RedState Gathering ends with ‘Fire From the Heartland’
The RedState Gathering in Austin ended with a special screening of the movie “Fire From the Heartland.” The film was produced by the conservative filmmakers at Citizens United. It is a powerful documentary about America at a crossroads and the women who are leading the Conservative movement. The women in the movie include Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, Phyllis Schlafly, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michele Bachmann, | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Nikki Haley.
These will be filtering out over the next couple of days: the bulk of them may not even be put up until after I can get back home. In the meantime, here’s our quick talk with SC GOV nominee Nikki Haley. Nikki’s site, of course, is here.
John Spratt (D, SC-05) and his American Taliban.
It sounds like that book will get at least one South Carolinian purchaser: Spratt’s campaign manager Wayne Wingate, who is completely behind the idea that Osama bin Laden would receive widespread support from Republicans in SC-05. An opinion that Spratt apparently shares, given that he didn’t immediately turn on Wingate and lay him out on the ground for saying filthy trash like that about Spratt’s | Read More »
Two Republicans who are going to be Governors
There was a time when I thought about Nikki Haley’s campaign for governor every day. I’d scramble to find whatever polling I could get my hands on and read the news to try to explain any trends I might be seeing in the polls. Now, though, the South Carolina Governor’s race joins that of Republican Brian Sandoval’s in Nevada as non-competitive barring a major event | Read More »

DoJ: HIV transmission a *civil right*?
(Via Instapundit) This is a joke, right? Surely not even this administration is going to let people die of AIDS – even if they’re convicts – by going after humane correctional policies designed to keep uninfected convicts from being infected while still providing the infected treatment and counseling. Even if it does mean removing terminally ill, infectious convicts from the general prison population. That’s just | Read More »
Greene: ‘He knows how you feel, ’cause he’s unemployed, too’
Political observers will attest that the majority of campaign ads are banal rehashings of tempered stump speeches. But we were greeted this week with a pleasant–and yet remotely disturbing–break from that pattern, with the video “Greene is on the scene,” a parody of South Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene’s campaign missteps set to a retro hip-hop tune. The New York Times reported Thursday the | Read More »
Dear RedState Readers
We joined the movement early. In the entire United States of America and all the candidates I am proud to support and proud of, Nikki Haley is at the top of the list. If you haven’t donated to her campaign, I sure hope you will consider it.
This is What Karma Looks Like: Alvin Greene Cleared
After Alvin Greene won the South Carolina Democrats’ Senate nomination, House Democrat Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) immediately declared Alvin Green a “Republican plant”. There was just no way in Clyburn’s mind that Greene could have come up with the $10,440.00 qualifying fee on his own. Well, you know what? The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) has concluded its investigation into Greene. Turns out Greene | Read More »
Republican Statists Reveal Themselves
Hogan mentioned Bob Bennett’s comments earlier. Bennett thought it beneath him and outside conservatism to think the constitution may limit him, a senator, from legislating. Well, over in South Carolina, Daniel Foster points out another example, defeated Republican Bob Inglis. Inglis, defeated in a Republican primary by tea party activists, has shared what he really thinks of conservatives — they are racist, bigotted, and easily | Read More »
Nikki Haley (R CAND, SC-GOV): T-1 and counting.
The runoff elections are tomorrow, so if you like reform and live in South Carolina, get thee hence to the polls. Nikki feels good about the election, but this is no time to stop. Nikki’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Better the Christian Hating Lesbian Than the Black Man
Stuff like this is probably why Alvin Greene is the Democrats’ Senate candidate in South Carolina. Greene, a man with no home, no money, and no job, beat the Democrats’ hand picked candidate for the right to lose to Jim DeMint in South Carolina. The Democrats are pounding their fists on the table claiming it was a dirty trick. This is an intentional distraction. Why | Read More »
The Christianity Scam
The Christ died. On the third day he rose again from the dead. There will be a last day and he will return to judge the living and the dead. As the Bible says, “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Cor. 9:22). | Read More »
Guess Who Is Ahead in South Carolina?
Easy answer. Nikki Haley is leading the Democrat 55% to 34% according to Rasmussen. Nice. Consider this an open thread.
State of the Race: Tim Scott (R CAND, SC-01).
Tim is the front-runner in the GOP primary runoff for SC-01, and he took the time to talk with us about the state of the race and why he’s running. Tim’s site is here: he’s a state representative and former Charleston County official. The runoff is June 22nd. There’s been a good deal of interest among RedState’s readers about this race thus far, and I | Read More »
Failed Gubernatorial Nominee Goes Nuclear On The State Legislative Black Caucus
South Carolina just gets better and better. I mean, just when you think it’s run out of insanity, what with flamingly “southern” Republican lobbyists and lying bloggers trying to take out Nikki Haley, State Senator Jake Knotts resorting to racial slurs, and a random unemployed dude landing the Democrat nomination for US Senate – not to mention a sitting Governor who goes missing and shows up | Read More »
