    Iran accuses Obama of lying about the nuclear weapons deal

    Iran accuses Obama of lying about the nuclear weapons deal

    It is a sure sign you’ve failed when your political opponents and the people you are negotiating with accuse you of lying. Yesterday, Obama lied to the American people in the boldest possible terms on what the nuclear negotiations deal meant. In simple terms, Iran gave up the ability to have a nuclear energy program and in return got permission from Obama to build a | Read More »

    Indiana turns religious freedom law into a law punishing religious freedom

    Indiana turns religious freedom law into a law punishing religious freedom

    This is Orwellian. When confronted by the rage of homosexual activists and their supporters… most of whom do not live in Indiana and none of whom would ever vote Republican… Mike Pence and the two imbeciles leading the Indiana legislature, Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne), and House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) [pictured above] did what all moderates do when criticized by people who | Read More »

    Obama lies about Iranian fatwa against nuclear weapons

    Obama lies about Iranian fatwa against nuclear weapons

    Yesterday, Barack Obama told one of the most egregious series of lies any American president has ever uttered to the American people. It would be fair to say it was unprecedented. The closest approximation would be a tie between Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook” and Bill Clinton’s “I did not have sex with that woman.” In neither of those cases, however, was the | Read More »

    The Sexual Revolution and the death of love

    The Sexual Revolution and the death of love

    The attack by homosexual activists and their supporters on the ability of religious people (primarily Christian because they are afraid members of some other religions might blow them up if pressed) to practice their faith as anything but a cultural artifact on Sundays and a few holidays has reached full-throated roar over laws passed in Indiana and Arkansas. Tim Carney made this observation in the | Read More »

    The demise of American Christianity

    The demise of American Christianity

    Today is Holy Thursday. If you are Catholic this is the first day of the Easter or Paschal Tiduum. In Christian theology, tonight is the memorial of the Last Supper. Catholic Churches and some Protestant denominations will do the symbolic “washing of feet,” which is how Christ reminds us that when you are a leader you are a servant not a master (this lesson is | Read More »

    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

    @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

    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 »
