Merry Christmas

From all of us here at RedState to all of you, we wish you a very Merry Christmas! — Erick The Gospel of John 1:1-18 “And the Word became flesh ...

Pastor Saeed Abedini is Spending his Third Christmas in an Iranian Prison

Hopefully, for most of you reading this site, Christmas is a warm and joyous time with family as we celebrate our Savior’s birth and exchange gifts. However, it’s important to remember that the many Christians around the world suffering from persecution won’t have such an opportunity. America’s Saeed Abedini is one of the latter. He is an Iranian American Christian Pastor and former Muslim who has been | Read More »

Dynamic scoring takes another step forward in Congress.

Well, this is a promising first step: “House Republicans are moving to increase the use of dynamic scoring through a rules change that would require long-term estimates of the economic effects of major legislation. The macroeconomic estimates required under the rule would include the projected effects of legislation on economic output, employment and capital stock, resulting in an assessment of how a proposal would cause | Read More »

Goodwill toward men

Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men.  That’s not just a hopeful prayer, it’s a formula.  Peace cannot be long sustained without goodwill. The third ingredient in the formula, according to Luke, is “Glory to God in the highest heaven.”  That’s unfashionable to mention these days.  The critic of religion – all of them in general, or specific examples – will rush to point out that | Read More »

So, France is Scrapping its 75% Tax Rate

France is providing us with a very good case study on what happens when you raise taxes too high. The 75% tax rate imposed upon the richest French residents* was a centerpiece of Socialist Francois Hollande’s campaign for the French Presidency. At any rate, having found out just what happens when you raise taxes to such draconian levels, the country is now quietly scrapping it. | Read More »

Why God Used Angels To Announce Christmas

Erick wrote a post yesterday titled “To Understand the Beginning of the End, You Must Understand the End of the Beginning” which beautifully described God’s covenants with Abraham, Moses and Israel, and the connection to Christmas. I posted a comment posing the question “Did you ever wonder why God used angels to speak to Mary and Zechariah and Joseph?” with a possible answer. This post is the expanded version of that answer with lots of Scripture to back it up and an interesting twist at the end.

Christmas From Eve to Mary

As we wind down for the holidays and I gear up to fill in for Rush Limbaugh (12/26, 12/30, and 1/2), I will be doing a special presentation on WSB Radio for Christmas Eve. Putting my seminary learning to good use, I spend an hour tying Eve to Mary, explaining the significant of the smoking pot to Abraham, and breaking down why in 200 AD | Read More »

George HW Bush hospitalized.

For shortness of breath; obviously, when somebody’s ninety you don’t want to take any chances.  Hopefully it’ll be nothing and the former President will be back home in time for Christmas. Until then, our prayers and good wishes for him and his family.

The Daily Beast ‘realizes’ that the Black Bloc blackshirts have infected the #ferguson protests.

The Black Bloc uses protests the way that a digger wasp reproduces. Now it’s the Ferguson protests’ turn.

Stop hoping and start doing

There’s a good reason the term “community organizer” has become a sarcastic joke.  As a class, they haven’t been covering themselves with glory.  The term has become more-or-less synonymous with “left-wing agitator’ or “political hustler.” But it doesn’t have to be that way.  The negative impression is created by the community organizers who develop strong political connections, rake in a ton of money, and rise | Read More »
