RedState's Dear Leader.


    Barack Obama Thinks Islam Is Primitive

    Barack Obama Thinks Islam Is Primitive

    Reflecting on what Barack Obama said yesterday, I think people are missing something I encounter a lot among so called intellectuals. Liberal intellectuals say things like this: And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, | Read More »

    Barack Obama Is Not a Christian in Any Meaningful Way

    Barack Obama is not, in any meaningful way, a Christian and I am not sure he needs to continue the charade. With no more elections for him, he might as well come out as the atheist/agnostic that he is.1 He took his first step in doing so yesterday in a speech reeking with contempt for faith in general and Christianity in particular. Saying that violent | Read More »

    Thomas Jefferson for President!

    My friend Russell Moore has penned an op-ed at the Wall Street Journal today. I implore you to make it your must read of the day. Here is a sample: If religious liberty doesn’t apply to small or unpopular minorities, then it isn’t liberty at all but becomes another government handout to a special-interest group. We want a candidate who will argue consistently for soul | Read More »

    Brian Williams’s Fluffers

    Brian Williams's Fluffers

    We know Brian Williams will not lose his job for repeatedly telling a lie. We know because he works for Comcast, a company which allows no one out of contracts under any circumstance even when you call and beg them to cancel your account. Brian Williams has job security. We also know something else now. In the age old debate between spits or swallows, the | Read More »

    What Issues Should Republicans Discuss?

    What issues are falling through the cracks? What issues need to be discussed more? Those were questions raised by RedState readers and we asked the GOP Presidential candidates what they thought. Here is what they said.

    Roger Ailes Confronts the Evil While the Also Rans Cower in Fear

    It is times like this that I am very proud of Fox News, where I am a political contributor. The national news media, right now collectively apologizing for Brian Williams, is collectively attacking Roger Ailes and Fox News for showing the ISIS video of the gruesome burning of the Jordanian pilot. It is not a coincidence that the very same networks attacking Roger Ailes and | Read More »

    What About the Military

    While in Iowa for Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 77%‘s Freedom Summit, RedState asked the 2016 Presidential candidates about the U.S. military. In particular, we asked them what the future military should look like and also how the military will need to balance cyber-war, Islamic extremists, and traditional military threats. Here’s what they had to say.

    Really? Vaccines?

    Really?  Vaccines?

    With growing tensions in the Middle East, terrorism, American reassessments of overseas adventures, economic issues at home, and so much more, the media has decided this week’s most pressing issue is vaccinations. In 2008, Barack Obama declared the science of vaccinations inconclusive. On Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Ernst said “I’m not going stand up here and dispense medical advice,” Earnest said, according to | Read More »

    Ending Groundhog Republicanism

    Ending Groundhog Republicanism

    Humanity is tormented once again by an age-old issue—is man to live in dignity and freedom under God or be enslaved—are men in government to serve, or are they to master, their fellow men? It befalls us now to resolve this issue anew—perhaps this time for centuries to come. Nor can we evade the issue here at home. Even in this Constitutional Republic, for two | Read More »

    Adam Tucker of Ogilvy & Mather Tries to Justify a Crappy Nationwide Ad

    Like peeing in the salsa, Nationwide decided to ruin the Super Bowl party with a monumentally depressing ad about a child’s death. It was only one of a series of less than memorable, depressing ads that did not really fit with the Super Bowl theme. In fact, the Super Bowl has become a great time when Americans, so at each others throats for everything these | Read More »

    Behind the Scenes in Mordor

    I do not know who Fredrik deBoer is, but this piece is fascinating. He expands upon Jon Chait’s lament over political correctness. I do have to say the funniest piece in response to Chait was some idiot at Vox who denied political correctness even exists. The whole thing is a snapshot into Mordor. Take this for example: I have seen, with my own two eyes, | Read More »


    Hostility to Tradition

    In the nineties, the Clinton Administration formed a bipartisan coalition to pass the federal “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” or “RFRA.” Nineteen states followed suit. The legislation came in response to a Supreme Court decision that had seen an American Indian suffer legally for having used a drug during a well established American Indian religious ceremony. RFRA’s framework was common sense. “Under RFRA the government may | Read More »

    The Ninnies of America

    I would note that the blizzard of New England quieted for a time the criticisms of “American Sniper,” the movie about Chris Kyle. It didn’t affect the box office take, but all the ninnies who want to whine about the movie were shut in and shut up. And they are ninnies. War is hell. It is a gruesome affair. And there are bad guys and | Read More »

    The Common Core and the 2016 Republican Candidates

    We asked the Republicans who met at the Iowa Freedom Summit what they thought about Common Core. Let’s just say the conservatives running are not exactly fans of Common Core. Hear them in their own words:

    Erin May is a Hero Fighting Common Core. More Mothers Will Hopefully Follow.

    Erin May is the mother of two boys in the Lafayette Parish School System. She may also be on the verge of launching a revolution to take education back from the bureaucrats. Mrs. May’s sons are required this year to take the PARCC exam in Louisiana. PARCC is the Common Core exam in Louisiana. The exam will not be used to help her children improve | Read More »
