U.S. Soldiers in “War” with ISIS Not Eligible for Medals?
With 1,600 military “advisers” on the ground in Iraq, 2,300 of our troops being deployed to the Middle East as a “special purpose marine air ground task force,” and ongoing airstrikes being conducted in Iraq and Syria against ISIS’s jihadist army, it is absolutely stunning that our military personnel are NOT eligible for certain military medals.
Why? Because the Obama Administration refuses to call our fight against ISIS terror a military campaign.

Obama Funded Islamist Rebels without Congressional Approval Creating ISIS
Adolf Hitler said, “the great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” Sadly, this could not be truer among Americans who believe big lies about Islam and how their tax dollars fund Islamists on multiple sides of conflicts throughout the Middle East. President Obama, Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, the CIA, among others, provided weapons | Read More »
The “Consider This” Podcast: Conservatives, Pick Your Battles!
Episode 88 of the Consider This Podcast has been released; conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. This time around, I spend a little time chiding those who are my ideological compatriots. So often I see in blogs, on Twitter and Facebook, such petty attacks against liberal targets that I think it diminishes our impact. In this episode, I note a couple of those that I’ve seen | Read More »
Should We Be Concerned?
Should we be concerned? Consider the following headlines: The rise of a formidable terrorist group that has vowed to strike in America. Tens of thousands of people pouring across our southern border unchecked. Ebola patients being brought back to America for treatment as our soldiers are sent to the Hot Zone to help, and now the first Ebola case in America. A mystery respiratory virus | Read More »
It’s Time to Ban Travel to Liberia – Updated
This time Ebola didn’t arrive in a specially-designed, hermetically-sealed aircraft, transferred to a space-age ambulance, tended by white space-suited attendants, and delivered to the most secure isolation wing at an Atlanta hospital.

Serious Middle Aged Northern VA Woman’s Life Revolves Around Pro-Choice
Imagine the setting, a dimly lit room, in a nice, well furnished house. A middle aged, well dressed woman wearing a light blue sweater and tan dress, sitting in a straight backed wooden chair with a serious look on her face as if she is about to pass on some important wisdom to the electorate. So what is this all important message, why it’s abortion. | Read More »
Is it time for Mississippi conservatives to teach the GOPe a lesson and vote for Travis Childers?
First, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: It is the stated position of Erick and the mods that Red State advocates voting for the most conservative candidate in the primaries, and the Republican in the general election. I agree with that, and it is not my intent here to troll or disrupt. Anyone who has read my earlier diaries knows that. However, if | Read More »
Consequences – Schmonsequences
President Obama, on speaking about Obamacare, “Ultimately, the buck stops with me. I’m the president. This is my team. If it is not working, it is my job to get it fixed.” Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, speaking about Benghazi, said “We wanted to be sure that whatever these independent, nonpartisan boards found would be made available to the Congress and to the American people, because, | Read More »
It’s Official. We Have FenceGate and Should Call it Like it Is.
Today the Director of the Secret Service, Julia Pierson, testified at the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee. I watched most of the hearing and like almost every other so-called phony scandal, the blunders by the SS seem to boil down to a culture problem. Which is weird since the president is supposed to be so worldly and culturally gifted that he finds it boring to talk | Read More »
Breaking: Another Judge Strikes Down Federal Subsidies in Obamacare
Ruling from the Pruitt vs Burwell Obamacare case. Summary: Federal Courts just hammered Obamacare yet again. The judge sided with the DC panel opinion that the language referring to “state exchanges” meant just that — State, not federal. This strikes against the federal exchanges set up later by the IRS. From the ruling “The court holds that the IRS Rule is arbitrary, capricious, an abuse | Read More »
Republican Party tagline through 2016: ‘We’re not them’
Thirty-five days until the November election and the Republican Party has long since gone to ground. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Boehner, McConnell and Co. had members locked in a basement somewhere deep within the U.S. Capitol — the federal witness protection program has nothing on the GOP when it comes to the art of disappearing. With polls indicating favorable results for the party on Nov. | Read More »
Prez Holds Special Dinner for Indian PM – Who is Fasting
While some people surf the sites I just gently float along, occasionally bumping into the flotsam and jetsam that makes it’s way onto the net. I landed at the blog section of The Hill where Justin Sink informs us that President Obama held a dinner in honor of new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And what a feast it was, featuring “…compressed avocado with goat cheese | Read More »
How Kamala Harris will replace Ruth Ginsburg on SCOTUS, after a brief detour as the new Attorney General
Last week, when the reports of Holder’s resignation broke, I heard the esteemed Jay Sekulow on the radio discussing the news. Before proceeding to shred Holder’s record at Justice, he spent a few minutes wondering aloud “why, now?” Sekulow, like myself, thinks there’s a master plan, a grand design behind the timing of the resignation. I fear he’s correct. Harry Reid went nuclear last year | Read More »
Two Victories for the Integrity of Elections
There were two recent encouraging developments regarding the integrity of voting in this country- one from Wisconsin and the other from Ohio. At issue was a recently passed voter ID law in Wisconsin in which a federal district court, at the request of civil rights groups, issued an injunction against its enforcement in the November 4th election this year. On appeal to the 7 Circuit | Read More »
