Mitt Romney: A Severe Conservative Who Just Won’t Go Away
When conservative candidates lose their bid for elected office, they tend to fade away from public life and are never heard from again. But for Rockefeller Republicans, losing an election is evidently a resume enhancer for them to continue advising and interfering with Republican politics and policy. Mitt Romney ran as a “severely” conservative Republican in the primary. He pulverized his opponents with an expensive | Read More »
If You Live in Texas, Vote for Ken Paxton for Attorney General
Remember last year, when many Republicans in the Texas Legislature decided to pass a bill–supported by President Obama and Congressional Democrats at the federal level–requiring outside groups to disclose their donors to engage in political speech? Thankfully Governor Perry vetoed the bill, which would have stifled the free speech of all sorts of conservative organizations. Fast forward to the current Texas Attorney General’s race, and | Read More »
Crucifixions, Porn and Other Sick Perversions At The USEPA.
People hold varying opinions on whether Global Warming is occurring. They differ on whether it is a cataclysmic occurrence if it happens. People hold radically different opinions on what should and what can be done about the issue if it were to become a problem. However, I’d argue that anyone not infected with a pseudo-religious zealotry would be concerned if they knew the extent to | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale, Deceptions, and Lack of Courage on the Campaign Trail
The Tea Party is dead. It’s so dead that even politicians who clearly do not share its ethos…co-opt the message and run with it on the campaign trail. In fact, no viable candidate can be caught running an ad that reflects anything counter to the message of the Tea Party in GOP primaries. The latest example is Sid Dinsdale who is running for the U.S. | Read More »
Apology from the RNC Director of Rapid Response
*The below apology from Jahan Wilcox, which was posted by Chairman Priebus, is appreciated by RedState, as is the severe reprimand that we were told was administered. Unfortunately, the willingness of some within the ranks of the party apparatus to demean, and sometimes even work against, conservative candidates has grown this primary cycle. While we are disappointed that this happened within the ranks of Reince’s | Read More »
House Leaders Pass Another Bill With Democrat Support
Evidently, the fact that Republicans “only” control the House necessitates that they pass bills with Democrats support. Once again, House leaders passed a bill through the House with only a majority of Democrat support. As we noted yesterday, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation is a corporate welfare bank to subsidize foreign investment. 106 Republicans voted for it while 116 voted against it. This is yet | Read More »
Obama: Benghazi Is A Phony Scandal
Last summer, Barack Obama, the selfie president, gave a speech in which he blamed his difficulties, in part, on phony scandals: Reversing this trend must be Washington’s highest priority. It’s certainly mine. But for most of this year, an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals have shifted focus from what we need to do to shore up the middle class. And as | Read More »
Urgent: Gosnell Movie Needs Your Help
I’m not going to go into depth about what Gosnell Movie is about. You can read about that here, but in short, it tells the story of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who prolifically murdered babies both inside the womb and out. He is currently serving a life sentence in prison. It is a story that needs to be told, because the pro-abortion media refused to | Read More »
McCain Gives Voice to the Left Again
As a sitting Senator, every member of the upper chamber has numerous opportunities on a daily basis to influence the debate and enhance a conservative agenda. This goes far beyond a mere voting record; it’s about being a loud and effective voice for the cause. We see this every day from people like Ted Cruz who shamed Democrats into supporting his bill denying a visa | Read More »
The curse of self-interest
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was interrupted in the middle of his latest deranged rant against the Koch Brothers – law-abiding private citizens whose destruction is apparently the sole reason for the Democrat Party’s existence – and asked why he doesn’t direct similar calumny at Sheldon Adelson, another rich Republican donor, who is indisputably more influential in Republican circles than the Kochs are. The | Read More »
Citizens Assemble to Defend Bible Studies and the Right to Assemble in Private Homes
Earlier this week I told you about a proposed ordinance to limit the right to assemble in the privacy of one’s own home. It could have a chilling effect on home Bible studies and is a grave and fundamental violation of the Constitution.
Last night I spoke at a community meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in opposition to the proposed regulation, explaining how it would not only violate the Constitution and Virginia law but smacks of the worst kind of government overreach.

Nancy Pelosi skips Lois Lerner contempt vote for DCCC fundraiser.
Priorities: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did not attend the Wednesday evening vote series to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about the agency’s improper scrutiny of Tea Party groups. She was, however, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser attended by the president and roughly 90 guests at the home of Disney Chairman Alan Horn in Bel | Read More »
Mary Landrieu thinks it’s Republicans that lack commitment on the Keystone XL
“U.S. Senator Landrieu questions Republican commitment to Keystone” is the funniest headline you’ll see today. Thank your higher powers that it was brought to us by Reuters. Democratic U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu accused Republicans on Wednesday of being more interested in exploiting the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline project as an election issue than in voting to build it. In a speech on the Senate | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ An Open Thread
Warning: Sarc meter is experiencing extreme pressure and may cause unexpected outbursts of incomprehensible rambling. So, what’s up at the Department of Homeland Security? Why won’t they approve the document made by the California Department of Motor Vehicles so the undocumented can get a document to let them drive? Just because they’re not authorized to be here in the first place, that is NO EXCUSE | Read More »
