  • Erick Erickson: I'm gonna give Trump a chance (no, I'm not a sellout)

    Scripture teaches us that “when pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” (Prov 11:2). During the 2016 election, I was adamantly opposed to Donald Trump. Much of the media cited a piece I wrote in mid-February planting my flag against Trump as one of the major pieces to spark the #NeverTrump movement. I wrote in that piece that if the GOP went with Trump that the party was not only going to lose the White House, but see devastation down ballot. All the polling showed it. The polling had been right during the primaries. Trump was the...

    “Ted Cruz will be remembered fondly by history,” he wrote at the Resurgent, “for standing up for conviction and principle and defying Cheeto Jesus and his merry lynch mob of alt-right unprincipled racists and whores who have taken over the GOP.”

    There was a time when people like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson were powerful voices within the Conservative movement. That was BT or “Before Trump,” when most American Conservatives were asleep at the wheel and operating on status quo neo-conservative autopilot, completely unaware that the maverick radio voices we hailed as rebels, were actually globalist shills-for-hire. The silent majority was silent because we were napping, however, Trump has awakened the slumbering giant and we’re hip to the globalist trick played upon us by so-called radio conservatives, politicians, media, and pundits, who subtly pepper falsehoods like, amnesty is good,...

    The weekend's last RedState Gathering panel tried to keep a stiff upper lip in the face of the Trump Revolution. Only reality kept getting in the way. Katie Pavlich, a Townhall editor and Fox News contributor, spoke what was probably on many attendees' minds Sunday. She clearly didn't take any joy in putting it out there. "There aren't as many conservatives in the country as we thought there were," Pavlich said during the last of three intellectually packed days in Denver. The rise of Donald Trump, compounded with avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, made that all too clear over the past...

    This is one of those times I have to come to readers for help. We’ve got specific projects here that we want to do, but we do not have the revenue to begin those projects. As you can imagine, being a Never Trump site is not nearly as lucrative as being on the under the table Trump payroll. Specifically, we want to start doing some quality live-streaming of my radio program taking advantage of Facebook Live.

    Conservative blogger and broadcaster Erick Erickson joined Glenn’s radio program Wednesday to discuss the political landscape and the upcoming 2016 RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado. When Glenn asked Erickson how we could put the fractured alliance between conservatives and libertarians back together, Erickson expressed his doubts on this happening anytime soon. “All the people who supported Trump in the primary are mad at the establishment. They hate the Republicans in Washington,” Erickson said. “Whether Trump wins or loses, these are going to be the Republicans still in charge, and Donald Trump has already said he’s perfectly happy cutting deals with...

    Breitbart ^ | July 27, 2016
    Editor’s Note: Erick Erickson gushed over Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, which was universally panned. The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. “They did it for power” or “she stuck to him for her own benefit” are the most common ones. But in a day and age where marriages crumble and kids wind up...

    Glenn Beck is one of America’s most influential commentators, and we need to help him save face while abandoning his “Never Trump” vow. “My children” is the primary motivator Beck lists for refusing to endorse Donald Trump now that his favored candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, is out of the race. “Trump is the face of the GOP. Well, that makes us… pretty racist. It makes us big government guys. …I’m none of those things. …and I refuse to have my children think that I tolerated that.”Beck sounds perplexed. He claims a moral stand against Trump for the sake of his “children,”...

    A group of prominent conservative activists, including the writer and radio host Erick Erickson, aren’t satisfied with Bill Kristol’s suggestion of David French as a third party candidate and are still looking for another alternative to Donald Trump. The activists are working separately from Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard who favors French, according to two sources familiar with the discussions. “We’re not going to be jumping on board with what Kristol is doing,” said a person involved in the discussions. “We learned about this from the media along with everyone else.” Organizers of the self-described Conservative Against...

    Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, calls Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson “useful idiots” regarding their defense of Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg. From The Federalist: Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson have both written pieces in response to this week’s meeting with Facebook – Beck as someone who attended, Erick as someone who didn’t. Both suggest the same thing about the conservative relationship with Facebook: that criticizing the corporate entity for its obvious bias in its news curation is an act of hypocrisy and nothing more than a Jesse Jackson-style shakedown. These are the complaints of useful idiots. They...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 4-07-2016 | Sundance
    It’s predictable; it’s transparent (if you dig into it); and yet it remains as one of the most undiscussed aspects to the current political climate: Multi-media political pundits, including big name National Radio Talk Show Hosts, being paid by DC operatives, Super-PACs, and Campaigns to protect the establishment figures. They hide, at least they try to, behind layers of constructed LLC’s intended to protect them from sunlight. They also rely upon delays in legally required reporting timeframes to carry out their goals and avoid discovery until after they have been successful in their efforts. Another example surfaces today. Erick Erickson’s...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 03-29-2016 | Sundance
    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict. So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Eric Errickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund...

    Pundit Erick Erickson's The Resurgent website got 10K from anti-Trump, Paul Singer-funded Our Principle PAC in their latest FEC reported, GotNews.com can report. The funding from the neoconservative billionaire wasn't disclosed to Erickson's readers at the new venture. Singer, who is a pro-gay marriage establishment billionaire, was one of the major financial donors for Marco Rubio. Singer is also a major supporter of National Review which was dispensing the #NeverTrump at CPAC.

    For seven months, Republicans -- myself included -- have argued against the data. The data showed that Donald Trump would be a viable candidate. Many of us presumed he would eventually fade. Many of us presumed he would eventually burn out his supporters with his gaffes, waffling and walk backs. What many of us misunderstood was Republican voter anger. There are a lot of angry people out there and they are flocking to Donald Trump. They have good reason to be angry. Washington politicians, particularly Republicans, have broken promise after promise. People in Washington seem to be doing quite well...

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said conservative blogger Erick Erickson, who has recently said the Republicans should prepare for a third-party alternative if Donald Trump wins the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, is “functionally supporting Hillary Clinton.”

    Last week, I listened to Erick Erickson state that he could not vote for Donald Trump, because it would be a betrayal of his values. The radio host asked him that if it came down to a choice between Hillary Clinton and Trump, would he not prefer Trump? No, replied Mr. Erickson, who again stated that supporting Trump would be a betrayal of his values. The host was a bit taken aback, and tried to reason with Erickson. Surely, he didn't mean that he would prefer Hillary to Trump. Yes, Erickson bluntly said, he would prefer Hillary as president. He...
  • Erick Erickson: My Gumbo Recipe

    Everybody in Louisiana has a gumbo recipe. I was deeply offended when Bon Appetit magazine did a profile on college tailgating using the LSU v. Ole Miss game from last year. Their gumbo recipe used carrots and oregano. That is horrifying. The trinity is simple: onion, bell pepper, and celery. Carrots do not play a part in it. Neither does oregano. Below is my recipe. I make it when the weather turns cool and keep making it through Mardi Gras. If you want a seafood gumbo, leave out the chicken and sausage. Do everything else in the recipe. Before adding...

    Donald Trump just trumped all the Republican candidates for President. The day after the mom jeans wearing squat to pee President came out to assure us that tolerance, gun control, and climate change would save us from ISIS, Donald Trump demanded we bar any muslims from entering this country and bar any American citizen who is muslim from re-entering the United States. Set aside the merits of what amounts to at least, in part, an unconstitutional position.This is actually brilliant politics for the here and now. Immediately, every other Republican candidate except Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% rushed out to...

    This past weekend at my annual RedState Gathering, I rescinded an invitation to Donald Trump to speak after getting the runaround from his campaign on what he really meant when he said Fox News' Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes or wherever." It was an unfortunate outcome. As I told the Trump campaign, I feel like the other candidates have been doing their best to ignore Trump and treat him as a sideshow, when, in fact, he was sitting in the center seat at the debate. The other candidates, the media and the Republican Party should give...
