The Eyes of Texas on Congress
Texas has the first of the congressional primaries taking place this Tuesday, and there are a few interesting races to keep your radar screen. The first race is the District 4 race. The incumbant, Ralph Hall, is a former Democrat who became a Republican and has served the district for many years. One of the issues he has been facing is a constituency that wonders whether he | Read More »

Getting Rid of Alan Greyson
Every time this guy opens his mouth he inserts his very large foot in it. I just saw a great clip from, of all places, Chris Matthews Hardball. I first saw it thanks to Dan Perrin’s Jan 22nd post. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/01/22/matthews_to_grayson_reconciliation_will_not_work_with_senate.html What’s important to take from this confrontation between Greyson and Matthews is that Matthews does everything but call Greyson an idiot, which he seems to be. | Read More »
I am stunned by the announcement of Dede Scozzafava that she is dropping out the race in NY’s 23rd. I think the last straw was the endorsement of Doug Hoffman by George Pataki. Pataki has never been considered a right of center Republican much less a Conservative. In New York, however, the political game is a little more complex. New York is one of the few states | Read More »
Dunbar Village Gang Rape
You may wonder what this topic has to do with the Red State site? I was in a Palm Beach County courtroom on Friday and was able to hear the most incredible story of love and courage and I thought that I would share it with you. In case you didn’t hear this story and don’t about it, I warn you that it is an | Read More »
Yesterday I was horrified to see the media clips of the Scottish government’s release of Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, the convicted terrorist of Pan Am flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. Apparently, officials in Scotland were over-whelmed with compassion for the murdering scoundrel because he is dying of prostate cancer. The jubilant celebrations upon the arrival of the mass murderer in Libya were stark in contrast | Read More »
Erick Erickson on Hannity Last Night
Congratulations to Erick who was on Hannity last night. The blond who appeared with him and Juan WIlliams was a littel dizzy but I was glad to see Erick. It shows that this site is becoming a good source for the dissemination of information to conservatives who can’t get the truth from the main stream sources. Keep up the good work Erick and the rest | Read More »
Sarah Palin in a New Light, the Democrat Party up to old tricks.
I came across this article yesterday written by Frances Rice the Chairwoman of the National Black Republican Association. I recommend that everyone read the article but also that you look into the NBRA. It is an organization that is unswayed by political expediency. It is an organization that will not forget the diabolical deeds of the Democrat Party. And it is an organization that makes no excuses for… well just read and make up your mind.

2010 Reasons to Wonder about Florida Republicans
At a time when political contributions are weak the Republican Party of Florida headed by Jim Greer wants to limit candidates in the primaries. But that begs the question, is that to save money or save his favorites?

There is a movement in place to “remake who we are as Republicans.” It began after the disatrous presidential election where the Republican candidate got hooked on the ploy that the Democrat candidate was going to change the tone in Washington. Remember the “there’s no Republican or Democrat America, no black or white America, only one America.” And “we going to reach accross the aisle | Read More »
