Why Did Obama Just Give the South China Sea to the Chinese Communist Regime?
Not content to diminish American power on his watch, Barack Obama seems dead set on a course of action to ensure that he locks in that sadly reduced America for his successor. For some years the Chinese have been aggressively pushing their influence into the South China Sea. This is not some obscure region. Forty percent of the world’s trade and fifty percent of all | Read More »
Politico Outright Lies about Ben Carson
UPDATE: Politico has begun stealth editing the story in question, removing tons of the most incendiary claims without making any public indication that they have corrected the story at all. This is the mark of a junior league, unethical news organization, and stands as conclusive proof that their story is crap and they know it. I’ve been critical – harshly so – of Ben Carson’s | Read More »
I Wonder Why the Pentagon is Upset
The Pentagon is a wee bit angry at the White House. I mean, war is literally their job, and the White House has been talking about and doing war stuff without them. They don’t feel included. “There’s a level of dissatisfaction among the uniformed military that I’ve never seen in my time here,” said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman in an interview. “For some of | Read More »
Donald Trump Drunk-Tweets Insults At Ben Carson
I don’t for a minute think Donald Trump personally hit the “Send” button on this tweet but it belies a lack of discipline in the campaign and has the unmistakable odor of desperation about it: For the past few days, Trump has been going after Ben Carson on his rather exotic view of the purpose of Egyptian pyramids: White House hopeful Donald Trump on Thursday | Read More »
A Surprising October Jobs Report
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to review the surprising October jobs report, and three ways to change the air travel experience. Then journalist D.C. McAllister is here to geek out about the Battlestar Galactica TV show.

Here’s Why You Can’t Just Take the Cop to Court
Over the course of the last couple of years, we have had a number of videos and stories here at RedState about cops grossly overreacting to having their authority challenged. We’ve had videos where cops have beaten, tased, and dragged out of cars people who were doing things like demanding to know why they had been stopped, asking for the officer’s badge number, trying to | Read More »
The Jeb Bush Campaign Circles the Drain As Donors Flock to Marco Rubio
It looks like the Jeb Bush strategy — a strategy that seems to come from Right to Rise super PAC boss Mike Murphy — of attacking is really paying off. Jeb Bush’s decision to attack old friend and new rival is backfiring, pushing important supporters to criticize the campaign’s tactics and driving one of Florida’s top fundraisers to officially quit and signal a shift in | Read More »
The Attorney General of the State of New York has begun action against the ExxonMobil Corporation to, in the words of The New York Times, “determine whether the company lied to the public about the risks of climate change or to investors about how such risks might hurt the oil business.” To the people excited about this prospect, this investigation is the opening salvo in | Read More »
And then there were 4: the pundits are right, it’s Cruz and Rubio
Mike Huckabee tweeted “We are months away from actual votes being cast and neither the pundits nor the press will decide this election, the people will.” This after he was unceremoniously dumped from the main 9pm stage in the Fox Business News debate to be held Nov. 10 in Milwaukee. I like Huckabee. I’ve met him a couple of times, and found him to be | Read More »
Why is the Islamic State treating Turkey as an ally?
The Islamic State is an unrecognized country bordered by Iraq, Syria, Turkey, and the Kurdish-controlled regions south of the Turkish border. The Islamic State is actively fighting the governments of Syria, Iraq, and the Kurds. However in Turkey, when the Islamic State bombed Ankara, they bombed the socialist, pro-Kurdish parties, who were protesting in opposition to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his crypto-Islamist Justice and | Read More »
Hitting the Brakes on the Ben Carson Story
I’ve struck through the original piece here. It is looking more and more like the details of Ben Carson’s West Point story are more nuanced. In 2013, he said he was offered a scholarship to West Point. The Politico story centers on Carson claiming he “applied and was accepted.” It is true, Carson never applied and was never accepted to West Point. The Politico’s representation | Read More »
Obama Administration Finally Rejects the Keystone Pipeline
What took them so long? The Obama Administration finally rejected the Keystone XL pipeline on a Friday when everyone had already moved on to other things. Sure, Warren Buffet and other Obama donors will benefit because they own trains that will be used to transport the stuff. Sure, the EPA will stay busy with train derailments and natural disasters, etc. But why now? Well, Hillary | Read More »
Ben Carson: The “Good Guy” Who Isn’t Presidential
The Right regularly decries emotionalism, but is often guilty of it, too. Falling for the cult of personality is not just a phenomenon on the Left. It is seen among conservatives, and is, quite obviously, making an appearance this election cycle. In this round, on the crowded stage of GOP candidates, the “good guy” is none other than Dr. Ben Carson. He has an incredibly | Read More »
Lindsey Graham and George Pataki Punted From GOP Undercard Debate
Lindsey and George, we hardly knew ye. Out are Senator Lindsey Graham, John McCain’s Mini-Me, and former New York Governor George Pataki. Next week’s GOP presidential undercard debate just lost its best comic. U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham did not make the cut for the early debate Tuesday in Milwaukee on Fox Business News after failing to win 1 percent of support in four recent polls. The Seneca, S.C., | Read More »
