President Trump has a big challenge ahead not only making a course correction in Afghanistan but to convince a war-weary nation to agree with that action.
U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) explained her support of S.165, the Detaining Terrorists to Protect America Act of 2015 that restricts the transfer of detainees.
Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King (R-IA) released the following statement to honor the men and women who have given their lives for our county, and to encourage 5th District Iowans to take time this Memorial Day to pay respects to those brave service men and women to whom we owe our freedom. “May this Memorial […]

I had the opportunity to sit down yesterday at Smokey Row with Jim Gibbons who is one of the gazillion (okay, seven) Republicans running to knock off Congressman Leonard Boswell in Iowa’s Third Congressional District. Jim when he wrestled for Iowa State University (I’ll forgive the fact that he didn’t wrestle for my beloved Hawkeyes) […]
I missed watching the whole State of the Union speech live last night, and have been unable to comment until now. After watching and reading the transcript of the speech it seems, in my opinion, to be made up of recycled campaign stump speeches and addresses he has given while in office. There wasn’t much […]

President Obama goes after his favorite target. You’d hope it would be the terrorists, but nope… it’s the U.S. Intelligence community, they are to blame for the botched Christmas Day bombing. Reuters reports: "This was a screw up that could have been disastrous," the president said during a meeting in the White House situation room, […]

About time. After listening to the Obama administration criticize him for the last six months, President George W. Bush speaks out on the economic and terrorism policies of the Obama administration, but was guarded in criticizing President Obama directly. The Washington Times reports: On the economy: "I know it’s going to be the private sector […]
I’m a little late to the party here, but I did want to share some thoughts on President Obama’s June 4 address is Cairo, Egypt. The full text of his address can be found here.
