RedState's Dear Leader.


    A Profoundly Decent Man and Family

    Governor and Mrs. Perry are friends of mine. We all get to see Rick Perry as a politician, candidate for President, and longest serving Governor of Texas. I’ve gotten to see Rick and Anita Perry as themselves — covered in dust bunnies (“ghost turds” as the Governor called them) moving out of the Governor’s Mansion. We have traded prayer lists of people to pray for. | Read More »

    Rushing to Judgment

    I have no idea what happened to Freddie Gray. I know he was no angel. He had been in and out of trouble with the law. There were more than a dozen arrests for drugs, burglary, escape, etc. But it is hard for me to believe what happened to him was deserved. He may have been no angel, but we are all sinners. If the | Read More »

    The End Game Becomes More Clear

    Though you don’t need a rainbow sticker on the back of your car to tell the world you are black, the gay rights movement is intent on equating the struggle for black civil rights with their own quest to redefine marriage. And it was abundantly obvious yesterday that the Supreme Court recognizes this would be a redefinition of the institution. What also became obvious was | Read More »

    Events Change Things

    More and more news flows out on a near daily basis about the corruption of Hillary Clinton. I have said before and will repeat that one can understand everything about Bill and Hillary Clinton by understanding they have financial anorexia. Bill and Hillary Clinton look in the mirror and still see poor people. So Bill Clinton got money under the table from the Russians while | Read More »

    100 Days

    10 years ago I began the transition from law to politics and full time stewardship of this site. It was, in fact, two weeks before the birth of my first child ten years ago in August that I told my wife I was going to quit being a lawyer to be a full time blogger. It went over as well as you might imagine. Ten | Read More »

    The Fact of the Matter That is Baltimore

    The Fact of the Matter That is Baltimore

    As I write this, the Governor of Maryland has called out the National Guard, parts of Baltimore are on fire, the rubble grows, and violence is sweeping the city. I think there are partisan points to make, but I prefer not to make them here. I think there are political points to make, but I prefer in this not to make them. My heart just | Read More »


    If Only President Obama Weren’t Black

    “If only President Obama weren’t black, maybe he would realize that people don’t dislike him because he is black, they dislike him because he is a self-absorbed ass.”Over the weekend, most of the worst people in the world gathered together in Washington, D.C. as a circle of jerks to sing each other’s praises. Sadly, there was no Samson to tear down the columns and collapse | Read More »

    Christian Persecution in America: Will You Help The Christians?

    Aaron and Melissa Klein have five children and had a bakery. The bakery is all but gone now because the Klein family declined to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding. Hell hath no fury like two angry lesbians and Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman claimed “emotional, mental, and physical suffering” because the Kleins put their faith ahead of their business. A judge is now | Read More »

    The Totalitarianism of the Gay Rights Movement

    The Totalitarianism of the Gay Rights Movement

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% supports real marriage. He is opposed by gay rights activists who are more and more showing themselves to be little despots. Cruz spoke at the home of Ian Reisner who is both gay and supports homosexual marriage. The gaystapo has decreed that Mr. Reisner’s businesses must be boycotted. He dared to associate with a conservative. Consequently, Mr. | Read More »

    The Culture War Goes to Church

    “[T]he new pastor told the congregation to ‘f*ck off’.”Still Waters United Methodist Church is a postcard church. It sits on a hill overlooking North Druid Hills Road in Atlanta, Georgia. Its grass is postcard green. Its trees, casting shadows on the grass, are postcard sized tall. It has a high, white steeple. The sound of children laughing filters down the hill from the fenced in | Read More »

    Consciously Sidelining Ourselves

    Consciously Sidelining Ourselves

    Though Walmart remains fixed in the American conscience as Sam Walton’s business, it is less and less that. Walton was folksy and relatable to the Americans who shopped at Walmart. Everyone could imagine Sam Walton shopping there too. But over the years, Walmart’s management has passed out of the direct hands of Walton’s family. A few of the Walton clan remain on the Walmart Board | Read More »

    National Insanity

    Twice did Bruce Jenner win gold medals for the decathlon. In 1975 at the Pan Am Games in Mexico City, then again in the 1976 Montreal Olympics, Jenner bested the world and broke some world records in the process. After the Olympics, Jenner found himself on the Wheaties box. He appeared in film and television. He took up car racing. His name and image made | Read More »

    Entitled Underachieving Middle Son of the Romney Clan Wants Someone to Challenge Mike Lee

    Josh Romney is the unaccomplished and underachieving middle child of Mitt Romney. He is consequently starved for attention and, as a result, decided to sit down with KSL television in Utah to declare that he is politically ambitious because it is in his blood, but he has no desire to challenge Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) 100%. But, the lesser Romney middle child | Read More »

    Mike Flynn For Congress

    Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) 38%‘s Peoria, IL based congressional district is vacant after his resignation. Darin LaHood, who is the son of President Obama’s former transportation secretary, is seeking Schock’s seat as a Republican. He’s received money already from the left-wing Republican Main Street Parternship. There is currently no alternative to LaHood, but I believe that before the sun sets today we | Read More »

    A Corrupted Two Kingdoms For Coward Pastors

    When the Protestant Reformation occurred, (I’m simplifying here) Luther needed an explanation for why the Pope need not wield the power of the sword. He focused on the idea of the two kingdoms — there is God’s kingdom in Heaven over which here on the earth the church presides and there is God’s kingdom on earth over which civil authorities preside. Calvin picked up the | Read More »
