John Kasich: liberal flavor of the day
I never thought I’d write two blog posts on John Kasich as a presidential contender in my RedState career but now I find myself writing two such posts in two days. Let’s start with the basics. Kasich’s polling average is about 4%. This is basically unchanged from his average before the debates. In a 17-person field his share should be about 6% so even in | Read More »
August 15, 1945. V-J Day
TO THE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE IMPERIAL FORCES: Three years and eight months have elapsed since we declared war on the United States and Britain. During this time our beloved men of the army and navy, sacrificing their lives, have fought valiantly on disease-stricken and barren lands and on tempestuous waters in the blazing sun, and of this we are deeply grateful. Now | Read More »
Trump Loves Him Some Campaign Finance Reform
Anyone who pays serious attention to Donald Trump knows that, the more he opens his mouth, the more he exposes his phony conservative credentials. There are numerous examples of this, but one of the most recent concerns his comments on campaign finance reform in New Hampshire. Our friends at Digitas Daily have the clip: There’s actually a couple of things to discuss here, but let’s | Read More »
Why ‘Has Trump peaked?’ is Exactly the Wrong Question
Everybody’s stressing and speculating on whether Donald Trump has peaked. Jonah Goldberg expresses hope that he has, writing “It’s obviously too soon to tell for sure, but I think we’ve reached Peak Trump.” Neil Stevens agrees with the “too soon to tell” but isn’t so sure there won’t be more up in Trump, citing one RCP poll showing a decline as insufficient data. But the | Read More »
Hillary Jokes As 58% Say She Knowingly Lied About Her Emails
A new Fox News poll, released Friday, finds that a 58% majority thinks that Hillary Clinton “knowingly lied” when she declared in her March press conference at the United Nations that no emails on her private server contained classified information. Only 33% think there is “another explanation” for federal government investigators determining top secret information was in fact on Hillary’s email server. Worse a 54% majority | Read More »
Colorado court outlaws religious freedom
Anyone who can still argue that homosexual marriage, and the coming fight over make homosexuals special snowflakes under the law, isn’t a direct attack on religious freedom really needs to increase their meds. I’ll let David Harsanyi of The Federalist set the stage: Just in case you need a refresher: Back in 2012, a baker in the Denver suburb of Lakewood was asked by a | Read More »
StemExpress gives Planned Parenthood the heave-ho

Today, StemExpress announced it will not longer do business with Planned Parenthood: StemExpress, one of the tissue companies that works with Planned Parenthood, is cutting its | Read More »

Selective, Biased, Intentional Editing That Didn’t Change The Truth One Tiny, Fractional, Slight Little Bit
Twelve hours. That’s how much footage is currently available online from the Center for Medical Progress in their comprehensive undercover exposé of potentially criminal and certainly despicable practices taking place at the group beloved by liberals and Donald Trump alike: Planned Parenthood. Twelve. Hours. It is half a day’s worth of horror and misery and depression and appalling behavior. Over 720 minutes of callousness, dead | Read More »

Dr. Ben Carson, fetal tissue research and dimwitted slander
I don’t know much about Ben Carson except that I can’t imagine voting for him in the primaries but if he becomes the nominee it will be the first time since 2004 that I have cast a ballot for president without getting the dry heaves. As Erick notes earlier, the left has finally taken notice of him as his poll numbers climb and now they | Read More »
Has Trump peaked? One poll doesn’t tell us that.
The Real Clear Politics 2016 nomination poll chart appears to be showing that Donald Trump has peaked, and is on the way down. But if you dig past the pretty picture, it’s not clear that’s the case.
Iraqi Report: US Special Forces now in direct combat with ISIS in Iraq
As one of my bosses in the Army was fond of saying, “We ain’t got time to do it right but we always got time to do it over.” Now four years after Obama and Hillary Clinton contrived a reason to give our troops the bum’s rush from a won war in Iraq, we are back in combat there. Not just with aircraft but with | Read More »
I Don’t Care For Women’s “Health”
As a pro-life conservative female, I’ve been labeled a “woman-hater” many times. Not because I actually hate my own kind, but because I share the horrible opinion that unborn life is of great worth, and should be protected from execution by way of abortion. So naturally, that means I hate females. And of course, such an opinion should be met with the worst kind of | Read More »
