ABC is just one of the many reasons my wife and I no longer let the kids watch television in our house. The network has decided to politicize The Muppets. First, Miss Piggy went on MSNBC to declare herself pro-choice and pro-everything as she got a feminism award. Now they’ve got the pro-abortion pig in Time Magazine discussing monogamy. This all comes on the heels | Read More »
If you were to take Jay Caruso (formerly of Pocket Full of Liberty, currently at Legal Insurrection and someone you’ll be seeing around here more often), F. Bill McMorris (of the Washington Free Beacon and RedState’s own “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Friends”), and me, and put us in a podcast about politics, pop culture, sports… Well, what you’d get is Beer, Booze, and BS. | Read More »
Get ready. The Senate Republicans are about to engage in one of their regular bouts of “failure theater,” that favorite show of theirs where they pound their chests, declare their loyalty to the cause, and arrange the game so they are guaranteed to lose while telling you how hard they fought. Just check out this quote from Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)63%: | Read More »
Scheduled to start at 8:30 PM Eastern time: C-SPAN is live-streaming the Donald Trump foreign policy speech here. I will be watching it, and I’ll let you know what I thought of it after it’s done. I imagine that it won’t be dull, at least. Updates after the fold.
The steady drip-drip of the Clinton email scandal is taking a toll on Hillary’s presidential ambitions. Since the scandal became widely known back in April, Clinton has lost over a third of the support she had to be the Democrat presidential candidate. Right now we know that Hillary’s email server was not “wiped” and we are fairly sure there is a back up server in | Read More »
Promoted from the diaries by Leon. . . “We Chinese love peace” beamed Xi Jinping, aka ‘Big Daddy’ Xi, as 12,000 troops, tanks and nuclear missiles were paraded at the opening of China’s commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Second World War. Despite ‘Big Daddy’ Xi’s attempt to paint 21st century China as a committed leader of peaceful development that would “never seek hegemony | Read More »
The Center for Medical Progress has released a new video today, right as Congress is gearing up for a potential shutdown fight, which once again shows high ranking Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted baby parts. You can watch the video here: Although this video is not as graphic and gut-wrenching as previous CMP videos, it is probably the most damning video | Read More »
Promoted from the diaries by Leon… Normally, I detest those debate questions that ask the candidates for either a show of hands or a one-word answer. However, Bret Baier’s first question at the FOX debate, “Will you promise to support the eventual nominee and NOT run as an independent,” definitely was right on point, and stirred things up, to say the least. The GOP candidates | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Paul Bonicelli to discuss the migrant crisis in Europe and how the continent can absorb millions of refugees, then Melissa Quinn from the Daily Signal talks about civil asset forfeiture, and finally Dennis Greene and I review week 1 of the NFL season.
There is a new Center for Medical Progress video out today showing, conclusively, that Planned Parenthood makes a significant amount of money from selling parts from dead babies, that they rely on it financially, and that they are terrified of the story on that revenue stream getting out. This happens while there is a fight over Planned Parenthood funding brewing on Capitol Hill and [mc_name | Read More »
I run into people all the time who ask me, “How did you get involved in RedState? How did you get on the front page?” Well, the answer is simple. I started off as a reader of RedState – clicked the “register” button that you see on the front page, created an account, and started my own “diary.” Within the course of a few months, | Read More »
Looks like the flopsweat is setting in on the Clinton campaign. Her precipitous fall in the polls, combined with the growing strength of Bernie Sanders, has her big money donors and the Democrat establishment panicked. As they can’t do anything about the things that are dragging Clinton down — her criminality, her inability to utter the truth, her epic failure in every office she has | Read More »
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)92% has now hired another Mitt Romney team member. This time it is Lanhee Chen, who was Romney’s policy director. He’s got Romney’s New Hampshire guy on his PAC team. Rubio also hired Rich Beeson, who had been the RNC’s political director guy sending contracts back to his former colleagues at FLS, before leaving to go ruin Romney’s | Read More »
Early on during Trump’s campaign, when the Trump phenomenon was still new and fresh, the media was already trying to tie Donald Trump to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)100%, without much of a reason. I can still remember how, at the RedState Gathering, the media followed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)100% around after his speech basically demanding a comment | Read More »
