  • Twitter Police Will Not Allow ‘Candidates for Office’ to Declare Election Victory Until They Say So

    #ProTip to Donald Trump: Stay clear of your Twitter machine on election night, man, because the Gestapo Twitter police will not allow “candidates for office” (YOU) to declare victory unless a victory is “authoritatively called,” or something. Shocked? Me, neither. Since when did a social messaging platform become the ultimate arbiter of when a presidential candidate can declare victory and when he or she cannot? But we’ll get to that, in a minute. As reported by our friends at Twitchy, the New York Times — All the News That’s Fit to Skew — late last month fretted aloud about what...
  • Anonymous RedState Editor Who Attacked Dr. Fauci as a ‘Mask Nazi’ Outed as Secret Dr. Fauci Staffer

    Through a bit of remarkable reporting by Lachlan Markay, The Daily Beast has revealed the mysterious life of William B. Crews. Known professionally as an official for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the public health agency overseen by Dr. Anthony Fauci, he is also the anonymous managing editor of pro-Trump website Red State. Known there by the pen name “streiff,” he has written a series of harangues attacking Dr. Fauci and the “deep state” over the pandemic response. For the blissfully uninitiated, Redstate holds sway in conservative circles, including with members of Congress and their staffers on...
  • Recent Election Data Suggest New Hampshire Returning to Red State Status

    New Hampshire is usually in the political spotlight only when our "first in the nation" primary comes around every four years. However, when the rest of the country is not watching, we hold other elections as well. This includes the general election that follows in the autumn, long after all the national news outlets and their reporters have packed up and left after the winter ritual earlier in the year. In the fall New Hampshire is not seen to be as critical and hardly garners more than a passing mention of our general election results given our meager four electoral...

    Despite the demonstrable fact that dying from COVID is about as likely as you getting a birthday card from a one-armed Himalayan banjo player you've never met, pinhead state governors, city mayors, and local officials all the way down to dogcatchers still insist on maintaining the fiction that merely catching the beerbug is a death sentence and that squashing the things until none of them are left is some sort of life-or-death priority. These "officials," self-liberated from the burden of actually consulting with others in the give-and-take inherent in representative government, are on power trips that no doubt give them...
  • Some numbers from Texas: A Blue wave in Texas? Let's look at some numbers.

    Blue wave in Texas?   Let's look at some numbers. On Tuesday, Texas Democrats nominated Mary "M.J." Hegar to run against Senator John Cornyn.  Miss Hegar defeated State Senator Roy West.   Altogether, less than 1 million Democrats showed up to vote:  52-47% or 40,000 votes. It was a contested election with lots of radio ads.  Most of the ones I heard were about the West campaign, claiming that Hegar was not a liberal.  On the other hand, she promoted her electability. I understand that COVID-19 was a factor but compare these numbers with the first round in March. Senator Cornyn got 1.4 million votes in...

    Like many of you, I could not believe what we were watching on TV, from St. John's Church burning in Washington D.C. to Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago saying "F.....U" to President Trump as violence swpt the city and more people were killed. Here in North Texas, we had protests but nothing got out of hand.  Yes, a man was beaten outside his business but the police presence was such that the curfew was enforced.   In Texas, we arrested people whereas they looted in other cities up north. The Dallas Morning News headline told the story:   "‘We’re not playing tonight,’ authorities say as they begin...

    Your chance of dying from COVID-19 is notably higher if you live in a blue state. There is only one reliable metric that reveals how likely you are to die from COVID-19 in a given state, and it isn’t what you’re seeing in the legacy media. The number of new cases and deaths, for example, are staples of news stories about the pandemic. Neither of these factoids, however, tells us very much in the absence of sophisticated epidemiological data that just isn’t yet available. A far more predictive metric is “death rate per million.” Why? Testing is far more consistent...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 13 Apr 2020 | Sundance
    It seemed clear several weeks ago this was going to happen. East coast blue state governors and West coast blue state governors are uniting to begin the economic civil war planning to block any White House effort to re-open the U.S. economy. The three step plan seems predictable: (1) Get out ahead of President Trump. (2) Defy the ‘all clear’ and shape economic benefit to their political allies. (3) Then use Fauci’s upcoming dossier to hit the administration for heartlessly opening the economy too early. ♦ On the East Coast the governors of New York (Cuomo), New Jersey (Murphy), Connecticut...

