Why is the Center for Immigration Studies publishing an “alt right” racist?
I’ve been warning for a while now that the John Tanton universe of Malthusian, anti-immigration groups – FAIR, NumbersUSA, and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) – are not our friends. They don’t promote conservatives ideas, and we should stay away from them. Well, for those who weren’t convinced to ignore groups bankrolled by a Planned Parenthood local bigshot, take a look at this: Now | Read More »
[VIDEO] Watch as Trump tries to distance the Republican Party from Conservatives
Ronald Reagan gave the Republican Party its biggest wins in the post-war era, brought up two generations of conservatives to emulate him, and gave the party new life after Richard Nixon trashed it. After Reagan, suddenly everyone was a conservative in the Republican party. Donald Trump, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, revealed his intent to define the Republican party away from conservatism.
Here’s why the general will be different from the primary for Donald Trump
Right now we’re seeing a huge overcorrection when it comes to Donald Trump. After he overshot virtually everyone’s expectations in the primary, now we’re seeing folks saying he’ll win just as big in the general. But the general will be different. Advantages Trump had in the primary will evaporate. Here’s why.
This important precedent can save the Republican Party from Donald Trump
Historically, political parties in this country had an important check on raw majority rule. If one faction tried to ram through a nominee or platform that didn’t represent the whole party, and offered no form of compromise, then the rest could bolt. That is, they could leave the convention, withdraw their support, and put their own nominees on the ballot in their states. Honorable Republican | Read More »
Indiana reminds us: Polling remains dead
So before the results came in from Indiana, I pointed out that Indiana looked winnable for Cruz, and looked at the ways the polls had gotten it badly wrong in neighboring states, ways that grossly underestimated one candidate or another. Turns out they grossly underestimated Donald Trump.
Tonight we are all William Lloyd Garrison #NeverTrump
With the chairman of the Republican Party, Reince Priebus, swearing eternal loyalty to ZOD (in the words of Jay Cost, I feel about the Republican Party the way Garrison felt about the Constitution. It is lost, and I will no longer have any part of it.

South Dakota takes on the feds over Internet sales taxes
South Dakota is no stranger to defying the runaway federal courts when they are wrong. However now South Dakota is trying it again, on tax collection, and while I understand the motivation, I don’t agree with their policy aims.
Checking the polls, Indiana is winnable for Ted Cruz
Lately I’ve been leaning hard on the 538 projections to see where we’re at with the Republican nomination. After a good stretch he’s close enough that uncommitted delegates could get him over the top. But he’s projected to take a near sweep in Indiana. Will he perform?
The Science™ is in: Michelle Obama’s lunch program is FAILING!
Michelle Obama, like many first ladies in modern times, took on a cause to pass the time while her husband is in office. Childhood Obesity became her great cause. Apparently, getting kids to eat less food is a laudable goal in America today, as our nation is so wealthy. Scientists have investigated the trajectory of childhood obesity in America since her program began. The results | Read More »
The GOP electorate gave up to Donald Trump last night, but we should not.
Ever since Super Tuesday, and doubly so since New York, the NYC-dominated press has been pushing the line that Donald Trump is the inevitable nominee. While we active few on the Internet are able to break through that message to see what the truth was, most voters are watching Fox or CNN. Fox News has the highest ratings of basic cable now. So last night, | Read More »
WOW: Donald Trump funded Democrat just rigged the voter rolls for Hillary!
What if I told you a Democrat Governor just pencil whipped over 200,000 convicted felons into eligibility to vote in a swing state, just in time to support Hillary Clinton this fall? I’d say it sounds like someone’s trying to rig the system! Guess who gave this Democrat $25,000 for his last run for Governor, in order to defeat a solid conservative? That’s right, Donald | Read More »
Polls confirm it: John Kasich is propping up Donald Trump this week
While Ted Cruz and John Kasich are beginning to work together to stop Donald Trump, but their new deal only affects future states. This week, with 172 delegates on the line, John Kasich’s presence in the race sadly serves only as massive spoiler to help Donald Trump, and the polls confirm it.
Denver train to the airport opens as public-private partnership success
It just got even easier to get to the 2016 Redstate Gathering, the must-attend event of the summer. Denver’s light and commuter rail system just opened an extension from downtown to the airport. Running 22 hours a day, it gets you right downtown, making it easy to get to the Grand Hyatt from there. If you don’t like to deal with the hit-or-miss nature of | Read More »
Oppose the Burr-Feinstein Cryptography Bill
“Never let a crisis go to waste,” is one of the operating principles of the big-government left. Well, the Islamic terrorist murders in San Bernardino were the latest crisis used by Barack Obama and his FBI head, James Comey. Their goal is to turn the Fourth Amendment inside out, attack the ability of ordinary Americans to protect our data from prying eyes, and align cryptography | Read More »
Donald Trump in New York confirms: Poll averages are dead
Public political polling has been dying for the last 10 years. The end of the landline telephone era and the rise of the Internet have combined to turn it from a reasonably accurate public service, into a farce existing solely to draw clicks.
Polling averages served to take the polls, which were increasingly inaccurate, and piece together some sort of coherent message from them. But now the polls are so wrong, even the polling averages have outlived their usefulness.
