Report: Obama’s Free College Idea Wastes Billions on Students who won’t Get Degrees
Over the past year, President Obama has been pushing a proposal that would guarantee two free years of community college, at least as far as tuition and fees are concerned, for students across the country. There are a lot of good reasons to question his plan, but a report from the American Action Forum makes it plain how poorly thought out the proposal is. From The Washington | Read More »

Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are at a high after the former executed 47 prisoners, including a prominent Shiite cleric. Saudi Arabia announced the executions, which included al Qaeda militants and at least four Shiite dissidents.

Obama Administration Misled Congress on Bergdahl Deal
We knew about Bowe Bergdahl’s plight, and we knew the U.S. policy of not negotiating with terrorists. It was an unfortunate plight for Bergdahl, but it was unclear how the U.S. would possibly get him back. Then, suddenly, he was here, and there was a press conference announcing his safe return. That’s when we found out the price of getting him back: We traded prisoners | Read More »
Obama in Paris: Mass Shootings Just Don’t Happen In Other Countries
In Paris on Tuesday, President Obama had a press conference as part of the Paris global warming convention, when he said something so monumentally insensitive that, for once, I actually agree with the idea that Obama should be apologizing on our behalf abroad. For electing him. Obama was talking about the heinous murders that took place last week in Colorado Springs, and he made the | Read More »
Being Thankful in Barack Obama’s America
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you’re having a blessed day with friends and family, spending time being as American as it gets: spending time with loved ones, remembering tradition, thinking about the settling of our great country, eating way too much and blaming your sudden exhaustion on a chemical found in turkey meat, and watching football. We do have plenty to be outraged about, to be | Read More »
Is the Iran Deal Even Real?
This is a serious question: Is the Iran Deal even a real thing? I mean, it had a hashtag, it had a Twitter account, criticizing it is a clear violation of the Logan Act, and we were told it is very tough on Iran and will prevent them from obtaining a nuclear weapon. It’s got to be legitimate, right? Well, the State Department says it’s | Read More »
The Real Intelligence Manipulation Scandal
There is a lot of talk about how there is this massive scandal on the intelligence reports on ISIS being manipulated in order to make the JV team look like a JV team. The fact that this is happening is a major problem in the U.S. intelligence community is atrocious and shows just how much government can be twisted into nothing more than a massive | Read More »
Ind. Republicans Take Page from Obama Higher Ed Playbook
Ahead of their short legislative session starting in January, some top Republican lawmakers in Indiana are floating a plan to make college free for some Hoosier students. Faced with the need to recruit teachers for Indiana public schools, Speaker Brian Bosma (R) is proposing that the state pay for 100% of college tuition if students choose to become teachers for at least five years after | Read More »
The War Against Women Exists, But the Left is Waging It
As frustrating as it is, gender is a card often played by those wanting to get ahead, by those seeking to shame, and all too often, by those seeking to drive a wedge. Because claims of “you’re a sexist!” are easily thrown and do much damage in the eyes of some, they are a regularly used weapon in the political sphere. But while Liberals claim | Read More »
The Blatant Moral Injustice of Bowe Bergdahl vs. Sergeant Martland
It’s a moral contradiction like no other.
Bowe Bergdahl stands accused of deserting his post to cavort with the enemy. Sergeant Charles Martland stands accused of forcefully removing a child rapist from a U.S. military base in order to defend a child.
Bergdahl was treated as a hero by the Obama Administration. Sergeant Martland – a decorated Green Beret – may be kicked out of the military.

Obama Hates Oil and Democrats
…Well, that’s largely speculation, but that speculation is based almost entirely on his compulsion to screw them over in post-Obama elections. Take, for example, this declaration: The Obama administration has formally threatened a veto on a House bill that would lift the federal ban on crude oil exports. In a statement of administration policy, the Office of Management and Budget said that “legislation to remove | Read More »
Obama Administration Not Prepared to Face Its Own Words
There is very little to disagree with in this New York Post editorial. Associated Press reporter Matt Lee caught deputy State spokesman Mark Toner by surprise at a briefing this week. Lee asked about Saturday’sUS bombing of a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, that left 22 patients and staff dead. The administration has called the attack a tragic mistake. But Lee recalled Israel’s August 2014 shelling | Read More »
There is Evil, but we no longer know what it looks like
Yesterday, President Barack Obama called for the politicization of the Oregon tragedy. We should absolutely politicize these tragedies, he argues, in order to affect real, meaningful change in society. And thus goes the typical logic of the extreme liberal, who truly believes society’s ills can be legislated away. But evil cannot simply be wished away with some sort of legalspeak enchantment wild voodoo lawyers recite around | 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.

Federal Judge Drops the Hammer on Obama Administration Immigration Defiance
When a federal judge starts using words like “contempt of Court” about senior Obama Administration officials, it gets real serious, real fast.
A federal judge in the case against President Obama’s illegal Executive action on immigration has leveled some serious accusations against not only the Administration and its DOJ attorneys but senior level officials for “violating” a federal court order.
The court has ordered a “show cause” hearing for August 19th at which “Each individual Defendant,” not just their DOJ attorneys, “must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court.”
Here’s what happened.
