    Ed Schultz and MSNBC Have Not Apologized to Neal Boortz Yet

    Yesterday, I provided conclusive proof that MSNBC’s Ed Schultz had doctored a Neal Boortz quote to make it look like Neal Boortz was advocating white people in Atlanta murder black people. In reality, Boortz was advocating that victims of carjackings get conceal-carry permits and gun down the thugs trying to car jack them. Ed Schultz willfully and maliciously left out the key part of Boortz’s | Read More »

    Embracing the Bilderberger Conspiracy

    Unbeknownst to any of us here, there seems to be a great concern from a few concern trolls on this site that we Bilderbergers are on the rise. It’s not like we’ve been hiding. We’ve got our own website for pete’s sake.As much as we here at RedState are desperate to raise capital to open a chain of Build-A-Burger restaurants where the food is so | Read More »

    Silence of the Lambs

    Yesterday, I called on conservatives and conservative organizations to actually dare to retaliate against Republican members of Congress who refuse to cut, cap, and balance before raising the debt ceiling. If any Republican dares to raise the debt ceiling without first ensuring (1) cuts in the budget; (2) caps in spending; and (3) the Lee-Cornyn-Hatch Balanced Budget Amendment makes it out to the states, conservatives | Read More »

    Ed Schultz Doctored a Neal Boortz Quote to Accuse Boortz of Advocating Murder

    My WSB colleague and guru, the Talkmaster Neal Boortz, created a bit of controversy this past week over comments he made about shooting thugs in Atlanta. The controversy actually blew up because of Ed Schultz at MSNBC who claimed Boortz was advocating the murder of urban youths in Atlanta. In fact, you can see this screen shot from the Schutlz show highlighting Neal Boortz’s controversial | Read More »

    The Feckless Are Phoning In Now

    I’m already hearing whining and lamenting about my post this morning on conservatives’ need to do more than pledge. It’s only 10 a.m. and I’m getting the “how dare you question my integrity” emails and the “who the heck do you think you are” emails.”But . . . meow . . . I’m a 501(c)(3). I can’t do anything . . . meow.”That’s typical of | Read More »

    Mark Amodei Comes Out Swinging

    Mark Amodei is the Republican pick for the special election in Nevada 2 to replace now Senator Heller. I suspect we’re going to hear a lot of Republicans sounding a similar theme. It’s just that Amodei’s first commercial is extremely timely.You can learn more about him here.

    Are Conservatives & Conservative Organizations in D.C. Actually Feckless Wimps?

    A number of conservatives and conservative groups in Washington, D.C. are pushing yet another pledge. This one is to cut, cap, and balance. They want you to pledge to urge your Senator and Congressman to oppose any debt limit unless all three of the following conditions are met: (1) substantial cuts in spending; (2) enforceable spending caps; and (3) passage of the Lee-Cornyn-Hatch Balanced Budget | Read More »

    On Jon Huntsman: See, I Told You So

    My objection to Jon Huntsman remains simple: while serving at the pleasure of the President of the United States, he began plotting against the President of the United States. It matters not who the President is. It matters that the man was disloyal to his President while serving as his mouth piece to our biggest strategic adversary in the world.Many people responded to my objection | Read More »

    We May Or May Not Be ‘Ultraconservative,’ But We Certainly Didn’t Call the SBA Pledge ‘Ridiculous’

    The pseudo-conservative Washington Post blogger, Jenn Rubin, has decided to label RedState as ‘ultra-conservative’. I can only guess that it is because we advocate hanging the traitor Jonathan Pollard instead of setting him free like Rubin does and also because we here at RedState embrace Jim DeMint as a standard bearer for conservatism while Rubin would prefer to take an exacto knife and excise from | Read More »

    Happy Father’s Day

    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I got home around 2am, but got to sleep in my own bed. Then got woken up by the kids at 7 . . . and again at 8 and 9 and 10 and finally decided having them lay on top of me and pretend alligators were eating me was enough.I got out of bed at | Read More »

    Herman Cain Resurgent At Right Online #RO11

    I was critical after last week’s debate, not so much of Herman Cain per se, but of the fact that he has been unable to show he is competent in handling policy.Right Online and the Republican Leadership Conference both show it doesn’t really matter right now with the crowds. They love him.In both New Orleans and Minneapolis, Cain pounded the Obama Administration, its profligate spending, | Read More »
