Why I am more honest and less biased than Politico
RedState is an unabashedly conservative site and I, myself, have been serving up hot, dripping red meat freshly torn from the butts of Democrats and Communists, to the extent there is a difference, for over a decade. Yet after the past couple of days I’ve come conclusion that by any objective standard I am both more honest and less biased in my coverage of national | Read More »
This Way Comes
“The difference between Bush’s mistakes and his disappointments may just be that he hasn’t yet taken ownership of the latter,” Massimo Calabresi wrote in Time as he covered President George W. Bush’s final press conference in January of 2009. Four years earlier, left-wing journalist John Dickerson had begun a trend among the Bush White House press corps, demanding from the President a recognition of his | Read More »
The Circle of Jerks Turns From Scott Walker to Ted Cruz
The Circle of Jerks went blind the other day over a quote from Scott Walker about ultrasounds prior to an abortion being “cool.” The Politico ran it. Various left leaning journalists circulated it. It’s as if they had an email server and they all descended at once with their stories printed on kleenex. The only problem is that the story was made up. Some of | Read More »
WATCH: Gov. Scott Walker Addresses Now Infamous Politico/TPM/Jezebel/NPR/Kos/Etc Ultrasound Misquote
On the Dana Loesch Radio Show today, Governor Scott Walker addressed the made-up controversy over his non-controversial remarks, first pointed out by Loesch and which we wrote about here at RedState. His response is perfect. “Walker Derangement Syndrome’ is absolutely correct. The left and the media (standard “but I repeat myself” joke goes here) will relentlessly latch onto stories that they think paint Republicans as | Read More »

[Video] AFL-CIO Boss to Hillary: Support Us On Trade or Else.
For a long time, AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka’s support for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been “lukewarm.” Trumka’s preferred candidate, [D-MA], has stated she’s not running for President (so far.). However, in order to garner the labor federation’s endorsement for 2016, it seems that one of Trumka’s big litmus tests is whether or not Clinton will back labor’s opposition to President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership trade | Read More »
George Pataki runs for president as the WTF?? candidate
Great news. I know you’ve all been waiting for this. George Pataki, a three-term governor of New York, on Thursday joined a crowded field of Republican presidential candidates where he has little name recognition and will have to prove his conservative credentials. Pataki invoked Republican Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan in his announcement speech in Exeter, N.H. and said he was running to “preserve | Read More »

There has been much in the news about the Export-Import bank in recent months, and | Read More »

Obama 2012: I Ended The War. Obama 2015: Only The USA Patriot Act Can Save Us!
President Barack Obama bragged during his 2012 Reelection Campaign that he ended the war in Iraq. GM alive, Bin Laden dead, Barack Obama 2012! Barack Obama was dismissive when told that threats still remained. He initially described ISIS as “the JV.” For all who would listen he loudly proclaimed a victory for peace. Now that is demanding a peace dividend in the form of reduced | Read More »

Rick Perry Approaches the Arena
When the economy began to slide under George W. Bush and then cratered complete with Barack Obama entering the White House, Texas’s economy stayed strong. When the summer of recovery saw more and more Americans leaving the workforce, Texas saw more and more people going to work. In fact, if Texas were not a hotbed of economic activity in the past six years, Barack Obama | Read More »
