Who Is this Person in the #WalterScott Shooting Video?

    Who Is this Person in the #WalterScott Shooting Video?

      UPDATE: Per Greg Pollwitz on Twitter, this officer is named Clarence Habersham. I will be submitting an open records request for Officer Habersham’s Incident Report today; however, I expect probable stonewalling. Some members of the legacy media who are covering this story should demand to see this report as soon as possible. Only public pressure will cause the North Charleston PD to release this information. | Read More »

    Too Soon to Go Full Totalitarian

    The gay rights movement has tended to be a well-choreographed stage production over the last number of decades. Over time, behind the scenes, they pushed hard for gay characters in film and television. They pushed gay actors out of the closet and encouraged celebrations of diversity. A population that, according to the census, makes up less than 10 percent of the nation, gives the impression | Read More »

    A Bit Ashamed of Us All

    I have read few people over the past week more eloquently cover the end of the Civil War than my friend Streiff here at RedState. Yesterday, he was one of the few to write about the end of the Civil War, 150 years ago yesterday. I highly encourage you to read it. I think we should all be ashamed of ourselves, just a bit. 150 | Read More »

    April 9, 1865. The Surrender at Appomattox

    April 9, 1865. The Surrender at Appomattox

    Were I asked to pick critical points in American history, points after Independence was a done deal but where the very fate of the Republic teetered on razor’s edge, three would instantly come to mind. First. Washington’s response to the Newburgh Conspiracy and his subsequent resignation as Commander in Chief. Second. Washington’s leaving office after two terms. These two events ensure the United States would | Read More »

    White House admits lying to Congress and America on Iran deal

    Since announcing the nuclear weapons deal with Iran, we’ve documented numerous instances where Obama blatantly and callously lied about the substance of the deal in communications to Congress and the American people (see, for instance, here|here|here). In the past three days other developments have taken place that demonstrate the extent to which Obama has lied about what the deal says. The Iranian Defense Minister has | Read More »

    Democrats: Save us, Lincoln Chafee, you’re ou… no, they’d probably prefer even Martin O’Malley.

    Lincoln Chafee is the sort of candidate that runs when your party’s basic electoral strategy can be best described as ‘YOLO.’

    Rand Paul leads Hillary in Iowa polling

    This is actually incredible and is horrible news for the Clinton campaign. And it isn’t only Paul. Clinton is in a free fall against other GOP possibles: Democrat Hillary Clinton has slipped against leading 2016 Republican candidates in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, according to a poll released on Thursday that cited damage from the furor over the former secretary of state’s emails. The Quinnipiac University | Read More »

    Bobby Jindal takes up the cause of religious liberty

    Despite Mike Pence and Asa Hutchinson folding like cheap suits, not everyone has given up on the cause of religious freedom. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is hitting the problem head on. A bill called the Marriage and Conscience Act is now working its way through the Louisiana legislature and Jindal has said he will sign it. This bill is a significant and welcome departure from | Read More »

    Marriage does work

    Marriage does work

    Sometimes you stumble across things that you just can’t let pass. Yesterday one of those moments happened when I found this:5 reasons marriage doesn’t work anymore. The article is by a 29-year old self proclaimed sex and relationship advisor named Anthony D’Ambrosio. I must confess I’ve never heard of him and as far as I can tell his relationship advice — based on his own | Read More »

    University of Michigan cancels "American Sniper" screening

    A couple of days ago Kimberly Ross wrote a diary here on RedState titled “Generation Wuss.” She was talking about the pervasive mindset among a large swath of Americans that they have the right to be sheltered from any opinion that might make them feel uncomfortable: This really is Generation Wuss. A generation unable to deal with those whose mindsets differ, and whose reaction is either | Read More »

    Tech at Night: The Internet’s dangerous, but the NSA is there to help

    Tech at Night: The Internet's dangerous, but the NSA is there to help

    I’ve said it pretty regularly in this space: the Internet isn’t for kids. However the scary thing is that even if you don’t realize you’re putting your kids online, you really might be, as those parents with an online service-based nanny cam found out. Be careful out there. NSA does the dirty work, but there’s only so much they can do.

    My Friend Lucy

    You will have to humor me in this as I take up the front page of RedState for a personal post and some language that does not normally appear here at RedState. I was supposed to be in Washington last night for a party. But we had a family matter come up, then I got put in a cast for daring to walk barefoot over | Read More »

    continued from yesterday Grant received Lee’s message after midnight and replied early in the morning giving his terms for surrender: General R.E. Lee, Commanding C.S.A.: Your note of last evening in reply to mine of the same date, asking the conditions on which I will accept the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, is just received.
