Why Bowe Bergdahl Matters
Barack Obama traded five Taliban soldiers for Bowe Bergdahl. Despite State Department statements to the contrary, we know at least one of those Taliban headed back out to kill Americans. But the Bergdahl situation matters at a different level than that. It matters because the White House, when confronted by who Bergdahl once, sought to smear the people who pointed out he was a deserter | Read More »
Iran isn’t Providing Access or Information about its Nuke Sites
There are plenty of reasons to believe that Iran is not seriously interested in a deal on nuclear weapons. Ayatollah Khamenei’s recent reiteration of his call for “Death to America” ought to be evidence enough of that, but even if it was just some red meat for the domestic audience without larger implications, as the Obama administration says, we have ample evidence more directly related | Read More »
Barack Obama Lies With Rape Statistics
This does not imply 20% Rate of Incidence per 1000 women. Heather MacDonald makes us aware of an interesting mathematical claim being made by President Obama and his happy-go-lucky sidekick Scranton Joe. The most common statistic thrown out these days by President Obama, Vice President Biden, on down is that one in five women will be the victims of sexual assault | Read More »
Obama has a sad; accuses Israel of spying on Iran negotiations
The Obama administration wasn’t surprised to discover that the government of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hadn’t calmly told his people to pack their suitcases and board the trains for whatever camp Obama’s new allies, the Iranians, were preparing. Soon after the U.S. and other major powers entered negotiations last year to curtail Iran’s nuclear program, senior White House officials learned Israel was spying on | Read More »
Show Us Where Israel Touched You, Mr. President
I chuckled the other day on twitter when I saw Kevin Eder tweet, “Mr President, please show me on the doll where Israel touched you.” The President’s antagonism toward Israel, shared by many on the left, borders on the irrational. A nation surrounded by many larger nations all hell bent on its annihilation, Israel’s fight for existence is not like ours. In minutes, the nation | Read More »
At Iranian Nuke Talks, Toughest Stance is being Taken by…France?
Even though history supposedly began in 2009, I’m old enough to remember when the French were derided as cheese eating surrender monkeys. Now, under a socialist government no less, they are standing up for the free world where America won’t. The news from Lausanne, Switzerland, is that they are the ones expressing the most skepticism about the deal pushed by the Obama administration that will, | Read More »

Re Mandatory Voting: Just How Much Can They Make Us Care?
Let’s Make These Guys Vote! Can the government make me care? No. But they can darn sure make you act like it. How so, you may ask? America is a free country? Only because our current indebtedness vastly exceeds anything we could claim as equity. You are not free. That died when the Obamacare Individual Mandate was ruled constitutional by Chief | Read More »
Tech at Night: It’s time we restored rule of law to regulators like FTC
Previously at RedState we discussed how FTC is as out of control as FCC and we need a new breed of regulator to fix it. Well now it turns out FTC has the same transparency issues FCC has. FTC took secret testimony against Sysco in the US Foods situation. A Federal judge is now having to order them to release information. Unusual, except in the | Read More »
Israel’s Election and America’s Utterly Classless President
You Mad, Mr. President? The Jerusalem Post is the bearer of glad tidings. Benjamin Netanyahu has been solidly reelected to his position as Israeli Prime Minister. The Israeli elections took a dramatic turn in the early morning hours on Wednesday as official tallies from nearly all precincts indicate that Likud has opened up a significant lead over Zionist Union, a far | Read More »
Barack Obama spins gold into straw in Israel elections. Again.
The New York Sun is pretty blunt about this: “It may be too soon to say who won the election in Israel but it’s not too soon to say who lost — President Obama.” …and, let’s be honest, here. It was a remarkably silly thing for the President to try to get involved in. No, seriously, think about it for a moment. What was the upside for | Read More »
Battleground Israel Turns Out Like Battleground Texas
Team Obama poured amazing resources into Battleground Texas to help Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, win and to turn Texas blue. Arguably, the Obama team had so many resources directed at Texas that they weakened themselves elsewhere. But they had a tremendous media operation and their acolytes in the press wrote hagiographic story after hagiographic story on how awesome Battleground Texas was. The media even lumped | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s Internet regulation plan got everything wrong. Everything.
The Heritage Foundation is one of the most important components of the conservative movement. They’re a true Think Tank, bringing together many smart people to speak intelligently on many issues. And I agree with Jim DeMint’s predecessor at Heritage, Ed Fuelner, when he says Net Neutrality “needs to be eradicated, not embraced.
Do Not Descend Into That
One of the bits of guilt I carry around over running RedState is that I am often given credit for the great work of others. Leon Wolf, not me, wrote this tremendous piece on the Ferguson Police Department. Though I did not write it, I agree with it and hope you will read it. In the process of some giving me credit, however, some too | Read More »
Obama to Senate: You are irrelevant on Iran
Not content with unleashing a virtual lynch mob on Senator Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) 90% for citing the United States Constitution, now White House chief of staff Dennis McDonough has sent a letter to Foreign Relations chairman, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 50%, warning him not to proceed with a bill he has introduced that ::shock :: gasp would require | Read More »
