The Establishment Hates Ted Cruz, You and Me
The most difficult thing to explain to your average Republican voter is how people like David Dewhurst, Charlie Crist and all the establishment, ladder-climbing, butt-kissing, near permanent political staff flacks who grow up to be lobbyists they put around them literally hate you, me, and conservative fighters like Ted Cruz. And newsflash — it’s not just Washington, but in state capitols throughout America, just like | Read More »
A Letter From Neal Boortz to ‘Dear Ruler’ Obama
If you haven’t read this yet, you should. Dear Ruler: First, let me say how thrilled I am that you went off-teleprompter last week. This “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen” thing was just wonderful. Now I know how Chris Matthews felt. Oh .. I know. Your handlers weren’t all that thrilled with your amazing screw-up, and, | Read More »
Dear Mitt Romney: Attack!
Media Matters’ Spin Shows Just How Vulerable Barack Obama Is
Just how badly did Barack Obama hurt himself in Roanoke, Virginia on Friday? Well, consider that his campaign has desperately been trying to walk back his speech. Now even Media Matters is desperately trying to spin the President out of context to fix what he said. In Roanoke, the President said, There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because | Read More »
Wetting the Bed Over Mitt Romney
“It’s like the GOP consultant class learned all the wrong lessons from Bob Shrum.” Of all the people to not be beating up Mitt Romney for his present not quite stellar campaign, I find myself in that position. I’m genuinely not that worried. First of all, remember that most of his primary money is gone so he can’t spend on a fancy ad campaign right | Read More »
Senator Ron Johnson Will Be At the RedState Gathering. Will You?
In 2010, one of the few candidates the GOP establishment and conservative activists agreed on was a businessman in Wisconsin named Ron Johnson. “Crazy!!!” people said. “It’s Wisconsin. Russ Feingold!!!! Ron Johnson can’t win.” Then he got the nomination. “It’s crazy!!! He bores people with charts. He scares the old people. He actually says we need to cut spending. It’s Wisconsin!!!!” Call Ron Johnson the | Read More »

Ted Cruz Outraises David Dewhurst. Dewhurst Reponds By Accusing Cruz of Supporting Pedophiles.
“It’s akin to saying David Dewhurst is a kid toucher because kissed a baby on the campaign trail. ” I have always had a lot of respect for the guys who are running David Dewhurst’s campaign, but I’m starting to see now why Rick Perry had no chance of getting elected President. The same team running Dewhurst’s campaign ran Perry’s Presidential campaign and has stooped | Read More »

Eight Years of RedState
July 11, 2004, was actually the first live day of RedState with the actual site kicking off July 12th with user content. We went live on Scoop without the logo. Within a few months, we had the logo as we wanted and by 2005 had RedHot and ConfirmThem up and going. By mid-2006, Clayton switched us over to Drupal with a new design and we | Read More »
Rick Scott Wins
Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have cried “uncle”. He is throwing in the towel on a legal challenge against Governor Rick Scott (R-FL). Governor Scott’s team down in Florida discovered a large number of people on the voter rolls who were not eligible to vote in Florida. They then discovered that more than a thousand of those people had actually voted in Florida elections. The | Read More »
Does the President Think The Government Got Him Where He Is Today?
It is a lie premised on Marxism. It really is. It is not hyperbole to say it. Prior to Marx, people did not clearly think of economics as class divided and did not think of the collective overriding the individual. Certainly the thinking was there sociologically, but not crystalized in economics. As Daniel Henninger noted in the Wall Street Journal recently, “There is no theory | Read More »
Happy Birthday RedState. Will You Join Gov. Rick Scott and Me in Florida?
Josh Trevino posted this on January 24, 2004, at his blog Tacitus. Seven months later RedState.com came online. We’ve come along way since 2004. In our fifth year, we started the RedState Gathering. I put up a post without even telling my bosses at Eagle Publishing what I was up to. I just knew some of us wanted to get together in person after five | Read More »

Meet Bainers, the New Birthers
First, let’s dispense with the bull shiitake mushrooms. Condi Rice is not the veep pick. She served President Bush for 8 years, has never been elected, and is pro-abortion. It’s not happening. Likewise, much of the fawning the left does over Rice has more to do with her carefully portrayed image as a spoiller to Rumsfeld and Cheney than to her actual, though admittedly impressive, | Read More »
