Save the Date

From August 12th to August 14th, please join Governor Nikki Haley and RedState.com for the 2011 RedState Gathering in Charleston, South Carolina. We’ll have plenty of speakers, plenty of fun, and embrace the rich southern hospitality the low country is known for. More details will be | Read More »
Unions Sue Nikki Haley in Her First Week in Office
Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina and Redstate Gathering attendee, has barely stepped foot into office and the AFL-CIO has deemed fit to use their dues to sue her for expressing her intent to prevent job-killing unions from invading South Carolina which incidentally is a right to work state. The Governor’s response is refreshingly honest and bold as she essentially tells them to shove their | Read More »
Nikki Haley’s Inaugural Speech.
Nikki Haley was sworn in today as South Carolina governor, and of all the annoyances that the Left has been trying to inflict upon us for the last few days over their petulant inability to dictate what can and cannot be said, this one grates most: they made me forget that briefly. We at RedState have been waiting for this moment for quite some time, | Read More »
Lindsey Graham Gives Away the Game
There has been a lot of speculation this week about why the GOP rolled over in the Senate on virtually every issue. From Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’s repeal to START to you name it — the GOP became the party of capitulation. So much so that even Lindsey Graham is blasting the Senate GOP “for a ‘capitulation … of dramatic proportions’ to Democrats and Senate Majority | Read More »
DeMint Champions Taxpayers, Stands Firm for Earmark Reform
[promoted from the diaries by haystack because...well, you figure it out] Note: This op-ed appeared in the Greenville News of Greenville, South Carolina on Monday, November 15, 2010. We are fighting two wars overseas. We are in the middle of an entitlement crisis that could bankrupt this country. The national debt is simply out of control. And your elected leaders voted to spend $500,000 of | Read More »
Stand With Nikki Haley
Friends, in just a few days we have the chance to be a part of a national earthquake election to help save our country from fiscal disaster. On Tuesday, we have the opportunity to elect principled conservatives that will be part of the next generation of American leaders. I’ve been proud to support conservative candidates around the nation and in my home state that will | Read More »
What is the sound of $2.5M flushing?
…this. South Carolina Democratic candidate Rob Miller has apparently adopted Republicans’ “Fire Pelosi” mantra. According to a report by The Associated Press, Miller — who is hoping to oust Rep. Joe Wilson (R) in the South Carolina 2nd district race — said Wednesday that he would not vote to keep Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as Speaker in the 112th Congress. Via, of all things, @markos, | Read More »
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 »
