George Takei Needs To Take A US History Class
The Syrian “refugee”kefuffle is just a gift that keeps on giving. At this point I’m not all that certain what it is giving and whom is receiving, that will become more clear over time. A couple of days ago, we posted on the growing resistance of governors to the resettlement of Syrian “refugees” in their states. Now we have a new entrant to the scrum, the | Read More »
Why We Can’t Trust Obama’s Bogus Refugee Screening Program
The Obama administration is making a big deal of the “rigorous screening process” used to vet Syrian refugees. This is supposed to convince us that the US government, which is not noted for high levels of competence in things like providing health care to veterans or NOT paying Social Security payments to the deceased, is able to interview refugees in a camp in a third | Read More »
RedState FactCheck: Yes, Refugees In the United States Are Involved In Terrorism
Ever since the bodies stopped falling in Paris on Friday night (US time) and the left began to see the damage done to their master plan to create a “multi-cultural” Europe and United State — a hell-hole replete with female genital mutilation, rape gangs, honor killings, and police no-go zone –by infusing several hundred thousand “refugees” of dubious provenance, they have been lashing out at | Read More »

Five Syrians With Fake Passports Headed For the US Detained In Honduras
In the category of being scared of “widows and orphans“, we have this interesting development: Authorities in Honduras say they have arrested five Syrian nationals who were attempting to travel to the United States using stolen Greek passports, according to Reuters.

Why Won’t Obama Follow the Law And Use A Religious Test For Refugees?
The Syrian refugee crisis has raised a very real concern about the nature of the refugees that will be admitted under Obama’s resettlement plan. While America has historically been open to refugees, it has also drawn the line at admitting people who are inimical with our institutions. For instance, we have banned anarchists and communists from coming to the United States at various times in | Read More »
John Kerry Says Paris Is A Tragedy But Those Charlie Hebdo B**ches Had It Coming
When our Secretary of State starts channeling Ron Paul, it is really time to concede that the terrorists have won. Earlier this year, Islamic terrorists stormed the editorial offices of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and put the staff to the sword. Their big crime, it seems, was drawing cartoons of Mohammed. Because in the word of some American politician, “The future must not | Read More »

How Disastrous Was Obama’s Press Conference In Antalya, Turkey?
Worse than you can possibly believe. The truth is evident. Barack Obama is a tiny, timorous man who is intellectually unable to comprehend the challenge facing the United States and Europe from ISIS and even if he could recognize the challenge he is morally incapable responding. While at the G20 meeting in Antalya, where he will kiss the ring of Vladimir Putin along with any | Read More »
The Perfect Response To People Who Say ISIS Is Not Islamic
Over at Vox.com, their resident foreign affairs expert and anti-Semite anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian terrorist, a guy named Max Fisher, takes up the cause being pushed all over the left this weekend: that ISIS really isn’t Islamic because Islam is really a religion of peace or something like that. This argument has been thoroughly discredited. An easy test of this hypothesis is what do actual Muslims think? Egypt’s | Read More »
Who Let The “JV” Team Put On Lakers Uniforms And Hire Kobe Bryant?
The Obama administration is not only incapable of managing the foreign and defense policy of this nation, it is so far out of touch, its head stuff so far up its pimply, cellulite infuse behind that it really knows less about what is going on in the world than any of William F. Buckley Jr.’s famous “first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory.” | Read More »
How Rand Paul Can Be a Fiscal and Defense Hawk
(R-KY) had a great night in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Going into the fourth GOP presidential debate, the libertarian Republican faced skepticism from several quarters about his ability to stand out in a crowded field that still hasn’t winnowed itself since the departure of Gov. Scott Walker. Paul’s debate performance was aggressive, he had passion, and he drove the discussion at several points. But his misstep | Read More »

Obama’s Syrian Strategy Laughed At By Our Allies
Ever since Vladimir Putin intervened in Syria to save his client, Bashar Assad, and thereby save Russian face, the Obama administration has been at a loss for how to react. They don’t have the guts to confront Putin in any meaningful way — his entire regime is an ongoing criminal conspiracy an could justifiably be shut off from Western travel and access to Western banks | Read More »
