The educational establishment in this country is greatly biased against parents who want options. Kids who are sent to unionized government schools are presumed to be safe and to be getting a good education, but kids who go to church schools or (gasp) get homeschooled have to jump through extra hoops. Governor Greg Abbott is fighting back in Texas though. He’s appointed a homeschooling parent | Read More »
While society continues to celebrate post-birth diversity, the fight for the very basic, biological right to life for the unborn rages on. The Center for Medical Progress has unearthed a passion in the pro-life field, and that is driving state government, supported by the people, to vote on funding for the behemoth of death, Planned Parenthood. The latest state to do so is Ohio, as | Read More »
It is worth noting that the fight against Planned Parenthood is not over. I say this because in many ways, it seems the extent of the fight in some people’s minds hinged on either legislative action against PP or a strong shakedown of Cecile Richards in front of the House committee. Neither of those things occurred. I don’t expect the spineless members of Congress to | Read More »

I have long had a soft spot for Gov. Rick Perry. I became aware of Gov. Perry at the first RedState Gathering. Over the years, as I learned more and more about his governance of Texas, Perry has grown on me. I am a big fan of Perry’s four principles of governing: Do not spend all the money. Tax and regulatory policy must be fair | Read More »
Greg Abbott is the man who has to fill the massive shoes left by Rick Perry as Governor of Texas. Fortunately for Texans, it appears he is more than up to the task. He is also a great friend to us here at RedState, so it was great that we were able to have him speak at this year’s Gathering. Here’s what he had to | Read More »
Thus far, the 2015 RedState Gathering has been an amazing experience. We’ve had plenty of great speakers, whether they are running for President or not. As you might expect, Rick Perry appearance has been one of the highlights of the Gathering so far. We know he can give a great speech, but I believe he’s probably gotten more applause than anyone else we’ve had on | Read More »
Pardon me if I was the last person to hear about this, but I was glad over the weekend to read that Governor Mary Fallin refuses to remove the Ten Commandments from the Oklahoma capitol, despite some crazy court insisting otherwise. She explained her decision by saying “Oklahoma is a state where we respect the rule of law, and we will not ignore the state | Read More »
Rick Perry thinks that cities should not be paid by the feds to ignore federal immigration policy.Read More »
Texas has a stockpile of gold. That gold is kept in New York City in an underground vault managed by HSBC. Texas has decided it wants all its gold back in Texas. Earlier this year, Governor Greg Abbott signed a law that had sailed through the Texas Legislature. It sets up a depository facility in Texas that will house all of Texas’s gold inside Texas. | Read More »
I’ve been following and writing about this case since it was being considered in the Texas legislature.
Now it’s being called “biggest abortion case at the Supreme Court in nearly 25 years.”
Last night the Supreme Court temporarily blocked a pro-life Texas law from going into effect, allowing the abortion industry to remain in its unregulated utopian death camp, walled off from basic health and safety standards, as the case likely comes before the high Court.
It all began with Kermit Gosnell.Read More »
Texas’s Attorney General Ken Paxton has released a letter with guidance that I suspect we will see around the country. The question is whether county clerks, county employees, justices of the peace, etc. must be compelled to issue a license for a gay marriage. The answer, as it should be, is no dependent on facts. If there are others in the office who can do | Read More »
Rand Paul offers us his take on why we are having such a recoveryless recovery from the 2008 recession. He believes we are being hamstrung by our current levels and methodologies to collect Federal tax revenues. He employed Stephen Moore and numerous other experts to design a tax plan that would replace the current code and basically allow him to gut the IRS. Mr. Moore | Read More »
When Rick Perry announced his run for office, the emergence of a raft of memes from the rabid left was a foregone conclusion. They despise Rick Perry, just as they despise all of Texas. Because Wendy Davis. Because guns. Because Bush. And because Rick Perry already ran in 2012. Like the sun rising in the east and setting in a carefully concealed sound stage run | Read More »
