Open Thread: Obama on ISIS Beheading. No Questions Please…It’s My Tee Time!
In case you missed the brief statement by the president on the beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, by the evil doers ISIS, here is a recap: He had all the furor of losing a golf game, as in not much but a stern face, rather than a president that wants payback for an American that was butchered by the same militant terrorist group that he | Read More »
Obama to Honduras: No
Soup USAid For You, But Refugees Can Stay in Line
Lately, I keep hearing the words of my favorite Talking Heads song, “Well, how did I get here?” Many here on RedState are history buffs and for good reason. We have to know where we’ve been in order to chart a course forward. So yesterday, Obama admitted that he is considering a plan to grant refugee status for children in Honduras, as if that would | Read More »

Sen. Ted Cruz Warns House of Senate Trojan Horse on Immigration
Yesterday, in a meeting with 20 House conservatives that make up the Conservative Opportunity Society, Sen. Cruz warned the House not to pass any immigration bill to fix the crisis at the border. He advised that the Senate would gut any House bill on fixing immigration and insert parts of S. 744, the loathed bipartisan Gang of Eight Immigration Bill from 2013. And here I thought | Read More »
The Out of Body President Hovers While Americans Are Murdered
Have we ever seen a president of the great United States of America more detached from reality as the one in office now? Why is that? How can he be so cold and callous to preface a speech on infrastructure and continue on like nothing in the world has happened, including the blatant murder of maybe 23 Americans and while our best friend in the | Read More »
When Illegals Don’t Think They’re Here Illegally, Chaos Ensues
PREFACE: This in not about the young children crossing the border. This is about adults and their thinking, not children. A very vocal and visible illegal immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, wrote about his visit to the border town of McAllen, Texas in Politico Magazine and the vigil he lead for the unaccompanied alien children: ….a crowd of about 30 people—mostly undocumented youth, a few citizen allies—started chanting something in | Read More »
WHERE’S BURWELL? Secretary of HHS Sylvia Burwell That Is.
You know, the new Secretary of HHS that breezed through her Senate confirmation 78-17 on June 5th. That was despite the unpopular Obamacare law and the botched rollout because many said she was smart, a proven manager, very capable and even trustworthy when she was the Office of Management and Budget Director for less than a year. So where is Sec. Burwell when Obamacare is a disaster still unfolding and we have | Read More »
$3.7 Billion For What? No Immigration Plan, No Border Enforcement, No Money. Period.
From WhiteHouse.gov, the White House just released its wish list for your tax dollars to support the illegal immigrants flooding our border. Price Tag: $3.8 Billion in Emergency Funding (no budget offsets required). Just the opening sentences of the press release tell you all you need to know (my commentary in parenthesis): While overall rates of apprehensions across our Southwest border remain at near historic lows, | Read More »
Obama’s New Offensive Immigration Play Seeks to Defend Gains
It’s impossible to please everyone all of time. For Obama, sometimes it’s even harder to please his base, which should be easy since typically they share the same agenda. But when it comes to immigration reform, there’s a lot of space between them, and his base is not happy. They have been clamoring for Obama to do something, halt deportations if nothing else, since the odds of getting a bill passed in | Read More »
Taunting is SO Unbecoming of the President of the United States
The Taunter-In-Chief has spoken on immigration….again. He will act if Congress won’t with his infamous pen and phone. Speaker Boehner told him last week he won’t bring up Senate Bill S. 744. Period. And so he goes to his teleprompter to taunt the Republicans into acting on a flawed bill. If I was a fly on the wall in that meeting, this is what I’d | Read More »
White House Planned and Prepared Way in Advance for Illegal Border Crossing Surge
Finally, an event the president can’t claim he was surprised about or heard about in the news! Yes, for the first time ever, his administration actually planned well in advance, for the massive swell of illegals coming across the border. Specifically they planned for 65,000 illegals, mostly children under the age of 17, to come across the Texas border. They planned for the surge by issuing an RFI on | Read More »
