Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen. -George Orwell

National Review's Jim Geraghty and Radio America's Greg Corombos discuss current events. Today topics: Fellow Dems call for Oregon governor Kitzhaber to resign, Obama does a BuzzFeed video to pitch ObamaCare, and Justice Ginsberg admits she was tipsy at the State of the Union.

While Obama Played With His Selfie Stick...
It was confirmed this week that ISIS killed yet another American hostage, Kayla Mueller. And on the day we learned of her death, our commander in chief was taking selfies for this Buzzfeed video. Questions remain over how long the White House knew where ISIS hostages were being held before acting. And while the ranks of foreign fighters joining ISIS swell, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted Wednesday that Obama's refusal to send more ground troops to fight the extremists is prolonging the war, which the president has now officially asked Congress to rubber stamp. House Homeland Security Committee Chair Michael McCaul slammed the proposal, however, saying that he'd rather have "no AUMF than the AUMF that he's proposed."
Meanwhile, in Yemen, U.S. Marines were ordered this week to destroy their weapons and the U.S. Embassy was evacuated over safety and security concerns. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki says we can trust the rebels to respect the evacuated embassy until we return, but in an interview with Megyn Kelly, the host pointed out that the Houthis have already posted signs that read "Death to America" at checkpoints. Perhaps the new secretary of Defense, who was confirmed 93-5, can talk some sense into this administration. Although considering they believe climate change is a greater threat to national security than terrorism and that the attack on the Kosher deli in France was random, that's probably wishful thinking...
