Blaming Romney, not terrorists, Obama fuels Middle East bloodshed
Like many Americans I spend time on September 11 contemplating the terror attacks. This year my contemplation didn’t end on the 11th. I have spent the entire week watching as riotous Muslim mobs, first in Egypt, then Libya, Tunisia, Yemen and Sudan attack U.S. embassies espousing hate for American values and belief. It got much worse. The hateful Muslim mobs multiplied throughout the Muslim world, | Read More »
‘We have more oil and natural gas than anyone thought possible even 5 years ago.’
The domestic oil and gas supply picture is better than it’s been in a generation, and it’s getting better every day. That’s not just my opinion; it’s also the conclusion of Adam Sieminski, chief administrator of the Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA), the government’s one-stop shop for all statistics related to our nation’s energy production and consumption. Sieminski was interviewed by Platt’s Energy | Read More »
Barack Obama: The Anti-Midas
In overseeing an economic policy that is just as effective as his foreign policy, Barack Obama has now presided over only the second downgrade of the US credit rating in modern history.

GM is Alive and the Volt is Dead.
One of the talking points that Obama’s reelection campaign has been pushing is that “Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive!” It’s fair to say that the success of GM is a pretty important linchpin to his reelection case. Something that Obama has not been running on is his failed attempts to force his green dreams on an unwilling public. You won’t see him | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Passivity in Crisis
If there is one common theme about Barack Obama’s leadership style in a crisis that runs throughout his time on the national stage and is evident yet again in his response to the attacks in Cairo and Benghazi, it is passivity. Obama has shown, time and again, that he prefers to sit back, keep his distance and see what other people do first before he | Read More »
President Obama Skipped His Intel Brief the Day After the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was Murdered by Terrorists
Marc Thiessen provides a shocker in his Washington Post column: the day after America’s embassy in Cairo was assaulted and the consulate in Benghazi, Libya fell victim to an armed attack that killed four, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the president once again skipped his intelligence briefing, choosing instead to fly off to Las Vegas to fundraise while the world continued to burn. This after being | Read More »
NBC Foreign Correspondent on Obama Egypt Admission: ‘I almost had to sit down when I heard that’
Update 12:45pm: The White House has issued a “clarification” of President Obama’s “not an ally” remark about Egypt. In brief, it amounts to “that’s a technical term and we don’t like technical things.” From Foreign Policy: “I think folks are reading way too much into this,” [White House spokesman Tommy] Vietor said. “‘Ally’ is a legal term of art. We don’t have a mutual defense | Read More »
U.S. Flag Replaced in Yemen Embassy Storming; Once Again, State Didn’t See it Coming
The U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen was the latest to be stormed by rioting protesters, as American flags were burned outside the building and the stars and stripes flying atop it was pulled down and replaced with a white Islamic flag bearing the words “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger.”
Once again, the Department of State appears to have been completely unprepared for this action. Read more >>

The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with | Read More »
The Right Scoop Captures Audio From Inside the Conventional Wisdom Factory
Just yesterday I described for you how conventional wisdom is created. Reporters gather together and come up with it. Then they report it as news. One of the ways reporters do that is to work together to formulate questions between each other. They only have a limited amount of time and they all want a question that helps push the Gang of 500′s narrative. That | Read More »
Free Speech Sacrificed to Irrational Violence

We should be appalled that our government was tweeting denouncements of a US citizen instead of defending American freedoms and values and we should be aghast that the left wants Terry Jones and Sam Bacile prosecuted.
Libya and Egypt Are The Price of Ineptocracy
Far from being a surprise, what happened yesterday on the 11th anniversary of 9-11 was an easily forseen outcome of the dangerous and feckless game the Obama Administration has been playing with American foreign policy.

The World is Burning
In the last 24 hours, the U.S. has observed the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; a violent mob has assaulted the American Embassy in Cairo, ripping down the stars and stripes and attempting to raise an al Qaeda flag in its place (while the embassy staff tweeted their abject apologies); and an organized attack has been carried out on the American consulate in Benghazi, | Read More »
The President and the Arab Fall
Oh if only Islamic radicals would riot over the HHS contraception mandate and gay marriage. If they did, the Administration would fall all over themselves to apologize. Don’t believe me? Consider yesterday’s events well chronicled by Jeff Emanuel. A group in the United States exercised their first amendment rights, which set off rioting yet again among the religion of peace. Egyptians stormed the American Embassy, | Read More »
