None Dare Call it Islam
By now the refrain is familiar. A violent man, usually in his 20s, is motivated by his belief system to commit murder in such a way as to deliberately inspire fear and terror in a certain segment of the population – frequently institutions that symbolize Western liberalism and/or Jewish culture. The media, reporting on the violence, curiously refuses to mention his religious affiliation – or | Read More »

Understanding ISIS; understanding Islam
There is an indispensable piece in The Atlantic titled What ISIS Really Wants. Barack Obama would do well to have read it before he starts playing Islamic Pope on the internet and holding forth on what is and what is not actually Islam. It starts with a question that apparently no one in our National Security apparatus has bothered to ask: What is the Islamic | Read More »

Homeland Security shutdown looms as McConnell’s leadership fails
Last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell showed us he is not the man to lead any Senate majority that is opposed by obstructionist Democrats. In short, is a great majority leader if you are on a level, paved road on a pleasant June day. For anything more challenging you need someone with a pair. The U.S. Senate Majority leader, Republican Mitch McConnell, said on Tuesday that | Read More »
Where are the riots over the Islamic State?
Again and again we are told that when Islam or its prophet Mahomet are treated unfairly or insulted, the streets in the Islamic world will erupt in rioting. They rioted in Benghazi over Danish cartoons published in a newspaper. They allegedly rioted over a Youtube video exposing Islam’s history. And yes, they rioted over Charlie Hebdo. So where are the riots against the Islamic State? | Read More »
Iran punks Barack Obama
While Washington if focused on the dishonest and sophomoric attempt by Barack Obama to evade any responsibility for, or take any action to remediate the dog’s breakfast he’s created in the Middle East, it is becoming obvious that Obama is leaving his successor a time bomb. A time bomb that will result in a major war in the Middle East. At the center of this | Read More »
Regarded as Sheep to be Slaughtered
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 | Read More »
Did .@EricBoehlert go to college?
Eric Boehlert is a partisan hack at the shamelessly partisan but amazingly tax-exempt Media Matters for America. Boehlert is basically the butt-remora with a room temperature IQ that you find on the leftward fringe of Democrat politics. Back in 2008, he (I am not making this up) predicted the demise of FoxNews and ” watching CNN capture the campaign ratings crown.” He called US Navy SEALs | Read More »
Killer idenfied in the random violence in #Copenhagen that happened randomly
The man responsible for killing two people in Copenhagen has been identified by Danish media. Wait for it. Omar El-Hussein (no word if he’s related to our president). Via AFP: The man suspected of killing two people in shootings in Copenhagen was identified in several Danish media outlets on Sunday as Omar El-Hussein. Ekstra-Bladet, a Danish tabloid, reported that the 22-year-old was released from jail | Read More »

OMG! That Pope guy is secretly a Catholic
Last month I noted the surprise that rumbled through MSNBC when Pope Francis, in an homily in the Philippines, declared that homosexual marriage was a danger to the institution of marriage and to families: At a rally for families in the country’s capital of Manila, the popular pontiff spoke of an “ideological colonization that we have to be careful about that is trying to destroy | Read More »

Features, Bugs, and Illegal Aliens Registered To Vote
So let’s say you’re an elected official and the people who put you in office keep demanding you do things you don’t buy into and prevent you from doing all the fun stuff you ran for office to accomplish? It’s a bummer giving the people a say in how things get run. It particularly rankles when you can look at all the degrees and certificates | Read More »

Upgrading Privacy Laws For The Digital Age
When Congress passed the Electronic Communications Privacy Act in 1986, the Internet was still in its infancy. Google was just an absurdly big number most people had never heard of. And Apple’s Macintosh Plus computer had a whopping 1MB of memory and retailed for $2599. Back then, if an email had to be sitting in a server for more than 180 days, there was a | Read More »

I don’t have a college degree.
You may have watched the news recently and seen people up in arms over comments made by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. He “punted” a question on evolution from a reporter, because you know… it’s irrelevant. And of course he is walking around every day, unapologetically not having a college degree and, as we’ve recently learned from our friends in the media, that means he’s a | Read More »
Oppose the Local Radio Freedom Act
The future of the GOP is in anti-cronyist shifts in policy that favor free markets, not specific companies or industries. This is one important way we can demonstrate to the American people that small government is for the little guy, and big government is for the big, well-connected guy. One way to do this is to defeat the Local Radio Freedom Act, which is a | Read More »
This Idea Beats Forced Service to Homosexual Marriage
RedState reader Clifweston wins the internet today with this most excellent idea. How about a different tactic that doesn’t risk the business owner’s estate? Why not advertise that the proceeds of all same sex marriage sales go to organizations that offend gays and radical feminists, organizations that advocate for and support traditional values, etc.? Thus, Stalinists will themselves funding their opponents and the novelty of | Read More »
