RedState's Dear Leader.


    Adam Laxalt Takes on Obama. Sandoval Objects.

    Adam Laxalt is challenging the federal government. This time it is related to federal sage grouse land use restrictions. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is worth noting that in a state where federal land control is massive and resented, the Republican Governor, Brian Sandoval is opposed to challenging Obama. What makes this so significant is that Laxalt was able to | Read More »

    ISIS Is Islamic and Bruce Jenner is a Man

    “France has done more damage to ISIS in one day than Barack Obama, a man who thinks Bruce Jenner is a woman and ISIS is not Islamic, has done in months of alleged conflict.”When ISIS tells us that they are Islamic, the American left says they are not. Though ISIS self-identifies as Islamic, the American left rejects that identification. When Bruce Jenner says he is | Read More »

    Barack Obama is an Enabler of Evil

    Obama on ISIS: “There will be an intensification of the strategy that we’ve put forward.”— Fox News (@FoxNews) November 16, 2015 He is not a damn fool. The press today is battering the President over being a damn fool. He is not. He is an enabler of evil. This is the man whose world view was shaped by an anti-American communist mentor. This is the | Read More »

    While Paris Was Being Bombed, Barack Obama Released Osama Bin Laden’s Bodyguard From GTMO

    My sister called me this morning wondering why I hadn’t written anything about it. I had not even heard about it. I did not see coverage on the news. But, it turns out that while Paris was being bombed President Obama released Osama Bin Laden’s former bodyguard from GTMO along with several other men. The men had all been cleared for release during the Bush | Read More »

    Wanted: Grownups

    On the day ISIS related terrorists spread out across Paris and killed more than one hundred people, Barack Obama claimed ISIS was “contained.” After the attacks, liberals actually tried to argue that the attacks in Paris showed how successful Barack Obama had been because ISIS was having to lash out to get attention. Yes, liberals actually argued this. Earlier this year, while President Obama still | Read More »

    We Must Rethink The Syrian Refugee Problem

    “[L]et me not now use Paris to justify what I believed about politics the day before Paris.”It is looking more and more likely that the men who perpetrated the attacks on Paris, at least some of them, came into the country as Syrian refugees. In fact, as more and more news reports are finally willing to admit, many of the refugees have been young, single | Read More »

    John Bel Edwards Skipped A Family Forum For THIS

    John Bel Edwards made it into the Louisiana gubernatorial runoff with Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) 84% and immediately began pounding the snot out of Vitter for the old prostitution scandal about which Vitter has apologized completely. Edwards could have really made hay about the issue at a social values forum held by Louisiana’s Family Forum last night. Except Edwards bailed on the | Read More »

    Mitt Romney Supporters Are a Cult

    This is crazy talk. According to other Republicans, some in the party establishment are so desperate to change the dynamic that they are talking anew about drafting Romney — despite his insistence that he will not run again. Friends have mapped out a strategy for a late entry to pick up delegates and vie for the nomination in a convention fight, according to the Republicans, | Read More »

    We Remember the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month

    ABC News Treats Carly Fiorina With Hostility While Giving Hillary Clinton a Pass

    Last week, Carly Fiorina had a townhall forum where a man called President Obama a “black muslim.” ABC News ran a news story on it with the headline “Carly Fiorina Doesn’t Correct Man Who Calls Obama a ‘Black Muslim’. The story also begins with the line “Carly Fiorina did not correct a New Hampshire man today who called President Obama a ‘black man.'” The news | Read More »

    Cruz, Rubio, and Fox Business For the Win

    Fox Business gave the debate all the other networks should have given, including the first Fox News debate. It was not flashy. But it was substantive. It was not just that the candidates had more time or that there were less candidates. The moderators did a good job of drawing out policy differences without intentionally setting up fights. They just happened naturally. Bill Shine, Roger | Read More »

    Jeb Bush Has Had a Debate Comeback

    Jeb Bush has had a good debate performance tonight. While I think his attempts at humor came off poorly, he really did a good job. He came across as serious, but likeable. He did not try to throw half-hearted punches. He held his own. He stood up to Trump, though Trump made him back down once. He was reaffirmed by Carly Fiorina on foreign policy. | Read More »

    I Literally Cheered @RealDonaldTrump in the Debate

    Did I mention John Kasich is an ass? In the Fox debate he tried to dismiss Donald Trump, a man who created a multi-billion dollar company, as a kid on immigration policy. Kasich was condescending and rude in a way Trump had not yet been to him. But Trump threw it back in Kasich’s face. Trump talked about Eisenhower and immigration, pointing out that everybody | Read More »

    Danger Signs for Jeb Bush in the South

    Usually, the primary calendar goes from Iowa to New Hampshire to South Carolina to Florida. Florida is where Mitt Romney shut down Newt Gingrich in 2012. Florida is where Rudy Giuliani’s campaign imploded in 2008. Florida has been a final firewall for campaigns. But things are different this year. Texas comes before Florida, but not just Texas. It will be an SEC Primary that has | Read More »

    Team Jeb Bush Prepares to Hand Ted Cruz the Republican Nomination

    “As revenge for their ‘boy’ becoming his own man, Mike Murphy intends to destroy Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94%.”Here is something you need to know to this morning — Jeb Bush’s Super PAC ads have been terrible. They have not helped Jeb Bush at all. In fact, more Republican primary voters say they would never vote for Jeb Bush than say the | Read More »
