RedState's Dear Leader.


    To Hell With You People

    Like a recurrence of herpes, Mitt Romney donors have come in from their five star resorts again, taken their silver feet out of their mouths again, and yet again beat the drum for Mitt Romney 2016. These people have all the makings of a cult without a comet or a Scientologist to take them away from us. Seriously, to hell with you people. You guys | Read More »

    The Beginning of the End

    The beginning of the end of the Republican Party has started. On Friday, I told you the Republican Party is dying. Then, yesterday, Ross Douthat in the New York Times echoed my key point. Mine was that the Republican leaders in Washington would see the decline of Donald Trump as proof that they need do nothing to change. Like the Bourbons of France, they’d forget | Read More »

    Mt. McKinley Is Still There

    Barack Obama has decided, by the executive order, to rename Mt. McKinley, North America’s highest peak, Denali. That is the traditional name of the mountain, but it was changed back in 1917 or so to honor President McKinley. The Alaska Delegation, including the Republicans, wanted it to go back to Denali. The Ohio delegation was blocking the legislation. President McKinley was from Ohio. I will | Read More »

    Outlasting Ted Cruz

    I wrote earlier (and somewhat cynically) that I think Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% is subtly sending a message that if the establishment must lose, they’d rather lose to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% than Donald Trump. They, like me, see the completely destruction of the GOP as a meaningful political party coming with Trump or, more and more, | Read More »

    The Sound and Fury of the Monster as Its Arms Stretched Toward Us

    The Sound and Fury of the Monster as Its Arms Stretched Toward Us

    “Recipes in old places spared destruction are now made by new hands and do not taste quite the same. The lagniappe is different.”There in the hospital that night, she was in her mother’s arms being comforted and giving comfort. Newly born with the new baby smell, Evelyn slept in her mother’s arms as the monster stretched its arms toward us. The hospital staff had pulled | Read More »


    John Boehner Endorses Ted Cruz For President

    John Boehner Endorses Ted Cruz For President

    Perhaps I am overly cynical, but when I heard that Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% referred to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% as a “jacka–” at a fundraiser in Colorado, my first thought was that he knows the establishment’s goose is cooked. Between Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, he’d prefer Cruz. Boehner, to | Read More »

    Republican Party, R.I.P. (1854 – 2016)

    Republican Party, R.I.P. (1854 - 2016)

    “[I]f Donald Trump fades away the party leaders will conclude they beat him and the crazy base. They will, like the Bourbons of France, learn nothing and forget nothing.” In 1854, confronted by the moral evil of slavery and the inability of the Whigs to provide clarity against it, the Republican Party formed. Whig Party leaders either shifted their party allegiances or quit politics altogether. | Read More »

    Donald Trump Is Not a Racist. Don’t Go Back to 2005, Republicans.

    Donald Trump Is Not a Racist.  Don't Go Back to 2005, Republicans.

    While I continue to admire Donald Trump’s ability to command attention at long, rambling, unscripted press conferences, I still am not persuaded he will be the next President of the United States. Nonetheless, the GOP establishment in Washington has decided to treat Donald Trump the way the Bush White House treated many conservative leaders in 2005 during the immigration fight. They’re labeling him racist for | Read More »

    What Will Be There?

    Barack Obama is looking for an architect for his library. What exactly will be in the library other than his Nobel Peace Prize? Mounds of shredded documents? Stacks of erased hard drives? A taxidermied Valarie Jarrett? The “most transparent administration” in American history has actually been the least transparent and I suspect before they leave there’ll be a burn party to rival that of the | Read More »

    We Will Not Legislate Away Evil

    Yesterday morning tragedy unfolded in Virginia as a reporter and camera man for a local television station were gunned down by a man intent, according to his claims, of inciting the race war Dylan Roof had so badly wanted. Last night, in Sunset, LA, a man killed a police officer with a gun then stabbed three women. One of the women died. The gunman from | Read More »

    Donald Trump Got the Better of Jorge Ramos and the Media Knows It

    Donald Trump threw Univision’s Jorge Ramos out of a press conference in Iowa yesterday. Ramos is a self-absorbed, self-righteous leftwing activist the media allows to act as a journalist. He is more agenda driven than the entire cast of MSNBC. The media is outraged!!! outraged!!! that Donald Trump threw the guy out — never mind that he let Ramos back in to ask questions. Trump | Read More »

    ESPN Punishes Curt Schilling for Taking on Radical Islam

    This is really outrageous. Curt Schilling pointed out how few people in Nazi Germany really identified with the Nazi Party to point out that even though so few people identify with radical Islam there is a problem. His point was sound. But it outrageously outraged ESPN, a network that has put political correctness ahead of truth and news. So they’ve yanked him from a little | Read More »

    This is The Single Most Amazing Thing About Donald Trump’s Supporters

    Donald Trump leads in the polling averages by about 22%. In some individual states he is higher. In some he is lower. Nationally, Trump hit a ceiling of about twenty-five percent and has trended down from there. But, he is still in the lead. I have noticed a trend with Trump’s supporters and it is the single most amazing thing about his supporters. They recite | Read More »

    Congressional Republicans To Keep Organ Harvesting Alive and Babies Dead

    Congressional Republicans are coming up with every excuse imaginable to avoid having to defund Planned Parenthood. Right now they’re going with the “let’s investigate” card. They think that if they just probe deeply enough they’ll have enough ammunition to attack the Democrats. Yes, that would be the exact same Democrats who have seen the same videos everyone else has seen and decided it is no | Read More »

    Note to Jeb Bush — This is a bad idea [UPDATED]

    The Bush team reached out to me and said The Hill got the report below wrong. In particular, the campaign tells me that Governor Bush “said we needed more options and state flexibility and name checked Tennessee promise” as an example of state flexibility. He does not support a new federal entitlement program, but rather flexibility for states to experiment. Whew! ——————————— Jeb Bush has | Read More »
