DeMint endorses DeVore, Fiorina panics
We won the big statewide races yesterday, and now it’s back to work trying to win some more. The California Senate primary may not be until June, but when we’re faced with an entrenched incumbent like Barbara Boxer, we need all the lead time we can get. Up until now, the DC types have all been supporting Carly Fiorina in our primary, even though she | Read More »

REDSTATE EXCLUSIVE: Jim DeMint on Why He Supports Doug Hoffman for Congress
Senator Jim DeMint just sent me the statement below on his support for Doug Hoffman. As one of the real leaders of the conservative movement in this country, DeMint speaks for many of us. I’m delighted he is, as he consistently does, putting principle over party in this case.Senator DeMint says:”Too often, we’re told that Republicans have to be like Democrats to be competitive in | Read More »
The Seduction Of Lindsey Graham
According to most conservatives in South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has officially gone over to the dark side. Under the guise of ‘bipartisanship,’ Graham has signed on to one of the left’s most ambitious plans to impose a socialist agenda in America – government control of the formerly free market through implementation of cap-and trade, the 1,400 plus page Waxman-Markey bill approved earlier this | Read More »
The Honduras article Sen. Kerry (D, MA) didn’t want you to see.
(Via Dan Collins of POWIP) Senator Jim DeMint (R, SC) is back from Honduras – despite the best efforts of the Democrats to stop him from going – and he’s unkind about what has been pretty obviously an attempt by the American government to admit that we made a mistake and picked the wrong side of the Honduras issue: [American policy re: the Zelaya ouster] | Read More »
More like ‘DeMint *schools* Kerry over Honduras.’
(Via Jen Rubin) Let’s review (I almost did this using an extended metaphor of a fencing match, but I didn’t want actual fencers wincing): Sen. John Kerry is the Democratic point man in Foreign Relations for this administration’s messed-up Honduras policy. He is, in fact, the Foreign Relations chair… which tells you how seriously the Democrats take this committee (i.e., they don’t). Sen. Jim DeMint | Read More »

Senator Bunning (R-KY) is offering legislation to require all bills be put on the internet for at least 72 hours in final form before being voted on in the Senate.The Senate Conservatives Fund, an organization near and dear to my heart (have you given them money?), has a petition on this that you should sign.From the petition:The town hall meetings in August uncovered a nasty | Read More »
This fish cost California almost a billion dollars.
And depending on your monitor, the picture (via Michelle Malkin) may be the actual size: That’s the delta smelt – or, as Rep. George Radanovich (R, CA-19) likes to call it, “a worthless little worm that needs to go the way of the dinosaur” – and it’s the reason why direct farm losses in California’s San Joaquin valley are being estimated at a high of | Read More »
Barbara Boxer & Lamar Alexander vs. Jim DeMint & Mitch McConnell
I’ve been meaning to give praise to Mitch McConnell since last week when he began voting against appropriations measures coming out of the Senate. This is a rare thing for McConnell, who normally sides with the appropriators.But he stood up and voted no last week, siding with the Senate conservatives. It was a bold move worthy of praise. Something has happened this week too. McConnell | Read More »

Now that we’ve met in Atlanta, we must mobilize.
This weekend, 200 RedStaters gathered together in Atlanta to hear from real conservative leaders and candidates. We were specific in our invitations — we wanted conservatives, not just Republicans. The message was phenomenal. The time shared was outstanding. But now we have work to do. We cannot return to our former ways. We must commit to continuous activity on behalf of these outstanding men and | Read More »
An Amazing Time
As you can tell, we’ve been away and busy at the RedState Gathering. Liz Cheney spoke. She was amazing. “America needs a commander in chief,” she said, ” not a global community organizer.” Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Michael Williams, Ken Cuccinelli, Karen Handel, Tom Price, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Jim DeMint, and Rick Perry all joined us in person or via video.

Obama at Waterloo
We have the power to stop Barack Obama on healthcare. We have the power to shut him down. Already, Democrats are recognizing the measure is coming apart at the seams. Nancy says she has the votes, but the markup of the bill in committee keeps getting cancelled. Tonight, Barack Obama goes on television to complain, beg, and cajole the American people to commit themselves to | Read More »
“Shut up, she explained.”
While I agree with Ed Morrissey that seeing Senator Jim DeMint make Senator Kay Hagan admit several times that there was a double standard in the way that they killed his call for a GAO audit of the Federal Reserve (a very popular House initiative) while not applying the same rule to their own pet clauses, I also agree that it was prefaced by what | Read More »