    As Democrats intone piously about saving the republic from a president who has "abused his power" and "committed high crimes," and the news media call it all "historic," somewhere, behind the scenes, the red-state Democrats are panicking. According to the Daily Caller: New internal polling by the Trump campaign suggests Democrats in pro-Trump districts should avoid supporting impeachment or risk losing re-election. The new poll, released Tuesday, surveyed 900 likely voters in the 30 congressional districts that President Donald Trump won in 2016 but are currently occupied by Democrats. Nice to see what everyone suspected.  Red-state Democrats in districts that voted for Trump...

    Freshman Rep. Katie Hill resigned Thursday in the wake of multiple controversies, including engaging in at least one sexual relationship with a campaign staff member. Conservative website Red State published intimate photos of the California Democrat on Oct. 18 after they were leaked to the site, sparking a debate about inappropriate relationships and “revenge porn.” Hill should not have engaged in a relationship with a subordinate while holding public office, and thus should shoulder the blame for that choice. Nonetheless, there’s little the public can do about her personal choices other than to call for her resignation. There may be...

    Millennial movers have hastened the growth of left-leaning metros in southern red states such as Texas, Arizona, and Georgia. It could be the biggest political story of the 2020s. Liberals in America have a density problem. Across the country, Democrats dominate in cities, racking up excessive margins in urban cores while narrowly losing in suburban districts and sparser states. Because of their uneven distribution of votes, the party consistently loses federal elections despite winning the popular vote. The most famous case was in 2016, when Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election despite her 2.4-million-vote margin. Clinton carried Manhattan and Brooklyn...

    Democrat Senators from red states have expressed concern that the impeachment process started by Nancy Pelosi "may spin out of control and destroy any chance their party might have of winning back the majority next year," according to a report from The Hill. These Democrats believe that if their party doesn't act quickly, Trump could "turn the tables on them." “It’s really incumbent on the House to really be laser-focused. The president is a master of pivoting and deflecting and I think it’s really important to stay focused,” said Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), who narrowly won re-election in a...

    A Zogby/Wall St. 24/7 poll released on Monday showed President Trump slightly ahead of the top 2020 Democratic hopefuls. The online poll, conducted August 9-12, surveyed 897 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3.3%. In a head-to-head race, Trump topped former Vice President Joe Biden by a margin of 46% to 45%. 9% were not sure. Sanders topped Trump with suburban women (45% to 36%), Hispanics (52% to 43%), African Americans (77% to 17%), Generation Z voters, those people born from 1995 to 2010 (66% for Sanders, Trump’s support was not available), medium-city voters (53% to...

    Vermont and Florida, both states with GOP governors, increased the age to purchase all firearms, including long guns, to 21. The anti-gun movement has clinched some wins, but South Dakota could be the next state to adopt a constitutional carry. Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem won the state’s gubernatorial race this year and said that concealed carry without permits could be on the table.

    I’m honestly not sure why most people go to college these days. It doesn’t seem to be for occupational readiness, because many of these majors aren’t in the least bit employable (outside of academia). It’s not to grow children into adults, because they’re being treated as though they’re in kindergarten. Students might want a degree in confirmation bias, but is that what their parents are expecting when they write the checks? Case in point: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs has a course on rhetoric that is requiring students to read anti-Trump materials, Campus Reform reported. The best part? The...

    Mueller’s team continues to flop around with no clear direction as the trial of former Trump associate Paul Manafort approaches the end of it’s first week. A few days ago, RedState Editor Joe Cunningham wrote about the Mueller team’s attempt to publicize Paul Manafort’s clothing choices. That was clearly an shot at coloring jury perceptions while having no factual basis to the charges at hand. You can read about that here. To be sure, anyone who wears a jacket made out of ostrich probably deserves to do hard time, but the relevance to which it played in proving Manafort a...

    On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed a massive tax cut and reform bill crafted by Republicans without the help of one Democrat vote. One of the bill’s more controversial measures was the limitation of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction to $10,000 through 2026. According to the CPA Journal, taxpayers in California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the District of Columbia lose the most by the limitation of the SALT deduction. That said, most taxpayers will see their federal taxes reduced, even in high-tax states. Tax laws, as with the regulatory compliance burden and lawsuit...
