    Exclusive RedState Video: Ted Cruz - "There Are Reasons to Be Afraid"

    Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit down with Ted Cruz, who generously let me interview him on a wide range of topics. You can see his explanation for why he changed positions on H-1B visas here. In this video, talks about the accusation that he and Donald Trump are “fear mongerers.”

    Exclusive RedState Video: Ted Cruz Explains why His Position on H-1B Visas Has Changed

    I had the opportunity to sit down yesterday with at a campaign event in Nashville and ask him several questions. One of the questions I asked was whether Senator Cruz still supported expanding the H-1B visa program, as he has in the past. Senator Cruz indicated that he no longer does, and you can see his explanation here: Transcript: RedState: Senator, I think the path to | Read More »

    Virginia Attorney General Unilaterally Revokes Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity with 25 States

    Virginia Attorney General Unilaterally Revokes Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity with 25 States

    In one of the most galling and senseless gun grabbing moves that Democrats have perpetrated during their ongoing failed campaign against the Second Amendment, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring (D) has announced that Virginia will no longer honor reciprocity agreements on concealed carry permits with 25 of the 30 states it currently recognizes. The practical effect of this move is that your Virginia concealed carry | Read More »

    Maybe Muslims Should Do More to Stop Islamophobia

    Maybe Muslims Should Do More to Stop Islamophobia

    Nothing on Earth is more predictable or tiresome than the Democrat outrage over “Islamophobia” every time a Muslim terrorizes a bunch of people in the name of Islam. I don’t want to have to be the one to break this to liberals, but they call it “terrorism” because the goal is to inspire terror, and the reason Muslims do it is because it works. Therefore, | Read More »

    We Won’t Have Lindsey Graham to Kick Around Anymore

    We Won't Have Lindsey Graham to Kick Around Anymore

    has performed a great service for this country: he has decided to stop subjecting us to his Presidential campaign. CNN is now announcing that Graham is suspending his campaign, which means that this will be the last we hear of how will bring booze back to the White House if he is elected. In an indication of how much politics has changed (and not necessarily | Read More »

    Thank you, President Obama, for Commuting Sharanda Jones’ Sentence

    Thank you, President Obama, for Commuting Sharanda Jones' Sentence

    A few months ago, we covered here a story about a woman named Sharanda Jones who was serving her 16th year of a Life Without Parole sentence for her first offense – a nonviolent drug crime. Her only hope at the time for ever seeing freedom was that President Obama (or some subsequent President) would commute her sentence. Unexpectedly, Sharanda’s story was picked up by | Read More »

    The Democrats Do Not Want You to Watch Them Debate

    The Democrats Do Not Want You to Watch Them Debate

    The Democrat party is ashamed of their ideas. There’s no other conclusion to be drawn from the way they have drawn up their debate schedule, which was incredibly sparse to begin with. Not only were there few debates scheduled (a clear indication that the DNC is firmly in the tank for Hillary Clinton), but they have intentionally scheduled them at times that would conflict with | Read More »

    Rand Paul Thinks Attacking Other Republicans Constitutes “Momentum”

    Rand Paul Thinks Attacking Other Republicans Constitutes "Momentum"

    I am going to share with you the latest fundraising email from the campaign. We’ve all been busy discussing the Cruz v. Rubio feud lately, and whether the behavior of the two candidates is appropriate towards each other. Into this void steps . Now, I thought had a pretty good debate – easily his best one of the year, in fact. I said so immediately | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Would be a Better President than Marco Rubio

    Ted Cruz Would be a Better President than Marco Rubio

      Yesterday I wrote a piece about some qualms that I had with some of ‘s current campaign tactics. Judging by the reaction I got from some people who are open supporters of , I was not the only one who shared those concerns. After the debate in the spin room, I ran into a very prominent conservative media figure (who shall remain nameless here) | Read More »

    The Very French Donald Trump Revolution

    The Very French Donald Trump Revolution

    Although he was an Englishman (by way of Ireland), Sir Edmund Burke is often considered the intellectual father of American conservatism. As a member of the British House of Commons in the 1770s, Burke forcefully defended American independence and preached eloquently that the British crown should allow the American continent the democratic rule they so clearly desired. In his way, he was considered a liberal of his | Read More »

    If Marco Rubio is “Establishment,” then Donald Trump is a Neo-Nazi

    If Marco Rubio is "Establishment," then Donald Trump is a Neo-Nazi

    It’s become de rigeur these days for opponents of – particularly those in the Trump camp, but by no means exclusively them – to refer to him as the “establishment” candidate. This is an unfortunate indicator that the word “establishment” (like the term “RINO” before it) has lost all meaning and is currently most often used by people who are incapable of articulating disagreement on | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Has a Problem

    Ted Cruz Has a Problem

      Up until last night, ‘s refusal to attack Donald Trump was defensible. Without question, it was smart politics, as his rise in the polls would attest. But it was also defensible on the merits as a guy who is a solid conservative in good standing, who was just refusing to criticize any of the other Republicans in the race, preferring rather to point out, | Read More »

    Winners and Losers in Tonight’s CNN/Salem Debate

    Winners and Losers in Tonight's CNN/Salem Debate

    This was, in many respects, the best debate of the season. The moderators kept the focus for the largest part on the most meaningful conflict of the night – which was on the differences between Cruz and Rubio. All of the candidates (including, surprisingly, Jeb Bush and John Kasich) had their moments. There was a refreshing lack of wedge questions and gotcha moments. All in | Read More »
