Proctor & Gamble Withdraws From NFL Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

In the face of a public relations crisis surrounding domestic violence issues involving Ray Rice and several other players, Procter & Gamble/Crest Toothpaste pulled a planned 32 NFL team campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports tweeted that the consumer products giant jettisoned the project “due to recent off field events.” Sports Illustrated reported that all of the NFL teams were going to use pink mouth guards during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Moreover, players were to use social media to further promote the cause.

Maybe they’re just hoping that everyone will forget about this whole immigration thing? Check it out…

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The federal government refuses to say whether prosecutors in Yuma, Arizona, have scaled back a years-old program that guarantees jail time for most immigrants caught crossing the border illegally and which law enforcement officials say is crucial to public safety.

Reports that federal prosecutors have stopped some prosecutions under Operation Streamline surfaced nearly two weeks ago when Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder seeking information on the status

Former Vice President Al Gore is being sued by Al Jazeera America, the Associated Press reported Friday. The lawsuit comes just one month after Gore sued the news network, saying it was withholding tens of millions of dollars it owed after purchasing Current TV from him and other shareholders in 2013.

Thus, it seems an exchange of lawsuits has begun over the controversial sale of Current TV.

Former US Vice President Al Gore speaks about climate change during the Fourth Annual Rhode Island Energy and Environmental Leaders Day at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, June

President Obama must really want to maintain his popularity in Hollywood.

Why else would he write a letter to Melissa Rivers praising her mother and late comedian Joan Rivers, the same woman who called him gay and his wife a “tranny” in July?

Melissa Rivers recently spoke to E! hosts of the support she has received since the passing of her mother Joan on September 4.

“She affected so many people, and people you would never expect to have humor,” explained Rivers. “I received a letter from the White House, from President Obama — someone who

NY Times Book Review Banishes David Limbaugh's Jesus on Trial

The New York Times (or Slimes as Mark Levin accurately calls it) pulled this schtick with Dinesh D’Souza book not being placed on their review list. Now, David Limbaugh’s Jesus on Trial is the target of the liberal censors. New York Times best-seller list is denying best-seller status to Limbaugh. The book is already #1 on Amazon.

“About being in the – about being first lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys,” she began during her Sept. 17 visit to the hospital that specializes in treating childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Ninth Circuit

morgan hills

Yesterday, the US Ninth Circuit confirmed a February decision by a panel of that court that school officials can forbid students who are American citizens from wearing American flag themed clothing to school because of the threats made against those students (see earlier RedState coverage here and here).

Rejecting free speech arguments from parents, Republican lawmakers and conservative groups, a federal appeals court on Wednesday refused to reconsider a ruling that found a South Bay high school had the legal right to order students wearing American-flag adorned shirts to turn them inside out during a 2010 Cinco de

The dishonesty of assault weapon laws

asslt0

Last week an op-ed from left wing “investigative jounalism” non-profit, ProPublica appeared in the New York Times. Surprisingly, it laid out the fraudulent nature of the legal attacks on “assault weapons” and showed the actual damage it is doing to the reduction of attacks committed with the use of firearms.

Over the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned.

That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb

The GOP’s Era of No Feelings

A look at almost all the polling shows that this is supposed to be the GOP’s year. The Republican Party has everything to gain – control of the Senate, greater control of the House, an effective means of stopping the President Barack Obama’s agenda. It is difficult – though not entirely impossible – to imagine the GOP not meeting at least their goal for the Senate. Though the poll is a tremendous outlier, my colleague RMJ noted earlier that Mark Udall’s performance in Colorado is abysmal. This is but one example of Democrats slipping in places they, frankly, shouldn’t be.
