    There is simply no way to read this other than that they stand by what was told to Andy Park in the video. A man, dressed as a man, who does not claim to be a woman, and does not claim to identify as a woman, may use the restroom designated for women if he feels more comfortable there.
  • BUSTED! Watch Biden in '92 Say Senate Should REFUSE to Hold Hearings On Bush SCOTUS Nominees

    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...

    "If I hadn't had the gun, this news story would be about me and my mother being dead."A man in Dekalb County, Georgia is thankful today for the presence of a gun in his home, crediting that fact with saving his own life and his mother's after two men forced their way into his home and began beating them and demanding money. From ABC: "When I opened the door, these two guys stormed in with guns and started pistol-whipping me and took me to the ground," said Hernandez. One of the intruders went after his mother, who was trying to...

    Alexander Nazaryan, senior writer for Newsweek, on social media Wednesday compared the Cruz campaign in Iowa to the Nazi Beer Hall Putsch in a gross Tweet featuring the Nazi swastika flag. 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...

    TedCruz and MarcoRubio. RubioandCruz. Ted VERSUS Marco. That's the news that is fit to print after this week's Republican Primary Debate from CNN and Salem. 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...

    Stars and Stripes ^ | 12/5/15 | Dan Lamothe
    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,...

    The litany set forth above has shown up in my Facebook feed oh, three or four times now, at least; if you have friends on Facebook or Twitter or even Pinterest who are socially liberal on both guns and abortion, you probably have seen it too. More than anything, it’s the sheer question-begging dishonesty of the thing that offends me. It would be difficult to list all the ways this is misleading and deceptive, but let’s cover eight of the big ones, and hopefully save all of us the labor of having to type this out every time this thing...
  • CNN Asks Slain San Bernardino Messianic Jewish Man’s Widow If He Was Asking For It

    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...

    Even when one doesn't profess to, or proselytize for, a particular religion, it is sometimes apparent what flavor of belief system they buy. You have, I'm sure, met an older person at a a grocery store or football game and thought, oh yeah, that's a Christian. Well the same is true for Hillary Clinton. Just by Hillary's words and deeds, you can tell she subscribes to a belief system. She gave a speech on Thursday at the Council on Foreign Relations in which she discussed at length the precepts of that system. And much like her would-be predecessor, hers is...

    The Right Scoop ^ | 10/3/15 | Caleb Howe
    "I'm not trying to say that they're to blame for what happened. But if Chris had not been able to get hold of 13 guns it wouldn't have happened." 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.

    Conservative Review ^ | 9/24/15 | Rob Eno
    Today, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to the Senate floor to advocate for the changing of the name of the street on which the Chinese Embassy stands to Liu Xiaobo Plaza. 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.

    VIDEO: On Fox Business Network on Friday, Sheriff of Arizona's Pinal County Paul Babeu was on to discuss illegal immigration and illegal immigrant crime, when he dropped a rhetorical bomb on the President's policies to date: "A lot people talk about the 12 to 20 million illegals who are here. Let's talk about the 67,000, the smaller portion of criminal illegals who've committed serious, violent crimes in our country who have been released. President Obama has led the largest prison break in U.S. history releasing these criminals." A hard line indeed. Babeu points out the common sense and obvious point...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 9/8/15 | Caleb Howe
    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:

    The American Spectator ^ | 8/28/2015 | Caleb Howe
    On Friday morning at the Jackson Hole Summit, Judy Shelton of the Sound Money Project and Atlas Network spoke on the subject of the gold standard and addressed the perception that people who even dare to mention it are lunatics or, as The American Spectator noted earlier today, Quixotic. Shelton's presentation focused in the main on the numbers and the policies. Dr. Shelton pointed out that the Fed can't seem to face up to a simple, apparent, easily understood fact: Their policies aren't working. "The difference between our summit, and the one the Feds are holding up the road, is...

    Education in America is bad and deficient. I hear that all the time. Unless you live in the woods or are a dead person come back to haunt my blog posts, you have also heard it time and again. Politically, both the left and the right make this claim, but obviously for different reasons. On the right, the complaints are usually that no one teaches about the founding fathers or the greatness of America anymore, that teachers are too leftist and liberal and teach social justice, and of course, COMMON CORE!!!!!!!! On the left, the complaint is that schools just...
