President Obama’s 9/10 Strategy in a 9/11 World
The sad irony of President Obama’s September 10th address to the nation on ISIS is that he laid out a 9/10 strategy in a 9/11 world.
Thirteen years ago, we awoke on 9/11 and the world had changed. We awoke to the reality of radical Islamic jihad and its commitment to destroy America. Now we face an even greater jihadist threat. Have we forgotten so quickly as a nation?
President Obama unabashedly asserted that ISIS isn’t Islamic. Yet it’s Islamic to its core, establishing a caliphate – an Islamic State – across large swaths of Iraq and Syria.

Easy guide to Obama and the War Powers Resolution
When Obama gave his speech on September 10, promising to “degrade and destroy” ISIS, it was interesting for what it said and didn’t say. Obama laid out a four part strategy for defeating ISIS. The most notable thing it didn’t say was that Obama intended to ask Congress for authority to wage a war against ISIS that would, at a minimum, encompass two countries, one of | Read More »
Media Bias (Again) Shines Through in Coverage of Joe Biden’s Anti-Semitic Slur
In case you missed it (and you probably did, unless you are a very close follower of the news), Joe Biden was forced to apologize today for using the anti-Semitic slur “Shylock” to describe what he considered to be shady bankers. Look, Joe Biden is stupid and says stupid things and many of those stupid things are racially insensitive. Jewish people have just joined a | Read More »
Lobbyist advises GOP to spend big and think small
GOP estabishment politics is the epitome of a “green” industry. Nothing is ever thrown away. Baby poo is repackaged as butterscotch and sold to unsuspecting voters. Pathetic losers resurface time and again making the same mistakes over and over and collecting checks in the process. A prime example of this is a guy like John Feehery. Feehery used to work for go-along-get-along icon Bob Michel | Read More »
Mary Landrieu Welcomes Hispanics to the New Democrat Plantation
For years the Democrats have operated their party like a plantation, where black voters in particular are expected to be present but not ever actually given anything in return. Now they appear ready to try the same trick with pro-immigration reform Hispanics, in the service of saving Mary Landrieu’s Senate career. As I am sure you know, President Obama had planned to implement a sweeping | Read More »
Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats
Conventional wisdom about this midterm election is that while Democrats are defending difficult turf in the Senate and face possible substantial losses, the redistricting after the 2010 census eliminated significant numbers of meaningfully competitive House seats, which should prevent an equivalent wave from forming in the House. The way the generic Congressional vote polls are starting to look, the Democrats better hope that this is | Read More »
Staci Appel (D CAND, IA-03): against taking away terrorist traitors’ passports!
From comments to this post comes a remarkably tin-eared comment by Democratic candidate Staci Appel on whether Americans who join terror groups should be allowed to keep their passports. I sincerely doubt that anybody here will be surprised to hear that Ms. Appel has a problem with taking away those passports: I would not be urging taking away their passports… I think we need to make sure | Read More »
Bill Bennett paid to pimp for Common Core
Last week Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett appeared on the op-ed page of the Wall Street Journal called The Conservative Case for Common Core. That’s the fundamental idea behind a core curriculum: preserving and emphasizing what’s essential, in fields like literature and math, to a worthwhile education. It is also, by the way, a conservative idea. In the op-ed, Bennett dangles a bewildering | Read More »
Obama uses war on ISIS to overthrow Syria’s Assad
One of the things that has intrigued me about the Obama administration’s alleged strategy to combat ISIS is the degree to which it focuses on Syria. Not only are airstrikes within Syria contemplated but another attempt will be made by the administration to arm the Syrian opposition forces. To me this seems counterintuitive. Not only is he heartland of ISIS in Iraq but expanding our | Read More »
No, the NFL Is Not a Hotbed of Wife and Child Beaters
Let me begin with two bits of information: If I made the rules, Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson would be out of the NFL and probably both of them would be doing some time for assault and child abuse. I really don’t care about NFL football. My sports seasons are MLB and NHL. I watch the NFL for about 2 weeks before hockey starts. Remember, | Read More »
Many Insurance Providers are Paying for Abortions under Obamacare
One of the biggest obstacles to the passage of Obamacare was the question of whether it would officially fund abortion. This issue was only resolved, in a manner of speaking, when President Obama signed an executive order barring federal funds from being used to fund abortion, but many of us on the Right knew this would not be the end of it. After all, Barack | Read More »
Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing
Via Caleb Howe comes this astonishing clip of MSNBC host Alex Wagner showing some justified concern about how eugenics is still practiced even today. Amazingly, however, she seems to believe that the most important means through which eugenics is practiced today is actually important to the prevention of eugenics. On MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner on Monday, the host unleashed a tirade at Republicans over their supposed | Read More »
ISIS is What Islam Is Getting Paid To Become
Image Credit: UK Daily Mail The Somali and Algerian immigrants, the German and American converts, the black burkas and dyed beards, headed into the dying summer to kill Christians and Kurds, Turkmen and Shiites, to behead babies and crucify critics, don’t seem like monsters. Sultan Knish Something really great happened to me over the weekend. I dutifully attended church and heard Joel Osteen denounced as | Read More »
Bill Clinton Agrees With Palestinian Activist: Netanyahu Is ‘Not The Guy’
On Sunday, Bill and Hillary Clinton were Iowa attending the final Tom Harkin Steak Fry event, and Bill was repeatedly pinned down in conversation by folks in attendance. During one such encounter, Clinton got into a discussion with a pro-Palestinian activist who managed to elicit a surprising, or not so surprising, comment from the former President. Activist: If we don’t force [Netanyahu] to make peace, | Read More »
