To The Families Of James Foley And Steven Sotloff, I’m Sorry
I wish to convey my most heart-felt sympathies to the families of American journalist James Foley and Steven Sotloff, both of whom have been murdered at the hands of a genocidal Islamic barbarian horde known as ISIS. To James’ and Steve’s parents, children, spouses, friends and extended family I want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry that even after a year of daily intelligence briefings | Read More »
Thank you, Andrew Breitbart
I never got a chance to meet Andrew Breitbart. About the time I came out of my child-induced isolation, he had passed away. From what I know, I would have liked him immensely and I think he would have liked me.

Ken and Angela Paxton: A Family for Educational Choice
In Texas, Ken Paxton is running for attorney general with the slogan “Proven Conservative Courage.” More than a politician, though, Paxton understands that Texas is a keystone for freedom in the United States, and that the 10th Amendment is a fundamental part of that freedom. Last month, he spoke at the Red State Gathering (you can watch the full speech here), and spoke frankly about | Read More »
President Obama Says “We Don’t Have a Strategy” on ISIS, Except He Does
“We don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with ISIS jihadists.
That’s what President Obama announced to the world, including the terrorist army inflicting genocide on Christians in Iraq and Syria.
But the reality is President Obama does have a strategy. He’s had one from the day he took office. Apologize for America, appease the radical Muslim world, and ignore the threat posed by jihad.

The “Consider This Podcast”: Hamas v Israel, and Gays in America
From episode 84 of the Consider This Podcast; conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. The state of the conflict between Hamas and Israel was well-described over half a century ago, and it still rings true. Rather than being simplistic descriptions of what might be a complex problem, I think that it’s tough to deny the truth of those sayings. It’s worth considering. The US now | Read More »
A Hobbit’s brush with Death
“Well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past Age, full of its own comings and goings, scarcely aware of the existence of Hobbits, for which I am very thankful.”

Gandalf only said this in the movie version of Lord of the Rings, which for the purist like me, means he never said it at all. But the quote applies to me in the last five days as much as any Hobbit in the Shire. In my brush with Death, I found myself totally disconnected from the news cycle, not writing or reading anything. And the world went on, scarcely aware of my absence. And I am thankful of that.
Contradictory Choices in the Middle East [Part I]
Introduction and Historical Retrospective Western policymakers and media talking-heads like to believe that the answer to the wider Middle East’s problems lies in a single, coherent regional strategy. In other words, a sufficient balance of military force and support for the proper state players will yield lasting calm and neutralize emerging ideological threats. Not only does this view starkly contrast with the approach taken | Read More »
VIDEO: When Bureaucrats Determine Their Own Limits – There Are No Limits
As the great P.J. O’Rourke said: “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” We have to give the Feds some – the Constitution requires it. But in 1984 the Supreme Court threw wide open the doors to every liquor store and vehicle in the nation. Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. was a | Read More »

Are You Ready For Some Terrorism?
As the 13th anniversary of September 11th approaches, nearly every news cycle has alarming reports warning Americans that a domestic terrorist attack is on the horizon. But unlike the surprise attacks of September 11, 2001, or the April, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, it appears that the next round of terrorist attacks is expected. Expected? Stop right there and think about that concept. How the heck | Read More »
