In early 2009, I started doing a morning briefing here at RedState. I started it without telling the corporate bosses at Eagle Publishing, but the list grew really quickly. By the end of the year, they were wondering why I was sending an email out to 100,000 people a day. I didn’t know it cost money. haha. The email now goes out to more than | Read More »
One of the things I am looking forward to the most from Wednesday’s debate is seeing Trump on the stage with Carly Fiorina. Fiorina responded to Trump’s swipe last week at her looks with a pretty brilliant social media ad that carries a simple yet profound message: You can tell that the video left a mark because of the way that Trump campaign manager | Read More »

Back during World War II, the people of the Melenesian islands experienced a temporary an unexpected period of prosperity that was brought on by their convenience as a staging area for the island warfare that characterized the Pacific theater. The folks who inhabited these islands (who could only fairly be called primitive) watched in wonder as the Japanese and Americans in turn descended on their | Read More »
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll doesn’t tell us much new but it serves as a useful data point that reinforces what every other poll has told us. Top Line Results: The broad picture painted on the Republican side is that Trump and Carson are locked in a struggle for first place. Bush, never a strong contender is in a statistical tie with the rest | Read More »
About a week ago, I wrote an article about rhetoric vs. reality with respect to the Blue Lives Matter movement. The basic thrust of the article was that, in spite of the claims of the police and their defenders, violence against police is not on the rise in America – in fact, it is at the lowest point it’s ever been. The statistics don’t lie: | Read More »
Being Leftist means never having to say you’re sorry. Being a huge Barack Obama-Democrat donor doesn’t hurt either. Being incredibly generous in support of Leftism also allows you to enact incredibly anti-free market, anti-Reality policies that are a huge boon to you – at the exorbitant expense of the private sector players who made your successes possible. So it is with Google’s Network Neutrality assault | Read More »

So, after signing the GOP ‘loyalty oath’ which reads: Over the week end, Pataki, who is favored by | Read More »
Firs the Obama Administration began pressuring public school systems. If the school systems wanted to keep federal money coming in, they needed to allow boys to use the girls’ bathroom if the boys decided they were girls. Parents did not like it, but in suburban Northern Virginia, the school board told the parents to go to hell and told the boys to get on in | Read More »
Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday was the decisive winner of the UK Labour Party leader’s election, an event many of us believe to be great news for the UK Conservative Party. It’s worth taking a moment to look at why this happened, and why this is terrible news for Labour’s electoral chances.
“This is a fight on principle over whether the Republican Party should stand by and let our tax dollars be used to subsidize the American Mengeles of Planned Parenthood or not.”Republican Leaders and their friends in the Circle of Jerks that make up the Washington Press Corps are pushing a “there they go again” line against conservatives fighting to defund Planned Parenthood. They are making | Read More »
The entire thing would be quite the knee-slapper, except that I have children who will be of military age in about, oh, ten years or so. I would rather that we not be faced with yet another general European war in that time – and, no, I don’t think that we can avoid getting sucked into one. We have yet to avoid getting sucked into a general European war. Why would we change our losing streak in that regard now?
I’d be a lot less than honest if I said I was a fan of Pope Francis. as I said once before, his “off the cuff pronouncements didn’t leave me like a James Bond martini: shaken not stirred.” I say that as a political conservative and a conservative Roman Catholic. Having said that, my real points of objection to him are what I think is | Read More »
