Why Islamic terror in Mali bodes very ill for Europe
Overnight, Islamic terrorists took 170 hostages at a hotel in Mali. Why would Islamic terrorists take hostages in Mali? Most Americans don’t even know what continent Mali is on (Africa), or where it is in Africa (I admit, I had to look on a map). What’s special about Mali? Turns out, quite a bit. Mali is former French colony, now an Islamic state. It’s a | Read More »
Obama just declared a billion Muslims to be subhuman
I thought President Obama had lost the ability to shock me after seven years in office, but I was wrong. Worse than liberal naiveté, Obama has tapped into the kind of mindset that produces vicious, cruel, and dehumanizing societies who commit the worst atrocities in history. The president’s remarks have been consistent in not condemning anything ISIS does as representative of Islam as a whole—to | Read More »
Paris, jihad and war: Can we get serious?
Can we get serious? Because our enemies are dead serious. I grieve for Paris, and for the families who lost loved ones. I grieve for those who are frightened. The two largest terror attacks against civilians in the West in this century both took place in cities boasting a Statue of Liberty. I don’t think that was missed by the Islamic jihadists who perpetrated the | Read More »
Where’s Obama when Mizzou turns into the Jacobins meet ‘Lord of the Flies’?
This sad moment in history has been brewing for at least two decades, and now we’ve arrived. On campus, it’s the Jacobins meet “Lord of the Flies.” Now that it’s been proven even to the most jaded liberals (writing on a Fox Sports blog, mind you) that the overthrow of Mizzou was based on lies and tribal hysteria, the country can watch in muted horror at what happens | Read More »
Do Thank a Veteran Today
Every Saturday, rain or shine, our home becomes the target of a loud and violent assault. Whether we are indoors or out in the yard, we can count on the noisy arrival of one or more UH-1Y “Yankee Hueys” of the 4th Marine Aircraft Wing, MAG-49 DET A, based at Robins AFB. The Marines fondly say “if it ain’t rainin’, we ain’t trainin’,” and | Read More »
And then there were 4: the pundits are right, it’s Cruz and Rubio
Mike Huckabee tweeted “We are months away from actual votes being cast and neither the pundits nor the press will decide this election, the people will.” This after he was unceremoniously dumped from the main 9pm stage in the Fox Business News debate to be held Nov. 10 in Milwaukee. I like Huckabee. I’ve met him a couple of times, and found him to be | Read More »
The hypocrites at The New York Times are terrible socialists
Socialism is defined as a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. The goal of socialism is to engineer outcomes. The New York Times, as the archetype of a liberal organization, advocates socialism in every possible way, except when it’s with their money or | Read More »
A brokered GOP convention is a real possibility, so why drop out?
Ever-astute David French over at National Review has called for the thinning the GOP herd. Given that there’s an “undercard” for each debate, where arguably the smartest person in the room (Gov. Bobby Jindal) languishes while Gov. John Kasich gets to strut like a Columbus peacock in full plumage, he may be right. Yes, I understand ambition. I also understand hope – especially when filtered | Read More »
Ryan Skeen: Where was grace in another teen murder?
Two lives ruined: one dead, one alive but destroyed. Two families inextricably linked in horror and pain. Too close for comfort in my tiny, safe, suburban bubble. In Warner Robins, Georgia, where I’ve lived for 23 years, a 13-year-old boy shot a 16-year-old in the neck. After a desperate struggle to save his life, Ryan Skeen was taken off life support last Wednesday and, at | Read More »
RNC’s debate ‘GreenGate': they’re on to something; ‘fix the glitch’
The RNC has finally found a good use of polling results in arranging debates: “green room” allocations. In what will undoubtedly be dubbed “GreenGate,” ’s campaign threw a hissy fit over their facilities versus the other, higher-polling candidates. Round 2: guess who is @CarlyFiorina and @RandPaul … Hint: someone has a jacuzzi #thanksRNC pic.twitter.com/WB8ZOEXiG6 — Chris LaCivita (@LaCivitaC) October 27, 2015 Politico broke the | Read More »
