    Babies for sale

    The road to hell, as they say is paved with good intentions. And no small number of those good intentions occur when science and technology are able to inject themselves into the human life cycle. Abortion and euthanasia already exist. Euthanasia is being pushed not only to reduce medical costs but to provide a supply of organs for transplants. 1978 marked a watershed, of sorts, | Read More »

    @AsaHutchinson assumes fetal position

    I posted earlier today about the Arkansas legislature voting overwhelmingly for a state version of the RFRA, a law that would permit people of faith to live their faith publicly. Governor Asa Hutchinson (@AsaHutchinson) has said he won’t sign the current bill. Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Wednesday he would not sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed by the Republican legislature Tuesday as it’s | Read More »

    Border Patrol ignores illegals and begins harassing citizens

    Border Patrol ignores illegals and begins harassing citizens

    I’ll used this opening graf from the Houston Chronicle because it says it all: No drugs or would-be immigrants were hidden in the sedan that rolled up to a Border Patrol checkpoint on a Southern California highway last week, but within 90 seconds the driver was handcuffed. His 4-year-old boy was crying. And a video camera mounted on the car’s dashboard captured the moment. The | Read More »

    Arkansas passes a state RFRA

    Arkansas passes a state RFRA

    Mike Pence is a happy man this morning. He can stop backing and filling in the hopes of placating the militant homosexual lobby and their pathetic fanbois in the media and let Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson take some heat. Arkansas passed a religious freedom bill on Tuesday that is similar to an Indiana law that has faced national backlash for legalizing discrimination against lesbian, gay, | Read More »

    Iran Nuclear Talks: Farce followed by tragedy

    Iran Nuclear Talks: Farce followed by tragedy

    Between 1922 and 1933, there was an amazing degree of cooperation between Germany, which was seeking to rearm in violation of the Versailles Treaty, and the Soviet Union, which was trying to modernize its military in between bouts of purging anyone who could read or write from the Red Army. In 1924, the Luftwaffe began training at Lipetsk. Chemical warfare troops were trained in the Volga | Read More »

    Mike Pence prepares to cave

    Mike Pence prepares to cave

    Stick a fork in Mike Pence’s hopes of running for president. He’s done. Having done the right thing by protecting the religious freedom of the people of Indiana, he’s now negotiating a surrender.  What is more troubling is that he seems to be trying to have it both ways. This morning he said: Gov. Mike Pence appeared on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning and said | Read More »

    Obama’s Iran Monkey Trap

    Obama's Iran Monkey Trap

    The idea of a monkey trap is spectacularly elegant. A bit of food or a shiny object is placed inside a sturdy object (often a coconut is mentioned but the image comes from a termite hill being used for the purpose). There is a hole that is just big enough for the monkey’s hand to pass through. However, once the monkey grasps the object its | Read More »

    Martin O’Malley hints he may run for president

    Martin O'Malley hints he may run for president

    I am a minority of one among the contributors at RedState. I don’t believe Hillary Clinton CAN win the presidency for the simple reason that her only compelling cases for election are “I slept with Bill Clinton” and “You owe me.” She doesn’t have a natural constituency inside the Democrat party that is enthusiastic about voting for her, other than elderly far-left harpies. And I | Read More »

    Come for the fluffy robe and pedicure, stay for the abortion

    Come for the fluffy robe and pedicure, stay for the abortion

    The problem facing the abortion industry is not that they are losing political and legal fights… they have suffered some setbacks but abortion was raised to the status of a Constitutional right by the daft Harry Blackmun… they are losing the battle for the minds of then next generations. 74% of the millenial generation believes abortion is always or mostly immoral. To combat the stigma associated | Read More »

    Apple’s Tim Cook is dangerous and a flaming hypocrite

    Apple's Tim Cook is dangerous and a flaming hypocrite

    Ordinarily I wouldn’t concern myself with what some billionaire far-left oligarch thinks. Usually, they don’t think about much beyond making money and having millions of people they neither know or respect suck up to them. Apple’s Steve Jobs made a career of this type of self-important asshattery. His successor, Tim Cook is no different. Weighing in on the Indiana RFRA law signed by Governor Mike | Read More »

    GOP Failure Theater gave $1.5 billion to abortion industry

    GOP Failure Theater gave $1.5 billion to abortion industry

    At a time when the human trafficking bill is locked up in the Senate over Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 10%‘s refusal to prevent federal funds from being used to provide abortions, the GAO has released a study showing Reid’s resistance as just a part of the rapacious, cash-(and baby)-vacuuming abortion industry. U.S. federal and state taxpayers sent nearly $1.5 billion to Planned | Read More »

    Expanded abortion law defeated in New York

    Expanded abortion law defeated in New York

    For two years New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been pushing an Orwellian named ” Women’s Equality Act.” Most of the ten items in the bill were feel good things which already exist but for the sake of winning the War on Women, they were reiterated to make the radical feminists feel good about themselves. The bill has been held up in the New York | Read More »

    Cut a baby from a woman; kill it; it isn’t murder in Colorado

    Cut a baby from a woman; kill it; it isn't murder in Colorado

    When people defend abortion, this is one of the consequences. I’m not sure the Planned Parenthood, pro-infanticide crowd sees this as a feature or a bug: A former nurse’s aide will not face murder charges for allegedly cutting and removing an unborn baby from the mother’s womb, Boulder County, Colorado, prosecutor Stanley Garnett said Thursday. The mother, Michelle Wilkins, answered a Craigslist ad for baby | Read More »

    Situation Normal: Hillary Clinton obstructs justice and operates outside the law

    Nothing says “I have nothing to hide” like erasing your private web server after your previous employer asks you to produce what is on it. Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday. “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton | Read More »

    Obama supporting ethnic cleansing in Iraq

    As the United States, under Barack Obama, has begun to act as a proxy for Iran in allowing the alleged fight against ISIS serve as a cover for spreading Iranian influence it has become obvious that we are supporting Iranian-backed militias who are no better, in any respect, than the people they are supposed to be fighting. Instead of fighting ISIS, these militias are actively | Read More »
