Dave Weigel and the Mystery of the 8-Year-Old Transgendered Kid
The caper started innocently enough. Listicle site and national joke Buzzfeed posted an article purporting to display an “adorable” note written by an 8-year-old who is allegedly transgender. Dave Weigel, as a relatively normal person who’s been around 8 year olds before, asked what many might consider to be a naturally occurring question: How much do 8-year olds know about their sexual identity? Hell, | Read More »
What Issues Should Republicans Discuss?
What issues are falling through the cracks? What issues need to be discussed more? Those were questions raised by RedState readers and we asked the GOP Presidential candidates what they thought. Here is what they said.
Roger Ailes Confronts the Evil While the Also Rans Cower in Fear
It is times like this that I am very proud of Fox News, where I am a political contributor. The national news media, right now collectively apologizing for Brian Williams, is collectively attacking Roger Ailes and Fox News for showing the ISIS video of the gruesome burning of the Jordanian pilot. It is not a coincidence that the very same networks attacking Roger Ailes and | Read More »
Brian Williams’s magical Iraq combat experience
The spray-tanned, blow-dried face of NBC News is in the spotlight. But one he’d prefer to be out of. It seems that for a decade he’s been flogging a story that a helicopter he was commuting on in Iraq in 2003 was shot down. Williams made the claim while presenting NBC coverage of the tribute to the retired command sergeant major at the Rangers game | Read More »
On Fox News’ decision to show the IS death cult in action.
Let’s just establish a few things about  Fox News’ decision to show Islamic State’s (IS) ritual human sacrifice of downed Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh. The Fox News link is here. It does, in fact, show, a graphic ritual human sacrifice done by evil death cultists. The professional-level quality of the video editing confirms that this was done deliberately, ritually, and as part of a larger plan. | Read More »
Democrats may boycott Netanyahu speech… or not
This really isn’t news. I mean they are Democrats. And boycotting American allies is just how they roll. Politico does the stenography job for the White House in a story titled Democrats might skip Benjamin Netanyahu speech Dozens of House Democrats are privately threatening to skip the March 3 address, according to lawmakers and aides, in what’s become the lowest point of a relationship between | Read More »
Rand Paul and Pandering to the Paranoid
Part of the problem with the Internet age is that it’s difficult to have anything approaching a nuanced discussion anymore. This is especially true when virtually everyone, regardless of their intellect, expertise, or judgment, has access to a repository of perfectly reasonable-sounding people who will say anything. If you type “are vaccines safe” into your preferred Internet search engine, you will find that there are | Read More »
Green Card Harry and The EB-5 Program
The Cronies Are Coming! World News Videos | ABC World News Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 8% represents everything that Las Vegas, Nevada symbolizes to an absolute, pristine perfection. He is loud, tacky, garish, disingenuous, malicious, mobbed-up, preys on his country like an intestinal parasite, is hateful to those with whom he disagrees and believes he is utterly exempt | Read More »
VENGEANCE AGAINST ISIS: Jordan Executes Terrorists, Including Female Wannabe Suicide Bomber al-Rishawi
Good. In the predawn hours Wednesday, Jordan executed two al Qaeda in Iraq-associated prisoners by hanging, in response to the brutal slaying of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh yesterday. One of the two jihadis executed was would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, who is the woman that was going to be exchanged for al-Kaseasbeh. After the murder of al-Kaseasbeh, Jordan quickly vowed revenge for his death. | Read More »
What About the Military
While in Iowa for Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 78%‘s Freedom Summit, RedState asked the 2016 Presidential candidates about the U.S. military. In particular, we asked them what the future military should look like and also how the military will need to balance cyber-war, Islamic extremists, and traditional military threats. Here’s what they had to say.
Wow. @ed_kilgore & the Washington Monthly pretend that Scott Walker may not have gotten death threats.
Now, I get that the Washington Monthly is a political stroke magazine for progressives. That’s fine. But even the sad fetishists that read it are still actual human beings.

Obama administration punts on enforcing obamacare. Again. #obamacare
So the White House is, yet again, delaying a critical part of Obamacare. This monstrosity has far too many critical parts, you know what I mean?

John Judis: About That Inevitable, Permanent Majority for the Democrats
A few days ago, John Judis, the co-author of the book on every liberal’s bookshelf, The Emerging Democratic Majority, took to the pages of National Journal to write an article called The Emerging Republican Advantage. At the time, some commentators, including me, hailed the onset of an enduring Democratic majority. And the arguments in defense of this view did seem to be backed by persuasive evidence. | Read More »
RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings: Week 1
Hello and welcome to a new and (hopefully) weekly segment at RedState, the Weekly 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings. Each week on Tuesday, I will be compiling this list based on a “secret sauce” formula that I made up that factors in polling data, fundraising information, news items of the week, organization/staff readiness, and more subjective things like “momentum” and “buzz,” which don’t really exist | Read More »
Chris Christie embraces Obama’s slur of pro-life movement
Obama and his followers have long been fond of slurring the pro-life movement by saying pro-lifers don’t care about children or people once they’ve been born. This, of course, is patent nonsense. If you look at the organizations and the people who support the larger pro-life movement you generally find the same organizations and people actively involved in adoption, foster care, elder care, helping the | Read More »
