    C-SPAN Tweeted a user-generated video clip of floor remarks from then Senator Joe Biden demanding that President George H.W. Bush refrain from naming a Supreme Court nominee because of the pending Presidential election in June of 1992. It hardly requires mention at this point how much the Democrats and their mouthpieces have invested in the storyline that Republicans are being historically evil in a totally unprecedented way over Obama appointing someone to fill Justice Scalia’s now-vacant seat. Yet here is Obama’s own Vice President making the case for us. Indeed, making the case for America. It can scarcely be better...

    Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it.

    At a rally in New Hampshire today, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen bragged about how Hillary Clinton handled and withstood the Benghazi hearings, getting a loud crowd response and thrilled laughter from Secretary Clinton, because what is more amusing an anecdote than answering for American casualties, am I right? "Eleven hours, Hillary was before that committee. Is there anybody here who thinks that anybody else in this race, Republican or Democrat, could have done what Hillary did? Not Donald Trump. Not Ted Cruz. And not Bernie Sanders!" Each time the crowd gleefully shouting back "NO!" as Hillary laughs it up. Hey Senator...

Eventually, Nazaryan deleted the tweet. He then tweeted an "explanation" for why he deleted it (but not an apology). Do note that the tweet was there for about nine hours before he finally decided he was tired of people replying to it and deleted it to save his mentions column. Not a word of apology in this tweet.

    Of all the sureties on this earthly plane, there is no more fundamentally, solidly certain than this: liberals have no use for God, unless they have a use for God. So it is of no surprise whatsoever that the Washington Post has this week an editorial that relies heavily and distinctly on scripture and Biblical law rather than judicial philosophy or constitutional law. Because in this case, the author is writing in favor of gun control. Rev. Rob Schenck writes against private ownership of arms in an argument that his headline summarizes as "you can't be pro-life and pro-gun," a...

You've seen several articles here at RedState about this new and epic battle. And the hottest part of this Hot Topic, and the source of many a Twitter Hot Take, is the "he said, he said" battle over immigration and who likes it too much. To lay it out quickly and less eloquently or well than Dan McLaughlin: At the debate, Rubio alleged that Cruz was to his left on immigration because Cruz supported "legalization."...

    Ibrahim Qosi, also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani, formerly of a cell in Guantanamo Bay, is now a leader with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) operating in Yemen. Qosi was in a video released by AQAP this week. Qosi joined AQAP in 2014 and became one of its leaders. Qosi and other AQAP commanders discussed their time waging jihad at length in the video, entitled "Guardians of Sharia." Islamic scholars ensure the "correctness" of the "jihadist project," according to Qosi. And the war against America continues through "individual jihad," which al Qaeda encourages from abroad. Here, Qosi...

    More than five months after attacks on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., left four Marines and a sailor dead, federal investigators still have not determined whether the attack was terrorism - and it's financially costing the families of those who died, as Purple Heart awards hang in the balance. The July 16 attack killed Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, 40; Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, 35; Sgt. Carson A. Holmquist; Lance Cpl. Squire D. "Skip" Wells, 21; and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith, 26. Other service members and a Chattanooga police officer also were wounded by Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez,...

    One of the people killed in the brutal slayings in San Bernardino this week was a Messianic Jew, Nicholas Thalasinos. You may not have heard about that because there is no media narrative served by pointing it out. His particular religious belief, that Jesus Christ is his savior, is of no consequence to the sorts of people who drive the mainstream media’s dramatic storytelling. Thursday’s coverage of the terror in San Bernardino was rife with lunacy and idiocy, and in that regard CNN had an especially banner day. But perhaps no moment was more awful or galling than when CNN...

    This is news from Louisiana on Sunday. Seventeen people were shot but survived when gunfire erupted on on a playground where a block party was going in New Orleans. If you did not hear about it, do not be surprised. It was barely news. It is amazing to think that there was not a huge media blitz, that there were not the standard outrageous, grandstanding tweets, or the ridiculous parade of pseudo-experts on CNN and MSNBC to spend hours talking about gun control. The endless blog posts, the overwrought editorials. None of those. And why is that? Here is a...

Just by Hillary's words and deeds, you can tell she subscribes to a belief system.

CNN just interviewed the father of the murderer of nine people at Umpqua Community College this week, and though he claims he is not blaming guns, he spent most of the interview doing that exact thing. "That's what guns are. The killers. It's as simple as that. It's black and white," he says. Guns are the killers. Not his son.

Currently, the name of the street is International Place. The move was done quickly, mostly because the President of China is coming to the United States tomorrow. Originally, Democrats had no objection to the move, until Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) stood up to object.

