RedState's Dear Leader.


    Donald Trump Needs a New Season

    Ashley Parker and Amy Chozick at the New York Times have written a piece on how Donald Trump appears to be slowing down. Here’s one of the quotes they use from me. “It’s kind of a like a season of TV shows — eventually people burn out on them,” said Erick Erickson, a conservative commentator who runs “We’ve had a season of Trump and | Read More »

    Barack Obama is Vladimir Putin’s Submissive Gimp

    “Today we are seeing what leading from behind really means.”A story came out the other day that some beta males are now lecturing around the country that if you look too masculine it is unhealthy and potentially sexist. These guys who squat to pee really do not appreciate it when men behave like men and look like men. These are also Obama voters who have | Read More »

    Less Than Five Points

    We’re talking less than five points. That is the polling gap in Kentucky between Matt Bevin and the liberal Democrat he is running against. Have you donated to Matt yet? Less than five points and the race is not for another month — this is totally winnable. We need to get Matt Bevin fully funded. Look, there is not another campaign right now in the | Read More »

    The Fickle Spinelessness of a Wet Noodle Choice

    So that’s how it’s going to be, I guess. We get Mr. Good Hair vs. Mr. Ambitious. In the race to replace Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, it comes down to Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 61% vs. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81%. So many of the House Republicans, including the conservatives, are too risk adverse to | Read More »

    Have You Chipped In Yet?

    Folks, I’m not kidding. We can flip Kentucky to our side this year. Have you donated to Matt Bevin yet? We need to do our part. Matt Bevin is an American success story. He and his wife run the last American bell manufacturer. Seriously. Does your church have a church bell? It either came from China or Matt Bevin made it. You guys need to | Read More »

    Let Them All Debate

    Jim Gilmore has not registered a blip on the screen. He polls at 0%. Scott Walker has exited the stage. Rick Perry has exited the stage. In the Real Clear Politics average, there are now 14 candidates who register in the polls in terms of the Republican nomination. It is time to put them all on stage. Unfortunately, the CNBC-GOP debate has further shrunk the | Read More »

    All Good Things . . .

    The cat is now completely out of the bag, so I might as well fess up. I am leaving at the end of this year. June 3rd was my 40th birthday and also my 10th year on the payroll as Editor-in-Chief of RedState. I emailed the corporate overlords that day and told them it was time to start planning a transition. Frankly, I wanted to | Read More »

    I Have a Concern About Jason Chaffetz

    I have a legitimate concern about Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81% running for Speaker of the House. Chaffetz was the Boehner lapdog who fired Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) 84% for daring to stand up to Speaker Boehner. That act, of course, started Meadows down the path that has led to the resignation of [mc_name name=’Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)’ chamber=’house’ | Read More »

    Matt Bevin for Governor

    Matt Bevin for Governor

    I backed Matt Bevin in his Senate race. He is a profoundly good guy. But when he ran for Governor, my impression of the race was that the state was ready to move on. And I did not back him. I should have. The top two candidates began beating the crap out of each other in a nasty, nasty way and Matt just showed the | Read More »

    This Still Bugs Me — How Obama Treats Muslims vs. Christians

    If the shooter in Oregon had been a muslim, you know damn well the President of the United States would have rushed to the television to tell us all that we cannot judge a religion by one person. If the victims had all been muslims, you know too that President Obama would have rushed to the televisions of America to tell us all that we | Read More »

    Welcome, Leon

    The post title is somewhat facetious. Leon has been here for a number of years now. I remember when people on the front page started agitating for him to be on the front page. There was no way on earth I was going to allow him on the front page with a user name like “LeonMachoNacho”. Apparently, he really likes nachos. But I finally relented | Read More »

    Barack Obama’s Rhetoric and the Rise of the Rampage Killing

    “The rate of mass murder rampages in this country has gone up with Barack Obama in office. People are, in fact, bringing guns to fights…”There has been an increase in rampages in the United States since Barack Obama took office. He wants to blame guns, blame Republicans, and blame the NRA. But those groups were on the national scene before Barack Obama took office. In | Read More »

    Abortion Barbie Supports the Woman Who Aborted the Benghazi Rescue

    Well this is rather fitting: Proud to have @wendydavis on Team Hillary.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 2, 2015 The woman who used her position in the state legislature to benefit her law firm is backing the woman who used her position in the State Department to benefit her family and friends. The woman who used her husband’s money to get her law degree before | Read More »

    The One Question Someone Should Ask Barack Obama

    The next time the President comes down from Olympus to receive the sacrifices and prayers of the American press corps, they should ask him just one question. This one: Mr. President, you had a majority of the House of Representatives and United States Senate for two years when Republicans could not block or obstruct you. Why didn’t you pursue gun control legislation then instead of | Read More »

    The Shooter Targeted Christians. But How Did He Get His Guns?

    The media is willingly rushing to demand gun control after yesterday’s shooting in Oregon. They are going to ignore that the shooter was targeting Christians. We now have too many eye witnesses saying this to ignore the truth. The media will say we would not know this, but for press reports, but they will ignore on going coverage as they would have kept up if | Read More »
