Ted Cruz is Acting Like a Front Runner
Love him or hate him, it is hard to deny that Ted Cruz has made the right strategic decision at every turn of this primary. Initially, Cruz made people uncomfortable by buddying up to Trump when all those who attacked him went by the wayside. Then, he turned on the attack on Trump at just the right time. He built an incredibly impressive turnout machine | Read More »
Donald Trump isn’t Just Pro-Choice, He’s Also a Sociopath
After a week of horribly damaging and completely inconsistent statements on abortion, Donald Trump finally settled on the position that the abortion laws in this country shouldn’t be changed from what they are now. Many people have pointed out that this is a functionally openly pro-choice position, because the current abortion laws in this country are just about the most extremely pro-abortion laws on earth. | Read More »
Reince Priebus: There Will be “Consequences” for Trump’s Broken Loyalty Pledge
I’m sure in his own mind, Donald Trump sounded tough and independent when he declared in a town hall last week that he wouldn’t support the GOP nominee anymore if it wasn’t him. He probably thought it played well with his supporters, who for some reason find a man who complains endlessly about how unfair everyone is to him to be “strong” and not “a | Read More »
Will We Ever Find the Bottom of Donald Trump’s Ignorance?
I think most of us have a family member who is kind of similar to Donald Trump. This family member has probably had some amount of success in business or some other personal endeavor, and feels that this makes them qualified to opine loudly on every item of world affairs that comes down the pike. Generally, this person will opine loudly and confidently that the | Read More »
Trump’s Crack Campaign Now Throwing a Fit over Tennessee Delegate Selection
Displaying the elan and grace that has been the hallmark of the Trump campaign since day one, Trump’s Tennessee organization may have made a costly mistake that could hurt Trump’s chances to win a contested convention. The story is long and somewhat complex. Trump won about 39% of the vote here in Tennessee, and was awarded 57% of the state’s delegate total. Most of those delegates | Read More »
If Donald Trump Knew How to Shut Up, He’d Have this Primary Locked Up by Now
There comes a time in every Republican primary where the frontrunner begins to studiously ignore the also-rans and focus on his likely Democrat opponent. Knowing when to do that is a key skill for any Republican candidate. Rudy Giuliani did it way too early in 2008, and as a result he never actually won against his Republican opponents. There’s an argument to be made that | Read More »
Why Does RedState Attack Trump So Much?
Sometimes, I truly wish that I could pull back the veil on the nonstop assortment of crazy emails that come through the RedState contact form – more than half of which I don’t even have time to open. We get incoherent rants, often written in several different font sizes and colors, calling us all manner of unprintable names and espousing all sorts of conspiracy theories. | Read More »
What Happened At the Meeting between Trump and the RNC? (VIDEO)
Yesterday evening I was on Dana Loesch’s show to talk about the surprise meeting between Trump and the RNC, and a host of other topics. The segment was too long to transcribe, but I hope you enjoy the clip!
A Thought for Republican Candidates Who are Considering Endorsing Trump
Right now, there have to be a lot of Republicans who are sitting on the fence about endorsing Trump. If Trump gets the nomination, there will be a lot more. Republican candidates for office will face an unprecedentedly tough question: do I hop on the Trump train or go it on my own? Here’s something for all those candidates to consider: look at what’s happened | Read More »
Trump Surrogate Scottie Neil Hughes Outrageously Blames Pro-Life Movement For Trump’s Idiotic Failure To Grasp It
This is… one of the more unbelievable segments you will ever see on TV. I’ve said it a million times – not everyone who supports Trump is a garbage human being, but the folks who are leading the Trump Train in public are universally garbage. Just unmitigated trash. And I won’t apologize for saying it. I swear, these people are going to drive me to literally donate | Read More »
What Happened with Frank Brady and Brady and Associates
Earlier today, I got an email purporting to be from a Frank J. Brady of Brady and Associates. The email used an extremely derogatory term about one of our RedState writers, and came (at least purportedly) from Mr. Brady’s business email address. I get about 2 or 3 dozen hate emails a day here, roughly 98% of which are from Trump supporters, and roughly 90% | Read More »
Ben Carson’s Dumb Defense of Trump Proves that Neither is Fit to be President
Yesterday, Donald Trump made the worst possible hash out of a question on abortion that you could even imagine. He basically made Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Christine O’Donnell look like seasoned veterans in terms of manipulating the media minefield of abortion questions. First, he said in response to Chris Matthews that a woman should be punished if she gets an abortion. Less than an | Read More »
This One GIF Proves that John Kasich is Unfit to Be President
Wow. What a monster. That’s really all I can even say. This GIF speaks entirely for itself. Watch it and see if you can in good conscience vote for this man.

Trump: This Whole Abortion Thing is Very Confusing (VIDEO)
I hope any Republican who has thoughts of endorsing or backing Donald Trump if he wins the nomination has been watching the news today to get a sense of what their life will be like trying to defend Trump while he’s on the campaign trail. Mostly, it will involve answering a lot of embarrassing questions about whether they support the latest dumb/offensive thing Trump has | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Admits he is Unable to Do His Job when it Comes to Trump
I don’t think there’s really another way to characterize what he apparently said on his show today. According to Politico (I don’t have audio yet, but will work to get it as soon as I can), Limbaugh spent time today addressing the furor caused by his remarks yesterday about the Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandowski incident, some of which we covered here. Apparently, in addition to saying | Read More »
