    Anti-Muslim Speech and Consequences

    The threat by US Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, Bill Killian, to punish “anti-Muslim” sentiments expressed on social media are not the actions of a “rogue” US Attorney anymore than 90 “rogue” IRS employees targeted conservatives.

    Attention Anyone With Diary Privileges

    Not all RedState members have diary privileges. It is becoming obvious, however, that not everyone who has that privilege uses it wisely. This would not be a big deal did it not have a direct impact on other diarists. Ladies and gentlemen, this has to stop. Now.

    Tom Ridge: Unindicted Co-conspirator

    In Philadelphia were are being treated to the logical outcome of unprincipled pseudo-conservatism. An abortionist by the name of Kermit Gosnell is on trial for murder because some of the infants he was supposed to kill were inconveniently born alive.

    Only a few hours after the tragic shootings in Newton, Connecticut, Fat Jerry Nadler was on the Ed Schultz show encouraging Obama to “exploit” the tragedy.

    The Practical Reasons To Not Set Up Health Insurance Exchanges

    One of the keys to implementing Obamacare is the establishment of health insurance exchanges in each state.

    The Department of Illiteracy


    If the road to Hell is paved with good intentions then the federal government is the general contractor on the project.

    Selling Conservatism And Why Benefits Beat Features

    One of the first things anyone learns in sales is that the customer is interested in benefits, not features. Politics are no different.

    GOP Between A Cliff And A Cave

      With only four weeks remaining before the ominously named “fiscal cliff” the White House made its official offer to Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: Obama’s proposal, as outlined by Republicans, would purportedly trim the debt by about $4 trillion over the next decade, in part through spending cuts already in force and savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. | Read More »

    You Think Obama Stole the Election? Then Read This

    In the aftermath of Romney’s defeat a new conspiracy theory, or a close kin thereof, has emerged: Obama stole the election. This has joined 9-11 Trutherism and Birtherism (along with the Bilderbergers, Illuminati, Opus Dei, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion) as a subject lucid people don’t talk about in a non-ironic way.
