Jindal to… raise revenue?
I will be the first to admit that the “conservative media” in Louisiana is often just looking to find flaws in anyone so they can build themselves up as a better conservative than a politician. Good for readership or ratings or whatever. However, I have to look at this move by Bobby Jindal and wonder if it is really the best move to make. After | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Tweets A Less Than Credible Response
We now know Hillary Clinton conducted all of her email correspondence via an email domain with a server located in her private resident. The story has been brewing for days. The other day, Clinton spoke at a kid killing conference where a bunch of people who support kid killing creepily talked about bundles of joy. At the kid killing conference, Clinton made no reference to | Read More »
Bill and Hillary Clinton Have Financial Anorexia
When Bill and Hillary Clinton look at themselves in the mirror, they see poor people. They are rich. They have a huge house in a wealthy neighborhood. They do not have to fly commercial. Their daughter has married into a wealthy family. They’ve done quite well for themselves. But the richer they get, they still see themselves as poor. So they are greedy. That is | Read More »
Why Hillary is a Different Kind of Clinton
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Leon Wolf to discuss the winners and losers of CPAC, if Scott Walker’s background will help him in 2016 and why Hillary is a different kind of Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s e-mails at State Department were entirely private #2016
This is cause for some concern. WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides | Read More »
Media suddenly interested in vetting candidates’ college years
Scott Walker has come from out of nowhere (if you weren’t paying attention), survived three elections in four years as a Republican in a blue state, and is making waves with statements and policies that drive the Left insane. However, there is one thing that makes Walker different from other potential presidential candidates – he never finished college. And, the college life of a presidential | Read More »
Is *Hillary* Ready?
This is a very nice Townhall article by Conn Carroll on Barack Obama and how he was not the Left’s Ronald Reagan (unless you count the way that Barack Obama, like Reagan, has made the argument against big government – however inadvertently, in Obama’s case). But I have a quibble. In short, I always have the same question in my head when I see lines like | Read More »
Thomas Jefferson for President!
My friend Russell Moore has penned an op-ed at the Wall Street Journal today. I implore you to make it your must read of the day. Here is a sample: If religious liberty doesn’t apply to small or unpopular minorities, then it isn’t liberty at all but becomes another government handout to a special-interest group. We want a candidate who will argue consistently for soul | Read More »
What About the Military
While in Iowa for Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 78%‘s Freedom Summit, RedState asked the 2016 Presidential candidates about the U.S. military. In particular, we asked them what the future military should look like and also how the military will need to balance cyber-war, Islamic extremists, and traditional military threats. Here’s what they had to say.
RedState 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings: Week 1
Hello and welcome to a new and (hopefully) weekly segment at RedState, the Weekly 2016 Presidential Primary Power Rankings. Each week on Tuesday, I will be compiling this list based on a “secret sauce” formula that I made up that factors in polling data, fundraising information, news items of the week, organization/staff readiness, and more subjective things like “momentum” and “buzz,” which don’t really exist | Read More »
Ending Groundhog Republicanism
Humanity is tormented once again by an age-old issue—is man to live in dignity and freedom under God or be enslaved—are men in government to serve, or are they to master, their fellow men? It befalls us now to resolve this issue anew—perhaps this time for centuries to come. Nor can we evade the issue here at home. Even in this Constitutional Republic, for two | Read More »
Think that the Democrats will retake the House in ’16? Fine. Name the seats.
While you are going to hear a good deal about how the Democrats plan to message, and take advantage of their gerrymandered states, and framing, and almost everything else – one thing that’s going to be not talked about much will be which seats are going to flip.

Scott Walker, Presumptive 2016 Favorite
Forget what the polls say. Polls this far out are notoriously worthless in predicting Presidential nominees. Right now Scott Walker is sitting in the catbird’s seat for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination. Virtually everyone who is contemplating running for President in 2016 or who has ever contemplated running for President in their life went to Iowa last weekend but unless you were a regular reader | Read More »
The 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates Disagree With House Republicans
RedState was pleased to help sponsor this past weekend’s Freedom Summit in Iowa. We asked the candidates runnig for President and others who were speaking five questions. One of those questions was what they think about the House Republican Leaders pulling the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. They, and the members of Congress present, dissent.
Fiorina 2016: A Campaign Without a Raison D’être
In a year in which the GOP promises to field its strongest field of qualified and experienced candidates in a generation, and in which there promises to be a veritable buffet of viable options for establishment and movement conservatives alike, for some reason the existence of Carly Fiorina’s bizarrely pointless 2016 campaign continues to be a story worth reporting on for the political media. The usual | Read More »
