Rick Perry Speaks at #RSG15
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 »
These states are standing up to runaway courts
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 »

Beam Me Up Scotty. The funniest line in any news article this week.
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 »
Abortion Industry Opposes Women’s Health and Safety to Protect Sacred Profits at Supreme Court
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.

Oh Brave New World
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 »
Does Rand Paul Have A Fix For Our Messed Up Tax Code?
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 »
Rick Perry’s ACTUAL Legacy
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 »
Abortion Industry’s “Hail Satan” Lawsuit Against Texas Pro-Life Law Goes Down in Flames
They chanted, “Hail Satan,” as they worshiped at the altar of abortion.
They tried to drown out the voice of the people to defeat a lifesaving law. They failed.
This was the bill the Left abhorred, abortionists loathed, and the Culture of Death feared.

Rick Perry Enters the Arena
Today in Dallas, TX, Rick Perry will declare his candidacy for the President of the United States. It is his second time. Last time, Perry’s announced at the RedState Gathering in Charleston, SC in August of 2011 and surged quickly in the field to first place with almost a third of the Republican primary voters ready to back him.

Fracking might not be Cause of Those Earthquakes After All
One of the favorite stories trotted out by the media and opponents of fracking is that the process causes earthquakes. Unsurprisingly, it looks like this is yet another case of the media and the Left relying on the narrative instead of scientific facts. Per an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, geologist Craig Pollard of Cinco Resources told people gathered for a presentation hosted by | Read More »
Defending Marriage & Religious Liberty: Where Is Texas?
“Texas has two weeks left to stand up for religious liberty.” It sure didn’t take long to miss Rick Perry’s leadership in Texas. As I have written here many times, there is a war waging against people of faith and the values we hold. Nowhere is that more evident than the war on marriage that soon likely will culminate in another Supreme Court decree, this | Read More »
