Hillary’s Operation Fast and Furious: al Qaeda edition
Most everyone is familiar with the infamous Operation Fast and Furious wherein the boneheaded Obama Justice Department decided along with the equally boneheaded Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives that letting people buy weapons illegally and transfer them to Mexican narco-cartels was just a jim-dandy way of generating public outrage at gun ownership. Now we’re seeing another phase of this come to light. The | Read More »
When It Is Over
In October of 2005, I was one of the first to experience the W, T, and F to come October 3rd. Here at RedState, I had legitimately been breaking news about George W. Bush’s Supreme Court appointments. First came John Roberts. Then came, not Samuel Alito, but Harriet Miers. I had a few good sources inside and outside the White House who had been feeding | Read More »
Obama shows usual sense of class at D-Day ceremonies
If you ever had any doubt we are now being ruled by a classless yobocracy you can stop. Barack Obama couldn’t attend the D-Day ceremonies with something like a sense of dignity. Nope. He has to smack away on a cud of chewing gum (I hope) like he was trying out for the cast of Jersey Shore and then spit it into his hand for | Read More »
Obama declined to trade cash for Bergdahl
Just about every hour a new revelation is made about the facts and circumstances of the terrorist-leader-for-deserter swap engineered by our commander in chief. We’ve known for a while that Barack Obama had agitated for the release of these five particular prisoners since 2011, I don’t know if they are distant relatives or what. Now FoxNews is reporting that that there were active negotiations for | Read More »
Barack Obama leaves three Americans behind in Afghanistan
Pathological liars. We’ve all met them. The kind where you ask them what they had for breakfast and they’ll tell you bacon and eggs when you were there when they ate that bowl of Cheerios. The type of guy who lies for no reason other than to stay in practice. Now we have one in the White House. And yesterday he was in full roar: | Read More »
Foot Soldiers in the Real War on Women
Five more foot soldiers are headed back to the front lines of the real war on women thanks to President Obama. Abdul Haq Wasiq was a deputy minister of intelligence for the Taliban and helped Al Qaeda. He has been accused of murder and torture. Mullah Norullah Noori was a military commander for the Taliban. He fought American forces in Afghanistan and, according to Fox | Read More »
Taliban 5 for Bergdahl may be Obama’s brilliant chess move
President Obama’s unilateral and dictatorial trade of the Taliban five for one US soldier who likely is a traitor was made with planning, forethought, and purpose, and might be the best chess move of his presidency—playing by his own rules.
We are unlikely to see a more comprehensive and effective use of Saul Ailinsky’s Rules for Radicals, played at the national level by a President. Obama’s memorized Ailinsky’s playbook and is running it page by page—he’s been rehearsing these last five years his whole life. I mean, here we are, conservatives, who live by our code of integrity, faith, and goodwill; we consider Obama as a rogue, and finally he’s playing his endgame where the roguishness is visible to all.

President Admits He’ll Break the Law if Threatened
White House officials are admitting the President can be bullied and threatened into breaking American law. BREAKING: Officials: Congress not told of swap because Taliban threatened to kill Bergdahl if it leaked .— The Associated Press (@AP) June 5, 2014 Perhaps we should not elect men who wear mom jeans. This is pretty staggering. The Taliban now say they want to take more high profile | Read More »
Why You Don’t Negotiate With Terrorists 101
Ronald Reagan refused to negotiate with terrorists. Heck, most American Presidents have refused to negotiate with terrorists. Maybe the President needs to watch “The Wind and the Lion”. In any event, the Taliban feels emboldened to engage in more high profile kidnappings now. Yes, they’ve talked to Time. A Taliban commander close to the negotiations over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told | Read More »
Obama Administration Official, Brandon Friedman, Calls Soldiers ‘Psychopaths’
Brandon Friedman is a former liberal activist and disillusioned veteran. After working hard and relatively unsuccessfully to get soldiers to vote for Barack Obama, he got a job inside the administration. He now works for the Department of Housing and Urban Development as the Secretary for Public Affairs. Friedman has taken to twitter to call the soldiers who served with Bergdahl “psychopaths” for daring to | Read More »
Fifty Ways to Leave Obama
I don’t often get nostalgic, but I have more than a suspicion that we’re being led by the nose into a “new normal”, like a frog being slowly boiled, we acclimate to our environment. Taking a sniff of freshly squeezed garbage juice leaking from metal cans on a hot sidewalk is a good way to break the spell. An equally retch-inducing way is to review all the reasons we have for getting rid of Barack Obama.
This man deserves to be impeached more than any president, more than Andrew Johnson (who didn’t deserve it), Bill Clinton (who did), or Richard Nixon.
Have a nice, deep inhale of the last five years of garbage juice concentrate.

Not All Soldiers Are Equal
The left’s contention is that conservatives would prefer if we left an American soldier to rot in Afghanistan. No one is arguing that, that I know of. What we are arguing is that the President should not have traded five members of the Taliban for one American soldier who, it appears, left base without permission in search of the Taliban. Even Hillary Clinton, we now | Read More »
Why The White House Valued Bowe Bergdahl
Will He Become The Next Anti-Military Rock Star of The Left? A lot of wonderful people love their country and hate the military. – President William Jefferson Clinton In yet another effort to point people away from negative news, the Obama White House has hastily choreographed the heroic release of Bowe Bergdahl from the vile clutches of the Taliban. It backfired | Read More »
Obama dumbfounded that country is not euphoric over Bergdahl’s release
From the very beginning, the Obama administration’s scheme to gain the release of Bowe Bergdahl had more to do with electoral politics than it had to do with any humanitarian impulses on the part of Obama and his henchmen. Two years ago Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings writing in America’s Last Prisoner of War noted that political calculations were first and foremost in the mind | Read More »
The Left’s tortured logic: VA scandal proves we need 4 more years of Obama
Brian Joyce has jumped the shark by publishing this disgrace that even the Huffington Post should have more dignity than to publish. His argument? That making Americans finally care about the cascading debacles that have marked Obama’s presidency is a good thing.
