What did Glenn Beck really say at CPAC?
What did Glenn Beck really say at CPAC? This morning’s many commentaries on Glenn Beck’s CPAC speech were very confusing. Did they all hear the same speech? What I heard was the following. An impassioned plea for the republican party to stop what they have been doing and take time to reflect and really analyze their actions in the years since the | Read More »
“Come to Jesus” at CPAC 2010
It happened this weekend at CPAC. It was the first time I’d ever attended a conservative convention and all the way up to 6:00 pm on Saturday, I thought that I had figured out what this convention would mean to me and how it would affect my outlook on the 2010 elections, the Republican Party, Libertarians and so on. I could not have been more | Read More »
The Good, The Bad, The Discordant, and the Uncomfortable
“Conservatism is on the ascendency. But it will ascend within the GOP, not via a third party.” Now that I’ve had twelve hours of sleep after four days of three hour nights, I can settle in and focus on the CPAC that was and was not. There was no dominant theme at CPAC this year, which was surprising. The Ron Paul kids were out in | Read More »
Romney’s Rage: A Manifestation of Tea Party Anger?
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was recently involved in a physical altercation with rapper Sky Blu aboard an Air Canada flight heading from Vancouver to Los Angeles. While the politician’s spokesman claimed that Romney had been assaulted by a hostile passenger, the rapper (whose real name is Skyler Gordy) claimed he was actually the victim of assault. Gordy, a member of the group LMFAO | Read More »
The Chalk Board Gets A Standing Ovation
OMG my head is going to explode from the sheer level of awesomeness in Glenn Beck’s speech.He brought out the chalk board to a standing ovation. He’s going after the Democrats and the Republicans for progressivism. He’s taking no prisoners making the case for conservatives to drive out progressives and defeat them.Amen and amen.Glenn goes on to say “it’s not enough to just not suck | Read More »
For CPAC and Beck, The Truth About the ACORN 8
What began in 2009 as a quiet rumble of discontent blossomed into a movement over health care and rocked the nation with the election of Scott Brown. Now fired up Conservatives are bringing that energy to DC for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Thursday CPAC began with an abundance of Conservative leaders coming together from across the country. Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians will mingle | Read More »

Origin of “lamestream media” (not coined by Bernie Goldberg); More Beck misquotes on Jefferson, Washington; Does anyone on Fox News read Red State?
DOES ANYONE ON FOX NEWS READ RED STATE? Maybe reading conservative blogs is too time-consuming for Bill O’Reilly or Glenn Beck, but Sean Hannity told Erick Erickson that he reads Red State every day. Surely, out of all the staff and interns on all the shows, someone regularly looks at blogs such as Red State? I’m a penniless scholar and I’ve offered to help anyone | Read More »
What does Glenn Beck want?
As an on again/off again listener to Glenn Beck, I am always struck by the simple question of what is Mr. Beck’s vision of America? I fully understand that Mr. Beck wants a complete overthrow of the current political order. I don’t think I would be incorrect in saying that Mr. Beck does not believe either Republican or Democrats are worthy of the peoples trust. | Read More »
Debra Medina — A Tea Party Cautionary Tale
I have to admit I am something of a skeptic about the Tea Party movement for a lot of reasons. This is not to say that I’m not also a skeptic about the GOP but only to say that spontaneous eruptions of political enthusiasm through modern history have more frequently been associated with disillusionment and disengagement (see Perot, Ross) and atrocities (see French Revolution) than | Read More »
Beck Has A Revealing Interview With TX Tea Party Candidate
Glenn Beck has a policy of not endorsing candidates – sort of. While he is faithful about his disclaimers on air, he finds it hard (as most of us would) to not like one or the other contestant in a race. His trusty assistants Stu and Pat don’t make it any easier with their on-air needling of him about the statements made by candidates while | Read More »
Glenn Beck to Chuck DeVore: “You intrigue me.”
Chuck DeVore appeared last night on FOXNews with Glenn Beck talking about the role of government and his race for the U.S. Senate. While reiterating his policy of not endorsing candidates, Beck declared: “You intrigue me.” Beck had Assemblyman DeVore on the program for two segments (they will play sequentially): Early on the in the program Glenn listed the litany of liberal interest groups who | Read More »
Origin, myth of the “lobbyist”; Glenn Beck uses another fake Thomas Jefferson quote
ORIGIN, MYTH OF THE “LOBBYIST” On “The O’Reilly Factor” last Friday, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly were discussing the lobbyists in the Obama administration (a familiar theme here at RedState). Beck said that Obama probably thinks a lobbyist is someone who just stands in the lobby. O’Reilly asked Beck if he knew what administration coined the term “lobbyist.” Beck guessed “Wilson” and “FDR.” O’Reilly said | Read More »
My suggested Saturday Night Live “ObamaCare on C-SPAN” sketch
Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin have recently offered to co-host Saturday Night Live. The SNL writing has been poor all season, with only one good sketch among every five so-so or downright awful sketches. The SNL website has a Writers’ Room, where I offered my take on “ObamaCare on C-SPAN”: C-SPAN HEALTHCARE NEGOTIATIONS SKETCH Violins play in the background for a long, long time. ANNOUNCER: | Read More »
Bill O’Reilly, Marc Lamont Hill, TIME–this is a no spin zone?
Bill O’Reilly, please retire! Today’s show (you can catch the repeat) of The O’Reilly Factor says it all. O’Reilly talked with someone from TIME magazine about its “Man of the Year”–Ben Bernanke. Right here this morning on Red State, Brad Smith wrote something that makes a lot more sense: “The Real Persons of the Year: The Tea Partiers.” Glenn Beck took the same idea of | Read More »
Video: Glenn Beck Interviews Mike Goldfarb About Extortion of Ben Nelson
Sen. Ben Nelson appears to be the lone Democrat refusing to go along with ObamaCare, unless language is added that would prevent the federal funding of abortion. Obama can’t afford to outrage his radical left base any further and therefore cannot insert such language. With no other way out, the Obama administration has quietly informed Sen. Nelson that if he does not support the health | Read More »
