Do you take George Soros’s money? Congratulations: you’re pro-fracking!
Works like this: George Soros bought into Pioneer Natural Resources. Billionaire fund manager George Soros now owns 964,000 shares of Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD), one of the biggest players in the Texas Permian Basin.

Mary Landrieu expected for Energy chair, #Keystone approval, defeat in re-election.
Some people might think that this news might disappoint me, given that I am of course a partisan hack. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana will probably become the chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee early next year, giving the gavel to a lawmaker with deep ties to home-state oil producers and refiners. The shift stems from President Barack Obama’s nomination of Democratic | Read More »
Jesse Jackson to shake down A&E over Duck’s ‘white privilege’ Dynasty
That’s not a misprint. Even in the Age of non-white-Obama, with non-white Susan Rice privileged to be promoted to National Security Advisor after perpetrating the Benghazi-was-caused-by-a-video-lie while U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.; the Most un-Reverend Jesse Jackson (much as does his Sharpton clone) still sees America as controlled by racist Whites. Maybe he missed the last two elections in which a 70% Caucasian electorate gave | Read More »
Power means privilege
When the first big stories of ObamaCare “doc shock” began to circulate, and it dawned on Americans that they might not be able to keep their doctors under Barack Obama’s health care scheme – contrary to another of his absolutely unambiguous, often-repeated promises – Zeke Emanuel was sent out to conduct spin control. He might not have been the best choice for the job, because | Read More »
Chamber to Spend $50 Million Defending Unpopular Status Quo
Here’s is a thought for a slow vacation week. Congress’s approval rating has dipped into the single digits. Anyone with any intellectual honesty – whether liberal or conservative – should agree that we need wholesale change in the ranks of leadership in both parties. Yet the Chamber of [Government-Run] Commerce is prepared to spend $50 million in order to protect the status quo. The Wall | Read More »

All too many want to play it safe, some think talking is enough, think preaching to the choir is enough or compromise, this is all wrong. You will be put to test on how well you live up to your own book of rules and more, there are groups out there looking to kill you and they are not going to play nice.
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 »
Why December 25th?
One of the most popular theories and commonly taught explanations for why Christmas is on Dec. 25th is because the early church placed Christian holidays at times of Roman celebration to co-opt the local pagan festivals.Christians placed Christmas on Dec. 25th to co-opt Saturnalia, the mid-winter festival, or possibly the Festival of the Unconquered Sun — Sol Invictus. The theory went that Christians could get | Read More »
Obama base turns against ObamaCare
A new CNN poll finds support for the ever unpopular ObamaCare has dropped to another all-time low. According to CNN, nearly all of the increased opposition is coming from women. This confirms the important trend we reported a month ago: “Opposition to Obamacare rose six points among women, from 54% in November to 60% now, while opinion of the new law remained virtually unchanged among men,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland | Read More »
@BarackObama extending #obamacare deadline more or less indefinitely at this point.
Eventually, they’re just going to announce that everybody’s deemed to have been in compliance with Obamacare’s individual mandate tax. It’s the logical progression to this nonsense, really. The Obama administration said Tuesday that it would provide more time for people to sign up for health insurance if they could show that they missed the Tuesday deadline for applications because of problems with the federal health | Read More »
The War On Christmas
Every year after the Thanksgiving national holiday, Americans begin preparing to celebrate the Christmas national holiday. Others, who perhaps see themselves protecting the freedom of religion for those who don’t practice Christianity, try to prevent the trappings of a religious holiday from intruding into the public square. That’s all well and good, but in doing so they are missing the chance to celebrate the greatest non-religious holiday | Read More »
Variety Tells Us There Is No Santa Claus
A pompous jerk named Brian Lowry, who is billed as a “TV columnist” at Variety and carries the Freudian Twitter handle @blowryontv, has written a column called Dear ‘Duck Dynasty’ Fans: You Do Know It’s All Fake, Right? In it he does the equivalent of telling us rubes in flyover country that a television show is, get ready for it, STAGED. IT IS FAKE, YOU BIBLE THUMPING | Read More »
Tolerance, celebration, and disapproval
Having spilled many pixels in defense of Phil Robertson, who got suspended from the hit TV show “Duck Dynasty” because of his religious faith, and having spilled even more pixels in defense of traditional marriage, I should make it clear that I don’t personally consider homosexuality sinful. I always receive a number of emails with Biblical citations when I say that. Thank you, everyone, but I know | Read More »
What’s the Real Nature of Conservative Politics?
Political terms mean different things in different countries, and they mean different things in the same countries at different times. In the United States and across the world in the 19th Century, the word “liberal” described someone primarily concerned about liberty. Over the years, the word “liberal,” deliberately adopted by the left in the United States, has come to mean here someone committed to, among | Read More »

The attack of Phil Robertson for quoting the New Testament is a case study in how the homosexual celebration movement use language as a method of cultural warfare.
