Thad Cochran or Someone at his Behest Illegally Paid for Votes, Probably

    Thad Cochran or Someone at his Behest Illegally Paid for Votes, Probably

    Let’s start with what we know. FiveThirtyEight has done an analysis that shows that Thad Cochran’s campaign benefited from around 30,000 additional black votes in the runoff election as compared to the initial primary. If you were given only this piece of information and knew nothing of how politics works in the deep South, you might well sound like credulous naif and establishment stooge Rand | Read More »

    Help Chris McDaniel Investigate Election Fraud

    Help Chris McDaniel Investigate Election Fraud

    I hope you might consider donating to Chris McDaniel to help his campaign investigate the possibility that the election was stolen. There appear to be documented irregularities of, for example, Democrats who voted in the Democratic primary voting in the Republican runoff. That’s against the rules. Photographic evidence of the ballot books suggest it happened. We need to help Chris. We know the GOP Establishment | Read More »

    Slow bleeding the GOP Establishment

    Slow bleeding the GOP Establishment

    Most of the 2014 primaries are behind us and the GOP establishment is crowing about its victory of conservatives. Lest you think it is unusual for a party establishment to celebrate winning the primary elections in its own party, you have to realize that the GOP establishment has become essentially the same as the Democrats: same goals, just different paymasters. As Ace says: The difference | Read More »

    Obama’s excellent YOLO presidency continues

    Obama's excellent YOLO presidency continues

    In a rather stunning interview with Bill Clinton political strategist and totally unbiased newsman, George Stephanopoulous, Barack Obama revealed that it is the World Cup, not events, driving his foreign policy agenda: On his way to Minnesota today, President Obama took a break from his day job to watch one of the most anticipated World Cup matches so far — the U.S. vs. Germany — | Read More »

    Obama blames GOP for his failed presidency

    Obama blames GOP for his failed presidency

    If ever one needed proof of the unsuitability of Barack Obama for the presidency, that proof was visible for the world to see today in Minneapolis. Accusing the GOP of a “block me and call me names strategy,” Obama may have thought he was “going Bulworth” but he was really unleashing his spoiled, petulant two year old. President Obama says he’s been itching to “say | Read More »

    MAILBAG: Unintentional Libertarian Irony

    MAILBAG: Unintentional Libertarian Irony

    We get a lot of mail here at RedState. Sometimes it is praise, sometimes it is complaints. Rarely is it so unintentionally funny as when a disgruntled libertarian decides his or her rights were violated and proceeds to preach of sermon. Fortunately for our readers, that is indeed the case we have for you today. Annotated: From: “Linda-Aaron38“ Subject: Red State bans a Libertarian and loses an | Read More »

    Hope or Despair… Your Choice.

    Hope or Despair... Your Choice.

    After this week’s primary loss in Mississippi many conservative activists, who have tried to work within the GOP system, have begun to question the utility of voting for the GOP candidate in the General Election. We’ve already seen calls to back Travis Childers in Mississippi, as well as open debate as to whether conservatives will support Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. Unfortunately, these discussions are justified | Read More »

    Obama seeks to expand US aid to Syrian rebels

    Obama seeks to expand US aid to Syrian rebels

    A few weeks ago the blog, DuffelBlog, carried a funny send up on the Obama administration’s foreign policy called Special Forces Soldier Excited To Train Men Who Will Try To Kill Him In Five Years. But if there has been one “war” this administration has been successful at waging it has been the war on parody. As hard as it may be to believe, Barack | Read More »

    Democrats vs. The First Amendment

    Democrats vs. The First Amendment

    In a lot of ways, it’s hard to discern an identifiable platform for the Democratic Party nowadays, but one thing they have openly and uniformly stood for recently has been opposition to the First Amendment. Harry Reid can’t open his mouth these days without some complaint about the Koch Brothers exercising their right to free speech falling out of it. Reid and 42 other Democrat | Read More »

    Will The Real Bob Barr Stand Up?

    Will The Real Bob Barr Stand Up?

    Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A. King, the president of the Dustin Inman Society, former congressman, Libertarian presidential candidate, and current Republican congressional candidate Bob Barr said he would work to pass federal legislation that mandated the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. The survey itself appeared in the Marietta Daily Journal like this: *Q – Given that it | Read More »

    Rotten at the Core

    Rotten at the Core

    A lot of establishment campaign hands and consultants have been somewhat smug of late about their belief that they have beaten back the TEA Party challenge. So far this primary season, they lost a battle for an open seat in Nebraska (although they promptly pretended to have been in favor of Ben Sasse all along) and suffered a stunning defeat when Eric Cantor lost, but | Read More »
