Thank You, President Obama

Republicans have been kind of ridiculous recently. We were crazy to try and defund Obamacare when clearly, it was going to work in every way possible, and contributed to the government shutdown that lasted over two weeks. The time has come to move past all the rancor and partisanship, and it's time we showed some … Continue reading Thank You, President Obama

The KGB Chief Outsmarts the Chicago Community Organizer

"Gov. Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that Al-Qaeda is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al-Qaeda. You said Russia ... the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's … Continue reading The KGB Chief Outsmarts the Chicago Community Organizer

Historical Precedent for Failure

President Obama has inevitably seen both his popularity and reputation decline, as his inept, and badly bungled policies and initiatives create and exacerbate problems both foreign and domestic. It would be entirely reasonable for someone who takes a serious and critical look at current events to conclude the following: “The president lives in the world of make-believe where … Continue reading Historical Precedent for Failure

Remembering September 11, 2001

From Bill Bennett: On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists, mostly from Saudi Arabia, hijacked four commercial jetliners and turned them into flying bombs. Two of the hijacked planes slammed into the 110-story twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Americans watched their TV screens in horror as the two … Continue reading Remembering September 11, 2001

Blind-sided On the Road to Damascus

After campaigning against the "misguided" war in Iraq during his first run for the presidency in 2008, prematurely ending the war in Afghanistan, and involving itself in a muddled, inconclusive conflict in Libya, the Obama administration now seeks Congressional authorization to begin military operations on behalf of the Al Qaeda and Al-Nusra Front allied Syrian rebels against Bashar al-Assad. With no … Continue reading Blind-sided On the Road to Damascus

Tainting The Legacy

from the Washington Examiner: Sen. Tim Scott, R.-S.C., the only African American serving in the United States Senate, wasn't invited to the event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's march on Washington, though a host of Democratic luminaries spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. “Senator Scott was not invited to speak … Continue reading Tainting The Legacy

Enabling Amnesty

The US Senate voted 53 to 47 today to defeat an amendment by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, that would have required a controlled border for six months before any immigrant here illegally could take the first steps toward citizenship. It was a reasonable and well-reasoned amendment to the White House-backed immigration legislation crafted by the "Gang … Continue reading Enabling Amnesty

Chicago and Detroit Follow the Zimbabwe Path

I was speaking with a new friend recently. Suzanne is from Zimbabwe, a country she says is the most beautiful in the world, one where she grew up, spent most of her life (she's 54 now) and where most of her family lived, married, worked and died in their time. I can see the wistful expression on her face … Continue reading Chicago and Detroit Follow the Zimbabwe Path

In The Name of Jihad

Clarity and honesty are powerful forces. Today is the one-week anniversary of the terror attack in Boston, and it is important to remember that immediately following the terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, 2013, many liberal / leftist members of the commentariat took to the air angrily and slanderously blaming "right-wing conservatives". They … Continue reading In The Name of Jihad

Lying To Save His Skin

  Last night in the second of the three Presidential Debates, Gov. Mitt Romney made a tactical mistake. In the course of questioning, moderator Candy Crowley brought up the subject of the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 members of his staff. … Continue reading Lying To Save His Skin

The Arab Spring and The Winter of Our Discontent

We are approaching the one year anniversary of the beginning of the troubles. Since December 18, 2010, all across the Muslim world, popular uprisings have led to the downfall of longtime dictators and strong men, as groups labeled "the youth" or "the people" have filled public spaces with crowds demanding that "democratic principles" take hold, … Continue reading The Arab Spring and The Winter of Our Discontent
