Obama cries ‘no más’ in Syria
Over the week end I posted on what I see to be the real Russian strategy in Syria: use highly provocative actions and statements to create a narrative that Russia is the dominant power and America is on the decline. This strategy is working because Obama apparently lives in a universe where everyone is working together to achieve what is good rather than the universe | Read More »
Vladimir Putin Does In Syria What The US Electorate Should Have Done In 2012
Barack Obama is surprised that Vladimir Putin isn’t playing nicely in Syria. He is amazed that Russia has intervened on behalf of the butchers and thugs that tenuously cling to power in Damascus. He thinks we should fight ISIS with longer words and more complex syllogisms. Vladimir Putin thinks Barack Obama needs to take off his skirt or leave the battlefield to men. I’m pretty | Read More »
Russia, ISIS the Natural Consequences of President Obama’s Disastrous Foreign Policy
Russia’s power play in the Middle East, under the guise of targeting ISIS, is disastrous, dangerous, and deadly.
First, Russia’s aggression in Syria is on President Obama’s head. Second, elections have consequences, and we are only just now beginning to experience those disastrous consequences. Vladimir Putin’s insatiable quest for world power has run roughshod over President Obama’s intractable weakness.

Barack Obama Shoots Messengers Instead of Members of ISIS
MI in The Era of Obama. Intelligence needs to be free of censorship in order to be, well, intelligent. In order to be distinguishable from propaganda, it has to report results impartially. Bad news cannot be tossed in the garbage. It doesn’t necessarily have to be broadcast to the general public through a bullhorn, but it can’t be deliberately hidden from | Read More »
Britain’s Daily Mail Shows How Easy it is to Obtain Fraudulent Syrian Documents
I’ve been on record here before about how the United States should be more proactive in granting asylum to Middle Eastern refugees, but the present situation in Europe and the Middle East is problematic for more than just the gigantic scope of the crisis. David Cameron has promised that Britain will take in up to 20,000 refugees, but a Daily Mail article from Tuesday reports that | Read More »

New York Times confirms The Daily Beast’s ISIS/intelligence scoop.
BOOM goes the dynamite: “A group of intelligence analysts have provided investigators with documents they say show that senior military officers manipulated the conclusions of reports on the war against the Islamic State, according to several government officials, as lawmakers from both parties voiced growing anger that they may have received a distorted picture about the military campaign’s progress.” Government inspectors specifically looking at CENTCOM (United | Read More »
Is the White House behind the manipulation of ISIS reporting?
The Obama administration continues to corrupt and befoul everything it touches. A few days ago it was reported that the US intelligence apparatus support US Central Command, the war fighting joint command that is charged with “defeating and degrading” ISIS, was in a state of near mutiny. As it turned out, the only thing being “degraded” was the integrity of the senior leadership of that | Read More »
9-12, The Patriot Act and Islamic Terrorism
Same As It Ever Was, Same As It Ever Was,…. The United States Government needs to do one of two things in regards to the Post 9-11 existential threat of anti-western terrorism and the Orwell State we have erected to combat it. We can go Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% or we can go Genghis Kahn. Instead, as | Read More »

Is the Intelligence Community whitewashing ISIS reports?
If this pans out… well, good lord. More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact | Read More »
Be Wary of the Refugee Crisis
I write this with the full knowledge that the bleeding hearts of the world will frown upon it, but it is an alternative side of the refugee crisis in Syria that we must be wary of. It is an absolutely terrible crisis that we need to pray for, and we do need to see that these people who have fled their homes because of the devastating | Read More »

Chris Cuomo: Rape isn’t the problem, bad stereotypes about ISIS are the problem
We’ve had fun with Chris Cuomo before here at RedState and his Twitter feed is a never ending source of fun. The crap he comes up with is so bizarre that even the left knows he’s a moron. He is also an inveterate defender of radical Islam. The previous link contains a Chris Cuomo tweet, since deleted, in which he insists that the attack on | Read More »

That Time Roosevelt Out Debated Hitler
“Secular leftism does not sell well when contrasted with an ideology that promises an afterlife filled with virgins and a present filled with heroic struggle against a Great Satan sissy in mom jeans.”History remembers how we won World War II. Franklin Roosevelt rolled his wheelchair into Germany and debated Adolph Hitler. At the end of the debate, the Germans smacked themselves upside the head, recognized | Read More »
