Putin Signs Law to Shut Down “Undesirable” Organizations
I’ve spilled a good deal of digital ink here on RedState covering some of the worrying signs we’re seeing from Russia. The latest one is a law signed into effect by Vladimir Putin on Saturday that gives the Russian government the authority to shutter “undesirable” organizations. From an Associated Press report on the subject: President Vladimir Putin signed a bill into law Saturday giving prosecutors | Read More »
The Jacksonville Panic
Several consultants, Democrat and Republican, clued me in last year on a race that has sailed under the radar in the United States: the Jacksonville, FL mayoral race. Democrats and Republicans alike tell me that Barack Obama used Jacksonville as a testing ground for his campaign strategy and technology in helping Democrats take the city. Registered Democrats outnumber their Republican counterparts, but the city has | Read More »
Tech at Night: A summary of the patent fight
Let’s recap the patent situation, and why it’s so heated right now. Back before Republicans took the Senate, Reid and Obama made a deal with Boehner’s House to get the America Invents Act. It ended up being a huge gift to the lawyer lobby (at the time I warned that the American Bar Association was backing it for a reason, in a time of relatively | Read More »
Obama: that chlorine gas Syria is using, well I’m fine with it
On April 22, 1915, the German army launched an attack to reduce the Allied salient at Ypres, Belgium. After the preparatory bombardment died down, the Germans released chlorine gas from canisters (5730 90-lb canisters) they had moved to the frontline trenches. The gas, which is heavier than air, was propelled by the wind and seeped into trenches manned by French reservists and colonial troops. Panic | Read More »
Obama seeks to deter nuclear Iran with missile defense
Via CNN: President Barack Obama will re-engage with Gulf State allies at a summit next week on a proposal for a common ballistic missile defense system that could act as a deterrent to a potentially nuclear armed Iran, a U.S. official confirms to CNN on Wednesday. … The administration’s proposals for greater defense cooperation with Gulf State allies appear to be aimed at easing concerns | Read More »
Obama: abortion is birth control
T he DC City Council passed a law with the Orwellian name of “Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014″ (RHNDA). The bill seems sort of innocuous. I mean how often is anyone really fired because of their method of birth control? How does that conversation come up in a work place? For the purposes of this section, the term “reproductive health decisions” includes a | Read More »
Conservatives Must Oppose Bob Corker’s Capitulation
The video above explains why President Obama’s deal with Iran is so bad. Made worse is Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46%‘s effort to ratify the deal through a perversion of the constitutional process. Bob Corker is a little man who chairs the impotent Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The two traits have conspired to require him to feel relevant and stretch his little | Read More »
John Kerry Apparently Wishes we had a Leader like Iran’s Dictator
John Kerry has a disturbing habit of kissing up to foreign despots, particularly the Middle Eastern variety. Back in 2011, when the Syrian civil war was still just mass demonstrations, he went on record praising Basham al-Assad. Then, there was the time earlier this year he extended an over the top message of condolences to the Iranian Supreme Leader Hassan Rouhani over the loss of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s Inter-nyet policy
So last week Comcast gave up on a free market deal under extreme government pressure. It’s the ongoing power grab by the Obama administration that Mike Wendy calls the Inter-nyet policy. Planned economy, one industry at a time.
If Only President Obama Weren’t Black
“If only President Obama weren’t black, maybe he would realize that people don’t dislike him because he is black, they dislike him because he is a self-absorbed ass.”Over the weekend, most of the worst people in the world gathered together in Washington, D.C. as a circle of jerks to sing each other’s praises. Sadly, there was no Samson to tear down the columns and collapse | Read More »

Obama: Welcome to the fourth quarter of my presidency
Last night was the White House Correspondents Dinner. This is incestuous rub-fest where political figures and important media personalities mingle and laugh about how stupid the American people are. While Obama was yucking it up, a race riot was in progress outside the MLB park, Camden Yards, in Baltimore. With its ever perfect sense of timing this is the tweet the White House sent out | Read More »
Remember that Time Hillary Hit Obama on Backroom Nuclear Donor Deals?
Over the past couple of days, we here at RedState have talked quite a bit about Hillary Clinton’s backroom deals with nuclear industry bigwigs that have essentially handed our country’s uranium supplies over to Russia. However, the story doesn’t end with the Clintons’ own backroom dealing and subsequent lying about it. Now, we can add “blatant hypocrisy” to the list. The Washington Free Beacon has | Read More »
John Kerry Gets To Be Barack Obama’s Fall Guy on Iran
Your Credibility When They Toss You Under The Bus. I have good news and bad news for Secretary of State John F. Kerry. The good news is that he holds an illustrious position and is in the direct line to be POTUS in the event of a major disaster*. The bad news is that he just received an addendum to his | Read More »
Obama to Americans in Yemen: You’re on Your Own
As we all should know by now, the official government of Yemen fell earlier this year. Among those caught in the chaos that has ensued are a number of American citizens living in the country. The United States has evacuated its troops stationed at an air base in the country, but the fate of those not working for our government are locked in limbo. Writing | Read More »
