Washington Post Gets Its Leg Tingling Over Obama’s Christian Faith
It really makes you want to gag. Earlier in the week, the Washington Post, the same paper that published a cartoon representing ‘s two young daughters as organ-grinder monkeys, wrote a lengthy, fawning, fellating story titled: The quiet impact of Obama’s Christian faith. Long story short — you’d be excused for not reading the piece — is that Obama failed because Americans just aren’t good | Read More »
Mike Huckabee Takes Aim At Ted Cruz In Iowa
I’ve never quite understood either the appeal of Mike Huckabee as a national candidate or why Mike Huckabee thinks of himself as a national candidate but, for the second time Governor Huckabee has made a bid to become the GOP’s nominee for president. In 2008, he made a creditable run in the early states but dropped out in March when it became apparent that would | Read More »
Did Obama Just Throw Hillary Under the Bus With His Immigration Announcement?
A couple of days ago the Department of Homeland Security announced that it was taking time off from the really important work of groping your genitals as a prerequisite to boarding a commercial aircraft to actually enforce the law. This is a novel concept in an administration that has virtually replaced E Pluribus Unum with L’etat, C’est Moi as the national motto. It announced that | Read More »
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Boots Atheist Manger Scene Parody From the State Capitol
Anyone who follows religious freedom is well aware of the loathsome Freedom From Religion Foundation. It is an organization of atheist jihadis who have made it their mission to eradicate Christianity from the public square. It is pretty instructive that you don’t find them active in places like Dearborn, MI, which have become virtual no-go zones for non-Muslims for the obvious reason. Beating up on | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Continues To Show Weakness Against Any GOP Opponent
I know there are people out there who think Hillary Clinton is a formidable candidate. I am not one of them. Hillary Clinton has exactly the same problem Jeb Bush had… you can’t identify any measurable slice of the party who wants to vote for him… but Hillary has the bovine running interference for her and blocking all possible competitors. Against her, the GOP is | Read More »
Take A Break From Politics With Two Wonderful Flash Mobs
Music is an amazing thing. It can focus your mind and your soul. Bagpipes and drums have steeled men to march to near certain death. It is also a negative force. If I had to date the downfall of Christmas it would be when “White Christmas” and “Holly Jolly Christmas” supplanted the hymns of praise to the birth of Our Savior changed the holiday to | Read More »
Does Donald Trump’s Polling Show A Reverse Bradley Effect?
As we move into the election season, polling is the grist of political blogging. Polls will drive media coverage and create horse-race narratives about who is up and who is down and why. Most of it will be meaningless. At its very best, political polling is luck because of the difficulty of constructing a representative sample of the election day electorate before the event. Often | Read More »
Ted Cruz Trolls The Washington Post And The New York Times
Yesterday, a “cartoonist” for the Washington Post named Ann Telnaes drew a particularly vile cartoon in which she depicted ‘s two daughters as monkeys. The Washington Post subsequently pulled the cartoon but managed to do so without a word of apology to Cruz or his wife or the girls. Truly a class act they have going there. (See RedState coverage of that cartoon here | | Read More »
WATCH. Hillary Clinton Declares War On Public Education
If there is one thing Hillary Clinton understands it is destruction. While Bill Clinton was in public life, her job was to destroy the reputation of any of the victims of Bill Clinton’s sexual assaults who had the temerity to complain. As Secretary of State, when Clinton wasn’t unreachable because of her rigorous nap schedule, she destroyed governments in Libya and Egypt and set off | Read More »
FAIL. POLITICO Sees Ted Cruz’s Federalism As Dishonesty
Last week I posted on a POLITICO story in which Marco Rubio’s senior advisors were reported as crowing about how they were going to depict Ted Cruz as a “craven insider who lacks authenticity.” The first step in that attack was Cruz’s position on the Gang of Eight amnesty bill pushed by Marco Rubio. This has been argued to the point of exhaustion and I’m not going to revisit | Read More »
What Is the Logic In Chris Christie’s Attacks On Marco Rubio?
You don’t me to tell you this has been a strange election season. What has been most interesting is the calculations the various candidates are making on who to attack and how to go about it. Early on, Donald Trump went after Jeb Bush. I suspect that Trump thought that Bush was going to be his main competitor and decided to take him out before | Read More »
New Quinnipiac Poll. Trump 28; Cruz 24
A new Quinnipiac national poll is out and may or may not be significant. It may not be significant because the picture it paints is substantially different than other national polls and, therefore, have a sample that is simply horked beyond to point of repair. Or, conversely, the sample is good it this reflects a sea change in the race. First, let’s to to the | Read More »
Was Ben Carson’s Impending Campaign Flame-out Planned For All Along?
Many of us here at RedState have never taken Ben Carson’s campaign seriously. This is not to say Carson isn’t a good man with a wonderful and inspiring message but he has just never given the impression that he actually wants to be president rather than wanting to run for president. When third quarter campaign finance reports were release, I posted on Carson’s extraordinary burn-rate. | Read More »
Obama Administration Abandons Afghan And Iraqi Interpreters But Welcomes Syrian Refugees
Whenever the US military deploys to a foreign, non-English-speaking nation one of the things that is needed is interpreters. For obvious reasons, you need to communicate with the local population and the better you communicate the easier your life will be. If you were stationed in the Republic of Korea, you know that KATUSAs (Korean Augmentees to the US Army) are a part of the | Read More »
Iran Continues To Develop Nuclear Weapons and Ballistic Missiles As Obama Hides the Truth
Under the terms of the agreement between Obama and some Iranian leaders, neither the US Congress nor the Iranian Parliament signed on to the deal, Iran was supposed to give up its nuclear weapons research in return for Western assistance in developing civilian nuclear facilities in Iran. Iran was also supposed to be prohibited from acquiring or developing ballistic missile technology for at least eight | Read More »
