Government, Culture and Freedom
At the very dawn of our republic, John Adams uttered a prophetic phrase that rings through time to the present age. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Often we who love small government forget that culture, that is, “We the People” are the one’s who shape our government first, not | Read More »

Welcoming the GOP Back to Town
Last night I flew up to Washington so members of the GOP in Congress could extract their pound of flesh from me for taking them to task this past year. Or something like that. In all seriousness, every year Eagle Publishing, Inc., our parent company, holds a party to welcome the GOP back to Washington. This year we saw a lot of great folks show | Read More »
W5 + H = A Baseline for Integrity
UPDATE: Let me add up top an update out of the gate. The issue here is not RedState, but a larger issue among conservatives as we keep growing new and expanding existing outlets for reporting the news. With our jobs board up (if you haven’t noticed), I want to help put solid conservatives in reportorial positions throughout the movement. Now is the time to stop | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ RedState Edging Out Human Events?
The Politico did a story yesterday regarding Human Events — the financially struggling conservative publication whose parent company is Eagle Publishing. According to the story, if Eagle Publishing does not find a buyer for Human Events, they may have to shut down its operations. In explaining what led to the financial struggles at Human Events, Joe Guerriero, an executive at Eagle Publishing, mentioned the emerging | Read More »

I Think CNN.com Badly Mischaracterizes This Site
I tried to ignore this piece at CNN.com by Tom Cohen, but given how it continues to crop up in my inbox from people on both the left and right, I think it is worth responding to.I reached out to my friends and colleagues over at CNN.com to tell them I thought both I and RedState were being badly mischaracterized. While making an edit to | Read More »
Um . . . Heck Yeah We Are the Latter
The hand wringing continues about the 2012 loss. This time it has moved to “conservative media.” Included in the Buzzfeed article is this: John Podhoretz, the editor of Commentary and a prolific tweeter, rejected the notion that Obama’s reelection represented a failure of the conservative media. But he said that as the GOP tries to widen its tent in the coming months and years, conservative | Read More »
Is It Time to Roll Up the Welcome Mat Here?
Barack Obama won the election. He did not win by stealing the election. Voter irregularities always happen. It is one reason we support voter ID rules. But even in the worse scenario of reports out there, there were not enough tales of voter irregularities to matter nationwide. This is another benefit and built in safeguard of the electoral college. Barack Obama won. He won by | Read More »
Dear Redstate, An Important Message From A Minority Voter
I’m not sure where to start, but since everyone here is concerned about how GOP can reach out to the minority voters with a winning message that will resonate with them. So, that’s where I will start. I am one of few minority voters who voted for Romney.

KRAUTHAMMER’S “The Choice” — Historic Conservative Survival and Liberty or…
Brevity with a clear message is the essence of intelligent communication. Through a historical lens, Krauthammer points out, in concise terms, what this election may mean. Tuesday will offer either a “turn around” for America, and thus renew as Reagan put in 1964, “the last best hope for man on earth,” or in a downward spiral American freedom and growth may become nothing more than darkness at | Read More »
I want to update the community on Disqus and our use of it.What you must understand first is that we have a growth plan for RedState over the next few years and we needed to push our redesign forward now, before election traffic, because up until the redesign launch RedState was crashing every day. It might not have been noticeable to you, but each day | Read More »
Status Update on RedState
I’ve been MIA all week due to the RNC. I have a backlog of emails to wade through, many of which are user complaints based on the redesign.The good news is that most everyone likes the redesign. The bad news is that most everyone hates the tech problems associated with it, including Disqus.We made the decision to move to Disqus because we have over 1 | Read More »
Hey RedState Readers, You Can Post Now
One of the odd bugs we have had to deal with this week with the relaunch is one that prevented non-front page contributors from posting diaries via a front page link.That is fixed now.At the top right you’ll see a link that says “create new post”. Click it and you can do as the link says.Sorry it took so long, but now it is there.
Redesign Open Thread
Comments, complaints, and thoughts about the redesign? Put them here. We’re still working. It was my call to put it up live haints, boogers, warts, and all otherwise we’d just keep tweaking and never get it up.I take responsibility for that. So have at it here. I’ll monitor this thread.
