton was Sorry about those Emails?

      After months and months of insisting (comically) that she did nothing wrong by sending classified and highly sensitive information over her own private email server, Hillary Clinton emerged less than a month ago wearing her best Bob the Tomato outfit and apologized to NBC News, taking “full responsibility” for the email fiasco and admitting it was a mistake. Democratic presdiential front-runner Hillary Clinton offered her | Read More »

      Welcome, Leon

      The post title is somewhat facetious. Leon has been here for a number of years now. I remember when people on the front page started agitating for him to be on the front page. There was no way on earth I was going to allow him on the front page with a user name like “LeonMachoNacho”. Apparently, he really likes nachos. But I finally relented | Read More »

      Hillary Clinton’s Painfully Unfunny SNL Appearance (VIDEO)

      Saturday Night Live has been busy hyping the appearance of Hillary Clinton on SNL like crazy this last week. It’s no surprise that SNL is a mostly-partisan in-kind contribution to the DNC and its candidates, although they have lampooned some Democrats to success in the past. Hillary Clinton’s appearance, however, did her absolutely no favors. She very obviously was fixating on cue cards which gave | Read More »

      Barack Obama’s Rhetoric and the Rise of the Rampage Killing

      “The rate of mass murder rampages in this country has gone up with Barack Obama in office. People are, in fact, bringing guns to fights…” There has been an increase in rampages in the United States since Barack Obama took office. He wants to blame guns, blame Republicans, and blame the NRA. But those groups were on the national scene before Barack Obama took office. | Read More »

      Keep the Stigma on Abortion

      Last month, the spectacularly loathsome Lindy West created the #ShoutYourAbortion hashtag. It’s exactly as it appears to be; the vocalization – and actual celebration – of a woman’s abortion experience. Suddenly the decision to medically end a growing life, created in private, should be splashed across social media! After all, it’s 2015. Let’s end the stigma of abortion! Pardon me, but we must keep this | Read More »
