Hollywood Hypocrisy on Guns
If you didn’t know, Hollywood has yet again sprung into action producing an “all hip celebrities on deck” ad demanding gun control. I’m sure Washington will take it as seriously as the last one.In any event, via Brad Thor’s twitter feed, I see that someone has put together a genius though not safe for work, video that puts all these do gooder celebrities calling for | Read More »
Compromise reached on… farm bill.
If you were asking yourself Just how much of a kabuki theater is what’s going on in Congress right now? – well, wonder no more. From USA Today: Top leaders on both the Senate and House Agriculture committees announced a deal on Sunday to extend the 2008 farm bill by a year, a deal that could avoid a surge in market prices for milk and | Read More »
Muslim Brotherhood reaches out to Hezbollah.
Tell me again how marvelous it is that we encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood to take over in Egypt: “In a dramatic policy shift, Egypt will seek to forge “tight” relations with Hezbollah, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy revealed in a candid interview published Saturday in Lebanon’s Daily Star.” Such ‘tight’ relations will presumably include Hezbollah’s right to keep getting ready for that armed conflict | Read More »
Just Do It
One of the biggest problems on Capitol Hill these days is that the leaders of both parties are calling all the shots without input from the rest of Congress until the end. Certainly there comes a point when there are too many cooks in the kitchen, but the purpose of the legislature is to legislate and the legislators cannot do their job because of their | Read More »
Lisa Jackson forced out of EPA.
Ostensible reason: [Lisa] Jackson, 50, a chemical engineer by training and a mom of two teenagers, offered no reason for her resignation other than saying she’s ready for “new challenges, time with my family and new opportunities to make a difference.” She said she was leaving the EPA “confident the ship is sailing in the right direction.” Actual reason: This month, at the prodding of congressional | Read More »
Setting the Record Straight: Adam Lanza Did use the Bushmaster AR-15
The media did a horrible job getting its facts and figures straight during and after the tragedy in Connecticut. Gun control advocates have seized on a lot of information and ignored a lot of information in an effort to push their agenda.But I’m seeing gun rights supporters do the same. Most troubling, over the past week on radio filling in for Neal Boortz I’ve heard | Read More »
Desperate Screams of the Press Clowns
If you ever needed a reminder of how pathetic the cast of clowns who make up the reporters and journalists in the media is, look no further than the David Gregory story and the reaction to it from the press corps. It is a non-story to them. Glenn Thrush, debating this with me on twitter notes, “The more [you] talk about the fake Gregory story | Read More »
Neil Abercrombie ignores Daniel Inouye’s dying wish, picks Brian Schatz for Hawaii Senate.
Just as a thought experiment imagine what would happen if the following scenario played out… A minority Republican Senator passes away. Choosing a successor is the responsibility of his state’s (white) (Republican) governor. The late Senator in question had formally made a request to the governor that a particular qualified individual (who also happens to be a minority) succeed him. The governor then proceeds to | Read More »
Gun Control, Gun Rights, Gun Politics and Newtown: Part I of II
The school shooting atrocity in Newtown, Connecticut has, predictably, touched off another round of the perennial gun-control debate. Especially for parents of young children (my youngest is the same age as most of the victims), the horror of the shootings is almost beyond description, and tends to make rational discussion impossible. And also unseemly, as Jonah Goldberg has explained. More to the point, this is | Read More »
That Other Issue
For five and a half years I was an indigent criminal defense attorney as one area of my law practice.I never once represented an innocent person. They were all guilty. I never had a criminal trial. They were all willing to take deals. Most of them were black men between the ages of 18 and 35 and their crimes most often involved drugs.Today is the | Read More »
Obama to leave Hawaii early for more fiscal cliff political theater
In an obviously preplanned propaganda ploy, President Obama will leave his Hawaiian vacation “early” returning to Washington to engage in more fiscal cliff political theater. When Fox News first reported Obama’s travel plans, we were reminded that Obama let it slip last week that he would return this week: An administration official tells Fox it is now “likely” the President flies back to Washington late | Read More »

David Gregory should be arrested for violating DC’s gun law.
Background: last Sunday on Meet The Press David Gregory brandished a 30 round ammunition magazine while lecturing interrogating interviewing NRA head Wayne LaPierre. The problem is, however, that the mere possession of this item is in point of fact illegal in the District of Columbia, where Meet The Press is filmed. The police have been notified, and they are “investigating.” I’m not sure what they | Read More »
From all of us here at RedState to all of you, we wish you a very Merry Christmas! — Erick The Gospel of Luke 2:1-20 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town | Read More »
Praying for the President This Christmas
Ligon Duncan makes some sound points though many might not like to consider them. I actually posted this way back in 2008 when Mr. Duncan originally wrote it. But this Christmas Eve I think it is worth posting again. For those Christians who are more dismayed than overjoyed about the prospects of an Obama presidency, there should be a remembrance that as our President, Barack | Read More »
