The 2016 Republican Field: They Don’t All Suck
On January 27, 2007, I wrote what remains one of the most read posts in RedState history. The title summed it up. “They All Suck”. In it, I noted that the field of Republican candidates then taking shape headed into the 2008 election were just terrible. Giuliani, McCain, Romney, Tom Tancredo, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) 83%, and Sam Brownback were a lightweight | Read More »

Republicans and the Chris Hughes/Sean Eldridge Love Fest
I’ve noticed a trend on the left and right in the past few years. People of limited accomplishment participate in fawning love affair press that claims the people are somehow the masters of the universe. James Kirchick does a great job in this schadenfreude-o-licious piece at the Daily Beast. Liberal writers have, for the last several years, fallen all over themselves to praise Chris Hughes | Read More »
Now Or Later: Why Not Wait to Fight Over Amnesty?
This is, perhaps, the simplest and most easily understood argument against acting now to stop the President. Come January, the House of Representatives and the Senate will both be held by the Republican Party. It will, therefore, improve their leverage against the President and his unconstitutional amnesty. So we should wait. Except . . . well . . . except there are some fundamental problems | Read More »
Another Democrat Falls. Republicans Still Won’t Listen.
The Republicans now have their largest majorities in Congress since World War II. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has been defeated in a runoff in Louisiana. Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards went down to defeat too. Republicans will have a solid majority in both houses of congress in January. They will have that majority because they ran opposed to Barack Obama. They | Read More »
Tom Robinson Would Disagree With Zerlina Maxwell
UPDATED: The Post has changed the headline to “we should generally believe”, but the URL remains as this: no-matter-what-jackie-said-we-should-automatically-believe-rape-claims/ — Mayella Ewell accused Tom Robinson of raping her. In what amounted to a show trial, Robinson was found guilty though he clearly had not raped Ewell. That’s the key part of the plot from To Kill a Mockingbird, which is also both one of my | Read More »
Sabrina Erdley, Rolling Stone, and the Media Put the Cause Before the Truth
The media completely buys the idea of misogynist culture. The media completely buys the idea that fraternities are filled with silver spooned rapists. The media complete believes there is a “rape culture” in America and by God the media will prove it. Thus Sabrina Erdley sought out the perfect victim and found that perfect victim at the University of Virginia. According to Erdley, writing in | Read More »
Because Justice Runs to Individuals, Kennesaw, Georgia Got It Wrong
The City of Kennesaw, Georgia has denied a gathering of muslims the right to build a mosque in a strip mall. The city claims it does not allow houses of worship in strip malls, but recently unanimously granted a Pentecostal group the right to do just that. Then the City of Kennesaw demanded that, should they grant the muslims the request, that the muslims must | Read More »
Top House Republican Declares He Wants Total Amnesty
House Republicans, coming up with every excuse under the sun to avoid stopping President Obama, are letting slip the real reason. Congressman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) 79%, chairman of the House Rules Committee, is telling Democratic lawmakers he wants total amnesty. The Daily Caller reports Sessions met with Democratic lawmakers telling them how expansive his vision of immigration is before [mc_name name=’Rep. | Read More »
Rape, Rudeness, and Deciding the News
Terry Bean is a donor to the Democratic Party. He has hung out with Barack Obama on Air Force Once. He founded the influential gay-rights organization Human Rights Campaign, which targets and harasses Christians. The organization, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center, labeled the conservative Family Research Council a “hate group.” Unsurprisingly, a gay rights activist showed up at the Family Research Council with | Read More »
The Republicans in Congress Hate the American People. Just Like the Democrats.
Republicans ran a campaign in 2014 against the high handed overreach of Barack Obama. Democrats ran a campaign against Republicans accusing them of hating women and shutting down the government. Republicans won. Then Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% promptly surrendered. They never, despite their campaign rhetoric, had any intention of stopping the President. | Read More »
Chris Hughes Insulted the President’s Daughters
For those of you outside the Circle of Jerks in New York and Washington, this may be a bit more than you can handle. The New Republic, which was founded in foam of the sea stirred up by Teddy Roosevelt belly-flopping in order to support the progressive cause and Joe Stalin (seriously), has been slaughtered by a dot-commer who couldn’t get his boy toy into | Read More »

John Boehner needs to stop playing with Barack Obama’s balls and get some of his own. Go here and join the movement. Send a set of blue balls to John Boehner as a visually distinct message that he needs to find his testicular fortitude and stop the President’s amnesty plan. My original post on this is here and the address to mail the balls to | Read More »
Shut Up About Obama’s Amnesty Plan Unless You Do This One Thing
You have given up your right to complain about Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. Just shut up. Stop complaining. You know why? Because you did not do the one thing that could stop it. You did not call your congressman despite me making it very easy for you to do so. All you had to do was click here. I’m in Washington, D.C. right now. Last | Read More »
Would You Please Click Here to Order John Boehner Some New Balls?
I guess Barack Obama took John Boehner’s balls because Boehner is playing with the President’s balls instead of his own. That’s sad. I mean, think about this. For the last three months, the GOP actively campaigned against Barack Obama’s planned amnesty action while the Democrats attacked the GOP for a government shut down. You could be forgiven for thinking the GOP just got its ass | Read More »
Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Says His Preferred Method of Stopping Obama is to Let John McCain Do It
Now this is just pathetic. Some of you turned Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 80% into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you. Bend over America. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 80% is | Read More »
