    Better the Christian Hating Lesbian Than the Black Man

    Stuff like this is probably why Alvin Greene is the Democrats’ Senate candidate in South Carolina.Greene, a man with no home, no money, and no job, beat the Democrats’ hand picked candidate for the right to lose to Jim DeMint in South Carolina. The Democrats are pounding their fists on the table claiming it was a dirty trick.This is an intentional distraction. Why is it | Read More »

    Joe Miller for US Senate

    At midnight last night my phone rang. It was Joe Miller calling from Alaska. It’s the first we’ve spoken on the phone, though we’ve traded emails and I’ve certainly been intrigued by his candidacy.Sarah Palin has gotten on board. The Tea Party Express has gotten on board. Conservatives from around the country are rallying to him against Lisa Murkowski — one of Mitch McConnell’s loyal | Read More »

    An NRA Board Member Takes on the NRA

    Cleta Mitchell is a member of the NRA’s board and the kind soul who reviewed my CNN contract for me. She’s a terrific champion of liberty and is in the Washington Post this morning with some harsh words for the NRA. [T]he NRA has, sadly, affirmed the notion held by congressional Democrats (and some Republicans), liberal activists, the media establishment and, at least for now, | Read More »

    We Should Not Be Surprised By Barack Obama’s Speech

    “Mr. President, windmills will not clean up this mess and windmills will not fuel my car and get me to work. It is that simple.” While conservatives have had a marvelous time laughing at Barry O the Butt Kicker who can’t plug the darn hole, none of us should expect anything else from him.Whether conservatives, independents, and liberals want to admit it or not, the | Read More »

    The National Rifle Association’s Excuse Holds No Water

    The National Rifle Association and its supporters are pushing back against conservatives who have accused the NRA of selling out to the left. The NRA worked with Democrats to carve out an exception from a new anti-free speech piece of legislation.As the Wall Street Journal notes, “Under the NRA carve-out in the House bill, the new rules won’t apply to any organizations that have been | Read More »

    The Christianity Scam

    The Christ died. On the third day he rose again from the dead. There will be a last day and he will return to judge the living and the dead.As the Bible says, “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Cor. 9:22).Christ told | Read More »

    An Inconvenient Truth: Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater Together

    Months ago I told you Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater were cutting a deal. I got so much blowback from so many people I actually had to remove the post from the front page of RedState. I stood by the story, but the brouhaha that resulted necessitated the post going into draft mode so we could get on with the day. Well, I was and | Read More »

    The Wall Street Journal Takes the NRA to Task For Its Sell Out to the Left

    The Wall Street Journal has a fantastic editorial about just how awful the NRA’s carveout deal with the Democrats is. The NRA may swing a big lobbying stick by virtue of the breadth and voting power of its members, but it draws its legitimacy from the Constitution and it has drawn support on gun rights from those who care about the entire Bill of Rights. | Read More »

    Republican Senators Declare Themselves Gutless Wonders

    The Politico has a story about Republican Senators running away from Sharron Angle. It includes this gem of gutless wonderdom: Several Senate Republicans told POLITICO that they don’t favor privatizing Social Security, as Angle has supported. Small government conservatives said it doesn’t make sense to eliminate the Energy and Education departments – as she’s called for in the past. And some recoiled at the thought | Read More »

    Add Federal Judge Stephen Robinson to the “Must Impeach” List

    When Republicans take back Congress, they need to take seriously the issue of federal judges being impeached. Just the other week, a federal judge in Washington ordered the government to act in a way the Supreme Court had already said could not be ordered.Now, a federal judge in New York has thrown out the American standard of one man – one vote. Federal judge Stephen | Read More »

    Pamela Gorman Drives the Left Crazy

    I don’t know what it is about attractive, powerful, conservative women, but they drive the left absolutely crazy.That’s just another reason to support Pamela Gorman. In the Arizona State Senate, Pamela was willing to be the lone vote against matters and was willing to drop amendments on popular legislation to kill it because, while popular among politicians, the legislation would be detrimental to freedom.The left | Read More »

    Barack Obama Embraces His Inner Jimmy Carter

    “Barack Obama, like Jimmy Carter before him, has proven himself overwhelmed by the job, not up to the task, and looking for answers in all the wrong places. Let’s hope the nation can survive him.” Perhaps it is because his chief speechwriter has spent the crisis playing beer pong in Georgetown bars. Perhaps it is because while embracing peak oil, the oil spill never piqued | Read More »

    To Democrats, Words Are More Dangerous Than Physical Violence

    The Democrats are crying foul over a college student videotaping Congressman Etheridge’s assault.You see, it was a right-wing ambush and Bob Etheridge was justified in assaulting the college student. Caught on tape, Etheridge pulled the student’s hand toward him and the student asked to be released. Etheridge refused. This all happened after the student asked Etheridge if the Congressman supported the Obama agenda.Contrast this to | Read More »
