Kansas Senator Pat Roberts Does Not Live In Kansas
Sen. Pat Roberts has been in Congress since 1981. His principle place of residence is in Virginia. But he is Kansas’s Senator. In fact, Roberts claims to own a residence in Ford County, Kansas, but the Ford County Tax Appriser lists Pat Robert’s residence in Alexandria, VA as the address to send the bill to for his Kansas property. Sen. Roberts wife is even a very successful real estate agent — in Virginia.
Roberts has had to admit he rents his Kansas house and he sleeps on a friend’s recliner when he goes to Kansas. When the New York Times broke this story Friday, the Hill noted Roberts was staying at a hotel, instead of sleeping on the friend’s recliner.
This news must be greatly panicking Roberts and the NRSC. Over the weekend an unknown group conducted a poll testing a new name against Milton Wolf. The poll wanted people to know that Milton Wolf is Barack Obama’s cousin (which is true), but more interestingly it did not list Pat Roberts as a candidate. Milton Wolf, a solid conservative, is rapidly getting support from the conservative grassroots and from here at RedState. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

Shibboleths of the Damned
Inevitably in discussions about Christianity, gay rights, the church in general, etc. some well educated fool throws out the shellfish and mixed fabric clothing line.…
In fact, often times the person who throws out the shellfish and mixed fabric line claims to be a Christian — one of those Christians with a mind so open to everything it is full of nothing.
Dear well meaning poseur, atheist, and other people hostile to Christianity — these are shibboleths of the damned. If you throw these out, it is an immediate signal you are more likely than not destined for hell fire. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

Senate Democrats Exposed on Iran
The media is constantly bemoaning the lack of bipartisanship in Congress, with the lion’s share of their scorn directed at conservatives for being too “intransigent.” Well, almost the entire Senate GOP Conference – both moderate and conservative members – actually united behind a Democrat-sponsored bill to implement sanctions on Iran. Yet, the Democrats and their allies are spoiling this superlative opportunity to work together on a goal that is supposedly shared by both parties. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →
