    Polygamy is here.

    Polygamy is here.

    Now that a small group of people have succeeded in trashing several millenia of human culture for the sake of satisfying their libidos and egos, a curious civil war has broken out. It it between those who actually believe in “marriage equality” (and to grasp this concept you really have to buy into the old time progressive mantra of “all cultures are equal”), that is, | Read More »

    Chris Christie challenges George Pataki as the WTF?? candidate

    As anticipated, today New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced he was a  candidate for president of the United States.Via The Daily Caller: With New Jersey’s Bon Jovi blaring over the speakers, Chris Christie on Tuesday became the 14th Republican to join the race for the White House, vowing to fix the dysfunction of Washington D.C. “If Washington and Jefferson and Adams had believed compromise is | Read More »

    Scott Walker: the new Thad Cochran

    Scott Walker just dropped off my list of acceptable candidates. I like a lot about Governor Walker but people are policy. And his decision to hire Brad Dayspring, an unprincipled political operative who combines viciousness and incompetence in equal measures tells us a lot. Congrats to @BDayspring on joining Team Walker! Huge get– one of the best communications strategists in the game. $$ — Alyssa | Read More »

    June 28, 1778. Battle of Monmouth

    June 28, 1778. Battle of Monmouth

    Every war produces a few battles which serve as axioms for that conflict. In my view, the American Revolution produced two battles which really let you understand the war. The first of these is the rapid fire combination of First Trenton, Second Trenton, and Princeton between December 26, 1776 and January 3, 1777. Here you see the first glimmer of Washington as a strategist in | Read More »

    Ensuring #LoveWins

    Ensuring #LoveWins

    After Friday’s grotesque Supreme Court ruling that grants legal status to homosexual marriages based on the opinion of five people that such a bizarre right is found in the Constitution, I think it is time for Conservatives to get with the program. Many of our betters — this would be the 300 or so “Conservatives” who signed an amicus brief extolling the rightousness of trashing | Read More »

    CNN mistakes dildo flag for ISIS flag

    Via New York Magazine: Lucy Pawle, a CNN International editor who was passing the parade on her way home, was shocked to see one of the revelers, “this man, quite distinctive from the rest of the crowd,” waving “a very bad mimicry” of the black and white ISIS flag. She pointed out that while it was “clearly not Arabic,” and indeed looked like it could | Read More »

    Obergefell and the roadmap to drive Christianity from the public square

    Obergefell and the roadmap to drive Christianity from the public square

    The Supreme Court decision Friday making homosexual marriage not only legal but giving it a status superior to heterosexual marriage* was ominous (never mind that the lead defendant’s name sounded like a rank in the Wehrmacht). In his majority opinion, one which cavalierly overthrew well over 6,000 years of human history in the service of Kennedy’s vigorously, if vicariously, twitching nether regions, Kennedy laid out a | Read More »

    The New Plan to Defeat ISIS

    The New Plan to Defeat ISIS

    I suppose it had to happen. Legalizing and making mandatory the celebration of homosexual marriage has been touted as the cure for everything from a sagging economy to boils on the ass. Many on our own side are happy because now we can get on with the real issues. I’m still not sure what those issues are or why it was necessary to destroy Western | Read More »

    Open Thread: Supreme Court discovers right to homosexual marriage in Greyhound station men’s room

    Civilization was nice. It had a nice 5-6000 year run. Kind of neat to be alive to see it end.

    Failure Theater: Foreign Policy guru edition

    We have covered Failure Theater in a fairly comprehensive way here at RedState. For latecomers, this is the genesis: Sometimes you find terms that are so perfect that you just can’t let them pass. A good friend acquainted me with the idea of Cargo Cult Economics. Ace at Ace of Spades introduced me to a new one in the aftermath of the House and Senate | Read More »

    June 25, 1876. Little Bighorn

    Perhaps no battle in American history has been as thoroughly dissected and is still subject to as much controversy as the Battle of Little Bighorn. This was not a large battle. Custer’s command consisted of twelve understrength cavalry troops totaling 647 officers and men. It wasn’t even the largest defeat the US Army suffered at the hands of American Indians. The Seventh Cavalry lost 268 | Read More »

    Mark Meadows reinstated as subcommittee chairman

    In a day that has seen the Constitution shredded by Chief Justice John Roberts and his band of merry iconoclasts there is some small amount of good news. A couple of days ago, Erick reported on how a couple of Speaker Boehner’s lickspittles, Elise Stefanik and Mimi Walters, were trying to eject conservative Ken Buck from the ceremonial position as president of the freshman class. This was a triumph | Read More »

    Sign this petition! Now!

    Robert C. Byrd, Democrat icon, Democrat Senate president pro tem, and Ku Klux Klan recruiter, has his name affixed to hundreds if not thousands of things in the state of West Virginia. Byrd worked under the belief that he could buy immortality with your money. This petition calls on the West Virginia governor to remove Byrd’s name from every public feature in the state.

    The obligatory “White Americans are terrorists” fundraising scam

    The obligatory "White Americans are terrorists" fundraising scam

    In the aftermath of Brian Williams’s demotion from NBC News to MSNBC, presumably NBC management felt that a fabulist would improve the quality of a network staffed by idiots, liars, and rascist, one would have thought that some interest would be shown in ensuring that the stories they run are actually grounded in fact. But one would be wrong. For instance: White Americans Are Biggest | Read More »

    POLITICO's Michael Crowley tries to convince us Obama is one tough hombre

    There is virtually no one left on the planet that believes the Iran nuclear deal is anything other than a huge fraud designed to allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. The White House has basically stopped denying the substance of the deal. The AP is running a story on the secret annex to the agreement that requires the P5+1 to provide Iran with nuclear | Read More »
