Are Republicans Finally Brave Enough to Fight This?
In 2010, 2012, and 2014, Democrats pounded the GOP on the “war on women.” It did little good, but the Democrats have kept it going. Within the Republican Party, the leaders and candidates, scared of another Todd Akin moment, have run from the issue of abortion. But that might be changing thanks to Hillary Clinton. Clinton yesterday tried to attack [mc_name name=’Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’ | Read More »
Planned Parenthood’s 3% Lie
97 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services are not abortion. When the dim-witted Amanda Marcotte (trigger warning) made this hysterical (and I use it in the sense of ‘hysteria’ because that is what the article exudes) claim: But here is where it is not reality: All together now: 97 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services are not abortion. Attacks on Planned Parenthood are, by definition, largely attacks | Read More »
Mitch McConnell Promises “Peace in Our Time”
Butchers are killing unborn children and selling their parts for money and your tax dollars are going to the company that employs them. Not to worry, though, John Cornyn is not going to let this interfere with the Senate calendar, and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% is not going to let it inconvenience the operation of optional government services: Senate Majority Leader [mc_name | Read More »
THE DONALD Is No Longer A Risk. He Is An Issue.
If you ever attempt to manage anything complicated you will have to figure out what to do about risks. Risks can be roughly defined as things that could go wrong and give you a problem. Once they do go wrong, they become issues. Then you have a problem on your hands. The political leadership of the GOP has failed at risk management. They now have | Read More »

New Planned Parenthood video lands
Though a couple of tame, pro-abort judges have been enlisted to try to combat the release of the videos, a new video by Cemter for Medical Progress landed today. It is horrific as it is obvious that Planned Parenthood does used parts and organs from aborted babies as a profit center in their operations. From the video Asked specifically if this means Planned Parenthood Gulf | Read More »
Mitch McConnell Must Never Be Elected Again
Let me prefix my next few sentences by pointing out: I am not the executive editor of Redstate and I cannot unilaterally set or change policy for this site. So what I write here is simply my own personal opinion and not necessarily that of this station or its leadership. After today’s latest episode of McConnell-sponsored GOP Failure Theater, there is only one conclusion to | Read More »
These Senators Voted to Force You to Pay for Planned Parenthood’s Abortion Harvesting Business
A radical pro-abortion minority of the Senate just voted to continue forcing you to fund Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby harvesting business.
You need to know who they are.

Commence Act 3 of the GOP’s Planned Parenthood Failure Theater
Imagine our surprise. The standalone bill that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% promised as a sop to the dumb pro-lifers failed, exactly like everyone knew it would, exactly as it was designed to do. There was literally no way McConnell was ever going to get six Democrats to sign on to the bill, or to get it past an Obama veto, without | Read More »
The Curtain Rises Today on Act 2 of the Planned Parenthood GOP Failure Theater
Now you’re looking for the secret, but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. By now the way the GOP does pretty much everything in the Senate has become as formulaic and predictable as a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. In Act 1, some Republican Senator – usually | Read More »
Even In Politics Not Everything Is Political
I have seen a number of Republicans and even some Christian evangelicals in the past seventy-two hours make the case that the Republican Party should avoid a government shutdown to stop Planned Parenthood. In fact, a few have said the fight against Planned Parenthood is just another ideological fight and government does so much more and depriving Planned Parenthood of any money will not stop | Read More »
Would you believe it? The judge who blocked the @PPact videos is an Obama guy!
I know. I was shocked, too. Via Mollie Hemmingway at The Federalist (if you don’t have a fainting couch, you may need to invest in one before reading this): A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has | Read More »

From the Mailbag: Dear John
From the Mailbag: Dear Mr. Erickson: How irresponsible and stupid for you and other right-wing media types and tea party Congress members to be calling for another government shutdown over Parent Parenthood — you drama queen will try to shut down the government over anything — the last government shutdown orchestrated by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% cost taxpayers $24 billion — once again, it would be | Read More »
Pro-Lifers, Be Wary of Mitch McConnell on Planned Parenthood
I saw Al Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary tweet out this link earlier today. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% is calling on Planned Parenthood being defunded. I hope McConnell will stick with this, even at the risk of President Obama shutting down the government in the fight. But we should remember that we are at this point because of legislation | Read More »
The Stammering Non-Defense of Planned Parenthood
Because they are the favored ideology of the American legacy media, liberals are not often called upon to mount a strenuous intellectual defense of their institutions and beliefs. As a result, they are spectacularly bad at doing so, on the rare occasion that one of their institutions actually faces a grave threat. Never has that been more apparent than during the current Planned Parenthood scandal. | Read More »
