If Baltimore is the new normal, I really don’t care
The riots in Baltimore after the untimely death of small-time criminal Freddie Gray at the hands of Baltimore police officers has set off an interesting series of commentary. For instance, this from the Huffington Post: On the Cusp of an ‘African American Spring’. This gem is from the pen of John Fitzgerald Gates, Ph.D. National Diversity Expert; Principal and Chief Strategist of Criticality Management Consulting; | Read More »

H1B Visas and The Magical Outsourcing Of Disney
Snow White Before and After Disney Ate The H1B Apple You can wish upon a star. It doesn’t matter who you are. Unless, of course, you work IT and are a US citizen instead of an H1B visa-holder. In that case, Cinderella, me so sowwy. Your carriage just turned into a pumpkin and the title company is about to foreclose because | Read More »
What’s Actually Going On
I encounter people all the time who scratch their heads wondering how a bunch of leftwing nuts who believe you can pick your gender are attacking Americans who criticize Islam. These left-wing types who pound their chests over a “war on women” in the United States are perfectly willing to turn a blind eye to Islamic harassment of women, even in the United States. They | Read More »
#Gotham Season One: The Long Game
As our Dear Leader will not have had a chance to see the season finale of Gotham yet, I will refrain from posting spoilers. When it was first announced that there was going to be a series on Fox that would serve as a “pre-Batman Gotham City story,” I was somewhat skeptical. As RedState’s Foremost Batman Expert and DC Comics optimist, however, I was sure | Read More »
Jihad Struck Texas But Will the Obama Administration Continue to Bury Its Head in the Sand
Jihad struck Texas last night. It’s just the latest skirmish in a global radical Islamic assault on free speech – on freedom.
It’s a war. ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and al Qaeda are just a few of the named brigades in this radical Islamic jihadist army.
The two Islamic terrorists who opened fire on a free speech art exhibit in Texas are merely the latest casualties in this war. But they are a reminder of who the enemy is.

Obama’s Iran strategy continues to succeed
The moral and intellectual bankruptcy of Obama grand strategy of wooing Iran as a partner has never been clearly apparent than over the past couple of weeks. Keep in mind that it is Iran that Obama has decided is his “boots on the ground” in the war, or whatever it is, against ISIS. Not only are the Iranian Republican Guards slowly but surely gaining control | Read More »
Sometimes Violence is Apparently the Answer
The last couple of years have really seen a remarkable about-face from the hippies and those who espouse the recycled hippie ideals in the modern left. Used to be, we all (with the exception of a few quacks) accepted that violence and intimidation weren’t legitimate methods of achieving political change. Even if we agreed with the change that was sought, we had to condemn anyone | Read More »
Senator John Barrasso wins Tony Award for Failure Theater
A couple of weeks ago I posted on the pathetic attempt by Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) 47% to save Obamacare subsidies should the Supreme Court rule them illegal. His strategy is to float a bill that looks like a repeal of Obamacare but with the odd exception of funding subsidies to people who purchased insurance via federal exchanges. Why, you might | Read More »
Here They Come
Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson are declaring their bids for President of the United States. Coming soon, Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry will do the same. Bobby Jindal will most likely also announce. (I expect to see them all at the RedState Gathering, by the way) For those keeping score at home, that is one old corrupt white woman against a female former CEO of | Read More »
Conservatives Must Oppose Bob Corker’s Capitulation
The video above explains why President Obama’s deal with Iran is so bad. Made worse is Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46%‘s effort to ratify the deal through a perversion of the constitutional process. Bob Corker is a little man who chairs the impotent Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The two traits have conspired to require him to feel relevant and stretch his little | Read More »
Taking the Bait and Blaming the Victim
Yesterday, just outside of Dallas, Texas, two shooters attacked an art exhibit that was displaying parody images of Muhammad. Normal people were appalled at the atrocity, and several more knew that the phrase “Don’t Mess With Texas” was more than just words. The response to this shooting in Texas by the Left, however, is truly weird to watch. Many have said, essentially, that the art | Read More »
God Bless Texas
My favorite drawings at the Muhammad cartoon festival in Texas were the two chalk outlines out front.— Evan Sayet (@EvanSayet) May 4, 2015 Liberals who are perfectly fine dropping a crucifix in a jar of urine and calling it art are appalled that Pamela Gellar would hold a “draw Mohammed” contest in Texas. “She’s just asking for trouble,” they proclaimed. In fact, trouble did show | Read More »
