Sorry Children Of America, Transgenders Are More Important Than You
The US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights made a startling announcement Monday, setting a dangerous precedent for minor children in public schools. After a two year investigation, they have found that a Chicago area school district is in violation of Title IX, which is a federal law prohibiting discrimination in schools based on sex.

The Legacy Media is Still Fighting the Last War (and Losing)
For about 24 hours after last week’s CNBC debate debacle, the legacy media had a collective moment of refreshing honesty. “Boy, that really sucked,” everyone agreed. Confirming what everyone with a pair of eyes and a brain believed, even liberal members of the media like Bill Maher said, “Jeez, these Republicans have a point.” However, this week, the old guard of the legacy media has | Read More »

Head of Hillary Clinton’s Rapid Response Team is a Meth Abuser
In a move to make over a very low-performing communications operation, Hillary Clinton decided to bring in some new blood. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s press shop, the focal point of her campaign over the summer as she tried to grapple with questions about her use of private email while at the State Department, is adding staff members and reshuffling existing personnel as it prepares for the | Read More »
Real Clear Politics confirms Ben Carson is the national GOP Frontrunner
Over a week ago I declared Ben Carson the national GOP frontrunner. I saw a string of polls growing, and while the lagging indicators still gave Donald Trump the edge, I was confident enough to say Carson was on top. Now the lagging indicator is in: the Real Clear Politics poll average now says Ben Carson is winning the polls. Not Trump. Carson.
The Cruz v. Rubio Denouement Draws Closer
Here at RedState, we have been saying that the race would ultimately come down to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% v. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% for months. The early polling from last week’s CNBC debate shows that we have moved one significant step closer to that reality. A new Q-poll was released today which is the first that | Read More »
Unborn Black Lives Do Not Matter To #BlackLivesMatter
In the post-Ferguson world, protests from and coverage of the #BlackLivesMatter movement has been nonstop. But Black Lives Matter, ever eager to promote their cause, purposefully leaves out one type of individual: the unborn in their community. It would seem that black lives matter to their own, but only those on this side of the womb. Renee Bracey Sherman, a reproductive activist (aka pro-abort), recently | Read More »

.@Gizmodo Shoots Self In Behind Over Gun Safety Post
It is always hilarious when leftwing girly-boys who couldn’t pick a shotgun out of a line-up criticize others for firearms safety violations. The latest entrant is some assclown named Wes Siler writing at that hotbed of gun sports Gizmodo. He makes this claim: Hey @TedCruz, you’re holding your gun backwards: https://t.co/orXK3FVXOZ pic.twitter.com/gpvCgKFbYU — Wes Siler (@IndefiniteWild) November 3, 2015 Seriously, you can almost hear this | Read More »
While We’re Lost in The ‘Patent Troll’ Freakout, ‘Reformers’ Will Eviscerate Private Property Rights
The small and dwindling contingent in favor of the terrible, patent-smashing bills being considered in Congress suffer from an obsessive fetish – “patent trolls.” It’s at once a mantra – and a Pavlovian fervor-inducer. Just say “patent troll” in front of any member of this tiny cohort – and watch them freak out. The American Spectator has been a gracious, serial host to one such | Read More »
Matt Bevin Wins. Barack Obama’s Democratic Party Loses Again.
“It’s only a matter of time before Democrats blame their losses on climate change in Syria.”George Bush continues to be a more successful politician than Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. In addition to winning the Texas Governor’s Mansion twice, George Bush did something Barack Obama and Bill Clinton could not do — win the Presidency twice without seeing his party completely wipe out.

Another Data Point to be Ignored That Political Reporting is B.S.
Matt Bevin won Kentucky by EIGHT points. It was not even close. Every poll had it very close and many predicted the Democrats would win. Kentucky is not alone. Throughout the nation, polling has been incredibly flawed. Heck, it has been flawed internationally. Look at the British election last year where no one saw the Tories getting an outright majority, which they did. The polling | Read More »
Perverts and the Mentally Ill Lose in Houston, TX
In Houston, TX, perverts and the mentally ill worked together with the gay rights lobby to let men use women’s bathrooms. They called anyone who disagreed with them “bigots.” They harassed preachers. The Mayor of Houston, an aggressive gay rights activist, demanded preachers’ hand over their sermons. Tonight, the people of Houston fought back and rejected the attempt to allow perverts, the mentally ill, liars, | Read More »
John Kasich: “I’m Kind of Like Jesus, Only Better.”
John Kasich was in Iowa today, doing his best impersonation of Homer Simpson’s dad (as usual), and explaining (as usual) how he’s great and the people who question his massive increases in government spending hate Jesus. That’s when things got a bit… weird: The Republican hopeful made the comparison during a campaign stop at Loras College, where about 50 people were in attendance. The former | Read More »

It looks, at this writing, as if Matt Bevin has won the Kentucky Governor’s race, a race he was trailing in the polls all the way to the end (Ace of Spades Decision Desk HQ called the race a while ago, and now the AP has as well). Bevin’s upset win raises seven questions worth pondering as we survey the political landscape: 1. How bad | Read More »
