RedState's Dear Leader.


    Donald Trump Or Third Party Before John Kasich

    John Kasich is an insufferable douche who thinks Jesus told him to expand government in Ohio, particularly Obamacare, where now costs are going up, government spending is going up (despite what Kasich says), and Kasich has hired Democrats to make him likable. About the only people who like Kasich are the Circle of Jerks who make up the DC-NYC media and are overwhelmingly Democrat. So | Read More »

    The uncompromising conservatism of Erick Erickson

    I am on the cover of this month’s Atlanta magazine (one of three people). And yes, I really do want a cooking show. If you want to find out more about the post-Trump fall out, what it’s like to be on radio in the biggest talk-radio market in the country, why I want a cooking show, etc. go check this out.

    It Is Not Just Scott Walker

    It Is Not Just Scott Walker

    There are lots and lots of analyses about Scott Walker dropping out. Yes, he put the people closest to him in a Super PAC that could not talk to him, then surrounded himself with people who do not know him. Yes, there were gaffes and flip-flops galore. There were lots of fundamental problems with Scott Walker. He was the guy who had lots of rich | Read More »

    I Agree With Ben Carson

    Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution contains this provision: The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or | Read More »

    The Fictions of This World

    I’m not actually going to link to Salon for this. You can go find it there yourself. The reason I’m not going to link to it is because Salon is a for profit corporation of barely any stock value. It depends on fomenting outrageous pieces of writing, including defenses of pedophiles, to generate traffic to help its stock value. I won’t participate in that. But | Read More »

    The One Simple Thing Barack Obama Could Do To Stop Getting Accused of Being a Muslim

    Simple: act like a Christian. Barack Obama keeps getting accused of being a closet muslim by some people. I actually don’t think that’s true. I think Barack Obama is a secular atheist who only talked God and religion to get people to vote for him. The man has repeatedly turned a blind eye to Christian persecution, his administration has been deeply hostile to people of | Read More »

    A Horrific Article About National Right to Life

    You need to read this story. It is just horrific and shows how low National Right to Life has fallen. They’re putting issues of access and politics in Washington ahead of their core mission. Despite National Right to Life’s silence on the issue, there are a growing chorus of conservative aides who say the group has become nothing more than an arm of the Republican | Read More »

    Where Do Walker Donors Go?

    Just a quick funny story. On September 17th, I put up this tweet: Lots of different people all sending me the same rumor about a particular campaign manager caught indecently at the Ohio debate.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) September 17, 2015 It is a rumor I had heard from multiple, unrelated sources. It is also a rumor that caused me to spend a good bit of | Read More »

    Ted Cruz vs. Marco Rubio: This Is Where We Are Headed

    Ted Cruz vs. Marco Rubio: This Is Where We Are Headed

    The sharp and rapid rise of Carly Fiorina is, for me at least, another indicator that polling right now is volatile and flawed. I actually think if primary season started tomorrow, we’d find the last men standing would be Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94%, with Cruz having a slight advantage — for now | Read More »

    No, Donald Trump Did Not Have To Correct A Questioner

    No, Donald Trump Did Not Have To Correct A Questioner

    I’ve more than once seen plants at events who ask awkward questions to try to catch someone on tape. I myself have been subject to that on more than one occasion. Someone asked Donald Trump a question about President Obama being a Muslim and the media world has collectively freaked out. Donald Trump is under no obligation to correct someone asking a question. He does | Read More »

    Barack Obama is a Moral Coward and Fluffer of Totalitarians

    President Obama has decided to greet Pope Francis with transgendered activists, the first gay Episcopal Bishop who is now already divorced, and activist Catholic nuns. The Vatican is not happy about it and is pushing back. On the eve of Pope Francis’s arrival in the U.S., the Vatican has taken offense at the Obama administration’s decision to invite to the pope’s welcome ceremony transgender activists, | Read More »

    Blame Hillary, Says Obama, As He Passes the Buck

    Barack Obama is the Steve Urkel of American politics. “Did I do that?” he whines. No, it is not his fault. If you have not heard, Barack Obama came up with a brilliant plan to fight ISIS. Instead of actually just blowing them up, he decided to spend the time training Syrian rebels. All sorts of people ridiculed his plan. And now, after millions and | Read More »

    The Politico Shows Just How Terrible Hillary Clinton Is

    Nobody seems to know what that old lady from New York has actually accomplished. It is pretty telling that the Politico has to run a fluff piece on her accomplishments and no one can agree what they are. Some people even think her accomplishments include a reset button with Russia and Libya. That’s just amazing. What’s even more funny is that some of the Democrats | Read More »

    25 million to ZERO

    It is at minimum 25 million to ZERO and it could be as high as 45 million to ZERO. That is the number of people who have watched a Republican Presidential debate to the number of people who have watched a Democrat Presidential debate. It’s not like the Democrats are without a primary process. There’s Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, and some old lady | Read More »

    Can Donald Trump Please Get Us Those 25 Stories From 2003?

    If Trump wants to rely on his positions in 2003, the rest of us should too. He made it fair game last night. In 2003, Donald Trump was a bleeding heart liberal Democrat. He supported Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 15%. He supported the Clintons. He supported amnesty. He supported universal health care. He supported abortion rights. For months, Trump supporters have said | Read More »
