There are several different storylines going into tonight, and each of them will hit their climax during the debate. 1. This Debate Is Donald Trump’s To Lose Yes, both Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have | Read More »
BREAKING: Jim Gilmore To Suspend Campaign
One of the most charismatic men of the 2016 campaign, a victim of both circumstance and Donald Trump, Jim Gilmore was never given a chance. But, here is Jim Gilmore being awesome. However, The Hill is reporting that Gilmore is set to exit a stage he was never really on. “My campaign was intended to offer the gubernatorial experience, with the track record of a true | Read More »
Louisiana’s Democrat Governor Threatens College Football Over Taxes
Last night, a Democrat was on TV and pretty much threatened to ruin everything… and surprisingly, it’s not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders I’m referring to. Louisiana’s newly-seated Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, gave an address to the state calling for new taxes to be passed by the state legislature. If he does not get those tax increases, then it will mean no college football | Read More »
How Many Other Publications Let The Clinton Campaign Do Their Writing For Them?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign always expected to be walked right into the Democratic nomination for president, and after her embarassing defeat in the 2008 election cycle, she began laying the groundwork to make herself inevitable following Barack Obama’s administration. The media, which the Clinton’s whine and moan about being against them, have done the lion’s share of trying to show that she is not only inevitable, | Read More »
BREAKING: Carly Fiorina Suspends Her Campaign
Carly Fiorina is suspending her campaign a day after her second poor showing in this primary cycle. Fiorina made the announcement today, posting a lengthy statement on her Facebook page detailing her exit. This campaign was always about citizenship—taking back our country from a political class that only serves the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well connected. Election after election, the same empty | Read More »
Is Chris Christie Dropping Out?
It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, and Christie is (as of this | Read More »
New Hampshire and the Myth of Electability
The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping things family friendly, I’ll let Marlon | Read More »
Marco Rubio’s Biggest Flaw
Accused of everything from being a part of the establishment to being a robot, Marco Rubio has somehow defied the odds and outperformed expectations. It’s a credit to Rubio’s bona fides that all the right people (read: The Media) are attacking him as too much of a robot now so soon after they praised his ability to pull out a personal win in Iowa. However, | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Budget an Endorsement of Bernie Sanders?
That is certainly what it seems to be, given his final budget submission to Congress. Ever a troll to the very end, President Barack Obama has turned in a budget that has as much chance of passing as every other budget he’s submitted to Congress, even when the Democrats were in charge. This budget calls for increased spending on Medicaid, education, and clean energy and | Read More »
Marco Rubio Guilty of Using Rhetorical Device Taught To Middle School Students
Marco Rubio has been hammered pretty hard since Saturday night about sounding “too robotic” to be a viable candidate. The basis for this accusation was his repetition of the idea that Barack Obama isn’t someone ignorant of what he’s doing to the country. He is maliciously doing exactly what he planned to do all along. He was called out on this by Chris Christie in | Read More »
This DHS Whistleblower Was Ordered To Do WHAT?
In the Obama years of the Department of Homeland Security, a lot of questionable things have gone on. For example, as we’ve noted before, the DHS shut down an investigation into the terrorists who would eventually launch a deadly terror-related shooting in San Bernardino, California. We know this and more thanks to Philip Haney, a whistleblower that has made a lot of noise about the | Read More »
Who Were The Grown-ups In The New Hampshire Debate?
The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins one against Donald Trump – and | Read More »
VIDEO: This Is The Single Greatest Recap Of The Iowa Caucus
Everyone has been scrambling since Monday night to bring to you their interpretation of the Iowa caucus. We’ve had plenty of breakdown here at RedState, and we will continue to have it, but no one – not a single person or group – has broken down the Iowa caucus like the group behind this video (Warning: Animated Violence). Cable news should use 3D animated violence, | Read More »
Colorado and Planned Parenthood at cross purposes
Vox has a pretty good story today regarding a public program in the state of Colorado to get free birth control to low-income women. The program is running out of the original private grant money, and the state government does not seem all that eager to set aside resources to keep it going. The thing is, that program resulted in a 40% drop in teen | Read More »
Why Jeb! Should Be Re-evaluating His Run
Jeb Bush spent about $25,000 for every vote he got in Iowa. He outspent everyone just to stay barely competitive. He came in sixth place, behind Rand Paul (who may or may not be wondering whether risking his own Senate seat is worth it at this point), which is a frankly embarrassing finish for someone who spent so much. Why is Jeb Bush still in | Read More »
