Maliciousness. Not Incompetence.

For the longest time I have chosen to chalk our President’s stumbles, bumbles, and disasters up to incompetence. He is in over his head. He is inexperienced. He is...

The Korean Air Flight vs. The Malaysian Air Flight

President Obama spoke for 38 or so seconds yesterday after learning that a Malaysian Air flight had been shot down over Ukraine. In the process, he said in those 38 seconds that a plane falling from the sky “may be” a tragedy. Conservatives were quick to point out Ronald Reagan’s response to the Korean Air 007 flight in 1983. The shoot down was September 1, | Read More »

Ted Cruz is Leading

“Today … Ted Cruz intends to force his Republican colleagues to put up or shut on on the border issue.” It seems all the Senate Republicans are willing to turn a blind eye to the scandal and corruption obviously at play in the Mississippi Senate race to protect their buddy Thad Cochran who, apparently, can no longer find his way to the clubby Senate lunches | Read More »

Senator Cornyn Needs to K.I.S.S. This Idea Goodbye

I appreciate Senator John Cornyn working on a bipartisan solution to stem the border crisis, but I do not understand why people in Washington can’t remember to K.I.S.S. their policy proposals — Keep It Simple Stupid. We cannot just secure our border, we must have a comprehensive plan. We cannot work on our healthcare, we must have comprehensive socialism. Washington, not “we” to be fair, | Read More »

CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives

I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what | Read More »

Republican Mike Collins’ Campaign Staff Endorse Democrats Hijacking a Republican Primary

Mike Collins is the son of former Congressman Mac Collins and is trying very hard to grab his dad’s old congressional district. He’s even willing to use Democrats to do it. In the last two weeks, as I’ve previously reported, Democrats have begun receiving absentee ballot applications in the mail encouraging them to vote for Mike Collins. There has been a question about who is | Read More »

Gary Palmer is the Conservative to Support in Alabama

Gary Palmer and Paul DeMarco are in a runoff in Alabama. Interestingly, Paul DeMarco is using a quote from a post at RedState to attack Gary Palmer. What DeMarco is not saying is that RedState has endorsed Gary Palmer. We stand by Gary Palmer. As you all know, for a number of reasons, Gary was not my first choice. But he was always my second | Read More »

The One Rule

Before there was a RedState officially, its founders agreed on one rule and that rule has been diligently kept by their heirs here. Despite what many of our critics say, RedState is not a uniform and homogenous place. The front page contributors disagree on gay marriage, on immigration, war, isolationism, on the fight within the Republican Party, tactics strategy, etc. My job is spent often | Read More »
