The single woman society
The Virginia governor’s race was yet another example of the massive voting gap in a huge demographic: single people, particularly single women. According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli won handily on the “hard” issues facing Virginia voters, and won most other demographic slices, but Democrat Terry McAuliffe won big with single people, crushing Cuccinelli by nearly fifty points among single women. A similar dynamic could be | Read More »
Virginia, Vote TODAY for Cuccinelli, Jackson, and Obenshain. It’s important.
Today Virginia votes. Republicans, and in particular conservatives, come to this election after a difficult year to endure. The Governor depressed us, the Lieutenant Governor depressed us, the transportation deal depressed us, and of course DC establishment Republicans like Eric Cantor depressed us.
But today we face a clear, easy choice: Ken Cuccinelli or Terry McAuliffe. Easy call. We must make sure to vote today for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, E. W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor, and Mark Obenshain for Attorney General. It’s important. Please vote.

RS Interview: Lt. Govenor David Dewhurst (R, Texas). #prolife
Yesterday, as you might have read, a federal judge ruled that several elements of Texas’s abortion reform laws were unconstitutional (although not the section that restricted abortions after 20 weeks). As you might recall, RedState spoke with Lt. Governor Dewhurst after the bill finally passed, and we spoke to him again yesterday: Short version: Texas is going to fight the court case, Texas is expecting | Read More »
Looking Beyond Abortion
In the pro-life community you hear a lot about the number of babies that have been aborted. Indeed, the numbers are astounding. Over 54 million children have been murdered in abortion since Roe Vs. Wade. Over 3,000 babies will be murdered today, around 10 in the time it takes to read this post. And those numbers are just in the U.S. However, there are | Read More »

Gov. Pat McCrory (R, North Carolina) shuts down pro-abortion protest! …by giving them cookies.
That was not a typo. Or euphemism. (Photo by Irene Godinez) Gov. Pat McCrory hasn’t been willing to meet with the women (and a few men) protesting an abortion bill that opponents say restricts access to safe abortions. But he did stop by this afternoon with a plate of chocolate chip cookies. McCrory was flanked by four security guards as he came out of the | Read More »
Coat Hangers, Hysteria, and Hyperbole in the Cult of Death
A few weeks ago, State Senator Wendy Davis of Texas tried to filibuster legislation that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks in Texas and require facilities wanting to perform the medical procedure to adhere to standards for outpatient medical facilities. Her filibuster failed and liberal activists disrupted the final minutes of the Texas legislature’s special session. Governor Rick Perry called back the Texas House and | Read More »
My Sincere Apologies to the Kid Killing Caucus
I must offer up my sincerest apologies to the kid killing caucus that took it on the chin or other body parts in Texas last night. After days on end of abortion supporters in Texas holding up coat hangers and then, yesterday, throwing feces, urine, and tampons in defense of killing kids, I tweeted out a link to a coat hanger wholesale store. The kid | Read More »
“For We Are Legion”: Hell Breaks Loose In Texas
And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him. And crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.” For he was saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit! And Jesus asked him, “What | Read More »
Bro-Choice: Founders of The People’s Democracy of Soulless Fornication (PDSF)
There’s a certain type of man who goes all-out on behalf of abortion rights; the type of guy who’s Bro-Choice. The type of person who needs a musical expression that shows the rest of the world what is really inside his soul. So here goes. It’s quite catchy, in a sadistic sort of a way. Ah, the wonderful PUA community. They’re out there and they’re | Read More »
Abortionists Declare Their Team: Chant “Hail Satan” As Christians Sing Amazing Grace
This is staggering to behold. As Texas gears up to push legislation that would prohibit late term abortions — those conducted after 20 weeks — Christian activists in the Texas State Capitol sang “Amazing Grace.” Abortion rights activists, there to support killing kids, tried to shout down the Christians by chanting “Hail Satan.” Yes, there is video. Remember, these people support the party that booed | Read More »
The weed of politics bears bitter fruit
The spooky old pulp avenger known as The Shadow was fond of hissing a lesson at his defeated criminal enemies: The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. The fruit of total politics is bitter, too. One cannot help noticing that everything in our hyper-politicized culture is becoming a teeth-and-fingernails struggle in which the losing side is demonized. This kind of thinking even found its way into | Read More »
Egypt, America and Revolutionary War
“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” Mao Tse-Tung (HT: Goodreads.com) I do not care is how an honest human being describes a | Read More »

Rick Perry Praises Wendy Davis. Political Left Gets Outraged
Rick Perry had kind things to say about Wendy Davis at the National Right to Life meeting going on in Dallas. In his speech he noted: In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances, the daughter of a single mother and a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve | Read More »
Proposition 8 might still be the law under the California Constitution
Yesterday, when the US Supreme Court denied the right of California citizens to stand up and appeal for Proposition 8, the state constitutional amendment they voted in place directly, it looked like the lower court’s decision against the amendment would stand.
After all, The Supreme Court has thrown out all of those appeals in Perry v Brown, leaving only the initial trial court injunction against Proposition 8 by George H. W. Bush appointee Vaughn Walker, and a stay against that by the Appeals Court, which will likely be lifted now.
But Big Government has noticed that the California constitution may not take the word of one judge alone as binding on the state. So as of now, Proposition 8 may be the law of the land in the Golden State.
