Today many of us at Team RedState are multitasking — as we work to bring you the important stories of the day, we’re also doing things like baking pies and prepping the kitchen for Thanksgiving feasts with our families. It’s been a disheartening few weeks since the election, but as the scent of my famous chocolate-cinnamon sheet cake and fresh-baked rolls fills my home, I can’t help but reflect on the things that are really, really wonderful in my life. I’m blessed beyond measure to have my mom and stepdad still around, to have three healthy, happy sons (and two daughters-in-law), and the most perfect 20-month-old granddaughter ever. In a time of economic uncertainty, I’m grateful to have a job doing what I love and to work with the best writers in the business.
I’m extremely grateful for the people who make it possible for me to do what I do — RedState’s loyal readers, and especially our VIP members. As I wrote earlier this month when we celebrated RedState VIP’s third birthday, it’s because of your direct support that we were able to survive the COVID economic crash and Biden’s Big Tech censorship. While recently there are positive signals that the Big Tech façade is crumbling, we’re facing another tough economy that will be impossible to weather without the direct support of VIP members.
Because of our VIP members, here are some of the topics we’ve been able to report on:
- Covid’s origins in Wuhan
- BLM and its 2020 “summer of love”
- Branch Covidian policies and the destruction of freedom from vaccine mandates
- The 2020 election and its “fortification”
- Biden’s war on energy
- The harm school closures caused to America’s children
- The truth about the kangaroo committee on January 6
- Parents being labeled “domestic terrorists” for simply wanting to be involved in their child’s education
- The unprecedented FBI raid on Trump
- Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan
At RedState, we’ve been at the forefront of covering Joe and Hunter Biden’s connections to China and the contents of Hunter’s laptop (which CBS News finally admitted are authentic!), the origins of COVID-19 in Wuhan (and the involvement of people like Anthony Fauci and Peter Daszak in its development and cover-up), and broke the story of the defection of China’s counterintelligence chief, Dong Jingwei.
Our original and exclusive stories have been able to move the needle, too. Until RedState uncovered a massive conflict-of-interest problem between LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer and the CDC in the summer of 2022, Ferrer was set to reimplement mask mandates county-wide. The aftermath of that story led Ferrer to back down. Now she’s itching to again go back to masking, and the “public health experts” in DC are right there with her, so we’re going to have to keep the pressure up — and, we absolutely will.
During this midterm election, we were able to host a 6-hour special RedState Live chat featuring a dozen RedState contributors throughout the country, bringing up-to-the-minute coverage and analysis, because of your support. We had local contributors on the ground in two key battleground states (Cameron Arcand in Arizona and Brittany Sheehan in Nevada), and through Dennis Santiago and Jennifer O’Connell, we published more than a dozen profiles of state and local candidates.
Since then, we’ve been watching the results across the country closely to ensure the integrity of our elections and report the truth. We’re continuing to monitor what’s happening in Arizona, to hold elections officials there to account and shine a spotlight on any corruption and incompetence that needs to be revealed.
Some of the country’s attention has already shifted to the 2024 presidential race, and we will bring you unrivaled coverage from across the country – not just from Washington, DC.
You can continue to count on us to fight against the true threats to democracy – election integrity, the Biden administration’s radical agenda, Big Tech censorship, and the attempts to indoctrinate and mutilate our children.
Because we know that all of our readers are facing tough times economically and have to make difficult choices about how to spend their hard-earned dollars, and as one way of expressing how thankful we are for your continued support, we’re offering 40% off VIP memberships when you use the code THANKFUL. As our current VIP members know, with your VIP Gold membership, you’ll enjoy ad-free reading across all of the Townhall Media sites and have access to exclusive and original VIP podcasts, live chats, stories, and analysis. And you’ll be contributing to the original investigative journalism that RedState has become famous for.
I hope that all of you have a peaceful, happy, and healthy Thanksgiving, free of political drama around the table and full of delicious feasting. Again, thank you for making what we do possible.
