I reject Donald Trump and would never vote for him. Here’s why.
I know it’s flabbergasting that a RedState contributor would oppose Donald Trump, and instead support candidates that RedState has supported and loved for years: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. But I have reasons that I will never support Donald Trump in an election (primary or general), and he can never even get my vote. Here’s why.
Burning oil for windmills: The Green Energy scam exposed
The ‘global warming’ extremists tell us we need to invest heavily in ‘renewable energy’ in order to Save The Planet™. They tell us government spending, ‘carbon taxes,’ and other big government tools are needed in order to make sure investment is directed to the ‘proper’ things. New developments from Sweden give us more evidence the whole thing is a fraud!
South Carolina Republican shows up the gun grabbers in the press
The Bill of Rights is one of the pillars of our civil society in America. So when elements of it are seen as being attacked, we tense up. Yet, members of the press (especially the fruitcakes at the New York Daily News) are all eager to have licensing, registration, testing, and control over our Second Amendment rights. What if we fed them their own medicine? | Read More »
17 days away from Iowa: Can Rubio or Cruz stump Trump?
We’re 17 days from the Iowa caucuses. As Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio look to stump Donald Trump, who currently holds a very slim lead in Iowa and a 15 point margin in the national polling average, let’s compare how Trump stands, with previous frontrunners this far out. Can Trump be beaten this late in the game?
Democratic Progressives defeat Nationalists in ROC (Taiwan) elections
Some countries’ politics are easy for Americans to follow. Take Japan. They have two main parties: one that’s pro-national security, pro-growth, and nationalist. The other is socialist. Japan’s politics are the easiest thing in the world for Americans to have a feel for. Other countries are harder to get. The Republic of China’s has divisions completely unlike ours, so let me breakdown their new election. | Read More »
Fox Debate: Did you catch Ted Cruz using the establishment to defend himself?
Last night’s debate’s real utility was in Ted Cruz and Donald Trump jockeying for position in Iowa. Sure other candidates were on stage, notably Marco Rubio as he seeks to survive the first few states, but this was the first genuine, face-to-face clash between Cruz and Trump. And in the fight over Trump’s birther nonsense, Cruz was more than happy to enlist the establishment’s darlings | Read More »
Putin shut down a power grid last month. This is why we need NSA and CISA.
Imagine going without power for 6 hours in the dead of winter, 2 days before Christmas, because some foreign power wanted to poke at your country. That’s what Putin’s minions did to 8,000 folks in Ukraine on December 23 last month, and if you think American energy firms, living fat and happy on local monopolies, are better equipped to fight these attacks… hahahahaha.
Iowa polling: Is Ted Cruz holding up against Donald Trump?
It’s amazing to me how little polling there actually is of Iowa right now. We’re about two weeks away from the caucuses, but according to Real Clear Politics as of this writing, there have only been six polls this year. So when we’re ‘ooh’ing and ‘ahh’ing at the rough-and-tumble between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, we don’t actually have very many data points to look | Read More »
House GOP one-ups Obama’s SOTU on criminal justice reform
President Barack Obama used his State of the Union message to push a forward-looking agenda, as is the style these days. One element was to reduce sentences on crimes he doesn’t think are all that serious. The House GOP is going a step further, and interestingly enough, Obama is opposing it. I guess he only wants show reform, not real reform.
Turkish courts get it right on punishing hackers
American courts are so weak about prosecuting hackers. Aaron Swartz’s defenders had a freak-out when he was at risk of getting up to 50 years, after turning down a 6 month plea, because he willfully disrupted a major university’s access to important, expensive data. But when online attackers hurt many people all at once, the law is wrong when if doesn’t take into account each | Read More »
Cryptography scammers feed off of the Edward Snowden cult
For a long time, cryptography was really only used by spooks, mathematicians, and cranks. Back around 2000 I messed with it. The idea that I could set it up so that nobody could fake a business email from me through cryptographic signatures, was an appealing one. But I stopped since it was a hassle, and nobody cared. But now after the Edward Snowden spy effort | Read More »
Liz Mair exposes Ann Coulter as a one-issue fraud
Four years ago, Ann Coulter was part of the gang that was seeing to foist Mitt Romney upon us. Why? He was making noises about being tough on immigration, and so Coulter declared Romney could do no wrong. This time it’s the Donald Trump personality cult she’s joined, and Make America Awesome‘s Liz Mair has exposed her as a fraud. I’m giving you the video | Read More »
Myth BUSTED: Steve Hoffman shows Ted Cruz can win by expanding the base
I’m old enough to remember the hand wringing. The GOP must reach out to libertarians, they said. Young people are too libertarian for the GOP, was the claim. When we at RedState banned Ron Paul supporters, we were told we were part of the problem, keeping the GOP from ever winning again, because Paul was reaching an ‘untapped strain’ of voter. Well, here we are | Read More »
[VIDEO] Watch as Donald Trump calls for more deals with dictators
Donald Trump now claims to oppose Barack Obama’s deal with Iran, but back in 2007, he used to use every Democrat talking point in the book, including criticizing the Bush administration for not making more deals with dictators.
Donald Trump is quivering like a scared chihuahua in a thunderstorm
Little toy dogs don’t handle thunderstorms well, and neither is Donald Trump handling the newest polling like a mature adult. Trump knows the trend is awful for him, suggesting he’s squandered his lead by putting his foot in his mouth one too many times, and giving away what was once a yuge poll advantage, right into the hands of Ted Cruz. So he’s lashing out.
