All Roads Lead Through Rubio
Consensus opinion from last week is that Carly Fiorina won the second debate – a sentiment that I basically agree with. The scant polling evidence we have since the debate seems to confirm that Fiorina helped her cause dramatically with her performance. And there’s a reason for that: As the newcomer to the stage, and as a candidate who had been involved in a recent, | Read More »
Man Buns, Microfedoras, and the End Times
In RedState’s ongoing and less-discussed mission to take part in cultural discussions, I’d like to open the floor to one of the dangers of the modern era: Man Buns. Don’t know what a man bun is? Awesome! Exit this post and never return. Go ahead. I encourage it. Still here? Okay. Let’s do this. The only way to really dive into this issue is to go | Read More »
The Scott Walker Autopsies
I’ve been spending the better part of two hours reading and re-reading what are essentially autopsies of Scott Walker’s failed presidential bid. 71 days in the race, early fundraising successes and a groundswell of support fizzled away. Virtually every piece out there comes to the same conclusion, that it was ultimately the cash problem that killed the campaign. And, like a really good political drama, | Read More »
Karl Rove Got Planned Parenthood Its Komen Money Back & Wants You to Fund It Too
Karl Rove clearly, well, and truly does not want elected President of the United States. And he also does not want to see Planned Parenthood defunded. People forget one important snippet from the saga of the Susan G. Komen Foundation cutting off funds to Planned Parenthood. Having cut off the funds to Planned Parenthood and facing public backlash, Nancy Brinker at Komen reserved course. Georgia’s | Read More »
Debbie Wasserman Schultz goes full-metal crazy pants
Democrats are in full panic mode. Yesterday, TPM led an attack on Jeb Bush for using the word “retard” not to describe Josh Marshall, though that would have been completely legitimate, but in the context of slowing progress. Today they are denouncing Marco Rubio as a closet Nazi or something. What you are about to read is not parody. In this Republican field, the sad | Read More »
Trump done with Fox because…Momma, they’re picking on me again!
GOP Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has decided he’s done with Fox News. Again. I know this because it was on Twitter. .@FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2015 Once again the blame can be laid squarely on the feet of | Read More »
Obamacare still not popular, so of course Hillary Clinton will defend it.
Obamacare is unpopular, so naturally Hillary Clinton is trying to get in on defending it. Such a keen thinker, that one…

Now We Know Why the President Still Pretends to Be a Christian
Well, we have the answer now for why Barack Obama continues to play at being a Christian, though dripping with contempt for the church in his actions and policies. Pew Research Center asked people to rate religions. Turns out that black protestants take a very dim view of atheists. In fact, only 30% of black protestants have favorable views of atheists. The President has needed | Read More »
Maybe Hillary Clinton Really Did Wipe that Server with a Cloth
It looks like Hillary Clinton’s efforts to unilaterally determine which emails from her private server she would turn over are going… well, about as well as pretty much every other effort managed by Hillary Clinton has gone. Which is to say, about as well as an ongoing dumpster fire: The FBI has recovered personal and work-related e-mails from the private computer server used by Hillary | Read More »
Ben Carson’s Controversial Comments, and Scott Walker’s Sudden Exit
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss Carly Fiorina’s post debate bounce and if Trump has staying power. Then Alex Isenstadt details Scott Walker’s exit from the race. Finally David Pietrusza talks about the death of Yogi Berra and the Pope’s visit.

Finally. A claim so stupid that even @Voxdotcom won’t buy it
We’ve seen it all at Vox.com. The bridge from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. The missing everglades. The American Revolution as a really bad idea. The Hong Kong democracy protesters using “hands up, don’t shoot.” The routine and virulent anti-Semitism. But yesterday, for a few blessed hours, Vox.com redeemed itself. It all started with an attempt by TalkingPointsMemo to start a leftist gang-bang | Read More »
Muslim and homosexual bakers decline to make cakes. No one cares.
One of the things that Muslim and homosexual rights activists have in common is that while they use the cry of “equal rights” what they are really campaigning for is a position of privilege where they have rights that are available to no one else. In the aftermath of Ben Carson’s comments on his view (and mine) that Islam is incompatible with the presidency, Jonathan | Read More »
Obama administration condones child-rape
I had discussion with a friend of mine over the weekend. We go back a long ways, having served together a company commanders in the same battalion. Naturally, politics came up and we both agreed that now we easily believe allegations against the Obama administration that we would have laughed at and dismissed out of hand as crazy talk back in 2009. This is one | Read More »
Here’s Why I Donated to the Club For Growth
If you want to find the most pro-life members of Congress, you need to find who has the highest score from the Club For Growth, not National Right to Life Committee. Why? Because back in the day, National Right to Life decided to whore itself to congressional Republicans while Club For Growth has stood firm for liberty. Consequently, National Right to Life was in favor | Read More »
BuzzFeed snivels about being denied press credentials for Papal visit
BuzzFeed, in addition to being an odious boil on the ass of journalist, is one of the most hostile to religion, and dishonestly so, sites that purport to be news sites. So when they applied for credentials they fully expected the Washington Archdiocese to go along. Back in January, reporter Ellie Hall first inquired about credentials for the pope’s visit, which was the first in | Read More »
