Frederick Douglass Republicans Are Fighting To Win Hearts, Minds & The Masses
K. Carl Smith may soon be one of the most influential people in America you have never heard of…until now.
Most certainly, Mr. Smith is one of the most important people grassroots conservatives and Republican Party leaders should be listening to right now. Yet, his message is not really partisan. It is American.
While you could call Mr. Smith a community organizer…of sorts, that would seem to be doing him an injustice. You see, K. Carl Smith is more than a mere community organizer. Mr. Smith is a messenger.
More specifically, he is a messenger of what he calls Frederick Douglass Conservatism; and that message, as you’ll hear in a few moments, transcends the barriers brought on by race, sex, creed or national origin.

#dontblink pic.twitter.com/TwBsTw3hWy — Moe Lane (@moelane) August 2, 2013 If you’re wondering why there’s a sudden blizzard of #dontblink tags coming from RedState Gathering folks today, it’s because of something that Ted Cruz said during his speech at the Gathering today. Basically, Senator Cruz was asked about how conservatives should hold firm on defunding Obamacare in the face of concerted effort by the media and | Read More »

Finger Lickin’ Frauds
John Cornyn went on radio yesterday with Chad Hasty (on twitter: @chadhastyradio) on Lubbock’s NewsTalk 790 AM KFYO. When asked why he took his name off Mike Lee’s letter about defunding Obamacare, John Cornyn said he did so because of a Congressional Research Service report on the implication of Mike Lee’s strategy.There’s just one problem. John Cornyn took his name off the letter before the | Read More »
Yale’s Declaration On Rape Proves Why Collegiate Females Should Be Allowed To Carry
Via Jezebel, who also supported disarming women on campus out of concern for the rapists: The 2011 federal Title IX investigation into Yale ended with a voluntary resolution agreement between the University and the DOE’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR); Yale didn’t face any disciplinary action for creating a “hostile sexual environment,” but was required to implement new grievance procedures and report to the OCR until May 31, 2014.

We Are Gathering
Five years ago I put up a post on RedState asking if any of the long time readers, diarists, and commenters wanted to get together in person. We had been online four years at that point.To my surprise, several hundred said yes. So we met in Atlanta five years ago this weekend. The first weekend in August ever since we have met. Our second year, | Read More »
Should Matt Lewis Stop Making His Titles Questions?
Matt Lewis thinks conservatives should not primary Mitch McConnell. His title asks the question, “Should conservatives try to oust Mitch McConnell?” instead of giving his answer “No, Conservatives Should Not Primary Mitch McConnell.”I guess this is for page views.In any event, Matt thinks conservatives should leave Mitch McConnell alone and instead help guys like Tom Cotton run against a Democrat in Arkansas. I’m happy to | Read More »
Matt Bevin and the Coming Revolution
Earlier this month, we commemorated the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. It is sobering to think how much our forefathers sacrificed to create and preserve the greatest nation in the history of mankind. Almost every American family was dramatically affected by the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and World War II. Yet, despite their enormous sacrifice, the past few generations have diminished the greatness | Read More »
I Think @BrentBozell Wins This One
Many know Brent Bozell as head of the Media Research Center. Few realize he has another group called For America.It is For America you need to focus on right now. They’ve just thrown a punch in Mitch McConnell’s direction over his refusal to sign on to Mike Lee’s plan to undermine Obamacare.Watch this. It’s the best political ad on television today.If you like the ad, | Read More »
Democrats Condone Weiner Campaign Attack On Female Intern
Earlier when asked about former representative-turned-mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz excused the matter as a “personal struggle” and declined to demand that he leave office. Relatedly, Sally Kohn has a piece suggesting that women at the top face more harassment than those on the lower rungs of the ladder and writes: Another study found that the presence of a women in executive positions | Read More »
John McCain Twists Arms Fast and Furiously to Confirm Obama’s Nominee for ATF Director
No agency better exemplifies the malfeasance of this administration than the ATF – Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This same organization that was involved in the most egregious gun running scandal in American history (Fast and Furious) is also prosecuting law-abiding gun owners with zealous furor. Yet, Senator John McCain has just ensured that the man who was at the scene of the | Read More »
From Pig to Man, and From Man to Pig
In 2003, then just Doctor Tom Coburn, published his book. It was titled Breach of Trust: How Washington Turns Outsiders into Insiders. An eye witness account of the Republican Revolution of 1994 and following, journalist Robert Novak wrote the forward to the book. In his forward, Novak noted that Coburn, while serving in the Gingrich House of Representatives, realized “Speaker Gingrich, House Majority Leader Armey | Read More »
Weiner Communications Director Calls Intern “Slutbag,” Other Assorted Ladybit Pejoratives
I am not making this up. Prolific sexter Anthony Weiner’s communications director, Barbara Morgan, lost her mind during an interview with TPM. The campaign staff awoke to see their former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, on the front cover of the Daily News. Inside the paper was an article bylined by Nuzzi in which she told a rather unflattering tale of her experience working on Anthony Weiner’s mayoral bid. Now, Team | Read More »
Why We Always Lose, and the Need for 21st Century Conservatives
Ever since the 1930s, or perhaps the times of Woodrow Wilson and the progressives, we’ve ceased to function as a constitutional republic governed by our founding laws. Instead we have transitioned into a pure democracy government by majority rule. The tyrannical rule of a majority of the political class, in conjunction with the lack of courage from those who claim to represent We the People, | Read More »
