Red State Pushes #NeverTrump Writers Overboard – Becomes OrangeState

the Red State logo crossed out and underneath, the real new identity - OrangeState

by Richard Cameron   Red State’s Friday Massacre At this point, many of you have perhaps heard that a significant number of writers at RedState have been cashiered. Even CNN Money has reported on it.  Before I chimed in, I wanted to confer with one of my colleagues – Susan Wright – the writer generating the most site traffic and among the group that was dismissed, to get a sense of what the prevailing motive was behind the firings. As Erick Erickson, who himself was a writer at RedState until…

A Short Word: The Unmaking of America

by Wes Walker via libertyisftw.org America is the greatest, freest and most decent society in existence. It is an oasis of goodness in a desert of cynicism and barbarism. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world.” –Dinesh D’Souza While our story begins much earlier than 2015, the telling of the beginning of the great and dismal decline of our nation would require volumes of its own; however time is of the essence, so let us begin by acknowledging that the…

Are Evangelicals And The Religious Right Damaging Christianity With Their Trump Worship?

by Richard Cameron   A friend and colleague, alerted me to an interesting article published in the online site, Baptist News Global, entitled, “The death of Christianity in the U.S.”,  written by Miguel De La Torre.  The title seemed a bit hyperventilated, but as I began reading his column, it was clear that he had a point.  From the first paragraph: Christianity has died in the hands of Evangelicals.  Evangelicalism ceased being a religious faith tradition following Jesus’ teachings concerning justice for the betterment of humanity when it made a…

Trump at his speaking podium during rally in Phoenix, Arizona

by Richard Cameron The National Clown Gangsta made an appearance in Phoenix yesterday to flatulate.  It was not necessary, was disruptive and had nothing to do with governance.  Drumpf the Clown just needed a worship service.  He’s addicted to them now.  Trump essentially announced without actually doing so, a presidential pardon for a former law enforcement official (convicted Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio), that callously and deliberately disobeyed the clear and unambiguous order of a federal court. Because it is the right thing to do? No – because his shriveling…

Newt Gingrich’s “Understanding Trump” – No Thanks Newt, It’s Not That Complicated

by Richard Cameron “Understanding Trump” I happened to be randomly making a tour of the Costco in Glendale, Arizona while my mother was having an eye exam.  In the course of my aimless rambling, strolling past the books offered for sale – one hardcover book arrested my attention.  It was “Understanding Trump” by none other than persistent Trump carney barker, Newt Gingrich.
