This week on the RedState Weekly Briefing Thomas LaDuke, Joe Cunningham, Caleb Howe, and I discuss the developing GOP wave, the Ebola quarantine and the White House push back, the Democratic assault on religious liberty and religion itself, and more. We should be live just after 7 pm Eastern. If you would like to join in the discussion, ask questions, or get to the links | Read More »
It is often said that the last acceptable prejudice is anti-Catholicism (though being anti-Christian and anti-male are certainly in the running) and proof of this is on display in Washington state. In the state senate contest between Democrat Shari Song and Demcrat-turned-Republican Mark Miloscia to represent the Federal Way (a city between Seattle and Tacoma) constituency, Miloscia has been attacked for being a Catholic and, well, | Read More »
In an interesting op-ed in the Washington Post, Jesse Richman and David Earnest of Old Dominion University (my alma mater), say that not only can vote by non-citizens determine election outcomes — and may very well have done that — but that current Voter ID laws probably don’t offer deterrence. How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both | Read More »
For reasons that can only be ascribed to politics (my gosh, I’m getting so tired of prefacing every single thing this bunch of clowns does with the same phrase), Eric Holder and the wannabe-fascists in his Justice Department are carrying out a jihad on behalf of vote theft. They are doing this by contesting Voter ID laws that are being passed in many states despite | Read More »
I have noticed some wild variations in polling in places like South Dakota, Kentucky, and Georgia. Places that should not be in play seem to be in play. What makes it so bizarre is that in these states President Obama remains deeply unpopular. The national polling should flow down into state level polling, but it does not seem to be. In particular, the Georgia polling | Read More »
Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution. Socialism’s goal was | Read More »
OK, let’s set the scene: [Lynne] Messinger said she spoke to a clerk at the desk, and explained that she had a California driver’s license. She has houses in both California and Texas and goes back and forth between the two, but decided several years ago to switch her voting residency to Texas. The clerk left for a few minutes, then told her to take | Read More »
Tonight was the last of the gubernatorial debates in Colorado. Hickenlooper, who is ahead of Bob Beauprez by .2% in the RCP average, finished off his debate series with yet another blooper. The incumbent democrat had what may be considered in Akin moment. When Bob Beauprez brought up the fact that under Gov. Hickenlooper’s watch regulations were put in place that allow sex offenders to | Read More »
What are we to do with this latest school shooting tragedy? Unlike the killings in Oklahoma City and Ottawa, Canada, this was no terrorist or self-proclaimed warrior carrying out a religious fatwa. Jaylen Fryberg was a 14-year-old boy. He could be my son, or anyone’s. This is really a tragedy, every bit as much as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost two years ago. Except that by all accounts, Jaylen Fryberg was | Read More »
I know that I wrote this up already, but I did before I got some critical information on the subject. To recap: this afternoon, [Brad] [Oops! - ML] Woodhouse (chief minion of the rabid Democratic lackeys over at American Bridge) thought that he had done his part for Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn by peddling out a fake story that Republican candidate David Perdue had signed a | Read More »
“Tensions are rising in Ferguson as new details about the fatal shooting of Michael Brown emerge,” reports CBS News in St. Louis. That would seem odd to the proverbial man from Mars, hopping out of his flying saucer and getting up to speed on the crisis, because the new details reveal that what they were protesting over didn’t happen. Rejoice, good people of Ferguson! Michael Brown | Read More »
It’s time for a break up. If you haven’t already seen, Sarah Palin has endorsed Bill Walker and Byron Mallott’s Independent-Democrat “Unity” ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor. Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, I’m finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but | Read More »
The fight for justice is never the easy road, and it doesn’t always win the first round.
Yesterday a federal district court dismissed two lawsuits (at least a majority of the claims) brought on behalf of conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS.
Unfortunately, the court’s ruling is based on what we believe is a mistaken interpretation of the law that would allow corruption to continue unfettered at the highest levels of federal government and deny justice to those who had their constitutional rights violated.
