Hillary Agrees with us about how Iran Treated our Soldiers!?
Ever since Iran released our soldiers last week, Barack Obama, John Kerry, and has done a full court press in the media trying to celebrate it as a triumph of American diplomacy while complimenting the Iranians’ humanity. We know this is total crap, but the truth has never stopped the Obama administration before. As the Democratic Party’s current frontrunner, if a greatly hobbled one, one would | Read More »
Guess Who Obama and Kerry want to Outsource Refugee Screening to?
We’ve written in the past at RedState on how little the Obama administration cares about screening refugees trying to come into America, but we’ve only dealt with the wave of Middle Eastern refugees thus far. Now, we know–as if we didn’t before–that this extends to other refugees as well. News broke yesterday that Barack Obama and John Kerry are planning to outsource Central American refugee | Read More »

Barack Obama’s State of the Union broke a viewing record! …As part of its crash into the cellar.

Record Low Ratings for Obama’s Final State of the Union #SOTU
I confess: I grew tired of hearing Obama speak sometime around the first year of his Presidency, if not before. After seven years of his Presidency, it looks like America is coming around to where I am. Obama’s last State of the Union address, which he made sure to try to bill as a special, “non-traditional” one, was a historic flop with audiences when compared to | Read More »
Obama Plans “Audacious Executive Action” in Final Year
If you were expecting Obama, based on his State of the Union address, to be more interested in seeking compromise and working with Congress for bipartisan goals–and let’s be honest, who really was?–you’re about to be sorely disappointed. The President, through his chief of staff Denis McDonough, is promising us that he won’t let up on executive actions in the final year of his term. From The | Read More »
The US Navy In the Persian Gulf Fiasco And American Power In the Age Of Obama
Yesterday, clearly as a bit of extemporaneous theater to celebrate Obama’s State of the Union self-idolatry, Iran seized two US Navy vessels and ten US sailors. The sailors and vessels have since been returned. However, what you are seeing above is what the Middle East is seeing. If you don’t feel a sense of shame, don’t read further.

House GOP one-ups Obama’s SOTU on criminal justice reform
President Barack Obama used his State of the Union message to push a forward-looking agenda, as is the style these days. One element was to reduce sentences on crimes he doesn’t think are all that serious. The House GOP is going a step further, and interestingly enough, Obama is opposing it. I guess he only wants show reform, not real reform.
Study: 93% of US Counties Still Haven’t Recovered from the Recession
Those of you who watched the State of the Union address last night know that President Obama spent some time, as usual, crowing about his economic record. To my surprise, he mentioned the “Great Recession” only once, but he spent plenty of time talking about how the economy has grown during his term is office. As you might expect, these words need to be taken with a | Read More »
Tonight’s State of the Union Address!
Tonight’s State of the Union address will be all about Barack Obama. As usual, but he’s not trying to hide it for once.

SOTU: The Empty Chair Leaving an Empty Chair
President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union speech on Tuesday, January 12th. Both Republican and Democratic presidents usually invite guests to attend the SOTU to honor service, sacrifice, or to make a political point. In an effort to establish some sort of legacy, President Obama will leave an empty seat for victims of gun violence. I know what you’re thinking. The Empty | Read More »
State Department Refuses to Deny They Sold Hellfire Missile to Cuba (VIDEO)
On Friday, news broke that an American Hellfire missile somehow ended up in Cuba in mid-2014 after it failed to return from a NATO exercise in Europe that year. Unsurprisingly, the island country has refused to give it up, and that fact evidently did not stop the Obama administration from going forward with its push to normalize relations with the country. There have been a | Read More »
How Did an American Hellfire Missile End Up in Cuba?
In early 2014, an inert Hellfire missile was shipped to Europe for a NATO exercise. It was scheduled to return to the United States sometime before June of that year, but it never did. Instead, for whatever reasons, it surfaced in Cuba, and if anyone in the United States government knows, they sure aren’t saying why. This is, as the Delvin Barrett and Gordon Lubold explain | Read More »
4 Takeaways from Obama’s “Guns In America” Town Hall
Obama’s attempt to save the United States from gun violence began with crocodile tears on Tuesday, and continued with a CNN town hall Thursday night. He may not cry as much as Boehner did, but he certainly tries his hand at theatrics. It’s no surprise CNN would join the “we hate gun violence” bandwagon. A #StopGunViolence hashtag floated around the bowels of the internet this | Read More »
Is Donald Trump a Natural Born Citizen?
In his desperate attempts to stave off Ted Cruz’s surge, Donald Trump has resorted to his old tricks of questioning his opponents’ citizenship. It’s what he built his aborted 2012 campaign for the Presidency on, and it’s what he’s doing now. Take for example his recent comments to the Washington Post: “Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate | Read More »
Watch As the ATF Is Trolled On Their Own Facebook Page
Yesterday, the ATF was updating its Facebook page with new policy guidance. As totalitarians often learn, communicating with the proletariat when they can communicate back is… well… problematic.
