1. November is Coming

Normally at RedState we post a brief description of any videos we post. But this one … you just have to watch it.November. It’s coming.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. 39 Days…

Over the past 20 months, you have heard from me and my colleagues in the House about the importance of this election cycle.Today I am writing with a clear and immediate message we cannot afford to ignore: 39 Days…that’s all the time left for you to make a difference this election cycle.I cannot stress this point enough: we are in the final stretch. Democrats are desperate – and without your support Nancy Pelosi will still be holding the Speaker’s gavel in 2011.That is why the NRCC has launched its 39 Days Campaign. This initiative will provide you with 39 candidates and 39 facts you cannot ignore. Additionally, it lays down a challenge to help raise $39k a day to help keep Republicans on offense down the stretch – and every dollar will go to ensuring victory in November.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. K.O.! Union Throws in Towel on Arizona Boycott

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has knocked the once-mighty United Food & Commercial Workers union out of union boycott of Arizona over SB1070.It might be the fact that Brewer doesn’t cower to union thug-like tactics, or it could be the fact that she punches back twice as hard. Either way, the UFCW is throwing in the towel on its Boycott Arizona campaign.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. ‘Hippie punching.’

Executive summary: David Axelrod conference-called lefty bloggers to beg for their help in the November elections (because they’ve been ever so useful so far in the 2010 election cycle); and apparently the lefty bloggers are feeling quite aggrieved and put-upon for being called upon to do as they’re bid. One even went so far to as to categorize the entire interaction between the Democratic establishment and the netroots in furtive, sexually shameful terms (one hopes that this… no, that’s too vicious a comment to make); apparently, this is something that happens often enough that it has the name of ‘hippie punching.’Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Debra Burlingame Reacts to Obama

Debra Burlingame, spoke exclusively to RedState in reaction to President Obama’s comment that America could “absorb” another terrorist attack. Ms. Burlingame is co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America and the sister of hijacked American Airlines flight 77 pilot Charles Burlingame.RedState asked Ms. Burlingame to respond to comments reported by celebrity Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in his forthcoming book, “Obama’s Wars.” Please click here for the rest of the post.

6. The Pledge to Nowhere

I want Republicans to win.But not just for the sake of it. It is not enough simply to get power. Republicans must demonstrate that they actually understand why they were sent home in 2006 and 2008, and that they are 100% committed to changing the direction of Washington now that America seems poised to give them another chance. Fail to do that and the American people will send them home again.Yesterday’s much anticipated “Pledge to America” represents a glimpse into how Republicans plan to govern, and simply put, it’s a pledge to nowhere.Please click here for the rest of the post.
