Alarm Bells from Paris – is anyone listening?
With the recent ISIS attack in Paris, and now reports coming through the wires that ISIS claims the attacks are “first of a storm”, one has to wonder if collectively, the world and its leaders have learned anything. After the Charlie Hebdo attacks, we had hashtags and unity marches through the streets of Paris, good for optics, but not much else. Now ten months later, Paris is | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s FBI Problem and the FBI’s Obama Problem
In the last half of the 60 Minutes interview with the President last Sunday, Steve Kroft raised the subject of Hillary Clinton’s email problem with the President: Steve Kroft: Do you think it posed a national security problem? President Barack Obama: I don’t think it posed a national security problem. I think that it was a mistake that she has acknowledged and– you know, as | Read More »
Obama and Clinton go Golfing …. Why Now?
Both President Barack Obama and former President Clinton are vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. So. Nothing new there. Both like to golf. Same, nothing new there. MSNBC reports that apparently for the second time in history, the two “ran into each other” on the golf course on Saturday. H’mmm. Something there? It depends on what the meaning of the word there is. I accept that there | Read More »
Osama bin Laden is dead ….. who knew?
The Hill is carrying a story about a book excerpt published in the London Review of Books this past Sunday from author Seymour Hersh. The book, entitled, The Killing of Osama bin Laden, reportedly details that President Obama deceived (a.k.a. lied to) the American people regarding the narrative as to how the bin Laden raid was handled. As our President is always the smartest man | Read More »
Bill O’Reilly, I think you’d be surprised what Jesus would do
Hey Bill, been watching you for years. Sometimes I agree with your “Talking Points” memo and sometimes, like now, I think you’ve got it wrong. I mean, really wrong. Your Talking Points memo of May 7, “How Emotion can Damage America” was not a total washout. Any individual, with a shred of humanity, is in favor of defeating ISIS and the jihad. However, both you | Read More »
Free speech – fast becoming an oxymoron
When I was a little girl growing up and I would run home crying to mother, because a classmate called me names, my mother would say, “stick and stones my break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Later in my teens, when I was busy sassing mom and dad, I’d tell them “free speech.” In today’s society, neither applies anymore, at least | Read More »
Carly and Ben announce and change the conversation
This morning, Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard and former Senate candidate for California announced her run for the Presidency. Also announcing, Dr. Ben Carson, retired pediatric neurosurgeon who burst upon the political scene in 2013 at the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington. Good for them! Now that the rounds of applause, good wishes and pats on the back have concluded, can either | Read More »
Remember the “reset button” – Russian hackers sure do, they’re using it
So it’s worse than previously believed and relayed to the American public. Ha! Believed by whom. Today’s New York Times, amid other media, published a story that Russian hackers read White House unclassified emails, and that the Administration’s senior officials were so flummoxed, that for several weeks, they met on a daily basis rather than use any electronic media. The hackers gained entrance to the | Read More »
About those Iran sanctions, Mr. President
One of the major selling points about the Iranian nuclear framework agreement being touted by the President is that should, repeat should, the Iranians cheat on the agreement, sanctions could be reinstated against them. The reinstatement, of course, is dependent upon verification that they’re cheating, and then brought before the UN Security Council for multiple layers and years of adjudication. Given the news today, that | Read More »
Barack re-elects Bibi and Petulance Trumps Statesmanship
It’s times like these when I question if we have a child in the White House or a world leader. Contrary to polls right up until the election results were in, it was thought, most certainly by the occupants of the White House, that Israel’s Labor Party and candidate, Isaac Herzog, would succeed in ousting Benjamin Netanyahu from the Prime Minister slot. After all, Obama | Read More »
