The 2016 REDSTATE Presidential Strawpoll popup thingy
Have you noticed a straw poll pop up sometimes when you jump into Redstate? A straw poll which shows you pictures of every possible Republican candidate who may (or may not) have dreams of running for president in 2016? The last person is only in silhouette with the suspicious name of Write-In. I ask because, yes silly me, actually took the time to give my secret email | Read More »
The Jewish “Hybrid Race of Shape Shifters” to Blame for Bombing Theory
Over at the Daily Beast is an article entitled “Paris’s Muslim Suburbs Blame Jews for Charlie”. Nice quick article where the author has interviewed several Muslims and gotten some interesting feedback on their thoughts as to why the bombing occurred. Some explanations are what you would expect. The classic “well, he started it” routine whereby if you hadn’t done this, we wouldn’t have done that. But at least a couple | Read More »
Where ColdWarrior and Sen. John McCain Go Toe to Toe
Those who drop by RedState frequently are familiar with the name ColdWarrior. He is one who will take every available opportunity to, dare I say, harp on the virtues of being a Precinct Committeeman. The influence the position wields within a state’s party and how, for some reason, many of these slots remain empty despite their importance to our cause. ColdWarrior has encouraged, nudged, and has gotten in the face of those | Read More »
The Establishment Mantra : The Enemy (Democrat) of My Enemy (Conservative) is My Friend
Nobody can argue the fact the CRomnibus which passed the Republican led House 219-206 would not have been possible without the aid of Dem-friends and an equally chummy Dem-President. When bits of the funding bill started leaking out it was clear there would be defections from conservatives, enough to stop the bill in its tracks. At that point, Conservatives were solidified as the enemy as far as establishment was concerned. It wasn’t | Read More »
Jonathan Gruber… “I Behaved Badly.”
I’m not going into a line by line account of everything that Jonathan Gruber has written out as his official testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform. At the bottom is a link and you can read it for yourself. Or use Hotair’s link if you prefer. But I do want to make a couple things clear. When you pull it up in pdf | Read More »
And The Election Night Awards Go To…..
That election was FUN! But now to the important business of handing out awards, because so many people could not have won if it weren’t for the efforts of some of the * not winners*. * The first award goes to Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis. With her one note campaign on abortion flopping badly, she upped her game to two notes and attacked her opponent on his disability. Repeatedly | Read More »
Prez Holds Special Dinner for Indian PM – Who is Fasting
While some people surf the sites I just gently float along, occasionally bumping into the flotsam and jetsam that makes it’s way onto the net. I landed at the blog section of The Hill where Justin Sink informs us that President Obama held a dinner in honor of new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And what a feast it was, featuring “…compressed avocado with goat cheese | Read More »
Incest is the New Gay. Embrace it!
Cutting to the chase. From The Telegraph: Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the German Ethics Council said in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.” Essentially the German Ethics Council wants to get rid of the laws which ban incest | Read More »
There’s a Movement (again) to Dismantle ATF.
The backstory here is Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced a bill today which, in effect, gets rid of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms). Woohoo, right? Its not the first time this issue has been thrown around and if it doesn’t make it then it probably won’t be the last. Even Reagan wanted to hand over ATF duties to the Secret Service. So, is it a good, bad or | Read More »
Only Gaywiches Can be Used to Raise Funds on Campus
You remember the Chick-fil-A dustup from a couple years ago, where the CEO of the company publicly stated he was against same sex marriage? Notice they don’t refuse service to gays or anything which might get them in trouble ala Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who got in trouble for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. No, it was merely the CEO making his stand | Read More »
