Let’s Go Exploring

“Everything familiar has disappeared! The world looks brand new!,” said Hobbes. “A new year… a fresh clean start,” replied Calvin. “It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy… let’s go exploring!” Twenty (!!!) years ago today, Calvin and Hobbes came to an end. Ten years later, I would finish my first year at the helm of RedState. And now ten years after that my time has | Read More »

Marco Rubio’s Path to Victory

If Rubio fizzles in Iowa, unable to get third there, and then fizzles in New Hampshire, he starts to slow down significantly as voters and the press look to see who did better than Rubio in New Hampshire. If it is Chris Christie, we’re going to hear a lot about him as we head to South Carolina. And because of Christie’s terrible gun views, the south is going to consolidate even more quickly to Ted Cruz. That makes it harder for Rubio to regain any momentum.

Matt Bai is the Latest Member of the Circle of Jerks to Get Donald Trump Wrong

If the Circle of Jerks who make up the DC-NYC political reporter class were around for the birth of Jesus, they’d write pieces about how the dregs of society showed up, but no rich people did. The media would be on to a new story by the time the Magi showed up. By the tie Herod started slaughtering every male child under two, the Circle | Read More »

The Christmas Eve Show

I believe in the Doctrine of Vocation. It is a Christian doctrine that means I am supposed to glorify God in all that I do. Every year for Christmas Eve I do a show on WSB Radio, the nation’s most listened to news/talk station. I do a deep dive into the meaning of Christmas and the theology behind this baby born to die. If you | Read More »

Cruz, Rubio, and Looking The Other Way

“What all of the people attacking [mc_name name='Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)' chamber='senate' mcid='C001098' ] fail to understand is that the outsiders are showing more grace to their own than the insiders are showing to their own.”I have no idea who on the Cruz campaign keeps telling Cruz to go on Fox this week, but I think he has not done himself many favors.

The Fundamental Flaw at the Heart of Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s Campaigns

“Arguing about how pure a conservative either Cruz or Rubio is, is like arguing over FL and IF diamond clarity.”When [mc_name name='Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)' chamber='senate' mcid='R000595' ] ran for the Senate, I backed him in 2009. He was around three percent in the polls. I declared his candidacy a hill to die on. I’d do it all over again. I adore the guy. Jim | Read More »
