Expanded abortion law defeated in New York
For two years New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been pushing an Orwellian named ” Women’s Equality Act.” Most of the ten items in the bill were feel good things which already exist but for the sake of winning the War on Women, they were reiterated to make the radical feminists feel good about themselves. The bill has been held up in the New York | Read More »
Cut a baby from a woman; kill it; it isn’t murder in Colorado
When people defend abortion, this is one of the consequences. I’m not sure the Planned Parenthood, pro-infanticide crowd sees this as a feature or a bug: A former nurse’s aide will not face murder charges for allegedly cutting and removing an unborn baby from the mother’s womb, Boulder County, Colorado, prosecutor Stanley Garnett said Thursday. The mother, Michelle Wilkins, answered a Craigslist ad for baby | Read More »
Phil Robertson’s Point is Poorly Delivered but Nothing New
I first became aware of Phil Robertson’s recent controversial comments because Ace wrote up a criticism headlined “So Phil Robertson Is Yammering Again.” I disagreed with some of what he said but that was that and I went about my day. Then an article by Katherine Timpf at National Review titled “Stop Defending Phil Robertson – You’re Embarrassing Yourself” popped up as well and I started | Read More »
Mike Pence signs religious freedom bill
It is really a freakin shame when the nation has deteriorated to the point where it is a) necessary to pass a law guaranteeing free exercise of religion and b) where it is controversial to do so. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday signed into law a religious objections bill that some convention organizers and business leaders have opposed amid concern it could allow discrimination | Read More »
Jeb Bush adviser vows ‘death to the Zionist Entity’
Well, he didn’t exactly say it in those words but the meaning was the same. At a meeting of J Street, an allegedly pro-Israel group devoted to the eradication of Israel, Jeb Bush foreign policy adviser, Jim Baker, warned really, really bad stuff would happen if Israel did not pursue a two state solution: Jeb Bush foreign policy adviser James Baker warned that Israel could | Read More »
Yahoo News sends ignoramus to cover Ted Cruz’s Liberty University speech
Most Americans, at least those with a modicum of education and a passing knowledge of American history, were anything but surprised when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% said this in his speech announcing his candidacy for president of the United States: And yet, for so many Americans, the promise of America seems more and more distant. What is the promise of America? | Read More »

Barack Obama Lies With Rape Statistics
This does not imply 20% Rate of Incidence per 1000 women. Heather MacDonald makes us aware of an interesting mathematical claim being made by President Obama and his happy-go-lucky sidekick Scranton Joe. The most common statistic thrown out these days by President Obama, Vice President Biden, on down is that one in five women will be the victims of sexual assault | Read More »

Robert Reich’s Luddite Fear of Efficiency
Neo-Luddite Dr. Robert Reich was kind enough to describe to us what he considers to be a horrifying future. Hint: you will probably respectfully disagree. It’s now possible to sell a new product to hundreds of millions of people without needing many, if any, workers to produce or distribute it. And you know what? IT.GETS.SCARIER. A friend, operating from his home | Read More »
March 23, 1775. Patrick Henry at the Second Virginia Convention.
Perhaps appropriate considering Senator Ted Cruz announced as a candidate for president today. When 39-year old delegate Patrick Henry rose on March 23, 1775, at the Second Virginia Convention to speak in favor of the proposition of organizing companies of volunteer infantry and cavalry in every Virginia county he was already known firebrand. Back in 1765, he had been on the forefront of advocating for American | Read More »
Section 8 housing vouchers pay for luxury apartments
If I wasn’t footing the bill for this nonsense it would be funny. But I am, so it isn’t. Verde Point is a self-described “luxury apartment” complex with a rooftop pool and “personal wine storage” that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes | Read More »
You know what? Segregation is a minority right
One of the great things about this highly paid gig as a RedState contributor, other than the private jet and unlimited hookers and bourbon, is being professionally obligated to keep an eye on what the left is up to. By following the left you are able to read “trans-women” (which, I believe though I’m ready to accept correction, is a man who is suffering from | Read More »
Starbucks’s racial conversations claims its first victim
You could see this coming. It was as visible as a thunderhead on the prairie. The only people who couldn’t see the logical outcome of Starbucks’s utterly benighted plan to encourage untrained “baristas” start conversations on race with people they didn’t know was the people who came up with the idea. Yesterday, my colleague, Moe Lane, set up the potential for hijinks: I do not | Read More »
