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 »
Tonight’s Biggest Losers Are Trump and Pollsters
As the Iowa Caucus draws to a close, there are two winners: Ted Cruz, who outperformed all expectations, and Hillary Clinton, the inevitable candidate who scraped by. However, there are also two losers, and their losses are bigger than the winners’ wins. Those two losers are Donald Trump and national polls. For both, it is a very clear loss, and an almost symbiotic one. Trump | Read More »
Forget Obama Jesus, This Insane Future Velvet Painting Is EVERYTHING
At the request of the Powers That Be, I have to actually include something besides just an image here. HOWEVER, I do so under protest. Why would I need anything other than this picture? Why would I want anything other than this picture in this post? This picture is perfect. This picture is how you can tell there is a cult surrounding the campaign of Donald | Read More »
Melissa Harris Perry Thinks Illegal Immigrants Are Slaves?
Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC, of tampon earring fame, has a new concern. Her concern is that knocking on doors of illegal immigrants is essentially the revival of the Fugitive Slave Act, a law from 1850 that allows slave owners to recapture any runaway slaves. This is, of course, not the best moment in United States history, but it is something that happened. You see, if | Read More »
Bernie Sanders flips on Hillary’s E-mail Scandal
Bernie Sanders famously shrugged away the idea that Hillary Clinton’s e-mail issues were, in fact, issues at all. It was just another Republican witch hunt to distract from the REAL issues like universal health care and campaign finance reform. However, now that the latest revelations that 22 e-mails in 7 e-mail chains contained top secret information, Sanders has decided to flip on the issue and | Read More »
BREAKING: State Department Admits 22 E-mails on Hillary’s Unsecured Server Were ‘Top Secret’
This is just being reported by the Associated Press. Here’s more from the AP: But The Associated Press has learned seven email chains are being withheld in full because they contain information deemed to be “top secret.” The 37 pages include messages recently described by a key intelligence official as concerning so-called “special access programs” — a highly restricted subset of classified material that could | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Has The Worst Idea Imaginable
There is nothing – nothing at all – that will end well here. SnapChat is an app that is used primarily for tweens and teens to send naked photos to each other, as well as post them as “stories” for the world to see. The main feature of the app is that photos will be instantly destroyed after their time is up. Bill Clinton is a | Read More »
Chicago PD: Meet the New Boss (Same as the old Boss)
Despite media scrutiny and activists protesting, so far very little is changing in Chicago as far as police tactics go. The Guardian specifically targets forced confessions in a new piece out this morning, and there is an increasingly hostile atmosphere when it comes to law enforcement in general. We at RedState have covered police issues before, largely because it falls directly under one of the | Read More »
Can Bloomberg News Cover Michael Bloomberg Impartially?
When the media gets you feeling down about about unfair and partial coverage of certain things over others, think of the honorable Kathy Kiely. This journalist resigned from Bloomberg News today over concerns that the news organization won’t aggressively cover its owner, Michael Bloomberg, who is considering an independent run for president. The news organization has a long-standing rule protecting its owner from coverage that | Read More »