    As Kim Davis was released from jail today, she stood outside with Gov. Mike Huckabee and her attorney Matt Staver as they answered a few questions from the press. During the impromptu presser, Staver claimed that it is not Kim Davis who broke the law, but rather the clerks issuing licenses in her absence. Davis, through Staver, has taken the position that all the licenses issued since her refusal are invalid under the law, and that furthermore, she would have been breaking the law if she had issued them absent any direction from state lawmakers in Kentucky:

This is a distinct policy change that was quietly slipped in under the radar. Previously, persons who are transgender had the option of using one of several gender neutral bathrooms on campus, or the bathroom designated for their physical birth gender. (Otherwise known as "their gender.") "It's like kind of weird to see a dude go in a girl's bathroom...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 3/1/15 | Amy Miller
    The nasty weather didnt stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds. Code Pink and other anti-Israeli groups went into a frenzy against AIPAC, the Israel lobby, and what they believe is the Apartheid State of Israel. I also saw harassment of men, women, and children who had done nothing to deserve it except make the mistake of revealing their conference badge before they reached the door. Those who were obviously religious Jews (based on their head coverings, clothing, and...

    On CNN today, host Carol Costello was discussing the President's summit on extremism and made the startling comment. Citing a DHS report, Costello claims that authorities are concerned about "right wing citizens extremists". She goes on to add that they might be more dangerous than foreign groups. She begins by echoing one of the Obama administration's frequent moral equivalencytalking points, that terror is neither unique to Islam, nor is Islam necessarily the worst offender, and then takes off from there. "ISIS isn't the only threat for Americans. According to an intelligence report by the Department of Homeland Security, authorities are...

    News broke this week about a popular independent bookstore in San Francisco that is going out of business thanks to a citywide minimum wage hike that priced the owner out of business. Effectively, the minimum wage for this store's employees was "raised" to zero, as they are losing their jobs. On Thursday morning, the store's owner Alan Beatts appeared on Morning Joe on MSNBC to discuss his decision to close and how the wage hike negatively impacted his business. The panel was, to say the least, skeptical. The interview began with a hostile inquiry from Mika Brzezinski and only got...

    Its hard to tell my story without sounding like I am blaming people. I think it is important to know the difference between explanations, blaming, and excuses. I just think its important for others to be able to identify. Like so many experience, what seemed to me a happy home when I was small, turned into dysfunction, heartache, and disaster over the course of my double-digit years and throughout high school. My Dad was a fun-loving and good-humored man with a tortured soul who eventually battled his demons with alcohol alone. I watched my childhood knight slowly, then suddenly slide...

    Tonight the President delivered his State of the Union remarks. It was a grandiose speech with lofty ideals, delivered with all of the considerable rhetorical charms at his disposal, sure to go down in history as a prime exemplar of "how it's done." Wait .. hang on. I've just been informed that I was watching March of the Penguins. My bad. As it turns out, the President's speech was pretty humdrum and more than a little silly in places, delivered with all the contrived bluster of his considerable self-regard and gift for delusion. Eh, close enough. Nevertheless, in the spirit...

    This weekend and into Monday morning, the usual cast of characters and character assassins have been spouting nonsense about America and Islam and war and soldiers, all in the wake of the record-smashing opening for the movie American Sniper. Michael Moore weighed in, as did Seth Rogen, to name two of many. Among the words thrown around were "Nazi", "mass murderer", "coward" and even that most damning of epithets, Republican. That's what they have to say about a soldier. (Remember, as we go on through this story, that liberals love the troops. You'll have to keep reminding yourself because it...

    This new video from Digitas Daily requires little explanation. Last weekend, millions marched through the streets of Paris in a show of both solidarity and defiance after the brutal terror attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish market in the city. Over 40 world leaders were in attendance. President Obama was not among them. [youtube="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmHSJn7ZBlw&ab_channel=DigitasDaily"]

    Full size image below. It is not necessary for me to recount for you the events in Paris, the controversy that led up to them, or the consequences in the last week. This you already know. The whole world knows. It is enough to say that, in the name of Islam, terrorists murdered. In response to satire, terrorists, attacked. In the presence of free speech, terror tried to silence. As the millions marching in Paris and other cities around the world yesterday attest, the free nations of this earth are not prepared to give up their freedom. Not just yet.

    The BBC and other outlets report this morning that as many as four gunmen have entered a residential apartment building in Ghent, Belgium and have taken hostages. ABC/Reuters reports: Four gunmen in Belgium have taken several people hostage after they entered a flat in the north-western city of Ghent, according to unconfirmed reports. Heavily-armed police have surrounded the area and authorities have urged residents to stay indoors. The state prosecution service said there were no immediate indications of a link to terrorism. It is not known if the event is related to the Sydney Siege. Reports continue to break on...

    Somebody has to be the good guy. So says Peggy Noonan this week in the wake of the torture report, a 14 million page accounting of mostly standard, typical, usual, unremarkable methods of forcibly extracting information from an enemy. And isnt that a word we seem to have forgotten: enemy. The concept of an enemy is one of the most basic, primitive understandings possible. It is obvious, and should require no explanation. And yet here we are. Because we dont have them, anymore. There is no evil empire. The modern sensibility, informed heavily by pseudo-leftist pop culture and leftover hippie...
